Blackbird Nominated!

I’m pretty stoked about this, you guys. Blackbird has been nominated for best paranormal romance in the M/M Romance group on goodreads. Just being put in a category with the likes of Jordan L. Hawk and T.J. Klune is an honor, regardless of the winner.

The cover, by Madeline Farlow, has also been nominated as best cover of the year, and she completely deserves it. Thank you for making me an amazing cover, Maddie!

Cover Preview – In Any Light

I’ve been planning to give Isla her own story since it became apparent how important she was to Rowan Harbor and its future. After book six, I realized that in the overall plot, this was the perfect time to tell her story. Her novelette will be released at the same time as book seven of the Rowan Harbor Cycle, Eagle in the Hawthorn, which is the current project!


The death of her mentor has left Isla MacKenzie fumbling in the dark. She’s expected to perform as the sole witch on the town council, but she also might be the only witch in town who can’t use her powers. The one bright spot in her life is Cassidy Simon, the town’s beautiful, charismatic vampire bar owner. She’s not sure what Cassidy wants from their relationship, but she hopes that whatever it is, she can give it. The events of a single day are about to change everything for Isla, and only she can control her own destiny.

The cover, as all Rowan Harbor covers, is by the lovely Madeline Farlow at clause&effect

Asexual Awareness Week

Hey guys, it’s Asexual Awareness Week again, and I thought I’d link the blog article I wrote on the subject last year:

It’s been incredibly important and powerful for me to have a community of people who support aces. Thank you all!

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

-Winston Churchill

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.

C.S. Lewis

The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.

-William Shakespeare

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

-Winston Churchill

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

-Maya Angelou

First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.

-Mahatma Gandhi

Friendship is born at the moment when one man says to another “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .

-C.S. Lewis
