Returning Friends

You guys are still here? Follow the party!

Lots of exciting things are happening on the new Raven's Quill

This morning, Geisha the Assassin is back for her next installment in the Greylands project. After a close brush with death, she's been given a new hit...and she's not happy.

I also had a Q&A with author C.J. Duarte, a follow up of the interview he had here some 10 months ago. He catches us up on life after the Dash Volume 1 and an update on how Volume 2 is progressing. Read it here.

Otherwise, even more fun stuff going on, and I'd love to have you join us!

INHALE - Kendall Grey's Book Launch

Strangers in reality, inseparable in dreams…

 After years of suffocating under her boss’s scrutiny, whale biologist Zoe Morgan finally lands a job as director of a tagging project in Hervey Bay, Australia. Success Down Under all but guarantees her the promotion of a lifetime, and Zoe won’t let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. Not the whale voices she suddenly hears in her head, not the ex who won’t take no for an answer, and especially not the gorgeous figment of her imagination who keeps saving her from the fiery hell of her dreams.

 Gavin Cassidy hasn’t been called to help a human Wyldling in over a year, which is fine by him. Still blaming himself for the death of his partner, he keeps the guilt at bay by indulging in every excess his rock star persona affords. That is, until he’s summoned to protect Zoe from hungry Fyre Elementals and learns his new charge is the key to restoring order in the dying Dreaming. He never expects to fall for the feisty Dr. Morgan…nor does he realize he may have to sacrifice the woman he loves to save an entire country.

I love promoting new authors and new books, and this one is even more incredible because of what it stands for.

INHALE, an urban fantasy romance by Kendall Grey, is now available in paperback and e-book for Kindle (MOBI) and Nook (EPUB). INHALE is the first book in the JUST BREATHE trilogy. Kendall is donating all profits from the sale of the trilogy to programs that educate people about whales and the challenges they face. Watch the video to find out why.

In line with her cause, Kendall is encouraging interested readers to purchase an e-book instead of a paperback. E-books save trees, cost considerably less, and bring in much more money for the whales.
Thank you for supporting INHALE, and most importantly, the whales that need our help.

I'm proud to be a part of this book release and I wish Kendall the very best of luck in her mission! To learn more about the author (and you should, because she's fantastic), check out these sites:

*This book contains graphic language, sex, and some violence. Not suitable for readers under the age of 18.
**The author will donate all profits from the sale of the JUST BREATHE trilogy to programs that educate people about whales and the challenges they face.

Greylands, Part 3: The Ripples

Maverick shut the door to the shop and leaned back with a grin. That poor girl had no idea what she’d just agreed to. Pops was a kind soul – somewhere under all his gruffness – and hopefully Damsel would get a chance to see it before she stabbed him with a lockpick. Which he wouldn’t put it past her to do.

He laughed and pushed away from the door, heading away from Pop’s shop.

By the grim expression on Firefly’s face earlier he thought it best to avoid her, so he turned away from the tent city and back towards the library. Jack was in no mood to be played with, either – Fletch had seen to that, the bastard. The smirk disappeared from Maverick’s face, replaced by a scowl. Jack had warned him to watch out for the worm, but had given no reason. Not that he really needed an excuse to stay away from Fletch, but he was curious. What was he planning? Maverick had seen his interest in Damsel – like a cat with its sights set on a mouse. Maybe he’d ask Mosh to keep an eye on the girl. Couldn’t hurt.

Greylands: Firefly

by Chelsea Miller

The ever constant rain helped Firefly wash the seed from her dirty blonde hair. She shuddered as she passed through the silver gates of one of the mansions in the Golden Tracks. Not from the cold rain, but shuddering from her latest client. She closed her eyes and tried to forget his sagging skin and horrible breath.
