We're delighted to tell you all about
Devil Take Me
an anthology featuring
Rhys Ford, C.S. Poe, Jordan L. Hawk, TA Moore, Ginn Hale, and Jordan Castillo Price
When Rhys Ford first approached me with the concept for the Devil Take Me anthology, I wasn’t sure what to write about. Sure, it had to about someone who sold their soul to the devil getting the opportunity to get in back in trade for a favor, but beyond that the sky was the limit. I thought up and discarded several initial ideas, none of which excited the writing side of my brain. What sort of person would sell their soul, and why? And how would that affect their relationship with the devil they sold it to?
Then it occurred to me I was approaching it all wrong. I’d been thinking the story would have a grim and gritty air, and be focused on the mortal who sold their soul. But what I really wanted to write was a rom com from the demon’s point of view.
From there, Infernal Affairs exploded onto the page. It follows the adventures of Ralgath, the Underworld’s newest—and most incompetent—crossroads demon as he tries to get his job back, wrangle a hellhound named Fluffpaw, and romance Chess the non-binary monster-hunter. It was goofy, absurd, and tremendously fun to write.
I never thought I’d end up writing anything half as fluffy as Infernal Affairs turned out to be, but I’m incredibly glad I did. I hope you have as much fun with Ralgath and the gang as I did.

They’re one hell of a good time.
Infernal Affairs Blurb:
Chess has spent the last three years using their infernally granted powers to do good. But now Ralgath has a new offer for them: help him find the missing demons, and he’ll return Chess’s soul.
After their last encounter, Chess is the last person Ralgath should be interested in. But the passion that initially drew them together still burns hotter than the flames of the Underworld. Chess claims they never meant to hurt Ralgath, but can Ralgath afford to trust them? Because while Ralgath may have Chess’s soul, he’s increasingly certain Chess owns his heart.
