I’ll be doing an anthology with Ace Books called INKED, set for a tentative release in January 2010. Other authors will include Yasmine Galenorn, Eileen Wilks, and Karen Chance. My novella will feature Maxine Kiss, from my new Urban Fantasy series (first book, THE IRON HUNT, is coming out this July).
More publishing news soon.
