Famine Description and Teaser

The description for Famine (The Four Horsemen #3) is here! In addition to that, I decided to throw in a little teaser! To be honest, I debated whether or not to share this teaser with you all since I'm still at the stage of the novel where it's all a hot mess, and a lot will probably change. Still, I figured I'd give you a tiny snippet to hold you over until the new year. Enjoy! Famine Description Ana de Silva always assumed she’d die young, she just never expected it to be at the hands of Famine, the haunting immortal who once spared her life so many years ago. But if the horseman remembers her at all, he must not care, for when she comes face to face with him for the second time in her life, she’s stabbed and left for dead. Only, she doesn’t quite die. If there’s one thing Famine is good at, it’s cruelty. And how these blighted bastards deserve it. Try as he might, he can’t forget what they once did to him. But when Ana, a ghost from his past, corners him and

The Audiobook for War is Now Out (Oh, and Some Other News too!)

Hey there readers! So excited to give you all the updates! Since this is a long and rambling post (I figured it's nice to have one of those every once in awhile!), here's the Spark Notes version: The audiobook for War (The Four Horsemen #2) is now available here on Amazon , here on Audible , and here on Apple Books . You can buy signed copies of my books here at the ApollyCon bookstore . (They won't be mailed out until March 2020.) I'm making progress on Famine (The Four Horsemen #3) and two other secret projects. Join me and several other authors and artists as we do a read along of Holly Black's Folk of the Air series here on Facebook. The Long Post Begins ... Now that you've all officially been warned, let's do this long-ass update! Happy October! It's officially my favorite month because so many of my favorite people have birthdays this month, including my son, whom I just gave birth to at the beginning of the month! October also

War (The Four Horsemen #2) is Out Now!

War (The Four Horsemen #2) is now out!!! You can find it here . Oh my gosh, I can hardly believe it’s out myself! There were weeks where I wasn’t sure this book would EVER finish. But I’m SO excited to share it with you all! There’s a lot I want to say about War and Miriam, but I’ll keep this short because if you are, in fact, planning on snagging a copy of War , then you have a lot of reading ahead of you already! I’ll probably do a Facebook Live post in another week or two—once people have read the book—to chat with you all about War . Until then, I hope you enjoy the book! Oh, and here are a few updates on the other versions of the book: Paperback and Audiobooks I’m still in the process of getting the paperback book formatted. Only once I know the book’s official page count will my cover designer be able to make the wraparound cover for War. (The width of the book spine depends on the number of pages in the book.) I have no clue how long it will take—my husband formats

War Will Release July 11

Sorry I've been MIA on here! For the last several weeks--okay, let's be honest, for the last several months --I've been manically trying to finish this novel for you all. Originally it was supposed to be released in April ... then that date got pushed to May ... then I was determined to get it to you all by June ... and here we are in July. It's finally, finally at a place where I can give it a hard release date, and July 11 is approximately 9 days from now--yippee!!! I think I've briefly mentioned that some of my release schedule setbacks have had to do with personal issues. I had a solid three months of back-to-back flus, colds, and infections that my dear, sweet spawn gave me, so the shear number of sick days I had to take this winter and spring was staggering. Combine that with a few personal tragedies and a high risk pregnancy (still pregnant over here, and I'm missing coffee like it's a limb I've lost), and the time's just slipped by me. 

War Release Update

AAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!! War is finally written!!!! YAAAASSSS!!! Alright, trying to rein in my excitement, but I wasn't sure I'd ever get this book fully written. At 129,000 words it's the longest book I've ever written, and over twice as long as the first book I ever published. Okay, pulling myself together. So, I promised news on this. This is the first part of the news--that the book is completely written. However, I have literally hundreds of edits waiting for me, and two more rounds of editorial read-throughs that I have to do before I pass this baby on to other eyes. In the past, it's taken me a month or two to get through my edits. I don't know if it'll take me that long with this one since my writing process this time around was a little different (aka, my first draft is way more thorough), but it is a much longer book than some of my previous ones. So, when WILL War be published? Short answer--as soon as I'm done with my edits. Maybe that will be

War: Cover Reveal, Description, and Teaser

Hi readers! I'm so, so, SO excited to finally share the cover for War (The Four Horsemen #2), along with the description and a teaser! I'm still working on the novel, and I hope to have it out by April/May! From the looks of it, it's going to be a loooooong book. I have my word count bar on the right measuring my progress, and I think it's going to be well over 100,000 words. (I don't know why I can't seem to write a short book these days!) Alright, onto the really fun stuff! Cover reveal Are you ready to meet War? Omg! I'm so giddy to share this one with you! Alright, here it is: I am absolutely in love with it! The insanely talented Regina Wamba of Mae I Design designed it for me and she deserves all the props! Description They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and t

So Much News: The Print and Audiobook of Dark Harmony, The Fallen World Book Bundle, and a Deleted Scene from Dark Harmony

Hey readers! Alright everyone, hold onto your knickers because this is a long post (but full of really awesome news--so yay!). And if you read all the way to the bottom, you'll get rewarded with a deleted scene from Dark Harmony (but a spoiler-y one at that, so don't tempt yourself if you haven't finished the series first)! Dark Harmony Paperback and Audiobook are Now Available So, so, so excited to announce that both the print book and the audiobook of Dark Harmony (The Bargainer #3) are available to purchase! I know this has taken forever to happen, and I'm so sorry for that. I'm pretty sure that every single step in the pipeline got delayed. Some of this was my fault, and some of it was out of my hands. Buuuut, for those of you who've been waiting for the paperback versions of Dark Harmony and/or the audiobook, both are available. You can find the audiobook of Dark Harmony on Audible  here and you can nab the print book here (you can also find the

Attending the 2019 ApollyCon Event

Hi all! I hope everyone has had an amazing new year! I know that I still feel like a stuffed turkey from all the good (re: unhealthy) food I ate. But a new year means new books and new events! I'll be covering all of this in several blog posts, but for today, I wanted to let you know that I'm planning on attending one author event this year, ApollyCon 2019 . I don't usually attend book conferences because they are costly, but I've been trying to squeeze in one per year so that I can meet you all and sign stuff and embarrass myself. (I'm an awkward duck.) ApollyCon is in Washington D.C. from  March 21 to March 24, and I look forward to seeing those of you who are attending! If you live in the area, please consider swinging by! I'd love to chat with you all!
