November Zombie Sale

In honor of enduring three years of this bullshit–and in honor of the recent spookytimes funfest–The Complete Roadtrip Z will be on sale in ebook for $8.99USD all through November! That’s all four seasons of the hit serial (funded by my beloved subscribers, whom I thank) for the price of one.

The Complete Roadtrip Z

Cotton Crossing was a dead end, but not for Ginny Mills. She’s just marking time, getting experience in the county library system, before moving back to a decent urban environment. Then the phones stop working.

Lee Quartine knows there’s no way the pretty girl at the library will even look at him. Especially since he can’t open his mouth. He knows he’s a hick, but when the power starts going out and the woods are full of strange creatures, it’s good to have someone around who can build a fire. And kill.

Ginny and Lee and their small band of survivors can’t stay put, and moving is dangerous. The infected are shambling in the hills and the concrete canyons of cities.

It’s gonna be a long trip…

Available direct, or through Kobo and these other fine ebook retailers.


Not only that, but my latest release is Duty, the second in the Ghost Squad series.

Duty

After nearly dying on his team’s last mission, Paul Klemperer is heading home for the first time since signing up for the Army. His hometown’s grown a little. The inhabitants are older. And life has moved on, but some things are still the same. Like the way he feels about the girl he left behind—who ended up marrying someone else.

Beck Sommers has a divorce in the works; if she can just hold on, she’ll be able to leave this godforsaken town. Unfortunately, her soon-to-be-ex-husband has other ideas. Her first love Paul has returned as well, making things even more complicated. And then there’s the corruption, the drugs…and murder.

Beck’s determined to fix what’s gone wrong, but she has no idea how deep the corruption goes. And Paul? Well, he’s a little behind on the local news, but one thing’s for sure—he’s not letting Beck get away this time.

First, though, he’ll have to keep her alive…

Now available from Barnes & Noble, Apple, Amazon, Kobo, and independent bookstores.

If you’re interested, the book’s soundtrack is here.


And if you’re in the mood for a VC Andrews homage, That Damn Werelion Book is now available too. November’s certainly a crackerjack of a month around here and there might be even more, so stay tuned…

Halloween Desires…Known

In honor of spookytimes, October will see several sales! And the first one’s a real doozy–that’s right, my genie-and-accountant Halloween romance is just $2.99USD for the month!


Desires, Known

A ring. A man. A centuries-old secret.

To accountant Emily Spencer, the junky thrift-store ring is perfect for her Halloween costume. A few too many drinks, a slip of the tongue, and all of a sudden there’s a guy calling her mistress and demanding to know her desires. If she just ignores the weirdness, it’ll go away, right?

Wrong. Hal is a creature of almost limitless power, eternally bound to serve the owner of the ring. Though modern technology is puzzling, he has no difficulty deciding he likes being out in the world again. Even if he has to train a reluctant but undeniably attractive new mistress.

Unfortunately, the man who lost Hal’s ring so long ago is still around—rich, unscrupulous, and more than a little insane. He’ll try anything—deceit, treachery, torture—to regain control of Hal. Anything at all.

Including murder…

Ebook available direct, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, or Google Play. (Paperback available here, though not on sale.)


This book holds a special little place in my heart, mostly because of the scene where Hal and Em are at the library. Writing a genie discovering the romance section was an outright ton of fun. (Gotta amuse yourself in this business; it’s the only way to stay relatively sane.)

But that’s not the only thing going on this month!


Ghost Squad News!

The second Ghost Squad book, Duty, is out on October 21! Those of you who liked Klemp in Book 1 are going to love this. And to celebrate, that selfsame Book 1–Damage–is $.99USD in ebook from October 15, 2022 until Halloween!

Damage

Reeling from trauma and divorce, Cara Halperin takes what should be a simple job with an expensive agency. As a nanny to rich children, she shouldn’t have much to worry about, and her job is just complex enough to keep her from brooding. Unfortunately, the agency’s sent her into a trap.

Vincent Desmarais wants to go back into the field, but instead, he’s put on leave. The diagnosis? PTSD. No problem–he can pick up security work on the side to keep himself sharp–that is, if the side work isn’t just as dangerous as the bloody places he’s longing to get back to.

When the lights go out, Cara and her young charge have only one option: to trust the new security guy. Vincent finds himself unwilling to abandon them to fate or let them out of his sight. If the trio wants to stay alive, they’ve got to trust each other. . .

