What happens when falling in love and falling from grace collide?

After dying in a car accident with her two best friends, Lily miraculously awakens to grief and guilt. She escapes to her dad’s to come to terms with the crash and meets some people at her new school who seem all too eager to help her heal. Sliding deeper into sorrow and trying to fight her feelings for two of them, she finds out who…what they really are and learns they are falling too.

maersiteabouthebook

Most of Thulu and La Fi’s clients are dead. Which is perfect since their detective agency caters to the supernatural. But a simple job finding a lost locket leads to a big case tracking relics for an ancient daemon.

The daemon needs the relics to keep a dangerous portal closed. His enemy, Gabriel, wants the relics to open the portal and give his people access to a new feeding ground – Earth.

Caught on live TV, other portals begin to open and the creatures of magic return to Earth. The people of Earth are not alone, but will soon wish they were.

When Gabriel threatens their family, Thulu and La Fi’s search becomes personal. The couple will need powerful help in the race to find the relics before Gabriel does. But maybe that’s what ghostly friends, magical allies and daemonic clients are for.

When the creatures of myth and magic return to Earth, they’re nothing like your mother’s fairy tales.

Twist

22456905The unbelievably thrilling sequel to the time-travel YA novel Loop.

Bree Bennis finally has it all—a non-comatose mother, an uber-hot (albeit anachronistic) boyfriend named Finn, and a new-found mission to protect the timeline from those who would skew it for their own gain. But when she leans over one day to smooch said boyfriend, her lips meet those of her arch-nemesis Wyck instead. The timeline has been altered, and Bree is caught in the crosshairs. But when she goes back to repair the damage, she is stopped by none other than her Future Self, who delivers an urgent message: Someone is kidnapping Shifters from the distant past. It’s up to Bree to stop them. But first, she has to figure out who… and why.

To follow the trail of chronocrumbs, Bree reluctantly accepts her new undercover gig as Wyck’s girlfriend. Everything goes spiffy until Finn shows up in the 23rd century on the eager arm of a gorgeous fellow Shifter,Blark. Even as Bree struggles with jealousy, she battles the nagging dread that Finn might be better off with someone less chronologically complicated. Her worst fear is confirmed when Finn becomes the kidnapper’s next victim. As Bree zeroes in on the culprit, they unravel her life one timeline-change at a time. She realizes that she alone has the power to save herself and everyone she loves. But to do that, she may lose Finn forever.

Ghosts of Modern Magics

box set complete - transparent background

The entire collection of the novelettes from my Modern Magics series is now on sale!  In addition to the four novelettes, I’ve included a brand new story written just for this collection. The topic of that story was chosen by the members of my awesome street team, Team Thulukan from Facebook, and is dedicated to them. Feel free to come join us in Team Thulukan.

Oh, and this collection also includes samples from each of the full-length novels in the Modern Magics series, with a special sneak peek at the soon-to-be-released third book, Magics.

The novelettes were written as companion pieces to the novels. Readers had asked about Thulu and La Fi’s lives before the events in the books. So, I began the stories to answer some of those questions.

The novels are cross-genre Urban Fantasy / Sci Fi / Paranormal Mystery and tell what happens when magic returns to Earth. However, the novelettes are firmly in the Paranormal Mystery genre. While set in the same universe and with the same characters, the novelettes have a  slightly different feel to them than the books.

The cover for the box set was designed by the talented M Joseph Murphy, who designed the entire Modern Magics series. He also wrote the foreword to this box set. (Thanks, Joseph!)

My editor, Jen Ryan from Imagine That Editing, added an editor’s note to the collection, too. So there’s some behind-the-scenes insight from two of those connected to this series.

Ghosts of Modern Magics

Before magic returned to Earth in the Modern Magics novels, Thulu and La Fi’s clients were usually the dead. The Ghost novelettes detail a few of their more memorable cases.

“Ghost Memory” – An amnesiac ghost hires Thulu and La Fi to find missing money from his home for his aging husband.

“Unwanted Ghost” – The couple inherits a furnished Victorian, complete with its own noisy ghost.

“Ghost Dancer” – Young Danika asks Thulu and La Fi to save her dog from the killer who murdered her.

“Wedding Ghost” – Just before their own wedding, the detectives are hired to find out what happened to another bride ninety years before.

BONUS MATERIAL

“Lost Ghost” tells the story of eleven-year-old Thulu and Fiona’s first case.

This collection also includes samples from the Modern Magics novels – Relics, Portals and the upcoming Magics.

 

This collection will be available from the usual online retailers soon, but is currently on sale at:

Amazon

It is such a treat to welcome back the fabulous GS Jennsen. Following up her hits Starshine and Vertigo, I’m thrilled to announce the third book in the Aurora Rising series is now available. Be sure to check it out today!

 

Transcendence Cover_v4_1000

Transcendence

 

What does it mean to be human? What if the price of saving humanity is giving up your own?

The year is 2322, and we stand upon the precipice of extinction.

The invading Metigen armada has decimated the eastern third of settled space in a matter of days, leaving tens of millions dead. Determined to save the heart of human civilization, Earth and Seneca at last put aside their differences to face the threat together. But even this may not be enough to stop the fleet of colossal dreadnoughts inhabited by advanced AIs.

Alex Solovy and Caleb Marano hold the key to defeating the invaders, for they know the secrets the aliens wage war to protect. Now they face a deadly gauntlet of relentless alien hunters and assassins sent to kill them before they can unleash a potent new weapon. They will risk everything in a bid to save their families, their loved ones, the entire human race–even if it means they can’t save each other.

The lines blur between man and machine, ally and enemy, and soldier and civilian. In a final stand against an ancient, powerful foe intent on eradicating it from the universe, humanity comes face to face with its destiny.

 

You can buy Transcendence at Amazon.

G.S. Jennsen

GS_Jennsen_Photo_400When she was two years old, G. S. Jennsen informed her parents that she would be learning to read now. When she was four, she brought the dinner-table conversation to a screeching halt by inquiring as to what they knew about the nature of infinity.

The rest is history. A long, convoluted history that wound across the United States and back again—and back again—through a shocking variety of windowless libraries, windowless corporate boardrooms and windowless engineering labs.

She has been a corporate attorney, software developer, freelance editor and author (she finds she prefers the latter). She currently lives in Colorado with her husband and best friend (they’re the same person), who works as an electrical engineer, and their two furry, four-legged children.

There are many windows in her home, half of which look out on the Rocky Mountains.

  1. G.S. Jennsen is a science fiction and speculative fiction author, as well as a futurist, digital artist, geek, and gamer. Starshine: Aurora Rising Book One and Vertigo: Aurora Rising Book Two are available in e-book, paperback and audiobook. For links to retailers, see gsjennsen.com/books. The conclusion to the Aurora Rising trilogy, Transcendence, will be released in March 2015.
