Book Excerpt: Body Armor

I’ve done a few character interviews and excerpts leading into the upcoming release of Medici Protectorate Book 3, Body Armor. To this point, pretty much every promotional piece I’ve shared has been about Nico or Donni. That’s about to change. Today, I’ve decided to share an excerpt with you that’s from a different perspective—from that ofContinue reading “Book Excerpt: Body Armor”

Book Review: Hacked by Sue Coletta

Shawnee Daniels wrongly assumes she’s being punished for innocently hacking the Police Chief’s photos. Okay, maybe not-so-innocently, but someone had to expose him for the dog that he is.

Do You Believe in Curses by Mae Clair

I’m thrilled to welcome friend and fellow writer Mae Clair back to my little slice of the blogosphere today. She just released book three of her Point Pleasant series, A Desolate Hour, which I reviewed not long ago. Today she wants to discuss curses, and I can’t think of a better person to dive intoContinue reading “Do You Believe in Curses by Mae Clair”

Her Punctured Lung Punctured His Heart

Type and Cross is a suspense-filled family drama. Here is an excerpt: “She didn’t have protective gear, either.” His voice broke. “Her clothes, what little there were, were ripped to rags. Her rib punctured her lung, and the whole side of her body was cinder-scraped.” “It sounds awful.” “You still haven’t figured out the worstContinue reading “Her Punctured Lung Punctured His Heart”

Reviewing A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair

Writers are an interesting bunch. If we consider ourselves as individual companies, then technically other writers would be our competition. But we don’t think that way. We think of ourselves as a community, and as such, we share tips and tricks, and we support each other. One of the ways we do that is byContinue reading “Reviewing A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair”

Waiting in Whitechapel

Maniacal desire surged through his heart—pulse racing, fingers trembling, palms sweating. The taste of impending satiety metallic on his tongue, making him salivate. He swallowed and licked chapped lips, then wiped his hands on his trousers before tugging on his gloves. Panic licked the fringes of his thoughts when his damp digits wouldn’t slide into theContinue reading “Waiting in Whitechapel”

Open Your Eyes

“Open your eyes, John.” The demonic voice echoed through the cave, reverberated off the walls until it rocked his very soul. He shook his head, whimpering and quivering in a crumpled mass on the floor. “Open your eyes. See your future.” “N-no.” John barely heard his own voice. He doubted the sound carried any furtherContinue reading “Open Your Eyes”

Oktoberfic

I’m part German. I know that probably surprises you, given I constantly blather on and on about my Italian roots. (As an aside, I did write a novella about Irish-Americans, given I’m part Irish, too—on my dad’s side. I’m a veritable melting pot because of him.) So, other than October 12 when we go hardcoreContinue reading “Oktoberfic”
