Dear Reader – I've got a fun new book out, completely separate from the Mageverse series I think you'll enjoy. In this one, a half-demon succubus falls for a half-angel demon hunter. She's a normal girl, really, if you ignore the murderous demon father, the horns, the imp best friend...and, oh yeah, the evil tail...
For the past five years, Zana Alasdair has been obsessed with Rafe Cazadero. Which is an issue, to say the least, because Rafe is a half-angel demon hunter, and Zana is…Well, a demon. Sort of. Anyway, she's a succubus -- a half-human demon who draws magic from the erotic energy she collects making love to mortals. Which means Rafe would probably kill her if he caught her hanging around.
Which is why Pointy doesn't approve of her little crush on the hunter. Pointy is her evil tail, which has a mind of its own, and it's thoroughly convinced Rafe is Bad News.
And Pointy does have a…Well, point. Except if Rafe's not careful, he's going to get himself killed, and that would be a damn shame. Especially since one of those most interested in killing Rafe is Zana's psycho father, Jargoth, a Lord of Hell, who'd also like to kill Zana.
And Zana's been thinking.
Wouldn't it be great if she could talk Rafe and his magic sword into an alliance? She can be pretty persuasive…
Assuming she can persuade her evil tail to be a little less evil…

I've also got my latest Mageverse books out.
For Master of Desire...
For half-Sidhe billionaire Conal Donovan, rich people problems include an ex who’s an evil Fairy goddess named Siobhan. When Siobhan sends a team of werewolf terrorists to kidnap and torture him, he’s rescued by Helena Baker, African American, former FBI agent, and wolf-shifter. But Conal’s not out of the woods, because Siobhan has sworn to kill him, his sisters, and all his Sidhe friends. He and Helena decide the only way to protect the innocent is to focus Siobhan’s vicious jealousy on them by pretending to be lovers.
Helena Baker’s best friend is a gun inhabited by a retired death god, so she can handle werewolves. She’s less sure about the handsome white guy with the talking phoenix and the relentless commitment to protecting his sisters. Especially considering that she’s in her Burning Moon -- the werewolf version of heat. Her pheromones make Conal just as interested in her as she is in him. But is their growing love real? And what will happen when the hormones wear off?
Love really shouldn’t be this complicated.

I’ve also been busy adapting my class on writing fight scenes into a book from SavvyAuthors.com, a terrific site for writer education. It’s called How to Write Fight Scenes: Write fights that excite—even if you don’t know a right cross from a left jab.
Every fiction genre has certain scenes peculiar to it you have little use for if you write something else. Historical romance novelists don’t pen many space battles, just as authors of high fantasy have little occasion for BDSM club scenes.
But every genre writer needs to know how to write a good fight, whether it’s a duel at dawn, a zero-gravity brawl between aliens, or United States Marines hitting Omaha Beach.
In this book, I break down how to construct a fight scene point by point using YouTube videos and the basic principles of combat. I discuss how to create motivated characters in a desperate struggle for survival that will have readers and editors alike on the edge of their seats.
Here's an excerpt.
