Phoenix on the Rise
Hello everyone! I am back with exciting news. As some of you may know, I had a really awful stretch of years where I lost five close family members in five years. The grief and depression spiral, along with the typical work stress many of us experience, meant that I had a rough time writing anything but book proposals for my agent.
Well the good news is that—like a Phoenix on the Rise—I’ve broken through that darkness to reach a happier, more inspired place. I have written more in the past few weeks than I have in years, and it feels fantastic! I’m still working on Fury 4, but it’s on the back burner for a bit as I focus on getting my indie publishing career off the ground. My agent is still shopping books to traditional publishers, but indie publishing is renewing my confidence and passion for writing.
Over the next few months, I will be publishing several books in my Elementals series, being renamed to Phoenix on the Rise. I have the new (and stunning) cover for Book 1 and am sharing it here. The cover art is by Lou Harper with Cover Affairs. She is awesome! I will be making a few edits to that manuscript and then republishing it in Kindle and launching Book 2, Forged from Flame. I’m most of the way through the first draft of that book and should have its cover soon. Those books will be ebook only at first, but I will later make print versions available.
I also plan to publish a steampunk UF and White-Knuckled Fear next year. I will be launching a new, awesome newsletter with fresh content soon, so keep an eye out for that. I will be updating this page (and social media) more often now so please check back often.
And above all, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience and support. Without my readers, I couldn’t do this. You are amazing!
