While I haven't had a lot of time for reading this summer, unfortunately, I did finish this novel about a week ago. I absolutely love this series, which is kind of weird because I don't typically like zombie anything, but there is something about the characters in this novel that just keeps me coming back. This is the second book in the series, and I definitely plan on moving on to book three when I get a chance.
Right now most of my novels are on sale as part of the summer sale at Smashwords. You can find my author page at https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/mariahooley. Use coupon code SSW50!
Over the last few months, the wonderfully talented Christine Buoy has been working hard to bring October Breezes to life as an audio book. I have to say I was really impressed when I listened to her efforts. She has really done a remarkable job with each of the characters, especially Skye.
You can currently find this audio book at http://www.audible.com/search/ref=a_hp_tseft?advsearchKeywords=october+breezes&filterby=field-keywords&x=0&y=0

This year, I decided to try something new—audio books. The first of my novels coming soon to Audible will be October Breezes. I have a wonderfully talented narrator lined up who is already hard at work to bring this story to life in a whole new way. Once the release gets closer, I will definitely provide more information. Until then, here is another secret worth sharing—Skye and Devin’s journey may not be over. It’s no secret that Devin is my favorite character, and I would definitely love to spend more time with him. How about you?
After a bit of a break, I’m back in the writing world. Last December, I released the electronic versions of Soujourner Soulseeker: Conduit. I am currently working on the print version, and I hope to have it out as well in the next few weeks. In case you haven’t seen the gorgeous cover by the amazingly talented Phatpuppy Art, I have placed it below.
I’ve also been editing the very last of the Dreamwalker novels—Dreamwalker: Abattoir. I am hoping to finish the edits and get it out very soon, as well. This is the book that ties it all together. While Misha did ban Elijah from his own world, she forgot to keep her world out of his reach, and bad things are happening that just might cost Misha all she holds dear.
As far as new writing, my imagination has been everywhere—from swimming with mermaids in the new series Ocean Song that I’ve been creating to battling vampires with Angels in another series. I’m guessing 2016 is going to be one paranormal year, and I hope it is a very good one for you!
Although it seems like it has taken me forever, I have finally released Sojourner Soulseeker: Conduit. As I get confirmation from the different retailers that the book is up, I will post links, so please check back on the novels page for the links. I'm adding the blurb below so you can read about the story line of Lev and Elizabeth's current adventure.
Sojourner Soulseeker: Conduit
After all the trials Elizabeth Moon and Lev have endured, they feel sure they can finally leave behind the supernatural forces that transformed him from a sojourner into a human and very nearly killed her in the process, but to have been marked by the supernatural is no small thing, and it’s certainly not a temporary one. Elizabeth is now a target for creatures not meant to walk this earth.
Always before, Lev’s powers have saved her, but this time he’s facing an army of darkness which has come to use Elizabeth as a conduit for their dark purposes.
Lev has struggled against his newfound mortality from the beginning. He’s a human ill-equipped to deal with that humanity, and when Elizabeth is taken once again, he must find a way to rise against the darkness and be as strong as the angel he was in order to get her back.
