Book Five of The Maker’s Song (release date September 24, 2013–see below*)
A DESPERATE SEARCH. A DARK AND DANGEROUS JOURNEY.
AND EACH STEP COULD DESTROY EVERYONE DANTE LOVES.
ONLY ONE MORTAL WOMAN CAN SAVE HIM . . .
As Dante Baptiste’s true identity as both True Blood and Fallen ripples throughout New Orleans, he and Heather struggle for their lives against different foes, fighting their way back to each other. To free herself from her father’s treachery, Heather accepts help from an ally–and steps into even greater danger. Dante, lost to his brutal past, wavers between his own sense of self and the Bad Seed-programmed S that lurks within, between the never-ending Road and the Great Destroyer. And the danger of becoming both.
. . . UNLESS THE FALLEN REACH HIM FIRST.
Lucien searches frantically for the lovers, all too aware that time is running out. Dark forces continue to gather, eager to possess and manipulate the young vampire for their own ends. The fate of mortals, nightkind, and the Fallen pivots around Dante as he struggles to piece together his shattered psyche and gain control of his power before he rips all three worlds asunder.

*I wanted to explain why the delay in the release of the fifth Maker’s Song book, On Midnight Wings. Back when I was writing Beneath the Skin, I broke my ankle in Orlando at RT (and had to have surgery to repair it once I was home again), then suffered a double pulmonary embolism on the flight home. I can’t tell you how fortunate I feel to have survived that! But I fell behind on my deadlines at that point as I was recovering. I also sold a second series shortly prior to this, so now I was behind in two series. I’ve been racing ever since mid-2009 to catch up. This will finally give me that opportunity.
Book Six of The Maker’s Song, Pale Blue Flames, will be out in August 2014 and I’m hoping that the third Hoodoo book, Black Moon Mojo, will be out sometime in 2014. I’m also working on a third series, Sons of Darkness, that I hope will be out in 2014. In the meantime, I’ll be posting short stories about the Maker’s Song characters and advance peeks from both On Midnight Wings and Black Moon Mojo to tide folks over.
My sincere apologies for the long delay! I appreciate your continued support and I will make it worth your while. I promise! Your support means more to me than you’ll ever know! Y’all ROCK!
