A Day in the Life of a Devil’s Assistant

Guest post by HD Smith of the Devil’s Assistant Series. Be sure to check out the giveaway at the bottom of the page!

Claire’s employment history has had many ups and downs (occasionally by choice), and now that she’s finally away from the daily grind of the office, her previous full time gig as the devil’s administrative assistant is up for grabs… at least until The Boss can force Claire to come back. But in the meantime, here is the post if you’re interested in the real scoop on being the King of Hell’s admin!

The executive administrative assistant to Conrad Bosh III, the CEO at Tucker Bosh, needs the following skills (and what that really means):

  • Ability to distribute information to corporate officers (deliver messages from The Boss to his kids [hellspawn] and associates, without getting killed [or indefinitely detained in a ring of salt guarded by rabid dogs] in the process)
  • Ability to copy, file, process, and collate important company directives (handle disgruntled employees being let go by the company … i.e. processing said employees one way ticket to Hell)
  • Ability to form synergistic relationships with all departments (take calls from Maintenance on why they don’t get dental … no one gets dental)
  • Ability to work closely with other executive admins (inform The Boss of anything remotely unpleasant because the responsible parties don’t have the balls to do it themselves, e.g. the company is being audited—again, or Maintenance wants dental [see above comment—no one gets dental!])
  • Ability to interact with previous corporate assets (deal with the ex-wives when The Boss can’t be bothered—let’s just say “Hell hath no fury” if you know what I mean)

Now, Claire’s been locked out of her realm, given an assistant that doesn’t actually assist, and told to handle a small problem in Underworld that might just get her killed.

And to top it all off, Mab’s made one of the contenders her untouchable. So, yeah, you could say Claire’s having one of those days.

ASIN: B00PNVCQ8U

Number of pages: 290

Word Count: 90,000

Cover Artist: Robin Ludwig Designs

Book Description:

Last spring Claire’s seemingly normal—if not totally screwed up—life was tossed on its head. For five years she’d been one of the damned—a human that knows the truth about the otherworldly among us. She’d worked for The Boss—the Demon King himself—as his administrative assistant, handling everything from early retirements, to Maintenance’s incessant requests for dental.

No one gets dental.

Then she walked into Purgatory—totally not her fault—went back in time, and awakened powers she never knew existed. Now Claire has a prophecy hanging over her head, a diamond ring hidden in her sock drawer, and the blood of a long dead royal running through her veins.

And it’s only going to get worse.

Her vow to live free or die takes a serious hit when she’s forced back under The Boss’s protection. Of course, there’s no protection from fate, or the Bounty Hunter sent to deliver her to Purgatory. And as if being “the girl” in the prophecy wasn’t enough, Claire soon discovers there are three other contenders for her role—two of whom want her dead.

Follow more of Claire’s adventures in Dark Awakened, the second installment of the Devil’s Assistant Series, to find out if she’s lucky enough to escape with her life, or if she’s just the first notch on the next contender’s belt.

Cover Artist: Robin Ludwig Designs

Book Description:

Claire, the Devil’s assistant, knows very little about the world she was dropped into five years ago, when she inherited her mother’s unpaid debt to the Demon King. She certainly didn’t expect to be a contender for the Fallen Queen’s throne, a target for the Druid King’s mafia, or a suspect in the murder of Junior, the Devil’s oldest hell spawn.

In a last ditch effort to save her life and get out of her deal with the Devil, she sets out to solve Junior’s murder only to be taken prisoner by the four most dangerous immortal hell spawn alive.

Not to be out done, the Pagan Queen Mab, claims Claire for entering her realm uninvited. She has an old debt to settle with her brother the Devil. Taking Claire from him after losing her years ago is just icing on the cake.

Will Claire win her freedom, and save herself from the Devil? Or be trapped by Mab forever?
