Author Luna Joya has had a busy time this February, with two scheduled signings in as many weeks, leaving those of us not in California left out in the cold. *sniffles*
However, those in California and others with the ability to road trip there, got to see the red-headed author as she signed copies of her Legacy Series.
Check out some highlights below!
Open Book Canyon Country Book Store Signing
Her first signing took place at The Open Book Canyon Country book store in Santa Clarita, California, on February 12, 2022, where she accompanied authors Lizzy Gayle and Lesley O'Sullivan as they lured in unsuspecting readers with candy and pretty covers, and then boom--book sales!
The primary focus of the event was actually Leslie O'Sullivan's debut novel, Pink Guitars and Falling Stars (978-1648981586, Mystic Owl, $14,99, p. 298), during the signing, the authors held raffles and did readings from their books.
Many thanks to the Open Book Store for sharing their space and audience.
The Love and Devotion Event Signing
On February 19, 2022, Joya packed up her bags and headed for the Love and Devotion Event at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina.
The event included not only lovely views of boats docked in the bay, but a luncheon for readers with VIP passes, where they got to sit and chat with 49 of their favorite authors, models ripped straight from the covers of their favorite romance novels, and the voices of our beloved audiobooks. Added to the lure were swag bags. Darn our inability to road trip in time!
Many thanks to the Love and Devotion Author Events for holding such a wonderful event!
As if there wasn't enough going on this month, it's now official! Mystic Owl announced that they've snagged the contract for Joya's upcoming novel, How to Date a Fury.
And Rumor has it:
Last, but not least, rumor has it How to Date a Fury is not the only book to be announced this year, but shhh. Watch this space.

I have to be perfect.
Perfect agent. Perfect Commanding Officer. Follow every rule to the letter, since HQ already expects my new ragtag team to crash and burn.
With the cryptid situation pushing my bare-bones team to its limits, I don’t need a stray civilian whose goal seems to be getting himself killed on my watch. Marshall throws himself between people and danger like his life doesn’t matter.
Except, for some reason, he matters to me.
Even if the giant redhead’s touch reminds me I’m more than my Command position, how can I risk his life and my team’s chance at success just for the sake of my happiness?
All I ever do is screw up.
With jobs. With people. Especially with people.
Definitely with the crazy-beautiful superhero-soldier who takes down my vampire boss—who, no, I didn’t know was a vampire.
Ending up in her custody, at a secret base full of other perfect super-soldiers? Custom-made opportunity for me to mess something up. But Liv sees through my weirdness to the real me.
Now, I’ve gotta show her rules are made to be broken and that while she’s protecting everyone else, I’ll be protecting her.
This time, screwing up isn't an option.
Trained from birth to defend humanity, the members of Company Alpha Cryptid Containment are the best of the best at what they do--protecting Region Two from that which goes bump in the night.
But protecting their hearts? That's a whole different story.

About the Book:
Time is being manipulated. The strands that hold the multiverse together are being cut and resewn into something new, something wrong. Nat and Zoe Amadour refuse to stand helplessly while the world is rebuilt in their parents’ vision - perfect Evolved, perfect children, and unlimited power while television broadcasts 24/7 news coverage of horrors committed by the rampaging “villians,” Hellfire and Crush.
The twins know they’re anything but the monsters portrayed, even as the two Evolved "villains", tear apart the world in search of revenge. If the world is to survive, the Amadour twins will have to step into the arena of time and space, and face off with their parents to undo the wrong they’ve created. But to do that, they’ll need a very dead AEC agent.
Can they mend the multiverse? Or will their deaths be sewn into the new tapestry of life that their parents created?

About the Author:
From a young age, there have been voices inside of Michelle’s head. No, not those kinds of voices – or, maybe they are; who really knows? Rather than fear those voices, Michelle wrangled them like wild mustangs on the prairie, make each one bend to her will in its own time. Well, what does that mean?
It means that Michelle has been writing stories of the fantastic, the horrific, and the mysterious for as long as her little fingers have been able to hold a pen and probably longer, but memory only goes back so far. In a world that passes for ‘normal’, she is all of the ‘normal’ things one might expect: mother, wife, keeper of fur-babies. She is also a student of life, meaning if there is something to learn, she will learn it, thus making her a veritable font of only partially useful knowledge.
The whimsy and ChAoS that actually controls the rest of Michelle’s existence has earned her a place in two different arenas so far: Bards and Sages Quarterly and Corrugated Sky Publishing. While wielding the unwieldiness of words is her primary function, she is also an avid crafter, collector of “creepy” ball-jointed dolls, and can run through a Target in under an hour with only two extra items from her intended list. Talent!

DEAD OF WINTER
In a deceptively peaceful county, a murderer hides in plain sight.
Fifty-eight minutes into her first day on the job, 23-year-old Sheriff Piper Blackwell is faced with a grisly murder, the victim artfully posed amid decorations on his lawn. Drawing on former military training, Piper must prove herself worthy of the sheriff's badge, and that won't be easy.

DEAD OF NIGHT
As Sheriff Piper Blackwell rushes to a clandestine meeting with an aging, paranoid veteran who believes spies are trailing his every move, she is caught in a fierce thunderstorm. Pounding rain drums against the bluff, washing away the earth and revealing a grisly secret someone tried to bury a long time ago.
Putting a name to the skeleton on the bluff, and searching for the thief who robbed the old veteran of his life’s earnings, sends Piper delving into the sleepy towns that dot her rural county. Now she’s digging into pasts perhaps best left alone.
Accompanied by Chief Deputy Oren Rosenberg, Piper seeks to expose a truth someone wants to remain forever hidden. The investigation may have started with a thunderstorm, but Piper aims to finish it and find justice. Uncovering fragments of Spencer County’s history could prove more dangerous - and deadlier - than she ever expected.
Length: 8 hr 32 min

But managing two investigations with at least one killer on the loose pushes the young officer and her tiny staff to their limits. Can Piper catch the murderer, or will the summer’s body count continue to rise?
