Divinicus Nex Chronicles Book 2 – DROP DEAD DEMONS!

We know, we know. It’s long overdue, but…
So its taken awhile – as we know you’ve noticed, and we’ll give you the gory details later -
 - but here’s the latest info – cover, title and synopsis – of 
The Divinicus Nex Chronicles Book 2 - 
Thank you all for your wonderful support! You are all fabulous people and deserve a fantastic book. So we have oodles of appreciation for you bearing with us as we work to make sure it lives up to the incredible expectations you all have been emailing and commenting us about! You guys rock!!
Our wonderful cover artist, Elena Dudina whipped this awesome cover up for us. 
Here’s the full front/back cover.
Pretty snazzy, yeah? Yes, people do still say “snazzy.” Mostly Alyssa.
You can check out Elena’s Deviant Art page.

Oh, you wanted to know what the heck Aurora and the Hex Boys are up to in DROP DEAD DEMONS? 
Guess that makes sense. Well…

Seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey has figured out why everyone is trying to kill her…now she just needs to figure out how to stop them.

Between all the hell-hired assassins and secret society traitors hunting her down, Aurora didn’t think life as the Divinicus Nex could get worse.

Sure, she’s discovered some lethal powers of her own. Plus, six sexy, super-charged, demon-hunting Hex Boys are watching her back. And yes, Aurora doesn’t mind running into the muscled arms of the hottest one—and he’s not complaining either.

But when a seductive stranger with questionable motives delivers a deadly ultimatum, Aurora and the Hex Boys plunge into a do-or-die hunt for a legendary treasure that will either finally shift power in their favor or unleash hell on earth.

Pursued by demons of mythical proportions, Aurora and the Hex Boys race deeper into a shadowy world of a centuries old mystery and brutal conspiracy, where no one and nothing is what it seems. Where love and betrayal go hand-in-hand, and trusting the wrong person not only breaks your heart, but can get you killed.

Hiding her Divinicus Nex status from those chasing her, lying to her pretend-wish-he-were-real boyfriend, dodging demons, breaking into tombs, hunting her blackmailer, and passing Physics…Aurora could do that in her sleep.

Or more likely, die trying.

We had setbacks and we apologize – but know that after much blood, sweat, and tears, there were many lessons learned and we won’t have them again. AND the good news is that we are in final edits with our awesome and fabulous editor. 
We don’t want to jinx anything with a specific release date at this point so we’ll just say by early summer. Could go faster but don’t want to promise and have something come up. However, we will post regularly on our progress! 
Please forgive us for putting you through this excruciating wait. And keep the home fires burning for Aurora and those hot, hottie Hex Boys!
So, in case we haven’t said it enough, THANK YOU and we love you for all the support and patience you have shown. And rest assured that Aurora and the Hex Boys will be available to you soon for another fun-filled, action-packed, recklessly romantic thrill ride!

When is the second Divinicus Nex book coming out?

Over here at the U.S.S. Enterprise, we Kirks are THRILLED with the enthusiastic response to Demons at Deadnight. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
A lot of you have been asking when Aurora and the Hex Boys are coming back. We just listed it on Goodreads but wanted to let you know we’re currently working on editing the second book in the Divinicus Nex Chronicles.

As we get closer and have more details we’ll shout them out so you can get your Hex-traordinary fix!

Thanks for all your support!
And now we return to the writing cave…

Thanks everyone for following! We hope you had as much fun as we did. We’re in the midst of sending off all the prizes won from the tour stops along the way

 Forgive us our delay, we’ve been dealing with snow up here in our mountains. Beautiful, but dangerous to drive to the post office in. Unless you’re Mr. Kirk/Dad and enjoy purposely sliding and spinning out on narrow roads. He claims it’s “fun.” We think that’s the fastest way to die of a heart attack.

The post office is right over that hill. Just stick to the yellow line.
What do you mean you can’t see it?

And for those of you who didn’t win a copy, we’ve put DEMONS AT DEADNIGHT on sale for .99 cents as a thank you for all the wonderful support that everyone gave us!

Am I The Only One Having Fun With My Kids?

Seriously, it can’t just be me. And if it is, parents are missing out on so much.

What brought this up? Glad you asked.

1) Jake (newly minted 19 years old) picked up a cough a couple of weeks ago. Usually they go away. This time it didn’t. Admittedly I don’t take my teens to the doctor over every ache, pain, and in this case, cough. But it persisted and Gregory kicked him out of their room because he couldn’t get any sleep. On the couch in the living room, Jake was now keeping the rest of us up. Fun.

2) Gregory (17 soon to be 18) has had a winning soccer season but has taken a beating. At nearly 6’1″, only 143 lbs and 4% body fat, he’s not a big kid with a load of bulk for protection. When a 220 lb defender trucked him from behind last week (because Gregory beat the jerk – do I sound bitter?), Gregory flew a good 15 feet. The knee to his back, and the flying bit – or rather the landing – was a bit painful.

