It's my birthday today, and for some reason, I thought it'd be a great idea to release not one, but two books today. Yeah, I'm crazy. Happy book birthday, Karma & Shadowed Flame! Both books are available for $3.99 over at Amazon. If you want an epub version, please email me with a copy of your receipt to blain . rj @ gmail . com (remove the spaces!)
Karma Johnson has spent her entire adult life working to become a member of FBI's Child Abduction Rapid Deployment team. She's earned her transfer to CARD, but when she's caught up in the kidnapping of an infant from a festival, she learns what it's like to be the victim. Pretending she's a teen keeps her alive while trying to get herself and the baby to safety.
But the kidnapping only scratches at the surface of a far more nefarious scheme, one that will test Karma's skills, her patience, her sanity, and her beliefs.
Matia Evans has it all, except for one thing: she can’t see color. With an adopted family who loves her, a company she helps her father run, and more prospects than she knows what to do with, she’s in no place to complain that her world is limited to shades of gray, black, and white.
Her inability to perceive color isn't the only strange thing about her: all souls have shadows, and she can see them. Unfortunately, there are humans who are worse than monsters. Worse, there are real monsters in the world, and they view humans as prey or as mates.
If Matia doesn’t want to become a victim, a pawn, or a trophy bride of the supernatural, she must use every bit of her strength and cunning. Her freedom and survival depend on embracing the darkest parts of her soul, but if she does, she risks becoming the newest—and most dangerous—monster of all.
This is how I party. There are also a few other titles free today, so hit one of the links and grab them if you don't already have them! Happy birthday to everybody!
Finally, the facebook party beings at 12 EST / 9 PST, and will run until 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST. Come along at any time during the day, participate in games and discussions, and get a chance to win a prize or ten! 🙂
For one final bit of business: I have two really long short stories going out with the newsletter tonight or tomorrow AM. One features Frank, one of Richard's pack mates and best friend. The other features Dustin, the mouthy water witch from Beneath a Blood Moon.
You don't want to miss these, but there's only one way to get them right now. Sign up for my newsletter, and when it is sent, it will include a link so you can download both stories in the file type of your choice. (They'll also be copypasted right into the newsletter, but since they're *so* long…)
Thanks so much for all your support over the years, everyone! You're the best.
