Ghosts in the Graveyard

It's almost time for Halloween!

This is without a doubt my favorite time of year. So in addition to releasing two brand-spanking new Halloween short stories in two different anthologies (It's a Ghoul Thing has Maggie's story and Spell of the Ball has Femi's story) I am also releasing last year's Halloween story again.

So if you missed it last time, fall back into the Easy Bake Coven world and join the coven on their Halloween adventure in Ghosts in the Graveyard. (Timeline-wise, this falls between Tiddly Jinx and Ollie, Ollie Hex n' Free).

Badass and the Beast

My two favorite things are writing and animals, so when I was asked to be a part of this anthology, Badass and the Beast, which the proceeds would go to benefit Animal Welfare Institute, I was thrilled to be a part of it. 

Basically, this anthology is made up of some pretty kickass paranormal and fantasy authors to bring you a collection of stories with strong female characters and animal companions and everything we make will go to charity which is pretty awesome too. 

In this book my story is about twin girls who have car trouble and end up in a heap of trouble. This tale is a little paranormal romance, a little Twilight Zone, and hopefully a lot of fun.
So check it out (links below), and while you are reading you can feel good about how you gave back to reduce animal suffering. Also enter to win some awesome stuff.

What's to Come and Writing Plans

Hello all! I have been getting several comments over on Facebook asking about what is coming up next and if I am really leaving the Abyss world after Ollie, Ollie Hex n’ Free comes out (April 15th, preorder is available now!).
The short answer is I am absolutely not leaving the Abyss world. I love the Abyss so I’m definitely planning on continuing with that world. So, let me share with you guys my future plans for the Abyss and more.

The Abyss:

EASY BAKE COVEN: Katrina (and probably other coven members, but Kat for sure) will take over the Easy Bake Coven series as the primary narrators. So the series will continue, but Selene and Cheney will take more of a backseat to other story lines.

THE GUARDIAN/JINN TRILOGIES: While I don’t have plans to have another Olivia and Holden book, you will see them in other series. Most notably with be in Charlie’s NA/YA series. I hadn’t planned on writing this, but writing her short story Without a Map was so much fun, I can’t let it pass be by. So basically Charlie will be 18 and Baker will be 14 in this. So obviously O and H will be around, but probably in more of a frustrated parent capacity, which Holden in this role can be little other than hilarious.

THE SEKHMET SERIES: That’s right, Femi is getting her own series. Not only that, but I am not going to put a limit on how long it will run. Each book will stand alone on its own (about a different bounty hunting case), but there will be storylines that carry through. Think Dresden Files.

STANDALONE SINGLE BOOKS OR SHORT STORIES: I promise I will not neglect Quintus forever. I will give him something (I am just not sure what). Corbin will have his own novel and so will Frost. SY will probably have his own story at some point as well, but for now, I want to keep him a bit of a mystery.


THE ELLA REYNOLDS SERIES: I know it is long overdue, but I am writing the third Ella book. Its title is Dark Obsession. Ella will be investigating a creepy stalker case. Not only that, but I have at least 3 more books in her series planned.

STANDALONE: I have a serial killer book planned called Dead Inside. I am really excited to write this and already have the beginning written. All I am lacking now is time.
HOLTS HORRORS AND HOAXES: I am crazy excited about this project. It will be a novella series about a paranormal investigative television show (Holt’s Horrors and Hoaxes). Each story will be a different “episode” of the show. It will be a little darker and creepier (hopefully) than my other mysteries but it should still be a lot of fun. Think Alfred Hitchcock Presents meets Ghost Hunters. Also I plan to have the entire “season” written by the time I publish the first one because I want to release a story every Thursday until the first season is finished.


CHICK LIT/ROMANTIC COMEDY: I have been working on this project in my spare time (which there isn’t a lot of), and I love it. I will publish these books under the name Anne Moody (since they are a departure from what I normally write.) The first series is called Puppy Love. Each book will be about a different girl and each girl will be modeled after (personality wise) a different Jane Austen character. Think Clueless and the Jane Austen Book Club meets Must Love Dogs.

Anyway, these are the projects in the forefront. I have others ideas that for now will just have to wait.

Now it’s our turn to tell me what have I missed? What characters would you like me to give you more from?

#FlashFiction Friday #bravewriting

It's time once again for my weekly writing exercise. Here was today's challenge.

First line: He had enjoyed ten years of being totally irresponsible. (randomly generated line)
Last line: “Yes,” I said. “Isn’t it pretty to think so?” (~Ernest Hemingway)
Exercise: Construct a character who is not present.

He had enjoyed ten years of being totally irresponsible. His visits were scattered whirlwinds of excitement and promise that always fell just short of expectations. In the decade since my dad left, I changed, my mom changed, and the world changed, but he stayed the same. Always a boyish grin and quick joke to distract from any semblance of real conversation—Heaven forbid we get too deep.
At first I believed he would come back and stay. Why wouldn’t he? He was my dad. So his first visit was hardest. It had been over six months then without warning one day there he was outside of school leaning against an old rusted brown car with sunglasses and a smile I had begun to think I imagined.
“Hey, kiddo,” he said. “Did ya miss me?”
I dropped my backpack and flung myself into his waiting arms. He was home. I was right and everyone else had been wrong. He came back. The rest of the day was a blur of sugar, games, and brightly colored lights, which ended in a stomach ache and my mom furious. I fell asleep to the sound of their muffled argument, but still I smiled because my dad was home.  It was two years before I saw him again.
The next time I was a much wiser eight year old. When he breezed back into my life, I hesitated.
“Don’t you recognize your old dad?” he asked.
I stared at him. Nothing had changed except the car he drove, now it was a faded VW bug. But I was different. Hurt does that to a person, it changes them unpredictable ways, but it definitely robs them of their child eyes. I had a new dad now and was cured of my delusions about my real dad staying. But still the trickle of excitement seeped into me and I went with him once again for our day in Never-Never Land.
And so it went on as the years passed. He would always come without warning and be gone hours later. I don’t know what he did or how he survived when he wasn’t here. I didn’t even know where he lived. It could have been a mile or a thousand miles away. Every time he drove a different old car, but he was always happy and made me feel like the center of the universe even if it was just for a few hours.
Mom never said anything after the first time about his visits. She would just accept me home late with a relieved sigh and dry the inevitable teas that came later when he left again. But now she was gone and so was my stepfather. One terrible accident and now the stranger I had worshipped as a kid and tolerated as a teenager was my legal guardian.
“It will be different now,” my friend Emily said.
I gave her a weak smile. “Yes,” I said. “Isn’t it pretty to think so?”
