Note: The Elemental Assassin books and stories are intended for adults only. You should be 18 years old or older to read the books or the excerpts that are posted on my website. Also, please be aware that some of the stories do contain spoilers.
I’ve written several short stories to go along with the Elemental Assassin books. You don’t have to read the short stories to enjoy the books, but I thought the stories would be something fun and extra to offer readers.
This short story takes place before the events of Spider’s Bite, the first book in the Elemental Assassin series. In Spider’s Bargain, Gin Blanco takes on a corrupt cop, but only one of them will be left standing in the end.

Hanging out with Gin Blanco and Jane Yellowrock — The Complete Interview
Here’s a fun extra for urban fantasy readers. Faith Hunter writes the Jane Yellowrock urban fantasy series (along with the Soulwood series). Many folks who read Faith’s books also read my Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series, starring Gin Blanco, my assassin heroine. So we thought it would be fun to put together an interview with our two leading ladies, Jane and Gin. And thanks to Mud at Let’s Talk! Promotions for agreeing to “host” the interview.
