Book Birthday and a Sale!

Posted on:

BFQ Cover Mock 50 percentToday The Bone Flower Queen is now available in e-book format at all your favorite online retailers!

Suddenly the ground rumbled and I looked around, my calm forgotten. Was it an earthquake? Behind me, the maguey plant’s thick, fleshy leaves waved as if caught in a great wind, yet none of the plants around it moved, and no wind was blowing. The rumbling focused between me and the maguey plant, as if something large and sinister burrowed towards me….

Having defeated the sorcerer god Smoking Mirror and reclaimed her throne, Quetzalpetlatl and her brother Topiltzin set out to found Quetzalcoatl’s new holy city and end human sacrifice throughout the Toltec world.

But Smoking Mirror hasn’t abandoned his own ambitions for power; with his allies–both mortal and divine–threatening war among the gods, he’s shifted his focus to Quetzalpetlatl and her budding magical powers. Along with her deep, personal connection to his hated enemy Quetzalcoatl, she would be the perfect addition to his ranks, if only he could convince her that she’s working for the wrong side in this conflict.

And he knows the one secret that will tear apart everything she thinks she knows about her beloved god…and herself.

What are readers saying about it?

This is a lovely continuation of the first volume–I really like the focus on Toltec society and the wealth of details, as well as the focus on women’s experiences (there’s a lovely and heartbreaking depiction of motherhood). The final revelation (and I’m not going to spoil) is a game-changer.”

“Every bit as good, if not better, than the first.”

“T.L. Morganfield’s characters were well fleshed out in the first book and become even more so in this one. The tension between the hero & heroine is amazing and you cheer for them through the entire book despite their odd circumstances. Morganfield’s mastery at setting draws you into the story so much so that you forget you’re sitting in the present reading. You feel like you are walking through the Aztec culture.”

BFT_ebookcov“There is real love for the craft here. Real care and respect for the culture being represented…I simply cannot wait for the next (and final, ugh!) book in The Bone Flower trilogy!”

Bone Flower Update

Posted on:

BFT_ebookcovI’ve finished republishing Bone Flower Throne to all digital markets. The paperback is available as well, but currently only at Amazon. Hopefully it will trickle out to BN in the next week or two. Many of the Panverse digital editions are still available for sale, and you should feel free to buy either one (I make a royalty regardless), but folks should know that the new edition includes some color interior art that are quite beautiful on the tablets. However, the larger file size does make it run slower on older devices, like the 2nd gen Kindles. I am looking into ways to decrease the file’s size and will update it if and when I do, but for now, those with older devices might want to grab up the Panverse edition while it’s still available (it’s not available on Kindle anymore). Visit the novel’s page for quick links to everywhere you can buy.

BFQ Cover Mock 50 percentAs for Bone Flower Queen, I intend to do the final read-through and copyedit on that next week and have the paper version available on Amazon by mid-month. Digital versions will be available on or after January 5th (BN is closed from Jan 1-4, so there might be a backlog on the 5th, though I intend to have the final version submitted before Christmas). In the meantime, you can pre-order the ebook versions at Amazon, Kobo, Apple, and BN, and they will be automatically delivered to your device on release day. Thank you everyone who has already pre-ordered! Also, if you purchase a paperback edition through Amazon, you get a free digital copy when they become available!

In the meantime, it’s high time I get back to work on the final book in the trilogy. I have a little over 15k already written, and my hope is to have that one out much sooner than a year from now.

Bone Flower Queen Available for Pre-Order

Posted on:

BFQ Cover Mock 50 percentI’ve put the Kindle edition of The Bone Flower Queen up for pre-order on Amazon (and am looking into doing the same on Kobo as well). So you can order your copy now and it will be delivered directly to your Kindle on January 5th, the e-book’s official release date. I’ve also activated Kindle Match Book on it, so if you purchase the paperback version via Amazon, you can download the e-book for free. I am planning to have the paperback version on sale by mid to late December, for those who like dead-tree editions.

I’ve also moved forward with widening the distribution for my short story collection Night Bird Soaring and Other Stories. As of this posting, it’s available at Amazon, B&N, and Apple IBooks, but should also be up on Kobo within a day from now. Go here for direct links to purchase. Only $2.99 for over 300 pages of short fiction!Vertical background with Maya calendar and Earth

Bone Flower Queen also has listings on Goodreads, Booklikes, and LibraryThing. And starting tomorrow (the 13th), I’m running an e-ARC giveaway on Booklikes. I do have plans to also run a paperback giveaway on Goodreads once my ARCs arrive from CreateSpace.

And in case you don’t already know, Panverse will be offering The Bone Flower Throne for free for 48 hours coming up really soon, so stay tuned! (In fact, they are running free promos throughout November, so make sure you drop by every 48 hours to download your free e-book!)

Ebooks Available and Eating Authors

Posted on:

So, over the weekend, the ebook versions of The Bone Flower Throne became available on both Amazon and Smashwords. You can purchase them for the low price of $5.99!

And today, over at Lawrence Schoen’s blog, I talk a bit about a memorable meal me and my family shared in San Antonio this last summer, as part of his feature called Eating Authors. Be sure to go check it out, so you can find out why the River Walk posts signs all over the place warning you not to feed the pigeons.

A New Look Calls for a Contest! Win a Free Digital ARC

Win a free digital ARC!

Win a free digital ARC!

The website had undergone a top to bottom renovation and I’m really very thrilled with the fantastic work Jeremiah Tolbert of Clockpunk Studios did with it. A new book deserves a new site filled with all sorts of goodies, right? I hope you find the site more reader-friendly now, with separate book pages for all my novels/collections/anthologies, with easy to click buy links, and I’m in the process of building up some extras on each book page, to make them more interesting to visit. And I’m over the moon with how Jeremiah integrated Kurt and Zelda’s fabulous web art into the new design; I love the watermark affect of the sketch on the bottom of each page and the peppering of the colored banners throughout the pages. Have a click around to see the full extent of the customizations he did. I highly recommend Clockpunk Studios to anyone looking to have some website work done.

Let’s celebrate! Win a free digital ARC!

Such big changes call for a contest. I’m giving away Fifteen digital ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) of The Bone Flower Throne. It’s available in both Mobi (Kindle) and epub (Nook) formats, and while I’d love the winners to review the book at Goodreads/Amazon/B&N/blog when they’re done, it’s not a requirement. To enter, simply leave a comment below (only on the WordPress blog; not LiveJournal); be sure to use an active email address* when filling out the comment form, for winners’ files will be sent to those addresses. I’d really love to give away the full fifteen, so please let your friends know about the contest (and if the turnout is more than anticipated, I might up the number of ARC prizes…). I’ll hold the drawing Tuesday September 3rd and email out files to the winners the following day.

*I promise not to use your email address for anything outside the purposes of this contest and will only be used/looked at in the event you win a prize. I will not be collecting email addresses to spam you with unwanted mail, nor will I sell your email address to third parties. I figure if you want me emailing you with publishing news, you will sign up for the mailing list.
