Blackbird Nominated!

I’m pretty stoked about this, you guys. Blackbird has been nominated for best paranormal romance in the M/M Romance group on goodreads. Just being put in a category with the likes of Jordan L. Hawk and T.J. Klune is an honor, regardless of the winner.

The cover, by Madeline Farlow, has also been nominated as best cover of the year, and she completely deserves it. Thank you for making me an amazing cover, Maddie!

Cover Preview – In Any Light

I’ve been planning to give Isla her own story since it became apparent how important she was to Rowan Harbor and its future. After book six, I realized that in the overall plot, this was the perfect time to tell her story. Her novelette will be released at the same time as book seven of the Rowan Harbor Cycle, Eagle in the Hawthorn, which is the current project!


The death of her mentor has left Isla MacKenzie fumbling in the dark. She’s expected to perform as the sole witch on the town council, but she also might be the only witch in town who can’t use her powers. The one bright spot in her life is Cassidy Simon, the town’s beautiful, charismatic vampire bar owner. She’s not sure what Cassidy wants from their relationship, but she hopes that whatever it is, she can give it. The events of a single day are about to change everything for Isla, and only she can control her own destiny.

The cover, as all Rowan Harbor covers, is by the lovely Madeline Farlow at clause&effect

Asexual Awareness Week

Hey guys, it’s Asexual Awareness Week again, and I thought I’d link the blog article I wrote on the subject last year:

Asexual Awareness Week: Guest Post by Sam Burns

It’s been incredibly important and powerful for me to have a community of people who support aces. Thank you all!

Pre-order of Stag and the Ash is available now

This always feels like it happens sooner than I expect, but here it is. The pre-order of Stag and the Ash is up on Amazon.

Meanwhile, I’ve been planning Adder and Willow, the next installment in The Rowan Harbor Cycle, as well as a certain secret project that shall remain nameless until way closer to completion. (hint: there may be witches and a coffee shop involved.)

Hope everyone’s having a fabulous weekend!

Wolf and the Holly in Audio!

Wolf and the Holly is now available in audio, many thanks to the lovely folks at Tantor. Like Blackbird in the Reeds, it’s voiced by the talented Chris Chambers. I look forward to hearing his take on Fox and Birch next!

Stag and the Ash cover!

It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me, and I’m procrastinating, so I thought I’d come show you what I’m working on.

The lovely and talented Madeline Farlow is doing the covers for The Rowan Harbor Cycle, and here’s her piece for Stag and the Ash, which is slated to be released on Thursday, June 28th:

Mr. Burns tells me that this one is his second favorite after the cover for Blackbird in the Reeds, which I think will always be my favorite, too. What do you think?

Anyway, here’s the (working) burb:

Jesse Hunter is finally trying to be an adult, but still feels like an act. His place on the town council is a sham. He’s rarely called on to do anything. His boyfriend is grieving the loss of his mother, and while everyone seems to think he’s doing a great job caring for Sean, Jesse feels like he’s more of a distraction than a real help.

March is shaping up to be a bad month. First, random chance leads him to the realization that the town’s recent trouble is his fault. Then new werewolves come into town, and it turns out they’re also Jesse’s responsibility. He feels like he may be at his breaking point, and he doesn’t want to drag his friends and loved ones down with him. But how will he handle it alone?

Succubus and the City

Last week about this time, everyone on the mailing list got a free copy of my Rowan Harbor novella, Succubus and the City. Now, I’m making it available to anyone who would like to sign up.

Succubus and the City is the story of Sean’s brother, and how he’s doing in the fallout of Hawk in the Rowan. You don’t have to have read Hawk, or any Rowan Harbor book, for Succubus to make sense. But it does contain a spoiler for something that happens in book four of the series.

Download Succubus and the City here!

 

Blackbird in the Reeds is in audio!

As of Tuesday, Blackbird in the Reeds is available on Audible, and I have to say I’m incredibly excited about it. Chris Chambers has done an amazing job bringing the book to life, and I cannot wait to hear what he does with the next book in the series!

(for anyone who gets this far, I know I’ve been thoroughly remiss in updating recently, and I’m trying to do better. Thanks for sticking with me.)

Wolf and the Holly!

Hey guys!

Today’s the day, Wolf and the Holly is available for sale! Next on the schedule, Fox and Birch, Fletcher’s first book–cover reveal this weekend!

Wolf and the Holly

Hey guys! Excited to share with you the cover for Wolf and the Holly, which will be coming out on February 8th. It’s been up on goodreads for a couple of days now, but I’m late putting it here because I’m still trying to fight off last month’s cold and seem to be moving in slow motion.

Five years ago, Jesse dropped out of college and came home to Rowan Harbor to find safety with his pack. A broken man, he’s been living as though the world is ending—allergic to responsibility and spending most of his nights at the local bar.

But he can’t avoid growing up forever. On the night of his thirtieth birthday party, he finds his childhood friend Isla unconscious, attacked in the middle of their peaceful hometown. The wolf inside him wants to protect its people from the slick-haired, smooth-talking vampire who’s brought trouble to town, and Jesse can’t run from his instincts any longer.

Now that his inner wolf is out of its cage, it’s picked the most inconvenient moment to find its mate. Sean Anderson—recently back from college and much changed from the skinny preteen Jesse once knew—is just what he never knew he needed.
