Pre-orders Are Ready for Crown of Sacrifice


If you’d like to pre-order your ebook copy of Crown of Sacrifice, I am happy to report that you can do that now.  I appreciate everyone’s patience as I have been learning how pre-orders work and how to make them work faster at each retailer.  My hope is that for the next book, Flight of Hope, which is due in June, I might be able to have the pre-orders available as early as April.  Click the link for your favorite seller below.

Crown of Sacrifice Cover Reveal & Release Date


It’s March, and you know what that means–book three of The Gamayun Prophecies is coming out.  Crown of Sacrifice will be released Monday March 28.  I hope to have all the pre-order links ready for you in a few days time.  Now that I’m offering the ebooks at multiple retailers, they tend to appear at different times.  Once I have them all, I’ll post them here.  Once again, the paperback will only be at Amazon to keep the price low.

Resplendent Media provided me another gorgeous cover.  This time no boys, just the ladies dukin’ it out.  This book finds Galine and Sera going head-to-head, so I thought it only fitting that they should get the cover.  We also get some new locales as the action moves beyond North Carolina and New York to Chicago and a yacht in the Caribbean Sea. For a full description of the book, read below.  A spoiler warning, though.  If you haven’t yet finished reading Wings of Ash, it might have more info that you want.

Galine thought she’d have some time to collect herself and heal after Sasha put a hole in Sirin’s chest. While she knew her immortal enemy wasn’t gone for good, she had hoped to at least take a breather. But before Sirin even makes it to her sickbed, Sera takes up her mother’s quest to hunt down the Gamayun. Sera isn’t just after Galine, though, but is furious that her brother Alex has joined the Gamayun’s cause. She’s determined to return him to the fold before their mother wakes up and demands retribution for Alex’s betrayal.

Sera isn’t Galine’s only problem, though. She still doesn’t know where Sirin’s demon hawks are taking the souls they steal. In order to find out, they must split up—Galine and Sasha heading to Chicago and Harper, Alex, and Katja to Brazil. Each journey brings danger, but Galine’s allies could be their own worst enemies. What does Sasha know about Sera he’s not telling? Will Katja ever forgive Galine? Why has Harper grown so distant from Alex?

The mystery, action, and romance of the The Gamayun Prophecies continues in this third book of the series.


Ebooks Now Available on iBooks, B&N and more!

I am pleased to announce that Call of Affliction and Wings of Ash are now available at a number of different bookstores, not just Amazon. I’m now distributing the ebooks with Smashwords, which means they are available at Smashwords, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Scribd, Inkterra, and several library distributors. That doesn’t mean your library will automatically have it as they still have to purchase it, but it is available to them, and you can certainly suggest they purchase it. 🙂  I hope to also eventually offer them through Google Play, but they are going through some sort of transition and are not allowing any new authors or publishers at the moment.

So, if you have an e-reader other than an Kindle and have been wanting to purchase one of the books of The Gamayun Prophecies, now you can.  Or if you’re just anti-Amazon (no judgment). The paperbacks will still only be available at Amazon.  I thought long and hard about this.  I could distribute them to Barnes & Noble and other booksellers, but it would mean raising the price by $4 a book, and I didn’t want to do that to my readers.

If you would like the direct links to buy the books at these retailers, check my updated Books page.

Alex’s New York

My next Pinterest board is about our favorite rogue, Alex.  Whether you hate him or love him, or feel a little bit of both for him, his life is never dull.  Not being fabulously wealthy myself, I had a great deal of fun researching how the 1% of Manhattan live.  If you have millions to spend on lofts and club memberships, it turns out pretty well 🙂

So enjoy oogling Alex’s waterfront views, swanky nightclubs, and the marina where he moors his yacht. Don’t you feel more elite just reading that sentence?

Two Chances to Win a Copy of Wings of Ash

woa_fbad1Once again, with the release of the second book in The Gamayun Prophecies, I’m hot to give out some free stuff.  Last week it was free Kindle copies of the first book, Call of Affliction.  This week, it’s copies of the new book, Wings of Ash, and there are two ways to do it.

First, I’m doing a mailing list giveaway.  If you’re already on my mailing list, you don’t have to do anything.  You’ll automatically be entered to win.  If you’re not on my mailing list, what are you waiting for?  I’m not a spammer, I don’t sell your info, and I basically just use it to give you free stuff.  I also only ask for your first name and email address.  FYI, following the blog is not the same thing as being on my mailing list.  Click here to subscribe and enter for a chance to win 2 paperback copies and 10 ebook copies of Wings of Ash.  You don’t have to have a Kindle, any reader or app will work.  You must subscribe by February 13th to win.

The second giveaway starts February 2nd and is a month long and will have a bit more competition.  It’s over at Goodreads.  If your not familiar with Goodreads, you should give it a look. I only discovered it last year, and it’s awesome.  It not only keeps track of books you’ve read and books you’d like to read, but it will also suggest books for you to read next based on what you liked before.  If you want to be social with it, you can also connect with your Facebook friends, reader forums, follow authors, and lots of other goodies.  They have an app as well, which I like.  You can even scan bar codes of books you like in bookstores or libraries so you don’t have to remember titles later.  When I’m at the library, I just pull up my to-read shelf and check out the next few books.  Anyway, now that I’m done extolling the virtues of Goodreads, here are the details of the giveaway.  If you click this link, it will take you to my Wings of Ash giveaway page, where you can enter for a chance to win one of 10 paperback copies.  While you’re there, you can add to your shelf.  You should look for other giveaways while you are there.  There are loads.  I have entered several myself.  Have I mentioned Goodreads is awesome? 🙂
