Err, it seems like there’s an awful lot of news I’ve been slacking on. First, the second book in my Escaping Indigo series, Skin Hunger, went up for preorder a couple weeks ago, and I’m terrible at promo, so I sort of sporadically announced it here and there. But, it’s up! And the cover’s up, too. 😀 It’s f/f (it follows Ava, from the first book) and it’ll be out on November 13.
The book takes place away from the rest of the band, so although it’d probably be helpful to read Escaping Indigo first, I think Skin Hunger stands on its own pretty well, too.
Here’s the blurb:
Ava should be living her dream as the drummer for Escaping Indigo. The problem is, she’s secretly in love with her bandmate, Tuck. But he’s fallen for someone else. Being a drummer is still the best, but for Ava, every day is also a reminder of what she can’t have.
With her grandmother moving into assisted living, Ava figures it’s a good time to head home and help out. And if it lets her get some distance from Tuck and his girlfriend, all the better. But Ava hasn’t visited her family in years, and home isn’t really home anymore. Instead, it’s the place she’s been running from, full of memories of everything her parents wanted for her—and everything she didn’t want for herself.
But on the airplane, Ava meets Cara, and the two women feel an immediate connection. And when they bump into each other a second time, it seems like fate. Cara offers Ava something she’s never had—someone to love who loves her back. But to be with Cara, Ava may have to change her whole life around, and that’s something she’s not sure she’s ready for.
If that sounds interesting, you can check out some more info, and/or preorder it at the Riptide website.
I also have some super awesome Escaping Indigo merch available at Redbubble! Lennan Adams (Lexiconic Design) made up some AMAZING logos—they’re gorgeous and she’s a genius. 😀 And I did up a few tour posters, etc. So there are now shirts, mugs, posters, stickers, and pretty much anything else you can imagine available for purchase.
Some stuff, like certain shirts and the notebooks and stuff, I have to change the background on manually, so if there’s something you’d like in a different color, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
Last of the news—I wrote a short epilogue for Escaping Indigo, for newsletter subscribers. It’ll be going out in the newsletter next month, after the book releases. If you want to read it, you can sign up for the newsletter here.
