25 days until Between the Sea and Sky!

So here's a little news roundup.

For one thing, I've seen 2 sales for it on Amazon's BookScan feature. That means somewhere in the Philadelphia area, this book is (or was) ON THE SHELF. Where will it be next? Could you find a copy early? *waits with bated breath* Releasing a book is nerve-racking!!

Thing 2: Now you can preorder the Kindle edition, if that's your thing. I'm sure the Nook edition, etc., will follow shortly. Amazon is usually first to have ebooks posted.

Also, finished copies showed up at my doorstep! And I've got a Goodreads giveaway going on. It ends on the 20th so, if I am reasonably proactive about getting to the post office (no promises) you MIGHT get it by release date.

Also, Magic Under Stone news! I finished the copyedits for Magic Under Stone. And you know what comes after copyedits? It goes to the printer for ARCs!!! It usually takes a little while, still, because everything in publishing takes a little while, but I should have an ARC or two for giveaways fairly soon. Ish.

I'm nervous. My first sequel. As a kid, reading sequels, I was usually disappointed by SOMETHING that happened, because I'd built up an expectation. So it's a little scary to write a sequel knowing that I'll disappoint a lot of people with expectations. Of course, that goes with anything, but I think sequels are worse. Still, I really like this sequel, and it's my longest book to date by a large chunk. I'm very excited for all of you to read it.

And, Dark Metropolis!

Okay, no news about Dark Metropolis, it still doesn't come out for almost two years, but I'm excited, so I just wanted to EXCLAIM the TITLE.


  1. Being the lucky gal who has her hands on an ARC of Sea&Sky, I don't have to play the waiting game :) You're on the weekend TBR pile!

  2. I haven't seen copies at my BN near Philly yet, but I'll let you know when I do! BN has a 2-week shelfstrip for MERMAIDS going up this week and it will be over right before your novel comes out. How is that even fair??

  3. A Backwards Story: NO, that is not fair at all! *weeps*

  4. You shouldn't be nervous about Sea & Sky :) It's a wonderful book! CANNOT wait for Magic Under Stone. Congrats on finishing the copy edits! I'm eagerly awaiting that particular ARC giveaway!

  5. Yay, I can't wait to get those ARCs in my hands to start passing out!

  6. YAY!!!! So ready to read this!! And I'm already entered to win!!

  7. I love mermaids and have no doubt this book will be awesome
