Let It Bleed coming May 27!

EDITED TO ADD: Please read this update for the latest on "Let It Bleed." Thanks!

At long last, Book 3.5 of the WVMP Series, the novella "Let it Bleed," will be posted here at!

When: Sunday, May 27 (Ciara's birthday)
How: At the very least, in PDF format, but I'm hoping to make it available in all major ebook formats as well.
Why: Um...because I love you?
How much: FREE for the first year. This means it'll be free for six months after the publication of the final novel Lust for Life, coming December 2012. In June 2013, I'll publish "Let It Bleed" as an ebook with some extra features and a brand-new piece of WVMP short fiction! Something to look forward to, yeah?

Unlike most novellas, "Let It Bleed" isn't a side jaunt. It's an integral part of the WVMP series story arc. If you don't read it, you'll pick up Lust for Life and go, "Wait...what?", and your head will start tilting sideways like a dog when it hears a funny noise. That's why I'm putting it out for free.

For more about this vampire series, including playlists and free (for now) short stories, check out the WVMP section of my website.

Thanks for your patience! Eventually I'll put up a post explaining the delay, since I think by this time you deserve it (and I feel the need to explain so you don't think I've just been dorking around not caring about this, my favorite series I've ever written), but consider this a "Just the Facts" post. Which is why it's short and (I hope) sweet.

Happy reading!

Yay!!! SO excited to read it. And LFL too, obviously. Though you're killing me ending two of my favorite series in one year. ;)
