Death Days is Now Available!

Death Days is Now Available!

Are you ready to raise the dead?

Hello lovely readers, I just wanted to pop into your inbox and let you know that my latest novel DEATH DAYS is now live! If you already pre-ordered a copy then you will be able to download it to your kindle. If you didn’t preorder but are interested in checking it out (trust me it’s chock full of all sorts of paranormal creepy crawlies and Men With Feelings TM) then you can pick up a copy at Amazon or directly from the publisher NineStar Press.

As always, I hope you have a blast reading it and keep your eyes peeled this fall for the third and final book in the Profane Series!

Blurb

By day, Professor Nicholas Littman works as an itinerant professor at a small college in the Pacific Northwest. He teaches seminars on mythology and the intersections of folklore and magic in the ancient world. By night, he’s the local necromancer, a rare magical talent that has left him alienated from other practitioners.

All Nick wants from life is to be left alone to run his magical experiments and teach kids the historical context of magic without anyone being the wiser. Unfortunately, his family is sworn to sit on the council of the Order of the Green Book–a group of magicians dating back to the Crusades–and they aren’t willing to take Nick’s no for an answer.

As though that wasn’t bad enough, a coven of Night Women has arrived in town, warning Nick that there are wolves at his door he had better take care of. But what can one necromancer do when every natural and supernatural card seems stacked against him?

Death Days is coming August 6th!

Death Days is coming August 6th!

Hello my lovelies, I’m coming to you today with some super rad news: my latest novel–an M/M paranormal romp through the suburban woods of the Pacific Northwest–is available for preorder! It will be available in print and ebook via NineStar Press on August 6th.

This novel was a passion project I wrote last summer and effectionately referred to as oly!necro!prof on my twitter if you follow me there. I wanted to write something new as a little breather between Profane #3 and Blood & Bone #4, something a little bit grimmer, a little darker, and I really wanted to write about a necromancer (you know, sometimes the urge just takes a girl 😉 ).

The result of that summer writing project was Death Days, which was accepted for publication by NineStar Press–a small boutique publisher who specializes in diverse LGBTQIA+ representation in fiction. It’s been an amazing experience working with NineStar on Death Days and I’m so exciting for all of you to read this new book!

New Series?

There has been some question about whether or not Death Days is a standalone or not. Currently, I am planning on it being at LEAST a trilogy, whether or not the rest of the books get picked up by the publisher remains to be seen (I have to write them first! xD) but I can assure you that this is the beginning of a new series that I will be faithfully working on while I write the last installment of The Profane Series.

In the meantime, be sure and check out the Preorder and happy reading!

xoxo, Lia

New Release: It’s Finally Here, Blood & Bone Book 4

New Release: It’s Finally Here, Blood & Bone Book 4

Check out the haunting conclusion to the Blood & Bone Series!

It’s finally here lovely readers, the long awaited sequel to The Symbiotic Law!

Writing the original trilogy was an amazing experience and I knew very shortly after publishing The Symbiotic Law that I had to write a follow-up story delving into the emotional fallout from that novel, but I’ll admit that it took me some time to be in a place where I felt that I *could* tackle that narrative. A Sanguine Solution is the result of several years carefully feeling my way through Ethan Ellison’s tangled emotions and I couldn’t be more pleased with the direction the story took.

Writing A Sanguine Solution this year has truly opened up so many new creative avenues and new plot threads in this universe that I’m excited to continue exploring. And while this will truly be the last book in the Blood & Bone series, I can say for certain that it won’t be the last story about these characters (but I’ll have more to say on that in the coming months ;))

For now, please enjoy Blood & Bone #4: A Sanguine Solution.

Blurb

How do you keep getting up in the morning when you can’t to look at yourself in the mirror?

Having returned to Seattle, Ethan Ellison would say that he’s trying to piece his life back together but who is he kidding? There’s no returning to life as he knew it, not after Ali’s revelation about their parentage. Now, Ethan’s haunted by personal ghosts and plagued by increasingly temperamental magic.

For Patrick Clanahan, returning to work should be easier than dealing with a mate who can’t stand his touch. But there’s nothing easy about a series of murders that all point to vampire activity in a city where there are no vampires. It’s bringing back to mind the murder of his last partner, slain by vampires a year before he met Ethan—as though Pat didn’t have enough to worry about.

Return to the world of Blood & Bone’s alternative supernatural Seattle, where Ethan and Patrick are about to face their darkest inner demons and scratch the lid on a cover-up bigger than either of them.

This novel picks up after the events of the original trilogy as well as Medium Rare (The Profane Series #1) and Vapor Trail (The Profane Series #2).

Available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

ATTN: Book Reviewers (ARCs for B&B4 A Sanguine Solution)

ATTN: Book Reviewers (ARCs for B&B4 A Sanguine Solution)

Hello my lovelies! I wanted to write up a quick life update because things have been a little crazy out here in my neck of the woods and whenever life gets busy it has a habit of affecting book releases.

If you don’t follow me on twitter, I’ll start by saying that I’ve started working as a barista again for the holidays at a very busy starbucks. It’s a great opportunity to work with a lot of really cool people but it did come at a time when I’ve been struggling to balance so many creative projects. I’ve also been participating in NaNoWriMo, vlogging the first half of November, and finishing up edits on B&B #4. As I’ve mentioned here a few times, I’m intending to release Blood & Bone #4: A Sanguine Solution in the very near future. Originally I had hoped it would be out at the end of October but now we’re looking at “before Christmas.”

