The best thing about being a writer is getting to decide what you want to happen. It doesn't always end up the way I plan in the beginning, but I'm satisfied with the places my characters go because I sent them there.(less)

Amazon Prime Day

Tomorrow, July 15, 2015 is Amazon’s Annual Prime Day. Their shopping day which is touted to be bigger than Black Friday. I don’t know if I can believe that, but they’re bound to get quite a bit of traffic and having a promo certainly isn’t going to hurt! So tomorrow and tomorrow ONLY (Or perhaps earlier if the Amazon Gods decide to make it so), BloodMarked will be 99¢ on Amazon! If you don’t see that 99¢ price,... Read more of this blog post »

BloodMarked (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:37PM
Description: A ‘townie’ college student, living off campus with her overprotective mother, Greta Brandt thought everything about her life was right on track. Everything, that is, except for the nightmares. Plaguing her for as long as she can remember, the overwhelming night terrors just won’t let her rest, and when they start filling her waking life, she begins to think she might be losing her fragile grip on reality. When her reality is torn apart, Greta finds herself adrift in a world she thought only existed in her deepest nightmares. The only soul she can cling to, a dark stranger she only knows from her fevered dreams. - – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – - Jaromir Ragnarsson was a shadow in a world that men could not see. Charged with protecting the Brandt women from untold dangers, he had been ever vigilant in his task. Until one night, a fatal mistake threatened to take away mankind’s only chance for survival: Greta Brandt. Now He must find a way to bring Greta into his hidden world, where magic and myth are fact, not fiction. And curses are very, very real.

I hate when a series I love comes to an end, but when that end is this well-thought-out and well-written, it's difficult to be mad!
