Happy Book Birthday! Bone Flower Queen Release Day

Posted on:

BFQ Cover Mock 50 percentSo today is the official release day for the paperback version of The Bone Flower Queen. Right now it’s only available at Amazon, but it is available for pre-order in e-book format at many online vendors (visit the book’s page here to find links to your favorite ebook retailer). The ebook version’s street date is January 5th, so a little under a month from now.

In the meantime, you can read the first chapter here.

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.

By turns exhilarating, heartbreaking and always richly detailed both in character and world building, this tapestry of love, loss and war is a worthy sequel to The Bone Flower Throne. — Aliette de Bodard, Nebula Award winning author of the Obsidian and Blood trilogy

Morganfield once again takes us on a fascinating journey through Mesoamerican mythology, following Quetzlpetalatl as she discovers that her world is not what she thought it was…and neither is she. — J. Kathleen Cheney, author of The Golden City series

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.

Two-day Freebie!

BFT_ebookcovSo my publisher is running a two-day freebie on ebook editions of The Bone Flower Throne. You get both the mobi and the epub all for the low, low price of $0.00. Click the book cover to claim your copy. Ends at midnight Pacific time on 11/15.

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!)

Bone Flower Queen Cover Reveal

I’m pleased to finally reveal the cover for the second novel of the Bone Flower Trilogy.

Very beautiful work by World Fantasy Award nominated artist Zelda Devon (who also did the first book’s cover). I love how this cover continues the stone imagery theme from the first book’s cover. I couldn’t be more pleased.

More news coming very soon!
