Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Karen Chance news and freebies!!!

I'm a HUGE fan of Karen Chance. She's one of my favorite authors period. I've been going through withdrawals without another Cassandra Palmer book for a year.. and I could never find out when book 5 will be released.
It's not great news, but it is a start! It's supposedly going to be out summer 2011. Due to health problems (at which I'm very sorry with Mrs Chance! I wish her the best.)
But there is a chance of it being out early, it's just so she will have enough time to meet the deadline.
Here's what she said:
Update: January 5, 2010

"I have an announcement to make, but when they saw what it was the minions refused to post it. They're off cowering in fear somewhere, leaving me no choice but to do it myself. Damn minions. Anyway, it feels strange to write 2010, doesn't it? That's a sci-fi sounding date right there. But 2010 it is and since I have been promising an update on the Cassie series for months now, I thought I should make some sort of statement. So for the record, this is what's going on. I do have a contract for Cassie Palmer #5 and Dory Basarab #3. I am working on the Cassie right now and expect to be finished shortly. However, because Death's Mistress had to be pushed back three months (due to my health problems at the time), my editor has decided to delay the publication of Cassie #5. She's chosen the summer of 2011, I suppose to make absolutely sure that there's no difficulty meeting the deadline this time. I am trying to get the date adjusted, but if it does remain fixed, I will do what I can to alleviate any withdrawal symptoms anyone may feel by putting some short stories with different character's POVs on the web site. Yes, they'll be free. Yes, this is a bribe not to lynch me. No, they won't be deleted scenes or crap like that, because most of my deleted stuff was deleted for a reason. They'll be the same quality I write for publication (whatever you may think that is) I'll just be "publishing" them here. So in the next couple of months, look for a short from John Pritkin's POV, then a few months later one from Mircea and later on another from Francoise. There may be more after that, depending on what my schedule allows, but those are the ones I have in mind right now. I hope you'll enjoy and, please, don't kill me. Remember, ghostly fingers don't type too well."

Which leads to even more great news that effects us Chance lovers now!!

We get to read free short stories of our favorite Cassandra and Dory Characters!
The first story is focused on Thomas called The Day Of The Dead. Out now!

Next is of my favorite character.. Pritkin<3! In a short story called Shadowland. Due out March 21st!

The next that is due out on June 30th, is of Kit Marlowe, in a short story called The Queens Witch.
