I'm Back...

  Hey guys!


A lot of you know that I took around a year off (after my stepmother passed away) to do other things and gather myself and recover from burn out! Anyway, I'm back now, and the first order of business is to finish the Edgefield Slayers series. 

I've begun book 3, Fallen, and hope to have it finished sometime in late October/early November. I'll post more when it gets closer to the finish, including cover and blurb and some excerpts to refresh your minds about books one and two--Marked and Stolen. I really loved those books, though I went the way of reverse harem--so if you haven't read them yet, be warned.

My plans for 2021 include a new urban fantasy series with another strong, badass heroine. Straight urban fantasy like Rune Alexander, no reverse harem or pararom. I can't tell you how very much I'm looking forward to that! Romance is hard, you guys. My idea of romance is like the love story between Rune and Z and Rune and the berserker. I can do that. 

Thanks to all of you who remain on my FB and in my Laken's Dark Ravens group, keeping me company while I sort myself out, despite the fact that I've been pretty absent and bookless. :D 

I'm glad to be back.

Coming Friday, July 5th!


Stolen, Edgefield Slayers book two, has a release date! 


The book will be available Friday, July 5th on Amazon. I'll come back to post the link as soon as I have it.

If you haven't yet started this paranormal reverse harem series, here's the link for Marked, Edgefield Slayers book one

You can also use the 'look inside' feature to get an idea of the book. I'm having a great time writing this series, and hope it does well enough that I can continue with it.

In other news, Tantor Media approached me with an offer for the audio rights to Marked (ES 1) and I signed the contract! So the audiobook of Marked has a release date of August 13.

Here's the blurb for Stolen, and the cover is below. I'm in love with these covers, by the way!

Marked, Edgefield Slayers book 1
Stolen, Edgefield Slayers book 2
Untitled, Edgefield Slayers book 3 in progress

---

A dangerous enemy returns and threatens the city and everyone Krista loves, and the only thing that might stop him is sacrifice.
The question is, whose?
--

When a powerful demon lord discovers he has the ability to steal souls to gain power, Krista Lennox and the Edgefield Slayers must face a darkness like they've never known to protect the city's most vulnerable humans.

Surrounded by the men who love her and beginning to accept the desires of her heart, Krista embraces her life—hard battles, hot nights, dangerous magic…
And powerful darkness.

Is she strong enough to resist the darkness, or will she finally surrender to its seductive call?

My other paranormal reverse harem series is complete. Love reverse harem? You'll want to read the Silverlight series as well as Edgefield Slayers!

Have a happy 4th!

BLURB:

Making mistakes is part of life.
But sometimes, a mistake can cost you everything.

When her world is invaded by an influx of demons, slayer Krista Lennox calls upon something even worse to help her defeat them.

Too bad he's more inclined to cause her trouble than to fix her problems. And too bad he thinks she's...interesting.

As the city begins to lose hope and Krista's situation becomes dire, she knows two things for sure.

Magic is not enough.
And time is running out.

"If you like snark and humor with your emotion and darkness, kickass female protagonists and dangerous, protective men, you need to read this series!"

Here's the link:

Final Rune Alexander

Rune Alexander book 11 is now available. It's the final book in this series.
I'll miss Rune and the crew, but it was time!

-



Rune Alexander's life is full of darkness and violence, and she wouldn't have it any other way.

Does she ever get tired of fighting the monsters?

Nope.

As long as she has her beloved crew at her side, she can face--and fight--anything.

But when the past comes back to haunt one of her crew, a friend she thought lost forever struggles to return, and a terrible debt is repaid, Rune learns that sometimes, the toughest battles aren't fighting the bad guys.

The toughest battles are learning to live with choices she didn't make, new realities she can't change, and circumstances beyond her control.
