Your card will NOT be charged until the day of release (November 5th), when the book is delivered to you.
You can read the book description at the pre-order page links above.

STUFF YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW ABOUT PRE-ORDERING THIS TITLE:

Unleash the Moon, the 6th and final book in the Preternaturals Series is now available for Pre-order at Amazon and Kobo. (This title can EASILY be read out of order with little to no problem since it occurs 26 years into the future from the end of Forbidden.) Please note I’m including links for Amazon.com Kindle store and Amazon UK Kindle store only, but… all Amazon Kindle stores except India have pre-order functionality and should have it. Kobo is also a great store to buy from if you are an international reader and have epub. (Kobo lists many different reading devices you can read on for Kobo.)

There is no pre-order function on Barnes and Noble, so that’s why it isn’t there. At this time I’m not doing pre-order with Smashwords because I’m not ready to experiment with that yet. Possibly for the book under my other name, we’ll see.

IMPORTANT: the $2.99 introductory pre-order price will only run THROUGH the release date: November 5th. Unlike other titles, this is not a “soft release” date. This book WILL be available and sent to pre-orderers ON November 5th and will be available for regular purchase on that date as well. (on penalty of losing my pre-order button privileges at Amazon. So I basically can’t lay around on the emo couch worrying that it’s not good enough and I should read it 20 more times like that’s going to make a large difference.)

Grab it now so you don’t forget when it’s live… and remember you won’t be charged until release date. Lock it in! :)

Thank you for reading and supporting my work!

Thoughts on The Preternaturals Series Ending

October 20, 2014

Wow. So this morning I woke up and it really hit me that Unleash The Moon is the last book. It’s like having all your friends move away. I started Kept (the first novella in Blood Lust) in 2007. And here we are, seven years later. That’s a long time to spend with characters.

I think I’ve been a tiny bit in denial about it because I plan to continue writing in this world. I made a big sandbox to play in, and there are so many side trails I can go down and things I can explore. And given how “key” many of the heroes and heroines are from this series in this whole world I’ve created, there is a good chance some of them may occasionally make a cameo in the future, or at least get mentioned.

So that has kind of made it “a softer goodbye”, but dude, I’m a little sad.

Looking over the series, I feel like this last book gives things a sense of completeness, showing how all these couples came together (usually through a tie to somebody else), and how they ultimately all play a vital role in where we end up and where their world ends up (which is really an introduction into the dark paranormal serial I’ll be writing next.)

In a way I feel like the overarching series is about Anthony, though. (Even though Cain will always be my favorite.) Anthony appears in the very first scene in Blood Lust (in Kept), and he’s in the very last scene of Unleash the Moon. And he’s in every single book in a key plot way except Save My Soul. He often drives the plot, usually as the antagonist/villain, but very occasionally in a heroic or semi-heroic way.

Unleash the Moon focuses on the relationship between Anthony and Charlee’s daughter, Sydney, and Jane and Cole’s son, Noah. (One of the fun things about Unleash The Moon is that you get to see Anthony being an overprotective father. And he does parenthood about like you’d think he would… very bull in a china shop about it.)

This is the first title of mine that has a specific definite release date (at least for Amazon and Kobo), and not a soft release date like previous titles.

If you are interested in seeing where this series ends up (and if you are just jumping on, you should be able to read the 6th book out of order with no big troubles since the front story, the main plot of each book, is about a different couple), click here for more information and links for the pre-order.

Unleash The Moon is on $2.99 introductory pre-order sale (regular retail: $4.95). Sale will go only through November 5th. (Release day).

Blood Lust, the first book in The Preternaturals Series is currently free at Kobo, Amazon, and Google Play. So if you are new to my world and you aren’t sure whether or not it’s your thing… grab the first book free. (There seem to be a lot of books out there called Blood Lust, so remember it’s the Zoe Winters one.) :)

Thanks for reading!

(Actually, no… it’s been EIGHT YEARS since I started this series! I just remembered I wrote Save My Soul first for Nanowrimo in 2006. It was only when I was in the third novella in Blood Lust that I realized Cain was an integral part of this world and I’d already introduced him in Save My Soul… but… hadn’t published SMS yet. Blood Lust (Kept, Claimed, Mated) got pubbed first, so SMS became book 2, and then book 3 started tying both of them together further. Wow, I’m like an old dude telling war stories here. Don’t mind me.)

