Always Books


So as always, I have been a very busy author, and yet I have no idea where my time goes. 

This website is a love/hate relationship for me. Haha. I am not tech-savvy at all and have lots of assistance when it comes to creating the pages and content that goes on them. 

I did add an art page that I will frequently be updating over the next few months as it gets closer to my book being released. 

I will also soon be adding a shop page with direct links to purchasing books and extra items from me like bookmarks and stickers that will all be coming soon.

In the meantime, though, I do have a few exciting announcements. The first is that I’ve finally found an artist to do the official art for my series. So below is a sneak peek for all of you at my character Diana and the sticker art, which will soon be available.

And more good news is that November is going to be a very busy month! Myself, as well as a variety of different authors, are all participating in the November TBR takeover challenge on TikTok.

For those interested, it’s a massive event on TikTok with a great list of authors to choose from. And the best part is, it’s free books for everyone who signs up. So you can select as many books as you want in exchange for doing reviews.

My short story, The Gorgon and the Stranger, is on the list. 

But here are some books from some amazing authors and friends I’ve made in the book community that if you haven’t read, you need to! All these books will be available for the November TBR takeover event.

Nicola Ormerod is the kindest person you will ever meet. This woman works hard to create these fantastic events on TikTok, as well as write books.

She’s got a fantasy story Rapientium coming out this time, and if it’s anything like Red’s Robin, I’ll devour this book too.

Tuppence by E.S Barrison is an amazing little retelling of cinderella. If you’re like me and you’ve already read this one, she’s got out another series called The Mist Keeper’s Apprentice that her second book just recently released. 

The High Mountain Court from A.K Mulford is hitting the top of the charts in fantasy on Amazon. This author has created an epic fantasy world that’s a great mash-up between ACOTR and Harry Potter.

Souls by Megan Wolters has been on my TBR list forever! And I will get to it by November. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things and can’t wait.

Bloodlet by T.S Howard. If you haven’t heard of this book on Booktok, I don’t know where you’ve been. It’s a great dark fantasy, and the best part is the last book just recently came out. So once you fly through this one, the next two are available!

On my dystopian list is To Have or Have Not by Jared K. Chapman. This book, too, has been on my TBR. I can not wait to get into this exciting story.

These are just a few books on this huge list, so if you’re interested, sign up below!
