Fiction Friday: Sharing a NEW snippet of Dominus

Happy Friday! I am especially excited today. Not only is it Friday, but I am down to just over a month before summer vacation and a little change to my day job that will give me significantly more time for my writing and such. I am so dang excited about that...


Today, I thought I'd share a little bit more of Dominus, the final book in the Requiem Series. This book is told from both Nesy's and Lilith's POV, and this excerpt features Lilith:

~~



            Smokey black tendrils snake away from Lilith and encircle Aydan, weaving through the chains that bind him in place. His eyes, black and lifeless, no longer reflect any hint of his past. No amber color streaking through the dark orbs, no sublet glint that speaks of his angelic origins. He growls, snapping his fang-like teeth and clawing at the smoke.
            “Now, now, Aydan, my pet. Is that any way to greet your Master?” The smoke coils back into Lilith as she assumes her familiar shape. Long dark hair, cut in angular strands around her face. Dark eyes, still flecked with navy, that stand out against pale skin. She takes a sharp breath, filling her senses with the familiar scent of vanilla and smoke.
            Nessa.
            She takes a step toward Aydan and smiles. “Why resist, my pet? I know how much you like this form.”
            Lilith reaches out and caresses his check, feeling his skeletal frame beneath his bat-like skin. “Or maybe this would be better.” She closes her eyes and inhales a deep breath. A new image forms in her thoughts, a body so different from her own. Her pale skin deepens and takes on a golden hue. Her hair lengthens and fades, reflecting the sun that refuses to come into this domain. Her eyes brighten, taking the form of endless blue oceans. “Is this what you need, my pet? Who you need?”
            Aydan clenches his jaw and turns away. She grabs his chin and forces him to face her. An image of Nesayiel reflects in his eyes. The same golden skin, the same golden wings. Lilith smiles as she leans into him. “I can be her for you.” She wets her lips and whispers into his ear. “I can be whatever you need.”
            She guides her fingers along the markings on his neck and jaw, delighting in the pain, the lust, she feels rolling from him to her. A slight moan escapes his lips as she presses a brief kiss onto his neck.
           “Stop,” he growls, stretching away from her touch. “I want nothing from you, need nothing. Except your death.”
            Lilith laughs. “You need me more than you realize, my pet.” She pulls him to her, her lips brushing against his ear.”You’ll beg for me in the end.”

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:


Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
