Happy Book Birthday to What Gifts She Carried! #ya #paranormal

Today’s the day! Actually, tomorrow was supposed to be the day, but Amazon was as anxious as I was to get out in the wild!

 

I’m not going to lie–this book was labor-intensive. I wrote at least thirty-five pages of scenes that just didn’t work because Leigh, my main character, stopped talking to me for a looooong time, likely because I made her relive the nightmare known as The Grave Winner. Sorry, Leigh!

 

Anyway, in case you missed it, here’s the cover, blurb, and a few links. Other links will be added later. And, oh! I’ll be doing a blog tour in September, so stay tuned for details and giveaways!

 

1333x2000

 

Leigh Baxton just wants to pick up the pieces of her life—if you could call it that—but someone keeps resurrecting the dead. These new zombies have a knack for spilling Leigh’s precious blood, something she was warned about by a certain pair of undead sorceresses. 

Desperate to find out why they’re here so Leigh can put the nightmares behind her, she must learn more about the gifts she carries. With Tram’s training sessions and clues from her mom’s past, Leigh begins to piece together what she’s capable of.

Too bad there isn’t a Cliff’s Notes version to saving the world.

The zombies have teamed up with followers of the darkest sorceress who ever lived, and they’ll play a wicked game until she’s freed from her prison inside the earth. When the battle to the death begins, Leigh must rely on friends, crushes, and even her enemies to win the war, but not the grave.

Blurb:

Social worker Max Hollingsworth is no stranger to monsters. Supernatural or human, he’s faced all kinds. But when he’s called upon to investigate a missing child, he may have met his match.

 

Children are vanishing, not just from the streets, but from their parents’ memories. Max’s investigation leads him to a gang of neo-Nazi vampires running a child slavery ring. There, he comes face to face with the deadliest enemy he’s ever met, their charismatic and powerful leader Boone.

 

Running low on hope and options to find the missing children, Max turns to his friends for help. But even they aren’t enough. Forced to face the darkness of his own past, Max forges an alliance with the least likely ally of all. An enemy whose cruelty was almost his end, and haunts him still.

13 Questions with The Devil Made Me Do It Author @sromkey

2000x1333I love this cover! It’s so eerie! Fun fact – it was designed by the Liliana Sanches, the same cover designer who did The Grave Winner and What Gifts She Carried!

 

The Devil Made Me Do It

Book Two: Speak of the Devil series

By Shawna Romkey

 

Coming July 1 – Go to hell!

 

The demons strike back!

 

Lily is working with the angels to stifle the last of the demon outbreaks and to figure out how to stop the Silence of God, so life can get back to boring normality. But all hell breaks loose when she’s stolen from school and brought face to face with the devil himself. Lily has to find her way back home to Luc, crack the prophecy that breaks the curse silencing God, and figure out how she and Luc can ever really be together; but Lucifer has other plans for her that don’t include her ever getting out of Hell in tact.

 

 

Book One, Speak of the Devil, is currently on sale for $2.99 for the Kindle.

 

 

Excerpt

 

Why me? I asked this question a lot, when I died, when I lived, when I’d lost my friends, when I’d hooked up with angels, when I was chased by demons, so it seemed trivial to ask it now, but why me? Why couldn’t I have a regular non-angel boyfriend to make out with and not worry about ruining, well, everything for everybody everywhere?

 

Snap out of it, Lily, I told myself. You have an amazing ability and super-hot— too hot— angel boyfriend, a blessed life that someone upstairs seems to think is valuable and worthy of protection. Quit feeling sorry for yourself and girl up.

 

“Right, girl up. I can do this,” I said aloud. My body was under control finally and I felt like I could go back to class as long as we got a new scene to work on. But I’d hurt Luc. I had to talk to him. I had to fix it and make it right. He was suffering with this as much as I was and probably more so since he had to have that pious-angel behavior and all.

 

I stood to go, pushing the vanity chair back as I did so.

 

“Lily!” someone whispered.

 

“What?” I turned to see if Cassie was there.

 

“Lily, look!” It was difficult to tell if it was a male orfemale voice since it was a whisper.

