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.

What story I’m working on: Waking for Winter for NaNoWriMo! WOOOO! I’m in the final sector of this final book of the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles!
What I’m editing/marketing: Still editing Chasing Fate. It’s shaping up to probably be my best manuscript, hands down.
Line of the week:
It would be so easy to run the other way and keep running, claiming solace in Dante’s arms. However, that’s one of the reasons she’d stayed away the first time she disappeared from his life. Because Cami wanted to honor her mother by becoming a ferociously strong woman, just like her. One willing to fight for what was important to her, no matter the cost. Here and now, this is where she drew her line in the sand, where she separated herself from the weak and the strong.

What story I’m working on: Waking for Winter
What I’m editing/marketing: Just finished the first pass on the Chasing Fate Rewrite! From here, it’ll go to my husband for critiques so I can get the changes up to date, and then out to beta readers! And then I’ll be cleaning this ol’ gal up for submissions, hopefully before the end of the year!
Line of the week:
Either way, even a block away, the insidious crawl of the Caoranach’s presence weighted the air, her mark like the toxic sludge that factory towers piped into the skies.

What story I’m working on: Rising for Autumn (Slow because of edits on A Tale of Two Airships)
What I’m editing/marketing: Night Awakens, but mostly A Tale of Two Airships, because I got my first round of edits in!
Line of the week:
“One down,” Sam announced himself before she whirled around to check. “Looks like you found more beasties to play with?”
“What can I say?” she lifted the sachet and prepared to throw. “Monsters just love me.”
Next in the tea blends is By the Sea! Delicious easy breezy tea to enjoy while reading the easy breezy paranormal romance!
A tart blend of Earl Grey, this one combines raspberries and orange peel! Airship was a breezy adventure, and I wanted to represent that, while still catering to the steampunk side of the story with some traditional Earl Grey tea. Coming soon…more novel inspired teas!
So, the way things are progressing now, it looks like I’ll have two new works out this year! One from Decadent Publishing and the other via Jupiter Gardens Press! Stay tuned as more info comes out!
