My favorite time of year is here! And just because I’m so excited, here’s an awesome pic I found on my Pinterest feed. And yes, that’s my home state of Vermont in all it’s Fall glory :) I don’t know who took this pic, but it’s gorgeous!

What are your favorite things about autumn? Mine are the beautiful foliage, the smell of the leaves, the crisp air, the fresh from the trees apples, the smell of baking apple pie, and hot cocoa.


What’s Going On

Wow. It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged here :( Very sorry for that!


At the moment, there’s not much to report. I’ve finished the rough draft of Isles and West #3–it’s printed out but I’ll wait a little longer to start edits/revisions. The first book in the Isles and West trilogy–Over the River–is out to agents, two of which have partials. Fingers crossed!!! Book two is written, revised, and ready to go. I’ve actually written the first six pages of book 4, which caught me by surprise–I wasn’t expecting the next book to speak to me so soon. Book #4 is not part of another trilogy, nor do I expect any book after it to be. The trilogy has an arc, with separate mysteries in each book that are solved but connected.


The world that Delilah and Milly live in… I could write forever in it, with different characters and stories and beings that aren’t introduced in the trilogy. I actually have two of those books started, and I love where those stories are going, letting me dig even deeper into the world of the Dark and Glory.


I’m also working on a novel that has nothing to do with Delilah and Milly’s world. I’m very excited about it! I don’t want to say too much right now but I will say that the monster world is wicked fun to play in :D


As soon as I have news I’ll share it here on the blog, of course. And hopefully that’ll be before the end of the year, but this is publishing and the publishing world doesn’t move at warp speed LOL


Outside of writing, I’ve just finished reading Magic Breaks by Ilona Andrewsvery much enjoyed it. And before that I finished Mirror Sight by Kristen Britain, a fabulous addition to the Green Rider books.

I’m also anxiously awaiting the start of season five of Haven. So close now!!! Can’t wait to see what happens :)



Recommendation: Demons of Oblivion Series

One of my favorite urban fantasy series is the Demons of Oblivion series by Skyla Dawn Cameron. The first book is Bloodlines. I’m not afraid to say that Zara Lain is my favorite character, but the other characters are awesome as well. Books two and three are narrated by different characters and each are unique and their voices just as clear as Zara’s, though vastly different :) If you enjoy kickass female leads, vampires, witches, hunters, demons, and a dash of romance, I highly recommend these books.

If you’re in her way, it sucks to be you.

After three hundred years of unlife, narcissistic vampire Zara Lain has seemingly done it all, and she’s now making a living as a successful thief-turned-assassin. Her newest assignment seems simple enough: kill the aging leader of the O’Connor coven and his only heir, and she’ll have another ten million in the bank.

But in the dangerous world of the supernatural, few things are ever “simple.”

When a massive assault decimates the continent’s population of powerful witches and warlocks, and its orchestrator has vampires being hunted down and captured, Zara realizes the tables have turned and now she’ll be playing the hero. Forced to join with a smart-mouthed fellow vampire, a demonologist who’s also a fan of hers, a recently widowed—and frequently brooding—warlock, and her best friend’s mom, Zara’s grudgingly willing to do what she can to save the day.

If only people would stop ruining all her outfits…

Bloodlines also includes the short story Thrall, written in the POV of Nate O’Connor. Thrall is set toward the end of Bloodlines during a four-month gap in the timeline.

Warning: Contains heavy doses of snark, a sexually confident heroine who likes killing people and has no secret heart of gold, lots of explosions, and very naughty language. Also, some terrible stuff happens to expensive formal wear. I’m sorry. I’m really, really sorry.



A Suggestion While You Wait…

Hey all. Sorry about the quiet but not much to report other than I’m working on revisions for one book and, hopefully, I’ll have news on another book soon. In the meantime, if you like ghosts and awesome female protags, you should check out Natasha Hoar’s novellas:

(clicking on the cover takes you to her website)



‘Rachel Miller thought her next job was a run-of-the-mill haunting. As a member of the Order of Rescue Mediums it’s her duty to release trapped spirits from the earthly realm. But when called to client Sylvia Elkeles’s house, she finds a wraith who doesn’t act like he should.

The Order considers the wraith an extreme threat and Rachel may be forced to use a barbaric ritual to free him—a ritual that comes with a heavy personal price. If she fails to humanely release the wraith, she’ll have her supernatural abilities bound.

When Janus Ostara—local supernatural mob boss—shows up demanding her attention, and Sylvia keeps secrets that may place Rachel in mortal danger, she doesn’t need her abilities to know something darkly sinister is at play.

Between uncovering Sylvia’s disturbing motives, and avoiding Janus, Rachel has enough on her hands without dealing with a wraith who may not realize he’s supposed to be dead…’


So, I’ve recently gotten the rights back to all three of my works–The Red Barn, Ghoultown, and Over the River. Sometime in the next week or two those three books will no longer available for purchase at any retailer.

There is a reason for this and I hope to be able to announce that reason soon, but be assured, those three books will be available again in the future– I promise.
