New Release Announcements.
« on: October 21, 2018, 01:03:23 AM »
Anyone can post their new release in this thread. The book should be less than a week old, with a maximum of 2 weeks. Day of release is best.

Rules: State the release date. Thumbnail should not be bigger than the one on Amazon's product page. Ideally, right click on Amazon's thumbnail, and use the image icon to insert it here. You can post the blurb if you want. You can post links to all places it is available. You may mention it is in KU. Only new release posts. No discussion please.

As an example, my last release. (although it is technically outside the range)

Crossover: Its a Jon Hunter thing. Released Oct 1 2018. In KU.


https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HXSRX6G

Jon Hunter is back. Whether he likes it or not!

Be careful what you ask for. A higher being might be listening.
It's been 2 days since Jon Hunter reset the timeline, by locking the Darkness away forever.
2 days of grateful rest. For him.
For the rest of the team, it feels like a year has passed, and they're stuck in a limbo they cannot escape.
Jane wants Jon to get back to work, and a higher power seems to want the same thing.
But Jon isn't ready yet, and Jane thinks he only needs a wakeup call.
But when has anything Jon Hunter related ever been as simple as a wakeup call?
Weird is normal for this team, but this is Crossover, and all you can say is…
…It's a Jon Hunter thing!

Thanks for this, Timothy.

I have a new release that's still just within the two weeks range, so here it is:

The Taste of Home: Released October 10, 2018



Wide: Book 2 Read link

A story of family, memories and food.

Once, Anjali Patel and Mikhail Grikov were soldiers on opposing sides of an intergalactic war. They met, fell in love and decided to go on the run together.

Now Anjali and Mikhail are trying to eke out a living on the independent worlds of the galactic rim, while attempting to stay under the radar of those pursuing them.

Mikhail is on his way home, an anniversary present for Anjali in his pocket, when he suddenly finds himself irresistibly drawn towards an unremarkable storefront and comes face to face with his past.

Meanwhile, Anjali is preparing a special anniversary dinner for Mikhail, only to find that he is late to come home.

This is a novelette of 9300 words or approximately 32 print pages in the "In Love and War" cozy space opera series, but may be read as a standalone.

Unknown to her, the magic of an entire world considers her as a friend.

And that has never happened before.

The Bakery on Gloomland Street: A Hallowind Cove Christmas Story
Release date: December 10
Genre: Cozy fantasy



Wide: Books2Read link

A legendary monster threatens Christmas…

It's Christmas time in the permanently fog-shrouded seaside town of Hallowind Cove, which is also known as the "Harbour of the Weird".

Rachel Hammersmith is new to Hallowind Cove and has recently taken over the bakery on Gloomland Street, after Marie Percht, the previous owner, retired.

However, Marie Percht didn't tell Rachel everything, when she retired. She didn't mention the fog, for starters, and she also didn't mention that her bakery plays a vital role during the Christmas season and not just as a provider of holiday cookies either.

For the Krampus, a yuletide monster from alpine folklore, is coming to Hallowind Cove. And the only thing that can keep him from wrecking the town and ruining Christmas are pastries baked according to a secret recipe. Unfortunately, Rachel has no idea what the recipe is.

However, with the help of fellow newcomer Paul MacQuarie, Rachel will bake up a storm to pacify Krampus and save Christmas.

This is a novelette of 9300 words or approximately 32 pages in the Hallowind Cove series, but may be read as a standalone.

Just Launched: Hunter's Terminus, book 2 in the Hunter Imperium series.

Tech and Magic must come together to survive!

Jon Hunter thinks he's done enough. But since when did he get any say in the matter?
15,000 people, 4 main stations, and 15 large ships, somewhere in the galaxy, unexpectedly looking for a new start.
Jon sees himself as their protector, at least until his people build their own new society, without him in charge.

Thorn has been waiting for Jon Hunter for 82 years.
3100 years ago, Thorn had to save humanity. One week ago, Jon did save humanity. Just different groups.
Both have done the impossible. Both are tired. Both want out.

But in a galaxy newly restored to an older and much more dangerous configuration, just how much rest can either of these men get?
Especially when the three powers in the galaxy don't want a fourth.
Is the galaxy's crossroad, Hunter's Terminus?

