January 2015 updates

UPDATE- A Very Paranormal Holiday is no longer available, but you can get the Kerbasi story (Facing the Darkness) on all major online retailers.  Amazon link here- http://amzn.to/2fGtpvq

I’ve got a few updates for you all. The first is that you can now pick up the Christmas anthology, A Very Paranormal Holiday, on the major retailers for 99 cents. It includes an all-new story from the Sensor Series with an event that will be referred back to in future books (though it’s not vitally important to the overall storyline).  There are also some other great paranormal stories in the anthology by other authors including Mark Henwick, Connie Suttle, Debra Dunbar, J.T. Bock, and J.C. Mells.  You don’t want to miss it.

You can still get it for free instead if you contact me and are willing to sign up for book release alerts, but the links are below for those who’d prefer to purchase it:

I’m hard at work with Darkness Shatters and I’m shooting for a February 25th release date.  This novel will be a little different in that it switches to Lucas’ POV occasionally (with him in 3rd person).  There are certain parts of the story that just can’t be told from Melena’s perspective and I believe it makes the overall novel stronger with his viewpoint in it.  Expect the cover reveal for Darkness Shatters around February 1st. I’ll also be posting the first few chapters of the novel in a few weeks so you can get a taste of what the book will be like.

For the audiobook listeners, Darkness Divides will be out next week on the 20th and Darkness Clashes will be out on February 17th.  If you’ve been following along, please do leave a rating/review on Audible.  I’d greatly appreciate it!

Also, about the mailing list sign-ups.  I’ve got one list that is strictly for new book release alerts.  If you requested the Christmas anthology that is the one you signed up for.  The only thing you get with that one is an email on the day a new book comes out with links for where to purchase it.  Some of you have already gotten it in recent weeks with Tempting the Moon and know what I’m talking about.

If you’d also like updates on my publishing news, special giveaways, and early excerpts from future novels you will need to sign up for the newsletter.  All you have to do for that is enter your email address and name to the form on the top right corner of this webpage or click here.

That’s it for now, but feel free to ask questions below if you’ve got any.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Audiobook release and paperbacks

For those of you who have been waiting for Darkness Divides and Darkness Clashes to be out in paperback, they are both available now.  Amazon gave me the kick in the pants I needed to get it done by offering to help out.  I think they got tired of waiting for me to do it myself (in my defense, I’ve been busy).  Big thanks to the Createspace team for their design work.  Here’s the links for those who’d like to pick them up:

Darkness Divideshttp://www.amazon.com/Darkness-Divides-Sensor-Volume-3/dp/1502932008/

Darkness Clasheshttp://www.amazon.com/Darkness-Clashes-Sensor-Volume-4/dp/1502932180/

You can also find them on Barnes & Noble as well as some other online retailers.

The big release day for the Darkness Haunts audiobook is this Tuesday (Nov 25th).  Pre-order for the digital download is now available, but if you’d like to hear a sample of it first click here.   Prices for it vary according to how you purchase so for your convenience I’m going to tell you the cheapest ways to get it as of right now.  Keep in mind the cost could go up or down at the retailer’s discretion.

1) For those who shop at Amazon and already own the kindle version of Darkness Haunts, you can get the audio version on Amazon here for $3.49.  I’m not sure of the price outside the U.S. but feel free to comment and let me know what you’re seeing if you’re in the UK, Germany, Australia, etc and own the Kindle version.

2) If you’re a member of Audible and have downloads left you could get it for free or if you’re new to the site you could sign up for trial membership and get it for free.  Here’s the link- http://www.audible.com/pd/Sci-Fi-Fantasy/Darkness-Haunts-Audiobook/B00PKJ2MJ8/

3) For those who do not have Audible membership (or can’t/won’t get it), and also do not own the Kindle version of Darkness Haunts you have a few options.  Buy at full price from Amazon or Audible for $27.99, buy it on iTunes for $23.95, or you can buy it on my publisher website (Tantor) for $14.39 at this link- https://tantor.com/darkness-haunts-susan-illene.html

As I mentioned in a previous post, you can also order the CD versions of the audio book.  Here’s the links to those:

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Tantor*

Books-A-Million

Waterstones (for the UK folks)

*Currently, Tantor offers CDs at the lowest cost.  You can get the regular audio CD that works in all CD players/computers for $14.99 or you can get the MP3 CD for $9.99 that works in computers and some CD players.

I hope those of you who pick it up enjoy the audio version of Darkness Haunts.  You can expect Darkness Taunts to be out on December 16th.  The CD version for it and the other books in the series are already up for pre-order, but the digital download versions don’t become available until closer to their release dates.  Feel free to ask any questions if you have any!
