OK, here’s a fun new urban fantasy, and one I feel a certain connection to … among other things, because it’s another book with coauthors. When you’re part of a writing duo, you find yourself looking at other books by writing pairs with a certain fondness of heart. Here’s the duo themselves …
Somehow I wonder how they manage the little balancing act that comes when there are two of you, and one book baby. I know how my coauthor Kimbra and I do it; but their process is probably different. I’ve yet to meet a writing duo that handles this built-in tensions in exactly the same way.
So, anyhow, I couldn’t resist the chance to show you the cover. And yeah, it’s a pretty cool cover. Take a look:

FIRST PLACE in Central Florida RWA’s Touch of Magic contest for paranormal romance.
Cassie Durrett dreams of the darkness. And lives the nightmare. She’s working for a tightwad boss at a pretentious NYC diner, dealing with paralyzing pain that doctors can’t diagnose, and trying to hide her hands that glow purple whenever she …well, whenever.
So, when mystery man, Gabe, walks out of her dreams and into her life to spout some nonsense about her being a mythical creature, she chalks it up to one more crazy thing to add to her it’-sa-crappy-life list. Yet, when his predictions start to come true, she’ll need his help to beat back the darkness spawned creatures invading her reality.
Pretty soon Gabe has her running half way across the country in search of answers. As a bond grows between them, Cassie worries not about losing her mind to the paranormal madness, nor her life to hellish monsters. Rather her deepest fear is surrendering her heart to a powerful man fallen from grace.
