Secrets of Skin and Stone’s Cover

Earlier this week, my YA paranormal debut had a cover release on YA Books Central, but for those who haven’t seen it, it’s gorgeous and needs to be seen. What I love about this cover is that the idea of gargoyle comes across but so does the gothic tone to the book. The font is just amazing–it feels 3D and […]

  Once you start telling people you’re an author, you occasionally run across those who will casually diminish that or the value of your stories. “Oh, if I had more time, I could be too.” “Yeah, but you write romance.” “Do you actually make money at it?” “Oh, I have a great idea for a story…something you should write.” For […]

Servants of Fate Series is out!

Stealing Time first debuted a few years ago. It was one of those times for authors when you write what you want to read. I wanted something different, but magical. The winter holiday season has always seemed to be magical to me, even with the stress of parties, get-togethers, and getting everything ready in time. (I’m an introvert with OCD–those […]

First 1000 words of Keeping Time

  Ruin hated the years he ended up in the hospital on New Year’s Eve. It should be easier to take the life of someone who was already dying, but being surrounded by others just waiting their turn seemed like a cruel trick the Fates played on him. It reiterated that Ruin wasn’t a benevolent helper every day of the […]

First 1000 Words of Taking Time

  Bored. “Bored. Bored. Bored.” And he had no confidence whatsoever that tonight would alleviate his condition. Tempus glanced around him at the mortals getting drunker and less interesting by the second. Why squander minutes, let alone hours, in this condition when both were numbered?
