Sierra Dean Stops By

One of my favorite Urban Fantasy authors stops 
by today to answer a few questions. 
Help me welcome Sierra Dean the author 

  • What teasers can you give us about this month’s new release in the Secret McQueen series, Grave Secret

Ohhh, that’s tricky because I’m just finishing Secret Unleashed right now so I don’t want to spoil anything too far ahead. I will say it picks up RIGHT after the cliffhanger ending from Keeping Secret and not all of our beloved characters will be returning once Grave Secret is over.

  • You have 8 books listed on your website for the Secret McQueen series; will the 8th book, A Secret to Die For, be the last in the series?

A Secret to Die For is the last book in the series, and I DO know how the whole thing ends. No, I won’t give anything away, but the final few scenes of the series have been planned since book 2.

  • Do you have any tentative release dates for Secret Unleashed, Cold Hard Secret and A Secret to Die For?

Secret Unleashed will be out this fall, likely in October. The final two books will both be released in 2014, one earlier in the year and one towards winter, though I can’t say with any certainty the exact months yet.

  • You also wrote a story on one for the side characters from Secret’s world, Shane (Low Down Dirty Shane). Do you plan to write anymore about Shane or any other side characters?

Shane’s novella is intended to be the first in a 3 novella series (Misfits & Mayhem). As of right now the other two novellas are going to be about Nolan and Tyler (two of my favorite men in Secret’s world).
    August 2013

  • You’ve step out of the paranormal world with your new Boys of Summer series. What made you want to write Pitch Perfect?

I love, love, love baseball. I think if you opened up the dictionary to “Baseball Fan” there would probably be a picture of me in there. I’ve been wanting to try my hand at a contemporary romance for awhile since I love them, but I wanted to wait until I had the right story. I decided it didn’t get much more perfect than combining my two passions. I’m getting really good early response to Pitch Perfect so I’m hoping people like that new side of me just as much as they like Secret.

Grave Secret 
Secret McQueen Book 5 
March 2013

Sometimes a secret goes to the grave. Sometimes Secret puts you there.

It’s been a hell of a year for Secret McQueen, and the last thing in the world she wants is to get caught up in werewolf drama. But when her former fiancé Lucas Rain shows up asking for her help, she knows there’s no easy way out.

After making it known she wants nothing to do with him, Secret agrees to help find Lucas’s wayward sister Kellen. After all, how much trouble could one socialite get into in the city that never sleeps?

Unless that socialite has been spirited away by fairies.

Trying to track down a missing girl in an alternate reality is just the start of Secret’s problems, though. Someone appears to be killing teenagers, and the MO looks eerily similar to something for which the half-fairy oracle, Calliope, might be responsible. Throw in a rogue wolf pack claiming allegiance to Secret’s mother, Mercy, and she’ll have miles to go before she rests.

Warning: This book contains a promise fulfilled, sex that’s out of this world, and more heartache than one hybrid assassin can handle.

Sierra Dean
Sierra Dean is a reformed historian. She was born and raised in the Canadian prairies and is allowed annual exit visas in order to continue her quest of steadily conquering the world one city at a time. Making the best of the cold Canadian winters, Sierra indulges in her less global interests: drinking too much tea and writing urban fantasy.

Ever since she was a young girl she has loved the idea of the supernatural coexisting with the mundane. As an adult, however, the idea evolved from the notion of fairies in flower beds, to imagining that the rugged-looking guy at the garage might secretly be a werewolf. She has used her overactive imagination to create her own version of the world, where vampire, werewolves, fairies, gods and monsters all walk among us, and she’ll continue to travel as much as possible until she finds it for real.

She’s also a book lover (of course!), obsessive collector of OPI nailpolish and the owner of way too many pairs of shoes.
