A note on the All Romance eBooks closure

All Romance eBooks announced yesterday that they are closing abruptly on December 31 and will not be paying authors for sales after 12/27, so I decided to pull my self-published titles from the site. Here’s what that may mean for you:

Lead Us Not is a free short that was available for download on ARe, but also here on the website. If you follow the link, you can find the story for download in a few different formats.

Across the East River Bridge is still available for purchase from Amazon, B&N, Kobo, and iBooks. If you purchased the book from ARe and were unable to download it before I pulled it, send me proof of purchase (kate (at) katemcmurray (dot) com) and I’ll send you the book.

There Has to Be a Reason (which will be published on January 9) went up for preorder on ARe last week. If you preordered, Dreamspinner will honor your preorder; forward your receipt to contact (at) dreamspinner (dot) com.

I think that covers it. If you have any questions, shoot me an email or leave a comment and I’ll try to answer them.

Cover Reveal: Across the East River Bridge, 2nd Edition

I am super excited to reveal the cover for the second edition of Across the East River Bridge!

Across the East River Bridge

Winner of the 2012 Rainbow Award for Best Gay Paranormal

When historian Christopher Finnegan walks into a new museum in Brooklyn, he’s chagrined to learn its curator is his old academic rival, Troy Rafferty. Worse, Troy is convinced the museum is haunted and wants Finn’s help learning more about the ghosts. Finn and Troy have never gotten along and Finn wants to run screaming, but then Troy offers him an intriguing proposal: Troy will help Finn with a research project for his overbearing boss if Finn will help Troy solve a mystery involving two men who died in the building under mysterious circumstances in 1878.

Finn and Troy piece together the two men’s lives—and the quiet romance that grew between them—through diaries, newspaper clippings, and police reports. They’re both soon convinced the men were murdered. They’re also convinced the ghosts are real—even Finn witnesses paranormal phenomena he can’t deny—and that they’re capable of affecting thoughts, feelings, and actions. When Finn and Troy start falling for each other despite years of animosity, Finn worries he’s being manipulated by the ghosts to stay with Troy and solve the case. Troy is convinced the love between them is real, but he’ll need to figure out how to get rid of the ghosts in order to prove it.

I’m self-publishing the second edition, which is my first real foray into self-publishing. It’s a little scary! But I hope to make the book available around Thanksgiving, so stay tuned!
