My fabulous cousin, Brian, has a great project that he's been working on. It's called Spark: A Creative Anthology, and they have just released Volume III, with Volume IV scheduled for a January release. He has so graciously given me a code to offer my readers a 40% discount on any volume or subscription. Check out their website and decide which one you want to order. Then leave me a positive review for one of my novels on Amazon or Goodreads and I'll email you the code once you've let me know it's posted.

See how I did that? No code for free. I'm making you work for it.

It's Here!!

Yep, it's finally here. Destiny Bound went live today on my e-store. Buy it today! It will be available on Nook and Kindle within a week and on Amazon in paperback shortly thereafter.
And in other news, I decided I wasn't ready to give up Nick and Sofia yet. I love them! One of my readers gave me a suggestion after reading this book and I decided to go with it. I am currently working on the next book Destiny Revealed. I'm hoping to release that one next Spring.
For now, buy the book!

Destiny Bound

Destiny Bound should be coming soon. The cover is done, the book is done, but still in the hot little hands of some beta readers. I would like to have it out in the early fall. So far, my readers have commented that though they love my first series, this book is their favorite. I'm not sure why, but I loved writing it more too. I will always love Waverly and Finn and definitely Ireland, but this one was fun. This time, I used French and Italian names. Maybe I was born in the wrong country, but I love other names and languages so much more than our own. I have always loved the name, Nick (maybe because it's the shortened version of my name that my family uses?), so my male lead is Nico and goes by Nick most of the time. Sofia is our leading lady, with Nathalie as her BFF. The witches and werewolves are a combination of French and Italian families. I don't explain why or when their families came to America. I didn't really think it was relevant to the story, but in my mind, as I was writing, I could hear Sofia's parents' thick Italian accents. All of the kids in the book were born in America though. 
Anywho, I did a smidgen of research for this one. Mostly witchy stuff-like spells and rituals. Aspen Springs, Arizona where they live, is roughly based on Flagstaff, Arizona. The apartment complex mentioned is an actual place I found online. This book is slightly more PG-13 than the last two. Still no premarital sex because I just don't believe in that, but some hot and heavy make out sessions happen, along with the words, "Damn" and "Hell" one or two times. I use some Italian and French in the book. My BFF from high school was born in Italy and I have verified all of the Italian with her because let's face it, the internet might not always be accurate on how to translate an exact sentence. Especially because occasionally in other languages, things don't directly translate into English. I didn't find it necessary to put any kind of dictionary in the book. Most of the time, I have Sofia repeat back to Nick in English whatever he has said in Italian. Everywhere else, you should be able to understand from the context. I'm really excited about this book and will keep you updated on its release date.

Here it is! It's finally done and available on Kindle. It will available on paperback within the next week or two. I sure hope you enjoy the sequel. It stressed me out quite a bit to try and live up to the expectations. I wanted it to be as good as the first one. I have no idea how authors can write 7 books in one series!
Happy reading!

It's Done!

Hooray! It's finally done. Return is finished and I have gone through my first edit. I am sending it out to my beta readers today and hope to have a release date before Mother's Day! I know you're squealing in anticipation with me! This was a hard road. I didn't feel like book one was the end of Finn and Waverly's story, but it was difficult to figure out what was in store for them. I am excited about their journey and hope you will be too. Jessie plays a big part of this story as well. You will be excited for her. I keep using the word, "excited," but I am!! And this is a great book for your guy friends too. There's plenty of surfing and gory fighting! I love it. It makes me smile to be graphic and gross.

Anywho, I had a reader already go through Destiny Bound, and once I'm done with another edit of that, I hope to release it as well. I want your opinion. Would you like to see it out right after Return, or would you prefer to wait awhile. I don't want to flood everyone with both books if they aren't ready. Opinions?
