My newest creation just went out to my editor! It’s primary genre will be Fantasy Romance, with Young Adult as its second genre. This is the first time I’ve written a book in first person and quite frankly, it’s been a lot of fun. It’s been quite a different journey to tell a story from the point of view of a single character. Book two of this series is already halfway written. Book three already has its title. And all three books already have release dates for next year.
(for the Dragon’s Call fans reading this, no I have not forgotten the 4th book. You can expect that out sometime in 2018. It’s a more complicated story with a larger cast and it just takes longer to write)
In honor of my birthday, I gift my readers a snippet of Unveiled, the first book in my new Key of Worlds series.
Letting my gaze wander, I looked out across the cemetery. It was a peaceful sort of place. Quiet except for the pattering of rain. Plenty of trees bordered it, dulling the sounds of the city. Bright fall leaves stood out against their darker evergreen neighbors. Other than our little canopy covered group, there was only one other person who stood a few grave sites away staring at a tombstone.
His inky black hair was plastered to his head by the rain which he didn’t seem to notice. I wondered who was in the grave, who he had lost. As if he felt me watching him, the man turned and looked straight at me. A shiver of fear ran down my spine as his molten gold eyes─ a color that couldn’t be natural─ bored into mine. Though he appeared to be in his mid-twenties, there was a hardness to his face that made me wonder if he was older than he looked, and there was nothing friendly in his gaze. Too stubborn to look away, I glared back. His expression turned calculating and slightly amused.
