Writerly Wednesday: The Waning Moon updates

I am deep in edit world – trying to incorporate feedback received from 3/5 of my beta readers. (The other 2/5: you know who you are…menacing glare…)

One of the fun comments I received from perpetual first reader and PSM, Cat, is “you super hated relationships…when you wrote this.”

(Spoiler: I wrote this in 2014-2015 and I was not, as she mentioned, in a good place relationship-wise.) (Apologies in advance, readers who enjoy romantic love stories.)

This means that I’m skewing away from PNR and more towards urban fantasy (but sexy urban fantasy, because Raj…).

Oh, Raj…

I promise that there will be an HEA for Eleanor. Eventually.

(This also means I’m not in a kill-count competition with Colleen Vanderlinden. Must up my game. She is very murdery.)

I got a peek at the “close to finished” cover for The Waning Moon and it is going to be amazing! Here is the tiniest little peek for you…

Just a draft, but squeeeee!

Things are on schedule, and I’m still anticipating a June release date. I’ll have this to my editor in about a week, and when I get her revisions back, I’ll have a better idea of exact timing. Once that happens, I’ll set my release date in stone, get a cover reveal date set, put everything up for pre-order, and inform my legions of adoring fans!


If you haven’t yet picked up a copy of The Cardinal Gate, there’s still time! It’s available exclusively on Amazon right now (including Kindle Unlimited). In addition, if you want more Raj (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want more Raj?), you can sign up for my newsletter. Raj’s origin story and his first millennia of shenanigans is being released through my newsletter in serial format. When you sign up, I’ll send you the first chapter to get you caught up!

As always, if you’ve read, I would really, really appreciate it if you would take the time to review it on Amazon (and Goodreads, too, if you’re so inclined). Thank you!


I’m starting on edits for the third book in the series immediately following getting The Waning Moon to the editor. I’m not set yet on the title…but have a sneaking suspicion there’s going to be a lot  of rewrites on this one (the hazards of writing three books in a row before editing the first means that things often have gone off in a weird direction), but am committed to getting it out 3-4 months after The Waning Moon. Fair warning: Book the third is going to be a whole lotta Raj…

And now – back to work for me!
