New For 2017: Books, Travel, and Mild Exercise.

So many shiny things to look forward to.

I hope your holidays are warm and bright. Mine have been filled with an embarrassment of riches, which will lead me to overeat, undersleep, and caffeinate like I’m going to swim to Mars.

After this period of eating and eating and then napping, I’m entering what I call the “Winter of My Discontent”. This is when I begin various exercise challenges followed by pulled muscles, mild anger, and wheezing.

Oh, there will be wheezing.

There are now word counters on my website, so you can see the progress of each book. At current rates, 2017 looks to be busy. I’ll have three titles, two short stories (more on those later) and two audiobooks. I also have new art, graphics, bookmarks, and other various goodies that I’ll be giving away at author events. I think you’ll love the new look of everything; it was time to freshen the place up, so to speak.

My travel calendar is full, and getting fuller. Or fullerer. Regardless, you know what I mean—I start the year off in beautiful Roanoke, Virginia, on January 28th. It’s a fantastic city, and I’ll be there twice during the year. If you haven’t been—go. They have all the things I love crammed into an old city filed with new life and American charm.

I’ll send out mailings as events are added; I hope to schedule signings in the Carolinas, Midwest, and California. Do you have a suggestion for a signing? Let me know—I love small events in interesting places.

See you this year, Bookfriends. Cheers!

No Fooling: Julia Whelan, YA, and Big News

With apologies to my wife, who I disturbed with my revelation as she attempted to eat cheese and crackers in peace. 

I’m writing a new book and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever done. The feeling I have while writing this book is surreal– I had to dredge deep to find a similar sensation, and the closest experience has been on an occasion where I was playing basketball and felt like I couldn’t miss. Let me clarify, here– I was a remarkably average basketball player, but I was enthusiastic. However, on one night in 1985, I was unstoppable.

MAD SKEELZ.


Just like right now. 

Falling to Her is already beautiful. It’s about a young woman named Livvy who is different from every other person who have ever lived. You see, she was born with half a heart, but she’s survived to the age of seventeen– and help is on the way, but not from anyplace you might expect. If you have to classify this book, it would be YA Paranormal, but that’s up to you. It will be available on September 1st, and I can also confirm something really exciting:

Audible narrator of the year Julia Whelan will be performing the audio version. You may recognize her name from Gone Girl. Needless to say, I’m over the moon. Take a listen to some of her work here:Julia Whelan, Narrator of the Year

Julia of the Golden Voice

Then, there’s Livvy.  Let’s meet her.



It’s an exciting year; filled with great news. Hope you’re excited. That’s all for now, I’m off to write.

Cheers,
Terry

Let’s Talk About Free Audiobooks.

Do you like books about:

Paranormal? Urban Fantasy? Succubi and Demons? Okay, let’s talk. I have a few freebies to give away

Do you like Audiobooks? 

If you answered yes to both questions, let’s talk. I have a few freebies to give away. I ran a promotion with a service where listeners were given copies of my books in audio form, and unfortunately, it didn’t work out.

So, let me know if you enjoy listening and reviewing (to the genres I write within), and I’d love to share several wonderful hours of free entertainment with you.

Next questions: Do you like dragons? The end of the world? Post-Apocalyptic scenarios? You’re in luck as well. The audiobook for Banshee will be available late this week. I have copies available for review.

Click the links to take a snoop, and email me at terrymaggertbooks@gmail.com to receive your copy.

I’ll be signing and on panels at LibertyCon in beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee this weekend. Stop by if you’re around, there will be many excellent authors there.
