Shadow Bound is out today! Mostly. I’m hearing reports that the US paperback version is available most places, and that some of the ebook versions have been released. Other ebook versions and some non-US English versions may not release until June 1.
I currently have no information about foreign language editions or audio editons, but I suspect the audio will be available soon. All my other books are in audio.
You can find the official back cover blurb here, and that page also contains a link to the first two chapters in PDF format, which you’re welcome to read for free, whenever you want, however many times you want.
Today, I’m celebrating the Shadow Bound release by writing another 5,000 words in WITH ALL MY SOUL. And maybe with an extra cup of coffee.
Six days into writing (I took the weekend off), the book stands thus:
I’m very pleased with the progress, and I’ll be even more pleased if I actually make my goal today. This is a very busy day for me, with the new release and a personal obligation. I was up working until midnight last night, and I’d like to pack it in earlier today. So…we’ll see.
And, today I actually have a line from what I wrote yesterday, with a name deleted to avoid spoilers. Be warned, though, that this is rough draft. This snippet could change drastically or be deleted entirely before the book ever sees print. Here goes, from chapter eight of WITH ALL MY SOUL:
“Even scarier was the fact that I had yet to find a limit to what I’d be willing to do to protect him. To keep him with me. To keep us together. I’d spent most of my life setting boundaries. Lines I wouldn’t cross. Lines I wouldn’t let others cross.
With [redacted], there were no boundaries.”
