I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Mine was hectic, fun, and filled with family and friends. After a very busy (and personally crazy) few months, I'm so glad to share some progress with you all. The cover, title, and description for the fourth Gods & Monsters novel. I hope you love it as much as I do! Mae I Designs, the designer of the cover, did an amazing job of capturing the mood and feel of the book while keeping in tune with the brand of the other 3 covers. The release date for the book is February 17th. I know this is beyond what I anticipated. My daughter is having hip surgery between now and then, and I've had to readjust the timing in order to care for her. I could rush it, but the goal is to put out the best book possible, and this time (with Indie publishing it myself), I want to make sure you get the same great quality of book that you're used to. So lots of editing, copy editing, and proofreading!
The book is not yet available for pre-order. However, it is now listed on Goodreads for those who wish to add to their book list.
Apologies... It's been so long since I've updated here! FB and Twitter seem to get the attention these days. Anyway, a couple things. THE WICKED WITHIN is now out trade paperback. And Simon & Schuster has released me from my option and I'm free and clear to write more in the Gods & Monsters series in the Indie arena! I'm so excited about this. I am done with the rough draft of Ari 4. Yup, that's right. There will be a fourth book! I'm not yet able to give an exact date yet as I'm still rewriting, then must go through copy-editing, proofing, cover design, finalizing title, etc... But, it's progress! :D
The New Adult genre is exploding, especially in the area of contemporary romance, and boy there are some amazing books to chose from! But what about other genres of NA, you ask? Fabulous sub-genres like Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gothic, Historical, and more. Sounds enticing, doesn't it?
"Fall for the new New Adult: is a campaign to spread the word that New Adult has also expanded into new and exciting categories like Historical, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Gothic, and more! Follow along to find out why best-selling NA authors & NA bloggers are excited to see New Adult expand outside of contemporary.
And as an incentive to give the new NA a try, the Fall for New Adultbundle set will be available for a limited time. Set includes 4 great non-contemporary NA novels for only $3.99!
It's been a long time coming. About 19 months. Thank you, Dear Readers, for sticking with Ari and Company and waiting so long to see what happens next in the series. I hope you dig the outcome.
Set in a richly reimagined, near-future New Orleans, ancient lore leads to present danger in the final book in the dark urban fantasy YA trilogy about a cursed, battle-weary teen on the hunt for a powerful relic called the Hands of Zeus, a relic the goddess Athena will stop at nothing to possess.
I humbly ask if you read THE WICKED WITHIN (and/or have read DARKNESS BECOMES HER and A BEAUTIFUL EVIL), that you consider leaving a review somewhere where readers shop(Amazon, B&N, Apple, etc...) as feedback really helps other potential readers browsing books to consider the series. The books and I thank you. :)

Taking part in the fabulous Authors are Rock Stars Tour once again. This time I posted about my playlist for THE WICKED WITH at Into The Mystic. Hope you'll check it out and follow along the tour--there are some amazing authors taking part!
And a title, and a release date for the third Ari book. THE WICKED WITHIN, September 17th 2013. I really love this title, but alas I cannot take credit. My editor came up with it and I think it's brilliant! Blurb should be coming soon... But in the meantime . . . the cover!
