I spent the day trying to figure out better ways to promote the books. You guys, writing is easy compared with working to get the books out there. Anyway, I read some articles, changed some keywords on Amazon, tweeted, posted on Instagram, posted on FB, and did some research.

I even managed to get in some exercise! (Then I ate part of a banana cream pie but we won't discuss that.)

Rune Alexander book 10 (yes, I have the title, blurb, and the cover, but it'll be 'book 10' until I have the release party!) is coming along nicely--all bloody and violent and full of darkness and emotion, just the way you all like it. :)

Shiv Crew is $0.99 and is free for those of you on KU, so please--if you're reading this, go get the book, tell someone you know, blog, tweet, or FB the link. I'd appreciate it so much. I could use your help getting this book out to more readers.

The link to SHIV CREW is

I'm off to get in a few hours of writing. Have a great evening, everybody!

We, the Forsaken

*MATURE YA. Ages 16 and up*
Sixteen-year-old Teagan realizes she's not exactly safe in her little town of Crowbridge, but she is surviving.
She fights the few baddies who wander into her town, understands the importance of silence, and learns the true meaning of isolation.
For two long, lonely years.
Then, with the arrival of one strange little girl, everything changes.
Teagan discovers just how isolated and sheltered she's been when the outside world stomps into Crowbridge, bringing with it darkness, death, and destruction.
When something unspeakable occurs and changes everything she is, the hunted becomes the hunter as Teagan prepares to take back her world.
She must conquer her demons as she begins her search for two things--the precious one she lost and the savage, evil beings who want to enslave her.
"One of the best YA books I have read. It has a Hunger Games feel...but a little darker."
Tammy Lawson Sullivan
"We, the Forsaken is an amazing read and Teagan is the accidental heroine that you want to believe in. This was a well-written, quick paced journey to our world in ruins. The world building, or rather world destruction, was quite clever – but leaves me wanting to know so much more! I am looking forward to the next book in the Forsaken series."
Jo Dawson
"OM EFFING GEE !!!!!!!!
I've read many zombie/dystopian/vampire books, but this one takes not only the cake but every damn cake in the shop..."
"Wow. I'm still processing this book. It was unlike anything I've read before. When I started We, the Forsaken, I wasn't sure what I was getting into. I knew it was a YA Dystopian novel, but wow. It is unlike any YA Dystopian I have read..."
Elizabeth S.
"...I broke down and started it. Less than 2 chapters in I had to put the book down and walk away it was so intense. As I read it just got more and more nail biting, edge of your seat type action. I'm seriously pissed that I'm now waiting for 3 books from this author. She's a diabolical genius. This is not your typical ya book so don't let that scare you off. If the heroine were not 16 this would be an adult book..."

I walked back the way I’d come, bloody machete in my hand. I checked the dumpsters. One of them had become the laboring lady’s coffin. I didn’t want one of them to become the child’s.
The sun was almost hot, though summer was over and fall had come. Winter wasn’t my favorite season anymore. In the winter, everything was gray. Summer with its yellows and greens and warmth and longer days made my mood less heavy.
Winter was when I went a little mad, and I did not look forward to it.
But it was coming, whether I wanted it to or not.
Having some company would make those long, cold months much less dreary.
“Little girl,” I yelled.
I heard a sharp, metallic clank in the distance, and immediately I stiffened and closed my mouth. I didn’t yell again.
I didn’t believe I’d find the kid. Most likely she’d bolted when she’d witnessed me chopping up her mother, and she wasn’t likely to return for fear I’d do the same to her.
I kept an eye out on my way back to the front of the mall. The mutant’s body and head were still spread across the parking lot, along with vivid splashes of his blood. My spare machete still lay where I’d dropped it.
The air was still and silent and held a heaviness I was accustomed to. It usually meant I wasn’t alone—that baddies were near. My baddies radar had become super sensitive over time, and even if I didn’t always come face to face with the enemy, I never doubted they were close. Not when I felt them this fiercely.
There were baddies other than the mutants.
And I needed to get my ass home.

Updates and a FREE book!


I'm doing a takeover at BOOKS ALL THINGS PARANORMAL AND ROMANCE on May 4th at 7:00 pm Eastern. There'll be games, giveaways, and lots of fun. Come join us!

Also, Racheal, who manages my Facebook author page, is going to help me host a cover reveal party in a couple of weeks. I'll let you guys know when we've established a time and day. It'll likely be an all day event, so you can drop in at any time and have some fun!

As you probably know by now, we're doing a promotion of Shiv Crew, and it's free for two more days, so tell everyone you know! FREE. Why wouldn't you download it? :D

Here's a review from the many amazing reviews posted on Amazon for Shiv Crew. If you haven't yet dived into this series, maybe this will get you over there to grab book one--and it won't cost you a dime! I'm currently working on book 10 in this series, so if you like to binge read, grab some popcorn and prepare to do some major binging!
"Fans of the Anita Blake series…meet Rune & Shiv Crew. While I enjoyed the AB series, I found that I enjoyed the Rune series soooo much more!
Cane pulled me into Rune’s dark world from the very first page. Her writing is beautifully dark and full of emotion. You know you have picked up a good book when you are able to connect with each character on such an emotional level that you simply can’t put the book down. Sleep? Who needs it, you have to know what Rune & the Crew are up to next. And as you get closer to the end of the book, no matter how much slower you read trying to avoid the final page, you smile, because you know Rune can’t possibly stay out of trouble and when Rune is in trouble, Shiv Crew is close behind baby!
This series has it all. I laughed, I cried and at times I got down right pissed off. It’s not always sunshine and rainbows folks, there will always be the good, the bad and the ugly. But one thing is for sure, through it all, you will find Rune & Shiv Crew kicking some ass. Oh! and let’s not forget another very important factor, Shiv Crew is deliciously HOT! Need I say more? So open that book and hang on tight, you are in for the ride of your life. This is a must READ series."
