Cover Reveal: PLAGUE CULT

Plague Cult – this is the first professionally designed cover I’ve ever commissioned. Isn’t it stunning? Lou Harper of Lou Harper Designs exceeded my high expectations and even higher hopes!

Plague Cult

In a small Texas town a desire for love becomes a curse that unleashes a deadly plague.

Ruth Warner is estranged from her family. She loves them, but her magic makes her an outsider in Bideer, Texas. Ruth has built a new life in New York as a healer at the Collegium.

Sometimes, though, you have to go home.

After the local coroner reports a suspicious death, the Collegium’s Chief Healer orders Ruth to Bideer. There’s a new cult in town, a lonely hearts club, and it’s playing reckless games with a death curse.

But Ruth isn’t going home alone.

Danger is in Shawn Jackson’s blood. He is a Collegium guardian, a mage trained to fight evil. He’s also a man accustomed to keeping secrets. He’s a hollerider, a huntsman; one of those who birthed the legend of the Wild Hunt. When he unleashes his magic, terror rides with him.

He’s also Ruth’s back-up.

As evil stalks an innocent town, the dedicated healer and battle-hardened marine must trust their own hurting hearts to prevent a devastating plague.

Warning: Plague Cult includes a haunted house, an unconventional ghost, and a home renovation romance.

If you love your paranormal romance fast-paced, intense and chilling, Plague Cult is irresistible.

I’ve managed to escape the computer for a couple of hours two Fridays in a row! This is an awesome achievement. I’ve been writing and organising marketing for my books like a machine for all of 2016, so I’m glad to be sneaking in a little bit of balance. Why, yes, there is a world outside!

Yesterday, I was near the coast, so I managed a few minutes at the beach. It was a windy day with the clouds rolling in, but so beautiful.

I’ve started a Review Team

Here’s the official announcement from Facebook:

I’d just like to add that writing this was HARD! I’m so shy about asking for reviews. I just dread it. What I’m hoping is that I get 20-30 people to sign up and then I can email you all when I have a new release and I’ll know that I’m not annoying you because you signed up! You want my books!

So, please, if you’re interested in reading and reviewing my books, please join the review team. Email me! If you already have my email address, please drop me a note telling me your e-format preference: i.e. mobi, pdf or epub. If you don’t have my email, jenny @ (let’s confuse the spammers) authorjennyschwartz (dot) com should reach me. If you don’t hear from me, then the gremlins ate your email. If you leave a comment, I’ll go chase them 🙂

Thank you.

I’ll go away and hyperventilate for a while. I really dread the whole requesting reviews thing. Thank you a hundred times to everyone who already shares reviews (D, I’m looking at you 🙂 )

PPS  Please don’t feel you have to sign up or ever review. That I’m a review requesting phobic author is my problem 😉

Doctor Wolf – Release Day!

Doctor Wolf, paranormal romance, kindle unlimited, I’m delighted to announce that Doctor Wolf is now live! Download it to your kindle here.

A werewolf in London romance.

Liz Jekyll might be the most wanted werewolf in London—wanted for dating, that is—but she doesn’t take it as a compliment. In fact, it’s a wretched nuisance because Liz has a vital secret to hide. What she needs is a disinterested werewolf who could pretend to be her boyfriend.

werewolf, London, shapeshifter romance, Kindle Unlimited, paranormal romance,Carson Erving would be very interested in Liz if it weren’t for Gentiana Aeternae. The botanist werewolf from Alabama has found the legendary Elixir Gentian, and ruthless people will do anything, kill anyone, to get their hands on a plant that can grant an extra hundred years of life.

As danger explodes around them, two very independent werewolves will have to do the unthinkable and rely on one another. But when Liz’s secret is revealed, who will die?

Doctor Wolf is at a special release price of 99c. From May 20, it’ll be $2.99 (although free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers to borrow), so hurry!
