#NAMEthatSUITOR to enter my Audiobook Giveaway for BY HELEN'S HAND!

I know guys, I know -- I'm the worst blogger these days. But you'll find more regular posts over at blog.amaliacarosella.com right now as I ramp up for the release of BY HELEN'S HAND on May 10th, including a giveaway for a copy of the audiobook edition AND an owl pendant to match the bracelet/necklace my fabulous cover artist gave Helen on both her covers!


Klikky Klikky to head over and check it out -- and please do enter to win! It's no fun playing #NAMEthatSUITOR by myself. :P There's also a link to the goodreads giveaway which is happening NOW and I hope you'll throw your hat in that ring as well!

In other news: I finally and at last wrapped the draft for The Manuscript of Doom, which will be an Amalia Carosella title, and I hope to have more information for you guys soon on that project. But readers of Amalia Dillin!me I think will be particularly interested! I'm destroying the developmental edits with the best editor in the world as we speak. (And when it gets closer to the big day, I'll definitely be talking about why that manuscript was such a beast to write!) I've also got another bronze age historical (my Hippodamia and Pirithous book) in the final stages of production, release date TBA! I'll let you know when I have it pinned down!

Next up is Orc 3, and I'll be throwing myself into that head-first as soon as the Manuscript of Doom edits are wrapped. Believe me, I want to get Orc 3 out to you guys as much as you guys want to read it. But be on the lookout for an HONOR AMONG ORCS promotion in June, around the release of Warcraft the movie. It just seemed fitting.

Finally: Do definitely subscribe to The Amaliad and I'll deliver behind the scenes book stuff as well as the most important updates about Authors!Me directly to your inbox!

I think that's a wrap for now!

Appearances and Fate of the Gods News

Firstly: ALBACON!
I have a schedule -- and I look forward to seeing some of you there!
Friday:
  • I'll be taking part in a panel on Ways to Publish on 1pm during the Writer's Workshop and available to offer critiques at 4pm. (I'm also planning to attend the lunch on Friday, so you can catch me then, too!)
Saturday:
  • I'm signing at 4pm! Come see me! There will be Butts!
  • I'll have a full selection of Amalia Carosella AND Amalia Dillin books for sale through Flights of Fantasy Books and Games at the con, so if you don't have paperbacks yet, you can grab them there!
Sunday: 
  • 11am panel on Mythology in Science Fiction and Fantasy!

Second Best: Another Opportunity to Say Hello!
And if you won't be making it to ALBACON this year, I'll also be taking part in Local Author Day at Barnes and Noble in Colonie Center on Saturday, April 2, 2015 as Amalia Carosella. I'll be thrilled to sign anything you have by Amalia Dillin as well, but only Helen of Sparta will be available for sale at B&N.

If you already have a signed copy of HELEN, consider stopping in to pre-order BY HELEN'S HAND, coming May 10th! I'm hoping to have some bookmarks for BHH on hand, as well as bookmarks and magnets for HELEN and my Amalia Dillin books.


Lastly: Fate of the Gods
You might have noticed that my Fate of the Gods books are currently unavailable from your favorite vendor of choice -- but don't worry, they'll be back VERY shortly. Paperbacks will continue to be available via all the usual channels, but ebooks will be kindle only for the time being (though I hope not forever). I apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. Please hang in there while I get things sorted on my end during this hopefully brief time of transition!

And now I am back to the writing cave -- fingers crossed this manuscript doesn't actually kill me before I'm done. See you at Albacon or Local Author's Day!

Postcards from Asgard Valentine's Day Sale!

I've been keeping busy writing the words -- 98K and counting on this latest manuscript. But I thought you might like to know about this Valentine's Day sale for my paranormal romance novella!


This is a kindle countdown, so from now until the 15th, POSTCARDS will be just 99 cents, then it'll be 1.99 until the 19th! So grab your copy while the grabbing is good, before it goes back up to full price (2.99!)

And please do consider leaving a review if you enjoyed the book! More on POSTCARDS FROM ASGARD below, for those of you who might be new to the blog!



A New Adult Paranormal Romance Novella for your enjoyment, 
currently available for kindle and in paperback!
Amazon | B&N  | Goodreads
Ordinarily, Gwen likes goats, even makes her living by milking them, but these two are some kind of devil-spawn, and one of them is pawing the ground, horns aimed at her gut. The fact that they were followed by a blonde farmhand with a much too charming smile isn't all that much of an improvement, either.

But Thjalfi makes himself useful. He's lean and smart, with a warmth in his pale blue eyes that makes her shiver, and she can't deny that he has a way with her horses. He seems to have a way with her, too.

There's just one problem: Thjalfi's a slave, a bondservant to the god of thunder, Thor, and no matter how far they fall in love, he can't stay.

But this so-called god who owns him? He's about to learn just how far a Midwestern girl will go to free the boy she loves.

***

"In Postcards, Ms. Dillin takes an old myth and turns it into a beautiful contemporary love story. Gwen was strong and stubborn -- her reaction [...] was authentic, believable, and all together hysterical."
-- S.T. Bende, Author of the Elsker Saga
