Exciting news: the audiobook of Hearts of Darkness released yesterday! You can now buy the mp3 CD from Amazon and Blackstone Audio and the mp3 download from Audible.

Who is the narrator? I can answer this one! The fabulous Xe Sands, who narrated Jacquelyn Frank’s Nightwalker books and is also local to Seattle.

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

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 »

Frauke Spanuth of Croco Designs has designed an AWESOME new website for me. See the pretty? See the gaslights and grunge and raven? She is a miracle worker. I LOVE IT. I fully admit I have particular tastes but a difficulty expressing what I want. It’s like she reached into my head and plucked the design out of my deepest imaginings, and it’s perfect. I’ll be adding some content over the next week, but if there is anything you’d like to see, please let me know. Legend for the Deadglass Map by Teresa Grasseschi I’m also incredibly excited that Teresa… Read more »

Yesterday was the release day of Hearts of Fire, my very first story. This Romeo & Juliet novella is a prequel to the Deadglass Trilogy (but you don’t have to read it first). Available for Amazon kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook for a buck. To celebrate, here’s an excerpt from the beginning of Hearts of Fire. It’s set a century and a quarter before the events of Hearts of Darkness (book 1).
