Vengeance Borne Cover and Blurb!

September 3rd is right around the corner and I'm super stoked to put VENGEANCE BORNE (Sentry of Evil #1) out into the world. Here's the official cover art and blurb. And it's up on Goodreads, too! You can add it to your Want to Read shelf by clicking here.

Fated to Fight...
As the local hunter, and a ward of the Sentry, a secret organization dedicated to eradicating the forces of evil, Jacquelyn has been protecting the small town of McCall, Idaho for the past five years. The hours are horrible, the pay is nonexistent, she has to work with her jealous ex-boyfriend – and forget about quitting.  She’s in for life.

Destined to See…
When a rugged drifter comes through town, Jacquelyn immediately knows what he is – an Empath who can read emotions and sense what others are thinking – even though it’s clear the handsome stranger has no idea what, or how powerful, he is…
A Town in Peril…
When people in McCall start turning up dead, viscously ripped to shreds as if by a wild animal, Jacquelyn knows better. Furies are loose in Idaho and hell-bent on exacting revenge.  But against whom?  And for what purpose?  Jacquelyn has until the full moon to stop the Furies’ killing spree and save the people of McCall, figure out how to work with her ex – oh, and there’s a handsome stranger in town who’s in desperate need of some schooling…

Work in Progress Song of the Week

I haven't done one of these in a while, but this is absolutely the theme song of my WIP. The lyrics are spot on! I'll be releasing the as of yet untitled trilogy this summer, an new adult UF that features vampires, werewolves, damphirs, ancient enemies, secrets, and forbidden love. What can I say? I'm a sucker for star crossed lovers.

What's Been Going On

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been as around on-line as much lately. I've had my nose to the grindstone for the past four months, working my ass off, and hoping that I wouldn't have to write this post. I've been getting a lot of questions lately about the next book in the Shaede Assassin series. When is the release date? Why wasn't there a teaser at the end of CRAVE THE DARKNESS? How many books are in the series's future?

Unfortunately, Signet won't be moving forward with the Shaede Assassin series. It's a business decision on their part. One that I understand, though it saddens me. But since I can't simply leave Darian hanging without the opportunity to get her shit together once and for all, I'm determined to publish future books in the series. I have to see the story through to the end for my own peace of mind as much as for Darian's. She saved my bacon when I was down and out and I owe her that much.

Though I can't give you a definite release date yet, I do know that book four (as yet untitled) will be out in the first part of 2014. If you're a subscriber to my newsletter, you'll get a sneak peak at the first chapter very soon, and I hope to have cover art as well in the months to come. I'm actually really excited about taking over the reins in regards to the Shaede Assassin world. I've promised a Raif spin-off for a year, and now, I'll have the opportunity to write his book. Kaii (the assassin from Tyler's novella) could also get a book. The possibilities are endless and I'm ready to write them all!

In the meantime, I'm busy doing what I love. Writing. In addition to the Shaedes series, I'm working on a a new adult paranormal trilogy that will be available this summer and a new urban fantasy novel in a brand new series that will be available in digital format and POD later in the fall. I'll be posting more in-depth updates as soon as I can with teasers, cover art, and actual release dates.

I want to thank all of the readers who've supported me the past couple of years and those of you who are still rooting for Darian. Word of mouth really is the best advertisement a book can get and assures readers continue to see new installments. If you loved the series, tell your friends! Spread the book love around. Write a review even if it's just a few sentences. It matters and it really does make a difference.

In the meantime, I'll try to be a better social networker. I've got months worth of goat-related tweets to catch up on! ;)

Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful

I've been wanting to post on this, but I've held my tongue because I wasn't sure how it might be interpreted. I've been a listening ear for someone really close to me for a while now, though, and my indignation has risen to point that I feel I need to just get it all out, you know? So here it is:

Why in the hell is it frowned upon for a woman to be confident or even a little arrogant?

I just don't get it. Women can be so self-deprecating! And why? I'm too fat. Too old. Too short. Too tall. I'm not smart enough, strong enough, capable enough. I'm just not pretty. I hate my hair. I want to get rid of these ugly freckles. I wish I looked more like you. I'd kill for her body, style, wit, etc. He doesn't really like me, he just feels sorry for me. It's a pity date and nothing more. I bet he lost a bet or something. 

Seriously, it just makes me sad. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm guilty of the same thing occasionally. But why? Are we, as women, conditioned to put ourselves down? Why are we looked upon by others (other women especially) as being a bitch if we embrace something that we like about ourselves? Why is it a sin to admit that we think we might be good looking, or have a nice body? Is it so horrible to own the fact that we're clever, or say to ourselves, "Yeah, I'm short. But I've got grace and a killer center of balance!" or "Check out my biceps. I've been working out for months and they're sexy!"

Why is owning your beauty, brains, style, or whatever such a crime?

The most hated heroines in books are those who come across as over-confident. Comments like, "She's such a bitch." or "God, could this character be any more conceited?!? She's so annoying, I wish she'd just die already." abound. But when a male character or even a guy in real life exudes the same confidence, it's sexy. The same disdain shown for the confident female turns into, "I love alpha males!" or "He's got this arrogance that I just can't get enough of!" 

So, as women, we admire confidence in men, but we loathe it ourselves???? 

In the eighties, there was this commercial with Kelly LeBrock where she said, "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful." I remember my mom complaining every time it came on. "I HATE that commercial," she'd groan. "That woman drives me up a wall!" Okay, let's face it: Kelly LeBrock is totally beautiful. And women around the world (my mom included) hated her for it for the simple fact that she was owning it. On national TV. It's okay to be beautiful, I guess, as long as you tell everyone that you think you look like troll. But as soon as you say, I'm actually pretty good-looking, you're suddenly a pariah.

Women! Own your beauty! Be confident in yourselves! Be courageous enough to not only think, but admit out loud that YOU ARE THE SHIT! And quit hating on women who've already discovered the power and allure that being confident brings. Just like we admit that confidence is sexy in a man, men are saying the same thing. "I LIKE a confident woman."

Every single one of us is beautiful, talented, smart, and sexy. Accept it. Believe it. Own it.
