Excerpt:
Lita gave Duane a keen look and sensed he was able to read her thoughts loud and clear. So for his benefit she recalled the events that led to her ending up in his neck of the woods, so to speak.

It all began back home in Florida when she came home from a shopping trip to find her parents mutated into these honking great big WereBigfoot thingies. They sat her down and explained what they were — some sort of Guardians to the Everglades’ creatures or whatever, especially the tribe of Skunk Apes living in the swamps. Yeah, like they existed. Duh! But there before her was Mom and Dad, living proof of Skunk Apes.

Okay that had been somewhat of a shocker, but that was nothing compared to the next bomb — she was to take over. You what! Apparently it was her time to become a freakin’ Guardian thingy or whatever and continue where her parents left off. It soon became apparent they had a hankering to join their kin in the swamps and let nature take its inevitable course. That was oh so nice of them. Like just dump their daughter in the middle of the biggest secret known to science and take over.

There was no way — no way at all was she, Rosalita Gomez, ever going to get down and dirty in those stinking swamps. NO WAY! And she let her parents know that in those exact words. She had her life all mapped out. First prom night, college parties, then more parties and shopping and get a high paid job somewhere or maybe she’d do some modeling, and even more shopping. She had a twenty foot walk-in wardrobe to fill with shoes and handbags and nothing short of a zombie apocalypse would stop her reaching that goal.

But here she was and not of her own free will. Her parents had actually dialed up E.T. Whoosh! This leggy blonde bitch named Ursula suddenly showed up and gave her a good ticking off for being spoilt and self-centered and other bitch crap. Basically what it boiled down to was — she was The Guardian and that was that. Case closed!

So she did the only thing she knew and ran away but didn’t get far. Ursula caught up with her. And in a flash, though more like she was beamed up and had her molecules scattered then reassembled in some filthy cave with this Bigfoot bitch called Neesha.

And that was when she got the biggest shock ever — like EVER. After drinking this weird shit Jooobaaa and eating the dry version, only it wasn’t dry but all spongy and tasted gross like a dishcloth dipped in cat’s pee — only then did her new life dawn on her.

“Got all that, Duane?” She sauntered back into the living room.

I belong to a Facebook group dealing with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (the autoimmune disease I happen to have). There is a troubling trend in this group that leads to one group literally bullying a select few. And, what is this bullying about? Gluten.

I kid you not.

A little background if you will. Apparently, several years ago, a doctor decided that the cells of gluten looked a lot like thyroid cells, so thus, people with thyroid disease (especially those with autoimmune thyroid disease) should never eat gluten again. Ironically, nothing about this is backed up by hard science, but that’s besides the point.

Well, because people tend to jump on bandwagons, loads of people with thyroid disease and osteopaths have jumped on this like ugly on a monkey. Some even proclaiming that if you stop gluten, eat a modified Paleo diet (which includes eliminating not only gluten, but sugar and dairy as well), then your Hashimoto’s will be cured.

There is a huge problem with this. One: There is no cure for autoimmune disease. Two: Because thyroid hormone is literally inside every cell in your body, you will never get rid of it. Even removing the thyroid gland isn’t enough. Mostly, because it is impossible to remove all trace of thyroid tissue.

So, what point am I making? These Gluten-Free-Paleo addicts are bullying the other thyroid sufferers. It is almost like a religious fervor. On a daily basis, I see people reprimanded for not being Paleo, not eating gluten-free– even when the person has stated that trying the diet did nothing for them.

What are they told? That you didn’t stay on the diet long enough. That you have to be on it for months before all traces of gluten are out of your diet. I’m sorry, but if you feel like hell on a diet, you shouldn’t stay on it for months just because someone on the internet thinks you should.

Are there some people with Hashimoto’s who also have Celiac disease? Sure. Are there some people who don’t have full-blown Celiac but seem to feel better not eating gluten? Yep. And, if either of these apply to you- then more power to you. But, you should not berate someone who does not have the problem- especially with something that hasn’t even been proven.

And, also, on that same note, if you follow the Paleo diet and it works for you, great! But, stop trying to force everyone around you into eating it. Egads.

I feel so strongly about this because I happen to not have issues with gluten. In fact, the other day I had an upset stomach and eating a piece of cake with cool whip on top made me feel completely better. So, I would imagine these gluten zealots would say I was lying. But I’m not.

Not everything works for everyone. And, no one should have to put up with being bullied just because the thing that works for YOU doesn’t happen to work for ME.

About the Book:

Social worker Max Hollingsworth is no stranger to monsters. Supernatural or human, he’s faced all kinds. But when he’s called upon to investigate a missing child, he may have met his match.

