THE HUNTERS BECOME THE HUNTED…


With the Underworld still in chaos, Hades, King of the Dead, can’t return home. His traitorous wife, Persephone, remains on the loose—and she’s not the only one. Many of the souls that Khara unwittingly released from the Oudeis have not been accounted for, including former gods, and neither have some of her father’s minions. While Khara and Oz search for Persephone, her brothers work to secure the escaped souls and discover who murdered Drew. But they soon find themselves faced with an even greater problem—one with a name they dare not speak.


Forced into shady alliances with would-be enemies, Khara must work to restore the Underworld and place her father on the throne before the world above claims him and everyone else she loves.

From UNBORN, the first installment in the series…


BORN INTO MYSTERY.  SHACKLED TO DARKNESS.


Khara has spent centuries discovering everything about the Underworld―except her place in it. But when she’s ripped from her home, solving the riddle of her origins becomes more important than ever. With evil stalking her through the dark alleys of Detroit, she finds salvation from an unlikely source: a group of immortal warriors sworn to protect the city. Khara needs their help to unravel the tangled secrets of who and what she is—secrets many seem willing to kill for. But time is running out, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer necessity binds her to an arrogant fallen angel.


Can their shaky alliance withstand that which threatens her, or will her soul fall victim to the unholy forces that hunt her―those that seek the Unborn?

Excerpt

I raced through town and into Gramps’s neighborhood. When I got to the house, there was a generic-looking sedan, not unlike the one my father used to drive, parked outside. I hadn’t even pulled all the way into the driveway before Agent Douchecanoe was out of his vehicle and headed my way, file in hand.


“So you’re the errand boy,” I said to him as he scowled at me.


“You know you can hear that environmental hazard coming from a mile away, right?”


“Weird . . . kinda like your hostility and hubris.”


His frown deepened as he extended the file in his hand toward me. I reached for it, but he pulled it back at the last second.


“Striker said to make sure you got this.”


“Hence the errandboy comment—”


“Do you know what’s in here?”


“Do you know what’s in there?” I countered, knowing damn well he would have looked. The suspense would have killed him.


“They’re copies of evidence from you father’s trial.”


“Ding, ding, ding!” I exclaimed, snatching the file from his hand. “Consider your errand complete. I’d tip you, but . . . I don’t get paid until next week.”


“Why did Striker want you to have those?” he asked, totally unfazed by my jab.


“Because I asked for them.”


He shook his head.


“That’s adorable. You think you can find something that a defense lawyer and a team of FBI agents couldn’t find.”


“They weren’t really looking, though, were they? They approached his investigation as if he was already guilty. Hard to be objective when your singular focus is to bring down the fall guy.”


“Says the girl with the singular focus of freeing her daddy,” he replied. “What a sad day it’s going to be for you when all you find in those files is the truth of your father’s guilt.”


“We’ll see about that.”

How in the hell did I end up here?

It’s been a LOOOONG time since I’ve written a blog post, primarily because I’ve been busy writing books instead. When you had a fixed amount of time to write at all, you learn how to prioritize–quickly. So now, with my trade debut hitting shelves in three months and twenty indie/APub titles available online, I thought I had earned a hot second to write something else. Something involving NON-fictional characters for once (mainly me).


I’m sure the voices in my head will be thrilled with this idea.


If you’d asked me in 2009 when i started toying with the notion of writing a book that i would one day have sold hundreds of thousands of books and have some in stores, i would have taken your temperature and asked if you were well. Never in my life did i think to myself “hey….i think i want to be a writer.” Not even once. Writing seemed like such an intangible job; something you did if you were super artsy and hung out in coffee shops and waxed poetic about things that i didn’t notice and couldn’t have cared less about. That was my perception, and, as it so often does, became my reality. So i went through school with a science focus and got my doctorate instead. That seemed the sensible, responsible thing to do.


And i love that career. I wouldn’t give it up.


