Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of you--here's hoping that 2015 is THE year to celebrate!

Now, a bit of news: There will be no more new blog entries on this site--I'm using it simply for archived posts. Everything is moving over to my website, including the blog, so it's sort of one-stop shopping--everything Megan Chance in one place.

So please, update your bookmarks, subscriptions, etc. to reflect the change. My website is here, and you can access the blog easily from the tab on the page. It also provides an RSS feed.

I've loved LiveJournal, but it's much easier for me this way, so ...

Have a wonderful 2015!

Authors Christmas Lunch!

Yesterday, I took a break from this interminable editing (too many distractions--really I just need to bear down and get this done!) to attend our annual Authors Christmas Lunch. I have known these wonderful women for years--dating back to my days writing historical romance. Here are a few pictures from the event:

As always, a wonderful time!

Now I have other good news: Inamorata is heading for German translation, and should be out sometime next year. Also ... something else to announce soon, but you'll have to wait for that one!

Dedember Bone River Special!

All through December, Bone River is being offered at a special price at Amazon . The Kindle ebook is $1.99, and the paperback edition is marked down to $6.50. If you buy the paperback, you can also add on the Kindle edition for just $.99 through Kindle Matchbook.

In other news: I spent Saturday afternoon with Kristin Hannah and Patrick Jennings at Liberty Bay Books in Poulsbo, WA, for small business Saturday. It was, as always, lots of fun. If you need an autographed edition of one of my books, they have plenty, and will ship to wherever you are.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yesterday, I took the day off to have lunch and see a movie with Kristin Hannah (her new book, The Nightingale launches Feb. 3rd--be sure to put that on your calendar. It's great historical fiction set during WWII in France).

Here I am, lifting a glass to all of you--

Remember, I'll be at Liberty Bay Books, in Poulsbo, with Kristin, at 3:30 on Saturday, Nov. 29, for Small Business Saturday, signing books and handselling some of my favorites.

But today I'm taking the day off to bake for Thanksgiving. Wishing all of you who celebrate a lovely and safe one!

Desk Raven

Last week, my beloved desk raven (and irritating muse), took a direct hit and broke. (seen here in one piece)

While I was not certain of my ability to fix him, I proceeded with the operation, because I love this guy.

A friend suggested I use black sharpie to make him look perfect again, but then I read an article on the Japanese art of Kintsugi, which highlights repairs with gold or silver under the philosophy that these things are part of an object's history--a testament to survival. Which seemed appropriate.

So here he is, beloved, back at his post, and scowling at me as usual, all his scars on display.

Excellently Cool News

Yours truly is featured in Seattle Weekly's front page story this week, about Amazon publishing. Here is the link.

Also, if you're looking for a print version of Inamorata (in which case, I hope you've seen the special Amazon price deal for the month of November), look no further than Walmart. Inamorata should be showing up in their book section soon.

And yesterday, I threw caution to the winds and took a day off, which resulted in this lovely lunch with some of my favorite people: Kristin Hannah, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Christina Dodd.

Finally, the edit for the third book in the Fianna Trilogy, The Veil, has just hit my inbox, so you know what I'll be working on for the time being.

Back to work!

Night Out

Here I am with my best friend and critique partner, Kristin Hannah, taking a much needed break at one of our favorite haunts last night. We did do some brainstorming, but mostly we drank cosmos, wine, and relaxed. Which is a pretty good thing.
