Batman, Kevin Smith, and Andy Biersack!

Hey peeps!  Just popping in real quick to share this.  My daughter is a HUGE Black Veil Brides fan and turned me on to their music (they’re amazeballs).  Well, Andy, the uberhot and mad talented lead singer was a guest star on Fatman on Batman, the Dark Knight lovin’ comedy podcast.  If you’re just looking for his portion of the podcast, skip forward to approx 1 hour and 3 minutes.  He appears just shortly after that.  But if you dig Batman as much as I do, it’s a fantastic podcast. Check it out.  🙂  Enjoy!

Oooooh! My buddy Sarah Fine has a new urban fantasy series coming! Check out the cover!

THE FIRST BOOK IN AN EXCITING NEW URBAN FANTASY SERIES BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR SARAH FINE.

One woman is in a world of otherworldly trouble—and she’s going to have to bet her life to save humankind.

Ernestine “Ernie” Terwilliger has put her dreams aside to look after her eccentric mother. Case in point: saving her from a mysterious stranger who’s just stormed the terrified woman’s antique store wearing a rattlesnake tattoo, leveling threats, and brandishing the weirdest deck of cards Ernie’s ever seen.

When Ernie grabs some of the cards and runs, she’s launched into a world she never knew existed—one her mother may know more about than she’s revealing. With a handful of stolen cards, Ernie has just been made an unwilling player in a game of good versus evil. But she’s not even playing with a full deck, and its original owner is more than happy to kill to get his cards back.

Suddenly Ernie’s matching wits and plays with the supernatural Immortal Dealers, who can raise empires, damn souls, and shape the world’s destiny. It’s up to Ernie to defeat the most brutal member of their order. And if her roguish new ally isn’t bluffing, he can help. The mystery is all in the cards, and to save her life—and humanity—Ernie had better learn how to deal.

Guys! There’s a new Argeneau novel out by Lynsay Sands! Check out this excerpt & giveaway!

Thrilling, witty, and oh-so-sexy, Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau novel brings together a beautiful Immortal and the man who is her destiny…

For someone who’s been around for over a hundred and forty years, immortal Elspeth Argeneau hasn’t done a whole lot of living. Now that she’s moved away from her controlling mother, she’s tracking down rogue vampires and enjoying some overdue freedom. A fling would be fun. A life mate can wait. Yet to Elspeth’s surprise, her landlady’s hot grandson checks both boxes.

Wyatt fell instantly in love with Elspeth four years ago. He’s stunned to run into her again, especially as she has no memory of him. Then again, there are a lot of things about Elspeth that don’t make sense, like the miraculous speed with which her wounds heal. And the chemistry that transforms every touch into an explosion of desire. But with mysterious “accidents” besieging Elspeth, the ex-Special Forces soldier appoints himself her bodyguard. But time is running out to uncover the truth about her enemies—and rediscover the man determined to love her for eternity.

Each book in this series can be read as a standalone story.

EXCERPT

“Wyatt?” she said, surprised at how breathless her voice was.

She was panting, Elspeth realized. The man hadn’t even touched her and she was panting like an overheated dog . . . or a horny one.

“I’m sorry,” Wyatt growled, and turned away to quickly search the room, and then spotting the bath towel over the towel rack, he grabbed it and turned back to offer it to her.

Elspeth reached for it, but froze when their hands touched. For a minute, they just remained like that, both silent and still as shockwaves rolled through them, and then Wyatt cleared his throat. His voice was husky as he said, “I know you’re not ready for a life mate, and I-“

That was as far as he got before Elspeth finished taking the towel from him, let it drop to the floor, and reached for him instead.

WHISPERS IS THE ETHER, a Hellfire Anthology
Coming June 5th

THREE SHORT TALES SET IN THE HELLFIRE WORLD.

BURNING ~ Hellfire 0.5
Lucas was a typical playboy – lots of alcohol and a different girl every night. One woman brought his emotional walls and the beliefs he used to build them crumbling to the ground.  Now, an unexpected visitor is going to change both their worlds forever.

SUFFERING ~ Hellfire 1.5
Michael is left with no clue where Dez has gone. She just split. No words of explanation. No consolatory goodbyes. She just vanished into a puff of smoke. A few months have passed, and Michael can feel the weight of loneliness crushing him. Learning to embrace his exhaustion, he decides to spend New Year’s Eve curled up in the comfort of his bed.  He expected to find the sweet relief of slumber. Instead, he found only more suffering.

RECKONING ~ Hellfire 2.5 ~ Previously Unreleased
*Description Coming Soon*

 


THE DEVIL YOU KNOW, Hellfire Book One
Coming June 5th

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE.

Following a drunken night together, the vampire Michael “Vegas” Tremayne takes off with no explanation, leaving Deziree Davanzati to wonder if they’d made a terrible mistake. Rather than obsess about it, Dez spends most of her time at Onyx, the rock club she owns and operates for the supernatural citizens of New York City. All are welcome-werewolves, witches, and anyone else willing to play nice while under her roof and pay their tab at the end of the night.