. . .but that may just be what their enemies are counting on.

Available from Barnes & Noble, Apple, Amazon, and Kobo.


Not only that, but The Complete HOOD box set is 30% off at Kobo, if you enter the code “OCTBOX” at checkout. This sale is going on until the 31st.

And the Kobo Spooky Stories Finale is going on, where the Complete Roadtrip Z–all four seasons of the serial–is 67% off. That’s right–four whole books’ worth of Ginny, Lee, and the gang for only $4.99USD until October 31. (You don’t need a code for that particular sale, just click and pay.)

Dog Days, and Demon Librarian

The dog days are over. Which means it’s about time for another sale, isn’t it? So, from now until the end of September, The Demon’s Librarian is $.99USD in ebook!


Demons are preying on schoolchildren in her city, so Francesca Barnes does what any red-blooded librarian would–she does some research and goes hunting. But the books she finds in a secret cache don’t tell her the whole story. Chess has no idea what she’s just stepped into, or just how special she is.

Orion is Drakul, part demon, and a loyal servant of the Order. He doesn’t expect a motorcycle-riding librarian to be messing around with demonic forces, and he doesn’t expect her to smell so damn good. But Ryan’s got bigger problems. His partner has disappeared, and the forces of Darkness are rising.

Now Chess is Ryan’s only hope of finding his partner, and Ryan is Chess’s only hope of survival because the demons now know Chess exists and that she is the heir to a long-lost power that could push back their dark tide. If Ryan can keep her alive long enough, she just might be the key to destroying the demons completely.

But Ryan doesn’t know he’s been betrayed by the very Order he serves. And if Chess does by some miracle survive, he won’t ever be able to touch her again. . .

Find The Demon’s Librarian on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, and Kobo.


This is a perennial Reader favorite and has, in my daughter’s opinion, one of the best lines I’ve ever written. (“You have messed with the wrong fucking librarian!“) I’ve always meant to go back and write the follow-up with Chess’s sister’s Charlie, not to mention Charlie’s secretary Phil. Maybe once I get the Ghost Squad books done, I’ll have the chance. We’ll see.

Librarians are ding-dang heroes anyway. I find it entirely plausible that one would decide to take on an entire city’s worth of demons, just because…

RELEASE DAY: The Rouje Kith

That’s right, my beloveds! That Damn Werelion Book is now out in the world, both ebook and print!


The Rouje Kith

Zoe Simmons has been on the run for as long as she can remember. No fixed address, no real ID, working under the table and moving on the instant her instincts tell her to. Then a disturbing, magnetic blond stranger appears, saying he’s her twin brother–the one her mother swore was dead seventeen years ago.

The Kith have claimed Zoe, sweeping her into a new world of pleasure, luxury–and violence. She’s always suspected she wasn’t quite normal, and now she’s about to find out how deadly her new fairytale life can be…

Available direct, or at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, and Google Play. Paperback available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and independent bookstores.

A free sample of the first few chapters is also available.


I can’t believe it. My little VC Andrews homage with bonus werelion, all grown up and out in the world. Oh, and you can find the book’s soundtrack here. I know this particular effort has been eagerly anticipated, and I hope you guys like it. (And that cover! My cover artist really went to town.)

I’ve got copyedits on yet another book to get done, so that will help defray the release day nerves a bit. But I’m sure I’ll end up with my head in a bucket, hyperventilating (whether or not the bucket will be full of ice water is the question), so I’d best get on that.

Happy Tuesday, my beloveds. It looks like it’s going to be an exciting one…

The Finder sale (sixth in the Watchers series) ended July 15.


He’s not the only one watching her. . .

For years Jorie Camden has been quietly helping her police friends pursue cold cases. She’s paid the price over and over again, her talent for Finding stretched to the limit. Now something different is stalking the streets, taking children–something old, and foul, and Dark. The cops won’t admit there’s a problem, so what can a Lightbringer do but solve the mystery on her own?

Caleb is a Watcher of Circle Lightfall, and his mission is simple: protect the witch he’s assigned to–the witch who just happens to be able to touch him without causing agonizing pain. It’s his one shot at redemption, and it’ll take every weapon he has, plus his willingness to play dirty. Even if his witch seems to be chasing something no one can see.

