The Progeny Series Cover Reveal!

The Progeny Series has undergone a cover transformation thanks to Cora Graphics! The new look should be available on Amazon by the end of the weekend and other venues by March 1, 2014.

If you like The Vampire Diaries, you will love The Progeny Series!

  The Progeny - Free e-book
“No fate other than the one I choose.” The timeless creed, and tattoo, bore by the Rousseau’s— a vampire clan with the purest bloodline of any vampire family. Out of this clandestine group came one who was different, yet the same: Ascher - a half-bloodling— half- human, half vampire.

Ascher questions the purpose for his existence and which world he truly belongs to: the human world or the vampire world. Two months from sealing to Ursula— a prearranged union to a woman he abhors — he’s at his wit’s end. He knows if he calls off the sealing, the Romanian clan will strike with deadly force, but he cannot see eternity with a cold empty shell of a woman like Ursula.

Just when he thought life was complicated enough, he meets Shauna— a beautiful, bi-racial human wiccan — and immediately develops an unshakable attraction to her. She makes him feel alive and vital despite his origins and Ascher makes a decision that turns his immortal world upside down.

Blood Bonds - $2.99

“Forever. For always. For eternity.”

The ties that bind two hearts are powerful. For Ascher Rousseau and Shauna McCutchin, it’s more than just a blood bond. Their union is that of vampire legend. Their love is a predestined prophecy foretold centuries ago.

It’s a week before Ascher and Shauna's sealing and the couple is making final preparations for their eternity, but Ascher's ex has other plans. Ursula is hell-bent on revenge—revenge fueled by lover's scorn and her father's death—and she begins breeding a fresh army of newborn darklings to do her bidding.

When Ursula finds a new weapon—an ally with the capability to dismantle the Rousseau clan— Ascher and Shauna's bond is tested and they must stand together against Ursula or lose each other for eternity.

Blood Promise - $2.99
“Their love is fated by an ancient prophecy. Now the promise is fulfilled.”

Ascher Rousseau is a half-human, half vampire whose life has been a series of prophecies and predictions. After finding incredible love and passion with Shauna—a Wiccan with powers beyond anything he’s ever known—he seals to her and hopes for happiness. But his enemies seek to destroy all that he loves, and he finds that happiness never lasts for long.

Darkness is descending and a vampiric revolution is nearing. A new brood of hatchlings is born to join their darkling brothers, in preparation for war. A preordained chain of events is set into motion that could lead to the rise of the demonic “cloaked one” and his half-human fallen children, while ending humanity—as we know it.

Can a supernatural love and the loyal bond of a family save the Rousseaus and the world from certain extinction?

Blood Reborn - $0.99 for a limited time.
“Hell hath no fury like a Wiccan reborn.”

Shauna McCutchin and Ascher Rousseau share a deep and passionate bond that merges their Wiccan and vampire worlds. Destined, they’ve endured trials and suffered unimaginable pain in their quest for a happily ever after.

Endowed with amazing supernatural abilities and the added attributes of her new vampire existence, Shauna is a force to rival all others—a dangerous new breed of vampire that defies conventional wisdom.

Darkness shrouds the couple’s pasts and enemies are determined to ruin their future. Will Shauna surrender to the evil side of her nature, or will she stand by Ascher’s side as the Rousseaus prepare for the revolution?

Shauna will either be an immortal miracle or an unholy menace.

Release Date - March 17, 2014! 

YEARNING: A BLOOD REBORN NOVEL (The Progeny Series #4.5)

“Destiny will not be denied.”                          
Like their siblings, Katy McCutchin—a powerful double Wiccan with otherworldly powers—and Gabe Rousseau—a full-blooded vampire—are destined. They’ve conquered many obstacles to be together. With their relationship at a crossroads and chaos erupting all around them, it’s time to take the steps that will finally link them for eternity.

Thanks for swinging in today!

Until next time,

Steve Williams is getting a face lift...

Yes, my novels in the Steve Williams series are getting a face lift! And it's more than just newly branded covers.

The earlier books in the series have undergone some transformations as well.  I took some of the feedback into consideration and softened some of the more intense scenes. The subject matter is still disturbing - after all, we are dealing with serial killers - but some of the more unsettling scenes have been modified.  I'm sure I will still offend some readers, after all, the subject matter itself elicits very strong reactions.

If you really like the current covers, you might want to pick up the paperbacks now before the big reveal! You never know, the current covers may end up being a collectors item one day.

Stay tuned for previews and the exact release date for the series, including the boxed set.

In the meantime, for those e-book-centric individuals, Dark Reckoning - the first book in the Steve Williams Series - is free.  You can find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Itunes, Smashwords, Sony, Kobo and a few other outlets!

Have a lovely weekend and stay tuned!

Until next time,

Valentine's Day...

I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day.

There. I said it.

In the middle ages, the holiday morphed into the holiday of love and early on, that meant flowers, candy and hand written notes to express one's love.

Now-a-days, this has become such a commercialized holiday that I pretty much ignore it. I love getting flowers and chocolate, but really, it doesn't need to be on Valentine's Day when florists jack up the prices of bouquets just because they can.

A handpicked daisy from a field would be more romantic. Especially, since I live in the northeast, where finding a daisy at this time of year is impossible.

A hand written note would mean more than a card bought in the story.

Chocolate - well, there's never anything wrong with chocolate, dark chocolate specifically. :)

So what are you're thoughts on St. Valentine's Day?  Fan or not-so-much?

Thanks for swinging in.
I do hope you have a happy Valentine's Day, whether you buy into the holiday or not!
Until next time,
