Want to know more about One Kiss before you buy it HERE? Here’s an excerpt. Enjoy!
I’m very proud to introduce my new serial: Transmissions from the International Council for the Exploration of the Universe. The first book in this new serial, ONE KISS, is live now on Amazon.
I’ve been working on this paranormal side project for at least two years with the ideas beginning to percolate long before that. While I grew up with mysteries and that genre has been my thing for as long as I can remember in the last decade I’ve gotten into paranormal, apocalyptic, urban fantasy books. I love reading them and so, of course, my brain couldn’t help but start writing one.
Not only is this a new genre for me, but I’m also publishing it as a serial rather than in complete books. Which means that each installment is about 70 pages, takes a about an hour to read, and builds upon the one before it. Because One Kiss is so unlike anything else I’ve done before I’m using a pen name. E.J. Kimelman. I know, it’s not really that under cover but I just want to be clear that One Kiss is different: The sex is more graphic, the violence more vivid, the world populated by both humans and immortal beings. There is still a sharply drawn female protagonist, foul language, and tons of heart pounding action and suspense.
Here is the cover and Blurb:
A new, dangerous street drug is spreading through Crescent City. A hallucinogen that causes violent attacks, incredible strength, and leaves its victims in a permanently altered state.
Darling Price’s band, Higgs and the Bosons, is on the verge of their big break. If only she could get her act together and play the way she did before her best friend and musical inspiration, Megan Quick, fell fatally ill, then disappeared.
With only weeks to live Megan wasn’t even strong enough to visit the bathroom by herself, yet, somehow she climbed out of her window and left.
Even though it’s been months, Darling can’t stop looking for Megan. Still hoping to find her alive is insane. Her obsession is pissing off her band mates and Darling is worried it might trigger her hallucinations. She hasn’t been sick since Megan and she ran away from their foster home to Crescent City at the age of 13.
They took a blood oath, pressing bleeding palms together, promising that no matter what they’d stay with each other. So how could Megan leave her? It’s a mystery Darling can’t solve and refuses to let go of.
Since Megan’s disappearance Darling has started to feel a gnawing hunger. No food or drink or drug can quench it. It’s a hunger she’s felt before, but has convinced herself wasn’t real. Because what Darling feels, and the vivid memories from her early childhood, are all impossible.
As the drug spreads through the city and the world begins to unravel, Darling’s lack of musical inspiration becomes the least of her problems as she comes to recognize that all of her assumptions about the universe may be wrong.
One Kiss is recommended for adults who enjoy themes of friendship and romance at the end of the world; sex, violence, foul language and a wild apocalyptic adventure populated by both humans and immortal beings.
This is a 27,000 word (about 70 page) installment of a serial and ends on a cliffhanger.
I hope you’ll give it a try!
