Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 5/20/17

This weekly installment is intended to help readers find out the news in the book world.  Pull up a chair and get in on the fun.

I have news!  Several updates from authors that adore.

Quincy makes another appearance in this new Harker novella.

TitleDevil Inside 
AuthorJohn G. Hartness
SeriesQuincy Harker, Demon Hunter #9
Genre:  Fantasy/Urban Fantasy
Release Date:  May 19, 2017
Publisher’s Description:  Quincy Harker is back!

The Quest for Glory continues as Quincy Harker travels to Charleston looking for a missing Archangel and becomes embroiled in local magical turf wars and potentially murderous politics. Things really heat up when an evil wizard tries to burn the city to the ground, with Harker at ground zero in the conflagration!

Glory gave up her wings to save the world, now Harker and the Shadow Council are working to get them back. To do that, they have to locate eight AWOL Archangels and convince them to go back to work. But not all these angels want to get back to the business of Heaven, and not all of them even remember who they are.

 

Kris Michaels is one of those writers that I have to buy everything she writes.  She is releasing the next in the series of The Kings of Guardian. Watch for the review here after release date.

Title:  Chief 
AuthorKris Michaels 
Series: The Kings of Guardian
Genre: Contemporary Military Romance
Release Date:  May 30, 2017
Publisher’s Description:  Cloaked in the identity of David Xavier, a billionaire player in multiple world theaters, Mike White Horse worked to enter the Russian Mafia’s lair, by stalking a shadowy creature named “The Concierge.” The Russian woman brokered young innocents into slavery, and Mike meant to destroy her and the organization she worked for. He should have despised her for the atrocious crimes she facilitated, but too often love and hate are the flip sides of the same coin, and what Mike felt for Taty was not hate. It didn’t matter. He’d destroy the Bravata and all its associates–even if it meant part of his soul sat in prison for the rest of her life.

Driven by heartbreak, Tatyana Petrov joined the elite British M16 unit, and for eight years, wormed her way into the trust of the Bravata as she strove to identify the human filth selling those innocents to billionaires like David Xavier. She’d found it easy to loathe the wealthy men who bought her “toys”–until David. For reasons that she wouldn’t acknowledge, she wanted to protect this one man from the retribution rapidly approaching.

Neither knew the other’s true mission but even as mortal adversaries, they’d each given the other a part of their soul, and now only devastation and sorrow waited.

 

Look at this cover!  Isn’t it awesome!  That’s the first time I’ve ever seen someone with that many weapons.

Title:  Lawless Lands

CALLING ALL NATHANIEL CADE LOVERS!

It’s been awhile and I have been waiting and waiting for any news on The President’s Vampire , Nathaniel Cade, by Christopher Farnsworth.  

I loved the series and then it just stopped.  I got a feeling that the author got involved with another series but that’s ok because we still get to indulge in Farnsworth’s writing.  Anyway, the point of the story is this:  Nathanial Cade is BACK!  Christopher Farnsworth created a novella called Deep State.

Description:  It’s been four years since a new president ascended to the White House. Zach Barrows has not seen Nathaniel Cade, the President’s Vampire, since being fired from his position as Cade’s handler and sent to a small, cramped office in a government building in Nebraska.

Once, he and Cade fought a shadow war against the monsters, spies, and demons that threatened the United States. Now Zach pushes papers and listens to conspiracy theories from people who have no idea how dark the real world can get.

Then Zach is summoned to the Situation Room by President Lester Wyman, who is both the commander-in-chief and a possible traitor. 

But he and Cade are bound to follow Wyman’s orders. They are told to find out why a top-secret missile silo has gone offline. If they fail, a nuclear warhead will launch, and the world will die in a hail of fire.

In other words, it’s just another night on the job.

After a long absence, Cade and Zach are back in action together — for what might be the last time.

Sounds great, right?  Well, there is a catch.  A person can’t get Deep State unless Farnsworth’s book Flashmob is pre-ordered.  That is the sequel to Killfile.

Description:  Arriving at the wedding of Kira Sadeghi, a reality television celebrity he recently saved from kidnappers, Smith witnesses a group of gunmen open fire, hitting the bride and others. Though he’s unarmed, Smith cripples one of the killers and is able to pry one word from his mind: “Downvote.”

