Coming November 1st and available for preorder!
Last year Bethany was betrayed by her partner, kidnapped by her partner’s boss, and drugged. Something she is still feeling the after effects of. She also got into a relationship with Brian, a geeky vampire she just can’t seem to stay away from and owes her life to. After a nice vacation in the tropics, she is feeling ready to continue on with her life. She throws herself into her work, including a job to find out if her undead grandmother is insane and needs to be killed.
It's just her luck that while dealing with all that her dead partner is back and looking for vengeance. You wouldn’t think a ghost could be so much trouble for a hybrid like her but he isn’t a normal ghost, he’s the ghost of a Fae and it takes a special type of exorcism to get rid of them. It’s up to Bethany, Jason, and Brian to find the secrets of an ancient ritual to send Kyle to the ever after. That is if she does not go insane first.
The giveaway is closed and I will be picking winners and emailing them the winner link. If you see your name below keep your eyes open for an email with a link to claim your prize!
You will likely hear from me very little for a while. My furbaby, that I have been with longer than hubby or kid, has cancer and is receiving care at home. Basically, a home hospice to make him comfortable until he passes so we can spend what little time he has left with him. Fox still seems normal. He is not in any pain and he still cuddles and plays with us. They said he will last about a month, 2 weeks if we unlucky, 6 if we very lucky. All I want to do is cry.
Work will be on the back burner for now. There is also Halloween, November 6th is my son's bday, then there's Thanksgiving, and last but not least X-mas. So if you need me pm me but do not be surprised if I don't respond for a few days. I have a lot on my plate and right now family is the top priority.
I have a few newsletters set up to go out when the time is right, new release announcements and such. Other than that I will be scarce until the new year.
The vote was overwhelmingly all of you asking for my book! Since I feel the love I have decided to give more than one book away! So everyone who wants to enter click below and say I WANT TO WIN!

Can a killer save a species doomed to extinction?
Helen is a killer. After her past was destroyed by an alien invasion her job, her life, has been about survival. It is not always easy. Her only, sometimes, partner in this is Phillip a killer who fights for revenge. Neither have pure motives for fighting the aliens that killed so many and continue to battle humanity for space domination but they are ok with that. There is only one problem.
The next step in Helen's plan, according to her boss, is to go to the academy. The training grounds for the next generation of military fighting the invaders. At the academy is a link to Helen's past she may or may not be ready to face….her ex-fiancé Nick who thinks she is dead.
She can fly any jet, fire any weapon, and is a master in all hand to hand combat. She can even pretend to fight the good fight alongside the pure-hearted military boys thinking they will save the world but when push comes to shove she's a killer. She survived Nick's abandonment of her, the aliens killing her entire village, witnessing and experiencing things no human should go through, and now she will have to survive a plot against the entire population of Earth, even if it means destroying what remains of her past.
She has no life anymore; the only thing that matters is death…hopefully theirs.
Okay so we had a tie. Which means revote with only those two options! Pick your fave and in 48 hours I will close the votes and send out a new email with a giveaway link or form (not sure which I want to do yet)
I am thinking about a giveaway, ebook, and oddly enough not one of mine. I want to share books by author friends. What genre would everyone prefer? I thought about doing an ironic giveaway. Historical romance since its one of 2 genres I have never written (the other is horror and I will give myself nightmares so that's not an option).
Have an opinion? Vote below.
So remember that apple picking I did? I have so many apples! I made homemade applesauce, we ate apples, and I made apple pie. Still have soooooo many. Send recipes please! Any apple recipe you have tried and loved! We have a variety of kinds so if it requires a specific apple feel free to mention that too!
I have been busy. 3 out 5 of the books coming out next year have the 1st draft done and are with the editor (who is cursing my name for popping them out so quickly).
I am getting covers for all the books being released now through 2021. You may have seen them on the series page or on the home page being added as I get them. So many pretties. I like having the covers early it will make marketing easier (since a cover required for that).
On a personal note my cat is on a new medication. I am hoping for the best. But just in case he needs a transplant anyone know where to buy pet organs? There is a black market for human organs so there has to be one for cats....I mean everyone loves their pets. ;) I did tell the vet if my cat needed a transplant to find one with the right blood type and I would scrap it for parts. Anything it takes. They told my cat not to be mad that I brought him to the vets because I loved him...a lot. There is no price to high to make my baby better (my hubby says we should stop just short of bankruptcy and I said bring on the bankruptcy my kitty gonna be happy and healthy).
I am looking forward to autumn. My son, bestie and I have already gone apple picking for the early bird apples. We are going again in October. I have ordered our Halloween costumes as well. (My almost 6 year old son picks the theme). I know its only September but I hate waiting until everything is gone and if they send the wrong sizes I like having time to correct the issue. Anyway my son is going to be squirtle and then wear the outfit as pjs (double duty = awesome) and I shall be charmander (also one piece pj that I plan to live in all winter). My bestie will be pikachu.
We have yet to convince the hubby to trick or treat with us and dress up. He does however loves the pumpkin picking then carving process. He is really good at it so that likely helps. I like the scooping pumpkin guts out. Hubby always laughs saying I'm am a terrible girl because I love getting dirty. I jump in mud puddles, love making meatloaf because you use your hands to mix it and other weird things like that. I prefer to describe it as being connected to my inner child.
Well happy upcoming autumn. Feel free to share costume ideas and or pics. We are open to ideas for next year (we really love Halloween). Below you will see my sons and mine for this year. (not us the amazon pics)

