A Delicate Betrayal Updates!

Okay, I'm a little late sending this out 😅 but A Delicate Betrayal released December 7th! 🎉

Thank you SO MUCH for all the love you've shown this book so far, and a special shout-out to everyone who has been leaving reviews!

I cannot say it enough: REVIEWS SELL BOOKS. Even if it's only a star rating or a quick few words. The more ratings/reviews a book has, the more likely other readers are to take a look at it, so it always means the world to me when I see a new review come in!

If you have read A Delicate Betrayal already, please consider taking a few moments to leave a quick review on Amazon, Goodreads, or Bookbub!

And for my avid KU readers, I just wanted to let you know that A Delicate Betrayal will be available on Kindle Unlimited soon! Unfortunately, due to Amazon's strict guidelines on exclusivity, and the schedule I had for review copies though, I am unable to put it up in KU until April.

I will let you know the second it's live in KU though!


Sequel Announcement & Title Reveal!

Last but not least, I wanted to let you know that A Reign of Ashes, the first official book of the Grimtol series, is up for preorder!

Like many of my readers, since A Delicate Betrayal was so long, you might've forgotten it was intended as a SHORT STORY prequel this entire time, and that the main series was launching later 😅😅🤦🏼‍♀️

Without giving too many spoilers, the rest of the series centers on the aftermath of "The Cursed Night," an apocalyptic event sparked by dark magic! ALL of the characters from ADB will be in the rest of the series, just at varying points in time. 😉

A Reign of Ashes will introduce a new primary character though, Kestrel Graeme, who has spent her first 19 years locked away in a tower, her father trying to keep her hidden from the world. The other MC is the Ashen Princess herself, Princess Elora!! And I am SO HYPED to tell her story after the glimpse you get of her in ADB!! 😍

A Reign of Ashes will continue to be SUPER EPIC, containing elements of found family, coming of age, dragons, forbidden love, and enemies-to-lovers, with this series having a sapphic/bisexual couple, and SO MUCH MENTAL HEALTH REP!!!!

As always, I have the preorder set for $0.99 so that you can grab it at a significant discount first, but the price will switch back to my new $4.99 standard for full novels on Friday! Preorder now to secure your discounted copy!


SURPRISE! Dark Fairytale Anthology

After my challenges with writing my last "short" story... 😅 I wanted to wait before I shared much info on this, but I think I'm finally feeling confident to share:

I have secretly been working on a short story Beauty and the Beast retelling for a dark fairytale charity anthology releasing in February 2023!

This will be unlike any BatB retelling you've ever read!

For this project, I'm drawing heavily from all the gothic fantasy I've been reading these past few months. It's the atmosphere of The Death of Jane Lawrence, mixed with the psychological elements of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, and a strong female MC like Celine from The Beautiful.

I am SO enjoying writing this and can't wait to share more in the upcoming weeks!
