If you’re not a part of my newsletter (which you can join here) you may have missed the announcement that I have decided to re-release Spellbound as a single title.

Spellbound was originally part of the anthology Time Out of Darkness – which was an amazing group of stories, but as it is connected to my new Boudoirs and Broomsticks series, I thought I’d offer it as a lone story. This novella will be available May 26 for $0.99 and is up for pre-order right now.

Eden Books: https://edenbooks.org/product/spellbound/
All other retailers: https://books2read.com/u/3yEGaV

I also just revealed the cover for this short story. So if you’ve missed it, here you go:

Ebook Cover

And here is the blurb:

Gideon Harrison is on a mission to discover the secrets of a mausoleum that may have the ability to transform the world as he knows it. Power, greater than he can imagine is for the taking if the rumors are to be believed. However, fate has something more in store for him and he finds himself in a world vastly different from his own. A man lost – in place and time.

Lucy Granger is living her best life in New Orleans, Louisiana. As a white witch, she usually enjoys the days she spends in Jackson Square telling fortunes for tourists, but there is something strange in the air. Change is coming.

When a man of the 19th century finds himself asking for help from a white witch of the 21st-century, comedy, mayhem, and romance ensue. Will Gideon choose to remain in the present with Lucy or return to his own time to ensure history is not altered?

The next book in the series is due out in June. Bewitched is a full length novel that brings us right back to Chatwick, MA. And book 1, Beguiled is available right now. Check out its page here for buy links.

That’s all for now, I hope everyone is staying home and staying safe.

Until Next Time,

Quarantined in Spring

Allow me to start off by saying that I hope everyone is coping well with the lock-down the world seems to be in. I also pray that you and those you love are healthy. We will get through this.

Let’s do a bit of a catch up. I’ve been really good at sending out my newsletter each month. That is where you’ll find the most up to date information and goings on with me. If you’re not subscribing yet, you can do so here.

So, to sum up the last few months, Beguiled was released. Bewitched (Book 2) is finished, edited and scheduled for release in early July. I can’t wait for you to meet Grey and Emily – I had such a good time writing them. The cover reveal for this book will happen in June, and newsletter subscribers will get it first, so keep an eye out.

If you’ve read the anthology Time out of Darkness, you may be familiar with Emily’s cousin Lucy. She was the heroine in my short Spellbound. As a treat, I’ve revisited that story and spruced it up a bit. I will be releasing it on its own for $.99 on May 26 as a lead in to Bewitched. Now, if you’re a newsletter subscriber – you will get this short for FREE (see there are perks to being a subscriber).

The cover reveal for Spellbound will happen in early May with the newsletter subscriber getting it first in May’s newsletter.

Next up is book 3 in the series, Bothered. I think this will also be a fun book to write. Our heroine is a smart-ass, who loves sex and has the most amazing body image despite not being a size 2. I am really excited to get to this, but first I have to actually sit and write it. If all goes well, we will see Bothered releasing in late 2020.

I think that’s all for now. Stay safe and healthy.

All the best and until next time,

Happy 2020!

Yes I know I haven’t been on but I do have a newsletter now that goes out monthly so I’ve been keeping updates going that way. However, in case you haven’t signed up (and why not I do giveaways there) you can do so here. And now for a quick rundown of what’s going on.

Beguiled is OUT – Thanks to everyone who has purchased it and special thanks to those who have left reviews – I always appreciate it.

Bewitched is finished (Thank you NaNoWriMo) and I have begun the editing process on it – I’m looking to a summer release for it.

Following Bewitched will be Bothered – While I was on break in December I started the character outlines for this book and will be outlining the book as I edit Bewitched – if all goes to plan I will begin writing Bothered in the Spring for a winter release (look at me being all proactive!)

Then for Spring of 2021 I hope to have the final book in the Boudoirs and Broomsticks series available – that one is titled Bewildered.

