book things

 

War has erupted among the five Old Races, and Margrit Knight is responsible for the death that caused it. Now New York City’s most unusual lawyer faces her toughest negotiation yet. And with her gargoyle lover, Alban, taken prisoner, Margrit’s only allies–a dragon bitter about his fall, a vampire determined to hold his standing at any cost and a mortal detective with no idea what he’s up against–have demands of their own.

Determined to rescue Alban and torn between conflicting loyalties as the battle seeps into the human world, Margrit soon realizes the only way out is through the fire….

Today is Release Day for HANDS OF FLAME, the third and final book in my Negotiator series! A bunch of people have picked it up already, but it should be available all around by now. If you guys wanted to do the same thing you did with TQB, and send it back to print by the end of the month…that would be good. :)

My esteemed agent, arcaedia/Jennifer Jackson, has a Nuts & Bolts interview up at Publishers Weekly, and talks about THE QUEEN’S BASTARD therein. (Thanks, Jenn!)
