Book Release Schedule

This page offers tentative release dates and covers for new books as they become available


New updates are finally here! Thank you all so much for your patience as I’ve been working to catch up after the loss of several family members last summer and traveling throughout this year! Though I fell behind on some projects, I have finally begun to catch up! Read below for updates! Because of editing, cover art, and etc, I am reluctant to post exact release dates as those are subject to change, but Revelation (Redemption 4) is the next release and will release before the end of 2015 followed by City in Ruins (Scribes 4) in January. I am now able to utilize pre-order options on sites and I will post these links as they become available to me! So excited! Hugs and love!

Dancing with the Devil synopsis

Falling ash. Subservient Hellhounds. Dark mirrors and ticking clocks. Such is the life of a daughter of Hecate living in Hell …

Monroe Jacobs isn’t your typical witch. She is strong, her powers growing with each passing day. They are powers that beckon, powers coveted by many, including the man she loves.

Luther Craig is a remorseless Demon ruler in Hell. Governing a kingdom once presided over by his mother, the she-demon Lilith, Luther has everything he’s ever wanted. Power. But his kingdom is at risk, his newfound strength a challenge to the Princes of Hell.

Theirs is a strange relationship, the witch and the Demon, full of passion and need. It’s a relationship that will be tested by the worst kind of obstacles–pride, covetousness, lust,  anger, gluttony, envy, and sloth.

For in the ash-filled shadows of Hell, the Princes are preparing for war. Luther isn’t the only one who wants power and a blonde-haired witch. He’ll have to face the Seven Deadly Sins to keep both.

Revelation: Redemption Series Book 4 (Coming 2014)


Revelation synopsis

There is a prophecy forbidding Angels from ever being with Demons. Love cannot exist between the races. The prophecy wasn’t supposed to concern  Dayton Blainey and Marcas Craig, a hybrid Demon ruler and a Naphil.
But there are those who believe otherwise.
Torn asunder by a fear much larger than themselves and the threat of celestial war, Marcas and Dayton will fight for a love that never should have existed.
