Alchemy and Arcana: an Urban Fantasy Novella Collection

1. Tell us about your story in Alchemy and Arcana.

Bounty-Hunter…Witch…Magic on the Fritz

Reagan’s job was simple—capture supernaturals and collect the reward even with a cross-heritage of witch and wizard, it paid the bills until a magic-slurping creature interfered in the chase. Arrested by the magical control authorities and wrongly accused, Reagan faces a death sentence unless she completes a mission for her accusers.

But nothing is ever straightforward when it comes to the Unseelie realm, especially a search and rescue.

No one enters the fae world and returns—alive anyway.
2. If you could only read one author for the rest of your life who would it be?

T.F. Walsh. She is a fabulous writer and has an awesome collection of both paranormal romance and urban fantasy – my two favorite genres.
3. Do you have any writing rituals?

I write whenever I can…waiting in line…late at night…first thing in the morning.


4. What was the first thing you ever wrote about?

In second grade we had to write a story about an inanimate object and personify it. I wrote about a piece of chalk and got my first A on a writing assignment. I haven’t stopped making up stories and characters since.


5. What was the last book you read and enjoyed?

Demon’s Mark – Book 2 by T.F. Walsh

Spring into Romance Giveaway

Happy Spring! 

What type of books do you like reading this time of year? Fun and flirty? Mysterious and sexy? Non-Fiction?

I’m excited about the new novel from TF Walsh: Fallen Ashes

Fallen AshLast of your kind? Check. Being hunted by everyone? Check. Waking up magically bound to the world’s most cocky and annoying assassin? Wait, what?

Survival has always been on the top of Fallen’s To Do List as being the last Dragon shifter in Tapestry had painted a target on her long ago. But after being captured and magically tethered to an assassin who could kill her in an instant, time is running out. With the fate of an entire world at stake, Fallen has to find a way to get out alive, with or without her unwanted companion…her incredibly sexy unwanted companion.

Exiled from the Kingdom and on a mission to save his stepfather from the Collector, Saber’s life is already a mess. But he never could imagine that he’d be hexed into a mindless shadow assassin or worse, being kidnapped and mystically-bound to a hot blonde vixen that has a crazy obsession with fire. Sexy/strange/fire-chick aside, he has got to find a way to get out of there but Fallen isn’t in the least being helpful with their escape plan. Seriously, can things get any worse?

Magically-bound, determined, and both fighting an undeniable attraction, can Saber and Fallen work together to free themselves and save their world by defeating the Collector? Or will time slip out of their grasp and all will be lost?

Giveaway:

I’m giving an ebook copy of Fallen – Book 2 Claimed series. To win, just comment on your whatever novel you can’t wait to read this spring.

Hello my name is…Blog Hop

my name is

 

We’re ringing in the New Year with lots of giveaways! And by sharing some fun and wacky facts about ourselves. There’s a new giveaway at each stop so be sure to visit them all! (link at bottom of this post)

5 Quirky Things about me:

1) I love playing video games – dungeon crawler/ hack-n-slash. But with a full time job, family, and my writing, I haven’t had much time to play 😦

2) I have a chocolate/ sugar addiction. Like I can turn away junk food until someone brings desserts – but I can’t stand Milky Way candy bars.

3) I usually repeat things/stories aloud to my husband, family, and friends three times and use the same verbiage. Don’t know why and I don’t realize I’m doing it until someone responds, “you’ve told me this before.”

4) Even though I love reading, I can’t re-read another author’s book. I’ve tried even re-reading my favorites and I just loose interest because I already know the story.

5) I’m not afraid of mice, spiders (unless poisonous), snakes (unless poisonous), tame rats, gerbils or hamsters. However, I hate roaches and wasps – and sharks

And now time for a Giveaway:

Comment below on your favorite or not so favorite thing (animal, quirky trait, etc.) and be entered to win an ebook copy of the following:

 

UPDATE – VeRONIca is the winner! Congrats 🙂

“You should wear blouses like that more often. It suits you.” He unleashed a tendril of power. Most women would turn from anger to near swooning from this much.

“Thank you.” She leaned forward and licked her lips.

He didn’t realize it would take so little to get on her good side. “And that skirt shows off your legs beautifully.”

“You think so?” She turned her leg as if to get a better view. “I worried it would be too short.”

“No, it’s just the right length.” He swallowed as heat set his blood pumping.

“You look amazing…in that color.” A faint blush colored her cheeks as she leaned closer, her eyes darkening. “Want to tell me more… alone?”

Now he was getting somewhere. Why did he think this was going to be hard? He was nearly five thousand years old Incubus. No woman could resist him. “I don’t think I can wait the long ride back to camp.” He traced her hand with his finger. “Let’s get a hotel room and let Travis pick us up in the morning. Late.”

“Damon.” A smile tugged at the corners of her mouth. “You’re too predictable.” She pulled her hand away and stood. “Pizzas are ready. You guys finished?”

“What?” How did she go from scorching hot to formal in a blink?

But Renee didn’t answer him. She sauntered up to the counter and paid for the food while he gawked at her. Was I just played? Impossible. That’s never happened to me… ever.
