Amazing Cover Art Reveal

A year ago, two bestselling authors had a dream. No, actually, a strange Twitter conversation about a girl in love with a spaceship.


Out of that spun a vibrant, exciting, Guardians of the Galaxy meets Star Wars style adventure, and we can’t wait for you meet Zara Cole and Nadim. In partnership with our publisher Katherine Tegen Books and HarperCollins, we’re so thrilled to present to you a cover sure to launch a thousand epic space journeys (or at least, a three-book series):


Jacket copy:

Zara Cole has been in and out of New Detroit’s rehab facilities for treatment of her antisocial disorder. There’s no adjusting Zara’s attitude, though. A painful past has made her stronger than most, which is why she chose life in the Zone instead moving with her family to Mars. In her eyes, living inside a dome isn’t much better than a prison cell.


Still, when Zara commits a crime that has her running scared, jail might be exactly where she’s headed. Instead Zara is recruited into the Honors, an elite team of humans selected by the Leviathan–a race of sentient alien ships—to explore the outer reaches of the universe as their passengers.


Zara seizes the chance to flee Earth’s dangers, but when she meets Nadim, the alien ship she’s assigned to along with fellow Honor Beatriz, Zara starts to feel at home for the first time, along with a devotion she’s never experienced before. Yet nothing—not her Honors training or her street smarts—could have prepared her for the dark, dangerous truths that lurk behind the glitter of starlight.


Honor Among Thieves is the first book in a daring new sci-fi series by bestselling authors Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre.

An excerpt from Honor Among Thieves:


I feel the stars.


Energy pulses against my skin, murmuring secrets about this small galaxy, about orbits and alignments and asteroids streaming in space. Impulse makes me want to dive and swim those currents, but I control these urges.


I shift my attention to the flutters of life within my skin.


Marko glows orange with crimson streaks. He is warm, always the easiest to find. Just now, he stands and stares at the blue-green orb swirling below us. I cannot swim down to see what he remembers of this place. The planet’s gravitational pull would break my bones. But he shows me flashes: smiling faces, a field of flowers, an old woman with eyes like slices of sky.


“I’ll miss you,” I tell him.


He starts, surprised to hear me, as if he’s ever truly alone. “Me too. It was a good run.”


He once told me that it’s strange when we talk; he thinks I should find him as insignificant as he does the bacteria in his stomach. But I have had time to acclimate to the strangers in my system. I safeguard the small voices, as is my privilege and duty. There will be more to my life, but only when I’ve proven myself.


The stars sing again, this time in strong, seductive harmony. I resist their melody, but the call is growing stronger.


Despite my passengers, I am empty in a way I cannot name. Marko tells me it is because our voyage is over; he calls this sadness. Perhaps I have learned this feeling from him. My first Honor gave me a human name, Nadim, and I have kept it safe, along with the other words and shapes and colors that shade my new existence. Like sadness.


I do not like this low orbit, but I must wait. I have been ordered to wait.


My new Honors will come.


About the authors:
Ann Aguirre is a New York Times & USA Today bestselling author with a degree in English Literature; before she began writing full time, she was a clown, a clerk, a voice actress, and a savior of stray kittens, not necessarily in that order. She grew up in a yellow house across from a cornfield, but now she lives in sunny Mexico with her husband, children, and various pets. She likes books, emo music, and action movies. She writes all kinds of genre fiction for adults and teens.


Rachel Caine is a New York Times & USA Today bestselling author with a degree in Accounting, believe it or not. She’s been a corporate communications executive, an insurance investigator, and a professional musician, among many other things, and has a specialty interest in pet lizards. She grew up on the move in a military family, and now lives in Fort Worth, Texas with her husband, artist/comic historian R. Cat Conrad. She apparently shares a brain with Ann Aguirre, because they like all the same stuff, and as Honor Among Thieves proves, their styles mesh seamlessly. She, like Ann, writes all manner of fiction (including adult suspense), but has a special place in her heart for YA.


Between them, they’ve published about 90 novels to date.

Announcement: Utopiacon

As of now, I’m no longer accepting appearances in the US and will not be traveling there in the foreseeable future. Here’s the email I sent, regarding my withdrawal. 

This matter has been ​weighing heavily on my heart since the election in November, and I have ruminated on great length as to what the right decision is regarding my appearance at Utopiacon in June. I’ve always done my utmost to keep my commitments, but after much reflection, I must cancel this particular engagement. It is no reflection on the efforts or welcome offered by you or your staff. I truly wish I could be there.

