It's like this....I made a promise to my fans, and that required overlooking something. We were aiming for Christmas, and almost made it.

Among Life, Interrupted for me, sickness for my tech team and a death in the family for my art team, two mistakes slipped through on the cover of Spiral Path. They aren't big mistakes, but they are enough to annoy me.

They have been fixed, and I can upload the enhanced cover at any time.

So this is your warning. Usually there is no first edition in a Print-On-Demand book, but because of this tiny mistake slipping through, there is a first edition of Spiral Path.

Most people don't care about such things. But some do. So if you do...

There may be a snazzy, limited edition. There may be a version from New York someday.

But this one will always be the first round. (I have a few of them to mail out now, and a few to save for maybe a Kickstarter someday.)

So if you want one? Go order it--CreateSpace, Amazon, Barnes & Noble.

Over at Deborah J. Ross's blog, nice things are being said about several books. Spiral Path was one of those books.

In the meantime, the water demons have convinced the air demons to help smother or push out the fire elemental running the pilot light. My cat is very unhappy and wants me to eat a larger breakfast....

Over at Mary Robinette Kowal's web site, she runs a (usually) weekly feature called My Favorite Bit. Authors drop by and talk about their new books. The point is, what do you absolutely adore about the book? What's the part that makes you all "look at this awesome thing here!" It may be a scene, or something that had to be cut, or even world building, the scaffolding behind the curtain.

So I told her about the part of Spiral Path where I thought everything changed.

What happens when your life changes in the course of a single night? When the world splits open and reveals something so dangerous, that the people who love you immediately take action to protect you from it?

This is where Spiral Path, the third book in the Night Calls saga, begins. Thirteen year old Alfreda Sorensson lives in an alternative pioneer America right on the cusp of the War of 1812. There are strong practitioners—magic users who are also gifted with knowledge of herbs and healing—who protect the communities out in the territories. An old soul, Allie has bloomed into a potential power, and that is attracting people—and entities—who would like to use her. Although she has learned the first notes of her family’s dark legacy, Wild Magic, she knows no ritual magic.

Ritual magic may be the key to her survival.

The fine folks over at The Book Pushers have put up the cover for Spiral Path (Night Calls #3)!  As always, I've done my best to make this a stand-alone book.  You can start reading anywhere in one of my series, but there are advantages to reading them in order.

Book Pushers also linked their reviews of the first two books in their post, so if you missed them and are curious, you have easy access.

“The world is woven of secrets.”

Join the adventure!  And to make it easier to encourage friends, you can find Night Calls on sale for .99 this month at your favorite venues.  It hit #88 at the Kindle store last Tuesday!

I expect this to stay...

I knew most of what was on her sheet. There were a couple of questions about figuring the trajectory of a boulder thrown from a trebuchet, but since I didn’t ever expect to be storming a castle, I wasn’t worried about not knowing that one. I also had no idea how to make a bridge strong enough to hold a wagon of wool and a four-horse team.

I wasn’t planning on building bridges, either. But you never know. Maybe they would teach me that here, too.
