So, here’s the cover for the paranormal romance anthology, Alphas Unleashed from authors S.E. Smith, Michele Callahan, Mina Khan, and Yours Truly. My contribution is Dead Drop, a My Immortals novella featuring a demon named Palla and a heroine named Wallace Jackson. Target release date is June 15.
Dead Drop, A My Immortals series novella, by Carolyn Jewel
The demon Palla is a warlord’s enforcer, a stone cold killer. Wallace Jackson is a pacifist witch with a dangerous power. He wants nothing to do with humans until he needs Wallace to help him free his former lover from a living death and release her spirit from unimaginable suffering.
Dead Drop is set in the My Immortals series world where demons and magic-using humans called the magekind are not quite getting along. Most people have no idea they’re living in what amounts to a magical war-zone. The novella is about 30,000 words (120 pages).
Dead Drop will appear in the paranormal romance anthology Alphas Unleashed, releasing June 2104. All the novellas in the anthology will be available individually by October 2014.
