Short post this week, but I hope it's one you'll get excited with me about...
A bunch of people have been asking for a while about the status of the Blood Kissed series. Well, today I'm happy to let you know that there's more Jocelyn coming and, as requested over and over again, it's longer--a lot longer :) This announcement was going to wait for cover art, but I needed to celebrate something good today. (Plus, it gives me another easy blogging day when cover art comes in--WOOT!)
I am crazy-happy to announce that the first novel-length Blood Kissed installment, Kiss of Death, will be coming late this summer from Mundania Press. I'm super excited to work with Mundania. I've been really impressed with the quality of books I've read from them, and I love the fact that they are more focused on speculative fiction than romance since the novels are most definitely urban fantasy. (Don't worry--there's still plenty of sex :P)
However, in addition to the length, there have been some other changes. I hope you'll all stick with me for the ride. Oh... and you'll all finally get to meet Remy (*lusty sigh*).
I'm hoping to line up a blog tour to coincide with release, so if you happen to run a book blog and want to be on my contact list for the tour, please let me know in the comments or via email at selestedelaney (at) gmail (dot) com.
Also, I want to give a special shout out to my new editor, Skyla Dawn Cameron. This business is kind of a crazy place. Skyla actually gave me my first "break" in the industry. She was the editor on a charity anthology called Nothing But Red a few years back (2007? 2008?). I subbed a poem to that anthology, and Skyla said yes. There's a special feeling about that first yes (even when you don't make money from it), and since then Skyla has become a good friend and mentor. She has my utmost respect and I'm crazy-happy to finally get the chance to really work with her. So, Skyla, thanks for saying yes again. I'll do my best not to let you down.
