Holiday Giveaway!

It’s my birthday and I’m giving away presents! Or, well, Katey and I are doing a holiday giveaway for Kanaan & Tilney. :) Goodies include Moleskine cahier journals hand-stamped with the K&T logo (designed by John himself, of course), a “I’m a marshmallow” pin representing none other than Lowell ‘burnt mashmallow’ Kanaan, and a giftcard to Loose Id. We’re giving away two sets, so stop by the K&T blog to enter.

Also! We've got another guest stop at a blog! Huge thanks to Danielle over at LoveBytes Reveiws for having us. Click here to head over and read an interview between John and Lowell.

Happy Holidays everyone! And Happy New Year!

Blog Takeover

*Busts through the wall into Jenna’s Blog* What’s up, Halloween party people?

Too much? Yeah okay, I’ll dial it back a notch or two.

Hi, I’m Katey, Jenna’s co-author on Kanaan & Tilney: The Case of the Arms Dealers. Which, by the way, makes for a great Halloween read, seeing as there’s a Zombie Mafia and all. (Note: Not actual zombies. Still creepy.) In this book, we introduce our praeternatural world--a world that exists side-by-side with the world we all live in, populated by people from five different factions of people with inherited supernatural abilities. (More on the worldbuilding here, if you’re into that.) Our eponymous heroes, Lowell Kanaan and John Tilney, are from the Beast and Elementalist factions, a wolf-shifter and a pyrokinetic.

But the Necromorph faction is the one that gets the most attention in this book. It was meant to be a missing persons case, until the missing man turns up dead in cold storage; someone signed a contract to sell his body parts on the black market. Necromorphs can attach new limbs and parts if they lose or hurt the ones they were born with--a practice that tends to freak out the rest of the Praeternaturals, and was therefore forced underground. Enter the Zombie Mafia, here to supply everything you need that society won’t allow. (Want a taste of the Zombie Mafia? Check here!)

Which, yes, means the whole Arms Dealers thing is a huge pun. We couldn’t help ourselves.

But this isn’t the last we’ll see of Kanaan & Tilney and their praeternatural world. I’m just gonna say it right now: Jenna and I are already working to explore all the factions in turn in future mysteries. This includes in-depth looks at the politics and powers in both of their factions. We maaaaaay be working with the Beasts right now, even.

Maybe. Possibly.

So thanks for letting me invade your blog and spill the beans, Jenna. You are beautiful. (You have to leave that line in them’s the rules.) And come visit tomorrow over at my blog, where Jenna gets to stage an invasion of her own!

Kanaan & Tilney: The Case of the Arms Dealers now available from Loose Id, All Romance eBooks, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.

And don't forget the giveaway, which ends soon!

Kanaan & Tilney Cover Release

Cover by Dar Albert
Here it is! The first cover to my first book!! I'm crazy excited, guys. Crazy. Excited. I want to thank everyone who has helped and supported me get this far. I can't begin to tell any of you how grateful I am. And a huge THANK YOU to my amazing co-author, Katey Hawthorne. This book would not exist without you and I'm looking forward to many more! <3

But enough about me! How about a bit more about the book? Lookit those two nerds! That's Kanaan on the left there, and Tilney is on the right. I bet you can't guess which is the grouchy ex-cop turned PI and which is the loud and weird mystery author. Yeah, neither boy is going to win an award for subtlety, that's for certain. :P

The story takes place in modern-day Boston where supernatural races secretly live alongside our own. There are shapeshifters and psychics and illegal arms dealers who literally deal in arms (and legs, eyes, and just about any other body part you could think of). There's romance too, of course. And danger, intrigue, and murder because what mystery story would be complete without those? And there's soooo much more! But, you'll have to read the book to find all that out. :D

The planned release date is Oct. 20th. Perfect for Halloween! For a better look at the cover and for some extra character goodies, head on over to

Also, don't forget to check out my awesome co-author's website either!!

First post!

Exciting, right? :D

Sooo, what to say? I’ve never been particularly good at these introduction type things, but here I go anyway! Once more unto the breach and all that. My name’s Jenna. I’m 29 and I live about thirty minutes away from Boston. I’m a geek; I’m pretty sure I came out of the womb letting that freak flag fly. I like comic books, video games, and my favorite genres to read or watch are science-fiction/fantasy. Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors, The Last Unicorn is one of my favorite books, and I think zombies are terrifying but awesome.

I’m crazy about my dog, Harley, so you’ll probably see mentions of her on here now and again. Her idea of helping me write is planting herself smack dab in the middle of my lap. It’d be annoying if she wasn’t so damn cute.

Uh, what else? My first romance is incoming from Loose Id. I co-wrote it with the awesome Katey Hawthorne and it’s called Kanaan & Tilney: The Case of the Arms-Dealers. It’s about a grouchy wolf shapeshifter and a weird pyrokinetic author solving mysteries together. You can find a site for it here if you’re curious.

And, I think that’s it, for now! Feel free to leave a comment or send me an email if you have any questions, or if you just want to say hello!
