The DARK NOCTURNE series!

It's been such a great summer! I traveled through Europe for a few weeks, and also traveled to the location where my trilogy takes place. It was so fun to see the places I wrote about! Here are a few highlights:






St. Paul’s Academy of the Arts isn’t your usual boarding school....

When November Huntington is sent away to live with her long-lost family, she’s forced to attend a music school for the gifted—which wouldn’t be a problem if November were musical. She’s an athlete through and through, and hates being different.

The kids at the school don’t welcome her; they’re wary of her presence, especially Vincent, a brooding teenage boy involved with dark spirits, who can make time stop when he plays his piano. In fact, all her classmates are all obsessed with playing their instruments. And odd things happen when the do.

But something is off about the school. Deaths have occurred through the years, students showing up dead the same way November's parents were killed—with their throats ripped out.

A killer is on the loose.... November must figure out a way to stop whoever it is, balance her feelings for Vincent, and solve her parents' past before she, too, is numbered among the dead.

The Big List of Small Press!

  

For any of you that know me, know that I’m a huge fan of small press! I’ve found a lot of joy in publishing with small press, and these companies amaze me with the mark they are making in the publishing world today . 


They are each different in their own way. I know for me, with the type of books I write, there are only a handful that I will sub to (that work for me), so you will have to find what’s best for you. I’m not going to take the time to list what they are looking for—I’ll let you go to their websites and do the research—but I will provide the link. Small press can be difficult to research and find, so I hope this list is helpful. If you’d like to add a publisher to this list, let me know!

The Year Of Lightning!!!


Once upon a time… there was a nerdy writer girl who didn't have any friends on twitter:

Nerdy scared girl.

But then she met a friend who was super nice and had the same writerly aspirations/interests as her. (Wanting to take over the universe by using orbital death rays, inventing cake vending machines, respect for evil overlords who executed rebels… yanno, the usual)

Yay Friends!

The two became great friends and even beta read for each other. The girl had beta read some scary books in her day, so she was relieved when her friend had real talent. 



The friends even went to fun conferences together and plotted how some day they would be successful authors and teach classes on world-building, perseverance, and how to turn normal words into slang by adding apostrophes. 


Aside from writing, these two friends were like-minded in other ways. Like how they felt about sports:


Or the questions about ninjas that kept them up at night:


Then something fabulous happened. The girl's friend signed a three-book-deal with Jolly Fish Press and she was SO happy she got to reveal his cover on her blog!!! 


Cue cover reveal:

A Day In The Life With WOVEN…


We all know books can change your life.

But they can also completely disrupt your life… unless you know how to function *while* reading them… especially one you can't put down…


My experience with WOVEN…
Mr. Woven and I spent a few hours practicing the piano together…
We also spent some time on the treadmill together…

I managed to write and read at the same time… 

















My mad face when Mr. Woven beat me at Pictionary…

He even comforted me in the scary part of movies…


















I've lost count with how many different positions I read in…


















A day wouldn't be complete without watching the sunset together…


















And big smiles all around with what a fantastic book WOVEN is!!!!!!














I'm so proud of David Powers King and Michael Jensen. I don't know Michael well (but I know he's wonderful!), and I consider David one of my most favorite friends. He's not only a talented writer, but he's one of the kindest, most genuine people I know. (He's also married to a gorgeous red head, which automatically gives him huge bonus points) :)

My review:


Woven is such a beautiful story!!! This book contains the kind of magic I’ve been missing in stories for a while. I love the uniqueness of the fantasy world… I was sucked in from the start and immersed completely with the plot and characters.  Pacing was great. Writing was beautiful. It’s the kind of story that is timeless---where it will easily hold its own in today’s crowded market and for years to come. Action, adventure, ghosts, magic, romance… I thoroughly enjoyed this!!!


Thanks, DPK for letting me be a part of your Woven tour, and I'm so excited to see more Woven success!!!!
