Hello? Is this thing on? (Updates and Announcements)

Righty-O. So, it's been...ahem...a while since I last posted anything here. I'm sure you were wondering what had happened to me. As it turns out, I've just returned from an extended trip to Under, and I have so many exciting things to tell you about.

Those of you with a particularly keen sense of your surroundings will have noticed a little twitter post rushing by six weeks ago. It looked something like this:
Yep, that's a toy lobster in the corner. His name is Chive. And if you direct your attention to the center of the image, you'll see a completed draft of WATER WORKS (Book Two in the Emma & the Elementals series, and sequel to ROOT BOUND). It's the the reason I've been too preoccupied to post much lately. No, I'm talking about he draft. Please stop looking at the lobster.

You might have also noticed that ROOT BOUND is no longer available in digital format, except from Amazon. You might have seen this and guessed that a string of free dates could be heading your way, If you did, then give yourself a nice pat on the back, because you're right. I'm giving ROOT BOUND away FREE on Amazon from Monday, September 21 through Friday, September 25, 2015.

I've never done the whole Amazon Select/Free deal before, so please watch this space for ways you can help me ensure the book gets into as many deserving hands as possible.

You can also keep an eye out for additional promotions and a Goodreads giveaway coming up in the next few weeks.

Why am I doing all this? Oh, I don't know. Perhaps I'm overcome with uncontrollable affection for my fellow human beings and want to shower you all with gifts. Or maybe it has something to do with WATER WORKS being released on November 1.

What's that, you say? WATER WORKS is being released on November 1, 2015? Maybe. Ok, probably. Fine! Yes, it is. Would you please quit nagging now? Thank you. And on that note, if you reviewed ROOT BOUND for your book blog and would like to do the same for WATER WORKS, give me a shout.

Just to recap, here are the key dates to watch out for:

Sept 3: WATER WORKS Pre-sale begins (link to follow)
Sept 4-Nov 1: Goodreads Giveaway (win a ROOT BOUND and WATER WORKS signed two-pack)
Sept 21-25: ROOT BOUND free on Amazon
Nov 1: WATER WORKS released into the wild

There will be more dates and information to follow. My deepest thanks to my family and friends for supporting my madness all these years. I couldn't be this crazy without you.
