Chapters one, two, and three of The Undead Pool

We are a month out from publication, and that means early chapter releases! I’m going to send you right to Harper today where all three are, but if you want to simply tease yourself with chapter one, I’ve got that at my website. (Chapter one at website) (Chapters one to three at Harper)

I’ll be on the road in just a month, and I hope we’re done with this cold by then because I’ll be traveling a lot in that first week, hitting a lot of stores over the next two weeks.

Can’t make a signing, and want a signed book? I’ve got two outlets right now, though I don’t know how long B&N’s will last as I only signed about 1000 or so. Here’s the link to B&N,  or you can order from Nicola’s where I can personalize it to you and they will ship overseas.

If you ARE going to be at one of the stores, or if you just want to show your support, the Tour T’s are still available by PayPal.

Guy hasn’t sent that last order in yet, so there’s still time. Shirts come with a Free Vampire Society pin, which I’ll have at each store for the first 100 people through the line as well. Wearing the shirt–from this or a previous tour–will get you into the family photo, which I keep forever, unlike the bunny camp photos which only stay up for a year or so.

Had enough snow?

6117MroCX7L._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_I know I have had enough snow now to remember to be grateful for spring. It can go away. Unfortunately I hear tell there’s another week of sub zero headed our way, and we just have to endure it. And when the snow is almost over the fence, that’s what I’m down to–endurance. Fortunately I was born here in Michigan, and I know what endurance is–it’s what comes before spring. (Anyone but me remember the root children?)

But I have something for you who like to snuggle up with the printed word.

The third installment of Trouble on Reserve is up, and we’ll have the forth tomorrow! Also, I’ve got news about the expected chapter releases. I’ll have chapters 1-3 available tomorrow as well. Not sure what format or where, but when they pop up, I’ll pass it on. (Chapter one is at the website already)

Burrrr. Cold again

Man, just when I thought we might have seen the last of the sub zero, we dip down again. It’s not unusual for Michigan to hit the minus mark, but it’s usually only once a year. I’ve got a feeling that even with the foot of snow the garden is buried under that I will have a few plants not returning in the spring. Zone designations are more like guidelines, not rules. (rolls eyes)

At least I know my bittersweet can take it. And even though it is six this morning, I am thinking on it with a stirring of excitement. I can’t wait to see how it does in my garden this next year.

But you are here for the winners for the Black Magic Sanction give away! The emails have already gone out, so check your in-box to see if you’ve won. You have to email me back by Friday, noon, EST to claim your prize, or I give it to the next person on the list. And the winners are:
April Pearce
Sarah K
Frederick Curry
Krystin
Billi Williams

Congratulations, guys! And thank you for playing along with me.

And since I’ve got your ear, the second installment of Trouble on Reserve should be popping up today. http://www.wattpad.com/36158376-trouble-on-reserve-part-2 Here’s the link if you’ve not “friended” or signed up, or whatever the term is for Wattpad for updates to your fav writers. (I’m still new to it.)

Also, we are very close to being a month out, which means Harper will start releasing entire chapters of The Undead Pool. (Yay!) Keep checking back. I’ll let you know. Chapter one is already at the website. ( Start reading )

Happy Publication day, EVER AFTER

AmazonEAIt’s the last Tuesday in October, and that means the mass market of Ever After has finally reached the shelves! Yay! So for everyone who has been avoiding spoilers until the price drops (in the e-book, too.) or who just wanted their copies to all be mass market (I’m funny like that, as well.) the wait is over.

This one has the Rachel and Trent short Trouble on Reserve  at the back. This is the one that was originally released in the Sony reading app, and I’m soooo glad it’s finally out for a wider consumption. If you already have a copy of Ever After, it’s short enough to read standing in the aisle, and I’ve heard that if you update your electronic copy (especially Kindle) that it will pop in there as well. (If you do, I’ve heard you’ll loose all your notes, highlights, and such, so just be aware.)

If you don’t have your copy of Ever After yet, I’m giving away 31 signed, (yes, signed) e-books on Halloween. To enter, follow the rafflecopter link to enter as many times as you like. It’s basically a fun way for Harper to teach me a new trick–signing ebooks–and increase my mailing list through twitter, FB, and the like. You don’t have to surrender your FB friend list if you don’t want. I’ll be signing and sending the copies out on Halloween night. International is okay, too. It’s all treat, and no trick!

Android users, heads up!

TroubleonReserve 1A few weeks ago I told you about a Trent and Rachel story that was preloaded into the Sony e-reader app. (Which is free, by the way) I promised that it was going to be more widely available, and we’ve taken the first step there with the availability of Android users having access to the app as well. If you don’t have an Android or an Apple device, don’t fret! The rights revert back to me very quickly in comparison to a lot of things, and you know I love to share.

The link below is for the Sony app.

https://itunes.apple.com/US/app/id566383171

This one should be the one for the Droid users. (Thanks, Victoria!)

Kim Harrison exclusive Hollows short preloaded in the new Sony Reader app

I know I said I wasn’t going to post today, but remember a few months ago when I bubbled and burbled about something I couldn’t really tell you about, but I was excited about working on?  It finally came to fruition. I like telling people I’m the queen of delayed gratification, but wow, does it feel good to finally spill the beans.

The new, free, reader app for the iphone, ipad, and ipod touch has a new, never published Hollows short with Trent and Rachel working together. It’s called Trouble on Reserve. The timing of the story sort of puts it between A Perfect Blood and Ever After, but the feeling of it is seriously slanted toward Ever After.  If you get a chance to read it, I’d be curious to know what you think about the “voice.” One of the things I tried to do–besides get a chance to see Rachel and Trent work together–was to give it a more mainstream feel since there’s the chance readers who would normally never pick up the Hollows might be reading it. I am so excited about having it preloaded on the app, I can’t begin to tell you. If you look closely at the mailing Sony released, you can see Into The Woods just on the right of the screen, mostly hidden.

And please don’t fret about not being able to read TROUBLE ON RESERVE if you don’t have the platform. They have exclusive rights to it for a period of time, and then I have other plans for it to be more widely available.

If you want to pick up the app, start here: itunes reader app
