On Monday, June 9, I plan to release KIERAN, Tales of the Shareem Book 9 . I don't have preorder buttons, so if you want to receive an email blast when the book is out, join my newsletter here:

Kieran will be available on Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Apple, All romance ebooks, Smashwords, and in print (though print usually takes an extra week.)

I loved Kieran from the moment he walked into my head. He's a special guy. (And doesn't take any sh*t :-)).

Next time I post, the book will be out!! I'm getting excited.

I have two releases today--2 novellas previously released as a part of anthologies, now available on their own as ebooks for $1.99 each! (Note that these are still in print--see the final paragraph of this post).

Here are the many places you can find them:

Double Hexed 
(Wherein Janet, a Stormwalker, her dragon-shifter boyfriend Mick, and their friends are trapped in her hotel by a deadly curse.)


B and N:



Amazon UK:

Amazon AU:

Amazon CA:

And wherever ebooks are sold woldwide.

Perfect Mate
(Wherein Nell, a bear Shifter, meets her match in Cormac, a hunk of a grizzly Shifter, who just won't go away.)


B and N:



Amazon UK:

Amazon CA:

Amazon AU;

And wherever ebooks are sold worldwide.

Note that both of these are already available in Print! Find "Double Hexed" in the  Hexed  anthology (headlined by Ilona Andrews), and "Perfect Mate" in the  Unbound  anthology (headlined by Angela Knight and me).

I had many, many requests to have these released on their own--I was finally able to persuade my publisher to do it, so I hope you enjoy them!

Coming June 9!  Tales of the Shareem: Kieran  
This is Book 7 in the Shareem series--following Justin.

I don't have pre-orders set up yet, but stay tuned. I might be able to.

You haven't met Kieran in any of the books. He walked into my head and said he was the next Shareem. I said, OK. And you're hot.

The other Shareem already know him. He's big, he's bold, he's wonderful. He's paired with a heroine from Old Earth who's a bit different from the women Kieran has known. And the Shareem are getting closer to their freedom. A lot happens in this book!

After Kieran, I'm trying to get Eland and Jeanne's story, now a longer novella, into shape to re-issue as well.

I'll let you know about pre-orders.

Meanwhile, if you're a Stormwalker fan, don't forget that Double Hexed is out on May 20!

My publisher has agreed to pull out the Double Hexed novella (originally published in the Hexed anthology) and offer it as a standalone e-book. I'm thrilled! I love this story set in the Stormwalker world--one of my favorites of all the novellas I've written.

Janet, Mick, Coyote, and company are trapped by a hex in Janet's hotel, and many, many crazy things happen. The character of Emmett Smith, who plays a role in  Nightwalker  (and will in upcoming books), is introduced in this story.

Pre-order it here:

It will also be available on Kobo and other vendors when it's out.

Speaking of Stormwalker, I plan to release another episode in Janet's adventures this year! Shareem got first dibs, but Stormwalker will follow.

I had originally planned to call this novel Dreamwalker , but a number of books entitled Dreamwalker have recently come on the market, so I'm rethinking it. The top contender is Magicwalker , which isn't really a word, but it goes with the story.

More about that anon.

All the current Shareem novels now have a print edition. Find them via links below. I was motivated not only by the desire to make these available to print readers, but also in answer to people trying to sell used copies for $50 to $880. Crazy. A ripoff for you, and I don't see a dime of it either.

Here are the Shareem boys, in pretty new paperbacks:


Aiden & Ky
Aiden & Ky, Calder, and Braden haven't propagated to other booksellers yet, but they should soon.
I am about halfway through writing Tales of the Shareem: Kieran, a brand new guy (and he's lovable!), and the heroine who's strong enough to match him. More about that, plus a cover reveal in an upcoming post.
Also, I'm revising Eland which was originally a "quickie" short story. That will be out after Kieran. 
I am expanding and rewriting Eland into novella length (maybe longer, who knows!), so I'm thinking I'll change the title to Eland and Jeanne, so it's distinguished from the out-of-print, barely-there short story (we had word count restrictions when I wrote that one, so I could only do so much--now I get to tell the story I wanted to.)
More about both of these soon, and I'll let you know about pre-orders as well!

I've been a little quiet on the Allyson James front, because I've had so many things to do!! (Jennifer Ashley right now is taking up all my time). But I have a couple of announcements:

1. Tales of the Shareem: Rees  is available once again in print! Right now you can order directly from Amazon--I've chosen expanded distribution, so check in a couple of weeks at other online vendors or ask you favorite bookstore to order it.

ISBN: 978-1941229552

2. Double Hexed as standalone Ebook: The Stormwalker novella "Double Hexed", which I wrote for the Hexed anthology, is being re-released by itself as an ebook. This is the exact same story (no changes) from the anthology. Release date is May 20

Preorder from:



Apple iBooks/iTunes:

More Allyson James things really are in the works--only so many hours in the day!

I posted this on my Jennifer Ashley blog, but it equally goes to my Allyson James readers . . .

I wanted to take a moment to tell my readers THANK YOU for making this a great year. For enjoying the books; chatting to me here, on FB, email, Twitter, whathaveyou; and all around being fantastic.

As many of you know, I've been completely swamped on the writing front, both with writing and other things behind the scenes. I want to let everyone know that I read and appreciate every single email you write to me privately, every card and letter I get via snail mail, and every post or comment on social media.

I don't always have time right away to answer, but I try to answer every email or letter I can. Sometimes emails get lost in the morass of my inbox (after I've read them), but I do read everything myself; I don't filter my email through an assistant. I appreciate everyone who takes time to write me, and I hope I can answer all your questions.

I've finally had the chance this week (though I'm still editing and proofreading like crazy) to mail off some things people have been waiting for--look for those this coming week or early next.

My schedule is just as crazy going into 2014, but that's a good thing. More Shifters are coming out this spring, more Mackenzies are in the works, I'll be republishing the Immortals series as soon as I can (plan for January). Plus I'm going to get back to the Capt. Lacey series, and revisit the Shareem and the Stormwalker series. Whew. :-)

But even with all that, I couldn't do it without my readers. I tip a big glass of champagne to you all, and again say THANK YOU!!!!

I've been a little quiet on the Allyson James front, because I've been hugely busy writing books for my Jennifer Ashley and Ashley Gardner personas.

However, once I get those beaten into shape, I'm returning to Allyson James with more Shareem (the re-release of Eland very soon), and more Stormwalker.

I'm debating the name of the next Stormwalker book, but I think it will be Dreamwalker . (Thoughts?) The book visits more about Cassandra's abilities, the ununculous, Emmett Smith, and Gabrielle's powers. As well as catch up on where Janet and Mick are in their relationship.

I'm looking forward to it!

Hi all: I've been getting quite a lot of email regarding Tales of the Shareem: Eland. With good reason! So I should explain. (I'll be adding a note to my website too).

Eland was originally a short story released as a freebie at Ellora's Cave. The terms for a story like this was that it could be no more than a certain (small) word count, and the contract expired after a year.

So, once the contract expired and the story was pulled from all sites, I decided that the short length wasn't near enough to tell Eland and Jeanne's story.

Therefore, I'm rewriting it now (I'm writing many things now), to make it into a longer novella (maybe even a novel--I'll find out when I get deeper into it).

And it even has a pretty, new cover!

I hope to have Eland finished and out sometime this summer. I'll project a firmer date when I have the manuscript done.

You can subscribe to my email newsletter here to stay informed of new releases.

Thanks for the emails, and sorry for the confusion!

I'm a bit dismayed I didn't announce Braden's release here. Well he's out:

All Romance Ebooks:



Speaking of Shareem, Calder  is a bestseller at All Romance Ebooks! In the top 50. Cool.

I'm also running a sale on Nightwalker (Stormwalker 4) for 99 cents. So if you haven't taken a chance on that book, do get it before the SALE ENDS AT MIDNIGHT OF March 24.

Nightwalker will also be out as an audiobook, along with the rest of the Stormwalker series. See the page at Tantor Audio for release dates:

That's all the news that is the news at this moment for Allyson James. Yes, I will be continuing both series! I don't have a lot of time to devote to these books, as you might guess, but I want to do a few more in each series. I don't like to leave things hanging.

Take care.
