About this author

I hate talking about myself in the third person--feels too much like a eulogy and I'm not dead yet. So here it goes, one biography coming up.

Humor, be it light or dark, is critical to my mental health. Add a dash of snark, a little suspense and an occasional murder and you've found my literary voice. Oh, and smexy. Can't forget the smexy. My theory is a kiss should be meaningful regardless of length, a hero can say as much with a well-written look as he can with a long-winded paragraph, and heroines are meant to hold their own. She's no Cinderella and Shakespeare wrote the only Romeo and Juliet, so I stick to women who can save themselves and tortured heros who are loathe to let them. If we can find a little, or a lot, of romance along the

Hi, Mel!

Actually, no, there are (about) 5 more books slated in this series. The next one is RETRIBUTION, and I'm hoping to have it out around the end of the year (or so). These books take quite a bit longer to write because I write them for the sheer joy of writing. Don't get me wrong! I enjoy everything I write, but if I have something contracted, I have to write it first. I'm thinking of serializing the next book (RETRIBUTION) and selling it for $0.99 a month for, say, 5 or 6 chapters. But we'll see. The most important thing is that I give you the best book I can.

Also, under my pseudonym (Kelli Ireland), I'm releasing a new urban fantasy series called The Key Guardians. And book one is titled RAISING CAIN. It comes out April 7 (digital only) but is my favorite book **ever**! There are five, maybe 6, books in that series, and it's moving right along re: getting them written.

I'll keep you posted on my progress with RETRIBUTION, though. I promise. And as soon as I have even a rough release date, I'll post it here so you know.

I hope you enjoy the books!

"So gentle and absolutely powerful. This novella will grab you with the first pages. Fluid and humorous, the characters are sexy, the dialogue is sharp and the world is set up perfectly. Not your average paranormal and a great steamy read!"

message 10: by Denise

Denise (buries face in hands) Oh, man. I definitely didn't mean for you to check out my books! Just thought it would be fun to chat. Thanks for such a nice response, though. :)


Candace Thank you so much for your sweet email and for the support. I look forward to checking out your books! :-)


Denise Thanks for recommending my books! And WOW! There is NO higher compliment than to hear a reader has re-read your books. It's awesome! I'm grinning like crazy.. :)

Legacy will be out in paperback on September 5, 2012, and Wrath will be out on March 3, 2013.

I have new series I'm working on right now that I hope you'll enjoy just as much. I'm not sure when it will be released, but I'll be sure to keep you posted.

Thank you again for you kind words.

All my best,
Denise

Hi Ecyojrn!
I'm SO, SO sorry I missed this message! First, let me thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love of the Niteclif Evolutions. The characters are all very special to me and to know you love them? I just melt inside. It makes me incredibly happy. :)

There are several more books planned for the series. The next in the series, Vengeance, should be out around March 2013. You can watch my website for updates and snippets.

Again, thank you so very much for reaching out to me. May you continue to love the characters as much as I do. Feel free to email me anytime, either through Goodreads or my contact form on my website.

Wishing you many happy reads,
Denise

I'm reading it over and over again. I just can't move on. :)
BTW, am recommending your book to my friends by persuading them on buying Legacy's Ebook format.
Am from the Philippines and I'm raiding most of the bookstores here but i can't find any paperback issues of your book.

More power to you and I'll be looking forward to any future stories you'll be writing.

Thanks!