However, there are two issues that have resulted in my decision not to attend. First, I have been a vocal opponent of 45’s regime, to the level that I fear having my personal electronics searched and seized and being detained on arrival. I also fear vanishing into the bowels of the US and being prevented from returning to my family. These may not be realistic fears, but since I have permanent residency abroad and am pursuing dual citizenship, I really don’t know how I will greeted on my arrival. In fact, even before 45’s election, I have been detained as a suspected drug mule, simply because I choose to live in Mexico. Given the current atmosphere, I am not optimistic about how well I will be treated.

Next, my second concern is this–I may not experience any trouble at all, because I am white, educated, female, and relatively affluent. In solidarity with immigrants and Muslims currently being persecuted, I cannot in good conscience attend events in a country that treats them so. Thus, my decision to withdraw is also political activism. I very much regret disappointing you, your staff, and my readers–when none of you have done a solitary wrong–but I hope everyone will understand my motivations. I am choosing this course after significant soul searching and again offer my apologies, along with profound regret that Hillary wasn’t elected, because if she had been, I’d be there with bells on.

Thrilled to Announce

My new series, Ars Numina!

I’ve been teasing you with this revelation for a while, seems like since May or so, which is when the idea first took root.  But it takes time for a project to pass through various stages of completion, and happily, we are there! So without further ado, let me tell you about the secret project I’ve been working on. I haven’t written any romance since my NA series, and I miss it. So I hope you’re eager to read some paranormal sexytimes because I am all over it.

Welcome to the dangerous, delicious world of Ars Numina–with the fae Eldritch, ferocious Animari, and brutal Golgoth fighting for their happy endings. If you love paranormal romance and shapeshifters, this series is for you. The most notable aspect is that there are no human characters. They do exist elsewhere in the world, but these stories are set exclusively in paranormal territories. The books are both futuristic and alt-world, with enough intrigue, passion and action to sate an eager appetite.

The fae Eldritch have inspired elven and fairy lore over the years. They have strange tech and an ancient culture. A long-lived people, they are elegant and inscrutable to other supernatural powers. They also train an order of legendary assassins, known as Noxblades, and their ultimate goal is unknown.  The Animari are shifters with three main groups in power: the Ash Valley pride (cats), the Burnt Amber clan (bears), and the Pine Ridge pack (wolves). There are other shifters, but they are not part of the official alliance, and therefore lack political leverage. The Golgoth are the most feared, known to be brutal and relentless in their drive to conquest, and when they transform, it is into draconian or monstrous reptilian forms.

Tentatively, I have planned a six book arc, each about a different couple. The titles follow:

The Leopard King  (On sale at $2.99 during preorder period and release week only)
The Demon Prince
The Wolf Lord
The Shadow Warrior
The War Priest
The Jaguar Knight

And here is the blurb for book one!

Proud. Imperious. Impassioned.

Until three years ago, those words applied to Dominic Asher, the leader of Ash Valley. His family has ruled the feline branch of the Animari for hundreds of years, guiding the pride through perilous times. Unspeakable loss drove him into seclusion, a feral beast nobody can tame. Now he’s wrecked, a leopard king in exile, and he wants nothing more than to die.

Fierce. Loyal. Determined.

Fortunately for Dom, those words still apply to Pru Bristow, his dead mate’s best friend. She’s had her heart broken too, but she never quits. With the conclave approaching, alliances with the Pine Ridge pack and Burnt Amber clans on the verge of collapse, she’s prepared to do whatever it takes to drag their leader back, before his second can start a war.

At best theirs seems like a desperate alliance, but when their mate bond turns hot and fierce, there’s no end to the questions and the doubts. Neither of them expects to fall in love. But sometimes people don’t know what they’re looking for until they find it.

Here’s the cover art reveal!! A thousand thanks to Kanaxa.

thedemonprince_digital_largeHere’s what an early reader had to say about book 1:

“I really enjoyed the story. It was exactly where my current reading glom is. Lots of detailed world building like I’d find in UF but all the romance, sex, and HEA I need. It gave me the same happy feels as Nalini Singh’s Psy Changeling series.”

I’m so excited about this project and hope you are too! Now for the most important part… the first book will be out on…

Pre-Order Public Enemies and Get a Bonus Short Story

PublicEnemies-144x215Public Enemies, Book 2 in the Immortal Game Trilogy, will be out on 8/4/15. I hope you’re excited to see what’s next for Edie and Kian.

As an author, I really appreciate when readers pre-order my books. So, I’ve decided to offer a special thank you to anyone that pre-orders Public Enemies in the form of an early look at Bad Omen Birds, a Harbinger short story.




