MP-cover-FINAL-webIt’s out!

The Murder Prophet released yesterday, and is available for instant download from Amazon.

It already has a five-star review from one of the winners of the Rafflecopter giveaway I ran a while back, which was pretty exciting to see!

There’s also still a giveaway running over on Goodreads if you’d rather try your luck there before plunking down your $3 for the ebook. ;)

MP-cover-FINAL-webIf you missed out on last week’s ARC giveaway or didn’t win, I have a consolation prize for you today. The first chapter of The Murder Prophet is live at my website so you can get a taste of the book.

As I’ve mentioned before, it’s a quirky story, a mashup of urban fantasy (not the sort with vampires, werewolves, or faerie folk) and mystery, flavoured with romance and humour. If you enjoy things like Janet Evanovich’s Lizzy & Diesel books, or Laura Resnick’s Esther Diamond books, or Kevin J. Anderson’s Dan Shamble, Zombie PI series, I think (without comparing myself to these authors!) there’s a good chance you’ll like The Murder Prophet.

Anyway, Chapter One is here, so check it out!

MP-cover-FINAL-webIt starts today! Between today and next Friday (August 22nd), you can enter to win one of the ARCs of The Murder Prophet I have to give away. There will be multiple winners, and one of them could be you!

I’m using Rafflecopter to run the giveaway, and the widget below details the various ways you can enter (and get multiple entries).

Here’s the book’s description:

Kit Stablefield is a detective with a secret and a crush on a guy she knows only online, in a future where magic is a part of everyday life. But when millionaire Aleshu Coro walks into the offices of Darcko and Sadatake with a message from the Murder Prophet and fourteen days to live, everything changes.

Suddenly Kit is questioning the decisions of her past, trying to find out if the man she loves is, in fact, a man, and hunting for a murderer and a mysterious seer. With her eighty-six-year-old grandmother insisting on helping out, and a sentient goose who simply won’t stop pestering her to watch his “killer” video game moves, Kit has more than her hands full as she races against the clock to prevent Coro’s murder…and possibly her own.

So, y’know, if weird magic and virtual worlds and magically-sentient animals are not your thing, you probably won’t like this book. However, if that all sounds awesome, enter below!*

It’s cover reveal day for my forthcoming urban fantasy/mystery novel, The Murder Prophet! I’m excited to share the cover with you all.

First, though, in case you missed it, the answer to that all-important question, what’s it about?

Kit Stablefield is a detective with a secret and a crush on a guy she knows only online, in a future where magic is a part of everyday life. But when millionaire Aleshu Coro walks into the offices of Darcko and Sadatake with a message from the Murder Prophet and fourteen days to live, everything changes.

Suddenly Kit is questioning the decisions of her past, trying to find out if the man she loves is, in fact, a man, and hunting for a murderer and a mysterious seer. With her eighty-six-year-old grandmother insisting on helping out, and a sentient goose who simply won’t stop pestering her to watch his “killer” video game moves, Kit has more than her hands full as she races against the clock to prevent Coro’s murder…and possibly her own.

The second-most-important question you’ll be asking, of course, is will I like it? That’s more difficult for me to answer, but I’ll try by making some if-you-liked comparisons. (Disclaimer-I’m not saying it’s really like any of these books, and I’m not comparing myself to these authors! But…) If you liked Janet Evanovich’s Lizzy & Diesel books, or Laura Resnick’s Esther Diamond books, or other urban fantasy/mystery/humour/romance mashups, there’s a good chance you’ll like The Murder Prophet.

And as promised — here’s the cover!

Isn’t it purty? :)

Now, in a previous post, I’d promised a contest. I will have a BUNCH of e-ARCs (advance reading copies in ebook formats) of The Murder Prophet to GIVE AWAY to interested readers. My only request will be that if you read and enjoy the book, you try to leave an honest review for it somewhere online. That’s it! Sometime in the next week or so I’ll be posting the actual contest and how to enter to get your own copy before almost anyone else. :) So stay tuned!

I promised some more details about The Murder Prophet, so here’s what the book is about and a few other tidbits:

Kit Stablefield is a detective with a secret and a crush on a guy she knows only online, in a future where magic is a part of everyday life. But when millionaire Aleshu Coro walks into the offices of Darcko and Sadatake with a message from the Murder Prophet and fourteen days to live, everything changes.

Suddenly Kit is questioning the decisions of her past, trying to find out if the man she loves is, in fact, a man, and hunting for a murderer and a mysterious seer. With her eighty-six-year-old grandmother insisting on helping out, and a sentient goose who simply won’t stop pestering her to watch his “killer” video game moves, Kit has more than her hands full as she races against the clock to prevent Coro’s murder…and possibly her own.

The Murder Prophet is a little hard to categorize. I’m calling it urban fantasy because of the existence of magic, but it doesn’t have vampires, werewolves, fairies or any of the other paranormal elements that seem de rigeur in urban fantasy lately. Also, it’s a mystery, and takes place at least in part in the virtual world of the Netz. See my problem?

But urban fantasy/mystery covers it better than anything else, so that’s what we’ll go with, okay?

Watch for the cover and contest on Friday!

I’m *thisquestion mark* close to turning in the manuscript for Dark Beneath the Moon, the sequel to One’s Aspect to the Sun. It’s been a long road with this manuscript, but I’m feeling pretty good about it now.

However, it’s never a good idea for a writer to stand still, and it will be a little while, I’m sure, before I get notes back from my editor for DBTM. So it’ll be heigh-ho, heigh-ho, on to the next project we go, and I’m excited about this one, too.

It’s called The Murder Prophet.

The Murder Prophet is…quirky. If I have to pigeonhole it (and I do, for all the online markets, if nothing else), it’s urban fantasy/mystery, although it’s spiced with elements from several genres. It’s also fun and rather funny; I had a blast writing it and early reports suggest you’ll have a blast reading it.

So stay tuned here on August 1st for the big cover reveal and a contest to win some ebook ARCs! The release date is still in flux, but also on the horizon. And I’ll tell you more about the book then, too!
