Happy Release Day to Dominion Rising.

It’s finally here! I’m very excited for the release of Vengeance: Warships of the Spire as part of the Dominion Rising anthology.

For one thing, it’s going to be huge. In every way. This beast of an anthology is over 5000+ pages.

For another, big badass Warships! What’s not to love about a hero packing enough power to reduce a solar system to rubble? Not that he would, of course. He’s the good guy after all, and, really, he’s a big softy. But yeah. More power! And his partner, Liv? She’s pretty badass at times herself.

If you haven’t already grabbed your copy, Dominion Rising will be 99c for the next week. Don’t miss out.

What book should I write first?

I’ll be finishing up my co-author project for the Dominion Rising boxset in the coming week and that means onward and forward with a new project. So…which one will it be? You decide! 🙂


Sorceress at War is now available for preorder!

News! News! News! 🙂 Sorceress at War, book 4 in my Gargoyle and Sorceress Tales urban fantasy series, is now up for preorder on Amazon and Kobo. (Nook and iBooks are always slower, but those will be coming soon. Maybe tomorrow or the next day.)

Anyways, Sorceress at War is almost here and it has been fun to write about the farther escapades of Lillian, Gregory, Shadowlight and Corporal Anna McKenzie.

To my readers–thank you for being awesome!

Here, have a blurb:

War is coming. The Lady of Battles will have it no other way.

The demi-goddess is moving her pawns and dark knights into place, preparing to strike. Earth must be ready, but first Lillian needs to ensure that the uneasy alliance between the Fae and the human military does not fail. Every ally is needed if earth is to have any hope of surviving the coming war.

As fate draws friends and enemies closer together and demi-gods arrange their pieces on a vast otherworldly chess board, one new player has appeared unexpectedly—Lillian’s new doppelganger clone. She isn’t certain if it’s pure, old-fashioned jealousy or something more sinister that has her watching the newly cloned Sorceress with distrust, but the fact remains that her doppelganger’s allegiance remains unknown.

For the good of the alliance, Lillian must find out if this new sorceress is on their side, or playing for the Battle Goddess. Or if she has an agenda of her own, one that no one can predict.

It’s snowing buckets. Curl up with Sorceress Rising. Flash 99c sale.

I just wanted to give you the heads-up that my three book boxset up for sale again. I took it down several months ago because I changed the series name) but it’s up again now so don’t buy it if you’ve already read the first three books. However if you’ve read the first three books and wouldn’t mind leaving a review, that would be totally awesome! Here’s the LINK.

Onward to the real news: If you live in a part of the world where you’re getting snowed on, like me, you may enjoy reading a few chapters of about my gargoyles between bouts of snow shoveling. So I’ve discounted Sorceress Rising (book two of the Gargoyle and Sorceress series) to 99c for 3 days only. If you haven’t tried this series yet, you can get book one on Instafreebie. JUST CLICK HERE.

Now, back to working on Sorceress At War. By the way, Shadowlight just can’t keep out of terrible and Gregory is a little confused with the whole Lillian and her doppelganger twin-self. The things authors do to their characters. ::evil laugh::


Ignorance nearly killed Lillian once.

That time, she’d known nothing of magic until Gregory, her Gargoyle Protector, awoke from his stone sleep and saved her from demons escaped from the Magic Realm. They defeated the demonic Riven at great personal cost, one which forced them both to hibernate for months while they mended.

Healed, Lillian wakes to a world greatly changed, one where her sleepy northern town has been overrun by military, scientists, and paparazzi. Apparently, her battle with the Riven did not go completely unnoticed, and her actions put her Coven family at risk of exposure.

These new tensions unearth another concern. Lillian and Gregory may be one being in the Spirit Realm, soul mates in the most literal sense, but it does not guarantee a perfect accord here on earth, especially when Gregory’s clearly defined sense of good and evil urge him to eradicate anyone he deems as evil—which, to her dismay, includes a good chunk of humanity.