So with both their persistent coughs and pains, I took them to the doctor yesterday. As I signed the boys in they filled out the form the receptionist gave them and the conversation went like this:

Jake: It’s asking why I’m here? What should I say?

Me: Why are you here?

Jake: The cough?

Me: No hon. We’re here because you broke your nose 5 years ago and I’m still so mad that you put a bump on a perfectly straight piece of perfection that I busted my butt to create, suffering incredible discomfort for 9 months culminating in the worst pain known to man – sorry, woman because man will never know the reality of the excruciating pain that comes from the equivalent of pushing a watermelon out of their hoo-haa. And we’re here to have the doctor break it and re-set it back to it’s original state because how dare you mess the faultless achievement that God and I worked so hard to put together.  

Jake: *giving me “the look”* So…cough?

Me: How about mental defect?

Gregory: I’ll back you up on that one.

Jake: Funny. Cough it is. Hmmm. Now let’s see. *reads the next question on form* Allergies? *After a pause and sideways glance at me, he starts writing and says loudly* Myyyy mother.

At which point I crack up. The receptionist gives up trying to stifle her laughter and asks, “Do you guys always have this much fun? My teenager will hardly even talk to me.”

I know I’m not the only one. Who else is having fun with their kids?

And by the way, Gregory wants the world to know that his resting heart rate is 44. I thought he was going to kiss the nurse. She did get a hug. At his peak Lance Armstrong’s resting heart rate was 34 so now that’s Gregory’s new goal. Yeah, he’s so fit, he’s almost dead.

Demons at Deadnight Blog Tour

Guess what starts tomorrow?

Demons at Deadnight Blog Tour Banner

Natalie over at Mindful Musings is kicking it off tomorrow. You’ve heard us rave about Demons at Deadnight, but I think its time you had a chance to see what others think about it.

PLUS we’re giving away a TON of prizes, including a KINDLE FIRE! Oh yeah, we’re awesome. If you want your chance to win just hop on over to our blog tour/giveaway page.

May I have this dance?

So funny thing happened today.

Gregory proved me right!

He came home from school and asked us to explain why the girls were constantly giggling at him.

To me the answer is obvious. Gregory is 17 years old, 6ft tall, blond, lean, all muscle, shy, genuinely sweet and charming, a sports star, straight-A student, martial arts champion, lifeguard, and, to top it all off, he’s ridiculously good looking. (But I’ll deny any of this in court.) Gee, why on Earth would a 16-year- old-girl giggle if he smiled at her?

But Gregory did something new to have the ladies pawing at him. Because today the P.E. coach had them Swing dance. And not only does Gregory love to dance, he’s amazing at it. (Reminding you of any Hex Boy?)

In typical clueless guy fashion, Gregory says,

“I was just dancing with B, you know, twirling and spinning and dipping her, and she kept on giggling. None of the other girls were giggling with their guys. Then the girls were asking Coach if they could trade partners. ‘But Coach says, ‘Sorry ladies, there just isn’t enough of Greg to go around.’ As soon as they started dancing with me, they’d start giggling. Coach even gave me the one girl in class who complained ALL DAY about how lame dancing was and then she was giggling like the rest of them. Now all the guys are asking what I did. So…what did I do?”

The answer: Gregory knows how to dance whereas the other guys say dancing is lame and break girls’ toes.

Pssh, my brothers thought I was lying, but they are living proof that girls really do love a guy who can dance.

At least the girls around here love it.
What about you? Do you like a guy that can dance?

And NO you may not have Gregory’s number. Honestly, the nerve of some people. But you can go check out Melissa’s Hex Boys My Book Boyfriend post where she magically brings all the Hex Boys to gorgeous life!

Release Day for DEMONS AT DEADNIGHT by A&E Kirk


DEMONS AT DEADNIGHT has it’s official birthday today!

For seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey, survival is a lifestyle. 

Aurora has the crappiest superpower on the planet. And it’s just unleashed a hit squad from hell. Demons are on the hunt, salivating to carve her carcass into confetti.

The Hex Boys—mysterious, hunky, and notorious for their trails of destruction—have the answers Aurora needs to survive. But their overload of deadly secrets and suspicious motives makes trusting them a potentially fatal move.

The battle to save her family, herself, and stop demonic domination may cost Aurora everything worth living for, and force her to reveal her own dark secrets. But no worries. She needs the Hex Boys to pull this off, and, chances are, teaming up with these guys will get her killed anyway.

Lea at YA Book Queen received a copy and she has given us enthusiastically positive feedback! She also did an awesome Book Birthday post, where she is doing a very generous giveaway! For three ebooks of DEMONS AT DEADNIGHT! She’s fantastic! 
Jake and Gregory also put up a giveaway post at TEENS READ AND WRITE so with all this love and support, we thought we should do one too!
