Azrael’s Light and Sunlight’s Kiss are in process of being pulled from ebook retailers. Very soon I’ll republish them under my imprint, Words by Night. They’ll get new covers (already in the works) and pricing that I feel is more appropriate for their word count.
Print copies already distributed to retailers can’t be pulled. I have no control over their pricing for Siren copies already in their inventory. But I will also do a print re-issue as well. I am tentatively planning on continuing the series and combining three stories into one print anthology ( as well as the seperate ebook editions.) As much as I love those characters and that world, I can pretty much guarantee that I will return there to write more Unearth stories.
But at this moment in time, Dark Horse has to be my focus. I’m behind and HATE feeling like I’ve let anyone down. And I know how hungry readers are for stories about characters they love. I have made significant progress on Noah’s story AND made cutbacks in both my schedule and my daughter’s. I think we were both trying so hard to do ALL the good things for her – dyslexia tutoring, music lessons and a myriad other things that we wore ourselves down to the point where we nearly canceled out any progress we were making.
As badly as I feel about that part, I reassure myself that we spent over a year trying, and trying damn hard to get my little dyslexic conundrum the help she needs. But we have lives to live too. Sooooo, I don’t know. Clearly we need to find a better balance.
Thank you for your patience. It truly means the world to me.
Edited to add! Because I’m a big dork! Dillon’s Gift! Same situation! It’s already been pulled, will get a facelift and reissue. So bear with me and as I get the new covers I’ll update with new links, prices and all the things!
I’ve looked at it countless times and couldn’t be happier with it. It fits Noah and Sylvie’s story so very well.
Pre-order links coming soon! For real! And again thank you so much for your patience. Between work, my daughter’s stint in the hospital, my fatigue, and a dozen other headaches I’m behind. (I know, unfortunately, that you’re not surprised.) I’m still peck-peck-pecking away, a little at a time. Most days I feel like an ant constructing a mountain, one piece of dirt at a time. I keep telling myself that in just few years, when my daughter is grown, I’ll miss these times, but, ugh, it’s hard to balance it all now.
*hugs* Love you all!
Yay! Believe it or not, I have things to announce. Good things!
1- Appearance – I’ll be signing at Lori Foster’s Annual Reader Author Get Together this coming Friday, June 8th in West Chester, OH. While I will be attending the entire weekend, I will be officially signing at the Friday Book Fair from 3-5pm which is open to the public. I will have plenty of print books and a few T-shirts available for sale with me as well.
2 – COVER REVEAL! – I have in my possession the cover for the fourth Dark Horse book, titled Sylvie’s Salvation. If you want to be among the first to see it, please make sure you’ve subscribed to my newsletter. I’ll send the newsletter out Friday morning with the first official reveal and will also have it with me at Lori Foster’s RAGT. Monday, I will share the cover here and everywhere else that I can possibly remember to post it.
3 – Pre-order links! They are coming, hopefully in time for the cover reveal. If not then, definitely ASAP and soon.
4 – Last and most importantly! Your patience. I cannot express how much I appreciate and value your patience. No bullsh*t, this past year has been rough on me personally, but I’m still pushing forward. So I need to send out a big thank you hug to those of you who haven’t given up on me. Truly.
No excuses. I’m running behind. Again. Go figure. I’ll keep the groveling short this time around. Too many balls in the air and not enough hands. Truly and I’m sorry.
I AM working on the fourth Dark Horse book and making progress. I’m trying to fight off some fatigue issues, but it is coming. I still have an entirely new series idea that won’t leave me alone and it’s in the works too. BUT Noah and Dark Horse are absolutely my priority.
I’m scaling back my travel and convention attendance this year. As much as I enjoy signings, they do take up a good bit of time. Like I said, I love them, but feel that time would be better spent behind the keyboard.
That being said, I do have one more appearance (that I booked last year) coming up on the 24th of February at the Behind the Mask Author Event. It’s in Nashville at the Opryland Hotel. If you’re in the area please feel free to stop by and say hi!
Thank you for your patience! *hugs*

Isn’t the new cover lovely! The moment I saw it, I had to have it.
Kelly’s been framed for diamond theft. Nothing is more important than clearing her name and keeping her job. There’s only one problem—the deadly snowstorm tearing through Kentucky.
Detective Jake Bowie comes home exhausted and prepared to sleep his vacation away. His dog, Jasper, has more important things in mind… like rescuing a half-frozen damsel in distress.
No stranger to puzzles, Jake senses there’s far more to Kelly’s story than she admits.
Can he see through the heat of their passion and figure out this sexy little mystery?
Winter Deception is part of the Dark Horse Allies series. It’s not a full-blown spinoff, really, but sometimes when I’m writing a secondary character will spark something. Sometimes that spark grows into something more. While those characters might not get a full-time role with Dark Horse Inc., they’re still important to me and worthy of their own stories.
Jake Bowie is the same Detective Bowie from Protecting Kate. When I wrote Kate and Trent’s story, I knew that Jake was dedicated to his job, tired, and a little lonely. I ached for him and knew he deserved his own happily-ever-after.
Winter Deception was released in the Snowy Knights anthology last winter but now it’s available on it’s own. It’s now available pretty much everywhere.
