Long-time readers might have read my London Undead (now the London Shifters) series way back in 2013 when I was still writing as PJ Schnyder. I’ve since had the rights reverted to me and I’ll be re-releasing them in ebook format this autumn, starting with Bite Me.
You might wonder, What’s different? Is it worth adding these to your collection?
- All new covers! The original covers by Carina Press really highlighted the zombie apocalypse setting of these stories and some people worried the romance was WITH the zombies, which is not the case. These are shapeshifter/human romances, and if you’re Team Werewolf, these might be just what you’re looking for.
- The series name, “London Undead” also really leaned heavily into the zombie setting. I decided the London Shifters was a much better description of the romantic core of the series.
- A fresh professional editorial pass was done on all three books. I wanted to be sure these older stories were up to par with my level of writing today.
- Bite Me, in particular, featured a disabled heroine in the original version. This disability is outside of my personal experience and I felt I didn’t have the insight or experience to write this well. I was worried I could do harm unintentionally. So Maisie’s character has been revised with this in mind.
The London Shifters series will release on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited first, starting with Bite Me on September 14 – the day before my birthday! Followed by Sing for the Dead and Survive to Dawn each month after that.
You can pre-order Bite Me by clicking here.
If you’re not a Kindle reader, no worries! I plan to take the series wide next summer and make the books available in most places books are sold online.
So…what do you think of the new covers?
Extreme Honor, the first in the True Heroes series, releases tomorrow! This is my first book available in brick & mortar stores and I am incredibly excited.

About That Story
Happy New Year! This is going to be a big year for me as Piper J. Drake so I figured it’d be good to do a quick preview of this years plans, appearances, and All.The.Things.
The first of the True Heroes series, Extreme Honor, releases on January 26 in bookstores everywhere! This title is a big milestone for me: my first print book in traditional bookstores.
Two more books are scheduled to release in 2016 for the True Heroes series, so if you enjoy Extreme Honor (and I very much hope you do!) then watch for Ultimate Courage in July and Absolute Trust in December.
For those of you who enjoyed Hidden Impact, released last year, the Safeguard series also continues with Deadly Testimony in May and Contracted Defense in November.
That’s 5 books releasing this year.
No book tours scheduled yet, but I will be at RT Booklover’s Convention in Vegas and the Barbara Vey Reader Appreciation Luncheon in Wisconsin this spring. I’ll be updating my Events as the year goes on as well.
Both the True Heroes and Safeguard series were originally contracted for 3 books each. I haven’t heard yet whether either of these will continue with more in the series but I do have outlines ready in case there’s a request to continue them.
In the meantime, I’m preparing a proposal for a new romantic suspense series to be ready for my agent in Q1. It is different and edgy with quirky characters and dark heroes. I’m very much hoping to share more in the near future.
In 2016, I also have personal goals to improve my health and get more fit. These seem fairly mundane, but they’re incredibly important to the success of my plans for the year. I’ll be continuing to travel for the day job and I need to keep up my stamina as I dive into plans to write even more stories.
Yay! It’s release day for Hidden Impact, my debut romantic suspense. I’m so excited to see this book out in the world. Here’s hoping you all enjoy it!
Available now from Carina Press!
To celebrate, we’ve got a blog blitz scheduled this week in addition to the blog tour scheduled by the Carina Press team. Every blogger on this blitz has unique behind-the-scenes insight into the writing of Hidden Impact.
