So What Do You Get a Demon for Christmas?
December...it’s the time of year when the first snowfalls begin to cover the ground (unless, like me, you live in sunny ole Florida), when houses are decorated to bursting with lights, and when people are in a festive, giving mood. So that got me to thinking, what on earth would you get a demon for Christmas?
First off, the demons in my DEMONS OF INFERNUM series aren’t evil creatures from Hell, but a race of beings who’ve come to Earth from another dimension. They don’t celebrate Christmas where they’re from, but they aren’t against the holiday. More like mystified by it. A holiday centered around a baby in a manger and a fat guy who breaks into other peoples’ houses to leave them gifts? Weird...but they can adapt.
So what do you get for a demon with little understanding of the meaning behind the holiday?
• A book detailing the history behind Christmas: If it doesn’t get read, it can always serve as a drink coaster. ☺
• Liquor: Ah yes, the reason for that aforementioned coaster! Demons have a faster metabolism than humans, so they can put down a lot more alcohol. And who doesn’t need a swig or 10 during the holidays?
• A dagger with a wicked blade: Because my demon boys always seem to get into trouble. Yeah, guns are easier and work from farther away, but the only surefire way to kill another demon or Otherworld species is by beheading. So yeah, make sure that blade is really sharp.
• A collection of T-shirts with smartass sayings: Okay, it’s not for every demon, but Taeg, one of the half demon brothers in my series, can’t get enough of them. Among some of his favorites? (1) Real Men Don’t Follow Directions; (2) Why Do Today What You Can Put off Until Tomorrow?; and (3) Awesome in Bed...I Can Sleep for Hours.
Here’s a little more about my latest release in the DEMONS OF INFERNUM series, Touch of the Angel (Book 3):
After months of no work, interdimensional bounty hunter Ronin Meyers jumps at the chance to locate an incubus who’s using succubi as murder weapons. Faced with deportation to hellish Infernum if he fails, Ronin will stop at nothing to take out the incubus and anyone else involved. Even the beautiful succubus who stole his heart—and nearly his life—during the most mind-blowing hour of his existence.
Night after night, Amara and her fellow succubi are forced to extract special abilities from the strongest Otherworlders for their psychotic master’s growing collection. When the gorgeous angel-demon hybrid she believed to be dead captures her, Amara is both stunned and elated.
But the happily ever after Amara’s dreamed about will have to wait. Before she and Ronin can find salvation, they must bring down the madman hellbent on destroying everything—and everyone—they love. And Ronin and Amara are at the top of his list…
