Sacred Scars




Just got the the ARCS and am so pleased with the cover. Also the size. It's 200 pages longer than Skin Hunger.

A /SF/F Editor/ tribal elder called me to tell me I am going to need four books, not three. We'll just see, Charles...
It looks good. Weighty. I love the smell of new books. I love this job. Sacred Scars will be released in August.


You can read an excerpt here: http://www.ipulpfiction.com/
It's free, of course. You have to sign up for an account, (free, and quick!) choose my book, click BUY (for free) Whooosh...it goes to your library page, click the cover and five pages of excerpts--some from each story, come up.

Ipulp is growing fast. Keith Shaw wants to make downloadable stories as easy and available as downloadable music.
((He is looking for writers/content, too!))

The cover is just amazing--I loved the first one as well, which I will have to grab from the library when I return from my trip. Looking forward to it!

Longer is better, in my opinion, especially if you love the story and the characters - which I do!! Yay! I can't wait!!

Oh, WOW. That looks gorgeous. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy!! It really looks brilliant.

David Ho is the artist for the trilogy and yes, isn't he amazing. Also very nice! The interior art is by Sheila Rayyan, a lovely person whose husband did the illustrations for The Unicorn's Secret.

Oh, I love the cover. Very unique :)

I was already looking forward to Sacred scars, and the preview got me even more keen to read it. Any idea of the Australian release date?

Janelle said...

Kathleen, What a great idea to include a section of Sacred Scars on ipulpfiction! A perfect way to advertise the book! Brilliant!

kathleen duey said...

Jonathan,

Release in Australia is August fourth. I hope you like it.

Oooooh! I CANNOT WAIT to read Sacred Scars!!!

kathleen duey said...

Dragonfly,

I hope you like it...the third one is just emerging out of the mist for me now. I have hundreds of voice-notes, a stack of written jumbles and piles and files on the research topics. A lot of sociology goes into these.

In about a week I will disappear (except for SCBWI LA) until Fall.

I covet! In fact, I am in a coven of cover coveters! Beautiful art, and I am hopping with ants while I wait. And that download is a wonderful idea...

Best to you, and I am so glad I'll get to dance with you at the August conference!

Ummm... Could you possibly tell me when Sacred Scars will be released in Australia, if it hasn't been already? I absolutely adored Skin Hunger and have been hanging out for the sequel.

Tegs

kathleen duey said...

Tegs, it went on sale there August 4th....so you should be able to find it now. I've never been to AU. Must correct that one day soon...

jonathan said...

Simon & Schuster AU have it listed as coming out September 1

kathleen duey said...

I asked my editor to find out and she...apprently didn't. THANKS Jonathan, for setting it right!!

kathleen duey said...

Apparently.

I meant apparently.

Anonymous said...

When is this third book coming out???? I'm so keen to read it?

kathleen duey said...



Thanks for liking my books!

The third book is in production now. I will have revisions to do, copy edits to respond to, the cover will be drawn, the book designed....etc...I hope it can be early 2014, but can't be sure. I am making a list of people who want to be notified when I know the release date.

To get on the list---Just email me at kathleen duey at earthlink dot net
