Yes, it has been forever since I have posted anything. I can tell you though, that I have been working like a mad woman over the past several weeks, and I can finally share some exciting news.

My entire body of work will be available in print!

Amazon is now printing my books for me and I have spent many days (and nights) editing and formatting my first trilogy. I just received the paperbacks and I am beyond happy to see them in print.

I also worked on new book covers with Seppin over at SeppinRek and I am in love with how they look.

Happy reading!

I am very thrilled to announce that Surrendered Moon is released and available for digital download!

Writing a six book series was quite a challenge for me. The whole process took longer than I thought, but I am pleased with the end result. It’s going to be hard to close the book on this series. I’ve been with these characters and getting to know them for well over a year now, but alas, it is time to say goodbye.

I hope that you enjoy the final installment in The Hidden Realm Series and I thank you for your continued support.

Captivating Wick Release Date & Info

97904903-5b34-4edd-ad78-90409324898a

 

Life is funny, isn’t it? I’m sitting here and I had to pause for a second because I cannot believe I am already writing out this blog post. I literally just published Enchanting Wick a few weeks ago and now, here I am again, ready to publish another book.

I suppose the only explanation I have is that I absolutely loved creating, and writing, Wick and Gracie’s story. These two characters have enchanted me since I started dreaming up The Hidden Realm Series. I guess, in some ways, my obsession and love for them propelled me to work harder than I ever have before.

Captivating Wick is a story about love and redemption. It is also about discovering the true meaning of loving someone, warts and all. Wick is not a typical storybook character. He’s an anti-hero at best. He is not ashamed of his past, nor does he hesitate to kill anyone who stands in his way or threatens those he cares about. He is somewhat mentally unstable and I did not want to shy away from that element.

The simple fact is, most male characters you read about today are pretty messed up, but Wick doesn’t use that as an excuse. He takes full responsibility for his actions and he wears his insanity proudly on his sleeve ( as noted by Gracie). His past does not dictate his future. He does not use the excuse of being domineering as his way to control his environment, nor does he participate in any showman like sexual deviant games.

He is, down deep, a lost little boy, who craves love and he finds that unconditional love with Gracie.

In Captivating Wick, Gracie has other issues to worry about besides Wick. She has something infinitely more important to focus her attention on and it was interesting to weave a tale of two people navigating this tricky situation.

Yes, there is one huge bombshell revealed at the climax and it is an aspect of the story that I have been working on since day one. I just wasn’t quite sure when I was going to incorporate it in the six book series. I can also tell you that Maximus does indeed make a quick appearance towards the end and I am now itching to write his and Marianna’s tale.

The release date for Captivating Wick is November 17, 2015 and I am pleased as punch to unveil the blurb, and the book trailer.

 

Blurb:

Book Four of The Hidden Realm Series concludes the epic love story of Gracie and Wick.

Gracie has turned to the only man that can help her after a stunning discovery rocks her world. She knows Wick’s state of mind is precarious, but she has no choice. She must place her faith and trust into the damaged man that she loves with all her heart.

Danger and deception threaten them at every turn. Wick is determined to keep Gracie safe at all costs and he is pushed to the edge of his unstable darkness as their love deepens. A new life emerges, but will it be their salvation or their destruction?

A shocking revelation will be revealed and their lives will never be the same as they continue to fight against the evil interim werewolf king who has vowed to get his revenge on Wick.

Join Wick and Gracie on their journey as they navigate the road to love and redemption!

Oh, I have waited a long time for this book to be published. I was writing Gracie and Wick’s story when I started The Fairy Door. Don’t misunderstand me. I adore Liliana and Killian. I think their story is one of the sweetest I have ever written, but there’s just something about Wick…

It was exhilarating to develop a character that is the very definition of an anti-hero. His insanity became my joy and I loved writing Gracie. She is the perfect compliment to his personality and I fell in love with their story.

Yes, the sex scenes are a bit more graphic, but I felt they needed to be with these two lovers. I don’t think they are any more scandalous than what is out there now as far as stories go and I stand by with what I wrote.

I hope and pray that my readers will love them as much as I do. I also hope they will forgive me for the slight cliff hanger at the end…

 

 

Book Blurb:

*Enchanting Wick*
*The Hidden Realm Series Book Three*

Gracie Donahue was a thoroughly modern woman in the human realm, but that all changed when she happened upon a fairy door and entered the magical world of the hidden realms.

Gracie should have been content with her new life. Her best friend, Liliana joined her in Fairyland months ago and Lil was now the queen. She had pursued her dream of owning her own bridal shop and she was now looking forward to opening another store in the vampire realm. She had a new family that she adored and she loved the beauty of her new home.

Life should have been perfect for Gracie, but something was still missing.

One fateful encounter changes her whole world and it will plunge her into a passionate love affair like no other.

King Warwick of the vampire realm is known as the mad king. His methods are outrageous and his deranged actions are well known throughout the land. He is captivated by Gracie the instant he lays eyes on her and he will stop at nothing to have her in his bed.

Their erotic encounters shake them both to their jaded cores, but can they find a deeper connection as danger surrounds them or will the fiery flames of desire prove to be too much for both of them?

Join Wick and Gracie in this enchanting tale!

New Release: The Fairyland Queen!

It’s finally here! I know it may not seem like a long time for my readers since I just published The Fairy Door in July, but it has been an exhausting journey for me.

I started this book the second, The Fairy Door, was in my editor’s hands. After about eight chapters though, I ran out of gas. I’m not sure if it was because I have been writing nonstop for the last few years, or if it was because I was suffering from a slight depression that my children were getting older.

I don’t know what it was exactly, but within minutes of my twin boys passing their driver’s license test, I shut down and draped a protective shroud around our home for the summer.

I didn’t want to write for the first time in ages. I just wanted to enjoy my children and I also needed a creative break.

It wasn’t easy firing up the laptop, but I had a deadline to meet and I was given two weeks by my editor.

It was the best thing she could have said to me because I was starting to doubt myself as a writer. I wasn’t sure if I could pick up the proverbial pen again.

If you look at the absence of blog posts over the last few months then you will see that it was in all areas I was suffering from a brain and body collapse.

Once I started typing though, all the insecurities went out of my head and I found myself loving this story once again.

I’m not going to lie, but it was really writing the epilogue which turned into chapter one for Enchanting Wick that propelled me into an excitement that I haven’t felt before.

I love these characters. Liliana is interesting to write because she is such a good person and Killian is her male counterpart in every way. I hope you enjoy continuing on their journey with them and I also hope you are ready for what lies ahead because the next few books are explosive!
