Getting Close

Hello my fellow readers!

We are getting closer to the release of Tarragon: Dragon Bane, which happens May 5th. I hope you are as excited as I about this!

To help lead up to the release, we are having a few online events, about one a month.

January, we have a book blitz for Tarragon: Key Keeper, and the ebook version is only $.99 US for the entire month! So if you haven't gotten your copy, get it now!

In February, we will have another book blitz but for Tarragon: Dragon Mage. This will occur on February 23rd. You can still sign up to help spread the word either via blog or facebook. The ebook version of Dragon Mage will be $.99 US during the month of February.

And then, finally! You will have the opportunity to see the cover for Tarragon: Dragon Bane in this lovely cover reveal, which you can also sign up for here.

And this all leads up to the release and online blog tour for Tarragon: Dragon Bane on May 5th! Event links will be shared at a later date so keep your eyes peeled!

Who's ready for Christmas?

I admit I'm not really ready for Christmas, at least as far as having everything done, T's crossed, I's dotted and all that. I have a big list of things I want to get done, though I somehow doubt that will happen.

Just as an idea, here's what I'm hoping to get done before Christmas.

Finish preparing a presentation for the Preston Royal Branch Library in Dallas, TX. (Presentation occurs January 9, 2018)

Finish current edit of Tarragon: Dragon Bane, along with basic formatting

Clean the entire house, top to bottom, including decluttering

Edit more scripts for my radio drama production (non-profit, more kicks and giggles than anything)

And get ready for the holidays

How about you guys?  What kinds of things are you hoping to get accomplished for the holiday season?

Here comes Halloween

Well friends, it looks like we didn't do so great with the promotional efforts, but that's okay. It was a busy month.

It's now the month of October, which means Halloween is on the horizon!

Scary tales and ghost and such will soon, if they haven't already, be floating around. And who doesn't love a good ghost story? Check out Dorcha Adhmad for free and share it with your friends. Let's make this a Halloween to remember!

Welcome to September!

Hello Readers!

Autumn is almost upon. (Officially Sept 22, but who's counting?) That means pumpkin spice, cooler weather (hopefully), and cuddling up with something you love, hopefully a good book 

September is my birthday month and as such, I'd like to have a contest. How well it goes depends entirely on you. Since I've gone back to teaching I haven't had as much time to promote my books as I'd have liked, so I'd love a helping hand.

Here's the challenge: Spread the word.

Yep. Share a link, fan art, your favorite snippets, etc. Tag them with the following hashtags on either Twitter or Facebook so I can find them:

For the Tarragon Trilogy: #TarragonTrilogy
For Kas: #kasthebook
For The Unknown Elf: #UnknownElf
For Bob The Littlest Dinosaur: #BobTheDinosaur

And, as an added bonus, Dorcha Adhmad: #dorchaAdhmad, which is always free in ebook format.

Each share, tweet, etc of anything related, with those hashtags, will count as an entry towards some cool prizes. And they are as follows:

A dragon pendant necklace
A paperback copy of Tarragon: Key Keeper
An ebook of your choosing (
Kas, Dragon Mage, Key Keeper, The Unknown Elf)
A Tarragon map poster
A set of Tarragon: Key Keeper and Dragon Mage bookmarks
A paperback copy of Bob The Littlest Dinosaur

The contest begins Labor Day and ends September 30th so get to spreading the word!

This contest is open to all residents of the United States and our International friends. Contestants under the age of 18 must have permission from an adult to participate.
You do not need to buy a copy of any of my books to enter.

Getting Ready For School

Hey all!  School is just around the corner and I wanted to take this opportunity to ask y'all are doing to get ready for school.

As a preschool teacher, I have to set up a classroom for my new students, who will be coming in a little less than three weeks. Exciting! There are also a ton of books I want to get ready for my new kids to look at, mostly picture books since they don't know how to read yet.

What's your favorite go-to book?

I'd like to share a few of mine:

Deerskin by Robin McKinley

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien

The Bogart by Susan Cooper

Also, I just thought I'd share that I"m working on editing the first draft of the final book of the Tarragon Trilogy, Dragon Bane. It will be released Spring of 2018, with a cover reveal a few months before its release.
