One to love. One to lead. One to Fear. Leslie Kingmaker has three weeks to choose a leader for the supernatural community, find her soul mate and break a curse. To make matters worse, the three candidates vying for leadership and her heart – a werewolf, fae and vampire – won’t tell her what she needs to know to navigate the trials. One of them is supposed to betray her, and all she has to guide her is the obscure, rambling commentary in the Book of Secrets, an ancient tome that’s been in her family for two thousand years.

She soon discovers the candidates aren’t the ones on trial – she is. The family curse is a threat to the supernatural community, and the three candidates have sworn to do whatever it takes to break the curse, even if it means killing her. In a race to understand the ancient spell that befell her family, and struggling not to lose her heart to any of the sexy, brilliant men in the process, Leslie must defy the odds and end the curse if she is to survive the trials.

Theta

ThetaAlessandra, the Oracle of Delphi, is under the control of the Supreme Magistrate, a madman determined to use her goddess-like powers to conquer deities and humans alike. Unable to confront him as she would like to, she bides her time and learns the political ropes while trying to save as many lives as possible. The implant linking her telepathically to the Supreme Magistrate begins to pull her into his madness, until she can no longer tell reality from the fictitious world he has created. With her allies exiled beyond the walls, Alessandra turns to Lantos, the Supreme Priest, a demigod as likely to betray her as help her. Lantos promises to help her on one condition – a condition she’s initially unwilling to accept.

Outside of Washington DC, Phoibe, the Silent Queen, struggles to control her rebellion. The army is fractured and unwilling to follow a teenage queen against the military might the Supreme Magistrate has spent years building. Just when she’s about to give up, she finds support where she least expects to: in the very gods she swore to expel from Earth. They’ll help her, if she calls off her war against them.

The Grotesque Prince, Adonis, has spent his life not knowing who he is. On a journey of self-discovery mandated by the goddess Artemis, he returns to the lands he once ruled. Amidst the rubble and destruction caused by the gods, he uncovers the plaque the goddess tasked him to find. Once he reads it, he understands too well the danger he’s placed everyone around him in, especially Alessandra, who woke him from slumber without understanding the consequences of such an action.

The Omega Series saga continues! “Silent Queen” releases March 4!

The much-anticipated continuation of the Omega Series is here! As with the Omega Beginnings Miniseries, the four episodes (novelettes) in the Theta Beginnings Miniseries will be released monthly leading up to the launch of second main book in the series, “Theta.” This Miniseries is set five years before “Omega,” at the onset of the Holy Wars.

The miniseries episodes will be available in EBOOK FORMAT ONLY until all four are released, at which point, the paperback containing all the episodes will be released. The four episodes are tentatively titled: Silent Queen, Mercenary, Shadow Titan, People’s Champion. Details on the paperback will be available 30-60 days before release.

Silent Queen

Red satin ribbon curling over black background.

Summary: On the night of Crown Princess Phoibe’s coronation in New York, she is granted two guardians to assist her reign from among the many gods and goddesses in the Greek pantheon. Artemis, as expected, remains her fervent protector, but the identity of her second guardian is an unsettling omen of what is to come. His sudden involvement in her life marks dramatic change not only for her, but for the world.

No sooner is her new protector appointed than the longstanding peace between humanity and gods is shattered. The fourteen-year-old Queen of Greece faces a grim reality: there may be no one left alive to stop the gods from destroying everyone, if she doesn’t turn to her unwanted protector for help.

EpicTeenFiction.com – coming soon

I had a thought earlier this year. As an entrepreneur, I’m hit with tons of BRILLIANT IDEAS! all the time, but most tend to wash out when I look at them in depth.

One of those that has stuck with me: if you’re an author trying to research your genre/demographic, where do you go? Is there one place or a billion? Because I go to a billion to find out what’s trending, what the outlook is for the next 12-24 months, what’s been optioned or in production for film, what authors and genres are being picked up for publishing deals etc.

If you’re a reader looking for updates on all things book released (fandoms, movies based on your fave books, what’s hottest selling in your fave genres, what’s coming up, what’s going on with your authors, etc.), where do you go?

Why can’t you go to ONE FREAKING SPOT to get the information you want?

So, for teen books (which I’m defining as young adult and new adult), I decided there needs to be one website where you can find the information you want. It’s called EpicTeenFiction, and it’ll be a free site that consolidates – at a high level – what’s going on across the industry (indie, small press, traditional, etc.) in one place.

It’ll have additional features as well, to include columns organic to the site, fandom consulting services for authors, bloggers and authors corners, and features of member authors and bloggers.

Our IT folks have the framework in place. This size of a site requires dedicated servers and some other fancy stuff, so it’ll be a few months before it’s up and running, but I’ve been assured it can be created according to the dream I have for it!

I’ll keep everyone updated!

Beyond the basics: tips for writers

A billion or more books, articles, posts, and other references about the mechanics of writing, how to self-publish or query agents/publishers and so on, pop up when you Google anything about writing. This post is about what I’ve come to term ‘the soft skills,’ which have more to do with your mindset and relationship with writing rather than the mechanics or craft itself.

This post is dedicated to @yhollieann from Twitter, who asked me for some advice on pushing through her frustration with writing.

These rules seem simple but have taken me years to figure out! At the end of the day, how you approach your writing and how you view yourself as a storyteller are as crucial to your success as the books you write.

  1. Write. Always. Anything. No matter what the length, topic, tropes, etc. Just write freely without judgment.
  1. Surround yourself with supportive, positive people, be they beta readers, editors, fans, etc. All feedback should be given in a constructive, loving, supportive manner.
  1. Challenge yourself. Experiment with your writing style, with descriptions, dialogue, events, even how/when you write. Change something every time you start a new book just to see what happens.
  1. Plot holes, flat characters, trite dialogue, rushed storytelling – these are all opportunities to grow. They’re positives, because they challenge you to grow as a writer. Learn to spot them and then thank them for giving you an opportunity to grow before you fix them!
  1. Your style is unique to you. It will resonate with the right readers – your readers. Your core readers are as much a part of your world as your characters. Love them equally.
  1. Create a relationship with your writing. One built on respect, love, understanding and above all – appreciation for every story. Like people, stories can be flawed and still beautiful. Each story is part of you in some way and also helps you grow. Love it and the process.
  1. Bring only positivity to your workspace. There’s no room for doubt, self-loathing, or any other emotion that interferes with your ability to create.
  1. You’re putting your soul on paper for others to read. This makes you extremely brave. Remember this always. You are brave. You are amazing. You are courageously following your dream.
  1. When needed, find a mentor. Someone who can help your writing grow in a positive, supportive way. When in doubt, read. Books are the best mentors out there.
  1. Did I mention write? Write, write, write!