Since there’s a little bit more of a lead on the release, I thought I would take the opportunity to offer ARCs of B&B4 to interested book reviewers in exchange for an honest review after release. Seeing as this is the fourth book in a series in an extended universe, I do have a short little questionnaire for you to fill out to request an ARC if you’re interested:

Copies should be made available sometime in the next two weeks, so please fill out the form and let me know before then!

A New Blood & Bone Novella is out!

A New Blood & Bone Novella is out!

First, a little Blood & Bone News…

Hello lovely readers. It’s been a while, but I’m here with some exciting news!

Ever since the release of The Symbiotic Law, I knew that I wanted to write one more novel about Ethan and Patrick, but it’s taken me a few years to be ready to continue their story. In the last couple of months I’ve finally turned my attention to writing that novel, which will be titled A Sanguine Solution. It’s not quite ready for the world, but I’m hoping to release it before the end of the year, maybe as early as November!

Now, a gift to you…

To tide you over until A Sanguine Solution, I’ve written a bonus novella, Remainders, set in the Blood & Bone universe.

For awhile now, I’ve wanted to write a story starring Detective Sabira Mallory, and in the course of drafting A Sanguine Solution, I finally realized precisely what story I wanted to tell with her. Remainders grew like wildfire from that epiphany.

Returning to this universe is in many ways like meeting an old friend for coffee, and I’m super excited to share it with you once again.

Available on Amazon

Blurb:

She’s the junior partner, the freshly promoted detective in Major Crimes, but Sabira Mallory has been working her ass off all summer, first with her irritable partner Patrick Clanahan, and later with FBI Special Agent Vector Clanahan. Every way she turns she’s tripping over werewolves, and now that her partner has fled town, Sabira’s in store to meet yet another member of the McClanahan pack: Patrick’s cute sister Grace.

Set in Seattle during The Symbiotic Law, Remainders is a Blood & Bone novella which explores the blossoming friendship between Detective Mallory and Grace Clanahan.

Late June 2012 – Capitol Hill – Lachlan

How was it that the second things started to go okay, reality inevitably intervened in the worst way?

Lachlan struggled to put the words he was hearing into a context that would compute inside his brain. His hand, gripping the cellphone, froze around the little plastic chassis. If the device had been any less well made, it would have cracked.

“I’m sorry, can you say that again?”

The woman—the police officer or the EMT, or whoever it was that the police station had gotten to call him—said the words again and this time they broke through the fog in his head. Lachlan politely thanked her for her time and hung up. He looked at Vector, but he didn’t need to say anything, the werewolf had heard it all with his wolf ears.

“Lachlan,” Vector breathed out in a soft voice.

He shook his head and dropped the phone. It thumped quietly against the thin rug under his feet. He should check it for other calls—texts—something. Surely the moment hadn’t passed without—while he was—

A man had died in Seattle, which was not a unique occurrence. Men killed each other day. People died from natural and unnatural causes. Took their own lives in some cases. This was a big city, filled with hundreds of thousands of people, all of them wading through existence, waiting for that moment for it be snuffed out.

New Release! Coy Trick – A Palouse County Romance 2

New Release! Coy Trick – A Palouse County Romance 2

New Release: Coy Trick!

cold-press-palouse-country-1Hello my lovelies! A few winters ago I wrote a sweet little romance short story set in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington called Cold PressI’ve been meaning to write a follow-up companion short in that same universe–indeed in that same charming small town called Belleville–ever since. A few days ago that sequel short went live, just in time for you to enjoy it as the weather (at least here in Washington) begins to turn dismally cold. While I no longer live in the Palouse, I have a lot of fond memories of the region and it’s always a pleasure to return there, even if just for short snippets of time.

palouse-2-resize-smallCoy Trick picks up not too long after the end of Cold Press and features both new and familiar faces. About a recently divorced literary novelist struggling with his ongoing attraction to the man who helped break up his marriage, it serves as the next step in this ongoing winter series, and introduces a new touch of magical realism. If that sounds up your ally, be sure and check it out!

Purchase Coy Trick for 99cent or read for free via Kindle Unlimited!

Coming in 2017

For anyone who missed my november wrap-up, I was super pleased to finish writing Vapor Trail, the second book in The Profane Series. Vapor Trail should be hitting shelves sometime near the end of January 2017 or early February, and I’ll be posting a couple of chapters in January for you to read so keep your eyes peeled!

Also in early 2017 I’ll be releasing a FOURTH book in the Blood & Bone Series, tentatively called A Sanguin Solution. I’m writing this novel right now and it picked up shortly after the end of The Symbiotic Law for those of you curious to see how Ethan Ellison and Pat Clanahan deal with the aftermath of that novel. I’m super happy to be diving back into these two characters and their struggles; it’s a lot like coming home to a good–if somewhat bitchy–old friend 😉

Lots of exciting books will be coming out in 2017. I’m excited. For updates on new releases make sure you’re subscribed here or on my mailing list.



Happy winter season to you all!
