First, thanks to a reader looking for a copy of Touching Fire: Paul’s Dream, I have learned that Liquid Silver Books/Publishing is no longer in business and Paul’s Dream is apparently out of print. sigh

But! Silver lining: I get to revise the book, which is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time. So… yay?

Second, Yahoo!Groups is shutting down, which means my newsletter/mailing list will be gone come December. I…don’t really see a silver lining here. People can subscribe to my blog, but sometimes I put life stuff in there. I have a Tumblr, but that account is pure chaos. I have Twitter, but it’s, well, uh, Twitter. The Yahoo!Groups newsletter was strictly for book and contest news. All business so that your inbox wouldn’t be filled with personal/political/reblogged art of hot guys and Marvel memes.

I’m thinking of switching to MailChimp. What do you xudes think of MailChimp? Do you have a preference for another service? If so, let me know, yeah?

And now, finally, something cool.

As promised (months and months ago) here is the cover reveal for the third edition of Want Me—

What do you think? Since this will be the third edition, but with very few changes to the text inside, I decided to blend elements of the covers from the first and second editions. Check it out:

The base image:

Then, the color scheme:

Cool, yeah? I also added some shooting stars because you can never have too many shooting stars. Unless you’re one of those poor bastards in “Day of the Triffids.” If so, Walker’s brand of magic is the least of your problems. O.O

I am currently working on the final draft of Last Heartbeat: Flow. The book now has a cover. Which I designed. All by myself. But that reveal will be later. 😉

Edit: Just found out I can’t even send a message to my newsletter subscribers that there will soon be no newsletter. wtf?

Wear a mask.

    Thanks for the update. I’m excited to read your new book! And the new cover design for Want Me looks great! This is a hard time for everyone, but reading something new from you puts a lot of joy in my heart. Thank you for sharing your writing and imagination with all of us. It’s appreciated, now more than ever!

    Hello Rowan! Being the fan of your writing, especially the early books, i’m so glad they still have some special place in your heart and mind. Was re-reading “Warm Rush – Chasing Winter” recently and just couldn’t stay away from saying: THANK YOU for that incredible book. There is a special category of literature I can return to again and again, when i feel down or close to giving up – Warm Rush is definitely one of them.
    So i was wondering, from the name of it, was it supposed to be a first in a series? If that’s so, are you considering returning to those plans or have you outgrown that setting?
