Inquisitor PromoHey, folks! Free book alert! The first novel of my urban fantasy series, Inquisitor, is available for free on amazon today. Go grab yourself a copy and tell your friends.

Tomorrow, March 1, Winter Wolf will be on sale through a countdown deals promotion, so don't miss your chance to get the second installment of the Witch & Wolf series at a great price.

When Allison is asked to play Cinderella-turned-Fianceé at a Halloween ball, the last thing she expected was to be accused of murder. She has to find the killer or she'll be put to death for the crimes she didn't commit. To make matters worse, the victims are all werewolves.

On the short list of potential victims, Allison has to act fast, or the killer will have one more body to add to his little black book of corpses.

There's only one problem: One of the deaths has struck too close to home, and Allison's desire for self-preservation may transform into a quest for vengeance…

From Chapter One

“A Halloween party with your mother, Mark? Have you lost your mind? She’s never going to believe we’re a couple, for one. Two, you live in New York City. I live in Atlanta. You know, that place you flew me in from? She’s got no reason to believe us.”

“I might have told her that you are an old college friend, and we’d been seeing each other on and off since we got our degrees. It’s even true, just not for the reasons she thinks. Come on, Allison. It’s only for one night. You’ll save me from marrying a woman I’ve never met.”

I sighed. “Seriously? Did your mother have you betrothed or something? That’s so two hundred years ago. At least you had the decency to book me into a good hotel. How did you manage a room at the Plaza on such short notice?” Using my brown bangs as a shield, I stared at my friend. He grinned wolfishly.

“Who said it was on short notice? I had our room booked six months ago.”

I tripped over my own feet. A startled cry worked its way out of my throat. Mark’s arm slapped against my chest as he caught me. With a low grunt, he hauled me upright. “Careful.”

My face burned. “Sorry.” I drew a deep breath. Killing Mark in Central Park wouldn’t work—not during the daytime. There’d be too many witnesses. “Our room?”

“We’re twenty five. We’re young, healthy adults. There’s no way my ma will believe we’re a couple if we don’t share a room,” he replied. He leveled a scandalous leer in my direction, his gaze taking all of me in.

I flushed. “You have a perfectly nice condo, Mark. I’ve seen it. Why not invite me there instead of booking us a room in one of New York’s more expensive hotels?”

“Wait until you see the room,” Mark said. Then he waggled his eyebrows at me suggestively.

I closed my eyes, stood straight, and once again shoved my hands into my back pockets. No tail. That was a start. I counted to ten. Then I counted to ten again.

When that didn’t calm me down enough, I systematically considered all of Mark’s banking accounts I could probably hack my way into, calculating how much I could siphon off without him noticing. I wouldn’t do it, but the figure made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

When I managed to quell my urge to throttle my friend, I opened my eyes and glared at him. “You reserved the honeymoon suite, didn’t you?”

Got my free copy, looking forward to it! I do a review service now (free honest reviews for indie books) and kind of wish you needed reviews enough to subscribe to it so I could “officially” read Inquisitor. (I’m kidding, the book looks fantastic, I need no other prompting.)

The new site is kind of cool, but quite different from your old one. Will you still post your reviews of services you use (like blog tours, etc)? Those were very useful for me.

    I will be posting reviews and things as I do them! That part of the site won’t be changing 🙂 I am just adding my other hobbies to my website–like making fun of hysterically bad books. 🙂

    You can officially read Inquisitor if you’d like. As a reviewer myself, I totally get that. Feel free to take aim at any one of my titles. If you’re looking for a book that’s newer or not on promotion, you can email me! (rj @ should reach me — new addy just for the website!)

Sorry for the self-promotion, but check out my review policy at I do free honest reviews of indie and self-published books. If you have a book that needs some attention I’d be thrilled to add it to my queue. In the meantime I’ll be adding Inquisitor for pure enjoyment. 🙂

    RJBlain says March 2, 2015

    Absolutely no problem! I’d say your self-promotion was quite solicited. 🙂

    I think my Witch & Wolf novels are the only ones you’d be interested in as they have a lot of Suspense/Thriller with the magic and urban fantasy thrown in. The rest of my novels are the pure fantasy… but I will be releasing some science fiction novels this year that might be up your alley! 🙂
