Swirling Secrets #2 is out!! Whoot!

Cue happy dance!

I'm so excited that it's finally out, and to be honest, it's all still a bit surreal to me. I'm still processing the fact I published the first book at all. O.O 
(I take a while to process things lol)

At the moment, it's available for Kindle on Amazon. I'm planning to have it available in print copy by the end of the month, hopefully within the next couple of weeks.

I'm also adding it to Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords! Those will also be up by the end up by the end of the month.

Check it out!!

Daughter of Hades #1

~Release Date: May 13th 2016

~Length: 298 Pages

~Genres: Young Adult, Urban Fantasy 

Chrys has been in the Underworld for thousands of years, hidden away by her father, Hades, from all of the other gods. He's afraid that if someone finds out about her, they will destroy her because of the dichotomous power that she holds, the power of life and death. So she has remained in the Palace of Hades all her life, making very few friends and always bored out of her mind.

Huntley would have never guessed that after he died he would wake up with a beautiful girl standing over him. And that she would be the Dark Lord of the Underworld's daughter. Yet, for some reason, she keeps him around as her tutor, as if he knows anything about the world. But Huntley knows that all she really wants is a friend; being trapped in the Underworld can get pretty lonely. 

That is, until Chrys decides she wants to run away to the human world after a big fight with her mother Persephone. Chrys claims her father is just over reacting and that nothing bad will come of it. There's no way that the gods will notice she's there for only a couple of days...right?

The perfect guy, the perfect location. What could go wrong?

Hadley Daniels’s life seems perfect…

Before the beginning of sophomore year of high school, Hadley and her family move to a beautiful beach town, where she makes amazing new friends and lands the boyfriend of her dreams—Nick Jenkins. He’s the kind of guy every girl swoons over, and it isn’t long until Hadley discovers some are still swooning.

A famous ex-girlfriend makes matters more complicated…

After some time dating, Hadley and Nick form a deep bond. But insecurity sets in when Hadley discovers her boyfriend once had a huge crush on her friend—who just happens to be the beautiful former teen TV star, Simone Hendrickson.

The past is the past—or so they say…

Hadley confronts Nick, who confesses about his history with Simone. Though he claims to only have eyes for Hadley now, it’s hard to believe—especially when she’s blindsided with the news that Nick and Simone kissed after school.

Now Hadley must determine who is telling the truth. Love, betrayal, friendship…who needs soap opera drama when you’re busy competing with a star?

Hiya guys! I hope you're all doing well, and didn't miss me too much on my b-day week break. ;)

I've got a fun post for you today - a fairytale retelling of Peter Pan!! Who doesn't love Peter? I know I do.

This book sounds really interesting, and the author seems awesome! I mean, just look at her picture, and you'll see what I mean. Infectious smile, and I'm sure equally infectious writing.

 The Neverland Wars
~Released: May 9th 2016

~Publisher: Clean Teen Publishing

~Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Fairytale Retelling

Magic can do a lot—give you flight, show you mermaids, help you taste the stars, and… solve the budget crisis? That's what the grown-ups will do with it if they ever make it to Neverland to steal its magic and bring their children home.

However, Gwen doesn't know this. She's just a sixteen-year-old girl with a place on the debate team and a powerful crush on Jay, the soon-to-be homecoming king. She doesn't know her little sister could actually run away with Peter Pan, or that she might have to chase after her to bring her home safe. Gwen will find out though—and when she does, she'll discover she's in the middle of a looming war between Neverland and reality.

She'll be out of place as a teenager in Neverland, but she won't be the only one. Peter Pan's constant treks back to the mainland have slowly aged him into adolescence as well. Soon, Gwen will have to decide whether she's going to join impish, playful Peter in his fight for eternal youth… or if she's going to scramble back to reality in time for the homecoming dance.
