SOLD! Stricken (Book #2 in The Wonderful Human Hybrid World of Alexa York)

You read that right. Alexa York will live on in STRICKEN, thanks to the fabulous publishing house of Purple Sword Publications. Now whether not I’m going to keep that series name is another story. That was just me playing around because I have Harry Potter on the brain and have no clue as to why. Anyway, no word on a release date, but I’m pretty sure it’ll be some time this year. Nevertheless, you’ll know as soon as I do because I’m planning some release-day promo around that date, which will probably come with a giveaway or two.

Check out the blurb…

Personal tragedy convinces half-werewolf Alexa York to get away to the town of McCormick, Pennsylvania where she’s charged with protecting Dr. Aiden Joss, physician to the supernatural community. Not only does she need the money, she needs the distraction. Unfortunately, she gets it in spades when Joss’s personal issues and a myriad of dangerously sick patients make her new job nearly impossible.

A mysterious disease is running its way through the New York Order of the Amazons and leaving bodies in its wake. The same warrior who had chosen her clan over Joss has asked for him help. Even though the disease is real, Alexa has reason to believe his ex’s sincerity is not.

Given the other numerous problems she has to deal with that are outside of her job description, Dr. Joss might be the biggest threat to his own safety. But, protecting him comes first. That’s difficult to do when his efforts to find an antidote put everyone in his remote clinic in danger, including Alexa.

What Have I Been Up To?

ThePortalGuards_FantasyRomA lot has happened since selling The Light at the End of Judgment and Day (TLEJD) to Mocha Memoirs Press. I’ve already lined up a review tour with Goddess Fish Promotions, who handled the review tour for The Portal Guards. By the way, I can’t recommend them enough. Very professional and they offer one of the most comprehensive list of services I’ve seen in terms of book promotions and tours that fit perfectly with my hectic schedule. I’m also on the lookout for various places to do a guest post or two. ;)

And before I forget, TLEJD’s release date is 3/12/2015, so mark your calendars.

Speaking of my Portal series, the second book, The Underground Portal is complete! I haven’t handed it over to MMP yet because I’m 4,000 words over the limit. I need to perform one more round of edits to see if I can knock some of those words down to something more manageable. But, it’s done and that’s what matters. :) Next stop, a blurb.

I’m working on a couple of things right now, dividing my time between what works and what doesn’t. The Grave at the Edge of False and Prophet is an ongoing project, so no need to worry about me putting that one down just yet. I’m also looking at conventions for this year. A part of me wants to branch out and try new ones while another part of me is asking if it’w worth it. Don’t get me wrong. I like hanging out with readers and writers. But I’m better off spending that money toward promoting what I currently have out and casting a wider net for new readers. So, we’ll see.

Happy reading! :)

 

SOLD! The Light at the End of Judgment and Day

I got an early Christmas present. :) I’ve sold my novella, The Light at the End Of Judgment and Day, to Mocha Memoirs Press. Woohooooooooo! The contract is signed and we’re looking at a 3/12/2015 release date.

This is my angelic heroine Yvette Mills was first introduced was in the In the Bloodstream anthology. The Light at the End of Judgment and Day is her first, full-length story.

Here’s a quick blurb…

Violinist and angel, Yvette Mills has spent almost 200 years living among humans while rounding up ghosts to send into Judgment. Back on the mend from her last confrontation with a malevolent entity, she’s ready to reenter the classical-music scene. One problem. She’s not facing one ghost. She’s facing hundreds with a few demonic entities sprinkled in. 

Dozens of tenants have left the Folsom Building in downtown Charlotte because of the strange goings on. When Yvette’s agent goes for the bargain-basement rental prices and now has an office there, her mission is clear. Rid the building of the paranormal vermin to keep him and the few tenants left, safe. It won’t be easy when a psychic,  who’s leading a team of paranormal investigators, discovers she can see ghosts, too. 

With a job this big, Yvette will need all the help she can get. But if they discover her angelic identify, hell will become her new home.
