TAINTED BLOOD is released tomorrow!

Closer. Closer on my prettiness. Special nerd points to all those who got that particular MST3K reference. I salute you.

Holy shit, everyone, Tainted Blood will be released tomorrow! First of all — I’m 24 hours away from being the author of a trilogy, so consider that ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED. Secondly — you guys are 24 hours away from 306 pages filled with violence, nerd references, kitsune fabulousness, Finnish were-bears, and my continued efforts to make my vampires as fundamentally icky as possible.

To everyone who hit the preorder button at some point over the last few months, THANK YOU!!
To everyone planning to hit bookstores tomorrow to get their greedy hands on this book, THANK YOU!!
To everyone who has pestered their local librarian into buying a copy or ordering it through interlibrary loan, THANK YOU!!
To everyone who intends to illegally download a copy, seriously, man, you’re killing me here. Please report internet piracy to the publishers.

The publishers pay incredibly close attention to the first week of sales, both physical and e-book. It was the strong sales numbers on Iron Night that convinced the publisher to roll the dice and offer me a contract for the fourth book in the series. You guys, with your amazing support of my series, are the reason that when you finish the last page of Tainted Blood, you can know that another book in the American Vampire series will be on shelves in August 2015 — and it’s thanks to you.

A few fun things to fill those last hours before the book hits the shelves and the kindles:

A review of Tainted Blood, plus a giveaway of a signed copy from one of my favorite blogs, The Bibliosanctum!

A really fun interview that I did with Rob Bedford over at SFFWorld — if you’ve ever wondered why I decided to have Fort beaten up by Bruins fans back in the first book, the answer is here!

And, finally, I’ll be doing an AMA over at the Reddit r/Fantasy board on Thursday, so come over and ask me anything!

I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of Tainted Blood, and I’m so very excited that people are finally going to get a chance to read it. Thank you again!
