Time Never Stops


I have been M. I. A. lately on my website and social media. It has been a busy few weeks with moving and getting resettled, but I am happy to say everything went smoothly, and now it’s time for me to get back to it.

Since the launch of The Gorgon and the Stranger, it has done very well, and the personal feedback I’ve gotten has been excellent and very kind. I hope you all got the chance to read it and enjoyed the story.

I am pleased to announce, perhaps a little too late, that Amazon finally price matched it, so now my book is free on all the available retail sites.

My main book in the Bright One Series, Through the Silent Forest, is coming along nicely. It’s with my editor for the first round of editing, and I am both nervous and excited to see what I get back.

While I have been missing, I haven’t been idle, I have several works in progress that aren’t close enough to being finished yet to announce officially but that are promising, so I hope to give some insight into those future projects soon.

I have also been busy with Beta and ARC reading for various fellow authors, which I have enjoyed immensely.

Here are some book recommendations for you all to keep you busy until next time.

Broken by the Gladiator By Nicola Rose. 

This one is a very steamy forbidden romance. Please read the trigger warnings and the reviews before you get this one. For fans of Den of Vipers, this is right up your alley.

Tuppence by E.S Barrison

This is a short story, a twisted take on the classic Cinderella story. This one was an interesting read for those of you who like the darker original stories instead of the fluffy versions.

Josie – Book one of the Deceptions Series by Bobbi Jo Green

This book is not my typical read, but I enjoyed it very much. We have all been young and in love once upon a time, and no matter how that turns out, it sticks with you and changes you. This book is about that first love, and while it isn’t your typical romance, I found myself hooked on the story from the very beginning. Again please read the trigger warnings before you read this book.

These next books that I recommend I beta read and will be coming out soon to publication, so I recommend checking out these authors and following them on social media for more details of their upcoming work.

 Bloody Escape by Freya Amber

I loved this book. It’s a slow build reverse harem. The main character, Briar, is a girl after my own heart. She’s sassy and a little crazy, and I fell in love with her in the very first chapter. This book was initially already released, but the author pulled it to make edits and re-polish the story. So it is coming soon to re-release.

Shinto Slash- The Parade of Demons by Jerico Black

Jerico Black is an amazingly sweet author, and it has been a privilege to work with him on his upcoming story. Shinto Slash is for fans of all things anime and manga. I can’t emphasize enough how much I enjoyed reading this book. I’m a huge fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Fairytail, and this book had all those good things. It was an epic adventure story with samurai and monsters that I fell in love with and couldn’t wait for more.

Happy reading!
