Hi Krystien,
I'm so happy you loved the shadow reader books. I miss McKenzie and the fae and hope to write a few short stories and alternate POV scenes in that world again soon. I have one alternate POV from Aren on my website if you want to check it out, and I'm working on another. I just can't get that world out of my mind. :-)
As for books, my current project is a space urban fantasy - or science fiction romance. It has a kickbutt heroine who's been charged with murder and treason, and who can’t deny the charges because she’s been telepathically silenced. There's a hot hero and a bunch of action, and I'm super excited about it. I'm aiming for a January 2015 release day.
Thanks for the question, and that's so much for reading!
Cheers!

I'll try to finish the next soon, and will hopefully find time to write more after it. Thanks for your question, and for reading the Shadow Reader books!(less)

I’m not directly imparting wisdom here. Instead, I’m pointing you to Joanna Bourne’s blog.


Joanna Bourne might be my favorite historical romance author. She’s at the very least in the top three, and every time I read one of her books, I learn something new. Her descriptions of characters’ appearances, their actions and mannerisms, are all unique and beautiful and profound. Not only that, but she...

All three of those things usually count against books. I prefer romance, full length novels, and to read

I don't read many short stories, mainly because they don't keep my attention as well as novels do. But if authors are writing short stories as good as this one, I think I might need to change my tune. This novella was excellent.

“If I were a good man,” he says, “I’d acknowledge that Taltrayn is an honorable fae, that he loves you and would take care of you. I’d step down and let you have the man you’ve always wanted, but, McKenzie, I’m not as good as Taltrayn. I never will be, and I can’t step down. I’ll fight for the chance to be with you.”
