SELENE Cover Reveal, and More

come n say 'hello' to my new friend Some pretty grand news today: a Selene cover reveal up over at Mel’s “My World.” (You may have noticed the new banner up at the serial site.) The cover comes via Indigo Chick Designs, and I can’t recommend Skyla’s work enough. She also does editing and ebook/print formatting.

The Selene ebook and paperback are scheduled for release in January, and they will include both the prequel short story Brother’s Keeper AND the sequel Just Ask. There are other stories that take place between Just Ask and the events in the Dante Valentine series, but I haven’t told those yet. I likely will not for a while, due to time shortage. I am considering a Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaign to tell the story of Selene’s years as a mercenary and her return to stay with Nikolai, but I’m not sure there’s enough interest in the characters for me to raise enough cash to make it a viable project for me.

Speaking of which, the prize mailings for the SquirrelTerror campaign have hit an unexpected snag, but I do plan to get them out the door before the end of December.

Lastly, there may be some news on the Steelflower front. If things go well I may be able to take the financial hit involved in writing a sequel, which is, I’m sure, welcome news to fans. It will definitely be a liability, though, and it depends on a lot of other scheduling stuff that’s up in the air right now.

Today is for going through the revised draft of Kin and layering in small details in the new scenes. Also, as soon as it warms up above freezing, Miss B and I might attempt a run. Yesterday we went for a ramble and stuffed her nose with interesting new smells, but we both need a hard run to work all the fidgets out. I’m crossing my fingers that the weather report is accurate and that we’ll get somewhat of a melt today.

Onward into the breach, dear Readers…

Looovely new cover. Skyla did AMAZING work on it.

As for Steelflower news! Yes! I’ve not started the series yet, and so want too. But when I saw there wouldn’t be anymore, I was afraid to start it and be drooling for more. So, now I will start! 😀 Thank you!

*cough* I mean…ah, hell, KICKSTART ALL THE THINGS.


YES! I second this!


Please, please – Steelflower sequel! I cannot tell you how many times I have reread that book! Revisting characters in previously read novels is my version of comfort in times of stress. I would also gladly contribute to a Selene/Nikolai campaign.

I’m so very psyched about the Selene stories being released together, but I’m dying inside not knowing what happens after. I’ve been checking in periodically ever since Just Ask was first posted as a serial years ago hoping to find that you’d written more about Selene. So please, please, please seriously consider that Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaign. I’d be one of your first supporters.

Selene is one of those stories that has stayed with me since inception and I have always wanted more. I would def pay for it and I sure hope others would too. Kickstart the hell out of it please. Great cover! Nice work Skyla.

I love Selene, would definitely contribute to a Kickstart campaign!


oooh, yes, more books.. we wants more books..

and that is a very gorgeous cover for Selene..


Oh, so much yes for more Selene and more Steelflower! where do I contribute?


The cover is beautiful. I’ll be anxious to buy my copy of the Selene book as soon as it’s available.


Lilith-Steelflower is truly an excellent book, and there are so many readers who are begging for the rest of the series. In a genre where characters and storylines can start to blend together, the Steelflower universe is unique. I have been searching this morning for news of the series and have found multiple discussions with readers clamoring for more books. I understand your plate is overflowing and the advances in technology have made it more difficult to protect the stories you have birthed and labored over, but please consider devoting some time to Steelflower.

A loyal reader


I think you should definitely start a Kickstarter campaign for Selene’s sequel. I’ve been wanting to read it since I read Selene (before the first site crashed), and am really happy to hear that you’re releasing an official version so I can easily get it on my ebook reader for a re-read.
