The Night Runner series has been very special to me. When I wrote Don’t Bite the Messenger, it was deep winter in Alaska. For those of you who haven’t experienced it – the gradual darkening and growing cold – it’s pretty rough. Months of expanding darkness and deep cold take a toll on a person. Messenger was my escape – a book full of fast cars, vampires (both nasty and sexy), explosions, and Sydney Kildare, a heroine who would do whatever it took to get the hell out of dodge.
Running in the Dark was even more fun. For me. Maybe not for Syd, who I stuck low on a totem pole in a foreign place before surrounding her with uncertainty and homicidal enemies. Definitely not for Malcolm Kelly, who I saddled with responsibility and restrictions (two things the poor vampire loathes) so that he couldn’t carry Syd off into the sunset (you know what I mean) like he wanted to. But they fought, sometimes with each other but more often for each other, and they earned their place together.
And now I’m happy to announce the third book in the Night Runner series, Falling from the Light. This was a difficult book. Every time I struggled with a scene, it got worse for Syd and Mal. I struggled, a lot. And I finally got what I wanted. Nastier bad guys. Higher stakes. Rocks, hard places, and a whole lot of tough decisions. In this world, if you want a happy ending, you have to work for it.

I am all kinds of happy to announce the third Night Runner book – Falling from the Light. I know it’s been awhile. I had to pause and write another novel at one point to up my skills so that I could twist this one just the way I wanted. That’s right. I had to LEVEL UP before I could finish this story.
That’s me with my sensei. Mostly we just hung out in silhouette, making elaborate shadow puppets. It was still hard, though, judgmental readers! But I did it. I toughed it out (and can now make an 8-point stag with flexible ears). All for you!
I also made a playlist. At the time, I believed I was procrastinating. Mostly because I don’t listen to music while writing. But now that playlist hits me right in the solar plexus of my feels, because this book, you guys. THIS BOOK.
It’s a bumpy ride, and it’s coming out November 24th. Blrub and pre-order links HERE. Add it to your Goodreads page HERE.

Wow! So Harlequin (including my Night Runner publisher, Carina press) has added 15,000 backlist titles to a subscription service at Scribd. It’s $8.99 a month to subscribe to a giganta-library of romance and adventure.
As a reader, I consider this a massive value. Seriously, once I stop bouncing and almost-dancing, I’m going to start searching for my favorite Harlequin-family authors.
You can find Don’t Bite the Messenger, my Alaska-based urban fantasy novella, and Running in the Dark, my Chile-based romantic urban fantasy novel, at Scribd.
If you’re leery of this strange new technology called sub-skrip-sheon, you can get a free three-month trial here. How many stories can you read for free in three months? A ka-zillion, that’s right.
What will authors earn from this subscription service? How kind of you to ask. If you read up to the 20% mark or beyond of a story, the author will be paid as if you had purchased the story individually. A good deal for all involved.
Aaaaand…new release news is about to drop for the Night Runner series, so I encourage you to refresh your memory and push it toward friends so you can scuttle about it together soon!

If this were the ’80s, that headline would be the title of my next book in the series. Unfortunately (for my closet full of scrunchies and acid-washed jeans) it is not the ’80s. But the Night Runner series will be continuing this fall.
Wait. *checks which months are fall in the rest of the Northern Hemisphere* Yes, it will be fall. We’ll probably already have snow in Alaska, but that’s the price we pay to live in a place so…Alaskan. (I couldn’t think of anything nicer to say)
Syd and Mal and a few other favorites will be back, as well as characters of questionable morality and one total A-hole. Stay tuned.

It’s been quiet here on the blog. Too quiet, you say? You are correct. A lot has been going on in The Little Life of Regan Summers but most of it hasn’t, unfortunately, been blog-worthy or blog-appropriate. Or, really, all that interesting to people who aren’t me.
But that’s all about to change. Things are afoot. Things related to a certain Alaskan vampire runner and a certain vampire of dubious origin. (Can you guess who? I bet you can, I bet you can!)
I’d advise you to watch this space, but I don’t want your eyes to dry out. So, instead, I’ll casually – no big deal, y’know – suggest you check back over the course of the next few weeks. There will be details. And maybe a title. And possibly more super cute pictures of animals. Or a snippet or two. And who knows what else? *cough* cover reveal *cough*
Anyway, it was nice to see you. I’ll try not to be such a stranger.
