Better 'Ink Twice

I'm not ready to reveal the cover for this one yet, but it's gorgeous and I know you're going to love it as much as I do! Book two in the Touch Of Ink series is coming along - a little slower than I'd hoped but we're still on target for a 2019 release. I'm hoping by HallowRead. I'd love to see first run print editions sitting on my table for that event. Lol!

Adeline's got a long road ahead of her, going up against the Magistrate and taking down Winslow. Challenges in her magical life aren't all she'll face. There's trouble brewing in her personal life too! But no spoilers! I won't give any secrets away for anyone who hasn't read 'Ink It Over yet.

Don't forget to grab you tickets for HallowRead 2019 this year. Looks like it's going to be a sellout with the amazing Sherrilyn Kenyon in the house! There's great sponsors, and panels! You do not want to miss out!

Oh, and sharing for a friend! The Cursed Key is running a pre-order special you don't want to miss either. Just $0.99 for this New Adult Urban Fantasy! Grab a copy on sale while you cane!

Rachel Reads

A new feature I added to my monthly newsletter is Rachel Reads. It's basically my TBR pile. There are so many great books out right now. There are days where I think I can't possibly read them all. But, like any good bibliophile, I am up for the challenge of trying! A few that are on my radar right now -
Patricia Briggs Storm Cursed releases in a few days and I cannot wait. The Mercy Thompson series has been on my one click list forever!
Dannika Dark's Moonstruck releases in June. I'm reading Nevermore right now to get caught up on the Crossbreed series. IF you haven't started this series yet you are missing out! Raven kicks ass.
The Cursed Key by Rebecca Hamilton and Miranda Brock is a pre-order I just clicked. I don't typically do pre-orders (I have no logical explanation for this) but the premise - Laura Croft meets Ilona Andrews? Yes please!!! Needless to say I am eagerly awaiting this one! There are snipets on Wattpad now to hold you over!
How To Wake an Undead City by Hailey Edwards is another one click June release! Summer reading never looked so good!! This series became a one click for me with the first book!

I'd love to hear what books are on your summer reading or tbr lists!

Long Time No See

It's been awhile since my last blog post and here's why. So much has changed in just a few - well several, actually - months. A lot of my readers know that my day job running the family business was impacted after two flash flood in eighteen months. Shortly after my last post I wrapped up the procedure of closing that business and got back to focusing on my writing. But if there's on thing I've learned in my forty-one years it's that life finds a way for shenanigans. A couple months after that the #bigmove began with news my husband's plant was closing and we would be transferring to a new plant out of state. We're still in the process! It's been crazy. Somehow, and I have no idea how, I managed to release two books during that time. 'Ink It Over book one in the Touch of Ink trilogy came out in January while I was driving a twenty-seven foot truck seven hundred miles through snow, ice and then rain to our new temporary home. Yikes! Rotten Luck, a stand alone novel, released in March while I was still washing paint out of my hair from working on our house here to prepare it for market. It's since been listed. But life hasn't slowed down. Something I am sure all of you can relate to! I'm busy getting my ducks in a row for a winter release. That will make 2019 my first ever three book release year. Fingers crossed I can hit my goal! I'm admittedly a slow writer. But it feels like things are getting back to some semblance of normal. **insert new shenanigan here**

Soul To Keep, a new novella

New release alert! A Soul To Keep will be coming to ebook retailers near you in September 10th! Allow me to introduce to you, Angelica Wright.

Reapers always play for keeps.
Reap what you sow. That's been Angelica Wright's motto since joining the Department of Soul Acquisitions as a Reaper. It's served her well over the years, a reminder the mortals who end up in her case files sealed their fate when they signed their deal with the Devil. reapers have one job - collecting souls - and Angelica is good at her job.
And then a Necromancer moves into town and takes up collections of his own. Competition is good for any business but there's just one problem - the souls in question are innocents and that just won't do.
Thrust into a partnership with Jackson Reed, the silver-tongued seller of salvation who's been on her tail and poaching her collections, Angelica has her hands full.
In order to chase down the necro, she'll have to work with the Sin Eater who's been chasing after her for months or the Reaper may end up reaped herself....

Angelica and Jackson were fun to write and I can't wait for you to read them!

1970- The Seven

Sarah M. Cradit is an author who's on my new release watch list and her latest book is no exception!

Seven siblings. Seven years. Seven spellbinding novels.
New Orleans. The seven Deschanel siblings live with their long suffering mother in a historic Garden District mansion. Each of them unique. Each of them born with a gift.  In some cases, a gift they wish they could give back.
When August Deschanel died, he left his wife - Irish Colleen - with more than seven children to raise. She was left with a job she was never prepared for: raising his heirs in a world she didn't understand. She'd never seen true magic, not before marrying into the most prominent  - and mysterious - family in New Orleans. Now she can't escape it.
Irish Colleen knows a terrible secret. Her youngest, a prophet, has seen a future that is unavoidable: the Deschanels will not leave 1970 without losing one if the seven. She knows only that it will happen, but not when... or to whom.
Charles the playboy heir apparent. Augustus, the family fixer. Colleen, the unfailing pragmatist. Madeline, the bleeding heart. Evangeline, the genius. Maureen, the dreamer. Elizabeth, the tortured one.
One of her children must die and Irish Colleen can do nothing to stop it.

This sounds fantastic and I for one cannot wait to read it!
