Fourteen Days Until the Release of ENTWINED! #IWSG



Hi everyone! 

I know many of you are particpating in the A to Z Challenge. I have to admit I wasn't as brave as Alex to try to keep up with a book releasing this month and the challenge. I'll still bounce around and read as many posts as I can. 

For those who aren't familiar with Insecure Writer's Support Group, just follow the link. It's a wonderful group. 


What am I insecure about?

The third book in my serious releases April 14th. That means lots of things happening this month and I'm sure I'll forget something. Thankfully, my publisher is organizing the cover reveal (which is April 2nd!) and release day blitz. Of course, I've had those dreams that I'll be all dressed up and no one will come to my party or something will go wrong at the last minute. I keep telling myself to breathe and to focus on what I can control.

Speaking of release day, We still need campaigners for the release day Thunderclap. If you'd like to help out, just follow the link below. I'd really appreciate the support. If you already joined, thank you!



And I've been busy planning giveaways, pulling excerpts, creating promo images, and writing post. If anyone would like to have me on their blog, I'd be happy to do a guest post or provide an excerpt. Or, you can sign up for the blitz and receive a simple post from my publisher.

Well, I think that's enough for me to be insecure about this month. How about you? Any insecurities? Are you a part of the A to Z Challenge? What's your theme?  

While I'm not participating in the challenge, I look forward to reading posts.

Excerpt & Giveaway: Command The Tides by Wren Handman


A romantic fantasy novel by Wren Handman



Excerpt: 

     “David, help Ryan cover the trail. I’ll help Sarah take Darren. Taya, take my sword and cover us.”

     “The girl? She’s like to cut off her own feet as an enemy!” Liam hissed. Taya felt her face grow hot. As always when she felt embarrassment closing in, she covered it with anger. She grabbed Jeremy’s sword by the hilt, drawing it out with one smooth motion and swinging it down so the point touched the ground just an inch in front of Liam’s foot. She felt Jeremy take a staggering step backward, startled.

     “I will not only cut our enemy, I will cut the feet off of our enemy and leave them to bleed in the dirt. I haven’t let us down yet, and I certainly don’t intend to start now. And if you ever call me ‘the girl’ again, I will show you exactly what I am expert at cutting off,” she snarled, and then she hoisted the sword and spun on her heel, storming away before he could react.

     She stood at the edge of their sad, sodden company, the hilt of the sword resting snugly in the palm of her hand, her back straight and her head held high, and the only thing going through her mind was the fact she had absolutely, completely, no idea how to use a sword.

Coming April 14th: ENTWINED, book three in the Embrace Series

Just 35 days until the release of ENTWINED!
book three in the Embrace Series, 

It's now on Goodreads! Details on the cover reveal coming soon.


About book three:

Only a few months after embracing her magical powers, defeating a dark witch, and banishing a faerie prince back to his realm, sixteen-year-old Madison Riley is back in book three of the Embrace series—and doing the bidding of a demon. She has no choice but to do so if she wants him to honor the deal they made to save the life of someone she loves. Twenty years of service to a creature of hell is a big price, but one she’s willing to pay. And it sure beats the alternative: selling her soul.

But life gets complicated when you’re the beck-and-call witch of a crossroad demon. Caden, the demon she serves, wants to become master of Death Himself, and with Madison at his side he has the means to do it. 

It’s up to Madison and her coven to foil his plans, but Caden’s intentions aren't entirely evil—and the kisses he seals his deals with aren’t too bad either. As Caden's motives test Madison’s trust, his shameful flirting tries her boyfriend Isaac’s patience. But being caught between two supernatural hotties is perhaps the least of her concerns when the coven’s interference in Caden’s plot might just cost Madison her life and unleash hell on earth.

Teaser 2:

His voice bounced off the walls, making it impossible to tell where he was.
Until his cold breath skimmed the back of my neck. I spun around.
“I am not an object up for auction to the highest bidder,” I spat either to his face or to thin air. It was impossible to tell.
You don’t want to upset me further than I am, or you won’t be the only Riley I claim as my own.
Fear paralyzed me. “You wouldn’t.”

     Long fingers wrapped around my biceps, pinning my arms to my side. Reed materialized, tugging me upward so that I was on my toes, my ear inches from his mouth. “A better question would be, have I already? Stop fighting and come with me.”

One more please: #IWSG



Hi everyone! 


Welcome to Insecure Writer's Support Group. We are a group writers who share our doubts and encouragements. I'd like to thank Alex Cavanaugh and this month's hosts. Learn more about the group here.



So, it's happened. Entwined, book three in my Embrace Series, isn't out yet and someone has asked if I'm working on book four. Actually, she said, "Please tell me you're working on book 4." I'm honored and thrilled and OMG ecstatic to know that there is interest in a fourth book, because yes! I too I'm dying to know what Madison does next. I've had glimpses of what she'll face. Not to mention her BFF has a story all her own that is begging to be told. But I haven't started either book. Here's were my insecurity comes in. I adore the characters in these books and love writing about them, but they haven't found as large of an audience as I would like them to. Now, I'm inclined to write the next book for me and the readers who have found these novels. There's a certain demon who wouldn't mind ruffling my brave protagonist's magical feathers even more than he has already. And truth be told, I want to see what Madison does about it. But I also have ideas for other books outside of this series. Do I step back into what's familiar or should I flush out a new idea? These questions have been in the back of my mind as I work on my YA Realistic Romance, which is close to done. But now that someone asked about more books, well... that is how books two and three came to be. I really need someone to push me in one direction or the other. Anyone out there feel like giving me a shove? Please do!

Speaking of ENTWINED, there's just 41 days to its release date! Cover reveal should be coming soon. I'll keep you posted!

Oh, and yesterday was my birthday, which is why I'm so chipper this week. I'm not sure if that's coming across in this post, but I am. After all, I'm another year younger. (I refuse to age in the other direction. What would be the fun in that?)

I'd love to hear what you'd do regarding the series. How's your writing coming along? Any insecurities? Is there an upcoming event your excited about?

Thanks for stopping by!
