Introducing the newly released Death Interrupted (book one of the Vanished series)

My 12th book (Death Interrupted from the Vanished series) was just sent to the editor today and I'm enjoying a tiny celebration while I begin working on the next book (The Dragon's Demon). I thought it would be fun to give you an idea of what this book is about.

Death Interrupted is a Syfy Dystopian Erotica/Romance novel which was challenging in world building and writing passionate love scenes. Most of my books are full of romantic suspense and some love scenes but the story line generally takes precedence over the sex, however, in this book, sex and the use of sexual enhancing drugs against an unknowing portion of this dystopian society was one of the main story lines.

In today's society we often wonder how much of the food being supplied to us is healthy or made with greed in mind. I question this every time I go to the store and truth be told one of my personal dreams is to have some land where I can grow a lot of the fruits and vegetables we eat. I remember when food was normal sized, not super-sized for mass consumption. Now when you go to buy carrots they are so big it's hard to cut through them with a normal knife.

But size isn't the only indication that makes me worry about the food we eat. I used to buy one of those small rotisserie chickens every week and use the meat as a treat for my dogs. I thought real food instead processed food in doggie treats would be great for them. That was until my nine pound Pomeranian ballooned up and started looking like he was on steroids. It took months of removing the chicken from his diet before my love munchkin went back to normal size. While I can't say for sure his bulkiness came from the chicken, I can say it was only after we eliminated it from his diet that he went back to his tiny size. Hmmm, makes one wonder, huh? I can also say I haven't purchased another rotisserie chicken since.

I always knew I would create a story line where my characters are being dosed with something in their food supply and figured it would have to be a book based on a dysfunctional utopian society so when the opportunity arose to participate in an erotica box set I jumped right into that story line. Why did I decide to use sexual enhancing drugs? Well, sex sells, sure but the box set is erotica so I branched out into deeper waters and jumped in. I'm glad I did. I learned a lot while writing this book and the rest of the series is going to be just as much fun as other sides of this society are revealed (some good and some bad).

The thing that makes it interesting, I think, is that the characters, no matter which side they're on, think they are doing things for the right reasons. It all ties back into procreation and the survival of human and supernatural (you know I had to keep my paranormal theme in this one too) races.

What I found satisfying and unique about this book from my other stories is that the romance in this book plays out between two humans (neither one of them supernatural in anyway). I also began to address how the world reacted when they discovered that the creatures that go bump in the night really do exist. Yep, the book was fun to write. The world was interesting to create and will continue to unravel as the series progresses.

One more aspect I covered in this book was the loss of freedom. The paranormal creatures in this society are trying to save the human race, which is on the verge of extinction. The problem is they have taken away so many freedoms that the world they live in starts to become a prison, all under the guise of protection.

On a final note, I have been toying with writing a dystopian novel that gives a unique theory on what happens to the planes, cruise liners, and other modes of transportation that disappeared over the past and even today from places like the Bermuda/Alaskan triangle or other places across the world. I always wanted to write a series where they are taken on the brink of death to the future and in this series they are asked to save humanity through procreation. This series gave me the opportunity to do that.

Interested? Death Interrupted (the first book in this series) is available on Amazon here. If you'd like to read the first chapter you can find it here. I hope you'll keep an eye out for the release of future books from this series and my other series as well. The book addresses some hefty discussion points which I hope will make it an interesting book for book club reads.

Please note this book was written with strong language and adult situations. It is intended for people 18 and older.

Ripped from the past on the brink death. Thrust into a future where freedom is taken away under the guise of protection. Secured away by the creatures that once hunted and tormented the human race.

Here is the sneak peek of the upcoming book, soon to be released as an individual title as well as part of an amazing box set with other awesome authors. In this peek you're going to get to know the main characters before they are kidnapped and taken to the future to help save humanity. I hope you enjoy this sample of my writing. Be sure to sign up for this blog for updates when new books are released and also sales and giveaways. Also sign up for my newsletter here. Each month I giveaway random prizes to a subscriber or two of my newsletter.

Chapter one

“No, Ricardo, I’m not going to argue with you again!” Melissa Cassidy slid out of the taxi and offered a weak smile as the cabbie pulled her rolling suitcase out of the trunk. The smile was better than she was feeling. If she wasn’t in public she’d be tossing the phone in a trash can just to put space between her and her ex-husband. “They are your children too and all I’m asking is that you keep them for one fracking night! I’ll be back tomorrow.” She pulled out cash from her wallet and slapped it into the cab driver’s fleshy hand. “Keep the change.”

