Hey all! After enjoying two successful nonfiction titles, and trying (unsuccessfully) to make the leap into YA fiction, I have finally sold my series to a small press in a 4-book deal. The first book, a novella called DIES IRAE comes out next week, and the novel (LACRIMOSA) is out in March. WOOT!

I haven't been here in a very long time, but with the release coming up, I just wanted to come by and announce it. Hopefully this won't get deleted. I haven't been about of late, but I used to be a big haunter of these boards. :)

My debut, Blood Rage, comes out on Wednesday from Evernight Publishing.

I owe a lot of people here a great deal of thanks (Pilot first and foremost, though it looks like he hasn't been around for a few months). Got great help with my original query, the opening (heck, the whole danged thing). It was called Choices, then Love & Lies, and then finally, Blood Rage.

After a long trip down the road to publication...here it is!



BLEEDING HEARTS: Book One of the Demimonde
(March 15, 2012 Pink Narcissus Press)
 

Saving the world one damned person at a time—shy advice columnist-turned-oracle must find a way to save her dangerous demivampire lover from the fate that threatens each of his race: evolution and the destruction of his soul.

When advice columnist Sophie meets dark and alluring Marek, she learns life-changing secrets about them both—he’s a demivampire struggling to avoid evolution and she’s an empathic oracle destined to save him. Sophie possesses the rare ability to reduce the spiritual damage that causes a demivamp to Fall, making her the only thing that stands between a DV and evolution. However, as Marek's dangerous past propels him toward his desperate fate, his enemies make darker plans for him: once vampire, powerful Marek would be second only to the Master himself. The vamps want to cause Marek's Fall and they intend to use Sophie to do it....
