The latest Immortal Chronicle

I’m nearing the completion of the first draft of volume five in The Immortal Chronicles: Regency Immortal.  I’m hoping to roll it out for everyone by the end of March, but look!  I already have a cover!

I’m excited!  How could I not be with this cover?

Wait, I could just quit?Image

I have a new article up at the Huffington Post this afternoon.

I didn’t know quitting was an option.

I imagine that sounds a little like a derivation of one of those motivational-slash-inspirational mantras that someone with a title like “life coach” shouts at an unreasonable volume, or possibly the beginning of a convoluted humble-brag, and that isn’t necessarily where I’m going with this. I only mean that when it comes to writing, it legitimately never occurred to me that I could (or should) simply not write anymore. Like, at all.

Here’s a link to the full article

The Immortal Chronicles anthology #1GeneDoucette_FirstFolio1400

You can now pick up the first three books in The Immortal Chronicles in one volume!  That volume is First Folio: Pirates, Succubi and Madmen and the ebook edition (Kindle only) went on sale this morning.  You can download your copy here.

Paperback

Also for the first time, you can own Immortal Chronicles stories in print, if you enjoy that sort of thing.  That edition is on sale online more or less everywhere books are sold.  My two personal favorites are the Createspace Store and Amazonbut don’t let me talk you out of getting it from somewhere else.

And this is the full cover, which makes the whole thing worth owning, in my opinion.

The first Immortal Chronicles anthology

We are one week away from the formal digital release of First Folio: Pirates, Succubi and Madmen, the first anthology collection of The Immortal Chronicles!

If you’re a reader of the Immortal novels but have not yet delved into the shorter novellas, now is your opportunity to own the first three Chronicle stories in one volume.  And unlike the individual stories, the anthology is available in print!

Also, look at this cover.  LOOK at it!  It’s gorgeous!

Happy Holidays and all that

Greetings from me on Christmas Day!  I wanted to take a quick minute to wave to everyone who just got a Kindle for Christmas and are looking up my books, because you guys are awesome and I love you.

Also, if you’re trying to figure out where to start reading, you will find a handy guide to the Immortal books and their order here.  

Two things not included in that guide:GeneDoucette_YuletideImmortal1400

Yuletide Immortal, which is the fourth book in the Immortal Chronicles.  It is holiday-themed, but that doesn’t mean you have to read it NOW, just that Santa is in it somewhere.  Yes, really, it has Santa.  As with all the Chronicles, if you read it first you’re totally okay.

First Folio: Pirates, Succubi and Madmen is a new anthology containing the first three books in The Immortal Chronicles along with an introduction from Adam.  The ebook edition is available as a pre-order and will release on January 6. GeneDoucette_FirstFolio1400 Unlike the other books in the Chronicles series, this book is also available in print, and you can buy a copy of that right now.

Sapphire Blue

Some of you might have come here looking for Sapphire Blue, which is an erotic novel penned by G Doucette.  Which is me.  But, as G Doucette.  Please be patient, and keep interested.  You will be able to read it in early 2015.  It’s going to be rolled out in six serial installments on the kindle, leading to a novel-length release in the summer.  More information about the release will be available on the G Doucette Tumblr, so do follow me (him) there.

New review from Game VortexImmortal-Edge-of-World-Low-Res-Cover

Game Vortex likes me!  And I like Game Vortex, possibly in part because they like me.  I’m easy that way.

I thoroughly enjoy the way Doucette goes between the past and the present to play out the story. Once again, he weaves an intricate and brilliant tale about a lovable cast of characters, especially Adam, the fun-loving, alcoholic immortal.

You can check out the entire review right here.

Incidentally, the reviewer–one Psibabe–also said, “I don’t mind saying that I’d love to see more of Adam’s adventures, both past and present/future if Gene Doucette wants to revisit them.”

So here’s where I remind everyone about The Immortal Chronicles, three of which are now in an anthology, and also… I’ve started working on a new novel for Adam.  So don’t worry, he’ll be back soon enough.

New ways to read AdamGeneDoucette_HardBoiledImmortal1400

Hard-Boiled Immortal, the second book in The Immortal Chronicles, is now available on Nook and Kobo, and as a pre-order on iTunes with a release date of 12/16.  (No link to the iTunes, which is app-based.  It’s there, though!)

Why book two first?

Here’s the thing.  I wanted to start moving the Chronicles out to other platforms, but they were all enrolled in KDP Select, which is Amazon’s exclusive publishing thing.  GeneDoucette_ImmortalatSea1400By being enrolled there the stories could be read by people with Kindle Unlimited and by people using the Kindle Online Lending Library, and I had other benefits I never used, like countdown deals and free days.

In order to be able to publish to other platforms I had to first get the books out of Select, which meant unchecking the auto-renew box for each of them.  When I did that, Hard-Boiled Immortal came out of Select on 12/9, but Immortal at Sea won’t be out until February 8 and Immortal and the Madman on January 30.  I will be putting both of those out to the other platforms in February.

First Folio

Once The Immortal Chronicles volumes 1-3 are all out of Select, I can add First Folio: Pirates, Succubi and Madmen to the other platforms as well.GeneDoucette_ImmortalandtheMadman1400

The print edition of First Folio is available from other retailers, incidentally.  Barnes and Noble has it.  And if you want it on Kindle, don’t forget you can pre-order it right now.
