Summary of Ruby's Fire, my award-winning novel in Secret Worlds:

“Eighteen year-old Ruby and her little brother Thorn, have only known a life blighted by the extremist Fireseed Cult. The night Ruby is set to be claimed by one of its cruelest and oldest leaders, she makes a bid for freedom. With Thorn in tow, she stumbles into the world beyond, and finds an opportunity for a fresh start in Skull’s Wrath under the guidance of Nevada Pilgrim, a woman who may not be all she seems. Ruby's new life could bring her friendship, love, even fortune, but nothing comes without a price. Is Ruby's talent for elixirs keeping the roof over their heads, or do some of her associates have a more sinister and lucrative interest in them? Life outside a strange cult isn't without its dangers, and the experience leaves Ruby transformed and communing with the Fireseed more closely than she ever would have imagined. Stine delivers a thrilling adventure led by an exciting cast of characters, and the romance is really well handled.”

Secret Worlds Boxed Set
I'm very excited to be included with 20 other USA Today and Amazon Bestselling Authors in the Secret Worlds Boxed Set. Many of you are probably already familiar with my included title, THE FOREVER GIRL, but for those who aren't, here's the full blurb.

Beautiful blonde with dandelions

The Forever Girl

At twenty-two, practicing Wiccan Sophia Parsons is scratching out a living waiting tables in her Rocky Mountain hometown, a pariah after a string of unsolved murders with only one thing in common: her.

Sophia can imagine lots of ways to improve her life, but she'd settle for just getting rid of the buzzing noise in her head. When the spell she casts goes wrong, the static turns into voices. Her personal demons get company, and the newcomers are dangerous.

One of them is a man named Charles, who Sophia falls for despite her better judgment. He has connections that might help her unveil the mystery surrounding her ancestor's hanging, but she gets more than she bargains for when she finally decides to trust him.


The Forever Girl has been optioned for film and published internationally by Harlequin in Germany (now HarperCollins of Germany) and IPC Books of Hungary. It has nearly 500 Amazon reviews. Normally you can purchase my book alone for $3.99, however, for this summer only (and the pre-order period leading up to this summer) you can snag a copy of this title WITH 20 OTHER ADDITIONAL TITLES all in 1 Boxed Set for $0.99! That comes out to less than a nickel per book! You can learn more about the boxed set HERE or you can order your copy on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, or iBooks. While you're here, though, why not take a moment to learn more about the complete line up! I've included a super short blurb of every title in the collection. Some are not yet available and being introduced exclusively through the boxed set, but ALL of the titles are professionally edited and not a single one ends on a cliffhanger!

Fantasy girl taking magic light in her hands. Mysterious Night s My novel, Changeling, included in the boxed set, is a (full-length) New Adult paranormal romance . . .

Somebody is murdering the Pixies. They've been dropping like flies in this small college town.

Skye's a teen witch who sucks at spells and is skeptical about the idea of winged Tinker Bells. But strange things have been going on at the metaphysical shop, The Green Fairy, where she works nights: black specks of movement out of the corner of her eye, mysterious buzzing noises, unidentified dragonfly carcasses in the basement, and a hidden cache of absinthe (aka fairy crack).

Kheelan is a human changeling. Raised with the fairies, he's viewed as an inferior species whose only use is to serve his kidnappers. He's been totally screwed by the Fae and his only goal in life is freedom. When he meets Skye, he sees an opportunity to escape. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by feelings for this quirky witch.

Skye stumbles upon the remains of dead fairies and is approached by Kheelan who has been sent to investigate the pixie murders. Funny thing is--he looks exactly like a part-time employee of the store who has autism. Skye falls for Kheelan, only to discover he's using her to win his freedom.

Hard to believe she's really half-fairy and has secret powers when she can never get a spell to work right. But one night, after years of painful backaches from what she thought was scoliosis, Skye discovers a pair of sprouted wings.

As Samhain, the witch's Halloween, draws near, she must make a bold move to claim her heritage and power, restore order in the fairy realm, and try to win Kheelan's freedom and love.

Absinthe, autism and augury meld into a paranormal cauldron where everything is not what it seems and the fairies are sly tricksters who can trap you in their realm.

The Pandora Principle by Noree Cosper

The moment Cassi's gaze locks with Mercer Chaplin's she know she has to have him. She scoffs when her best friend warns her to stay away. But maybe she should listen. When her aunt comes to reclaim her for the legacy of Pandora to hunt down the evils released by her troublesome ancestor, Cassi rebels. She’s determined to get as much from her last year of college as possible, including Mercer. But he's got secrets of his own. And as she falls deeper down the rabbit hole, signs begin to suggest that Mercer could be one of those evils she's fated to hunt. Too bad Cassi can’t put her heart in a box.

About Noree Cosper

Everyday became an adventure as she joined a group of role-players, acting out her fantasies of vampires, demons, and monsters living in the world.

She embraced her nerdom wholeheartedly.

Noree grew, but never left her love for fantasy and horror. Her dreams pushed her and her hand itched to write the visions she saw. So, with her fingers on the keys, she did what her heart had been telling her to do since childhood. She wrote.

In Deep ShiftDid you ever wonder how Wolfie grew from the slightly addle-pated youngster in Bloodling Wolf to the steady, solid alpha in Shiftless? Or maybe you wished you knew more about Wade's past. Either way, my newest novelette, In Deep Shift, should answer at least some of your questions. And it's free today as a thank you for following along!

