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…

Pale & Crimson

I’ve been a writing demon these past few months. Writing… rewriting… the dreaded editing stage… and now, with Monster set to be available for preorder on the 6th I decided to share a little gift with the not-so-patient.

A free short story!

p&c

 

From now until July 18th, you can get your eager little hands on Pale and Crimson, a nice, gruesome little short story set in the Outsider universe.

 

Slithers are vicious creatures. Craving flesh and blood, they will stop at nothing until their hunger is satisfied. So when sixteen year old Benjamin King discovers that one has been smuggled onto the train, he’s eager to see it, even if it has been drugged into a mindless stupor.
But one moment can change everything.
Set six years before Niko, Pale and Crimson chronicles how one decision can have far reaching consequences.

Kill The Monsters

*happy dance*

If you’re follower of my main blog, you may have already seen my super excited extra special announcement. If you’re not… well then you should be. But in any case, I’m happy to tell you guys that I’m finally finished with Monster, the fourth book in The Outsider Chronicles. It’s set to be released on July 18th and I’m so, so, SO EXCITED.

It’s going to be awesome.

 

2a

 

In a world full of flesh eating creatures,

sometimes humans are the more terrifying monsters.

It’s been three months since revolution swept through the city of Cherai and ousted Councilwoman King. Banished,  the city now has a chance to recover from decades of injustice and oppression. With the help of Ben, Songhay, and the Gemini Gang, Niko works towards building a more egalitarian society.

But someone is murdering Slither hunters.

And coupled with the councilwoman’s reappearance, all of Niko’s hard work balances on a precarious precipice – one wrong move and it will all be for naught.

As the number of bodies rise and the tensions within the city increase, Niko is soon forced to make a difficult decision. And it could change everything.

 

 

*happy twirl*

Sounds good, doesn’t it? You still have time to catch up the series, you can find Niko, book 1, hanging out on Amazon looking all badass and gorgeous. Enjoy!

Monster Snippet

I usually wait till the last minute to share bits of my novel (what if I change things? What if I wind up deleting it? Is it too spoilery? *worry worry worry*)

But not this time!

Today, I just finished writing down a chapter that I absolutely love, that is practically, almost perfect, and deserves a lovely little teaser to titillate all the nice folk (im)patiently waiting for Book 4 of the Outsider Chronicles.
