End of an Era

Hurog Messageboard

Briggsverse Wiki

By: Linda January 1, 2022

Happy New Year Everyone!

Readers who follow Patty on her social media will know that we made the decision to close down the Hurog messageboard on December 31, 2021.

If you were unfamiliar with it, the Hurog Messageboard was a part of Patty's website and it went live back in 2007. Although not as busy as it was in its heyday there was still a strong and vibrant community of members that posted there so we didn't want to remove the messageboard without offering them an alternative. As a result, we opened up an Official Patricia Briggs Discord Server. Here's an Invite to Join. The link expires every seven days so we’ll continually refresh it and repost it here until we're ready for the server to go fully public. If you’re not aware of what Discord is it’s very similar to a messageboard format and you can use it on your computer browser, their desktop app and/or on a mobile device.

Removing the messageboard is most definitely the end of an era but it was a wild and wonderful ride while it lasted. We'll miss it but it's time to move on.

This leads us to the second part of our news. If the messageboard is gone where is the Mercyverse canon?

We've created a Briggsverse Wiki, there's a link here on the website banner. It will eventually house the canon for all of Patty's works as well as some FAQ and archived information from the messageboard that we didn't want to lose, like some of Mike's posts as well as the "Ask Patty" section.

Is the canon complete? No, it's bare bones right now but it's being worked daily.

How do you view it? Just click on the link at the top of the page. You'll need to register to view it since it's a work in progress. The Wiki will be updated daily so be sure to check back.

Can I help add information to the wiki?

Yes! If you're interested in joining the Briggsverse Wiki Team you can email me (Linda) wiki@hurog.com

Soul Taken

Release Date Moved to June 21, 2022

By: Patty December 10, 2021

Dear Readers,

Mea Culpa. I am still not finished with Soul Taken, which means that a March 2022 publication is out.

I honestly don't know what the problem has been, though I suspect that the ongoing Plague Year Part Two has a lot to do with it. This whole situation has reminded me that I am lucky in both my publishing house and my editor who have been unbelievably supportive. The good news is that the book is now (finally) coming along fine. In order to insure that you get the best Mercy possible, we have moved Soul Taken to June 21, 2022. This is a tentative date as there is a strong possibility that it might be sooner if I get finished soon. The publication date move will allow us time to do a really good editing run. This is vitally important to me because it is in the editing phase that most of the humor and best moments are polished. Mercy might understand if I sent a story out into the world wasn't happy with, but I have a feeling that a few of my other imaginary friends would quit speaking to me. Thank you so much for your understanding.

With love,
Patricia (Patty) Briggs

P.S. It has been suggested that Asil may be at fault here - his next date story comes out in the Heroic Hearts anthology in May, and his ego would not stand for sharing the limelight with Mercy. That makes sense to me, so it's really not Patty's fault!

P.P.S. Your supportive comments are making Patty and I snivel! I've said it before and it's still the truth - Patty has the very BEST fans in the whole wide world. You guys are awesome and amazing!