Once you're done, if you enjoyed In Deep Shift, I hope you'll consider leaving a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. I'm trying out this one-day-freebie launch strategy, and whether or not I repeat the endeavor depends on how many reviews roll in during the first week. So, if you want to read my next book free on day one as well, don't forget to tell others what you thought of In Deep Shift!

Meanwhile, if you're reading this post on April 30 or later...I'm sorry, but you missed the flash free period! On the plus side, the novelette is priced at 99 cents and will be in Kindle Unlimited for the next 90 days, so checking it out still won't break the bank.


What's coming down the pike next? Well, I was hoping you'd help me decide! I always have more ideas than time to write, and there are three top contenders at the moment. If you've got a strong opinion one way or the other, I hope you'll comment and let me know which story you prefer to read first.

Option A: I thought In Deep Shift was going to be the end of Wolfie's story...but my favorite bloodling told me there's another adventure (or maybe two...) that he wants to participate in. So, Option A is another novelette that picks up where the current offering leaves off. The bonus of choosing this option is that since novelettes are only about the quarter of the length of a novel, they come out faster --- I can probably have another novelette in your hands by the middle of June.

Option B: A cat-shifter-turned-cat-burglar stole into my mind in a dream, and I haven't been able to get him out of my head since. This option would be a novel, slightly higher on the romance than Shiftless but still very much a fantastical adventure. There's a lonely veterinarian, a pre-Columbian artifact, and much more waiting to be written in this shifter novel. Estimated completion date: maybe September?

Option C: I know I left Terra hanging again, and the third novel in the series will be the dramatic conclusion. Trouble is, the plot hasn't come to me in a dream yet, so my plan at the moment is to mull over my heroine's next adventure all summer and write once the days start turning cold. If you really, really don't want to read anything except the culmination of Terra's story, though, please let me know and I'll find a way to put my thinking cap on faster!

I look forward to hearing what you think. And, as always, thanks for reading!

Hunting PenniesErrol was a war orphan, left to raise himself while his father fought in World War II and while his severely depressed mother struggled to hold together her young family.

Growing up in a backwoods town where life more closely resembled the 1920s than the 1940s, Errol hunted pennies to buy treats, surfed on borrowed skiffs behind the paddle wheels of passing river boats, and sought adult influences wherever he could find them.

Viewing this world through both a child's and an adult's eyes, Hunting Pennies offers vivid glimpses of innocence transitioning seamlessly into sophisticated efforts to find peace with the past.

With publication credits as diverse as National Public Radio's All Things Considered and Madison Review, Hess has distilled half a century of poetry into this memoir in verse, loading its pages with humor, melancholy, and a healthy dose of Huck Finn-style adventure.

Hunting Pennies is free on Amazon today, so I hope you'll consider giving it a read!

Farmstead Feast: SpringSpring is here...and so is my spring cookbook! With another dozen-plus recipes that are easy and delicious to fix using homegrown ingredients, Farmstead Feast: Spring should hit the spot. As a bonus, I've included a step-by-step guide to harvesting dandelions and taking maple syrup from tree to table, along with a quick primer on planting for a 12-month harvest.

Sound interesting? Then act fast because the book is free today only! I'm hoping to entice my kind readers to read and review quickly so the average reader (who's never heard my name) will consider taking a chance on the book. Thanks in advance if you take a minute to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads once you're done checking out my newest book!


On a related note, I'm well aware that cookbooks are a bit annoying to use in ereader form. So I've made a print version of Farmstead Feast: Winter, and marked the price down to the bare minimum Amazon would allow --- $3.99. There will be a print edition of Farmstead Feast: Spring coming down the pipe soon, too, so stay tuned!

And, finally, if you're not sure whether Farmstead Feast: Winter
is worth keeping on your shelf, come back to Amazon tomorrow and the ebook will be free for a limited time. I hope that helps you round out your cookbook collection. And, as always, thanks for reading!

TrailersteadingTrailersteading began as a joke, turned into an inspiration for aspiring homesteaders, and now --- in its expanded second edition --- the ebook contains dozens of pages of additional hands-on information to help turn that inspiration into a reality.

Even if you don't want to live in a mobile home, this book contains step-by-step instructions for replicating some of our permaculture systems, like treating greywater in a wetland that provides beautiful wildlife habitat and also grow cattails for the table.

There are sections on rain barrels and humanure, along with thirteen case studies of homesteaders who have embraced voluntary simplicity in a mobile home.

And, of course, if you think a trailer might be in your future, the book will be even more helpful with tips on insulating, fire-proofing, and much more.

Trailersteading usually goes for $5.99, but it's on sale right now for 99 cents. So snag your copy and enjoy!

Wolf RampantAmazon is a fun and easy environment where most independent authors learn to swim. But, eventually, many of us grow out of the Amazon kiddie pool and go wide, making our books available on retailers other than Amazon. Unfortunately, the waters of Google, iTunes, and so forth are dark and shark infested, and we enter those strange seas with some trepidation. Perhaps you'll ease my fright by spending five minutes helping me gain traction at the new e-retailers?

The most important way to gain a toehold at any e-retailer is reviews, and many of you have kindly written reviews of my books on Amazon in the past. Now I'm hoping you'll help me out one more time by copying and pasting your reviews to the new retailers. And, to sweeten the pot, I'm providing free Smashwords codes for each book in my Wolf Rampant series so you can download a copy and read if you haven't already. Here are the retailer links for each book:

Bloodling Wolf:


Pack Princess:

I definitely don't expect you to copy your reviews over to every site, but if you already have an account at Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Google, or Kobo, those are my top priority. Thank you in advance for helping me learn to tread water in the wider, darker ocean beyond Amazon!
