Big News!

I woke up to some amazing news this morning:

Volatile Bonds was nominated by RT Book Reviews for the Best Indie Urban Fantasy Award of 2017!

I am so excited and honored to nominated. RT Book Reviews has been incredibly supportive of my books, and the fact that my first big indie book was nominated is thrilling.

DIRTY DEALS LEAD TO DEADLY ENDS.

When the Magic Enforcement Agency is called out to the scene of a dirty magic lab explosion, a body with a bullet wound is found in the smoldering ruins. As Detective Kate Prospero and her partner, Special Agent Drew Morales, hunt down the killer, they uncover evidence that a dangerous new coven may be operating in the Cauldron.

It’s not long before the bodies start piling up, and the heat is on for the team to make an arrest. Solving the murders will require unraveling dangerous alliances between the city’s dirty magic covens. And if they’re not careful, the new complexities of Morales and Prospero’s own partnership threaten to make a volatile situation downright deadly.

Cover Reveal-High Lonesome Sound

Check out the gorgeous cover of my Appalachian gothic novel, HIGH LONESOME SOUND.

About High Lonesome Sound:

In the sleepy mountain town of Moon Hollow, Virginia, there is a church with a crooked steeple. No one will say for sure how it got that way, but it’s reason the whole town gathers every Decoration Day to honor the dead.

But this year, there are two fresh graves up on Cemetery Hill, a stranger’s come to town, and the mountain’s song is filled with dark warnings.

The good people of Moon Hollow are about to learn that some secrets are too painful to bear, and some spirits are too restless to stay buried.

High Lonesome Sound will launch on February 13, just in time for Women in Horror Month.

New Year, New Look

Welcome to 2018! To celebrate the start of a new year, I’ve given one of my series a little facelift.

The Murdoch Vampires series has been given brand new covers and titles. These paranormal romantic comedies were originally published as THE HOT SCOT and REBEL CHILD under my Kate Eden pen name. For the time-being they will be Amazon exclusive, but if there is enough demand I’ll expand distribution down the road.

 

The Art of Loving a Vampire:

This vampire who hates complications and the ambitious curator with trust issues are about to learn the fine art of love.

“If you’re looking for a fun read then this is the book for you. The dialogue was sarcastic and super funny, and the pages seemed to turn themselves the story moved so quickly.” —Liliana Hart, New York Times Bestselling author

The Taming of the Vamp:

“Raven and Callum’s romance is fabulous fun! Loved it!” —Suzanne McLeod, author of the Spellcrackers series

The Chosen Ones Is Out

Sabina Kane fans (especially overseas) have been asking me for a long time when they could get all of her extra stories in one place. Well, today’s the day. Last year, I released a print-only edition of this collection, but now I’m able to offer it to you in ebook, as well.

As a bonus, I’m including the first Kate Prospero novella, FIRE WATER, which is a prequel story that tells about one of her early cases as a rookie cop. If you haven’t tried the Prospero’s War series this is a great way to test-drive it before you commit.

All in all, you’ll get two Sabina Kane novellas (Rusted Veins and Fool’s Gold), a Sabina Kane short story (Violet Tendencies), as well as a Prospero’s War novellas (Fire Water) for less than $4. If you bought each of these as separate ebooks it would be almost three times as expensive.

Kick-Ass Writing Playlist

I’ve spoken many times about how important writing is to my writing process. I finally put together a list of my go-to songs when I need to knock out a lot of words. Some of these will get traded for others as I tired, but several of them have been on heavy rotation for a decade because they always help me get in The Zone. Enjoy!

Volatile Bonds is Here!

It’s finally the day! Today is the official launch of Volatile Bonds–the fourth novel in the Prospero’s War series.

Magic is a drug. Dirty deals lead to deadly ends.
When the Magic Enforcement Agency is called out to the scene of a dirty magic lab explosion, a body with a bullet wound is found in the smoldering ruins. As Detective Kate Prospero and her partner, Special Agent Drew Morales, hunt down the killer, they uncover evidence that a dangerous new coven may be operating in the Cauldron.

It’s not long before the bodies start piling up, and the heat is on for the team to make an arrest. Solving the murders will require unraveling dangerous alliances between the city’s dirty magic covens. And if they’re not careful, the new complexities of Morales and Prospero’s own partnership threaten to make a volatile situation downright deadly.

Note: If your favorite local book store doesn’t carry Volatile Bonds, please ask them to order it for you. 

Audiobooks will be available on October 31 from your favorite audiobook retailer. The delay was necessary to ensure we were able to continue with Morgan Hallett, the original narrator of the series. Going forward, the audio won’t have this sort of delay. Thanks for your patience!

I had so much fun revisiting these characters and I’m already hard at work on book 5, which should release next spring. Happy reading!

Bookseller Info for Volatile Bonds

Hello lovely, wonderful, smart booksellers!

First, thank you so much for your support of my books in the past. So many of you have hand-sold my books to future Wells fans, and I am eternally grateful for that.

Second, you might have heard that I’m self-publishing the rest of the Prospero’s War series. Book four is titled VOLATILE BONDS and releases on September 12. In an effort to provide as seamless a transition as possible for my readers, I am making the books available in print, ebook, and audio.

The good news is that this means your customers who want my books can easily buy them from you. The bad news is that since I don’t have the muscle of a Big Five publisher behind me, it’s harder for me to make sure those copies get to you.

To that end, I am using Ingram Spark as my main distribution channel for print. This allowed me to offer bookstores the highest discount as well as making the books returnable. It may take a bit longer to get them out this way, but in the end, I think this is the best possible option for all of us–especially the readers.

The ordering information is below. Thanks!

Volatile Bonds
Prospero’s War 4
