Inkwell Guest: Karilyn Bentley and Demon Cursed

Hey gang! Today I have my friend and fellow Plotting Princess, Karilyn Bentley, on the blog today. She’s here to promote her newest release, DEMON CURSED, the third book in her DEMON HUNTRESS series. If you haven’t started the series, you can check out book 1, DEMON LORE, on Amazon here! Blurb: Gin Crawford, the world’s newest demon huntress, just wants to enjoy a football game, but finds herself hunting a serial killer minion instead. When his victims turn out to be the local football star’s female fans, she must determine if the player has joined forces with the minion, but her efforts lead her deeper into danger. When her mentor, Aidan Smythe, is attacked, Gin resolves to go to any lengths to save him, even if it exposes her most tightly held secret. Minions and demons, however, aren’t the only terrors she faces. Will she realize the greatest danger lies within—before it’s too late? Excerpt: I shake my head at him before straightening my shoulders. And slapping a hand over my mouth and nose. Yuck. Hours-old death in humid Texas weather makes for a smelly situation. At least I’m not the only one with their hand, or handkerchief, over their mouths. “What happened?” Smythe meets the gaze of each guard and the hyperventilating janitorial women who clearly found the body. One of the women points to where the body lies in front of the Dumpster, flat on her back, hands resting in classic death pose on her bloody stabbed chest,…

NEWS! New Series Coming Soon!

REALLY excited and happy to announce I SOLD! I’ve signed a contract for a new urban fantasy series called Dream Walker. The first book, Two Steps From Hell, is due out later this year from The Wild Rose Press. I’m especially excited about this new series because it’s something I’ve been working on for nearly two years and have been trying to sell for over a year. After several dozen rejections, I didn’t think it would ever find a home but I’m really glad it finally it. There are five books in the series. Book two, Blood and Bone, is currently underway. But, you say, what’s it about? Well, I’ll tell you! Angels, demons, a kick-ass heroine, a hot homicide cop, a sexy messenger angel, action, adventure, holy relics, exotic places and lots of secrets. It’s a story about the ultimate good versus the ultimate evil. So stay tuned for the release date, cover reveal and teasers! Here’s the blurb: Zoë Cavanaugh—immortal dream walker, sleep therapist and occasional consultant in homicide investigations—that’s me. I stay under the radar and try to help others get rid of their nightmares. Until a black-winged fallen angel insists I use my talents to find the Horn of Gabriel, one of the five Holy Relics. Even worse? His counterpart in Heaven, a messenger angel, wants to hire me for the same job. Torn between good and evil, I’m trapped in my own nightmare uncovering a family prophecy claiming I’m the Keeper of the Holy Relics….

#SnippetSunday – Feb 2, 2014

Today, ladies and gentlemen, I give you something complete different. Today I give you a sneak peek into Zoe’s world. Enjoy “I have a recurring dream. A nightmare actually. I don’t think I’ve slept a full night in weeks.” Get a load of this broad, would ya? She’s sitting there wringing her hands smelling like a French whore and looking like an American high-dollar call girl. Blonde, blue-eyed, gorgeous wearing haute couture. Prada by the looks of it. Louboutin shoes. Louis Vuitton handbag. Her expensive make-up tries to hide the bags under her eyes and the worry lines creasing her brow but I see them. I can see right through her. I know money when I see it. I came from money. But family money isn’t what keeps me afloat these days. It’s schmucks like her. The girly part of me envies her expensive outfit. The practical part of me knows I should keep my outfits dark and dreary. The kind that includes a lot of leather and boots so I don’t stand out in a world where someone like me doesn’t want to stand out. It’s hard for me blend in with my black hair and lavender eyes. Someone once told me I had an aristocratic face—high cheekbones, a long slender nose, perfect arched brows. I always thought I was sort of plain looking. And I’m tall. Five foot ten in flats. Just one step away from being a side-show freak. I know who she is but she thinks…
