Updates!

Apologies for being utterly terrible at updating this blog with real posts lately. This year is going to be my busiest yet, so I thought I’d do a quick round-up of what’s coming in the next nine months. I hope you’re as excited as I am!

1. What’s Left of Me (The Firebird Trilogy #2): Officially in production. Release date is July 26!

2. Beautiful Things: Now that I have the rights back since the original publisher went kaput at the end of 2015, I’m releasing a second edition. This one will be revised and expanded, so if you were wishing for more of Mitzi and Wolfrik, you’re going to get it! I’m aiming to have this out sometime around the end of June. Doubly excited about this one because a dear friend and fantastic artist is doing the new cover. More details soon!

3. No One on Earth: This is a m/m sci-fi romance novella I’m writing for After Glows Publishing’s winter holiday anthology. First draft is done!

4. “The Wind Whispers ‘Witiko'”: OK, so I spent YEARS trying to sell this story, and at WHC 2015 in Atlanta, I was fortunate enough for one of Black Mirror Press’s co-owners to sit beside me. We struck up a conversation, exchanged info, and a few months later I was invited to submit to their first anthology, Snowpocalypse. My wendigo story finally sees the light of day!

5. Prison Made of Mirrors: My novella-length dark fantasy retelling of Snow White, with Vikings and werewolves, releases from Vagabondage Press later this year.

Things Not So Set in Stone:

Upcoming projects include the final book in The Firebird Trilogy (as-yet untitled, but I’ll be starting work on it within the next few days), the paranormal romance I’ve started three or four times now and finally figured out where I want to go with it, and a romance short story for a project I can’t talk about yet. I’ve also finished a vampire short story that I’ll be submitting for anthology consideration. Other things possibly happening this year if I have time: a m/m shifter romance novella and a holiday hockey romance novella.

I think that’s everything!

News, Future Projects, and Where I’ve Been Lately

I’ve been doing a lot of signal-boosting for others here lately and not posting much about myself, but that’s because this summer has been…well, “crazy” is putting it mildly. My husband and I bought a house just before Memorial Day. A few weeks later, my sister became critically ill while on vacation in San Diego, so we flew cross-country to be with her. After two weeks there, I accompanied her to her home in Virginia Beach while she recuperated. I was gone for an entire month. Two weeks after I returned home, we adopted two rescue basset hounds (who are the most loving, adorable furbabies ever) from Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue. It has certainly not been a boring summer.

While I was away, however, I managed to finally finish Firebird, the first book in a contemporary romance series featuring my beloved new character, Alex–you can check out the men who helped inspire him on my Pinterest board. I participated in Twitter’s Pit2Pub in July, generated a lot of interest, and ended up selling the trilogy to Limitless Publishing. Branching out into a new genre has been a lot of fun, and the Firebird series will keep me busy for a while, but fear not; I haven’t abandoned horror and dark fantasy! I’m also working on two steampunk novellas, a zombie novella and a novelette, a Weird novella, and a cosmic horror novel.

If you haven’t already, please consider picking up my books at Amazon, and look for Firebird on October 20!

Conduits is Out Today!

conduits Mara is a Japanese-American girl with a history of personal tragedy. Though she still cuts to quell the pain, she thought she had left the worst behind her. But her boyfriend’s sudden death and a visit to one of the most haunted places in Washington State send her into a spiral of madness that lands her in a psychiatric ward.

Already suffering from dreams of a strange, ghost-infested house in the woods, Mara begins to question the very existence of reality. She is forced to confront the truth of her older sister’s brutal murder and, unable to distinguish between nightmare and waking any longer, the reason the ghosts have chosen her as their conduit.

“An evocative journey into the darkest realms of a troubled psyche. Part ghost story, part psychological suspense, Conduits is an astonishing debut from a bold new voice in horror. Don’t miss it!” —Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh
