Publishing Updates

Uncategorized

It’s been a while since my last post, and I’ve got a lot of news to share! 

The first is that in the past couple of months, I signed a book on with Mocha Memoirs Press, and I am SO excited to see it get published. 

Trail Blazer is a weird fantasy western and book one of a duology, and my main character Dahlia was an incredibly fun person to write, so I can’t wait until you get to meet her on release day. 

The second big piece of news is the announcement of book two in my LGBT+ urban fantasy novel series, “Women are Magic,” which focuses on Helena and Iris’s continued journey after the dire events of book one, The Witch & the Wolfwood, which released March 30, 2021. 

The book, titled The Devil & the Dreamerwill be finished soon and should be available to order by the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022, so you won’t have to wait long at all. 

And lastly, I was incredibly proud to have earned a position as a semi-finalist in the Writers of the Futurecontest first quarter of 2021 for one of my short stories. I got some truly humbling and inspiring advice on my work from David Farland himself, which was just an incredible experience. 

Keep an eye out for future reveals of book covers and release dates!

While tracking down straying spouses is pretty typical P.I. work, tailing a woman who left her husband for a magic-worshipping cult is new.

Something about this case hasn’t felt right from the start, but Helena’s got bills to pay–magical beasts and murderous kidnappers be damned.

The Witch & the Wolfwood is going to be released on February 28, 2021!

We Who Burn is out NOW!

Blog Articles

Happy Sunday! Can you start to feel that crisp autumn breeze in the air?

Whether you’ve spent your morning lazily sleeping in or getting your chores done, one thing you need to do today is get your copy of We Who Burn, which is out right this very minute!

Petra Freyrsdótter can raise an entire village from the dead with her magic—so why can’t she bring her lover back to life?

Petra has spent the last two years trying to resurrect Orrus, the man she loves. And even though she’s a powerful necromancer, nothing works, and Orrus is perpetually stuck as a listless shade at her side while she searches all of Aelamor for a way to restore him. 
But when Petra gets caught by a priest for the God of Truth and Light—an order that burns necromancers at the stake—instead of killing her, he presents her with a strange gambit: If she can retrieve a blade that was stolen from his order, the priest will not only let her live, but will also reveal what he knows about how she can fully resurrect Orrus.
Although making a deal with a burned brother isn’t a good idea, Petra is desperate and out of options. Apart from saving her own life, she must do what she can to fulfill her promise to Orrus so they can be reunited in the world of the living.
When Petra finally tracks down Caspar, the thief who stole the blade, she can’t help but feel attracted to and intrigued by the handsome stranger whose hatred for the order is as strong as her own. 
Everything falls apart, however, when Petra and her companions are captured by the mad priests who serve the God of Truth and Light and they discover the secret of the blade and the vile ritual the order intends to use it for.
Now, Petra and Caspar must work together to keep the blade out of the priests’ clutches and bring the entire order to its knees before it’s too late. And she must be willing to risk everything—including her chance to be with Orrus again—if she wants to make sure the horrible future the order has planned can never come to light.

I hope everyone’s been doing well given the circumstances.

Last month in July, it was my distinct pleasure to have my short story, “Precipitation” published in The Sirens Call 50th issue! If you’d like to read it, along with many other wonderful short stories, you can download a free copy here.

In other news, my urban fantasy novel, The Witch & the Wolfwood is going to be getting a cover soon, and I am beyond excited! This will be my first book with publisher Filles Vertes (FVP), and I’m looking forward to doing a cover reveal soon. This title, featuring smart-aleck private eye Helena Birch, will be available in April 2021, hopefully in time for an in-person return to JordanCon here in Atlanta.

Last year I had an idea for a story pop into my head, and it was so in depth that I plotted the book in about an hour and wrote it in a month and a half. Now, that very same book is coming out in just a few days! 

We Who Burn is a dark/paranormal fantasy novel about a necromancer trying to resurrect her lost love while being hunted by a witch-burning order with a world-destroying scheme in their sights. If you’re a fan of sword and sorcery, a kick-ass female protagonist, and a little bit of romance, then pre-order a copy of We Who Burn now! (You don’t even have to wait that long!)

Mercury in Retrograde Audiobook and other updates!

Blog Articles

Hello and Happy Halloween! I have a ton of updates with a little something for just about everyone.

Big news for the A Shot in the Dark series!

First of all, I am beyond pleased to announce that as of just a few days ago, the Mercury in Retrograde audiobook went LIVE on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes!

I am so excited for everyone to hear it because my audiobook producer, Amanda Bell, did a fantastic job and really breathed life into her representation of my characters.

Secondly, as Halloween is right around the corner, and since it’s one of my favorite holidays out of the year (I mean really, we should always celebrate when mosquitos die amirite), I’m doing a mini-sale!
Both Mercury in Retrograde and book two in my “A Shot in the Dark” series, Grand Cross, will be discounted to just $2.99!
And even better news in that series is that I will be participating in NaNoWriMo this year and getting to work on book three, Opposition! Soon, you’ll learn the truth of the orachal trade in Sol and discover how Aralyn and company are going to get out of their latest scrape without pissing off half the galaxy. (That last part is, admittedly, not Aralyn’s strong suit.)

