DEMON KISSED is a young adult paranormal-romance novel, by American author H.M. Ward. It tells the story of Ivy Taylor, a seventeen year old girl, who is claimed by both the martyr marked (people chosen to protect humanity from evil), and the demon kissed (soulless servants of hell).
While learning to survive in this new reality, Ivy discovers that she is at the center of a prophecy that foretold of her unleashing unprecedented evil into the world. Ivy relies on her friends, and finds herself in a forbidden romance, while trying to save the world.

The new cover image is shown above. It has a few hints about the book, and readers will really like piecing it together after they’ve read Demon Kissed. Those kind of covers are fun, so we had one created for this novel. It’s really cool!!!
Another cool thing: This book is an Indie novel. That means lots of great stuff! My favorite of which is that it gives the reader a chance to support awesome authors. With Indie writers, “the man” isn’t screwing you over and making you pay $30 for a book. The result is that book prices can be less expensive, because the middlemen have been cut out. All proceeds from the book directly benefit your favorite author. So it saves you money AND you’re a flippin awesome patron of the arts! Normally, only rich people get to be patrons and support their favorite artist. That is something awesome about Indie – anyone can be a patron!
Being a patron and finding undiscovered artists is something that is very common in other areas of the arts. I personally love discovering a new artist before everyone else. Not only do you get a good price on awesome work, but you get the joy of being one of the first people to notice a new painter, writer, musician, etc. It’s a way for you to personally mold and influence the arts!
What else does it mean? It means that books can be reach the public faster. If I stayed the traditional route, it would have been approx thirteen more month before the release of this book. As a reader – that sucks! It’s way too long.
The last plus of Indie writers is that they can bust the mold. There is a like mindedness in publishing. You may have experienced it yourself after you’ve read a new book and it feels like five other books you’ve read. That’s so disappointing as a reader. Indie writers can write without constraints. They aren’t being forced to blend into the market for sellability. The writer’s individuality can shine through in their book. I think that’s awesome. It allows writers to be more creative and it allows readers to get their hands on something new.
Those are the main four reasons Indie appeals to me, which is why I chose to go that direction. I still have my awesome agent and she is very excited about it. DEMON KISSED also has the attention of Hollywood, which means you guys have the power to make this book into a movie! With over 32,000 facebook fans, I can totally see you guys shaping the movie!
Thank you to everyone who encouraged me to see this through. I love writing, but rarely shared my work before now. The emails and posts that you guys have made are incredible. The comments on chapter 1 alone blew me away. The fan art you sent is amazing and its an honor to know so many wonderful artists! You guys made all this possible! Thank you so much!
