Acting on Impulse is free for five days only, so make sure to go download your copy before it returns to regular price.
Acting on Impulse is an old favorite of ours–the second story we wrote and the first one published, waaaaaaay back in 2003. We recently polished up the story, added a couple thousand words to it, and released it again, so even if you read it when it first released oh-so-long ago, we think it’s worth checking out again…especially when it’s free. We hope you enjoy it!
We have some good news to share. Driven to Distraction has been out of print now for the last few months, and it’s now available again with a gorgeous new cover at about half its original digital price.
Grab your copy of Driven to Distraction for only $2.99 at all major digital retailers!
And the second bit of AWESOME news. Acting on Impulse, the first story in the Hollywood Heat series, is available for free at most retailers. We’re still waiting on a few sites to get caught up (Amazon, B&N, we’re looking at you–update your darn pricing!) So if you haven’t read Acting on Impulse yet, or if you have a friend you want to introduce to Ashleigh Raine, you can do it now for FREE!
Edited on December 10 to add: Smashwords is now free!
Enjoy the Hollywood Heat!
Two years ago we started writing the first Necrolectric script. Today, episode 1 is now live. It’s been a long time coming. We hope you enjoy the show. We hope you love it like we do.

Did anyone notice the Talisman Bay Easter egg in the Necrolectric trailer? For those of you who don’t know, Necrolectric is a spin-off of the Talisman Bay series. Though there are no crossover characters in the first season, there are actually two references to Talisman Bay, one in episode 4 and the other in episode 6, (both of which will be airing in 2015), but you can see the episode 4 reference in the trailer. Did you catch it?
We’re thrilled to announce the online release date for the web series we wrote and produced, Necrolectric. Episode 1 will spark up on Tuesday, November 4, with episode 2 available one week later on November 11, and episode 3 on November 18, then we’ll return in early 2015 with the last three episodes of the season. The episodes will be available on our YouTube channel www.youtube.com/necrolectricseries. Make sure you follow the channel so you don’t miss an episode!
We hope you’ll go on this journey with us. We’re so excited to share these characters with you, and hope you’ll love them as much as we do. Watch for the novelization of the web series, coming in 2015.
Who’s going to be at San Diego Comic Con next week? Not only will the Necrolectric cast be signing on Friday, July 25, from 1-4 in Holzheimer’s booth #3745, but we’ll be signing copies of Lover’s Talisman, Forsaken Talisman and Driven to Distraction as well. We hope to see some of you there!
We’ve had a lot of fun being interviewed by some awesome people recently regarding our upcoming web series, Necrolectric. If you’re interested in knowing more about us, the web series and the book series that will go along with it, check out these interviews.

Even though we haven’t had a new book out in a couple years, we’re still writing and creating, just not in the same way (though we’re getting back to that…and I’ll explain more in a bit). We took a big step about 20 months ago and began creating a web series. In some ways, it actually wasn’t too much of a stretch for us. We’ve always loved paranormal. We’ve always loved Hollywood and have worked on and off in the entertainment industry since the ’90s. It’s been a lot of work, a lot of passion, cost a lot of money and caused a lot of sleepless nights, but we’re so proud of what we’ve put together, with the help, sweat and tears of our amazingly talented cast and crew.
Necrolectric will be releasing this summer. The first season is six episodes, approximately 20 minutes each. Basically over the last year we wrote and shot what amounts to a feature-length film. It’s been a life-changing experience. And we’re not ending here. While we’re in post-production on season one, getting the episodes edited and ready for release, we’re in pre-production on season two. Plus, Lisa and I are writing the novelization of the first season. We’ve written novels, but this is the first time we’re translating scripts we’ve written into novel form. That’s a whole new experience, and fun too. We hope to release the book, Electric Rush, around the same time as the web series releases.
A fun fact about Necrolectric: It’s a spin-off of our Talisman Bay book series. As we were writing book 3, Eternal Talisman, (and we’re so, so sorry about the continued delay with that book. We do plan on finishing it, we promise!), we introduced two characters, brothers, Alaric and Cas, and fell madly in love with them. Afraid they were going to steal the show in the Talisman Bay series, Lisa and I decided to write a spin-off series for them, which ended up becoming our web series. And Necrolectric was born.
New body. Same spark.
A woman struggling with her mysterious need to constantly die and come back to life begins to unravel the truth of who she really is when she teams up with a young woman who relives others’ deaths, a young man who talks to ghosts, a cursed immortal, and his electrically charged brother to solve a series of supernatural murders.

Thanks for helping us keep the spark alive.
Every year around this time, my aunt and uncle send a message out to the family asking for any kid clothing hand-me-downs. My aunt and uncle do a lot of volunteer work with their church, and I never asked what they’re using the clothing for. I’ve just used it as an excuse to venture into my son’s closet–GAH!–and get rid of anything I no longer recognize. If he hasn’t worn it in the last year, either it doesn’t fit or he doesn’t like it that much, so we don’t need to keep it anymore. This year I talked more with my aunt and learned the this clothing is going to abused kids in the foster system–boys and girls ages 7-12–who often have nothing but the clothing on their back when they’re removed from their homes. My heart broke thinking of all these kids, ones who’ve been shown abuse and neglect instead of the love they deserve, and I wanted to do more than clean my son’s closet and hand a few sets of clothes over.
The Internet makes our world a much smaller place, allowing me to reach out beyond the circle of people I know locally. I’m collecting clothes from anyone who wants to send me something. I want to make sure that we clothe as many kids as we can. I will happily make multiple trips to my aunt and uncle’s house an hour away to bring them boxes and boxes of clothes.
What we’re looking for: Clothing for boys and girls ages 7-12. Pants, shirts, jackets, swimsuits, shorts, sweaters. etc… Any hand-me-downs (without holes or stains please).
When we need it by: June 15
Where to send it: Ashleigh Raine 22504 6th Street, Newhall, CA 91321
If you live locally and want to drop it off, please email me first at firstname.lastname@example.org. The above is my husband’s work address, so we’d need to make other arrangements.
As a small token of my appreciation, I will email a digital copy of Acting on Impulse to anyone who donates, whether one item or boxes full. You can email me to let me know you’ve shipped something and what your preferred format is, or include that info in a note with the clothes.
Thanks to everyone who helps, either by sending something or sharing this information with others. I’m excited to see what we can do together.
