What I’ve Read Lately

In the last few weeks I’ve reread Son of No One by Sherrilyn Kenyon in preparation for Dragonbane and I’ve read Magic Breaks before Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews came out and I’ve gotta tell you I think I hyped myself up to the point where while reading the new releases I was expecting something different than what was given. Don’t get me wrong the Dark Hunter series and Kate Daniels are one of my all time favorite series but both of these books were a solid 3 for me. That’s Dragonbane and Magic Shifts. Magic Shifts read as more of a transition book for the new direction the story arc would be heading since technically Magic Breaks could have been done in a way to end the series. While the rise of the dragons first book also seemed like a way to introduce this newest story arc as well. I’ll admit although I have a great love for myths I’m beginning to become extremely confused from all the mythos surrounding the Dark Hunter world. It’s just so much and it’s like I need a cheat sheet the further we get into it. All these different destinies and end of the world prophecies are starting to make my head hurt. Now I will be reading the next books in these series but am I as excited as I used to be? Will I be pre-ordering as soon as the button to do so becomes available? No to both questions. It could also stem from my mild reader’s funk that I’ve been having but I did catch up on Sherrilyn’s The League series and I gotta say I’m super pumped for Fain’s story. Although I’m a bit confused from the past to present thing and who’s related to who, it’s a much simpler storyline to follow than the Dark Hunters at the moment. There is a war and only one side is going to be able to win. Whether that side is the League or the Sentella that’s still yet to be determined. But each side is gunning for the other with everything they have and then some.

As an avid Paranormal/Urban Fantasy lover, I’m surprised at how much I enjoy the Sci Fi genre as well but it’s probably because I view it as a sort of futuristic paranormal world with an added bonus of alien. I’m also a huge Mercy Thompson, Pride Series, BDB, Alpha and Omega, IAD, and just about anything else paranormal and urban fantasy there is fan. I’m eagerly awaiting the next installments in all of these series and probably have them all either on my wishlist or preordered. So  what are some of your favorites and what did you think of the latest installments of Dark Hunters and Kate Daniels?

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! I will be doing an insider’s guide of all things Dark Indiscretions…I have been working on it for the last year…updating it every time a new book comes outs…it will have all kinds of cool stuff…timelines, family trees, exclusive content and conversations, deleted scenes, characters/species charts…you name it, it will be in there…it will be available in ebook and exclusively in Hardback for signings…I may do paperback as well but not sure yet.

It’s The Little Things

Well, well, well…I finally freaking did it. What’s it, you ask? It is finish my BA for Psychology after 10 years…that’s what IT is!! To say I’m excited would be an understatement. I am just so freaking stoked. Not only will I now have BA but I also have an AA in Logistics from my 8 years being the the United States Air Force. I am in a very different place from where I was 10, 8, or even 1 year ago. I have 3 works published with hopefully 5 more added to that number before this year is out. I’ve met some wonderful and not so wonderful people on this author journey that I have embarked on. I have my first signing coming up with Boston Comic Con, I’ve made an official author website, I’m getting the hang of the whole social media thing (well some days at least), and most importantly I’m having fun. I will also be attending Authors In The City (AITC) next year in March…the tickets are already on sale. Check out the pinned post for details on that. Also if you are interested in being apart of my street team just click here.

For all you Facebook fans I have an amazing giveaway going on here, (just look out for the pinned post) and I’m planning a huge multi author 4th of July giveaway here. So make sure you check back to enter.

For anyone interested I’m accepting participants in my Double Blog Tour/Cover Reveal here, there are review opportunities for the first two books in my Dark Indiscretions Series, as well as chances to interview me.

I’m currently working on I guess what you would call a spin off or companion novellas to my Dark Indiscretions Series which will be called The Dark Indiscretions Chronicles, detailing more intimately certain characters that aren’t detailed as much as I would have wanted in the Dark Indiscretions Series. I also have 6 books planned in a Sci-Fi, Steampunk, Fantasy type world that I want to start working on at the beginning of the year. I’m really excited about it and will even be possibly using a friend as the model on the covers.

I have so many book ideas that it’s become crazy to keep them all separate. I’ve been using Scrivener, which I love! The layout and organization is amazing. It’s especially helpful since I want to release an Insider’s Guide once the Dark Indiscretions Series is complete. Well that’s enough of my ramblings for today! Happy Sunday and for all the True Blood fans, I hope tonight’s episode is better than the last!
