Release Day!! The Core: Equilibrium I

YAY! I love release day. You work hard and slave away on not only coming up with a good, well-rounded story, but getting it in a readable format through editing and gathering advice. Then comes to the formatting and cover design! So much to do to get ready and yet – here it is. Another one of my creations into the world. Craziness!

I’d love for you to check out my new release, The Core: Equilibrium I under my pen name Kate Thomas. Information and links are below! Hope you love it as much as I do.

The CoreThe Core, Equilibrium I
New Adult Paranormal
Author: Kate Thomas
Release: TODAY!! Feb 12th!!

Amazon ~ Kobo ~ B&N

There’s something strange about David, something that goes beyond the way he makes Ellie feel. He’s wealthy, poised, and a complete enigma. With nothing to lose but her heart, Ellie goes in search of the truth—a search that leads her down an eye-opening path that reveals secrets about the world she thought she knew.

The world’s order is held in careful balance, the essence of good and evil tilting the scale. When the fabric of reality is stripped away, Ellie is forced to make a decision to follow the path David’s constructed before her or simply walk away. The Core is missing and someone must step up and stand between the light and darkness, holding each back and maintaining equilibrium.

Excerpt:

“You do realize that there is absolutely no chance of us actually getting away with this, right?” Ellie whispered loudly in the small confines of the car.

“There’s no need to whisper. We’re in a car by ourselves, Elle.” Jacob kept his eyes on the car in front of them, the large figure of his sister’s boss moving languidly from the Lincoln to cross the busy street. “Besides, it’s the holidays, and it’s far too busy in this neighborhood for Mr. Kelley to notice us.”

A soft sigh resounded beside him, and sounds of fidgeting filled the air. Ellie was rarely the type to be nervous or overcome with emotion of any sort. If anyone was capable of a stakeout operation, it was most certainly his twin sister. She was only a few minutes older than him, but years ahead in maturity and intellectual curiosities, to be sure. He smiled as he felt the overwhelming heat of her stare. Paying her no attention would be more fun than giving in to her well-founded fits of worry.

“I know you know I’m looking at you, Jacob.” Her punch was much too light to be anything but playful.

He glanced her way only briefly, a smirk on his mouth his only response. He was used to responding non-verbally.

“It’s not me you should be watching, but your illustrious boss. I didn’t come out in the freezing cold to spend my night in a car, hanging out with my bratty older sister. I came to see if I could help you get a few answers. Pay attention!” He turned the heater up, and the previously fogged window cleared, showing a row of beautifully decorated mansions.

Christmas was in full effect on Ebert Street, and the wealthy citizens of the neighborhood spent loads outdoing their friends and family. Their study for the evening was a Mr. David Kelley, Ellie’s boss for the last two years. He was an investor of other people’s money, a financial advisor by some standards and a bookie by others.

“I am paying attention, but I don’t know what you expect to find by sitting outside of a luxurious home in the middle of winter. It’s the holidays, so yes, David goes to parties and wines and dines the rich and famous. What did you think we would find tonight?” She added softly, “I didn’t even ask you to come.”

Jacob turned to face his sister. “You most certainly did ask me to come. You’ve been bitching for the last two years about your boss’s oddities, and it was you that wanted to start looking into his personal life.”

“Not his personal life, but I wanted to see what it is that he does with his time.” She turned to face him as well, a defiant look spreading across her features. “How does someone make more money than God and never really DO anything? Besides, you’ve been wanting a reason to see the Christmas lights in Westchester for years.”

“Christmas lights, pff …” He rolled his eyes. “I want to hear it or I’m leaving.”

“Hear what?” Confusion spread across her features.

“I want to hear that you asked me to come, and that this is your operation.”

“Don’t be ridiculous, Jacob.”

He turned to face the windshield and moved to put the car in reverse before her hand clamped down on his shoulder. “Fine. Fine. You’re such a child, but if I need to say it, I will. I wanted you to help me figure out who my boss really is and what he’s up to. There, I said it.”

Jacob put his hands in his lap and looked back at his sister. “Why?”

“Why what?”

He sighed before continuing. “Why did you want me to help you? You’ve been with Mr. Kelley for the last two years. Why now?”

Ellie began fidgeting again, her eyes moving from his face to focus somewhere in her lap as her fingers brushed by one another. She didn’t speak for a minute, and he didn’t give her comfort or afford her any alternative besides answering him. He’d been pulled into this unfounded operation, and he deserved a reason for the sudden change in her behavior. She glanced at him and then exhaled loudly, as if realizing that she was, in fact, going to have to share some information that she must’ve wanted to keep to herself.

“Fine. I wanted to know what he was doing because he’s so mysterious, and I’ve yet to figure out what it is that he does. Not to mention that every time I see him I’m reminded of how unbelievably attractive he is. Maybe my only motive is that I just wanted to sit here and stare at him.”

“Liar. Sell that crap to someone else. Tell me the truth or my car and I are outta here.”

