Hey all I am back! Not only am I celebrating my release today of Port Stone Book Two: Delmar's Demise! But I am also helping the awesome Ember Leigh celebrate the cover reveal for her upcoming release, Breaking the Fall!
Breaking The Fall, book #5 in the Breaking Series by Ember Leigh, is coming NOVEMBER 30th!
Pre-order here à http://mybook.to/breaking-the-fall
This sizzling accidental pregnancy romance (set in the sexy MMA world of Holt Body Fitness) will be releasing right into Kindle Unlimited, too!
A weekend of passion. An accidental baby. A lifelong love she wasn’t looking for.
In the live music industry, Eddie Valenzuela’s seen enough bands to know what good really sounds like. During one wild night out, he collides headfirst with an up-and-coming singer who puts ‘good’ to shame. She’s got the voice, the look, and holy hell, the body too. But after a sizzling weekend together, the singer who seemed like Mrs. Right turns out to be Mrs. Not Quite Right when she disappears without so much as an Instagram handle.
Fiona Frank’s only goal in life was to make it big doing what she loved: playing music. And her hard work paid off, in the form a big-time record deal that has her doing TV shows, radio spots, and even her first international tour. Her career is built on spurning love and staying single, though she’s never been opposed to the occasional lover. As long as they don’t last. And she’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that the world falls in love with The Sin Girl.
But she wasn’t ready for the positive pregnancy test on her first international tour. There’s only one man that could be the father: Eddie. While Fiona grapples with the next steps, Eddie is determined to make a family out of the three of them. But if the label finds out that she’s not only pregnant but seeing someone, then its goodbye stardom.
Which means she has to figure out how to break her fall.
BREAKING THE FALL is a stand-alone in the interconnected books of the Breaking series with no cliff-hanger and a guaranteed HEA (that will probably make you cry a little). Add it to Goodreads here: http://bit.ly/breaking5G

Port Stone Book Two Delmar's Demise:
Port Stone Dangers of the Swamp
Want a little taste of Delmar's Demise? Here is an exclusive excerpt.
Over a month had passed since Tianna had arrived in Port Stone, more time than she had ever intended to spend in the city. Yet here she was, living in a small home with a human warrior, her one friend in the city, Kara. If not for the cleric in her life she thought she would have gone insane already. Well and Kara was not her only friend.
Tianna looked over at the small rat whom she had adopted as her familiar in the city. Little Ara had proved to be the most effective friend and spy in such a place. No one noticed one lone rat running around in all the filth of the slums, and her small size meant she went unnoticed even in the rich parts of town, sticking to the shadows and hiding amongst the trash of the city. Ara could get into places and report what she heard more effectively than any other creature could. She had provided Tianna and Kara much information in their short stay in Port Stone. More than they would have discovered on their own.
Tianna looked back down at the piece of paper in her hand, but even loyal Ara couldn’t help her figure this out. She wished Kara would return home and open the letter waiting for her. Tianna wanted to compare their messages, see if Kara had been told more than she had by the leader of her Druid Order, Shea. Her frustration grew as she read the letter once again.
I cannot tell you how saddened I am to hear of Phinelope’s passing. You have done me proud by avenging her death. I am glad you have stayed in Port Stone and have already connected with Delmar. I need you to stay in the city awhile longer. You need to continue the work Phinelope started. Speak with Delmar again for he knows the plan. I will return to Port Stone as soon as I can, and then we can discuss everything in person. In the meantime, keep an eye out for those who might want to do you harm.
Crumbling the paper Tianna threw it across the small kitchen in a fit of anger, just in time to narrowly miss hitting the returning Kara in the head. “I just arrived, so I can’t be the reason for your bad mood. What happened?” Kara asked as she picked up Shea’s note and returned it to the table. She then unhooked and set her war hammer down in the corner by the door, near Tianna’s own bow and arrows and assorted swords both women had picked up of late.
“We received letters from our respective Orders. Shea basically told me nothing other than to trust Delmar. The problem is that I don’t trust that man! Shea gave no other information on him, no reason to trust him. She says she will come when she can, but gives me no time table. The whole letter is pointless and frustrating to read.” Tianna huffed. “You have a letter as well. Let’s see if your Cleric Order gave you more information.”
I'm trying to get back to showing some love for other authors and artists on my blog and I thought who better to share with you than one of my favorite authors and human beings, Leona Bushman! Here is her exciting historical dark romance Darkest series! I absolutely love the creepy yet romantic atmosphere that she has created with these novels. Grab one or all three, you won't be disappointed!
From Book 1: Death and destruction haunts The Dark Duke.
Left unchaperoned and stranded, Lady Lillian Lancaster has no choice but to find her way home, and quickly before her reputation is ruined. Betrayed by those closest, she’s forced to trust the daring rogue who rushes to her rescue.
When the Dark Duke reveals his identity and proposes a false engagement in exchange for further protection, Lillian is concerned and intrigued—yet enamored by the shadows which haunt his eyes and fuel the horrid whispers behind his back.
