The only update that really matters… So, yes — I figured out what in my brain was going wrong with The Blacksmith. So I’m mostly unblocked and will start working on it again very soon (probably starting in July, but I am going to take it one part at a time — there are six […]
Mostly, my books and the process of getting them on the shelves.
I forgot to say — WRECKED IS FREE! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GXE06JM?tag=melbroaut-20 (If you need an epub version, please contact me http://meljeanbrook.com/contact-meljean/) And I updated my “Covers I Made” page with a few new ones that are among my favorites. Whee! If I ever want to feel really unproductive, I head over to that page and see how many […]
Audiobook News Tantor Audio has purchased the rights to THE KRAKEN KING!! *confetti* I’m not sure when the release date is, but this means it will be coming. Hurray! Jane the Virgin Oh my gosh, this is the best new show I’ve been watching. If you haven’t seen an episode yet, I think it’s on […]
Between the serial and the compiled release, the audio rights were kind of lost in the shuffle! So we’re waiting to hear now whether Tantor is going to pick up the rights again — as soon as I hear anything, I’ll post another update.
I guess I should be giving this away at my other site — millavane.com — but I don’t have a blog set up there. At any rate, the past week has brought up concerns of reader privacy, so I thought I might as well address those here — especially since I’m conducting a giveaway that […]
I’ve gotten a couple of questions about the compiled version of The Kraken King, because links have shown up at various bookstores. I haven’t seen any typeset pages or additional edits yet, but looking at the bookstore catalogs, it looks like: Info for the print/compiled version: Release Date: November 4, 2014 Length: 576 pages Print […]
Live Chat First! Next week (Monday, August 11th from 6:30 – 9:30 Eastern) the awesome Jen Frederick is hosting a chat featuring…me! I’ll be chatting along with special guests Bec McMaster, Delilah Dawson, Karina Cooper, and Kristen Callihan, giving away prizes, and generally being my dorky self. Here is the event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/1446844262249512/ and the groovy […]
There’s a guest post and giveaway up at Paranormal Haven! It’s all about how authors are dirty thieves (okay, so it’s really more of a where-do-you-get-your-ideas post) but there’s also a giveaway! You get a chance to win any one of the Iron Seas books, including The Kraken King! Stephanie also posted her review of […]
First, a few frequently asked questions: (Most of this is information that I included in my newsletter. If you missed that, here is a link! And here is my newsletter link if you want to sign up.) When will the compiled version of THE KRAKEN KING be released? I’m not sure yet! I expect that […]
Go ahead and have at it! I’ll check in now and again to see if anyone has questions (but I won’t give any spoilers for upcoming episodes, sorry!) But if you’re wondering about the world, the story format, or anything else, I’m game. (If you want a discussion forum that doesn’t include my contributions or […]
The serial is finished, because Part VIII is finally here: The Kraken King and the Greatest Adventure!
If you’ve been following along every week, then the end is finally here! And if you’ve been waiting until all of the parts are available, they are now! (I don’t yet know when the compiled version will be available. I will put that information on my “Upcoming” page as soon as I know it.) So […]
The lost history of the Iron Seas Okay, so it’s not really lost! It just hasn’t been explicitly stated in the books. Jen Twimom of That’s What I’m Talking About sent me a few questions about the relationship between Nippon, the Golden Empire, and the rebellion … and I took a few pages to answer […]
Here we are. It’s almost all over. After today, just one week left. This is the longest part, almost 30,000 words, because a lot happens to our heroes in this installment. Not all of it is good. It also ends on a cliffhanger. You might want to kill me when you finish it. But hang […]
Hey, everyone! This is just to let you know that both FIRE & FROST and WILD & STEAMY will be available through June, and then we are going to take the anthologies off sale. All of the individual novellas will still be available! Just not available as a package. (You can see THE BLUSHING BOUNDER here […]
I’m so, so behind! I’m trying to catch up over the next few days, but for now, I’ll just say: You are all wonderful and amazing. And Part VI is here! The Kraken King and the Crumbling Walls Warning! This description might contain spoilers for previous installments! Reunited, Ariq and Zenobia must journey over the […]
So… how did you like Ariq’s vow? And thank you. Swoon seemed to be the response of the week after readers hit the end of Part IV. That was one of my favorite scenes to write, ever. A part of me wondered: Is this over-the-top? But the rest of me just didn’t care. We’re halfway through […]
