The Second Annual Zyanniversary!

Hi, guys! I can't believe it's been two years since I released Martinis with the Devil, but here we are. I'm doing another week long Zyanniversary, with a big announcement on Wednesday and TWO giveaways!

The first giveaway is simple: I'll be giving away five e-copies of the complete Zyan Star series. Three full-length novels (Martinis with the Devil, Whiskey & Angelfire, and Vengeance & Vermouth), and two novelettes (Black Magic & Mojitos and Sorcery & Sidecars). You don't have to do anything (I will assume you popped through via my Facebook page), though you get more points if you spread the word on Twitter!

The second giveaway is a $15 Amazon card for book reviewers. I'd like to get more reviews for the Zyan books on Amazon. There are lots of reviews on Goodreads, but not so many on Amazon, and the higher the number of reviews a book has on Amazon, the more it appears to potential new readers. Last year I paid it forward by giving away unlimited copies of all the Zyan books (yep, I totally did), so this year me and Zy are asking you guys to share the love. So, if you posted a review on Goodreads but not Amazon, copy and paste that baby, send me a screenshot at, enter the Rafflecopter below, and you're good to go! Or, if you've read the books but not yet posted a review, give it a go and you may get hooked up with a gift card. Please no fake reviews! I only want honest reviews from my readers.

Here's a link to my Amazon author page where you can find all the books. I'll post all the winners on Sunday the 15th!

Thanks for stopping by for the party!

The Importance of Art

On Saturday my son and I participated in the local March For Our Lives, to support the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas kids up in D.C. since we couldn't make it up there. It was a great experience, and these kids are so amazing. I'm just floored by them, and by this movement. 

Years ago when The Hunger Games came out, and then all the other dystopians about evil government and fighting back, people kept saying we were raising our kids to be revolutionists. Well, hell yeah we did. And it's never been more timely than now. They are going to change things. What's more, and sort of weird and wonderful, is that Jennifer Lawrence, who played Katniss in the Hunger Games movie, is taking a year off of acting to travel the country and speak to kids and encourage this movement against corrupt politicians. The NRA so clearly has most of them in their pocket, and that has to change. She's truly the Mockingjay, and so are these kids.

There are those that challenge the need for art in society, or say that it isn't necessary. Well, art changes things, and it changes people. It plants seeds. The dystopian stories that swept society helped pave the way for what's happening now. And that's pretty damn important if you ask me.

So, whatever your thoughts on all that's going on in the world today, remember to make good art. Those of you that love Neil Gaiman like I do will recognize that quote. Make good art. Put your beauty out into the world. I'm not saying you have to try to send a message (and often books that do are too obvious about it), but just by being YOU and putting YOUR art into the world, you make it a better place. And you never know what will come of it down the road.

Hunted: A Little Red Riding Hood Retelling

I'm sharing this for a friend... a spicy redo of the classic Little Red Riding Hood :) Looks awesome!


Little Red Riding Hood. Three Big Bad Wolves. A Poisonous Scheme.

Scarlet, a healer, lives nestled in the forest surrounded by humans on one side and wolves on the other. But when a rogue wolf attacks her, she's rescued by another pack and taken deep into their den to perform her healing magic on an injured Alpha.

The wolves in the forest are under threat from a mysterious affliction, and Scarlet is the only hope they have left. Faced with a mixed pack of threatened shifters, Scarlet must use her wits and magic to survive and unravel the strange affliction now affecting the wolves... All while trying to navigate an overpowering attraction to not just one, but three of the Alphas.

Witches, wolves, magic and love intertwine in an exciting mystery that finds its own, unique Happily Ever After.

Happy New Year!

Ah, New Year's Eve. I always contemplate lots of things and like to look back on the year ending and look forward to the year ahead. I had a great riding lesson on my horse today so that was a nice way to wrap up the year. I've also finished the outline for Huntress at War, the third and final book in the Timekeeper's War series.
2017 was a good year for books, much less busy than 2016, but still robust. I hosted my first Zyanniversary in April, for all you Zyan fans. Huntress Found was nominated for a Rone Indie Book award. My agent and I went on submission for my YA fantasy Of Blood, Earth, and Magic (and the verdict is still out on that). And of course, I released Huntress Lost and that's off to a great start.
2018 will hopefully hold a book deal for OBE&M, and I'll be releasing Huntress at War mid-year or so. Towards the end of the year I may even release the 4th Zyan book, but we'll see how those first two things play out.
What are your thoughts on ending 2017 and beginning 2018?
