Best of the season to everyone – since my mother’s visiting and I’m up to my eyes in family stuff I’ll probably make this the last post of the year…

First, thank YOU for visiting my blog! It’s been great to get feedback on my thoughts, my rants and be able to show off my faboo books – I’ve been invited to be a monthly blogger at Paranormal Romantics in addition to my other blogging at Beyond the Veil and Here Be Magic and I hope you’ll come on over and visit me and all the other great authors at all these blogs!

It’s been a great year – I finished off the “Blaze of Glory” trilogy with the last book releasing in ebook form in October and the print edition of the second book coming out just in the last month – and with the Origins Game Fair having the theme of “superheroes” for the gaming convention I’m looking forward to being there with a tableful of books!

In addition I’ve started off a whole new series at Carina Press with “Blood of the Pride” in February and the sequel coming out in a month on January 21st – “Claws Bared” will be the second book with the third, “Family Pride” tentatively scheduled for June 2013 – and both Blood books are going to be available in audiobook format. “Blood of the Pride” will also be available for a limited time in paperback form thanks to Harlequin picking it up for their DTC line in February so I’ll be posting when you can lay your hot little hands on Bran and Reb’s first adventure in paper form off the HQN website!

2013 looks like a busy year with three books in the “Blood of the Pride” series coming out and the final paperback of “Heroes Lost and Found” due next fall – and who knows where we’ll go from there???

Thanks to everyone for coming along on the ride and I hope you’ve enjoyed and continue to enjoy my attempts to entertain you with a wee bit o’mind candy!

Blaze of Glory – FREE!

You heard it here, folks!

Samhain Publishing has decided to make the first book in my superhero trilogy, “Blaze of Glory”, FREE from September 1 – 14th.

*****

Saving the world is easy for a superhero—unless you’re a fraud.

Jo Tanis is a superhero, fighting evil on the city streets, using her ability to feed off electromagnetic energy and fire off charges—and it’s all just a show. The Agency captures her and others like her when their powers begin to manifest, pitting them against each other in staged, gladiatorial fights. An explosive implant on the back of her neck assures she’ll keep right on smiling for the camera and beating up the bad guys.

When Earth comes under attack, suddenly the show becomes deadly real. Unable to deal with a real alien, the “supers” are falling in droves. Millions of innocent civilians are going to die…unless Jo can cobble together a team from among the fake heroes and villains the Agency enslaved. Including Hunter, who not only promises to show her how to deactivate the implants, but seems to know more than he should about how the mysterious Agency operates.

Forcing a rag-tag bunch of former enemies to work together is the least of Jo’s problems. The trick is determining if Hunter is friend or foe—and becoming the hero everyone thought she was before the world is destroyed for real.

Here are the links!

If you’ve been waiting to try out the series now’s a great time to check it out!
The second book is also available and the last book, “Heroes Lost and Found” will be out in October – but why not grab the first one now and start reading?

Six Sentence Sunday – “Blaze of Glory”

We’re coming up on our September surprise – and with the last book of the “Blaze of Glory” trilogy coming out in October I thought we’d head on back to the superhero world of Jo Tanis and Hunter Dillon!

 ******

A tall man moved out of the darkness, a knife waving back and forth in the dim moonlight. “Give me your wallet.”

I smiled, pulling together the power and concentrating it into the palms of my gloves. “Sure…” The thin hairs on the back of my neck stood up as I reveled in the familiar feeling. “Come on closer and I’ll toss it to you…”

******

 

Be sure to come on back at the start of September and see what’s up!

Enjoy your Sunday and all the other great authors and books out there!

Pleased to announce…

I’m pleased, thrilled and tickled pink to announce I’ve signed a contract with Carina Press for THREE more books in the “Blood of the Pride” series!

 The first sequel, “Claws Bared”, will be arriving in January 2013 with two more stories about the adventures of Rebecca and Brandon coming in June and October 2013!

“Claws Bared”

In the few months since Rebecca Desjardin met Brandon Hanover her life’s turned upside down – but the bills still need to be paid. When a job comes her way from Jess, her Felis overseer, she’s reluctant to take it but needs the cash and needs to see justice done.

Mike Hansa is dead, seemingly murdered by a jealous Felis woman at the strip club where he worked. Now Reb must not only tread through local Felis politics to find a killer but deal with her own feelings as a Felis man appears on the scene to court her away from Brandon. As she sorts out the truth from the lies she finds herself in danger and risks losing everything – including Brandon.

Looking forward to bringing you all along for the ride and thanks for your support so far!

Six Sentence Sunday – “Blood of the Pride”

I’m tickled pink at the chance to continue this series with Carina Press – the second book is set for a March 2013 release and I’m bashing away at the third book with a fourth in the planning stages.

So for those of you who have missed it (and where were you?) here’s a bit of where it all started from!

******

“You knew one part of me.”

“I knew enough.” His lips grazed my earlobe, stopping to tug lightly on the delicate skin. “What you were before, what I was before, that doesn’t matter in the long run. It shouldn’t matter. It’s what we are now, where we go from here that defines us.”

******

And if you’re going to be at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio – stop on by to say hello and grab a discount coupon for “Blood of The Pride“! Hope to meet some of you there!

More “Blood of The Pride”? Yes, please!

I’m thrilled to announce the sale of the sequel to “Blood of The Pride” to Carina Press, tentatively set for a March 2013 release!

Book 2:

In the few months since Rebecca Desjardin met Brandon Hanover her life’s turned upside down – but the bills still need to be paid. When a job comes her way from Jess, her Felis overseer, she’s reluctant to take it but needs the cash and needs to see justice done.

Mike Hansa is dead, seemingly murdered by a jealous Felis woman at the strip club where he worked. Now Reb must not only tread through local Felis politics to find a killer but deal with her own feelings as a Felis man appears on the scene to court her away from Brandon. As she sorts out the truth from the lies she finds herself in danger and risks losing everything – including Brandon.

I’m tickled pink at the idea of continuing the adventures of Rebecca and Brandon and hope you’ll all come along for the ride…

… and if you have no idea what I’m talking about – here’s Blood of The Pride at Amazon and Barnes & Noble if you want to catch up!

It’s been a great year so far – and thanks to everyone who’s helped make it that way – now to get ready for Origins 2012!

 

Going to Origins Game Fair this year? Me too!

About a decade ago I was searching for something that the Wookie and I could do for our anniversary – something a bit different. And legal. At least in Pennsylvania.

It was a delight to find the Origins Game Fair only a few hours away in Columbus, Ohio. We made a few preliminary one-day blitzes to see if it was to our liking and as time went on, made it a yearly trip with a hotel stay and everything.

We’re both gamers, to a degree – I cut my teeth on 1st Ed. AD&D and went on to enjoy Battletech, Wings of War/Glory, etc. He’s been an RPG boy from practically birth and loves Heroclix, Pathfinder and Memoir ’44 so we really look forward to every year’s trip.

But this year is different – I’ve been lucky enough to be included in the Library Track, the fast-growing area dedicated to authors both in and outside of the gaming field.

I’ll be on the “Tradition!” panel, the “Building Your World” panel on Friday and the “Flash Us, Part 2” panel on Saturday. And when I’m not getting soundly thomped by a ten-year old in various games, I’ll be at my table in the Library area inside the Dealers’ Hall offering print copies of “Blaze of Glory” and “Wild Cards and Iron Horses” along with discount coupons for “Blood of The Pride”!

So if you’re going to be in the area at the end of the month and looking to get some faboo gaming time in along with a great dealers’ room… and, oh, yes – some fantastic writing seminars with the likes of Mike Stackpole and others, drop on by and say hello!