Backlist books:
If you haven’t read my newsletter, then you probably don’t know that Liquid Silver Books who own the rights to Dark Moon Rising and Beneath the Blood Moon has ceased operations. I am attempting to get the rights back to these books but because the closing of the company was due to a death and the company is now in probate, this is proving difficult. I ask then that if anyone is looking to purchase these books in ebook format please hold off on doing so until this is resolved. The plan will be once I get my rights back I will probably update them and rerelease them independantly. This means that book 3 will be coming as well.

I have no timeline on this especially since I have the B&B books in my queue to write (with another series to follow) so we shall see. First things first – getting those rights back.

I think that’s it for now. Until Next Time

Well it’s been a long time coming, My first new release post new job and a period in my life where I really didn’t think I’d do anything new despite the fact that I love to write and share stories.

The Common Elements Romance Project came up and I thought why not? I’d had an idea for a series about witches and I had a trilogy planned out. This was the perfect opportunity to write a short novella prequel. Well that was the thought going in. You see the Common Elements Project was originally going to be novellas – which for me is a challenge in itself – I mean I’ve done it before (with another witch story that is related to this series) but I tend to be long winded – as this particular blog post is proving … I’ll get back on track.

Now my novella is a novel and I love these characters and I hope you do too. On that train of thought I do have a couple of reviews:
1st Elvira rated it 5 stars on Goodreads – You can read her review here.

2nd I was reviewed on Coffee Time Romance by Delane 4 cups! You can read the review here and if you’d like to join in on the conversation you can also do it on the review page.

You can add your own thoughts on Beguiled here

So now I’ve done all I can done and I put the story out into the world. As I’ve said, I really do love this story and I hope you do too. And I REALLY can’t wait to finish the next book in the series BEWITCHED.

Until Next Time,

Well, it has been a minute hasn’t it?

Last time I checked in we were firmly in spring and now here we are at the tail end of summer. I have not been flaking though – nope I have been working diligently … okay not VERY diligently, but I try.

I did make my May 20 deadline of the first edit of Beguiled (Woohoo) it’s just taken another 2 months of rewriting and editing and more tweeking and editing to get it to the point where it is now – which is one more final pass before I can officially put it to bed and start the formatting process for ebook and print. So I am just about on track for where I should be to make the October 29 release date.

I was also spending time tweeking the cover for the book and making sure it was just the way I wanted. I am also learning how to use Photoshop Elements so I can make even better covers going forward and I am having a BLAST with it. Wait have I revealed the cover here on the blog? Oh Jeez ….


As the summer started to come to an end, I was looking forward to attending a con and celebrating my birthday on the west coast. Unfortunately the convention was cancelled at the last minute – still I made the trip (I had the plane ticket so might as well) and I went to Disneyland. Not only that, but I had planned the trip to coincide with a chance to see Tom Hiddleston star in a broadway production (more on that in an upcoming post) and I was NOT giving that up.

So now I am back home and ready for this final readthrough and I hope no more major changes to the story. As for Bewitched, I haven’t really written much more on it, I am about 4.5 chapters in though and I think it’s a pretty solid beginning. I am loving this world and these characters and I cannot WAIT for you to meet them.

So, I suppose that’s all I have for now. Keep a lookout for my recap on Operation Hiddleston (as we call it) and for information on preordering Beguiled if you like.

Until Next Time,

Doing a little check-in

So much has happened in the last couple of weeks. New royal baby … new Avengers movie … I’ve started my next book …

So let’s discuss … first Baby Sussex how cute is he? I love babies, royal or otherwise and it just manages to tickle the fairy tale lover in me. It’s like living a Hallmark Romance movie and we all know how much I love those LOL.

Avengers: Endgame … OMG, what a way to end this amazing run of movies – not going to spoil anything but I will say it was fantastic and well done by everyone involved. I’m very much looking forward to the future of Marvel – no Superhero fatigue here.

