Mysteries and secrets abound, new alliances formed, dangerous sacrifices to be made and don’t forget to keep an eye out for characters from the SKINWALKER SERIES.

1st Excerpt Follows:

SOULTRACKER 6: EXCERPT DEMON BONES

All his life Saleem, Crown Prince of Mithras, had been taught that fire was neither friend nor foe. Whoever had come up with that piece of prized bullshit should be drawn and quartered.
Maybe even hanged. And then burned alive.
No. Wait. That wasn’t right.
Saleem frowned as he chased after the thoughts that had flitted into his head so briefly. Something about the logical progression didn’t compute, didn’t feel…right.
But, for the life of him, he couldn’t recall exactly what about the thought was illogical. And for that matter, he was no longer entirely certain what it was he’d been thinking of…. Something about burning flames….
Suspended from a pair of manacles fixed high on the stone wall behind him, his head hung forward, shoulder-length black hair providing an oily curtain to at least partly obscure his face–and the frown he’d briefly allowed himself.
But any reprieve from his torture was predictably short-lived.
Saleem let out a ragged—though near-imperceptible—breath, allowing the heated air to slip between his lips as slowly as possible, so slowly that neither of the guards watching over him would register his wakefulness.
Given that Saleem’s current residence was a cold, damp cell in the furthest corner of the dungeons that sprawled beneath the ancient palace of Temara, the presence of the guards was redundant at best.
And yet, every time Saleem had been brought to the cell in the last two days, Agent Blake–or Nevins as he was called in his youth–had instructed them to stand just inside the doors, and to act upon even the slightest of movements, reminding Saleem that not only was he a captive in his own home, with his freedom of movement around the city taken from him, but that he was no longer allowed the liberty to blink or swallow, or breathe for that matter.
He’d learned quickly enough to hoard away his strength between sessions with Omega’s mindmelder Ward, knew the mage would—with his insistent torture—reduce him to little shreds of himself before the man was satisfied his ‘treatment’ was over for the day.
And now, on returning to full consciousness, Saleem had a suspicion he knew what those elusive thoughts contained—probably something regretful, and very likely filled with anger. Both were a waste of time because neither regret nor fury would free him from his bonds.
Stupid. So very stupid.
Saleem had been so naive coming home, returning to Mithras with the belief that his brother would be glad to see him, imagining that Rizwan would sigh with relief that his big brother had returned.
Even more pathetically, he had held onto the hope that Riz would be eager to help Saleem devise a plan to free both themselves and their realm from the chokehold placed upon them by Omega and Division 7—in his opinion one and the same thing.
But he’d been wrong. So utterly wrong.
Rizwan’s brotherly arms had been neither welcoming nor loving.
The memory, and the emotions accompanying it, sent Saleem’s jaw tight, the tensing of muscles eliciting a pang of concern—and a brief flicker of regret—before rock hard knuckles slammed into his face.
Pain flared, lightning strikes searing through his jaw and temple, and settling within his brain. The pain didn’t abate—not that he’d expected it to. A special gift from the mindmage Ward—the man’s exact words.
He’d fiddled within Saleem’s mind, tweaked a little here, adjusted something there, ensuring every experience of pain, from a flicker of a throb to searing agony ripping into his very soul, would be amplified, and would last ten times longer—and Saleem was using the estimate of ‘ten times’ in the loosest of terms.
The mindmage had been especially proud to find he’d succeeded, had hovered over Saleem, snickering and muttering self-praise that he’d achieved what most mindmages considered a difficult task—to reduce a powerful djinn to a mewling mess. Albeit temporarily.
Ward had been right of course—he had succeeded. But only so far as Saleem allowed him to. A djinn was powerful, and djinn-fire was an unknown quantity to most mages, even more so to non-djinn mages.
But though Saleem despised the idea of being the perpetual punching bag, resident lab-rat, and the daily focus of his brother’s scorn, he’d bided his time, enduring the torture, holding out hope that help would come, help for both himself and his people.

🎉SHADOW SIGHT COMING SOON! 🎉
Allegra’s visions lead the team on a trail across the world, to a disaster that is not all that it seems. The infamous Lord Langcourt hasn’t given up on his quest to kill the last surviving Oracle of Delphi, and Allegra must evade his attempts, all while trying again to avoid an armageddon-like disaster event.
When help does come, Allegra must decide if she can take the risk to trust. But in the bigger picture, such a leap of faith is minute, especially when considering Allegra also seeks the truth of who she is and when she comes from. Still, the truth is much stranger than it seems, and Allegra must gather both her strength and her team in order to see it to the end.
No matter the cost.

Happy Release Day to FIRE!!

Fire is Released! Yay! Wow!

The day has finally arrived when FIRE goes into the big big world for readers to enjoy. I began writing this book in October 2011 then set it aside to write Dead Embers- Book 2 in the Valkyrie series. Juggling editing and writing, while preparing to launch Dead Radiance in Feb 2012 was no mean feat and something that pushed me outside my comfort zone simply because I wrote Dead Radiance uninterrupted from start to finish in July 2011, edited it uninterrupted in Sep 2011, then moved on to Fire in Oct 2011.

The Delays!

What happened next pulled me straight into the real world of a writer which is not just tapping away at the keys all day. It’s the juggle and dance of planning, writing, revision, edits, preparation for publication, promotion and marketing. With all the fun stuff how can a girl write?!

So I put Fire aside, finished Dead Embers, wrote a bit more of Fire, released that in Aug 2012

More delays, drugs & zombies!

And then ended up in hospital from Sep to Oct 2012 with a three month semi-drugged (or lets be honest here, drugged is the best way to describe the zombieness of morphine) stint of almost no writing, while preparing for surgery that never happened (thank you stars!)

Publishing other stuff aka What the heck are you thinking?!

I did manage to finish Fire in Dec 2012 though but put it aside again to regroup and publish Skin Deep which had been waiting in the wings originally planned for a Nov 2012 release but delayed to said drug-induced zombieness.

Back on track!! Yay! Wow!

I’m happy to say that at last things are back on track. Fire is now out there for all you lovely people to read. And Dead Chaos is in revisions soon to be released to eager Valkyrie fans.

About Fire!

Maya is just a kid wanting to be normal, rebelling against her upbringing, embarrassed that her parents believe in stuff that’s just myth and legend. But when she smokes a dude (aka kills him dead aka incinerates him to embers and dust) by accident she realizes there’s more to being Maya than she ever knew.

Fire has something for everyone: Gorgeous gods, deadly demons, freaking awesome fire power and lots of sizzling smooches. Not to mention a mythology that has seldom been explored, a peek into what it’s like living with ones self-generated prejudices, and what its like to go way beyond what you have ever expected just to accept something you denied in the first place. How Maya does it is the story of Fire- the Hand of Kali.
