#AudiobookMonth Hound's Bite Release Party Giveaway

Happy Audiobook Month!  We're celebrating Audiobook Month and the highly anticipated HOUND'S BITE audiobook release with a HUGE giveaway.  Keep reading for details on how to win a Hound's Bite Prize Pack with gorgeous earbuds and swag signed by the author and narrators.

New Release: Hound's Bite Audiobook Urban Fantasy

Hound's Bite (Ivy Granger Psychic Detective #5) by E.J. Stevens.  Narrated by Melanie Mason and Anthony Bowling.

Ivy Granger thought she left the worst of Mab's creations behind when she escaped Faerie. She thought wrong.

In a cruel twist of fate, Ivy has unleashed a powerful horde of Unseelie beasts upon her city, turning her homecoming into a potential slaughter of innocents. Now Ivy must gather her allies to fight a reputedly unstoppable force—The Wild Hunt.

Will the training Ivy received in her father's court be enough to save her city, or will Harborsmouth be forced to kneel before the Lord of the Hunt? She is willing to risk her own life, but some sacrifices come at a cost worse than death. When an ally is bitten by one of The Wild Hunt's hounds, Ivy must face the possibility that winning this battle may mean killing the one person she has come to love most.

Tales from Harborsmouth Pre-Order Party

Have you been wanting to give the Ivy Granger series a try, or are you a mega fan wanting more stories from the monster-filled streets of Harborsmouth? You're in luck.


Tales from Harborsmouth, an Ivy Granger series collection with two novellas and two exclusive short stories, is now available for pre-order. More Ivy, Jinx, Marvin, Sparky, Forneus, and Torn! Are you excited? We are, and we're celebrating with an awesome giveaway. So grab some cake and pull up a chair. It's time to party!

Tales from Harborsmouth Ivy Granger Psychic Detective Urban Fantasy

Tales from Harborsmouth (Ivy Granger #0.5, #1.5, #2.5, #5.5) by E.J. Stevens.

In Tales from Harborsmouth, readers get to delve deeper into the award-winning world of Ivy Granger.

Ivy Granger is a psychic detective with ties to Harborsmouth's paranormal underworld. Too bad those ties tend to ensnare Ivy and her friend Jinx in the Machiavellian schemes of the city's teeming population of bloodsucking vampires and psychotic faeries.

Tales from Harborsmouth is the first time the Ivy Granger novellas are in one collection and features two exclusive short stories the series prequel Frostbite and the newest Ivy Granger tale Thrill on Joysen Hill.

FROSTBITE (Ivy Granger #0.5)

In this Ivy Granger prequel, join Ivy and Jinx on a disturbing case that leads down a dead end alley to a house ravaged by time and circumstance.

Everyone knows that there's no such thing as ghosts, but when a client claims that her house is being haunted, Ivy tries to keep her mind open and her weapons handy. If her psychic gifts and recent cases have taught her anything, it's that you're better off arming yourself for the unexpected. Anything is possible in Harborsmouth.

BLOOD AND MISTLETOE (Ivy Granger #1.5)

Holidays are worse than a full moon for making people crazy. In Harborsmouth, where many of the residents are undead vampires or monstrous fae, the combination may prove deadly.

Holidays are Hell, a point driven home when a certain demon attorney returns with information regarding a series of bloody murders. Five Harborsmouth residents have been killed and every victim has one thing in common—they are fae. Whoever is killing faeries must be stopped, but they only leave one clue behind—a piece of mistletoe floating in a pool of the victim's blood. The holidays just got interesting.

CLUB NEXUS (Ivy Granger #2.5)

A demon, a human, an Unseelie faerie, and a vampire walk into a bar...

These four intertwining short stories are set in Club Nexus, the hidden haunt of Harborsmouth's paranormal underworld.

Iced:  A bargain gone wrong leads a highborn Unseelie faerie to life as an enslaved bartender with a taste for revenge.

