Happy book birthday, The Absinthe Earl!

I am SO excited to release The Absinthe Earl into the world today! In a way, I've been working on this book for most of my life. Growing up, any time I found myself in a magical place—near a burbling stream, a wood lit by fireflies, or a building half-reclaimed by the elements—I looked for that gateway to another world that I sensed but could never quite see. In The Faery Rehistory trilogy, I finally found my gateway.

You've been hearing a lot about this book in the course of the last year, and it's all been building up to this day! As newsletter subscribers, you'e going to get to see some fun behind-the-scenes stuff that I hope you will enjoy. 

If you have a digital or print copy of the book, I'd love to see a photo on social media. Let's plaster that awesome cover all over the Internet! Be sure to tag me so I see your post. I'll share the most creative post in my next newsletter, and also answer any question the poster cares to ask!

This is a very special photo I wanted to share with you guys. I took it about eleven years ago, on a solo trip to Ireland. I was vacationing but also researching a book that died a natural death of not having any idea what it wanted to be when it grew up. But that trip provided much fodder for novels to come. This is Keem Strand on Achill Island, where the hero and heroine of The Absinthe Earl end up stranded for a night. This cottage is where both literal and figurative sparks begin to fly! 

I also wanted to share these beautiful posters made by my girls, Selah (left) and Talia (right). They are not old enough to read this book, but they have been excited about it for the past year. Probably due to the fairy element, and as you can see, the fact there are HORSES IN IT. They are super artistic kiddos. In fact, the photo of me at the top was taken by Selah, and I have posted some of their photos on Instagram. 

The graphic above is a direct link to the Pinterest board for The Absinthe Earl. Click to see some of the images that gave me inspiration while I was writing the book. For example, did you know that Irish actor Aidan Turner (Poldark) was the inspiration for Earl Edward Donoghue? There are also images of the places in Ireland where the story is set, photos of other characters, and some gorgeous absinthe posters. If you have a Pinterest account and share book stuff, sharing the cover is a great way to get the word out about the book! 

Tonight I'll be celebrating the release with a book signing at Ada's Technical Books and Cafe in Seattle. If you are in the area, I hope you'll drop by! Back when my scifi romance Echo 8 came out, I had a release party at Ada's. It's a particularly fitting venue for this book, not just because they feature a lot of local fantasy and scifi authors, but because the store is named for the same woman that the heroine of The Absinthe Earl is named for: Countess Ada Lovelace, who was the daughter of Lord Byron and is considered to have written the first computer program. Huzzah! 

I've got one last little gem for you. Last week I noticed there's an audio sample up for the book on Downpour. You only get to hear the female narrator, but still it's fun! 

Thank you so much for your interest in my books. It means the world to me to be able to connect with you through my newsletters like this! Here in a week or two I promise to get out an October issue of The Cozy Read. Book release or no, I just didn't feel like I could skip one of the coziest months of the year! Hopefully I'll also be able to share some info about how the release went. 

And I almost forgot! I've made a short story available to people who sign up for my newsletter, and I wanted to make sure you get to read it too! Click to download a copy of A Heart for Copper, a sweet clockwork romance.

I'll leave you with a photo from my first signing event, at the Pacific Northwest Booksellers conference in Portland last week. The indie booksellers were wonderfully receptive and excited about the book!
