COVER REVEAL: Hellforged (The Unnaturals #2)

I am so so very excited to reveal the cover of my next ebook release for you guys to admire! This book has been in the works in varying forms for quite some time, and I’m absolutely thrilled that it’s that much closer to getting released for you guys to read! Especially since it will appeal much more fully to you straight-up horror fans out there!

Ready for the new cover? Well, here it is!

Is that not a fabulous cover? It was created by Christian Bentulan at Covers by Christian, and he absolutely nailed it (especially since I typically have no idea what I’m looking for in a book cover).

I’m sure by now you’re wondering what this particular book is about. Well, let me tell you.

Zachariah Lawrence wants out.

After working covertly for the United States government for nearly a decade, he’s had enough, a feeling compounded by the fact he was forcibly turned into a vampire during his last assignment for the secretive Unnaturals organization. And with his new apprentice Riley Walker on the run after being declared rogue by their superiors, Zachariah and his partner Ashton Miller race to help her as they realize she has something much more dangerous than vampires on her tail: demons.

But any plans Zachariah makes to ensure their safety quickly fall apart when one of them is possessed by a demonic force and turns against the others. As Zachariah reels from the betrayal and struggles to deal with a demon problem that is quickly spiraling out of control, he is forced to turn to the unlikeliest of sources for help: Agency Director Damon Hartley. And it’s through him that he discovers there’s something much bigger going on, something…biblical.

And I don’t just have a book cover for you today; I have a preorder page up and running too! CLICK HERE to preorder your copy today! The book will be releasing on November 26, 2019.

And ONE MORE THING. If you haven’t read the first book in the series, The Unnaturals, it is absolutely necessary that you read that before you read Hellforged. So I’ve decided to drop the price of The Unnaturals and put it on sale for only $2.99 until December 31, 2019! So catch up on the series and pick up your copy of The Unnaturals today by clicking here!

I went on a cruise, and now I have SO MANY story ideas…

I know I haven’t posted in just a little bit, but life has been incredibly busy for me over the past week-ish. I just got back this morning from my first cruise, a four-day jaunt from Mobile, Alabama, to Cozumel and back with my sisters Amanda and Stephanie, and I’m exhausted. Why is it when you go on vacation, you come back more exhausted instead of less? We had a great time, though, and hopefully we’ll get the opportunity to go on a little vacation with each other again sometime soon, something that we haven’t really had the chance to do before. Have any of you guys ever been on a cruise before? Where did you go? How long was yours? How did yours go for you? Was it a great experience or a terrible one?

Anyway, on the book front… Now that I’m back in town, I’m back at my desk and getting prepared to get back to work with both my editing and my writing. I’m still working on the revisions for The Becoming: Bloodlines, which is going to be SO good; if you haven’t read it yet, there’s a sneak peek of the first chapter available right here on this website! I’m for sure on track to finish the book somewhere around the end of November. To move myself along and motivate myself to get it done as quickly as possible, I’m going to be using NaNoWriMo as a motivator to get the revisions done so I can get it prepped for you guys to read.

In the meantime, I’m working full steam ahead on revisions for Hellforged, which is the second book in The Unnaturals Series, and I’ll be getting the cover done for it really soon. I’ll have that one out by about mid-November, with The Becoming: Bloodlines hitting the e-shelves before Christmas as a lovely little Christmas gift for you guys. I’d hoped to have it out by Halloween, but the cover artist was unable to accommodate getting the cover done in that time frame, so I had to bump it a bit, unfortunately. But trust me, it will be well worth the wait!

Also, just in case you missed the news, I want to remind everyone that The Unnaturals is now available on Amazon for only $3.99 or for FREE with your Kindle Unlimited subscription! You can check out more details about the book and pick up your own copy right here while you wait for book two to come out next month!

And there’s also my monthly newsletter, which officially launches in the first week of November! Get signed up for exclusive you-heard-it-first news, excerpts from works in progress, exclusive short stories, and more! You can sign up for my newsletter in preparation for its launch by clicking RIGHT HERE! I promise I plan to only send a newsletter out once a month; the last thing I want to do is flood peoples’ inboxes!

