Sacrifice of Love by Quinn Loftis Cover Reveal!

Sacrifice of Love, Book Seven
The Grey Wolves Series
by Quinn Loftis


As one evil falls, another rises in its place. The powerful witch, Desdemona, has finally been killed by an alliance of wolf, elf, and fae. But Reyaz, brother to Cypher the warlock king, has vowed retribution for a life that was taken from him. Now Cypher must decide not only how to protect his newfound mate and his people, but also how to destroy the only family he has left.

Meanwhile, Jen’s pregnancy progresses and the fateful due date draws ever nearer. The thought of losing Decebel’s child constantly threatens to overwhelm her. With each passing day, Decebel grows more distant, causing Jen to wonder what toll the impending loss of their child is taking on him. Unbeknownst to Jen, in an act of desperation to protect his unborn child and mate, Decebel strikes a deadly bargain with the Great Luna—his life in place of his child’s. There is only one way for that to happen; the bond between he and Jen must be broken.

As Jen as Decebel struggle through their darkness, another kind of darkness is infiltrating Fane’s heart. Doubts and questions linger as he tries to cope with the emotions brought on in the aftermath of Desdemona’s curse. He knows what happened wasn’t real, but still he can’t rid himself of the terrible images seared into his memory. Jacque is his light, the one who keeps the darkness at bay, yet he won’t let her inside to do just that.

Sally continues to learn what it means to be a gypsy healer and Costin struggles to protect her as she runs full speed ahead to help her wolves, heedless of her own safety. She sees her best friends struggling, each enduring their own trials. She’s desperate to help them, but can she keep them safe?

With all of these things hanging heavy over the heads of the Serbia and Romania packs, their attention is divided. The wolves do not even realize a threat has slowly infiltrated their midst. Will they recognize the threat in time to save the lives that precariously hang in the balance?

Against this backdrop of darkness, choices will be made, fears will confronted, and the ultimate sacrifice will be made. Will the wolves stand together to defeat the threats arrayed against them, both from within and without? Will love conquer all? Or will the beleaguered wolves finally succumb to their demons?

Fly Away Release Day, July 18th!

Fly Away, The Wildflower Series, Book Two 

Release Day!
July 18, 2013

Purchase it here!

Don't you just love the cover?! 


Joshua Bangs and Jordan Stone are vying for the love of Laney Stillwater. They can’t walk away because their souls have been bound by the spirits for all of eternity. 

In the second installment of The Wildflower Series, the stakes are higher than the guy getting the girl. Laney struggles with her feelings as the two boys fight for her affection, but a broken heart pales in comparison to the soul-devouring perils awaiting them in the spirit world.

Over the course of hundreds of years the past lives of the three reincarnates have proven time and time again that their love is beyond tragic. It's fatal.

You haven’t read the first book in the series? It’s available on Amazon, B&N and Smashwords for just .99 everyday but on Release Day I will give it away FREE. See the details below!

UtopYA 2013!

How awesome was it? This is how awesome...

I've just returned from my first UtopYA Conference and I'm already looking forward to next year. 

I've been to other signings and events but can honestly say that nothing I've ever done compares to the amazing experience I had this past weekend in Nashville. 

While at the event I was reunited with familiar faces, introduced to new peeps and finally greeted online pals face to face. The atmosphere of the event was unifying and I felt welcome and accepted. It allowed me the opportunity to ask the questions I'd been afraid to ask, learn to ask questions I didn't know I should and rest assured that I wasn't as clueless as I thought I was, or at least no more than anyone else. Most importantly, I learned that a little "cluelessness" in this industry isn't that unheard of and that it's fun to learn in the company of others. 

I met a lot of really incredible individuals this weekend and can't help but mention a few. 

Kelsey Keeton, my cover art designer(KKeeton Designs), it was such an honor to meet you in person. You are such a creative talent and you have a heart of gold! I had the best time with you and Serena Cappuzzo (cover art model for Soul Quest)! I can't wait for our next adventure together!

Tamara Beard (Tamara's One Stop Indie Shop), my new publicist!!!! Woot! I hired her at the UtopYA Con, folks. How is that for networking? She is beautiful inside and out and sooooo smart! 

Hollie Westring (Hollie the Editor), my editor, it was so nice to finally see your lovely face in person. Let me tell you, this woman is gifted at what she does!

There were two keynote speakers at the conference, Jennifer Armentrout (New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author)and Jen Sincero (I downloaded my copy of You Are a Badass)! Both speakers were enlightening and entertaining. The ever present mantra - Believe in yourself and be true to who you are - truly supports what it means to be both female and indie! 

I left the conference feeling emotionally empowered and better informed about the indie writing world (which is saying something since I've been at this for three years). My only regrets... not going last year (lessoned learned!) and having to wait until next June for UtopYA 2014. If you didn't go this year make sure you register for the 2014 conference! You can do that here.
