What story I’m working on: On Forged Decisions, I hit 5k, though it’s been a slow moving start. While I wanted to forge ahead on The Airship Also Rises, I keep stalling out on that project, so I decided to do a fun secret side-thing with another author and actually knocked out 3k with that one.
What I’m editing/marketing: Ho-boy do I have a lot going on! So, I got the major crits in on my Future King story, which means it’s time to roll up my sleeves and work some editing magic. And I submitted Cupid’s Cafe to After Glows last week and as of yesterday, Captured Memories now has a home! Which means even after Waking for Winter comes out, I’ll have another story launching this year. Speaking of Waking for Winter, I hope you’re as excited as I am. This story is dear to me, and marks the major accomplishment of my first series coming to a close!

Line of the week:
“A mating ceremony? That’s the worst of all,” Navi grumbled back.
Jess rolled her eyes. “Yes, yes, we know. You hate love. Anger, anger, roar.”
Navi snorted into her pillow. Not like she could hide anything from Jess—with the way they’d shared a room most of their lives, the woman was essentially her sister. Every time they officiated a mating ceremony, the nausea rolled through. Not because she hated love, but because she knew the couple had something she would never get. Jess put on a laid-back front, but Navi had watched her try and fail to keep several long distance relationships. When you constantly jumped from city to city, you got the clothes on your back and your Tribe—nothing else.
Rising for Autumn is OUT! Get your copy here!!!
Crisis and danger have become second nature for Alanna Carrington. After all, as the boss of the Philadelphia Coven, she’s responsible for upholding the laws amongst the supernatural. Which means when the Order of the Serpent rears its ugly head, this time with the most powerful necromancer this city’s ever seen, she’s the one person who can keep Philly safe. Ex-Order djinn and now ally, Samuel Karim, happens to be the best-suited guy to help. Except he’s also the first man who’s stoked her interest in far too long, and ever since she commandeered the lamp he’s tethered to for safekeeping, he also hates her guts.
As the Order gathers the necromancers of her city and sparks a dangerous alliance, she finds herself working with Samuel Karim more and more. Hatred turns to passion, and when he exhibits a strength and compassion that breaks through her ironclad defenses, she finds herself falling deeper despite the complications between them. Yet with her city under siege and their lives on the line, the sharp desire between them erupts into the temptation to break their own rules, before the Order of the Serpent robs them of the chance permanently.
Loose Id will be releasing Scrying for Summer this year! YEEEEEE!!!!!!!
I’m pretty damn joyful about this, not only because it’ll be my first sequel published, but also because I fucking love this story. Jev and Liam’s tale gripped me in a fierce and passionate way and they were an absolute joy to write.

Want to know what it’s about?
Jev was looking for an adventure, however she wanted the usual variety of stomping out nasty fae in the city as an enforcer of the Philly Coven. Instead, handsome as sin Liam O’Reilly shows up on her doorstep dropping news of the worst organization of fae they’d dealt with on the rise again. Except, he’s a traitor, an asshole, and the absolute last person she wants to work with.
However, the longer they work together, the more the fire between them burns, turning from rage and irritation into something primal. And as she gets to know the real Liam O’Reilly behind the charming smiles and sexy lines, he becomes so much deadlier. Because the protective, self-sacrificing man underneath his facade is just the sort she could fall for.
