Today we’re having a yard sale, and I’m wondering…should I put my business cards out too? Tell people I’m also a Tarot card reader? Thing 3 thought no…”It’s a yard sale, mom. No. Just…no.”

-le sigh-

Blood Promise Now On Kindle Unlimited!

Blood Promise is now on Kindle Unlimited! Since most of my sales are from Amazon, I’m going to try going strictly with Amazon for a few months to see how things work. If you currently have a subscription for KU, awesome! Read my book and leave a review! If you’re not on KU, you can still get the book at Amazon.


With a murderous beast on her heels and a conniving daemon who wants to use her for his own means, Tora Hayden’s main objective is to keep herself and those she cares about alive.

After meeting an enigmatic businessman who possibly suffers from florid psychosis, Tora is propelled into the world of the supernatural. She’s forced to believe the mythical world exists when she’s brutally attacked by a savage fiend intent on annihilating her family line for reasons unbeknownst to her. With the assistance of the psychotic businessman, along with a gorgeous manwhore whom Tora swore to never date but ends up doing just that, she discovers her seventy-years-dead great-grandmother was actually an otherworldly warrioress.

In an effort to beat the murderous beast at its own game, Tora chooses to take on her deceased great-grandmother’s powers to gain immortality and supernatural strength.

During the transfer of powers, something goes wrong: she unwittingly releases a daemon who’s been cursed to his own realm for enslaving the fiend and working towards enslaving all factions. Now, she not only has a murderous beast on her heels but a conniving daemon who’s loose and wants to use her for his own means.

Tora Hayden: A Character Profile

Tora, Tora, Tora -shaking my head in exasperation.  Tora had a hard time as a young kid and had to fight to get to where she is now. She stands up for the little guy, has enough attitude to fill a football field, and can be one snarky little bitch. She’s also forgiving, empathatic, and compassionate–traits that are her Achille’s heel. I explain here how empathy and compassion can be her weaknesses. She can also be a little impulsive at times and, as a result, tends to get herself into sticky situations.

Her motto might be, “I’m small but mighty.” She has fighting skills along with a strong will to survive.

For the most part, she doesn’t have self-esteem issues, though events that deal with loss and pain tend to send her back to being an insecure, 10-year-old kid again. Sometimes she’ll lash out in anger when she’s feeling anxious or insecure rather than explore why she feels that way. It’s a coping mechanism and a hard habit to break, but she’d better get her act together by book 2!

Blood Promise is available in ebook at Amazon, Apple, B&N, Kobo, Scribd, 24 Symbols, Inkterra, and Thalia.  You can also get it in paperback here.


NaNoWriMo and a Paperback!


I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year. It’s been a few years since I’ve participated. I’m working on book 2 in the Blood Promise series, the working title being Blood Ties. I’m t_kerrigan if you want to friend me! I’m at 9505 words so far, so I’m making progress. I don’t know that I’ll get the first draft finished in a month, but at least I’ll get a big portion of it done. Since I don’t have any plans this weekend, that gives me time to write…and write…and write…

Also, Blood Promise is now available in paperback! Finally. Whew. Right now, it’s available at Amazon. You can also get the ebook at Amazon, B&N, iTunes, Kobo, Scribd, 24 Symbols, and Inkterra and Thalia.

Happy reading…and writing!


How Did That Get In There?

I ordered a second proof copy of Blood Promise, and I’m noticing extra words here and there that mysteriously got inserted into the book that weren’t there before, words that mess up the sentence. I hate it when I’m reading a book and suddenly there’s a word either missing or a random word inserted that doesn’t make any sense, and now I’m finding it in my book! Grrr….

I have a feeling it’s my Word program. For some strange reason, sometimes the cursor jumps around the page, typing or deleting where I didn’t want it to, so I’m guessing that’s what happened here.

So now, I’m going through with a fine-tooth comb, making sure it’s perfect before I release the paperback and fix the corrections in the ebook.

What’s In Your Bookmark List?

One of the things in my list is from Thesaurus.com for “perturbed.” Seeing as how Tora is perturbed quite a bit, I guess I wanted different ways of expressing that.
