Barely knowing her own name, Charlemaine begins having horrible visions of impeding doom, and she's labeled an enemy of Jensen's guild. She doesn't trust she isn't being used as bait to bring down the group of powerful wizards, but she doesn't want to leave Jensen.

~*New Paranormal Releases for Tuesday September 25th 2012 *~

 She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever. Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone. Her father was right. The monsters are real. To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

When she wakes up in unfamiliar surroundings, Skye knows something terrible has happened to her. It's not until she hears Asher, the dark, rebellious angel she fell in love with, that the memories come flooding back. She tries to put the past behind her, but she knows she'll be forever haunted by the ruthless betrayal that almost took her life.
Skye returns home, but with the knowledge of who she really is, nothing can ever be the same. As she tests the limits of her newfound powers, Skye discovers that she's capable of far more than anyone could have imagined. Both the Order and the Rebellion want her for their side as war between the factions looms. She can't forget the terrifying truth she now knows about the Order, but something holds her back from embracing the Rebellion.

After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes to solve, but she soon discovers they’re in over their heads with his past. Over their heads with passion, too...

Dred Shadowins already has his hands full with cursed objects, possessed nuns, and dreams where Merlin makes him pay for taking his name in vain by relating his sexcapades with Nimue. But by the end of the mission, he's convinced his most difficult challenge is the hero's cape Middy's draped over his shoulders. Because he wants nothing more than to give her the one thing he may not be capable of providing: Happily Ever After.

Can the living coexist with the living dead? That’s the question that has New Victorian society fiercely divided ever since the mysterious plague known as “The Laz” hit the city of New London and turned thousands into walking corpses. But while some of these zombies are mindless monsters, hungry for human flesh, others can still think, speak, reason, and control their ravenous new appetites. Just ask Nora Dearly, the young lady of means who was nearly kidnapped by a band of sinister zombies but valiantly rescued by a dashing young man . . . of the dead variety. Nora and her savior, the young zombie soldier Bram Griswold, fell hopelessly in love. But others feel only fear and loathing for the reanimated dead. Now, as tensions grow between pro- and anti-zombie factions, battle lines are being drawn in the streets. And though Bram is no longer in the New Victorian army, he and his ex-commando zombie comrades are determined to help keep the peace. That means taking a dangerous stand between The Changed, a radical group of sentient zombies fighting for survival, and The Murder, a masked squad of urban guerrillas hellbent on destroying the living dead. But zombies aren’t the only ones in danger: Their living allies are also in The Murder’s crosshairs, and for one vengeful zealot, Nora Dearly is the number one target. As paranoia, prejudice, and terrorist attacks threaten to plunge the city into full-scale war, Nora’s scientist father and his team continue their desperate race to unlock the secrets of “The Laz” and find a cure. But their efforts may be doomed when a mysterious zombie appears bearing an entirely new strain of the illness—and the nation of New Victoria braces for a new wave of the apocalypse. Lia Habel’s spellbinding, suspenseful sequel to Dearly, Departed takes her imaginative mash-up of period romance, futuristic thriller, and zombie drama to a whole new level of innovative and irresistible storytelling.

But trying to rescue his beautiful Ary from captivity is one wild risk no man should take. Luckily, Nick Delgado is no ordinary man.

Ary is a born healer who has devoted her life to the tribe—and her heart to Nick. But when the fierce and sadistic Sabar turns his jaguar eyes upon her, Ary becomes the unwilling pawn in a deadly game of shifting alliances. One man wants to use her talents to enslave humanity. The other wants to free her from their natural enemy. If Nick hopes to save Ary, he must unleash the beast within—and fight for the woman he loves…

In a community kept hidden, the Enforcers are an elite group of vampires sworn to serve and protect their kind—and follow the Laws of the Blood… As one of Chicago’s vampire hunters, Ivy Bailey is responsible for keeping the city’s human residents safe—a job that becomes infinitely harder when someone starts committing gruesome acts of magical murder. But what Ivy doesn’t realize is that she is a hunter being hunted… Vampire Enforcer Christopher Bell is in Chicago to investigate rumors of a revolution, but when he comes across Ivy being followed through dark streets, what he finds is a ghost from his past. Over a century ago, Christopher fought the vicious London serial killer Jack the Ripper—and won. But now, the Ripper’s tainted soul is back—on the hunt once more. Ivy insists she doesn’t need protection—especially from a vampire Enforcer. But soon, Christopher finds himself in the middle of a fight between demons and mortals, watching over the frustrating woman who has managed to stir his undead heart….

