It’s a good thing she’s such a badass.

Rane - It Happened One Doomsday

Rane. Bad with names. Boundary issues. Breaks concrete blocks for fun. With her fists.

Meet Rane.

It’s no coincidence that “Rane” rhymes with “pain.” She’s Dru’s best friend, Opal’s best frenemy, and Greyson’s possible nemesis.

She’s also six feet tall and able to transform into rock or metal just by touching it. Comes in handy for crushing the forces of darkness.

But does her ‘smash first, ask later’ attitude make her a potent ally — or a loose cannon?

Find out all about Rane, her friends (and her enemies) coming up in It Happened One Doomsday.

“Fresh urban fantasy.” — Seattle Public Library

Seatle skyline

Here’s a nice new review from the Seattle Public Library:

“Light on angst and heavy on banter in a world where the four horsemen of the apocalypse drive muscle cars, this fresh urban fantasy plays with genre tropes with a heroine more likely to consult a book than swing a sword.”

Thank you, Seattle!

And it’s true. The most powerful weapon in Dru’s arsenal isn’t a sword. What is it?

Ghost Market CoverGhost Market (Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. book 6)

In the wake of a thwarted war, Lana Harvey is more than ready for an extended vacation on the new houseboat she shares with the Lord of the Flies, but when the leaderless rebels begin poaching souls and selling them on the Ghost Market, Lana is tasked with heading up a new unit to stop them.

Having one of the most famous faces in Eternity proves challenging when it comes to finding a way inside the secretive world of illegal soul peddling, and the only person Lana knows with the right connections is Tasha Henry, a former colleague and defeated rebel with a poaching record. The rogue reaper isn’t going to be easy to track down, and even if Lana does manage to catch up with her, the real question is whether or not a shot at redemption will be enough to lure her away from the dark side.

Available for $2.99 at these fine retailers:

Free Fun-Size Conspiracy

Announcing a new book giveaway!

It’s like all of those miniature candy bars left over from Halloween – but with zero calories!

Actual size.

Actual size?

My debut novel, Conspiracy of Angels, is now in its second printing.

That makes right now the perfect opportunity to shrink the paperback from its hefty 6″ x 9″ trim size down to a more svelte and portable 5″ x 8″ size.

At the same time, my ever-industrious friend and erstwhile partner in crime Angie Hodapp has taken the time to freshen up the entire book, cover to cover, with a new interior design that’s bolder and easier to read.

Conspiracy of Angels title page

Wait, what’s that title again? **squinting** Can’t quite read it…

(Being a typeface geek, little details like this are ridiculously important to me. Let’s just say it looks good, inside and out. Nuff said.)

To celebrate, I’m giving away a free paperback copy of the new, smaller size to one lucky newsletter subscriber.

If you’re already a subscriber, you don’t have to do a thing. Just wait to see if you win!

(Or if you can’t wait to get your hands on the new paperback, you can always buy it on Amazon now. I won’t stop you.)

If you haven’t already subscribed, don’t wait to claim your chance to win. Click this link.

Happy reading!

What Do Men Really Think About Your Hair?

My next book is so new that even the title isn’t settled yet.

what men really think about your hair

Watch what happens when he runs out of shampoo.

But my agent sent me a nice note about how well I pulled off the simmering romantic tension between the lead characters.

Considering that the point-of-view character is a smart young woman, and I’m a guy (in my case, smart and young are arguable), this was quite a compliment.

And it got me thinking:

How do authors write about characters of the opposite gender?

Spider Thief Steals Hibernating Tarantulas

pet tarantula

Just because it’s fuzzy doesn’t make it a cuddly pet.

Did you know that there’s a black market for stolen tarantulas?

Or that these spiders hibernate during the winter?

Can you imagine someone crazy enough to break into the dark, cobweb-choked crawlspace under a house and steal a bunch of giant spiders?

Yeah. My thoughts exactly.

So, real life can be stranger than fiction. But still, I do my best to make fiction pretty freakin’ strange.
