World Edit

✥ Three years ago Genie’s sister (some of you may know her: Secret McQueen) averted the apocalypse and in the process the supernatural community was outed to the general population.  ~ Goodreads | Amy

Protagonist Edit

✥ When the story opens Genie is a college student living away from the pack. She has a human boyfriend and no real desire to step into a leadership role for her uncle. This is what her twin brother has been groomed for years, so it’s not really an idea that she has given much thought. She is well-known, I mean she did help her sister save the world from zombies and she’s a werewolf princess. ~ Fiction Vixen

✥ Being werewolf royalty, Genie McQueen has tried her hardest to remain “normal.” She’s been given her freedom to live away from her pack and attend college. She has a human boyfriend, human friends. Genie goes on the journey in which she learns what it is she truly wants out of her life as opposed to what she believes others want for her. while many people underestimate her and see her as weak she is anything but. Being both a werewolf and having magic gives Genie the potential for extreme power. In Bayou Blues we get to see that Genie still struggles with how to harness all that power. We see times throughout the story where the magic has the opportunity to overwhelm Genie, but it speaks to her strength and personality, that she uses every resource available to her to make sure that she doesn’t lose herself within the magic even though that would mean becoming the ultimate power. ~ Goodreads | Amy

Author Edit

Sierra Dean

Bio: Sierra Dean is a reformed historian. She was born and raised in the Canadian prairies and is allowed annual exit visas in order to continue her quest of steadily conquering the world one city at a time. Making the best of the cold Canadian winters, Sierra indulges in her less global interests: drinking too much tea and writing urban fantasy. Ever since she was a young girl she has loved the idea of the supernatural coexisting with the mundane. As an adult, however, the idea evolved from the notion of fairies in flower beds, to imagining that the rugged-looking guy at the garage might secretly be a werewolf. She has used her overactive imagination to create her own version of the world, where vampire, werewolves, fairies, gods and monsters all walk among us, and she’ll continue to travel as much as possible until she finds it for real. ~ Samhain

Book Cover Blurbs Edit

BOOK ONE—Bayou Blues (Mar 20, 2015): When your sister has saved the world, you have a lot to live up to. Genie McQueen thought she’d seen it all after helping her big sister Secret stop the Apocalypse. The dead walked, New York City burned, and things nearly went to hell in a hand basket. After it was all over, the world knew about vampires and werewolves, and Genie’s life would never be the same. But now, three years later, someone doesn’t want werewolves or any supernatural creatures to live alongside humans. A new anti-werewolf church with a charismatic leader and a cult-like following has declared open season on Genie’s whole species. When a member of her pack is kidnapped, she decides it’s time to stop going with the flow and to step up and fight for her people. Tagging along for the ride is a handsome troublemaker, Wilder Shaw, a pack outsider who just wants to save his brother, but will leave Genie’s head spinning in the process. Equally troubling are the ghosts of her past she can’t quite shake, the nightmarish figures who haunt her even when she’s wide awake, and a dark magic inside her she hasn’t yet learned to tame. Things are about to get messy in the bayou. ~ Goodreads | Bayou Blues (Genie McQueen, #1) ~ and ~ Bayou Blues | Sierra Dean (excerpt)
