Dance With the Devil Teaser #1

Okay, I’m going to start dropping these all the way up to the release of Dance With the Devil.  Here’s the first one.  🙂  Enjoy!

Dance With the Devil Teaser 1

DanceWithTheDevil_amazonDemon hunting sucks.

Dez and Vegas decide to take the summer off to relax and be a normal couple for once. They quickly fall back into their old routine, mostly evenings spent together at Onyx. The nightclub for the supernatural denizens of New York City now hosts live bands and DJ’s nightly, and Dez is elated to find the club at capacity seven days a week.

Everything seemed perfect…until it wasn’t.

Without warning, their cozy life together gets tipped on its axis. Dez isn’t acting like herself, and Vegas believes something mystical is to blame.

Will Vegas get to the bottom of things before it’s too late, or will he lose her forever?

Good afternoon, you sexy peeps!

Here’s the picture that popped into my head when I said sexy peeps, and also resulted in the title of this post:2347160738_80369de88a

Anywho…

This morning, I had a long list of Pure Textuality PR to-do’s to bang out, and then I was planning to hop right into working on Dance With the Devil between calls at the day job.

But before I do that, I decided to have a little fun here on my bloggy blog today.

In the picture, the bronze bracelet looks gold, but in person, it’s a lot darker color than what you’re seeing in the picture.

Not 5k words, but I’ll take it! #amwriting #wordcount

Okay, my loves!  I’m officially out of steam for the night.  I’m clocking in at a final word count of 2,817 on the WIP.  Combine that with the 1,543 from my earlier blog post, and that brings today’s writing total to 4,380 words.  It’s not the 5,000 I was hoping for, but I’ll take it.

It’s funny.  I’m not there yet, but the thing I’m working the hardest on is the ending.  Like, I’m writing the final chapter, but I still have to write the whole MIDDLE of the book.  lol  The ending is probably the longest chapter I’ve every written, but it’s a huge moment.  It’s pivotal.  This one chapter shapes the spinoff, the Executioners Guild series.  The more it comes together, the more excited I’m getting for this series to start.  I already have about 15,000 word written in Bad Wolf, the first installment of that series, and I cannot WAIT for you all to meet Jimi.  She’s soooooooo much fun to write.  She’s me, enough sarcasm and snark for a lifetime, but way more of a bad ass than I could ever be.  The ending of Bad Wolf is already all mapped out, and that shit is going to suckerpunch you right in the feels.  It’s a raw, messy ending, but it’s totally worth it.

That’s it for now, my loves!  I’m off to dream of Jason Momoa, sandy beaches, and tasty alcoholic beverages in coconuts with cute little umbrellas.  Good night and lots of hugs!  Talk to you all tomorrow!  *smoooooch*

Break time with Jason Momoa. #amwriting

Evening, peeps!  I’m on a writing binge tonight, and since I’m taking a brief break, I thought I’d check in and say hi.

Got myself a glass of wine, my house smells AMAZEBALLS thanks to dinner in the crock pot, and I’m in a spectacular mood.  The absolutely beautiful Mr. Momoa is here for inspirational purposes.   *wink wink* 

I’m going for 5,000 words before I go to bed tonight.  I’m at 1,346 so far.  I’ll let you guys know where I finish.  Wish me luck!

Dance With the Devil and My Cat’s Nuts

Good morning, my loves!  I feel like I need to clarify something right out the gate.  The title of this post is Dance With the Devil (obviously, you know what that is about) and My Cat’s Nuts.  I felt I should just get out of the way right now that we are using Cat’s in the possessive sense, as in the nuts are belonging to my cat, and not some backwoods contraction of “Cat is.”  Well…….I guess it could go that way as it is a fitting description of his mental state, but that’s not where I was going with this.

Let me explain….

EBOOK DEAL ALERT! Speak of the Devil is only $0.99 today and tomorrow only!

Blitz Banner
ebookcover72dpiNearly half a year has passed since Asmodeus opened the gateway allowing an unknown number of demons to spill onto our plane of existence. A fatal standoff has left Dez on her own to hunt the stray demons down and send them back to Hell where they belong. Her life has become a never-ending cycle of violence and bloodshed, further tainted by a deepening depression and a longing for the person she had to leave behind.

When Dez receives an unexpected phone call, she makes her way to the northern Arizona desert to see an old friend. Upon arrival, there is a message waiting for her from beyond the grave, and she realizes before she can go any further, she must face the one thing she’s been dreading for months. To make matters worse, the message is meant to help her mission, but it forces Dez into an impossible choice.

