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.
Scream.
Cry.
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.


Schedule:

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: A Father’s Protection

Welcome to the first Sneak Peek Tuesday. Today I am providing a sneak peek of one of my short stories titled: “A Father’s Protection”. I just recently did a rewrite on this story and published it to the masses. This story is also included in the Tales of Ferrês bundle book.

A Father’s Protection

…DarkDeath looked around the lake and took in the magnificent scenery. Trees circled him and towered high into the sky. Flowers sprang up from the sides of boulders all around the lake. The waterfall was the centerpiece, cascading downward over moss-covered rocks. Mist flew up into the air, glittering in the sunlight. He thought about climbing to the top of the waterfall and wondered what it would feel like to jump into its dark depths. Fire sparked in his eyes. Yeah, a dip sounds nice right about now. In two giant leaps he stood on top of the cliff, looking down upon the water below. A scent familiar to him carried on the breeze. DarkDeath looked out to see a black wolf drawing closer to his location. The black wolf with a white moon crest across her chest stepped up to the pool of water. BlackMoon sat down and looked up at him in all his glory. She tilted her head to the side and cocked an ear. Looks like I get to have an audience.

He backed up a few yards, then crouched down with his rear end up in the air. His nails dug into the rock and he lunged forward. DarkDeath sped to the edge and leaped with all his strength, flying through the air until the water collided with his body. By the goddess this is ice-cold! It seeped into his fur and went up his nose. DarkDeath’s lungs burned as he fought his way towards the surface. He finally broke through, gasping for air then panting like crazy to bring his racing heart back to a steady speed. His head stayed above water as he treaded over to where his daughter sat. That wasn’t the best of decisions.

BlackMoon’s tail wagged as he approached. His paws hit the grass, and he dug his nails into the ground to pull himself free of the water. She stepped back to give him room. Probably a good idea since I need to do this. He smiled as he shook his entire body. Water sprayed everywhere, and BlackMoon was the victim of his assault. DarkDeath let loose a hearty laugh as BlackMoon crouched to her stomach and covered her head with her paws. “Why did you do that?”

“Need to dry off somehow.”…

Tales of Ferrês Blog Tour – Day 2

We are on day three of the tour but I am doing a recap for day two. It was a long fulfilling day with posts on several blogs and comments. I am super excited about how this tour is going so far and look forward to doing more in the future. Release day was awesome I had 21 confirmed pre-orders so that was a big spike for the month in sales. Overall I think the hard work over the last two months is working out in the end. Now to keep the momentum going so it doesn’t die down. I know taking a few months off from publishing something is going to hurt but I want to make sure my next series is done mostly before I start publishing them. Now for an update on yesterday’s posts. Check them out below:

The day is almost here!

Today marks the beginning of the Tales of Ferrês Book Blog Tour. I’m opening up the event with some insight into the process I went through with this bundle book. It began in September 2018 when I released “A Father’s Protection.” I didn’t expect anything to really happen as I released each story in the series. Each month I tried my hardest to stay on schedule. I did have some ups and downs where I missed deadlines. I learned from my mistakes and plan to use my new knowledge in the future.

Now I’m finally writing the final chapter of this journey. Hard to believe after all the stress it is finally coming to a close. You’re probably wondering why you should buy the bundle book since you bought all the short stories prior. Well, the first reason is simple I have a bonus story inside know one has ever seen before. The next reason is I took to rated R stories (The Assassin’s Prophecy and The Wrath of SnowFire) and made them YA. I did a massive rewrite on them that changed the story up quite a bit. Then there is A Father’s Protection. The first story that began it all. It got a complete overhaul. I took constructive feedback from reviews and looked how my writing has changed since 2018. I realized this story didn’t stand up to the others, so I rewrote the entire thing. I added scenes and a whole knew section you will love.

