Have you seen this man?
Pretty soon, you might not.
I just found out today that the second Blud book, WICKED AS SHE WANTS, is nearly sold out and therefore out of print—with no plans for a reprint.
That means that if you want to own a paperback copy, this might be your last chance to grab one. I would try Amazon or my local indie, Foxtale Book Shoppe, where I’m happy to sign and personalize one for you.
I’m disappointed, but rest assured that there’s still plenty of book 1, WICKED AS THEY COME, and the recently released book 3, WICKED AFTER MIDNIGHT. And you can always score an e-copy of WICKED AS SHE WANTS on whatever platform you prefer. Thank heavens for those internets, right?
On a more somber note, if you’ve ever thought, “I like that writer on Twitter and will buy that book someday” or “Well, I prefer to wait until a series is over to read it” or “I’m sure there will be a sale soon and I’ll save a dollar”, you might want to reconsider. Midlist authors like myself can only sell more books in a series if the readers show the publishers that they want ‘em. I would love to keep writing in the Blud world, but that’s not decided by me or my editor. It’s decided by cold, hard numbers. And thanks to what I’m guessing was that nasty little tiff between S&S and B&N right when Wicked as She Wants launched, I don’t think it ever had the chance to reach new fans. It’s up for two awards at the RT Book Reviews Convention in New Orleans this year, and it’s my favorite of the Blud novels. Who wouldn’t want to read about a bloodthirsty Princess Anastasia who crashed out of an old suitcase, took a ride on an airship bordello, and fought a unicorn in hand-to-hand combat?
So please adopt your Casper today. Doesn’t he look adorable in his poet’s blouse?