Children are vanishing, not just from the streets, but from their parents’ memories. Max’s investigation leads him to a gang of neo-Nazi vampires running a child slavery ring. There, he comes face to face with the deadliest enemy he’s ever met, their charismatic and powerful leader Boone.

Running low on hope and options to find the missing children, Max turns to his friends for help. But even they aren’t enough. Forced to face the darkness of his own past, Max forges an alliance with the least likely ally of all. An enemy whose cruelty was almost his end, and haunts him still.

Thanks to Danielle for having me here to talk about my new book. THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT is Book two in the Speak of the Devil series. Speak of the Devil is the introductory book where we discover the characters, the world of angels and demons, and the situation. In TDMMDI we are left in that world, and taken even farther when the main character Lily discovers a prophecy about the Silence of God and is taken to Hell. It’s darker than the first book and is the transition between the origin book and the resolution book, which will be the third one in the series. It’s The Empire Strikes Back of the trilogy, hence my tag line: The demons strike back!

Danielle suggested I talk to you today about

The Top 10 angel weapons!

Here they are in no particular order…

1. Crosses
Angels and humans can use crosses to repel demons on Earth. They aren’t quite as effective as they usually are with vampires, but they do give demons pause if you need some time to get away.

2. Faith
In my books, God has gone missing. They call it the Silence of God, and for nearly a decade the angels haven’t had contact with him. Some of the angels start to fall because of this lack of connection to God. Those who keep their faith, remain strong.

3. Double bladed sword- Cassie’s weapon of choice
Cassie is one of the juniors at the high school who we discover is an angel. During the battle between the haloes and the horns, Cassie shows up with a double bladed sword all Darth Maul like.

4. Spirit Sword
The Spirit Sword is a holy sword used in the final battle in book one. It gets lost at the end of Speak of the Devil

5. Divine dagger
This is another holy relic the angels have yet to find.

6. Gun – Luc
Luc, our dreamy, angel hero, shows up to rescue Lily with the Spirit Sword, a regular dagger, and a handgun strapped to his hip.

7. Love
Obvs.

8. Teamwork
The angels follow a code and work together, for the most part. Once they get their act together. :p

9. Two short swords –
Belle, Lily’s angel bff, shows up to the holy war with two short swords to make short work of the demon battalion.

10. Lily’s ability-
Lily, a seemingly ordinary high school girl, has the ability to speak to the angels, to Heaven, and eventually between any of the planes which comes in handy since the angels are pretty well plane-bound until God is found.

Great value as far as I’m concerned.

We are pleased to present:

Jessica Moriarty appears to have it all—a successful career as an architect, a loyal group of friends, a gorgeous apartment, and an on-again-off-again affair with Boston’s most eligible bachelor. Behind this “perfect life” façade, Jessica hides the loss she feels over giving up her dream career as an artist, copes with a destructive relationship with her alcoholic mother, and struggles with heartbreak over a lost love.

Jacques Sinclair only needs his cameras, a backpack, and a good pair of walking shoes. A world-renowned photographer, he is a man without boundaries. Despite fame and fortune, he still yearns for the woman who shattered his heart when she vanished from his life five years ago.

A chance meeting brings Jacques and Jessica back together. Reunions aren’t always planned or welcomed, but chemistry has a way of revealing what is denied. Ensnared in a web of sabotage and conspiracy—carefully constructed by people who want to control their lives—Jacques and Jessica struggle to trust each other, break free from the status quo, reclaim their love, and build a life of extraordinary possibility.

Excerpt One (short)

 

She stood on the threshold of the bookstore dodging patrons and pedestrians. Ten past seven. Regret sagged her knees. For the second time in her life, she labeled herself the Queen of Self-Sabotage. As if leaning against a fierce wind of remorse, she pushed the door open, and forced one foot in front of the other.

“I’m looking for Jacques Sinclair.” She forced the words from a too-dry throat.

“I’m sorry, you just missed him.” The employee didn’t look up from the stack of books she arranged on a table.

Missed him. She nodded without truly understanding how she could have undermined herself like this. Again. “He’s really gone then?”

The girl worked as if she hadn’t spoken, head down, oblivious.

Her gaze connected with the cover of Jacques’s book. Legs heavy and unsteady, she maneuvered toward the display until she touched the cover with her fingertips.

Rome.

Closing her eyes, she smelled the overpowering scent of the roses, felt the early morning breeze against bare skin, sensed him moving behind her, tasted him on her lips, heard the low sound of his voice saying her name.

“Excuse me, do you know if Mr. Sinclair is staying in Boston tonight?” she asked.