Dusted:  Being a highly skilled predator doesn't necessarily put you at the top of the food chain at Club Nexus. A southern vampire with a hankering for blood and wanton violence may have bit off more than he can chew.

Demonized:  The demon attorney we love to hate has his eye on a certain rockabilly human. Too bad she's brought a crossbow loaded with holy water dipped bolts for this night on the town.

Jinxed:  Just when Jinx needs a carefree girl's night out with Ivy, a smoking hot demon tries to buy her a drink. She really is the unluckiest human on the planet.

THRILL ON JOYSEN HILL (Ivy Granger #5.5)

Few places are as rife with opportunity or as fraught with danger as Harborsmouth's notorious Joysen Hill. 

Vampires own the real estate, and even the most ruthless human thugs won't venture out after dark, but when Torn gets stuck babysitting, he can only think of one place in Harborsmouth interesting enough to take a demon toddler, a teenage bridge troll, and a grouchy hearth brownie.  What happens next substantiates the city's advertising slogan.  No matter who or what you are, no matter how young or old, you can find your thrill on Joysen Hill.

Genre: Urban Fantasy, Supernatural Suspense
Release Date: July 11, 2017

Mason Dixon Monster Hunter Release Party Giveaway

We're celebrating Eric R. Asher's new urban fantasy release MASON DIXON - MONSTER HUNTER.  Keep reading to learn more about the novella and enter to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card.  Let's party!

Mason Dixon Monster Hunter Urban Fantasy Eric R. Asher Release Giveaway

Mason Dixon - Monster Hunter (New Templars #1) by Eric R. Asher

They are the first line of defense against the things that go bump in the night.

They are the keepers of a centuries-old legacy of The Church defending the world against the forces of darkness.

They are a bunch of highly armed rednecks, internet video celebrities, soccer moms, and assorted broken nutjobs.

They are the new Templars, and things are about to get weird.

From the pages of Bubba the Monster Hunter comes a new series featuring the Hunters from around the United States hunting down monsters, fighting off supernatural baddies, and making life really, really bad for the things that hunt people.

He’s Mason Dixon, and he’s a bona fide internet celebrity. He has his own video series, a pistol that deserves its own area code, and a high definition video camera, and he’s not afraid to use any of them.

In this introductory urban fantasy novella, we meet Mason, his right hand Emma, his “handler” Noah, his anime-styled hacker friend Himari, and more monsters than you can shake a stick at. Unless it’s a really big stick.

With Mason, it’s always a big stick. This first novella in the series follows Mason through the wilds of Missouri as he hunts down monsters that hunt men, monsters that eat chewing tobacco, and monsters that make pancakes. And there’s moonshine.

And then Bubba the Monster Hunter shows up.

The New Templars novella series is a new series of short novels, similar to BookShots. Mason Dixon – Monster Hunter is the first in the series by popular urban fantasy and steampunk author Eric R. Asher.

Book Giveaway: Deadmen Walking by Sherrilyn Kenyon

We have a special book giveaway today from Tor books and New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon.  Keep reading for a chance to win a hardcover copy of DEADMEN WALKING.

Deadmen Walking Deadman's Cross Sherrilyn Kenyon

Deadmen Walking (Deadman's Cross #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Hell On Earth.

When the Chthonians brought the primal gods to a truce at the end of their great war, part of the pact they forged was that the worst of the evil the gods had unleashed against each other and mankind would be forever banished.

But forever is a long time. And nothing can contain those determined to find a way back.

To catch evil, it takes evil . . .

While Thorn is able to contain the demons unleashed on the ground, the ones who prey on the innocent sailors and sea faring travelers are beyond his reach.

For the sake of humanity, he makes a shaky alliance with an old foe, Marcelina. In the form of the ship they sail upon, she assembles a team under the command of Captain Devlyn Nathaniel Bane, one of the most notorious and bloodthirsty pirates to ever sail the high seas.

