Artistic Fears by DeAnna Browne

As my book baby, Demon Rising, is soon to be released into this world by Black Opal Books, no one told me the gut wrenching nerves that would accompany a book release. It’s one thing to write, draw, or even sing in the confines of your own home. I can belt it out like Beyonce in the shower. You can revel in your art, whatever form that is, and truly enough it. Somehow when you open those doors and allow the public to see your work it becomes a whole new ballgame. One I don’t think I’ll ever feel ready for.  
How did I take that step? I took a whole lot of baby steps.
  1. Support Group – I needed more than family members telling me I’m amazing, cause they’re obligated by blood. I found critique groups and other professional writers to help me navigate the path to publishing and encourage me when I need it.
  2. Ignore the negative voices - The voices never leave all together, but I find when I replace them with positive words they shut up for a little while.
  3. Jump – Sometimes you can climb that hill inch by inch, but you eventually have to take that plunge.
Despite the editors, beta readers, and more, it still is scary publishing a book and putting yourself out there. Maybe that is part of the thrill of writing, not only creating a world for yourself, but having the chance to share it with others. So I’m pushing back the fear, and trying to embrace this new step in my life.

Demon Rising
by DeAnna Browne
Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy

Some sacrifices cost more than death…

Thirty years ago, dark magicians unleashed new power on the earth fueled by demons. Governments toppled, millions died and magicians ended up on top of the food chain.
Twenty-four-year-old Becca survives these dangerous times by relying on her wits, her fists, and the limited goodwill of her boss, a local crime lord. When news comes of a fire back home and the family she left behind dead, she realizes her dark past has finally caught up to her.
On the hunt for her missing sister, she must rely on Darion, a treacherous ex-boyfriend with ties to the local coven for back-up. Problem is he’s a pyromancer that can’t be trusted, especially with her heart. Will she escape the sticky web of treachery and deceit with her sister and her heart, or will she sacrifice it all to save another?
Becca’s forced to navigate a dangerous web of deceit and must decide what she’s willing to sacrifice to save her sister.

An enthralling new voice gives us a magical world where love leads to dark decisions.” ~ Jami Gray, award winning author

“…extremely well written, filled with wonderful characters, strange happenings, and face paced action. I, for one, found it very hard to put down. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.”
~Taylor Jones, reviewer

DeAnna Browne graduated from Arizona State University with her BS in Psychology. She finds it helps to corral those voices in her mind and put them to paper. Her debut novel, A DEMON RISING, came out in August 2017 with Black Opal Books and book two in the series, UNHOLY SUNDERING, is due out 2018. An avid reader and writer, she has a soft spot for fantasy with a touch of romance. Despite her love for food and traveling, she always finds her way back to Phoenix, Arizona with her husband, children, and pet dog.

  1. I'm always very interested in the Saving a Sibling plots, and it's even better when you add an intriguing world (be it fantasy or political) where the character doesn't know whom to trust!
