Release of Lights Fall by Nichelle Rae

I am excited to announce that Nichelle Rae is coming out with a new book. I had the pleasure of reading this book while it was an unpolished gem and I’m excited to announce its release after 2 1/2 years of hard labor.

To celebrate this release our coauthored book, Frost Burn, will be free for two days! Check it out HERE.

Here is the back of the book:

Special Agent Bay Kennedy hunts sex offenders. She credits her unusual abilities as to why she is the best Chicago has to offer – enhanced strength and speed among other things – and she only sleeps once a week.

Her reality is challenged when she’s attacked in her apartment by a malicious creature. Saved by four strangers, Bay soon learns that she has more in common with these supernatural beings than she thinks.

Her rescuers ask Bay to help them keep an ancient evil imprisoned. But her ideals are spurned when she must enter the criminal underground of drug smuggling, weapons exchange, and prostitution.

The five of them have the power to save the world, but can an FBI Agent reconcile working in the criminal underground?

Sounds Fantastic? I agree. So go check it out HERE.

The Sixth Gate Release – Prequel #Free

Hello everyone! After two years of labor I’m very excited to announce the release of The Sixth Gate, book 1 in The Gate Trilogy. This is a Young Adult Dark Fantasy.*

Summary:

The interplanetary gates have existed between the five planets and the Netherworld for as long as living memory.

Dr. Elisabeth Avery is a woman caught between two worlds. Little does she know that others like her, other half-breeds, are being hunted. When a creature drags a princess into the Netherworld, Elisabeth is determined to save her by any means necessary.

Meanwhile, on the planet of Hystera, a Keeper and his assistant investigate a grisly string of suicides and are in need of someone with Elisabeth’s skills. The Gate Guardians and Elisabeth are aware that something is coming and know that it has something to do with the Netherworld bleeding through to the planets, but not why. 

Will Elisabeth be able to come to terms with who she is in time to face the coming threat?

Goodreads

Amazon

In honor of the release of The Sixth Gate I’ve made the prequel free. That’s right – free! If you’d like a short story introduction to The Gate Trilogy – this is the best way to do it. The Gate Guardian’s Daughter introduces Elisabeth when she is a child and her adoptive father Malthael who is a reformed demon.

You can get it here for free: I’m Free on Amazon! Also free on Kindle Unlimited!

*Includes graphic scenes involving suicide.

The Gate Guardian’s Daughter Release!

The Gate Guardian’s Daughter releases today!

I’d like to thank Ellie for the Interview and review. I’d also like to thank Minx for the Review.  Make sure you follow their blogs! For anyone else who was kind enough to take on reviews and for the reviews that already came in (thanks Tabinda) I’d like to extend my appreciation.

Here is the synopsis:

The interplanetary gates require guardians and the reformed demon Malthael is one of them.

His adoptive daughter, Elisabeth, is special, but her dangerous ability hasn’t awoken yet. Malthael knows it will one day and from then on her life will forever be altered. Malthael isolates her from outside world as much to protect everyone else as to safeguard her. It is all he can do to delay the inevitable.

Now that Elisabeth is ten, how long can Malthael keep her confined?

There are two ways to get an eBook copy of The Gate Guardian’s Daughter.

  1. Amazon 
  2. Sign up for my Mailing List and get a free eBook copy.

You can also see reviews from the lovely individuals listed above here on Goodreads.

April – Not Much Time for Reviews

Hello my lovely followers! For those of you waiting for a review from me I’d like to start off by saying – I’m going slower then normal. April has been a crazy month for me. Not only is it my birthday month (yay me!), but I had a symposium where I was a vendor, I had a blog tour (thanks if you chimed in), and my husband is graduating. Woot! So real life has gotten in the way of my usually escapes into wonderful stories. (I don’t own the featured picture it is copyrighted by CB Lightworks but I’m somewhere in there and am posting it only to this blog.)

Reviews

That being said, I’m still working on them and have a few lined up. Here is what is pending in order of my plan to read/review for my next 5 books:

The Fall of the Gods by Nicola Bagala – Finished just need to write a review.

The Secret of Sinbad’s Cave by Brydie Walker Bain – about 25% done.

Not Second Best by Christa Maurice – next in line and I’m looking forward to another romance.

They Mostly Come Out At Night by Benedict Patrick – Love this cover and concept!

The Gift-Knight’s Quest by Dylan Madeley – I am ready for some knights and their quests.

It is always first come first serve – I’ll update this with my next 5 after I finish more reading and more reviews!

Writing

I realized yesterday that I’ve started the 7th to last chapter of my Gate Trilogy. I can barely contain my excitement! I’m pretty sure I yelled “I can’t believe it!” I then proceeded to count it out 5 more times, which promptly lead me to start time-lining out the events for the 3rd and final book. I can’t believe in like 6 or so months I’ll finish writing this trilogy. My face hurts from smiling so much about it.

The Sixth Gate is due out sometime in 2017. It is going through editing by someone who doesn’t have my name and then I’ll post my first chapter up here for your viewing pleasure.

Frost Burn 

For the next week Frost Burn will continue to be free on Kindle Unlimited. If we get enough interest and reads we may leave it up longer – if not I’ll be taking it down off of Kindle Unlimited and putting it back up on Smashwords.

Unfathomable Chance

Unfathomable Chance will come back from the beta readers this month! I’m just out 2 of them. After that it is off to the professional editor! I’m also working on the cover art. I’m hoping to do a cover announcement in June! Check it out here: http://wp.me/P3LyhT-3z

New Year Update – A little late…

Things have been absolutely nuts for me. I accepted a big promotion back in November and there have been so many things to fix and get a handle on. Writing and my blog posts have been worked on whenever I am not bone tired from work (which wasn’t much these last 3 months). That being said here are some updates:

Frost Burn

This beautiful book is finally done. I am so excited to report that it was released the last day of 2015 – December 31st. It is up everywhere and only $0.99 on kindle. We’ve already got some great reviews up and I’m happy to report they are all 3 stars or more!

You can read the first part for #free on #wattpad. Just click on this link: Frost Burn

Love’s Metamorphosis

I’ve completely put this novella up on Wattpad. I won’t be posting about this anymore since it is #complete. It was such fun to put something up for free that wouldn’t have gone anywhere else. I am debating right now what my next Wattpad story should be. ^_^

In Progress Book – The Gate Trilogy

Continued work in progress of the second book. I am happily over 40,000 words in and am about halfway through give or take.For those of you who actually read these posts you’ll notice a change – this is no longer going to be two books but 3. These books have an absolute life of their own and are demanding to be a trilogy. This started off being one book…but then I had a whole plot come to life for a 2nd book and about 35,000 words in to book 2 I realized that the way it was going to end leads directly into a 3rd book. So now I’m half way through book 2 and making notes on what book 3 will look like!

Happy to report that I’ve made progress (mostly in the last 2 weeks) on editing book 1. The Sixth Gate will come out sometime in 2017. I’ll post chapters as they get edited in the next few months or so.

Unfathomable Chance

I’ve settled on a final publish date for Unfathomable Chance – it will be September 2016. It is undergoing final rewrites and beta reading. I’m working with an illustrator to get a cover done for this now that I know exactly what I want. Stay tuned for a posting on the cover reveal!

Unfathomable Chance is a Young Adult Urban Fantasy. You can check out the tentative summary (rewriting that now as well) and one of the chapters here: Unfathomable Chance

Honest Hearts Collection – An Honest Intent (tentative name)

I’m still writing on my second book for the romance collection. These are historical novels across the ages all about romance and overcoming obstacles to make it happen. This is the second book in my planned Honest Hearts Collection. I’ve already started plotting out an outline for the 3rd book.

An Honest Intent (tentative name) is my  more tragic story of the 3 I have planned. It follows Abigail, a young girl who is sold by her greedy uncle for her excellent breeding to a rich merchant. Having to pretend to be something she is not, Abigail is torn between the freedom marriage gets her and the constraints of her own lies. Abigail knew everything she was doing is a risk but she doesn’t expect that she is also risking her heart. This is a bittersweet story of love, betrayal, and being honest with ones heart.

Current word count: 18,000

Taking on Reviews

 

I’ve started reviewing books for my fellow indie authors. Have had some great ones and some okay ones and some not so great ones…but hope to do tons more! You can find my review guidelines: Here.

Reviews done recently:

Gaylord, Adam – Sol of the Coliseum (Fantasy) (Review) (Amazon) (4 stars)

Lopez, Sandra – Beyond the Gardens (Romance) (Review) (Amazon) (2 stars)

Miller, R.G. – The Twins (Mystery) (Review) (Amazon) (3 stars)

Thorpe, Marian – Empire’s Daughter (YA Fantasy) (Review) (Amazon) (3 stars)

I also did a Wattpad book review. Wattpad book reviews are on a completely different scale then published books. They don’t have as stringent requirements nor do I have as ‘high’ expectations in regards to grammar and a polished feel. That being said I expect to be able to read it and still enjoy it as though I was reading a published book.

Uninvited by SheHopes – (Review) (Paranormal – 4.5 Stars)
