Kiera’s Sun

Kieras Sun

Sequel to “Kiera’s Moon.” Includes the novelette, “Kiera’s Home”

Kiera accompanies A’Ran to the toxic surface of Anshan to assess just how bad things are and whether or not she really can help the damaged planet heal. When she returns, she is faced with a larger challenge, one that threatens her newfound life and home, one too terrible to reveal to A’Ran, who has placed his hope and that of his people in her.

Together, they must find a way to restore Anshan’s life force, before it’s too late to save the planet – and Kiera.

Available from: Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Kobo, Smashwords

The Anshan Saga (Kiera’s Moon & Kiera’s Sun)

The Anshan Saga

When starving artist Kiera wakes up on board a spaceship, she panics. Her best friend has dragged her across the universe to help her find a man and a life – without asking her if she wanted either. During an attempt to escape and return home, she ends up hooking up with is a battle-hardened warrior prince living in exile who recognizes her for what she is: the key to winning back his planet.

Calculating, cautious A’Ran knows he needs Kiera as his lifemate to heal his planet and his war weary people. Accustomed to dealing with the shrewd politics of the Five Galaxies, he’s not expecting his sweet, lost little Earthling to challenge him, let alone be his equal. He discovers almost too late what he risks losing if he can’t learn to be more than a warrior.

Their love for one another will be tested as they fight for their people, their planet, and their future.

Twisted Fate (#5, Rhyn Eternal Series) Links and cover coming soon!

Summary:

Stranded as a mortal after Karma decided to balance him, Fate faces the challenge of living out life as one of the humans he normally mocks. His first problem: all the other deities, demons and Immortals who want payback for him messing with their futures now knows he’s vulnerable. But it’s his second issue he doesn’t know exactly how to handle. There’s this girl. She’s special. She might hold the key to helping him win back his position as a deity.

Except she can’t stand him, and no amount of fake charm is going to convince her he’s worth saving. Fate isn’t certain he’s ready to let anyone see his true nature, even if walking away from her means he has to find another way back to his deity status.

Stephanie doesn’t think twice about the handsome, enigmatic man she crosses paths with at a book festival in the swanky coastal town of Carmel. He’s the kind of perfect, privileged, patronizing jerk she’s met more than once in her life. She definitely isn’t happy about having to rescue him from a freakish looking gang of men. She outright laughs when the man with the beautiful eyes claims their attackers were demons – and she’s now on their hit list for helping him.

Soon, Fate’s words prove true, and they’re both faced with a choice: do they trust one another with their lives in the hopes of surviving? Or do they take their chances on their own?

Highlander Enchanted

Highlander Enchanted_fbSummary: Lady Isabel de Clare is on the run – and out for revenge against the man she blames for her brother’s death in the Crusades and her father’s descent into madness. When she finds Black Cade, she isn’t expecting him to protect her from the English fiancé she’s fleeing. She also doesn’t believe the tales of fae and magic, until she uncovers a secret one night while under Black Cade’s protection.

At first intrigued by the soft-spoken yet strong Isabel, Black Cade is soon faced with a difficult decision: protect her against her enemies despite knowing she’s there to kill him or leave her to deal with an abusive man out to steal her title and gold. When his secret is revealed, he decides to trap the beautiful Englishwoman in a loveless marriage to guarantee her silence and his life.

Neither expects their hearts – or lives – to be threatened by the union, until danger breaks out in the Highlands, pitting fae against human, English against Scottish, husband against wife.

Will the love of Isabel and Cade be enough to bring peace the Highlands?

Random thoughts on marketing and Omega

First of all, I’m back to blogging after a long absence where I used my site for reviews/book features to help other authors!

But … time to go back to the basics in some areas while also hopping on the world domination train in others!

Random thoughts …

I was thinking about buying ads. It seems like indies/small presses would benefit from marketing co-ops. Basically, everyone chipping in to buy a huge/expensive ad. A $5k ad divided among 5-10 authors is much more reasonable than someone shelling out the full sum. Who had $5k for an ad anyway?! Seems like a marketing co-op would be something worth trying.

Working on the “Omega” marketing plan. I have a ton of different things I’d like to try with this book. Teen magazines, premier blog tour companies, booktubers, bookstagrammers, trad magazine ads, trad review sources … the list is endless. I started with purchasing paperback ARCs to hand out at conventions over the summer. I’m super excited about this!

I feel like “Omega” has insane potential, so the struggle has been figuring out how to break into the national level and identify opportunities for insane exposure. I’m talking to someone Friday who might be able to help me with this. Fingers crossed, I learn something fantastic and new!
