Description:
Valkyrie Bryn Halbrook is broken and damaged…

Struggling to accept the loss of her wings, Bryn’s not sure if she can be a real Valkyrie anymore. But when a mysterious prophecy claims she will be the reason the All-Father dies, she is determined to ensure the prediction will not come to pass.

A visit to the three fates who live beneath the great Tree of life, sends Bryn racing against time to find the missing Heimdall and his horn. As Odin’s life hangs in the balance and Ragnarok draws ever closer, Bryn has to find a way to save Heimdall and Odin before she can discover the truth about who she really is.

In this thrilling instalment of the Valkyrie series Bryn must battle not only the formidable frost giants and the hated God Loki, but she must also find a balance between what she will lose and what she will gain.

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.

Cover Reveal: Fire (the Hand of Kali #1)

So at last it’s COVER REVEAL time for FIRE… Hope you like it as much as I do 🙂

20130630-120205.jpg

Description

Normal people sneak out to a party and have fun. Maya Rao ends the evening by incinerating the guy who attacks her.

Nik Lucas, sexy, new in town and totally forbidden, happens to walk in on her. Normal guys would run for the hills. Nik knows a whole lot more than he’s telling.

Maya doesn’t believe the gods are real, doesn’t waste her time with mere mythology. But when gods, demons and hellhound’s become the new normal and wielding fire becomes her new skill, she must decide what it is she really believes.

Can Maya accept that normal is something she will never be because it isn’t normal to be
…the Hand of Kali.

My Journey in Publishing- 16 months on

I was just wrapping a bunch of SKIN DEEP orders, getting ready to send out some signed book orders and I got into a contemplative mood. It’s been 16 months since I waded into publishing, since Dead Radiance was published, and I was griping (silently) that I hadn’t done well enough. Three books out in 16 months is a pretty good release rate but what bugs me is that Dead Chaos should have released in Feb but will likely only make it to my readers in Aug 2013. Plus Skin Deep was meant to release in Nov 2012 but only made it there 5 months later in late April 2013.

I know, I can hear a few of you going ‘But you’ve been through so much, stop being hard on yourself’, but you see I am always the taskmaster of myself.  I told readers who were clamouring for DEAD CHAOS that it would release Feb 2013 and it didn’t. To me that’s just not acceptable.

Still I’m trying to be positive, looking forward to Fire reaching readers mid to late July. I’m deep in edits right now, the heaters warming my feet and its storming outside. Love rainy days –the only thing missing is a roaring fire.

I’ve been treated by Miss 17. Just love TYPO!

2013-06-04 14.44.18

The cover for FIRE is well on its way to completion- I’m hoping to show it off in the next two weeks.

I’m still putting the finishing touches on Dead Chaos, keeping my fingers crossed that Valkyrie fans will like where the story is going. Fingers crossed, with editing going well and cover done on time, DEAD CHAOS should release mid August.

Plus there is Seals of Hades (UF/Paranormal) that needs one round of revisions before it’s off to my editor. As yet I can’t stick a date onto this novel (yeah I’m not making any promises lol)

And just as an aside- some work is being done on the second book in the DarkWorld series. I just couldn’t help myself, I’ve fallen back in love with Kailin’s worlds and all the interesting characters in SKIN DEEP.

And just so I can remind myself that my books are actually REAL

Description:

Panther Shape-shifter Kailin Odel just wants to be normal. Leaving her clan, and her Alpha responsibilities, to live with her grandmother in Chicago had been the best thing for her. Only then did she discover her ability to track and kill the soul sucking undead creatures called Wraiths. Now she protected the humans, and had something to be proud of.
But, when she discovers the body of a murdered shape shifter, Kailin has to come to terms with the reality that her own kind are just as vulnerable as the humans.
The closer Kailin gets to the killer the more she has to face the intricacies of her people. When the time comes can she accept who and what her real purpose is?

Skin Deep & Fire edits & annoying new ideas & a Valkyrie blog Tour

68519_455123287899677_848648790_n

I made this banner for my FB page and I couldn’t believe it when people began sharing it. Seems there are a few readers out there who are waiting on tenterhooks for this book. I’ve also had a bunch of emails from eager readers about Skin Deep, Fire and my schedule.

When is the actual release date for Skin Deep?

The way things stand I’m hoping to give you Skin Deep on the 30th April 2013 as the banner says. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping I don’t fall ill in the next few weeks. I have my ups and downs but when I’m down I’m down and out for at least 2 days and usually need a day to recover. That’s three days I cannot afford to lose. So keep your fingers crossed for me and for Skin Deep.

You’re totally going to love Kailin. She’s a demon hunter and she turns into a Black Panther. She’s got a killer to catch and people to save and someones trying to make her dead! And then there’s Logan…

Are you enjoying your edits for Skin Deep or is it really, really hard work?

Yes! Love it! So far it’s pretty much on track. Edits are coming along nicely, and this being a story I wrote in 2010 it’s interesting to read my work from the old days..lol. I’m halfway through the first round with my editor and am so eager to get into the nitty gritty of things. I love reading my editors comments. She’s very astute, picks up on stuff I’d be totally blind to. Love it when she asks a question and my answer is “Er… I dunno… I wrote it ages ago and rewrote it so many times, how the heck should I know what I meant to say?” Lol.

This makes me scared knowing I’m planning on releasing another novel written a while ago (The Seals of Hades, written from Nov 2010 to Feb 2011) At least this novel I remember in big bright details. I loved writing it. Angels and Hades, smart ass demons and a kick butt main character. What’s not to love?

What’s the latest on Fire and its release date?

Fire is next on the list with my editor waiting to have it back in her hot little hands. I haven’t set a firm date for Fire yet. Just waiting on the cover and a good feel for when the editing process will be complete. I’m trying not to put too much pressure on my poor little head lest it explodes. I’m tentatively thinking end of May to middle of June. *crosses fingers behind back

Please please tell us when Dead Chaos is going to be released?

I’m hoping to have Dead Chaos released by the end of July, latest mid-August but I will update as I go. We will start on the DC cover as soon as the Fire cover is ready. I love covers and I’m so excited to do the Fire cover reveal, I just can’t wait.

And to make matters worse I’ve have Vampires and Dystopians on the brain. Some new ideas percolating, who knows where they will go though. I’m pretty sure my plate’s full enough at the moment!

Better get back to editing, writing and trying to stay sane all at the same time….

Oh and before I forget! A Blog Tour for the Valkyrie series
