Gracie Boswell’s got a charmed bullet, a brand new posse, and a pack of outlaw vampires to kill.
The tiny town of Penance has a big vampire problem—and charmslinger Gracie Boswell aims to be the solution. A whole nest of vampires makes for a mighty fine bounty, though, and Gracie is far from the only charmslinger angling for the job.

But Gracie doesn’t have much time to watch her fellow bounty hunters—Penance’s vampire nest is bigger and more organized than anyone suspected, and there’s at least one traitor in the town’s midst. Soon, Gracie finds herself in the unenviable position of leaning on her posse…and at least one of them isn’t what he claims to be.
USA Today best-selling author Liza Street continues to thrill with a brand new western gothic series of outlaw vampires, sinister fae, and good old-fashioned treachery. Pick up Blood Bounty for a wild ride through the dark and dangerous west!

Harry Muldoon, hard-boiled detective, must travel back through time to save two colliding realities – before he loses his head.
Muldoon has a big problem: he’s dead. Twenty years ago, a monk with a kodachi cut off his head. Now Irena, his widow, is searching for him. So is Gavin Lennox, power-hungry owner of The Pearl, the hottest night spot in all of NewCity. Cyrus Horton, an eccentric inventor, has also joined in the search. They’re all looking for the BackTracker, a time travel device that has caused divergent realities to spiral out of control. In one of them, Muldoon is still alive.
He was a private investigator, the best at what he did. He solved his cases 100% of the time. Hindsight is, after all, 20/20. And the BackTracker allowed him to change the past. But in the process, his travels through time have unraveled the universe, stretching, tearing the fabric of space-time and sending his own mind into oblivion. He can no longer distinguish between true and false memories; he no longer knows who he was.
BackTracker is about a hero dealing with the consequences of his actions. It’s about second chances. And it’s about what makes us human despite technology’s power to shape society. But at its core, it’s a story about a man and woman who won’t allow anything to keep them apart – not space-time, not even death.

Rayn’s heartbeat may literally kill him.
When an ethereal energy sprite kidnaps Rayn, drags him through space, and dumps him in a nuclear wasteland, Rayn’s not exactly happy about leaving the warm, living city-organism he calls home. The wasteland’s crawling with armed brutes enforcing order for ‘the Prince’–and waifs who talk in riddles about an Invader they hope dethrones him. Quite frankly, Rayn thinks they’re all creeps.
Then there’s Nina: a bad-ass in black leather with a head for philosophy, and best of all, she’s politically neutral. Rayn’s infatuated. But when he discovers the Prince is using their heartbeats to fuel a war machine, Rayn chooses sides. Nina refuses to join him–but if he follows his heart for her, he may lose his heart altogether.
HEARTBEAT IN THE HALLWAYS blends metaphysical symbolism with strains of romance, dystopian, and “alien encounter” science fiction for a powerful novella that will challenge your perceptions of self, spirit, and other. Perfect for fans of classics like THE ARRIVAL and PERELANDRA, HEARTBEAT follows a selfish, successful resident of a symbiotic society that provides for his every need–until he’s thrust into an underworld of poverty and intrigue that changes everything he thought he knew.
