TRICOLOR will be out this month!

It’s the typical problem of can’t-stay-broken-up-with-your-boyfriend-when-his-parents-go-missing. Okay, so it might not be typical but O’Ryan’s lovelife is bumped to the bottom of the priority list when a madman shows up wielding a knife. O’Ryan has to meet his demands or everyone she cares about will be toast.

The easy answer is to call the police, but it’s a bit much to ask them to protect everyone—the list of people he’s threatened is really long. When her boyfriend’s parents turn up dead, she realizes the man with the knife has to be beat at his own game because giving into his demands will make O’Ryan a criminal too.

TRICOLOR by Lisa Terry is a New Adult Romantic Thriller

It's Coming!

EDIT: "It's here!"

WHITE STAR is here, and I couldn't be more excited. It's a pet novel of mine, and I've been on pins and needles, waiting to find out what you all think of it. *lift glass* Here's to hoping that not all first novels are destined for the bottom your sock drawer.

To wet you palette a little, here's a trailer.

My book releases January 22!

I'm on pins and needles. I'm freaking the freak out. I'm excited, scared, anxious, happy, stressed...and I'm suddenly shy. Weird, huh?

I realize I'm not the first debut author to exist, but knowing that isn't helping any. It'd be comforting to know that all these emotions were okay, normal, or at least something I'll get over. Except the excited and happy ones. I'll keep those. Anyhow, this wasn't supposed to be a post about me. I just realized that I hadn't officially told everyone when Moment(s) is coming out.

In two days!
January 22!

I'll post my book blurb (that's really an ugly word, isn't it?), my summary, and the cover below. But first I wanted to point out some changes on my blog. Notice my new banner thanks to Deborah at Tugaboat Design. She's also my cover designer as well as other promotional art. She's pretty darn good, isn't she? Hit me up and I'll give you her email. I also have a new sunset background. Should I ditch it and go back to the old one?



They’re dying to be fans.

Scottish rocker Julian McLane lives life as normally as possible. But fame can be lonely, which might be why he spent a year looking for the girl he caught making a wish behind the concert arena. His fans aren’t happy to share him now that he has found Emilie—too bad their violent displeasure only pushes the couple together.

Emilie needs protection from rabid fans, so Julian convinces her to tour with him and his prank-loving bandmates so his security team can watch over her too. Julian thinks their coupledom is as right as a love song. But something’s very wrong about murder victims wearing the band’s concert bracelets. Someone seems intent on downsizing the fandom.

Julian holds a twisted mess of clues about the killer’s identity, with every day bringing a different theory, and he’s beginning to think finding the killer means losing Emilie forever.

It's a 3 a.m. book

So many of my great friends are getting published! Isn't it amazing? My very talented friend Caitlin Sinead is eagerly awaiting her book release in February, and I'm right there with her. Or course I've had the fantastic luck of being Caitlin's critique partner, and have already read Heartsick, but I can't wait to get my hands on the published copy. Heartsick is one of those books that will keep you up at night - not because you're scared (though there are enough thrills in it), but because you must know what happens. Who cares if it's 3 AM on a Sunday night?

Without further adieu, I give you the summary:

Heartsick
Caitlin Sinead

Quinn is looking forward to her senior year. She has big plans to hang out with her best friend Mandy, flirt with cute boy-genius Rashid, party at her favorite dive bar, and figure out what she’s going to do after graduation with her not-so-useful art major degree.  But that is before she meets Luke, a hot townie who moves back home to help take care of his dying sister. And it is before the weird epidemic that starts sweeping campus in which people’s eyes mysteriously turn purple.  Is it an odd side effect from a new party drug? Is it a rogue bacteria that was developed in a campus lab? Whatever it is, tensions are heating up as the town starts blaming the university, and the student religious group is convinced that it’s the mark of the devil. Quinn and Luke are caught in the middle, especially when Quinn learns that Luke isn’t just a happy-go-lucky, redneck boy-next-door—he is a detective—a fact that triggers Quinn’s phobia of guns and memories of her deceased uncle.  In spite of herself and her desire to remain unattached and independent, Quinn finds herself falling for him.  But when town and gown relations heat up even further, and Quinn’s friend Danny mysteriously falls to his death, Quinn vows to discover the truth behind the epidemic.  As she searches for the people responsible, she realizes that sometimes to gain your independence, you have to be willing to give a little bit of it up.

Caitlin is mucho accomplished too. Check out her bio.

I don't have a jpeg of her book cover, or else I'd post it here, but you guys have to see it. I've started paying a lot more attention to covers lately, and I have to say Heartsick's cover is exactly what it should be.

Our place

A character I don't even know yet, one I've not even begun to create, started yammering away in my head tonight. Here is what she was thinking, typing, or writing to someone:

I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately. Maybe it’s because I’m close to our place this weekend. Maybe it’s because I still hate you. Hopefully it doesn’t mean I’m bored with my boyfriend who’s sitting here, telling me about his favorite book as a kid like he has no idea what or who I’m thinking about. Hopefully it doesn’t mean that I’m not over you.

I'm so excited my friend has a new book coming out!

It's called SHATTERED WORLD by Kate L. Mary and it's her second book in the BROKEN WORLD series.

Stranded in the middle of the Mojave Desert, surrounded by zombies, Vivian and Axl are sure they’re facing the end. The dead are closing in and the shelter they were promised is sealed tight. Just when they think they’ve run out of time, the doors are thrown open. Five years underground with all the provisions there for the taking. It’s almost too good to be true. With the promise of security, Vivian hopes she’ll finally able to deal with the loss of Emily, her growing feelings for Axl, and the terrifying new world they’re facing.

But their sense of security is soon shattered when they discover the shelter isn’t the utopia they thought it would be. It seems the company that built the shelter decided to solve their financial problems by selling off provisions, which means the group has to find a way to get supplies. Or face starvation.

And Vegas is the closest city.

With her feelings for Axl stronger than ever, Vivian volunteers to accompany him and a few others on a trip into one of the biggest tourist cities in the world. Vegas is overrun with the dead, but there are other survivors as well. Only not everyone they meet is a welcome sight. As the emotional baggage piles up, Vivian and Axl’s bond grows stronger, but it doesn’t take long to realize that zombies aren’t the only thing they have to fear.


If you missed the first in the series, the cover and pitch for it are in one of the posts below. Be sure to check to both out, you won't regret it!


Kate L. Mary is a stay-at-home mother of four and an Air Force wife. She spent most of her life in a small town just north of Dayton, Ohio where she and her husband met at the age of twelve. Since their marriage in 2002, they have lived in Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and California.
Kate enjoys any post-apocalyptic story – especially if zombies are involved – as long as there is a romantic twist to give the story hope. Kate prefers nerdy, non-traditional heroes that can make you laugh to hunky pieces of man-meat, and her love of wine and chocolate is legendary among her friends and family. She currently resides in Oklahoma with her husband and children.
