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)

Aren's POV #3

Warning: Unedited writing commences below.

Aren’s POV #3

Falling into a fissure without a plan is never a good idea. It’s even worse when the deadliest shadow-reader in the Realm is nearby. The shock of the In-Between makes it impossible to arrange a strategic exit. Fae instinctively open gateways to personal places, places that feel like home.

In my case, that’s my latest encampment.

“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.”
