Gideon's Spear Release Day

Happy Release Day to Colorado author Darby Karchut!  

Gideon's Spear (Book Two of The Adventures of Finn MacCullen) by Darby Karchut

For Finn, it's time to Irish up.

When a power-crazed sorceress and the neighborhood pack of beast-like goblins team up and threaten both his master and his friends, thirteen-year-old Finn (not Finnegan) MacCullen does the only thing an apprentice monster hunter can do: he takes the fight to the enemy. And woe to the foe he meets along the way.
"It's rare to find a sequel that raises the bar, but ye gods! Karchut has done it withGideon's Spear! Loads of action and humor, as well as a formidable new enemy, will keep readers turning the pages right to the end of Finn MacCullen's latest adventure."
                                 --Jeannie Mobley, author of Katerina's Wish
This is the second book in The Adventures of Finn MacCullen series. The first book, Finn Finnegan, can be purchased on  Amazon or Barnes & Noble.  Here's my review from last spring.

Darby Karchut is an award-winning author, teacher, and compulsive dawn greeter. She's been known to run in blizzards and bike in lightning storms. When not dodging death by Colorado, Darby writes urban fantasy for tweens, teens, and adults.

Milayna Cover Reveal

I'm excited to reveal the updated cover of "Milayna," Michelle Pickett's (author of PODs) paranormal romance. Thanks to the talented Robin Ludwig, Milayna has gotten a huge make-over and looks fantastic! She, along with her group of other demi-angels, are going to take the world by storm June 3!
cover by Robin Ludwig Designs, INC
From the bestselling author of PODs comes an unforgettable tale of action, intrigue, and following your heart in the midst of betrayal.
It's hard being good all the time. Everyone needs to be bad once in a while. But for seventeen-year-old Milayna, being good isn't a choice. It's a job requirement. And it's a job she can't quit. Born a demi-angel, Milayna steps in when danger and demons threaten the people around her, but being half angel isn't all halos and happiness. Azazel, Hell's demon, wants Milayna's power, and he'll do anything to get it. But he only has until her eighteenth birthday, after which she becomes untouchable. With the help of other demi-angels, Milayna thwarts the trouble Azazel sends her way. Fighting with her is Chay. He's a demi-angel who's sinfully gorgeous, and Milayna falls hard. But is Chay her true love...or her nemesis in disguise? Because when she learns of a traitor in her group, there's no one she can trust...not even the one she loves.

About the Author…
Michelle is a wife, mother, author, reader, although not always in that order. She is the bestselling author of PODs, which totally blows her mind. Some days she still has her husband pinch her to make sure it’s not a dream.
She loves Reese’s peanut butter cups and peanut butter M&Ms and eats way too many when she writes, can’t write without a hoodie, hates to cook but loves to watch cooking shows, and loves happy endings that give her butterflies for days. She writes across genres in the young adult and new adult age groups, and loves to hear from readers and other authors. So drop her a note and say, "Hey!"
