Sacrificed: Now Available in Audio

Did you love Michael Ferraiuolo’s narration of Caged? Want the next one?

Out now:

Reunited once more, the crew of Baal’s Heart must make the long and treacherous journey south to the towering spires of the Devil’s Isles. The path through the mountain range is fraught with peril; mayhem and tragedy plague the pirate ship, but what the men find beyond the spires is the most shocking of all.

In this sequel to the acclaimed Caged, the pirates are dragged into a dangerous new world by Captain Baltsaros’s all-consuming obsession. In the midst of terror and chaos, Jon learns that the captain and first mate have been keeping secrets from him. But will the truth tear them apart?

Audible review:
What about Michael Ferraiuolo’s performance did you like?
In a word: incredible. His ability to switch seamlessly between and among all the characters’ voices is truly awesome. This is far more than just a “reading”… it is performance art.

Kestrel's Talon

Happy release day to me! (woo!)

Kestrel’s Talon is the first book in a new fantasy series, The Stonewatchers. I’m looking forward to introducing you to these guys… but it’s impossible to say much about the story without spoiling it.  So… I’ll just say that if you enjoyed the Baal’s Heart books, this book might be for you.

Looking for some early reviews? Check them out here.

Buy it at Amazon (kindle and paperback available)

 

Kestrel’s Talon (The Stonewatchers #1)

Coming May 23rd to Amazon

Kestrel's Talon

Following the Prentish/Nemarri war, Kes is rejected by his homeland under the guise of religious purity laws. Though he’s spared execution, the proud Nemarri’s fate is only marginally more merciful than death when he is sold into sexual slavery at a prosperous pleasure house.

Despite his stoic endurance, Kes knows he’s reaching his breaking point, but there is nothing he can do—there is no path to freedom in the Holy Prentish Empire, only a lifetime of humiliating servitude.

That is, until a beautiful young slave and his formidable master approach Kes in the marketplace and make an astonishing offer to take him home with them. The only problem: “home” is the accursed Horthmont Castle from the scare-stories of Kes’s childhood.

Thrown into a world of living myth, powerful magic, and ancient gods, Kes learns the secrets kept hidden by Horthmont’s thick blackstone walls. There he discovers something he thought he’d never know again: hope for the future.

Kestrel’s Talon is a fantasy story about an empire obsessed with subjugation. Is it dark? Not really. It’s about trust, hope, and healing. Character driven, sweet at times, and a little kinky at others, it’s a tale I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I do. :)

I’m back and did you know you could win some stuff?

Howdy! I’m back in the land of snow and cold and ready to get back to writing. I did “cheat” a bit while I was on the beach and did the equivalent of scribbling down scenes on napkins (Notes) and scraps of paper (iA Writer) which I started to sort through yesterday. Kestrel’s Talon has hit 60k which is about the halfway mark in the story. I think. I’m a little obsessed with this story… Instead of reading the 10 or so books I had in my pile to read while in Barbados, I spent a lot of time reading over what I’d written of Kestrel and editing. However… the one book I did read was a huge one—Xperiment by Dan Skinner—so there’s that.

But mostly, and I really swear, I just relaxed, suntanned, swam, drank, people-watched, chilled out… I have a post in me about Barbados in general, but that will probably be next week. In the meantime, I’ve put all my vacation pics at the bottom of this post if you want to take a look.

★ Happy Launch Day! UnCommon Bodies anthology – available now! ★

11838757_876979539052138_557470477494033052_o

Step right up to the modern freakshow — We have mermaids, monsters, and more. You won’t be disappointed, but you may not get out alive.

What is UnCommon Bodies?
UnCommon Bodies presents a collection of 20 beautifully irreverent stories which blend the surreal and the mundane. Together, the authors explore the lives of the odd, the unbelievable, and the impossible. Imagine a world where magic exists, where the physical form has the power to heal or repulse, where a deal with the devil means losing so much more than your soul.

He lost his man near the Canadian border after a high speed chase, but not before ATLAS pulled strings to transfer the woman Tobin loves across the country, hampering any chance at reconciliation. With ATLAS having escaped his jurisdiction, Tobin had nothing left but to follow his wife to California, seeking reassignment at the West Coast cyberterrorism field office. His reputation precedes him, and he has drawn the case pursuing a man the media has taken to calling “The Zealot.” As usual, Tobin pours himself into his work, but the work becomes personal in ways that he never would have imagined.

Reserved by SM Johnson: It’s been five years since the accident that killed Pete Spencer’s younger lover and left him grieving, bitter, and broken.

Scars: First Session by Jordanne Fuller: It takes years to beat a strong woman into submission. It has to start somewhere. After a life of abuse, Abigail made the decision to cover her scars with tattoos. What she didn’t expect was to confront her emotional scars in the process.
