The final countdown is ON! Here’s some excerpty goodness! #WhispersInTheEther

Okay, kids.

The countdown is on.

As of right now, we’re down to less than 2 days before the Hellfire series launch begins with the release of Whispers in the Ether (a Hellfire world anthology) and The Devil  You Know (Hellfire book one). I’m not going to take up too much of your time tonight because I am eyebrow deep in the draft polishing of Dance With the Devil (it goes off to my editor this week!) but figured I would do a little excerpt-laden drive by.  🙂

Whisper in the Ether features a brand new short story called Reckoning. This story introduces you to a whole new cast of characters, all of which will play starring roles in my upcoming Executioner series. In this excerpt, you get to see Jamie Hayes, the Executioner female lead, and Marcel Cross, the alpha of the Manhattan werewolf pack.

Enjoy!

“You’re the head honcho, right?” I looked up from my phone to find the cute blonde from the alleyway sitting across from me. I’d been so engrossed in my book I hadn’t noticed her sit down. I hit the power button and gave her my full attention.

“Excuse me?”

El jefe? The Big Cheese? The Don?” I continued to stare at her, waiting for the real question. She huffed out of a frustrated sigh and rested her arms on the table, leaning in toward me. “Look,” she demanded, slamming a twenty dollar bill down on the table, “you’re in charge of that motley band of assholes, are you not?” I peeked around her to see Dylan and Ace having a bromancey high five over something almost certainly stupid.

“I am,” I admitted begrudgingly.

“Good, then this is for you.” She slid the twenty toward me.  “Your next few drinks are on me if you promise to keep that one,” she turned and pointed to Ace, “in line. If you don’t, I will.” Although she didn’t explain further, the warning was clear.

At first, I chuckled imagining her giving him a face full of liquor, but then I remembered the throwing blades. Provided they’re not made of silver, they wouldn’t do much to him except maybe teach him a lesson. Not a bad idea.

“Did he touch you?” I asked, worried he’d already overstepped his bounds.

“No, you would know if he did. Keep his ass in line. I’m not in the mood, and it’s, like, your job or whatever.”

Without another word, she scooted out of the booth and walked away, leaving the twenty behind. I watched as she made her way to a seat at the far end of the bar away from the bulk of the crowd. Not thirty seconds after she sat down, Ace made like he was going to try his luck with her, but Dylan spotted me glaring at him. He grabbed Ace’s arm before he could get too far and pulled him in to whisper something in his ear. Ace turned to me, wide eyed, and nodded in obedience. I tipped my hat in thanks and returned my attention to the sexy mystery girl. Only her chair was empty.

Her glass and her jacket were both gone.  I glanced around the bar, but didn’t see her anywhere. Probably for the best.

 

 

A Personal Note from Jena and COCKTALES, a limited-release anthology to benefit authors impacted by #cockygate!

Good afternoon, readers!  I don’t normally include a personal note on new release announcements but this one actually hits home for every author out there, no matter the genre. As you may have heard, an author by the name of Faleena Hopkins made the very poor choice to trademark a common use word (cocky) and then set out on a warpath, her sights laser locked on any author with the word ‘cocky’ in their book or series title. #Cockygate was born and the author community at large—not just romance authors…..everybody—rained down FIRE. Go ahead, search that hashtag on any social media site or on Google and you will see a FLOOD of content. And none of it is in defense of the author’s trademark….

There is a great write up you can read here that lays out what initially happened, the AMAZING people who’ve gotten involved to have the trademark cancelled, and the many, many dominoes that have fallen since the news broke. Additionally, here is another write up from the same source who outlines how Hopkins has since doubled down on the stupidity factor by filing a few lawsuits, one of which is blaming the author/retired lawyer who filed the petition to cancel her trademark for loss of sales citing the questionable intelligence of readers and their ability to discern one cover from another. …. ….. ……  Yes, you read that right. (Faleena, honey, that loss was purely self-inflicted.  You’re the only one who doesn’t get it.)