The woman looked at her as if she were a stalker. “He probably went back to New York. His gallery exhibit isn’t until next weekend.”

“Back to New York?” Information overload crashed her system. So close. The same side of the Atlantic. She braced herself against the counter.

“He lives in New York,” she answered as if speaking to a small, slow child.

“Right. He has an exhibit next Saturday. I saw that in the article…what gallery?” She handed over her credit card and blinked at the cover again.

“The Bliss Institute.”

Breathing ceased again and she silently cursed Fate. Her friend Miranda owned the Bliss Institute. What was happening? Did Jacques know that? Of course not, how could he? She felt like an insane woman on the precipice of a major nervous breakdown.

“Are you all right?” The woman grabbed the book and slipped it into a bag.

“Perfect, never better.” She needed a martini…she’d give her life for a martini. Oblivion sounded like heaven right now.

The girl handed her the receipt before stepping away as if afraid of catching the insanity bug.

Six weeks. Jacques planned on being in Boston for six weeks.

Laughter from upstairs halted her retreat. As if dragging her legs through mud, she walked toward the stairs. With every step, memories overpowered her. Laughing in bed with rain falling outside open windows, whispered secrets in the dark, sharing wine directly from the bottle, feeding each other bread with their fingertips.

Him asking her to marry him, her saying yes.

Her throwing it all away for reasons that now seemed meaningless.

“We should go, Jacques. We’re running late. Miranda’s already at the restaurant.” A stick-like man with shaggy brown hair and black-framed eye glasses appeared at the top of the stairs.

She stood on the bottom step, one foot poised to ascend, her hand on the railing and blocking the way. She clutched the bag to her side and turned to flee.

“Jess?” The quiet question stopped her descent. “Jessica Moriarty?”

She gripped the railing and looked up at him.

Jacques stood at the top of the stairs, blond hair falling across his forehead and skimming his ears, different from the picture on display, more like it had been when they’d known one another, shaggy and disheveled. Emerald eyes snapped with fire as his gaze raked over her from head to foot. A cobalt blue shirt had been stuffed into black jeans, half in the waistband and half out as if he simply didn’t give a damn. He’d rolled the sleeves to his elbows, exposing tanned forearms, and a leather bracelet twisted around his left wrist. He walked toward her like a predator who’d cornered his prey. Slowly…surely. Sexuality oozed from his pores with every step he took.

She stepped back and swallowed the rush of saliva that flooded her mouth.

He stopped two stairs above her. “Running away from me again?”

But first a taste of the early reviews…
4 stars
via Avid Reader:
I loved this
story.
It was refreshingly honest, brutally tragic, and at times lyrical in it’s flow. Their connection was so intense that as I read it, I was like this absolutely cannot survive. Love this intense and in your face has a slow burn to it, and will torch everything in i’s path until it is stamped out…There was nothing contrived about it. I felt like I was literally a fly on the wall and this was happening in reality and not fiction land. I liked them both, probably one of the best couples I have ever read.”…read entire review http://goo.gl/R191Sa
5 stars via ChristophFischerBooks
“Conflicting emotions and insurmountable chemistry cause both of them to reassess the past, their current lives and priorities. Easton shows the magnetic and hypnotic effect of physical and emotional attraction very well and the gradual crumbling of outer facades and deep inner resolve. This is a romantic fantasy written in a convincing and heart warming manner and with enough complications thrown in to make for a very entertaining and gripping read.”…read entire review http://goo.gl/R191Sa

Genre: Urban Fantasy
Blurb:

Jesse James Dawson never wanted to find himself in the middle of a demonic war. However, with the addition of 275 extra souls to his life, he’s got a target painted on his back in the most literal sense. With his apprentice, Estéban Perez, in tow, he heads to Mexico where the boy’s mother, a powerful bruja, will hopefully be able to extract the souls without harm to any party involved.

Champions for generations, the Perez family knows all there is to know about magic and taking out demons. But, like every family, there is drama bubbling beneath the surface. Add to that an ancient evil that has been waiting for just this chance, and of course, things are all going straight to Hell.

My Review:

Oh goodness, what can I say about K.A. Stewart’s A Snake in the Grass? It’s amazing, action-filled, urban-fantasy deliciousness. With each installment of the Jesse James Dawson series, the stakes get higher and I just can’t get enough.

Axel is also back in his full glory. I can’t get into it much here because I don’t want to spoil things, but let’s just say we now know for sure who and what Axel is and it’s wonderful.

Stewart had set this up for a heck of a climax with the next book. Fans of Jim Butcher will love Jesse James Dawson. Long live “The Way.”
