The Relics of Thiala will be released in a little less than a month. The pre-order is up and running (see here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MU23QNL), and the next step is mailing all the reviewers and long-time readers who asked for advance copies.

Of course, one nagging fear when sending those mails is the question if I remembered everyone who asked. And the answer is, as usual: probably not. So if you are a reader or reviewer and interested in an advance reader copy - please let me know.

I may be scatterbrained, but I surely don't want to keep our books from you. And we are so looking forward to publishing this one!

Time flies when you are mostly spending it in a couple of other universes.

We have been busy bees, working on getting the first book in the Packmasters series ready for publication.

That of course includes getting a cover. Darbaras, the artist we've commissioned for all three books, has done an awesome job at capturing the characters for the covers. Each cover of the three books will have one of the main characters at the center. The first one has Wolf, and here it is:

I think it looks pretty damn awesome.

Release is planed for February 2017, but it's already available for pre-order here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MU23QNL

Our little book 'Loving Djinni' has done it and nabbed a spot among the winners of this year's Rainbow Book Awards for Best Romantic Comedy (Gay). It didn't quite make first place, but under the kind rules of the Rainbow Awards, it's among the first three, so it's a winner!

We are so happy about the results, and want to send a giant 'Thank you!' to all judges and and of course to Elisa Rolle. Without her, none of this would have been possible, and once again the Rainbow Awards have proven that being nice and civil and inclusive is possible even in this business.

And now I'm off to celebrate this lovely if a little premature Christmas gift, crowning our first year self-publishing our novels. :)

Thanks so much to everyone involved.

Now can you believe it? Our 'Loving Djinni' has just received an Honorable Mention at this year's Rainbow Awards!

And they had such nice things to say: "Simply best read of the season. Sparkly and witty, this book brought multiple smiles and unforgettable characters."

So - what I want to say is a great 'Thank you!" to all involved. We're so very happy you liked our book. :)

It is my birthday, and in good old Hobbit fashion, I come bearing gifts.

This year, I have decided to give away our latest novel for a pittance - 'Softpaw' is discounted to 99 cents worldwide for the entire week!

So everyone, enjoy the read and have a beautiful day. I'll now go and unwrap a few presents entirely my own. :)

Hello everyone!

Remember how back at the start of the year I was complaining how it was so hard to write about hot summer days when it was snowing outside? Well, after much work on the project, it is now nearing completion.

The book will be called Sunchaser. It's the second entry into our Smilodon Pride series.

While the first book, Softpaw, was about the youngest sibling or our werepanther pride, this one will be about the eldest - Roan.

He's a drifter and a bit of a bad boy, never staying in one place for long.

This one will an adventure story, not a romance.

To give you an idea what the story is about, here's what the back of the cover will say:

Roan has pretended to be a human for long enough. He needs to get out of town and roam the land, as any proper werecat should.
The last thing he wants is his conscience insisting he should save an abused werewolf from a traveling circus first. The very last thing he expects is the local sheriff’s daughter having the exact same idea - and beating him to the punch.
Their rescue goes spectacularly wrong, and suddenly Roan, Betsy and their crippled wolf find themselves fleeing across the US for the Mexican border, chased by the police and vengeful circus fey alike...

And for those of you who we met at Euro Pride Con and pestered with questions about that huge print out - here's the finished cover in glorious color!

The book will be out in October. I'll post pre-order links once I have some.

If you have any questions, as always, feel free to drop them here, on GoodReads, Twitter or wherever else you run into us.

Our upoming novel 'Softpaw' will be released on July 14th, Bastille Day 2016. You can already pre-order the book on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and AllRomanceEbooks! More pre-order links will be added here as they crop up.

Softpaw is a standalone paranormal m/m romance about cops and prostitutes, werecats and vampires and the first book of the ‘Smilodon Pride’ collection.

Connor’s life used to be the dream of any cultured werecat. He spent his days in Paris’ gay quarter with comfortably little real work, playing the piano, surrounded by art, fine food and good friends. Now, a feral vampire preys on the prostitutes of ‘his’ quarter, killing the boys of the Marais one by one.

When Connor invites a newly arrived hooker to stay on his houseboat, the last thing he expects is Michel to be a member of the
Brigade Criminelle - a troubled, hunky rookie cop sent undercover to explore Connor’s connection to the murders, picked mostly because he had been a boy of the Marais himself, not so long ago.

Hiding their true natures becomes a problem for both when their initial attraction becomes much more than they ever thought possible. But in order to bring down the serial killer and maybe have a chance at making their relationship work out, one of them will have to take the first, critical leap...

Since three days now, Loving Djinni is #1 bestseller overall on AllRomanceEbooks.

Not just in one category. Overall. First book right underneath the 'Bestsellers' tab.

This is so stunning. Thanks so much to everyone who bought a copy, you really made our day. And because we want to give back a little of what we have received, we have decided to keep the book on a global discount of 99 cent (USD/EUR) for another week. :)

Thanks to ariss_tenoh, we decided to offer 'Loving Djinni' through AllRomanceEbooks, too. And what a smart decision this turned out to be!
After a bit more than a day on ARE, 'Loving Djinni' hit #1 bestselling novel in both the 'Romantic Comedy' and the 'Romance - Fantasy' categories! Can you believe it?! So happy here, and grateful for every single copy sold.

Of course, this sudden spike in sales might have to do with the fact that we are currently offering 'Loving Djinni' at a unique discount for only 99 (USD / EUR) cents worldwide. With the buzz about EuroPrideCon rising around us every day, we thought it would be nice to add a bit of buzz of our own. So we decided to give a little gift to our readers and offer our latest release at a discount until the end of EuroPrideCon. If you were looking to buy a romantic comedy about a nerdy arts dealer and his puckish demon (and haven't yet), now's your chance! The discount will be in effect until Monday, June 13th.

Thanks a ton to all of you,

It is incredible that an entire year has passed already since we came back from the very first EuroPrideCon in Munich, energized and packed with ideas. I'm not saying that the time has gone by quickly - it was so stuffed in every regard that it feels like a few weeks and a whole lifetime simultaneously.

We have published 'Lucia' and 'Djinni', and 'Softpaw' is right around the corner. Actually, I have packed away the very first copies of Softpaw just a few moments ago. We will be leaving for Berlin on Friday already, so we're all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when the actual con starts on Saturday. Well, probably not really, cause anything before 11am is way too early in my book.

But we are so very much looking forward to the EPC. Of course there's never a second first time, but maybe this will prove almost as inspiring and affirming than the one last year. Meeting new people just as slightly-off-the-rockers as we are, talking, arguing, chatting together, maybe making plans, comparing, learning.

Seeing you all in Berlin,
