This week I’m celebrating continued progress with Book II: Trouble By Any Other Name. I’m getting closer to finishing up the edits. I’ve been working with Sue Archer, copy editor extraordinaire, and I couldn’t be happier with her efforts. I’ve given my cover design to the inimitable Carrie Butler of Forward Authority Design Services to turn into a professional-looking cover. Getting closer!


I’m also celebrating the release of Kate Sparkes’ new book — Sworn. Sworn is the third book in the Bound trilogy. I’ve added it to my TBR list. Looking forward to reading it!

Not every fairy tale ends with “happily ever after.”

The plan was simple: Find Ulric, the lost king of Tyrea, then return him to Luid to reclaim his throne from the tyrant who stole it. But though Aren, Rowan, and Nox accomplished the first part of their task, the rest is proving to be more complicated than any of them imagined.

Severn won’t give up his throne without a fight. Worse, it seems Ulric did not fare as well during his years in captivity as he’s led everyone to believe—and Rowan may not have escaped unscathed, either.

If Nox doesn’t find a cure for the king’s mysterious ailment, Aren will be forced to challenge Severn for the crown. It’s a battle Aren has little hope of winning. And if he does, it will cost him the love and the freedom he’s fought so hard to gain.

Check it out on Goodreads or the retailer of your choice!
