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.

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.

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!

Pricing Policy Change

Going forward, novels in my paranormal romance series, The Collegium, will be priced at $2.99. Earlier in the year I committed to keeping them at 99c throughout 2016. Demon Hunter, the first in the series and a novella, will remain at 99c. New releases will also launch at 99c as an incentive to buy-buy-buy on pre-order and in the first two weeks. However, after that the price has to be dragged up to $2.99. The reason? Amazon.

I just read someone’s analysis of Amazon’s algorithms and while no one outside Amazon can confirm the analysis (and no one inside Amazon will do so) it is compelling. The bit that caught my attention was that Amazon sinks 99c books in its algorithmic searches.

But! you exclaim. I see lots of 99c books in my search results.

Yes. So do I. But looking at the sales data for my books in the context of other people’s sales data and analysis of their book promotion strategies, I can tell you that pricing the series at 99c is seriously hurting its discoverability.

So, because I like to be upfront about these things, that is my reason for reluctantly increasing the price of novels in my Collegium series to $2.99.

Doctor Wolf, paranormal romance, kindle unlimited, Doctor Wolf is currently 99c on pre-order before its April 27 release, and will remain at 99c for a fortnight after it.
