Today's snippet is from Impcatcher, which is now on sale on Amazon for the Kindle and in paperback, and DriveThru in pdf format. The general epub version is at Lulu.

Hulberlok looked at me with unmitigated contempt. “Come off it, mage. You don't really think any demon's interested in that sort of gibberish. Your soul isn't going to fill my belly or give me any kind of currency.”
I laughed. “All right. How about my eternal gratitude... and as much of my blood as you can find on the floor.”
“Not even from a vein? You cheapskate.”
I shrugged slightly. “That's the deal.”
“I thought you were an honourable man, mage.”
I laughed aloud. “What gave you that idea, imp?”
