Happy news to share today: Hearts of Darkness was nominated for a GraveTells September 2012 Readers Choice Award! They had some lovely things to say about Hearts of Darkness in their review earlier this month:
Hearts of Darkness is a GraveTells Must-Read!….Hearts of Darkness was fantastic! Brady’s work is chock full of information as well as Norse and Babylonian mythology, but was so well written that it didn’t overwhelm or appear confusing and the writing was so detailed that the story ran like a hi-def movie in my head. The story is told from the point of view of the

Hearts of Darkness has been out for a month! Yay! You might have noticed a glaring lack of blog posts this summer, even when I had so much to share. The Summer of Awesome was…awesome…and nauseating…and busy. I wanted to blog about the month long trip to Europe and share photos, and the trip to RWA and Disneyland, and more posts on the book launch, but life has been put on semi-pause. I’m 17 weeks pregnant with my second child, and this one has been a lot harder than the first. Chasing after a two-year-old can be tiring enough without… Read more »

I’m happy to announce that Blackstone Audio has purchased the audio rights to Hearts of Fire and Hearts of Darkness, with Xe Sands narrating. I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with Ms Sands on the phone, and I absolutely love her voice. It’s going to be so much fun to listen to her narrate the books! Knowing she might (hopefully) narrate the rest of the series, I keep thinking about reading the sentences out loud as I’m working on Hearts of Chaos (Deadglass #3). I tweeted, “Am tempted to write things like, ‘The gaslight glinted off the gears and tempered… Read more »

Disneyland and the 2012 Romance Writers of America Conference are over. I had such a great week! Thanks to everyone who came out to make the event extra special.

Both times the books went like hot cakes. :) If you are in the Seattle area, I’d love to see you at the Hearts of Darkness Launch Party on August 10 (next friday) at 7 pm at Secret Garden Books in Ballard.… Read more »

Teresa Grasseschi, the artist who is drawing me pictures and a map for the Deadglass Trilogy, finished the three crests! They look Fabulous. I am so excited to see how she is bringing Hearts of Darkness to life in visual art. Today I will share with you the crest for the Drekar, the immortal soul-sucking dragon shifters who live in the Norse neighborhood of Ballard and plot to unleash the Gates to the Land of the Dead. The illustration is of Sven Norgard, the Drekar Regent, in dragon form. Enjoy! These images belong to Kira Brady, they may not be… Read more »
