2017 AND 2018 RELEASE SCHEDULE
Bitter Frost — Mythos Academy spinoff #1 — December 2017
I am writing more Mythos Academy books. Woot! This is a spinoff series, and the new books will star Rory Forseti, Gwen’s cousin from Midnight Frost and Killer Frost, books #5 and #6 in the original series. Gwen will NOT be the heroine in these books, although she and some of the other characters from the original series will make cameo appearances in the spinoff books.
As of right now, there will be three books in the spinoff series. I am writing the books for Piper Verlag, my German publisher, so the books will be out in German first, and then I will be self-publishing them in English. Bitter Frost has already been published in German.
I am hoping to release Bitter Frost, book #1, in English sometime in December. We’ll see what happens. Here is the description:
New school year, same old problems . . .
At Mythos Academy, everyone knows exactly who I am: Rory Forseti, Spartan girl and the daughter of Reapers.
Even though I fought alongside my cousin Gwen Frost to save the mythological world from Loki and his evil Reapers of Chaos, I’m still the most hated girl at the academy because of all the horrible things my parents did. I had hoped that this school year would be different, but the other kids just won’t let me forget about my parents.
But something strange is going on at the Colorado academy. First, I run into a Viking guy who dislikes me more than most. Then I notice some odd artifacts in the Library of Antiquities. And worst of all, I start hearing rumors about a new group of Reapers who can summon mythological monsters.
I might be the most hated girl at Mythos Academy, but I’m also the only one who can save it . . .
More information, including the final release date and the cover art, will be coming soon.
Venom in Her Veins — Elemental Assassin #17 — Spring 2018
Gin and the gang will be back with a new adventure. As of right now, after this book, there will be two more books in my Elemental Assassin series.
Also, starting with Venom in Her Veins, I will be self-publishing the series. I am hoping to release the book in spring 2018, but we’ll see what happens.
Note: The title of this book has been changed from Cold Sting to Venom in Her Veins.
Hard Frost — Mythos Academy spinoff #2 — Summer 2018
This will be book #2 of Rory’s adventures. More information coming soon.
Kill the Queen — Kill the Queen #1 — September 2018
Kill the Queen will be similar in some ways to my Elemental Assassin and other series. The books will be written in first-person from the heroine’s point of view. There will also be lots of action, magic, and fight scenes. The first book will also have some flashback scenes. But everything will be on a bit of a grander scale, since, you know, it’s epic fantasy.
I’m really excited about the new series. I’ve always loved reading epic fantasy, and the very first book that I ever wrote was an epic fantasy. So writing an epic fantasy series myself is a dream come true for me.
I’ve set up a Kill the Queen page for the series on my website, and I’ll share more information — cover art, blurbs, excerpts, etc. — as it becomes available.
So this is my book release schedule as of right now. Please note that the release dates could always change due to various publishing whims.
As for other projects, my writing schedule is already full going into 2019, so I won’t have time to write and self-publish another Bigtime story anytime soon. I hope to get back to the series someday, although I have no idea when that might be.
I will be updating this schedule and sharing book covers, descriptions, pre-order links, etc. as they become available on my blog and on my Facebook and Twitter pages. You can also sign up for my newsletter to receive updates, book recommendations, and recipes.
