Jennifer Brozek | March 2023

Never Let Me Omnibus is Available Again

My Bram Stoker nominated Melissa Allen trilogy is in print again, and for the first time, the omnibus is in ebook format! The cover art is by the ever-fabulous Peter Tikos.

The omnibus edition of Jennifer Brozek’s acclaimed Melissa Allen trilogy.

Never Let Me Sleep. What would you do if you discovered that everyone, in your house, on your street and in your town was dead? Then you discovered you weren’t alone–and whatever was out there was hunting you? Melissa Allen knows. With only a voice on the phone to help her, Melissa must find out what happened, stop it from happening again, and do it before the monsters get her. Finalist for the Bram Stoker award.

Never Let Me Leave. What would you do if you found yourself locked in an underground lab with a murderous alien hunting you? Melissa Allen and her new friends know. With no help from the outside and time running out, it’s up to Melissa to keep herself and the other teens safe. How can she do that when she’s not sure who she can trust? Someone in the lab helped that alien escape. Someone human.

Never Let Me Die. What would you do if your sister was shot and your brother was kidnapped? Melissa Allen knows. It’s been six months since the attack at PAR Lab. Melissa, Carrie, and Adam have settled into a semblance of domestic bliss with Agent Heather Shaker as their guardian. But someone has been watching them, taking photos and keeping notes. Someone who seems to know everything about them. Someone who has no problem trying to kill them.

This special edition features all three books in Jennifer Brozek’s Melissa Allen series: Never Let Me Sleep, Never Let Me Leave, Never Let Me Die as well as the bonus short story, “Never Let Me Feel.”

Buy it on Amazon or from Speaking Volumes.

Bubble and Squeek for 20 Mar 2023

I'm knee-deep in some behind-the-scenes stuff and about to do another round of decluttering of my wardrobe because I've put it off for two years and it shows. Also, it's the Spring Equinox!

Audiobooks: Trendane and Liisa are working on my BattleTech Rogue Academy trilogy. Coming soon-ish. More details when I have it but I’m stupidly happy to have Tren and Liisa working on this series.

Book Club Pick: I love it when one of my books is selected at a book club (The Reinvented Heart anthology). It happened to Last Days of Salton Academy, too.  

For Consideration: Hugo award nominations are happening. I would be pleased if you would consider me and @Catrambo for short form editor. "Jennifer Brozek and Cat Rambo, The Reinvented Heart anthology, Publisher: CAEZIK SF & Fantasy,"

End of an Era: has closed after 26 years. So much sadness. It was the one place I always recommended. It was the site I put up my first call for submissions as an editor.

Pre-order Release: The Tears of Perseus omnibus is up for pre-release. This mosaic novel is a single space opera story told from six different points of view across three hundred years.

Recommendation: For cozy YouTube watching: Max Miller on Tasting History for food and historical context. This guy is binge-worthy.

Support: As always… if you appreciate my work and would like to support me, I love coffee. I am made of caffeine. This is the quickest way to brighten my day.