Tiffany Lang hit the jackpot when she married her college sweetheart. For seven years, she had it all; a successful husband, beautiful home, and an adorable son. But her winning streak came to a heartbreaking end when she discovered her husband balls-deep in another woman. Nine months later, Tiffany is divorced and adjusting to life as a single parent under the ever-flashing lights of Las Vegas. With her son now spending half his time at her ex’s, she longs for something to keep her busy. At the suggestion of her best friend, she takes a job as a cocktail waitress at one of Sin City's hottest establishments: Azul Cielo Casino.
Carter Jackson, a prominent entertainment lawyer from LA, is known as a high roller at Azul Cielo Casino, hosting private poker nights for his colleagues and sparing no expense. A last-minute staffing change puts Tiffany front and center at one of these gatherings, where she meets Carter. Their attraction to one another is instant and palpable, yet Tiffany vows to keep things between them professional. Carter’s charming persistence eventually wears her down and she agrees to meet for coffee. A harmless enough first date, right? Wrong. The line between ‘professional’ and ‘personal’ is quickly erased.
Life with a high roller is anything but boring. Lavish parties, wild, unhinged sex. But then, something changes, raising the stakes in their relationship. And while Carter’s going all-in, willing to take the biggest of gambles on true love, Tiffany is hesitant. The sting of betrayal from her cheating ex is still there, holding her back. But the bet’s on her now. Will Tiffany call to see if Carter’s bluffing, and take a chance on love again? Or, will she fold and walk away from the table with nothing?

So I realize its been a little over 3 weeks since you have heard from me. And maybe some of you didn't notice, maybe some of you wondered if I died....well I didn't.
I did break a toe, fell and bruised my tail bone, my cat started having seizures so we have been to the vet 3 times in 2 weeks, I had to see my TMJ specialist because I am clenching so hard at night I have put cracks in 2 teeth...which meant I had to go to dentist to get them patched up so they don't completely fall apart and get stuck in my throat in my sleep. So as you can see its been a crappy few weeks.
Not going to lie I am looking forward to winter when I can hibernate and hide from the big bad world.
Because it has been a crappy post I want to share a cute animal pic to leave you with cheer. Feel free to send me your pet pics! I love cute animals....which is basically all animals. Never fails to make you smile.
Shifting Truth, the long awaited book 2 of the shifting blood series, is set to be released before the end of the year. So that is also some yay news. Now enjoy and cute sleeping cat photo!
Lions, and tigers, and bears oh my! Lots of shapeshifters! They are everywhere! Paranormal romances galore and my first Animal Within book (Taming the Wolf) is there! Go grab bit now!
I love to write. In my spare time I nerd out on manga and anime. I read...a lot. When I am pried away from that I like photography (by that I mean a digital camera that I use to document my family's life... obsessively so). I also like nature. I am told I am like a puppy in the fact that if I do not get my daily walk in I am unbearable to be around.