Damned and murdered by his own, Bane is out for revenge. With his own secret agenda, he agrees to take charge of the motley crew of pirates and brigands, and to protect the seas from the preternatural terrors that seek to devour every unwary soul they can take.

Theirs is a sacred and deadly task, as they are hunted by their prey and human authorities alike. If they fail, the world will fall to the ancient gods of chaos, and anarchy will reign. Most of all, the Southern gate, where the greatest, most powerful darkness is imprisoned, will be opened and there will be no stopping it.

It’s yo ho ho and a bottle of high seas stakes where the souls of all humanity are the ultimate prize and bargaining chip.

The Lifeblood of Ill-Fated Women Book Giveaway

Today, we have a special giveaway for our readers.  Love dark fantasy and Norse mythology?  Want to win a signed book and an Amazon gift card?  Keep reading for details!

The Lifeblood of Ill-Fated Women The Blood, Sun, and Moon Kevin James Breaux

The Lifeblood of Ill-Fated Women (The Blood, Sun, and Moon #1) by Kevin James Breaux.

The Viking princess Astrid finds herself wandering through a strange land—with no memory of how she arrived. Her search for answers will lead to enemies, both human and demonic.

Astrid the White isn't an average princess. She has always stayed by the side of her father, King Kol, and learned warfare and weaponry from the best Vikings in the land. When she awakens in the city of Birka and hears the sounds of war, she rushes proudly into the fray. She is more than capable of taking down any enemy wishing to disturb the peace.

This enemy, however, isn't what she expected. Before Astrid even gets outside the walls, a golden light knocks her out.

She comes to in the snow, in full battle armor. Astrid first suspects that this is a challenge from her father--or even the gods themselves. By acting correctly, she can gain the favor of Odin, the Allfather.

Astrid wants to complete the test, but it becomes more and more difficult as she explores this new part of the world and encounters both monsters and monstrous men. As creatures from the darkest legends reveal themselves, Astrid will discover that her journey isn't about acting correctly or passing Odin's test. It's about pure survival. Before she can even think about finding Birka, she will have to defend herself against the demons of this new world.

We have a special sneak peek book excerpt and signed book giveaway for urban fantasy fans today to celebrate the release of Rattle the Bones, the sixth novel in the fabulous (seriously, if you haven't read these books, go fill your ereader now!) Vesik series by Eric R. Asher.

Keep reading for a chance to win one of three RATTLE THE BONES paperbacks signed by the author!

Rattle the Bones Vesik 6 Urban Fantasy by Eric R. Asher

Rattle the Bones (Vesik #6) by Eric R. Asher.

Much has been lost in the conflict with the Fae king and his allies, a conflict we hadn’t known we were in until one of our own fell at his hand. And while a great Seal between realms may have been rebuilt, dark things slipped through in the chaos, creatures who would overrun this world. Our allies are many. Our enemies are terrible. And someone ate my last chimichanga despite the fact I had marked it with a note that clearly said it was mine.


Genre: Supernatural Suspense, Urban Fantasy
Keywords: #Necromancer #Paranormal #Supernatural #UrbanFantasy

Book Excerpt: Rattle the Bones

     “These are the best effects I’ve ever seen,” an older girl said, maybe a teenager or just out of those awful years. “It feels like stone.”
     “Momma says all the people in that shop love Satan,” a little boy said.
     “I have lived enough millennia to know evil,” Aeros said. “Despite any transgression those people may have committed, they are benevolent.”
     A woman on a bench nearby started fidgeting. She either didn’t realize Aeros was with us, or she thought this was all for fun.
     “You have him talking to people?” Edgar said. “They think it’s a show?”
     “Some of them,” Zola said as she turned and lowered her voice.
     “And not an advertising gimmick?” I asked. I raised my voice. “Maybe we should hang a sign around his neck, could get some extra business.”
     The Old God turned to look at me. I was fairly certain he had a few choice words for me, but he kept them to himself. There were kids present after all.

