Dead Man’s Deal by Jocelynn Drake just $0.99

Today’s Kindle Daily Deal is DEAD MAN’S DEAL, book 2 of the Asylum Tales, by Jocelynn Drake. You can get this fabulous urban fantasy for just $0.99, today. 

Dead Man’s Deal continues the dark and dangerous adventures of a magical tattoo artist begun in Angel’s Ink.

In a gritty urban fantasy world where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires swim free in a sea of humanity, sometimes you need an edge. Looking for a little love? Need some luck? Desperate for revenge? Gage can give you what you need. The most talented tattoo artist in town, he knows the right symbol and the right mix of ingredients and ink to achieve your heart’s desire. One tattoo is all it takes. But remember, everything has its price.

The wizards know Gage is using forbidden magic, and they intend to punish him for his  transgressions. Too bad if innocent humans and monsters—entire cities—get in the way. They will quell a nascent magical uprising and Gage will be the sacrifice they need. First, though, they have to find him.

Happy Pub Day to Jocelynn Drake, Terri Garey, and Caris Roane!

An anthology from authors Jocelynn Drake, Terri Garey, and Caris RoaneLooking for a great paranormal read with a romantic thread that leaves your spine tingling? Just in time for Halloween, Avon Impulse has the perfect haunted anthology for readers.  BLOOD BY MOONLIGHT (Avon Impulse; On Sale: 10/23/2012; E-ISBN 9780062238870; $0.99) brings three beloved paranormal and urban fantasy authors together to tell original tales of romance where anything can happen under a Halloween moon.

Tempers flare and passions rise in Jocelynn Drake’s “Of Monsters and Men” as the local werewolf pack clashes with the Winter Court’s Wild Hunt. Drake, best known in the urban fantasy world for her Dark Days series and her new trade paperback, ANGEL’S INK (on sale now from Harper Voyager), is a favorite of Kim Harrison, who said about ANGEL’S INK, “Drake’s writing holds a wonderfully wry humor akin to dark chocolate,” and reviewers: RT Book Reviews calls her an “expert storyteller.” “Of Monsters and Men” is set to please romance and paranormal fans alike.

In Terri Garey’s “The Ghoul Next Door”, a witch and a warlock battle it out for possession of a haunted house, but the ghost may have her own agenda. Garey is well-known in the spooky romance arena. Her Nicki Styx series started off with DEAD GIRLS ARE EASY winning two coveted RITA Awards, including Best First Book.

Avon Impulse newcomer Caris Roane joins these two paranormal masters with “Trick or Threaten,” in which a Master vampire struggles to stay away from the mortal woman who enflames his very soul.

Readers will enjoy this “fun read” (All Things Urban Fantasy) from three of today’s spookiest authors.

Happy Pub Day to Jocelynn Drake!

Book 1 of the Asylum Tales series

Jocelynn Drake’s latest, Angel’s Ink, is now available as a trade paperback and an eBook! This is the first in Drake’s fantastic new Asylum Tales urban fantasy series, which takes place in a seedy tattoo parlor that offers an unusual service to customers willing to pay the price: magic tattoos. The right ingredients mixed in the ink along with the right symbol etched into the skin can get you your heart’s desire in a world where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires walk free and happy among humanity. Asylum Tattoos is owned by Gage, a man with a few skeletons in his closet—namely, the fact that he’s a warlock on the lamb from the sinister Ivory Towers.

Critics love Angel’s Ink!

“Drake kicks off a new urban fantasy series with a strong first title….Gage is an appealing, noirish lead character, a single guy down on his luck. Urban fantasy readers who prefer male leads, which can be rather scarce in this subgenre, should definitely check out this series from the popular Drake.” Booklist

“Drake very ably spins a series launch about a tattoo artist with big secrets… [Gage] stirs up trouble that sends the plot caroming with ferocious intensity to a satisfying but open-ended conclusion.” — Publishers Weekly

“Angel’s Ink is an other-earthly blend of magic and technology in the best tradition of urban fantasy that refused to let me go. The continuing Asylum Tales promise to be intriguing and wildly inventive.”—Kim Harrison

“Gritty, authentic and fast-paced! This urban fantasy series rocks!” — J.R. Ward

“A lot of fun, with a whole new take on the dark urban fantasy. Bright and breezy, with fascinating characters, and a background with hidden depths. Drake puts the ink in incredible.” — Simon R. Green

Jocelynn Drake’s Asylum Tales Begin!

On sale today is The Asylum Interviews: Bronx, the first of two ebook only prequel stories to Jocelynn Drake’s ANGEL’S INK, the first novel in her new Asylum Tales series about a magical tattoo artist, Gage, and his friends, Trixie, a gorgeous elf who hides her true identity and a hulking troll named Bronx.

Download it today and look for ANGEL’S INK in October. Here is just some of the praise it has already received:

“Jocelynn Drake’s writing holds a wonderfully wry humor akin to dark chocolate: bitter but irresistible. With a unique and fascinating magic system, Angel’s Ink is a new take on traditional and urban fantasy themes, spinning a tale of personal vendettas, mob bosses, and just a touch of romance. Gage is an engaging, sympathetic character with curiously twisted problems that he brings upon himself despite his best efforts. Keeping secrets from his friends works…until the hapless Gage makes the largest, and perhaps best, mistake of his life. Now he just has to survive it. Angel’s Ink is an other-earthly blend of magic and technology in the best tradition of urban fantasy that refused to let me go. The continuing Asylum Tales promise to be intriguing and wildly inventive.”
— Kim Harrison

“Gritty, authentic and face-paced! This urban fantasy series rocks!”
— J.R. Ward

“A lot of fun, with a whole new take on the dark urban fantasy. Bright and breezy, with fascinating characters, and a background with hidden depths. Drake puts the ink in incredible.”
— Simon R. Green