Armageddon is over. The demons won. And yet somehow…the world has continued. Survivors worship patron demons under a draconian system of tributes and rules. These laws keep the demons from warring among themselves, and the world from slipping back into chaos. Noon Onyx grew up on the banks of the river Lethe, the daughter of a prominent politician, and a descendant of Lucifer’s warlords. Noon has a secret: She was born with waning magic, the dark, destructive, fiery power that is used to control demons and maintain the delicate peace among them. But a woman with waning magic is unheard of, and some would consider her an abomination. Noon is summoned to attend St. Lucifer’s, a school of demon law. She must decide whether to declare her powers there…or to attempt to continue hiding them, knowing the price for doing so may be death. And once she meets the forbiddingly powerful Ari Carmine—who suspects Noon is harboring magic as deadly as his own—Noon realizes there may be more at stake than just her life.

Farran de Clare, loyal member of the cursed Knights Templar, wants nothing to do with predestined mates. Even the Almighty won’t turn him into a fool again—he’d rather sacrifice his soul. Yet in the scientist Noelle Keane, a devout atheist, Farran meets the seraph designed for him. Ordered by the archangel Gabriel to protect Noelle, the possessor of a sacred relic that could give Azazel incredible power, Farran swears to do his duty—but in name only. Fighting an attraction that grows with each day, he’s determined that he’ll never pledge himself to her. As they war over her future, their mutual passion ignites a conflict far more damning. But before Noelle will agree to eternity with him, she demands the ultimate sacrifice—his heart.

Parker Adams has always done what’s expected of her . . . until a double agent with nothing to lose ignites a passion she doesn’t dare give in to. Mission Agent Simon Wells is everything Parker Adams has been trained to fight: manipulator, murderer, spy . . . witch. But for her, what makes Simon most dangerous is his mesmerizing sexual magnetism, powerful enough to tempt even the famed ice queen of the Mission. Though she knows better, each encounter with the deceptive agent leaves her craving more. Simon isn’t a man to let go of what’s his, and his pursuit forces Parker, a woman he can’t get out from under his skin, to make a stand that could destroy her. If they can work together, they might survive the politics that has enslaved their devastated world—or fall victim to the pitfalls of desperation, bone-deep mistrust, and a hunger that threatens to consume them.

They say justice is blind. But Justine isn’t. Justine (Tina) Clancy is just an ordinary law student with a faulty arrest record, a part-time job in Baltimore’s radioactive Zone, and a family secret so bizarre even she doesn’t believe it. That is, until in a fit of fury she damns her boyfriend to hell—and it’s exactly where he ends up. Much to her surprise, Tina is apparently one of Saturn’s daughters, with the power to wield vigilante justice. But poor Max didn’t deserve to go up in flames, even if he did almost run her over with her own car. Tina’s convinced someone cut the brakes—and now a relentless nemesis is stalking her through the Zone’s back alleys, where buildings glow, statues move, and chemical waste exposure comes with interesting consequences. Tina’s usually a loner, but now she needs a posse like no other: a shape-shifting kitten, an invisible thief, a biker gang, a snake-charming private detective, a well-meaning cop, and her sleazy, sexy boss. But in between freeing Max from hell, saving her own neck, and solving a mystery that threatens the Zone and her newfound friends, how is she ever going to study for finals?

Welcome, welcome, welcome to BR Kingsolver.  She is here to tell us a little about herself and share her books with us.  Don't forget to enter to win her book and be sure to stop back by October 1st when we get to meet one of her characters.

Welcome, can you tell us a little about yourself how long you've been writing? 
I grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s high desert in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I hiked, camped, and skied. Santa Fe is a city of the arts, with many famous artists and authors. I took a long time to graduate university, working in a lot of different jobs.

I worked as a newspaper editor for five years and I’ve been writing and editing in the business world for a long time. I tried to write a science fiction novel when I was fifteen, but gave up because it was so bad. I didn’t try to write fiction again until about a year ago.

How do you balance between your personal life and your writing?
It’s difficult. I have to make time to write, mainly in the evenings and on weekends. As an independent author, I spend so much time trying to promote my books that it seriously cuts into my writing time.

