Ta Da! Indigo Moon now available.

Well, it’s here. And about time, too. I just received my authors copies of Indigo Moon, all lovely and shiny with that new book paper smell people not enamoured of ebooks are always going on about. For those of you who plan to read it I can only hope you enjoy. Either way tell me. I have a fourth somewhere in the pipeline and it would be nice to know what way you’d like it to go?

Take care, Gill x

I'm glad to here #3 is available and #4 is in the pipeline as I greatly enjoyed the first two in the series.

Hi Gill! For the fourth novel I would love if you could tell marie and connie's story: how they met, feel in love, who is the father of Leone and Jori, among other things. Thanks for your hard work, I love all your books, but the garouls are my favorite!

Not much to say really... said...

The fourth has already been decided with the publisher, but one day I promise to get round to Connie and Marie's story - I'll need to bone up on the seventies, though. :)

I recently reread Goldenseal to get ready for Indigo Moon, sorry if this is a stupid question, but if Marie and Connie were partners for decades why did they have separate cabins? Also a request for book #4, if it could have the same comical, light, soap opera-y romantic tone as Ambereye please. I haven't read Indigo Moon yet, but I have ordered it. Between Goldenseal and Ambereye, I loved both, but I liked the tone or feel of Ambereye better. Also maybe for book #4, the human partner/ girlfriend of one of the Garouls who just discovered her partner is a werewolf asks to be wolven because I can't think of any bigger gesture or show of commitment and love than becoming part of the clan in wolven form.

I can't wait to read this, I really loved the first two. Thank you for giving such great entertainment.

@SCB...I hope Indigo lives up to your expectations. As usual this one has a slightly different curve to it from the last 2, but there are plenty of familiar faces to keep you in touch with the core chars. :)

Not much to say really... said...

@Anne...you don't have to thank me, Anne. We're in this together. Seems we like the same stuff. I write this way because it entertains me to do so, the bonus is you like it too. So thank you!

Not much to say really... said...

@Anonymous 2...like Anon 1 before you, you'd like more of Connie and Marie. Well that has always been on my list. Unfortunately Luc's story needs resolution ( and she's a growler, sort of hard to ignore :)).
C&Ms tale will be retro and I need time to mull over the setting. But I promise I will do it for you.
Oh, BTW, they live separately because Connie is an artist, she is creative and sensitive and needs plenty her own space. I think Marie and her tribe just overwhelm her sometimes and she needs a place that is all her own. Remember her studio is at her cabin, too, and it's set far away from the main compound. Hope this makes sense, but it's the way I saw it. Connie always wanted/needed to be slightly apart, but Virgil ruined that for her.

I'm Anonymous 2 and sorry I'm not trying to be rude, but I was only asking about Marie and Connie because of separate cabin thing which you answered perfectly. I thought Marie and Connie's story was fully told in Goldenseal. So I think there's really no need for their own book, but maybe a short story or the fifth or sixth in the series? I would love to read Marie and Connie's story, but its not on the top of my request list of the Garoul series. Like I said for book #4 or future books in the Garoul series, I’d like the same tone as Ambereye (fun, light, comical, a hairy soap opera-y feel). Also maybe a situation where a new mate to one of the Garouls asks to become a lycanthrope because I can’t think of any bigger show of commitment and love than that kind of life changing change and want to become part of her family/clan. In Goldenseal and Ambereye, we learn that there is a ritual for those who choose to become wolven and that Patrice chose to become part of the family in that way. Also who's Luc?, if she is one of the main characters in Indigo Moon I can't wait to read about her. I love the Garoul series. Thank you for this fantastic series of stories. Please keep them coming. Howl

@Anon2. Ah - with ya, sorry, sometimes I'm slow on the uptake :)
Luc is in Indigo Moon and she moves on into the new book Silver Collar (see the way I start each title with a colour - I thought that was smart but now it's turned into a burden, not clever after all) BUT, as I have only started the draft I promise you there will be a human lover who becomes wolven...just for you...to stop you howling... :)

Julia said...

Hey Gill!! I just finished reading Indigo Moon and I loved!!My only complaint is that the book is too short, I read it in one day (I couldn't stop)!! When silver collar will be released??

Not much to say really... said...

@Julia. Too short! It took me ages to do...ages!! Glad you liked it though, and thanks for dropping a line to let me know.
I think Silver Collar will be pencilled in for early-mid 2012. I have another non Garoul book out this year. Cool Side of the Pillow is a light hearted romance/urban fantasy type of thingy. In fact I think Amazon.com already have it listed ( no cover pic though :( )
So - if its wolfies you want then you have to wait, but you can get a quick fix in August if you want some romcom.
Thanks.