“No, I wasn’t talking to you.” Jackass. “Will you pick the boys up at school or not?” Melissa sighed heavily and rolled her eyes. “Thank you.” She slapped the phone shut and juggled the suitcase, her laptop bag which was falling down her shoulder, and her purse as she tossed the phone in the Louis Vuitton black sequined purse. Her lawyer told her to be amicable, it was all she could do not to tell the lying cheater how she really felt. She would when the divorce and custody hearing was over.

Her heels click-clacked on the cement sidewalk as she headed toward the glass doors to the airport. A portly man in bright yellow and green Bermuda shorts and white t-shirt, which did little to cover his large beer belly, whisked past her, causing her to lose her balance which rolled her ankles, she recovered without damaging the body, but not in time to save the heel of her fire-engine red Jimmy Choo.

Fantastic! What is wrong with the male half of the population lately? Seriously, hasn’t anyone heard of manners, social graces, responsibilities, or being nice?

Melissa limped to the side of the door to look at the damage to her shoe. It was ruined.

“Here, let me help you with that.” A man with a shock of dark hair, piercing blue eyes, and a dangerous goatee knelt in front of her, took her opposite foot in his hand, and ripped the heel off the sole.

“What the hell!” She hissed.

He stood up and handed her the red heel with a grin on his face. “Now you aren’t going to miss your flight.”

Melissa snatched the heel from his hand, red anger coloring her cheeks, she slapped him squarely across the jaw with her free hand. “You’re lucky I don’t scream assault on you!”

He rubbed his scruffy chin and offered a wolfish grin. “I think slapping someone is more of an act of assault than aiding a damsel in distress with killer heels.”

The man screamed sex and danger. His voice was warm and silky on her senses. His ripped jeans sat low on his hips forcing a person to look, and even imagine what delights were at the end of the happy trail. His white t-shirt was tight across his shapely chest. His black leather jacket draped around broad shoulders.

“These shoes were $1500.00.”

“I’ll pay for one of them.” He pulled out his wallet which was attached to his belt buckle with a silver chain, and passed her his card. “Just call my assistant and she’ll cut you a check.”

Melissa stared at the card, “Blake Bronson, Attorney at Law.” She couldn’t wipe the look of disbelief off her face. “You don’t look like an attorney.” He looked like a sex god and his ego matched those looks which turned her off.

“That’s because I’m on vacation.” His cocky smile spread across his face, and Melissa decided she immediately disliked this clown.

“Well, good for you.” She ripped his card in half and tossed it back into his hand. “Thanks, but no thanks.” She attempted to limp her and her pride through the automatic doors of the airport. She needed to get as far away from the infuriating man as possible, unfortunately her ears didn’t make if far enough before his chuckle reached them. Jerk! To put it mildly she was having a very bad day and Blake Bronson, Attorney at Law was just the icing on the poop cake.

* * *

Blake watched as the wickedly gorgeous, green-eyed vixen limped through the doors of the airport. He waited for the familiar whoosh of those doors to close before he allowed the chuckle to erupt from his diaphragm. It was louder than expected since he was holding it in until she was out of earshot. She was a spitfire in a curvy package, and he couldn’t help but imagine the ways he’d enjoy taming her wild ways in the bedroom.

Like all women, she was simply a fantasy. He was otherwise occupied with his so-called fiancĂ© who was pushed on him by his mentor, and one of the partners at his firm. He had no intention of marrying the woman who trapped him by lying about a supposed affair between them, one that boded a child? Yep, how she got hold of his swimmers was beyond him. He never slept with the woman and if he had his way, he never would. The whole engagement was a farce in his mind. He just needed to prove she wasn’t pregnant-at least not with his child, and he’d be free of the lying witch once and for all. Free to pick his own lady, a woman like the spunky one he just met. But until then, hands off. He didn’t need more complications, besides how would he explain his situation to her without sounding like a cheating bastard?

He’d lied about going on vacation. His trip to Hawaii was more of a working business trip with a social meet up. In his investigation of Elise, his fiancĂ©’s past, he discovered another man she was engaged to under similar circumstances, only this engagement didn’t last. The man, Martin Jacobs, ran away to Hawaii never to be heard from again. Elise’s father, Trevor Donnelly, had no desire to see the union actually happen so he let the man escape. Unfortunately, Donnelly thought Blake was perfect for his daughter and he wouldn’t have the same luck escaping the man’s clutches. Too bad the man was one of the most powerful forces in the city. Trevor Donnelly was a man you didn’t mess with if you valued your career, even your life, if the rumors were true.

