Spooky Reads, Amazon Preorder Woes


Dear friends,

Hugh here. I hope this newsletter finds you well. The weather is growing colder in the Northern hemisphere, a perfect time to grab a good book. Or, if your down under, perhaps a beach read!

Some News About Pre-Orders

Work continues on the next two Black Kat books: Star Crossed and The White King, which will be out this winter. If you have pre-ordered the books on Barnes & Noble, Apple, Google Play, or Kobo, you’ll notice the release dates have changed a little- merely a matter of weeks due to minor delays.

Unfortunately, Amazon is far less forgiving and punishes authors if they push a release back more than a month or two in a year. They will NOT allow us to change the date again on our own books (we tried), which means our considerable number of existing pre-orders will be cancelled this week.

I am terribly sorry for this inconvenience. However, the books will be available on Amazon as soon as they’re completed, so you won’t have to wait long. We’ll just have to list them again and will not be able to do any other pre-orders there for an entire year. It’s ridiculous, but that’s Amazon.

In the meantime, there are plenty of spooky reads to enjoy here. I hope you have a safe and Happy Halloween, and will send you another update next month!

Bodyguard Camryn MacKay goes to work like any other day. Except this isn’t any other day. When her client is attacked on the streets of Berlin by a strange man with unexplainable strength and reflexes, Cam is thrown headfirst into the veiled world—a magical world hidden from humans.

She’s paired up with Leon, an empath witch, and tasked with figuring out what happened. As an unwanted attraction grows between them, they must figure out why a vampire is immune to sunlight before it unravels the fragile peace between the veiled factions—pinning werecats against vampires, with the witches stuck in the middle. The veil has been parted, and Camryn never backs down from a challenge.





Remember that way arrogant, way famous chef I rescued? Turns out, he’s my soulmate.

Despite Bruce’s lack of a filter, he’s actually fitting into Region Two’s rhythm—cryptids stalking the city, my team stalking the cryptids.

So we’re blindsided when hit by a tragedy even Company resources can’t combat, one threatening to shatter the team and my heart.

Until I accidentally uncover an ultra-classified potential miracle. What the research points me to requires betraying the Company, my team, everything that makes me—me. But if this deal with the devil saves Bruce? I’m okay with the sacrifice.



Origin. An unwavering pledge… Unearths a buried truth… And alter the path to our future. If she can’t rescue her team, her mission is doomed, and a new future will never dawn. Mountain range 2022. Ultimately powerless against a foe she cannot fight, Tesh attempts a last-ditch rescue of the other Conclaves buried deep in the mountain before the Entity’s countdown blows everything to a smattering.

But caught by the Universal Pledge and a stealth mission going astray, her choices unravel the very future she must pave to prevent the end of her civilization. Stranded underground since they emerged from their chamber, Tesh’s actions are her very own, without the echo of DAINN’s powerful insights.

And for once, the powers of her mind do not plow a path to answers as her last rescue brings her to a discovery about their very existence, one which will ultimately define our future. Can she get the answers while preserving the very future she fights to pave?




When I find the dead body of a young witch, I somehow become a suspect in her murder. No one cares that I’m innocent—I’m a fae-witch mixed species, and in sleepy Agedale Town, that’s a crime in itself.

My only hope of exoneration is Gabi Pride, the newly appointed law enforcement of our supernatural town. The downside? She’s my ex-girlfriend. But proving my innocence is only the tip of the iceberg. If Gabi doesn’t act fast, the killer will take another witch’s life.

And next time it could be mine.



At Nobledark Academy, where light magic is used to keep dark magic contained, it’s good versus evil, right versus wrong. There is no in-between. Recent revelations, however, have shown me that not everything is so simple. Turns out, I’m not the daughter of the two witches who raised me. My real mother was a siren who gave her heart to a demon.

I can’t let anyone know who I really am. And I can’t trust the school’s biggest bully, one of the most dangerous bad boys, nor the two hottest brothers at Nobledark – even though I’m attracted to all of them. If I get too close, any one of them could find out I’m the heir to one of the siren queens. And that puts my life at risk. The safest place for me to hide from those who want to kill the heir is under the protection of Nobledark Academy. Where I am the enemy.
