Happy Book Birthday to #CORNERED w/ #Giveaway

Available NOW (squeeeeee!) …

CORNERED

And the blurb:

Daniel Larsen is playing a dangerous game, and he doesn’t even know it.

 A two-wheeled speedster. A little redhead in a bar. Evenings spent away from his pack. Innocent enough for most, but for Danny, the combination leads down a path of destruction and straight to a hell he doesn’t even see coming.

Entangled in a nightmare that started with his own brother and the cat he brought into their home, Dan’s driving himself toward a solitary existence—except for the curvaceous Olivia Fanella. Seduced by his new companion, and happy to ignore the divide growing between himself and the pack, Danny is oblivious to the trap being laid out for him.

Before long, Danny’s integrity gets questioned. His loyalty gets questioned. Hell, he even questions himself.

On top of that, just when he believes life might be going a little better, he gets served the roughest shot he could never have imagined—not even in his worst nightmares—and Danny has no idea how to come back from a hit like that.

**Cornered contains scenes that some readers might find upsetting**

 CORNERED is available NOW.

Bullet Blog Tour: On Leon Grey and … Dating?

In case you guys don’t already know, I kind of have a soft spot for Leon Grey. So when I see him making mad decisions regarding the wrong women (in my opinion, anyway), then a girl’s going to feel like she needs to step in. And just to appease me, good ole Jonathan Lister has created a list–a pros and cons list O_o–for the good or bad in the idea of Leon’s errant ways and bad choices. Ha!

It’s all yours:

Althea Backlund has her eye (teeth) on Leon Gray. The lone wolf knows he should stay away from her, but can he really fend off an Alpha while Demos City is under siege? Leon may need help deciding, so here’s a mental checklist of the pros and cons. Avoiding Althea, or giving in to her whims, could be the most resonating event in the Demos City Series.

5. An Alpha Gets What She Wants

No leader, female or male, rises to their position within a pack through bloodless maneuvers. Althea understands power, and how to go after her goals with singular vision. If Leon is her target, then she may keep firing until she hits it. That kind of persistent artillery could cause a significant amount of collateral damage.

4. Leon isn’t Relationship Friendly

Our werewolf protagonist isn’t just a single man about town–he’s a widower. Gray’s wife vanished a number of years ago. The scars of her abandonment make opening up a tad difficult, and as much as he might want to try again, there’s the latent fear of a repeat ditching. Even men who morph into bestial killing machines don’t like to get their feelers hurt…right?

3. *Cough* Impressionable Teen in the Room!

Then there’s Shauna, Leon’s daughter, to consider. Joining up with Backlund leaves her in a precarious situation with her Uncle Nate’s pack, and potentially places her in the crosshairs of a conflict, should she fall on the wrong side of pack lines. In terms of role models, Althea’s no-quarter manner of doing business might not be the best template for a long and healthy life.

2. Don’t Fall in Love with the Cover

Backlund is one attractive lady in charge, but her ultimate desires and plans for her pack remain hidden. Could bringing Leon into the fold be just another stone in a wider plan to control Demos City? Keeping her at bay could be the lone pin in the grenade that is her war plan. Seduction might cloud Leon’s mind temporarily, but he’d better come to his senses before any major decisions get made. Otherwise, he might not be able to walk the consequences back.

1. Does Leon Have a Choice?

For all of Leon’s grousing, he may be the person in the weakest position to choose his fate. Pulled in multiple directions, and caught in the scrum of a war’s exponential growth curve, how can he refuse Backlund if she’s the one offering the least violent path out? Who knew sacrifice could look that good in leather pants.

