Twenty-one-year-old Kaelyn has spent half her life hunting ghosts and killing them. But she’s not like the other ghost hunters who have to rely on spells and curses to banish ghosts back to where they came from, hoping that they don’t come back. When Kaelyn kills a ghost, they stay dead.

But in Mortimer Hall, a behemoth of a house, Kaelyn is about to face the most powerful and life-threatening ghost she ever met, and what she doesn’t know is that the ghost has been waiting just for her…

Guardian of Monsters: Aswangs

As all of you know my Guardian of Monster series hit the shelves early next year. I’m starting off with the Witches. The Benders, which is about a certain witch race and their guardians. The witches have different race of witches and I am still pondering whether I am going to write about them all or just about Alex and Ethan. Decisions, decisions…

Then the second part of the Guardian of Monsters Series, is actually a series I started with when I decided to become an author. But because of the market being so overwhelmed with Vampires and Werewolves, the series took a back seat, and found a wonderful spot in The Guardian of Monsters Saga.
The Aswangs, which is half werewolf, half Vampire, get a five book series that will form the Vampires and Werewolf side of The Guardian of Monsters Saga. They even have two Novella’s that adds to the series. I am at the moment busy rewriting and reworking the Aswang series so that it fits perfectly in with my other monsters.

The Jinn’s get a three book series and this is actually just called the Guardian of Monsters. As it was the original story of this series. Where we follow the Prince of all the Jinns and his guardian, Calista, which can turn into a crow.

All I need now is a story about the shifters. So lets hold thumbs that one will come soon.

Infallible by Carlyle Labuschagne tour

                                   FIRE QUILL PUBLISHING PRESENTS        

An edgy romantic suspense novel written by award wining YA author Carlyle Labuschagne as Bailey Quinn 


THE MOMENT DETECTIVE SCARLET ANNE MARTINS stepped into that prison, her resolve began to wane, a struggle she had long forgotten between heart and head. Unable to deny it any longer, the feelings she had for Alaric were strong—and her desperation to save him, would ultimately be what would killed them both.
For a super cop, her judgment in men truly failed her. But while her life, and anyone’s who tried to stop her was in mortal danger, she had to forget every single detail about Special Agent Blade. Her primary focus was getting through the next twenty-four hours without killing anyone.
Thereafter, her purpose would be to find a way to put behind bars those who were framing her for murder, and the bombing in New York City. It would prove to be an almost impossible task, since she had become a fugitive in a foreign country.
This time, her drop-dead gorgeous looks and South African accent would work against her in every way—she would be recognized in a heartbeat on the streets. With nowhere to run, she made the decision to face the peril head on and ensnare the evil that was coming for her, and the only way to do that was by giving them what they wanted.

Moonbeam is finally here.


I can’t believe that Moonbeam is finally here. Oh my word. It was on pre-order for almost three months and although plenty has told me not to put Moonbeam on Pre-order, I just had to know how many readers are truly excited for this one.

I was shocked by  the number of pre-order I got and it was only from one online site, Amazon. I didn’t even know what I was looking at with all the other online sites as most of them only reveal it on the day it’s released,  meaning today. I get that it hurts rankings on these sites and yes, I probably won’t get my yellow banner as I got with all the other novels, but, and here is a big but, to me I really don’t care much for the ranking system. Sorry to say it, yes, it’s nice to see the yellow banner, and being first in a category is a lot. But I do it just to see the pleasure on my readers faces, knowing that there is a set date and they don’t have to wonder when it is going to be published.

Oh for those of you who didn’t know, I do write under my pen name Adrienne Woods, and The Dragonian Series has made me an international best selling author, I should put that on my covers, don’t you think.

So yes, super excited to finally shout that Moonbeam is here. I really loved writing this one, and I can’t tell you enough that I hope you will love it too.

If you waited until now to hit that get me the damn book button, here is your chance. Go get your copy now.

Can you hear the song in my voice. It is that time….my cover is here for Hinder.

Oh my word. Joemel Requeza,  the artist, has done one heck of a super job creating this. Ariel is in this cover, and so is my lovely Fibbs, the wisp. What is a wisp, well you need to get your hands on Hinder, if you like to find out.

So here it is, and hope you are going to love this book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.



Titel: Hinder: A Benders Novel
Series: Guardian of Monsters
Genre: Paranormal
Author: Kristin Ping
Publication Date: 2017
Publisher: Fire Quill Publishing


Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-old—at least that’s what he’s trying to portray. In a secret society run by the Supernaturals, Ethan is what witches call a Bender. Benders are Witches’ Guardians, who are able to control a witches’ ability, bend it, or move it away from harming humans. In Ethan’s case, he is able to bend the Earth element. But at the age of fifteen, he lost all connection to it, and the reasons behind it could only mean one of two things: His Wielder is either dead, or hiding out somewhere.

Alex Burgendorf has been living in her aunt’s locket for the past sixteen years with her mother—a Fire Wielder, and her father—a Water Wielder. For sixteen years, her parents vowed to protect her, and they have, as she is the last Earth wielding witch. However, time is running out. Alex must find her Bender, or the fate of the Supernaturals might be at stake.

Don’t miss out on this action-packed debut novel by Kristin Ping, coming in 2017.
