Promise in Paperback!

The paperback of Promise of the Wolves releases today!  I realize that I’m biased because it’s mine and I love it, but I think it’s one of the best-lookin’ books ever in the world.  See the pretty cover?

I’ve been getting a lot of questions on the progress of Book Two, aka “Secrets of the Wolves.”  After a very challenging time in my personal life, I’m now making great progress on it and having lots of fun.  There’s a chapter from it in the paperback of Promise. Here’s the first paragraph of the chapter:

     I caught the delicate scent of distant prey and stopped, digging my paws into the earth.  Lifting my muzzle to the wind, I inhaled, allowing the distinctive ice-and-hoof aroma to sink into the back of my throat.  Snow deer, in our territory and on the move.  All at once, the blood rushed to the sensitive spot just behind my ears.  My mouth began to water with the promise of the hunt, and every muscle in my body hungered for the chase.  Next to me, Ázzuen stood as still as I was, only his ears twitching.  Then his dark grey head began to sway a little, pulled between the lure of prey and our task.
     “We can’t go after them,” I said.  “We have to keep moving.”

 

And I’ve just decided that both the wolves and ravens like to gamble. They place bets on all sorts of things.  The ravens are better at it than are the wolves.  Not sure what I’m going to do with this, but it amuses me greatly.

And I’m at last on Twitter:

  1. I just listened to the CD version last night, from like disc 2 to the end ^.^.
    just wanted to say that I love your story and can’t wait to read book 2.
    I definitely need to pick this up when I get the chance~!
    lookit teh pretty cover O.O ~!

  2. cant wait for part 2 hope you can have it out by next year or this year

  3. I bought this book when I was in the Toronto airport at the end of November. I had a two hour flight and a two hour wait, I decided I was going to get a book to pass the time. I’ve always been obsessed with wolves, and have my own pack traveling around in my area. I was looking at the rack out front of a little convenience store/knick knack place, and at first glance I didn’t see anything I wanted. I was thinking to myself. “I really want a book about wolves, from their view point.” Low and behold, a second glance and this paper back was staring right at me. I read the teaser and immediately bought it. Best book I’ve bought in so long.

  4. I just wanted to tell you that I loved your book. I can’t believe that I hadn’t discovered it before. At first I had just bought it because it was a bargin at barnes and nobles, I needed 4 more dollars to get free shipping, and because I loved wolves. I am so glad that I found it; I was unable to put it down until I finished it. It is one of the best book I have ever read; and I’ve read a lot of books:). I like to think that it was destiny that brougt Promise of the Wolves and me together. I hope that I’ll be as good a writer as you someday.
