“Release Day”

“Release Day”

Two days to go,
and I’m feeling it again, as I always do, as is my gifted curse.
That twisted, knotted, slithering sensation in the pit of me.
The chasm yawns open and I’m shoved to the precipice
in a buffeting wind.
I hug myself hard and close my eyes.
One wish… two… third one’s the charm.
I hope? Oh God I hope.
Teeth gnashing, nerves crackling, gut roiling, world tilting.
Will I fall?
Or will I fly?

    I’ve very recently been introduced to your books, read the BBW series and have just finished both Vampire and Phantom King……..love love your writing!!! I quite literally haven’t been able to put the books down and I love the characters so much. Thank you for producing such wonderful reads.


    P.s. no pressure, but can I have Warlock King now please lol!!

  7. HRKW says:

    Thank you Lindsey! 🙂 I’m really glad you’re enjoying my work! I’m not sure whether you’re interested in other genres, but I have quite a few other books out as well. The Lost Angels series is paranormal romance through print publishers. Angels, vampires, all sorts of paranormal monsties. The Chosen Soul series is also paranormal, but it’s fantasy and the romance (though heart-rending) is less erotic. Hell Bent is a romantic thriller (lots of peoples’ favorite of my works). Forever Neverland is young adult fantasy. The October Trilogy is young adult paranormal romance…. Lots to choose from. 🙂 Thank you for reading!! xoxo

    Heather I have read many of your books in the past 9 months since I got my Kindle. I am really enjoying them. Is there a site to find out when the next book in the series of the Vampire King and Phantom King will be released? You are very gifted and I’m looking forward to the next book. I hope you and your family have enjoyed the summer. Please fly that would be something.

    Hi Deevie! 🙂 Thank you for the kind feedback. I”m really glad that you’re enjoying my work. Don’t have a release date just yet for The Warlock King (third book in The Kings series), but I’m hoping to have one soon, and as soon as I do, I’ll be on here and on Facebook (both pages), on Twitter, and on my newsletter to let everyone know. 🙂 Thank you for reading! xoxo

    Heather, I love your work and have read all of your books! I’m wondering when you’ll be releasing the 3rd ‘Chosen Soul’ book?

  11. HRKW says:

    Hi Mara! Thank you – I’m really glad you’re liking my work! I don’t have a release date yet for Queen of Abaddon, but I am working on it right now. As soon as I have a date, I will FB it on both FB sites, tweet it, and newsletter it. 🙂

    I just got done reading the 1st three books in the Lost Angels series… it was wonderful!! I’ve been searching online to see when the next one comes out but haven’t found anything – would love to know if there is a date or time frame so I can keep and eye out for the book!!


  13. Pristine says:

    Do you have an idea of when the third book from The Chosen Soul series will be released?

  14. Christina says:

    Wanted to see if anyone knows when the lost angles book #4 will be coming out?

  15. Danielle says:

    I recently found this series and honestly I think it is amazing. I’m waiting (semi-patiently) for this 3rd book. I flew through the first two, even going as far as reading straight through the night and at stop lights lol Thank you for the awesome books and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series.

  16. mary says:

    I am also waiting to hear when it will be released. Great series! I hope a happy ending awaits Drake and Raven.

  17. Lynn says:

    Hi Heather! Just dropped by to see if there was any information on the release date of Queen of Abaddon?? Thanks for your wonderful escapes from reality! This working mom really needs them!! 😉

  18. HRKW says:

    Hi Lynn – I’m really pleased that you are enjoying the series. I’m hoping to release QoA in 2014. xo

  19. Amy says:

    When can we expect the 3rd neverland and chosen soul books? I got sucked in and have to see how it goes!

  20. HRKW says:

    Hi Amy – there are only two Neverland books: Forever Neverland and Beyond Neverland. It was decided the series should end there and was wrapped up very nicely. As for the Chosen Soul series, I am making no promises but hope to have news on it soon. At the moment, I can only officially leave it TBA, but… winter would be a wonderful time for that particular one to release, don’t you think? 🙂