Thank you for taking the time to read my sneak peek, I hope you felt the tension between the characters and all the romance fans out there can imagine how that will translate to their future relationship (inside and outside of the bedroom). 

I currently have six book series published on Amazon here.

Here's a little peek of the other titles I have available.

Winters Saga (young adult paranormal fantasy adventure with romantic suspense)
Mystery Springs Series (adult paranormal mythological romance with ancient Gods and Goddesses)
PBI Case Files (adult paranormal mystery thriller series with romantic suspense)

Dragon Shifter Romance "To Love a Dragon" book one of Shifter Love Tales New Release

Join homicide detective Charity Holiday as she falls in love with her dragon shifter prince, Malick Pendragon. This steamy romance will wet your appetite and quench your thirst for action, love, shifters, and ancient gods who love meddling in human and paranormal affairs. 

The novella was released this week and is already getting some awesome reviews. 

"Exciting use of shifter lore combined with other paranormal beings and ancient gods" ~ Audra Hart, author of the Airendell & Beast Realm Chronicles.
"I truly enjoyed this fast-paced shifter story. The mix of different shifters was fantastic! The action was well-written and exciting, I love the addition of the gods!" ~ Julia Mills, author of the Dragon Guard series. 
Many of my books have the ancient gods playing with fire and meddling.

Charity and Malick's relationship finds a HFN (Happy for now) ending in To Love a Dragon, but certain events that play out in this novella leave the shifters and their mates sterile. It touches on the large issue of infertility which so many couple's face in today's society.

The fertility curse plays a much larger role in book two of the series which centers around the Lion King and his mate, a human fertility specialist which will be coming in the next couple of months. If you enjoy shifter romances you'll love this first book and the ones to follow.

So with this quick introduction I'll leave you with the words from another FIVE star review for this novella.

This book is AWESOME!! I loved it from beginning to the end. It has it all the romance, the shifting, and the mystery!! I fell in love with Charity and Malick who seem to be so well matched but will they be able to lift the curse?? Have to get the next book to find out!!!! ~ Jackie Baker
This book along with the others mentioned in this post are also FREE with Kindle Unlimited. Load up your kindle with some great paranormal reads that will keep you turning the pages and immersing yourself into their dynamic worlds.

Wonderfully written, heartbreaking and bittersweet story of a mother's love

Author Kelly Cozzone wrote a beautiful story full of angst where a mother struggles with a decision her son makes about where he lives at the age of fourteen. Up to that point her son, Eric had been raised by Alexa Wright and her husband, Eric's step father, Jay - who has been a model step father. Despite the wonderful home Alexa and Jay made Eric decided out of the blue that he wanted to live with his biological father.

No matter what Alexa did, her son Eric began to fail at school and relationships because of his need to be with his biological father.

The day came, Alexa made the decision to let him go to his father. She showed that sometimes a mother has to make sacrifices to provide the best life possible for her child.

This book is currently available at Amazon in the Treasured Moments box set published by Crazy Lady Authors. This book is the first in fourteen heart warming stories and well worth the price of $0.99.

This story is heartwarming and bittersweet. Definitely a FIVE star short and really sets the pace for the rest of the books in the box set. Check out this and many more in the Treasured Moments box set.

You can check out more of Kelly Cozzone's books here on Amazon.

New awesome paranormal song and video

Music has always been a great inspiration for me as a writer and it was only a matter of time before I decided to have a paranormal jingle created for my book series. I added the music to a video I created about my currently released books. It's a fun beat and great lyrics. Thank you Tyler Barks for creating the music. I must admit its a great feeling to hear your titles in a song and even more awesome to work with a talented jingle writer who took all the details I gave him and create a fun, catchy tune. What do you think?

The jingle used in this video was created by Tyler Barks and the video by Jami Brumfield. Please take a moment to check out the video.

