Storm Force Rebranding: Tina Storm: Demon Hunter and Demon’s Blood

Today I’m very excited to reveal the rebranding for the Storm of Blood, now titled Demon’s Blood.

The very talented Anna of Cover Couture is responsible for Demon’s Blood’s cover and I love it! It gives such a great Gothicy-paranormal-urban fantasy feel to the novel, which I think really fits.

Demon’s Blood
by Lissa Bilyk
Genre: YA Paranormal


Australian teenage demon hunter Tina Storm has been banned from using her lightning vanquish. To earn it back, she has to infiltrate a coven of witches suspected of using illegal blood magic to control people’s minds. Resident witch hottie Lachlan’s sudden interest in her can’t be coincidence – can it? After all, he’s pretty popular with the other girls in the coven – especially Chelsea, who’s decided Tina is evil for stealing her boyfriend.

Meanwhile, Tina has to juggle her end of year exams, her demon hunting, and her family as her relationship with Chinese shapeshifting demon Ten deepens. She’s also being hunted by an ancient vampire for the death of the vampire’s offspring. Can Tina solve the blood magic mystery, settle the vampire with a grudge, and soothe her romantic relationships without the help of her powers? How much can one teenage demon hunter take?

Paranormal Short Story Collections Free For 3 Days

A few weeks ago I began an experiment that is still ongoing.

I made my two Kindle Select books, paranormal short story collections The Archive of Lost Dreams and Storm Front, free on Amazon for two days.

But I didn’t tell anyone about it, because I wanted to see how the algorithm works without publicity and if they could be discovered organically.

I’m not into marketing my books, you see. I believe that if I make them available and keep them available, someone might find what they’re looking for.

However, to continue the experiment (and because I have three days leftover) I am making them free again from 15th April to 17th April.

This time I’m telling everyone.

You can find them on by clicking on the covers.

Lost Dreams Cover Change

One of the perks of being an indie author is the ability to change the cover art of your books whenever you feel like it.

I’ve never been 100% happy with the original cover for The Archive of Lost Dreams because the Smashwords version, which uploaded to Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Diesel and Sony among others, was always a little blurry no matter what I did.

So I’ve changed the cover ever so slightly. It’s still got the same feel to it and it’s very similar to the original cover. I like this one better, though.

New Cover:

As a side note, I’ve temporarily unpublished The Archive of Lost Dreams and Storm Front from the Smashwords store and affiliates. They’ve been available for free there for quite some time (thanks for the downloads!), but while I was doing that, I was unable to make them free on Amazon. This gives me a chance to enroll them in Kindle Select and make them free for five days in a 3 month period. Keep a look out for the free promotions on Amazon!

Storm of Blood Cover Reveal

Once upon a time I was contacted by a just starting out artist named Cameo Anderson who wanted to draw me some fan art of Tina Storm. I obliged, and you can see this work on art on my Fun Stuff page. After I saw what Cameo could do, I asked her to draw me some more artwork for use as covers.

Today, I am revealing the finished art work.

Ladies and gentlemen and kittens of all ages, I present to you:
