A New Adventure

I have been sitting on this for a little bit, and now that I have the all clear, and it's in PW, I can share it with all of you!

I am moving into the world of standard printing! Tor Books purchased the first three in my paranormal series! WAHOO!! This is the culmination of a year of heavy research, and this series is near and dear to my heart. It's where I've wanted to be from day one, and I am abslolutely elated to be able to work with Heather Osborn.

Right now, I don't have a title to provide -- we're changing it, and I don't have a series name to provide -- still working on that one ;) But here's a brief on what to expect in the months to come. And if everything goes accordingly, the estimated release for the first in the series is spring of 2011.

The Prophecy Begins...

In 1117, nine knights rode with Hughes de Payens to the Holy Land, becoming the Knights Templar. All were bound by marriage or blood. Eight were recorded over time. The Ninth vanished into history.

Beneath the legendary Temple Mount, the knights uncovered holy relics, of which included the Copper Scroll – a document written by Azazel’s unholy hand. For their forbidden digging, the Archangels exacted a sacrifice. The knights would spend eternity battling the demons of Azazel’s creation. With each vile death they claimed, a portion of darkness would enter their soul. In time, they would transform into Knights of Azazel, horrific warriors destined to fight against the Almighty.

A promise remained to give them hope. When darkness raped the land, the seraphs would return. Female descendants of the Nephilim who carry the light to heal their dying souls.

Centuries have passed. Azazel’s might grows to intolerable limits. With the acquisition of nine holy relics, he will gain the power to eradicate the Almighty.

Six Templar stand above the rest in duty, honor, and loyalty. But each is haunted by a tragic past, and their darkened souls rapidly near the end. As they battle both the overwhelming power of evil and the nightmares of lives they left behind, the seraphs are more than tools to victory.

They are salvation.

Stay tuned to my website for more details and additional teasers.
