New Release!

I am excited to announce that my debut novel, Bloodborn, is now available for purchase!

When dire circumstances force blood hunter, Adam Degore, to find a cure for vampirism, he captures a vampire named Willow. It isn’t until after the capture when he finds out she is Dracula’s daughter. He is now faced with a choice to either release her and face Dracula’s deadly wrath should he find out, or risk killing her and also face Dracula’s deadly wrath.

Is the risk worth it?

Bloodborn Release Date

Release Date: December 6

The time has finally come! Bloodborn has a release date, and I’m over the moon excited! A box of author copies came in the mail, and it’s surreal to hold the finished product in my hands. Years of blood, sweat, tears, and more blood went into this book. I have learned a lot about myself while writing and editing. The publishing journey has not been easy, but it certainly has been worth it! The pre-order links are below.

Book Review of Miss Kane’s Christmas by Caroline Mickelson

Christmas in October? You bet! I’m a Christmas all-year-long type of gal. I sing Christmas songs from January to December, and I still haven’t put away my wreath from last year (though that one is due to sheer laziness ;)) So when it comes to reading holiday books when it should be time for Halloween, I’m all for it.

I have to say that I absolutely adored this book! I found myself laughing throughout the entire thing, and I got plenty of warm fuzzies as I read. I think I have found myself another favorite author, and I look forward to reading more from her!

Book Review of Four Last First Dates by Kate O’Keeffe

I enjoyed reading this! Sometimes it’s nice to step away from my regular reading genre and into a cozy little contemporary romance. I love cakes and I love romance, so this was a fun read.

There were a few things I didn’t quite like about the story. First, I didn’t know how Dan died until the very end, and I wish I would have known sooner. I didn’t see a point to keeping the information from the reader. Second, earlier, Ryan was looking at the photographs of Bailey and Dan. I wish he would have recognized that Jason the cater looked like Dan. It would have made for more of a punch. Third, I didn’t like the ending. It made me cringe in an “I’m embarrassed for them” way. But other than that, it was a great read!

I love that this book made me feel something. I found myself crying a couple times throughout the book, and not very many books can do that. A fun read!

What I Read When I’m Not Feeling Well

wednesday blogging challenge

This is a hard question to answer, as I don’t usually read the same book twice unless I really have a craving for it. Therefore, I’ll slightly tweak the question to Authors I Read When I’m Not Feeling Well.

Bloodborn Series Comes to a Conclusion

sunset couple

I am so excited to finally say that I’m finished writing the Bloodborn series. Luca and Kirsa’s journey comes to a conclusion in book five, wrapping up at 91,000 words. I first started the Bloodborn series with the characters Adam and Willow, Bloodborn getting contracted with the Wild Rose Press. Only earlier this week did I send the second in the series to my editor, and now I’m crossing my fingers that it will get contracted as well!

Bloodborn started when I decided to use a writing prompt, which spurred an idea, which spurred a book, which inspired a series. At the beginning, I never thought this would gain the traction that it had, but I’m so excited it did! I do have an idea for a novella in mind for this series, but I hope to include it for free for readers in my upcoming newsletter.

What’s next?

I’ll likely be working on my regency romance series. I’m finished with the first book, I Am Marianne, and I’m two chapters into my second, Just Jane.

Now all I have to do is name this fifth book…

Edit: Is the series really over? Then why am I getting an idea for a sixth??? It never ends!!!
