The preorder links are starting to go live. Release day is 20 September! https://katiemacalister.com/books/the-stars-that-we-steal-from-the-night-sky/
Couple of Monday thoughts, bulleted because reasons:
- I’ve ordered some print copies of CONFEDERACY OF DRAGONS and DESPERATELY SEEKING VAMPIRE for the Etsy shop, so if you want a signed copy, be patient. It takes a few weeks to get them into my hot little hands. I’ve also ordered a few other books that were either sold out or are low.
- I miss talking to you about books. Not me yammering at you, but an actual discussion about characters, plot decisions, speculation about what X means, etc. Due to the inability to hide spoiler talk on social media, we can’t really do it here. I have a Discord channel, but that isn’t easy to parse if you are looking for specific discussions (or wish to avoid spoilers on books you haven’t yet read). So I’m looking at a message forum again. Thoughts? Is that something you’d use? Hit the CONTACT link and let me know.
- I need to start writing the next book today. My brain is a bit fuzzy with an allergy headache, so I’m waffling over what that book will be. Why am I telling you this? When I ask you what you want to read next, it has an impact on what I write next.
- Hillary Huber is recording the audio for CONFEDERACY as I type. It will be out in early October. I just called her an aerator instead of narrator in a text message. Voice to text FTW!
This will let people who want separate books for their vampire/dragon collections to have them, and folks who want to buy just one book with both stories have that, as well.
So. If you want the print version of DESPERATELY, you can either pick up the print copy on Tuesday, knowing it’s a smaller book, or wait until October to grab the duet version with SLEIGH ME.
And yes, I’m hoping to have audio versions made of both books. I just need to send them to the audio publisher and see if they want to do them.
Something fun I’m thinking about for the release of YOU SLEIGH ME are very, very limited special edition book boxes with both print (most likely an exclusive hardcover) and e-book copies, as well as a bunch of related items. Think stickers, noms, tchotchkes, etc.
If I like the book box experience, I may offer it a couple of times a year on special edition books. This would NOT be a subscription based event, and would be EXTREMELY limited in number. Like, 25 book boxes available.
