Five years have passed since Myla Lewis last fought gladiator-style in Purgatory's Arena. Now, she’s fighting again, only this time in Hell. And the stakes have never been higher. The King of Hell, Armageddon, has kidnapped Myla and Lincoln’s young son, Maxon.

In the wake of Maxon’s abduction, all the after-realms calling for war, and no one shouts louder than Lincoln. Myla knows that a war against Hell will cost millions of lives, so she devises her own plan, involving a small attack team and a secret entrance to Hell. Will Myla save Maxon, or will her child and all the after-realms fall to Armageddon?

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Ink Monster just released Maxon on May 12th, and it’s book 4 in the Angelbound series. Maxon turned out to be a demon-fighter and general badass, but he didn’t start off that way. I read Tangled by Emma Chase and I really liked the guy’s voice in that book. So, originally, I wrote Maxon as a snarky and somewhat immature playboy. But that wasn’t working. Fifteen revisions later, Maxon turned into the tough-guy that he is now.  I love-slash-hate it when my characters do their own thing.

Maxon’s journey isn’t unusual, by the way. In general, I write five full chapters for every one that I keep. As a result, sometimes my business-self wants to take my writer-self out back and kick its ass. Wasn’t version four good enough? Please, girl!
