Blackbird Rising is now available!

Blackbird Rising–my modern-day fantasy take on the King Arthur legend–has been released!

WOOT!  

Here’s the blurb:

For hundreds of years, the Witch King’s sword has been buried in stone awaiting the next hand to draw it.

Many have tried. None have succeeded.

Gwen is the last in a long line of De Montfort witches whose duty it is to protect the sword of all power. But when she returns to King Island to perform the blessing, a mysterious pulse of blue light tells her that someone has attempted to draw the sword. Before she can investigate any further, demons attack. She only survives with the help of a mysterious stranger who disappears as quickly as he appears. 

Gwen and her grandmother, Moscelyne, soon discover that minor gateways into Darkside—the traditional home of both demons and dark elves—are being forced open by magic.  Even worse, someone is now sending demons after the Witch King’s heirs.

As vital artifacts are stolen by Darkside and the deaths draw altogether too close to home, Gwen and Mo—with the help of old gods and an ancient order of knights once thought dead—scramble to unravel the clues and stop the murderous would-be king from claiming the crown.

If they fail and the wrong hand draws the sword of power, he can unlock the main gateway into Darkside and unleash utter hell onto an unsuspecting and unprepared England….

Six Sentence Sunday time...

And it’s another Blackbird Rising teaser because the book is out TOMORROW!

In this teaser, we get our first glimpse of our hero…

He leaned against the bathroom doorframe, his arms crossed and his pose casual. The sword that had so swiftly dispatched the dark elf was nowhere to be seen, though the slightest shimmer near his left shoulder suggested it was now sheathed across his back—a position historians had spent centuries saying was illogical, as it was all but impossible to draw a long sword held in such a position. Unless, of course, you had gorilla arms, and the stranger certainly didn’t.

They were, however, very well muscled, a point emphasized by the somewhat bloody material of his shirt being stretched to breaking point around the bicep area.

The rest of him wasn’t exactly shabby, either.

Six Sentence Sunday Time!

Seeing it’s the first one for the new year, here’s a little teaser from the first book I finished this year–Deadly Vows (book 6, Lizzie Grace series–out June 2020)

It is, of course, totally unedited!

Aiden put me down gently then caught my chin in his fingertips and lifted my face. “It looks like you’ve burst a blood vessel in your eyes.”

“It was the stress of using wild magic to prop the wall. I’ll be fine.” The sudden sharpening of sirens had me glancing around; several ambulances and an SES truck were entering the parking area. “What’s happened to Belle?”

Six Sentence Sunday...

Yep, it’s that time of the week again!

This time, the teaser is from Blackbird Rising, which is now available for pre-order.

At the very last moment, the demon sensed my approach and swung around, but by that time I was already in the air, arrowing feetfirst towards him.

He screamed and raised his talons, but the blow missed and he got no further. I hit him hard and, with a squeal that was more surprise than pain, he was flung backward, out the window and down to the ground. There was a soft but sickening crack, followed by silence.

I hit the carpet, rolled to my feet, and ran to the window. The demon lay below me, dark liquid leaking across the concrete under his head. He’d hit hard enough to be killed, and I couldn’t be sad about that.
