Now, Claire’s been locked out of her realm, given an assistant that doesn’t actually assist, and told to handle a small problem in Underworld that might just get her killed.

And to top it all off, Mab’s made one of the contenders her untouchable. So, yeah, you could say Claire’s having one of those days.

Follow more of Claire’s adventures in Dark Forsaken, book 3 of the Devil’s Assistant Series, to find out if Claire can defeat the latest contender, survive the quads, and replace the curator before Harry figures out she’s stolen his blood.

Number of pages: 290
Word Count: 90,000

Cover Artist: Robin Ludwig Designs

Book Description:

Last spring Claire’s seemingly normal—if not totally screwed up—life was tossed on its head. For five years she’d been one of the damned—a human that knows the truth about the otherworldly among us. She’d worked for The Boss—the Demon King himself—as his administrative assistant, handling everything from early retirements, to Maintenance’s incessant requests for dental.

No one gets dental.

Then she walked into Purgatory—totally not her fault—went back in time, and awakened powers she never knew existed. Now Claire has a prophecy hanging over her head, a diamond ring hidden in her sock drawer, and the blood of a long dead royal running through her veins.

And it’s only going to get worse.

Her vow to live free or die takes a serious hit when she’s forced back under The Boss’s protection. Of course, there’s no protection from fate, or the Bounty Hunter sent to deliver her to Purgatory. And as if being “the girl” in the prophecy wasn’t enough, Claire soon discovers there are three other contenders for her role—two of whom want her dead.

Follow more of Claire’s adventures in Dark Awakened, the second installment of the Devil’s Assistant Series, to find out if she’s lucky enough to escape with her life, or if she’s just the first notch on the next contender’s belt.

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Publisher: Wild Fey, LLC

Date of Publication: 03/04/2014

ISBN: 9781942030010
ASIN: B00M3J601E

Number of pages: 290
Word Count: 95,000

Cover Artist: Robin Ludwig Designs

Book Description:

Claire, the Devil’s assistant, knows very little about the world she was dropped into five years ago, when she inherited her mother’s unpaid debt to the Demon King. She certainly didn’t expect to be a contender for the Fallen Queen’s throne, a target for the Druid King’s mafia, or a suspect in the murder of Junior, the Devil’s oldest hell spawn.

In a last ditch effort to save her life and get out of her deal with the Devil, she sets out to solve Junior’s murder only to be taken prisoner by the four most dangerous immortal hell spawn alive.

Not to be out done, the Pagan Queen Mab, claims Claire for entering her realm uninvited. She has an old debt to settle with her brother the Devil. Taking Claire from him after losing her years ago is just icing on the cake.

Will Claire win her freedom, and save herself from the Devil? Or be trapped by Mab forever?

About the Author:

HD Smith has been writing for over ten years. She is a software developer by day, working for an awesome cruise line in Celebration, FL.

HD grew up in South Carolina, but has called the Sunshine State home since 1997. She has Computer Science degrees from Clemson University (BS) and Florida Institute of Technology (MS). Her other hobbies include painting and screen printing. She enjoys creating t-shirts inspired by the places in her books.


Where are you from? Central, SC (small town next to the equally small town of Clemson, SC—go tigers!)
Tell us your latest news? Dark Forsaken, book 3 in the Devil’s Assistant series just released December 25th! I’m currently working on book 4, the final book in Claire’s story arc.
When and why did you begin writing? After finishing my master’s degree in 1999, I started writing as a hobby. After planning two books to death, I completed my first book (Keegan’s Point, a 40,000 word novella) in 2002, but didn’t publish it until 2011 when I discovered Smashwords.
When did you first consider yourself a writer? When I let my friend Stacie read the very first (very rough) completed version of Keegan’s Point … it was pretty atrocious, but everyone has to start somewhere :)
What inspired you to write your first book? All the characters trying to beat their way out of my head ;)
Do you have a specific writing style? Pantser all the way (sometimes called discovery writer) … I don’t outline, outlining is the kiss of death for a story in my opinion. I make a game plan and just start writing.
How did you come up with the title? After finishing a book, I brainstorm a bunch of options to find a unique (or mostly unique) combination. It can be hard to do, especially if you have decided to start all of them with Dark ... which is the most overused beginning of a title ever!
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? Not really. I’ve read books where it’s clear the author has a passion for something (like organic foods for example), but I find most of that kind of thing usually just drags down the story or is oddly placed just to get it out there. I’m not trying to make a political statement or right the wrongs by bringing to light an issue (not that there is anything wrong with that, if that’s what you like to read/write go for it), but I’m writing about a kick-ass heroine who’s had fate screwing with her since day one—not a social commentary on violence in the workplace.
How much of the book is realistic? Not one damn bit ;) … however, I’ve been told it is easy to slip into my world of crazy and suspend disbelief.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? No—not really based on anything real.
What books have most influenced your life most? When I was younger, Choose Your Own Adventure series, now I read more Urban Fantasy and paranormal romance.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? I read a lot of Urban Fantasy and have many favorites, it would be impossible to choose just one.
What book are you reading now? I just finished City of Light by Keri Arthur
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? I recently discovered Jocelynn Drake. I like her Asylum series.
What are your current projects? Book 4 (untitled) of the Devil’s Assistant series.
What would you like my readers to know? Books 1-3 of the series are on sale this week! Try Dark Hope (book 1) for FREE (Feb 5-9). Dark Awakened (book 2) and Dark Forsaken (book 3) are both on sale for $0.99 each. And you can add audio narration to books 1 & 2 for $1.99 each (I love audio!). Book 3 audio will be out by end of April or beginning of May.