Here’s all you have to do:

  1. Pre-Order Public Enemies
  2. Fill Out this (very short) Form

Pre-Order Here:

Amazon | B&N | BAM | Indiebound | Vroman’s | Book Depository | Powell’s

Also on ibooks!



Learn the rules of the game and then play better than anyone else.

Through a Faustian bargain, Edie Kramer has been pulled into the dangerous world of the Immortal Game, where belief makes your nightmares real. Hungry for sport, the leaders are always raising the stakes. To them, human lives are less than nothing, just pieces on a board.

Because of her boyfriend Kian’s sacrifice, she’s operating under the mysterious Harbinger’s aegis, but his patronage could prove as fatal as the opposition. Raw from her deepest loss, she’s terrified over the deal Kian made for her. Though her very public enemies keep sending foot soldiers – mercenary monsters committed to her destruction – she’s not the one playing under a doom clock. Kian has six months, unless Edie can save him. And this is a game she can’t bear to lose.

YA book announcement

vanguard-temp-coverIn case you don’t follow social media, I wanted to talk about my new book deal. If you scroll down in that article, you’ll see that I’ve sold a novel set in the Razorland series. This isn’t a sequel in the traditional sense; rather I would call it a companion novel, like the novella I wrote about Thimble and Stone. 

This story will center around Tegan of the Staff aka Doctor Tegan, and the warrior-poet who loves her, James Morrow. Gavin will probably also join their adventures and possibly Millie, the girl who saved the world and didn’t even know it. Szarok may put in an appearance too and maybe one of the small folk. I have in mind this will be an epic sort of river / high seas adventure that will let me show you much more of the world than you saw even in Horde.

But Deuce and Fade deserve their rose-wreathed cottage, so even if they show up, it’ll be as secondary characters who live in Rosemere, like Stone and Thimble. This book is slated for release in Spring of 2017 and I hope you’re excited for it. As for me, I’m nervous about venturing back into this world again, but I’m tremendously chuffed, too–that you loved Tegan and Morrow so much, you begged so hard for their story and their happy ending. 

This isn’t the last story I’ll write in the Razorland world but it is the last one that could be considered dystopian. You’ll understand more as time wears on. 

Feel free to ask questions in comments if you have them, and please admire the lovely temporary cover made for this book by Nospheratt. Isn’t it amazing?! It will grace my site until we have actual art. (To be honest, if you added an arm behind the name plate in a clawed, torn sleeve, I would be THRILLED if that was my actual cover. That’s how great I think this is and so in line with the other books.) 

Oh, and to celebrate this sale, I’ll give away one copy of ANY of my books, released or coming soon. If it’s not out yet, I’ll preorder it for you. So comment away, yes, it’s international, and I’ll name the winner this time next week. 

ETA: BRANDY, commenter # 19, you have won! Congratulations.

I have the pleasure of hosting the talented Page Morgan, author of the  THE LOVELY & THE LOST.  Let’s get to know her better before I show you the good stuff, okay?

wp3030e4ac_05_06About Ms. Morgan, in her own words:I’m the author of the YA Gothic thriller THE BEAUTIFUL & THE CURSED, along with its sequel THE LOVELY & THE LOST. I’ve been intrigued by les grotesques ever since I came across an old, black-and-white photograph of a Notre Dame gargoyle keeping watch over the city of Paris. I wanted to tell that gargoyle’s story. Soon, the idea for The Beautiful & the Cursed was born. I live in New England with my husband and our three daughters, an English Pointer puppy, an arrogant cat, two cuddly bearded dragons, a bunch of chickens, and during the summer and fall, our neighbor’s two sweet horses.”

About THE LOVELY & THE LOST: Ingrid and Gabby Waverly moved to France expecting a quiet reprieve from London gossip, but the truth they face in their new home has a sharper–and deadlier–sting.

Paris is plagued by an underworld of demons and gargoyles who all seem to want something from the Waverly girls. Saving Ingrid’s twin, Grayson, from the fallen angel Axia nearly killed them. And they’re still being hunted–only this time, demons aren’t their only predators.

Ingrid’s blood is special: it bestows the power to command gargoyles. It’s an ability no other human has, and in the wrong hands, it could be used to send her cursed guardian, Luc, and his fellow Dispossessed to extinction. There are those who will do anything to get Ingrid’s blood–and they see no value in human life.

The Alliance has vowed to protect the Waverlys, and a new gargoyle has been assigned to guard their abbey home alongside Luc. But no one can watch over Ingrid, Gabby, and Grayson all the time–which means the three must learn to fight for themselves.

