As a nice little Christmas gift to us all, Stacia Kane has put a free short story from the Downside series up on her website. Stacia says -
It's only 2300 words or so, but I think it's kind of fun. It's a story about the first night of Haunted Week back in 1997 (Haunted Week is the event that changed everything in my world."
Lots more info if you follow the link!
Kim Harrison has also posted the first chapter to the next exciting Hollows installment, Pale Demon due out in February.
Fans of Leanna Renee Heiber' s Strangely Beautiful series should take note that a novella in the series "A Christmas Caroll" is currently available in the anthology A Midwinter Fantasy in digital format at most etailers. You'll have to wait until October 2011 to read it in a hard copy. Renee also reports -
I will have some exciting news about Strangely Beautiful book 3, and the series in general, to share with you soon. As many of you know I'm also launching a new Gothic Victorian YA series; MAGIC MOST FOUL with Sourcebooks, releasing November 2011, I should have cover art near the new year. And there's the musical, which is humming along! More on that soon too.
Every blessing and peace, may angels be ever with you this Holiday season. The Guard sends you their light and love.
