Official Cover Reveal: Severed Colours by @Dawnaraver

I am so pleased to announce the cover reveal for one of my best friends and mentors, Dawna Raver. I have been there since the beginning, watched Book 1 transform into amazingness and even got to read book 2 before anyone else. Seriously felt just a tad VIP in the whole process. Today is a day that I am so excited to be a part of, Dawna's cover reveal. It's such a sexy cover and after you read the book, it will make even more sense. But, without further ado...
The epic continues…
Quinn Sinclair trusted Arik Morgaine until he betrayed her. Scared and alone, she finds herself delivered into the hands of the evil Morgana le Fay. When Quinn discovers Morgana's plans are beyond demented and seriously depraved—making life with the Changeling seem like a day at the beach—she wonders if death is a better option?

Arik Morgaine vowed he'd save Quinn no matter the price. When his well thought out plans go terribly awry, a desperate and heartbroken Arik is forced to beg the cruel Triarchia for help. Unwilling to go on without his Ă„lskling, he answers a question that irrevocably alters their lives.

Can Arik and Quinn find a way back to each other, or will the price of saving her rip them apart forever?

Severed Colours is set to release on Novemeber 18th. If you haven't had a chance to read book 1 yet, I would recommend picking it up and devouring it immediately. It was a hard act to follow but I think Dawna outdid herself! SO whatcha waiting for.... :) https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18584326-severed-colours  a Rafflecopter giveaway

Taking Risks in the Universe

I've not always been a risk taker. But recently, I turned 30 and have began pondering the questions that could potentially drive a person insane like, what are my life goals? How do I make a difference? You know, the deep philosophical questions that, at times, can seem just a bit cliche'.

As a little girl, I always imagined I would make a difference in the world. That I would help create or make or do something big. At 30, I think of what I've done to influence others and my personal accomplishments. I might have rescued a few cats, been nice to people, given words of wisdom, but on the grand scale of things, can I really say that I've made a difference in the world? Sometimes, one can't focus on the big things. Sometimes, a person should tally all the small good things because those add up too. I am not very religious, but I do feel like the universe gives back to those who do good and positive things for others.

My goal isn't to cure diseases (I am so not qualified for that!), but rather, influence and help change people's lives in a positive manner. When I am no longer here, I hope people can look back and talk about all the good that I did because death is inevitable. What we do today, shapes our future tomorrow. I want to pound the pavement and leave my imprint.

So the non-risk taker is ready to take risks. Does that mean search for a new day job where I am happier? Where I can touch people's life's positively? Write a million books? Plant thousands of trees? Rescue a dozen cats? I am not sure yet, but I am ready to jump off the building and hope to land among the stars in the universe.

The great search begins...

My Works in Progress #southernshadows #thesophisticated #indieBP

Like a fat kid at a buffet, I can't just have one... project that is. I couldn't decide which one I would talk about for this post, so I thought, why not both? Right now, both are equally important.

Southern Shadows Series:

I've been working on this super secret project for a few months. It all started last fall when I pitched this idea to the fabulous Cody Underwood. I said, why don't we both write a themed novel and publish them together? So our readers get a twofer, 2-for-1, type deal. That idea became a reality early 2013, whenever we started drafting, plotting, and sharing our chapters with one another. Part 1 of 3 will release in early September :) Both stories are set in the south, will keep you turning the page, and begging for more! Guaranteed! An updated blurb is coming soon.

(This is Cody and I! We plan to rule the world, while wearing black framed glasses, mind you!)

The Sophisticated (Sophisticated #1):


Money. Bright lights. Sex.

Everything that makes Vegas sinful lures Jennifer Downs. She may look innocent with her pink nails and wavy hair, but the wild electricity of the city pushes away her naivety.

Jennifer contemplates packing her bags and leaving Sin City with her virginity in tow, but not before an unrefusable proposition is made: join the ranks of The Elite and become one of Finn's girls. Transforming into one of the royalties of Vegas essentially means changing everything about herself. If she chooses to climb the slippery social ladder, she will learn all the dirty little secrets that drives clients wild.

Will Jennifer rise to the call girl challenge and play by the rules in a land where money is king and love is prohibited? Or will she lose herself and values in the attempt?

Add to Goodreads

I am in love with the cover. And I have to admit that I am one of the most modest people in real life. The thought of writing something sexual and having people read it and enjoy it makes me, I dunno, blush? But, this story has begged me to write it for over a year and well, after I decided to retire After the Woods, this one became next on my list. It will be fairly short, 65K-80K and I am 25K into it. The characters are scandalous, sexy, and everyone that I've told has said that I should have used a pen name. Although this is a little different from my normal paranormal/fantasy, I am still pushing forward with it. Like I said in my introduction post, I am not bound to a genre, but genre's bind me. :) The only thing that binds my works together is the New Adult category.  

So that's a bit about my current W's-IP. Can't wait to read about all of yours!