Clarence, Duke of Canterbury, knows his father’s death was no suicide and will stop at nothing to clear the family’s shame.
He can’t believe his good fortune when he stumbles upon the niece of the very man he suspects is responsible. Not only does she hold the connections he needs to uncover explicit proof, but the very means to seeking revenge. However, the more time he spends wooing Lillian’s trust, the more he begins to doubt his ability to enact the plan.
Can their fake engagement stand up to dark family secrets? Or will revenge win out and shatter both their lives?
So it has been a bit and I am sorry for being away so long. Yes I meant to pull back but not to disappear. The past 8 days my apartment building was being re-tarred and the fumes made my apartment unlivable, so I was forced to turn my life upside down for a bit. But thank goodness that appears to be over and I am here to share some exciting news! The second book in my Port Stone fantasy series is now available for preorder and will be out November 15! You can grab a copy for only .99 cents! The third and final book in the series will be out next year!
Tianna and Kara are now in Port Stone for the foreseeable future, commanded by their Orders to stay and help the duplicitous Delmar on his secret mission. The problem is neither trust the man, or anyone in Port Stone for that matter. The more they hear from others the more questions they have. Once wizards are introduced to the equation, well neither woman knows who to believe. These two warrior women continue their search for truth and justice in Port Stone: Book Two Delmar's Demise.
Long time no see... I know it's been awhile since I posted. A lot has been going on in my life and I have decided to restructure some things and pull back on some writing and writing related things, like this blog. I am still going to blog, but maybe only a few time a month. I am still writing, but cutting myself some slack and going to only work on 1-4 projects a year. This means I will only have one more release this year, the sequel to Port Stone: Dangers of the Swamp should be out about mid-November! I hope to have the cover and preorder link up for you soon! Then next year I might actually have 4 releases, that remains to be seen. I am really going to focus on the quality of what I put out and not worry about the quantity part anymore at all. I am also moving towards other focuses in my life, like getting my personal trainer certification and working on growin on YouTube, plus working more on my art and painting. I will still be around, just maybe a little bit less. I hope my readers understand and still support me.
Did you all know that I have an ASMR channel over on YouTube? Well I do. I talk about life, books, writing, painting and all things nerdy. Here is a little one of me painting some game miniatures, which are some of my most requested videos. So please take a look and see what ASMR is all about.
The past few months I have been dealing with some pretty bad anxiety issues. It is the worst when I am out and about trying to be social. Social anxiety is nothing to laugh at, even though sometimes out in public people do make fun of it. So I have really been trying to work on myself and my anxiety lately. How you might ask? Well through exercise, making yoga a priority, making time for art, making time for myself by reading and relaxing, and by keeping busy. Is it working? Maybe. I am a work in progress, as we all are. Do I feel like I am better? A little. But am I still struggling? Yes. I hope that with more time spent on myself, by taking better care of myself physically and mentally, that some of my anxiety will start to lessen. Hopefully that will in turn help me with my writing, which has been waning slightly waning of late. I just wanted to write this post to keep people up to date, let you all know why some writing news has been delayed, and to let everyone know that there is no need to be ashamed of having anxiety or any other mental health issue.
Looking for some good paranormal audio books to listen to now that the days are growing shorter? I have a couple reviews of books that you might want to check out.
What if you were a supernatural creature but didn't know it? That is the premise of Demons and Wraiths, an excellent paranormal thriller that is packed with mystery and action. This is a fast paced story with excellent narration that leaves you wanting more. I hope that there are more books in this series very soon. 5/5 stars!
This is a great paranormal historical fantasy, packed with action and heart. I love the strong female protagonist of this story, a woman with magic, but it's more the power of her mind and her love of those close to her that make her so powerful. This is such a great fantasy story that I just want to read more of. 5/5 stars!
I am excited to finally be creating art again! Right now I am gearing up for an art market that I am participating in next month right before Halloween, which of course means a lot of Halloween art! Here is a little zombie mermaid watercolor that I just did. I think she is fun and perfect for the season. It's been awhile since I have been painting and it feels really good to be back at it! She is for sale, only $10!
Looking for a new series to sink your teeth into? Love sexy and naughty Greek gods? Then check out my Gods Behaving Badly series. More Books to come next year.
Gods Behehaving Badly Series
(6 book series)
From Book 1: Sophia longs for the days when she was worshiped as a goddess and celebrated for her glory. Now she hides in plain sight and does what she must to keep the lifestyle she is accustomed. She has never been close to discovery until one New York City Detective, Bruce Stoker, enters the picture. Now all that she is and has done could come out into the open and destroy everything. She should disappear, but there is something different about this man that draws her to him.
Detective Bruce Stoker has never had an unsolved case, but there is something different about these art heists. Money is taken, but art is given to museums. Strange. If he can find the beautiful woman who seems to be the common link, then everything should be simple. That is what he thought at least until he met the gorgeous suspect in question.
Author, artist, jewelry maker and all around creative person. I write in many genres and have a lot of fun doing so. Please take a look around and enjoy!
