Snippet from Ruins & Revenge featuring Tam & Talon

Uncategorized Add comments

I’m working hard on Ruins & Revenge and will be turning it in for editing on March 1. We have a publication date of May 2. As soon as it goes on pre-order, I’ll let you know.

And thank you so much for all the kind words and reviews for The Ghoul Vendetta! If you want to, I’d love it if you posted a review. It really helps when people are looking for new books/authors. Thank you!

Now, for your reading enjoyment, here’s Tam & Talon (with a special appearance by a notable villain’s mom):

She saw Talon and smiled. “I see you brought your mongrel. Were you afraid he wouldn’t live one day at court without your protection?”

I was prepared to restrain Talon if necessary. It wasn’t necessary. He stood straight and still by my side, temper not only held in check, a hint of a smile curling his lips and a glint in his eyes.

A dangerous glint, but perfectly controlled.

I felt a surge of reassurance—and pride.

“I fear nothing concerning my son,” I said.

Talon’s smile broadened into a wicked grin.

My wicked grin.

Pride came again, and hot on its heels was concern. I knew what that grin meant when I was wearing it.

Talon was up to something. More accurately, he was up to no good.

His power wasn’t building.

It was already there. Ready to release, but held in perfect check.

I knew it, but Sandrina didn’t appear to have a clue. Or if she did, she dismissed his skills as beneath her own. She would realize her mistake when Talon unleashed on her.

More award nominations!

Last year, The Dragon Conspiracy was nominated for and won the RT Reviewers Choice award for Best Urban Fantasy Novel. I went to the RT Convention last year in Las Vegas and had a great time accepting the award.

This year, I’ve been nominated for TWO RT Reviewers Choice awards!

The Brimstone Deception has been nominated for Best Urban Fantasy Worldbuilding.

Wedding Bells, Magic Spells has been nominated for Best Fantasy Novel.

I couldn’t be more honored and thrilled!

Snippet from Ruins & Revenge — Coming May 2

Uncategorized Add comments

Here’s a snippet from Ruins & Revenge — the upcoming sequel to Treasure & Treason. Our pub date is May 2, but it’s not available for pre-order yet (I’m still writing it). As soon as it can be ordered, I’ll let you know.

I *just* wrote this, so it’s fresh from my author brain. ; )

I held up a hand, signaling everyone to stop.

Jash looked at me like I’d lost my mind.

I wasn’t sure he was wrong. But I was sure we were dead if we made any sudden moves.

“How much farther?” I asked Agata, keeping my voice low and calm.  

Her eyes darted from side to side. I knew what she was seeing. The beasts were stalking us, staying mostly out of sight, giving us occasional glimpses to build our terror to the point where we’d make a break for it.

All part of the game. A game I was determined not to play.

Agata exhaled slowly, calming herself. “On the other side of the cavern.” She indicated direction with the slightest nod of her head—and a sardonic snort. “Wherever that is.”

Okay, that wasn’t what I wanted to hear.

“What’s your plan?” she asked.

“Get out of this alive.”

She almost smiled. “That’s a goal, not a plan. Try again.”

Release day for The Ghoul Vendetta is here!

The Ghoul Vendetta is available now at your favorite book or ebook retailer!

Here are a few: Amazon, B&N, Apple, IndieBound, Google.

It will be available as an audiobook from Audible, but I don’t have a release date yet. As soon as I know, you’ll know, I promise.

I think it’s the best SPI Files book I’ve written so far, if I do say so myself. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

As always, if the book rocks your world (or even induces a mild seismic event), I’d love it if you would post a review on the retailer site of your choice.

Happy reading!
