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!
Sandy Williams Hi Leanne, I'm so, so close to being finished with another snippet from Aren's POV. It's so fun getting into his head. I'm glad you liked the first…moreHi Leanne, I'm so, so close to being finished with another snippet from Aren's POV. It's so fun getting into his head. I'm glad you liked the first one. 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 finished (for the third time) one of my favorite chapters from Shades of Treason. My hero and heroine are together and alone, and they’ve just been through hell. Always a fun moment, right?

The rest of the book should move faster. I had to work out a lot of inconsistencies in this draft, but I’m pretty sure I had the complete plot in mind by this point in the book, so I don’t have as much to s...

“Fine," he says, his words coming out breathless. "I'll save your precious sword-master, McKenzie. But I will never, ever give you back to him.”
Sandy Williams, The Shadow Reader

“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.”
