What Character Made the Cover of Demonslayer 3?

I'd say I can't believe it's been 3 months since my last blog post here, but I'd be lying. Where have I been since April? Making a brand-new website that's user friendly and easy to read. Creating better free goodies for those who sign up for my email newsletter.

Finishing Demonslayer Book 3, Girl with the Strawberry Tattoo, which I'll publish in the next week or two. With a title like that, only one character could go on the cover, and here she is:

You haven't read much about Sheila yet, but if you like Jen's outspoken humor, you'll love Sheila's wacky wisdom.

I'm immensely proud of this book. It finishes out the first Demonslayer trilogy with one big arc and manages to be one-part romantic comedy, one-part street fight. If book 2 was a quiz for Joshua's moral compass, book 3 is the test.

Cover Reveal for Demonslayer 2: Always Hurt the Ones You Love

The team over at Deranged Doctor Design has been killing it for me the last month and a half.  Because of their speed, dedication, and incredible talent, I don't even have to show you the cover I designed myself.  I can jump straight into the 2nd installment of Joshua's adventures in Ashton:

I'm in love with this cover, and I think the title sets it up perfectly. Lots of characters are going to get hurt in different ways. After how good things got in book 1, remember: the only constant is change.

Stay tuned for book 2 coming out in the next few weeks!


New Cover Reveal for Demonslayer Book 1

As my Facebook and newsletter fans already know, I've started teaming up with Deranged Doctor Design to put professional covers on my books.  I've had 2 redone so far, and I'm ecstatic to reveal the new cover for Demonslayer's first (free!) installment, Every Hero Has Demons!

They're an awesome, talented team to work with.  I look forward to putting out better quality books than ever before.  The cover for the next Demonslayer installment is in the works, and that ebook should be available by the end of April.

Demonslayer's problems start here, but they don't end here!


Inside Demonslayer: Talisman, Real Name Unknown

There are a lot of unknowns about Talisman. The questions start when Joshua and Lana first meet him and Harbinger.

¿QuĂ© quieren ustedes?” Harbinger muttered, her irritation clear in any language.
The young man stepped up to her side. “What do you want?” he asked in a much more easygoing tone.
“What are you, her translator?” Demonslayer asked him.

And nobody really gets a clear answer to that. Are Harbinger and Talisman friends? Distant relatives? Coworkers? Just causing havoc together?

Chris Colfer could play the perfect Talisman. (Photo courtesy of Twitter.)

Which raises another question. Is Talisman even causing any problems, or does he just accompany Harbinger while she creates chaos?

Talisman has literally 2 lines in Demonslayer serial #1, Every Hero Has Demons. He translates for Harbinger, and later, he introduces himself.

But his presence and his passiveness haunt Joshua and Lana as much as Harbinger’s rage does. Why doesn’t he speak up more? Why doesn’t he use his power more?

Talisman’s power seems to hold the most untapped potential out of the four of them. Like a much-needed good-vibes charm, Talisman can spread empathy by transferring one person’s feelings into somebody else. He could use his gift to make an abuser feel what they inflict on their victims, but why isn’t he?

And is he too young to find himself caught in the middle of all this violence and confusion?

Talisman’s a gentle soul for sure. What sides of his personality hide in him is another question only time can answer.

If you still need to check out serial #1, visit the Demonslayer page and grab it for FREE where you most like to download books. Already acquainted with the series? Do you think Talisman will turn out to be a villain or a hero?
