Cover Reveal: Empire of Shadows (The House of Crimson & Clover Volume 5)

After months and months of working to smooth and color the text for this fifth volume in the series, Empire of Shadows is off to my editor at the end of the week. Guess what that means? If you guessed coed naked pillow fight, you would be wrong. But if you guessed cover reveal, you are the winner!

Speaking of winners… I’m holding a contest over on my Facebook page. $10 Gift Card is the prize. If you like free stuff, I recommend checking that out. The pinned post has the deets.


Still working on an appropriate synopsis and blurb, and hope to have that soon. Pre-order will be live in the next few weeks.

What else can I say? This is my most ambitious work yet. So if you’re not caught up on the series yet… I recommend carving out some time! Below you’ll find a ton of shameless retailer links for your convenience or to ignore. Continue reading

Holiday Updates – NaNoWriMo, Events, Releases, Hooliganism

Just kidding… no hooliganism.

This year I decided to take a break for the holidays. Of course, a break for me simply means I’m only tackling half of my normal workload. No rest for the wicked.

10407650_10205022985601664_1147909807632707945_nNaNoWriMo: First, I finished NaNoWriMo on the 23rd, which makes this my fifth winning year in a row. My project this year was Empire of Shadows (Book 4 in the House of Crimson & Clover), which is already, without doubt, shaping up to be my longest and most ambitious work yet.

I’ll be working on Empire of Shadows through next March, when its scheduled for edits.

Upcoming Event: On December 13, I’ll be doing a reading and signing at Rusty Grape Vineyards in Battle Ground, WA, alongside authors KL Bone, Greg Wilkey, Brandy L Rivers, and Alys B Cohen. For more details about this and other events, you can stalk my events page.

Facebook Contests: I’ve let two of my Minions loose on my Facebook page through the end of the year, and they will be doing daily contests for points, leading to weekly prizes and one grand prize.

St. Charles at Dusk: This series prequel of mine has been free for most of 2014. But in early 2015, I plan to remove it from free. If you want a free copy, now is the time to grab it! Click here for a list of retailers.

Upcoming Releases:

Face the Music– The next Dauntless Indies anthology will be out on January 5th, exclusive to Amazon. You can pre-order it here. My short story contribution features something you haven’t seen from me before: vampires!

Shame: A Crimson & Clover Lagniappe- Storm and the Darkness fans… ever curious how Jon ended up the way he is? This short bonus story digs into a very dark chapter of his history that changes the truth as Summer Island always knew it. Coming in late January. Cover coming soon.

Empire of Shadows (The House of Crimson & Clover Book 4)– The lives and worlds of the Deschanels have been changed forever. A dark history and a past they can no longer ignore become front and center. Every single one of them plays a role in the family’s hour of reckoning. Coming Spring 2015. Cover reveal in December.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday! Thank you for all your support this year!