If you want to know just what has Leon Gray up to his wolf neck in trouble, you’ll need to grab a copy of Bullet: a Demos City Novel. He won’t admit it, but he appreciates your time and effort in doing so.

~~~~~

Yeah, still not convinced I *could* be wrong. Nuh-uh.

And if you’re clueless as to what BULLET might be, exactly (if you’ve been living under a rock, or trekking Antarctica, or something), take a lookie below:

A father’s love doesn’t bend, so what happens when it breaks?

Corruption, dark truths, and a new Alpha mean Leon Gray’s days of running without a pack are over. At least, that’s what everyone but him believes.

He’d rather be helping his teenage daughter navigate the landmine life of a full werewolf, finish out his servitude as bodyguard to a former Demos City reporter and, in all honesty, not be taken advantage of by a beautiful woman who really only wants him for his body—figuratively and metaphorically.

Of course, the only way any of that might happen is if he’s dead. That’s likely given the information the reporter has unearthed and the territorial battles already underway between packs. If only Demos City’s corruption didn’t have such deep roots—older than the bones of the city or any of the werewolves who’ve decided to claim it. A city can only take so many power hungry mongrels invading it at one time, and Leon can only take so much knowing his daughter lives within its boundaries.

War has come to Demos City.

It’s up to Leon to fix … what’s most important to him.

You can, of course, grab your own copy of BULLET at the below places:

And if you’ve still to read CROSSROADS, the first in the great urban fantasy series, fear not!

Because to celebrate BULLET’s release, CROSSROADS is on sale for only 99¢!

Details below:

Werewolf. Bar bouncer. Dad. Standard traits for any self-respecting, reformed criminal, living under the radar in Demos City. For Leon Gray, normal is what he wants — for himself and his not-yet-changed teenage daughter.

Playing bodyguard to crusading reporter David Hastings would totally ruin Leon’s peace, especially since Hastings has hired killers on his trail, pros who know how he takes his espresso in the morning, and where Leon lives.

The payoff, though, would fill up Shauna’s empty college fund, and in a battle between opportunity and ordinary, money wins. He just has to keep Hastings alive long enough to cash the check.

If only he didn’t have to save his daughter, too.

As a budding wolf, she’s piqued the interest of a local pack Alpha — one Leon knows will steal Shauna right out from under him the first chance he gets.

Leon isn’t about to give up on his daughter or Hastings, and will fight for both longer than it took Demos City to see werewolves as equals to humans.

He can only hope it doesn’t take a thousand years.

And, like I said, IT’S ONLY 99¢!!!

Grab it here:

Cheers for stopping by.

Check it out: cover reveal for Alexander Nader’s Burdin of Choice

Coming via J. Taylor November 10th 2014 is Alexander Nader’s Burdin of Choice, book 2 in the Burdin novels.

I read the first book last year, Beasts of Burdin, and really enjoyed Ty’s dry wit, the wide array of well-described demons, and world building Mr Nader has going on, so I’m very much looking forward to continuing on in the story. You guys want to add Ty Burdin’s tales of brew-goggled woe and reluctant heroics to your reading lists, for sure.

Oh, and you should totally go follow Mr Nader on Twitter, too, because he’s funny–but be preferred for sarcasm. And weirdness. Definitely weirdness. With lots of hair.

Blurb:

Ty Burdin is back. Back to drinking and back to avoiding demons. He is, of course, the leading expert in his field. In both subjects.

That’s probably why, when a customer offers him way too much money just to locate a missing car and some mysterious cargo, he readily agrees. The dude is human after all—Ty’s prime target client base.

Along with the money comes a slew of disappearances which Ty tries to ignore while tracking down that car, because, of course, those missing people might be demon related, and as he’s said before, that’s agency business. Not his. Period.

Until today.

Ty Burdin is to back drinking as well as everything he vowed never to get involved with again.

Question is, which one will kill him first? The booze, the demons, or the Agency?

What do you think? Share in the comments!

BeastsOfBurdin-Blog-Tour-Button

Hi, guys, I’m a tour stop for the Beasts of Burdin blog tour, and it gives me great pleasure to be so.

If you haven’t already, you should check out this cool book. I did, and was entertained for hours.