Interview with a Fire Witch - Hunter Winters of the Winters Saga

                Ever wonder what it would be like to sit down with your favorite characters outside of the pages of the book? So do I. I love interviewing my characters outside of the books. Check out this interview I did with Hunter Winters from my Winters Saga Series.
                Hunter Winters entered my office with an easy, likable grin. He shook his blond head and shrugged his broad shoulders to shake off excess dampness. “Miss. Brumfield?”
                “Yes, hi Hunter. Please call me Jami.” I told him as I indicated the chair situated across from my desk.
                He sat down and gave me his full attention.
                I pursed my lips with a concerned frown. “Is it raining outside?” It was not common for rainfall in Phoenix, Arizona this time of the year.
                A red blush crept across his cheeks as he lowered his eyes and leaned forward in a secretive manner. “My sister, Savannah, called up a little rainstorm to put out a fire my dragon friend and I created.” He whispered. “I was one of the casualties.”
                I couldn’t help but smile. It had to be pretty fun being part of the Winters family. Witches, werewolves, vampires, dragons, psychics, angels, and all sorts of magical creatures were part of the tightly woven group of family and friends. “Your dragon friend, Freya? I was hoping you’d bring her along to this interview.”
                “My sisters Miracle and Mystery are watching her. She’s still getting acclimated to this world and has to learn that magic is not something used here in public as it was on the earth she came from.”
                I nod, “makes total sense.” I moved my eyes to his face. “How does it feel to know you have two more sisters raised by your recently returned from the grave father?”
                “Wow, you ask some tough questions. I guess it’s good to get down to business right away. I’m happy but also uncertain. They don’t seem as involved as we are in the supernatural war brewing on the streets of Phoenix.” He examined his heavily chewed fingernails. “They’ve been lucky enough to get magic training since the day they were born and would really be great assets in the battles but they’re more interested in their own lives, which I can’t blame them… it just disappoints me.”
                I nodded, having interviewed his sisters Savannah and Rebecca I completely understood. “Because for so long you and your sisters have always taken care of each other?”
                He agreed, “yes, for so long it’s only been Savvy, Becca and me… well grandma was there but she always seemed distant from us. Now that I know her distance was because she was keeping the secret of our bloodline from us makes the whole thing sad. We missed out on so much because of the secrets.”
                “Some would say it was secrets that made Savannah a vampire.”
                “Possibly, but we all know there’s more to it than that. Our two family lines, the Winters and the Matthews made us targets from the moment we were born.” He looked at me. “Some would say, secrets kept made Rebecca a werewolf. Heck, I got in a sticky situation a month ago because of secrets I kept. Thankfully, our family comes together when things are important.”
                “What secret is that?”
                The left side of his lips rose and a twinkle sparked in his sapphire blue eyes. “You’ll have to read Fire Master Rising to find out.” He teased.
                “Fair enough, so tell me what it’s like being a fire witch?” I went back to my questions.
                “How so?”
                “Well one time I hurled a fire ball at Rebecca by accident, which led to her sucking the air out of the room and making us all pass out. My girlfriend, Natalia got a head injury from that one.”
                “I remember reading about that in Vampire Princess Rising.” I grinned.
                “It’s funny looking back now, but scary in the moment. Then when I used blood magic to open the family grimoire I blew up Rebecca’s office. My sister just had to save Rebecca’s front yard from bursting into flames a few hours ago.” He shook his head. “I think it will be cool when I get these things under control but for now, dangerous.”
                “Who’s helping you get them under control?”
                “Many people; Natalia, dad, grandma, Mysti, Mira, even little Freya. It’s pretty sad when an eight year old dragon has better control over fire than a seventeen year old fire witch.” He admitted sadly. “But I’ll get there.”
                “I’m sure you will.” I agreed.
                “It’s the empathy that really gets the signals crossed.”
                “Oh yes, emotions have power and sometimes when I’m overwhelmed with emotions from others it can backfire into my fire power.”
                “That can be dangerous.”
                “Yep, especially because I can’t control other people’s emotions. I have to work hard at controlling my empathy in order to reign in the fire.”
                “And how is the empathy control coming along?”
                “Slowly and painfully.” He looked up at me. “Don’t get me wrong. I’m thankful for the gifts but wished I had better control. It’s hard to keep a secret like this from the rest of the world when you can’t even control when it flares up,” he chuckled, “no pun intended.”
                I couldn’t help but giggle myself. He really was an amazing character. So happy about life, reflective, and compassionate. It was refreshing to meet a likable character that held your interest and Hunter definitely did. “In Vampire Princess Rising, we read that you went off to the alternate universe because Ophelia told you the witches in her world could help you cure your sisters. Can you give us an idea of what happened?”
                “Ophelia lied.”
                “Why would she do that?”
                “Because she’s a bad guy.” He shrugged, “I can’t really answer to her motivations but she doesn’t like Rebecca and anyway she can hurt Becks she does. I learned a lesson in that situation.”
                “And what is that?”
                “I learned that family will always be there… and that family is not just those that share your blood, it’s a deeper connection and a stronger commitment.”
                “That’s an important lesson.”
                “One that I’ll never forget.” His phone buzzed. “Sorry.” He looked down at the screen. “I’m really sorry, I’d love to chat more but Freya needs me.” He stood up.
                “Sure, I completely understand. Can you just tell me what fans of the Winters Saga can expect when they read your story, Fire Master Rising?”
                He nodded and grinned. “I do a lot of growing in this upcoming book. You may remember the drugs I took in Rebecca’s story?” I nod and he continues. “I have some struggles with addiction as a side effect from the Black Death pills. Freya helps me work through it but it’s a difficult battle. I also need to learn to let my sister’s grow in their own direction. The former vampire queen, Violet goes on trial for the massacre of the wolf pack. Savannah plans her royal wedding and there is a showdown between Rebecca’s pack and Ophelia and her otherworld pack. Gosh, there are plenty more surprises. I guess you’ll just have to read it and find out.” He headed to the door as his phone went off again. “I’m sorry I really have to go.”
                I nod and tell him thank you and he disappears.
                He was right, there are plenty more surprises in store for the fans of the Winters Saga. Fire Master Rising is coming soon. If you haven’t read Rebecca’s story (Lone Wolf Rising) or Savannah’s story (Vampire Princess Rising) check them out on Amazon.