 

The voice was coming from behind me. I looked back around – that’s when I saw the surface of the mirror tremble, as though it were liquid. It rippled from the center. “Lilith!” The whisper came from the mirror.

 

Too late I remembered something Luc and Belle had said about mirrors. The surface splashed out toward me, and though I reflexively turned away and pulled back, the watery mirror grabbed me with its newly formed reflective arms and pulled me inside.

__________________________________________________________

 

Oooooh, I like that excerpt! Now it’s time to get to know Shawna a bit better with 13 Questions!

1. The zombie apocalypse is here. You’re going to fight them off with the first thing you see on your left. What is it?

My cell phone.

 

2. How do you like your vampires: not at all, sparkly, wearing a cape, or drinking blood from bottles? Why?

I do like vampires. Not sparkly. Capes are cool if it’s a period piece. Blood from bottles?  Hmmm, not so much. I think I just like them yummy… Ian Somerholder, Alexander Skarsgard. That type of thing. :p

 

3. Other than your release day, what is something you’re really looking forward to?

Cover reveals are especially fun! That’s when it becomes real. Then there’s holding the book in your hands for the first time. That’s fun, too.

 

4. What’s the name of the book you’re reading?

I’m reading The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.

 

5. Pop or soda or soda pop or Coke?

It was soda when I was in Missouri. I got ridiculed once I moved to Nova Scotia, so I’ve converted to pop.

 

6. What is your favorite salty treat?

Chips and salsa

 

7. What makes you laugh?

Everything. I’m easily amused. My friends think I’m the best audience ever, but they also leave my house thinking all their jokes are a lot funnier than they really are.

 

8. What’s the one physical object you can’t live without?

My cell phone or laptop. Don’t know what I’d do without them.

 

9. What are you going to do right after you finish this interview?

Maybe read outside. It’s a beautiful day.

 

10. Would you rather have hiccups for the rest of your life or feel like you need to sneeze but not be able to for the rest of your life? Why?

The latter. I hate hiccups.

 

11. Do you have any strange writing quirks? If so, what are they?

I write in bed, which may seem weird. It’s comfy and I use my laptop. I probably write a lot more sleeping scenes than other people do though.

 

12. Would you consider yourself a pioneer or a settler? Why?

Pioneer. I’m a risk taker. I like variety and new things. I wouldn’t want to settle.

 

13. When it comes to food, are you the adventurous type, or do you like standard foods?

Adventurous as long as it isn’t gross. I wouldn’t survive on Fear Factor.

 

Good answers! You can find even more about Shawna below!

Come Sail With Me (But Bring Tape) #MyWritingProcess #MFRWauthor

I’ve been tagged in the #MyWritingProcess blog hop by fellow Kansas author and friend Tracy Million Simmons! I’m supposed to answer four questions and then tag a few other author friends.

 

Here I go!

 

1. What am I working on?

Well, I’ve just recently finished edits for book two of The Grave Winner series, What Gifts She Carried. I’m also scrambling to finish my NA paranormal science fiction romance called Sail by the end of June. Actually, it’s finished but it needs some tweaking.

Here’s the blurb in case you’re interested:

Nineteen-year-old Absidy Jones is a ghost magnet, a sensitive person spirits flock to when they can’t cross over. After her brutal past escaping the hordes of ghosts vying for her attention, she spends her reclusive existence melting down iron into bite-sized pieces. Whether alloy or wrought, ancient paper clips or nails, consuming iron is the only thing that keeps the ghosts away.

But when Absidy’s sister goes missing in deep space, a dangerous place brimming with rogue planets, ship-eating nebulas, and vicious aliens, Absidy vows to find her. She comes out of hiding and boards the first ship she can that’s on a direct route to deep space—a haunted ship. 

To keep the malicious ghosts from killing her, the ship’s alluring bad boy pilot gifts her a small bundle of all the iron on the ship. But their growing relationship is tested with the crew’s prying eyes and hidden secrets.

While the ship sails into deep space, it’s not just her sister’s life that Absidy fears for. It’s her own, as well. Especially since her stash of iron has shrunk to zero. (Add it to Goodreads!)

 

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I like to mish-mash genres (can you say NA paranormal science fiction romance ten times fast?), I love to incorporate humor, and insane plot twists make me giddy.

