Get your T4-Angel seeds here!

Itomatofreebie2017‘ve got some good news if you wanted one of the promotional packets of T4-Angel seeds and were not able to attend a signing. Tim and I have a few hundred left, so if you want one of these bad boys, (they are really beefsteak tomato seeds) send me a SASE. (an envelope with your address and stamps on it so all we have to do is drop the packet in and mail it to you.)

If you’ve never send me a SASE, the instructions and address are at the website here: SASE instructions.

Unfortunately because these are real seeds, we can not ship overseas.

Also, if you heard about the missing chapter seven from THE TURN that features Ceri and Al and fits in between chapter six and seven of the published text, it is now available here: Original Chapter Seven.

Thank you for a great release day!

WaylaidCoverB&N

Amazon

Thanks for a great release day, guys, and I’m hopeful “Waylaid” has a great first week. I don’t normally watch Amazon or B&N lists, but “Waylaid” is doing well, popping up in Espionage, Romance, and Mystery, which is a good place for it to be, I think. I’m hopeful that it remains strong on the list for at least the rest of this week.

A special thank-you to those of you who are leaving reviews because they help to sanction the book itself–that it’s viable and has worth–and justifying my work seems to be one of my goals right now, even though it’s not the way I typically function. So thank you. Every review helps.

I’m hopeful that a lot of the readers from the Hollows who fell in love with Rachel and the gang will see your reviews and give Peri a try. Peri is not Rachel. She has her own set of issues, because really, how could there be another Rachel? But the core of strength and determination, and yes, a few trust issues are there, revolving around the man she loves. Sound familiar? So spread the word to your Hollows-reading friends who might have missed it.

For those of you resistant to change, I wrote this so you can check Peri out for a dollar. Yes, I know you can buy an entire book for a dollar if you go to the right place, and I fully expect “Waylaid” to be included at the back of something in a few years, but think of your job. Do you really think it’s fair when your boss of twenty years asks you to take a pay cut to match the incoming wage of the guy who just started?

I’m hopeful people read “Waylaid” and give Peri a chance now that the mass market of The Drafter is coming out in a few weeks and there will be a second price drop on the electronic version.  If you go on Amazon, they have both a paperback for 11.73 and a mass market for 7.74. I believe the paperback with the original cover is UK, and the mass market with the blue cover is the U.S. version. I’m not sure why the UK version is popping up first, but this is the one you want.

Bloodroot

For your visual consumption today, I have for you, my Bloodroot. I’ve had them in the ground for a few years, and not only are they beautiful in the spring, but they give the Mason bees something to eat when it’s still cold. Mason bees are America’s original bees, and pound for pound, they pollinate better and are not aggressive. It took me five years to encourage them to move into my garden beside my back door, five years of planting food sources, eliminating pesticides/fertilizers, and bringing in the tubes they like to live in in sort of a communal subdivision of individual bees. I look for them every year, and I’m delighted to be able to share them with you again.

Drafter mass market cover

Draftermm

A-a-a-and we have a new cover! Isn’t is beautiful? I love that she’s running to something, not away from. Running with purpose! Come April 19th, the mass market will be available in the U.S., so if you’ve been waiting for that ebook price drop, it’s almost here. Me, I was always a mass market girl when I was growing up, so I’m excited to see The Drafter coming out in this format.

As a bonus–because you know I like to put extra things in my releases when I can–the novelette “Sideswiped” will be included. It will be the first time this prequel to The Drafter will be in print, and I’m very pleased it will be available to my readers who don’t use ebooks. The second full book in the series, The Operator, is scheduled for release November of this year, and after that comes, The Turn, which is what I’m actually writing right now. (You may have been getting hints of Al, and Quen, and Alice, and maybe Takata on FB,)

Sideswiped: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

But you know I can’t stop there, and to help mark the Peri Reed Chronicles moving forward and the new Hollows novel in 2017, I let myself have some fun and wrote a novella that combine the two worlds. Waylaid will be out April 4th, and I should have a cover to show you next week.

Waylaid/Leylined: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

Stringing these releases together will be Tim’s and my “I’M BROKEN, DON’T FIX ME” campaign. I”m still working on the logistics, but there will be shirts, and give-aways, and the chance to get personalized some of my backlist titles that have the broken heros I love so much.

FirstTruthIS

To kick off the backlist personalization’s, I’m going to go way back and offer from now to March 31, FIRST TRUTH and HIDDEN TRUTH through Nicola’s books.

Don’t let the pure fantasy covers put you off if you’re a diehard urban fantasy reader. I won’t kid you and try to tell you they aren’t fantasy, they are, but there’s no purple prose here, the language and attitudes comfortable.

