Summer is definitely on its way here – except not where Martha lives. It’s more like monsoon season is going on. Her lovely garden is on hold until it dries out, which hopefully happens soon. Be sure to keep an eye on her Facebook pages and groups for videos of the garden as it comes together.

Until next time…

A full-moon solstice. Let the magic flow. Feel the power.
Fae come out to play, vampires rove from dusk til dawn, and werewolves howl. Do they howl…
On this one fateful night, out come the witches, demons, vampires, shifters, and fantastic creatures in a celebration of magic and mayhem. Some spells can only be cast or curses broken on this rare, enchanted night.
If you dare, follow the fae down a magical path but beware of getting forever lost. There’s trouble around every corner amidst the glow of the supernatural.
This summer solstice anthology includes twenty-five brand new, never before published, urban fantasy short stories from international bestselling authors as well as exciting new talent.

A stiletto heel through a vampire’s heart…
Who ever said you had to sacrifice fabulous for functional?
Eventually I’d find her, the one who stole my abilities.
Now I was stuck like this…
As a water elemental, everything about me before was fluid…
My shape, my gender…
Hell, I didn’t even have a gender before…
Whatever form was most appealing to my human prey… that’s the shape I’d take.
Luring my prey to my watery lair through sex appeal and alluring song…
I didn’t even know that vampires were real…
How was I supposed to know that I’d chosen a vampire as an entree?
When I was bit that damned bloodsucker stole my shape-shifting ability…
I was scared shiftless.
I’m out for more than vengeance. I want my life back. But even if I catch her, even if I kill the vampire who ruined my life… can I even take my abilities back? Or, am I destined to stay like this…forever?


What does a girl do when the it turns out the monster who killed her family ISN’T the worst thing out there?

Tara has finally cornered the vampire-bastard who killed her family, only to face a cold hard truth. This monster isn’t the only thing that goes bump in the night. There is something far worse out there.

Choose the lesser monster.

There is a great evil – one of the original evils, actually – and it also has Tara’s vampire in it’s sinful sites. Normally Tara would tell this new evil to get in line … the vampire is her’s to kill. But even she cannot deny that if this new evil gets its way, things would get a lot worse for the world. As in apocalyptically so…

To destroy it, Tara must fight by the vampire’s side.

But joining forces with her greatest enemy may prove to be too much to bear, especially when he revenge she craves so deeply is almost within her grasp.

If Mercy Thompson or Buffy ever managed to get a dragon, they’d be working with Tara Drake.

We’re celebrating the release of book 5 of Case Files of an Urban Witch, Mom’s The Word, by helping other super Moms (or Dads). Martha figured what better way to help fans bake the goods she has as recipes in the back of every book than to give away something that would help.

An who wouldn’t want a stand mixer to help them bake?