 

3. Why do I write what I do?

Many of my stories have a horror slant to them, and I think that’s because I love to be scared. If I can scare myself, then I have a chance at scaring readers, too. Plus, I’m a complete sucker for romances, and I love making sparks fly between characters.

 

4. How does my writing process work?

With tape. Lots and lots of tape. Some of you have heard this a thousand times before, but if I don’t put tape over my eyebrows while I write, my fingers will take little vacations from pounding on the keyboard and pluck my eyebrows out. No joke. One of the last times I went without tape and went to the salon for a haircut, my stylist pointed at my eyebrows in total horror and said, “What…happened?” Yeah. I was too embarrassed to explain the truth, so I just mumbled something about aliens.

 

I also have to have a glass of water nearby and complete quiet. Oh, and my face has to be freshly scrubbed, too. I think that’s a subconscious thing so that I can start the writing day with fresh eyes.

 

Well, now that I’ve thoroughly convinced you that I need mental help, it’s time to tag a few authors!

 

1. Heather Hambel Curley (whose debut novel Anything You Ask of Me releases August 4th!)

2. J. Andrew Jansen

3. Pam Godwin

Tag! You’re it!

About the Book:

Mermaid blood.

When Shea MacNamara fell into the ocean for the first time, he found he could breathe underwater. The son of a mermaid, the sea is in his blood. Literally. The best part of Shea’s new life? His girlfriend Kae, who also happens to be a beautiful mermaid.

But darkness lurks under the sea. When evil mermen kidnap Kae, the king reminds Shea that having royal blood means making tough choices.

An Arctic dungeon, a fiery plane crash, the legendary halls of Atlantis…and narwhals?

Having mermaid blood just got a lot more complicated.

 

Excerpt from BLOOD OF A MERMAID, by Katie O’Sullivan

 

Staring into Xander’s dark eyes, she saw again the lonely boy who needed to be comforted. Her heart ached for him. Another surge of electricity shot through her body and her mind slowly began to cloud.

 

Kae struggled to retain control of her thoughts. “I must…get home. It’s late and…and my parents will worry.” She knew she should back away from Xander and leave the garden, but she couldn’t make herself swim away. In fact, she found herself inching closer to his warm body, as if against her will, until his heat completely encircled her.

 

“Stay with me, Kae,” he whispered, his words hovering in the water around her, echoing in her head.

 

“Okay,” she heard herself agree, although she knew it was wrong. But she couldn’t quite remember why it was wrong. She did know she didn’t want to leave him, not when he needed her.

 

His words, Stay with me, seemed to have invaded her entire being, insinuating themselves into every fiber and muscle of her body, sapping her will power to make any decision other than to stay. A small part of her mind tried to disagree, but her body would not listen. She hovered in place, staring into Xander’s dark, bottomless eyes, unable to move away.

The Elsker Saga: Elsker

Coming May 29, 2014

You don’t win the heart of an immortal assassin without making a few enemies along the way. Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr. Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting. He’s an honest to goodness Norse God – an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth. Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms.

 

Her orderly life just got very messy.

ELSKER Excerpt:

 

“Are you sure you will be all right on the stairs?” Ull stood in the grand hall of Cardiff Castle, glancing at the four-inch, shiny death-traps Victoria called shoes. Since Ull’s eyes practically bugged out of his face when he picked me up, I had no intention of changing into the emergency flats I’d stuck in my purse. Victoria had scored another hit.

“Probably not. Walk behind me in case I fall?”

“It would be my pleasure.”

“On our right, the coats of arms,” continued the tour guide. He’d been talking for a good five minutes and I couldn’t remember a single word. That was because Ull had started stroking the small of my back when our tour began, and it took all my concentration just to stay upright.

“The castle is gorgeous.” I admired the stonework as we made our way toward the stairs. There I shifted focus to my feet, staring at each step until I’d reached the top. “Made it.”

“And I was so hoping I would get to catch you.” Ull came up next to me and skimmed my hand with the pads of his fingers.

“Well, the night is young and these shoes are high. You may still get your chance.”

“Tease.” Ull kissed my palm.

