International Release: Book Trailer for The Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse!

 So, I did a thing. A few months back I had a random thought and I ran with it. And the random thought was, why don’t you make a live-action book trailer for Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse and play Death riding her pale horse? I mean, it seemed natural. Max is the perfect pale horse. Why not dress up as one of my characters and create a short film? Not wild/crazy/daunting/audacious at all.

It's been an interesting journey creating this thing. Writing a book is one thing, but starring in a short film? Completely different. I don't really think I thought it through when I first had the idea early this year, and I'm glad I didn't, because I totally would have chickened out. It's really putting myself out there, you know? Like ME, on a screen. It's a very different sort of creative expression than writing. But it was a total blast, and I loved it, and Max actually loved it, and I think we have many more costumed performances in our future. I really LOVE LOVE LOVE how it came out. Hopefully you enjoy it just a fraction as much as I do.

A HUGE shout out to: my friend and amazing filmmaker Ash Mancuso who directed the film, saw my vision, added so much depth and awesomeness to it, made me feel like a rock star while putting up with my camera shyness, and was just an awesome co-creator of this project. My trainer Marsha Hartford Sapp, without whom I would not have a horse who I can throw in western tack (usually we use a dressage saddle), ride with a big, billowy cloak, and shoot clouds of fog at from a machine (oh, and letting me use said western tack and fog machine!). Photographer Kim Chason for capturing our second video shoot with pics I will cherish forever. Sandy Beaulieu for lending me several gorgeous key pieces to my outfit as Death and offering great advice. And so many horse friends who lent me things and cheered me on through this process. It's been a group effort of powerful women coming together, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I would love it if you share this film far and wide! As much as I adore the book trailer, I also adore this series of books and want my characters and my story to find readers who also love it. Dynah/Death is the star of this film, but you’ll also meet Willow, Felicity, and Penelope. They kick ass.

But above all, enjoy the trailer - whether or not you’re into fantasy books about cowgirls and angels and demons!

Death and Dating Releases Today!

Death and Dating, The Quinn Chronicles Book 1, releases today! It's a Zyan Star spin-off series for all you Zyan fans out there. Snag a copy for FREE on Amazon through the 30th!

Life has been a little…interesting…since Quinn Devereux came back from the dead. Well, life being a relative term when you’re not sure if you’re exactly alive. Dating is hard enough without being non-corporeal. And there’s the small matter of her eternal servitude to Death.

But when someone casts a deadly spell on the high priestess of her former coven, Quinn is called in to find the killer. It’s been decades since she left the coven, and the terms of her departure aren’t exactly fond memories. She’s got to come to terms with her past while also learning to handle her new powers, and unfortunately there’s not a charm in her grimoire for that kind of thing.

As if that weren’t enough to cramp a witch’s style, her training to escort souls and become one of Death’s servants begins at precisely the same time Quinn is trying to catch the murderer. Add in a government group that hunts supernaturals and a reunion with the warlock who broke her heart, and you’ve got a whole cauldron of chaos on your hands.

Some witches have all the fun.

Of Blood, Earth, and Magic Release!!

Hi, friends!

It's finally here! My YA fantasy Of Blood, Earth, and Magic. A book about a girl, a horse, a boy, a land ravaged by magic and monsters, and a circus of rebels. A book from my soul. It's mage punk/tribal fantasy. It's dark and beautiful and whimsical. 

Read on for some fun quotes and pics. Or go ahead and snag it now for FREE if you have Kindle Unlimited, and only 99 cents for everyone else through the end of the week!!

There was a time when the Tribes lived in harmony. Sun, Moon, even the fabled Shadow Tribe. That time is no longer. Now the land has become a wicked wasteland, plagued by strange creatures, enchanted storms, and bubbles of trapped time, remnants of the Shaman Wars. Magic has been outlawed by the Sun, the Moon have gone into seclusion, and the Shadow are all but annihilated, with threat of death hanging over any who step foot within the realm.

This is Iamar.

For Elea, the idea of peace between the tribes is a nothing more than a legend from the history books. She works for a circus of outcasts who travel between the Sun cities. All she wants is freedom: from the circus, to perform her magic, to be herself. But she possesses a deadly secret that makes any chance of liberty impossible. Ashe is a spoiled Sun boy, heir to one of the seven Sun cities. He rebels against his overprotective father by competing in illegal fight dens. Like most Sun, he believes that science is the future, and he’s never traveled outside the walls of his city due to the dangers that lie beyond.

When a new kind of evil begins to terrorize the land, Elea and Ashe find themselves thrown into the center of a coup that could destroy Iamar. To fight the enemy, the Sun and Moon must unite, something that hasn’t been done in three hundred years. But first they must find the Moon Tribe, and that means crossing Iamar, which grows more and more unstable as the dark magic spreads. Dark magic which has everything to do with Elea and her terrible secret.

