STORM BORN, Giveaways, and Blogger Sign-Ups!

The past few weeks have been pretty minimal in terms of Thursday posts. Not the case today, since my latest standalone novel, Storm Born, has been released!



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…

Storm Born's release day was insane. Unquestionably the biggest release day I've done so far. I don't know how I'm going to handle all that work with future novels (well, I have some ideas, but more on that later), but I look forward to the challenge! 


I had all kinds of things happening on Tuesday, everything from a release day blitz on Cover2Cover to listings on Authorsdb, BookLife, and Story Cartel, reviews, and giveaways:









There will be plenty more giveaways and reviews as time passes, I'm sure, not to mention more promotions on various blogs. It was exhausting, but I am glad that Storm Born finally out into the world. I'm still reeling from having another standalone novel out in the ebook world, I'm also thinking ahead to new projects. Since setting up blog tours, reviews, giveaways, etc, is monumentally time-consuming (seriously, so many hours), I've decided to collaborate with a couple great book tour companies to expand my reader/reviewer/blogger reach– XPresso Book Tours (the same company that set up the cover reveal for Damnation's Door) and En Pointe. Both are going to help me set up book blitzes and tours for Damnation's Door and the Cursed series, as well as for  Midnight Sky, the second Dark Sky novel. I'm very excited to see how this will unfold, as both companies have been very prompt with replies and helpful with every question I've had. There are already sign ups for book bloggers interested in reviewing either an urban fantasy trilogy about demons, angels, and tough women, or a steampunk fantasy horror series with vampires and pirates!


Sign Ups:









Yup– all of this is going on, and more is on the way. Definitely a lot to be excited for, and I'm sure this post makes up for the lack of excitement in the previous Thursday posts. I look forward to all that's happening and will continue to happen, and can't wait to share more!






P.S.: On a more personal note, some of you might have heard about the monstrous wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alberta. This is only a few hours away from my home city, and close to 90, 000 people are now without a home. The Red Cross is accepting donations of all kinds, and everything is appreciated, as long as you can spare it. Thank you!
