Vampires and hunters and mermen, oh my!

George the Groundhog2

George the groundhog, who makes his home near the building I work in.

Can you believe it’s already March? After nearly three weeks of snow and ice here in Raleigh, North Carolina, it’s going to be 70 degrees today! That just gives me hope that the groundhog was wrong.

March has me thinking of the busy spring and summer I have on tap. Stay tuned for the cover reveal for Blood and Ghosts (Blood #2) sometime in March. The book releases on April 20th! By BloodandRainFSthe way, for those of you who read the post on series, Blood and Ghosts actually has a happily-for-now (HFN) at the end rather than a cliffhanger. Of course, there’s still one more book to come which will have several well-deserved HEAs.

Also coming soon? The last book in the Mermen of Ea Series, Running with the Wind is tentatively set for release on June 8th! I can’t tell you how excited I am (and a little sad IntoWindtoo) to be wrapping up the series. And to answer a question I’ve had a few readers ask me, yes, I am considering a follow up book or series based on two secondary characters. I promise I’ll keep you posted!

What else is in the works? A Blue Notes Series Valentine’s novella featuring a very special wedding, a cop/lawyer contemporary novel written with my good friend Cody BlueNotes[2ndEd]LGKennedy (writing under his adult pseudonym, Aisling Mancy), the last book in the Blood series, and another contemporary novel. Between writing and editing, I can barely breathe! But that’s a good thing.

I’ll be attending a bunch of conferences this year, including GRL 2015 in San Diego, Animazement 2015 in Raleigh, RainbowCon 2015 in Tampa, and Yaoicon in San Francisco. Oh, and I’ll be attending my first ever Romance Times (RT) conference in Dallas in May to kick the conference season off. I hope to see you at one of the events – be sure to come and say hello!

Stay tuned for the Blood and Ghosts cover reveal coming soon. Reese Dante’s cover is amazing, as always! I’ll be running some cool giveaways, including one for a Doctor Who “Wibbly Wobbley Timey Wimey” pendant leading up to release day. And, speaking of giveaways, congratulations to Dan, who won an ebook for commenting on the series post.

Stay warm and think spring! -Shira