Book Reviews

"This is definitely a wonderful fantasy story that had me lost in the pages. I was totally intrigued. Don’t miss out once it’s released." Goodreads Reviewer

"Another thing that I really loved about this novel is the way it made every action scene move: with urgency for the life-and-death battles, and a tenderness that just makes you sigh for the quieter interactions between its characters, humans and horses alike. I also really loved how magic is described as part of the earth, having scent like the earth, moving and springing from the earth. It is as much a part of the story as its characters, playing both a destructive and a healing role." Reedsy Discovery

Welcome to the world, book baby! I hope you enjoy Of Blood, Earth, and Magic as much as I do.

Happy book birthday to me! 

This series has been a journey, guys. It wasn't always easy and took way longer than I planned, but I'm very pleased with how Evr's story wrapped up. It's the first series I've actually finished, since my Zyan Star series is ongoing. It's hard to say goodbye, but also exciting to move on to new adventures.

Welcome to the world, Huntress at War.

Zyan Star Book Tour!

Hi, guys! Zyan is hittin' the road for a month-long tour! I'm super stoked about it. Check out the deets below, including the full tour schedule on the Silver Dagger Book Tour site, and a gift card giveaway! There will be book reviews, guest posts by yours truly, and other fun stuff. Hope you have as much fun as I will :)

Martinis with the Devil
Zyan Star Series Book 1
by A. A. Chamberlynn
Genre: Urban Fantasy

When offered a job on the Holy Representative’s special security team, bounty hunter Zyan Star couldn’t be less interested – until she finds out it’s her most hated of exes that they’re trying to track down. He broke her heart and dumped her, which in turn led to the loss of her soul at the hands of an immortal soul thief. Now she too exists on a diet of souls, with the occasional martini thrown in for good measure, and she’s had over two hundred years to fantasize about revenge. She just didn’t quite imagine it playing out alongside the emissaries of Heaven.

Working with Eli, the uptight angel that heads up the HR’s security, is just about as much fun as Zy expects. He of course wants her vampire ex brought to justice through legal avenues, which is very inconvenient and incredibly boring. As she dives into the case, however, she realizes there’s more at stake than her plot for payback. Like, the free will of mankind, and preventing the minions of hell from taking over the sovereign dimensions. 

This job is going to push her to the limits of her abilities, and there’s just a slight problem with that: the powers she’s suppressed for centuries after losing control of them are exactly the powers she’s going to need to save the HR, end her millennia-old ex and stop Lucifer’s little plot to join the party and invade Earth. 

Savior of humanity? Not so much. Or so she thought.

**Only .99 cents!!**

Whiskey and Angelfire
Zyan Star Series Book 2

Can Zyan avert the war that’s brewing before her past catches up to her, quite literally?

When one of the angelic warriors goes missing, Zyan and Eli head off to Dublin to join the search. As soon as they arrive, they're swept into rising tensions between the angelic forces and the other supernatural races. As more supernaturals go missing, Archangel Michael will stop at nothing to put the perpetrator behind bars, even if it means placing the city under martial law.

To add to the mess, Zyan's sister Anna is in Dublin, and where Anna is, Lucifer is only a step behind. Not to mention Alexander, Zyan's sworn enemy. Zyan has more than a sneaking suspicion they’re at the heart of a spree of recent demon invasions. But something is odd about these demons, and if she doesn’t figure it out before Lucifer reveals his ultimate plan, the price could be catastrophic.

As if things couldn’t get worse, being back in Ireland where she was turned immortal has dredged up the worst from her past. Including her maker, Olga, who’s none too pleased that Zyan’s come back. 

Vengeance and Vermouth
Zyan Star Series Book 3

Book three in the Amazon bestselling Zyan Star urban fantasy series!

To bring her best friend back from the dead, Zyan will march into Hell itself. But first she needs to amass a force that can challenge Lucifer on his home turf. 

With Archangel Michael and the forces of Heaven on her heels, Zyan criss-crosses the globe, gathering a supernatural team of epic proportions. She’s calling in all her favors this time, summoning figures from her past both dangerous and deadly.

And to get into Hell she must work with the worst of them all, the one who murdered her friend in the first place. Zy will have to put aside her burning need for revenge to pull off the biggest mission of her life, but that may prove to be the one thing she can’t do.

Alexia is the author of the Amazon bestselling Zyan Star urban fantasy series and The Timekeeper's War contemporary fantasy series. She lives in Florida with her son, two cats, and a bearded dragon. When she's not writing or reading, she can be found playing with horses, drinking wine, traveling to the next place on her global wish list, or maybe doing yoga. Dr. Who, unicorns, and katanas make her very happy. She is represented by Sandy Lu of the L. Perkins Agency.
