Fresh Blood

Hello friends! My occult rock’n’roll novel, Bloody Waters, will finally be out in North America this July, thanks to Outland Entertainment! This is big news for me. I’ve been on a huge journey with Bloody Waters, from the pits of defeat to an award nomination and finally publication overseas.

Here’s the brilliant new cover, by artist Chris Yarbrough:

For those who have been with me along the way, I thank you. I wouldn’t have the career I do without this book and without your support. For those who are new to Bloody Waters, I hope you will check it out, because I am immensely proud of this book.

The new North American edition will be available on Jull 11th this year. You can preorder it now, direct from Outland, or from the usual suspects.

If you have previously read and enjoyed the book it would be incredible if you’d leave me a review on Amazon or Goodreads, or on your blog, or if you just tell your friends about it. I am working to put the final touches on the sequel, Blackened Skies, now and every bit of attention on this first book bodes well for the followup.

Here’s the blurb again:

Is the Devil more trustworthy than a record executive? Young guitar virtuoso Clarice Marnier is on the verge of success when she crosses the wrong A&R man.

Instead of being signed to a major label, she’s blacklisted. So Clarice makes a deal with the Devil: the soul of her enemy for a record deal and a second chance.

As Clarice and her band, Bloody Waters, begin their ascent to rock stardom, they are beset by a strange array of enemies. Has-been guitar heroes, popstar succubi, spell-slinging DJs, angry divas and killer angels— every occult freak and music industry player in LA wants something from them, whether it’ s a slice of their fame or a bite of their souls.

There’ s a lot more at stake than just a record deal— but what does the Devil really want, and how far will Clarice go to protect what’ s hers?

I hope you’ll check it out.
