Fright leads to mistakes. Fear leads to death. I’m not ready to die yet. I’m definitely not going to allow this long-toothed goon to gnaw on my jugular and drink my blood.Read More
The Flames of Death will release in January in the Wraith and Ruin boxed set! Here’s a short snippet:
‘Vita needs a slave to pick his teeth.’ Corinth opens his mouth, revealing two rows of razor harp teeth.
Mouth duty. One of the worst obligations ever. I hang my head. What did I do to get on Corinth’s bad side? But at least once I finish, I might be able to sneak away for a spell. That alone makes the terrible chore worthwhile.
As you desire, it shall be done.
Again, I press my forehead to the ground. I hate this position. All of us humans do, but we have no choice. We have no power here or anywhere else for that matter. We are weak. We are prey. We are slaves.
Or we are dead.Read More
Because hubby was off for a week, I was able to get a ton of writing done! I finished up Dark Hunt and expanded several short stories into longer works. All of them will be in anthologies coming up later on this year. Two are spooky stories for Halloween collections! All the words!Read More
A little snippet from Of Bones and Ashes currently in the Twisted Flipped Fairy Tale Collection!
On this occasion, the mirror revealed to me another vision. Bedridden but still wearing a beautiful garment, the queen no longer resembled herself. Her impressive jewelry rested on her bedside table and not on her person. Premature wrinkles aged her, as did spots kissed by the sun. Her eyes sank within their sockets, heavy blackness marring the tender skin beneath them. It appeared as if centuries had passed since last I saw her. The touch of death was upon her, and time was clearly running out.
Strange. The mirror never revealed to me the future, but she still breathed, as far as I knew. I would soon come to learn that, most likely, I had witnessed her ritual after she enacted the spell.
Dark Hunt will release in late September! Here’s a short snippet:
The dry season had just ended. The first rainstorm would be any day now. For once, the day was somewhat beauty.
Perfect for an execution.
“Bring forth the prisoner,” the queen said.
The moment she opened her mouth, a hush fell over the crowd. Even before she spoke, those gathered only spoke in whispered, peaceful tones. Her voice contained incredible power. It would strike fear into the heart of vampires, hope into the hearts of humans, and acceptance and adoration in the heart of witches.
Another Tuesday, another new release. Actually, two there are two of them!
It should come as no surprise that Blake Damon hates vampires. He’s a vampire hunter after all. But there’s one other supernatural creature that he hates even more.
Maybe he should’ve known better than to try to play at an ordinary life. He’d been weak.
Blake will never be weak again.

A little snippet from Of Slumber and Discord:
There she lays upon her bed large enough to fit three persons her size, beneath a ruby red silk blanket. Her mouth is perfect, those terrible lips parted slightly. It is her tongue that is wicked.
As I stare at her, my will falter. She looks peaceful now as if she could not harm a single soul. To kill another is no easy task, and so she will remain asleep. No longer will she be a blight her kingdom, able to force others to submit to her every sung command.
With rushed urgency, I whisper the words of the sleeping curse, “Sleep and rest and know no more. You shall rest for all of yore. A single prick and deep sleep waits. Ne’er shall you wake ‘til evil abates.”

The Cost of Greed will be released on August 22nd!
Some have feared and hated witches. Fear, now that I can understand. Witches are powerful and not all are kind or generous with their abilities.
But, hate? That confuses me. Some witches are cruel, granted. Not everyone is good, humans and witches alike. Does that mean we desire to be despised, disdained, or disrespected?
No, most certainly not!Read More
