Fantasy Urban

They say justice is blind. But Justine isn’t.

Justine (Tina) Clancy is just an ordinary law student with a faulty arrest record, a part-time job in Baltimore’s radioactive Zone, and a family secret so bizarre even she doesn’t believe it. That is, until in a fit of fury she damns her boyfriend to hell—and it’s exactly where he ends up.

Much to her surprise, Tina is apparently one of Saturn’s daughters, with the power to wield vigilante justice. But poor Max didn’t deserve to go up in flames, even if he did almost run her over with her own car. Tina’s convinced someone cut the brakes—and now a relentless nemesis is stalking her through the Zone’s back alleys, where buildings glow, statues move, and chemical waste exposure comes with interesting consequences. Tina’s usually a loner, but now she needs a posse like no other: a shape-shifting kitten, an invisible thief, a biker gang, a snake-charming private detective, a well-meaning cop, and her sleazy, sexy boss. But in between freeing Max from hell, saving her own neck, and solving a mystery that threatens the Zone and her newfound friends, how is she ever going to study for finals?

Inspirtation for lots of things come from quirky encounters! I have sometimes crafted really interesting items because I "saw" something hidden in a piece of lumber or other natural elements!

Keep those ideas rolling!

A boyfriend from hell does not love you, uses you for money and sex and drops you when the next target comes along......what gal hasn't had one? Thankfully, I have been happily married to a non-user for 39 years. Please enter me to win your new book!

OMG! This has become a must read. I am a BMore girl, born and raised. I moved to another state but visit twice a year, nothing like seeing home when going off 895 and seeing the Harbor. Sounds like a great orginal story.
(
Carla Carlson 5:47pm September 24, 2012)

Love how you found your inspiration from a cornfield for your new book. Guess the mind gets to wandering when you have miles of cornfields to look at. I think most gals have experienced having at least one "boyfriend from Hell" and would much rather read about one! Can't wait to read this!
(
Linda Luinstra 5:57pm September 24, 2012)

Your series sounds like a lot of fun! Thanks for the chance to win!
(

(
Kai Wong 6:27pm September 24, 2012)

Sounds like a great read. Thanks for a chance to win.
(
Linda Hall 6:33pm September 24, 2012)

(
Kimberly Hoefs 8:41pm September 24, 2012)

I have to say that your idea is so demented, it's a series of books that I would be crazy to pass up!! I love the idea, and can't wait to sink my teeth into your books!! They're not the genre that I would normally read, but after reading your posting, you got my interest. I adore the cover as well. I suppose that's the job of a great Author!! Well done!!
(
Peggy Roberson 8:49pm September 24, 2012)

Cornfields remind me of children of the corn, but can't wait to see how cornfields play out in this book
(
Pamela Fox 9:13pm September 24, 2012)

I love urban fantasy and I am always looking for new authors to read!
(
Jennifer Beyer 9:58pm September 24, 2012)

You book has sparked my interest. Has lots of ideas rolled into a series of WOW ideas to keep the reader wanting more. Appreciate your offering this contest to win a superb book and hope to be lucky to win a copy. Thanks : )
(
Shirley Sego 10:53pm September 24, 2012)

That's a fantastic cover and it certainly will catch the eye. Urban fantasy is a great genre so good luck! Yes ideas do come from anywhere but most people never develop a "what if" moment... keep going strong!
(
Clare O'Beara 6:32am September 25, 2012)

Ha- I like the title! I've had a few of those...
Ideas are all around us, but it takes talent to turn those ideas into a
workable story. Thanks to all the novelists who do that so well.
(
Debbie Burdeen 7:38am September 25, 2012)

Sounds great!
(
Teresa Kerr 8:56pm September 25, 2012)

(
