One good demon deserves another.





 One good demon deserves another.


Alexis Hawthorne would give anything to have her old life back. Even her role as a demon soldier in Rhiannon's legion of warriors was an improvement over where she is now. Chained up in the Mage Circle's dungeons.

Cole West came to New York with the clothes on his back and a boatload of secrets. Too bad he can’t tell anyone who—and what—he really is. But being sworn to secrecy by the Queen of the Fae means he has to keep his word. Or die.

As Alexis fights to survive, Cole West hasn't given up searching. When he finds the Mage who took her away from him, he’ll burn the Circle to the ground.

Even if it is made out of marble.

Being dead doesn’t mean you can’t recognize a hot shifter when he shows up glowering on your doorstep.

Being dead doesn’t mean you can’t recognize a hot shifter when he shows up glowering on your doorstep.


The Forbidden Fangs tattoo parlor is Marla’s business, her calling, and her hideout as she tries to escape her sire, “The Collector”—a creepy old man who “collects” vampires with special talents. 

As a vampire, she always feels cold, but she’s thinking the best way to warm up would be to snuggle in close to the shifter who just arrived spouting nonsense about her thieving cat, His Lordship King Snugglebumpkins.

Wolf shifter Grayson has two missions in Forbidden: 1) decide whether or not to invest in the bed and breakfast, and 2) find the perfect plush animal for his nephew. But when he meets Marla, his two missions transform to 1) evading her evil cat, and 2) making Marla fall in love with him. 

He seems well on his way to succeeding in his new missions, until an ominous vampire from Marla’s past shows up, and his mission changes once again: protect Marla. She might be undead, but she’s also his mate.

The Reluctant Wolf and his Fated Mate by Lisa Carlisle

 Amazon US



Mates were trouble. That's why Damon would never commit to one.
Even if the temptation is strong...


Sophie escapes to the White Mountains with her friend for a ski weekend. When she skis off trail and gets lost in the mountains, she stumbles into the path of a wolf. Only it's bigger than any she ever thought existed, and it's baring its fangs at her...

Damon has refused to ever find a mate after his father went mad. When Damon meets a woman his wolf recognizes as the one, the call is more difficult to ignore. And when he catches her scent on the mountain, he can't fight it any longer. He tracks her through the forest to ensure she's safe.

Only Sophie has stepped into another pack's territory.

If Damon crosses the boundary, he'll break the treaty between their packs.

Pumpkins, psychic poetry and other author rabblerousing...

 Hello foxy readers. Hope you're reading your butt off (because that'd be a cool way to get fit, right?).


The big news, the biggest news, beyond any book is... 

We found canned pumpkin! So apparently the secret is to complain in my newsletter. So let's try something and see if the universe provides. If it works, I'll share...

Remember when you could buy a billion dollars at the grocery store and not even think about it? Well, it's been out of stock for months now. Ugh. How am I going to be rich without it? 

Give that a little bit of energy and let's see if anything happens. LOL.

Aside from pumpkin hunting, I've been doing a lot of research for Mel's book and teasing out what is going to be an intricate plot. So last week was crime. This week was magic and poetry psychics.

Wait, I already know what you're going to ask...

What is a poetry psychic?   

See how amazing my powers of perception are?

A poetry psychic is unique interactive performance that uses poetry for psychic readings. It's very interesting. I joined a session on Zoom where you pick a number and the 'psychic' (aka the performer because this is a performance not really a psychic reading) reads you the poem and you analyze it's 'message' from there. 

My poem was The Man Who Gave Birth to a Panda by Idra Novey. It's about the push-pull between what you want, what you should do and what is and what's done and rare things worth saving. It gave me A LOT to think about.  

Poetry readings are an interesting prism through which to think about your life. If you'd like the artist's contact information, let me know and I'll forward it to you. 

I've also been reading about magic looking for plot nuggets. Which, apparently magic is real, but also incredibly boring. Wowza. I got buried in a book that looked at the science and managed to make it all very dull with graphs and numbers that were probably satanic calculus.

But yes, magic appears to be able to generate statistically relevant results. However, it's incremental at best (or the real masters aren't working with the scientists, which given how horridly boring they are, I can that see being a thing).

So I guess think harder on that billion dollar idea above because it could work??? And keep reading! 
  

Xoxoxo

If books were pumpkins, I'd pick these...
One girl, five monsters, one hell of a ride. 

Taken from the Pit where she was raised, Aisha believes all vampires are horrifying…  Then she finds herself in Dashiell’s possession.  

Powerful, handsome, and charismatic, Dashiell is not what she thought her master would be. 

His dark desires draw her into his world, and things heat up between them. 

But with a demon gargoyle scratching at her window, and wolves sniffing at the door, Aisha might not stay in the vampire’s grasp for long. 

Danger and temptation surround her on all sides, but Aisha is determined to fight them all.

