Want to read some of Briana’s other works? Briana has several published books that range from urban fantasy, to murder mystery, geeky, to LGBT, to… well, let’s just say that you have to be at least 18 to check some of it out. Whether you’re looking to get lost in a new series, or want something quick and satisfying to read, Briana’s got something for everyone.
The Hunters Series
“I know of the Storyteller,” it whispers into the man’s ear. “I’ve met him. If you promise not to kill me, I’ll take you to him.”
The Hunters Series is an ongoing, young adult, urban fantasy series by Briana and her partner, Jessica Walsh. Together, the two women are creating a fantastical universe where the things that go bump in the night may deserve a second glance, even if we’re told that it’s “just the wind.”
The first book is Seeking the Storyteller. In it, we’re introduced to Alix Andre DeBenit and Randall Fagan. These two men are Hunters, people who are part of a hidden network of humans who track and kill the monsters lurking in our world so everyone else can pretend they don’t exist. But when a living shadow mentions someone called the Storyteller, Alix hesitantly decides to learn more. They say the Storyteller lives in a massive library full of books that tell every being’s life story. He can read these books, rewrite them, and change anything he wants — even if it’s already happened. After his family was killed, this kind of power is exactly what Alix is looking for, he just has to decide if working with the very creatures he’s supposed to kill is worth it.
The second book is Beneath the Chapter and takes place three months after Seeking the Storyteller.

Treat Me Kindly
“I only ask that you treat me kindly, then I will do the same for you.”
This is Briana’s very first published book! Originally published by Damnation Books (now Caliburn Press), Treat Me Kindly is an 18+ supernatural murder mystery full of wondrous creatures who are auctioned off to the highest bidder and ready to be the perfect house pets… with a few stipulations. Despite the warnings, the words of the invitation are enticing and speak of rare, exotic animals unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
To detective Alex Sampson, however, that invitation speaks of something else. Death.
Attendees at this prestigious animal auction are turning up dead, each murder more brutal than the last. The only clue to each crime points to a different animal, but when did birds and butterflies go from being aphrodisiacs for fairy tales to deadly mass murderers?
Maybe he’s right. Maybe I am the cause of this. Maybe you were normal before meeting me.
Briana’s second published book is an 18+ murder mystery that centers on a young, college-aged couple dealing with coming out to their parents. Original published by Eternal Press (now Caliburn Press), Gable’s parents don’t know about his relationship with his boyfriend, Avery, while Avery has taken the plunge with dismal results. Before Gable can even consider his next step… tragedy strikes.
When something tragic happens, you want nothing more than to close your eyes and make all of the pain go away. For Gable Peterson… it’s a little more complicated than that. When detective Maurice Ashford shows up at his door with news that his boyfriend has been found dead, Gable is left devastated. Seeking some sort of comfort, Gable closes his eyes and imagines a world where none of this happened.
And when Gable wakes up, he’s surprised to see that Avery is still alive.
If you’re looking for a quicker read, these short stories may tickle your fancy. Each story is 18+ and feature queer men of color. They are only available electronically for the time being.
Press START to Play was originally featured in the Dreamspinner Press Make a Play Daily Dose package. The story can be purchased separate from the anthology. Many thanks to Ann Uland of Arbitrary Muse Comics for her beautiful art piece of the two main characters, Lukis and Aaron.
Lukis Singleton’s once-popular sports column is fading fast, thanks to the terrible track record of the local football team. In an attempt to save the column, Lukis’s editor, John, decides he needs to go in a different direction. Video games are all the rage these days, so John insists that sending Lukis to a huge video-game tournament in Los Angeles will shake up his current readers and bring in new ones. Lukis isn’t thrilled about reporting on games with impossible powers or gamers who still live in Mom’s basement, but then he meets a tempting flaw in the gaming stereotypes of unwashed man-children. Aaron Sanders is a gorgeous breath of fresh air at the tournament who takes Lukis’s less-than-stellar view of gamers and turns it on its head, leaving Lukis to wonder if it might be worth being Aaron’s player two.