Because darkness follows the Waverlys. And sometimes darkness comes in the form you trust the most.

Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?


Now, let’s get to Ms. Morgan’s bonus content. You lucky readers get to check out this exclusive excerpt from THE WONDROUS AND THE WICKED, coming April 2015:

Ingrid waited until Marco had disappeared before turning around, slowly. She realized that she was afraid. It was ridiculous. She had nothing to fear from Luc, yet her pulse leaped and her breath caught in her throat when she saw him. He’d raked back his obsidian hair, and while Ingrid stood speechless he allowed his eyes to rove over her. They coasted hungrily from her messy chignon to her lips to her neck and bodice and then up again.

“You should have told me where you were,” she whispered.

Luc abruptly moved away, toward the open ballroom doors. “And now you know why I tried to keep you away.”

Ingrid followed, shivering uncontrollably. “I’m not afraid of Vincent.”

She knew Luc wouldn’t believe the lie, but it felt good to say it anyway. Of course she was afraid of him. He was an angry, powerful gargoyle and he’d just made a public vow to kill her.

Luc stopped in the center of the ballroom, underneath the giant chandelier hanging crookedly from the ceiling. He stood motionless on the cracked and stained tiles, the dance floor covered in filth, debris, and mouse droppings. The rotted piano had lost one of its legs and crashed into a tilt, yellowed sheet music scattered over the floor around it like leaves.

“He wants you dead,” Luc said, his back to her. He wore the same clothes he’d always worn, the loose alabaster linen shirt and tan canvas trousers. He looked the same and sounded the same, and yet there was something different about him. Ingrid didn’t know what it was.

He turned to face her, the fading sun setting the ballroom in a hazy gilded light.

“And he wants me out of the way so he can be elder, unchallenged. What better way to do that than to prove to all of the Dispossessed that I’ve taken a human?”

Ingrid’s stomach bottomed out as she realized what she’d done.

“Oh,” she whispered, pulling back a step. “Oh, no. Luc—”

She’d entered gargoyle common grounds and defended Luc, attacking his opposition with her demon gift. And just moments after Vincent had accused Luc of falling in love with a human. With her.

“I gave him what he wanted.” She buried her face into her palms. “I’m so sorry, Luc. I wasn’t thinking. I heard him firing up the other gargoyles and I knew they’d try to attack you and rip you apart like what happened to René and I—”

Tears stung at her eyes, and she was glad she’d covered her face. She hated when her lips and chin quivered in the effort to fight off a sob.

“Ingrid.” Luc had come to stand directly in front of her. He pulled her hands from her face, but she turned her head, not wanting to see how disappointed he was right then.

He brought their entwined hands down between them, level with his hips, and tugged her forward. With his lips at her ear, Luc whispered, “It’s not that I wasn’t impressed.”

She felt the brush of his lips against her earlobe and Ingrid forgot her embarrassment. She forgot the rundown ballroom and her dwindling time before Marco came to fetch her.

“But don’t risk yourself for me again,” Luc said, his breath hot against her ear. She angled her head toward him, wanting nothing more than his warmth.

“You risked yourself for me,” she said. “By finding me in the park. Coming for me when Vincent could have been watching your every move.”

He sighed, nuzzling her temple before letting one of her hands go. He stepped back.

“Have you healed?” he asked, rubbing his thumb along the center of her palm. “I wish I could know without asking.”

That was what was different about him. He couldn’t sense her. She didn’t understand how, but she felt the loss of that connection too.

“I’m fine now,” she assured him.

He kept hold of her hand as he started walking, avoiding a pile of old sheets clumped together in the middle of the dance floor.

Luc kept on toward the grand, Rococo-styled double doors that led into the building’s main corridor. She didn’t know where he thought they could go with the few minutes they had left together. Ingrid wanted to follow Luc through the house anyway, perhaps up the stairs to Lennier’s rooms. She wanted to stay with Luc in this decrepit, timeless place while the rest of Paris dealt with Axia’s imminent return.

Which books would you like to win?

The Big Mortal Danger Contest

It’s almost release time for MORTAL DANGER, the first book in my new YA trilogy about bullies, beauty, prep school, and revenge. In case you haven’t seen it yet, the cover is absolutely amazing.


I love the infinity symbol. In honor of the release of MORTAL DANGER (coming 8/5/14), I’m doing an Infinity Symbol Scavenger Hunt for the entire month of July.  Your mission will be to find and capture (take a picture of) any infinity symbols you can find or create.  The more creative you get, the more points you will earn.  Here’s an example of one I found in Vancouver, Canada.

