A New Home for THE VEIL and another RAVE!

Best news first -- I just signed a contract with Cobblestone Press for a re-release of THE VEIL! It's tentatively scheduled for October, as part of Cobblestone's Octoberfest Celebration. At their request, I did write a closed ending for the new version, but fear not! The second book's plotline has barely been changed by the new ending of THE VEIL. So those of you who read the original version will still get the same conclusion as you would have in the original version of OTHERWORLD.

You might want to check out the steamy new ending of THE VEIL anyway, just for fun. :)

For those of you who haven't yet purchased the original and soon-to-be collector's edition of THE VEIL, it will be available until June 30th. Don't miss it!


Another great review for THE VEIL! Wateena from CoffeeTime Romance gives it FOUR COFFEE CUPS!

"WOW, this paranormal has it all. Vampire’s, werewolves, mages, and more. A fight for good against evil is what this tale is all about. Exceptionally written, with fascinating characters, this story starts your head spinning from the start. Powerful story line with fast paced action keeps you turning the pages, as the romance and sensual love scenes keep things hot."

Sad news from Inara Press, but a GREAT review!

I just learned my first hard lesson about the publishing industry. The owner of Inara Press has decided to close her doors and releasing us all from our contracts effective July 1. Here is the announcement from their website:

Thursday, June 15th, 2006:

We are saddened to announce that Inara Press is closing its doors at the end of June. We will not be releasing any more titles from this point forward. Please feel free to make any final selections from our current catalog. We encourage you to please download any of the products you purchase to your computer by opening the file from your bookshelf and using the File > Save As feature. On July 1st, 2006 our site will be closed and all accounts and bookshelves will be deleted.

Seron Serials will continue to be released through the end of June. At that time, a complete copy of the full season will be available for download for all serial subscribers.

We appreciate the support our readers, authors and staff have shown over the last few months. Much love and thanks.

The good news is, I believe I have already found a new home for THE VEIL. I can't reveal anything concrete yet, as we are still in negotiations, but it looks good! The one thing I will say is -- I have REWRITTEN the ending. The new release of THE VEIL will be a VERY different book -- making the original a rare collector's edition! Don't miss an opportunity to own both!

If you're interested in reading THE VEIL in its original form, make sure to purchase it NOW. Inara will be releasing all the chapters before they close at the end of June, so at least you won't have to wait the full 12 weeks. So please, if you were waiting to purchase until all the chapters were released, NOW may be your last chance. Don't miss it!


And don't forget, SWORD OF REGRET is still available from FREYA'S BOWER!




"Readers of the genre will be enthralled by Ms. Fowler’s stunning foray into the paranormal and will not want this series to end any time soon."

A rave for an article! :)

"Of course, the Spike/Buffy relationship was not without its controversy, and Heather Fowler's "Messages About Sex and Violence in the Buffy/Spike Relationship on Buffy the Vampire Slayer" examines that controversy brilliantly. This is cultural studies writing at its best!"

Don't miss Timothy Sexton's Article about new AC Content producers - Kiddie Porn, the Harlem Renaissance, the NRA and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or his other excellent articles!

Check out an excerpt:

SWORD OF REGRET is not suitable for those under 18! Which means it's extra steamy and tasty for those of age. *G*