Needless to say I spent the last two months from when “A Powerful Rivalry” release re-doing and rewriting these stories. I even did a fresh edit on all the stories. I just wanted to final book to be the best it could be. Now it is ready for you all to see. I’m super excited and surprised at how many people have shown interest in this book let alone the individual stories. I set out to bring entertainment to people and find my place as an author. I am happy to say I believe I am on the right path to growing my loyal audience. Hoping I keep things going you will see another short story series starting up within this world very soon. But I plan to write most the stories in advance so I don’t have any slip ups on deadlines. Wish me luck on my adventures and I hope you all enjoy Tales of Ferrês. Check out the details below…

Creature’s Weekly: Gargoyles

gargoyle on city tops under moonlightOne of my favorite creatures growing up were gargoyles. I loved the Disney series so much I couldn’t get enough of it. This love for this show is what inspired my Vortex Series though. The Guardians are gargoyles from another realm that protect those of paranormal descent in the human realm. They have human like bodies with skin the color of copper, bluish hide, or bronze. Each gargoyle has a long tail they use for balance an as a weapon. They have razor sharp claws the retract on their hands and feet. They even have razor sharp teeth that almost make them look like vampires and have eyes almost like black wholes.

They are actually a beautiful race that many don’t understand within the human realm. Cassie Armel is one of the first humans to work alongside them without fear. She helps them protect those the Triad seek to destroy, which turns out to be her partner Max. One of the biggest rivalries though is the Guardians verse the werewolves. They just don’t get along probably because they both are a dominant species. This will make working with Garrick and Max interesting for Cassie.

If you haven’t had the chance to check out Gargoyle Sighted the first book in my Vortex Series I strongly suggest you do. Each month I release a new chapter to my subscribers and will offer it as a freebie in ebook format once completed to them. Sign-Up Today to see more about this wonderful species.JENKINS_2019_VORTEX_NEWSLETTER


You ever hear about the first story of how a gargoyle was created on the side of our church buildings? Check this out here:

The priest Romanus struck a deal with villagers of Rouen, promising to take care of the dragon called La Gargouille if they agreed to be baptized Boden Gargoyle Sentineland to build a church. The villagers agreed, and the priest headed to the River Seine, where he subdued the dragon in its cave and led it back to the town to be burned at the stake. The dragon’s head and neck, however, were well-tempered from his fire-breathing habits, and so would not burn. The remnants were instead mounted on the town wall. –hence, the first true gargoyle! (https://www.mythicalrealm.com/creatures/gargoyle.html)Sketch of tattoo art, gargoyle monster sitting in a tree

I didn’t know about gargoyles connection to dragons, but after reading that little story I now know why I love them just as much as dragons. 🙂

Progress Report: Life Gone Crazy

Life has gotten away from me since my last progress report. I’m still hard at work putting the final touches on my Tales of Ferrês Bundle Book. Right now I am working on the bonus story edits. I have come to realize that one of my characters comes off as a really big bully. This means I have to soften the big bad wolf up and hope he doesn’t loose any of his personality through the changes. I would tell you who it is but there would be know fun in that. You will have to read the story yourself to see who it is that tends to be a pain in the neck to write. Speaking of reading…Tales of Ferrês is on Pre-Order at your favorite retailer for the discounted price of $1.99…If you haven’t pre-ordered this book yet you can HERE.BookBrushImage-2020-1-25-12-4933

What are my plans from now on? Well my plans are to finish up the Tales of Ferrês this month and put the final touches on it for its May release. Then I will focus on writing Gargoyle Sighted for my subscribers. I’m hoping to have it almost done by May with the limited time I have to write I might not be able to finish it by the end of May like I wanted. After that I plan to write the next stories in my Tales of Tarza short story series. I already have ones story pretty much written just have to finish it. Then I will work on the other eight. Yeah this next series won’t be as long as Tales of Ferrês. But if I do it right it won’t take me that long to release the stories to the public. I do plan to have them written in advice before I start releasing the stories. I’m hoping to start releasing these stories this fall of 2020. Not sure if I will make my August deadline like I want but it varies by how my writing time increases and decreases.

My goals for this month…

  1. Finish edits on Bonus Story
  2. Finish edits on The Assassin’s Prophecy, The Wrath of SnowFire and A Father’s Protection
  3. Write the next chapter in Gargoyle Sighted.
  4. See how far I can get in Gargoyle Sighted before the end of the month.

This month is trying already and I’m hoping to make headway through things. Wish me luck and I hope everyone stays safe and healthy through these trying times.