And now on to the important stuff – I’ve begun to edit Beguiled – though I’m not nearly as far into it as I should be and that’s my fault (I’ve fallen down a Reign rabbit hole and can’t seem to stop watching it LOL). I am giving myself until May 20 to finish editing – let’s see how that goes. Once I’m done with the first pass through it goes to beta readers and then I’ll tweak it again before looking for an editor to do a run through. All in all, it should be ready for pre-order in September when I go to the Romance Retreat in California 🙂

Then on top of the editing thing, I’ve actually begun writing Bewitched , the follow up to Beguiled and not only have I begun it, but I am actually just under 10K words – not bad for about a week’s worth of work when you consider I work a fulltime job and am trying to spend free time editing. Once Beguiled is with the betas I can jump in more with Bewitched. Bewitched has been a story percolating in my head for a few years so I’m really excited about actually getting to write it 🙂

Until Next Time,

Here we go again

So in my quest to become a more prolific writer I’ve decided to try to write one/edit one so while I edit Beguiled, I have also decided to give in to the nagging muse that was telling me to hurry up and write the next book in the series.

I usually don’t start on a new book until the last one is set and ready to go – which might explain why I’m so slow. Then it usually takes me a month to research and write out a rudimentary plot for it – which really means nothing as I usually divert from the initial plot anyway. However this time I’ve only done a bit of research for the book – it’s not too bad since this book is in the same universe as Beguiled so a lot of the town details and such I already have written in my story bible.

This also means that I will be researching as I go and when I say research I don’t mean diving deep into details … wait yes I do, but it also includes finding names for the shops three of the characters own (especially since they’re next in the order of things), finding out what kinds of chemistry experiments a high school student could do for a final project, researching house layouts and sometimes really mundane things like what kind of motorcyle my hero drives – even if I never mention more than the make, I need to know the model and the color LOL. What i hope this does is make it more real for me so I can make it more real for you.

I am also trying to keep a journal, maybe if I can see where in the process I tend to get derailed, I can head it off in the next one.

I guess that’s it for now, keep an eye on this space to see at what point I crack …

Until Next Time,

Spring Updates

I know it’s been a bit – but I have been more active on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter so you can follow me there.

Let’s see what’s been going on – well The Second Time Around with the new cover is available in all formats and at all online retailers, but that’s old news. New news is good news. I finally finished the first draft of Beguiled *woohoo* I gave myself a deadline of March 31 and began to write the end of the last chapter on Saturday the 30th at about 10 PM and finishing at about 2:30 AM.

Now comes the fun stuff – rewrites and editing. I feel I’m in a good place though and I hope to have the 2nd draft done by the end of April, 1st week of May so it can go out to beta readers for feedback. I’m hoping to get it to an editor shortly after that.

Oh! There’s also a new logo for this series … What do you think?

It won’t be on the cover of Beguiled – that is reserved for the Common Elements logo – but it will be inside the book. I tried putting it on the cover, but it just made it look a little busy – umm yes, the cover for the book is done I’m just not revealing it for another couple of months LOL.

Meanwhile I am starting to plot out various points for the next book. Originally, I was going to ping pong between this series and a new historical series I have an idea for, but the muse is pushing for the next book in the Boudoirs and Broomsticks saga and I must strike while the iron is hot. There are 3 more planned books for this series bringing it to 4 books and one novella (which you can read now in the Time Out of Darkness Anthology).

I’m also going to journal the process of this next book. I saw someone on Facebook kept a sort of writing journal of her process and I thought maybe if I did that I can work out problems as they come along. I won’t do it on the blog because sometimes it’s a line of this is my word count or these are my ideas, but I may summarize once a week or so. Something to keep me blogging more often as I am TERRIBLE at it.

Lastly, in the midst of all this writing, rewriting, editing, and plotting I am ALSO going to redo my home office/writing cave. I have paint and just need to pack everything up and do it ack! I’ll take pics of the before and after 🙂

I think that’s it for now – wish me luck and I will try to blog again as I begin Bewitched in the next few weeks.

Until Next Time,
