As a final note, I should say that I have set up a Patreon page. For more information on that and/or your opportunity to support me as an author (in exchange for some perks), click here.
Good news for readers in the US – my first novel, A Long, Long Sleep, is currently on supersale in ebook format: $1.99 instead of $7.99!
See below for links of where to buy, but don’t forget that you, in many cases, don’t need an e-reader to buy and read ebooks. Kindle, for example, have a free app you can download for most devices – phones, computers, and tablets.
Offer ends August 31st 2017
If you’re a new visitor to my website, welcome! And if you’ve been here before: welcome back, and I hope you like the facelift.
That’s right, AnnaSheehan.com got a makeover!
Do let me know what you think.
Today I received an email from a friend saying his copy of Spinning Thorns is missing pages at the end. Obviously this is very upsetting for both him and me, but I’ve been told it’s a one-off issue.
If you ever come across this or any other error in any of my books, please get in contact.
My third book, Spinning Thorns, is out now in the UK!
Sleeping Beauty has woken.
The world has been renewed.
Everyone is living happily ever after . . .
Sharp, blood-seeking thorns still surround the castle. A feud remains between those who wield magic and those who were subjected to it. And while the kingdom is divided against itself, nothing can thrive.
A rebellion may be needed – and that’s where Sleeping Beauty’s daughter comes in . . .

For those of you waiting for news on a sequel to A Long Long Sleep, did you know I have two short stories available to read, in anthologies that you could check out as you wait?
The Pen and The Key came out in 2005 and is the 50th Anniversary Anthology of Pacific Northwest Writers, while MOTA 9 was released in 2009, centering around the theme of Addictions.
I just got back from this year’s Chicon (Chicago Convention) – host of the 70th World Science Fiction Convention, also known as Worldcon – where I tied for the Hal Clement Golden Duck award in the YA Category for A Long Long Sleep! Below is a photo of me with my duck necklace as proof.
