Pre-Order Dirty Deeds
Last year, R.J. Blaine and I got to talking about putting together a collection of novellas. We roped Faith Hunter and Devon Monk into ourmadness, and now it’s almost here! Dirty Deeds contains four novellas set in our various worlds, plus a few extras. I set mine in the Mission: Magic world. It’s called The Pixie Job, and it’s silly, and fun, and romantic, and snarky, and I think you’ll love it. I know that I do. But it’s the third in the Mission: Magic books. Third, you ask? But The Incubus Job is the first, where’s the second? Well, it’s almost done and I am hoping to get it out before Christmas. It’s called The Elf Job and it’s so freaking fun! You can’t preorder that one yet, but soon. And you’ll also be able to order the fifth Diamond City Magic novel soon, too! But more on that later. So without further ado, I’m going to share the cover of The Elf Job. It’s not complete yet, but it’s close.

The Witchkin Murders, Book 1 of Magicfall, is Now Available!
Magicfall is actually the same world as The Horngate Witches books. These books are entirely separate with new characters. Here’s what it’s about:
Four years ago, my world—the world—exploded with wild magic. The cherry on top of that crap cake? The supernatural world declared war on humans, and my life went straight to hell.
I used to be a detective, and a damned good one. Then Magicfall happened, and I changed along with the world. I’m witchkin now—something more than human or not quite human, depending on your perspective. To survive, I’ve become a scavenger, searching abandoned houses and stores for the everyday luxuries in short supply—tampons and peanut butter. Oh, how the mighty have fallen, but anything’s better than risking my secret.
Except, old habits die hard. When I discover a murder scene screaming with signs of black magic ritual, I know my days of hiding are over. Any chance I had of escaping my past with my secret intact is gone. Solving the witchkin murders is going to be the hardest case of my life, and not just because every second will torture me with reminders of how much I miss my old life and my partner, who hates my guts for abandoning the department.
But it’s time to suck it up, because if I screw this up, Portland will be wiped out, and I’m not going to let that happen. Hold on to your butts, Portland. Justice is coming, and I don’t take prisoners.
Praise for The Witchkin Murders:
This book was fascinating. I was enthralled by Kayla and how she dealt with what Magicfall had done to her . . . . if you like to read great characterization, conflict and resolution then you need to read this. My highest recommendation. ~Beauty Sleuth-Book Diva

Putting the Fun in Funeral is now available!
Beck Wyatt has always hated her mother—enough to kill her. As luck would have it, someone beats her to murdering Mommy Dearest and now Beck gets to plan the tackiest funeral the world has ever seen for the worst woman she’s ever known.
But first, Beck has a few minor problems to deal with. First on the list? Avoid getting kidnapped. She also has to convince the police she didn’t kill her mother. And then there’s surviving a death curse ….
With the help of her three best friends, cheesecake, and a little magic, Beck figures she can handle anything, even the mysterious and irritating Damon Matroviani, whose sexy good-looks light her panties on fire.
All too soon, her life is turned inside out, and just when things are looking like they can’t get any worse … everything hits the fan.

This book is a real game changer. Riley must make some hard decisions and will need a little help from both her family and friends. Things in Diamond City are about to change in a big way and Riley will be in the middle of it all. Relationships will be tested, lives will be put on the line, and a new threat will enter into the fray making for a highly intense, compelling, and gripping read.
I couldn’t help but give this one 5 out of 5 roses. I love this dynamic duo and the world Ms. Francis has created. The chemistry between Price and Riley is off the charts, and I love the way they banter back and forth. Price gives as good as he gets from Riley which keeps her on her toes. Be forewarned, however, that this one ends abruptly in a huge cliffhanger. Gah! (If you heard someone screaming loudly last night that was probably me shouting, “NOOOOOOoooooooo!” **smirk**) On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale this one earned a FAN rating–the temperature in the room seems to have suddenly gone up a couple of degrees and a fan would be nice. I highly recommend this series. This series is destined for my keeper shelf.

Check out my short story Ashes and Dust in Trials: A Rogue Mage Anthology. Faith Hunter created the Rogue Mage world and invited several of us to come play in it by writing stories for two anthologies. Trials releases on November 28. Other authors include Faith Hunter, Tamsin Silver, Ken Schrader, Christina Stiles, Misty Massey, and Melissa McArthur.
Ashes and Dust follows the story of Mistral, caught between two worlds and fighting to be free of both. His only hope for survival is to take risks that will more than likely kill him. But better dead than a slave–or is it?

The Incubus Job, first book in the Mission: Magic series, is now available. It’s romantic, action-packed, sexy, and so much fun.
“Pharaoh Francis does her usual excellent job of creating characters readers instantly care about and stories they can’t wait to explore!” —Romantic Times Book Review
“Wow, I loved this book so, so much. I’m so happy that I accepted it for review because now I have a new series to obsess over (hint: I want book #2 yesterday!!) . . . Like I said when I started this review…I adored this book. And I HIGHLY recommend it. I’m not a huge paranormal reader. I enjoy them, but it’s not a genre I actively seek out. This is a series that I will be haunting the authors blog looking for word of when the next book is coming out. When it comes to paranormal, that’s not normal for me, but I’ve fallen in love with these two characters. I need more from them!” –Smitten With Reading
“These strong compelling characters demand attention while they entertain you with their snarky and explosive relationship in this well-written, fast paced and smooth flowing plot that thrills readers with lots of suspense, excitement, and romance.” –Night Owl Reviews
