DOWN WITH VAMPS releasing on the 25th!

Aric’s scent overpowered the stale blood, the heat of his body a scorching fire that licked at my already burning skin. Hotter. Fiercer. And when our breaths mingled in the too-intimate slice of space between us, all that hurt, all the fury that had been bubbling through me like an unstable brew, erupted in an outpour that refused to be contained.

“Let go of me,” I snarled, staring up at Aric’s face. “I’m done with your lies. Done.”

My breaths came out hard, and my whole body buzzed, a stark contrast to the statue-stillness of Aric as he kept me caged against the door. But his eyes—they blazed.

Time glitched, and, like in that alley behind Drei Palmen, the sphere made of our energies that ensconced us seemed to detach from the rest of the world.

The charge built up.

As did my pent-up frustration.

As did Aric’s own demons, locked up tight somewhere in the dark for far too long.

The fuse sparked, and there was no stopping it.

I hate you, I hate you, I hate you, the words rolled on repeat through my head as my breaths deepened. Aric’s gaze swept down to my lips—

I wasn’t sure who moved first.

But as that charge went off like a supernova, Aric and I surged into each other.

Our mouths and bodies collided with a need that became its own primal force. The ground-shaking magnitude of the detonation only fueled us further. We turned into each other’s centers of gravity, our energies shielding nothing of our inescapable pull toward each other, but mirroring all the depths—even those we might have wanted to keep concealed.

But this hunger, this desire… It refused to let us be anything but our raw, unfiltered selves.

My back hit the door, and Aric ground against me.

The demanding press of his body coaxed a moan from my lips. He stole it away with his tongue and teeth, kissing me so fucking hard I was pretty sure the very foundations of reality were about to unravel. I groaned and wound my fingers through his hair.

Spurred on by my action, Aric brought one hand to my butt, then followed the curve to my thigh, right to the hem of my dress, and yanked me even closer to him. I hooked my leg around him, matching him grind for grind.

Fangs nicked my lips, and that scrape, that edge of roughness wrought of primal lust, set off another detonation.

We clashed as if we were two vortexes granted release after an eternity of oppression.

Kolovrat Universe reading order

Although all of my series and standalones can be read independently, some of you have reached out, asking about the reading order to follow the actual timeline of the Kolovrat Universe.

The “Present” section refers to the time before the War, the “Future” takes place afterwards.

If you want to see this list typed out (with attached buy links) or simply check for any updates/added titles, please click here.

Maintenance/distribution notice

Just a quick notice to let you know that all three currently published books in the Lotte Freundenberger series will be switching distributors in preparation for the fourth one which is scheduled for early next year. I also intend to move the entire Black Werewolves series.

While I love wide distribution and all the benefits it offers to readers, a girl’s gotta eat and this arrangement, unfortunately, isn’t working out.

Once the move is done, both series will be available solely on Amazon (under different ASINs as I’ll be using their platform directly), and as soon as they’re taken off all extended channels, they will be enrolled in KU to match the rest of the titles in the Kolovrat universe.

All my fantasy books (Shadowfire Trilogy, Iron Head Trilogy, Forged in Flames) will remain wide, as will Cotton Candy.

Thank you for understanding while I switch things around!

With love,

Gaja

Quick Shadow World Announcement

Some of you might have noticed that the pre-orders for Shadow World have been cancelled/disappeared off vendor sites. And yes, that’s all true.

First of all, I’d like to stress that Shadow World will be releasing on December 18th as originally planned. But…

(Here comes the fun part)

Okay, I love technology. Seriously. A-freaking-dore it. But sometimes, the relationship just doesn’t quite go in the direction one would expect. Sounds familiar?

(I hope not, though I think the answer for most people on that would be a grumbling yes)

Unfortunately, this wasn’t a case of a printer not hooking up to wi-fi or a computer freezing (or even Word doing its thing and correcting words despite having auto-correct off). Nope, this had to do with distribution and something fishy going on with the pre-order commands not going through once entered into the system.

Since I didn’t want to wing it and hope for an outcome that wouldn’t be a complete mess, the only way to go forward to was to wipe the slate clean and start again. So that’s exactly what I did.

I’m still not sure if everything is solved now, but at least it looks that way.

And, hopefully, it will stay that way all up until the 18th, when Shadow World releases.

Last but not least, I want to thank everyone who had their pre-orders cancelled for their patience. As well as all of you who’re probably clicking on dead links in the meantime.

(*aggressively writes down FIX LINKS in bullet journal*)

Seriously, I love all of you, and I hope you’ll enjoy Crina’s story in a little less than two weeks’ time!

 

Release day: EVENFALL

55373d2ed99710fc92328cec0ca8fa18dd6279c3

“The thing I noticed above all else when unconsciousness released me from its talons of darkness, was that for the first time in my life, I found myself gazing at the night sky.

The second, just as enchanting, yet infinitely more unbelievable, was that the world around me was no longer mine.

A raspy laugh escaped my lips. 

I should have been scared, terrified of this impossibility. But I didn’t have the strength to do anything more than roll over onto my back and drink it all in. 

Above me, a spill of flickering, pale golden light scattered across the canvas, painting a breathtaking blend of black, violet, and deep blue. My breath hitched as a thought wormed its way in. I blinked, refusing to acknowledge that hopeful voice in case this smattering of illuminated specs was a consequence of my…fall?

Given my undignified position and the sting that crawled across my palms, I had to have fallen.”
