Sample or buy now: Kindle | Paperback

The Alignment is a contemporary fantasy series about two rival families and the people caught between them. If you haven’t read the first book, the Kindle version will be free on Amazon January 19-23. This series is very sequential so the books should be read in order.

I’m incredibly proud of THE CATALYST. It’s a tight package of a story that moves as fast as its position in the series demands. We’re nearing the climax here and things are tense. TB is feeling the strain and taking it exactly as you’d expect. Liv? Well, let’s just say she’s losing it too.

Thanks so much to my talented team: editor Max Dobson, proofreader Debra Argosy, and the artists at Damonza.com. This book would not be what it is without them.

I hope you like THE CATALYST! It’s being released at $2.99 as a thank-you to the fans of the series who’ve been waiting patiently. Price will go up soon, so get it now!

THE CATALYST
Book Four of The Alignment Series

Trey returns from another visit to the Moore estate with nothing but more anger and less room in his head to stow it. Old coping mechanisms no longer work. Not with a newborn in the mix. And Liv, who’s had enough.

Liv has found what’s missing: a memento of her past she’s worked hard to forget. It unearths memories of a different man—a stable partner, a loving father. As it draws her in, Trey’s new anger drives her away.

Desperate to find Liv, Trey digs into his arsenal of magic for a dark power he’s never used. He shouldn’t use—he has to use. What he doesn’t expect is who that power lures: a visitor, with answers for Liv, complications for Trey, and a claim on their daughter almost as threatening as the Moores’. And what that power creates: a weapon, perfectly crafted to target all who share his blood. A vulnerability placed upon their daughter. And the perfect way for the Moores to destroy them all.

THE CATALYST Update – December 22

Happy Winter Solstice one day late! While the Bevans (and the Moores) were in the woods paying tribute to the new season, I was working with my cover artist and formatter to put the finishing touches on ebook formatting and paperback cover art. I’m still waiting on these last changes, which still might need tweaking. With only a week left in the year this simply isn’t enough time. So, I’m sorry to report this book will not be published this year. I worked very hard to make it happen, but so much of the final stage is out of my control.

I do have a date though. Expected publication for THE CATALYST is January 16, 2017.

I can can give you something else, too. The book’s blurb. :)

THE CATALYST Update, Plus a Giveaway

Lots of progress on THE CATALYST since the last post! Proofreading is complete on draft one of the paperback interior. The formatter is applying final changes now. Ebook formats are next but should be quick. I think we can measure the time in weeks now, and I’m feeling really good about this book. I think it will be worth the wait. :)

I feel like I should apologize, though, or warn readers… because it’s nonstop page-turning craziness. Trigger warning for one catastrophe after another and some serious bad behavior from one difficult hero. I can’t control him. I tried. It’s a lost cause. But makes for some good reading, I hope. :)

THE CATALYST Update – November 20

Editing and proofreading are behind us. I’d have a celebratory drink right now if I wasn’t headed to bed. I guess I shouldn’t really say proofreading is behind us, since the final, agonizing proofread of formatted paperback and two ebook formats is coming very soon.

The end of 2016 is near but I’m not worried. This book will be published this year. Yes. Yes it will. Do I sound convincing?

THE CATALYST Update – September 22

Happy Autumnal Equinox! A day of equal night and day, when the sun rises due east and sets due west…and when THE CATALYST has been sent off to my editor for round one.

I’ve also sent the book’s info to my cover artist to get the cover started. I can’t wait to see what they come up with. It’s a jaw-dropping surprise every single time.

There are only three months left in 2016. I’m not sure that’s enough time to get this book finished but I’m going to be as hard-headed as TB and as calmly optimistic as Liv and power ahead believing I can still get it published this year.

THE CATALYST Update – August 28

I’m almost finished with my revisions. Starting today I’m taking a break to get some distance from the book before I go back in for the final changes. I also started working on the back cover blurb. It’s coming together, one version morphing into another until I finally have a version I can work with. I have less than a month before the manuscript is due to my editor.
