Publishing updates!

Blog Articles

It’s been a while since my last post, and I’ve got some 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.

Book two, titled The Devil & the Dreamerwill be finished soon and should be available to order by the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022, which means 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 Future contest (first quarter of 2021) for one of my short stories. I got some truly inspiring advice on my work from David Farland, which was an incredible experience.

I hope everyone is staying safe out there! Keep an eye out for future reveals of book covers and release dates.

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!
