I was thrilled to be able to host and participate in all of the UF/Paranormal panel discussions this year. You can find the whole bunch here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqX61PDlUxR9mI6zBWJwcMiqHUGGMWBMZMay 17, 2019 at 2:59 pm #1832May 17, 2019 at 3:19 pm #1842
“Well written, good characterizations, a perfect example of a good urban fantasy. My only complaint is I finished it too soon.”
“Full of suspense, mystery, and action. Strong female protagonist. Full of sarcasm and stubbornness.”
“Anyone who appreciates works of magical realism, urban fantasy involving gods or witches, and especially any fan of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods would love Too Wyrd.”
“I enjoyed this more than Jim Butcher’s Dresden series – definitely a world worth discovering.”
“Good pacing. Great characters. A good, no, a very good read!!”
“I was absolutely riveted from the very first page.”
“I got this book because it was free. i never expected it to leave me wanting more!”
Nicola was never a hero. She was an everyday single mother, Heathen witch, and herbalist. She was happy with her quiet life until the night Joseph showed up at her door with news that her step-sister joined a cult… and she had gone missing.
Pressured by family loyalties, Nicola goes back to Indianapolis, dodging old enemies and calling on old friends to help her find her step-sister. What she finds instead is an ex with super-powers, monsters and demigods on the streets, and a detective ready to bring her in for a murder investigation…or three.
Can Nicola become the hero she needs to be, or will she lose everyone she cares for?May 17, 2019 at 3:26 pm #1846
It’s Urban Fantasy, but there are no vampires. It’s about a woman, but she’s not really sexy. It’s magical realism, but there are no fireballs. It’s based on Norse myths, but there’s no Loki, just a damn funny Tom Hiddleston reference. 😛
Nicola just wants to stay home and raise her kid, but her stepsister is getting into trouble AGAIN. So off she goes to the rescue.
She uncovers an ex with super-powers, a Valkyrie among the homeless, demons trying to kill her, a plot to end the world, and a bitter detective who wants to take her down for a murder or three!
This was not the week she had planned.May 17, 2019 at 4:21 pm #1874
“So exciting that I couldn’t put it down to make my coffee”
“I feel that the world needs to discover Sarah Buhrman.”
“Once again Sarah Buhrman and her heroine Nicola trapped me in an awesome book!”
“If a sequel can best its primary, then Sarah Buhrman has done it!”
“The Runespells series knocks its second volume outside the park just like it did its first!”
“Buhrman has woven action and mystery into Norse Mythology and created more than just an urban fantasy series.”
“[Fluffy Bunny] shows Buhrman’s ability to tackle serious issues and emotions in her writing.”
Nicola was never a hero. She was an everyday single mother, Heathen witch, and herbalist. And she wanted nothing more than to forget the cluster of a situation she’d barely survived only a few months ago. But explain that to Hel.
As it turns out, Hel wants the souls she was promised, but something paranormal is keeping a lot of souls out of her reach. Nicola goes undercover into an isolated healing cult to find out what is going on, and if it is connected to the Runespells. The problem with cults, however, is the brainwashing.
Abandoned to her own devices by the gods and far from the friends that helped her before, can Nicola survive the tests long enough to complete her mission? And will she still be herself if she does?May 17, 2019 at 4:23 pm #1875May 17, 2019 at 4:35 pm #1877
“The characters are well developed and the heroes are relatable.”
“Very unexpected. I loved the characters and their interaction.”
Hound Dog crosses the pond to help out a former Indie street punk turned SHARP in over his head with a neo-Nazi gang. Detective Ames, newly promoted to Sergeant and in charge of a brand new division, is in London for an international training seminar.
Their paths cross when Det. Ames’ liaison gets caught up in a shoot out with the neo-Nazis… only the neo-Nazis aren’t using guns.
Have the neo-Nazi’s been reviving the occultish practices of Hitler’s troops? Can Hound Dog and Det. Ames figure it out before more innocent by-standers are killed?May 17, 2019 at 4:39 pm #1879
“This one is the best yet!”
“Even better than books 1 & 2!”
“Before I knew it, it was four o’clock in the morning and the book was done. A real page turner!”
“An enthusiastic five stars!”
“I can’t recommend this enough.”
Nicola was never a hero… until she had to be. She was an everyday single mother, Heathen witch, and herbalist. And she felt the scars of her prior quests deep in her soul and her psyche.
While on a vacation trip with her bff, Joseph, hiking along the Appalachian Trail, Nicola hears of a “miraculous” escape from prison. Signs point to a Runespell that releases all forms of entrapment, and the convict is also on the Trail. With a deadly creature waiting to be freed, and Ragnarok once more on the line, the race is on. But Nicola is hindered by PTSD, and Joseph doesn’t seem to understand the sacrifices she might have to make, including their friendship.
Can Nicola overcome the fears and anxieties from her last adventure in time to stop the end of the world… again?May 17, 2019 at 8:34 pm #1907
“Absolutely worth the read.”
“I am impressed, enthralled and I loved every second reading them!”

“Entertaining and thought provoking”
“Well worth reading”

“An authentic atmosphere that pulled me into the story”

Trance, the mediator for Super Powered Anonymous, a support group for people with superpowers unsuitable for caped heroics, is used to helping with self esteem, super power accidents, and complaints about having to carry SP Liability Insurance. Her ability to calm emotions and cool tempers gives her an edge with that. What she doesn’t expect is when a supposedly-reformed super-villain wants to join the group.
Mute is tired of the second-rate villain life. He can shut the haters up, but he can’t give his life a purpose. He’s looking for a second chance, but suspicion follows him everywhere.
When SPA attendees turn up dead, Mute is the prime suspect. Can he convince the others he’s innocent? Will their “lame” powers be enough to solve the case?
