“Do you ever practice being quiet?” Bengal frowned.
“No. I even talk to myself.”
“That fails to surprise me.”
I shrugged. “I always talk to the most interesting person in the room.”
--Carter Strike, Siamese shifter, all around snark master.
I am so happy with how the cover for Cat's Chance in Hell turned out! And Carter has such attitude! What can you expect from a cat (shifter)? Bengal Damon-Cowles doesn't know what he's in for!
Carter's story is almost complete! I'll be turning over the finished draft to Greg Tremblay/Boudreaux in the very near future, so hopefully the audiobook will follow close on the heels of the ebook/paperback. I've really enjoyed writing this story and have discovered so much more about the world Carter, Tommy, and Poe live in. This book has lots of cameos from characters in The Demon's in the Details and some twists that even made me go, "Wow, I didn't see that one coming." I'll let you all know when I plan to publish it -- shouldn't be long now.
I don't have a blurb yet, because it's always the last thing I write. But I promise, it's coming.
This story will take us back to the Much Ado About Demons world -- Nico, Flame, and all their friends. This is the story of Sir Raaf and Azrael the incubus. It's a redemption story of a sort and I'm planning to write a lot of it over Nanowrimo this year.
I don't have a blurb or final cover for it yet, but should have both in the not too distant future. Alex Corza has been doing amazing covers for me and this one will be no different!
What's my story about you ask? It's going back into my Much Ado About Demons world (Verona), and is Kem and Tuli's story. If you've read In Fairy Verona, you met Kem and Tuli briefly as their impromptu marriage ceremony was interrupted. It comes in at just over 40K, so it's a novella, but I still managed to pack a lot into the pages.
Demon for the Win:
Dryad Tuli Cato has 3 rules he lives by: No relationships, no drama, no trouble.
When gorgeous incubus Kem Balthasar offers him a night of no-strings passion, Tuli readily agrees.
Only that no-strings night sure feels like a lot more.
Okay, Tuli has 2 rules he lives by: No drama, no trouble.
Being the sous chef at the most exclusive restaurant in town makes no drama a challenge. Especially when the kitchen’s in an uproar after a staff member turns up dead. Murdered.
Um, Tuli has 1 rule he lives by: No trouble.
Surely, he can stick to this 1 simple rule. . . except it turns out, he might be the murderer’s next target.
Fine. Tuli has 3 GOALS he lives by: date Kem, become the executive chef, stay alive. Not necessarily in that order.
Sounds easy, right?
For those of you who are active on Facebook: I've opened my reader group: Maslow's Mischief, Magic, and Murder. I'd love to have you there! We'll be talking books, I'll post snippets, and have giveaways. I aim to make this space one huge blanket fort where we can all go to get away from the outside world.
The Amazing Sarah Jo Chreene did a portrait of Twig and Quinn! I absolutely love it! Expect to see this image show up on swag and possibly merch in the near future.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Sarah Jo's work, she did a rockin' cover of "Eryx" for Jaclyn Osborn and she did her very first graphic novel for "Try" by Ella Franks.