Demon hunter Ty Burdin hung up his guns, knife, trench coat and fedora a year ago. Bags packed, hands washed of all demon politics, he’s done. Forever.

In fact, to get far far away, he dragged Nora, his rockabilly secretary, from Miami to the Tennessee mountains where he’s lived a life of peace—if peace can be defined as drowning in scotch and taking private eye jobs to keep the lights on. Jobs for real people. Not demons.

No demons.

He’s retired from that. Remember?

Demon hunters aren’t a dime a dozen, though, and when Ty’s brother asks him for a favor—just one—what’s a brother to do? Agreeing to take down one hillbilly demon shouldn’t take that long. In. Decapitate. Out. Favor complete. Back to the office where Nora and his bottle of whiskey are waiting.

Unfortunately for Ty, staying retired doesn’t seem to be in the cards, and an avalanche of bad luck draws him right back to an agency he despises and the career that nearly cost him his sanity.

This time, Ty has no way out and will have to face his own demons just to survive.

Cool, right? And if you’re interested in my thoughts, you can see my review HERE!

But before you go, stick around for not only a guest post from Mr Alex himself, but also a very cool giveaway you’ll WANT to enter.

10 Things Ty Burdin Needs to Survive His Day

**Warning: Contains profanity**

What are ten things I need to get through my day? Phew, man, that’s a pretty tough question. I mean, I guess if really pushed I could only come up with one absolute necessity. I’d tell you, but it’s a pretty big secret. I guess you do have a pretty trustable face. If I told you the one thing that gets me through my day could you keep that between us? Promise?

Huh, okay, here goes, but if this leaves this room I’m gonna know where it came from. So just remember, this is a ‘your eyes only’ kind of deal here.

For me, Ty Burdin, demon-hunter, there is only one must have to get through my day. I can’t believe I’m sharing this. This is really hush-hush. I haven’t even told Nora about it. She’d just fictionalize it and put it in one of her stories anyway. Psht, writers. What’s with those guys? Gotta go and make a story out of everyone’s demons.

Right, where was I? Oh yeah, the one thing. This is it, now or never, but if you so much as crack a smile I will crack your smile. It’s my blanky. Yeah, a blanket I’ve had since I was a little lad. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Big, bad, demon-hunter-hard-ass doesn’t need a gun, or a sword, or a demon grenade, no, he needs a security blanket? Well, listen to this before you judge me, shithead.

When most toddlers are gumming fruit snacks, I was learning about demons. While most kids were having nightmares of the monster in the closest, my dad was teaching me how to kick the shit out of the monster in mine. Yeah, sounds pretty awesome, but do you know how scary it is to be that little and know of all the evil in the world? Instead of playing t-ball, I was learning the proper method for decapitating Azreal—a demon made up completely of eyeball and tongues. That really sticks with a kid.

So yeah, when I got tucked in at night, I pulled my blanket up close and tried to tell myself I was as big and tough as my dad. I did that every night of my life. Eventually, the blanket stuck and I’ve carried it with me ever since as a reminder that I can be as strong as my father was…

Nah, I’m just fucking with you. A bottle of scotch and a pack of smokes is all I need to handle just about anything.

First Up: Book Birthday Day!

Yup, today is release day for CAGED!!!!

\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/

I’m super excited to be sharing this with you all FINALLY! Ethan’s story was as challenging as it was fun to write, and I hope I’ve done him justice, and that you all enjoy spending a little time with him. I mean, you all asked for more Ethan, right? So, now here he is:

CagedIf the meek can become deadly, the strongest can be weak.

For Ethan Holloway, his mission to find a missing werewolf should be simple. Crack a few heads, bust a few chops and the solution always reveals itself. Always.

Not this time.

Ethan’s reputation precedes him, and because it does, someone is ready. Waiting. Unbeknownst to Ethan, he’s about to go down. Hard. Against a foe he never suspected and in a world he never imagined could be real.

What awaits Ethan is a fight not only for his reputation, but also his pack, his female, and his life. If he survives, damage control will become priority number one.

If he survives.

Because even Ethan’s not sure he’s strong enough to take on an entire race all by himself.

Especially one hell bent on exposing who and what he is in the name of sport.
