SOLD! Strained (Book #3 in the Alexa York series)

I just signed the contract for STRAINED the next book in my Alexa York series. Thank you to Purple Sword Publications for making this happen. What a way to welcome the weekend. I’ll be head’s down in my first round of edits this weekend, which suits me just fine.

Strained is a reprint of Half Breed, but I had to add some extra words, change up the plot a tad, and twist some things around so that it tied more smoothly into Stricken. All in all, I think it’s a much better story than before. My hope is that fans will think so, too.

Next up is a brand new blurb and a cover to boot. I can’t wait!

Sizzling Summer Reads Party!

In case you didn’t know, I’m participating in the Sizzling Summer Reads party hosted by The Romance Reviews. My question will be up tomorrow, but more important, I’m offering up a free copy of STRICKEN to anyone who can correctly guess the answer my question. To find out more details, check it out here. Oh, and my giveaway isn’t the only prize that’s up for grabs. So, get to grabbing!

Two Submission in Less Than a Week

Yes, I’m very proud of myself. 🙂 Both The Underground Portal (Portal book #2) and Strained (Alexa York book #3) have been sitting on my back burner for a little while, but not because I ran out of steam. It’s been a whirlwind for me and my family over the past two months.

It all started in March when it was time to start looking for a new job in Charlotte, NC. I had found one and accepted their offer. Not only that, but we were in the middle of moving to a safer neighborhood, too. Low and behold, another job opportunity came knocking. I didn’t think much of it because I thought the interview went “okay”. Well, it went better than that. They had given me an offer I couldn’t refuse.

So, I packed up my family for Greenville, South Carolina. Woohoooooooooooo! 😀

Of course, I had traded the stories in my head for To Do lists. We had to move twice in less than six weeks. For the Greenville leg, I had two weeks to find us a place to live (taking into account good schools and safe neighborhood), find movers (Moving Help by Uhaul saved our lives), pack (I love my mom), and still put in the last five days at the old job.

Like moving to any new city, you need time to settle in. We’ve been doing that for a 1.5+ months and it’s been okay, so far. Slowly, I’ve worked writing back into my schedule while at the same time, doing some experimental promoting with The Light at the End of Judgment and Day and Stricken.

And through all of that, somehow, I managed to get those two manuscripts off to my amazing publishers, Mocha Memoirs Press and Purple Sword Publications. Whew!

Hello, Greenville, SC! :mrgreen:

Review Tour Coming Up for STRICKEN

Check this out.

STRICKEN will go on a Review Tour just in time for my birthday. Nice present! Anyway, that means a giveaway will also be involved. I’ll give more details as the review dates approach.

Happy Release Day for STRICKEN!!

stricken_originalIt’s here! It’s finally here! Be sure to purchase a copy today at Purple Sword Publications. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about this release. Alexa York is back and she’s taking no prisoners. Not only that, but there’s a whole new cast of characters that have opened up some serious possibilities in this unique world. But, that’s all I’m going to say about that. For now. 😉

In the mean time, be sure to check back because I have some promo stuff coming up and that involve prizes.

Happy reading!!

Blurb

Personal tragedy convinces half-werewolf Alexa York to get away to the town of McCormick, Pennsylvania where she’s charged with protecting Dr. Aiden Joss, physician to the supernatural community. Not only does she need the money, she needs the distraction. Unfortunately, she gets it in spades when Joss’s personal issues and a myriad of dangerously sick patients make her new job nearly impossible.

A mysterious disease is running its way through the New York Order of the Amazons and leaving bodies in its wake. The same warrior who had chosen her clan over Joss has asked for him help. Even though the disease is real, Alexa has reason to believe his ex’s sincerity is not.

Given the other numerous problems she has to deal with that are outside of her job description, Dr. Joss might be the biggest threat to his own safety. But, protecting him comes first. That’s difficult to do when his efforts to find an antidote put everyone in his remote clinic in danger, including Alexa.

It’s a bodyguard job like no other.

It’s Coming May 6th!

You saw that right. STRICKEN will be released on May 6th by Purple Sword Publications and I can’t wait!! I’m thrilled to breathe more like back into Alexa York after such a long hiatus. Check out that bad-ass cover. :mrgreen: Stricken cover_art

SOLD! Stricken (Book #2 in The Wonderful Human Hybrid World of Alexa York)

You read that right. Alexa York will live on in STRICKEN, thanks to the fabulous publishing house of Purple Sword Publications. Now whether not I’m going to keep that series name is another story. That was just me playing around because I have Harry Potter on the brain and have no clue as to why. Anyway, no word on a release date, but I’m pretty sure it’ll be some time this year. Nevertheless, you’ll know as soon as I do because I’m planning some release-day promo around that date, which will probably come with a giveaway or two.

Check out the blurb…
