It has been a long time since I’ve done a post here for you all! I apologize for that. I’m here to giive you a comprehensive look at what I’m writing, my schedule AND give you a sneak peak teaser of my latest Work-In-Progress, Rightful Reign!
As many of you know, A Hunter Within (Book 1 in the Alliance of Power Duology) was released this past July! It has received fantastic reviews, and I’m absolutely thrilled you all are enjoying this new series! Psst, if you haven’t snagged it, you can on Amazon & Kindle Unlimited here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FKWSSLV/

Now that you know what’s out NOW, let’s get onto the NEW items!! My next release will be Rightful Reign! Rightful Reign is part of a limited edition, paranormal romance and urban fantasy boxed set releasing in early February 2019!! There will be a follow on novel coming out around the same time as well! Which means, you can read the book in the boxed set and continue right onto the conclusion! The title to the follow on novel, as well as the Series itself and cover reveals, are forthcoming. Make sure to stay tuned for that! Here’s a teaser to Rightful Reign to wet your appetite!
“Who are you and why are you following me?” I repeated.
He raised one eyebrow smugly and began stalking around me, taking me in.
I huffed at his demeanor and wandering eyes.
“Excuse me?” I said, forcefully, knowing full well I needed to sound more disgusted that I felt. At the moment, his eyes made me more nervous than uncomfortable. “Do you mind?”
He came around front again, facing me and folded his arms across his chest. His white shirt was slightly damp on his chest, no doubt thanks to the stifling air. The lone breeze from earlier had been hot and dense and did nothing for the heat. He stood there, still watching me not saying a thing. His silence was bordering on the edge of uncomfortable, but I wouldn’t show him anything that made him think I was yielding to him in any way. If that’s what he was looking for, he had another thing coming.
Instead, I stood more proudly, hands on my hips and arched my own brow waiting in response.
“Someone seems to think you may cause some trouble,” he said in a voice that would have brought me to my knees if I hadn’t been trying so hard to be determined and strong in his presence. 𝘋𝘢𝘮𝘯 𝘪𝘵, 𝘴𝘯𝘢𝘱 𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘪𝘵.
“What are you?” I asked, standing my ground.
He smiled slightly. “None of your concern. But I’m not here to harm you,” he said.
I snorted at the remark. He was certainly eyeing me up like a target. “Then what do you want?” I asked.
“I happened to stumble into this little mess and couldn’t help but watch. You just kicked three wolves’ asses on their own land. I’d call that disrupting the peace,” he said, tilting his head to the side and studying me.
“I’d call it a typical Monday,” I retorted, increasingly frustrated with his indignant behavior towards me when I didn’t know who he was.
His lips tugged into a more genuine smile, but only momentarily. “I’ll see you around then.”
And with that he was gone.

Yesss! I can’t wait for that one to come out! As if all of that wasn’t enough, I have a few more things in the works. Book 2 in the Alliance of Power Duology is on my work schedule as well. I’m hoping for a March 2019 release for that one, but will be keeping you posted on the specific date as soon as I have it. I’m also working on a time-traveler series that I have been waiting to jump in on for quite some time. There will be 2 – 3 books in that series released in 2019 as well!
As you can see, it is going to be a BUSY 2019, and I can’t wait to share it with you! Follow me on Social Media or here on the website where I’ll be announcing progress, news and more!

Now, onto what I’ll be focusing on and chatting with everyone about this week — the Brain to Books Cyber Convention & Book Expo … or B2BCYCON 2018!!
I will be taking part in this FREE, ALL ONLINE Book Convention and Expo this week! This is going to be SO much fun! This is like a virtual tradeshow of books — there is an expo where you can browse books of ALL genres, check out excerpts from various authors, watch as authors read excerpts from their books, see different interviews, panels, etc. There is also a Cover Wars Tournament and Character Tournament! It’s going to be an incredibly fun three days online, so you can enjoy all of it from the comfort of your home, in your pajamas!!
The Ariya Adams Trilogy will be a part of the Book Expo. I also have an expert from Protected that is part of the Just Read portion of the convention.
I would love your help for one part of the convention this week. My covers, designed by the incredible Cover Me Pretty, are part of the Cover Wars in the Paranormal Romance / Urban Fantasy category. Starting at 9 PM on April 5th, you can log on and start voting for your favorite covers. It’s set up as a bracket style, with different rounds of voting, culminating in a winner at the end of the convention! I’d love if you stop by and have a minute to vote. I can’t take much credit for my covers, Cover Me Pretty did all the concepts and work and while I may be biased, I LOVE what she created for me!
I’ll post the direct link, but you can access the main Cover Wars link, and then select the Paranormal Romance Category starting April 5th here: http://b2bcycon.com/cover-wars/
You can get in on all of the amazing content of B2BCYCON here: http://b2bcycon.com! Make sure you stop by starting April 6th!!
