The Blood Queen will be released January 7, 2020! I do have a book trailer ready to go but for now, here is the cover and blurb ❤
A dark ghost is hunting young women along the east coast. Out of the fourteen linked to the spirit, only two have been found- their bodies tortured and drained of blood. The Paranormal Detectives and FBI agents working the case know two things for certain: the ghost is a woman, and she was smuggled into Boston from Eastern Europe.
Saint McGuinness hasn’t been to her hometown of Boston in several years, haunted by the nightmares of her past. But when a good friend comes to her door and asks for help hunting those responsible for smuggling the dark ghost into the city, she can’t say no. After witnessing the carnage that took place fifteen years prior, when the city was brought to its knees by the summoned Dark, Saint will do whatever she can to save her old stomping grounds from bleeding again.
Even if that means walking into the one place she never wants to see again- the Dark.
Happy National Book Lovers Day!
With the recent release of Dark Scorpio (I hope you’re all enjoying it!), I thought it would be a good time to let you now what’s coming down the pipe 🙂
*Sera’s first book: is in the final round of revisions before I send it to an editor. I’m hoping for a December/January release date.
*The Blood Queen novella: second round of revisions and then will be off to an editor. Hoping for an October/November release date. The cover is done (as you have all seen!), so all that’s left is the editing.
*YA Urban Fantasy: is chugging along at a nice pace! I’m so excited for this one 😀
*Dark Cozy: looking for a home at the moment, but I am considering self-publishing it. Book two is already 1/4 of the way written. I plan for this to be a trilogy.
*Tuck 4: is getting there. Taking longer than planned but I get the rights back to the first two books next year and am hoping to have book four done and ready to release not long after I re-release the first two.
*I have two short stories, three novellas, and four novels (including the first full-length book in the Dark Zodiac series) on my plate. All are writing very well!
I am hoping that the next year will be full of releases and some other good news. The cue is lining up~ your patience is appreciated and I’m so excited for you all to read the new stories!!!
Happy Sunday! Here is an excerpt from Dark Scorpio~ out now 🙂

As the autopsy began, she opened her gift so she could see the Pisces and Scorpio signs on the victim. Nothing was out of the ordinary until the heart was removed. “Stop.”
Her breath caught as the image of a scorpion wrapped around the heart and then sank inside.
“What is it?” Sora asked.
“Pick up the heart, Asher, so that I can see it more clearly.”
He picked the heart up carefully and held it over the body.
The shape of a scorpion began to form again on the heart, almost as if someone was burning it on.
Sora cursed in Japanese, and though she didn’t understand a word of it, she caught the meaning well enough: ‘fucking hell and damnation’.
“The first heart did not do that,” Asher said.
As the Scorpio constellation began to sparkle like a ruby in sunlight, Autumn’s eyes narrowed. “That’s because the first victim wasn’t Zodiac gifted—this one is. She marked his soul. That’s why her trail disappeared so fast.” She met Sora’s dark gaze. “She’s using the Piscean energy to hide herself, using his soul to wipe the trail clean.”
I ended up releasing it early LOL
As soon as the book goes live on B&N, I will add that link~ enjoy!!!

Just a brief update on where my writing is at 🙂
*I am really close to being done with The Blood Queen. I am aiming for a September/October release date, though that depends on editing.
*Sera’s first book is still being revised. Almost done!
*Tuck 4~ kind of got off the tracks so I have gone back and read-through from the beginning. I think I know what happened and am in the process of fixing it. Still hoping to get it out this year.
*I have some finished, ready to go short stories that I’m planning on releasing soon! They need covers and formatting, but I’m hoping to get the first one out by end of July/August.
I, of course, have a bunch of ideas that have a few chapters each already written 😀 I work on whatever is loudest on Sundays and at the moment that’s The Blood Queen. I know it’s been awhile between releases but there is behind the scenes stuff happening and it’s slowed me down a bit. But rest assured, books are coming and I can’t wait for you to read them!
I’m going to leave you today with a poem from a short story I wrote in high school 🙂 The story would need major overhauling to be published today (I did write it for a senior project!), but the poem isn’t half bad. This came to me in Math class LOL
I have a special announcement today 🙂 Ghoultown~ an Isles and West novella~ is being re-released! Right now, it has gone live on Kobo, but I will post links as it goes live elsewhere.

Boston is on its knees: one hundred sixteen infected, eighty-two dead. There is no sign that the attacks from the Dark will stop anytime soon.
In training with the FBI’s Reaper Team, Delilah Dalton and Milly Shores—two nineteen year olds with gifts to deal with the dead and the Dark—are caught up in the gruesome case. A case that will push their abilities to the limit.
If the team can’t stop the killing soon, South Boston will be nothing but a blood-drenched feeding ground for dark beasts.
This is my first time self-publishing, and luckily I have experienced people walking me through the process (thank you Skyla Dawn Cameron!). If all goes well this round, I will re-release the full-length books as well as my short story, The Red Barn. Hopefully that will happen by the end of this year.
In the meantime, please enjoy Ghoultown once again! I did a light edit, so only a few minor changes have been made. In series news, I am revising Sera’s first novel, which I hope to have ready once the other three are released. That way you all get a new book right off the bat 🙂 I am also working on the new Delilah and Milly novel.
Have a great day!
The time has come~ the next Tuck Houston novel is LIVE!
Evernight Publishing ~ Barnes and Noble ~ Smashwords
Amazon ~ iTunes
An ancient grudge. An ancient darkness. A slayer who will stop at nothing to put an end to both.
When her good friend Lucia DiGregorio calls her asking for help, slayer Tuck Houston immediately joins the hunt. Once she gets a hint of strigoi power at the scene of a slaughter, she understands exactly why Lucia called her in.
Shortly after that slaughter, Tuck realizes that the team is in a trap and none of them will be able to leave until the game is done. The gravity of the situation is made clear when they discover that the vampyr responsible holds an ancient grudge against Lucia’s family, and that the strigoi in league with the vampyr has his own plans for Tuck once the game is done.
But Tuck won’t make success easy for the vampyr or the strigoi. She will find a way to end the game … even if she has to die to do it.