Other than writing, what are some of your passions in life?
I enjoy the outdoors, reading, and travel. One of the things I’m hoping to do is travel more in Europe. I just love to see new places, especially those with a lot of history.

Envision trading places with one of your characters in your books, who would it be and why?
It would have to be Brenna, of course. Who wouldn’t want to be fabulously wealthy, powerful and rich? But I wouldn’t want to sacrifice my privacy and have to look over my shoulder all the time because people were trying to kill me.

What surprised you the most about the writing/publishing process? 
A lot of things surprised me. How easily the story flowed was a surprise. The writing was really easy. The next thing that surprised me was the amount of criticism. That was followed by how difficult it is to revise a novel to make it readable. I’m smiling at my naivetĂ© on that one. The biggest surprise though was how much work goes into promoting my book. 

Where does your inspiration for a new book come from?
I’ve always had an active imagination. I envision new characters and situations easily. The problem comes when you try to develop a story for those characters. The books I’ve published so far are a single idea and story, and the next book is a continuation of it. But I have a couple of new characters and ideas I want to explore and I’ve outlined some new stories for when I finish with Brenna.

What, in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?
I think the first thing is a good story. If you don’t have a story that captures a reader’s imagination then nothing else matters, and the author has to tell that story in an interesting manner. The second most important thing is strong, well-developed characters that the reader considers interesting. I don’t think the reader necessarily needs to identify with and of the characters, and they may not even like them, but they have to be interested in what happens to them. The third thing is mechanics. I don’t care what anyone says, spelling, grammar, punctuation and word choice all matter. It’s jarring to trip over mechanical errors and it takes the reader out of the story. 

Who do you ask to read your work and give their opinion? From those opinions what helps you the most and how do you keep from picking it apart?
I have a critique group that I work with, other authors, and they help me a lot. Some of them act as beta readers for the finished drafts. I also have several friends who are professional editors who are willing to read my work. When the same criticism comes from multiple people, you have to pay attention to it. Each of my books has been through multiple reads from at least five different people before I submit it for final edits.

Can you share a little of your current work with us?
I’ve published the first two books in the Telepathic Clans, the story of Brenna O’Donnell. Brenna is called a succubus, but that’s a bit of a misnomer. In my world, a goddess grants telepathic gifts to the people who worship her. One of those gifts is granted to her priestesses to accept men’s life energy as an act of devotion.

Brenna is a wilder, an orphan who didn’t grow up knowing about other telepaths. When she reaches adulthood and begins trying to have relations with men, this gift that she can’t control makes things problematic. When she does find her family, things get complicated because someone is hunting and killing women with the succubus gift. 

In Twitter fashion use 140 characters or less, sum up The Succubus Gift for us.
I like what one reviewer said:
“The initial synopsis struck me as interesting, but it didn’t prepare me for the utterly heart stopping onslaught of sex, violence and paranormal abilities out the wazoo.” 

Will we be seeing a following book to this story? 
The sequel, Succubus Unleashed, is already available at all eBook retail locations. The third book is currently in revision and I hope to publish it this fall.


 Book 1 of the Telepathic Clans Saga. 

The history of the Clans, called the Sidhe by the Irish, stretches back to antiquity. The Goddess blesses Her people with 25 Telepathic Gifts. In addition to Telepathy, the Gifts include command over Air and Fire, Telekinesis and Teleportation. In over 2,500 years, She has never bestowed more than 15 Gifts on a single person.

Brenna Morgan was orphaned at eight when her parents were killed in a plane crash. Through one foster home after another, she carried the ornate, carved wooden box her mother had left with her, keeping it always a secret. Then one night she stumbles over a man who claims her as family.

Brenna’s life isn’t the same after she discovers her unusual and mysterious heritage. In addition to being a telepath, Brenna learns she has the Succubus Gift. 

That’s just the beginning of her problems. Someone is stalking her. Then there’s the tall, dangerous woman who shadows her and hints a Goddess has linked them. And what is she going to do with a handsome, charismatic, womanizing man she knows she should avoid? 

Some days a girl just wants to pull the covers over her head and stay in bed -- with a willing young man of course.

Urban Fantasy with a dash of romance. The Succubus Gift is a completely different take on the succubus myth. Beautiful women and hot men in a world with a hidden telepathic subculture.

