"Let's Talk About..." is where Blondie waxes about things she hasn't written yet, talks about writing as a process, reviews recent stories she might have read, and basically puts off actually writing anything of value.
This is considered an unofficial, open discussion - so there will be SPOILERS for any and all Warlord Team publications.
For all official announcements, please refer to K. M. Mayville's Goodreads:
Sue is a living weapon of the Silent One. His otherworldly master wants him to collect a thousand souls so that they can journey into The Expanse and escape the magic that binds their family to Midrift. Sue is happy to oblige because he likes the promise of getting his old life back once the stargodlings are all gone.
Of course, the Void Maker can’t have that. TVM would much rather absorb their four other stargodling siblings, which includes the Silent One, and flee the planet with any ill-gotten souls all to themselves. And so, the Void Maker has sent their own living weapon to waylay Sue.
Hijinks ensue, as neither of the eldritch stargodlings could have predicted they’d be at the mercy of a romantic-comedy plot!
This is a book that follows the events of Jane the Lich, but does not rely on you having already read that book. For that reason, you can just dive right in without context and still have a good time.
Why should I read this?Because it's a rivals-to-lovers romantic-comedy masquerading as a weird-fiction, tentacle-god story. It starts off by pretending it's a fantasy adventure romp through a world of horrors, but then turns into a filial drama full of chaotic twists and turns that would make even the Bronte sisters roll in their grave, if Lovecraft wasn't already trying to transform into a particle accelerator.
Why shouldn't I read this?There are casual and detailed references to the following triggers: self-harm, alcohol abuse, familial abuse, sexual abuse, drug abuse, sleep-dependency, homicide, fratricide, and child abuse. There is also a lot of cursing and heavy sexual innuendo. Please be gentle with yourselves and seek help if you need it.

Thamlin Sharpier and Frost Hatcherdautr, two dragon riders loyal to the imperialistic United Fiefs of Dorn, find themselves behind enemies lines, and must learn to put aside their differences in order to survive the semi-aquatic state of Radia and it's strange, mermadic populace.
Why read? If you like rivals-to-lovers, Greek fates, wyverns, shark-like mermaids, thousand-year-old magical artifacts, steam-punk robots, dragon gods, lovecraftian masses of flesh with a million eyes, and snarky one-liners spouted off at inappropriate moments... you have my sympathy, and you'll probably also like this story.

"If you don't want the skin off their bones turned into jackets for what remains of my collection... you'd best find my stolen books, Ms. Fairchild."
Tesni Fairchild received a letter from her sister after some months of silence on the latter's part. Invited to celebrate her newborn nephew's first showing at church as his Godmother, Tesni puts her life in Birmingham on hold to journey to Argostine, an isle just off the coast of Blackpool. But all is not what it seems. The talk around Argostine's queer reputation constantly assails her motivation, and when Tesni at long last crosses the threshold of her sister's estate, babe and mother are decidedly absent.
Assured by the Lord and the governess of the house that the Lady of Cathair Estate is simply seeking post-natal solace in Argostine's Lonely wood before the showing, Tesni familiarizes herself with the small, craggy town... and, upon meeting the dubious characters that make up the emerald-soaked township, becomes more and more certain that something has gone terribly, terribly wrong and she has arrived all too late to prevent it.
But then she meets Leabharlannaí, a Courtless trickster Fae, and a deal is struck betwixt them.
Caught between storm, superstition, and the supernatural, Tesni must keep her wits and her sanity about her if she even hopesto leave the island with every one of her pieces still attached.
Will continue to write in this one if there's any interest.
