The Trouble with Death and Demon Gods is out!

The first book in the Cary Redmond series, The Trouble with Black Cats and Demons, released on September 13, 2019. That was a Friday the 13th, and we picked that date because it was impossible to resist. 

The main novels in the series cover Cary's seventh year as a Protector, her seventh year test, and the new release is the seventh book in the series. And when we realized there was yet another Friday the 13th conveniently placed in the month when this book was due to release, well, we couldn't resist that either.

THE TROUBLE WITH DEATH AND DEMON GODS, Book 7 in the Cary Redmond series, is out now! It's available in eBook, Trade paperback, and Large Print paperback editions from most booksellers. It can also be obtained through most library systems, but you will probably have to request it from your librarian.

A Cary Redmond Novel, Book 7

Trouble’s Last Stand...

Magical Protector Cary Redmond has not been enjoying her test year. Discovering she absorbs magic, figuring out how to release that magic, and dealing with enemies from her past regularly complicates her life. Her seventh year has been overflowing with Trouble. And way too many demons and vampires

Now, with only two months left to go, Cary must face her greatest enemy again. Not to stop him. But to protect him.

Family squabbles suck. And when they involve demons, chances of realm destruction are high. Cary will need all the help she can get in this epic stand against the forces of evil. Because if she can’t stop the demons this time…

Her world will burn.


Originally, I had intended for this to be the last book in the series, at least the main novel series. There was something really symmetrical and pleasing to releasing seven books covering Cary's seventh year as a Protector. And while this book does take Cary to the end of that's probably not going to be the last book.

There are stories I couldn't finish, or only got to hint at, in this book, and I want to explore those storylines. So there will be at least one more novel in the future. And depending on what happens in that book, maybe one more after that. Who knows, there might even been more after that. I love writing in Cary's world and will likely keep on writing in her world until I get tired of it. So this isn't the end for Cary, not by a long shot.


Next month, check back for some stand alone short story releases and some news on something new I have coming in July--a "now for something completely different" announcement. Except, it's not completely different. Just a little different. The completely different is due at the end of the year. *grin*
