ABOUT THE BOOK:
All Aaliyah had ever wanted was to be invisible…To not be stared at. To not have to display her lifelong pain everywhere she goes. But society is too blind to see that beauty lies beneath the skin.

Aaliyah only reveals her special mark—a facial birthmark—to the closest people in her life. But when Aaliyah’s friend paints her in a portrait titled The Marked One, her birthmark is exposed to the world. Now no amount of makeup can keep Aaliyah’s secret.

Tristan Gerardo appears to be a successful CEO, but he is hiding many secrets…

What many don’t realize is that his successful public persona is a mask for his own pain—both of losing a sibling, and his failed marriage.

Tristan buys a portrait called The Marked One, and is shocked when the subject of the portrait arrives for an interview at his company. He pursues Aaliyah, and while she is cautious at first, she feels an ease around Tristan that she’s never experienced before.

Little by little, Tristan’s secrets are exposed…

While Tristan struggles to keep Aaliyah from finding out how his sister died, she discovers he is still married. He assures her she has his full loyalty and the divorce is just a matter of time, and she desperately wants to believe him. But his estranged wife re-enters his life, and Tristan must figure out how to convince Aaliyah that she means the world to him.

How can Tristan make Aaliyah realize that he loves her for herself, and not because of her notoriety as The Marked One?

Daybreak Rising Cover Reveal!

I spoke about Daybreak Rising quite a bit on my other blog, and when Kiran contacted me about posting a cover reveal for it, I was super excited. I was lucky enough to receive and ARC (yes, I’m teasing you guys) and can’t wait to dive into it.  Normally, since Daybreak is mostly fantasy, I’d post on my other blog, but this morning I woke up to website shenanigans (curses). Still, that’s not going to stop me from sharing!

On September 21, 2016, the F/F fantasy DAYBREAK RISING will be arriving to an e-readers near you from Torquere Press! Today, we get a first look at the amazing cover, designed by the amazing artist Kris Norris over at Torquere.

Here’s a bit about DAYBREAK RISING:

22-year-old Celosia Brennan spent sixteen years being raised as the heroine her nation needed. A dual-touched Elementalist with both the power to conjure fire and see glimpses of her future, Celosia was the best hope at overthrowing the oppressive Council in a mission called Daybreak, an attempt to secure justice for the massacre of her people and so many others. There’s just one problem: she couldn’t. Celosia broke down after realizing the enormity of her task, and is struggling to make things right while the blood of her fellows stains her hands.

Now branded a failure, Celosia desperately volunteers for the next mission: taking down the corrupt Council with a team of her fellow elementally-gifted mages. Leading the Ember Operative gives Celosia her last hope at redemption. They seek to overthrow the Council once and for all, this time bringing the fight to Valeria, the largest city under the Council’s iron grip. But Celosia’s new teammates don’t trust her—all except for a powerful ice Elementalist named Ianthe who believes in second chances.

With Council spies, uncontrolled magic, and the distraction of unexpected love, Celosia will have to win the trust of her teammates and push her abilities to the breaking point to complete the Ember Operative. Except if she falters this time, there won’t be any Elementalists left to stop the Council from taking over not only her country, but their entire world.

So here it is…The moment we’ve been waiting for…

You can add DAYBREAK RISING to your GoodReads TBR shelf today, and pre-orders should be live from Torquere soon! Be sure to sign up to Torquere Press’s newsletter to be the first to know when DAYBREAK RISING is available for pre-order.

Con Artists, Scandal, and Bribes, Oh My! San Francisco Book Review

Hey, guys! It’s been a while. I’ve been working on the fifth and final book in The Outsider Chronicles, and I’ve had quite an adventure this past week. Adventures of the scammy sort.

I was a freelance review for San Francisco Book Review and had an awful experience with the company’s owner Heidi Komlofske-Rojek, who refused to pay me, citing financial difficulties, yet somehow had the funds to go on vacation.

You can read the full story HERE

But wait, there’s more.

After finally getting compensated for my time and hard work, Heidi Komlofske-Rojek attempted to bully me into modifying my statements and wanted me to lie about my transactions with the company.

It’s funny that a book review site would handle a negative review so badly. Things that make you go hmmm.

You can find my update HERE

If you, and anyone you know has had any interactions with this company or Heidi Komlofske-Rojek in the past, I heartily encourage you to step forward. As long as we remain silent, freelancers and authors will continue to be robbed.

Story Time with Kayti

A couple of days ago I was in the chocolate aisle in Kroger stocking up (there was a close out sale on at least a third of them, can you say chocolate binge?)

Out of the corner of my eye I see this guy turning down the aisle, and usually beards don’t really do it for me ( they’re nice, but not my thing), but this beard was doing all kind of things.

He was doing the power walk, like when you have on some killer heels and a nice dress and you know you slay. His was the male version.

Anyway, he walks past and we make eye contact.

Now, down here in good ole Georgia we had just gone through a mild cold snap and everyone was dusting off their rarely used coats and oooing, and ahing over the three or four snow flurries that made it to the ground.

Me? I was in my cat hat, my hoodie, and a twelve foot long purple scarf wrapped up to my eyeballs.

Why is it that all the hot people are met when you’re looking shlumpy?

But I digress.

We make eye contact, the kind that could have been something, something dirty, something involving a whole different level of chocolate. The human kind.

But then he SLIPS.

Not like, “Oops, I’m so klutzy and adorable. Kawaii-desu ne sugoi!”

Nope. It’s practically a split.

Not like this

Like this

 

He’s good though, he recovers quick, (not as epically as the Nicholas brothers of course) picks up his face and resumes walking past, though that power walk has lost so much of its fire it’s barely simmering.

I feel for you Hot Dude, I really do. I didn’t laugh but that won’t stop me from telling everybody else. Heh heh

And thus concludes Story Time with Kayti, tune in next week, same Write Bitch time, same Write Bitch hour.

Skye Malone’s AWAKEN

Running away from home was never Chloe Kowalski’s plan.
Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in
unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents
and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know
her best friend’s hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time.
But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things
start to happen. Dangerous…
