Title: Rumspringa

Author: Shakuita Johnson

Genre: Paranormal

Cover Artist: WillowRaven

Release Date: June 17, 2015

Synopsis

What would you do for love? Would you sit by and let it pass you by, or would you grab onto it no matter the cost? Would you break the rules and leave everyone else behind so guarantee your own happiness?

Sy Cole wants what all sixteen-year-old girls in her coven want. To master one of the four elements, move out of her parents’ home, and into her new one with her chosen husband. It seemed all that was within her grasp, when it was brutally snatched away.

Instead of sitting by and letting her life be dictated, she acted. When faced with having to choose family over love, she chose love. She took control of her life and went on a journey that would turn all she knew and was always told upside down.

On the run and looking over her shoulder Sy, along with her love Jamie, look for the only people she believes can help them now…her brothers.

Join Sy as she undergoes the ceremony that changes her life forever. Whether it’s for good or bad is still to be determined.

Projects I’m Working On

Well with summer fast approaching I figured I’d take a few minutes to update you all on what projects I will be and I’m  working on…so freaking many that’s what! LOL, but seriously I’ll give you guys a rundown of the projects I’m working on in the next few months to a year…yes I have things planned that far out in advance…I mean I have 4 books signings for next year lined up already. And just because they are next year doesn’t mean I can slack off with preparations. Those babies will be here before you know it! So in typical OCD behavior for me…I’m going to do this in list format 🙂

  •  Exclusive member ONLY content – I will be posting open discussions about Dark Indiscretions past, present, and future…member only giveaways and content will be posted in this part of the blog. You will need to have a log in to access this information. Sometimes there might be spoilers so if you haven’t started the series you are going to want to stay away from this part of the site.

 

  • The last three books in Dark Indiscretions – Rumspringa will be releasing July 3rd 2015 and I will be releasing the last two book Triple Cursed and Past Hunted by Spring 2016…I hope to get Triple Cursed out before this year is over around November/December and then I will be starting on Pasted Hunted once Triple Cursed is done and I plan to have it to you all before April/May 2016…but as it will be the last in the series I don’t want to rush it as I want things wrapped up. I do no have an other book directly linked to this series arc planned but I hope to do Dark Morsels which I will talk about in a bit…stay tuned!

Dark Indiscretions

 

  • Callisto Carvanis: And A Legacy Was Born – this is the first in the spin-off of Dark Indiscretions that gives a bit more insight into certain characters that I couldn’t go fully into during Dark Indiscretions Series as there wasn’t a good place to add it. It will be a sort of companion read along side Dark Indiscretions…you can read Callisto without having read Dark Indiscretions but you are going to want to read Dark Indiscretions once you dive into Callisto if that makes sense. She will be releasing September 5, 2105.

Callisto Carvanis

Pre Order – Amazon special $1.99 until July 1st, 2015 then will be $3.99

  • Dark Indiscretions Insider’s Guide – That’s right peeps!

***UPDATES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS***

Hello everyone! I know I’ve rarely been on but with school and work I barely have time to sleep let alone post a lot but that should be changing in the next two weeks as I will only be going to school so that will give me more time to not only focus more on my homework but other things as well…

I am only about 10 chapters away from finishing And So She Waited’s first draft YAY! I hope to be able to giveaway some ARCs mid Oct or last week of Oct. around Halloween week

Once I finish And So She Waited I will be working on the next Dark Indiscretions book Seer Destined. I can’t wait to get back into my world. I will also be working on Callisto while writing Seer Destined but my focus will mostly be on Seer Destined hoping to have it out early 2015 as the story is getting deeper and I will need time to properly tie things together.

I have the last cover for the last book in the Dark Indiscretions Series done.

past_hunted_small

I goal is to have the entire Dark Indiscretions Series done by Dec. 2015 so that means I may be silent a lot as I’m working on the series while also attending school.

My book signing is coming up Oct. 4th and if you are in the NE area and haven’t bought your ticket yet you can do so here:http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/763462
You will also be able to get them at the door but I would recommend buying them now so you don’t have to wait I hope to have a few goody bags for the first few people who come to my table and are fans…more on that as it gets closer.

If you’ve read any of my books PLEASE consider leaving a review. It would mean a lot. Also if you haven’t started Dark Indiscretions yet book 1 is only 99 pennies and sold pretty much everywhere on ebook now besides Google books…
