This Post is Exploding With Awesome (Releases and Giveaways!)

14 Nov

Okay, you’ve been warned. Here’s the awesome:

Scripped is going live on Friday, November 18. Of course I am hesitant to say no disaster could keep it from getting there now, but we all know if I say that, something really horrible will happen. Let’s just say: YAY!

Get your copy here!

I’ll post the finished cover and stuff soon, but for now, I have other pretty pictures for you, as I’ve seen two other incredible releases just this weekend and want to share them:

Scenes From the Second Storey: International

This is Amanda Pillar’s gorgeous cover for Scenes From the Second Storey from Morrigan Books. Click the cover to go to the book’s MB page, or just stay here and listen to me squee for a sec.

This book has been a long time in the making — so long that I was asked to pinch-hit in the line-up… I think it was just after Grants Pass, actually. Long before I was on the Morrigan editor roster (obviously), long before I knew Mark and Amanda so well.

This lineup is beyond stellar. My usual ToC buddy Pete Kempshall, my dear friend Mike Stone, Carole Johnstone, Shannon Page — okay, I have to stop, but really, it’s brilliant. You don’t need to know the album after which it was named/around which it’s framed to enjoy it — but it’s a damn good album, too.

My story, “She Said”… I kind of hesitate to say it’s my favorite of mine. I suspect I feel that way just because it’s an AU version of Aldo (site mascot boy up there), who’s been my little museling since I was 13. But yes, it’s a cool book.

IshtarAnd this, of course, is Ishtar – another gorgeous Amanda Pillar cover. We were co-editors on this project for Morrigan’s little sister, Gilgamesh Press. It is a beautiful collection of three novellas by Kaaron Warren, Deborah Biancotti, and Cat Sparks about the goddess Ishtar, past, present, and future.

There are some wonderful background posts from both the authors and Amanda at the Gilgamesh site that are totally worth checking out. That said, no prior knowledge is necessary to “get” these stories. Anyone who enjoys a badass goddess can dig on these.

Ishtar loves, hates, wars, fucks, fights, cries, laughs. (Also, there are zombies. Not your usual zombies, either — this is waaaaay out there.) I am really proud that I got to be a part of this, to work with these awesome women, and to see this thing come to life. I think people are going to dig it.

Wait, I said there was a giveaway, didn’t I?

Okay, so here’s the deal. If you link to this post and give a shout-out to Scripped‘s upcoming release, I’ll enter you into a drawing to win one of these two gorgeous new ebooks from Morrigan — your choice. Tweet, blog, tumblr, facebook, whatever you like to spread the word — just make sure I know about it (email, comment, use @taylorkv, whatever works!) and your name goes in the hat. I’ll draw two out on Sunday night at midnight!

(PS – I’ve got one of the Liberty Tree books claimed already, but that means there are still four. If you buy, be sure and email to let me know!)
