Welcome To My Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!
Glad you could stop by for a few. Please feel free to peruse the shelves, grab a hot drink, sit back, and relax.
You may have noticed a new look to my web site; I've redesigned the whole thing from the ground up yet again. My domain came up for renewal, and I decided to give it another go on my own. I enjoyed the ease of the SquareSpace templates, but wanted more control over the content. So, this is going to be a work-in-progress as I find time to work on it. Life is always busy here, but I will do the best I can. My blog had to change hands as well in the process, but it's still here. Feel free to let me know what you think of the changes, and if there is content you would like me to add. I'm always open to suggestions.
As you hopefully know by now, Indigo has been released into the wild! After a few years full of fits and starts, I've finally gotten him out of my head so he can now get into yours. It's available in both paperback and ebook from most online merchants. I LOVE seeing the positive reviews it's getting - so if you read it, please let me know what you think! Check out the reviews so far here.
More news on the Indigo front - it is officially an audiobook! If you know me, you know I have a passion for audiobooks - so seeing Indigo be brought to life through voice is very exciting. If you enjoy audiobooks as I do, you'll love the narration done by the amazing voice talent, Lisa Ashmore. She really brings Maya to life, so be sure to download it!
While I've had many suggestions for a sequel to Indigo, I've been working on an urban fantasy story, Shade. I've always loved the concept of modern-day mages (a la Benedict Jacka's Alex Verus series - highly recommended btw), and now I'm putting my own twist on the genre. I had linked up with Inkshares to try to become part of The Nerdist Collection in a contest, and in an effort to promote pre-orders of the book, I have published my first three chapters for free here. Have a quick read and drop me a note on my Facebook page if you like it (and even if you don't!) For more info on Shade, check out the Shade page. The contest has ended (I didn't win...), but the material is still up there for your perusal. I've also added Chapter Preview pages if you want to take a look here. These would be the most recent, as I've not updated my Inkshares page.
Don't worry Indigo fans, he's never far from my thoughts, and I have many ideas on where that story can go - You will get a sequel!
For you non-fiction readers, I still intend to turn my article The Child You Expect into a full-length work as well but am focusing on Shade for the time being.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Your support of my writing is most appreciated.