After two weeks of radio silence, Vegas returns with alarming news. For the first time in more than four centuries, there is reason to believe a pureblood demon is walking among them.  They suspect someone from the the Council may be behind the creature’s return, but to what end?

With the Sentinel Stone missing, they’re down to the wire and don’t know who to trust.  Will Dez and Vegas stop the demon in time? Or will Hell itself be unleashed upon the world?

 

 


SPEAK OF THE DEVIL, Hellfire Book Two
Coming June 12th

SOME SECRETS ARE BETTER OFF LOCKED AWAY.

Dez is on the run from the covens.  Nearly six months have passed since her father, the demon Asmodeus, opened a gateway allowing countless of his kind to spill onto our plane of existence.  Using her newfound abilities to hunt down the strays, Dez’s life has become a never-ending cycle of violence and bloodshed, punctuated by the paranoia of constantly looking over her shoulder for the Council’s vampire assassin.

When she receives an unexpected phone call from an old friend, Dez makes her way to the northern Arizona desert. There she finds a message waiting for her from beyond the grave, a message forcing her to confront the one thing she’s been dreading for months.

Now Dez is haunted by a ghost from her past and faced with the secret truth of her origins. With her life and the lives of countless humans hanging in the balance, she’s forced to face off with an enemy she doesn’t even know exists. It’s time to choose her destiny and the clock is running out.

 


DANCE WITH THE DEVIL, Hellfire Book Three
Coming June 19th

NOT ALL DEMONS COME FROM HELL.

Demon hunting sucks. Dez and Vegas decide to take some time off to be normal for a while and quickly fall into their old routine, spending their evenings together at Onyx. Aside from a few unexpected developments with her magic, things are beginning to look like business as usual for the demon-witch hybrid and her vampire boyfriend.

A rash of mysterious deaths rock their neighborhood, all apparent heroin overdoses, and the NYPD suspects someone at Onyx is the source. Believing a new supernatural drug being peddled by werewolves is in fact the culprit, Vegas and Kade get involved in the investigation before the human police bite off more than they can chew.

Not everything is as it seems and Dez suspects there’s an unseen killer on the loose. With little more than a gut feeling as proof, she launches an investigation of her own in a race to find the killer before any more bodies turn up on her doorstep.

I drank the #Shadowhunters Kool-Aid…

From Helios to Hollywood

I have to start this post out with the minor caveat that I have never read the Mortal Instruments books or any of its linked series. I have tried to start City of Bones at least five times (I own the series in audio, print, and Kindle book; I blew the money in hopes that I’d get into it more if I tried it in a different format) and it just turns into a great big snoozefest. So, I gave up on it a while ago.  I think it’s her age (I don’t generally read YA), the story just doesn’t grab me.*

A few years ago, I saw the movie and loved it.  I mean, I wasn’t crazy about all of the casting, but the story itself was pretty solid.  I thought Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower were a good match together, but not knowing the series, leaving off…

Okay, the reviews from NIGHTSHADE are rolling in and I’m heaving a huge sigh of relief…

I have to admit, when I decided to write in Amazon’s Vampire Diaries KindleWorlds, I was really nervous that the second I hit publish, fandom trolls were going to come out keyboard guns blazing.  It hasn’t happened yet (knocks on every wooden surface I can find) and the reviews I’ve gotten so far have been AMAZEBALLS.  Check out some of the review snippets below!

 

A STANDALONE BONNIE BENNETT BOOK IN THE VAMPIRE DIARIES KINDLEWORLDS.

Bourbon, jazz, and streets soaked in magic. New Orleans is an infamous supernatural playground, and the perfect place for a witch to feel right at home.

When Bonnie Bennett travels to The Big Easy for some much needed rest and relaxation, she unexpectedly encounters a few familiar faces. Despite their violent history and her resulting efforts to steer clear of Mikaelson family drama, she soon finds herself agreeing to help Klaus when his brother Elijah goes missing. Assuming they could get a little aid from the local covens, they quickly realize the eldest original vampire isn’t the only mysterious disappearance in the Crescent City.

The clock is ticking. With the help of her unlikely ally and a handful of new friends from the French quarter, Bonnie must face off with a dark force fueled by vengeance and hell bent on wiping out every New Orleans witch in existence.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING…

“The storyline was so well written and captivating that I did not put my tablet down until I turned the last page.”

– 5 Stars, YA/NA Book Divas

 

“I absolutely love this addition to The Vampire Diaries, The Bennett Witch Chronicles. There are some fabulous authors included in this series with some outstanding reads. Jena Gregoire’s Nightshade Curse happens to be one of them. This book is full of mystery, suspense, intrigue, magic, action, and humor and includes appearances from two of the original vampires residing in New Orleans, Klaus and Elijah Mikaelson, as well as Bonnie’s Mystic Fall’s friends. Ms. Gregoire does a wonderful job of world building to capture your attention from the start to the end of this story. Bonnie and her friends are well written characters with a great storyline that includes lots of excitement, mystery and magic. This is a compelling book you do not want to miss out on.”
