Bonita's Geeky Blog-Fu!

“In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer.”

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a HUGE Buffy fan (I miss you, Buff…Sigh).  It’s creator, Joss Whedon (along with Shakespeare and my hubby), is a big influence on my writing. I love the snappy dialogue, the mix of humor and horror and, above all, the deeply layered characters. No one is all good or all bad. And that is what makes them human (even the vamps).

So, I was super excited that the fellas (Tim Blevens and Bob Canning) at 20th Centery Pop asked me to be a guest on their show to discuss the Chosen One!

Take a listen


I think it’s time for another Buffy-thon!

Reader Wednesday — New BEAST NAVIDAD Cover Reveal!

Bonita's Geeky Blog-Fu!

Last year, my writing partner, Camilla Ochlan, and I revamped our look with high-octane covers for THE WEREWOLF WHISPERER and THE ALPHA & OMEGA. We were so thrilled with the supercharged result that we decided to give our novellas their own revved up remake!

Thanks to Christian Bentulan for his cover design. And special thanks to Carol E. Leever for creating one badass werewolf skull.

Lucy and Xochi’s highway to hell is cooler than ever!

Drum roll, please…

Check out our festive new BEAST NAVIDAD cover!

It is a time of fragile peace. Lucy Lowell and Xochitl Magaña’s Were rescue, rehabilitation (and removal) road trip up and down California has turned them into a badass, slammin’ team of gun-slinging Were wranglers. Skills honed, fame licking at their boots, the women have no idea that in the City…

Hurrah! Cover Reveal for Book 4 OF CATS AND DRAGONS!

Deciding on one image to convey all of the magic, adventure, and hijinks that mark Omen’s continuing quest sure wasn’t easy. Carol and I are so pleased with Samantha Key’s beautiful illustration for the Hollow Season cover.


What’s ist all about?
It is the season of monsters, and wild magic rules the land.
Young warrior bard Omen Daenoth and his intrepid companions —the prince of Terizkand, a Sundragon scholar, a cynical spy, a reckless Corsair, not to mention the talking cats — journey toward the looming Mountain of Shadow.
But how will they rescue the kidnapped king and lift the curse of the faerie sorceress when every step along their way is wrought with murderous creatures and lethal magic? And what exactly is the secret of the Cypher Runes?

What do you do when your talking cat accepts a crazy quest?
If you’re Omen, you jump right in.

And before Omen knows it, he’s crossing the Luminal Sea on a miraculous ship called the Golden Voyage. But the voyage is anything but golden.

In the shadow of a devastating hex, pursued by a stealer of souls, with both interference and help from Tormy and the potty-mouthed kitten Tyrin, Omen faces monsters, ghosts, and grave troubles unshackled by the volatile seasons.

The entire OF CATS AND DRAGONS series is available on Audible right now.

Bonita's Geeky Blog-Fu!

It’s shameless plug time. Why? Because two of my novellas just received excellent reviews. My fellow authors get  why this is such a big deal. Reviews are hard to come by for any book, but doubly hard for the smaller titles in a series.

Novellas are often overlooked (IMHO, they’re harder to market). We indie authors usually give them away as incentives. So when a reader actually takes the time to review a freebie or smaller story in a series, it’s cause to celebrate!


So, put on your dancin’ shoes and electric slide through these titles!

BEAST NAVIDAD and BEAST OUT OF HELL tell the tale of team WEREWOLF WHISPERER as they travel up and down California, helping the “Afflicted” and occasionally hunting Werebeasts.
