We’re just two days away from the December 1 launch of Skyblade’s Gambit, my new novella. There’ll be a preview tomorrow, but today, I wanted to share more information about the project that this novella is part of…after the cut. Continue reading

Sunday! Catchup! We’ll start with this reminder: The Anniversary Sale continues! Through Monday, you can get Michiko and Beth’s first three adventures for just 99 cents US each! They’re also 99 cents CA/AU/NZ, 0.99 £, and 0,99 €! Grab them now, and happy reading! More after the cut.
It’s Sunday catchup time! I know things have been a little light on the blog in the last couple of weeks, but I do have a few posts planned for the near future in addition to the regular features. As for what’s planned for today…just look after the cut to find out! Continue reading
Two things to get your Tuesday rolling. First, I forgot to mention that The Doubleclicks, our favorite sister geek-folk-rock-with-cat-keyboard duo, are holding a live streaming concert this coming Sunday, Valentine’s Day! Well, technically it’ll be at midnight GMT and 1:00 AM CET, but it’s on Valentine’s Day in the Western Hemisphere – 3:00 PM Pacific, 6:00 PM Eastern. There’ll be songs about love, dinosaurs, geeky fun things, and more! It’ll be on YouTube; click here to watch, or here to learn more about the band. See you there!
And a Happy Birthday to awesome pal Shei Darksbane! You know her as part of Darksbane Books and the main author of the Dakota Shepherd series, but she has also been a good friend in good times and bad, and one of my favorite people. Shei, I hope your birthday kicks butt! (In a good way!)
First, I realized that I forgot to include a link to KBoards in my last post, so consider that rectified. I usually hang out in the Writer’s Cafe forum, using the cunningly conceived forum name “Robert Dahlen”, but there are also forums there for discussing Kindles, other e-readers, books and other subjects. Come on by and say hi! More after the cut. Continue reading
Putting this up early with a last reminder: Later today is my Q&A chat at the eFestival of Words (8:30 AM Pacific / 11:30 AM Eastern / 5:30 PM CET), and then Michiko will be part of the Heroes Vs. Villains panel (11:00 AM Pacific / 2:00 PM Eastern / 8:00 PM CET)! And as a thank-you, we’ve marked down Of Introductions And Abductions, the first Monkey Queen book, to 99 cents through Monday! More after the cut.
Speaking of 99 cents, that will also get you Awakened, the first book in the Dakota Shepherd series from Shei Darksbane with Darksbane Books! And the second, Hunted, has just come out! Good urban fantasy adventure, with a snarky but lovable main character, and a new favorite here at Monkey Queen Books!
D23 is this weekend, and there may be a new Disney Infinity post this coming week, as they’re due to announce three more figures on Sunday. This year’s expo has been all about the Star Wars, at least to most people, but I was most intrigued by the announced sequel to The Incredibles. It’s been reported for a while, but it’s good to have confirmation from Pixar, and with Brad Bird returning, we can hope that it’s as good as the first was. But I suppose I should be concerned about the fact that Pixar announced or confirmed five films, and only one of them isn’t a sequel…
And finally, in case you somehow missed this earlier this week: Whoa.
Last month, we told you about the debut novel by Shei Darksbane with Darksbane Books, Awakened. Well, she’s just released the second book in the series…Hunted. Dakota Shepherd’s adventures continue in this gripping urban fantasy, when a mysterious threat stalks her and those closest to her. Grab Hunted here! And if you haven’t read Awakened, it’s just 99 cents US for a very limited time! Go! Read!
Sunday catchup time! First, we’ve been forgetting to mention this, but this coming weekend, August 14-16, is the annual eFestival of Worlds, an online book fair and convention! We’re still waiting on word about a planned Q&A session, but on Sunday at 11:00 AM Pacific / 2:00 PM Eastern / 8:00 PM CET, you can attend the “Heroes vs. Villains” panel. Three heroes and three villains, answering questions “Family Feud” style, and Michiko will be there, dazzling the other heroes with her brilliance and baffling the villains with her cuteness and snark! Get more info here. More after the cut! Continue reading
Don’t forget – US readers can still get the third Monkey Queen book, Under The Stars Of Faerie, for 99 cents at Amazon.com! This is a Kindle Countdown deal, and it ends at 11:59 PM PST on Wednesday, July 29! We’ll have more details this coming week on a special sale for all non-US Amazon stores! More after the cut.