What did you think of the book excerpt?  Have you read the Vesik series?  Do you have a favorite character?  I'm excited to see Edgar the Watcher and Zola the necromancer return in Rattle the Bones.

Author Q+A: Bec R. Robertson (The Fallen Trilogy)

Please welcome today's guest author, Bec. R. Robertson.  Bec is the author of The Fallen paranormal romance series, including FALLEN HEART. 

Q+A with Bec R. Robertson

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

Bec:
  I first started writing (terrible poetry) when I was about 12 or 13 years old.  Looking back I cringe at the awfulness but the time it was a much needed way to express all those bottled up feelings of adolescent frustration I felt.  As well, another motivating thing for me was my English teacher in high school.  He was one of the only teachers in my rather staid and conversation school that I liked and actually got on with.  He was a rather flamboyant character and he just totally inspired me as he had such a passion for fiction.  When he used to read books out to us he really made them come alive.

EJ:  What brought you to the fantasy genre?

Bec:
  I have always been a fan of the fantasy genre, ever since I fell in love with CS Lewis's fantastic Chronicles of Narnia.  I had the seed of an idea in my head before I came to write The Fallen Trilogy series but it was a while before I got down to the nitty gritty of actually committing fingers to keyboard.  When I did, I had the most fun I've had writing in any genre, so you can definitely expect me to return to the genre again, even after the series is all wrapped up.

EJ:  If you could be any paranormal creature or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?

Bec:
  I think I would be an angel, as I would like to be able to help people and guide them while also not having to fear death or dying. Angels have always held a particular fascination for me, and I find a lot of the artwork inspired by them beautiful too. This love of angels and the myths and legends surrounding them is partly what inspired me when I sat down to write Fallen Heart.

EJ:  Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.

Bec:
  If you enjoy urban fantasy that's heavy on suspense, secrets, and lashings of epic romance, you should definitely check out Fallen Heart.  Full of the mythology of angels, demons and other celestial beings, it's perfect for fans of YA fantasy romance and paranormal suspense.

The story is told from the point of view of Bailey, a cute sixteen year old fallen angel sent to earth to guard Celeste, a mortal, and is centered around their forbidden love for one another.  Bailey's passion for Celeste arouses the ire of the Elder Gods, putting her in danger. But to save her, Bailey will discover he must make the biggest sacrifice of all- his own happiness, and possibly even his life...

EJ:  If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?

Bec:
  I would cast Selena Gomez as Celeste as she would absolutely fit the bill, and for Bailey, I think it would have to be Zac Effron, for his cherubic adorability.

Thank you, Bec, for joining us here at From the Shadows.

You can learn more about Bec R. Robertson on her website.  Learn more about the book FALLEN HEART below.

The Fallen paranormal romance FALLEN HEART Bec R. Robertson

Fallen Heart (The Fallen #1) by Bec R. Robertson.

What happens when a fallen angel forbidden to love defies the Gods and falls for a mortal girl?

Trained from a young age to take part in the ancient tradition of the Fallen, sixteen year old Bailey is instructed to guard and protect his mortal charge Celeste. When his mission's completed, like all Fallen he'll be recalled to serve one of two Arch Angels - Thorus or the Lightbringer. It's been that way for millennia, or so his Guardian, Ganor says.

What he's not supposed to do is fall in love.

Warned from getting romantically involved with Celeste by an ex-angel, Bailey decides to ignore advice and follow his heart instead. But when he defies the laws of the Unseen Gods and tastes love with a mortal, he sets a chain of disastrous events in motion, placing himself and Celeste in danger. On a mission to protect her, Bailey uncovers a dark secret - Thorus was overthrown by the Lightbringer long ago. Now the Lightbringer reigns supreme and intends to use the Fallen to bring a reign of terror upon earth.

When the only item allowing Bailey to exist in the earth realm disappears, he must race against time to protect Celeste and save a world on the brink of crisis. But if Bailey wants to rescue humanity from darkness and ensure the safety of the girl he loves, he might have to make the greatest sacrifice of all – his own life.
