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 . . .
The sequel to A Long Long Sleep, No Life But This, is released, and available through the book depository in America, and sort of through Amazon. WOOT! Thanks everyone, for all the support and encouragement.
My second book, No Life But This (the sequel to A Long Long Sleep), is now available for pre-order through Amazon here.
Rose spent most of her life asleep. Otto spent his as an object.
Rose Fitzroy woke from her long sleep to a changed world and new life. Her friend Otto watched her from afar, longing for what he felt he couldn’t have. But just when things seem to be going right, his own biology backfires, sending him into a deathly spiral that neither of them can stop. His only hope lies on the distant ice moon of Europa, where an experimental treatment might bring him back from the brink.
But Europa is in a state of revolution, and Otto’s brother Quin is tangled up in it. With Otto going slowly insane, and Rose haunted by ghosts of her old life, more than one world may soon be destroyed around them.
The sequel to A Long, Long Sleep, titled No Life But This, is officially in the works with the British publisher Gollancz, on track for publication in December. No other sales or languages at this time, but hey, WE GOT ONE!!! It’s happening, folks. Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me, and begged for a sequel.

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.
