Murder of Crows is live!

The second book in The Twenty-Sided Sorceress series is now available.  I know, I wrote a sequel to something ( and I’m currently working on book 3). Everyone keel over in shock. Then go get it and tell your friends.  Here are the details (and the super awesome cover by Ravven).

 

They say you can never go home again. If only that were true…

Game store owner and nerd sorceress extraordinaire Jade Crow knows death stalks her in the form of her murderous ex-lover, Samir, a sorcerer who wants to eat her heart and take her power. With the help of her friends, and sexy tiger-shifter Alek, Jade trains for the inevitable confrontation.

Until her estranged father shows up begging for help. Someone or something is murdering the crow shifters of Three Feathers ranch and her father believes sorcery is the only way to stop the killings.

Faced with an unknown foe, a family that exiled her decades before, a deepening relationship with Alek, and Samir’s ever-present threat, Jade will need all the power she’s gained and then some to stop the Murder of Crows.

Murder of Crows is the second book in the Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series.

It’s Alive! New Series is a Go!

My new urban fantasy series is launched!  The series is along the lines of The Dresden Files or The Iron Druid Chronicles, with a heavy dash of gamer/nerd tossed in. Book one is out now (links to follow in this post) and books two and three will be available in August.  Here’s the details, with the shiny cover done by Ravven, description, and links to get it for yourself.  Please feel free to share this post!

Gamer. Nerd. Sorceress.

Jade Crow lives a quiet life running her comic book and game store in Wylde, Idaho. After twenty-five years fleeing from a powerful sorcerer who wants to eat her heart and take her powers, quiet suits her just fine. Surrounded by friends who are even less human than she is, Jade figures she’s finally safe.

As long as she doesn’t use her magic.

When dark powers threaten her friends’ lives, a sexy shape-shifter enforcer shows up. He’s the shifter world’s judge, jury, and executioner rolled into one, and he thinks Jade is to blame. To clear her name, save her friends, and stop the villain, she’ll have to use her wits… and her sorceress powers.

Except Jade knows that as soon as she does, a far deadlier nemesis awaits.

Justice Calling is the first book in The Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series.

The End is Nigh Arrives!

I have a story in a totally awesome anthology edited by J.J. Adams and Hugh HoweyThis is the first of a triptych of post-apocalypse anthologies.

My story was singled out in a recent review of the anthology on Wired.com, here’s an excerpt:

“Some stories hit with more force than others. “Goodnight Moon,” by Annie Bellet — a relatively quiet story about a group of astronauts saying their goodbyes and awaiting the end from their base on the moon — is both my favorite of the anthology and the one that wrecked me most thoroughly.”

Read the full review (and one of the stories free!) on Wired.com.

This anthology is chock full of amazing stories by award-winning and bestselling writers.  Here’s the table of contents:

Introduction by John Joseph Adams | “The Balm and the Wound” by Robin Wasserman | “Heaven is a Place on Planet X” by Desirina Boskovich | “Break! Break! Break!” by Charlie Jane Anders | “The Gods Will Not Be Chained” by Ken Liu | “Wedding Day” by Jake Kerr | “Removal Order” by Tananarive Due | “System Reset” by Tobias S. Buckell | “This Unkempt World is Falling to Pieces” by Jamie Ford | “BRING HER TO ME” by Ben H.
