Book Five Publication Date: 3/3/14!

Seeing how life has kept me pretty busy lately, I apologize for the lateness of the publication for the book due out in January! I had some extra editing to do on it, it is substantially bigger than the other books, so it took longer to finish. Anyhow, I know you will all really love it! It is one of my favorites so far!  Thank you friends and fans! I’ll post links once it’s up on Amazon, on 3/3/14!

Betrayal of Weakness, Book Five of The Legends of Sangue coming soon!

Betrayal of Weakness, Book Five of The Legends of Sangue coming soon!

BOWCover

Almost thirty-six years after the tragedy of Queen Tancia Catallino’s brutal murder leaves the royal line and rural community of Sangue, Montana lost and hopeless. The Elemental Circle missing a sorceress on the brink of destruction, impending disaster and mass death, the only person prophesized to find her has gone missing. The tiny town of the underworld suddenly comes to light in the normal mortal world and everything begins to fall apart, with no closure to the cherished Queen’s death and the royal line of Sangue open to enemy attack, all sorceric protection failing with the impending Elemental Circle’s demise, nobody knows what to do.

 A surprise visit from the past brings precious new, fragile hope to Sangue, just as the town is attacked and the destruction of the world is all but imminent. It’s anyone’s game, a dangerous game that must be played with utmost caution. Rules have to be broken in the worst ways and old grievances aired, enemies reunited as allies with Sangue and the impossible accomplished before a single chance of survival can be obtained. But can everyone work together peacefully in time to keep tragedy from repeating itself?

Better yet, will the ancient prophecies of Sangue’s survival be fulfilled, the true leader found before all is destroyed and the harrowing sacrifices of the past mean nothing?

Can Sangue’s path to peace finally be restored?

The answer lies within the most shocking of discoveries. And somebody knew the answer all along.

They just haven’t realized it yet.

“Partners In Crime”- Episode 2 (Part Two) (My Day In A Short Noir)

2noirlady2

She’d just stepped inside, after leaning on the brick wall, ascertaining the safety of her mission. She concluded that there was none to be had and she continued on anyway. She knew she was on the eight-ball, but an ace never gives up and she never blows off.

She had just run into the Dog, and when I say Dog, I mean just that. They had just made eye contact and she knew instantly what he wanted. He wanted… to play.

We’ll call him Gibbs.

Gibbs was the sort of Dog you had to watch out for, a kind of Bruno we’ll say. Tough guy. Sure he acted playful, jumping around and having a grand ol’ time. But she wasn’t fooled. He was the kind of Dog who’d wag his tail for any regular Joe or Jane who came around.

2noirmanoutdoors

Yet she couldn’t deny, there was just something about this little guy. Something that drew her to him, something… dangerous. It may have had something to do with the strange puddle in the corner, but as soon as she leashed him up and sent him running, he went, if you know what I mean.

She already knew he was the kind of bruno who cleaned up after himself, if you catch my drift, but it wasn’t until the sly little guy tried to bring his dirty business back inside that she stepped down her fancy toe shoes and said, “Nuh-uh, buster. You ain’t bringin’ that back in here.”

Too bad she’d already been fooled and tried to take it out of his mouth, thinking it was just another lump of dirt.

2noirsurprise

This guy was sly. Gibbs had it written all over him. Cute as a button, suave, the kind of charming mutt a lady could fall for, if she wasn’t careful. She knew she needed a break. So she steps out to put on her disguise, stand on the bridge in the rain, overlooking the river. This is how she does her best thinking. In silhouette, dressed as a man, leaning against a lamppost. Under thunderclouds.

2noirmsnlsmp2

She knew she had a decision to make. She was too far in, too deep in her disguise and her lies to back out now. There were mysteries to solve, but she couldn’t turn her back on him. What kind of Dog was Gibbs that could act all playful one moment, and turn around and bump off a Pooh Bear Slipper without remorse? Sure it was in an unprovoked fit of passion, the urge to play triumphed over his self-control and an innocent Pooh paid the price. But she couldn’t risk bringing him in, she couldn’t risk being… discovered.

Her only other option was to work with him.

The song and dance begins. Before she knows it, she and Gibbs are running together, hot on the trail.

Or should I say, hot on the “tail”

Ha. Ha.

New Characters= Complicated Fun!!

MOHM

It’s been awhile since I’ve talked in any kind of detail regarding my novels. I cannot tell you why, I just haven’t. Now I want to (funny how life works out that way.)

So, my two newest characters (First Captain Aida Mancini and Captain Mario Baldovino) were introduced to my series in 2009 (when I began the rewrites of the whole series, starting with book 1, Blood of Darkness, which was published in April of 2012) I made so many changes from the original books that I found gaps that I needed to fill in, and Aida and Baldovino did so perfectly. That is probably the most grateful change I have needed to make, I love Aida and Baldovino and they have become important aspects to the series.

BUT, it has made things slightly complicated. Being that they did not come into my series until 2009, and I finished with the original copy of book 11 in 2008 (remember, I am rewriting them all). That leaves 11 books they had no parts in. At first, Baldovino was a fill-in character who has become a very integral sub-character, and Aida was originally intended to have a big part in books one and three, and fade from there. I feel almost blasphemous saying so, Aida is such a dear part of the series now. But that leaves me with 11 books I need to change.

How much fun is that??? TONS.

It’s complicated, but it’s fun. And I can’t help but feel these characters were missing from the very beginning. Aida’s quirky bad-ass attitude adding comedic value, Baldovino’s brash hardcore personality adding its own form of comedy as it becomes clear since book 3 just how much he hates the Werewolves.

And the more I write, the more it becomes so obvious that they belong, just as importantly as all my other characters. From the first character I created in 1999 (Alisha) to the turning point in 2002 when I decided Otztal would be my main character, to now, when book four is almost entirely reconstructed and in its final edit before publication, with 9 more books (at least) in the works just waiting to be rewritten and published… It’s been an incredible journey that continues in complicated, fun and amazing ways.

I can’t wait to see how the series continues as I continue to mold it and form it and watch it grow, and be grateful that I can share this experience with all of you 🙂 Thank you, my dedicated fans and readers!

Let The Silence Commence!

Well, upon request- or rather, quest– for opinion (regarding when you all would like to see me publish book 3, the 13th or 31st) I have received one, and it was a unanimous….

13th!!!

So that I shall do,

That…   I shall do.

Anyway, that gives me less than a week to finish editing (I’m halfway done with the FINAL edit, hip hip hooray!) and it shall be available for purchase on 13th, March, 2013!!!

I’m already beginning the edit/rewrites on book four, and having a blast doing it!
