An Idol with Luv by Piper J. Drake

Out Now!

An Idol with Luv

Intergalactic Idol #1

Trouble can be fun, and fun can be a great way to recover from burnout.

Nirin is a lot of things-a human, who shapeshifts into a werewolf, who works as a mercenary-so she strives for a simple life. Complete the mission. Get paid. Survive. Avoid complications.

But when an old friend calls in a favor and hires her to protect a brilliant intergalactic idol, she finds herself sharing guard duty with the rakish station engineer she swore she’d never get tangled up with again. She’s tempted beyond reason by each of them, and they’re quickly overriding any reasons not to choose the both of them.

Add in the discovery of a dead body in a place where all three of them are potential suspects, and this job is beyond complicated.

Wings Once Cursed & Bound

My wings unbound, I am the Thai bird princess, the kinnaree, and no matter the cost, I will be free.

Peeraphan Rahttana lives her life in Seattle, unaware of the complicated magical world spinning just beyond the shadows and mist…until a violent clash outside her dance rehearsal has her literally whisked off her feet. Her darkly brooding rescuer, vampire Bennett Andrews, claims to represent a secret organization dedicated to locating objects of myth and magic, tucking them safely away where they can do no harm—but he’s too late to save Peeraphan from a deadly curse.

Yet Peeraphan isn’t what she seems. Wings unbound, she’s a Thai bird princess of legend…and while the curse won’t kill her outright, it’s only a matter of time. Determined, Bennett sweeps Peeraphan deeper into a supernatural world far beyond anything she ever imagined in a desperate bid to find a solution…and an explanation for the powers even she doesn’t know how to define.

Her world may have changed overnight, but Peeraphan knows one thing for certain: she can’t go back to living as a human anymore. Not when she’s felt what it’s like to fly with Bennett by her side. She’s determined to keep her wings and her freedom…and defy anyone who would try to take them from her again.

What would you save if the world you knew disappeared and you could open your eyes to what exists just beyond?

We’ve no idea when this sale will end, so if you were planning to pick up the print format for yourself or a friend/loved one, now is a good time!

Events in April 2024

April 20, 2024, 10AM – 4PM Pacific

Asian dramas have become incredibly popular, K-dramas in particular. They hook viewers and create a voracious fan base. Why? The plots, characters, and settings have a fresh feel – just enough commonality to give readers an anchor while they’re introduced to elements that are new and different from what they’ve previously experienced so they still get the same feeling of escape from their own everyday life.

Students will learn to recognize the most addictive elements in Asian drama stories, leading to complex and satisfying plot lines, fresh yet familiar worldbuilding, characters you can’t help but root for, and compelling hooks to draw readers from chapter to chapter straight through to the end of one book and into the next. We’ll discuss what makes these stories so binge-worthy and how to take inspiration from them to maximize your writing craft.

This class provides illustrative examples and practical craft takeaways for storytellers to apply to their own stories. An interactive brainstorming session will give students the opportunity to discuss immediate ways to apply what they’ve learned to current (or future) works in progress.

That’s it for Sales & New Releases this month. If you happen across deals I didn’t know about, feel free to let me know by using Piper’s contact form or leaving a comment.

Happy reading!
