Pre-order now at iBooks, Amazon US, Amazon UK Coming soon to Kobo | Barnes & Noble

Welcome to the darker, sexier side of Havenwood Falls that many residents never speak of publicly, but most likely enjoy in secret. Venture into the SIN MC, the VIP rooms of Silk nightclub, and behind other closed doors, where you’ll discover passion, unusual penchants, and just how far some will go for love. Hold on to your panties, because it’s time to ride . . .

What do you do when Death’s hot on your heels for messing with the afterlife order?

Yeah, I’m a smooth guy, generally. But some damned souls escaped the Infernum during my last visit, and now I’m Death’s chew toy. I’ve gotta track and return these supernatural fugitives before they cause more carnage. Easy, right? Except Nyx, a vampire-demon hybrid, is leading these already-corrupt souls astray and turning a secret town upside down during her pursuit for Queendom of the Underworld. Crazy bitches come with crazy ideas.

I arrive in Havenwood Falls in the midst and madness of a Hot Cocoa and Cookie Crawl. I don’t expect to be swallowed up by this mystical town with its own enchantments, luring me in with its hidden beauty. There are secrets much deeper than what appear on the surface. One in particular has sinful legs and silky hair I’m desperate to bury myself into. She’s hooked me like a gullible puppy owner, trapped by those stunning eyes. I’m screwed. Literally.

Sadly, Death is still snapping at my ass, halting my attempts to unravel this beauty’s darkest desires. The Infernum demands Nyx’s soul, amongst the others, to be returned, and I will reap them. I am their courier to Hell.

My name is Shade StormIron, and I am an Angel of Death.

This is a steamy paranormal romance in the Havenwood Falls shared world. A collaborative effort by multiple authors across multiple series all in the paranormal fantasy genre, Havenwood Falls allows readers to discover new authors and stories to fall in love with.

Sniper Wanted:1 is OUT today!

It feels like it has been an eternity since I did a book release. But, today’s the day that all changes. Book 1 of the Sniper Wanted serial is out now, and this is a continuation in the WANTED series I started a few years back with Alpha Wanted. This is a standalone that can be read separate to Alpha Wanted, but if you like the characters and want more, feel free to check out where it all began, especially when book 1 in that series is free. You can find it at amazon, iBooks, Kobo, B&N and Smashwords.

 

ONE BOMB

The Paranormal Division of the Secret Intelligence Service (P.D.S.I.S.) are alerted to troubling news. London’s become a target for supernatural warfare. Humans are collateral damage.

ONE TERRORIST GROUP

SuperNom are calling for followers. Propaganda videos claim the government’s agency is a dictatorship, not a service dedicated to protecting the supernatural. They’re terminating P.D.S.I.S. and all its believers. Now they’re advertising for a sniper.

ONE UNDERCOVER AGENT

Director Storm puts Hunter on the case, an elite werewolf soldier who specialises in snipers. Infiltrating the group won’t come easy. He’ll be tested, forced to compete against other candidates until one shifter remains.

ONE CONFLICT

Chopper’s a fighter at the forefront of SuperNom’s affairs. Her loyalty to the cause is unquestionable, even when a new candidate catches her eye. But her once simple role has now become complicated, even if she won’t admit it to herself.

ONE ENDING.

Inspiration; It’s not all that.

From several observations, I know how much we wish, hope and strive to find inspiration to help us in our writing. How often do you stare at a blank page or screen begging for something to jump out at you and reignite your passion for words? When we’re stuck, we search the web. Check out pinterest. Listen to music. Explore the local coffee shop as though we’re expecting to step into a new dimension where the writing bug is abundant. We’re desperate for anything that can help give us a fresh perspective, a renewed vigor for our love child.

It’s so strange that autumn is so beautiful; yet everything is dying.
William Shakespeare

However, relying on inspiration to write, and using its absence as an excuse not to, has only one end goal.

Failure.

If you rely on that often-hidden muse, you’ll have no productivity and that novel you’ve been desperate to write will remain as an unfinished document gathering dust. Despite the stigma that this is a hobby, if you’re truly serious about your career, then writing is a business. You have to treat it like one. And that means arranging a schedule like every other businessperson. Doesn’t matter that you’re working from home, or paying yourself. If you want to be a success, you have to be disciplined. If you decide you don’t want to write today, then you won’t get paid. It’s simple maths. 1 – 1 = 0. Can you afford to live like this?

Why let something as fallible as inspiration rule over whether you make a career of this or not? It’s cliched and boring to hear that the more you write the better, and easier, it becomes, but it’s true. The same with any muscle in the body, if you work at it, you’re going to become stronger. Finding motivation in art, music, nature, books, online etc. is great, but don’t give it so much credence that without it you’re crippled. It’s a bonus, not a necessity.

Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.
Louis L’Amour

Storytelling Forms: For or Against?

Bibliobibuli
(n) Those who read too much
Coined by H.L. Menken in 1957: There are people who read too much, bibliobibuli. I know some who are constantly drunk on books, as other men are drunk on whiskey or religion. They wander through this most diverting and stimulating of worlds in a haze, seeing nothing and hearing nothing.

As readers we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to genres, and now with the revolution of eBooks, we’re privy to all sorts of forms at the push of a button. Whether it’s the short story, novella, full-length novel, or even series and serials. There’s an ideal book to match the mood and time you have.

The beauty of writing is that there’s no limitation on imagination. So why should storytelling be subjected to something as constrictive as word count?

As a writer, I let my characters dictate how much they have to say, it’s their journey not mine. Because of this, I’ve written a series of full-length novels, a 3-part serial and even a bunch of short stories that come together with the same theme. I’ve recently been polishing a novella I’m submitting for my Master’s degree, and come next week, I’m going to be starting on the longest novel I’ll have written to date.

It’s all incredibly exciting because there’s so much room for creativity. If I bound myself with the ties of a mundane routine, sticking to the same style, form, genre, even the type of hero/heroine, there’d be no joy and life in what I write. The characters would be as dead as I’d feel. And you, the reader, would be throwing the trash back at me for wasting your time.

I know that there’s a lot of controversy when it comes to the length of a book. Some people love the episodic serials, they’re great for commuters with limited spare time, or for those that like to consume its entirety before bed. Others complain they’re not getting their money’s worth, but in this age of eBooks the pricing has no limit. And it’s all relative. How do you base the amount you’re willing to pay for an eBook? Is it on length? Quality? The author? Would you consider the daily cup of coffee you buy from the local chain-store is worth more than the story you pondered purchasing?

I love to read. And like my characters, I don’t confine myself to just the one genre, form, and size. Having the choice is what makes it enjoyable. Do you agree? Or would you rather we took a step back and stuck to more traditional rules?

You can make anything by writing.
– C.S. Lewis
