Freezing and Typing

Yes, I Know… It’s 101 Degrees Outside at Midnight Right Now…

But at the moment I am thinking of trying to dig out my ski parka and if I could type in gloves I would. You see, someone in this building needs to have their air-conditioner fixed, and it seems for some strange reason they have to turn off the entire building from 1 am to 8 am. So Kris came up with the idea (or maybe I did, too cold to remember) to turn down ours very low until it gets shut off at 1 am.

I must say our air-conditioner works very, very well. The low tonight will be 86, but by 8 am it will be back to 100. So hopefully, this place is as tight as we think it is. Going to be interesting, that’s for sure. First time in 5 years here this has happened. And 68 degree blowing cold air is much colder than I remember it. (grin)

Right now, and for the next few hours unless my fingers turn blue, I will be working on the new Fey Kickstarter campaign. It will launch at noon on Tuesday and here is the link to the preview page to make sure you are notified when it launches. It is amazing.

This is the first brand new Fey novel in over 22 years. It is amazingly good and you can get it ahead of the February publication through the campaign.

Here is the cover. Cover artist is Raven, cover design is by Allyson Longueira, and cover illustration by Echo Chenik. Stunning, isn’t it. They are redoing all of the first seven Fey novels. And putting them in a stunning hardback set, also with a limited edition set.

And for those of you learning how to write sales copy, here is the sales copy for the new novel.


The Kirilli Matter

The First Book of the Qavnerian Protectorate

Gripping, imaginative, and a tour-de-force of thrilling storytelling, New York Times bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s The Kirilli Matter launches her acclaimed Fey series into exciting new territory.

When the investigation of a brutal murder scene points to terrifying suspects, Augusta Kirilli must find a way to protect her family’s secrets—secrets so long buried, she must discover their meaning or risk her own destruction. Set in the world of The Fey and masterfully blending fantasy and steampunk elements, Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s Qavnerian Protectorate saga adds rich new dimension to this powerfully written series.

From its shocking opening to the deepening mystery at its conclusion, this groundbreaking novel takes epic fantasy in a whole new direction and proves Rusch’s place as the greatest storyteller of our time.
