TATTER - final

Crusader Non Grata

2016-319-3d-render-book-transparent-background-book-7It’s the beginning of the end, and the story of the Urban Dragon is starting to draw to a close. That’s right: Crusader Non Grata marks the last arc of the series.

When we last saw our heroes, Arkay finally accepted her place as leader of the Hoarde, with all the restrictions and responsibilities that entails. But while she’s busy trying to do right by the monsters who depend on her, other people are getting left behind.

Still reeling from the trauma and manipulations he faced at the hands of the Contessa, Meph has decided that all dragons need to go, and he intends to start with Arkay and her followers. His old cohorts are happy to use him as a wild card– and then dispose of him the moment he fills his purpose.

There’s only one person left on Meph’s side, and that’s Arkay. But her new position is a balancing act of public relations and politics, and reaching out to him might just bring the whole thing crashing down.

Crusader Non Grata is available now on Amazon and your favorite online booksellers.

Now Available: Forest of the Damned

2016-318-3d-render-book-transparent-background-book-5It’s time for the next chapter of Urban Dragon: Forest of the Damned.

When we last left Arkay, she teamed up with the ex-monster hunter Mephistopheles to rescue Rosario from the clutches of the Order. But Rosario isn’t out of danger yet. When modern medicine fails her, Arkay makes a dangerous gamble.

There’s a monster known for bringing people back from the brink of death: the mysterious ThreeClaw. Arkay’s not afraid of a fight, monstrous or otherwise. But there’s one problem: first she’ll have to cross the Forest of the Damned.

You can find Forest of the Damned at Amazon or at these fine online retailers.

News: Book 5 Preorder

Due to a technical flub* on my part, Forest of the Damned will not be available for preorder on Amazon.com.

(*That technical flub being that I accidentally released right at the beginning of August while I was trying to set things up. Amazon, it seems, does not forgive flubs lightly.)

I’ll be making it available for purchase on Midnight (that is, 12:01) on October 29th on Amazon. Or, if you’d prefer to pre-order and get that out of the way early, you can do so through one of the vendors you’ll find here.

 

Potnia Theron and Paperbacks

 

FirPageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00032]st up, the first official paperback collection of Urban Dragon is available starting today. You can find it on Amazon, or you can order it through your favorite local bookstore.

Volume 1 contains the first three books in the series: Mark of the Dragon, Shadow and Steel, and Dance with the Devil.

But that’s not all!

We’re also releasing the fourth story in the Urban Dragon series: Potnia Theron.

When we last saw our heroes, things got out of hand. When they were together, Rosario and Arkay have fought demons and won, but everything has changed. Now Rosario’s in the hospital and Arkay has to grapple with demons of a more metaphorical sort– in short, she’s completely lost, and at the worst possible time.2016-318-ebook-jennifer-jw-troemner-book-4

So far, they’ve been able to scrape by because an unseen force has been covering up signs of the supernatural, but that force is done standing idly by while a dragon wreaks havoc on the mundane world.

Potnia Theron is available on Amazon, and for a limited time at your favorite online booksellers.

Improve what works; ditch what doesn’t

For those who don’t know, the Urban Dragon was originally written with the intention of being exclusive to the Kindle Unlimited program (thus the short, serialized format).

According to the tin, KU is supposed to work like Netflix for books: you pay for a subscription and then you’re free to read as many books as you want. Authors aren’t paid by book, but by the number of pages read. The big catch? The book has to be Amazon exclusive.

Once the job of actually publishing fell on me, I thought I’d make it more inclusive by extending my spheres to other digital storefronts, like B&N, Kobo, iTunes, etc. But that hasn’t panned out. To date, around 95% of my sales have been through Amazon, so it no longer makes sense to keep publishing the individual stories through all those channels.

If you’re depending on those channels for your Urban Dragon fix, have no fear: I’ll still be publishing the compilation volumes through iTunes, Kobo, Scribd, et al. You’ll also be able to request the print volumes at your favorite brick-and-mortar bookstore starting October 15th.

Now available: Dance with the Devil

2016-317-3d-render-book-transparent-background-book-3It’s been two weeks, so it’s time to return to Rosario and Arkay in their next adventure: Dance with the Devil.

For the uninitiated, Urban Dragon is a serial that’s being released every two weeks until Christmas. When we last saw our heroes, they went head to head with a demon that had been terrorizing a deaf priest in an abandoned factory near Indianapolis. They were assisted by Adam Smith, a young monster hunter who belongs to the Order of Saint Michael of the Sun.

Adam’s help doesn’t just come in the form of Latin chanting and large-caliber bullets. After their ordeal, he helped Rosario get medical treatment, and the Order has more information about the supernatural than Rosario could ever have hoped for– and some much-needed moral support as well.

But Rosario isn’t the only one making new friends. Arkay’s found a new job at a local strip club, and she loves the attention… until one of her coworkers catches the eye of an up-and-coming drug lord.

Dance with the Devil is available now on Amazon and all your favorite online booksellers.

 

Introducing Shadow and Steel

The time has come for the second book in the Urban Dragon series: Shadow and Steel

A refresher for the newbies: Urban Dragon is being released as a serial, with a new book coming out every two weeks. Last time we debuted with Mark of 2016-317 3d render book transparent background, Book 2the Dragon, where Rosario and Arkay ran for their lives to escape a deranged necromancer and his army of the undead, and barely escaped Indianapolis with their lives.

But the ones they left behind weren’t so lucky. There’s a new supernatural creature stalking the streets, and police won’t listen to reports of malevolent shadows preying on the homeless.

Luckily, the mayor of the Valley homeless camp knows someone who can help. And this time, she has his blessing to go kick some ass.

Shadow and Steel is available now on Amazon and all your favorite online booksellers.
