Ivy Granger Psychic Detective Box Set by E.J. Stevens.

Ivy Granger Psychic Detective box set includes Books 1-3 and Bonus Prequel short story.

Enter an award-winning urban fantasy world where monsters roam the streets and things aren't always what they seem. Demons, ghosts, vampires, and necromancers—Ivy dodges the city's deadliest villains while solving its darkest cases. Will she save the day or die trying?

FROSTBITE (Bonus Prequel: Ivy Granger #0.5)

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.

SHADOW SIGHT (Ivy Granger #1)

Ivy Granger's second sight is finally giving her life purpose. Ivy and her best friend Jinx may not be raking in the dough, but their psychic detective agency pays the bills—most of the time. Their only worry is the boredom of a slow day and the occasional crazy client—until a demon walks through their door.

Demons are never a good sign.

GHOST LIGHT (Ivy Granger #2)

Ivy Granger is back, gathering clues in the darkest shadows of downtown Harborsmouth. With the lives of multiple clients on the line, she's in a race against time. Ivy finally has a lead to the whereabouts of the one person who can help her control her wisp abilities, but will she put the needs of her clients above her own?

If Ivy doesn't find a solution soon, she could wind up a ghost herself.

BURNING BRIGHT (Ivy Granger #3)

Things are not going well at the offices of Private Eye. Jinx is having demon problems, the city is overrun with pyromaniacal imps, and Ivy's wisp powers are burning out of control, attracting the attention of both the Seelie and Unseelie courts. It's the worst possible time for the Green Lady to call in a favor, but Ivy's bound by her deal with the glaistig. Too bad there's no wiggle room in faerie bargains.

Ivy must rid the city of imps, keep Jinx from murdering her one solid link to Hell, and fulfill her bargain with the Green Lady—with sidhe assassins hot on her tail.

Just another day's work for Ivy Granger, psychic detective.

#DragonCon2017 Recap and Photos

dragon con dragoncon2017

Dragon Con was once again a wonderful whirlwind of panels and signings.  I had a great time with fans and friends both old and new.

As a guest, I rarely get to attend panels, but I did find time to see the cast of Battlestar Galactica and the cast of Wynonna Earp.

#BSG


Even if you're not a Battlestar Galactica fan, you may recognize actors and actresses from other favorites such as The Magicians, Longmire, and Lucifer.

#Earpers





I even caught photos of Doc (Tim Rozon) and Bobo (Michael Eklund) hugging after their infamous kiss (video of the Doc/Bob kiss here!).


I also had the pleasure of attending a panel on Dracula's influence on horror (with Dacre Stoker, Kenneth Hite, Cherie Priest, and Chelsea Quinn Yarbro), a talk with Jonathan Maberry, and I caught a few minutes of an Urban Fantasy panel (with Laurel K. Hamilton, Patricia Briggs, Kim Harrison, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Jim Butcher).


I would have attended more panels, but, as you can see, I had a busy schedule.

Giant Urban Fantasy Sale

hunting in bruges urban fantasy sale book bargain deal

Love the Ivy Granger series? Spin-off novel HUNTING IN BRUGES is a Bookbub featured deal! Regular price $4.99, Sale price $0.99.


Hunting in Bruges is the first novel in the Hunters' Guild urban fantasy series set in the award-winning world of Ivy Granger. This book can be read as a stand alone novel or as a continuation of the Ivy Granger Psychic Detective urban fantasy series.

hunting in bruges bestseller urban fantasy amazon 99 cent sale


Finalist for the 2017 Raven Award for Best Urban Fantasy.

The only thing worse than being a Hunter in the fae-ridden city of Harborsmouth, is hunting vampires in Bruges.

The medieval city of Bruges is quaint, but the local Hunters' Guild is understaffed, the canals are choked with dead bodies, and there's no shortage of supernatural predators as likely suspects.

On second thought, maybe Bruges isn't so bad after all.

With a desire to prove herself, protect the innocent, and advance within the ranks of the Hunters' Guild, Jenna Lehane hits the cobbled streets of Bruges with blades at the ready. Someone, or something, is murdering tourists and dumping their bodies in the city's scenic canals. With the help of a mysterious stranger, Jenna begins to piece together clues that are dotted throughout the city like blood spatter.