Mortal Danger Scavenger Hunt 

I need your help in spreading the word about the scavenger hunt and the release of MORTAL DANGER. It will help if you include links, ie show us what you’re doing in comments. Here’s what I’m talking about:

  • Create your own infinity symbol art +2
  • Tweet your pic of an infinity symbol with #MortalDanger +2
  • Facebook wall post +2
  • Blog about Mortal Danger & the Infinity Symbol Scavenger Hunt +3
  • Pre-Order Mortal Danger +5
  • Pre-Order Mortal Danger as a gift for a friend +5
  • Random, acceptable non-spammy idea on the part of the street team member (# entries negotiable). Like renting a billboard and painting a replica of the cover on it. I’d give 100 for that. Heh. And any creative idea you come up with, I’ll handle on a case-by-case basis, and assign a number of entries at that time.

That said, I don’t support or authorize spamming. Tweeting it 40 times a day doesn’t earn you 80 entries. That will only annoy people, not make them interested in the book. So there is a CAP on tweet entries. No more than five tweet entries, over the course of the month, will be accepted, and those should be spaced out, not done on the same day. It’s up to you to track your entries and follow the rules, and we’re operating on the honor system. However, I will look at the winners’ social media footprint, so if you claim to have done something online to spread the word, there should be a record of it. Anyone who enters this contest and spams up the internet will be disqualified and permanently banned from all of my contests going forward. I want to get the word out, not bother anyone.

Which brings me to my next point. You’re competing to win a chance to fly to one of my tour locations and hang out with me. (Or, you can choose to win a laptop if you hate to travel and don’t want to come see me.) This isn’t a random drawing; the hardest working person will walk away with the grand prize. But so that everyone doesn’t work their butts off in vain, only to be outdone by someone who has an uncle who runs a skywriting business, there will also be random winners. So let me list the loot below:

Grand prize: laptop, or a trip to meet me on tour (value not to exceed $800, would include round trip airfare & 1 night at a hotel)

The second hardest-working entrant can earn:

  • Manuscript Critique from Liz Szabla (one-read, general notes & comments on marketability, no guarantee to publish)

Random prizes:

  • Skype visit with me
  • Branded flash drive containing my backlist
  • Original limited edition “Mortal Danger” as movie poster
  • Mirror compact with infinity symbol & my brand
  • Infinity symbol necklace
  • Signed books from me & other Fierce Read authors

Is this giveaway international? Yes. However, if you win the Grand Prize and you live outside the US, or if the trip would otherwise surpass $800, joining me on tour won’t be possible. In that case, you’ll receive the laptop.  All the other prizes can be mailed internationally.

This contest runs until July 31st.  By August 12th, I’ll pick the winners. Keep a tally in comments, please. Every new picture you take or new place you share, come back and report what it was, plus the # of entries you earned. Then on the last day of the contest, you will need to add them up and leave a final comment. Obviously, this contest requires some effort and follow-up, but the prizes are worth it.

I hope we can get the word out about Mortal Danger. Now go out there and find those infinity symbols.

No purchase necessary, void where prohibited, limitations may apply, all the usual disclaimers.

Then she moves into a new apartment and meets the taciturn yet irresistible guy in 1B….

Daniel Tyler has grown up too fast. Becoming a single dad at twenty turned his life upside down—and brought him heartache he can’t risk again.

But one night, Nadia’s and Ty’s paths cross, and soon they can’t stay away from each other.

As Long As You Love Me


Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. She has her reasons—missing her family, losing her college scholarship. But then there’s the reason Lauren can’t admit to anyone: Rob Conrad, her best friend’s older brother.

Football prowess and jaw-dropping good looks made Rob a star in high school. Out in the real world, his job and his relationships are going nowhere. He’s the guy who women love and leave, not the one who makes them think of forever—until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her.

Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with.

The Shape of My Heart


Some people wait decades to meet their soul mate. Courtney Kaufman suspects she met hers in high school—only to lose him at seventeen. Since then, Courtney’s social life has been a series of meaningless encounters, though she’s made a few close friends along the way. Especially her roommate, Max Cooper, who oozes damaged bad-boy vibes from every pore.
Max knows about feeling lost—he’s been on his own since he was sixteen. Now it’s time to find out if he can ever go home again, and Courtney’s the only one he trusts to go with him. But the trip to Providence could change everything….
It started out so simple. One misfit helping another. Now Max will do anything to show Courtney that for every heart that’s ever been broken, there’s another that can make it complete.

“New Adult storytelling with an elegant and refined voice that is entirely unique in the genre.”
