Book release day for TRUTHSONG!

The sequel is here!

I'm ecstatic if still a bit sleepy from working this weekend, LOL! Telyn's new adventure is released into the wild TODAY! The cover art is from Caroline Andrus of Fire and Ice YA, my partners for this second book in the Songmaker series.

Below is the acknowledgements page from the book - if your name is in this, there's a signed paperback for you. I couldn't have done it without you!

A writer only grows in their craft with the help of other writers as critique partners. I’d like to acknowledge J D Abbas for her excellent dissection of my work and help making this book submittable. Thank you, thank you! My early beta readers are incredible assets who keep me focused and enthusiastic with their feedback. Thank you so much to Sandra Warner, Mark Millham, Jessica Burche, Jeri Grove, Gary McNeff and Gina Juliano.
Thank you to my editor, Aubrey Wynne, who guided me through the early days of internet marketing and press releases, blogs and Twitter with my first book. She has helped me decrease my obsessive use of emdashes and ellipses! Her skill is legendary.
Last, I must again thank my family: Mark, Michaela and Gabriel, for recognizing how important writing is to me, sleeping in on mornings when I get up early to write so I can have an extra hour of solitude, and doing the never-ending laundry when Mom is in the throes of a new book. I love you all. 

I will be doing a book tour with the fantastic Roxanne Rhoads of Bewitching Book Tours in August, and there will be giveaways. I will be posting giveaways on Amazon and Goodreads through the month as well- both signed paperback and digital copies, so keep  your eyes open!  

If you haven't read the first book, it's on sale for 99 cents at Amazon, and 50% off at Smashwords through the end of July.

Updates and Truthsong Cover Reveal!

This has been a busy year so far for me! I finished the first draft of DALI, my new adult sci fi, and got some wonderful advice and feedback from my excellent CP's and my developmental editor, the incomparable Jami Nord at Chimera Edits. I'm really stoked about it and have a self-imposed deadline to have it ready to query in September. 

In between edits for DALI, I've been doing final edits for TRUTHSONG, which has a release date of July 24th. I'm excited to have this one almost in the bag. I have notes for the final book in Telyn's adventures, LORD OF THE WOOD, and I have no idea yet when that will be finished. I'm kind of obsessed with Dali at the moment, and I always work better when I'm obsessed.

But without further ado, here is the beautiful cover for TRUTHSONG, once again rendered by Caroline Andrus, cover artist extraordinaire:
