The biggest news is that A Hunt by Moonlight, the first book in my Werewolves and Gaslight mystery series witl be available on Amazon on August 27. Preorder now!
About the book:
Something more deadly than werewolves is stalking the gaslit streets of London. Inspector Royston Jones, unacknowledged bastard of a high-born family, is determined to track the killer before more young women fall to his knife. But his investigation puts him in the way of a lord who is a clandestine werewolf and the man’s fiancée , a woman alchemist with attitude and a secret of her own. Will they destroy Royston to protect their covert identities, or will they join with him to hunt the hunter?
Book Launch Party!
For local fans, or anyone in the mood for a road trip, there will be a Victorian Tea and Book Launch.
There will be live music by Otter Crossing Music and refreshments catered by the amazing Ebon Morse. I will be reading from the new novel and signing any of my books. (There will, of course, be books for sale!) No cover. (There will be an extra teapot for strictly optional cash donations to cover food costs.)
Free raffle for door prizes.
Period costumes admired but not required!
I would love to see you there!
Join the Thunderclap to support the launch!
OK, this has got to be the easiest, most painless way ever to support an author, but it can make *such* a difference! I’m sure most of you have heard me prattling on about my upcoming release.
A Hunt by Moonlight is the first novel of my new Werewolves and Gaslight mystery series. My first series (the ongoing Ravensblood urban fantasy series) and my two stand-alone novels have won awards and gotten great reviews and slowly increasing sales, but my editor thinks A Hunt By Moonlight could be my breakout novel. . .if I can get those all-important early sales.
No money involved, and you don’t even have to write your own tweet or remember when to post it! Sign up, and on release day Thunderclap will send out the tweet, Facebook and/or Tumblr message for you.
The catch is, Thunderclap won’t send out any tweets at all unless at least 100 people sign up. Please consider giving this novel a howl of support!

Raffle for Launch-day purchasers!
Since first-day sales are so important to Amazon rankings, I am running a special raffle for people who purchase through Amazon on launch day(8/27) (or who have pre-ordered). Simply send me a screen capture of your Amazon purchase (or, if you prefer, forward your purchase confirmation email) to mail(at)ShawnaReppert.com

Global Ebook Award success!!!
My other bit of news, second only to the launch of the new series: I am pleased and proud to announce that Raven’s Heart won a gold medal in the Global Ebook awards in the category of contemporary fantasy and Where Light Meets Shadow won a silver!
