Release Delays in the U.S.

To-Embrace-a-HighlanderDue to technical issues, on Amazon’s part, my book release of To Embrace a Highlander is experiencing delays in the U.S. Availability in other countries was not affected by this issue. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this has caused for my readers. I’ve been in touch with Amazon and they assure me that they are working on the issue as quickly as possible.

Release Date: MacKay’s Book 3

To-Embrace-a-HighlanderTo Embrace a Highlander, MacKay’s Book 3 is set to come out Monday, August 25th. While, the first two books in the series held time travel aspects, Book 3 is set entirely in historical Scotland. Like the first two books a Scottish dialect is used.

This is Conroy MacKay and Fenella Campbell’s story. I hope you enjoy it.

I posted a fully edited excerpt for Book Three in my ongoing historical romance series. To Embrace a Highlander is scheduled for release later this month. I look forward to sharing Conn and Ella’s story with my readers and hope they enjoy the story as much as I did.

Short Note

I wanted to leave a quick note, so that others didn’t believe I had abandoned everything. Due to some personal issues in my everyday life, I’ve not been as active in social media in the last month.

Though, I’m still working on my writing and editing, it is at a slower pace. I find it difficult to wrap my head around my fiction work at times, while still other moments, it’s easier to delve into the fantasy world I’ve created, than deal with the reality that is my life.

I ask my readers and followers to please be patient, and respect the fact that, while I am a writer, I’m also a person. I have real life issues, the same as any other person, and unfortunately it affects my writing and social activity.

Thank you,

Happy 4th of July!

Every year around this time in the U.S. families gather together for a variety of events. In years past, we would have a makeshift reunion. My sisters and brothers would roundup their kids and we’d either gather at someones house or the park and have a big BBQ. Then as the sky began to darken, we’d find a comfortable place to sit and watch the fireworks. Some years we’d fire off our own, and others we’d be entertained by the local show. One thing always remained the same, we did things together as a family.

Now, for the last two years my family has opted out of the fireworks show because of bad experiences. It’s just not that much fun to drive 30-50 miles to the nearest show just to sit in the heat. My kid can’t breath cause all the adults are smoking around the kids. You have the crowds, the long lines, the loud music that upsets the rhythm of your son’s heart., and then there’s the gross porta–potties. All for only a 15 minute fireworks show. Then sit in traffic for two hours trying to get home. So not worth it…

This year we’re going to make hamburgers on the grill and catch a glimpse of the lit sky from our front porch. Though we don’t brave the crowds, we still maintain our family tradition of spending the day in celebration together.

Today is for family and celebration. Go out, have some fun and enjoy your day. Happy 4th of July from me and mine. Stay safe!

Cover Reveal!

Love's-Forbidden-Embrace_CoverCover reveal! I received the finished cover for Love’s Forbidden Embrace over the weekend. This is Book Two in my Volkoff Pack series. Dante and Hailey’s story follows the two as they cross the Atlantic Ocean to meet with the European Council.

They find themselves faced with conspiracies on all sides. A council who likes to play games of manipulation. Vampires who want to bring Dante back into the fold. A purist group that desires to eliminate the abominations of this world.

The biggest battle they face in this war is fought on a personal front. Will they continue to defy the fates, or will they finally give in to their own desire and claim the power that destiny has decreed is theirs?

We have mystery, conspiracy, friendship, and a possibility of love. Alone on a strange continent, surrounded by many, but trusting few. They must work through the complications of their past if they wish to survive.
