In just a couple days, on October 1, my 7th novel, Violet Eyes, will finally be in stores and available in ebook - the paperback is actually already up at Amazon! This is my "spider" book, and I'm really excited about the release - it's been a long time coming. I first outlined the novel five years ago!

To celebrate (and pave the way), the e-novelette "prequel," Violet Lagoon is on sale this week for just 99 cents!

When I originally outlined the novel Violet Eyes back in 2008, the prologue I had envisioned was really a standalone "precursor" story to the main events of the novel. Then, when I first pitched the book to Leisure Books, my editor, Don D'Auria loved the concept, but was concerned about releasing the book right after Sarah Pinborough's spider books had come out (too many spiders that year!)... so he said to wait on diving into that novel awhile. While I waited to write the full book, I decided to go ahead and write up the outlined prologue as a story for Creeptych, a short collection I did with Delirium. That novelette is Violet Lagoon, which now is out under its own cover.

In the end, the novelette ended up being too long to serve in its entirety as a prologue, but much of Violet Lagoon does appear in Violet Eyes -- in part as the prologue and in flashbacks throughout the novel, but I thought some people would still want to read Violet Lagoon, the original, uncut novelette, the way it originally was published.

So read Violet Lagoon, the story that spawned Violet Eyes here: http://www.amazon.com/Violet-Lagoon-ebook/dp/B00FCKGBVU

And order Violet Eyes, the full novel, here: http://www.amazon.com/Violet-Eyes-ebook/dp/B00CRZWLG2
