Book: Revenant
Release Date: December 16, 2014
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing

Hey, everyone!

So, I have a new release about to hit the shelves! The latest book in the Demonica/Lords of Deliverance series, REVENANT, will be loosed upon the world on December 16th, just in time for Christmas!

Now, for those of you who don’t know, the hero, Revenant, has lived his entire life believing he’s a fallen angel, and all of a sudden, he learns he has a family and that his life was utter BS. Now, he’s a pretty bitter dude. A bitter dude who has never experienced Christmas. So his holiday to-do list is a little, well, weird. But he’s cool with sharing, so here goes!

Revenant’s Holiday To-Do List:

  1. Buy alcohol.
  2. Drink alcohol.
  3. Drink more alcohol.
  4. Tell my grand-nephew that there is no Santa.
  5. Eat a reindeer burger.
  6. Buy more alcohol.
  7. Turn down all invitations to Christmas parties and family get-togethers. Assuming I get any.
  8. Spend a lot of time in the southern hemisphere, because snow is stupid.
  9. Get into an all-out brawl with Reaver because I told my grand-nephew about Santa. He has no sense of humor. And seriously, the kid is too little to understand what I said, anyway.
  10. Recover from the Reaver-inflicted wounds. Better yet, get that hot doctor, Blaspheme, treat my injuries. I want to experience her bedside manner.
  11. Listen to Blaspheme lecture me on why telling little kids that there is no Santa is an dick thing to do.
  12. Suitably chastened, buy gifts for said grand-nephew. I think he’d like a drum set. Or a dozen kittens. I’d get him a puppy but he already has an asshole hellhound.
  13. Oh, look…I got an invitation to Christmas dinner with Reaver, Harvester, and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I know how to say, “Hell, no,” in fifty different languages. But maybe…nah.
  14. Okay, okay, accept the invite. But I won’t enjoy it. I won’t love the Christmas music or the smell of roasting chestnuts or the way everyone is all happy.
  15. Make sure the eggnog is spiked.
  16. When no one is looking, tell my grand-nephew that Santa does exist, and give him some reindeer food to leave out for the jolly old dude’s reindeer. After all, you’re only a kid once. Unless you’re reincarnated. But I’ll save that conversation for later.
  17. Take my drunk ass home and dream of Blaspheme. Naked. Beneath a Christmas tree. Those things have to be good for something, after all…

About the Book:

Revenant200HELL HATH NO FURY . . .

For five thousand years, Revenant believed he was alone in the world, a fallen angel beyond any redemption. Now he finds he has a twin brother who had all the light and love Revenant was denied. Caught in a tug of war between Heaven and Hell, he must weigh his thirst for revenge against his desire for a mysterious female named Blaspheme—a female whose very origins could deliver him into salvation . . . or destruction.


Blaspheme has a deadly secret: she’s the forbidden offspring of an angel and a fallen angel. Hunted by both heavenly and satanic forces, she has survived only by laying low and trusting no one. When Revenant claims he can save them both, how can she possibly believe him? But the powerful angel is persistence incarnate and for Blaspheme, there’s no place she can hide in Heaven or Hell where he won’t find her . . .

    Luckily, we don’t do a big Christmas around our house, so there really isn’t a to-do list. I should probably send Christmas cards. I haven’t in two years. Maybe I should just be like Revenant and put alcohol on my list, at least that way, it would get done. 🙂

  2. top ogf my to do holidays list? Finishing all teh christmas present i must do and send them on time for teh receiver to hope getting them on time for christmas… all my time is spend on that at teh moment even the nights

    1: Re-read all of your books and pretend that the real world doesn’t exist. 2: Remember to start ‘getting the flu’ a few days before Xmas to avoid family functions. 3: Assemble the awesome new cat tree I bought, which seemed a lot less awesome when it arrived ‘assembly required’ in a box big enough for a Fiat!. (English instructions not included ) 4: Stock up on Jagermeister and Xanax because in preparation for Xmas because I’ll feel too guilty telling my mom I have the flu again. 5: Read more, this time add coffee and chocolate!
