Books take time to write. I know it should go without saying, but in today's market where some authors are able to put out books with lightning speed, there has been a big push for faster production in the independent publishing realm.
Some authors can do this quickly, and I give kudos to any that can pull off the hat trick of writing, publishing, and marketing an entire series in one year. Publishing books at a speed to match Amazon's algorithms and stay on top of the chart often means publishing titles consecutively keeping no more than a 90 day window between releases.
At an average of 80k words per book, that's a pretty tall order. It's not just writing involved. There are levels of revision, beta reading, layout, cover art design, etc... that all go into the production phase. Not to mention time to set up marketing and print runs (for those who do offer print editions).
So when I say I've been hard at work (and very much silent about what I am doing) for the last 6 months or so, it is not because I am ignoring my readers. You are the reason I keep doing this. Rest assured, I've been working my fingers to the bone to produce something that is worthy of your time to read.
With all that out of the way, let me show you the first look at the latest Supernatural Adventure series I've been so secretive about.
Agents of A.S.S.E.T.
Magic is real, dangerous, and inescapable. That’s where the A.S.S.E.T. agency comes in. Anonymous Supernatural Security and Elimination Taskforce. They’re the front line, maintaining the balance of power, ensuring humans remain happily oblivious to the dangerous magic around them.

Magic is no game. It's real, deadly, and inescapable!
Sage Cynwrig knows her way around a pair of twenty-sided dice, and has forgotten more spells than you’ll ever know. But when her mother is killed by a weapon of magical destruction, fantasy merges into a strange new reality. Her birthmark morphs into the Tree of Life, her boss goes full troll (warts and all), vampires start hitting on her, and shadows do more than just follow her silently.
Had Sage been warned about her special lineage, before her mother's murder, she might have agreed to join the Anonymous Supernatural Security and Elimination Taskforce (A.S.S.E.T). When agent Grey Maddox shows up to recruit Sage, filling her head with stories of an ancient race of people uniquely gifted to withstand the forces of magic, she dismisses him as a fraud.
The truth about Sage’s lineage comes crashing down around her when a supernatural pick-up artist tries to kill her. Bearing the mark of the Tree of Life makes Sage special, but her innate magical immunity also puts a target on her head.
With the weapon still at large, and strange Fae creatures popping up all around her, figuring out who to trust is priority number one. Only then can Sage find the key to neutralizing the weapon before its power is unleashed again.
