What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger

A Taste Test February 23, 2018

It’s taste testing time.

No, sadly I don’t have virtual cookies to share, because that would be awesome. I’ve books.

I took the plunge and set up an Instafreebie account! Now you can download samples from The Girl Without Magic, Girl of Glass, and How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days!

It’s like a free sample of bourbon chicken at the mall. Come on, try a little. You know you’ll like it.

But in all seriousness, I’m really excited to try a new platform for reaching out to readers. Sometimes being an author is like screaming into the void, and any chance you have at connecting to other readers and even fellow authors is so amazing. It makes you feel less like a crazy person glued to your laptop and more like a human being telling stories as a way of contributing to society.

So please check out the links, grab your taste test, and if you have a moment, share with your friends.

After all, who doesn’t like free?

Return to the Siren’s Realm! January 9, 2018

Today is the day! I am thrilled to introduce The Girl Without Magic and Maggie Trent to the world!

The Girl Without Magic Cover

Death would have been easier, but the Siren wasn’t through with her.

Seventeen-year-old Maggie Trent fell out of a battle and into the Siren’s Realm, a land where secrets hide in the shadows and pleasure comes at a price Maggie is unwilling to pay.

The time for the Siren’s reckoning has come, sweeping away all she deems unworthy to live in her realm. Those without magic are hunted by the Siren. Those with magic are hunted by the Stricken. Fighting or hiding seem necessary to survive. But there is a different way.

Bertrand Wayland, unaging and unrelenting in his determination for Maggie to accept her fate, slips in and out through the stitches that bind the Siren’s Realm to other worlds, gaining magic and having glorious adventures. When Maggie follows Bertrand out of the Siren’s Realm, seeking an adventure of her own, she finds instead a world of magic on the eve of war. To save innocent lives Maggie risks her heart, her life, and her only chance of returning to the Siren’s Realm.

I am thrilled Curiosity Quills Press gave me the opportunity to return to the Siren’s Realm and give Maggie Trent’s story a chance to be told.

To celebrate the occasion, there is not only a Goodreads giveaway going on, but also a Rafflecopter!
