Don’t forget Family Matters: A Halloween Interlude is FREE on Smashwords until April 30th with coupon code GE76V.
Hello! This post is to announce a brand new, soon-to-be-published short story in the Harborview Immortals series titled Family Matters: A Halloween Interlude. It takes places about three weeks after the final events of Family Matters on Halloween night. While it isn’t required reading for the series (it was basically an excuse to write something smutty), I hope that those of you who do decide to purchase it will enjoy reading it. And bonus points if you spot the references to other stories that were thrown in there.
Here’s an excerpt from the beginning (spoilers, obviously, for Family Matters): Continue reading “Upcoming short story!”
And no, it’s not that awesome thing that happened on The Walking Dead tonight although I haven’t been able to stop smiling about it for the past three hours. 😀
The OTHER reason I’m smiling is because the Family Matters cover is done! Well, it still needs to be lettered, but the image itself is finished, and I’m super happy with how it turned out. My most heartfelt thanks to G. Raven for doing such a fantastic job. ❤ I can now announce that the book will be published on February 29, presuming there are no snags or zombie apocalypses to postpone things even further. Look for more info on that later this week.
No TBT post this week seeing as how it’s Friday, but I do want to announce that Family Matters is properly formatted and ready for Smashwords! Right now, I’m just waiting on the cover art. Once I’ve got that, everything will be in order and the book will officially be published. Finally. (And yes, it will still be free.)
I also want to let you all know that the tentative release date for Book 2 is June 19. I purposely chose Father’s Day because it just seems fitting for the story, plus I originally wanted to do it for Family Matters (I suppose I still could if I wanted to wait that long to publish it, but nah). Between then and now, I will be knocking one of the non-vampire short stories I mentioned a while back off my to-do list. Which one? You’ll see. 😀
That’s all for now. I’m off to continue my The Walking Dead marathon in anticipation of the mid-season premiere this Sunday. Because zombies. ❤
Due to the Smashwords release of Family Matters—which is going to happen much sooner than I expected—I will be removing the present version of the story from the Downloads Page next week. I will also be removing all but the first few chapters from BooksieSilk, Tablo, and Wattpad and leaving the rest as a teaser, same as with FictionPress currently. Aside from some minor tweaking and fixing a couple of things that were missed the first time around, everything is still the same. However, I decided not to include the bonus content I previously mentioned, a short story titled A Boy Named Luca, because I’m going to publish that separately. Eventually.
More on that later. Have a nice day!
Family Matters is now a thing you can download! Details are here. (FYI, all free stories will be posted to that page moving forward.)
Multiple people tested each format on multiple devices, so I’m pretty confident that there should be no issues. I personally tested them all on my Kindle app (I had to manually move the MOBI file to my phone’s app folder, but then it opened just fine), my NOOK (it didn’t like PDF too much but that could be because my NOOK is old as hell), and my laptop. If you have any problems, please comment or shoot me a message at emmapetersonwrites at gmail dot com and I’ll get back to you asap!
Lastly, I don’t know exactly when I’ll publish this on Smashwords (with a new permanent cover and additional bonus content because why not?), but once I have an idea, you’ll be the first to know. 😀
