SERIAL UPDATES: THE HAREM MASTER, ANASTASIA, THE HEART OF THE KINGDOM

This week’s serial updates feature new chapters from:

Megan Derr’s The Harem Master updates with Chapter 5

Lord Demir has spent his life trying to appease a brutal, selfish king, and keep the concubines under his care alive—and now he is on the verge of losing everything. The council wants to abolish the harems, there are no heirs to the throne, and the foreigners control the Steward. One wrong move will tip tensions into civil war.

Crown Prince Ihsan returns to find his home in turmoil, and the royal court so full of vipers it’s impossible to say which of them will strike first. Removing his father from the throne, one way or another, should be a simple matter. Staying alive and proving himself a worthy king, however, will be far more difficult.

Crown Princess Euren has spent the last five years in hiding so that she could not be used against her father or Ihsan. But she is the daughter of a soldier, never meant to wear a crown, never trained to fight battles where words are the weapon of choice. If she hopes to keep herself and her loves ones alive, she’ll have to learn fast.

Note: This story contains polyamory.

Emma Taylor’s Anastasia updates with Chapter 6

When the farm where she lives begins to die, Anastasia’s father casts out her mother and sister in order to save it. In revenge, her mother takes Anastasia as well. The three of them move to a strange town where the streets never stay still, and only the rats know way.

They are saved from a squalid life when her mother unexpectedly remarries, but Anastasia does not know quite what to make of her new stepsister, and before she can truly settle into yet another life her mother begins to act strangely and her sister grows deathly ill …

Sasha L. Miller’s The Heart of the Kingdom updates with Chapter 18

All Cenric wanted was a necklace to gift to his lady love, in the hopes it might persuade her to actually become his lady love. Instead of love, however, Cenric is informed of her engagement to someone else, wakes up to find his house burning down around him, and is dragged away by a man who might have saved him, but won’t say much about why one necklace has Cenric running away from someone willing to kill to get it back.

Aaron is a lonely, unloved boy when he first meets James. Their friendship seems like a dream come true—or perhaps just a dream, because no one else can see or hear James. Aaron stubbornly clings to his new friend, however, even when the friendship makes him an object of scorn and ridicule. No matter the years that pass, or the challenges they face, Aaron refuses to give up on his best friend—but life might just find a way to take James from him anyway.

Holy crap how is it nearly October already? I don’t know, but October means Halloween, Megan’s birthday and shenanigans, and The Heart of the Kingdom comes out as an ebook/paperback release!
The Heart of the Kingdom is a novel based (extremely loosely) on Snow White. I had a ton of fun writing it, and I adore both the MCs to bits. Cenric has the (mis)fortune to buy an ostensibly cursed bit of jewelry, and gets stuck with Hunter (a.k.a. Rylan), who is a Huntsman who doesn’t always think things through and is trying to get the necklace back to its owner. There’s curses, shenanigans, dwarves, elves with sharp, pointy teeth, and general ridiculousness in all the best ways. (Or so I like to think ;3)
This is Book 1 in the series of at least two, potentially three. Each book features a different couple, though, so you’re good to read this one and then never look at another of my books ever again. :3 Book 2, The Northern Wall, is about 90% done, but uh, other projects have shuffled it off the prime burner despite my sulking at it.
Uh, but enough of that. Celebration time! Have a giveaway. Two winners, both for any format(s) of The Heart of the Kingdom that you’d like. Visit the website/blog for details on how to enter.

PICK LT3’S FEATURED AUTHOR FOR NOVEMBER 2014

Hey all! We’re opening up our monthly Featured Author spotlight to nominations from you in LT3’s Goodreads group! Here’s how it’ll work:

  1. (1)  At the beginning of each month, we’ll post a new thread (THIS THREAD!) asking for nominations for the featured author for the following month. (So for example, this thread is to nominate the featured author for November.) Fine print:

    • You can’t pick an author already featured. We’ve featured Talya Andor (July), Cassandra Pierce (Aug), A.F. Henley (Sept), and Megan Derr (Oct).

    • You only get one pick (sorry!).

    • Probably goes without saying, but if you’re an LT3 author, you can’t nominate yourself. :3

  2. About two weeks into the month, we’ll close the thread and open a poll. (This month, get your nominations in by October 16.)

  3. You’ll have the rest of the month to vote, and on the first of the new month, you’ll get a coupon for 20% off all titles for the featured author you chose!

This is a brand new thing for us, so there might be some bumps until we get all the bits and pieces in order. If you’ve got any suggestions for how to run it more smoothly, let us know! I’ll also add we’re running this on a trial basis, so if we don’t get a lot of interest in crowd-sourcing the featured author picks, we’ll probably go back to randomizing it after a few months. :-)
