I can finally post a blog again after all the confusion with my missing post editor. Thank you Croco!
Very soon, I will also have a new look and be better integrated with the rest of my social media. I cannot wait! Stay tuned for all the changes.
In the meantime, let me fill you in on the last year of JLH publishing news.
* I have self-published The Murder King’s Woman and The Murder King’s Summons, yay! These are available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, All Romance ebooks and Smashwords.
* I have released an unrelated short story in The Mammoth Book of Futuristic Romance titled Naturally Beautiful. I will be self-publishing that as a single very soon.
* I have another unrelated, complete and raring-to-go short story that should have more news soon.
* I am nearing completion on The Murder King’s Valentine, Murder Tales #3. This story is much longer than the first two combined.
On the International Literary Project to Fight Friedreich’s Ataxia front – we have a complete novel and it’s being translated in full in the primary writer languages: Spanish, English, Portuguese and Italian. We have translators waiting in the wings for many more languages once the full novels have been edited. We also have a cover! I just can’t share it now. I know. Bummer. But soon. In the meantime, if anyone would like to post the logo on their blog in support of the project (Anything to get awareness out!), email me at JLH@JamieLeighHansen.com.
Another big help is to Like the page on Facebook and encourage your family and friends to do so as well. That way you’ll have the best access to updates.
And for anyone who would like to join me at this year’s Get Lit! Festival in Spokane, WA on April 13, I am part of a 6 author team providing an interactive, hands-on workshop on Worldbuilding. http://outreach.ewu.edu/getlit/3294.xml More info TBA.

Murder Tales: An exciting new series of short stories by
Jamie Leigh Hansen
When The Murder King’s Woman was originally published in The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2, I was so excited. I sat right there in Barnes and Noble, taking pictures of the pretty cover.
The Murder King’s Woman is about Mary, a human girl whose family was killed during a family camping trip when she was a child. The rogue vampire responsible for destroying her life was hunted and killed by no less than Sebastian, the Murder King himself. Leading his warrior Crows, a mix of vampires and werewolves, Sebastian and the Murders purpose is to hunt and eradicate the rogues of paranormal kind, keeping their existence secret and bringing safety to their races – it is not to raise the children of human victims. But Mary was too old, her trauma too ingrained, for her to forget. Even with help. And she was too young to be left to her own devices. Mary was brought home and raised among them, the only human to live among them. But now Sebastian has been taken and the only chance he has is the human pet no one believes in.
As I looked at the pretty pages, this nagging feeling that had been pulling at me all year returned. Mary wasn’t finished telling me her story. She’s a strong woman with definite plans for her future and just enough of a past for it to haunt her. So I started writing that day. When I finished the sequel, The Murder King’s Summons, I learned another important fact. I still wasn’t done.
Damn mouthy character hasn’t given me peace since. LOL Therefore, we have reached a compromise. I will write Mary’s journey piece by piece and release it in digital form. The sequel has now become Murder Tales 2: The Murder King’s Summons, and will be released later in December 2011. Keep a look out for:
