It’s a day of killer Sin du Jour content and announcements; covers revealed, giveaways offered, reviews out. For me, however, it holds a fine edge of sadness. This week I’m finishing rewrites on Taste of Wrath, the last Sin du Jour novella. When I’m done all we’ll have left is copyediting and after that, for all intents and purposes, my work writing the story of Bronko, Lena, Ritter, and the rest of the Sin du Jour staff and their weird, funny, tragic, f’ed up world of wondrous food and terrible monsters will be over.
The penultimate book in the Sin du Jour series, Gluttony Bay, drops on November 7th. The series will finally conclude in April of next year when book seven, Taste of Wrath, wraps up the story I began writing in 2014.
The folks behind the Barnes & Noble SFF Blog have been on my side and the side of Sin du Jour since the release of the first book. It’s utterly fitting they’re the ones to exclusively reveal the cover of the very final book in the series!
Can you dig it????
It all comes down to this, folks. Once again, and for the last time, Irene Gallo and Peter Lutjen have knocked it out of the fucking park with this final cover design. That cover says it all. Wine, cheese, and war. What more can you ask from a series finale?
Taste of Wrath is available to pre-order right now in paperback and ebook form. I make more money if you buy the paperback, since so many people ask. But read in your preferred format, please. I’ll be fine.
To coincide with this final epic cover reveal, Tor.com Publishing is doing an exclusive and excellent giveaway through the Tor.com newsletter. If you subscribe you’ll be able to get the first book in the Sin du Jour series, Envy of Angels, absolutely free. It’s free to subscribe, too. The offer is limited, so I’d get a move on if you want in. This is the perfect opportunity for folks new to the series to check it out. Click here to subscribe.
In other news, Gluttony Bay has received four stars and a killer review from RT Book Reviews. I think it’s my personal favorite book in the series. I hope if you haven’t yet pre-ordered it you will. I’m working with the marketing folks at Tor.com Publishing to set up some exciting events around Gluttony Bay’s launch, so stay tuned to my Twitter for all the news on that.
So, yeah. All in all an exciting day if you’re a Sin du Jour reader, or if you’re me, which I am, so it’s been an exciting day. While I remain a little maudlin about this ride coming to an end, I’m grateful to those of you who’ve taken it with me, and dug the journey.
We’re not there yet. I promise you a few more dips and jumps before we’re through.