But their troubles are not limited to humans, not when another, older power rises from the ocean’s depths. Tethys, a siren of the ancient world, has her own plans for Gregory. For the first time in their many lives, Lillian finds herself at odds with her other half.

And if she does not master her own magic, this battle will become her greatest defeat.

Death’s Queen Release Week Round Up.

A big thank you to my readers! (Yes. I’m now working on the next two Gargoyle and Sorceress Books! And the spin-off series. So 2017 is year of the gargoyle.)
Numbers Data (for all those authors who are lurking my posts) 🙂

Death’s Queen made it as high as #5275 in the Amazon store on launch day. Woot! It has since dropped back, but that’s to be expected as I did almost zero marketing with this one and it’s not exclusive to amazon, so you have to sell twice as many books to achieve the same rank to make up for the lack of Kindle Unlimited borrows. I’m newly wide, so haven’t gained much traction at the other retailers yet. Here’s the numbers for Death’s Queen over the last four days, including pre-order sales. Amazon: 397, Kobo: 31, iBooks: 7, and Nook: 4. So, yeah, small potatoes. More readers will discover the book over time. Marketing always helps, too.

Anyways, I’ll be increasing the price to $4.99 later this weekend, so grab it now if you want it at a discount. If you’re new to this series, I would suggest starting with book one. You can get Betrayal’s Price FREE by clicking here: KOBO,   NOOK,   iBOOKS, and   AMAZON.


After her two sisters are caught up by destiny’s call, Lamarra Stonemantle is the only one left to play the role of dutiful noble daughter. A task she embraces in an effort to hide the dark magic living inside her own soul. Now that power is whispering its seductive promises again, telling her only a long dead king can complete her soul.

That unknown being terrifies her, but when Lord Master Trensler orders his acolytes to capture Lamarra, she must flee her home. To her dismay, she is rescued by tomb guards sent by her dead king.

Lamarra soon learns her fate is just as terrible as she thought, but Dead King Soryn isn’t anything like she feared. He’s worse. Yet he’s also gentle and kind and he knows a way to track and destroy the acolytes’ evil god.





KOBO         NOOK         IBOOKS   
I hope you enjoyed Death’s Queen. Book 5, The Prince’s Gryphon, will be published later this year. Likely December.

A book for Earth Day.

Surreal tree in a calm lake during sunset.
April 22nd Happy Earth Day!

I’m an introvert environmentalist. (Not one of those big brave, put my life on the line types—Although, I highly respect people that are willing to put their lives on the line for our species’ and the planet’s future.)

Instead, I try to consider the earth in my day to day lifestyle. I have a car, but I live close enough to walk to work, so I walk. I plant trees and garden to provide food and habitat for animals. I try to be energy efficient as much as I’m able.

Sometimes my environmental mindset works its way into my writing. I try not to club my readers over the head with it.

However, I just watched the documentary Racing Extinction.

Maybe I need to work environmental issues into my writing more often. The human race needs to get its collective head out of its collective _____ (fill in the blank) if we want a planet for our grandchildren to inherit.

Stone’s Song, book 2 of my Avatars series, has the most blatant environmental theme. In it, an ancient siren awakens to find the ocean realm slowly dying because of what humans have been doing to it for the last hundred years. She sets out to destroy the human race to save everything else. (So, yeah, villain. But she’s the one villain I’ve always felt bad about killing off in the end. Although I gave her a hero’s death in the end.)

Wish I had thought about this sooner. I would have done some kind of promo/fundraiser for a charity.

So in lieu of that, I’m going to try my hand at fundraising for an environmental charity.  I’ll give all proceeds from Stone’s Song to a charity. I’ll give myself a year (Earth Day 2017) to see how much I can make. I’ll post updates throughout the year. I just came up with this in the last hour, so yeah, not really well thought out yet…..

I’ll call this a work in progress.
