Two years in a row, Kevin reached the preliminary ballot of the Bram Stoker Awards. (not an easy accomplishment)

 

Kevin is the contributor of a short story inside SLICES OF FLESH, which was nominated for best anthology. So officially he's a Bram Stoker Award nominated author. But he wants one of those statues all to himself.

This is a tale of a foul-mouthed, fairy princess after a fall from grace. She had it all: fame, fortune, beauty… and now she is being hunted for her wings.

Hidden under her skin, visible to most only as an ornate butterfly-wing tattoo, is SABRINA LONDON’s secret. She is an otherworldly being and she has the most beautiful pair of magical, energy-based wings you will ever see. Sabrina was living a perfect life until her boyfriend filmed a crime they were committing and the passionate sex they followed it up with—bad boy vampires tend to do that. So focused on romancing her, he lost his camera and when it was found months later, the video reached the Internet and Sabrina’s life was ruined. She lost everything except her friends.

MOSELLE ABDUL AZIZ AL GHURAIR was born of the Egyptian upper middle class. The young woman lived comfortably until a sudden change in political power made her family outcasts. While trying to flee the clutches of the new regime, her father made a dire decision, choosing death over torture or slavery—he killed his wife and child, but not before a curse was put upon them that would make Moselle return undead. Now, the sex-starved mummy-girl lives a life of leisure. Lonely and a bit bored with her immortality, her newest obsession, a human named Jackson, and friend Sabrina are the only things that keep her entertained.

ONE SMOKING HOT FAIRY TAIL is the story of otherworldly beings: fairies, windegos, mummies, elemental spirits, and more living human lives—or as close to it as they can. When events threaten their discovery, and Sabrina and Moselle find themselves smack in the middle of controversy, they must do whatever is needed to protect their identities and their loved ones.

Back cover:

Sabrina, a lovely fairy has it all: fame, fortune, and beauty—until her boyfriend Cade, a rebel vampire, films their involvement in a crime as well as the passionate lovemaking that follows.

But Cade loses his camera and the video is posted online, ruining Sabrina’s life. After a year of nursing her wounds, she resurfaces only to find herself hunted for her wings.

The lives of all unearthly beings are at stake—fairies, windigos, mummies, and elemental spirits, caught up in a frightening flood of events that threaten their discovery. Sabrina and Moselle, a sex-starved mummy and the daughter of a wealthy businessman, find themselves in the middle of the conflict, forced to take drastic action to protect their identities and lives.

In trying to save themselves can they also prevent the United States from falling into the hands of an evil mind with horrible intentions?

THE LIFEBLOOD OF ILL-FATED WOMEN

Book ONE in The Blood, Sun, and Moon Series

The Viking princess Astrid finds herself wandering through a strange land—with no memory of how she arrived. Her search for answers will lead to enemies, both human and demonic.

 

Astrid the White isn’t an average princess. She has always stayed by the side of her father, King Kol, and learned warfare and weaponry from the best Vikings in the land. When she awakens in the city of Birka and hears the sounds of war, she rushes proudly into the fray. She is more than capable of taking down any enemy wishing to disturb the peace.

This enemy, however, isn’t what she expected. Before Astrid even gets outside the walls, a golden light knocks her out.

She comes to in the snow, in full battle armor. Astrid first suspects that this is a challenge from her father—or even the gods themselves. By acting correctly, she can gain the favor of Odin, the Allfather.

Astrid wants to complete the test, but it becomes more and more difficult as she explores this new part of the world and encounters both monsters and monstrous men. As creatures from the darkest legends reveal themselves, Astrid will discover that her journey isn’t about acting correctly or passing Odin’s test. It’s about pure survival. Before she can even think about finding Birka, she will have to defend herself against the demons of this new world.

Back cover:

For Astrid, there is no greater honor than dying as a true Viking warrior and ascending to Valhalla. She anticipates it in every battle and is always eager for the next fight. When she hears the sounds of war outside her father’s stronghold of Birka, she answers the call. But a golden light envelops her, and she is suddenly gone.

If that light had taken her to Valhalla, she would have been at peace.

Instead, this golden light dumps her into a snowy, awful, godforsaken land. Astrid has no idea where she is or how she got here. She begins to suspect that she is in Hel, the underworld of Norse mythology. As Astrid searches for her home and family, a farmer, Warren, comes to her aid. Astrid doesn’t trust him at first, but she will have to rely on Warren and other companions when her destiny reveals itself.