Eager to learn more, Smith hacks into the brain of an FBI agent to discover the Bureau has been investigating a nefarious new threat called “Downvote,” an encrypted site on the dark net that lists the names of celebrities and offers a hefty bounty for anyone who can kill them—unleashing an anonymous and deadly flashmob with a keystroke.

Finding a mastermind on the internet is like trying to catch air—unless you’re John Smith. Motivated by money and revenge, he traces a series of electronic signatures to a reclusive billionaire living at sea, accompanied by a scary-smart female bodyguard who becomes Smith’s partner in his quest. The hunt for their prey will lead from Hong Kong to Reykjavik to a luxury gambling resort deep in the Laotian jungle. Yet always this criminal mastermind remains one step ahead.

The only way Downvote’s creator can stop Smith is to kill him . . . because while this diabolical genius can run, there’s no hiding from a man who can read minds.

BUT WAIT – There’s more!  If you pre-order the book, you have to send in the receipt to flashmobpreorder@gmail.com , you’ll get on the list for the June 27 release of Deep State.  There are also more hooks in this deal.  You will also get excerpts from Codename: Nightmare Pet and a deleted scene from Red, White and Blood.

Here’s my opinion.  It’s really a winning deal all the way around.  The books KillFile and Flashmob both sound very interesting plus there’s the fact of the Cade add on.  It’s a deal that I can’t refuse.

Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 5/7/17

This weekly installment is intended to help readers find out the news in the book world.  Pull up a chair and get in on the fun.

Wow.  It’s been quiet this week.  It’s like a lot of people are off at a party somewhere and not working.  Oh, wait.  They are.  

RT Booklovers Convention is being held in Atlanta, GA this year.  May 2 – 7th…so today is the last day.  Everyone is getting ready to pack up and head back to their worlds.  I wish I was one of them, but not this year unfortunately.  Someday, maybe.  Next year is in Reno, NV.  Yep, you heard right.  “The Biggest Little City in the World”.

What do they do at the RT Booklover’s Convention?  Whoa.  EVERYTHING.  There is a giant book fair where a person could meet and greet up to 600 authors.  This year the list was A-Maz-ING!  I would have loved to see (just a few of my picks): Jenna Black, Shayla Black, Viola Carr, Jennifer Estep, Heather Graham, Molly Harper, Darynda Jones, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kris Michaels, Chloe Neill, Ella Quinn, Julia Quinn, C.J. Redwine, Diana Rowland, Jeanne Stein, Susan Stoker and that’s just a few.  There are rows and rows of authors.  It would make a reader quiver in excitement, I’m tellin’ ya.

Darynda Jones, Chloe Neill, Charlaine Harris, Jennifer Estep (not 1b2’s photo)

The RT Booklover’s Convention is for everyone.  Readers, Bloggers (that’s me), Reviewers (hey, that’s me too), Booksellers and Librarians as well as those folks out there that want to learn more about their craft.  Their writing craft.  The panels to sit and listen to sound amazing.   There are some geared towards the business and marketing areas.  There are some for the readers.  There are some for the booksellers and librarians.  Check out the agenda and I bet everyone could find something that would be interesting.

If it’s merchandise that would trip your trigger, there is a RT Bazaar.  It’s one of those things that a person would just have to peruse.  It’s too good to pass up.

Last year I went to Book Expo America in Chicago, IL.  It was an adventure that I will remember forever.  Everyone was so nice.  It was an incredible experience and one I hope to try again.  I’ve never been to RT, but at least two bloggers on this site have talked about going.  I believe that this convention would be an experience not to be duplicated either.  Afraid of getting lost? Of how it works? Of how much or little to register for?  Heck, there are FAQ‘s that would answer all the questions.  Those folks at RT Book Reviews are one of the best resources out there in the reading world.  They review and talk about all the genres.  Check them out.  You won’t be sorry.

Stop by next week and I’ll hopefully have something to write about as the authors get back to their desks.

Book Description: Jane walks softly and carries a big stake to keep the peace in New Orleans, all part of her job as official Enforcer to Leo Pellissier, Master of the City. But Leo’s reign is being threatened by a visit from a delegation of ancient European vampires seeking to expand their dominions.

And there’s another danger to the city. When she hears reports of revenant vampires, loose in NOLA and out for blood, Jane goes to put them down—and discovers there’s something unusual about these revenants. They never should have risen.

Jane must test her strength against a deadly, unnatural magic beyond human understanding, and a ruthless cadre of near-immortals whose thirst for power knows no bounds…

Book Description: An ancient power.

