I have fun and happy news to share, O Best-Beloveds. Attend whilst I explain.
My awesome internet buddy Sarah Madison
) has a new book out!
Actually, it's been out for at least two weeks now, but I literally forgot to post anything last week, for reasons I'll explain in a moment. But first let me enthuse about Walk a Mile
I enjoyed the prequel, Unspeakable Words
very much, so I'm extremely excited to find out what's going to happen to the characters in Walk a Mile
. What I especially loved in UW was how imaginatively and unflinchingly Sarah wrote about telepathy--as in, it would suck.
John Flynn is the accidental and unwilling telepath, and in UW I was cringing on his behalf pretty much every time she described what was happening to him. Imagine not even being able to know if anything you feel is true, or just your partner's wishful thinking--it'd be hell. But reading about it being hell was awesome.
Basically, the emotional H/C was off the hook in Unspeakable Words
. I'm very much looking forward to more of the same, as well as having some of the questions raised by the prequel answered.
So you should totally buy both books. Just saying. ;)
And now, as promised, is the reason I forgot to post last week.
Back in August, I sent a novella to Dreamspinner, because DSP is my boo. DSP's turnaround time for submissions is no more than eight weeks. They are really, really good about this, but eight weeks is still eight weeks. The last day of the eight weeks would've been tomorrow, and by the time last Monday rolled around I was so
incredibly stressed I could barely function. Which apparently included remembering I'd intended to post about Sarah Madison's new novel to LJ. Luckily she's not just talented but also very understanding of authorly freakouts. :D
And then on Friday, I found out that Dreamspinner is going to publish my novella! \o/ Aiden's Angel
will come out between May and June, 2015. I'll post more about it as the release date nears. :D
Congratulations, Sarah! (And me!)
