SCALES – Book 1 of the Fate and Fire Trilogy

51ZaYzr-3DL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

Tessa Conley isn’t ready to go back home to Austin when her summer course in London comes to an end. She gets her wish as she steps into a new world of urban fantasy and mystery when she is transformed into a living gargoyle, complete with wings and a tail. Mostly human by day and gargoyle by night, Tessa is not alone in her new world with other gargoyles in the bookstore she now calls home. Bree, her best friend from Austin, is kidnapped and held in the UK. Tessa uncovers the mystery of her birthright, and learns what kind of monster she’s become in order to save her friend… if she can survive the horror her new life holds in store.

From one of the many 5 Star Reviews of the book-

 Absolutely love the authors voice in this. The characters have depth and texture to them and the setting is described in rich detail. Written in first person, Tessa, the protagonist comes off as authentic and credible character who’s pains and hopes are believable as she struggles to accept the fantasy world she’s entered. Really nice job for a new author.

 A Hacked-up Holiday Massacre

A-Hacked-Up-Holiday-Massacre1

Contains the first release of “Sunshine Beamed”- and yes, the reprint is above in ONE. This anthology holds a special place for me because it was my first ever published work. Also important- look at the table of contents here. There are stories written by the greats of my genre. Jack Ketchum, who I am blessed to call a friend and mentor, the amazing Joe r. Lansdale… open it up and have a look. Love feeling warm and fuzzy during the holidays? This is a new twist. Be warned. If you love horror stories, this antho won’t disappoint you. Here’s what I wrote when I was first published- (I’m such a nerd lol)  “I am thrilled to tell you that Pill Hill Press has released “A Hacked-Up Holiday Massacre” which features my story “Sunshine Beamed”, a psychological horror story set at Christmas time.  Sunshine is a sweetheart of a mentally challenged teenager who grew up in family dysfunction.  Becoming her own best advocate, Sunshine celebrates the holiday in her own, special way.”

Irreverent merriment. Diabolical debauchery. Gory good times. Editor Shane McKenzie has gutted the holiday spirit and left it to bleed out on the pages of this gruesome, extreme horror tribute to special occasions. Includes stories by the following masters of the macabre: Jack Ketchum, Joe R. Lansdale, Bentley Little, Nate Southard, Lee Thomas, Wrath James White and More!

An Uncommon Collection

51w0bmWs9uL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Contains the first release of “Scales”- but when it was only a fledgling short story! That’s right, SCALES the novel, used to be a short story that I expanded to become a full-length novel and Book 1 of the Fate and Fire Trilogy. It has changed a lot.

Librorum Taberna is no ordinary bookstore, and Ezra Finfrock is no ordinary proprietor.

Though the shop is amazing, the books within Librorum Taberna are truly extraordinary. From mundane to magical, horrifying to humorous, these books have the power to change lives. Be warned, Ezra never guarantees the results, and he never gives a refund. Since 1996, the Colorado Springs Fiction Writers Group has been helping local writers improve their craft. The fifteen authors featured in An Uncommon Collection explore the dusty aisles of Librorum Taberna and meet the quirky proprietor, Ezra Finfrock. What they uncover may even change your life.

SCALES- Book 1 of the Fate and Fire Trilogy

 

Scales.Strigidae.WrapHere’s the full wrap of the cover. I LOVE the look of this. The artist captured many elements of the story here and made the art relevant. That’s not always something that happens easily. This is the reprint that was released in October of 2015. Book2 will hopefully be released in the summer of 2016.

Tessa Conley isn’t ready to go back home to Austin when her summer course in London comes to an end. She gets her wish as she steps into a new world of urban fantasy and mystery when she is transformed into a living gargoyle, complete with wings and a tail. Mostly human by day and gargoyle by night, Tessa is not alone in her new world with other gargoyles in the bookstore she now calls home. Bree, her best friend from Austin, is kidnapped and held in the UK. Tessa uncovers the mystery of her birthright, and learns what kind of monster she’s become in order to save her friend… if she can survive the horror her new life holds in store.
