New Release: Angel of Reckoning

Angel of ReckoningIt’s finally here, the 4th book in my Reclaiming Honor series with Michael Anderle – and that’s right, it’s vampire post-apoc! Fun stuff 🙂

We’ve done a lot to get here, and it’s been amazing to go on this journey that has now set me up to go fulltime as an author. What does that mean? Much more to come!

Stay tuned.  (more…)


HOUNDS OF LIGHT – Book Launch!

Hounds of LightIt’s here at long last, the sequel to Hounds of God (and on the same day as the launch of the book 1 Audiobook) – HOUNDS OF LIGHT.

Take some magic, add some werewolves and vampires, and you’ve got yourself my new book. BAM!

Hope you all enjoy it 😉

Hounds of Light – Book Description

A dark temple of vampires. An army of werewolves. One woman to stand against them all.

Katherine thought that by taking on the leader of the Hounds of God, she’d be done with them. She didn’t know that the werewolf influence had spread deep throughout the country, and maybe the world.

Hunting down werewolves is one thing, but when a dark vampire comes calling, they find they must seek help.

Will Katherine and her new clan of two werewolves and a half-vampire be enough to take on such levels of evil?

Publishing Update: Group Promos

Falls of Redemption - BoxsetEver try to jump start something old? Since Justice is Calling (Reclaiming Honor) launched so well, I figured I’d do the with my Falls of Redemption trilogy – and Jason Rice was awesome enough to set up a group $0.99 promo.

It’s been going pretty damn well! Am I losing money? I don’t know, but the book is up to 3,297 and has a few newsletters going out tomorrow and the next day, along with a Bargainbooksy tomorrow, sitting at #6 in Military Fantasy 🙂 So I’m freaken thrilled! LOVE YOU fellow writers and readers. Just gotta keep plugging away — now to see if the extra attention makes a difference/ if it sticks.




deathbound-2*NOTE: This is from a later chapter

The world was pulled downward and into the afterlife. Rohan knew instantly where he was. He would never forget the dry air, the morbid feeling that had overcome him—as it did once again.

A fleet of tormented souls moved through the house like a river of flames, screaming and wailing. The walls of the house, under pressure from the descent, began to crack.

Rohan’s first instinct was to run, to save himself, but then he saw that Nora was standing in the middle of the flames, face in her hands as if she couldn’t believe what was happening. Leaving her behind was not an option, so he stumbled toward her, doing his best to fight the strange, dizzying sensation in his body. His arms were hard to move, numb and tingling, as if they had become atrophied.

“Come with me, now!” he shouted, and ran for her.

But when he grabbed her wrist, she pushed him back, screaming.

“Stay back, monster!” she shouted. “What have you done?” (more…)

The Dark Knights: A King Arthur Vampire Fantasy

The Dark KnightsAnyone out there like vampires, fantasy, and King Arthur? I thought I’d combine all of those for you, and the result was this little story of awesomeness – The Dark Knights:  A King Arthur Vampire Fantasy. It’s a short story for now, with the idea that, if enough people like it and get behind it, I’ll do the novel.

So, if you’re interested – you can get it for FREE on #Instafreebie. Pretty cool, right? You just sign up for my newsletter, so we can stay in touch and I can tell you about other freebies and deals.


Featured Author Spotlight on Instafreebie with Death Marked

Children’s Book Back by Sunrise Free

Back by Sunrise - Award WinnerI’ve recently decided to list BACK BY SUNRISE as free on Amazon and other channels, with its sequel, DAWN OF DESTINY for only $0.99. Why, you might wonder? Two reasons: (1) It is for children, and I want them to have access to it. No worrying about whether their parents want to spend the money on it. (2) Because these books feed into my Allie Strom books – in fact, the little girl in this book grows up to be the mom in those books (the mom that Allie Strom has to rescue from fallen angels).

So if you haven’t read this book yet, now’s a great time to do so!

And while you’re getting it #free, why not get the Audiobook? I think it’ll only cost you an additional $1.99.


Audiobook Reviewer Review:

“fairytale quality of the writing”

This story was a lovely parable about the nature of death in the life of a young child.
Brooke absolutely adores her father and when he goes away on active duty for the military and doesn’t come home, she’s distraught. He promised her that he would come home to finish painting birds and woodland creatures on the mural in her bedroom but now he can never do that.

As you can tell from the synopsis, Brooke turns into a bird when she puts on the necklace she finds from her father following his death and when she doesn’t make it back home by sunrise as the note she finds with it instructs her to do, she cannot turn back into her human form.

While she is stuck in her bird form, she feels an even greater sense of helplessness than she’s been feeling since the death of her father. She finds that making new friends eases her burden, especially when faced by a greater evil hat stands between her and becoming human again to rejoin her family.
She meets Roy, a kind young bird who teaches her how to use her wings and shares with her the loss of his father and Timmy, a mouse with his own sad story who teaches her to think about the feelings of her family as well as her own.

The message in this story comes through loud and clear, that friends and family are important in times of bereavement and that though the pain feels personal and lonely, other people have gone through the same thing too and others may be sharing in your grief.

What I like most about this story is that it doesn’t come across as sad, it is the story of a child on a magical adventure and coming across challenges but coming through the other side. The fairytale quality of the writing takes the edge off the painful topic and feels comfortably familiar.

I would definitely recommend this story for a primary aged child going through a bereavement or even to children in general to help them understand the concept of loss.

Rebecca Greene brought a great energy  which would easily keep a child’s attention and lightened the mood of the story. Her character voices were very entertaining and she made Brooke’s grief seem very real, her performance and the production quality of this audiobook were second to none.

Audiobook was provided for review by the author.