Yet something Dark is indeed in their city. And now that it’s aware of pursuit, it has plans for Jorie and her talent–plans not even Caleb might be able to stop. . .

Ebook available at AmazonBarnes & NobleKobo, and Apple.


I get a lot of mail asking for more Watchers–which is a marvelous compliment, thank you! I’m writing as fast as I can, my beloveds…

A Mindhealer June

It’s June, so that means a sale! At least, that’s what the publisher tells me. From June 1-15, Mindhealer (fifth in the Watchers series) is on sale for $.99USD.


Mindhealer

The attacks are brutal, leaving the victims unconscious and broken. A powerful Mindhealer might be able to piece together what’s happening to these crushed bodies and shattered minds, so Caroline Robbins is pulled away from her relatively quiet life. It’s dangerous — Mindhealers are incredibly vulnerable to the Dark—and Caro refuses even the idea of having a Watcher. She won’t have another man die in front of her, and that’s that. Unfortunately, the Watcher she just ran into has other ideas…

Caro, the witch Merrick rescues from the dogs of the Dark, is obnoxiously stubborn, infuriating, and seemingly determined to throw herself into every dangerous situation possible. It’s enough to drive a man insane, and definitely enough to make a Watcher frustrated. How is he supposed to protect her, especially when she insists she doesn’t need a Watcher? But Caro is going to need all of Merrick’s skill and strength sooner than anyone guesses. The attacks haven’t stopped, and the closer Caro gets to solving the mystery, the more danger she’s in. Because she’s the next victim—unless Merrick can save her. And Merrick just might die in the line of fire if Caro can’t find a way to keep her Watcher safe.

Ebook available at AmazonBarnes & NobleApple, and Kobo.


I had thoughts of putting something else on sale, but…yeah, personal events somewhat preclude that. Regardless, I hope you enjoy Caro & Merrick’s adventure, and hopefully there’ll be another sale soon.

A Hood and Wonder May

HOOD

May has begun, and I thought I’d run another sale. Or two!

The first season of HOOD–my Robin Hood in space serial–is now $2.99USD in ebook until June 1.

Season One

The Great Migration was centuries ago; two generation ships reached the Anglene galaxy with its clutch of terraform-suitable planets and performed their work.

Anglene is smoldering. The galactic insurrection is supposed to be crushed. Robbhan Locke, a Second Echelon soldier, has returned to his birth planet along with other veterans, finding Sharl Notheim holding all of Sagittarius in his mailed fist for Parl Jun the Regent. 

There’s no redemption in homecoming. Even Marah Madán and Ged Gizabón, Robb’s childhood friends, have been forced into accommodation. The Sharl won’t stop squeezing until he’s made maximum profit for his royal patron–and covered up all his wartime indiscretions.

Heroes aren’t needed here, but even a damaged man can fight…

On sale direct, or through Barnes and Noble, Apple, Amazon, and Kobo.


And because that’s not enough, my surrealist novella (20k words) is pay-what-you-want through Payhip until June 1. This deal won’t be available anywhere else, it’s Payhip only, though you can find the ebook elsewhere for a set price.

Beast of Wonder

She wakes up in an airport, staring at a baggage carousel.

She remembers nothing, not even her name.

And then, the danger begins…

Again, the pay-what-you-want is only available through my Payhip store. If you like it, and want it in paperback, that’s here–but the paperback has a set price.


And if you like HOOD, you can use the code “MAY40” to get 40% off the ebook box set over at Kobo until May 23rd. (US, UK, CA, AUS, & NZ, I think.) Just put the code in at checkout! ETA: This sale is now over.

HOOD: The Complete Serial

Anglene is smoldering. The galactic insurrection is supposed to be crushed. Robbhan Locke, a Second Echelon soldier, has returned to his birth planet along with other veterans, finding Sharl Notheim holding all of Sagittarius in his mailed fist for Parl Jun the Regent.

There’s no redemption in homecoming. Even Marah Madán and Ged Gizabón, Robb’s childhood friends, have been forced into accommodation. The Sharl won’t stop squeezing until he’s made maximum profit for his royal patron–and covered up all their wartime indiscretions.

If the Gran Parl Riccar can be found, he could save all of Anglene. In the meantime, Robb, Marah, and their friends are going to have to do it themselves–if they survive.

The war is over, but “peace” is a relative term…


I think that’ll keep us warm until June. Enjoy!
