Ok everyone, you can now follow me and the happenings of Reahket on Facebook and Twitter! Got to be honest, that was a nerve wracking experience! I am by nature a little long winded! took me about 40 minutes just too set up the author profile! geez! But it is done so I am firmly rooted in today's social networking system:) So proud of me! Anyway, stay tuned....on face book I plan to start a visual tour of Kepi's and Asher's hometown...or Kincaid Texas! Well, actually Keller Texas which Kincaid was loosely based. No no real or live businesses were actually used!Ok?! Just basically, the landscape, the area and such. So will be adding some pics showing the areas that inspired Kincaid! Anyway, keep an eye out:)

Hello Book Fam,I would like to just post a request, asking any young writers out there, if you have a story, poem, song, rap or what not that you would like to share. I would love for you to submit them to tweenscribe. This is a writing forum for tweens/teens alike. I started three years ago, for my daughter and have since opened it up to other young writers. No there is no charge nor do I receive any type of monetary benefit. I simply started the program to offer a chance for young people to have a safe place to share. This was BEFORE I knew anything about Goodreads!:) Goodreads is awesome, so I do encourage you to share YOUR writings as well here, but also consider tweenscribe. There is also a place for you to upload your own music creations, and videos! (Appropriate material only(You know I had to say it!:)(and parental permission for those under 18 years old for videos:)Also, this is a place to share your favorite fan music and videos also. This is NOT an advertisement,(well, I truly am trying NOT to make it that:) I simply wanted to invite any of you who has always wanted to write,(quick note:) If you write and no one has seen your stuff, you are still a writer! See that and believe in yourself!:)Anyway, If you have written and just needed a platform, I wanted to make you aware that tweenscribe is here for you:) The site is being updated, but you are welcome to check it out, and please even if you do not wish to submit a story, suggestions on music and videos would be helpful:) Because my taste may not be so popular:) LOL...anyway, Guys, here's the link: www.tweenscribe.com stop by:) If you would like to submit, contact me here on Goodreads, or submit the story to tweenscribebooks@gmail.com. I just wanted to reach and ask for those hidden stars to come out and shine:) Was that corny?:) Forgive me, it's early while I am penning this:)

Thanks guys for your time:)

Happy reand AND writing all!:)

Hello everyone! I thought today to celebrate my tour with Night School Vampire Hunter; that I would also share my upcoming project that is to be released in 2013. It is the first in my Mystic Legend series. Chrysalis,(Shadow of the Thunderbird)….now, the books in my Legend series, will be stand alones…not a continuing trilogy or saga…what they will have in common is that they all will be based on a legend from folklore, fiction,mythology etc…

Chrysalis is based on the Native American legends of the great Thunderbird.



Cover and excerpt below:)

Chrysalis (Shadow Of The Thunderbird) by Michelle Cornwell-Jordan


Eagle Landing lies nestled in the midst shrouded valley of Eagle Ridge Mountains. There, 17year old Ayida Blackhawk finds her new home. Ayida, who was sent to live with her stoic Paternal Grandfather after her beloved Grandmother Mabel Simon dies; is forced to find her own rhythm and flow in the small township. She enters Eagle Ridge High School, and there she settles in and with new friends, begins to enjoy her new life. But the forest is where she feels most comfortable, and this is where Ayida meets and falls in love with a strange and beautiful boy, who has many secrets and isn’t what he appears to be; and later, Ayida learns that true evil exist and walks Eagle Ridge High School every day.

Soon, Ayida must battle to save her family, town and the greatest love she will ever know and through this, Ayida’s perception of reality changes forever…


I dreamed of flying again, sailing high above the clouds. The wind was gently stroking my feathers, as I dipped and sailed high above the world and the world’s problems. I was free. I was no longer Ayida Blackhawk, Mabel Simon’s half breed granddaughter, or the weird girl in the back row of Ms Wilson’s fifth period English class at school; the one which was always searching the sky, for what, she did not know. No, I was part of those that raced the wind, they who were among us; superior to we earth dwellers. I was the Hawk, fierce, strong and beautiful. But then the change would happen. My dream was always the same, my flying high and then it will switch and I would be the earth dweller searching the sky once again for them, mostly for him.

I never recognized the boy in my dream, I only saw him from behind. He was tall, lean with sinewy muscles that lined his arms and back. He wore only jeans, he stood barefoot with no shirt and his skin was lighter than mine, a golden toasted color, he had hair the color of a Raven’s feather, which hung to his shoulders. In the dream, the boy always had his back to me, I never saw his face. Although, facing away from me, as he always did, I had a clear, unobstructed view of his back and ….wings.

Without fail, I would feel the initial shock of seeing his wings; they terrified me and thrilled me; those lovely appendages were not white and downy as Angel wings, but were the color of night and storms and fire; with silver and gold strands through the deceptively delicate looking fissures of his powerful wings.

The expanse of his wings were immense, greater than any bird that I have ever seen, seeming to stretch forever when fully opened. There were others like him, all had their backs to me, but they were all partially clad, boys in jeans and no shoes, girls in tank tops or cami’s with jeans or shorts, no shoes.

All seemingly so normal like any other kid at my school, except for the alluring, iridescent beauty of the appendages from their backs. But his, the boy who haunted my dreams stood taller, in the center of them all more lovely than them all. Then with no warning, the boy and the others would transform into birds I had never seen before, they would flap their immense wings and would fly away. At that point, when seeing them leave, when seeing him leave, it felt as if my heart suddenly becomes disconnected from my body, and flies away with him.

In my dream, I stand staring up at the sky, searching for some sign of return that never happens.
