Releasing Sep/Oct 2014

Blurb:
With the loss of her sister still weighing down both her conscience and her heart, Kailin Odel must take on the next part of her mission – find her mother and Anjelo and bring them back from Wrythiin.

Kailin uses her mother’s portal key and enters the Wraith world intent on saving the ones she loves, but from the moment she arrives her mission is fraught with peril.
Arriving in Wrythiin, Kai steps right into the middle of a Wraith rebellion. And only to find that though Anjelo is safe, her mother is held captive by a subversive faction of Wraiths once led by the Wraithlord that Kai had killed.

From Wraiths to Shapeshifters, rebel causes to fraying family ties, to inexplicable new powers, Kai must fight her darkest demons while entering the blackest pits of Wrythiin to save her mother.

Audiobooks on the Horizon

It’s been a while since I blogged so I thought I’d drop by and make a little announcement.
At the moment I am working on Audiobooks for both Dead Radiance (Valkyrie #1) and Skin Deep (Skinwalker #1). My voice person Hollie Jackson [pretty sure that voice person is the least glam way of describing this rocking chick but all other words have failed me] is an amazing woman. She’s doing the voice for both books and I am so thrilled and super super excited to release them as they are ready.
I adore Hollie this much ==> She will produce any of my books that she wants from here to eternity.
That said, I’m hoping we will see Dead Radiance some time end of July to middle of Aug and then Skin Deep a month to 6 weeks later, but I’ve made a decision not to be too stuck on dates. The only hard and fast dates I will handle while still remaining sane are those from my amazing editors. So nope, I’m not imposing deadlines on myself.
So, that was my news at this time – 2 amazing audiobooks coming soon and to be available where audiobooks are sold.

Skin Deep Review Tour – Kailin Odel Character Profile

 

SD Tour BannerELIZA DUSHKU as Kailin

Eliza Dushku is my inspiration for Kailin Odel, from both Buffy and Angel days and a little of her Tru Calling character. She’s feisty, stubborn, bad-ass as it gets and that’s what I love about Kailin. Kailin is carrying a deep emotional pain (her mother abandoned her and her family when Kailin was two). In the leadup to Skin Deep and through the story Kailin is trying to deal with this abandonment and the ramifications of her mother’s absence in her life. All Kailin ever wanted was to be loved- something that’s hard to get from a father who still nurses the hurt of his wife’s departure.

Kailin is a complex character. She wants to be strong and yet she desperately need to be taken care of. She wants her independence but she longs for her family’s involvement in her life. She falls into Wraith hunting when she arrives in Chicago and discovers she has the ability to see track the soul-sucking monsters by the coral residue they leave behind. She watches and learns and soon knows how to fight them how to kill them. She’s a shifter on a monster hunting mission.

And the only person who’s been able to throw her for a loop is the oh-so-sexy Logan Westin. He’s so wrong for her – he’s Human and he’s a cop, two superb reason she should run as far as her panther legs can carry her. But the attraction is intense, and the two are on a course for a sizzling head-on collision.

Join Kailin as she hunts down a vicious killer, as she gets closer and closer to the truth about her mother, and as she tries to learn do whats always been the hardest…trust.

My Journey in Publishing- 16 months on

I was just wrapping a bunch of SKIN DEEP orders, getting ready to send out some signed book orders and I got into a contemplative mood. It’s been 16 months since I waded into publishing, since Dead Radiance was published, and I was griping (silently) that I hadn’t done well enough. Three books out in 16 months is a pretty good release rate but what bugs me is that Dead Chaos should have released in Feb but will likely only make it to my readers in Aug 2013. Plus Skin Deep was meant to release in Nov 2012 but only made it there 5 months later in late April 2013.

I know, I can hear a few of you going ‘But you’ve been through so much, stop being hard on yourself’, but you see I am always the taskmaster of myself.  I told readers who were clamouring for DEAD CHAOS that it would release Feb 2013 and it didn’t. To me that’s just not acceptable.

Still I’m trying to be positive, looking forward to Fire reaching readers mid to late July. I’m deep in edits right now, the heaters warming my feet and its storming outside. Love rainy days –the only thing missing is a roaring fire.

I’ve been treated by Miss 17. Just love TYPO!

2013-06-04 14.44.18

The cover for FIRE is well on its way to completion- I’m hoping to show it off in the next two weeks.

I’m still putting the finishing touches on Dead Chaos, keeping my fingers crossed that Valkyrie fans will like where the story is going. Fingers crossed, with editing going well and cover done on time, DEAD CHAOS should release mid August.

Plus there is Seals of Hades (UF/Paranormal) that needs one round of revisions before it’s off to my editor. As yet I can’t stick a date onto this novel (yeah I’m not making any promises lol)

And just as an aside- some work is being done on the second book in the DarkWorld series. I just couldn’t help myself, I’ve fallen back in love with Kailin’s worlds and all the interesting characters in SKIN DEEP.

And just so I can remind myself that my books are actually REAL
