About the Book

Rylee is a normal girl, living in a normal world. At least that’s what she thinks until an Onyx Warrior tells her the truth. She is trapped in a dream world by an ancient and powerful vampire, while he feeds on her blood at his leisure. Worse, her only chance for escape is likely to get her killed.

WIP Wednesday: New Short Story Coming!


Yay! I have finished the short story for March. It’s with the editor right now, but it will be ready for its 15th of March release date. It’s called, The Dream Crypt (An Onyx Warrior Short Story), and I’m seriously considering doing a series based on it. If you’d like to read more about it, I have a page set up for it and it’s even available for pre-order in some places.

The Dream Crypt

I’ve also finished Episode 19 of Shadow Stalker and that’s with the editor as well. I’ll be starting episode 20 this week and should have it done by next week. Episode 19 is due to be released the 5th of April.

I’m still in the planning stages for A God’s Deception series. It’s more involved than I first anticipated since I’m essentially building an entirely new society that has developed around a religion that I’m also creating. It’s been interesting though. The story has changed a lot from the original concept, but I think it’ll be a lot better now.

I’ll be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo next month, so I’m hoping to get a good start on the story then. I set a pretty low word count because my daughter is off from school for the first two weeks in April, and I don’t schedule any new stuff when she’s not in school. I usually use that time (when I’m not doing stuff with my daughter) to catch up if I’ve fallen behind. So I won’t start writing the novel until the second half of the month.

That’s about all for now. Don’t forget to sign up below to get a free book!

Saturday Sneak Peeks: March Short Story

Designed by Kathryn Jenkins at Magical Designs


As promised, this week I have a sneak peek from my March short story. It’s a new genre for me, so I’m a bit nervous about it, but also excited at the same time. It’s with the editor now and will be ready for its 15th of March release.

My only problem is I haven’t been able to decide on a title and I would love some feedback on the cover as well, so I put together a poll and would love to here from you.

Help me Give my Story a Title and Cover!

Rylee had been feeling as though she had woken in an alternate reality lately. People walked the streets like zombies, with their blank, emotionless expressions. Every morning she followed the same routine, and nothing seemed to change.

“Good morning,” she said to a passerby.

The woman looked at her as though she was trying to figure out if someone had actually spoken to her, then walked off.

“People are so rude,” Rylee said under her breath.

She lifted her pastry to take another bite. Even the food hadn’t been the same. Almost tasteless. She couldn’t even seem to smell anything. Had the world always been this way, and she didn’t notice? She hoped she wasn’t getting sick. Just as the pastry touched her lips, someone grabbed her arm and pulled her into the alleyway.

Rylee opened her mouth to scream, but a gloved hand muffled the sound.

“Be quiet. There are listeners everywhere. You’re in danger, but I’m here to help,” a woman said.

Rylee turned to face the woman as soon as she released her. “Danger? What do you mean? Wait! What’s a listener? Who are you?”

Thanks for taking the time to read the sneak peek. Hope you enjoyed it. If you’d like to be one of the firsts to hear about the release, sign up below!
