Demon Within Series Bonus Scene

I posted this bonus scene a few months ago in one of my newsletters and thought I’d post it to my blog as well. The scene is from a day in the life of Cadence while she was busy hunting with Cami during the time between Crushed and Haunted. Be warned, it contains spoilers for Crushed, so do not read if you haven’t read Tainted or Crushed.

Since the scene is six pages long, I’ve included it as a PDF. Enjoy!

Demon Within Series Cover Re-Vamp Announcement

Over the next few weeks, you’ll notice a change in the covers of the Demon Within series if you haven’t already seen them on Amazon. While the original covers will always have a place in my heart, and I’ll always love their colorful spines, I’m officially in love with the new covers and their portrayal of Cami Anders.

Why re-vamp the covers so soon after the release of Revived you ask (or didn’t ask)? Well, the simple answer is that the decision to change them has been with me since the release of Crushed, though I didn’t want to change the covers halfway through the series. The original covers were often misinterpreted by just looking at them, especially with an older man (who was portraying Malicevile—Cami’s demon), and people assumed he was the love interest, which is obviously not the case. Also, I believe the new covers better portray the YA Paranormal genre. Plus, now, “These covers are on fiiiiiiirrreeeeee!” (Imagine Alicia Keys singing).

Anyway, I hope you all love the new Demon Within series covers as much as I do! If you’re interested in purchasing a signed paperback with the original covers on them for a discounted price, please feel free to message me at Ginna @ GinnaMoran . com (there are no spaces) or shoot me a message here.

Have a great day!

XOXO,

Ginna

Music Inspiration for Haunted

Every book writing experience differs for me. Sometimes, I write in silence and edit with music. Other times, I write with music and edit in silence. And more often than not, I write and edit with music. The Demon Within series has had a lot of musical influences, but mostly for the characters. I’ve narrowed down my playlist for Haunted to my top 5 favorite songs if you’re interested in listening.

  1. Demons by Imagine Dragons

Demons was a huge inspiration for Cami’s character in Haunted. She has lived for months with this notion that she is somehow evil because of her birthright, and all she wants to do is protect those she cares for. Demons captures her struggle through the entire series.

Favorite lines:

They say it’s what you make
I say it’s up to fate
It’s woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I want to save their light
I can’t escape this now
Unless you show me how

  1. Anthem of the Angels by Breaking Benjamin

Anthem of the Angels perfectly captures Dylan’s feelings for Cami in Haunted. He wants nothing more than to see her pull through her inner struggles, and his devotion to her surpasses all reason.

Favorite lines:

Days go on forever,
But I have not left your side.
We can chase the dark together,
If you go then so will I.

There is nothing left of you,
I can see it in your eyes.
Sing the anthem of the angels,
And say the last goodbye.

  1. Haunted by Taylor Swift

Haunted is the namesake of the novel and captures Cami’s feelings on an emotional level. She feels like she’s drowning in everything wrong in her life, and all she wants is to fight and save those she can.

Favorite lines:

Stood there and watched you walk away
From everything we had
But I still mean every word I said to you
He will try to take away my pain
And he just might make me smile
But the whole time I’m wishing he was you instead

  1. Angels Fall by Breaking Benjamin

Angels Fall sums up Cami’s relationship with Evan in Haunted. Evan, like Dylan, plays a huge role in Cami’s life. Every relationship molds Cami into who she is, but with Evan, it reminds her of how unfair life can be.

Favorite lines:

Gray skies will chase the light away
No longer
I fought the fight now only dark remains
Forever
Divided I will stand
And I will let this end

When angels fall with broken wings
I can’t give up, I can’t give in
When all is lost and daylight ends
I’ll carry you and we will live forever, forever

The sun begins to rise
And wash away the sky
The turning of the tide
Don’t leave it all behind
And I will never say goodbye

  1. Ungodly Hour by The Fray

Ungodly Hour captures the anguish and hope Cami drowns in through Haunted. Just when she feels certain about her life, everything changes and forces her to realize that the only thing she can be certain in life is who she is.

Favorite lines:

And I am short on words knowing what’s occurred
And she begins to leave because of me

Her bag is now much heavier
I wish that I could carry her
But this is our ungodly hour
Ungodly hour
Ungodly hour

Letters to Cami Anders

Usually Cami would be excited to receive mail, but unfortunately, she only gets mail from the two people she would rather not. If you haven’t read Crushed, be warned. The letters do contain spoilers.

Happy reading!

Demonic Clean-up 101

One of the least favorite things for Cami to do is demonic clean-up. Here is an informative handout provided by the Hunter’s Alliance to help you survive your first clean-up. Though, Cami questions the relevance of said handout. Cadence helps explain.

Rules for Demon Hunting

Cami has come to embrace demon hunting like it’s her sole mission in life. Though her stay at the academy was shorter than expected, she did manage to save some handouts from her classes. She thought her edits were more informative. Enjoy!

Demon Within Character Text Message – Evan

For those of you who have read books one and two in the Demon Within series, you know that a shift is already happening in Cami’s world. Here are a few text messages I imagine to take place between Cami and Evan. I hope you enjoy them!


evan-textThis first text pays homage to Tainted and would’ve taken place in the weeks between Tainted and Crushed. Cami will never live down her naivety for facing the soul sucking demon.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

haunted-text-teaserevan-textThese are for all the #teamEvan lovers out there. I’m not going to say too much about them other than they take place during Haunted. Read at your own risk.

Demon Within Character Text Messages – Alana O’Neil

Alana doesn’t follow Cami on her hunts now that she’s reunited with David and knows that Cami can handle herself. So when Cami’s on the road, I imagine that she sends Alana a lot of interesting text messages. Here are a few.


alana-and-cami-textIt’s safe to say that no one likes to receive text messages including pictures of dead demons, even Alana, who isn’t afraid to get covered in demon guts.

Fun fact: New hunters love taking pictures of dead demons to show their skills. They also do it because demons are actually pretty rare for normal hunters. Cami is an exception.

 

 

 

 


alana-text

The last thing Cami likes is to get letters from Malicevile. But he just loves torturing with her through the postal service. It’s his way of showing her that he knows where she is. It’s a power play.

 

 


alana-text-more

Only the bravest hunters would dare take on a big city. Cami and Cadence aren’t though. She sends this picture to Alana as her way of showing that she’s no longer afraid of the sun setting. She’s embracing it.

Demon Within Character Text Messages – Malicevile Hellshire

I had a lot of fun writing Malicevile Hellshire, so I figured I’d share with you some text messages between him and his new favorite minion. I hope you enjoy! (click on texts to enlarge.)


mal-textFun fact: Malicevile loves to send Cami letters because it’s more intimidating than a text message. But, Malicevile loves everything about modern technology and favors a few emojis. He’s quite pleased to see the purple devil. Cry-laughing is another one of his favorites, because even though demonic soul collecting is serious business, Mal knows how to lighten up and have a good time.


malicevile-textMalicevile has a love-hate relationship with Cami throughout the series. He finds her to be overdramatic over things he doesn’t understand because he’s not thinking on a human level. But, no matter how he feels about her, one thing he is certain of–he believes that she will be by his side one way or another, even if it’s just keeping her soul.


 

malicevile-text-broken-furnitureFun fact: Malicevile has been around a long time. Longer than anyone could possibly grasp. And because he has been around so long, his wealth is unimaginable. So the only possessions he really takes pride in are souls. All the material stuff is replaceable.