Beneath a mountain on an uninhabited continent is said to be a fabled city, a city occupied by an ancient goblin civilization founded for only one reason—to protect and defend the Heart of Nidaar, an artifact that can harness the forces of nature as a weapon.

An elite team of combat mages.

Chief mage and goblin duke Tamnais Nathrach must help the guardians keep the legendary power out of the hands of a malevolent goblin brotherhood and their otherworldly allies, whatever the cost. Together with his hand-picked team—which includes elf pirate (and team demolitions expert) Phaelan Benares—Tam descends into a vast subterranean world both wondrous and terrifying, a world laid with deadly traps and filled with apex predators from another age.

The countdown to the end of the world.

Some secrets are meant to stay buried. When the Heart of Nidaar is accidentally awakened, and aimed at the west coast of the Seven Kingdoms, Tam and his team are in a race against time to prevent the deaths of millions. To succeed, they must confront their deepest fears, unmask their darkest secrets, and reveal their shameful pasts, testing the bonds of friendship and beyond. To fail means death for them all—and the end of all life in the Seven Kingdoms.

Title: Owl and the Electric Samurai
Author: Kristi Charish
Release Date: May 8, 2017
Series: The Adventures of Owl #3 (and Captain too)

Book Description:  The third exciting novel starring the unforgettable antiquities thief Owl—a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world. From the pen of rising urban fantasy star Kristi Charish (Owl and the Japanese Circus) and for fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and fantasy lovers everywhere.

The International Archaeology Association (IAA) is responsible for keeping all things supernatural under wraps. They’re also responsible for ruining the promising archaeology career of Alix Hiboux, better known as Owl.

Needless to say, Owl’s still a little sore about that.

Just to keep Owl’s life lively, the IAA has opened a bounty on the two designers of World Quest, the online RPG that is much, much more than it seems. Owl needs to locate the notorious gaming duo before the other mercenaries do. But finding the gamers won’t be easy since every clue points to them hiding out in the legendary lost city of Shangri-La. Not to mention that the last time Owl and the game designers spoke, their conversation didn’t exactly end on the best note…

Meanwhile, undercurrents of supernatural politics are running amok in Tokyo, dragging Owl and her friends into a deadly game of wits with an opponent who calls himself the Electric Samurai. The cost of losing? All-out civil war between two powerful supernatural factions.

Title: Wilde Child
Author: Jenn Stark
Release Date: May 17, 2017
Series: Immortal Vegas #7

Book Description: Come away, O human child…

No matter the job, no matter the client, Tarot-reading magical artifacts hunter Sara Wilde has only one hard-and-fast rule: protect the children. But the newest strain of technoceutical drugs–specifically designed to alter psychic children’s DNA–has thrown the arcane black market into a frenzy. As mistress of the House of Swords, Sara pits the power of her worldwide criminal syndicate against insidious enemies and even more treacherous allies to combat the threat, but it’s not enough. To destroy these drugs at their source, she must break her cardinal vow and put a child at risk.

Guided by a boy altered by technoceuticals, Sara races to derail the modernization of an ancient ritual devoted to a malevolent god. Except the children aren’t her only responsibility any longer. The Magician of the Arcana Council and her own House demand her focus as the war on magic erupts violently in several hot spots around the globe. Sara’s pretty sure things can’t get more complicated, until she discovers who is leading one of the other four fabled mortal Houses of Magic…a discovery that brings her face-to-face with the mother she’s never known.

Family skeletons just won’t stop dancing when you’re a Wilde Child.

Title: The Darkest Corner
Author: Liliana Hart
Release Date: May 23, 2017
Series: Gravediggers #1

Book Description: The Gravediggers aren’t exactly what they seem. They’re the most elite of the world’s fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they’ve been betrayed by the countries they’ve died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families.

Sometimes the dead do rise…

Solomon Lange is a dead man walking. A former black ops agent, he was disavowed and stripped of all honor before being recruited as a Gravedigger. But his honor and good name no longer matter, because no one knows he’s alive, and he’ll never get the recognition he deserves. His mission is simple: save the world or die trying. And for God’s sake, don’t ever fall in love. That’s a rule punishable by death. The kind of death a man can’t be brought back from.

Tess Sherman is the only mortician in Last Stop, Texas. She has no idea how Solomon Lange ended up in her funeral home, but she’ll eat her hat if he’s only a funeral home assistant. Solomon is dangerous, deadly, and gorgeous. And she knows her attraction to him can only end in heartache.