But what i didn’t realize while i zoned out in organic chemistry and neuroanatomy (FYI: not the best classes to zone out in), thinking about dreams I’d had that i wanted to keep reliving was that my “imagination” was really my creativity trying to come through (sometimes in not so subtle ways). I’d always been a daydreamer–i thought everyone was. I thought it was normal to create stories in your head all day long, to use your thoughts as a means to escape the boring, the mundane, or, on occasion, the unbearable. So i never thought anything of this until i was in my mid-thirties and pregnant, and having the CRAZIEST dreams ever. I wondered if maybe i should try to capture some of them on paper. With a little help from a friend, who basically dared me to do it (i don’t back down from those easily unless they involve deep water…or clowns), I started writing what would turn out to be the first book i ever published. CAGED was eventually uploaded to Amazon at the end of 2011. I thought, “well, that was fun,” and never expected anyone to ever buy it.


One month later, it took off.


Three months later, it had sold 35000 copies.


So about that time, i remember sitting in my kitchen with my husband, thinking HOLY SH*T…this is a thing! I’m a writer! How the in the hell did i get here?


I continued to self-publish until 2013 when i signed a deal with Amazon Publishing’s 47North imprint. The next evolutionary step in my publishing career–now, i was a hybrid author. One foot on either side of the publishing divide (and, MAN, is there a divide, but that’s a post for another day…).


I got an agent around 2014, one who had been a fan before she even started her career. Choosing Jess was easy, and I’ve never doubted it was the right one. She understood who i was as an author and how i wanted to write/publish. I can’t even begin to tell you how important that is to me.


And it was her understanding of who i am that was crucial in matching me up with my current editor. We pitched her two different fantasy novels before she asked if i wrote any YA (which, at the time, i didn’t). I’d had an idea for a series that i never expected to get to write. But we pitched her the idea and she loved it. I wrote the book exclusively for her and it was picked up two months later. In 2016, i got my fist Big Five publishing deal.


Look out world, they’re gonna put my words on a bookstore shelf!


While I’m patiently waiting for that book to release September 4, 2018, it made me think about me unconventional road to this point. I wanted to share that story for any aspiring writers who might happen to come across it. There is NO ONE WAY TO PUBLISH. You don’t have to know from the moment you’re born that you want to be a writer. You don’t have to fit a certain stereotype. It’s okay if you have a day job. It’s okay if you like to write at night in front of the TV or at the coffee shop around the corner. You can write quickly or slowly. You can be a plotter or pantser (#TeamPantser). It really doesn’t matter. What DOES matter is that you write. Yeah, it won’t likely be pretty at first; Lord knows mine wasn’t. Show me someone who claims they wrote a beautiful first draft of anything and i’ll show you a liar. It’s a PROCESS–not a clear cut destination. But, if you’re at all like me, a kid whose head loved to escape to the clouds–who found refuge in her own mind–then maybe, just maybe, you should join me on this journey.


Who knows… maybe yours will turn out just as crazy as mine.

Dead Zone is LIVE!

TRY TO GET OUT ALIVE…


In the seedy underbelly of the Chicago supernatural scene is a club that no one talks about. The Patronus Ceteri have tolerated it for decades, but when club-goers start dying, the self-appointed protectors of the balance can’t let it go. To get to the bottom of what’s happening there, Sapphira, their newest and most powerful member, must ally herself with a wolf she’s not sure she can trust, a troll she’s been forbidden to see, and a ghost who can’t speak.


But that’s not her only problem. Her psychotic ex has returned, threatening to expose her secrets to those who can hurt her the most. Even more than the killer on the loose.

EVE OF ETERNAL NIGHT is live!!!

All Eve Carmichael wants is to graduate from college and move on with her life.


But when she witnesses a murder on campus, her life takes an unexpected turn. Especially when there’s no evidence a crime ever happened the next day, and the five men responsible disappeared into thin air.


As she tries to unravel the mystery behind the disappearing homicide, she finds herself on a dark–and familiar path. With no-one else to trust, she seeks the help of an unlikely—but alluring—group of men.


For better or worse, the rocker, the wanderer, the student, the therapist, and the advisor all have a part to play in her destiny. Hopefully they can awaken her to the danger closing in before Eve gets herself killed.


THE ZODIAC CURSE is an enticing new reverse harem urban fantasy world featuring two tandem series – Harem of Shadows by Amber Lynn Natusch and Harem of Light by C.N. Crawford.
