Pre-Orders Open For “Athena’s Promise”!

I don’t think I have ever been so excited and nervous about something in my entire life. Can you see me bouncing up and down in my seat??


And click here to see the trailer…

Athena’s Promise Trailer


SQUEE! Here’s the back cover copy:

As the front desk manager of a hotel on the edge of Zombietown, Pallas is used to dealing with angry centaurs, surly trolls, and zombie housekeepers. The trouble really starts when one of her guests ends up dead. But that’s not her only problem.

A cop with an attitude – can he be trusted to be more than just a pain in her ass or does he have a more sinister agenda?

A new Guest Services Manager, out for her job and ready to sacrifice anyone in his way – what does he really want?

The attractive maintenance guy, endangering the promise she made out of necessity to the Goddess Athena – does he know more than he’s telling?

A mermaid diva, whose show at the Sparkling Butterfly must go on – or else.

Pallas needs to find the killer, and fast, or she’ll lose her job, her home, and the ragtag family she’s adopted out of her crew of “critters”.

In the course of the investigation Pallas uncovers connections to a nasty Oddities dealer deep in the heart of Zombietown, forcing her to expose a trauma from her past which could threaten her future. With everyone and everything she loves in danger, the promise made to the Goddess Athena may well damn her if she breaks it, but she is bound and determined to save her friends, her home, and everything she’s built.

No matter what it takes.



“Ribken’s Pallas grabs you from word one with her no-nonsense attitude and solid sense of sarcasm and keeps you hooked all the way through. Witty, tragic, inventive and an altogether fantastic read that will have you asking what I did–where’s the next one?” ~Patti Larsen, author of The Hunted series and Family Magic

“If this book were any more fun, you’d need to bring a condom. I loved every second of this snarky, mysterious, hilarious goodness. A fabulous debut!” –Joseph Paul Haines, author of Marooned

“Pallas is brilliant, loyal, and determined to balance her precarious positions in two very different worlds. Both strong and vulnerable, this heroine truly shines.” ~Lori Whitwam, author of Make or Break
