Sunday

Happy Sunday!

 

It is sleeting and snowing today, which means it’s a perfect day for a big mug of hot cocoa 🙂 I will be changing tea later but right now I am enjoying the cocoa- dark chocolate, of course ❤

Tuck 4 is closing in on 35k, and if the pace yesterday keeps up today I will be over 40k by the end of the day. This makes me happy…and puts the book ahead of schedule. I am still aiming for a Spring release~ somewhere between the end of April and the middle of May.

Normally on Sundays I write whatever book is talking the loudest, which can change throughout the day, and right now Tuck is loud LOL

Last Sunday I wrote a little over 2k on the first book in a new series. Came out of nowhere and I wrote that first chapter in a little over an hour. That is how insistent the main character is to tell her tale. The book is Urban Fantasy and I’m actually very excited about it. I think you guys will love the main character 🙂

The other UF I’m working on is flowing smoothly as well~ lots of UF stories in my head! Here’s the status of the other books I’m working on:

*Sera’s first book has gone through second revisions, and I’m almost ready to send it to the editor. I want to do one more pass before I do that, though.

*Delilah and Milly’s fourth book is well underway 🙂

*While one anthology short story is with the editor, I am working on another short story to submit to a different anthology.

*I am also working on a novella that will lead to a new trilogy in the Isles and West world. This will take place in Boston, with a different set of characters that I think you’ll love. You also get to see a bit of how those who survived the attacks in Ghoultown are doing.

In non-writing news, my arm is slowly- slowly– healing. It hurts, as expected, and sleep is still a struggle but progress is progress and I am remaining positive. I have another appointment with the doctor at the beginning of March and that will determine if I need surgery for the piece of bone that broke away (holding on my one tiny corner). I do not want surgery (I had it a year ago and don’t wish to go through it again, no matter how simple it may seem).

I’ve watched a lot of movies, since I can’t really go out and do stuff- if it’s not my arm, it’s the weather. Last night I watched Mortal Engines, and I really enjoyed it. I don’t know why it wasn’t more successful because I thought it was absolutely awesome! No, I haven’t read the book 🙂

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

On the Bright Side

So, I slipped on ice the other day and broke my arm (the humerus) and gave my head a good knock. Writing will be slow going for a bit 😦 I am thankful it wasn’t worse.

In good news, The Duchess and Aequitas are now available as ebooks!!!! Links below.

Resuming her picture taking, Delilah found herself near the sandbox again. A presence stirred the air, poking around her energy like icy fingers. She took a picture, waiting patiently for the spirit to appear. It was struggling against the pressure of the “someone.” She didn’t urge the ghost—no need to rush.

Shoveling—a shovel digging into dirt.

The impression of a small shovel dug into the snow and scooped it up. The white powder traveled in the air for a moment before sliding off and disappearing. A few seconds later, the grainy echo of dirt hitting the bottom of a bucket touched her ears.

The ghost was trying to tell her something. Sometimes, a child spirit had a hard time putting a full image through, but the audio was loud and clear.

“Put that shovel down right now!”

Delilah jumped at the shrill voice. A door swung open behind her, but she kept her gaze on the stilled snow in front of her. It was halfway to the bucket. Fear from the child began to grip her mind. The poor thing was frozen with it.

“But Mama, I…”

Delilah moved her head slightly. Footsteps appeared in the snow beside her, about a foot away. The sound of fabric rustling came and stopped.

“I said no playing, young man.” The woman’s voice shook with anger.

The fear rose.

“You know the rules.”

“I just wanted to play for a minute!” the boy pleaded.

Delilah sensed him huddled in the sandbox, making himself small.

“It’s been days, Mama!”
A growl came from the woman. Ice crawled up Delilah’s arm in response.

“I know the days, son.” The words were said in a dangerous whisper.

Re-Release: THE RED BARN

Hello All!

On the heels of Over the River, I give you THE RED BARN 🙂 This is a short story told in the POV of a malicious ghost. It is in the Isles and West world, but has none of the characters from those books.

The Red Barn will be a free read on Kobo and B&N, and $0.99 on Amazon (Amazon won’t let me put it up for free). I will add links as it goes lives.

KOBO ~ BARNES & NOBLE

Blurb:

When a ghost reaches her limit with an unwanted guest, there’s no telling what Hell will arise.

I have escaped my afterlife for over two centuries, locking my spirit into the old red barn. There have been many owners since my death, but none have ever given me as much strength as the new male owner.

There’s just one problem- his wife.

She is unbearable to me. One of us has to go, and it sure as Hell isn’t going to be me.

Re-Release: Over the River

Happy Wednesday!

Over the River is again available!

AMAZON ~ KOBO ~ B&N

BLURB:

Down a snowy dirt road, in a farmhouse filled with death and fear, there is a woman…

The Weatherby Mills history books paint Joslyn Faust as a kind and generous woman who was willing to help any of her neighbors in need. Weatherby Mills lore, however, holds her ghost responsible for the deaths of four men.

Delilah Isles knows all the legends of the tri-towns: from the friendliest and nastiest of ghosts, to the dangerous and terrifying beasts and beings of the Dark and Glory. So when the case of the Faust Homestead lands on her desk, she is both intrigued and skeptical.

Working for the New England Spirit Society, she and her partner, Milly West, have seen spirits and non-human entities commit many brutal attacks. After all, the N.E.S.S. only investigates the most violent and disturbing cases. However, even with the four assaults contributed to Joslyn Faust, Delilah isn’t certain the case is truly N.E.S.S. material. That all changes the first time she and Milly set foot on the Faust property and witness firsthand just how vicious the celebrated townswoman’s spirit can be.

I am planning on putting these up on iBooks, so stay tuned for that link!

Ghoultown Re-Release

Happy Thursday!

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.

Kobo ~ Amazon ~ Barnes and Noble

Blurb:

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.

 

Book Trailer:

 

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!
