Into Elurien Release Party (Facebook)

June 15, 2016 5-9 PM EDT

Join us for giveaways, discussions, and loads of fun!

The party got started early this morning due to an unfortunate glitch (I guess) that caused Facebook to change the time without notifying me. The good news is that it’s fixed, we’re back on track for our usual evening celebration (at least in my time zone), and we already have a few events posted with chances to win signed paperback copies of the book!

And Into Elurien is live on all retailers. Click here for links.

Hope to see you at the party!

Into Elurien Chapter Reveal and Update

Hey, everyone!

I’m so excited to announce that the first two chapters of Into Elurien are available on my blog for anyone who would like to give them a read. They’re a little bit preview, a little bit tease, and a little taste of the flavour of this New Adult fairy tale. Click here.

Everything is all set to go on the 15th. I can’t wait to share this gorgeous little story with you! It’s a little bit different from the Bound trilogy. New world, new characters, and a slightly more grown-up story. But it’s still got everything you expect from me, and advance review copy readers are loving it so far.

Big thanks to everyone who has expressed interest and excitement in the story. Less than a week to go! I hope you’ll all join me on Facebook for the release party on June 15. It’s going to be a blast. Giveaways, author Q&A, and lots of fun discussions and challenges. See you there!

Skeleton Key Book Series

One Skeleton Key. Endless Adventures.

https://skeletonkeybookseries.com

When Hazel Walsh discovers a strange key in the attic of the Old Brook Inn, she doesn’t imagine the door it unlocks will lead anywhere special. Though superstitious, she’s never bought into the local stories of fairies, ghosts, and demons. But when she opens the door, she discovers just how wrong she was.

Hazel is dropped into a world in the midst of a revoloution, where monsters have overthrown the humans who once enslaved them. All of the humans, that is, except for Verelle, the cruel sorceress who vanished at the moment of Hazel’s arrival. If Hazel wants any chance of surviving and making it back to her own world, she’ll have to join forces with the amalgus Zinian—horned, winged, and monstrously attractive—to unravel the mystery of Verelle’s disappearance. If they can’t, the fates of two worlds will be at stake.

COVER REVEAL: INTO ELURIEN

(cross-posted from Disregard the Prologue)

Here we go.

I can’t even explain how excited I am about this book. What started as a “Yeah, I could squeeze a shorter project into my schedule” became something I’m madly in love with. These characters, this world, the ideas I got to play with and the story that took shape as I wrote it… It’s just so much more than I ever expected it to be when I took it on as a fun challenge. One of my favourite things I’ve ever written.

Here’s the cover copy again, for anyone who missed it:

Out of plans and out of luck…

Hazel Walsh left her island town three years ago, determined to never to return. But a series of missteps and misfortunes have left her homeless, heartbroken, and with no option but to return and take a job she doesn’t want in a place she fears will strangle her.

On her way, she stops for the night at the Old Brook Inn. It’s a place of local myth and legend—things that Hazel hasn’t believed in since she was a child. When she finds a strange key in the attic and tries it in a locked door, she suddenly wishes she’d paid more attention to the fantasy stories she once scoffed at.

She’s thrown into a world in the midst of revolution, where monsters have overthrown the humans who once enslaved them. All of them, that is, except Verelle, the cruel sorceress queen who vanished at the moment of Hazel’s arrival. If Hazel wants to have any chance of surviving and making it back to her own world, she’ll have to join forces with the amalgus Zinian—horned, winged, mysterious, and monstrously attractive—to unravel the mystery of Verelle’s disappearance. If they can’t, the fates of two worlds may be at stake.

This one will be available for pre-order May 15 and releases June 15, 2016. You can add it to your Goodreads TBR now via this link.

Ready? Here you go.

Into Elurien cover 1800x

 

Whew.

Big thanks to Jennifer at JM Rising Horse Creations, who did such an amazing job with this gorgeous cover! Not only that, she’s doing ALL of the covers for the Skeleton Key series. You can check them out here.

What is the Skeleton Key series? It’s a series of books, all by different authors, all standalone fantasy romance novellas with a happily ever after guaranteed, featuring a range story types, sub-genres, worlds, characters, and heat levels. It looks like we’ve got fae, dragons, shifters, warrior queens, and of course monsters (*happy dance*). It’s going to be amazing. I’m really excited about this series, and I’ll have more information for you as we get closer to release day.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please feel free to share this post. ^_^

Into Elurien cover reveal coming April 15 (and a special bonus for newsletter subscribers!)

I’ve been going NUTS waiting to talk about this project. It’s always hard to know when it’s too soon. Should everything wait until pre-orders are up? Does anyone care before then?

Well, I can’t wait. I’m incredibly excited about this new adult fantasy romance project. Going full Romance was a bit of a challenge for me, but the characters and plot really came together beautifully in a story that packs in as much adventure as I could fit in the 50K word limit required by the series. Honestly, my only regret with this story is that it had to be a standalone, because I LOVE it. Monsters, magic, a new world, a heroine with anxiety and acne, romance that’s a little hotter than what I’ve played with in the past… what’s not to be excited about?

Anyway, we’re going to do the cover reveal on April 15, one month before Into Elurien and the rest of the books in the Skeleton Key series go up for pre-order. Join me here, or for extra fun, at my blog.

Now, newsletter subscribers have already seen the cover, so that’s old news for them. But because they’re so special, they’re going to get a fantastic bonus: an early introduction to a character I’m more than a little in love with. He’s a bit of a monster, but I think you’ll adore him, too. If you’re not a newsletter subscriber yet (and why not? It’s so much fun!), you should definitely sign up before Friday the 15th using the links at the top of this page. This will be a one-time mailing. If you miss it, you’ll have to wait until the rest of the world meets him some time in May.

Or June, if I decide to be mean and not reveal him before the book comes out. 🙂

Hope to see you there!

And the (non-finalized) cover copy.

Out of plans and out of luck…

Hazel Walsh left her island town three years ago, determined to never to return. But a series of missteps and misfortunes have left her homeless, heartbroken, and with no option but to return and take a job she doesn’t want in a place she fears will strangle her.

On her way, she stops for the night at the Old Brook Inn. It’s a place of local myth and legend—things that Hazel hasn’t believed in since she was a child. When she finds a strange key in the attic and tries it in a locked door, she suddenly wishes she’d paid more attention to the fantasy stories she once scoffed at.

She’s thrown into a world in the midst of revolution, where monsters have overthrown the humans who once enslaved them. All except their greatest enemy, Verelle, the cruel sorceress queen who disappeared at the moment of Hazel’s arrival. If Hazel wants to have any chance of making it home, she’ll have to join forces with the amalgus Zinian—horned, winged, mysterious, and undeniably attractive—to unravel the mystery of Verelle’s disappearance and bring peace to a war-ravaged land.
