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!

I am tremendously pleased to present the cover for Running in the Dark, the sequel to Don’t Bite the Messenger.
Those of you with keen eyes, or those of you who regularly circle Anchorage by air, will notice that the city on the cover is not Anchorage, Alaska. Not even close.
After surviving a vampire turf war in Alaska, vampire courier Sydney Kildare is back behind the wheel and working under an assumed name in Chile. She doesn’t speak the language, doesn’t know the city and—worst of all—has to drive a crappy car.
What she does have is Malcolm Kelly, her sort-of boyfriend and manager of the city’s vampire population. But with Malcolm preoccupied by bloodsucker business—and a gorgeous vampiress from his past—Sydney feels more alone than ever.
But Sydney has more than her love life to worry about. She’s got vamps on her tail, mysterious deliveries that leave death in their wake, and old enemies targeting her to get to Malcolm. Turns out he’s got a history more deadly than she ever imagined, and she’ll have to use every skill in her arsenal to stay alive…
This is the feel-good story of what happens when you think you’ve found Mr. Right only to discover that he’s got baggage. Cruel, angry, resourceful baggage. And I might be kidding about the “feel-good” part. Being an outsider is hard. Being an outsider surrounded by monsters is even harder. Think Syd’s up to the task? 🙂
Running in the Dark will be released on October 29th. It is available for pre-order from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
