New Release: Transient Moon

Available on Amazon / Amazon International / iBooks / Nook / Kobo

Machines beeped away in their gleeful rhythm as I ran on the treadmill, wishing with every step that the screech marking the end of the test would sound through the sweat- and disinfectant-filled space. 

It wasn’t that I minded the additional exercise. Far from it. The burn in my muscles was always a gratifying sensation. 

But after doing the same damn thing for nearly three months, it was getting kind of tiresome.

“Five more minutes, Lotte,” Agnieszka said from behind her station.

I let out an obligatory groan, but the petite brunette didn’t react. She kept staring intently at the monitors, a travel mug filled with blood that prickled my nose in one hand, a pen with Interspecies Crimes and Relations Agency spelled out on the side in the other. She marked something down on her trusty pad, although for the life of me, I couldn’t imagine just what it could have been aside from SAME.

New release: Shadow World

Available now on Amazon (FREE w/KU)

There are no cars in the Shadow World. No gentle hum of traffic to lull a person to sleep. 

The wake-up calls, on the other hand, apparently didn’t discriminate between the mortal and the demonic realm. Lucky me.

My eyes snapped open at the unmistakable dull thunk of a knife embedding itself in my bedpost. I glanced at the silver gleam of the dagger a mere two inches from my head. 

A damn fine way to rouse a person and keep them from snoozing all at once.

“Do you plan on throwing yourself off the sill, darling?” I drawled into the inky night the sickly yellow light of the lampposts barely touched. “Or will you get your ass inside already? It’s fucking drafty.”

Shadow World is live at long last! I’m so excited to introduce you to Crina; she was one of the most fun characters ever to work with. Even if circumstances were running her patience thin 😉

Grab your copy from Amazon to join Crina and explore the Shadow World with its (sometimes insufferably hot) denizens.

Quick Shadow World Announcement

Some of you might have noticed that the pre-orders for Shadow World have been cancelled/disappeared off vendor sites. And yes, that’s all true.

First of all, I’d like to stress that Shadow World will be releasing on December 18th as originally planned. But…

(Here comes the fun part)

Okay, I love technology. Seriously. A-freaking-dore it. But sometimes, the relationship just doesn’t quite go in the direction one would expect. Sounds familiar?

(I hope not, though I think the answer for most people on that would be a grumbling yes)

Unfortunately, this wasn’t a case of a printer not hooking up to wi-fi or a computer freezing (or even Word doing its thing and correcting words despite having auto-correct off). Nope, this had to do with distribution and something fishy going on with the pre-order commands not going through once entered into the system.

Since I didn’t want to wing it and hope for an outcome that wouldn’t be a complete mess, the only way to go forward to was to wipe the slate clean and start again. So that’s exactly what I did.

I’m still not sure if everything is solved now, but at least it looks that way.

And, hopefully, it will stay that way all up until the 18th, when Shadow World releases.

Last but not least, I want to thank everyone who had their pre-orders cancelled for their patience. As well as all of you who’re probably clicking on dead links in the meantime.

(*aggressively writes down FIX LINKS in bullet journal*)

Seriously, I love all of you, and I hope you’ll enjoy Crina’s story in a little less than two weeks’ time!

 

Release day: EVENFALL

55373d2ed99710fc92328cec0ca8fa18dd6279c3

“The thing I noticed above all else when unconsciousness released me from its talons of darkness, was that for the first time in my life, I found myself gazing at the night sky.

The second, just as enchanting, yet infinitely more unbelievable, was that the world around me was no longer mine.

A raspy laugh escaped my lips. 

I should have been scared, terrified of this impossibility. But I didn’t have the strength to do anything more than roll over onto my back and drink it all in. 

Above me, a spill of flickering, pale golden light scattered across the canvas, painting a breathtaking blend of black, violet, and deep blue. My breath hitched as a thought wormed its way in. I blinked, refusing to acknowledge that hopeful voice in case this smattering of illuminated specs was a consequence of my…fall?

Given my undignified position and the sting that crawled across my palms, I had to have fallen.”

LOTTE IS BACK!

37284670_10156133355136998_4851756269159055360_o

AMAZON / iBOOKS / NOOK / KOBO

The Games are over. But the fight has just begun. 

When one of her coaches goes missing, fixing the club’s tarnished reputation becomes the least of Lotte’s problems. Especially as her mission to locate Voit puts her in the path of the one person she desperately hoped to avoid.

Refusing to subject herself to Isa Vogt’s volatile presence for a second time, Lotte forms an unconventional alliance with a demon who’s set on bringing her coach to safety. But a common goal isn’t the only thing Lotte and Afanasiy share.

As their attraction deepens and the string of disappearances shifts to murders, Lotte can’t bring herself to walk away. From the demon or the case.