These were not only the first books I got published, but the very first book(s) I had ever written, and if you want to watch an author learn her craft, this is a great place to see it. (laugh) But the characters still ring true to me after all these years. The books were marketed for the adult market, but I am totally comfortable with recommending them to younger readers. They are also a great vehicle to open up a safe discussion about prejudice if you care to read these at the same time as your kids.

HiddenTruth

But broken heros. There are here. Alyssa is broken in her family woes, Strell fights a lifetime of perceptions, and though it takes me to the second book to wrap it up, Useless battles his past. Don’t get me started about Lodish, my first book boyfriend. (He’s as mischievous as Al, but the good twin.) And yep, there be dragons, here, which is probably why I knit them. They still haunt me.

To order a persolalized copy from Nicola’s, just click the books. Please make a note as to who you want it personalized to in the note section when you order. Any questions, just email orders@nicolasbooks.com International is okay. The site says they might not be available, but they are. If you order both, I’ll slip in a signed cover flat for The Drafter. 😉

My own little Dragon Con

Quail Ridge Books and Music, Raleigh, NC

I believe this is my 4th year signing in Raleigh, and it just keeps getting better. here I am with all my roadies, doing the classic “kiss-kiss.” Ah, Kisten, you may be gone, but you are not forgotten. That’s the great thing about books. They will always be there even when new characters come to entertain.

( If you are looking for the photos that the Premere team took, they are at KimHarrisonTour.com )

QuailRidgeRoadies

And we had dragons! Not just one, but two! I’ve been watching this one come along piece by piece on instagram if I’m not mistaken. He’s a beauty!

The second had a few . . . “military?” modifications? It’s hard to see, but it’s a para dragon, ready to jump.

QR2

It’s almost as if is’t my own little Dragon Con! Yes, I went there. I’m hoping we get a few more at Atlanta, seeing as this weekend is, ahem, Dragon Con.

DragonCon

I can’t believe how many of you are staying past the end of the signing to get a picture in front of that tour bus! Thank you, guys! I’ve always said I’ve got the best readers.

Last night’s signing was great!

I’m driving through the mountains as I write this, settled at the back of my bus, happily working as we head toward Quail Ridge Books tonight at Raleigh NC. (7:00!)

Last night, though, Tim, Spunk, and I were in Lexington to sign at Joseph-Beth. Lexington, KY has been one of my usual stops for a while now, and being on the bus, and not at the mercy of the gods and goddesses of the air, I had the time to do some media. Here I am with Lauren on their “Books and Beyond” segment at ABC36. If it is put on line, I’ll link to it here. Short and sweet, and no spoilers–well, no big ones. (Also, the pod-cast for yesterday’s Cincinnati’s Cover to Cover has gone up. Listen in here.)

ABC36

Trish, from Jo-Beth, came out to the studio, but it wasn’t until later that day at the store that things started to really get going.

Me and my Drafter roadies  at the store. We gave away tour T’s, and a Kim Harrison tote bag, and then even the big Drafter banner.

JoBethLexRoadies

The event was very laid back, with questions ranging from how to break into print all the way to my growing milkweed patch. (If you’re looking for the knitted Monarch butterfly, I’ve got a post here.)

I love it when the kids come out, because if they see books are important to mom, they will be important to them.

A close up of Spunk and his new friend. We both think they look like firelizards. I love seeing the dragons from the knit along. (Want to knit one? Get started here.)

A few people stayed until the end, and we got a great shot in front of the bus.

Tonight Tim and I are at Quail Ridge Books and Music, in Raleigh NC. Hope to see some of you there!

I’ve got the entire album of pictures of the event at the website : Joesph-Beth, Lexington

Happy Pub Day! (and interview with Charlaine Harris)

TDhcCoverIt’s my happy publication day! And I’ve got a treat for you as Charlaine Harris and I did an informal interview over at USA Today HappyEverAfter. At the bottom of the interview, there’s an unexpected eight minutes of the audiobook. January LaVoy makes Peri Reed sound good! I couldn’t help but click it, and I lost myself.

Sideswiped out today

sideswipedSm

 

Every hero, even the accidental ones, have a beginning.

Silas’s radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but the darling of Opti’s research has enough clout not to care, until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it.

Love can’t alter time, and sometimes, even being able to rub out a single mistake isn’t enough.

Today is the day! Sideswiped is out, and with it is the first few pages of The Drafter.

If you were pulling your hair out this weekend trying to get those back legs attached, you have my apologies. I only meant to post the instructions up to the hips. I had a very helpful video on how to actually attach them sitting on my desktop to go with the printed instructions. Ah, they are now up and online. I’m so sorry. It was mean of me to have given you the printed instructions without the video, but I didn’t cut them off at the right spot and I gave you more than I realized.

For the updated instructions and ALL the videos, check out the link to the website.