October is for writing, reading, and decapitating pumpkins...


What I'm Reading....

Local news celebrity Sasha Dane and her mother are fixated on one goal—leverage their media presence to make life supremely difficult for the invading Preor. They want the aliens gone from Earth and for their unnatural hold on human females to end. Permanently. That’s how Sasha found herself at Preor Choosing Station Tau attending a Preor Choosing. Her job? Gather as much dirt as possible. If only that had gone according to plan…

About the writing and decapitating...

Happy October! Despite the neverending pandemic, we are looking forward to fall over here. When I'm not working, I'm preparing for my tween's birthday and we're watching Dancing with the Stars and the Great British Bake Off.  I hope you are well and that there's lots of cider and cozy reads in your fall.


I've been in full baking and cooking mode over here, however, grocery stores are not fully stocked. I don't know about where you live, but where I am, canned pumpkin has been MIA since the start of the year. They never restocked after the last holiday and the prices for what's left online are crazy high. So we're going to be decapitating pumpkins this weekend and making our own pumpkin puree for holiday pies and muffins/cakes. 

I make a mean pumpkin pie and an amazing pumpkin cake. No way will my family feel the holiday spirit without these. So the hubby is breaking out the machete and we're going to find out if we can split a pumpkin without severing an artery. 

Meanwhile, we keep working on the house. My mom is just about to move into her in-law suite. Now we just have the rest of the house to finish. Yowza. It's a big project, you guys. I think we overestimated our DIY efficiency, but hopefully this next phase goes fast.

I'm writing, writing, writing. It's slow going, but I have such a great mystery for Mel. You're going to love it. The research rabbit hole was awesome. I learned so many interesting things about crime...that I don't want to mention or else I'll spoil it. But super cool stuff coming your way.

My black lab, Comet, keeps plotting to run away, but is foiled by our constant vigilance. I've never had a dog who could set an agenda and stay focused on a goal. It seems to me, if she's that capable, she should be doing more than stealing food from the kitchen counter and stalking the side door for just the right moment to slip out, but that's her main thing. I guess it's good to have goals?

More importantly and the reason why we're all here, I have new books coming. Two box sets. First up is a 
Dragon Box Set, Kissed by Fire (major points to anyone who recognizes that as also being a title of one of my books). We decided there weren't enough box set for dragons, so we put this together for those of you who have big, bright flames in your hearts. I contributed Dragon Burning Bright to this one. 

And there's a juicy fated mates box set also coming. I don't yet have links for that, but I'll get them to you as soon as I can. That one will have First Moon.

A note about Facebook's Systemic Racism and Misogyny...

Perhaps you have heard that many companies will be boycotting Facebook this month in an effort to push the company to better manage its platform.

The latest revelation is that ads with white supremacist language and hashtags were allowed on the platform in droves.

In *droves*.

Not an accident. 

Approval. 

At scale.

Meanwhile, did you know that romance authors (mostly women) can lose their ad accounts if they use the word kiss or romance in an ad? Bare shoulders, a light embrace...all denied and flagged and occasionally used to justify shutting down author ad accounts. Sometimes Facebook flags our links to book retailers and shuts us down for that.

I and other authors have had ridiculous amounts of harassment from Facebook over ads for romance and fantasy books.

The harassment is constant.

(Clearly authors should've been creating products for white supremacists, that's the green light apparently.)

I've learned to work around it, (and I even teach authors how to do that too), but it's weird since Zuckerberg is a self identified free speech absolutist.

On Facebook, women can't write about love, but men can pimp white supremacy.

Let me say that again, but louder...

ON FACEBOOK, WOMEN CAN'T WRITE ABOUT LOVE, BUT MEN CAN PIMP WHITE SUPREMACY.

I actually didn't ever think all the ad harassment was sexist until I realized that white supremacists (largely men) were allowed to trade on hate undeterred. I can't unsee it now.

So I absolutely support the boycott, but as a small business I can't afford to join it. Not yet. (Okay, and no, Facebook would not even notice if I stopped giving them money. I'm so tiny compared to the big brands pushing the boycott.)

But I did want to say, Black Lives Matter and NAACP receive monthly donations from me and those are directly funded by the work I do on Facebook. Weaponize their mistakes, right?

However, I will be working to grow other marketing outlets so that I can participate in a boycott like this in the future. It'll take some time, but this is a major priority now. I can't be subject to another company's crappy problems without recourse. I need to build my own lifeboat.

It's really frustrating though to see this happening. Facebook built an amazing platform that has been a boon to small business unlike any other in the modern era, but then they filled their operating system with systemic racism and misogyny. 

If they don't change, I won't be there.

COMMENT POLICY: Keep it civil. This is my house. I don't come spew things on your feed, right? No memes. Comments will be moderated because there's always someone who doesn't get it and doesn't want to get it and wants to be sure we all know it, but I'm not hosting that.