Only Dez can decide which road to take, but will she be able to handle the consequences of her decision?

Want to know what I am up to???

AFTERNOON, MINIONS!!!!

I finally have a chance to breathe and wanted to stop in to give you all an update on how things are coming along, both with my writing and life in general.

As you know, Suffering and Speak of the Devil have both been unleashed upon the masses. Now I wait. Reviews are just starting to roll in, and I am happy to report they’ve all been pretty frikkin stellar. Speak of the Devil is getting a very warm reception and I am super-excited to have paperbacks in my hands soon (I ordered the proofs yesterday!!!!).

My one-month break from writing plain and simply didn’t happen. It’s not a bad thing, though! I started working on Dance With the Devil (Demon Legacy #3) before Christmas and shortly after New Years, I started on Bad Wolf.  What is Bad Wolf, you ask????  Keep reading to find out!

Suffering Official CoverMichael 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.

Previously released in bestselling urban fantasy anthology The Stroke of Midnight, Suffering is a short story in the Demon Legacy series. The story takes place between the events of The Devil You Know (Demon Legacy #1) and Speak of the Devil (Demon Legacy #2).

COVER REVEAL: Suffering has a new face! And it gets re-released on January 20th!

Good afternoon, minions!!!  I just wanted to pop in real quick to do an impromptu cover reveal.  As you know, my Demon Legacy short story Suffering was in an anthology I published with a bunch of other urban fantasy authors.  I published the anthology as a free download for readers.  The deal made with the participating authors was the anthology would be available for free for one year.  Once the year is up, everyone was welcome to publish the story elsewhere however they would like.  Now that The Stroke of Midnight is no longer available, I can re-release Suffering all on its own.  Of course, that meant it needed a new cover.  So, without further ado, the cover for Suffering, re-releasing January 20th!

Awwww, you guuuuuuys!!! Speak of the Devil feedback is IN!!!

MINIONS!!!!!! I have feedback from 3 betas so far, another one coming very soon, and one more at the end of the week. The 3 I have so far – GREAT FEEDBACK. Everyone has loved the book so far!!! I love this story soooooooooo much, and I am so happy to see others do, too.

I have a very personal tie to so many things in this book because it was inspired by a town I spent some vacation time in, Meadview AZ. It’s out in the middle of nowhere in the northern Arizona desert, right next to the western rim of the Grand Canyon. I spent three days there, and the entire time, I was just in a continuous state of awe over my surroundings. It’s such a beautiful, peaceful place. I genuinely feels like magic. There are no restaurant chains or oil change places. There are no street lights. There is no traffic. Just you, a jaw-dropping view of the Grand Wash cliffs during the day, and the most expansive view I have ever witnessed of the night sky. Now, I live *sort of* out in the country, so I see a SHIT TON of stars on a clear night here. In comparison to Meadview, my normal view of the night sky looks like a cloudy view of midnight in a smog-filled Los Angeles. lol In Meadview, there are so many stars, you’re unable to stop staring at it. It’s absolutely mesmerizing. Ugh.

Going there was life changing for me. I never thought, in my life, I would say I would be willing to move to a remote place like that. Now, the only reason I wouldn’t move there, is my teenage daughter would KILL me. lol I genuinely fell in love with that place, and I will absolutely go there again someday. Who knows! That may be where I retire to.

The storyline from Speak of the Devil was largely inspired by a seed idea my friend Ron gave me when we were driving back to the house we rented for our vacation. In a space of 10 minutes, we brainstormed it a bit, expanded on it, and when I went home, I wrote the story around it. Writing Speak of the Devil has been like mentally hanging out in Meadview for the last year. Sigh…. So, yeah, I love this book. So much. Below is a picture of the sunrise view of the Grand Wash cliffs I took one more while sipping coffee on the deck at 6:30am.

Dreamy, right?

Anyway, I am excited about the beta reactions. I will have 5 betas for feedback on the story and it’s a pool of people I very much trust the option of. They’re a mix of writers, bloggers, and readers, all with very particular taste (not just paranormal romance freaks). I am confident I am getting hard, honest feedback as none of these people are “yes”-men. I was more nervous about sending it to these people than anyone who will read it. lol That they are greenlighting the majority of the book has me beside myself. 🙂 The one thing I have received for “you need to ticker with this part” feedback has been a part of the book I had already suspected was going to need it when I sent the ARC to the team. Having that be the only thing they felt needed work feels indescribable. 🙂

So, I will keep you guys posted. I *should* still have the release date announced on Friday. I will see how my tinkering. 🙂
