What Lia’s Been Up To
Wow guys, I have been super remiss in blogging this past year. But then again, I’ve been super remiss in writing this year as well. I had a fairly good excuse for this: in January my sister and I opened a tea room/cafe. I don’t want to go into the details, lets just say it <b>seemed like a good idea at the time</b> but once I was stuck working a 9-5, 7 days a week with no time or energy to write I realized just how important writing is to me.
We closed our tea room at the end of October, just in time for me to participate in NaNoWriMo and that has been SO MUCH fun!
After a very long 15 months I’ve finally finished writing the sequel to The Omega Prince! This story has gone through several changes since I began writing and evolved into a bit of a monster compared to the first book, clocking in at about 40% more words than The Omega Prince.
The Kingdom of Pacchia 2: All the King’s Men – Advanced Reader Copies
All the King’s Men picks up very soon after where The Omega Prince left off: the Tri-fete has been cancelled, Duke Brier has been arrested, and Lord Riven remains persona-non-grata at the high court. Tensions mount as the high king calls for a gemōt, or a legal tribunal, to examine Lord Riven’s accusations against Lord Bourn. It’s got romance, action, political intrigue, and some hot Alpha/Omega loving.
If you follow my tumblr, you may have noticed that I’ve posted the first couple of pages from Pacchia #2 over this past week. Now I’d like to offer up ARCs (advanced reading copies) of the FULL novel to my readers. If you enjoyed reading the first book in this series and are interested in getting your hands on a free copy of the sequel fill out the form below and let me know before December 7th and I’ll send you your copy as well as my thanks for sticking by me despite having disappeared for most of the last year ;)
I’m so excited to announce the launch of my new series of short mysteries: LACHLAN GRAHAM OCCULT INVESTIGATIONS #1! This series is set in the same universe as the BLOOD & BONE Series and will feature several cameos and cross-overs from those novels.
Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s original Sherlock Holmes shorts, the Lachlan novels are short self-contained mysteries. If you enjoyed the Blood & Bone series, I think you will enjoy these as well. Featuring magic, werewolves, everyday humans, misunderstandings, murder and a good dose of UST all set against iconic Seattle.
Buckle-up for my new series; I hope you enjoy it!
#1 The Suicide Case Available on Amazon!
A good cop, a good son, a loyal partner–none of this was enough to save Lachlan Graham’s nerves when his entire world fell apart three years ago.
A former Seattle Police Officer, Lachlan has spent the time since he left the police force quietly trying to piece his life together after being abandoned by his partner: Detective Vector Clanahan.
Now, his carefully constructed solitude is about be invaded on all fronts.
Maybe a little paranormal action is just what the doctor would have ordered.
I’m sure it’s not surprise to anyone reading this blog, and really I guess it wasn’t a surprise to me either (that’s a lie it was sort of a surprise but that’s because in my head you guys would be excited about my other projects as I am even though you know nothing about them XD lol), that a FOURTH book in the Blood & Bone…err trilogy?? should I just start calling it a series?? a FOURTH Blood & Bone novel was the run away winner of my “What Should Lia Write Next” poll.
Heck, I really want book 4 too after the emotional angstfest the trilogy has been.
So, my goal over the next 2 months will be to write book 4 (Tentatively titled “Ex Sanguine” for now) and hopefully post a few snippets as I finish it. I will also be working on the Lachlan Graham Occult Investigations serial because I’m planning on tying it back into Ex Sanguin (Trust me guys, I think you’ll like this spin-off serial ESPECIALLY if Patrick and his family were your favs ;))))
In the meantime, the bulk of my time continues to be sucked up by the tea room and SWTOR (OMG I’m a guild officer assistant in my guild now, the pressurree!!) but you can follow me on twitter @liacooperwrites for sporadic updates and musings ;)
