Bloggers and Reviewers Wanted!

Wistful notes spoke of loneliness, as solitary as the final birdsong of autumn or the trill of summer_s last cicada before the wintry freeze.

Hey, folks!

Since I’ve got a lot of lovely stories in the pipeline (such as A Reflection of Ice and Of Tinkers and Technomancers), I figured I’d post around my ARC sign-up form! If you have a blog and like to read, or simply like to read and review, jot your name down on the form! That way, when new releases are on the horizon, you’ll get a free copy of my latest books before anyone else. All that I ask in return is you leave an honest review!

If you’re a fan of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, or young adult, I’ve got some stories in the works for you!

Updates in the Writing-Sphere

Here it is, folks, 2016. And like any year, I’ve got plans, grand plans. However, if you’re me, all of those plans get tangled up in your head way too fast, and then I write a thousand lists on a thousand scraps of paper. That doesn’t tell any of you jack though, so here’s what’s on the horizon for this year.

Audio Books:

Stolen Petals and An Airship Named Desire will be coming out in audio book format thanks to the talents of Sally Rouge! Both of these will be available for order before the end of the year!

Novels coming out:

Right now, the only guarantee is A Tale of Two Airships, the second book in the Take to the Skies series. It’s hella fun, and I can’t wait to share it with you all.

I’ll be trying my damndest on getting Scrying for Summer published, but of course that’ll all depend on how well Hunting for Spring does. If you want this sequel as badly as I do, please, please, please show your support for Hunting for Spring. Leave a review, buy a copy, tell your friends!

And then there’s the unfortunate news about Jupiter Gardens Press shutting down. On the sad side of things, it always sucks to see another press go. On the positive, I get my rights back on April 30th, and I’m hiring a cover artist to put a brand new cover on this thing for the re-release.

Currently Writing/Submitting:

Still trying to find a home for my dark fantasy novella, Reflections of Ice. To be fair, I’m also just still waiting on responses from submissions.

On the Iron Legacy front, I’m trying to find an agent, so cross your fingers and toes for me.

Apart from that, my plan is to finish writing Night Awakens and then launch into more Airship stuff. It might be another romance novella set in the same universe like Stolen Petals, or it might be the third book, that’ll depend on what I’m jiving with when the time comes. Either way, after that, of course I’ll begin working on the third book.

Questions, comments, suggestions? What’s everyone most excited for this year?

Books I Love: Dealing with Dragons

When I’m not writing, I make sure to spend some quality time with books–because my love of reading is what sparked my love of writing in the first place! Here are some of my favorite gems, originally posted on my review blog.

Dealing with Dragons (Cherries Jubilee is Making a Comeback)

by Patricia Wrede

This book is a fantastic young adult intro to writers like Terry Pratchett. The whole book pokes ridiculous fun at fantasy tropes all the meanwhile creating a fantastic world with memorable characters. Princess Cimorene is another female lead who was ahead of her time, sarcastic, rebellious and practical.

Books I Love: Ender’s Game

When I’m not writing, I make sure to spend some quality time with books–because my love of reading is what sparked my love of writing in the first place! Here are some of my favorite gems, originally posted on my review blog.

Ender’s Game (Children reach a new level of ankle-biting dangerous)

This is one of those books I can’t believe I never read when I was younger. Fascinating from the start, but with a life changing story and morals, Orson Scott Card outdid himself with Ender’s Game. It’s fascinating how he manages to blend youth and age seamlessly. While Ender starts at only six and when he becomes the commander, he’s only eleven, the person you follow is wise beyond his years and the juxtaposition between following an adult mentality versus the occasional childlike things he does or says is jarring. The futuristic world is so cleverly created and integrated into the story line and Ender’s story, as he’s manipulated, used on whim and eventually rises above it, is a timeless tale.