Exclusive: A Sneak Peek at THE BECOMING: BLOODLINES!

I have a little treat for you guys today, and since it’s the month of October which is traditionally a very spooky month, I thought I would give you guys a sneak peek at the first chapter of The Becoming: Bloodlines, the next book in my post-apocalyptic series! This book has been a work in progress for quite some time (I’ve been playing around with it in one way or another since about 2017), and now that I’m working on the revisions and rewrites, I thought it was high time to give you guys something to look forward to!

Click RIGHT HERE to check out the first chapter, and be sure to let me know what you think! And LIKE my Facebook page, follow me on Twitter, add me on Instagram, and sign up for my monthly newsletter to keep up to date on announcements for the book’s upcoming release!

The Unnaturals Available Now!

My newest release, The Unnaturals, is now available for purchase from Amazon in ebook format!

What is The Unnaturals about?

Supernatural meets Mission: Impossible in this new dark fantasy series from author Jessica Meigs!

After the death of her partner in an assignment gone wrong, Riley Walker is reassigned to work for a top-secret government agency she never knew existed: The Unnaturals. There, she learns of the existence of creatures out of her wildest nightmares. Vampires. Demons. Werewolves. And worse. And it’s up to The Unnaturals to prevent these creatures from destroying humanity.

Tasked with investigating the supernaturally related murders of twenty-seven Unnaturals agents and saddled with a new partner she doesn’t want, Riley quickly runs afoul of vampires intent on making her number twenty-eight. As she races the clock to track down the one weapon capable of killing the strongest breed of vampire, she uncovers a web of lies and secrets from the unlikeliest of sources and hints of something much bigger going on underneath the surface.

The Unnaturals is the first in The Unnaturals Series and is available now on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited!

 

This book (and really the series) has been a labor of love for me. I’ve been working on it in various forms since 2012, so for it to finally get out there in the world where more people can read it excites me to no end.

I hope you pick up your copy, read it, review it, recommend it to your friends, tell all your buddies on social media about it, and help me make it a success!

And for those of you who read it and want to know what happens next, well, books two and three are already written and book four is about 1/3rd of the way done, so it won’t take long for me to get the next books out! So keep your eyes open for announcements regarding the sequel’s release!

The Deadening: Collapse Now Available!

I’m very excited to announce that the beginning of my newest project, The Deadening, is now available for purchase from Amazon!

This one is a real pet project of mine, a horror project that I’ve been working on since 2012, when I started drafting out the beginning of the story, and I’ve been anxious to get it out there for you guys to read for literally years. So I’ve decided to experiment with serializing it and have begun to release it for your reading pleasure!

What is The Deadening about?

The year is 1868.

Sheriff Jeremiah Sharpe has successfully maintained the peace in the small silver mining town of Sterling Ridge and has even made the collar of his career with the capture of the notorious Bell Gang, accused of murdering a deputy in another nearby town. And he has welcomed a new school teacher, Evelyn Randall, from the East Coast to help establish the growing town’s first schoolhouse.

But Evelyn isn’t the only new thing to Sterling Ridge. After blasting begins in a previously untouched area of the mines, the workers return to the town afflicted by a never-before-seen horror, one that threatens to destroy Sterling Ridge as Jeremiah knows it.

The Deadening: Collapse is part one of a five-part serialized novel that follows the events of the Massacre of Sterling Ridge in 1868. Part two will be coming soon!

You can pick up your copy of The Deadening: Collapse from Amazon for only $1.99 now! It’s also available to read for FREE for Kindle Unlimited subscribers!

The Deadening: Collapse Available for Preorder!

 

I am very, very excited to announce that the beginning of my next project, The Deadening, is up for preorder on Amazon!

“Wait, what is this project?” you ask? It’s my experiment with serialization.

A while back, one of my favorite authors played around with serializing a project, and let me tell you, I loved the concept. I loved getting a chunk of the story spread out over time; it was like watching a favorite TV show, but in written form. So I thought it would be fun to try the same thing with The Deadening.

And that’s how you’re getting this book.

So what is The Deadening: Collapse about? Allow me to tell you.
