CATALYST (Vampire Apocalypse #2) Release Date

The 2nd book in the bestselling Vampire Apocalypse series will be released on October 20, 2012!

I can’t tell you how many emails and messages I’ve gotten from fans asking when this book will be out. It got delayed a little bit. What can I say? I’m a bit of a control freak and wanted to hold onto it a little longer.

Vampire Apocalypse is the major novel series I’m working on right now, meaning they are ~ 300 page novels (trade paperback size) similar to the length of the books in the DEMON KISSED series.  I expect book #3 in the Vampire Apocalypse series, DIVERGENT, to be released in December.

The giveaway for signed copies of CATALYST is still going on. Want to enter to win a copy? Simply post your review of BANE on Amazon after reading the 1st book. That’s it! I’ll pick a couple of awesome people when the time comes. Winners will be announced on the blog. US only.

I can’t wait to share the next part of Kahli’s adventure with you! If you haven’t read BANE, make sure you grab it while it’s on sale for 99 cents! It’ll go back to regular price soon.

BACKDRAFT: THE SECRET LIFE OF TRYSTAN SCOTT #2 by H.M. Ward was released today!

BACKDRAFT: THE SECRET LIFE OF TRYSTAN SCOTT #2

DESCRIPTION: ”When Mari realizes that Trystan is the internet megastar, Day Jones, she can’t speak. Every time she listens to his song, it leaves her feeling so much. That song is bewitching. Everyone she knows heard it. As soon as it appeared on YouTube, it went viral, and then the guy who wrote it disappeared. Despite agents and record labels trying to lure Day5705 out, he remains anonymous. No one knows who Day Jones really is—except Mari.

To Trystan’s relief, Mari agrees to keep his secret.  Part of him regrets uploading the song, but when he sings to Mari the song that once brought him solace, it fills him joy. In a life like his, joy is fleeting and Trystan plans on grabbing hold whenever a shot at happiness appears. To his surprise, Mari doesn’t realize the song is about her. When Trystan tries to push her to see, he jeopardizes losing her entirely.

One misplaced kiss topples the fragile relationship, leaving Trystan reeling, trying to assemble the pieces and convincing Mari that she’s not just another conquest, even though everything he did—everything he said—makes it seem like she is. It isn’t until Mari decides that being the good girl isn’t working that things steam up. Trystan knows she wants to hook up with someone, and he doesn’t know if he should stop her. Every attempt he makes to win her over goes bad and pushes her further away.

As the world gets one day closer to tracking down Day Jones, Trystan is one day closer to graduation and leaving this life forever. If Mari doesn’t realize he loves her by then, she never will.”

This is the second book in THE SECRET LIFE OF TRYSTAN SCOTT series. These books are available in mass paperback and are about 240 pgs. They are condensed, steamy YA romances pivoting around Trystan and Mari. If you loved the Ivy/ Collin relationship in the first DEMON KISSED book, this is like that, but MORE!

Cover Reveal: COLLIDE (The Secret Life of Trystan Scott) by H.M. Ward (YA Romance)

YA Romance, Mature YA book, contemporary romance, secret life, hannah montanna

Cover reveal! And series reveal!

Okay, I didn’t really say anything about this series. It’s something I was working on along with NEVERLAND LOST.

COLLIDE turned into one of those stories that I can’t stop thinking about, even though it was supposed to be something on the side to play with while writing CATALYST (Vampire Apocalypse #2).

COLLIDE is about the secret life of Trystan Scott. It’s told in 1st person, from his friend Mari’s point-of-view.

Mari was assigned to run lines with Trystan after school–it’s a job any other girl would have died to get–but Mari doesn’t want to be like everyone else. She’s thinks a kiss should mean something and Trystan gives them away like jellybeans. When Mari accidentally overhears that Trystan is in love, she can’t believe it. He’s pining over some girl that doesn’t know he’s alive. The confident swagger and endless stream of girls is a facade. Mari keeps his secret, but she learns quickly about an even bigger secret to keep.

This story will be part of a series.  It’s about music, acting, art and a hot bad boy that finally meets his match.  Anticipated release: November 2012.
