I have an idea about a young woman who is the last Christian on earth—or so she thinks. It's a futuristic novel, and I'm LOVING it! It's with an editor right now, so hopefully things with it will move quickly.
I have at least two more ideas for Entertaining Angels series books. We'll see what happens with that in the future, but I'm not working on them currently.
Don't forget to sign up for my newsletter (on the home page) so you'll be one of the first to know what's happening with my upcoming books!
God bless, and remember, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
An answer to a question...
A question that I get asked a lot is when I'll be releasing book two in the Knight's Academy trilogy. Generally, books are released about a year in between one another, but as it happens, when I sent The Marked to my publisher, I had The Hunted (book two) written because I wrote these books four years ago. By the end of this month (March), I hope to have it to my publisher, and then it will be a few months in production. So, if all goes well, before the end of the year, you'll have book two. Nothing is official though. I just wanted to give a little update on it since I get this question all the time. :)
Book three hasn't even been written yet, so that may take a little longer to get in your hands. I apologize now because you probably won't be happy with me given how book two ends. ;)
The good news is that the paperback for The Marked is available now! Get your copy on Amazon and Barnes or Noble. And the audiobook is in production. :)
The Marked: A Knight's Academy Novel
So, quick update. Things are moving rather quickly for The Marked: A Knight's Academy Novel. Due to the holidays, I wasn't able to do a cover release, so it will remain a surprise until release day which is January 10, 2017!! That's next Tuesday. Also, because of the holidays, I haven't been able to properly prepare a release party or anything, but I'm stoked that this book will finally be out! I may do a soft release next week and party at the end of the month where I can actually prepare something proper to celebrate! Sign up for my newsletter for more information when the day finally comes!
The Marked: A Knight's Academy Novel
So, I have some pretty exciting news that I've been sitting on, but since the book is now in it's editing stage (and I've signed the contract), I think it's pretty safe to share. I have signed my YA paranormal (not Christian) book, The Marked, with Clean Reads. I'm really excited that I can finally get this novel off of my computer and into your hands.
This book has been a long time coming. I've been working on it for close to four years now. It's been through multiple beta reads and quite a few edits, an edit with a professional freelancer, and here we are, publishing it through Clean Reads. Honestly, I never thought that I would publish it, so it's nice to finally have it in the process of actually publication. I'm thrilled beyond words!
As I mentioned before, it's not a Christian novel, which has been my primary writing focus. This book is a YA paranormal involving werewolves, vampires, and hybrids. It was fun immersing myself into this world, and there will be at least two more books in the Knight's Academy world.
That's all the information I have on it right now. There's no official release date yet, but as soon as I know more, you'll know more!
Unfortunately, Booktrope's closing has thrown me for a loop. I have to figure out plans to republish my books and figure out how to best proceed with Delivered by Angels' release. So at this point, I can no longer give an estimated release date, but I'm shooting for June. I will keep you all updated.
Delivered by Angels Cover Reveal and more
On the blog, we're raising awareness of self-harm, depression, and suicide by writing guest posts and using the hashtag #youarenotalone. You can follow all the posts with this link.
On Tuesday, I will interrupt the #youarenotalone guest posts to show you the cover of my new book set to release on May 31st!! Delivered by Angels is the second book in the Entertaining Angels series, and it focuses on the #youarenotalone theme with our favorite characters and more!
Before We Say I Do update and giveaway
The official release day has been set! Before We Say I Do will release on July 14th! Everything is going so very well! We're actually probably a little ahead of schedule, and I'm so excited that we aren't pushing it too hard to get everything done. My book manager is setting up a blog tour from July 13 - July 30, and if you're interested in that, you can sign up here.
Also, we're having a party on Facebook to celebrate Mads and Chase's union! You can join us on July 14th at 1PM CST/2PM EST.
And to celebrate this release, I'm giving away THREE ebook copies of Entertaining Angels, book one in the series, so you can catch up before book 1.5 hits stores! Enter that giveaway here from July 1 - 6!
I think that's it! Hope you're all doing well, and I hope to see you around soon!
Before We Say I Do is coming soon!
Hello hello! We're currently in the process of finishing up the edits on Before We Say I Do, and we'll soon launch into proofreading and then layout! Guys, this is totally happening. In July (around the 14th or 16th), I'll be re-publishing it under the Vox Dei Imprint. You should see the cover concept we came up with. Can't wait to get that approved and move forward with the final cover. Unlike for Entertaining Angels, I'll share this cover BEFORE the publication date.
Thank you all for the tremendous love and support as I work on republishing my current books and writing my new ones under Vox Dei (and Booktrope).
Stay tuned, as always, for more information!

I have some really Awesome News!
So, after the blog tour I had for Entertaining Angels and Before We Say I Do, I was contacted by someone who was reviewing Entertaining Angels for the tour who loved it. She, also, happened to be the Managing Director for Vox Dei Publishing, an imprint of Booktrope.
So, she thought that Entertaining Angels would be a good fit for this imprint, and after reading about them, knowing what kind of books they publish and kind of comparing them to Entertaining Angels, I agreed. So, after some heavy duty praying about what I needed to do, God gave me a clear answer. As you can probably guess by the title of the blog post, my answer was yes. The other day, I officially signed the contract with Booktrope/Vox Dei.
I’m currently setting up my team, and I can’t wait to republish Entertaining Angels and Before We Say I Do through them! I’ll probably be doing my entire Entertaining Angels series with them. I’m really excited to be on this new journey God has directed me to.
