After a month of NEVER-ENDING EDITS on three separate books, I have a lot to catch everyone up on.  Ready?  Here we go...

Last year's steampunk Christmas novella CRIME WAVE IN A CORSET, published by Carina Press, is now an EPIC Award finalist!!!

Yeah. I'm framing this baby. I'm such a dork. *blushes*

Winners will be announced in March of 2013 at EPIC-Con, located this year in Vancouver, Washington.  I'm so excited!

Also, I have new covers to show off!  The first one actually comes with a specific release date of January 21st, 2013, and between you and me, I cannot WAIT to launch this series.  I'm working on finishing up the fourth and final book now (thank you NaNoWriMo), so hopefully I'll be able to get the manuscript on my editor's desk before Christmas. *crosses fingers*

But enough of my blathering--it's time for a cover reveal!  Ladies and gents, allow me to present the cover and blurb of the 1st book in The Earth Angels series, NOBODY'S ANGEL!

Cover art by the goddess known as Angela Waters


Book one in The Earth Angels


Investigative journalist Kendall Glynn is horrified when a friend and colleague signs off permanently during a live newscast, jabbing a pen into his jugular. Kendall's no expert, but judging by the strange white veil in the anchorman's eyes, she would swear he was a man possessed.


A descendant of the accursed Nephilim, Zeke Reece prowls San Francisco by night, keeping the city free from paranormal phenomena. But even he is no match for whatever malevolent force is behind a recent rash of murder-suicides. And when a beautiful tenacious reporter becomes the next target, Zeke has no choice but to stay close to her, until he can find the evil spirit and cross it over.


The closer Kendall gets to the truth, the more danger she's in. Fortunately, a sexy and mysterious masked stranger keeps swooping in to the rescue. Kendall's life depends on finding who or what is responsible for the killings, before it finds her.

Is this not the most lickolicious cover in the history of everything???  Well, okay, maybe not EVERYTHING.  But close. Hmph.

The 2nd cover Angela Waters put together for The Earth Angels is quite possibly the most accurate cover I've ever had (and I've adored every single one of the covers I've been lucky enough to receive, believe me).  With a tentative release date in February, here's the cover for SAVAGE ANGEL!

More of Angela Waters' magnificent work


Book two in The Earth Angels

Feel nothing. Sara Savitch’s personal mantra has been hard to live by ever since her torrid one-night stand with Army doctor Gideon Mandeville. Descended from the Seraphim, angels known as heaven’s soldiers, Sara may be an expert fighter, but she’s an amateur when it comes to relationships.

Physically unharmed, but still battle-scarred, Gideon has returned to Dallas in the hopes of regaining his faith in humanity—and in himself. Instead he’s walked into a nightmare. His father is on a serial killer’s hit list and has hired a personal bodyguard—the very woman who has haunted Gideon’s dreams for a year.

As Sara works to build an impenetrable fortress around her client, she yearns to tear down the one around Gideon's heart. With his bitter rejection of warriors, will he ever be able to accept her true nature? Sara must find a way to trust Gideon with her secret as the killer closes in…

Ta-da!  and last thing on the agenda...the contract for WOUNDED ANGEL is a done deal, folks!

Because I'm a paranoid freak, I removed some of the Agreement # and addresses. Heh.

WOUNDED ANGEL is the 3rd book in The Earth Angels series and tentatively scheduled to be released in May, 2013.  I also have a contemporary romance coming out in July that got a rename, but I'm saving that for another post.  There's enough in this one to be getting on with, me thinks. :D

So, what does that mean?  I now need to post a PUBLISHING SCHEDULE!

December 3, 2012 -- HOW THE GLITCH SAVED CHRISTMAS, A Galactic Holiday Anthology
January 21, 2013 -- NOBODY'S ANGEL, 1st book in The Earth Angels
February, 2013 -- SAVAGE ANGEL, 2nd book in The Earth Angels
May, 2013 -- WOUNDED ANGEL, 3rd book in The Earth Angels
July, 2013 -- Contemporary Romance novel published by Carina Press.

Yup.  That'll keep me busy. :)


  1. I love the sound of this series--I really do. And your covers are fabulous! And w00t w00t for making that finalist list! I'm so proud of you!

    1. Hey, Your Tartness! Do you realize that this is one of the books you beta-read for me? I dedicated it to you and to Lance, so it definitely has an extra special meaning to me. :)
