chapter 1 is up!
Didn't I promise? Don't I deliver? Go here to read the first chapter of Whisper to the Blood, the sixteenth Kate Shugak novel, coming from St. Martin's Minotaur on February 17, 2009.
The next three chapters will be posted on November 17th, December 17th and January 17th.
No cover art yet, they're still agonizing over it in New York. Watch the website, I'll post it there as soon as I get it. Meanwhile, here's a picture of my desk as I was finishing the book. Go here to read about it.
want to read whisper to the blood before anyone else?
An ARC is what we call in the publishing biz an advanced reading copy. They go out to booksellers and reviewers six months before the book is published. I have managed by various devious means to acquire four ARCs, and once a month for the next four months leading up to Whisper to the Blood pub day, I will be giving away one ARC to a deserving fan.
All you have to do to win is subscribe to the Roadhouse Report. But you’re reading this, so you already are!
There will be second and third prizes from my Zazzle store. I'll email the winners for their snailmail addresses, and with their permission I will post their names (and if they wish and have .jpgs, their photos) on the website.
