Vengeance from Ashes (expanded edition) available for pre-order

The title pretty much says it all. Vengeance from Ashes (expanded edition) is now available for pre-order. The print version will be available very shortly. The official release date for the e-book is October 17th. This version of the book contains approximately 20k words of additional content. It is, in many ways, the “director’s cut” of the book. I will be removing the original version of the book from Amazon over the […]

Nocturnal Rebellion is available for pre-order

Whew, finally! Nocturnal Rebellion is now available for pre-order. All she wanted was a simple murder case, one uncomplicated by shapeshifters or interfering IAB investigators. What she got instead was much, much more. Now three cops are dead and Mac’s world will never be the same again. It is up to her to find the culprits and bring them to justice. But what justice? That of cops and attorneys and criminal courts […]

Of Mondays and time changes and pre-orders and more

I want to go on the record here and now that I hate the time change. I understand, sort of, why the government instituted it back oh so many years ago. But now? Sorry. I don’t like it. Let’s choose a time and stick with it. I know that I’m going to be dragging the rest of the week as I adjust to the new time and I feel for all the […]

Countdown – 6 Days

The edits are done. Input from beta readers and editor have been reviewed and incorporated.  Dagger of Elanna (Sword of the Gods Book 2) has been converted into ePUB and one last read-through has begun. Later today, I will upload the final version in preparation of release on the 15th. It is different reading the book on a tablet in e-book format than looking at it on the screen as a Word doc. […]

It’s almost here

After a number of fits and starts and a couple of delays, Dagger of Elanna (Sword of the Gods Book 2) is almost here. I am looking at the print outs this morning, making one last check for problems before uploading the final publication file. As you can see by the link, it is available for pre-order and the release date, set in stone, is the 15th. This has been a fun book […]

A pre-order and something new

Like Punxsutawny Phil, the writer slowly sticks her head out of her burrow and looks around. Unlike the thrice-damned ground hog who foretold of more winter to come before hiding back inside his hole, I welcome the sun. The last two months have been interesting, in the not-so-fun sort of way. But I have seen the light at the end of a tunnel — note, I don’t say “the tunnel” because I […]

Have Some Free Promo

(This post originally appeared at According to Hoyt. I’m reblogging it here not only because I know and highly recommend most of the authors listed but also because it has a link to — wait for it — Dagger of Elanna (Sword of the Gods Book 2). Yes, it is finally live for pre-order on Amazon.) Once more unto the breach comes the promo post! Reports of my demise may have been […]

Nocturnal Challenge – Evolution of a Series

Back when I wrote Nocturnal Origins (Nocturnal Lives Book 1), I didn’t do it as the beginning of a series. In fact, that was the last thing I meant to do. It wasn’t a genre I usually wrote in. I was bucking the trend in how it was written. I figured it would be a one-off and I would move on. More than that, I had never considered doing a series. What […]

An update, a reminder and a link or two

NaNoWriMo is underway and, as usual, I’m late getting started. Between life, dealing with car and home repairs and finishing up the edits on Duty from Ashes (Honor and Duty Book 2), there hasn’t been much time to write. Yes, I have snuck in a few minutes here and there, but not nearly enough. So, now it is time to buckle down and get with the program because another one of the […]

Duty from Ashes Pre-Order

There are many things I like about what Amazon has done for indie authors. One of my most favorite additions to their KDP program is the ability to list our titles for pre-order. As of a few minutes ago, Duty from Ashes (Honor and Duty Book 2) is now available for pre-order. It will be available for download November 21st. Duty calls. Honor demands action. Major Ashlyn Shaw has survived false accusations […]