The Succubus Gift
Chapter 1

We have been burned at the stake, locked up in asylums, drugged into a stupor. We are secretive for our own protection. - Seamus O’Donnell

She noticed the young man immediately when he walked past her, head down and in a hurry, but not only because he was so good looking. He had no thoughts, no mental activity, and that grabbed her attention in a way nothing else could have.

Following him, she stepped into a shop doorway when he stopped and looked around. She didn’t need to keep him in sight. She could feel his emotions, so strange coming from someone with no thoughts she could read, different than all the other people on the streets. Checking her mental shields to make sure they were as tight as she could make them, she followed him around a corner. He didn’t look back, seemingly not aware she was there.

Moving closer as he turned another corner into an alley, she stopped when he hesitated at the other end. He looked about before stepping out onto the street, but he never looked back. Realizing he couldn’t feel her, she closed the distance between them.

Scanning the area with her mind, she discovered two other men, farther away, who also were mentally shielded. Their emotions were completely different than his, and she shivered at the malice radiating from them. Every time the first man changed direction, the others soon followed. Although they couldn’t see each other, it was almost as though they could feel each other, just as she could feel them. Through the maze of streets in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor area, they danced across the city in the summer twilight.

He walked into a bar just a block off the water. She knew it had entrances on two different streets, and rather than follow him, she walked to the corner, out into the street, and stood in front of one of the unusual old triangular houses in this part of town. From her vantage point she could see both entrances.

Coming out the other side, he walked in the opposite direction, away from the harbor. He was doubling back, hoping to lose his pursuers, but they weren’t tracking him by sight or sound. She watched a man hesitate in front of the door the young man had used to enter the bar, stop, and then turn around.

He was walking faster now and she was forced to break into a run to keep up with him. He stopped in a small park, in a dark area near a building, turning and waiting for her.

“Why are you following me?” he asked as she approached him. He was tall with brown hair and blue eyes in his early twenties.

“Those men are following you. Do they want to hurt you?” she asked, looking up at him. “They don’t feel the same as you do.” His blue eyes widened.
“They’re coming. They can feel you.”

“I can’t feel you, and I doubt they can either,” he answered with a puzzled tone in his voice. “You’re an O’Neill.” He took a step toward her. “Who the hell are you?”

She felt the other men at the edge of the park. “Why are you afraid? Are they going to hurt you?”

 “I don’t know. They might try,” he answered, smiling nervously.

She covered him in her shield and saw his fists clench as the other men approached. The sense of menace radiating from them increased as they drew closer, moving stealthily. In the darkness, she couldn’t see them clearly. Large men, even bigger than the young man she was following, they had a rough look. One passed within only a few feet. He turned and looked directly at them, but continued on. She could see he held a pistol close to his body.

 “Holy Mary,” the young man breathed when they were well gone.

She stepped close to him, out of the shadow, and looked up at his face. It was the first time he could see her clearly. His eyes widened in shocked surprise.

“Who are you?” she asked. “What are you? Do you know what I am?”

He stared at her pale face wreathed in black hair. His mouth opened, then closed. He swallowed and shook his head.

Well did that wet your whistle???  Here is an added bonus:
Here is the Link to first 3 chapters in PDF format

Book 2 of the Telepathic Clans Saga, the sequel to the multiple 5-star reviewed The Succubus Gift.

Released June 24, 2012
and is available on Smashwords, Amazon, Apple and Barnes and Noble


It's not easy being a succubus.

Brenna O'Donnell and Rebecca Healy continue their integration into the Clan. Learning more about their Gifts and always seeking someone who will love them. After a crash course in learning about her genetic heritage, Brenna O'Donnell has discovered what it really means to be a succubus and has learned to embrace her strange Gift. Her major concern is whether Collin will accept her for what she is. As she adjusts to telepathic society, others in the Clan have plans that will strip the last of her freedom. 

The social season is around the corner, including events that Brenna never imagined in her wildest dreams. The succubi, representatives of the Goddess on earth, are at the center of an ancient worship. And if a girl is going to be the center of attention, then obviously she needs a new dress.

Between the romance and glistening balls of the Clan's social events, Brenna and Rebecca discover life is not secure. Telepaths from other Clans are kidnapping young girls and selling them into slavery.

A continuation of what one reviewer called an, "... utterly heart stopping onslaught of sex, violence and paranormal abilities ..."
