Coming Soon - Free Fall

Book Two of the Elementals Series

Loren is in way over her head.

With the portal stones destroyed, she knows there’s no way back to Earth. They’re trapped in Kahsh, a world where dragons and magic exist, and danger lurks in every shadow. It’s a world in sore need of leadership and there’s only one true ruler left to conquer it—Loren.

As the heiress in a long established royal line, it’s up to her to unite the people and bring peace back to their war-torn land. In order to do so, she must overcome her severe uncertainty, learn to use her powers properly, and survive the harsh environment.

But her problems are only beginning. Suspicions of a returning dark threat, a close betrayal, and an unexpected love triangle push Loren to the breaking point.

Can she handle these obstacles, or will she free fall into demise?

Cover Art - Whoa!

Sometimes, when I'm laboring with a photo editor, trying to make some kind of eye-catching, interesting, and professional-looking cover art for my novels and novellas, I get discouraged. I've never been a very artsy type of person. I've never been creative in drawing, or art or anything of that nature.

And to do it digitally? Well, that was just impossible.

But I find myself trying and forever lamenting that my covers are not so great. That they look awful. That they aren't in the same caliber as some professional covers out there.

And then I scroll through Twitter. I see people tweeting and retweeting their cover art, or the cover art of other authors and I can't help but go "whoa". Not because the cover art is so spectacularly stunning, but because of its simplicity.

It really brings it all into perspective for me. My cover art isn't all that bad after all.

Happy New Year!

2015 was a crazy year for me. There were a lot of ups and downs. Most notably, my family lost two very important men, both of which are greatly missed. Our lives just haven't been the same.

On the plus side, I reaffirmed my writing career and self-published two books. 

In 2016, I hope to continue to writing trend and success by publishing more. I suppose you can say my New Year's Resolution is to strive harder in my career by setting aside doable goals and managing my time better. In a sense, I hope to treat writing as if it is my job, without it losing the charm and becoming a daily grind.

What are your New Year's resolutions?
