Winter Writing Update

I took a much-needed vacation in mid-November and once I came back, it was as if the wind had gone out of my sails. Not in a bad way! Actually it would be more accurate to say that instead of the hurricane frenzy I left in, I came back riding a nice subtle breeze.  So rather than try to gear up for a big push at the end of the year, I decided to just relax and let things flow.

It seemed the universe was trying to force that decision anyway, because there have been several delays in my slated writing schedule–some of my own making (hello, Bookstagram!) and some out of my control. So, here’s the scoop:

Currently Writing

Skydancer Book 2, Veil of Thorns (50K/100K words).  I crossed the halfway mark and hit a big momentum shift in the story and then paused to do some more detailed outlining, but hopefully writing will speed up now that I’ve laid down all the groundwork and can dig back into the action.  Then I usually do one round of rewrites/revisions, and my editing process is thankfully pretty quick after that. (On a side note, I LOVE this book. I hope you will too.)

I have some other small tidbits (Lilly & Peter spinoff from TTAWH) brewing as well–extras for my newsletter and faithful friends–but I still have a Halloween story I promised that is only half-written, so I’ve decided not to promise anything.  I wish I could be one of those authors who could provide a steady stream of fresh content, but that’s not really feasible while I still work a day-job.

Once I’m finished with Book 2, I’ll launch immediately into book 3 and try to wrap up the trilogy by the first quarter of 2018.

Release Schedule

  • Rain of Ash Audiobook (in production) – January*
  • Rain of Ash PAPERBACK (finally) – January
  • Wild Heart PAPERBACK – February/March
  • Veil of Thorns (ebook/paperback) – April*
  • Cloak of Deceit (new adult UF romance) Audiobook/Paperback – May
  • Crown of Stars (Skydancer Book 3) – July*
*tentative

I haven’t yet decided everything else I plan to write in 2018, but there will definitely be some free short stories and potentially a novella (set in Zyne Legacy universe) coming.  I have two other Zyne Legacy romances planned, but whether I devote time to those may depend on how the other Zyne books do.  I have been itching to get back to my dystopian vampire steampunk world (this book will be shopped to agents instead of published) so CROWN OF STARS could be my final release for 2018.

I really hope I can make all these goals.  I’m going to buckle down and do my very best to make it happen!  Thank you for sticking with me this far!

Veil of Thorns ~ Cover Reveal!

I’m so excited to finally share this!!!

I’ve had it for months but wanted to wait until I was closer to release.  This is book 2 in my Skydancer contemporary fantasy series.  Teaser below.
VeilofThornsCover

When a fallen angel arrives on Oracle Briana Spurrier’s doorstep promising a way to free her true love from his cursed imprisonment, she’s willing to defy both Zyne Law and Cosmic order to strike a bargain with him.  But the journey will take her to the far reaches of the globe and into a spellbound forest that is the lair of an ancient and evil enchantress.

Bri will need her Wolfkinde Familiar–Lucas Moncrieffe–by her side if she hopes to survive, even though that means inviting a lover from centuries ago back into her life.  As Bri navigates the trickery of the savage immortal world, her power continues to grow and she faces the most frightening question of all: can she embrace what she is without becoming one of the monsters?

COMING SPRING 2018!

Book Birthday: To Tame a Wild Heart!

The newest book in my Zyne Legacy series is available today!  It’s also on sale for $.99 through June.

She wants her freedom.

Street hustler Audrey Taylor has carved a living out of society’s fringe using her supernatural abilities. Sleeping beneath the open skies and under the radar is all she’s ever needed. But when an ancient council of witches discovers her powers, Audrey is forced to submit to their control or end up stripped of her gifts and her memories. She knows better than to rely on or trust anyone and she’s never worked well with others, so it’s just her luck to be assigned the withdrawn and irritable falconer as her mentor. Even more disturbing is her desire to penetrate his brooding façade and uncover the passion brewing just under the surface.

He needs her surrender. 

Corvin Wright values the solace of his duties and finds peace alone among the birds trusted to his keeping, but the council no longer sees a use for his gifts. His sanctuary is in danger, unless he can earn his place by babysitting one of the fledgling witches brought to the Arcanum to train in the magical arts. That proves more daunting than expected when his novice turns out to be wilder and more broken than any creature he’s ever cared for. Her stubborn spirit and dangerous beauty challenge every ideal of the life he thought he wanted, and while Audrey wrestles against her captivity, Corvin searches for a way to tame her heart before she breaks his.

Fate has other plans.
