Truthseeker Day!  

Today is the official release date for TRUTHSEEKER! It is my fifteenth published novel. o.O Go forth to yonder bookstores and see if you can find it! Buy a copy! Buy many copies, so that there will be sixteenth and seventeenth and so on published novels*! :)

ACROSS TWO EXTRAORDINARY WORLDS, TRUTH IS THE DEADLIEST MAGIC

Gifted with an uncanny intuition, Lara Jansen nonetheless thinks there is nothing particularly special about her. All that changes when a handsome but mysterious man enters her quiet Boston tailor shop and reveals himself to be a prince of Faerie. What’s more, Dafydd ap Caerwyn claims that Lara is a truthseeker, a person with the rare talent of being able to tell truth from falsehood. Dafydd begs Lara to help solve his brother’s murder, of which Dafydd himself is the only suspect.

Acting against her practical nature, Lara agrees to step through a window into another world. Caught between bitterly opposed Seelie forces and Dafydd’s secrets, which are as perilous as he is irresistible, Lara finds that her abilities are increasing in unexpected and uncontrollable ways. With the fate of two worlds at stake and a malevolent entity wielding the darkest of magic, Lara and Dafydd will risk everything on a love that may be their salvation—or the most treacherous illusion of all.

A teaser chapter is posted here. I think this one’s a charming little story. A fairy tale, in fact, although being merely the writer, I didn’t actually realize that until I was nearly done writing its sequel. :)

Today I’m blogging over at Suvudu, about what happens when an editor asks a writer (or at least this writer) to do a blog on a specific topic. Tomorrow I will start a month of being the Featured Author at Drey’s Library, which should be fun, and later in the month I’ll be blogging at Bitten By Books. I’ll link to those things as they come up, but there’ll be chances to win copies of TRUTHSEEKER at both those locations during the month.

Speaking of which, I owe several people copies. I will send them as soon as I get paid. :)

*ok, technically, the 16th and 17th novels are already done and dusted, as those are SPIRIT DANCES, the 6th Walker Papers novel, and WAYFINDER, the sequel to TRUTHSEEKER, both of which are out in 2011. Let us not get hung up on details. :)

I'm waiting for my pre-ordered copy to arrive from my bookpusher in WI (I'm in CA). I bought it teaser/plot unread, just because you're the author, so there.

I'll make sure Wayfinder is on the preorder list, too. One thing I like about this indie bricks&clicks used/new shop is the ability to place preorders long in advance, and I do get a bit of discount from her as well. UPS is cheaper, but Priority Mail gets it to me faster!

Or bicker or argue about who killed who.

Jesus Christ, 15th? How fast was that?! And Jim's got 12 Dresden and 6 Alera out, putting him at 18... I predict you overtake him on (*checks his watch*) next Thursday.

Fifteen in five years. My brain is smoking and sputtering. :) And technically I suppose it's fourteen if you don't count "Banshee Cries", but since it's 1/3rd of an anthology I generally find myself counting it.

I think it may take until the Thursday after that to catch Jim, though.... :)

I am waiting for the ebook release... impatiently waiting, I might add!

Ebook?
What format? Kindle's available now. In fact, I know because I just bought it.

Re: Ebook?
oh, hey... so it is *facepalm* I always forget to check Amazon because I'd rather not buy from them if at all possible. I will probably cave and buy it from them now though, rather than waiting for however long it takes for it to show up in one of the bookstores I do like.

Amazon told me Friday that my copy had shipped (although it's not here yet)

Kit,
FYI this post brought me to the teaser chapter which pointed me to Amazon where I decided to buy it for my Kindle. Amazon then also suggested "Urban Shaman", which I'd read the teaser for earlier, and I bought that as well, also for Kindle. (Today was payday, and I've been being good for a couple of days now and not spending money on Coca-Cola Corporation products or other junk food.) I will now settle down and stuff myself with your plots. /plotssses, yesssss/

You'll love Urban Shaman. And Thunderbird Falls. And oh, the rest of them.

Oh, cool. I hope you enjoy them! :)

I got my copy at the Barnes & Noble in Paramus, NJ - but it took some detective work.

It was not in Fantasy, even though that's what it says on the little UPC square. It was in a display in Romance - *shrug*.

But I persevered and now have it. I need to wait for the next full day off I have to read it. Otherwise, I know I'll be up until two am to finish it.

Australia
Has Truthseeker been released in Australia as well as the USA/UK? If not, do you know when it will be available in Australia?
kitmizkit on September 1st, 2010 03:26 am (UTC)
Re: Australia
As far as I know there are no particular plans to release them in Australia (or technically in the UK, either, except it's easy to order through amazon.co.uk). I don't know: were you able to get THE QUEEN'S BASTARD there?

ah, somebody over on FB says it'll be out in oz in 2 weeks :)

Any difference to income to you if I buy it in physical vs. Kindle vs. Apple iBooks?
kitmizkit on September 1st, 2010 09:34 am (UTC)
Nope.
