Did you have an enjoyable weekend? For some reason, this last one seemed a lot shorter than the past few – and those seemed shorter than normal too. It's probably a good thing a three-day weekend will be coming at the end of this month even if I have no idea what that means. I've got too many authors to wrangle to take a holiday.

Speaking of authors, a few more have gotten their answers to me for the interview, and we'll be sharing one of those this week.

If we were going to start putting other articles on the website, what type of articles would you like to read, besides author and staff interviews?​​​​

There are 7 amazing books launching this week and one is already out today! Talk about a great way to start the week!

Kat and Cyrus are desperate to help their friend and are willing to do anything, including turning to help from a woman the government considers a dangerous traitor.

While Jade’s problems are a concern, alien trouble grows on the frontier.

Or did Katie have something to do with it?

Pandora reveals more than just a little to Katie.

And together both of them have a huge decision to make.

Title: New Rules for War
Series: Dead Evil Mercenary Corps Book 3
Release Date: 05/18/2022

When the enemy is stoking the fires, it is time for the mercs to make a deal with the devil and pray they have a hope of rescuing something from the flames.

What holds a community, a civilization, or a world together?Shared values? Mutual interests? Perhaps something less definable, like an ineffable source of unity?

Or is it blood and terror, and primal drives that force the pack to close in and bare their fangs?

Such questions may be more suited to philosophers, but the DEMC and its mercenaries are the ones who will be doling out the answers.

As the Jindahin Empire crumbles, the mad mercs of Mugh-9 are holding back chaos with a strong arm and steady trigger finger, waiting for things to settle down.

But what if they never settle down? What if the forces feeding off the anarchy like leeches slurping blood intend to suck the Empire dry?

All DEMC can do is plunge their armored hands into the molten furnace of war as they attempt to rescue a few good ones and get out in one piece.

They were banished from this world—in order to protect it.

But someone has brought them back.

They want to destroy it.

Can Paris Beaufont send these gods of love back to where they belong?

Kaylin has been stuck in Waypoint for too long.

She’s been busy fighting and leading the resistance, and she’s set to run her own crew, but that's not much good if she's still stuck in this city.

She was made for more than this.

Every day, Kaylin feels the urge growing, like an itch in the back of her mind.

And the Mountain… The Mountain is calling to her.

So what's a girl to do but carve her way out of this bloody mess?

There’s no better way to get where she needs to be than to win the fight. But against an entrenched enemy, winning the freedom to scratch her itch is going to take guts, cunning, and no small amount of recklessness.

Good thing Kaylin has an abundance of all three.
