No Sleep till Doomsday on USA Today

My jaw hit the floor when I found out that USA Today’s “Happy Ever After” featured an exclusive excerpt from my new book, No Sleep till Doomsday.

Which is kind of a “whoa” moment for me as an author. Plus, it’s cool because you get a sneak peak of the new book before it comes out.

Check out the sneak preview on USA Today.

Meet Hellbringer, the horsepower of the apocalypse.

Hellbringer - It Happened One Doomsday

HELLBRINGER. A muscle car possessed by a speed demon. Can Dru harness its arcane powers to save the world – or does its allegiance lie forever with the forces of darkness?

Excerpt from It Happened One Doomsday:

The garage was easily big enough for three cars, but it held only one: the long, angular form of Greyson’s black muscle car. It sat crouched behind Rane’s back, its hood open just an inch, as if waiting to devour her.

Greyson scratched his chin. “So if it’s possessed by a demon, you’re telling me Hellbringer could attack you again.”

Dru blinked. “I’m sorry, who?”

“Hellbringer.” He nodded his chin at the car. “That’s what I call it.”

“You named your car Hellbringer?” Dru said. “Doesn’t that sound a little, I don’t know, fate-tempting-ish?”

“I had a good reason. I planned to document the whole rebuild online. I needed a catchy name. Didn’t realize the full ramifications, obviously.”

She gave him a sidelong look. “You named your car Hellbringer.”

He shrugged. “Thought about changing it when I realized I couldn’t get a decent license plate. The closest I could get was H-E-L-L-B-G-R.”

“Sounds like Hell Burger.”

“Hell Booger,” Rane called.

Greyson ignored her. “You get my point.”

Honey, in these shoes, you can save the world.

Opal - It Happened One Doomsday

Opal. Closet full of kick-ass shoes. Weakness for cinnamon rolls. Fluent in magical symbols. Ready to save the world.

Meet Opal.

She knows the esoteric contents of almost every handwritten ancient magical tome in The Crystal Connection.

She can identify a magic charm on sight, she can read ancient languages, and she knows what you should never, ever say to a fish demon.

But she doesn’t have any magical powers of her own. Is her common sense and know-how (not to mention her outrageous fashion sense) enough to conquer a world of monsters, foul creatures and prowling undead?

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.

The Myth of the Peaceful Writer’s Life

The Myth of the Peaceful Writer's Life

What? I can’t hear you. WHAT?

I know so many writers who claim that they need absolute silence in order to write. I used to be one of them.

As I write this, we’re having a hardwood floor refinished in the room directly above my office.

If you’ve never had a floor redone, I envy you. You probably still have your hearing.

It turns out that old hardwood boards are incredibly acoustic. And if you grind on them with two-ton industrial vacuum-equipped sanders, you get what is quite possibly one of the loudest sounds in the known universe.

It’s a noise so painfully loud, you can plug your ears and shout to the person next to you, and they don’t even know you’re there. A 747 could land on my front lawn, and I wouldn’t know.

Right now, there are probably people at NASA scratching their heads over the cosmic feedback spewing from these machines.
