Time For More Fun
Have any of you ever tried something new that seemed a little risky? I feel like that’s been my life the last 8 months with work, writing, adopting a new fur-baby and a few other areas.
I fully admit to being a little scattered in my loves, but when I love, I go all in, especially with my pastries and my writing worlds!
Then there’s the addition of my little Wilykit to my family of me and Sir Tigra 🙂 It’s been an interesting challenge to get them to get along. We’ve still got a ways to go but they are not trying to go for each other’s throats at least =^_^=
I can’t deny I seem to have a love for cats with stripes and adorably feisty personalities.
Then there’s the chances I am taking in the book world, the biggest of which is posting the first book of my newest series, Venators of Orion, on Swoon Reads.
For those who don’t know, Swoon reads is a part of Macmillan publishing and is an open format where authors go to post their polished manuscripts for the Swoon Reads community to read and leave feed back and ratings on. Then a few times a year the Swoon reads staff go through the posted books and select what books they wan to publish. (I have personally found a half dozen book from there I LOVE!) Anyone can sign up to be apart of the community, both as authors and readers!
CHASING THE ORION STARS is now up for readers to find and enjoy and I’d love to see what my readers think of this new chapter of YA Urban Fantasy fun 🙂
Aurora Milos has fallen in love with a sixteenth century boy in her dreams of all places. When her mom moves them to Rome, Italy she’ll not only discover Alexander “Lex” Borgia is real, but that he’s found a way to defy time and to be with her in the twenty-first century—just as he vowed he would.
The only problem is that keeping that vow will drive Aurora and Lex into the center of an ancient war between the Venators of Orion, the immortal army that protect our world, the mysterious and unseen phantom beasts that roam the earth, and those who use those monsters to get their revenge.
Aurora’s new life may have everything she’s ever wanted, but it’s not what she thought it would be; and if she and Lex fail to stop the evil Pleiades sisters and their followers the modern world will never be the same.
I hope some of you will go over and check it out before I make a decision on what to do with my newest literary baby.
There is one last thing that I’ve been working on, when I have had the time, and that’s pulling together a fun Instagram scavenger hunt that will pair up a bunch of amazing YA authors for some pic prompting fun with some really great prizes thrown in!! More information and the event dates will come as I get author confirmation, so until then stay tuned for the follow up!!!!!