Solomon is on a mission to stop the most fatal terror attack the world has ever known—what’s known as The Day of Destiny—a terrorist’s dream. But when he discovers Tess has skills he can use to stop them, he has to decide if he can trust her with secrets worth dying for. And, most important, he has to decide if he can trust her with his heart.

Nell’s News, Gossip and Book Hunt 3/26/17

News and information at One Book Two.  Author cover reveals, author news and upcoming book releases.

This Weeks News:

I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to one of my favorite authors, D.B. Reynolds.  She lost her husband on March 17, 2017.   Please, say an extra prayer for Ms. Reynolds.  Sadness is hard to overcome.

New Releases:

Craig Schaefer is one of my top favorite authors.  He is releasing book #3 in the Harmony Black series.  Glass Predator will be released March 28, 2017. I won’t be able to review it for a couple days after, but check back in with me.

Title:  Glass Predator
Description:  For Harmony Black, practicing witch and government agent, defeating criminal masterminds and eliminating supernatural threats are all in a day’s work. She’s ready to fight, as long as she can count on her partner, Jessie Temple; her team at off-the-books special FBI unit Vigilant Lock; and her magic. But her latest case threatens it all.

A high-profile bank robbery reveals thieves with the same unnatural strength and turquoise eyes as Jessie, who was touched by the King of Wolves. Jessie becomes unstable, struggling with her inner Beast, and Harmony’s magic is threatened by unexpected interference. Even worse, the women uncover a secret their own handler may kill to protect, forcing Vigilant Lock to go off the grid.

From the smoky back rooms of Washington, DC, inhabited by the crooked elite, to the astonishing high-rises of corrupt upper-crust Manhattan, Harmony and Jessie fight to uncover and halt a mass conspiracy threatening US soil in a race against time—and hell.

This is a series Ruby Lee got me hooked on a couple of years ago.  I stopped reading because it made me nervous.  The endings weren’t exactly cliffhangers, but they weren’t always happy for the protagonist.  Anyway, Amanda Stevens is releasing #6 in the Graveyard Queen series, The Awakening, on March 28, 2017.  Ruby has promised to tell me what happens so I can start on book #3.  I know, I know.  I’m ridiculous.

Book Description:  Shush…lest she awaken…

My name is Amelia Gray, a cemetery restorer who lives with the dead. An anonymous donor has hired me to restore Woodbine Cemetery, a place where the rich and powerful bury their secrets. Forty years ago, a child disappeared without a trace and now her ghost has awakened, demanding that I find out the truth about her death. Only I know that she was murdered. Only I can bring her killer to justice. But the clues that I follow—a haunting melody and an unnamed baby’s grave—lead me to a series of disturbing suspects.

For generations, The Devlins have been members of Charleston’s elite. John Devlin once turned his back on the traditions and expectations that came with his birthright, but now he has seemingly accepted his rightful place. His family’s secrets make him a questionable ally. When my investigation brings me to the gates of his family’s palatial home, I have to wonder if he is about to become my mortal enemy.

Warrior Unraveled releases March 29, 2017.  This is a crossover between series.  Tina Folsom writes the Scanguard Vampire series (if you haven’t read them, the first one is Samson’s Lovely Mortal and it’s free on Kindle) and she writes the Stealth Guardians series. Wesley, Haven’s brother (see Yvette’s Haven) is kind of a liason between Scanguards and the Stealth Guardians and this is his story.  I have always favored Scanguards Vampires over the Stealth Guardians, but I can’t give a good solid reason. Again, I am ridiculous.

Book Description: Scanguards witch Wesley Montgomery’s attempt at forming an alliance between his group and the elusive Stealth Guardians meets with resistance and suspicion from Virginia Robson, council member for the Guardians. The fiery redhead who gets Wesley’s heart pumping thinks that he was sent by the demons to infiltrate them, a belief that is reinforced when the Stealth Guardians are attacked in their stronghold.
Despite her better judgment, Virginia is drawn to the handsome witch who offers his assistance. But can she trust the stranger of whom she knows nothing, even though his touch and kisses ignite a need in her that she’s never before experienced?

What will prove more difficult for the pair: finding a future together, or battling demons that threaten them at every turn?

Ivana (here’s her review of Bound) got me hooked on the Alex Verus seriesBenedict Jacka releases book #8 on April 4.  Check it out.

