The Burnt Orange Season

Pumpkinscape: Pumpkins on a picnic table covered with a Halloween-ish tablecloth.

There's a card I send out to my close women friends every autumn and in it, the sentiment talks about "This burnt orange season." That phrase captured me, because it encapsulates the nature of autumn for me. The pumpkins and leaves turning color, and the shifting light in the late afternoon--it truly is a 'burnt orange' season. It speaks of all things ghostly and mystical to me. And so, in this burnt orange season, I send to you my best fall wishes, for a lovely harvest, for a wonderfully spooky autumn that both chills and thrills in the best possible way.

I've got a lot to tell you in this newsletter: lots of preorders, Whisper Hollow news, news about a new Maddy book in the works, books on sale, and all sorts of lovely wonderful things! So sit back, grab a cup of tea or coffee or whatever your pleasure, and let's get right to it!

Witching Bones Cover

WITCHING BONES RELEASE

KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO | PRINT

First, WITCHING BONES came out on the 2nd! I forgot to send out a newsletter about it because things were crazy here, but Raven's second adventure is out and available now, and I'm getting all sorts of wonderful letters about it from my readers. So grab your copy now, if you haven't, and dive into the WILD HUNT WORLD from Raven's side of the fence!

When you dance with Death, you have to be willing to roll the bones...

Raven Bonetalker, the Daughter of Bones, has her plate full. Not only is her neighbor still driving her nuts, but she’s in a new relationship with Kipa, the Lord of the Wolves, and neither one is ready for everything that entails. But life takes a sinister turn when a spirit begins siphoning off the life force of one of Kipa’s wolf shifters.

Gunnar, a member of the SuVahta—the pack of divine werewolves bound to the Lord of Wolves—is dying, and nobody can figure out why. Gunnar blames himself for the death of his beloved wife, and he believes she is haunting him.

When Kipa asks Raven to examine the shifter, she finds a far deadlier spirit latched onto the werewolf. And the only way Raven can help is to first agree to a deadly alliance with one of the ancient Ante-Fae—Arachna, the Web Weaver. But Arachna’s price is far steeper than Raven can afford to pay, and the fallout threatens to shake the very core of Raven’s life.

Preorders Galore--Wild Hunt & Whisper Hollow

A SACRED MAGIC

RELEASE DAY: OCTOBER 14, 2019

KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO  (Print to come on release date)

Ember’s about to face the showdown of her life…

Things are coming to a head with the Tuathan Brotherhood, and Ember finds herself right on the front lines. The goddess Brighid calls in her favor, sending Ember on a journey through the world of Annwn. Her quest? To find an ancient weapon that can turn the tide in the war against Nuanda and the Tuathan Brotherhood.

But as Ember journeys to the Well of Tears, she must face not only the demons that inhabit the mystical forest, but her demons that haunt her blood heritage. Can she recover Brighid’s Flame and put an end to the Tuathan Brotherhood? If she succeeds, Ember must face an enemy unlike any other she’s ever battled. But, if she fails, the Brotherhood will permanently destroy the delicate balance of power between the Fae Courts and the rest of the world.

The Eternal Return Cover

THE ETERNAL RETURN

RELEASE DATE: DECEMBER 16, 2019

KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO (Print to come on release date)

With the Tuathan Brotherhood taken care of, Ember and the Wild Hunt gear up for the coming darkness that threatens to plunge their lives into chaos. But first, they take on the ancient liche who stole Talia's powers. Lazarus is living near Winter Hall Magical Academy, located near Mt. Rainier. Over the centuries, he's grown so strong that it seems futile to take him on. But with Lazarus stalking the students, stealing not only their magical powers but their lives, the Wild Hunt can't allow him to roam free. Before they can confront him, Talia takes it on herself to reconnoiter the situation and ends up trapped in a maniacal web that could easily spell her death. Now, Ember and Herne must race against time before Lazarus finds her first.

THE WHISPER HOLLOW SERIES

Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living, and the lake never gives up her dead...

For those who don't know--because the series died pretty quickly with Berkley--I wrote two books in a dark contemporary fantasy series called "The Whisper Hollow Series." And then they decided to axe it. 

I finally got the rights back and so Whisper Hollow will be returning in January! I will be doing a strong tightening on the first two books. The plots will remain mostly the same, but the books need more editing to match my writing style now, so I will be tightening them up. All print copies will be with the new covers, as well.

AND...I will be putting out more books in the series!

If you haven't read the series, I encourage you to give it a try. This is a darker series--full of ghosts and spirits. It's not quite Urban Fantasy, definitely has romance in it, but it's what I call "Dark contemporary fantasy." It's not as dark as the Indigo Court Series, but darker than Otherworld and a little darker than the Wild Hunt.

Autumn Thorns Cover

AUTUMN THORNS

RELEASE DATE: JANUARY 13, 2020

KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO (Print to come on release date)

Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living, and the lake never gives up her dead...

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I'm Kerris Fellwater and when I returned, I not only inherited my grandmother's house, but her gift. Like her, I must take on the job of spirit shaman. It's my gift-and my curse-to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people-and secrets-don't always stay buried.

A trunk hidden in the attic throws my life into chaos. My mother vanished when I was little and I was told she ran away. But now it looks like she was murdered. With the help of Bryan-my mysterious and brooding neighbor-we begin to unravel the mystery of her disappearance, and in doing so, we unearth a dark force seeking to bury Whisper Hollow. Now, I must work with the dead, rather than against them, because our enemy will do whatever she can to destroy the town, and she means to start with me.

Veronica, Queen of the UnLiving, is causing trouble. When I request an audience with her, she tells me something big is coming, something that even the Hounds of Cú Chulainn fear. Now, Bryan and I must enlist the help of the dead in order to keep the spirit world from unwinding and to keep the Hounds from using the approaching disaster for their own ends.

BEWITCHING BEDLAM NEWS! A NEW MADDY BOOK ON THE WAY!

So, as you know, I was including a short Maddy story in the newsletter. Well, Maddy decided she wanted her wedding to be a full novel instead of a short! So, I'm writing that book right now (it's flowing like crazy--Maddy wanted to have her say again, apparently!).

I will release DEMON'S DELIGHT in November 2019 (no preorder up yet).

Also, I'm putting new covers on all the Bewitching Bedlam books--I was getting a lot of people thinking they were cozies and that's NOT the case and I believe the covers weren't branded right for my work. So I'm switching them all up. The books will be the same, no changes, so if you see Maddy's books with new covers, and you have the all up until now, you don't have to buy them again! 

I am also gathering all four of the Bewitching Bedlam shorts into an anthology that I'll be releasing next month, called BEDLAM CALLING, and it will also be available in e-format, and ALSO in print for those who haven't bought the shorts yet because they were only in E-format. When it's released, I'll send out a newsletter about it.

When I release the anthology, I will be taking the individual shorts down from sale. If you've bought them already, they'll remain yours, of course, but the individual shorts will no longer be available separately.
