SAWBONES to be released in trade paperback in 2017!


Since SAWBONES was released in March, I've been asked by many people when they can buy a physical book. I've always had to answer this question with a ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, a mostly ineffective explanation of ebook only contracts, and "As soon as I know, you will, too!"

Well, today is that day!





SAWBONES, BLOOD OATH and BADLANDS* will be released in trade paperback in April, May and June 2017, respectively.  

I have everyone who bought SAWBONES, as well as everyone who took time to write a review, to thank for this wonderful news! (As well as my awesome editor, Lindsey, and everyone at Redhook who have been so excited and enthusiastic about my gritty feminist Western.) Your support made this happen.

In the good news/bad news department, you'll have to wait a little longer to find out what happens to Laura and Kindle. The BLOOD OATH and BADLANDS ebooks will be released with the print versions in May and June 2017. But, SAWBONES will continue to be available as an ebook, in case you haven't downloaded it yet. There's a handy link below to help you remedy that situation.

But, really, the best part of all of this means there will be a huge, blowout launch party to celebrate the series in April. 

The first rule of publishing: CELEBRATE EVERYTHING!

I'll have more news as we get closer to the release date - new cover reveals, book signings information, launch party details, giveaways - April 2017 seems like a long time away, but time is a flat circle, after all.** It'll be here before you know it!

*BTW, this is also the title reveal for the third and final book in the series, BADLANDS. Yea BADLANDS!

**Yeah, I don't know what that means either. But, it sounds better than, "the older we get the faster time passes."
