Obligatory release post.
A charming, short novella in the Innkeeper Chronicles, from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Ilona Andrews.
Thank you for joining us at Gertrude Hunt, the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, during the Treaty Stay. As you know, we are honor-bound to accept all guests during this oldest of innkeeper holidays and we are expecting a dangerous guest. Or several. But have no fear. Your safety and comfort is our first priority. The inn and your hosts, Dina Demille and Sean Evans, will defend you at all costs. [But we hope we don’t have to.]
Every winter, Innkeepers look forward to celebrating their own special holiday, which commemorates the ancient treaty that united the very first Inns and established the rules that protect them, their intergalactic guests, and the very unaware/oblivious people of [planet] Earth. By tradition, the Innkeepers welcomed three guests: a warrior, a sage, and a pilgrim, but during the holiday, Innkeepers must open their doors to anyone who seeks lodging. Anyone.
All Dina hopes is that the guests and conduct themselves in a polite manner. But what’s a holiday without at least one disaster?

Print buy links: Amazon | Ingram – the Ingram edition is taking a little longer to work its way through production, but it’s coming.
Audio: Coming Soon. Here is a sample from Natalie, who will be taking the series over from Renee Raudman.
We realize that the switch of narrators can be jarring. Unfortunately, sometimes business part of publishing undergoes a change. Natalie has done an excellent job, and we both enjoyed listening to her and wished the sample was longer. 🙂 We are confident that she will do justice to our series just as Renee did.
The obligatory promotional post is complete.
Thank you so much for joining us on our visit to the inn. The novella actually was slated for later this year, but judging from your emails, the tail end of 2019 hit a lot of people like a dumpster truck, so we decided to release it early.
We can definitely relate. 2019 sucked. Sick kids, cancelled tours, broken deadlines, political situation that seems to rob one of their illusion of safety, two health scares, injured pets, friends being hit with huge problems, collapsed writer organizations… I feel like we all need a medal for surviving. Like, yep, we got through this year. I’d like to thank my spouse, children, and Advil PM that lets me sleep at night…
:::waits for the polite applause:::
Sweep With Me was a bright spot in all of this. So many of you left wonderful uplifting comments. To know that your work changes the way people feel about their circumstances, even if only for a little while, is such a gratifying experience.
Here is hoping 2020 will be a little easier on all of us.
