Sing, Goddess! Release Day

I’m excited that readers can now read eleven exciting YA Greek myth retellings in Snowy Wings Publishing’s latest anthology! My own contribution, Darken the Night, is a retelling of the myth of Nyx.

From magical kingdoms under the sea to the halls of a modern high school, from Ancient Greece to the distant future, you will find romance, courage, fantasy, danger, and more.

Across the ages, the Muses call: SING, GODDESS!

Order on Amazon! Paperback and e-book are also available widely.

Phoenyx “Nyx” Douglas feels like a damsel trapped away. Suffering from a form of light sensitivity, she sleeps during the day, missing out on all the typical things the other teens in her town do. One night when her flighty father is out on a job, she falls for charmer Erebus Jones at first sight but then has a dream about a child she’s supposed to have with him in the future—and the peril that boy is in. With Ere’s help, she uncovers what it will take to save their future child: blackmailing the powerful town mayor and teaching him to fear her. The two teens are in over their heads as they uncover shocking secrets and cross the line between what’s right and what’s wrong—all in service of saving a child they can only have if their burgeoning relationship survives the danger they put themselves in.

A traumatized former faery champion. The beguiling former faery prince who manipulated her once before. A chance to correct the past mistakes that haunt her as the battle between blood, bloom, and water fades into memory.

Autumn Sheppard could once grow vines from her hands, but if she shared that with anyone, they’d think she was delusional. She’s spent the past ten years suppressing the nightmare of her actions during the battle between faeries, vampires, and mermaids, even as her older sister and step-sister moved on with their lives.

When Orin, the conniving faery prince, asks for her help, she wants to run, but he’s the only one who still has faith that she can make things right. Tasked with finding a fallen angel, Autumn discovers the hottest boy in school is exactly the guy she needs on her side. If only he could see past her geeky, outcast personality—and believe that magic is real.

The fifth and final book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series takes the story ten years into the future, when the former champion of bloom is the only hope for the resurrection of lost friends and foes alike. With the help of a fallen angel, she might succeed—even if her wish comes with fatal consequences.

Ballad of the Beanstalk Heads to Snowy Wings Publishing!

I’m excited to announce my YA fairy tale fantasy book, Ballad of the Beanstalk, will now be published with Snowy Wings Publishing! This book is available widely.

A Library Journal Self-e Selection.

As her fingers move across the strings of her family’s heirloom harp, sixteen-year-old Clarion can forget. She doesn’t dwell on the recent passing of her beloved father or the fact that her mother has just sold everything they owned, including that very same instrument that gives Clarion life. She doesn’t think about how her friends treat her like a feeble, brittle thing to be protected. She doesn’t worry about how to tell the elegant Elena, her best friend and first love, that she doesn’t want to be her sweetheart anymore. She becomes the melody and loses herself in the song.

When Mack, a lord’s dashing young son, rides into town so his father and Elena’s can arrange a marriage between the two youth, Clarion finds herself falling in love with a boy for the first time. Drawn to Clarion’s music, Mack puts Clarion and Elena’s relationship to the test, but he soon vanishes by climbing up a giant beanstalk that only Clarion has seen. When even the town witch won’t help, Clarion is determined to rescue Mack herself and prove once and for all that she doesn’t need protecting. But while she fancied herself a savior, she couldn’t have imagined the enormous world of danger that awaits her in the kingdom of the clouds.

A prequel to the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk that reveals the true story behind the magical singing harp.

Fans of Rosamund Hodge, Marissa Meyer, Jenni James, and Sarah J. Maas will enjoy this original faerie tale retelling fantasy in the vein of stories like Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and The Little Mermaid.

The Never Veil Trilogy Heads to Snowy Wings Publishing!

I’m excited to announce my romantic YA fairy tale fantasy trilogy, The Never Veil, will now be published with Snowy Wings Publishing! The e-books are exclusive to Amazon, though the paperbacks are available widely. You can save some money on the e-book versions by purchasing the box set or the paperbacks by purchasing the giant three-in-one paperback of the complete series!

Nobody’s Goddess: Winner of The Romance Reviews’ Summer 2016 Readers’ Choice Award in Young Adult Romance. A novel readers are calling “spectacular and heartbreaking.”

In a village of masked men, each man is compelled to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. A man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.

Seventeen-year-old Noll’s childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her. She is in fact the goddess of the mysterious lord of the village, a man who refuses to let Noll have her right as a woman to spurn him.

Thus begins a dangerous game between the choice of woman and the magic of man. The stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death—and neither Noll nor the veiled lord is willing to lose.

Fans of Tamlin in A Court of Thorns and Roses, Rhys in A Court of Mist and Fury, the Darkling in the Grisha Trilogy’s Shadow and Bone, and Jareth in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth will devour this Beauty and the Beast-style romantic adventure.

I’ve loved working with this publisher the past few years and they offer a great variety of MG and YA reads. These books are available widely and you can save some money on the e-book versions by purchasing the box set.

Terror. Callousness. Denial. Rebellion. How the four teenage children of leaders in the duchy and the neighboring empire of Hanaobi choose to adapt to their nefarious parents’ whims is a matter of survival.

Soldier Rohesia, the pitiless daughter of the ruthless duke. Thief Fastello, the compassionate son of the “king” of the raiding nomads. Orphan Cateline, the pious, myopic follower of the austere leader of her religion. Royal heir Kojiro, the hypersensitive son of the bloodthirsty Hanaobian empress.

VINES & FLORETS Blurb and Cover Reveal!

Today’s the cover reveal for VINES & FLORETS, the fifth and final book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series that I hope to have out in early 2021!

A traumatized former faery champion. The beguiling former faery prince who manipulated her once before. A chance to correct the past mistakes that haunt her, as the battle between blood, bloom, and water fades into memory.

Autumn Sheppard could once shoot vines from her hands and command people into doing what she said—but if she shared that with anyone, no one would believe her. She’s spent the past ten years suppressing the nightmare of her actions during the battle between faeries, vampires, and mermaids, even as her older sister and step-sister moved on with their lives, content with leaving all the magic behind them.

When Orin, the conniving faery prince who once took advantage of her, asks for her help, she wants to run—but he’s the only one who still believes in her ability to make things right. Tasked with finding a fallen angel, Autumn is shocked to discover the hottest boy in school is exactly the guy she needs on her side. If only he could see past her geeky, outcast personality—and believe her head’s not in the clouds when she tells him what he truly is.

The fifth and final book in the Blood, Bloom, & Water series takes the story ten years into the future, when the former champion of bloom is the only hope for the resurrection of friends and foes alike lost in the definitive battle. With the help of a fallen angel, she might succeed—even if her actions come with dire consequences that cannot be undone.
