Cursed – Black Swan

I am so excited to be involved in Ryan McFadden’s release day blitz! We’ve been friends forever (it seems) and I’m really happy to be able to help him celebrate the launch of his first novel, Cursed: Black Swan, the first in the Fixer Series.

This Fantasy/Dark Fantasy novel was published by Dragon Moon Press, and is available today!



“Let’s get one thing straight—I’m a fixer. You need someone murdered? Then hire an assassin. You need something stolen? Call a thief. But if there’s something no one else can do, or a job that no one else wants, then you talk to me.”

Nathaniel specializes in the strange, the weird, and the dangerous. But no matter how far he runs, he can’t leave behind his bloody past, nor the ghosts that chase him.

His latest job was supposed to be simple—recover the sword Black Swan. Except there’s no such thing as a simple job. When the operation goes bad, the Crucifiers, the Crooked Hand, assassins, and Crusaders are all hot on Nathaniel’s trail…for a sword he doesn’t even have. All he has to do to get it back and set his world right is to find the woman of his dreams…and kill her.

Sounds great, doesn’t it? Here is where you can buy it!
