My Author's Video

It's good to have friends. And although not necessary, it's very cool to have friends that buy my books or, in this case, help me sell them.

My good friend Earl Harris is a film maker extraordinaire, and out of the goodness of his heart made me an author's video. I told him it was his job to keep me from making an idiot of myself. He succeeded... and then some. I know this because, at least twice, I exploded into giggles when asked a question, I typed silly stuff on my computer when I didn't realize that was being filmed, and once I almost fell out of my chair. Nary a faux pas remains, not because I'm so great but because Earl is.   

Here it is...and also the links to Earl's company and personal media if you ever need an author's video, or anything else filmed.

A Fan

As a writer, you don't get much feedback other than yes we want your book, no we don't want your book, yes we want it and here's everything you need to fix. :-) But sometimes you get a sweet letter, or in this case, a couple of sweet photos. To say these day my day is the understatement of the year.

New Book!

My new book, Dance of the Phoenix, published by Worldcastle Publishing, is now available on Amazon! It's a sequel to The Reckoning, although the protagonist isn't the same person. Lillith is in it, though. Blurb below, you can get my book on Amazon.

Q'ella might appear to lead a glamorous life: her appearance is human standard perfect and unlike many fairy creatures, her kind is admired and sought after. Meet Que, short for Q’ella; a former royal forest fey, now the owner of a dance studio post-Reckoning, the day when all fairy creatures became visible to humans. Que doesn't like humans all that much, but does her best to get along in a world she’s rather have no part of. But involved she becomes when a handsome new dance recruit draws her into realms of magic outside her own, and in the process she realizes her heart and mind have been locked tighter than she ever knew…or wanted.

New Book!

My book, The Prodigy, has been signed by Zharmae! The write up about it was really nice. I've had much fun working with the editor, Sara Bangs. She is talented, communicates, and is encouraging...what more could you want? Not sure of the exact release date but I'll keep you posted.

Gary's New Book

My husband Gary just had a book published!!! It's titled Until Death Do Us Part, and it's a sequel to his first Mel book. If possible, I like this one even better.  :-)

Blurb and link below:

Melody "Mel" Rush is an average thirty something, if you consider talking with the dead and having worked as The Grim Reaper's personal private eye.

Four years ago Mel took on Death's case, retrieving an artifact to save reality from a rebellion of one of its principle managers, Time itself. She came out of the deal having her name erased from Death's roles and ageless, but even more connected to a supernatural world most normal people don't even know exists.
It's this attunement with the paranormal that lets Mel see a shadow lurking at the window of an abandoned house. Seeing this new horror drags her into a web of love, murder, and greed that will show her the world is bigger and stranger than she dared imagine.

Happy New Year

Haven't been posting much lately...no excuse really, just haven't, but I have re-committed to my blog.

Nothing much going on with my writing...published Chimera, and I will have a sequel coming out to The Reckoning sometime in 2014. I guess that's pretty good, what I mean by no progress is my luck with big publishers. :-)

Been reading Jane Yolan recently. She is, in my opinion, the BEST re-teller of fairy tales. That's not all she does, mind you, but she is an expert on staying true to the original story, yet her stories are always sooooo different and wonderful. My new faves are The Thirteenth Fey, obvious which fairy tale this is but still fab, and Summer Snow, which isn't at first. I wasn't even sure it WAS a retelling. But when I realized which one it was...OMG, SO powerful.
