The new blurb


As I mentioned in the previous entry, I’ve written a new blurb for ‘At her boss’s command’. I already put it on Hannah’s webpages and the Crimson House Books’ main webpages, but here it is to you as well, as promised:

“Turn around, slowly,” she commanded him with her most assertive voice.
“Why? Are you armed?” The question was more amused than frightened to Emily's annoyance, and it was asked with a nicely cultured rich tenor unlike any criminal should have.
“Yes, I am.”

It is a battle of wills between Emily Parr and Conor Peters from their first encounter. But when one is the boss and the other his PA, the battle is never balanced. Emily's job depends on Conor and she wants to convince him she is worth employing, and Conor is not above finding out just how far she is willing to go to keep her job. Little by little, their power game moves to a different level where she realises that obeying his every order is exhilarating and he finds how having a strong woman at his command can banish the memory of a treacherous ex-wife to the point that his heart becomes involved.

But everything is not well in the firm Conor is in charge of. Someone has been embezzling its funds and the evidence points to Emily. Now he needs to find the real perpetrator or see the woman who has become essential to his wellbeing jailed. Emily, for her part, has to decide if she can give her heart to a man who doesn’t trust him.

And then the threatening notes start to arrive.


If you want to read more, there is a new excerpt for the book too. It’s still a work in progress, because I haven’t finished tinkering with it and my editor hasn’t even started with it yet, but I hope you will enjoy it nonetheless.

As for the Wolf’s Call, the current ranking is below top 100 again. Stay tuned.

My #worldcon75 experience

Here’s the long overdue report from my day at the WorldCon 75, my first ever time attending. The event was held on August 9-13 in my home country, Finland, so it was a once in a life-time chance to experience it with a minimum trouble. I originally thought to attend the entire five days, but life intervened in the form of work, and so I could only attend on Saturday. I tried to make the most of it by planning a full day.

I arrived at the conference centre about fifteen minutes after the doors opened at nine in the morning, and the queue was already at least fifty metres long. It caused me a few palpitations until I figured it was the line for people who hadn’t purchased their day passes in advance. I had, so I just walked past, trying not to look gleeful. Half an hour later I felt bad for all those people when it was announced that the day was sold out, which left most of them outside. The queue for pre-purchased passes was three persons long, the shortest line for me the entire day. I…

Reading recap: August

August was my worst reading month so far and I only managed to finish two books. I have no excuses other than that I was busy working. I did start two more books, but I didn’t manage to finish them in August. And even though I read eight books in July, I’m now two books behind the schedule in my reading challenge of fifty-five books. I’ll have to step up. As has been my habit throughout the year, one book was from my reading list and the other wasn’t.
First book was Ride the Storm by Karen Chance, the long-awaited next chapter in her Cassandra Palmer urban fantasy series of time-travelling Pythia and her entourage of vampires, demons and mages. One vampire and one mage in particular. As always, it was a wild romp through space and time – at times a bit too wild. The first part of the book was constant tumbling from crisis to battle and back with no breathers or plot development in between, as if the author was afraid that the reader will get bored if something earth-shattering isn’t co…

Reading recap: March

I had a good reading month last month. Everything I read was delightful and entertaining, on top of which they were good books too. Again, I didn’t quite stick to my reading list; two out of five books were outside it.
First up was A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab. It’s the second book in her Shades of Magic trilogy set in a world of parallel Londons that have different levels of magic and which can be travelled between by a special person with enough magic and right words. Grey London is in the Regency England of the ‘real’ world with little or no magic, Red London is abundant with magic, and White London is in permanent winter and constantly struggles to regain its magic by any means necessary. In the first book, Lila gets accidentally drawn from Grey to Red London by Kell who can travel between the worlds, and decides to stay. In this second book, she enters the stage as a pirate and ends up taking part in a tournament of magic. Most of the book is taken by the tournament, and…
