Bitter Suites: TBR July 13

Bitter Suites, my newest book about a hotel that specializes in recreational suicide experiences, will be released at Crypticon Kansas City Friday, July 13. I have been working on this project for the last two years and am so excited to share my best work yet.

And, speaking of sharing, here is a sneak peek at one of the illustrations, created by Kyra Starr. This is Azreal, usually seen working as the hotel’s front counter girl. She takes appointments, processes guests and runs the day-to-day affairs of the hotel.

Few know that she not only owns the Bitter Suites, but she is also responsible for the technology that makes renewable death possible. She likes to keep a low profile while keeping a very close eye on her affairs. The front counter is the perfect place to see all without being noticed.

Look for more announcements about Bitter Suites soon as we wrap up the last of the details.
