I am so INCREDIBLY excited to announce that the project I’ve been hinting about has a name: THE BRIDGE KINGDOM, and that it will be published in 2018 by Audible Originals with the wonderful Jessica Almon Galland as editor!!
THE BRIDGE KINGDOM is the first instalment of a fantasy duology (2 books). It’s about a princess trained to be a lethal spy who is sent to marry the king of an enemy realm. But complications arise when she finds herself falling for the man she was raised to destroy.
But, you all say, doesn’t Audible only release audiobooks? Yup! Which is what makes this project a little different. Audible Originals is a group within Audible that publishes/produces novels that are first available exclusively as audiobooks. Audio is the fastest growing segment of the publishing industry, and I know many of you read/listened to my Malediction Trilogy audiobooks, which were also produced by Audible. Now I know some people prefer print books and ebooks, but do not despair. THE BRIDGE KINGDOM will be coming in those formats, too!
This is what Jessica has to say about the novel:
“I’ve read hundreds of manuscripts in my career, and THE BRIDGE KINGDOM has the most jaw-dropping first chapter of them all. I’m thrilled to say the momentum doesn’t let up from there. Combine the steamy romance of Outlander with the thrills and power struggles of Game of Thrones, and you’ll have an idea of what you’re in for. An immersive story that packs in so many feels, THE BRIDGE KINGDOM has everything you want in an Audible download. You’ll be making up excuses to keep your earbuds in!”
—Jessica Almon Galland, Executive Editor, Audible Originals
A huge thanks to my fabulous agent, Tamar Rydzinski, for negotiating the deal!
I’m super excited to share more about THE BRIDGE KINGDOM, so stay tuned for covers, teasers, and more. In the meantime, please add it to your Goodreads shelves and help the word!
GIVEAWAY WINNER HAS BEEN NOTIFIED
I have really big and exciting news to share on February 14th, and to celebrate, I’m giving away a Kindle Paperwhite plus the Kindle editions of my novels to one lucky newsletter subscriber.
Yes, this is my way of trying to entice more of my fanbase to sign up for my newsletter. More and more, I’m finding it’s a challenge to reach my fanbase with the latest news and developments on my novels. Social media feeds are no longer timelines that allow you to see the posts of everyone you follow in logical order, but rather curated feeds where the platform shows you what it thinks you want to see. To bypass this problem, I have to spend lots of money on advertisements in order to reach my followers. By contrast, a newsletter reaches every single person who subscribed to it. So rather than giving my money to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, I’m going to host a giveaway for my awesome fans!
A Kindle Paperwhite
The Kindle edition of The Malediction Novels Boxed Set (Stolen Songbird, Hidden Huntress, Warrior Witch, and The Broken Ones)
