A room without books is like a body without a soul.

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.
Meanwhile, I’ve been planning Adder and Willow, the next installment in The Rowan Harbor Cycle, as well as a certain secret project that shall remain nameless until way closer to completion. (hint: there may be witches and a coffee shop involved.)
Hope everyone’s having a fabulous weekend!
It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me, and I’m procrastinating, so I thought I’d come show you what I’m working on.
The lovely and talented Madeline Farlow is doing the covers for The Rowan Harbor Cycle, and here’s her piece for Stag and the Ash, which is slated to be released on Thursday, June 28th:
Mr. Burns tells me that this one is his second favorite after the cover for Blackbird in the Reeds, which I think will always be my favorite, too. What do you think?
Anyway, here’s the (working) burb:
Jesse Hunter is finally trying to be an adult, but still feels like an act. His place on the town council is a sham. He’s rarely called on to do anything. His boyfriend is grieving the loss of his mother, and while everyone seems to think he’s doing a great job caring for Sean, Jesse feels like he’s more of a distraction than a real help.
March is shaping up to be a bad month. First, random chance leads him to the realization that the town’s recent trouble is his fault. Then new werewolves come into town, and it turns out they’re also Jesse’s responsibility. He feels like he may be at his breaking point, and he doesn’t want to drag his friends and loved ones down with him. But how will he handle it alone?
So many books, so little time.
As of Tuesday, Blackbird in the Reeds is available on Audible, and I have to say I’m incredibly excited about it. Chris Chambers has done an amazing job bringing the book to life, and I cannot wait to hear what he does with the next book in the series!
(for anyone who gets this far, I know I’ve been thoroughly remiss in updating recently, and I’m trying to do better. Thanks for sticking with me.)
My books are water; those of the great geniuses is wine. Everybody drinks water.
The reason that fiction is more interesting than any other form of literature, to those who really like to study people, is that in fiction the author can really tell the truth without humiliating himself.
Hey guys! Excited to share with you the cover for Wolf and the Holly, which will be coming out on February 8th. It’s been up on goodreads for a couple of days now, but I’m late putting it here because I’m still trying to fight off last month’s cold and seem to be moving in slow motion.
Five years ago, Jesse dropped out of college and came home to Rowan Harbor to find safety with his pack. A broken man, he’s been living as though the world is ending—allergic to responsibility and spending most of his nights at the local bar.
But he can’t avoid growing up forever. On the night of his thirtieth birthday party, he finds his childhood friend Isla unconscious, attacked in the middle of their peaceful hometown. The wolf inside him wants to protect its people from the slick-haired, smooth-talking vampire who’s brought trouble to town, and Jesse can’t run from his instincts any longer.
Now that his inner wolf is out of its cage, it’s picked the most inconvenient moment to find its mate. Sean Anderson—recently back from college and much changed from the skinny preteen Jesse once knew—is just what he never knew he needed.
