Jain Lazarus Adventures Build Readership Crossing Genre Lines
Series aspects appeal to fans in many genres
By: Luna Jensen
Hex Breaker Jain Lazarus joins the crew of a cursed film, hoping to put to rest what was stirred up before more people die and the film is lost. Tough, practical Detective Wyatt East becomes her unlikely ally and lover on an adventure fighting zombies, ceremonial magicians, the town wife-beater, the messenger of the gods, and their own pasts.
It’s been called “a fun read that is filled with action” (Bitten by Books), with “the chemistry between the two (Jain and Wyatt) is well-developed and solid” (Long and Short Reviews), and “the character of Jain is fascinating”
Author Ellington draws on her twenty-plus years working backstage on Broadway and in film and television for Jain’s “normal” occupation, which is working in the wardrobe department. “Several of the scenes formulated after spectacularly grueling long days on set,” she admits. “We may not be actual zombies by the ends of those days, but sometimes it feels that way!” The banter, exhaustion, and creative process behind-the-scenes are tightly woven into the paranormal elements of the story.
The digital version of HEX BREAKER is available for only $4US at the Fire Drakes Weyr website, www.firedrakesweyr.com, with the direct purchase link http://www.firedrakesweyr.com/
The second book in the series, OLD-FASHIONED DETECTIVE WORK, told through Wyatt’s eyes, is scheduled for a Spring 2009 release. For excerpts, information on the books and short story tie-ins, visit the Jain Lazarus site: http://hexbreaker.devonellingtonwork.com.
