Virtual Events!

Here is a list of my current and upcoming virtual events! So many exciting things! 😍

Chat with Bree & Donna – Friday, May 22 @ 7PM CDT (that’s tomorrow!!)

Kit Rocha also known as Bree & Donna, hanging with Jessie Mihalik, Friday May 22, 7PM CST

Bree and Donna (aka Kit Rocha) were kind enough to invite me to hang out with them this week to celebrate the launch of Chaos Reigning. The chat will be live-streamed on YouTube tomorrow night and the chat will be active so you can come ask questions! We’ll talk about CR, writing, their upcoming book (which is SO GOOD), and maybe my new series.

If you head over to YouTube, you can set a reminder so you don’t get busy and forget. :)

Two interviews with Jeffe Kennedy!

Jeffe and I were supposed to have an event at The Ripped Bodice next week to celebrate the release of CR and The Fiery Crown (which I’m so looking forward to!), but because of everything the event was canceled. :(

The Ripped Bodice presents A Book Conversation with Jeffe Kennedy & Jessie Mihalik

So instead of an in-person event, we did a virtual video event hosted by our mutual agent, Ms. Sarah! It’s available on The Ripped Bodice’s Instagram! And you can watch it in your browser if you don’t have an Instagram account. :)

Jeffe was also kind enough to have me on her First Cup of Coffee podcast last Friday, and she asked the best questions! If you want to know how I came up with the idea for PR (and how much it changed from that original idea) or how I accidentally conference stalked my agent prior to signing with her, it’s all in here!

And finally, I’m doing a virtual event with Alyssa Cole and Nalini Singh on June 12 at 6PM EDT for Loyalty Bookstores.

Date Night w/ Alyssa Cole, Nalini Singh, and Jessie Mihalik. A new series featuring faves from Romancelandia chatting books, snacks, lure, and whatever else they feel like! Friday 6/12/2020 @ 6PM.

You all, Alyssa and Nalini are two of my favorite authors, and I might have made incomprehensible squeeing noises when Alyssa asked me to join them. 😂

You need a ticket to attend, but it’s free to sign up.

Chaos Reigning Spoiler/Discussion Thread

You all read so fast! I can’t believe so many of you have already read Chaos Reigning! 😍 If you have questions or you just want to chat with other readers, this is the thread for you.

Also, tune in on Friday, May 22 at 7PM CDT to the livestream on YouTube, where I’ll be chatting with Bree and Donna (aka Kit Rocha) about CR, my next series, their book, and whatever else we think of. Come hang out with us and ask questions there, too!

Spoilers will be allowed in this thread, so:


I will answer questions (fair warning: I may be a bit slow to respond while I try to get some writing done), but since I am hoping to tell more stories in this universe, some of my answers may be “wait and see.” :)








Still here? Ask away!

Chaos Reigning is Here!!

Chaos Reigning Available Now! The final book in the Consortium Rebellion Trilogy!

Your patience has been rewarded! Chaos Reigning is officially out in the world. 🎉🎉🎉

CHAOS REIGNING cover. A woman with dark, curly hair, in a long leather coat, facing left and holding a blaster. The background is an alien landscape with a planet and two moons in the sky and everything is shaded green-blue.

Interplanetary intrigue and romance combine in this electrifying finale to the Consortium Rebellion trilogy.

As the youngest member of her High House, Catarina von Hasenberg is used to being underestimated, but her youth and flighty, bubbly personality mask a clever mind and stubborn determination. Her enemies, blind to her true strength, do not suspect that Cat is a spy—which makes her the perfect candidate to go undercover at a rival House’s summer retreat to gather intelligence on their recent treachery.

Cat’s overprotective older sister reluctantly agrees, but on one condition: Cat cannot go alone. Alexander Sterling, a quiet, gorgeous bodyguard, will accompany her, posing as her lover. After Cat tries, and fails, to ditch Alex, she grudgingly agrees, confident in her ability to manage him. After all, she’s never found a person she can’t manipulate.

But Alex proves more difficult—and more desirable—than Cat anticipated. When she’s attacked and nearly killed, she and Alex are forced to work together to figure out how deep the treason goes. With rumors of widespread assaults on Serenity raging, communications down, and the rest of her family trapped off-planet, Catarina must persuade Alex to return to Earth to expose the truth and finish this deadly battle once and for all.

But Cat can’t explain why she’s the perfect person to infiltrate hostile territory without revealing secrets she’d rather keep buried…

Read the first three chapters!

It’s a little weird to release a book right now, especially one called Chaos Reigning. It’s a little too on the nose for what’s happening in the world, but my Chaos is filled with hope and happiness and a HEA, and I hope it gives you a nice vacation from the real world for a little bit.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me for my debut trilogy! It’s because of your support that I get to work on a new series and keep doing this job that I love. Pitching something new can be a fraught thing in publishing, and I am incredibly lucky to be able to keep going—all thanks to you, my readers!

I hope you enjoy the conclusion to the Consortium Rebellion arc. I do have more stories I’d like to tell in this universe, but we’ll have to see what happens in the future. :) Next up, I’m still working on TQT and also the first book in the new series, which is set in a new universe.

But today I’m celebrating. :)

All of the Chaos Reigning Preorder Bonus Info in One Place… Finally :)

First, today (May 14) is the last day to enter to win an ARC, so head over to the giveaway post before midnight!

If you’ve preorder CR, I want to give you some goodies as a thank you, while supplies last!

Print Preorder Bonus! A picture of the four different bookplate designs as well as the button and bookmark. While supplies last, at participating bookstores.

If you want a print book, then I recommend buying from The Ripped Bodice (five left as of Tuesday), Love’s Sweet Arrow, or Mysterious Galaxy (new yesterday!).

Not only will you be supporting an independent bookstore, you’ll also get a bookmark, button, and signed bookplate (while supplies last). If you want a signed book, this is going to be your only option until the world is safer.

Ebook Preorder Bonus! Get a bookmark, sticker, and note. While supplies last.

If you’ve preordered an ebook, a print book from another store, or requested that your library buy a copy of CR, then I’ll send you a sticker and bookmark along with a (very) brief note, while supplies last. I have supplies to send about sixty of these, and it’s open to US and international readers as long as you live in one of the 190 countries that support USPS First Class Mail.

Because I have no idea how many of you are going to respond, here is how I’m going to do it: you don’t have to send me proof of your preorder/library purchase request, but if you do, you’ll move into the verified line, and I’ll send out swag to the verified people first.

So if 20 people verify, I’ll send them swag first, even if 50 non-verified people responded faster. Then I’ll send the remaining swag to the 40 non-verified people, in a first come, first served order. If 80 people are verified, the first 60 will get swag in first come, first served order.

Clear as mud? Excellent. :)

To claim, send me an email at mihalikwrites at gmaildotcom with the subject Preorder Bonus. If you want to send proof, then include a screenshot of the order/library purchase request page or forward the order email (feel free to redact personal info), whatever is easiest. Also include your name and address. All emails must be received by May 18 at 11:59PM CDT, but I wouldn’t wait if I were you. :)

I’ll start sending out swag in the middle of next week based on the plan above, and I will eventually respond to everyone via email (so you know whether to check your mailbox or not), but it won’t be until I start sending stuff. If I hit sixty verified people super fast, I’ll update the post.

And if you still need to preorder, I’ve got you. :)
