World Mental Health Day

Since itโ€™s World Mental Health Day, Iโ€™m sharing this scene from The Assassins of Light againโ€”as a reminder that mental illness doesnโ€™t mean youโ€™re less or weak or any other stigma people have attached to it. Itโ€™s okay to not be okay. ๐Ÿ’™

If you follow me on social media, you probably know that I struggle a lot with mental illness, too. That’s why it’s so important to me to write characters like Rose, who have PTSD and depressionโ€”or other mental illnesses. I want you to know that, even if you feel alone in this, you’re not. ๐Ÿ’™ And if you ever need internet hugs, I’m happy to send them. ๐Ÿ’™ Love you guys. Take care of yourselves. ๐Ÿ’™

Happy International Lesbian Day!

Happy International Lesbian Day from your local, awkward, writing-obsessed lesbian! ๐Ÿ˜… I hope you all had a good day! ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ

And to celebrate, here’s the character aesthetic for our favorite lesbian, seductive, Viking-warrior-vampire: Kara! โค๏ธ (At least I hope she’s our favorite. That was awfully specific. ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Quote from The Reign of Darkness, Book Four of the Creatures of Darkness Series.

THE REIGN OF DARKNESS Cover/Summary

๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค Here it is! ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

Blurb/Summary:

As war breaks out between vampires and humans, the worldโ€™s most powerful vampire, Rose Foster, and her girlfriend, Kara Unnarsdรณttir, take refuge in a hidden kingdom, in order to save the life of a friend. There, Rose finds that, despite having never heard of this kingdom before, everyone there seems to know her. Not only that, but theyโ€™re prepared to follow her into battle. Yet, they refuse to tell her why.

Supernatural world war rages on in their absence, threatening the extinction of both species. Rose soon realizes that, even though she doesnโ€™t want the power, if she wants to prevent genocide, sheโ€™ll have to take her place as a Commander of Power.

But when Kara uncovers a terrifying piece of information about Rose, she must decide, once and for all, if her loyalty to the woman she loves is strong enough to withstand even the end of the world. Or if itโ€™s time to do what she does best: betrayal.

In this final installment of the Creatures of Darkness series, the Eklektos will either save the world or destroy it.

Coming in September. ๐Ÿ–ค

P.S. – If youโ€™ve read The Assassins of Light, you might know who that is on the cover. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ–ค

P.S. Part 2: You may have seen a very, very rough draft version of this cover before, especially if you’re on Twitter. ๐Ÿ–ค This one is the final version. ๐Ÿ–ค Or close-to-final version(?) if my anxiety changes its mind. ๐Ÿ˜…

Teaser: Random Banter

Random Rose and Kara banter (that I forgot to post last week ๐Ÿ˜…).

P.S. – If my anxiety ever shuts up, Iโ€™m going to post a cover/summary reveal for The Reign of Darkness. Iโ€™ll try to sneak-post it while itโ€™s sleeping. Shhhhhhh.

Teaser: Monsters

Rose and Kara are like the epitome of the there-are-two-kinds-of-people thing. ๐Ÿ˜…

Happy Teaser Day! ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ–ค

P.S. – I’m going to try to catch up the website some, so you might be getting a few more teasers this week. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ–ค

Pride Month: Announcements

Happy Pride Month! โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

A couple of announcements:

1) Iโ€™m participating in two different Pride-themed hashtag games over on Twitter this month. So, Iโ€™ll be talking about Rose and Kara, The Reign of Darkness, writing, happy, gay stuff, etc., all month over there, if youโ€™re interested. โค๏ธ (I think my Twitter feed also shows up on my website, if you donโ€™t have Twitter?) ๐Ÿงก

2) Also, The Reign of Darkness (Book Four of the Creatures of Darkness Series) should be released this month. ๐Ÿ’› (I tried for May. I tried so hard. But May just…sucked. Bad. So…so bad.) But (fingers crossed) this month!!! ๐Ÿ’š Iโ€™ll announce a specific date soon. ๐Ÿ’™

P.S. – And to all of my LGBTQ+ friends and readers, I hope you have the best month! ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ Love you guys! ๐Ÿ’œ
