I never thought I’d be celebrating yet another release in the same year—this will be 4!!!—but my upcoming urban fantasy title, After Vertigo, through the Dreamspinner Press imprint, DSP Publications, is set for December 10, 2019, and available for pre-order now.
This one is special as it is dedicated to my husband, who is a constant source of support, but also because it is basically a love-letter to comic books, one of the things that brought us together. It also has a cameo of a cat that bears a striking resemblance in personality and appearance to my own kitty, Helga.
I could not be happier with how the cover turned out (and the artist’s patience with me and my nitpicks) and hope this tale offers something special for those of you who enjoy a ‘hero’ and ‘villain’ finding love in each other, especially since neither of them fits the molds they’ve been cast in.
Here’s a sneak peek!
In a flash, the world changed. A solar flare—later dubbed Vertigo—activated the DNA of more than half the world’s people, granting them special abilities. Brilliant scientist Benjamin Krane might be Powerless, but his inventions are the only thing giving the police a fighting chance against super-powered evil. Ben doesn’t have much of a life beyond work, and when he gets wind of a robbery one evening, he decides to test his newest invention personally….
A thief, rogue, and shameless flirt, Grey Miller—aka the Streak—likes shiny things, but he doesn’t hurt people. When Ben catches him—and proposes they team up against the real bad guys—Grey doesn’t know whether it’s the offer or the man he can’t resist. But one thing’s for sure—they’re an ideal match in more ways than one.
With a psychotic supervillain’s catastrophic plan moving forward and everyone he cares about in danger, now might not be the best time for Ben to give in to Grey’s seduction, no matter how tempting. Grey is a man of secrets, and if Ben wants a future with him, he’ll have to learn to trust Grey—and himself.
