Be Very Quiet, I’m Hunting Vampires

The Damned and Path to Damnation were published in 2015, and A Taste So Bittersweet (The Damned told in Fiona’s POV) was released in 2016. Since then, I’ve tried writing Tuck 3 to no avail. If you look back through the blog, you can see where I thought Tuck was writing well and that I’d made headway, but nothing ever took for too long.

But, I’m happy to report that Tuck 3 is finally underway…for real, this time 🙂 After five or six false starts, I’ve finally found the story that Tuck wants told and I’m very excited about this one! I’m almost afraid to say too much about the book in fear of jinxing the momentum, but I will say that this story involves vampyr and strigoi, and that we meet new slayers. One of which is mentioned by Tuck in Path to Damnation. We also meet another one of Tuck’s brothers, and we get to see her in new locations.

For now, that’s all I’ll say. Once I’m further into the book I’ll give you little glimpses of the story. I’ve already made the book trailer for it, so there’s that to look forward to as well 🙂

And now, I bid you a happy Monday! I’m off to hunt vampires.

Christmas Morning

Good morning, and Happy Christmas to those who celebrate! Happy Monday to those who do not 🙂 We have beautiful snow falling quietly down this morning, and it’s just so peaceful that it makes me feel peaceful as I watch it gently fall.

Confession: I have never been able to sleep on Christmas morning. I’ve always been up between 2am and 4am, even now as an adult…and without children 😀 I’m sure it annoyed the hell out of my mom and siblings growing up LOL But now it’s more about the feeling of the holiday season rather than “Come on, let’s see what Santa brought us!”

October through December have always been my favorite months, and not just because of the holidays. They’d still be my favorite months even if the holidays were taken out. And to help celebrate this wonderful time of year, I am going to be doing a giveaway!

DATES: December 25 through January 1st

HOW TO ENTER: Simply leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite season is.

PRIZE PACK: an Isles and West hoodie (several colors to choose from), an October Weeks mug, an Isles and West keychain, an ebook copy of The Damned and Path to Damnation, and a $5 gift card to Amazon.

Series Saturday: Jesse Petersen

Hello, and welcome to another Series Saturday! Today I’m featuring Jesse Petersen’s Living With the Dead series.

I instantly fell in love with this series from the first page of book one ❤ I mean, you go to marriage counselling only to find your therapist eating another client, and suddenly you and your spouse are thrown right into a zombie apocalypse- who wouldn’t love that? This series has drama, action, comedy in the right places, and at the center is a married couple that started out on the verge of divorce. I wish there had been more in the series, but it did end on the right note and I love rereading the series when I get the chance.

****

A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse.

Meet Sarah and David.

Once upon a time they met and fell in love. But now they’re on the verge of divorce and going to couples’ counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things – the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client’s throat.

Meet the Zombies.

Now, Sarah and David are fighting for survival in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. But, just because there are zombies, doesn’t mean your other problems go away. If the zombies don’t eat their brains, they might just kill each other.

 

The Zombie Apocalypse has been good to Sarah and David. Their marriage is better than ever. They communicate well, share responsibilities, and now, they’re starting a business. ZombieBusters-for all your zombie extermination needs.

There are lots of zombies and that means lots of customers…Except one of them doesn’t want the zombies dead, he wants them alive and ready for experimentation. Mad scientists make for difficult clients and this time, Sarah and David might have bitten off more than they can chew.

 

Sarah and David have survived the zombie apocalypse. They stood side by side and fought the undead, mad scientists, and even bionic monsters until the unthinkable happened. A zombie bite. But not even that could stop them. Now, with a possible cure in hand, they’re headed east, looking for a safe zone behind the rumored “Wall.” They’re feeling pretty optimistic.

That is until Dave stops sleeping and starts lifting huge objects.

 

Once a zombie, always a zombie?

Dave and Sarah are pretty happy in the Middle-of-Nowhere, Montana. They’ve done their part in saving the world (kind of) and now they’re settling in for a long life of killing straggler zombies. Well, they think that’s what they’re doing until a helicopter lands on their front lawn with old friends Nicole Nessing and Robbie “The Kid” on board. They propose a dangerous plan: Dave and Sarah must return to Seattle and use Dave’s Superpowers to help with the final stages of a formula that will not only wipe out most of the zombies, but innocluate humans against the virus.

Going back to Seattle was never in the plan. Especially since Sarah has a few secrets of her own that could change her marriage, increase the danger they’re facing and even alter the future they’re so desperately trying to save.

****

There are short stories in the series…

When the Zombie Apocalypse began in Seattle and spread within days to almost the entire western half the country, the survivors had to figure out how to deal with the plague and live one day at a time. These are their stories.

If you liked Jesse Petersen’s zombie comedies Married With Zombies, Flip This Zombie and Eat Slay Love, these nine stories are set in the same world, but from the perspective of other survivors.

 

Avery Andrews is her name and directing celebrity telethons after tragedies is her game. But the Northwestern Zombie Outbreak isn’t your average tragedy… and once the infection spreads to the studio, Avery and her crew will have to worry about staying alive, not ratings.

 

****

I do suggest checking these books out. If you like zombies, romantic comedies, and action, I think you’ll enjoy these books 🙂

Happy December

Hello, and happy first day of December 🙂 I hope you’ve all been well. I apologize for the blog silence- I’ve had a lot going on, including surgery, and that put me behind on a few things. Just a few things for you all today:

First: the Isles and West series has a new logo! Thanks to the lovely Niki at Once Upon A Design for creating this lovely logo for me. Look forward to some giveaways, swag, and merchandise in the near future.

 

Speaking of the Isles and West series…

If you hurry you can still get GHOULTOWN on sale for $0.99!

 

Second: Sera’s book is still writing well. Because of my surgery, I didn’t write anything for about two weeks, but I’m now starting to dive back in. It’s in the last quarter phase, so I’m about to put her through the Hells…because of I am 🙂

Third: I have a book recommendation for you. I’ve just finished Deadly Storm by Skye Knizley, which is the tenth book in the Storm Chronicles. I loved it, and suggest if you haven’t read the series to give it a try, and if you do read the series- go get this one right now! It was worth the long wait 🙂

And that is pretty much it for right now 🙂 I’m hoping to have news soon on one of the books I have on submission, and I’m hoping Sera’s book will be out by Spring 2018. Stay tuned!

 

Progress Report

Happy Saturday! I just realized that it’s been a bit since I gave a progress report on my writing. So, here we go:

Sera’s Book: going well! Probably another 20k before the rough draft is done. Getting close! And yes, it does have a title, but I’ll wait to announce that once the first round of revising is done 🙂

On Submission: the first book of a trilogy that is on submission is…well, I’m still waiting to hear 🙂 This is the nature of publishing and that’s okay. I’m very excited to share this series and hope to have news for you before the end of the year. I think you’re going to love the characters, and the mysteries I set upon them.

Other Stories: I finally nailed the perfect opening for Tuck 3, and that makes me so happy that happy isn’t an adequate enough word 🙂 Hopefully this will now make the book write faster and more smoothly. We get to meet new slayers and deepen the world as well as put poor Tuck through the ringer again…because that’s how I roll ❤

I’m also working on two other stories, but I don’t want to say too much right now. Once I’m deeper into those books I will talk about them more.

And that’s my progress report. I know it’s been a while since I released new material, but these things take time ❤ Good things are coming soon!
