Weekly Recap

Wow. Last week was wild! I got a ton of work done, way more than I thought I would. I didn't cross it all off, but most of the hard work was finished. The rest can technically wait, though I'm hoping to get my pre-orders up sometime this week so I can work them into other events that are coming up (more on that right away):


• Complete Beta edits for Midnight Sky

• Edit Storm Born

• Format Storm Born and Damnation's Door (send out review requests when they're done) (Storm Born still has to be edited once more before the formatting is done)

• Complete new version of Storm of the Gods (working on it!)

• Continue world building for Agents of Limbo

This week will be just as busy as I get ready to start new promotions so I can be ready for simultaneous releases in May and June, as well as other deadlines I've set up for myself. Which means I need to do the following:


• Pre-orders for Storm Born and Damnation's Door 

• Final edits and formatting for Storm Born 

• Send out review requests for Storm Born and Damnation's Door 

• ARCs and media kits for Storm Born and Damnation's Door

• Edit and submit short story for Mocha Memoirs Steampunk Horror anthology

• Complete new version of Storm of the Gods

Yup. No rest for the wicked writer. And I am absolutely a wicked one. I spent the last few days thinking of ways to torment my characters, doing so with glee. Good thing I know how much they can take, and I am a firm believer in HEA endings. Unlike some book series that I know


So, onto the fun stuff. This week is going to be pretty exciting. Tomorrow I'm supposed to get the cover art for Damnation's Door, the last novel in my Cursed trilogy. But I'm not going to share it yet. Oh no. Why not? Because I received a fantastic gift– a cover reveal promotion from Xpresso Book Tours! I'm insanely excited about this event (which will happen on March 20), especially since the covers for Demon's Daughter and Dark Divinity have been absolutely stellar. 





Since Damnation's Door is technically still a ways away, I'll be focusing on my upcoming standalone release, Storm Born, which had its cover reveal last week!



A single night can change your life… for the worst.


It’s been a century since the last Centennial Storm, the calamitous phenomenon that covered the world in disasters– tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, tsunamis, and dust storms– caused not by nature, but by alien creatures from another realm. The Stormkind.


Ava Reid tries not to think about that night, when she was caught in a hurricane and brought face to face with one of the Stormkind, the man with a dagger, and the agony she felt when he stabbed her with a crystal blade. Yet as she and the rest of Florida’s citizens begin to rebuild their lives, Ava can’t help but notice strange things happening around her. Things she seems to be causing. The gusts of wind and sudden floods attract the attentions of a mysterious stranger who leaves her clues, and the deadlier men following her.


It isn’t long before Ava is swept up into a wild conspiracy, led by a secret society that knows the truth about the Stormkind– and what their enemies have planned for the world she loves. If she wishes to protect her friends and her family, Ava must harness her strange new abilities and become part of the Stormkind society. Because if she loses control, there will be no force strong enough to stop her…




Promos for that bad boy are likely going to start next week. I was hoping to do a little more promotion for Crimson Sky, but with two releases so close together, I need to sort out my priorities. There will be lots of promos, interviews, and spotlights coming up, similar to the one I had with Nicky Peacock recently. For now, I'm playing catch up and prepare, and getting ready to read a bunch of blood-splattered, over-the-top madness in Spawn of the Ripper, which features my short story The Maker of Monsters


Come on, it looks like fun, you know it does.


And that's what's going on! I've literally got about two weeks to prepare myself for a whirlwind of promotion and press, and I just hope I'm going to be ready for it all. Still getting the hang of it, and hopefully with another couple releases, I'll have a steady process and can streamline it by next year. Hope everyone has a good week! Cheers!
