Another week has come and gone. And what a week it’s been! Let’s go over all the awesomeness this week contained (and a few things that it didn’t) in this week’s WeeKKend Recap!

Beverly Orchid is coming (+ get your name in the book)!

Blood Orchid Beverly Orchid Anne Chaconas Karpov KinradeIt’s time for a new kind of heroine! This week, we had a BIG reveal. An exciting reveal of a co-written project we are doing with fellow wordsmith Anne Chaconas (ABC). One that features a true antihero of the female persuasion.

Please say hello to Beverly Orchid! Says Kimberly, “Bev is a complicated character who is motivated to act when others might sit back and let someone else handle the dirty work. I love her for that. I think fans will love that they can relate to her. We’ve all had those moments where we WISH we could act on our most base needs of revenge and blood justice, and that is what she does. She grabs her life by the balls and squeezes. Hard. She doesn’t always make the morally right choice. But she makes the right choice for her and her family. She does what has to be done, and she’s not afraid to get blood on her hands to do what she thinks is right.”

Blood Orchid, book one in the Beverly Orchid series, is coming in Spring 2014. Here’s what it’s about:

Beverly Orchid is out for blood.

When her twin sister ends up beaten and in a coma after taking Bev’s place at a charity event, Beverly will stop at nothing to find her sisters’ attacker and make him pay.
But this seemingly random mugging takes a sinister twist as she’s pulled deeper into the dark world of human trafficking and discovers a shocking lead in her investigation.

The attack wasn’t random. And Beverly was the intended target.

As the trail goes cold and the police give up, Beverly is forced to make a choice between what is right–and what is just.

Darkly humorous, dangerously addictive, full of mystery and ethical conundrums, Blood Orchid will have you questioning what you would be capable of when faced with the worst kind of evil humanity offers.

Add Blood Orchid to your Goodreads to-read list!
