August Newsletter

Copy of my August newsletter:

 

Hello awesome readers!

As we all know, it’s August. In two short weeks, I will be returning to work as a high school science teacher. This summer has been a great one for writing and promoting my latest series, the Immortal Chronicles. I look forward to going back to work but will definitely miss all the time I could dedicate to writing.

Any who… to celebrate the end of summer, I found some AWESOME giveaways and Freebies that I wanted to share with you all!

First up:

This scavenger hunt hosts a rafflecopter giveaway of free ebooks, signed copies, swag bags, etc.

Check it out here: http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/e8df5c982…

ENDS THIS WEEKEND!

One of my FAVORITE series is having the first book FREE this weekend from August 4th – 8th. Click the Amazon Link to download your copy this weekend!

P.S. For those of you who read Enlightened, Darcie picks up this book at the Brunswick Public Library!

 

Finally, I’ve been doing a good amount of reading in July. Here are some of the books that REALLY drew me in that I think some of you might enjoy.

*Click on the images to visit the series pages on Amazon.*

 

1. The Marked Series by T.L. McDonald


 

2. Curse of the Gods Series by Jane Washington & Jaymin Eve (2 of 5 books complete)

 

3. The Marked by Bianca Scardoni (3 of 4 books complete)

 

NOTE: All of these books are available through a program on Amazon called Kindle Unlimited. Basically, its paying 10 bucks a month for unlimited access to hundreds of thousands of amazing books. For me, it is where I found most of my summer reads. In July alone, I read 10 books. Which, if you do the math, means I spent $1 per book. You can’t beat that!

 

I hope you were able to find something fun to read in this Newsletter. I will send out another one in September!

 

Until next time, happy reading!

Two Reasons to Celebrate!

Today (July 25, 2017) is a very exciting day for me!

 

Not only is it release day for Ensnared, Immortal Chronicles Book II, but it is also the SECOND ANNIVERSARY of the day I released my first novel, Will of Fate of the Dual Court Series!

To celebrate the two years since I entered the amazing world of publishing, I decided to commission new covers to commemorate the series!

So, without further ado, here are the new covers for Will of Fate & Work of Fate of the Dual Court Series:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do you think? Leave me a comment or reach out on social media to let me know that you think!

Although I love reminiscing on my first series, I can’t NOT mention Ensnared (It is its Release Day, after all).  To get your copy of Ensnared, visit Amazon HERE.

My Favorite YA Paranormal/Fantasy Books for May!

If I’m being honest, May has been a crazy month for me. With work, sending out beta copies of Enlightened, and my day to day tasks, I haven’t been able to read as much as I would like. Needless to say, a book REALLY had to steal my attention for me to volunteer valuable time to read it.

So, without further ado, here are my TOP TWO reads of May and their Blurbs from Amazon. I highly recommend each of them for fans of YA paranormal/fantasy romance! I did not regret a minute spent reading these novels.

1. Suppressed by Wendi L. Wilson

There are strange things out there. Things I thought only existed in fairy tales.

My name is Kailani Ericson and my life pretty much sucks. My mother is an indentured servant in this lonely house, serving a hateful old woman who gets her kicks by terrorizing me. One of my few comforts is the sea in my backyard. Diving into its frigid depths is the one thing that makes me truly happy.

Then he shows up, and my entire world shifts.

Bryce Howell is gorgeous, every girl’s fantasy. He’s also arrogant, insolent, and strictly forbidden. But he’s not normal. He’s something different. Something magical. Our attraction to each other just may be my downfall.

As it turns out, I’m not normal either. I am the stuff of myths and legends. Suddenly, my love of the sea and its pull on me make a lot more sense.

They say legends never die, and I hope that’s true. There are those who want me dead, and if I can’t put a halt to my seemingly inevitable transformation, there will be nothing I can do to stop them.

I love the sea, but ultimately, it might just be what kills me.

2. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin–one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin–and his world–forever.
