Book Description:

Enter a world of Greek Myth and Legend…

Sloane Bowman has only been doing this huntress gig for a few months, but already she has lost a dear friend and the man she loves in the boughs of hell and now she is determined to find them, so she can safely bring them back home to Charleston.

The only problem is that she has no idea where the entrance to the three hells beneath the United States is located and to top it off, she now has a new, dangerous enemy.

Her two grandfathers, Hercules and Apollo, can’t help her and her Aunt Artemis is busy on a hunt. Her team consists of her newfound family, an angst ridden teenage ghost, a know-it-all vegetarian ogre and an annoying, albeit handsome, alcohol swilling vampire who are helping her search for clues. Will she be able to navigate the treacherous tunnels of hell or will a threat from long ago threaten to tear her entire world apart?

 

Behind The Scenes:

Writing this book was a complete joy. I couldn’t wait to get started and I finished the rough draft in less than a month. When the idea to separate Sloane and Cristiano came to mind, I kind of ran with it, and came up with the idea to do an adventure story in a sense.

I loved introducing and teasing an extremely dangerous and unhinged villain who is going to be quite a foe in the next story. I am also presenting to my readers a few very key characters that will play important roles in the next series, which will be connected to The Huntress Chronicles.

While this book was fun to write, I have to admit after doing the chapter outlines for the third and final novel, I am fully aware of the dreaded emotional roller coaster that I am going to put myself and my readers through. I can only ask that you have faith in the story and the characters!

Wings of The Warrior, book three in The Huntress Chronicles, will be released in October and I am excited to unveil the book cover!

WoW

 

Thanks to all my readers for their continued support. I read each and every comment and email. I love to hear from you and I hope you enjoy this new book and series!

Wings of The Fallen Blurb

Just a quick post today. I am in the middle of formatting Wings of The Fallen and I thought I would share with you the blurb!

Official Blurb:

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. – Socrates

Sloane Bowman has left everything she has ever known behind. After her mother and father were both killed in a mysterious accident, she flees her home, searching for peace in her grief-stricken state of mind and shattered soul. Almost immediately, she encounters two strangers who point her in the direction of Charleston, SC.

The historic city intrigues her, but before she can catch her breath, a long-forgotten person from the past reveals himself to her and her life is turned even more upside down. Sloane finds herself plunged into a world of incredible myths and ancient legends. A world she had only ever read about in books was now her reality.

The truth about who her parents were in a former life and what this means for herself, overwhelms and distresses her at first, but she conquers those fears and she must not only accept her lineage, but also her fate.

Her newfound family provides her with the help and support she desperately needs, but a devastatingly handsome and dangerous vampire challenges her at every turn. Sloane discovers not only who she is meant to be, but also the true meaning of trust and faith as she navigates down this treacherous new path.

 

I can’t wait for you to read it!

Release date is May 1, 2018!

Weekly Update & Random Musings

I thought I would take a moment to update everyone on what was happening here at Shannon Barczak Books.

Wings of The Fallen is currently getting ready for the final edit before formatting. It’s an exhausting, yet daunting undertaking, but I am ready for this new book to be released on May 1, 2018.

I also can announce the formal title of the series…

Wings of The Fallen

The Huntress Chronicles Part I

Yes, The Huntress Chronicles will have three parts, but I have another announcement…

This is the start of a nine book arc.

Yup, NINE books.

Image result for you cray cray

I know. Nine books and I am just hoping that you enjoy this journey I am going to take you on.

Book Two of the series, Wings of The Brave is finished and I am just adding the last touches to my first edits before sending it off into the red pen realm of my editor.

Wings of The Brave has a tentative release date of July 1, 2018.

The third book in the series… Wings of The Warrior has already been written and planned out in my head. I just need to do a quick outline and get started on the small task of transferring the story from brain to computer.

The book cover will be revealed shortly and I will release the blurb for book one next week.

What else….?

I am also editing and adding my own touches to the first ensemble comic book novel by SeppinRek.  As some of you are aware, my sons own a fledgling comic book novel company and I contributed to their first phase of their new series.

We have been working on and discussing this next book for quite some time. It has been a labor of love for us all and I am beyond proud, and excited, to even witness this amazing collaboration, much less be a part of it.

It’s a ridiculously busy time. The boys are about to enter their final weeks of their first year at college and the stress level over exams are at their peak.

(EEK)

And my daughter is also entering a new phase as she graduates elementary school and goes on to middle school in a little over a month.

(Double EEK)

I think the reason I decided to take on the humongous task of a nine book series is because I have a burning desire to keep myself busy within the world of fantasy,

The real world is too much to contemplate and move about in at the moment.

So…anyway…LOL.

Next week, book cover reveals and the blurb for the first novel. I cannot wait for you all to read this book. I am obsessed with the characters and this series as a whole.

I just hope you will be as well!

The Wicked Thorn is Released!

the-cursed-charm-1

 

Well, it has taken a lot of blood, sweat and tears, but The Wicked Thorn has been released!

This book has put me through the wringer. I had so much fun writing it, but I was also plagued with anxiety and insecurity.

I have no idea if anyone is going to like it, but I am finally getting past that worry because I actually love it and I can’t wait to write more in this genre.

Although, honestly, I’ve kind of made this genre up.

Is it first and foremost a love story? Yes!

Is it a crime romance? Sort of.

Is it a contemporary romance with crime and vigilante justice? Yes.

Do I hope that you love it as much as I do? Yes!

 

Official Blurb:

*The Wicked Thorn Strikes Again*

*A Thorn in the Mayor’s Side?*

*The Wicked Thorn Saves Family from Burning Building*

*New Task Force Assembled to Catch Boston’s Wicked Vigilante*

The headlines were screaming and the city was reeling from the appearance of a new vigilante in town!

Boston was ripe with corruption and criminal activity after the economic downturn. The police, though, had a new threat as the rise of a vigilante, nicknamed The Wicked Thorn, threatened to undermine their entire department. The masked hero was quickly gaining admirers, but could he truly save his beloved city from crime?

Bry McKenna is a best-selling young adult author that seemingly has is all going for her at such a young age. Her fans see her as a fresh voice in this genre, but in private, she is struggling to break free from her family’s overprotective, watchful eye and become more independent. As she spreads her wings, she not only finds her voice, but she also meets an intriguing, charming new man.

As her life crosses paths with The Wicked Thorn, and she becomes more entangled with vigilante justice than she ever dreamed of, will she be able to accept him and his life, or will she walk away before she in too deep?

Join Bry as she enters this foreign and violent reality. A world where vigilantes are real and the need to protect those they love are even more passionate than she could have ever imagined.

*The Wicked Thorn is intended for mature readers.*

*This book contains violence and sexual scenes not intended for a young audience.*

Awakened Moon is Released!

It’s finally here! I feel like this book was a long time in coming. After taking almost four months off, getting back into the writing groove was tough, but the wait as it was being uploaded onto KDP felt like a full year.

This was quite an interesting story for me to write. Marianna is so different from any character I have ever written. She is prim and proper, but also sweet and kind.

Maximus is somewhat mercurial and I feel like it is going to take a bit for the reader to really get a read on both of them. I also added a twist at the end so what you thought you knew is completely the opposite.

The whole cast of characters are back and while I always enjoy writing my favorites, it was hard to make everyone blend together cohesively. I must say that creating a six book series is a huge challenge and I’m not sure if I will be attempting that again anytime soon!

Surrendered Moon is up next and I have already outlined the final book in The Hidden Realm Series. I’m excited to plunge deeper into Maximus and Marianna’s love, as well as, wrap the series up to a final conclusion.

I hope you all enjoy Awakened Moon. I realize that it took a while for it to be released and I want to thank you for your patience and unwavering support.

 

Official Blurb

Lady Marianna of Fairyland is a shining example of dignity and decorum. Orphaned when she was a small child, Marianna was raised by the former Queen, and brought up with her cousin King Killian.
Her betrothal to the King of the Werewolves was well regarded as a fine match and made when she was just five years of age, but she remembers him as the young king she fell in love with on a starlit night when she was sixteen. The next morning, Maximus disappeared, and no one knew that he had been kidnapped by his evil uncle Bernard.

Two hundred years later, Maximus has returned from his torturous imprisonment after Killian and Wick rescue him, and dispense of Bernard. Maximus finally comes to Fairyland so he can claim his bride to be.

The only problem is that Lady Marianna is not the idealistic young girl she used to be and Maximus is also plagued with his own demons.

Can they reclaim what once was and awaken their long lost dreams or will another evil tear them apart?

Journey back to The Hidden Realm Series as Marianna and Maximus engage in a battle of wits and fight for love!