“Um.” I swayed on the heels and he chuckled.

“Come, Miss Tostenson. We are losing the group.”

“Right.”

We walked the long corridor framed with paintings. All of the history in these walls was kind of overwhelming. The castle was two thousand years old. The oldest thing we had back in Nehalem was probably the Homestead. Cardiff Castle had about eighteen hundred years on that farm.

“This place is huge,” I whispered when we’d caught up to the tour. “I can’t imagine living here. How could you ever get comfortable?”

“You get used to it,” Ull shrugged. “Find little corners to make your own.”

“How on earth could anyone get used to all of this?”

“When you are stuck in it every day it gets old. Trust me.”

“Right.” Like Ull was an authority on royal dwellings. “Living in a castle sounds sooo terrible.”

“Depends on the day.”

“What does that mean?”

“Just that these walls did more than keep people out — they kept people in, too.”

I thought about my vision from Friday night — of Ull and me in a meadow by a castle. Huh.

“Where did you say your family lived, exactly?” I probed.

But Ull bristled. I’d hit a nerve. “Come Kristia, we have lost our group again.” He gently pulled me down the hall.

“You may have noticed the Animal Wall in front of the Castle. Though William Burges designed the Wall in 1866, it was not constructed until 1890 — nine years after Burges’s death.” The guide lifted an eyebrow as we caught up.  “Please do try to stay with the tour,” he admonished before turning down another corridor. The rest of the group followed closely.

“Sorry.” I ducked my head.

Ull raised a corner of his mouth in a smile. “Why, Kristia, you are blushing.”

“And?” I lifted my chin, and took a step back so I stood against the wall.

“It is sweet.”  Ull paused and lifted a finger to my cheek. My knees buckled and he grabbed my arm to steady me. The touch sent shockwaves straight to my head, leaving me with the unnerving sensation of being underwater. I lost my bearings again and Ull wrapped both hands around my waist to stop my fall.

“Sorry,” I mouthed. “Must be the shoes.” I couldn’t stop staring at his eyes. They almost looked nervous.

“Must be.” He ran his finger along my jaw, stopping to grasp my chin between his thumb and forefinger. His eyes focused on my mouth and my heartbeat accelerated. He ran his thumb lightly over my lips. They parted under his touch. A wave of heat shot from my lower lip straight to my abdomen, creating a slow burn that wasn’t altogether uncomfortable. I watched as his eyes slowly moved down then back up, lingering at the neckline of my dress. Victoria had been right about the push-up bra.

“Must be,” I repeated.

Ull drew his eyes away from my cleavage and took a step closer. He leaned one forearm against the wall, leaving me enveloped between the cold stone and his warm chest. I was suddenly very dizzy.

“Kristia,” he spoke in a whisper.

“Yes?” I whispered back. Ull was looking at me with an intensity I wasn’t prepared for. He stepped in, closing the last inch between us.

“Look at me.” He spoke again, lifting my chin so my lips were tilted towards his. If his body hadn’t been pressed against mine, I would have collapsed in a heap that instant. Instead, I took a shaky breath as Ull dropped his head. He ran his nose along my jaw line, pausing when he reached my ear. He breathed in, the cool air sending a shiver down my neck. With painstaking slowness he drew his nose across my cheek until our lips were almost touching. Now when I looked into his eyes I saw something entirely different. He was strong. Confident. And very much in control.

I let out a small sigh and immediately he covered my mouth with his. It wasn’t a gentle kiss — it was commanding, almost forceful. I melted against him as he claimed my lips, moved down my jaw to consume my neck. My insides throbbed. In that moment, I would have done absolutely anything he asked me to.

“Kristia,” he whispered again.

“Mmm.” It was the best I could muster by way of response.

“I think we need to stop.”

In God’s name, why?

“Will you be joining the rest of my tour, or shall I leave the two of you here?” The guide stood at the end of the corridor, literally tapping his foot. Oops.

Ull placed his hands around my waist to right me. I smoothed my hair and straightened my dress, my cheeks burning the whole time.

“Great timing,” I muttered. Just when things were getting good.

“Do not worry Kristia.” Ull winked. “We have all the time in the world.”

I sure hoped so.