TitleBound
AuthorBenedict Jacka
SeriesAlex Verus, Book 08
Publish Date: April 4, 2017 by Ace
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Publisher’s Description: Mage Alex Verus is caught between a rock and a hard place in the eighth urban fantasy novel from the national bestselling author of Burned.

Alex Verus is still haunted by his time apprenticed to Richard Drakh. He’s been free of him for many years, but now the only way to keep his friends from being harmed is to again work for Richard and his deadly ally. Even worse, he’s forced to bring the Light mage Anne into this servitude as well.

After weeks of being hunted and finally cornered into what he thought was his last stand, Alex never thought his life would be spared—and never anticipated at what price. This time, the diviner can see no way out…

Here’s reviews of the others in the series…

Viola Carr is releasing #3 in the Electric Empire series on April 18.  I am so excited because I LOVE this series.  It’s fun, it’s steampunk, it’s Jekyll/Hyde with a spin.  Be sure you have no appointments when you sit down to read this series because you will miss them.  The pages will just fly!

Title:  The Dastardly Miss Lizzie
Book DescriptionDr. Eliza Jekyll must turn to her dark side, Miss Lizzie Hyde, to stop a madman targeting London’s most important scientists and sorcerers terrorizing the city with dark magic in this third Electric Empire novel—a dazzlingly original steampunk fantasy set in the gritty world of alternate Victorian London, with echoes of H G. Wells classic, The Time Machine

Being two people in one body isn’t easy. Metropolitan Police crime scene physician Eliza Jekyll is trying to maintain a semblance of control, even as her rebellious second self, Lizzie, grows increasingly wild—threatening the respectable Eliza’s reputation and her marriage to Remy Lafayette, the Royal Society investigator and occasional lycanthrope. With England on the brink of war, Remy’s away in sorcery-riddled Paris on a secretive mission that grows ever more sinister. Has he been an enemy agent all along? Or is coping with Eliza’s secret divided self finally driving her mad?

Eliza needs her mind clear and sharp if she’s to catch an evil genius who is killing eminent scientists. The chase uncovers a murky world of forbidden books, secret laboratories, and a cabal of fanatical inventors whose work could change the world—or destroy it—and who may hold answers to Eliza’s past.

As sorcery-wielding terrorists attack London, Eliza discovers her own enemies are closing in, driving her to desperate measures—enlisting the aid of the wily, resourceful, mercurial Lizzie—to thwart the killer. But Lizzie’s got her own life now, and true to her nature, will resort to the devious and diabolical to keep it. Even if it means throwing Eliza to the wolves, and letting the world burn. . . .

1B2’s reviews of book 1 & 2:

The last two on my list really need no introduction.  They even probably don’t even need an announcement because everyone already is waiting impatiently for their release.  I would be amiss to leave them out, though, so here is:

Title:  Blade Bound
Author: Chloe Neill
Series: Chicagoland Vampires #13
Release Date: April 25, 2017
Book Description: The thrilling final installment of Chloe Neill’s New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series sees a sinister sorcery advancing across Chicago, and it may usher in the fall of Cadogan House…

Since the night of her brutal attack and unwilling transformation to vampire, Merit’s stood as Sentinel and protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House. She’s saved the Windy City from the forces of darkness time and again with her liege and lover, Ethan Sullivan, by her side.

When the House is infiltrated and Merit is attacked by a vampire seemingly under the sway of dark magic, Merit and Ethan realize the danger is closer than they could have ever imagined. As a malign sorcery spreads throughout the city, Merit must go to war against supernatural powers beyond her comprehension. It’s her last chance to save everything—and everyone—she loves.

Title: Snared
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Elemental Assassin #16
Release Date: April 25, 2017
Book Description:  The sixteenth book in the New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series that RT Book Reviews calls, “An extraordinary series…[containing] one of the most intriguing heroines in the genre.”

If you don’t know Gin “the Spider” Blanco, you don’t know dangerous female heroines.

Irony 101—The Spider herself snared in someone else’s web…

Another week, another few clues trickling in about the Circle, the mysterious group that supposedly runs the city’s underworld. Gathering intel on my hidden enemies is a painstaking process, but a more immediate mystery has popped up on my radar: a missing girl.

My search for the girl begins on the mean streets of Ashland, but with all the killers and crooks in this city, I’m not holding out much hope that she’s still alive.

