species-proof-2 Species
Louise Bohmer & K.H. Koehler

About: The world is weird. Leigh had no idea how much so until she gets attacked by a vampire-like… something. And now she’s one of them.

What’s worse, absolutely none of the usual rules apply. The Species, as they are called, operate in a shadowy underworld of gothic debauchery, secretly controlling almost every part of human society.

And then there’s Aidan… one of the most powerful, troubled, and beautiful of the Aristocrats. Leigh could fall hard for the guy, but then she uncovers a massive, global conspiracy by the Aristocrats to turn the human race into cattle and the other Subspecies into slaves.

There’s a civil war coming. And if Leigh and Aidan can’t stop it, then it’s the humans who will pay the ultimate price.

If you like action-packed urban fantasy, pulse-pounding paranormal romance, and an unforgettable adventure, then this novel is for you!

Leap into the world of magic and corruption. Get your copy of Species today!

A Deity in Therapy, For the Love of Art, and What Kind of Monster? originally appeared in Flashshot Magazine.


A Deity in Therapy

kozzi-woman_with_black_dress_and_tiara_iron_gothic_fantasy_shapes_cath-1973x1925 Nyx spread her cloak of starlight across the therapist’s couch then settled her raven head against the leather arm.

“Why would one as old as you need a mortal’s help?” The doctor scrawled a note in his journal.

She laid a hand made of midnight clouds against her brow. “When you are the mother of many discordant deities, it tends to wear you down. My dark children clamor to me for advice. To settle their ceaseless disputes.”

The psychiatrist nodded.

“At least my offspring who roam the day are blessed. Such a carefree existence in the light.”


For the Love of Art

file0002109015389 She slid the hammer over his throat. A winter wind fluttered through the open window and plucked the hair from her cheek.

“Wouldn’t you prefer the blade?” Her face held the beauty of deep concern.

“No.” He smiled and kissed her slender wrist. “I want it to be messy. My death should be like my art—chaotic.”

Biting her ruby-painted lip, she drew the claw-head up and back over her head. “I’ll paint a cityscape with your brains, lover.”

“That will be nice, dear.” He nodded, before the blunt, round steel smashed his skull open.


What Kind of Monster?

file000313992053 Ramona shivered as she secured the manacle around his thick wrist. “No idea?”

He shook his bent head. “None.”

Water trickled down the dungeon walls and blended with his blue-black hair.

“The transformation begins.” She swallowed. “We’ll soon find out.”

“No, we won’t.” His voice sounded like metal dragged over broken glass.

Ramona watched as his body contorted into something between animal and human. “My god,” she cried. “What are you?”

“I wish I knew.” He leapt forward and broke the chains, then he tore her throat out.

It’s about time I got my butt over here to announce the special guest author for The Black Act: Witch Twins Saga Companion. This will be a free guide to the world, people, and faeries found within my dark fantasy novel. I’m very pleased to tell you the guest author will be Kate Jonez. Kate has written a fabulous essay called When Approaching the Fair Folk, and I know you’re going to love it.

This guide will also feature a glossary of terms, suggested fae reading, some creative commons fae pics, a The Black Act playlist, and some other goodies. I’m a bit behind in putting the guide together, and getting the paperback edition of The Black Act: Witch Twins Saga out, but I hope to have the companion released by end of June or July, and the paperback will be out soon. You can still pick up the ebook for 99 cents! Grab it quickly, because I’ll be raising the price to 2.99 soon.

Now, here’s some more info on Kate Jonez, Bram Stoker nominated author and chief editor at Omnium Gatherum.

Kate Winter14 Kate Jonez writes dark fantasy fiction. Her Bram Stoker ® Award nominated novel Candy House is available at Amazon in print and ebook. Ceremony of Flies is forthcoming from Dark Fuse July 2014.

She is also chief editor at Omnium Gatherum a small press dedicated to providing unique dark fantasy, weird fiction or literary horror in print and ebook formats. Three Omnium Gatherum books have been nominated for Shirley Jackson Awards.

Kate is a student of all things scary and when she isn’t writing she loves to collect objects for her cabinet of curiosities, research obscure and strange historical figures and photograph weirdness in Southern California where she lives with a very nice man and a little dog who is also very nice but could behave a little bit better.

testc7 The Black Act: Witch Twins Saga The Complete Serial Novel
Louise Bohmer
Introduction by M.R. Sellars

About: Only 99 cents for a limited time!

The history of a curse is filled with bloody battles, bitter hatred, and dark secrets.

Through five generations, ghosts of war haunt the wise women. When the rebellion of Glenna ends, their curse sleeps bound in the Tunnels of the Dead, waiting for its chance to re-awaken the war between the wood people and Dalthwein clans. Claire, a wise woman born in the valley of the fae, unwittingly helps it escape imprisonment, while her twin sister Anna receives psychic glimpses of ancient secrets she must unravel. With her scribe teacher Rosalind, she also struggles to uncover the reasons behind Claire’s strange behavior, ever escalating since the death of their guild mother, Grianne.

The Age of the Wise Women will cease if the curse does not end with Anna and Claire. Perhaps inheriting the mistakes of their ancestors and learning the truths of their identities will bring great suffering for these witch twins.

The Black Act Witch Twins Saga includes all six books in the serial novel, plus an introduction from award winning paranormal thriller author M.R. Sellars.