Unleash The Moon, Preternaturals Book Six: Title, Blurb, and Cover Art Reveal

October 7, 2014

I can now share more about the 6th book in the preternaturals series.

Title: Unleash the Moon

Release Date: Halloween 2014

Blurb:

… Can two souls trapped in separate cages ever find each other?

Twenty-six years have passed since the link between heaven and earth was severed and all hell broke loose. The fighting raged until the human magic users took over the cities, driving most of the preternaturals into hiding.

This is the world Sydney Burgess has grown up in, locked inside her father’s compound. As the daughter of a human mother and a vampire king, she has all the weaknesses of a vampire but none of their strengths. Anthony keeps her on a tight leash, ever-vigilant against the constant imagined threats to her safety. But all she wants is to break free and start a real life.

Noah Riley has lived in captivity for the past twenty years, so long he barely knows how to be a werewolf anymore. Even with a photographic memory, most of his past before the facility feels fuzzy at best. His strongest memories are of the little girl he protected during his childhood: Sydney. When he reaches his full power on his twenty-eighth birth moon, he’ll have a chance to break free to find her and finally reunite with his family.

But vampires and werewolves are mortal enemies. Even if Sydney is Noah’s true mate, the vampire king would kill him before he ever let a filthy werewolf near her, especially one of questionable sanity.

Big Update Time

September 24, 2014

Okay big update time:

I’m going to try to get Noah and Sydney’s book to the editing team today. Tomorrow I’m getting back into finishing up the first draft of Brian and Mina’s book (on the Kitty name). While I’m doing that… I am also going to be working on/planning a serial I’ve had in the back of my head for Zoe for awhile now.

I’m going to aim for 20k word episodes, and I’m looking at 3 “seasons” right now to get it told. It’s going to be a little different than my other Zoe stuff but in the same world. It’s going to be dark paranormal fantasy. Maybe some snark in there like per usual, but probably somewhat darker. There may be some sexual undercurrents and some psychological mindfuckery (like Kitty does mindfuckery) but it’s not going to be erotica. It’s not going to really be romance either. A romance will likely bloom. I don’t know yet if what happens will happen on or off camera.

I’m really really excited about this and to get started on it. I’m wanting to try to get the first season fully or at least several episodes in the can before I start releasing them so at least during a season I can have steady releases every two weeks. Price point will be $2.99 for each episode (which is part of why I’m making episode lengths 20k and not shorter.)

I can’t wait to unveil more about this. It will all occur in the future dystopian world you’ll be introduced to in Noah and Sydney’s book.

LAST CHANCE Forbidden Intro Sale

June 1, 2014

Now is your last chance to get Forbidden at the Introductory sale. It’s already back to normal price at Barnes and Noble and may be back to normal at Kobo (you can check!). Smashwords, the coupon code is still valid through June 4th. (See the post stickied at the top of the blog for the coupon code. It’s buried down in there with the buy links at the bottom of that post.)

Forbidden will soon be going to the regular retail price of $4.95 everywhere.

Tomorrow I’ll be getting back into Noah and Sydney’s book so I can finish that. This will be the final book in this particular series but NOT in the Pretverse world. (i.e. this world, some of these characters, etc. may show up in future books because everything under the Zoe Winters name happens in this same universe with the same set of rules etc.)

If you’ve read Forbidden, you’ll know who Noah and Sydney are. But they are babies right now. (literally). The final book in the Preternaturals Series occurs 26 years in the future.

Keep an eye on the status bar on your right to see word count updates for Noah and Sydney. Their book is yet to be titled.

Forbidden: Now Available

May 28, 2014

perf5.500x8.500.indd
Forbidden is now available (Finally!) Forbidden is the 5th book in the Preternaturals series. However, it can be read as a stand alone with very little trouble (i.e. if you are new to my world and this book sounds good to you… while everything has more depth if you’ve read it all in order, you do not HAVE to read it all in order. You can start here and go back and pick up the earlier books if you like this. Or you can start at the top. Whichever.)
