    How can readers and authors fight white supremacy?

    I’ve struggled with how much I should say about politics on my author platform.  But sometimes, some things are too important to worry about how they will be received.  I’ve felt called again lately to say something.  Do something.  Anything.  It will be imperfect, I will probably stumble through it, but I will try. I’m going to broaden the topic to include diversity on the whole (sexual, ability, etc.) because this has been a hot topic in the publishing industry the past few years and what I will say here applies to that general conversation.

    A Very Bookish Summer Update

    Wow, this summer is flying by! Maybe that’s par for the course when I have a new release, and I’m kinda digging that I’m staying so busy (it helps keep me focused) but also a little worried as my deadline for my next book is approaching a lot faster than my word count is growing (eep!).  But, I have had a LOT of stuff going on, and August is going to be a writing month for me, with as little distractions as possible. Quick Summer Re-Cap:   Wild Heart had a fabulous release, and spent over 30 days on the top 100 list for my category! Rain of Ash got…

    Fiction Friday: Bargaining with Shadows

    It’s Friday, so I thought I’d share a little snippet from my upcoming urban fantasy romance, To Tame A Wild Heart. PRE-ORDER NOW! (Delivered June 21st) The scene below is one of my favorites, because it is the first time I’ve had a chance to delve deeper into a Hohlwen character.  The Hohlwen (Hollow Ones) are immortal fallen angels made of darkness. They must siphon the “mana” of other living creatures to survive, and Zyne witches provide the most satiating meal.  This book made me explore more about their history, their powers, and the dynamic between them and the Zyne (hint: because they pose such a threat, the Hohlwen have been conquered/enslaved by the…

    Cover Reveal! To Tame a Wild Heart

    I’m so excited to reveal the cover of my next book in the Zyne Legacy series – the first stand-alone romance set in this world. My favorite aspect of this story is getting to delve deeper into the workings of the Zyne Synod and especially the Hohlwen (immortal wraiths/fallen angels that serve the Synod). Of course, there’s plenty of magic, action, and romance too. 😉 To Tame a Wild Heart will be released later this summer! Blurb: Nomad and desperado Audrey Taylor has carved a living out of society’s fringe using her supernatural abilities and the wisdom of her truck-driver surrogate mother.  Sleeping beneath the open skies and under the…
