Dead is the New Black by Christine DeMaio-Rice


Laura Carnegie gave up on the man of her dreams a long time ago. He's fashion designer Jeremy St. James, and not only is he her boss, everyone knows he's gay.



When the woman who holds the company purse strings is found dead in the office, and Jeremy's arrested for the murder, everything changes. If Laura can just solve this crime, keep the cops off her tail, break up a counterfeiting ring, and get the show on the runway by Friday, she might stop being Seventh Avenue's perpetual loser.



If you love Project Runway, or enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada, try Dead Is the New Black.

61 A.D. by David McAfee


61 A.D. For ten years, Taras has lived in the young city of Londinium, feeding off the city’s underbelly. But now Theron, his old enemy, has come looking for revenge, and Taras’ nights of living in relative peace are about to end.



Yet not even Theron can slip into town unnoticed, and the Council of Thirteen sends Ramah to deal with the two renegades once and for all. But unknown to the Council, a much older enemy is also in Londinium, and this time even the great Ramah might not be safe.



Set against the backdrop of the Iceni uprising in Roman-era Britannia, 61 A.D. continues the story of Taras, Theron, and Ramah, as they fight their way through history.





Deadly Obsession by Kristine Cayne


Nic Lamoureux's perfect movie star life is shattered by a stalker who threatens any woman close to him. When he meets photographer Lauren James, the attraction is instant--and mutual. She's exactly the sort of woman he craves, but the stalker makes deadly clear Lauren is the competition.

And the competition must be eliminated.



"Stock up on ice cubes because this is definitely one sizzling debut. Readers will be hooked from the first sentence- on the book and on Nic! As rich as a white chocolate cheesecake, Cayne's entrance into the suspense genre is invigorating, explosive and simply intoxicating." ~ RT Book Reviews Top Pick





The Book of Lost Souls by Michelle Muto


When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Worse, someone has used an evil spell book to bring back two of history's most nefarious killers.



Ivy's got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But first, she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits: the school’s hotter-than-brimstone demon bad boy, Nick Marcelli. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and Ivy soon discovers it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end




The Black God's War by Moses Siregar III

Against the backdrop of epic warfare and the powers of ten mysterious gods, Lucia struggles to understand The Black One.



Her father-king wants war.

Her messianic brother wants peace.

The black god wants his due.

She suffers all the consequences.



"Moses is a fine writer deserving of success, and I think that it will follow ... I really enjoyed Moses's work." - David Farland, NYT Bestselling Author of The Runelords





Carpe Bead'em by Tonya Kappes


Hallie Mediate was raised by her (slightly) crazy Great Aunt Grace on the wrong side of the tracks in Cincinnati. Hallie escapes her hometown and never looks back.



That is, until she’s transferred back to the hometown. Not wanting her past to cross paths with her future, Hallie puts her life on hold.



Aunt Grace is still up to her old tricks, but Hallie finds some sanity at a local jewelry-making class where she uncovers a hidden talent for beading.



Will she keep searching for the happiness she may already have found?






The Survival of Thomas Ford by John A.A. Logan



Thomas Ford is the only survivor of the car crash which killed his wife. He is also the only witness who would be willing to identify the young, reckless driver who caused the crash. But the driver would sooner see Thomas Ford dead than ever let that happen.

















Happy Reading!

The Dead Have Ruled the Earth for 200 Years


THE DEAD HAVE RULED EARTH FOR 200 YEARS

Two hundred years after humanity was forced to abandon Earth to the zombie hordes, three humans descend in great armored battle-suits into a world populated only by the ravenous and rotting undead. They will gun down as many hundreds and thousands of the monsters as necessary in their fight to retrieve the most important possession we left behind.

Too bad one of them is an idiot.

Amazon

The Dead Have Ruled Earth for 200 Years is not a love story. It is not a work of spiritual mythology. It is bleeding and biting, cutting and explosions; a written rocket of death and disfigurement, with all humanity’s future at stake. Get ready for a white-knuckled descent into the worst of all possible nightmares. Two centuries after the end of the world, it may be the last story of humanity’s battle to survive.

Flutter cover reveal!


