Famine (The Four Horsemen #3) Cover Reveal

Ahhhhh!!! So freaking excited to share Famine's cover with you all! I'm O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with it. 😍😍😍😍 A huge thank you goes to Regina Wamba of Mae I Design for the gorgeous cover and to @allenbokendall for modeling for it!

A lot of you have asked about when Famine was releasing. I'd been aiming for March, and that obviously didn't happen. I'm still in the middle of writing the book, and then there are edits, so it will probably be another couple of months--but it could be longer. At the moment I have both a toddler and an infant at home, so I'm back down to halftime work. That being said, I am LOVING writing this story and the characters. I can't WAIT to share more with you all. I'm sure I'll post another teaser in the next few weeks, but for now, here's the description:

Famine (The Four Horsemen #3)
Coming Spring/Summer 2020

They came to earth--Pestilence, War, Famine, Death--four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all.

Ana da Silva always assumed she’d die young, she just never expected it to be at the hands of Famine, the haunting immortal who once spared her life so many years ago. But if the horseman remembers her at all, he must not care, for when she comes face to face with him for the second time in her life, she’s stabbed and left for dead.

Only, she doesn’t quite die.

If there’s one thing Famine is good at, it’s cruelty. And how these blighted bastards deserve it. Try as he might, he can’t forget what they once did to him. But when Ana, a ghost from his past, corners him and promises pain for what he so recently did to her, she and her empty threats captivate him, and he decides to keep her around.

In spite of themselves, Ana and Famine are drawn to each other. But at the end of the day, the two are enemies. Nothing changes that. Not one kind act, not two. And definitely not a few steamy nights. But enemies or reluctant lovers, if they don’t stop themselves soon, heaven will.

Pestilence has Been Nominated for Film ... Now I Need Your Help!

Hey readers! 

So I know that what you all really want are Famine (The Four Horsemen #3) updates--and those are coming--but I wanted to pop on to mention that Pestilence has been nominated for film in a flash voting contest on TaleFlick. What is TaleFlick? Basically, it's a site that allows Hollywood agents to discover books that readers think should be turned into movies, and the more votes that book generates on the site, the more likely they are to take notice.


So, I never do this--I hate asking you readers for anything--but I'm going to ask you all now: if you enjoyed reading Pestilence and think it would make a good movie or show, please consider following the link here and voting. V
oting closes in two days, so this is like speed-dating, only for books! 

Also, can we talk about the fact that Pestilence has been a huge D-bag lately with this Coronavirus? Go home, Plague-Boy, you're drunk. But seriously, I hope you and all those you love are safe and healthy! (And more news on the series is coming soooooon!!!)

Famine Teaser #2

Famine Teaser 

Hey guys! So, I'm crossing my fingers that this teaser pops up without any issues because when I originally tried to post it, I had all the issues. (I can't decide if technology has backslid in the last few years, or if I'm simply getting old ... I'm sure it's the technology ;)

I thought I'd share another Famine teaser with you all! This is unedited and subject to change between now and the book's release. Apologies for any errors you spot! Enjoy!

Five years ago 

The chilly air pricks at my bare skin. I don’t dare take my shirt back from the horseman, even though I’m cold to the bone. I begin to shiver, my teeth clicking together.

“You’re cold.” His husky voice seems as though it’s pulled from the darkness itself.

“I’m okay.”

“Lay next to me.”

I stare at where I think his eyes are. His words coil low in my belly. I can tell he doesn’t mean to make the offer sexual, but between that rough voice and the fact that our torsos are both bare, my mind can’t help going there. I’ve never laid next to a man who I wasn’t related to.

“You’re hurt,” I say. “I don’t want to jostle—”

“If you were worried about jostling my injuries, you wouldn’t have dragged me damn close to the point of death.”

Er, fair point.

“I wasn’t trying to hurt you,” I say. “I was trying to help you.”

He grunts, though I have no clue whether he believes me or not.

“I … couldn’t leave you,” I admit, picking at a fingernail. The room is quiet for a long moment. Then—

“Lay down next to me.”

I stare at him again, running my teeth over my lower lip.

“I don’t trust you,” I confess.

“That makes two of us.”

I make a disbelieving noise. “I saved you.”

“If this is your idea of saving a man—” His voice cuts off and he takes a ragged breath, “then I don’t want to know what your idea of punishment is.”

“I can’t believe—” My teeth chatter, “I actually felt bad for you. You’re an ass.”

“Fine,” he says, “stay cold.”

I glare at his form in the darkness. It’s clear he’s done talking.

I last maybe another fifteen minutes before I curse under my breath, then scooch over to his side. I bump into something wet and gooey.

The horseman hisses in a breath.

Shit— “Sorry!” I apologize.

He grunts again.

Gingerly I lay myself down next to him, bumping his arm twice more on accident. Each time he makes a low, pained sound.

Bet he’s regretting his offer now.

My bare skin presses against the side of his torso. The only place to put my head is on his shoulder. This is how lovers sleep, nestled in each other’s arms.

“Don’t get any ideas,” I warn him, as though he’s the one with the dirty thoughts.

“Because your flesh is so tempting right now,” he quips.
