That something new is brewing in the Nightshade world. I'm happy to confirm that it's true.

Two new projects are afoot.

YA fans can expect three new novels that follow the events of BLOODROSE, the first book, SNAKEROOT, will be in stores December 10 of this year!


For fans of adult romance and erotica, I'm stepping into the dark waters of the Forbidden Nightshade series. These new novels tell steamy tales of forbidden romance and dark magic (note to younger fans: these are R-rated books, be aware of contented intended for mature readers.)

The first Forbidden Nightshade novel, CAPTIVE, will be in stores October 22. I'm running a contest now to spread the word about this new series - because it is intended for a different audience than my YA books I'm writing CAPTIVE and its companions under the name A.D. Robertson. If you'd like to keep up to date on news about the erotic romance series you can find the latest news on Twitter @adrwrites and on the A.D. Robertson Facebook page.

Both books are already available for pre-order (hint ;) )

I can't wait to share these new adventures on the page with you!

Hearing from readers is one of the best parts of being an author and the excitement of fans at my events is the biggest compliment I ever get. So I thought it would be fun to share today's fangirl moment of my own.

I love television shows that feature smart writing and compelling characters. I've long said that Joss Whedon taught me to how to write dialogue and pace plots. Though not a Joss project (though it often felt like one), Veronica Mars is an all-time favorite show of mine. The characters and storyline are amazing; the writing brilliant.



So today when Twitter exploded with the news of a Kickstarter-funded Veronica Mars movie, I was over the moon. So much so that I funded the project and if it meets its goal, I will be an extra in the film. This is officially the most I've ever indulged in fandom, but Veronica Mars on the big screen is well worth it. Hopefully this summer I'll have 'my day on the movie set' stories to share!

RIFT hits stores today! Huzzah!

I'm so excited for readers to meet new characters, share their adventures, and learn more about the Nightshade world.

Some highlights about the release:

1) You can read RIFT even if you haven't read the Nightshade series yet. This is a new story and while it's set in the same world as Nightshade it stands alone as a novel. For fans of the Nightshade trilogy, RIFT will answer many questions about how the Witches War began.

2) Special edition: Wal-Mart is offering an exclusive edition of RIFT that includes a short story "Restless Blood" about what Logan Bane is up to following the events of BLOODROSE.

3) Speaking of BLOODROSE - it's out in paperback today!

4) Launch party! Tonight at 6 p.m. I'll be signing RIFT at Books of Wonder.

5) Want signed books but can't make the party? Books of Wonder is offering specials on your orders of signed Nightshade books. Contact them and they'll get signed copies to you!

6) Web site updates: BLOODROSE and RIFT soundtracks are now posted on the Sound Scripts tab of my web site, www.andreacremer.com,  as well as the RISE playlist.

Thank you so much for continuing to share the joy of reading and writing with me! Hope to see you at a tour stop soon![image error]

On August 7 RIFT will be in stores! I can't wait for readers to dive into this new tale. In anticipation of the book's release here are some answers to frequent questions I've been getting about the book:

What is RIFT about?

RIFT reveals the origins of the Witches War - the conflict in which Calla and her pack are fighting in the Nightshade trilogy. RIFT follows the story of Ember Morrow, a sixteen-year-old girl who is drawn into the dangerous world of the secret order known as Conatus.

Will the characters from Nightshade appear in RIFT? 

The Witches War began in 15th century in Europe, so unless Calla happens upon a time machine while running through the Colorado wilderness (spoiler: she doesn't) RIFT features a new cast of characters with one exception - and I don't want to give away who that is!

Do I have to read the Nightshade trilogy to understand or enjoy RIFT? 

Not at all, though I hope you will check out the original Nightshade books! RIFT functions as a stand-alone novel that complements, but doesn't rely on the events of Nightshade. For those readers who are already fans of Nightshade, RIFT and RISE (January 2013) will answer many questions about the war, magic, and history of Calla's world. Check out this review from Mundie Moms to see why they think RIFT hits the mark!


Can I get my copy of RIFT (and the other Nightshade books) signed?

The book launch for RIFT will be at Books of Wonder and they're offering some awesome deals on pre-ordered signed books. Check out their site to learn how to get your own signed copies!!! [image error]