“What? He’s hot!” She paused and received a look from her brother that pushed her to continue. “God, you’re so difficult at times. I would totally do this with you if you asked, and I wouldn’t give a rat’s ass why you wanted me to.”

“That’s a lie too. You’d never do this in a million years with me, and you’d most likely call me creepy for wanting to do it. Enough … why are we here? What did you see? Or did you hear something?”

“Both. A few days ago I came in an hour early, and the smell of Clorox hit me in the face like nothing you’ve ever smelled. I dropped my things quietly and walked down to Mr. Kelley’s office, peeking in to see if everything was alright.” She paused and looked at Jacob and then back toward her hands, her large chestnut gaze filled with foreign emotion. “He was only in his slacks, and parts of his chest and back were covered in what looked like blood. There was blood on his floor and a bit on the walls.”

“Good God, Elle. Did you call the police? Was he hurt, or did someone get hurt?”

“That’s the weird part. I never saw anything but the blood and, being a bit overwhelmed by it, I simply left and called in sick that day. I wasn’t sure what to do about it. I can’t imagine him hurting someone, since he’s such a pillar of the community and such. Besides, what if it wasn’t blood, or what if he’d cut his finger or something?”

“Cut his finger? Don’t you think the amount of blood or whatever would be slightly less than what you’re describing from a papercut? Just because he gives to the people around him doesn’t mean he’s not a monster underneath all that Daddy Warbucks stuff.”

She nodded and sunk down in her seat as the large figure jogged back from the house toward his car. The man stopped before getting into the back seat of the Lincoln and focusing for a minute on Jacob’s car, the tilt of his head and bend of his neck telling Jacob one thing—he wasn’t looking at Jacob, but at Ellie.

“We need to go,” she whispered and covered her face with her small hands.

Destroyed, Soul Keeper II RELEASED!

Oh my goodness I’m stoked to share this next book with my readers. I had SO MUCH fun writing book two because the plot went to places I couldn’t imagine. There were moments that were wrapped in Greek Myth and others where I felt like I was visiting Diagonally in Harry Potter. So much fun. I think my new favorite character has to be Eros, the God of Love.

Check out the new book on Amazon and pick up a copy today!!

http://www.amazon.com/Destroyed-Soul-Keeper-Book-2-ebook/dp/B00P9UOFYS/ref=asap_B00N51UAO2_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1416078768&sr=1-2

From the second book in the Soul Keeper Series…

 

Now I lay me down to sleep,

Whom shall I trust my soul to keep?

If I should die before I wake,

I leave to fate my soul to take.

 

The seal has been broken and the Soul Keeper Prophecy set in motion. Marcus and Nicolas are battling for the heart of one woman, Pandora’s only daughter; however, not everyone is playing by the rules. With interference from both sides of the lines and too many deities with hidden agendas, the trio must take matters into their own hands and look for another ending, one that removes control from fate.

Can they find the missing page from the prophecy that has the ability to change everything?

Will the new stranger they’ve been given as a guide assist or mislead them?

Will Samantha make a decision on who it is that she truly loves, saving one and destroying the other?

What if her choice is no choice at all?

Cover Reveal: Sing For Me

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00007]

Sing For Me by Gracie Madison 
Publication date: January 23rd 2015
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance
Designed by Berto Designs
Synopsis:

Madeline Noel fled war-torn Heaven to hide within the mortal world, but the blessing that could protect her from evil is the holy realm’s forbidden power.

As a talented soprano for the Eden Theatre Company, Madeline hides among prima donnas and tone-deaf flutists. Her perfect voice may entertain audiences, but a careless laugh may shatter glass, and her greatest scream can kill. To control her unrestrained voice, the angels forbid Madeline from embracing the emotions that strengthen her song. Anger. Fear.

Love.

The demon-hunter Damascus vows to defend Madeline from Hell’s relentless evil, but he cannot protect her from her own feelings. Though they deny their dangerous attraction, her guardian becomes her greatest temptation.

Surrendering to desire may awaken the gift suppressed within Madeline’s soul, and neither Heaven nor Hell will allow such absolute power to exist.

Pre-Sale for Destroyed, SKII

It’s done! The pre-release sale is up and available for Destroyed, Soul Keeper II if you’re interested. I have the links below and am UBER excited about where our characters have taken the story.

Book II is built upon the relationships that I established in book I, but with these fresh new pages the plot moves quickly and captivates your heart and mind as you get swept up in the emotions and drama of all that faces these, dare I say, FOUR teenagers. We’re adding a new girl to the mix to see how she fares and I might say she wins the hearts of a few familiar faces and holds her own. I’m excited to see what you think of her – her beautiful backstory one for Disney to consider picking up in their next tale!

I hope you enjoy the book and know that after a few days off from life in general, I plan to start writing book III next week. I assume it will be the last book in the series, but then again I assumed this whole series would actually just be one book, so who knows what might happen. 🙂

Grab your pre-released copy today and pick up where you left off with my beloved tale when you put book I down, hopefully with a grumble and a bit of good-old-fashioned angst.