I just stumbled upon your series and now I'm hooked. I wanted to know if Indigo Moon would be available for the nook. Unfortunately I live in a house were certain books would be deemed inappropriate. It'd be a lot easier to just download it, instead of hiding it with my other hidden treasures lol.

Not much to say really... said...

Glad you like the series. It happens I am extremely nookable.
The BSB shop

bookshop@boldstrokesbooks.com

sells ebooks in any format you want and the staff are very helpful if you need advice.
I hope life becomes more 'appropriate' for you in time :)

Kris said...

I just finished Indigo Moon and I loved it very much! *applauds*
I found out about the Garoul series not too long ago because I was looking for some great werewolf or lesbian books. The fact that it combines both is super fantastic! Now I'm just gonna have to patiently wait for Silver Collar.
Thank you for these great reads!

Jenny said...

Hi thank you for the series. I have really enjoyed them and are my favourites among all the werewolf books around at the moment. Indigo moon was great. Although My favourite characters are still jolie and hope, jolie is such a loveable goof.
I can't wait for the next one!

Anne said...

Hi, just wanted to let you know loved Indigo Moon, great characters and plot... so glad we like the same stuff... keep writing :D

Not much to say really... said...

@Kris. So glad you like the series. Sometimes it takes a while to settle into a run of stories - esp as I like to try and tell each one slightly differently. But then it's like any family, everyone in it is a different character so why shouldn't their stories be different too.

Not much to say really... said...

@ Jenny. Hope and Jolie were so easy to write. But then I was in the mood for a romcom and they just formed themselves. Amy and Leone have some funny scenes too, esp the snake in the bed scene. I suspect the general angst of their romance overshadows the comic relief. Jolie and Hope were almost slapstick from the get go, so they are more memorable for being fun, IMO.

Not much to say really... said...

Hey Anne. Are you the same Anne from 4th Feb comment? Glad the book lived up to expectations. I'm glad someone out there shares my soh and dubious taste :)Tnx.

Dear Gill,
I loved your books. I'm hook with wolfie stories now. Can't wait for the 4th one. Please make it earlier and maybe we will have it for Xmas!!

Mike H said...

I really enjoyed all 3 Garoul books. I have a 60 minute train commute everyday to and from work so I read a lot. I'm on my fourth reading of Ambereye now.

Since others have made their requests, here's mine:

A short story showing Jolie's reaction to finding out what happened to Hope when she was away. While I think her overreaction and over compensation would both be funny and romantic, it would also be cathartic (sp? my psych classes were many years ago) for those of us who have experienced the feelings of inadequecey.

Not much to say really... said...

Hi Mike, some good ideas there. The trouble with Jolie is she's a scene stealer. She'd steal a scene quicker than a pork chop. I'd have to use her sparingly in book 4 to give the others a chance - but your point has been noted. Thanks :)

Not much to say really... said...

@Anon. Glad you like the Garoul books. Unfortunately the BSB schedule is full, so no amount of fast writing will bump me up the queue. :)
However, I do have another ghost type romance coming out in ebook this August. Maybe 'Cool Side of the Pillow' will help tide you over until 2012?? :)

Mike H said...

I'm glad my suggestion was well received. Perhaps to avoid the scene stealing issue you mentioned, maybe rather than depicting her over the top antics, instead we hear about them second hand from Andre or Hope. And since people tend to exaggerate, it would allow you to come up with some truly outlanding things because the reader won't be quite sure if the person is telling the truth or exaggerating for effect.

Not much to say really... said...

'Truly outstanding things?' Not much pressure there, Mike :).

I like your second suggestion too. I'm starting SC soon and will keep them in mind. cheers.

Hi Gill, you can call me AnonToo! I ran across Golenseal late last summer and just fell in LOVE with the Garoul series. My favorite couple is Jolie and Hope; I haven't laughed so much while reading a book in a very long time. I would really like to see you take either Jolie & Hope or Amy and Leone to the next step - having a 'little cub or cubbies'!
I hope that Silver Collar has at least a hint of lightness about it because by the end of Indigo Moon, I was ready to go out and beat up someone with a rolled up newspaper and then give them a little hug afterwards. I had a lot mixed emotions regarding that book - I really loved it, but it made me want MORE.

Eliza said...

Hi Gill really loving this series, definitely one of the best Lesbian Fantasy series out right now IMO. Cant wait for the next instalment...keep up the good work ;)

Not much to say really... said...

HI Eliza, thanks for the support. I am currently working on the 4th and hopefully it will be out early-mid next year, though I am still uncertain of the BSB schedule for 2012.
I used to know a wee Scottish cat called Eliza. Lovely name :)
