COMING SOON: Serial – Your Lies

I’m so excited about this. Really, so so excited.

This project started a while ago. I’ve been wanting to do a serialized story for a long time. After talking to the fabulous Kris Norris, we decided we were going to do it 🙂 We came up with a common theme – enemies to lovers – one of my favorites!

We’re going to be posting chapters twice a month – the 2nd and 4th Mondays. The first chapter will post next Monday 4/13. 

Kris, who is not only a fabulous author but also a brilliantly talented artist, has designed the most gorgeous covers for these stories.your lies

 


Keeping her magic secret keeps Delia Lancaster safe. That is the one truth among the lies that make up her life. Having left the safety of home for college, Delia clings to that truth. Trusting someone with her heart is difficult enough. Trusting someone with her secret? After everything she’s already lost? Next to impossible. And isn’t it just her luck that the first guy she feels any interest in just happens to be the charming and very attractive face of the anti-magic movement on campus?

His entire life, Maddock Roberts has watched his parents work to relieve magic users of the burden they carry, the disease that corrupts them. Popular and confident, Maddock finds himself a leader in the fight against magic. Eyes on the future, he’s more than ready to take up the mantle and continue the battle beyond the boundaries of campus. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by a pretty face. Particularly when everything about her—her actions, her words—makes him question everything he’s held as truth.

Working with the magic Sympathizers on campus brings Delia face-to-face with Maddock more than she wants. Physical attraction, Delia can handle, but getting to know the man behind it all…and liking what she finds? That’s a problem she doesn’t need. Despite her best efforts, she and Maddock grow closer, and keeping her secret becomes more difficult. But their fledging relationship isn’t the only thing that could be destroyed if the truth comes out. Her life is at risk, and it may already be too late to walk away.


Also, each month, I’ll be doing a giveaway – a $20 Amazon giftcard. Entering is easy peasy. All you need to do is comment on the posted chapters. At the end of the month, I’ll randomly choose a commenter as the winner. So comment on both chapters, and you’re entered twice. 🙂 Kris is doing the same, so there are lots of chances to win. 🙂

I have given a couple peeks into our heroine’s past in a couple of my flash fiction posts.

Kris’ story, Red Sky Dawning, promises to be amazing. i’ve gotten a sneak peak of the beginning…AND I WANT MORE. I know you will, too.

Unknown-2

In a world where magic can destroy kingdoms, there’s no greater force than the bonds of love.

Rylan, son of Roan, and heir to the throne of Ravendale, has been fighting his father’s battles since he was old enough to hold a sword. His abilities as a fire mage gave his kingdom the ultimate weapon, until he seemingly vanished. Left vulnerable, his father erected a magical barrier that has provided Ravendale with a false illusion of peace—until now.

Shunned by her own people for being born with a power no realm has witnessed in over five hundred years, Aelwyn, Princess of Aldhaven, bears the mark of the gods, themselves. Both blessed and cursed, she’s devoted her life to protecting her brother, Aelrik, until he can take his rightful place as King—and finally end the war between her kingdom and Ravendale.

But his mysterious disappearance on the eve of his coronation brings a new scheme to light—one that’s designed to thrust Aldhaven into another millennium of bloody war. Left with no other option, Aelwyn has freed the only man capable of getting her brother back—a brutal, Ravendale warrior captured a century before she was born. But his cooperation comes with a price.

Enemies by heritage, Aelwyn has to put her faith in a man whose conquests are the horrifying legends of her past. Their mission is simple—rescue Aelrik and prevent a new battle from tearing both their worlds apart. There’s just one problem—circumstances of their agreement have put Aelwyn into her enemy’s arms, and she’s seeing a different side of the man history has labeled a murderer. Knowing firsthand that claims are often wrought from fear, she can’t help but strive to see the warrior beneath the lore. The man within the monster. But falling in love is a dangerous choice—one that might break far more than just her heart.

Wednesday Randomness: Love at First Sight, Soul Mates, Destiny?

Happy Wednesday, folks. 🙂 This week we’re talking about love at first sight, soul mates, and destiny…and whether we believe in them.

For me, the short and quick answer is no. As a writer – particularly one who writes romance – the ideas of love at first sight, soul mates and destiny are ones I love and love to work with. In real life, though, I really don’t believe in them.

Attraction at first sight, oh yeah. Love, nah.

Soul mates and destiny… I don’t believe in people being meant for each other or there’s a cosmic force bringing two people together for a greater purpose.

My belief is love and relationships aren’t magical.  They are the result of time and a whole lot of work.
