Please Welcome Author...Moira Rogers!!

Hello, and thanks to the Deadly Vixens for having me today! My name is Bree, and I’m one half of the romance-writing, virtual-crime-fighting duo known as Moira Rogers. Together with my best friend Donna, I have the delightful honor of writing books about things that go bump (and sometimes grind) in the night.

And today is the most exciting day I’ve had since I started my writing career, because it’s the day the first book we ever wrote goes on sale at Samhain Publishing. Crux is the book that started it all for us, the story that captured our minds so much we decided we just had to write it. Somewhere in the middle of writing it we decided to take a break and try our hands at short stories to see what we could learn, but in the end it always came back to Crux. Because man, we loved this book.

Luckily for us, so did our editor! It’s a complex book with a twisty plot, good guys who might be bad guys, bad guys who might be good guys and a romance that is the tiniest bit forbidden. It also has a cast of characters who we love dearly, each one with their own strengths and weaknesses they bring to the table. The Southern Arcana universe is our second home, and we’ve been vacationing there for so long that it’s hard to believe we finally get to share it with the world!

At its heart, Crux is the story of a woman who has never quite fit in anywhere. Mackenzie Brooks has always felt a little out of touch with the world around her, even though the parents who adopted her when she was five have done everything in their power to make her feel loved. It isn’t until a stalker-gone-bad chases her to New Orleans that she discovers a place that feels right. Something about the people who hang around Mahalia’s Bar & Grill resonate with her, but the truth is something she isn’t ready to face: there’s a world beyond the one she knows, and she belongs to it.

We’re so excited about this book that we’ve teamed up with Bitten by Books to give one lucky winner an 8GB iPod Touch in honor of its release, in hopes that someone might get a chance to read Crux on that iPod. For details on where to buy your own copy of Crux, check out our website:

Crux (Southern Arcana #1) On Sale Now at Samhain Publishing

Jackson Holt makes a decent living as a private investigator in New Orleans, home of one of the largest underground supernatural populations in the United States. He and his partners have never met a case they couldn't crack...until a local bar owner asks him to do a little digging on her newest hire.

New Orleans is the fourth destination in as many months for Mackenzie Brooks, a woman on the run from a deranged stalker. After all, any man who shows up on her doorstep claiming to be her destined lover has more than a few screws loose. But crazy doesn't explain why he always finds her no matter how far she runs.

When her well-meaning boss puts a PI on her case, Mackenzie comes face to face with the incredible truth: magic is real, and whatever spell has kept her hidden and separate from the paranormal world is rapidly deteriorating.

With time running out, she has no choice but to trust Jackson as he struggles to uncover the truth of her past-and her destiny.
