Weekly Word Count #109

Word Count: 6500

What story I’m working on: Umm, I might be biting off more than I can chew, ha! So, with my secret Musketeers Pirate project, I hit 3k, Forged Decisions I slowed down to 15k, and I began my Steampunk with a Twist story, making it to 1500 words. I don’t normally balance three, but the Musketeers Pirate one is purely for fun, I’m a bit stalled on Forged Decisions until I find out the fate of the beginning of the series, and the Steampunk for a Twist one has a definite deadline, making it the easiest and clearest one to plunge into.

What I’m editing/marketing: Since Captivating Melody went through the rejection wringer, in the interim I re-read it and critiqued, so now I’m going through the edits and trying to prettify this old manuscript and inject some new life into it. I think there’s a lot of good I can do with it. Also, WAKING FOR WINTER is out!

Teaser of the week:

_Liv applied her cherry red lipstick in her rearview mirror with the precision of experience, her brand of war paint to give her confidence today._

Line of the week:

Droplets of salt water hit Fiona’s face as she propped herself up on the prow of the ship to catch the first glimpse of the land up ahead. Nine years had passed since she last set foot on this land—nine years since she’d been sold away and banished from this place. However, this time, she wasn’t a kid anymore. She’d trained, fought, and killed out on the seas, and this time, the entire country of Caer Donis better shake in their boots, because Fiona Blackwater had returned.

Pre-Order Waking for Winter!

Book 4 of the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles is now available for PRE-ORDER!

KM_WakingforWinter

The Philadelphia Coven has thwarted the Order of the Serpent’s every attempt to destroy their city, only to draw out the scariest nightmare from the Otherworld–the Caoranach. However, one member of the Philly Coven, Cami Akiyama, has already met this creature–the very monster who tortured her and branded her with a mark. Given their history, the Coven leader assigns her a bodyguard–none other than the gorgeous and lethal necromancer, Dante Martinez, the ex-boyfriend she’d disappeared on years ago. A single conversation confirms the spark between them never died, and based on the way Dante teases and flirts, he’s not about to let that flame get snuffed out without a fight.

No one has ever compared to the incendiary passion Dante inspired in her, but after being marked and broken by a monster, she’s too damaged to rekindle any sort of relationship. Not like that stops him. If anything, he fights harder for the memories of a love that kept her sane on her bleakest nights. And despite every effort to distance, Cami finds herself falling for him all over again. Except the Caoranach doesn’t just plan to devastate this city. The Caoranach possesses a deadly secret; one, when revealed, holds the power to shatter Cami completely.

Philly Fun in Waking for Winter!

With my latest novel and the final book in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series coming out next week, I wanted to chat a little bit about what hijinks the crew gets up to this time!

Throughout the series, we’ve covered Fairmount Park like…a bunch. We’ve also visited the Magic Gardens on South Street, hit the goth/industrial club, Chinatown, Mount Moriah Cemetery, and the Laurel Hill Cemetery. And Waking for Winter isn’t about to disappoint with more Philly exploration. On top of roaming through more of these city streets, one of my favorite scenes in the book takes place at the Wells Fargo center amidst an ice hockey game with our home team. (The Flyers, for those who don’t know. Even folks like me who aren’t as into the sportsball are quite aware of the Philly teams.)

The Coven Chronicles series dives into the heart of this city, albeit an alternate version infected with monsters, and I hope you guys can see the uniqueness on every page.

Join the fun in Waking for Winter!

New Philadelphia Coven Chronicles Release!

Rising for Autumn is OUT! Get your copy here!!!

km_risingforautumn

Crisis and danger have become second nature for Alanna Carrington. After all, as the boss of the Philadelphia Coven, she’s responsible for upholding the laws amongst the supernatural. Which means when the Order of the Serpent rears its ugly head, this time with the most powerful necromancer this city’s ever seen, she’s the one person who can keep Philly safe. Ex-Order djinn and now ally, Samuel Karim, happens to be the best-suited guy to help. Except he’s also the first man who’s stoked her interest in far too long, and ever since she commandeered the lamp he’s tethered to for safekeeping, he also hates her guts.

As the Order gathers the necromancers of her city and sparks a dangerous alliance, she finds herself working with Samuel Karim more and more. Hatred turns to passion, and when he exhibits a strength and compassion that breaks through her ironclad defenses, she finds herself falling deeper despite the complications between them. Yet with her city under siege and their lives on the line, the sharp desire between them erupts into the temptation to break their own rules, before the Order of the Serpent robs them of the chance permanently.
