Okay, fine. It’s just wordpress got fancy. BUT WHATEVER. I HAVE A PRETTY NEW BLOG AND I LOVE IT.

Look at Jane! She’s so HAWT! I love her sassy little seal self. I think she just winked at me! Minx.

To celebrate my awesome new blog, I’m going to run a CONTEST! To win one of THESE! Yes, my friends, that is an ARC of TEMPEST RISING!


To win? All you need to do is comment below! I’ll randomly choose a winner using my highly scientific CONTEST CAN!


If the comment box, or anything else, doesn’t work, totally don’t blame me. It’s someone else’s fault. Just tell me and I’ll swear at my iMac till it accedes to my demands. (Actually, I’ll send a panicked email to Orbit, then watch as my roommate fixes the problem, then send another email to Orbit apologizing for the original email.)

And while you’re here, I’m going to EXERCISE MY PIMP HAND! For there are two NEW LEAGUE RELEASES for your reading pleasure!

First out of the gates, is Cherie Priest’s BONESHAKER.

In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice. Thus was Dr. Blue’s Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine born.But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead.Now it is sixteen years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue’s widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. Until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history.
His quest will take him under the wall and into a city teeming with ravenous undead, air pirates, criminal overlords, and heavily armed refugees. And only Briar can bring him out alive.

Next up is Michelle Rowen’s new YA Para-Rom, DEMON PRINCESS: REIGN OR SHINE

As if trying to fit in at a new school and navigating the social scene isn’t enough stress for her, sixteen-year-old Nikki Donovan just found out that her long-lost father is, in fact, the demon king of the Shadowlands — the world that separates and protects ours from the Underworld. When she is brought there by the mysterious (and surprisingly cute) messenger Michael, she learns that her father is dying, and that he wants her to assume the throne. To complicate matters, a war is brewing between the Shadowlands and the Underworld, her half-demon qualities are manfesting, and her growing feelings for Michael are forbidden. Ruling a kingdom, navigating a secret crush, and still making it home by curfew — what’s a teenage demon princess to do?

How good do those look? SO GOOD. My pimp hand is so excited about both of those books and their covers that it’s not even stinging after that pimpage.

So yeah! Awesome! We have a HOT NEW SITE and some LEAGUE PIMPAGE here at the home of Jane True. And keep your eyes peeled. . . my release date is coming soon and there will definitely be some EXCITING contests for books/prizes/small mammals (okay, those don’t ship so good).

We should also be releasing the cover of Tracking the Tempest very shortly, as well as unveiling an excerpt from Tempest Rising! YAY!

So comment below to win an ARC! And a gerbil! Just kidding about the gerbil!

  1. Ohhh, pretty blog page, I bow down to you. The background is my favorite color. I would love to win an ARC of Tempest Rising, that would be too cool. And I'm looking forward to both the books you're pimping, so good job.

  2. I'm first! Gorgeous new blog…and very nice exercise for your pimp hand tonight, huh? 😉 I'm picking up Michelle's next time I'm at B&N.

    Looking forward to TR! ;D

  3. Oh, me me me! Please enter me in the contest. I'm excited to finally get to read your book. Of course, I've gone stalker about it. I'll read it one way or the other. 😀

    I'm also probably going to try Boneshaker. I'm hesitant because I've never tried Steampunk before … and I'm not a historical fiction buff. The steampunk look is so cool, though, that I want to like the genre. Just call me Poser T. Driftsmoke.

  4. OMG I LOVE the new blog it looks AWESOME… usually i don't enter the contests, but enter me in this one I would LOVE an ARC of your book.

  5. Hello and I want to say not only does your book sound delish but the other two… Michelles and Cherie's as well…. thanks for the invite and feel free to pick me for the win… LOL

  6. Wow! Am I the first person (or at least one of the first) to comment with the intention of winning an ARC of Tempest Rising?

    Neato! (Yes. Sometimes I used the word neato. I am not ashamed.)

    How excited am I about this book? VERY! First of all, I can’t be more excited for you, Nicole! Secondly, Jane does look super hot. I mean it. (Or HAWT, if you prefer.) I find myself actually wondering what steamy hot Selkie love is like.


    Well, the entire world will know soon.

    Nicole, the ARC … does it come autographed? I hope so!

  7. I love the new background and I'm STILL totally in love with the cover of TR! Ms. Tancredi does awesome possum work. I can't wait to get my hands on this book. I'm so excited for it!

    Talk to you later Dah-Link. (Remember to use pre-assigned frenchified accent.) Haha. 😉

  8. The new look is awesome, perfect background color. I love it. Enter me please, I would love to have an ARC of your book.

  9. Me! Pick me! I want to win the gerbil so bad I can almost taste it! (Not the gerbil. (Although maybe when we run out of Cheez-Its…))

  10. Hello, Nicole very nice blog and you don't need to enter me either I've already got the book pre-ordered.

  11. I have heard GREAT things about this book and I will buy it even if I don't win the ARC. Love the cover…she looks like a saucy minx!

    Surely my luck will be good enough to get picked from a Cafe du Monde coffee can, LOLLOL!

    P.S. You can keep the gerbil, I've already got a trouble-maker ferret…and a crazy Irish Terrier.

  12. Beautiful blog & Awesome book cover! Not half an hour ago I was talking about reading Boneshaker then lo & behold here it is prominently displayed on your new fabulous blog. How cool is that.

