Read about my favorite movie villain on four wheels, underground music to write to, and my secret addiction to a retro gamebook series more than 60 books long.
P.S. She’s doing a book giveaway, too!
I’m so excited to announce that the wait is finally over. No Sleep till Doomsday has just been released in bookstores everywhere!
Can crystal sorceress Dru Jasper save her boyfriend Greyson’s soul, salvage her troubled friendships, and find the apocalypse scroll in time to stop doomsday?
“Sharp action scenes, crisp characterization and pinpoint plotting keep the pages quickly turning. A terrifying, unforgettable world.”
“A high-octane thrill ride.”
“A different kind of urban fantasy. If you enjoy quirky humor and action-packed fun, then this one’s for you.”
No Sleep till Doomsday releases tomorrow! To celebrate, I’m offering a nice little bonus freebie.
Over the summer, I wrote a brand-new Dru Jasper story that takes Dru and Greyson on a romantic dinner date gone horribly wrong. Evil curses, terrifying creatures, mass hysteria—and that’s before they even order dessert.
You can’t get this story anywhere, because it’s brand-new. But you can read it for free.
Just preorder No Sleep till Doomsday today (from any bookseller), send me a copy of your confirmation email, and I will send you the brand-new top secret Dru Jasper story as my gift.
