Bound by Faerie Release Day!

It’s release day for Bound by Faerie (Stolen Magic, #1) by WB McKay! Our book is out in the world, flying free! And it’s 99 cents for this weekend only, so you’ll want to grab it at that price while it lasts. 😉

Sophie Morrigan inherited many magical gifts from her death goddess mother. Most of them inflict torture, except the most beautiful. That one kills.

As an agent for the Faerie Affairs Bureau, Sophie loves retrieving dangerous magical objects. The job lets her indulge her covetous nature, and most importantly, it pays the bills. But when a routine job goes south, she finds herself struggling to keep her deadly magic in check while fleeing the wrath of an enraged dragon.

In a desperate search for answers, Sophie stumbles across Owen, a fae nightclub owner who’s as sexy as he is irritating, but just happens to hold the key to her problems.

Sophie wants nothing more than to get her magic under control and return to her normal life, but first she’ll have to face off with all the dangers Faerie can throw at her. Can she fight her way back home? Or will both she and Owen fall prey to a crazed death cult?

Bound by Faerie features a gutsy, kick butt heroine, a broody and dangerous hero, and a ton of magical mayhem.

 

On sale this weekend only! Get your copy on Amazon US or Amazon UK.

 

WB McKay is the pen name of married authors Robert and Faith McKay. Their love of stories brought them together, and they’ve been writing by each other’s side ever since. WB McKay marks the beginning of their true collaboration. They sat down and asked themselves what they couldn’t get enough of. The answer was simple. They loved urban fantasy set in a massive universe with room for every creature they could imagine. Throw in a gutsy female lead, a dash of humor, a pinch of romance, and they would eat it up and ask for thirds.

With that recipe in mind, they created a universe based around the vibrant and enchantingly dark lives of the fae. They invite you to explore their world in Bound by Faerie, the first of their magical adventures. Learn more about them, and their books, at McKayManor.com.

WB McKay Beginnings & a Bound by Faerie Goodreads Giveaway!

Well over a year ago, I had the idea to launch a pen name. I wanted to create an urban fantasy universe, and use that playground for as many series as I could write.

Eventually, Robert and I decided to do this together–which I couldn’t be more excited about.

We’ve wanted to tackle something bigger together for a long time. When we first met, we would play scrabble. After the game, we would write a story, challenging each other to use as many words off the board as possible while we wrote. This produced some weird stories about invisible giraffes, and was the beginning of our collaborative work. (As with any first draft, that work is heavily buried in the folders of old computers, never to be seen again.)

We’ve come a long way since then! Jump to now, and we are ready to tell you about our first book together, published as WB McKay.

Orchard Pointe Cover Reveal! When Strange Takes a Vacation…

I’m a big fan of the Horror Twins, authors Brian LeTendre and Jolene Haley. At the end of last year they debuted with Harrowed, a YA serial killer horror, and now they’ve returned with Orchard Pointe, an amusement park YA Horror, perfect for a stab in the heart of summer.

And now you get to see the cover. Are you excited? You should be excited.

Here we go:

Orchard Pointe FOR WEB

 

ORCHARD POINTE:

Every town has its secrets. This town is made of them.

It’s been ten years since Hudson James stepped foot in the small beach town of Orchard Pointe. His parents are battling through a nasty divorce and he’s forced to spend the summer in Maine with extended family. But Hudson makes the most of it. He finds kindred spirits in his cousin Marley and her oddball friend Kit, and lands a security job at the amusement park he loved as a kid.

Oceanside Amusement Park was once the centerpiece of the beachfront tourist experience. But with attendance down and the park in need of an update, Orchard Pointe’s tricentennial celebration might be the last chance to turn things around. The town brings in a performance group all the way from their sister city of Monrive, France—Madame Chambers’ Coterie of Curiosities. From sideshow to burlesque acts, Madame Chambers and her eccentric group of performers mesmerize locals and tourists alike from the moment they arrive.

When a girl disappears from the park during Hudson’s very first shift, he feels responsible. When she turns up dead, Hudson can’t forgive himself. He vows to discover the truth about what happened and the more he digs, the more he’s certain that Madame Chambers and her Coterie aren’t what they seem.

Can Hudson stop the wave of darkness that has crashed down on Orchard Pointe, or will the undertow of secrets claim another victim?
