New Release: Mother of the Chosen

New Release Time!

I’m thrilled to have my latest book released, Mother of the Chosen. It has been in my head for a long time, so it see it finally coming to light is beyond awesome. Adriella, the main character, has always wanted a child. When she finally becomes pregnant, a royal decree says that any child must be killed to protect the High King from prophecy. What ensues is a mad dash for Adriella and her baby’s life.

Reviews are coming in and people are loving the series as much as I enjoyed writing it. As a warning–yes, it does end in a cliffhanger, but the next book should be coming out the end of July. So, you shouldn’t have too long of a wait until Adriella’s story continues.

Links are below. Let me know what you think. I’d love to hear your opinion!

Description:

Be careful what you wish for…

Adriella is pregnant with the child she’s always wanted.

She can’t wait to share the joy with her husband. Prophecy has other plans. The countryside is a ablaze with rumors of a soon-to-be-born child who will destroy the High King.

A royal decree demands the death of any child who could threaten the throne, including Adriella’s unborn baby. Worse, her husband is one of the soldier’s enlisted to carry out the king’s demands.

Now Adriella must keep her secret and flee, rather than celebrate with her spouse.

With the High King’s men searching for anyone who defies him, the country is full of grieving parents, and the streets run red with the blood of the innocents. Adriella knows her chances of survival are slim, but she’ll sacrifice everything to stay one step ahead of the law.

If she can’t evade capture, she’ll lose the one thing more precious to her than her own life—her child.

Mine to Spell Release Date

It’s official. I’ve been working on MINE TO SPELL, book two in the MINE series, for one year today. Which doesn’t even account for all the note taking and plotting I did before officially starting to write it. This is the longest I’ve ever taken to write a book.

Honestly, it’s driving me batty. 2013 ended up being crazy year, both in my writing life and personal life, which contributed to taking longer than expected. It’s also why you haven’t seen me around as much here and on social media. I’m still lurking, but almost all my writing juice is busy elsewhere. I miss you guys! But I think we’d both rather have more books out, yes? Enough explanation, off to the fun stuff!

Everything is finally coming together, writing/editing moving along faster, feedback coming in positive, almost all the words are there, and I’m doing the polishing on it now. Which means:

MINE TO SPELL will be released May 5, 2014

Cover and description will be following in the weeks to come!

So excited to share this story with you. The story came very naturally and was a fun exploration of the Mine world. I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Note: This novella is only available for purchase on Amazon. If it presents a problem, please feel free to email me and we’ll see what we can work out.

 

 

Novella Announcement – Mine to Tarnish

I’m thrilled to announce the secret project I’ve been working on is a Mine Prequel Novella. Those of you who love Katherine can learn more about her and how she came to be tarnished. And I know what you really want is the details, so we’ll get right to it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask or leave a comment.

A Mine Prequel Novella

December 2, 2013

Katherine’s place is the same as any woman’s—on the shelf next to the dresses and bolts of cloth. When she’s sold to a warlock, life grows even bleaker. Her new owner is as old and rancid as he is cruel, driving her to do the unthinkable: run.

Nothing prepared her for being on her own. And she’s definitely unprepared for the warlocks hunting her down. But she must stay one step ahead because if caught, the best she can hope for is death.

My Big News

As I’m sitting down to write this little butterflies are fluttering around and quickly turning to rays of sunlight struggling to burst out of me. And I’m a touch weepy. So here we go- before I turn into a puddle.

About a year ago, I got an idea. What if girls were married off, but for something other than money. Something they had, but they couldn’t control. Like…magic! And that was the start of a Young Adult Fantasy that’s taken over my life.

About six months later, it was fully written, revised, rewritten, revised again, given to critic partners, revised again- well, you get the picture. I dutifully sent it off to a list of agents. While I had my moments of doubt like all authors do, I believed in it. It felt right, good. Replies came in. Contests were entered. There some really great comments from a few agents and other writers. People liked the bits they were seeing and wanted to see more.

But then something wasn’t feeling right. I stopped sending queries even though I still had a list of agents. I let it sit while I worked on another project. But I keep thinking about not only how much I loved my book, but other people’s response to it. I couldn’t bring myself to do nothing. I hemmed and hawed. Should I send it to agents again? Should I go directly to publishers? Should I look at smaller publishers? What would be best for me and my book?

At first the answer came slowly. It had always been there tugging in the back of my mind. But soon it was tugging harder and harder. Then it morphed into a full on yank that felt not just better than any other option, but like it was the right option. The one I needed to go with. And so I decided to self-publish. That’s right, I’m going indie!

My debut YOU ARE MINE, a YA Fantasy, will be published on May 6, 2013.

To all those who have already given me so much support and encouragement and to those of you who will help in the future thank you, thank you, thank you! And yes, I’m no longer just a touch weepy, I’m full out bawling. No, you don’t get a picture.

And typical me, I rambled longer than I meant to. So, without further ado, here’s the blurb and a link to good reads if you’d like to add it.

YOU ARE MINE

Serena knows a few simple things. She will always be owned by a warlock. She will never have freedom. She will always do what her warlock wishes, regardless of how inane, frivolous, or cruel it is. And if she doesn’t follow the rules, she will be tarnished. Spelled to be bald, inked, and barren for the rest of her life—worth less than the shadow she casts.

Then her ownership is won by a barbarian from another country. With the uncertainty that comes from belonging to a new warlock, Serena questions if being tarnished is really worse than being owned by a barbarian, and tempts fate by breaking the rules. When he looks the other way instead of punishing her, she discovers a new world. The more she ventures into the forbidden, the more she learns of love and a freedom just out of reach. Serena longs for both. But in a society where women are only ever property, hoping for more could be deadly.
