Brand New Beautiful Books

All three of the Books of the Kindling are now newly revamped and newly refurbished. And all three are going to be up and available on online retail sites (and by order at your local bookstore) within days!!
 
Kanaxa also known as Nathalie Gray, award-winning Science Fiction author, has done a fantastic job with the covers of all three, as you know. She is an absolute professional, a talented artist, and so very generous in collaborating with authors on cover design.
 
As an important part of republishing the first three books in the series, the marvelous Patricia Rice, New York Times Bestselling Author of magical romance novels, agreed to allow a quote from her review of the series to be used on the cover. Kanaxa was instrumental in adding this lovely little recommendation quote to the covers in exactly the right spot: “One of my favorite new series.”
 
But the newly redesigned cover flats – the industry term for the art for the entire cover, front, back, and spine – are GORGEOUS! I wanted you guys to see them first in all their glory. Be sure to click on the cover flat to see it in all its high resolution splendor. ENJOY!

Insatiable or sated? #MFRWhooks

Welcome to my contribution to Book Hooks, a weekly meme hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog.

This is your chance to get hooked on a new book as various members of MFRW share short excerpts from their books. If you enjoy their sample, you can look for more information or even purchase the book through the links in their post.

I’m sharing another little sampling of More Than Magic, my new book now available from Samhain. Enjoy!

A Smidgen of More Than Magic:

“And you’re still not dead,” Grace said. She didn’t even look up from her note taking. She was seated against the wall with that journal propped against her knees.

“Still buried underground with an insatiable witch. I can live with that,” Nick said. His voice was hoarse. Understandable, considering what they had been up to for the last couple of hours.

“Insatiable?” She looked up then, her eyebrows raised.

He held up his hands in surrender. “Did I say that? I meant—uh—completely satisfied and fulfilled witch.” He smirked. “Sated. That’s the word. Sated.”

MoreThanMagic72lgBook Description:

When DEA agent Nick McKenzie arrives undercover on Woodruff Mountain, the beautiful, edgy owner’s awkward attempts to scare him off tell him something’s afoot, and it’s not her secret patch of rare ginseng.

The last thing Grace Woodruff needs underfoot is a handsome, enigmatic writer recovering from a recent illness. Until an accidental touch unleashes a stunning mystical force and Grace senses the wrath of a malicious blight at the heart of the mountain. Now Grace must choose between her need to hide her gift from the world…and her desire to save Nick’s life.

A Smidgen of More Than Magic:

“Not apologizing any more tonight,” he said firmly, kissing her again. Waiting.

“I could get accustomed to this kind of apologizing.” She ran her finger slowly down the side of his face to curve around his dimple. If this is all I have of you, it will be enough.

He wasn’t asking for more than a kiss, but she did, running her finger slowly back and forth across his bottom lip until he closed his eyes and groaned, pushing his hands away from the wall and grasping her shoulders as she kissed him. I hope you can forgive me when the magic wears off.

A Smidgen of More Than Magic:

Nick looked at her. “The rest of the stars?”

The ones that fly,” Grace said, smiling at the memory. “Pops caught me coming in one summer evening with a mason jar absolutely full of fireflies. I had punched holes in the top and felt as if I had my own personal lantern. I’m sure the fireflies felt differently about it.”

“Did your Pops tell you to let them go?”

“Pops never told us to do anything. Pops told stories. We had to figure out what they meant.”

A Samhain Tradition #MFRWhooks

I’m sharing another little sampling of More Than Magic, my new book now available from Samhain. This one is a bit solemn, occurring just after Nick shares with Grace what happened to his older brother Alex. Enjoy!

A Smidgen of More Than Magic:

“It’s a part of the ritual,” she said in a soft voice. “We set a place at the feast for the ones we’ve lost most recently, and then we eat the meal in silence out of respect for them.” She held the plate out to him. “I thought you might like to set one for Alex.”

Something that had been bolted down in his chest for a long time suddenly loosened and, for the first time in what seemed like forever, tears blurred his vision.

Damn the woman.
