The latest free e-book by Lynn Viehl

I've added a couple of exclusive excerpts from Twilight Fall and Stay the Night to this one -- click on the cover art to go to the Scribd document page and read online or download in various formats.*

*Note 9/3/10: Since Scribd.com instituted an access fee scam to charge people for downloading e-books, including those I have provided for free for the last ten years, I have removed my free library from their site, and no longer use or recommend using their service. This e-book and all of my free reads may be read online or downloaded for free from Google Docs; go to my freebies and free reads page for the links. See my post about this scam here.

  5. oh...wow.

    Guys, did you all look at the book--namely..the dedication?????? I've gone starry-eyed and I think I'm almost struck speechless.

    Thank you!

    :-)

    Off to continue grinning like a fool

  8. It was fun reading the stories behind the novels - but, well, one word... NORBY? And the stories are good but they make much better novels. ;)

    I thought it was perfect, too. But Mr. Veiga, the photographer, did a great job with the original pic -- I just manipulated the hues. :)

    I'm sorry I've been a bit scarce lately -- I kept meaning to post a note on the blog. I'm finishing up production on one book and about to go into production on another, so I've been chained to the biz side of the keyboard.

    Onyx is my new imprint -- evidently they moved me up to Onyx because they have a larger list of titles or something -- and New American Library (NAL) is the division of Penguin Putnam over all my books. I probably should have written it to read "to be published" but it looked a little strange coming right after "to be released." :)

    It is all your fault, you witch. If I'd never read your e-book, I would never have considered dipping my toe into the e-pool. ;)

    They're called test-drive stories for a reason. :) Actually I was quite fond of Lucan's original name, as it's an anagram of Byron (don't ask me to tell THAT story, or I'll never shut up.) My editor hated it and tossed it out the window, and the only other name I considered after that was Lucan. Luckily, she could live with that one.

    And the stories are good but they make much better novels. ;)

    Agreed. Also I think writing the stories helped me get a lot of that standard vampire mythology I'd seen other authors use out of my system, so when I was ready to world-build the novel series I could try something else without feeling like I'd not given the classic stuff a proper chance.

  17. Loved reading the short stories and the excerpts. Thanks! Amazing how the name differences in the short stories made the characters feel a bit out of character or incognito when they were basically the same---only different. So a can Jack truly smell as sweet as a Michael as a rose? Probably but only after the brain relearns it. : )

  18. Hi, Lynn. Just found your blog, and wanted to let you know that I also just got to read & review Twilight Fall. I very much enjoyed it! Darn it though, if review books keep introducing me to new series and authors I like so much, I'm *never* going to catch up on my reading. =}

  19. Thank you so very much! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am right now. :)