I have two more new releases in my Hallowind Cove cozy fantasy series (yes, I've been busy):

The Mermaid of Foghorn Point
Release date: December 16
Subgenre: Cozy fantasy



Wide. Books2Read link

The catch of the day at the Croaking Foghorn is not at all as expected…

Strange things keep happening in the permanently fog-shrouded seaside town of Hallowind Cove, earning it the nickname "Harbour of the Weird".

Paul and Rachel's date at The Croaking Foghorn pub is derailed, when it turns out that local fisherman Eddie Bramwell brought home no fish, but one hell of a story.

But Paul has one hell of a story of his own to tell and he's not at all sure how Rachel will react.

This is a short story of 3400 words or approximately 15 pages in the Hallowind Cove series, but may be read as a standalone.


The Standarounds of Twilight Gardens
Release date: December 17
Subgenre: Cozy fantasy



Wide: Books2Read link

Sinister shadows menace a family…

Strange things keep happening in the quirky little seaside town of Hallowind Cove, earning it the nickname "Harbour of the Weird".

When the Hutchinson family buys the beautiful Beauregard mansion on Gloomland Street, they believe they've made the deal of a lifetime.

But unfortunately, no one told them about the fog that envelops Hallowind Cove for three hundred and forty days a year. Or about the mysterious shadows that stand around Twilight Gardens, staring at random houses…

This is a short story of 3300 words or approximately 14 pages in the Hallowind Cove series, but may be read as a standalone.

Jeff and Ethan, if you want a new release spotlight at the Speculative Fiction Showcase or the Indie Crime Scene respectively, let me know.

Meanwhile, I released a new story in my Silencer pulp series:

A Valentine for the Silencer
Release date: February 12, 2019
Genre: Pulp thriller



Valentine's Day 1938: All Richard Blakemore a.k.a. the masked crimefighter known only as the Silencer wants is to have a romantic dinner with his beautiful fiancée Constance Allen.

But on his way to his date, Richard happens upon a mugging in progress. Can he save the victim and make sure that young Thomas Walden has the chance to propose to his girlfriend? And will he make it to dinner with Constance on time?

This is a short Valentine's Day story of 7200 words or approx. 24 print pages in the Silencer series, but may be read as a standalone.

Wide: Books2Read link

And because Richard Blakemore, the protagonist of the Silencer series, is a pulp writer in the 1930s, I always thought it would be fun to see his fiction. And when I wrote a series of sword and sorcery stories last summer, the crazy idea was born to pass them off as the work of Richard Blakemore, forgotten pulp fiction writer of the 1930s, and write an introduction as the "editor" who rediscovered these stories.

I just published the first two stories in Thurvok series under Richard Blakemore's and my name, so here they are:

The Valley of the Man Vultures
Release date: February 4, 2019
Genre: Sword and sorcery



On his way to Krysh, a city of fabled riches, the sellsword Thurvok must first pass through the Valley of the Accursed Blood.

Traditionally, those travelling to Krysh make offerings at the temple at the entrance of the valley in exchange for protection on their journey. But Thurvok scoffs at such superstition and decides to continue his journey without any divine protection. His refusal to make an offering infuriates the temple priest Alberon who promptly curses Thurvok.

Thurvok is not much bothered by this – he does not believe in curses. However, the valley holds dangers that don't particularly care whether Thurvok believes in them or not.

This is a short story of 4400 words or 15 print pages in the Thurvok sword and sorcery series, but may be read as a standalone. Includes an introduction and afterword.

The Tomb of the Undead Slaves
Release date: February 4, 2019
Genre: Sword and sorcery



The sellsword Thurvok and his friend and companion Meldom, thief, cutpurse and occasional assassin, venture into the Rusted Desert to seek the tomb of the ancient king Chagurdai and the legendary treasure supposedly hidden there.

But once Thurvok and Meldom venture into the tomb, they find that a treasure is not all that's buried there.

This is a short story of 4100 words or 13 print pages in the Tales of Thurvok sword and sorcery series, but may be read as a standalone. Includes an introduction and afterword.
