A Sale and a New Series Walk Into A Bar…

Big News!

First off, Jake Walk, White Lightning 4, is now in Kindle Unlimited for all you folks who subscribe to that program. Look for a release announcement and preorder link for Trouble Boys, White Lightning 5, sometime after the holidays.

The family is coming over. You’ve got presents to wrap and a tree to decorate. Now is the perfect time to load up your e-reader with 0.99 cent books so you can hide from the relatives with a cup of egg nog and enjoy the holiday with paranormal romance and urban fantasy. Head over HERE and start clicking.


I’m also thrilled to announce the start of a new series! Accidental Witches is a laugh-out-loud, light-and-funny, paranormal romance series in the bestselling Love Spells brand. Book 1, Brimstone and Broomsticks is releasing right after the New Year. Book 2, Warlocks and Wands is releasing late February, and Book 3, Death and Divination is releasing late March. If the series does well, expect to see some additional books, in the meantime enjoy! They can each be read as a stand-alone novel, but to get all the quirky goodness of the town and the seven witch sisters, you’ll want to read all of them. At this time, the series is exclusive to Amazon and will be available in Kindle Unlimited. There is also a paperback that will be available, and I am considering an audio version.

Brimstone and Broomsticks: Maintaining the town wards is the only witch-magic Cassandra Perkins performs—well, except for that time she set her ex-boyfriend’s pants on fire. But when she gets stuck defending a man who claims to be the son of the devil against assault charges, Cassie finds herself firing up amulets and dusting off her broomstick.

Who knew a demon could be so hellishly sexy? Or that his arrival could cause so much trouble in a town full of werewolves, trolls, and harpies?

As for other series: There will be a cover rebrand for the Templar Series in January, and a new Templar book coming in March—Royal Blood, Templar Book 5.  Dark Crossroads, Templar Book 6 will also be released late spring.

Then I’ll be turning my attention back to the Imp World with a fun new series set in Dar and Asta’s world in Chicago. Expect cameos from Sam and some of the other Imp Series characters. More on that to come!

NEW RELEASE – White Lightning Book 4

Jake Walk, White Lightning Book 4, is now available.

The ink is barely dry on the Crew’s new alliance with Philadelphia when a bootleg run is hit by a group of gangsters and three powerful pinchers. Panicked that the New York families are coming for him, mob boss Vito Corbi prepares for war—but Vincent believes these enemies might possibly be the allies he’s been hoping for.

When the Charge’s westbound free pinchers are kidnapped, Hattie fears the worst. But instead of being them taken by the mob into servitude, she finds there’s a second “Charge” operating at cross purposes to her own—a group that has some unpleasant history with Sadie.

Hattie and Vincent must fight for the survival of Baltimore in a war where they’re not sure who are friends and who are enemies. In the process, they’ll face off against one of the most powerful pinchers on the East Coast in a battle where failure is not an option.

White Lightning Book 3 is now available!  Grab it ASAP! And if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, it will be available through that program on November 21st – just in time for Thanksgiving. NOTE – CLIP JOINT IS NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON ONLY AND IN THE KINDLE UNLIMITED PROGRAM

Failure can get a mobster a bullet to the head…or worse.

Fearing he’ll be sent for torture and “re-education” at the notorious Ithaca facility, Vincent pulls out all the stops only to have a mysterious fire up in Pennsylvania burn his hopes of redemption to the ground.

Hattie has one more reason to hate the mob. With Vincent sent away, Hattie worries he’ll not return the same man he was when he left—or not return at all. Helping him will take more than a clever illusion. She’ll need to learn all she can about the mysterious bond she has with the time pincher to help free him before the monsters at Ithaca can break him body and spirit.

I’m psyched to announce that White Lightning Book 4 will be releasing at the end of December. There will be no preorder on this one because retailer schedules can get a bit wonky around the holidays and I want to make sure there aren’t any drunken eggnog issues. I’ll announce as soon as it’s available, but in the meantime enjoy a glimpse of the cover.

So Not A Firestarter

It’s an annual pilgrimage for me—October, Skyline Drive, a cabin in Shenandoah National Park. I hike until I feel like my legs are about to fall off, then sit in my cabin or in the lodge tap room and write. There’s no internet (at the lodge, but it’s spotty) and cell signals are pretty much nonexistent, so I get a lot done. But it’s not just about work, it’s about getting out in the fall air, seeing some breathtaking vistas, and hopefully a bear or two.

Yeah, a bear. Last year I saw one at about mile 40, unconcerned as he munched on vegetation along the side of the road. There was a back-up of cars making their careful way around him, snapping a few pictures. On the way back home last year I also caught a rare glimpse of a bobcat dashing across the road in the morning fog and pausing to eye me before dashing off into the woods.

So I arrived, hoping I’d get another bear sighting this year. I unloaded my bags into my cabin, sat outside with some summer sausage, cheese, and a beer, and eyed the enormous groundhog hole under the section of the cabin that housed the bathroom.

This year was colder than normal. That first night, the heater shut off around 10pm and never came on again. Around midnight I realize it had dropped to about 55 degrees in the cabin. By morning I figured it had  to be upper 40’s and I don’t want to get out of bed.

I’m used to winter camping, but that was thirty years ago and I’m a bit of a wuss now. So I get up, fix a pot of coffee (priorities) and find the remote for the heater. Then I proceed to push every damned button on the thing but I can’t make the heater come on. Giving up, I crawl back in bed to drink my coffee, then get dressed and go to the lodge for breakfast, telling them to send maintenance for the heater. By the time I get back to my cabin, I see the heater seems to be working and is set on 68. It’s still cold, but I figure give it time while I go for a hike. Continue reading
