Upcoming books & news on The Myth Manifestation paperback

Uncategorized Add comments

The print version of The Myth Manifestation is now available from B&N for those of you who were waiting.

Thank you so much for all of your kind emails, reviews, and comments on The Myth Manifestation! It was as much fun for me to write as it was for you to read.

That being said, I’m now working on the next (6th) SPI Files book — The Phoenix Illusion, which I hope to have out in late summer/early fall of this year.

After that, I have six books in the queue (which will keep me busy for the next 2-3 years):

  • SPI Files 7 — The Solstice Countdown 
  • SPI Files 8 — The Pandora Predicament
  • SPI Files 9 — The Demon Directive
  • Two more Raine Benares books (from Raine’s POV)
  • A “Raine Benares World Novel” (from Phaelan’s POV)

This is NOT the order in which these books will be written. I do know that I’ll write The Solstice Countdown after The Phoenix Illusion, and probably after that will come a Raine Benares book. After that? I won’t know until the characters tell me.

One thing I can tell you about the book I’m writing now (The Phoenix Illusion) — There will be two “guest stars” from my Raine books. Tam Nathrach and Agata Azul. Is that squeeing I hear? : )

For those SPI Files fans who have yet to read my Raine Benares books, writing the SPI Files was a natural progression from that series, as is the crossing over of characters and plots between the two.  From their covers, the Raine Benares books may look like traditional fantasy (and kinda “girly”), but they’re not. I wrote them with a modern urban fantasy tone—full of the type of action and humor found in the SPI Files. In short, if you like Mac, you’ll love Raine. And if you love Ian and Rake, you’ll go gaga over Mychael Eiliesor and Tam Nathrach. My Raine Benares novels are packed with adventure, intrigue, hot elves, and sexy goblins. There are sample chapters on my website (, or you can download samples at Amazon.

Try ’em, I think you’ll like ’em.


Amazon link for print version of The Myth Manifestation

The print version is starting to appear at retailers. The first up is Amazon.

Here is the link to the print version of The Myth Manifestation.

Note: It’s print-on-demand and is trade paperback size, so it costs more than the mass market version that you’re used to. We hope in the future that the printer used for POD will begin offering the mass market size, so the price will be lower.

Release day update for The Myth Manifestation

It’s finally release day for The Myth Manifestation! I understand that the ebook is releasing without problem, but the print version isn’t showing up on retail sites yet. I am checking into this and will update you *as soon as* I have an answer for you. Hang in there, it’s coming! : )

In the meantime, over at That’s What I’m Talking About, Jen has the first part of Chapter 3 for you. Chapters 1 and 2 are on my blog (just scroll down).

I’ll send out updates throughout the day.

For the audiobook lovers, The Myth Manifestation is now in post-production. As soon as I have a release date, I’ll let you know. It shouldn’t be too much longer.

The Myth Manifestation snippet for your Friday

Uncategorized Add comments

Only a few more days until Tuesday when you can get your hands on The Myth Manifestation. Here’s a snippet for your Friday. . .

The thing slammed into the bottom of the elevator, sending the car—and our legs—up a good two feet. Kenji and I had instinctively grabbed the cable, which was all that’d kept us on our feet.

Then the car kept creeping upward, as if pushed from beneath, thumps and hisses coming from all around us.

Holy crap.

I did not want to look, but I had to.

I shined my penlight against the elevator shaft.

Snakes. Plural.

Not just two, but half a dozen snakes, maybe more, trying to squirm their way up from below, pushing against each other, each one the size of my thigh and plenty big enough to crush and eat us. They were eagerly squeezing themselves though the space between the elevator car and the shaft like Play-Doh in an evil Fun Factory.

Kenji and I were in total agreement on what to do next.

We screamed.

Snippet from The Myth Manifestation & BN ebook pre-order link

Below is a snippet from The Myth Manifestation, which will be out next Tuesday, January 16.

And the ebook pre-order link from Barnes & Noble is finally live. As I’ve said, the print links will go live either Monday or Tuesday (the day of release). Sorry about that. It’s how it is when you self-pub. ; ) Audiobook is in production now.

Here’s a snippet for your Wednesday. . .

Some of the delegates were strictly nocturnal, and now was their happy hour. The other delegates fell into two camps: too pooped to party, and wide awake with worry so they might as well try to have fun.

Yes, there had been a murder committed to keep anyone from leaving. The delegates didn’t know about it, and had yet to be targeted. Since the success of the summit depended on maintaining congeniality, Vivienne Sagadraco had determined that the best way to deal with the current situation would be to carry on with the summit’s meetings as scheduled, beginning in the morning. I shouldn’t have been surprised. After all, the boss was the epitome of the whole “Keep Calm and Carry On” thing. If her tea time would not be interrupted for monsters and murder, neither would the Centennial Supernatural Summit.

Rumor had it there was one heck of a poker game going on in the room Vlad had taken for his team’s headquarters. As Ian and I headed toward the lobby, one of Vlad’s people passed us, presumably on his way to the game, and nodded a polite greeting. He had a flying monkey tucked under his arm.

“Is that the vampire version of taking a keg to a party?” I quietly asked my partner.

“More like just a growler. But yeah.”
