New Release: Werewolf Descent by Elizabeth Kolodziej

Great things are happening for my writing buddy Elizabeth Kolodziej! This week, the second novel of her Last Witches Series hit the shelf. I’m currently about 20% into this book and enjoying the story line. Despite not reading her first novel, Vampyre Kisses, I’m not lost. So if you missed the first, don’t be afraid to start here. If you’re not one to start a series in the center, you know Vampyre Kisses is always waiting for you… well, unless the apocalypse comes or something. Then you might have trouble finding any books. I can’t read the future, so I’m not sure… I’m just speculating.

Head over to her Facebook page, congratulate her. Better yet, pick up her books! 🙂

Last witch in the world, Faith Scott, and her Irish vampire boyfriend Trent have just come back from fighting for their lives to recover the Vampiric Blood gem and Werewolf Moon gem. Thinking they could finally relax and work on the romance growing between them, they now meet a mysterious psychic vampire named Vincent who has his heart set on being with Faith.

Soon bizarre killings of Zou Tai’s werewolf pack begin, with rumors of an alchemist possessing the famed philosophers stone being the assailant; which, causes Faith to turn to Vincent for help in figuring out why the werewolves are being murdered.
It isn’t long before all those around them test Trent and Faith’s love, along with their abilities, once again. It is all Trent can do to keep Faith safe by his side while both go up against a deadly alchemist, deceptive gods, and having to rescue the werewolf prince; yet, after a deal with the God of Werewolves will Trent be able to save himself too?

Werewolf Descent is available at: Smashwords, Amazon, and Barnes & Nobles.

Shadow Cat on Kindle + Day 3 Winners [CLOSED]

So I’m typing this, and I’m quite giddy. Shadow Cat went live a few hours ago on Amazon. It’s only right to do a little promo… and of course a giveaway! If you’re not familiar with Shadow Cat, have a go at the excerpts on my Free Reads page. Amazon is a little slow with getting the product details listed, so let me supply it for you here. 🙂

They formed a bond so strong even death couldn’t keep them apart.

CEO Eric Randall’s plan is simple—fix the mess his researchers have created in Malaysia, experience the pleasures the country has to offer, and hightail it back to the comforts of America. Then again, simple plans always seem to have a way of going awry. All it takes is one beautiful aborigine to completely flip his world upside down, and Eric finds himself stranded in a world of Malaysian myths and legends.

A novice shaman amongst her people, Berani is free and independent; the rainforest is her playground. Yet all is not well in her homeland. Evil forces are slowly causing her people to dwindle to extinction. When a strange speaking man invades her forest, she has one more item to add to her already troubled life. One thing for sure, she’s not about to let some overbearing human control her on her own turf. Attraction or no, she will fight Eric tooth and claw to maintain her freedom. But will she end up destroying herself in the process?

If Berani wishes to save her family… if Eric wishes to reclaim his old life, they must stand together against the threats of encroaching wehr-tigers and bloodsucking demons… or perish.
