As many of you know, my good friend and fellow author, Jeffe Kennedy, dropped by a week or so ago as part of her virtual book tour celebrating the release of her latest book, The Talon of the Hawk. The Talon of the Hawk is being released today, May 26, by Kensington and Jeffe has some additional exciting news to share.

ABOUT NEGOTIATION: A wounded warrior trapped by the sorceress who knows him better than he does himself… General Uorsin escapes the last devastating battle, only to find himself alone on a mountain, feverish and no closer to finding the paradise that drives him on. Salena, greatest shapeshifter and magic-worker of her people, springs the trap she’s set to protect her land—and to prevent the ravager Uorsin from ever reaching it. Together, they spend a night setting the terms that will determine not only the rest of their lives, but the fates of the peoples of the Twelve Kingdoms—and the thirteenth.
Jeffe’s novella, Negotiation, is the prequel novella for The Twelve Kingdoms series. Until now it was only available in the anthology Thunder on the Battlefield, Vol. II. Jeffe will release Negotiation in ebook form, together with the official release of The Talon of the Hawk. To celebrate the release of The Talon of the Hawk (book 3 in the Twelve Kingdoms series) and the re-release of Negotiation, Negotiation will be free for a limited time. NOTE: As of 6;30 a.m. CDT, the novella was listed as 99 cents on Amazon, but I’m told the price will drop, so keep checking. And now off to Ye Olde Day Jobbe…
