Hellbent To Do The Devil’s Business

Have a busy day today, doing that editing thing but I definitely wanted to boost the signal on the releases of two good friends of mine.

First up, Devil’s Business, the 4th Book in the Black London series by my girl Caitlin Kittredge is out now.


Pete Caldecott did everything she could to save Jack from Hell, even reigning in the dark machinations of the Morrigan to help bring him home. Still, Black London has not welcomed Jack back with open arms. . . So when a friend in Los Angeles asks for help tracking a sorcerous serial killer, Pete and Jack decide a change of scenery couldn’t hurt. . .

But the shadow side of the City of Angels turns out to be more treacherous than they ever imagined. Together, Pete and Jack must navigate a landscape teeming with hostile magic-users— and fight an unknown enemy. When their investigation leads to a confrontation with the demon Belial, Jack learns that he wasn’t the only thing to escape from Hell. Now it’s up to him and Pete to track and eliminate an evil older than the Black itself—before it turns L.A. into Hell on Earth. And destroys life as they know it back at home…

Yeah, you’re gonna want to get this book like yesterday. More information about the novel can be found here.

Next up is Hellbent by my partner in crime Cherie Priest. Book #2 in the Cheshire Red Reports, the novel releases on Tuesday Sept. 6.



Vampire thief Raylene Pendle doesn’t need more complications in her life. Her Seattle home is already overrun by a band of misfits, including Ian Stott, a blind vampire, and Adrian deJesus, an ex-Navy SEAL/drag queen. But Raylene still can’t resist an old pal’s request: seek out and steal a bizarre set of artifacts. Also on the hunt is a brilliant but certifiably crazy sorceress determined to stomp anyone who gets in her way. But Raylene’s biggest problem is that the death of Ian’s vaunted patriarch appears to have made him the next target of some blood-sucking sociopaths.  Now Raylene must snatch up the potent relics, solve a murder, and keep Ian safe—all while fending off a psychotic sorceress. But at least she won’t be alone. A girl could do a lot worse for a partner than an ass-kicking drag queen—right?

With the upcoming release, Priest has goodies to share and is kicking off a very special giveaway called Operation: Negotiable Handbasket. To enter, all it takes is an act of kindness and you being an awesome you.

Ladies, congratulations on your success. I can’t wait to read your books. Now if you all will excuse me, I have some writing to do and some Kindle orders to make.
