Demonic Snack Foods

I got a comment asking about the recipe for those roasted beaks the Lows love so much, and wanted to oblige so everyone in my demon household can enjoy the delicacy.

Honestly, when writing about them, I was thinking about chicken feet and how they are usually boiled down in a broth, but can also be fried or baked. I’ve never cooked chicken feet myself, but I know that the nails need to be removed before preparing them since nails are super hard and wouldn’t be all that easy for human teeth to chomp on. I imagined beaks were the same. But since demons eat all sorts of interesting things (like bitey fish) denizens of Hel don’t mind chewing something hard as a rock.

Of course, each region of Hel has their own special take on the best way to prepare roast beaks. All demons agree that softening the beaks by either blanching them or boiling them is necessary before tossing them in the oven (or air fryer if you’re this side of the gates). Cool them down by immersing the beaks in cold water, then get out your metal pan and fire up the oven.

Before roasting, coat the beaks with honey or butter, then sprinkle on a peppery mix, garlic, cinnamon, barbecue sauce, or Sam’s favorite— Old Bay Seasoning. Then roast those suckers until they’re golden brown and hard as granite. If you’re not chipping a tooth, they’re not done!

Cougar On A Hot Tin Roof

I met Robyn Peterman a few years back at a writers convention, introduced by a mutual friend. She’s quirky and funny, a whirlwind of energy, and full of creativity. Her books are chaos-filled, comedic PNR, so of course we instantly bonded! Last year while at a readers conference in Canada, she asked if I’d write something in her Magic and Mayhem Universe. I was absolutely honored to say yes. Our styles have enough similarity that I knew this would work, and I immediately started thinking of what story I might tell in her world.

I’m just as quirky, I decided to do a take on the very dark Tennessee Williams’ play, because, of course, Williams should have written an odd, funny paranormal romance/paranormal mystery where the bad guys get caught and the good guys and girls get their Happily Ever After.

You guys are going to love Gooper and Dev, Brick, Big Daddy, and Big Mama, and of course, the Cat in my version. I know you are. And if you haven’t fallen down the delightful reading rabbit hole of Robyn’s Magic and Mayhem Universe, then get started with book 1, Switching Hour, for free. You absolutely CAN read my book out of order in the series/universe, but just like potato chips, it’s a crime to read/eat just one!

Robyn has already asked me to write another in her universe for next year, and I’ve agreed because Tennessee Williams has a lot more plays that need fixing…er, I mean given my own quirky spin. There will be more meshing of the Magic and Mayhem world along with cameos from those characters in next year’s release: The Night Of The Iguana Shifter.

Cougar Shifter Gooper Pollitt left her home in West Virginia five years ago for the Big City, but a call from her brother has her racing back. Big Daddy is ill, and no matter how prickly things were when she left, family is family.

When she returns, G finds that everything in the town and on the mountain is the same as when she left, except there’s a hot new man in town—a warlock who brews up a magical latte and makes donuts to die for. G’s family might have the vapors over her dating a warlock, but their attitudes toward Dev quickly change when he divines that Big Daddy isn’t ill—he’s been cursed.

Can G and Dev find time for love while hunting for a would-be killer?

WARNING: This story features a whole host of suspects, tons of family drama, a budding fated-mates romance, and pawpaw pudding.

Imp Series now in Kindle Unlimited

For the first time EVER, the entire Imp Series is available exclusively to Amazon and on the Kindle Unlimited program. Get started with A Demon Bound, and get ready to binge read!

Light, fun, cozy paranormal romance

The Accidental Witches Series is rocking with book 4, Hell and Hexes, set to release May 2nd. This is Sylvie’s story, and I think you all are going to love Ophelia’s twin and her rather unorthodox love interest!

If you’re an audio listener, then you’ll be thrilled to know Brimstone and Broomsticks is now available on audio. We’re working on book 2 in the series – Warmongers and Wands – and intend to have the whole series available in audio. The talented Angela Rysk is narrating – yes, she’s the voice of Sam from the Imp Series audio, and she’s doing a great job on these quirky little romances.

For those of you who like my more traditional Urban Fantasy novels, Royal Blood (The Templar, Book 5) is set to release June 7th, and book 6 will also release this year, most likely around Thanksgiving.

AND there are two more books in the White Lightning Series coming your way. Book 5, Trouble Boys, is in revisions and will most likely see a June/July release date. Book 6, the as of yet untitled finale to the series will come out later this year.

I’m also planning a Sam novella about Amber’s wedding that will be absolutely, disastrously hysterical. I’m not sure exactly when that will be coming your way, but it’s in the works!

So basically that’s a whole lot on my plate. When I set out my release schedule for this year, I knew it would be hectic, but I didn’t quite realize HOW hectic. It’s like I went to the buffet and just piled a huge tower of food and now I’m back at my table wondering how I’m supposed to eat all this. One bite/word at a time!

I hope you all are enjoying these new books! Outside of the White Lightning Series, I’m very much feeling the humor from my muse right now, so whether it’s light or dark, expect that quirky laugh-out-loud stuff that you folks know and love to continue on through next year.

My goal is to make my readers laugh in very inappropriate places, so read on!