Determined to stop the killings, Jenna delves into a bloody local history that only raises more questions--but some secrets are best left buried. Jenna must put her combat training to the test as she struggles to unearth the truth about an ancient enemy.

Tales from Harborsmouth Teasers

A detective’s job is to take note of the little things, the small details that can break a case wide open, but having anthropomorphic snot treat you like you smelled worse than a troll fart could give a girl a complex.
—Ivy Granger, Frostbite

If a faerie, a vampire, and a demon walk into a bar, you wait for the punch line.  At Private Eye, when a faerie, a vampire, and a demon walk through the door, it’s just another day at the office.
—Ivy Granger, Blood and Mistletoe

Of all the nightclubs, in all the cities, in all the world, the freakin’ demon had to walk into Club Nexus.
—Jinx, Club Nexus - Jinxed

I’d seen a lot in my nine lives, but nothing so strange as Ratfink’s Family Fun Palace and its tone-deaf taxidermied talent.
—Torn, Thrill on Joysen Hill

Q+A with Morgan Sylvia (Abode)

Please welcome today's guest, Morgan Sylvia! Morgan is the author of upcoming horror novel ABODE.

Q+A with Morgan Sylvia

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

Morgan:
  I am not sure, exactly, but I was pretty young. My mother was a librarian, and I was an only child in a fairly remote area, so, needless to say, I started devouring books at a very young age. I was also very much into horseback riding at the time, so I think my earliest works were probably horse stories. I was actually published in second grade, when one of my unicorn stories was selected for a Young Maine Authors Compilation. By the time I was in high school, I was writing short stories and some not-so-short stories. I still have notebooks full of my writing from those days. So, yes, I literally do have a trunk of old stories. Some of it makes me cringe, some makes me laugh, and some is in a pile to be revisited.

EJ:  What brought you to the horror genre?

Morgan:
  I think it was just a combination of having a love of books and literature and a fascination for dark, spooky things. Fear is a very powerful emotion—in fact, it’s one of the strongest emotion a human can feel. When a story can really tap into that, it’s very powerful. I didn’t start out writing horror: my earliest work was fantasy and fanfic-type stuff. I can’t put my finger on any one book or movie that made me cross over to the dark side. It was just a steady progression as my tastes got darker.

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

Morgan: 
BS detection. I’m pretty good at spotting it, but I try to look for the positive in people, and that occasionally bites me in the ass. If I could be a paranormal creature, I’d probably go for being a werewolf.

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

Morgan: 
Writing it gave me nightmares, so I hope that others will find it scary as well. People keep telling me that my poetic side is very clear in the story, though I don’t think I would consider it literary horror. I think there are elements that may appeal to people—for instance, some of it is quite nostalgic, at least for those of us that grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. I also wrote huge chunks of it in second person. One person described it as being in both 2nd and 1st person. But then, every story is different, and people love books for all sorts of reasons. I hope people like it for unexpected reasons that haven’t even occurred to me, at least on a conscious level.

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

Morgan: 
Oddly, for a lot of things I write, I would have a name right off the bat, but for Abode I think I’d rather go for an unknown actor that just fits the role. I can’t think of anyone specific that *is* that character to me.

Abode by Morgan Sylvia

Abode by Morgan Sylvia

A TERRIFYING HAUNTING

This is the place where the harrowed ghosts of a dozen generations whisper in the shadows of their ancestral home, where one family’s dreams of a new beginning turned into a nightmare that ended in tragedy.

A CURSED BLOODLINE

This is the place where a line of witches bound themselves—in blood—to a primeval entity. Here, nightmare and reality meet beneath frozen skies, and even time and space fall under the power of the demonic being that rules this remote northern wood.

A CHANCE ENCOUNTER

This is the place where the path of a tormented survivor meets that of an unknowing innocent. Past and present collide, and secrets long buried crawl back into the pallid light of day as the shadow of the Beast falls over them both. But even the bloodiest dreams of that demonic being may pale in comparison to what lies buried within the human heart.
This is the place where evil dwells …

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 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
