Wicked Ever After: Releases on Friday!
It's been a busy month full of imposter syndrome, writer's block, and existential dread—yay winter, am I right? 😂 Despite it all, I have some fun things to share! So let's get straight to it, shall we?
I can't believe Wicked Ever After releases in just 3 short days!
Wicked Ever After is a dark fairytale anthology full of retellings based on Beauty & the Beast, Little Mermaid, Rumplestiltskin, Little Red Riding Hood, and more!!
This charity anthology is organized by Grim House Publishing LLC. All proceeds during 2023 will go to SaveLife (Come Back Alive) to help aid those displaced from their homes during the war in Ukraine.
If you've already grabbed your copy: THANK YOU SO MUCH for helping us raise money for people in need during a time of crisis! If you still have yet to grab your copy, there's still time to preorder Wicked Ever After here!
Death & Wicked Monsters Update!
Remember me talking about imposter syndrome, writer's block, and existential dread earlier? Well, I blame this book for all of it 😂
Something about this book has been HARD to wrap my head around. I don't know if it's just because it's been a year since I've been in this world, if my muse is elsewhere, or if it's because this will be the culminating book in my longest series yet, but I have really struggled to get this book going.
With that being said, I decided to push the release date back to April 12th, to give me a little more time to make sure this book is everything it can be!
If you've read the series, you know there are some EPIC threads that I'm needing to weave together: ancient feuds, magic that just disappeared, blood-thirsty noctis (aka vampires), a secret society of warriors, sirens who were shunned, bloodlines that seem to carry power—and that's saying nothing of the dozens of characters that I'm bringing back together from the first three books into this final book!
If everything goes as planned, Death & Wicked Monsters is going to be action-packed high fantasy with twists and turns in nearly every chapter! And I am SO EXCITED to share it with you!
That being said, even with the extension, I still might need more time to finish it.
This might be my biggest book yet, and if I'm being honest, I am still in the plotting stages. So, I just wanted to be upfront and let everyone know that April 12th is a tentative release date.
If the plot lines start falling into place and the words start flowing, then I will do everything in my power to release this book on April 12th. If it's starting to seem like I need more time though, I am going to push the release back again—I just care too much about giving you the best version of this book I possibly can give! Thank you, and I hope you understand 💕
In the meantime, if you're new to this series, you can check out the first book, Shadow Crusade here, about a young woman who joins a legion of demon-hunters to defend the realm, only to discover a dark secret about their history, and herself.
