Hi fellow Readers and Authors!
I’m excited and thrilled that today is release day for my debut book, Relic Defender: Key of Solomon with Samhain Publishing.
RELIC DEFENDER: KEY OF SOLOMON is the first book in a series surrounding the search and protection of world-altering relics. The series mixes mortals and immortals, forcing them to work together when most of the time, that’s the last thing they want to do.
To celebrate release week, I’m hosting a Virtual Book Launch party at www.relicdefender.wordpress.com from March 1 through March 6. The prizes include Samhain Publishing gift certificates, local (Oregon) chocolate, Starbucks cocoa, free downloads and a lovely angel wing necklace and earring set.
To enter, just visit my blog at the above address, make a comment each day you are interested in entering and you’ll be entered in the drawing. If you mention, in the comments on any daily blog post at www.relicdefender.wordpress.com, that you came to my blog from this post and answer this question, “What makes a shape-shifting rock happy?”, you’ll be entered in a drawing for a $20.00 Samhain gift certificate!
And while you are at the blog, check out the extra excerpts of RELIC DEFENDER: KEY OF SOLOMON, a preview of book 2, RELIC DEFENDER: THE SKULL OF DOOM, a taste of the backstory to some of the items mentioned, and even some “deleted scenes”.
Here’s my blurb on this fun story to write:
Anthropology PhD candidate Lexi Harrison never bares it all when she belly dances for a strip club crowd. She doesn’t have to—she’s that good. Every performance earns money toward her degree, and restores the sense of power that her painful childhood ripped away.
Something is different about tonight. A man whose silver gaze seems to touch her skin beneath her veils. When a rowdy customer crosses the line, he comes to her rescue with the speed of a hawk—complete with wings.
Mikos Tyomni has never seen anyone dance the raqs sharqi like Lexi. Trust his tormentor, Archangel Michael, to put him in close contact with the cause of his downfall: a mortal woman. Particularly this mortal woman. The Defender. He has only thirty days to win her trust before Hell’s deadliest demons attempt the mother of all prison breaks.
No matter how sexy the messenger is, Lexi’s career plans don’t include some crazy idea that she’s the last line of defense against the forces of evil. Until her university mentor’s murder leaves her holding the key to Hell. And fighting a losing battle against a passion forbidden by Heaven.
Warning: This title contains a dark and sexy fallen angel, bad-ass demons, a heroine with kick-assitude tossed together with mythology, archeology and a shape-shifting rock with a fondness for the gangsters of the 1920s.