Secrets to finding the perfect paranormal fantasy book

Paranormal fantasy is all about building awesome worlds and amazing characters that are multi-dimensional. I personally enjoy building paranormal fantasy worlds within the world we live in today, commonly referred to as urban fantasy. Other paranormal fantasy worlds are off planet and alternate dimensions. The first tip I'd give you is to decide which you prefer.

That will narrow down the field and help you get closer to your next favorite book or series. Then ask yourself if you like paranormal fantasies written in the past, present or future. All of these areas offer a different flavor and speak to specific tastes.

One of the great things about paranormal is the variety. There are plenty of paranormal or supernatural creatures out there to choose from. Everyone has their favorites. When I do fan events I'm always amazed at how different people are in just their favorite characters. Some like vampires, others like shifters (which opens a whole world of characters), some enjoy witch stories more than others etc. Everyone has their favorites and that makes today's world a wonderful fantasy adventure for readers because authors know this and offer variety... after all, it is the spice of life, right?

Now you've chosen your favorite location, time, and characters. This should greatly reduce the number of books to choose from. Book sellers offer great filters to help you find some awesome gems in the sea of books available. You can also start searching online. Entering these words into your favorite search engine is bound to bring up some of the more popular options out there.

Another great tip to finding the perfect paranormal fantasy book is to join Facebook groups dedicated to your specific tastes, check out and follow/subscribe to book blogs that focus on your favorite types of books, subscribe to internet radio shows that highlight books in your favorite genres. Find your favorite authors and follow them on twitter, facebook and other social media outlets, they may recommend other authors in their genres that are people to check out. Another great place to check out is YouTube.

Once you find a book you'd like to check out, be sure to read any samples that are available, many authors also offer samples of their work on their blogs. Checking out the sample will let you know if you like the author's style and if it grabs your attention.

If you've done all this and are still needing help lighting up your E-Reader or finding a book to run your fingers through, ask your friends and read the reviews. Once you find that awesome author be sure to favorite/like/subscribe to all their social media outlets to be sure you get updates for the new books coming out (many authors like to run giveaways around new releases and cover reveals). Keeping in touch with them in the social media arena will help keep you up to date with what is coming next.

Some of my paranormal fantasies are:

Lone Wolf Rising (paranormal fantasy adventure with romantic suspense) Werewolves among other supernatural creatures. This is book one of the Winters Saga

Book two of the Winters Saga is Vampire Princess Rising (paranormal fantasy adventure with romantic suspense) Vampires and werewolves among other supernatural creatures.

If you like ghost tales and mysteries centered around college life check out the Ghost Connection Series. Book one, Lost

Book two of the Ghost Connection Series is Death Does Not Become Her

If mystery, action, government conspiracy, and romance is your cup of tea you might like the PBI Case Files series. Book one, The Beginning

Outbreak is book two and it has all the elements listed above. In this novella the PBI team discovers the publicized acts of cannibalism in Florida is actually a break out of a mutated strain of Ebola.

In book three of the PBI Case Files series, titled Lost Plane, the team investigates the disappearance of a commercial airliner and it's 200 plus passengers. What they discover are banshees, cyborgs, and time travel...

Justice Driven is book four of this series and two of the team are kidnapped by angry Amazons sanctioned by the Gods for vengeance. The team joins forces with the horsemen of the apocalypse in order to save their friends.

These are just a few of the books I have available. Check out the rest of my books on Amazon. Be sure to favorite my page on Amazon and subscribe to this blog by email.
