Got a little behind with my St. Paul Grimoire posts! But everything is up to date now. Read the next installment here.
Oddly, it was the editing that was taking me a while to do, which is weird because I don’t edit the SPG installments very heavily…but another project has been eating up most of my editing time: my second novel!
That’s right, DANA will be out by the end of this year. I already have the cover and it is another beautiful one 🙂 I’m keeping it under wraps…unless you are a newsletter subscriber, in which case you’ll soon get to see it before anyone else!
Sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss any updates on DANA! Bonus: you’ll now get a free short story when you sign up.
My book release party for TURQUOISEBLOOD was last Saturday. I had a great time showing off my shiny new novel to friends and family. Here are a few pictures:

Some reviews have come in for Turquoiseblood! Check them out:
Jaffa from Jaffalogue says:
“In a word–brilliant. This novel deftly weaves 2 narratives of adopted albino women separated by 200 years…Each thread is its own political thriller touching on like locations and motivations across mountainous Rak.
Nothing about this premise should work. And yet it slays.”
Shotobhisha from Booksandblah writes:
“I enjoyed [Kiri and Anya’s] dynamic and their banter…Their relationship was very captivating.”
Full disclosure: I provided free copies of the novel for review purposes. Click on the links for full reviews. Check out TURQUOISEBLOOD for yourself here!
And after reading, please post a review on Goodreads or Amazon! Reviews really help indie authors!
Putting the finishing touches on everything I’ll need for Saturday’s party! This isn’t my first book release party, what with the anthology (and attending author friends’ launches) but it’s my first solo event.
With physical books costing so much to print, I’m not making TURQUOISEBLOOD available for wholesale distribution, nor do I expect a flood of fans I’ve never met showing up at my party. To me, a book release party is really for my friends and family to understand what I’ve been working toward all these years. It’s going to be fun!
Stay tuned for pictures!

When the dangerous rogue dragon Anya crash lands in an isolated mountain village during a snowstorm, Kiri saves her life. Anya awakens seemingly cured of her madness and in thanks offers to show Kiri the country outside her village.

Finally! TURQUOISEBLOOD is up and available for purchase! So many people helped make this happen and I’m so thrilled to share this labor of love with the whole world.
If you’re thinking of self-publishing and want a little guidance, feel free to contact me, I’m happy to share everything I did to make it here.
No time to rest on my laurels though–new installment of St. Paul Grimoire will be up later today! Check it out!
I moved the release date of Turquoiseblood back to February 1st to allow for more time proofreading (not something you want to rush!). Bookmark this page so you’ll know the minute it’s available on Amazon!
The next SPG installment will be put off for a week or two while I put the finishing touches on TURQUOISEBLOOD! Stay tuned for updates on both!
It’s finally here! The cover to my forthcoming novel, TURQUOISEBLOOD!
Isn’t it BEAUTIFUL?!
For this cover, I worked with Glendon Haddix of Streetlight Graphics. I was very impressed by the professional-looking covers in his portfolio and I was not disappointed with this striking design!
I sent the plot of my novel and my requests for the cover look/feel over to Streetlight Graphics and was very pleased with their quick responses. I definitely recommend them to other authors looking for cover art (they are very reasonably priced as well).
TURQUOISEBLOOD will be out soon. Keep checking back here for updates!
