Happy Release Day!

Hello everyone, and Happy Release Day!

Ikon is now, finally out in the world and I couldn't be happier!
It was absolutely a labor of love, and I am overjoyed with the way that it turned out. I hope you all enjoy it!

                                                             Fighter. Survivor. Outcast

The werewolf Anastasia, illegitimate daughter of Erszebet Bathory, is able to meet her notorious mother at last. She discovers a pack of werewolves living in the forests around Csejthe and joins their ranks, forgetting her human life and her daughter.

Katrine and the Danse Macabre are set to travel to Moscow in pursuit of a mysterious creature rumored to be terrorizing the area. The troupe receives a chilly reception from the local vampires, who are suspicious of their associate Nikoli Osomov. Katherine also meets a member of the shadowy Order of the Dragon, who casts doubts on the motives of her cousin Gabor.

Meanwhile, the blood drinker Klara van Dores has been sold into slavery as punishment for her crimes against the Danse Macabre. Never one to submit to the will of others, she slaughters her new master and frees her fellow servants. But her behavior won't go unnoticed for long, and her new friend Olivia fears she may have been better off a slave.

                                                           By Ravin Tija Maurice

eeek! I am still pinching myself!  
Having one book out is one thing, but two. Two makes it all the more real. Like I can stick my neck out and say 'Here I am. I am substantial. And I'm not going anywhere!'

I can't wait to hear what you guys think. So please, give me a shout when you're done! Come check me out over on my new facebook author page, I'd love to chat anytime!

Author Page

Hi all!

So I finally got my author facebook page up!

Why didn't I have one before you ask?
Well, when it was only one book and I didn't know where things were headed I thought it was more important to focus on the book and not me. But now! Now! Now that it will be two I feel like it's time.

Here is the link. Come by and give it a like if you are a facebook user.

Sharing Some Wisdom

Hello dear readers!

I saw this amazing video on facebook yesterday that I wanted to share with you all. It is actress Jada Pinkett Smith talking about being a wife and mom.

She discusses finding balance and weighing helping her family reach their dreams while still trying to reach her own dreams, and something in her words really spoke to me.
I think this is an important subject and something that all wives and mothers need to hear.
We are programed, at some point I don't know when, to believe that wanting things for ourselves is wrong and selfish when you have a husband and family. The key is finding balance, and I think it is summed up quite beautifully in this video.

Please enjoy, and let me know your thoughts!

Book 2

Hello dear readers

So I wanted to give you all an update, especially those who don't follow me on social media.

The title for Book 2 is Ikon and I am working on a January 2016 release!

Isn't it January now? Why, yes it is! I don't have a firmed up date yet but it will be this month baring any major issues. The ebook will come first with the paperback to follow shortly after. My cover artist (RMGraphX) and I have been talking and she is cooking up something awesome, I can't wait for you guys to see it!

Once I have all of that pulled together I plan on doing some rafflecopter giveaways so keep an eye out here because those will be coming up soon.

Ikon has been a labour of love for me, and I hope you guys love it as much as I do. It's a bit different for me and I hope it works well! I can't wait for you guys to read it.

I will be back on here updating as much as I can, I apologise for being so neglectful.

Make sure you pick up your copy of Rebirth before Ikon comes out, so you're all caught up! It's available in ebook and paperback, check the links in the sidebar!