  13. Wow, the site looks great. Word press did you say.

    I would be honored to win a copy of your arc to review on my site, to spread the love! I am so excited about all these Leaguer releases! Woot, woot.

  14. I hope nothing bad ever happens to your purse. I was looking at your photos from Dragon Con and thought, man that purse has saved me lots of frustration. I don't know what an ARC is, but it sounds exciting!


    Squid 🙂

  15. The new blog is very pretty, Nicole. It was nice to meet you at Dragon*Con (I was your moderator).

  17. I just recently discovered you and your work. Am looking forward to your blog and more of your writing.

    oh, and I LOVe LoVE LoVE the cover of Tempest Rising

  18. Win or lose, I just want to say how much I love your redesign! Beauteous as the cover – and boy, do I harbor some *MAJOR* Jane True cover lurve. I'm dying–DYING I tell you–for this novel's release!!!

  19. Did you know that if you get really close to the computer screen, stare at one of the lighter blue curly things and then rapidly open and close your eyes a lot, you get real dizzy and tilt over?

  20. I totally worship both you and your lovely new blog! Fingers crossed that you'll pick my name out of the magic Cafe du Monde coffee can! I seriously need this book! Seriously! *L*

  21. I'm so pleased for you, Nic! And the new site looks great. I can't wait for the books or the unveiling of the next cover. You are fab, and totally deserve a fab author career!

    Ok gushing is now over! Enter me in! Oh, and near to the time of Tracking's release, I'll have to grab you for another interview…people love you!

    Take care, lady!

  22. Hi Nicole 🙂

    Congratulations on the new blog 🙂

    I just got Michelle Rowen's DEMON PRINCESS in the mail (& on its release day).


    I'm getting BONESHAKER by Cherie Priest too.

    I would love to get TEMPEST RISING – I've such great reviews for it.

    (And isn't the cover great?)

    All the best,



  23. It's just an entire blog post of awesome looking covers.

    I want to get Boneshaker this week. Last time I checked, it was #13 on Amazon's sci fi/fantasy sales list. The Reluctant Adults are taking the world by storm, lol.

    I love the fact that you have a Jane True theme on your blog now.

  24. The new blog looks verra nice! Don't enter me in the contest though. I'll be quite happy to lay down cash and support a fellow leaguer when Tempest Rising hits the shelves. 🙂

  25. Because of all the awesome releases this Fall, my reading pile is twice as big as it was over the summer. How will I ever get throoooough them all? Does the gerbil read, by any chance?

  26. The new look is all sorts of awesome! Picked up both books already. Now I need to find some time to read them. (Please don't send me a gerbil if I win. LOL)

  27. Love the new webpage. I can't believe you will be unveiling the cover to tracking the tempest so soon! Can't wait to see it. Oh, and sign me up for that contest – Jane True can be my little stocking stuffer this season 😉

  28. I love the new blog design. And I can't wait for Tempest Rising! The cover drew me in months ago (it's so awesome) and I've been waiting ever since.

  29. That is one badass contest can, I'd be honoured just to have put name put inside 😉 I love the cover of Temperest Rising and can't wait to read it!! So please enter me! I'm following your awesome blog… love the design, it's gorgeous!

    I've been wanting to read Demon Princess, but I hadn't read the synopsis for Boneshaker yet – it's going on my list now!

    Thanks! (If I win, I demand the gerbil too!)


  30. The blog rocks- awesome design, especially on the color front. *purplesquee*

    I'm disappointed about the gerbil, though. They're cute. 😀

    I can't believe there's a whole -month- until Tempest Rising comes out. I thought it was much shorter than that and was getting excited. Phooey.

  31. Aww! I want a gerbil. The blog is great and I love the illustrations. The cover is so gorgeous; not surprised it is getting buzz in of itself. And the nice things I am hearing about the book… I am very excited. Can't wait to read it!

  32. I'm excited to read your book! I saw the little snippet on Book Reviews By Jess thought it sounded great. Not to mention I'm from Maine too! And I love your blog!

  33. Sorry, there was a misprint in my website in the last comment… it's wildirishrose33.blogspot.com. I'm tired and can't think straight most days.

  34. Oh, you know me! Does that get me any extra points? *crossing-fingers* I want to read you book so bad! And I miss the articles you post on twitter about you-know-whats. LOL! I haven't been visiting twitter often, so you can totally blame me for that, sigh, stupid high school.

  35. Wow this looks nice. I like it alot. Very eye catching and a Peeling get it. yeah you prolly get that all the time. *sigh* I suck at humor, that's why I don't write it. Great job. Looks nice.

  36. Didn't I enter this already??? I thought so. Anyway please enter me new site looks FAB and I would LOVE to win an ARC

  37. Well, it's really still Rachel, but I don't think you mentioned that we can only enter once!!

    Seriously, Nicole, I am so excited to read your book ARC or not! And you are my first (journey into the urban fantasy genre) Yippeee!

  38. I love everything about this blog, the colors, your sassy little vixen and your sassy wording.

    Tempest Rising looks like it's going to be very good, I'd love to get the ARC of it. I'm also looking forward to reading Cherie Priest's Boneshaker. That one looks very good, I was able to read an excerpt of it a while ago.

  39. I know I'm not going to win because that never, ever happens, but I wanted to give you kudos on your hawt website and say I'm looking forward to purchasing your fine novel. So…kudos! Great website! And, uh…can't wait for the release! Woo hoo!

  40. I want this! Haha when I first saw the cover, I was like whoa. But it looks interesting to read!