A little something for the fantasy readers…

And, if you’re a fairy tale lover, then you’re going to adore some of the anthologies I’ve got coming out with one of my publishers! Right now, Beyond Neverland, a Peter Pan retelling featuring my short story, “Never Say Goodbye,” and Beyond the Woods, a Little Red Riding Hood retelling featuring my short story, “Wolf’s Bane,” are available for purchase and pre-order on Amazon, respectively.
You’ll be able to find out what happened after Wendy left Neverland and what happens when Red grows up and confronts Big Bad!
Seriously, you will not want to miss these anthologies!

Conventions

I recently attended the first ever year of MultiverseCon here in Atlanta, GA, and it was honestly amazing. You would never have known it was a first year convention seeing as things went so smoothly.
I got to meet one of my favorite authors, Seanan McGuire, and get her autograph on some books, as well as get some amazing advice from her and Cat Rambo, the former two-term SFWA president (and prolific short story teller).
There were several big time indie publishers there, fantastic authors galore, and many, many more awesome things (like Strongbad, what?!). They also raised funds for RAICES.
I plan on going back next year and hope to see many of you there!

And for the romance lovers…

A friend of mine recently released her first ever romance novel, In Too Deep! It’s a sweet office romance guaranteed to make you swoon.
It just came out October 28, so make sure you grab your copy!

If you want to win a free copy of Mercury in Retrograde on audiobook, follow me on Twitter and Facebook (@MeretheWalther). The winner will be announced December 1, 2019!

That’s all the updates I have for now, but I will have excited news coming up soon!

Happy Halloween!

Cross Faded is out NOW!

Blog Articles

The last thing Ezra Ashford expected to see in his apartment is a woman in medieval armor hunting a scarab the size of a Great Dane. But being an addict can do terrible things to the brain, and while he’s no stranger to hallucinations, this seems a little too real to be just in his head.
Despite the woman’s warnings for him to forget everything he’s seen, Ezra’s once tepid existence is quickly overwhelmed by bizarre monsters. From the siren in his local bar to the fly-faced man packing fish at his day job, he can’t seem to stop seeing these creatures everywhere. Ezra can’t tell if he’s burned out or if he’s going crazy like his mother did years before.
And doing what comes naturally to him—getting high to forget it all—isn’t working either. Ezra soon finds himself in a turf war between two rival dealers that lands him directly in police crosshairs, wanted for arson and murder.
The harder Ezra tries to ignore his problems, the more abysmal things become. And the threat grows substantially graver once he finds out that an ancient monster, Bandon, has taken a sudden and irrevocable interest in him; and that all the others he’s taken a liking to have disappeared to parts unknown, never heard from again.
After a lifetime of running from his problems and chasing down his feelings with every new high, Ezra feels powerless to stop his downward spiral out of control. Lost in a world he feels rejected him and plagued by monsters that may or may not be in his head, Ezra must try to find out what’s happening before it’s too late and his personal demons end up consuming him completely.

Cross Faded is the first of one of my new urban fantasy series, and just came out on May 4! You can get your ebook copy at Amazon for only $2.99.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

I hope your day is filled with whatever you love, be it the people in your life or the cheap book discounts which, let’s face it, are what I’M really excited about.

I’m pretty pumped to announce a couple things that have been in the works, and since it’s been a hot minute since I posted on here, you’re definitely overdue for it.

The first good news is that today, Mercury in Retrograde is only .99c on the Kindle store. Whoo! Who doesn’t love cheap books?

I’m really excited to also announce that I got in touch with a wonderful voice actress recently who will be doing the AUDIOBOOK for Mercury in Retrograde, which I am absolutely over the moon about. More details to come!

The second great—and dare I say even better news—is that the sequel to Mercury in Retrograde, Grand Cross, is now available for pre-order in the Kindle store as well.

In case you haven’t heard if you’re not following me on Facebook or Twitter (and really, why aren’t you?), this awesome book will be out April 2, 2019 for both paperback and ebooks alike.

And, as a bonus, for the duration of time between now and the release date, Grand Cross will also be just .99c! After that, the price will return to $4.99 for the Kindle version, so I’d recommend grabbing it soon.

Lastly, I can’t believe it’s almost time for Cross Faded, my new urban fantasy novel, to get released by the awesome people over at Crazy Ink! This novel was a long time in the works, so I’m really eager to get this series rolled out because fantasy was always my first love in writing, and I adore creating magical universes.

I’ll be doing a cover reveal sometime in the next month so you can get a visual on just how rocking this story is gonna be.

In the meantime, enjoy your day of love, have fun, and buy some cheap books.

Stay weird!
