Author: Cambria Hebert
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Release Date: May 3, 2013 (TODAY)
Renegade Book Blurb: The conclusion to the Heven and Hell series:
I’ve been beautiful. I’ve been ugly. I’ve died. I’ve been brought back. I’ve had abilities awakened within me. My strength has been tested. My beliefs have been tested.
Yet I stand.
What’s next when you’ve pretty much experienced it all?
Sam and I are picking up the pieces. We’re trying to come to terms with all we’ve lost. And as much as I would like to hide my head, ignore the reality I live every day, there is no forgetting.
Riley is in hell—I’m still not sure of his agenda. My mother’s past haunts me. And Kimber… Kimber is being herself. Cole sneaks glances at Gemma and she returns them when she thinks I don’t see.
But I do.
When Beelzebub escapes he brings his war to places I never thought he would. Earth. Maine. Home. Now everyone and everything is at risk. This has become bigger than my circle of friends. This has become bigger than me. I have to finish this. I have to find a way to stop him, to finish this war.
I just pray we will all be left standing in the end.
Renegade Excerpt: Chapter One
It begins like usual, the slightest disturbance to my sleep, making me toss and turn until I’m in that place between rest and wakefulness—not fully coherent, but enough so I could have groggy thoughts.
There is pain, not the kind of pain that would make you squirm, just enough to make you feel uncomfortable. It kind of squirms around in my limbs, like adrenaline, but not as insistent, making my body twitch.
My eyes pop open, and I shoot up off the couch, not bothering to grab a T-shirt or the shorts that lay nearby. I won’t need them. I move silently like a cat—like a hound--to the door and slide the lock over and let myself out. It’s cold out. The air doesn’t shock me back into myself. I don’t even shiver.
Then I’m racing through the yard, over the grass, and past the barn. I hear the horses in their stalls, alerted at my presence, but I ignore them and keep running. My bones come unhinged and realign. My spine stretches, begins to reshape, and my body hunches. Black, thick fur sprouts, replacing the smooth skin of my human arm and then finally the switch in my brain flips.
I am no longer human.
I am hellhound.
But I’m still me.
Only this me can give in to the frustration and sadness that seems to well up inside my human skin until I’m so full and there’s nowhere else for it to go. And so it sloshes there. It soaks in until I feel like I’ll drown.
I hate it.
That’s when the hound takes over. I can’t really deny it. It’s like a summons, a calling, a command. Usually I can tell it no, or push back, but when you’re full of sloshing emotion there’s nowhere to push it back to.
So I give in.
I lose all thought.
It’s just me, the night, and nothing else. It’s a kind of freedom I’ve never felt before.
And then I wake up.

About the Author
Tell us a bit about yourself and your family. Don’t give away any secrets but what are you about?
You mean you don’t want to hear my deepest, darkest secrets?! *Sighs* fine. And I was going to tell you too… I mean there was this one time… oh wait. You don’t want to know. *Grins evilly*
Okay. So about me. I’m a writer and mom by day and a stripper by night. Okay, I’m not really a stripper. Ha ha ha. But sometimes I dance around in my underwear. At home. In my closet. Because when I dance anywhere else my kids tell me I’m horrible at dancing. Lol. I have a degree in cosmetology (meaning if you need a haircut or a mani/pedi call me!) but after I had my kids I decided to give writing a go – something I have been interested in since I was a teenager.
I’m also really afraid of chickens (well all birds actually) – they really do scare me. *shudders* (hey I never said that I was normal, lol). My hobbies include watching TV – my favorite shows are Vampire Diaries (totally team Damon) and Teen Wolf. I also like to garden (that means I buy pretty flowers then point to places in my yard where my husband must plant them, lol) and I also enjoy running. It’s good stress relief.
One of your favorite quotes?
“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.” I don’t know who said it but I think it’s true. It’s all about state of mind.
What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing?
Well I have totally gotten to hang out with rock stars, ride in limos and make millions of dollars!! Oh wait. That was a dream.
Seriously, I have gotten to hold my books in my hands, meet tons of great people and prove to myself that I can do anything I put my mind too.
About the book
Tell us a little bit about your book?
Renegade is the final book (book 4) in the Heven and Hell series. It’s kind of the final battle between Heven and her greatest enemy (Beelzebub in Hell). I wanted it to be a throwback to the first book in the series but only amped up a bit.
How did you choose the genre you write in?
It’s really the genre I like to read and so I am just drawn to the paranormal/romance/fantasy worlds.
What are you currently working on?
Well currently I have 3 projects started and I am trying to figure out which one to go with…. Lol. One of the books is the next Death Escorts book.
If you gave one of your characters an opportunity to speak for themselves, what would they say?
I’m sure they would never shut up. They speak for themselves in my head all the time. That’s how Riley ended up with a motorcycle in Renegade. LOL. Oh and they would also say what a fabulous creator they have. ;)
Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
Thank you. Thank you all for supporting this series and me. For reading it. For liking it and for buying it.
Cookies or Cake? Cookies.
Ice tea or lemonade? Lemonade.
Night or day? Night
Laptop or desktop for writing? Laptop
Favorite color? Orange and Purple.
