Throne of Blood: Chapter One

Just two months left until Throne of Blood‘s release! And since I don’t want to make you wait that long, I thought I could already start sharing the first chapters. Here is Chapter One, and Chapter Two will follow soon.

Please note:

  • This is the third book in the Nightfall series. If you’ve missed the previous books, it makes more sense to start with the Kingdom of Ashes free sample
  • The chapter hasn’t gone through final proofreading. Please forgive any typos
  • Photos are mine. They are not a part of the book, just a little bonus for people reading here 😊

Happy reading!

Throne of Blood Character Reveal: Almaz

And now it’s time to introduce a new Throne of Blood character. Meet Almaz:

Almaz - JPEG

She is the first albino character in the Nightfall series. She also happens to be the first amputee character we meet. Combining these two facts about her, you can already take a guess about her complicated backstory.

Character Reveal Schedule:

  • July 20th: Mizuki
  • July 23rd: Rada
  • July: 26th: Almaz
  • July 29th: Carmina
  • August 1st: Alfa
  • August 4th: Throne of Blood cover reveal!

Happy reading! 💖

Throne of Blood Character Reveal: Rada

It’s time for another Throne of Blood character reveal. Meet Rada!

Rada - JPEG

She is in the book for only a short while, but her character makes an impression. She is related to a certain mythological being. If you’ve read Men and Monsters carefully, you should be able to guess which one 🙂

Character Reveal Schedule:

  • July 20th: Mizuki
  • July 23rd: Rada
  • July: 26th: Almaz
  • July 29th: Carmina
  • August 1st: Alfa
  • August 4th: Throne of Blood cover reveal!

Free signed paperbacks for Berliners!

I recently shared that I extremely spontaneously decided to move to Denmark. And, as expected of a quick relocation, my last two days in Berlin were extremely hectic. Finishing packing and shipping stuff, selling and giving away furniture, repainting the flat, running around the city on different errands. But on top of all else, there was one more thing to take care of: I found out I still had four Kingdom of Ashes and one Men and Monsters paperbacks.

I had initially ordered all of them planning to run more Goodreads giveaways as I’ve done in the past. But then Goodreads changed the giveaway rules, and this was no longer possible. And so I stuffed them in a cupboard to wait for the time I find a way to run a giveaway or find interested bloggers, and I almost forgot about their existence until it was time to move.

But what was I going to do with the books? I couldn’t possibly take them with me; I didn’t have an extra molecule of space in my luggage. And there was no time to mail them around. And so, I came up with an idea: I would sign them and donate them to open phone booth libraries around the cityAnd so I spent half of a crazy day running around the city, dropping off books, but I hope it was worth it!

Read on to see how to get them in case you have trips to Berlin planned soon!

Where am I? Solve this riddle to win a SIGNED Men and Monsters paperback

Throne of Blood, Book 3 in the Nightfall series, is approaching completion, and I can already tell you a secret…

Chapter One, “Legend” will be the first chapter in the series from Vlad’s point of view. While we have seen his story in Men and Monsters, we hear it through Myra and through what he chooses to tell her. Now, for the first time, we will properly get inside his head.

I have two questions for you, and if you answer correctly, you’ll enter a lottery to win a Men and Monsters signed paperback!

  1. Where is Vlad in the opening chapter of Throne of Blood?
  2. What is he doing there?

How on earth should you know that, you ask. Simple! You just need to guess where I am:

me

Throne of Blood: One Chapter Left!

Hi everyone,

I’m happy to share that I have just one more chapter left to write, and the first draft of Throne of Blood, the third book in the Nightfall series, will be complete!

It’s the third to last chapter that’s still missing (the last two are complete) and it’s from the point of view of a baddie. I guess depending on how you view the vampire characters, a huge part of the book could be considered to be from the point of view of the bad guys. In the current version, out of 37 chapters, I have only 2 from humans’ points of view. All else is vampires though I think of some of them as good guys. Hopefully you will too!

I have to add a disclaimer: even if the first draft will probably be complete soon, it doesn’t mean that the book will be. I still need to do a lot of editing myself before I start sending it out to beta readers and editors. But the road to the end looks much clearer now. As I did with Men and Monsters, I’m planning to use my Goodreads “review” to give writing and publishing updates. It’s pretty empty right now, but I’ll soon start populating it with behind-the-scenes info and news.