Sara
Sara's life is forever changed -
Waking up, buried & hidden deeply in the last place anyone would want to be, will do that. She is determined to find out how she ended up there & why, but when the only person who can help her, continuously lies to her, she finds herself forced to suffer alone. She can't ignore the strange things that begin to happen to her nor can she hide from the nightmares that haunt her sleep. And when her world collides with Adan - the mysterious boy whom she can't seem to stay away from, literally - she is consumed by the familiar flutter that sparks whenever he is around and she is desperate to discover the reason why.
But the biggest discovery will come from the secret of what she is…

Adan
Adan’s mission to find Sara has finally approached -
It seemed simple: bring her back to the enchanted world that lives, breathes and survives because of her, but he quickly finds himself faced with an entirely new challenge. Immediately, Adan realizes that staying unknown to Sara is a task he will fail before even attempting. The pull to her is far too strong to refuse, and being with her will defy the very reason he existed. He was the key to her survival and loving her was not part of the plan that he had been born to follow. Can he find it in himself too resist the urge to be with her and follow through with their destiny or will he destroy everything that had been left to Sara to protect and defend -
And the kingdom she is unaware she rules…

Flutter
As Sara and Adan struggle to overcome their own separate battles -
There is a far more determined evil that is stalking the shadows and waiting to annihilate them both.
Sara will figure out that not everything is what it seems and knowing what she can and can not trust will be the key to finding out the truth to what happened to her, the reason why she had been buried alive and who she really is…

Sara and Adan will discover the hidden meaning to why she was the reason he existed and why he would be the reason she survived & together they will fight to change the rules and rewrite their fate.

Discover the Meaning,
Discover the Secret,
Discover

*Squee* I'm really excited about this one!!! Isn't the cover amazing???

Busy, busy, busy

Just got Chasing the Witch back from one of my critique partners! To say that I have my work cut out for me is an understatement lol. The book will be amazing when everything is said and done. It's just a lot of hard work for me in the mean time. Where on earth I'm going to find the time to do it is the question. I'll probably stay up way too late trying to get everything done so I can get it to my editor and be ready for an October release.

Besides that, I have 5 events for my Release Day Diva stuff in the next 2 weeks! Loving all of the authors too, they couldn't be an sweeter if they tried. I'm also working on a short story, and also Love and Blood. Can you say too many balls in the air?? Lol, it's ok, I'd rather be busy than bored.

Hope everyone has an amazing Friday :)

Cover reveal for Love and Blood!

I've been working with Stephanie Nelson over at Once Upon a Time Covers, and she has come up with something totally amazing for Love and Blood!! Now all I have to do is finish writing the book lol. This should give me tons of inspiration.

What do you guys think???

Minor setback

So, I'm going to be in an anthology due out sometime in November, I'm really excited about it!! I had my short all written, and wouldn't you know it, I changed my mind about it. I still really love the story, but I honestly think it will be better released later, after another of my books comes out. The short I decided to do instead will focus on a few of the characters from Mark of the Witch! I'm almost done with it, I think you guys are really going to like it!!!

Something fun coming soon..

Hey you guys, I should have a cover reveal coming pretty soon for my vampire book Love and Blood!! I'm working with Stephanie Nelson over at Once Upon a Time Covers for this one, she does amazing work!! I've been hard at work writing it, so hopefully it will be out in January, if everything goes as planned. I just finished my short story that takes place right before Love and Blood, it will be in an anthology due out in November or December. Stay tuned....

Trying to find a balance

I've been busy lately...when I say busy, I mean I've been doing 20 things at a time. I started my event business a few months ago, and it has taken off. I am so humbled by the response I have gotten. The author's I have worked with have all been so amazing, I'm really excited about this chapter in my life. Not everyone gets to do something that they truly love for a living, I have been blessed to find a few things that I love to do, and I'm actually able to do them!

I'm trying to fit in writing where I can...for instance, after this post, I will most likely write. I squeeze it in wherever I can lol. I'm still totally pushing for an October release for Chasing the Witch, it all depends on how extensive my edits will be lol. I'm plugging right along on my short story for the anthology I'm in. I love it so far, it's taking place right before Love and Blood, my current WIP. I'm hoping to put that one out soon after the anthology!
