Make sure to read to the bottom! I have some new book news to share!!!
Humans already wants us out of their realm. If the stone falls into the wrong hands, all hell will break loose. Samuel, the first of the Fallen, wants the stone and plans on using it to his advantage. When chaos erupts, the humans will find justification for their fears, and the supernatural will be forced to fight back.
My allies are few, and my enemies great. Will I be able to stop Samuel and save the world, or will we be lost along with the humans?
AND NOW... THE NEW NEWS!
The sequel to Symphony of Night is underway! The title, The Power Here, will bring Kai back into the story (you met him in SoN) and introduce you to two new characters; Felix and Angelica.
Kai, the resident Oni Demon, is recovering from the heartbreak of losing Jac. She left with Rowan on her new adventure to Valhalla in Symphony of Night. Kai, now on his own, is getting ready for another battle he didn't see coming.
Felix, the badass motorcycle club were-panther, is determined to bring Kai out of his slump and get him laid! Or die trying (LOL!)
Angelica, the seductress banshee has crushed on Felix from afar and recently friended Kai.
When tragedy strikes Felix, it is up to Kai and Angelica to bring him back to civilization without losing themselves in the process. When Angelica embraces her power, the strength of it scares her so much, she feels as if she's going to lose herself to the darkness. That is until an unlikely ally finds her way back to the trio.
Along the way, Alex and Lisa (remember them from Chronicles of the Fallen?) will make an appearance! I'm so excited to write for these two again!
So who's ready for The Power Here??? If you haven't read Symphony of Night yet, now's your chance (link above)!

Special Ops News and Information
Delta Force has been released a little over a month now. People have met Logan and enjoyed his story. Heartache followed by becoming a stubborn asshole to meeting the woman of his dreams who changes his life forever... Well let's say Delta Force invokes a lot of emotion!
OMG he's a beast! -- Amazon review
Holy Hannah! I figured I read a little before I go to sleep...well I could not put this book down and finished! -- Amazon review
[She] carried him when he didn't know he was being carried. -- Amazon review
This book is full of emotions, it makes you hopeful, cry, laugh, pissed and then happy. -- Author Lily-Ann Johnson, author of Blondie's Hero
What's next? Sniper is coming out mid-summer! If you've read Delta Force then you've met Tom Brody. Brody's story is told in the next installment and let me tell you... it's HOT!! Where Logan reclaims his life in Delta Force, Brody teaches his girlfriend, Tony, how to live life in the world of BDSM!
I've been planning out book three, Ranger, recently, and this story will take me into a very dark place. As thought on this story, plotting it out, and listening to the voice of Ponce (you'll meet him in Delta Force), I'm touched, moved, and scared to death to write this story. I chatted with a friend today about his story and before I could even tell her, I was on the verge of tears. Once I gained control of myself, she went a little nuts with me! It's dark story telling, more so than I have attempted before. So a part of me is excited to venture down this unknown road, while the other is fearful to considering knocking on that door. Once the door opens and I decide to walk through it, there's no going back. That is the exciting, and fearful part of it all!
You've also seen posts where I'm writing a book with Marianne Morea. Well we're closing in on being done! It may happen this week! Dragon Master is happening and our goal is to have it ready for Authors After Dark! We're both very excited about this story and cannot wait for you to meet King Tryst, Sebastian Lord Dragon, Jamie, Luke and Rowena!
Books, Books, and more... Returns?
There's been post among post recently of authors having books bought and returned. Maybe it's because the reader doesn't like it, maybe it was a duplicate purchase (although Amazon prevents this if you've already bought the book) or maybe the cost of the book is just too much.
Is 99 cents or the amount of $3.99 too much for someone's budget? Let's take a look at this and see...
Book for $3.99 is a one time purchase fee and the ebook you get to keep for the lifetime of your Amazon (or however you read through) account. (unless Amazon et al changes their dynamic, this is the way it is.)
Maybe the toilet paper was so good, but it was $1.00 more than the average? Would you use the toilet paper then return it to the store? Of course not! How embarrassing would that be! "Excuse me, Joe Q. Public. I wiped my ass with this, but I think it should be free, so I'm returning it."
Oh, and let's not forget Starbucks. If the latte is so amazing, would you drink it, then demand your money back because it was too expensive? Would you pee and demand a refund because the latte is now out of your system and you think, "it should have been in my system at least another full day." Imagine taking a bottle of pee to the Starbucks counter... Eww... just as bad as returning poopy toilet paper. Disgusting, right?
SO WHY IS IT OKAY TO RETURN READ BOOKS? GO TO THE LIBRARY AND GET A FREE BOOK!!! Don't tell an author to make their books free! We spend a lot of our time away from home writing these stories, time away from our families, and put so much effort into them. Whether you enjoy them or not, do not steal by reading and returning. If you loved it, leave a review saying as much. If not, we'll take that one to two star over a return any day. Please, for all things holy, stop returning our books!!!