A series of clues leads me down an increasingly dark, dangerous path, and I realize that the missing girl is really just the first thread in this web of evil. As an assassin, I’m used to facing down the worst of the worst, but nothing prepares me for this new, terrifying enemy—one who strikes from the shadows and is determined to make me the next victim.

Nell’s Gossip and Sunday Book Hunt 3/19/17

Sunday Book Gossip! I love gossip and what gossip is any better than book or author gossip? Normally, I’m not one to spread rumors, so be sure you listen close the first time.

This Weeks Gossip:

Exciting news on the Jenn Stark Immortal Vegas series front.  Wilde Child has a release date of May 17, 2017!  Yay!  If you like action/adventure with magic and a bit of romance/tension added in, this is the series for you.  I totally love it.  Here’s reviews from the previous additions to the series.

 

Fans of Kevin Hearne…PAY ATTENTION!  Oberon is going to release his sequel to the Purloined Poodle.  It will be called The Squirrel on the Train.  It’s #2 in the Oberon’s Meaty Mysteries series.  Purloined Poodle is a tale from the view point of Atticus’s best canine friend, Oberon.  Check out 1B2’s review and check back for the release date when I finally hear it.

 

Got a note from another fave author this week.  Lisa Shearin, author of SPI Files and the Raine Benares series says:

Ruins & Revenge: I finished writing Ruins & Revenge last Friday. It’s in editing now (content, then copy editing, then production), and will be released on May 2. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available for preorder.

The Ghoul Vendetta audio book: My agent contacted Audible, and they said The Ghoul Vendetta is in production. As to a release date, they said “less than three months.” As soon as I know something more definite, I’ll let you know.

New paranormal thriller series: While I wait for the content edits to come back on Ruins & Revenge, I’m plotting a brand new paranormal thriller series. It’s gonna be so freakin’ cool!

Three books a year/three series: Before anyone freaks out that the new series will bump any of your favs, rest assured that my three-books-a-year writing schedule will include one book each from Raine Benares, a SPI Files, and the new thriller series.

Next book I’ll be writing: I may be plotting a new series now, but the next book I’ll write will be another SPI Files, *then* I’ll do the first book in the new series. I want to allow enough time for the new cast of characters to come together in my head.

 

 

I’ve found a new series that I’m interested in.  Actually, a couple – so let me share.

Title: Mark of Cain
Series: Immortal Mercenary #1
Author: Conner Kressley
Description: My name isn’t Callum Coldwell but, for your own sake, you should probably call me that.

They say someone is murdered every minute…and I’m the reason why.

When I killed my brother, the Big Guy burned a mark into my skin and set me to wandering until the end of time. That was a while ago, and I think I’ve used my forever pretty well. Bagged a few women, saved a few lives, and gotten myself into and out of more trouble than I care to remember.

But something’s happening now. Evil forces are circling the wagons, and something sinister is getting ready to make a play for the big time. And, of course, it has me in its crosshairs.

When I said I wasn’t my brother’s keeper, I had no idea how wrong I was.

By now you’ve probably figured out my name. But don’t say it.

Bad things happen when people say my name.

AND

Title: Calling All Angels
Author: John G. Hartness
Series: Shadow Council Files #1
Description:  They are humanity’s defense against the supernatural. They are the light in the darkness. They are the guardians that walk in the night. They are The Shadow Council.

Joanna Harrison is a freelance editor, working mother, and loving daughter. She is also the great-granddaughter or legendary steel driving man John Henry, and she has taken up his hammer to fight against the monsters that threaten her family and her world. She is Jo Henry, and she packs one hell of a punch.

Jo is fighting like the devil, looking for an angel. She’s on a mission to find the Archangel Michael, give him back his hold sword, and bring his memories back. But first she has to stay alive. Through underground cage fights and demon hunts in the desert, Jo will need all the help she can get to wake up the angel. And when a demon kidnaps her mother and daughter, it’s time to come out swinging.

 

I went to Book Expo America last year in May.  It was AWESOME! If there is a chance to go again, I’m all over it.  This year it’s in the Big Apple.  I know there will be tons more publishers and authors that I would love to meet, but it’s in NYC.  The major drawback is having to ship all the free books home.  Luckily last year I had a car to pack full, so it wasn’t an issue. I’m thinking it’d be a huge issue in NYC.  I’m also thinking it’s going to be 25 times more busy.  This year it’s from May 31 – June 2, 2017.  Any authors out there need a roadie?
