So, the second cover for Chaos Time is Done. Why am I telling you this? Because I want you, my readers, to know something very important about this series.

It's been brought to my attention that serials are divided into two camps. Love 'em, hate 'em. Chaos Time is a Serial. I'm telling you this so no one feels upset that they weren't warned ahead of time. I'm telling you right here what you can expect with this series...

Time Travel
YA elements
Romance elements
Cliffhangers (YES, the dreaded cliffhanger)
Epic fantasy
Action and adventure
Dark Paranormal

But not all in the same book. That's important you should know that. This is a long arcing storyline, but here is where I hope you guys are patient with me. This book is a book I've wanted to write for years. A book where I broke lots of literary rules. A book that allowed me to just write a story, no matter where it led me. This is different than Kingdom or Moments, you should know that. But you should also know that the book is done. However, it's soooooo long that were I to release it all at once I would have felt like I needed to charge 9.99 for it. It's really that long. So rather than do that I divided the book into 35k-40k chunks each. So they're not short serials, they're a meaty length novella similar to my Kingdom books so I'd hope you felt like you were getting a story you could sink your teeth into each time.

I have no plans to drag this book to kingdom come just to make extra money off of you. I'm not like that. So this is me giving you warning so if you guys want to wait until it all comes out, that's up to you. And I'm fine with it. Ultimately I'm here to please my readers, not myself.

That said, here is the cover to book 2 which will release next month!

And below is the teaser to Sable:

Part 1: The Gathering


A Memoir


I am born.

I open innocent eyes and take in the beauty of a world with infinite possibility. I am she. I am the start. And the end. I’m birth and death.

Then I meet him.

I love him.

But he takes too much.

He strips me.

I am naked.

I am nothing.

Nothing but hate and vengeance.

He must die.

I am Phoenix, and he will burn.

Happy reading,

I've got a new series beginning next month, book 1 is called Sable and the series is Chaos Time. I love the artwork... what do you think?

This is the blurb:

When Sable Ray sings, people die. She’s spent most of her life locked away to protect others from her curse, abandoned to an insane asylum and the monster in her own head. Lately, though, she’s been having dreams of another time, another life – one where she’s free. Where her power isn’t a curse, but a blessing. And just when she’s sure things can’t get any weirder, she’s confronted by a stranger with eyes as blue as the hottest flame He swears she’s not crazy – in fact, she’s the key to saving the world.

Wanna know why I love Kingdom?

Because I get to write stuff like this:

The lights danced and twirled through a verdant garden of lush green. Thick carpets of moss climbed up the sides of gnarled and knotty, ancient oaks. A gossimer haze enveloped the forest, combined with the fiery bursts of glimmering luminescence; he knew immediately where his desires had led him.
Jericho was spying on the fairy forest.

Moon's Flower is coming VERY VERY SOON! :D I love how imaginative I can get with fairy tales, the impossible is totally possible. That's why I love my Kingdom Series, things I could never get away with in other books I can here. 50 foot frog anyone? LOL...

Happy reading,

Favorite Books

So, it's been a few days since I've posted anything. It's the head cold nightmare spreading all around. But I found I missed you guys, so I'm going to do a few posts for the next few days based on some of my personal favorite books I've recently read. So often I ask you guys to rec books to me, well here are my recs that I absolutely love!

So day 1:

Contemporary Romance

A little known story about a traveling circus and the painted man. A very unusual leading man and I absolutely loved it!

This one just tugged at my heartstrings. A woman dealing with a terrible past and a man who from the outside seems to have it all, but whose demons could threaten to ruin them both. Such a great story!

I cannot speak highly enough about this one! It's one of those books you finish and wish you had never read it just so that you can rediscover it for the first time all over again. It's a story about a true odd couple. She'd loved him from the moment she'd met him, but growing up he did nothing but taunt and bully her. This romance should not work and yet it soooooo does. Highly recommended!


The magic in this book wasn't just the romance which was hot, hot, hot. But its setting. I love Scotland and getting to see it through the characters eyes was just awesome. 

This book was my first foray into New Adult romances and I cannot speak highly enough about the romance. The hero is slightly nerdy, super cool, and the romance so believable. i just loved this book!

Next time I'll be spotlighting some of my favorite YA novels! 

Happy reading,
