It’s January

Welp… It’s January. Figure it’s probably time for me to emerge from the writing cave and poke my head up on the blog a little. There’s a lot going on these days. I’ve been writing up a storm with J.R. Rain, working on edits for imminent releases, and recently finished a new MG post-apocalyptic novel, The Forest Beyond the Earth, that I’m going to take a stab into the world of self publishing with as an experiment.

Many thanks to the awesome beta readers who have (and are) reading over it while I wait for the cover and interior artists to work their magic.

Today is the release of Moon Mourning, the second in the Samantha Moon Origins series. Grab it here.

Also, the release date of The Harmony Paradox might be moving up to February!

Happy reading!

Double Release Day!

Today marks a first for me. Two novels releasing on the same day! Curiosity Quills got the idea to do a “sequels day,” so we wound up releasing the second books of two of my series concurrently. (Don’t forget the CQ’s site-wide sale is still going on so you can grab the first books in both these series for .99 in the #kindle store.

The Redeemed

The worst part about chasing one’s dream is catching it.

Six months ago, Kevin opened a Roadhouse of his own. No longer the idiot braving the dangerous post-nuclear highways of 2073, he thought he’d finally grow old and happy selling bullets, beds, and booze to those still foolish enough to get behind the wheel.

Then, he’d met her.

The white-haired outcast from the xenophobic Enclave crashed into his life, becoming the conscience he never wanted and everything he desired. She couldn’t save the world from the Virus, but she could save Kevin’s dream.

A biker gang calling themselves the Redeemed starts shooting up Roadhouses in flagrant disregard of the Code, shattering the serenity of his humble waystation. When the long-vaunted retribution of Amarillo’s army fails to materialize, Kevin feels more like a sitting duck than he ever did on the road―but it’s not his ‘house he fears losing.

Determined to protect her, he takes it upon himself to enforce the unwritten law of the Roadhouse.

The Shadow Collector

Brooklyn thought nothing would ever surprise her again after learning her father is an extraplanar being―until the police ask her for help.

For most of her life, the cops have been a thorn in her side, always in the way of a good time. By seventeen, she’d spent more time in police cars than some rookies. With age comes (a little) restraint, and she’s managed to avoid getting in trouble for six whole years. Working for the Philadelphia Fire Department offers a sense of belonging and purpose she never had growing up, even if the whole ‘adulting’ thing sucks.

After responding to a fire call eerily similar to the one that claimed her childhood home, a local detective seeks her out. He’s hunting a serial killer who preys on the city’s homeless, taking the lives of those no one cares to see. Every victim’s body has so far been stolen from the morgue, frustrating the investigation to the point he’s willing to rely on a psychic―even a former delinquent.

Brooklyn senses a connection between the recent fire, the murders, and a mysteriously guilty little girl, but her respect for the law only goes so far.

New Release | The Devil’s Eye

The Devil’s Eye (Maddy Wimsey #1) is live on #kindle! Also, on sale at .99 for a few days!

Detective Madeline Wimsey tends to stand out with her wild red hair, pentacle amulets, and offbeat methods, but she has a tool few other cops use―magic.

Maddy knows the universe wants to balance itself out, so she isn’t above tossing around a spell or two whenever a killer’s karma needs a little nudge in the right direction. As a member of a practicing coven, she’s used to strange looks, hushed whispers, and rolled eyes, but couldn’t care less what people think of her.

After a man turns up dead in a grisly satanic rite, her fellow detectives are quick to crack jokes. Since they can’t tell a pentacle from a pentagram, Maddy’s happy to get the case. She suspects the ritual to be the work of amateurs, a theory that pans out when they track down the pack of clueless high school students who made the shrine in the woods. Convinced all is not as it appears to be, Maddy asks the Goddess for a push in the right direction and learns a disturbing truth:

The Devil’s Eye is watching her.

New Release | Containment – Winter Solstice 2

I’m thrilled to announce the release of Containment, the second book in the Winter Solstice series. On #kindle now! – (Paperbacks coming soon)


Something big stirs in the murk of the Volga River, emerging at night to sow mayhem and death along the banks. Since Solstice Winters is already stranded at ground zero, she agrees to help, even though coping with giant lizards is far from her skill set as an intrepid reporter for a paranormal tabloid.

Yay for being the only elf in the world.

After narrowly escaping the Ordo Sanguinem Aeternam, she winds up sharing a flat halfway across the world from home with the enigmatic Cristiano, an agent of the secretive organization she may have obligated herself to join. He seems to know his way around the city, and he’s not bad on the eyes either.

Solstice soon realizes she’s tracking a beast the likes of which none of her father’s books have mentioned, a creature unique to Russia that her magic lacks the strength to kill. To make matters worse, the Federal Security Bureau sticks their noses into the mix.

While hunting the dangerous creature, she awakens a forgotten power in the depths of the river that has the potential to alter the course of human history―and not for the better.