I watched all of this unfold in abject horror. As a writer, the precedent her trademark sets is staggering and opens the door for lawsuits to start flying back and forth like CRAZY.  However, I feel confident thanks to Kevin Knuepper’s Petition to Cancel. If you read through that document, his argument is rock solid and I don’t see how anyone with common sense could possibly deny his request. But the unfortunate truth is that until that petition gets approved, she holds the legal trademark and using the word is risky. So, cross your crossables, kids. And when her trademark gets slapped down for the ridiculousness that it is, we’ll all celebrate with midnight margaritas.  😉

From a purely petty point of view, I genuinely don’t understand how this woman felt her brand was in any way, shape, or form “threatened” given that out of the countless authors and readers I’ve spoken with about this since it broke, NO ONE KNEW WHO THE HELL SHE WAS. No one. Not one single person I talked to said, “Oh yeah, I’ve heard of her.” Not one. Not until the day she tried to pull a fast one on a community that strongly believes in lifting one another up instead of cutting one another off at the knees. Good luck, Ms. Hopkins. You’re going to need it.

The reason I’m writing to you today is to tell you about this wonderful anthology. It’s only available for a limited time, features a TON of awesome names, and all of the proceeds are going to help those impacted by the #cockygate scandal.  I strongly encourage you all to go out to your favorite ebook retailer and just read the Forward (it’s the first thing available when you read the sample).  It takes all of two minutes to read through and really shows the kind of impact this had on just ONE of the many authors who’v been blindsided by this situation. Hers is a wonderful story of finding your tribe and what can happen when this community comes together to rally around those who are legitimately being wronged.

I’m beyond proud to be part of that community.

Guys! Amber Lynn Natusch has a new release today, too! #DeadZone #KindleUnlimited

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.

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.

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 #AmWriting Preorder Link is NOW LIVE!!!!!!!! A Collection of Letters to Benefit @TheWayneFDN

Good morning, bibliojunkies! Just a few months ago, this was just an idea tossed around between some friends, and today, we’re one step closer to seeing it in print.  🙂  #AmWriting’s preorder link is officially live!  I’m so excited about this project, and so are all the wonderful authors who contributed their words to make it happen.  Not only do the proceeds benefit The Wayne Foundation, our hope is that the book itself will encourage other artists.  Good juju all around!  🙂

I wont be around much today.  I have a long list of PR work to do for some new clients who came on board, and then I am working on formatting the print and ebook versions of #AmWriting.  That’s a new experience for me as well, but I started it a few nights ago, and I am soooooooooo happy with how it’s coming out.  Cant wait for you guys to see it!  🙂

I have a super-huge favor to ask of you guys.  The #AmWriting project has a HeadTalker campaign open for release day.  If you’re not familiar with how it works, HeadTalker is what’s called a crowd-sourcing platform.  You give a one-time authorization for your social media account to allow Headtalker to post our campaign message at the end of the campaign (the message for this campaign announces that #AmWriting is released). It’s an automated process, so that’s all you have to do. It’s a quick, painless way to help support authors and get the word out about this great project, and it doesn’t cost a dime.  🙂  If you’d like to support the campaign, you can do so by clicking this link.  On the campaign page, you can support it with your Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and/or LinkedIn.  🙂  That’s it.  Just the click of a button.  🙂

Okay, I’m off.  LOTS of work to do today.  🙂  Happy Hump Day, bitches!  😉

Knowing what you know now of writing, publishing, and putting your art out into the world, if you could go back to the day you sat down to start typing in your very first manuscript, what words would you offer to yourself?  Words of encouragement?  Words of advice?  Caution against certain pitfalls?  Would you change anything about how you got to where you are today?

The publishing community is so much bigger than it was before the self-publishing boom and it continues to grow exponentially every day.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a handbook or support group.  #AmWriting is a collection of letters written by authors from all different corners of the publishing community.  The letters provide words of encouragement or advice to those just starting out or those who have become discouraged in their art.  At Pure Textuality PR, we believe in supporting each other as a community, and we felt this project would be a good way to bring writers together and maybe give some new artists just the right nudge to keep going.

100% of the net proceeds of #AmWriting will be donated to The Wayne Foundation, a charity dedicated to offering aid and services to young women victimized by illegal sexual exploitation and the sexual trafficking of minors.  For more information about The Wayne Foundation, you can visit them on the web at http://waynefdn.org.
