Hey guys! Speak of the Devil is LIVE!!!!!!!!!!! Check out this excerpt & celebration giveaway!

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.

Come take a virtual tour of my book Speak of the Devil!

Virtual Tour Banner

In August 2014, I took a three-day vacation out to a little town in the middle of the northwestern Arizona desert called Meadview.  There isn’t much to the town, but it changed my life and the way I look at life after only three days.  The town is only about a two-hour ride from Las Vegas and once my friend, and I arrived at the little house I had rented, all stresses melted away and the creative juices started flowing.  By the time we left the little slice of paradise to return to the big city, I had Speak of the Devil completed plotted out.  As a result, most of the book takes place in Meadview.

On April 6, 2015, while on a trip back to Las Vegas for The Novel Experience Event, my mom (aka my travel companion) and I took a little drive out to Meadview.  We snapped tons of pictures of the places I mention or describe in the book, all for the express purpose of taking you on a virtual tour of Speak of the Devil.

spoilers

I try to keep everything on my website spoiler-free, but, for the purposes of this post, that’s impossible.  However, this giant banner should be enough of a forewarning.  lol  If you have yet to read Speak of the Devil, some of this will be spoilers to you.  I am going to try my hardest to not blow anything from the book, but I wanted to warn everyone that some stuff may slip through.

So, with that, here we go!

OMG YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!! SPEAK OF THE DEVIL IS LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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?

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. 🙂
