Progress Report: Multi-Cover Reveals

Welcome back to another fun Progress Report. I’ve been busy with NaNo this month so been trying to get a head so I can post these on my blog. I’ve got two covers I want to show you for upcoming books in 2021.

The first is my Vampire Boss. This books is a Mafia Paranormal Romance that is scheduled to release on July 1, 2021. The next is my co-author project with my fiancé. Darkest Depths is our short story collection of camp fire horror stories. This one is scheduled to release on October 20, 2021. Check out the covers and blurbs below. I do have them up on goodreads right now, so please add them to your ‘Want to Read’ list. Thank you.

Vampire Boss
The Morelli Family Duo Book 1
Cruisin’ Around Series

Nario Morelli is the most gorgeous creature Miya has ever seen. When her brother gets in way over his head with another crime lord, she takes extreme measures to save him. She accepts a job as a peacekeeper between rival crime bosses and finds herself a waitress on the OceanTides adults-only cruise line. Too late she realizes she’s walked into the viper’s pit and finds herself surrounded by monsters she never knew existed. 

Nario has led the Morelli clan for over 300 years. In all his years of living, he has only ever loved one woman—his son’s mother. Grieving, he finds himself aboard the OceanTides cruiseliner falling fast for the beautiful waitress he meets on board. By the time he realizes she can’t be trusted, it’s too late. He craves her blood more than he wants money or power.

Will Miya and Nario find a way to come together despite the enemies surrounding them? Will she survive the OceanTides cruise unscathed, or will a werewolf clan take her away from the one she loves most?

Darkest Depths
Sins of Darkness Book 1

In the shadows creatures lurk.
Waiting to drag you into the depths.
You can run. 
You can hide. 
But they will find you in the night.
Just don’t give up because you might die.
Monsters will hunt you even if you’re in the light.

Darkest Depths is filled with stories from your worst nightmares. You will see monsters that exist while you’re awake, pixies tricking you to a deadly fate, and water spirits bent on revenge. 

Close your eyes, hold on tight, because this book will make you fear the night.

These two books are among four I am releasing in 2021. Please add them to your Want to Read list on goodreads. If you want to stay up to date on releases please subscribe to my newsletter. If you want regular sneak peeks join my Facebook group.

Progress Report: Cover Reveal

I know I said I wouldn’t be on my blog this much this month, but I had an announcement I had to share. I decided to join several other authors in the Cruisin’ Around series, put together by INDIE/pendent Book Services. This series is multi-genre with multi-authors with multiple books. Wow that is a mouth full.

I don’t plan to have mine publish until December 1, 2022. That is a long ways off but I do have a cover to show you all. The book is going to have vampires, witches, and werewolves throughout its pages. And this book is going to be my first attempt at a Christmas story romance. I’m super excited and can’t wait to start on it. But for now I will share with you the cover.

Progress Report: November Updates

Greetings everyone. I hope everyone is enjoying the first few weeks of November. I’ve been hard at work writing for NaNoWriMo. I’m presently working on The Seeker’s Core. I’m hoping to get the book done or at least a good chunk of it. This book is part of the ‘Children of Chaos’ series. It also is a part of my Half-Blood Academy series.

I do usually have posts scheduled to go out on my blog throughout the month. Right now with my focus on NaNo I won’t probably make as many this month. I plan to get in the gear of doing more with this blog of mine starting in December. The plan is to try to write something on here every week.


Tuesdays – Sneak Peek Tuesdays (I feature one of my books or a fellow authors’ books).

Thursdays – Tarzinëa Revealed. I plan to do research and share how it influences my novels in process that I am working on in my world of Tarzinëa. I might switch this up with my other series in the works too.

Fridays – Spotlights. I won’t do these as regularly, but I will feature book spotlights and author spotlights on Fridays.

Progress Reports – This is a random post I will do monthly or bi-weekly here on my blog. I will update you all on writing projects and what’s going on with me. I also will try to share some sneak peeks into my current WIP if possible.

As for my current projects I am working on three. The first main one is The Seeker’s Core. The other two are stories. The first is ‘WildFire’. This story is in my Tales of Tarza series starting in May 2021. The other is a story in my Darkest Depths Short Story Collection. It features horror stories that will come alive on Oct. 2021.

I’ll keep you in the loop with my progress on my NaNo project throughout the month on my FB page or in my Street Team. If you want to see how I am doing those two places are the best. I hope you all have a good November and a Happy Thanksgiving. I’ll check in next time I’m able too.


Sneak Peek Tuesday: The Last Ryukyu Noro

Greetings everyone. We have another Sneak Peek Tuesday for you all. Today I am featuring International Bestselling Speculative Fiction Author Stephanie Ayers and her book “The Last Ryukyu Noro”. She was kind enough to let us see inside her book scheduled to go live at retailers on November 13th. Check it out below.

The Last Ryukyu Noro

“Have you made your decision?” the dragon answered.

“No. I’m not ready.” 

“Will you ever be ready, child?”

“Maybe. Anmaa had more time.”

“Yes, she did, but even if she hadn’t, your mother still would have accepted her destiny. Why do you hesitate?”

“It’s a lot of things. It’s just…” Erity’s voice faded without finishing. She stared at the ground. 

“I understand. It’s a commitment you can’t back out of once you agree.” The gentle tone of the dragon’s voice held no judgment.

“Yes. Well, sort of. It’s-it’s not really the commitment. It’s the finality of it.  No kids, no marriage, no life beyond the court.”

“And if you could have that, you would have no issue with the commitment?” 

Erity sighed. Azakai asked a valid question, but she couldn’t give an honest answer. Did she want the life of a royal noro? 

“What would you do with your life if you had a choice?” the dragon asked.

Another valid question she didn’t have an answer for. 

“Consider this: by accepting your destiny, the only change to your future you make is being the last of your line. You can do anything else you wish to do, even as you perform your duty.”

Erity hadn’t considered that. All of her training growing up was about her expected duties. There had never been any other plans for her beyond the life of a noro. Wakumi had lived a regular life for the most part, but there were times her position called her away from her family, sometimes for days. Erity always hated it when her mother was gone. If she had children, they faced the same circumstances. But could she live her life never experiencing motherhood? Would the children of the island be enough for her?

“Once you figure out these answers, you’ll know what you should do. I can’t make them for you, only offer advice that you might not want. You’re safe enough here, Erity. Stay as long as you need to.” The dragon looked at Erity for a moment before beckoning her to join her behind the waterfall. “Join me. No one can pass through the waterfall unless I let them.”

These last words convinced Erity, and she slipped behind the cascading water and disappeared.
