HEROINES & HELLIONS: Author Christina Walker

Imagine a world that is fueled by girl power. Strong women. Unbreakable heroines. Fierce femininity.

Now, imagine 22 worlds, just like that. That's what you'll see in the HEROINES & HELLIONS urban fantasy boxed set.

To kick off the prelaunch of HEROINES & HELLIONS, we wanted to show you the badass writers behind the set. Over the next few weeks, we will be introducing each of the HEROINES authors and asking them: Who is the biggest badass woman you know?

So...kick back and kick it with us. Hello, Christina Walker!



A character from my favorite urban fantasy series, the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Her name is Karrin Murphy, a Chicago cop in the department that deals with anything weird. She's five feet tall (which I automatically love because I'm short too), wins awards for her martial arts skills, and isn't afraid to go up against anything -- werewolves, demons, you name it. She's tough enough to stand up to the main character, a powerful wizard, when she thinks he's wrong, and strong enough to put herself back together after some awful things happen to her.



Christina Walker writes urban fantasy and other "supernatural" genres. She is also a librarian and a freelance editor for indie authors. Find out more at christinawalker.net.

October Frights Annual Blog Hop!


Ever since I was a kid, I got a really weird kick out of scaring myself silly.

It started long before I discovered Stephen King (that didn't happen until sixth grade). I was a relentless pursuer of the Bloody Mary legend at day camp--when I was eight years old. To this day, I still can't look into a mirror in a dark room.

In high school, I'd sit in my perfectly peaceful bedroom late at night, imagining all the horrific things that weren't but possibly could be hiding in the shadows downstairs...then have to work up the nerve to go down to the bathroom, all the while straining to hear the things that weren't there (but quite possibly could have been). And then I'd run from them.

On family vacations, I'd drag the husband along on ghost tours--and then go back to the hotel, disappointed that no one ended up possessed. Fifteen dollar for a few stories and the chance to fool around with a K2 meter used to seem like a legit spend of money.

Now, if I don't capture compelling EVPs or end up with demon scratches on my leg, I'm bummed, and I keep the rest of the family up saying things like, "Now, what *would* have been cool is if we got chased by a vengeful spirit and had to run for our lives." Everyone else would put in earplugs and go to sleep, and I'd start to worry I ended up with a spirit attachment who was just biding its time before it made my life a living hell.

King. Poe. Kruger. Halloween. Ghost hunting. Thrill rides. Disturbing movies. Haunted houses. Scary books. All of these glorious things fed an over-active imagination and resulted in a kid who was convinced she really ought to be afraid of the dark.

Ought to be afraid. Never quite made it, but I'm trying.

In fact, I keep digging and prying into the shadows, waiting for the big payoff. It'll come one day, I'm sure, and I will totally lose my poo.

Until then...I run, hoping something will chase.

Giveaway:

Comment below and tell me: what's your favorite way to be scared? I'm looking for new ways to scare myself silly, so tell me what sends you into an adrenaline coma. One commenter will win Frights (a black cat Beanie Boo) and a signed copy of M is for Monster, an A to Z collection of things that belong in the dark.

Nobody's Hero


First rule of surviving the Wastelands: don't get caught outside after the sun sets...

After her father was killed in a warg attack, Riley Kincaid was forced to stand on her own two feet in the brutal Wastelands she calls home. She knows how to survive, but when a lapse in judgment leaves her out after dark, Riley realizes she's in trouble. The sun has set, the monsters are out to play, and there's a band of reivers heading straight for her settlement. Riley needs to warn her people, but that's before she runs a handsome stranger down in her jeep. A stranger who might not be a man after all...

Kidnapping her was the worst mistake he ever made.

Dangerous outlaw, Lucius Wade, lives only for revenge. But when he kidnaps Riley in order to lure an old friend into a trap, suddenly the tables are turned. Riley has no intentions of being bait, and she tempts him in ways he hasn't felt for a long time. He's never played the hero, but suddenly a part of him wants to.

When dangerous secrets are revealed, and Luc realizes an old enemy is on his trail, he's forced to change his plans. The hunter is suddenly the hunted, and the only allies he has... is a stubborn blonde who thinks there should be more to live for than revenge, and the ex-friend who shoved a knife in his back ten years ago.
