New Year, New Plans, New Releases!

Hey guys!

It’s been awhile, but with the new year brings new things all bright and beautiful… And frightening (let’s be honest)!

Sacrifice_Broken 10percent

Starting 2018 off, I’m having a sale for Revelations book one, Sacrifice. It will be 99¢ starting today! The sale will go from January 18- January 25.

Then, exactly right then, Revelations books two, Madhouse will go live (January 25th)! So if you’ve read book one, you can pre-order book 2 now to get a jump on seeing what happens next.

After that, I have a release on February 12th with A.L. Kessler for the 3rd volume of our Syndicate series (Voices/Lost It All- available for Pre-Order). Remember this is two novellas in one book, both in the same universe, with overlapping characters and plots. Volume one (Code Name: Fox/Mind Games) and Volume two (In Disguise/Sing To Me) are both available on Amazon and FREE on KU.

Speaking of KU, if you are a subscriber and prefer to read that way then this is for you. My Revelations series is in KU also. So you’d like to check out either book Revelations: Sacrifice or Revelations: Madhouse (when it releases), you can find them in the KU library as well!

For 2018, I plan on opening my blog up to guest posts, so if you are an author, PA, or blogger who might want to share a post feel free to contact me on Facebook or Twitter and I can get you scheduled.

That is pretty much it for right now. I’m busy dusting off the cobwebs around here and hope all of you are having a fantastic start to the new year!

Playlist: Sacrifice by Mia Bishop

Sacrifice by Mia Bishop

The first inspiration I had for Nico and Abby was while we were driving home from Denver a few years ago and I was listening to a song called Blood Like Lemonade by Morcheeba, but the real meat and potatoes of Sacrifice came on another trip to Denver when Hozier’s Take Me To Church came on. Boom! Inspiration struck and I had a story. On that same trip I heard Ghost by Ella Henderson and the entire story arc for another character who appears in Book Two started to form (More on that later as I’m still writing book two and I don’t want to give away any spoilers). Here’s my playlist for Sacrifice, which started out being called Dusk and in the end was changed to a much more fitting title.

  1. Hozier – Take Me To Church
  2. Gin Wigmore – Kill of the Night
  3. Awolnation – SAIL
  4. Sam Smith – Stay With Me
  5. Gin Wigmore – Stealing Happiness
  6. The Pretty Reckless – Heaven Knows
  7. Imagine Dragons – Demons
  8. Fall Out Boy – Light ‘Em Up
  9. Max Frost – Nice and Slow
  10. Florence And The Machine – I’m not calling you a liar
  11. Bear in Heaven – Sinful Nature
  12. Zeale feat. Patricia Lynn –  Hope Dies
  13. Gin Wigmore – Black Sheep
  14. Zella Day – Sacrifice
  15. Ruelle – Monsters
  16. Morcheeba – Blood Like Lemonade

About Sacrifice:

In the New Mexico desert, evil is stirring. A lost man must protect everything he holds dear from the oncoming storm and a mysterious woman is the key.

A decade after being forced out of the priesthood, Nico Lynch spends his days drinking himself into an early grave and his nights hunting demons. His world is turned upside down when he is asked to help a local Striga Coven.

Abby shouldn’t have survived, but she did and that’s turning out to be one hell of a problem for Nico. The world he lives in is black and white. There has always been a clear definition between good and evil, right and wrong. Every moment he spends with Abby challenges him to see the world differently.

Mysterious forces have brought them together, pitting them against a demon army. Nico will either be the savior of mankind or the catalyst of the apocalypse and Abby’s fate rests in his hands.

Available on Amazon!

Character Profile: The Striga from Sacrifice

(These character profiles are just a little something I’ve done from the prospective of an organization that makes a brief appearance in Sacrifice and will have a much larger presence in upcoming books in the series. I’ve take great care to not include any spoilers, but if I’ve missed any I apologize in advance.)File folder with blank label for text

Sacrifice

Organization: Striga Coven of the Southwest

Known Names: Arveda Corinthia, Meredith, Kara, Josephine, Adaline, Chloe
Sex: Female
Age: Unknown
Designation: Magick Users
Hair: Varies
Eyes: Varies
Description: Several reports state that the Striga can transform into large humanoid-like birds of prey. The Order has been unable to confirm these reports. Other sources claim that this is simply one of many illusions that the Striga use to frighten and intimidate humans.

Allies: Nico Lynch, Abigail Stine, Lobo (Last name unknown), Alexander Hardcastle, Nefarious Stevens
Enemies: John of Patmos, Rosalie Dei Caduti, Gabriel
Personal Motto: A Striga bows to no man.
Weapon of choice: Magick, preferably fire or electricity

Important information from The Order of Eternal Mercy:
The Striga, and most importantly their leader/mother Arveda, are ruthless magick users who see men as nothing more than walking/talking ATMs. Arveda’s plans have yet to be revealed to The Order of Eternal Mercy, but we are keeping tabs on several of their coven at the moment.
Most of the women live in Dusk, NM and are currently working with the excommunicated priest, Nico Lynch, and his accomplice, Abigail Stine, to stop the out flow of demons who are threatening mankind’s existence. Although as we’ve seen in the past Arveda has been known to double cross even her closest ally if it benefits her and her coven.
