The winning name will be drawn at random on March 25th, 2022.
The name will be revealed only in my upcoming novella, Angel's Abdication (pre-order before its April 9th release HERE), and in an announcement to my newsletter subscribers (sign up HERE).
**Entries are now CLOSED. The winning name will be e-mailed to my e-mail list and written in Angel's Abdication.**
*All eligible names will be placed into a randomizer and a winner chosen at random on March 25th 2022. I do not discriminate based on age, race, religion, or gender orientation; all names are welcome (spam "names" - such as profanity submitted in the name box - and trademarked names will be the only ones ineligible for consideration).
No purchase is necessary to enter or win. Pre-ordering a copy of Angel's Abdication will not increase your odds of being selected in any way.
Non-English names must be written in the English alphabet, as KDP does not support printing in all symbols at this time.
The selected name will be use fictionally, in a work of fiction, and as that character's thoughts/actions are solely based on my imagination, no royalties or rights may be assigned by the person nominating the character name. Any resemblance to the actual character is entirely coincidental.
Angel Princesses are not supposed to be forced into marriages with Devils.
Especially not the Crown Princess of The Heavens to The Devil Himself...
When Seracuse, the Angel crown princess, discovers her hand has been pledged to Lucef, the Devil himself, she must fall from The Heavens to avoid a life at his mercy.
Abdicating the Angel throne is not an easy feat, though--not with the forces of both The Heavens and The Lower World on her trail.
Stumbling into The Human World, the wounded fallen Angel is rescued from would-be poachers by a charming, enigmatic Demon who takes her in and nurses her back to health.
The spark between them is undeniable and instant--and the bond she finds herself forging with her rescuer is the strongest and purest one she's had with another person in centuries.
If only he wasn't the Demon King, Draco.
And the Devil's brother.

This blog post is something different from my normal news. Today I want to share how you can help Bekah Berge write without pain again.
As a thank-you for stepping up in support, I will also be giving out some FREE books to those who donate before 11:59pm CST on March 21st 2022.
Bekah is a pillar of the Indie Author Community.
Despite a painful battle with CRPS, she remains encouraging to others, selflessly uplifting, and a warrior.
Her battle has been an inspiration, and today she is working through treatment at the Spero Clinic in order to regain a life with less pain.
One of the big goals of her treatment is regaining the ability to write without pain. Bekah supports others' written worlds, and it's our turn to support hers.
With that being said, I am offering THREE free book offers to anyone who donates to Bekah's GoFundMe HERE:
-Donate $5 US to Bekah's GoFundMe for a free Amazon US e-book copy of both Down Falls The Queen AND Down Falls The King; my duology about Tengu Warrior Princess Rei.
-Donate $10 US to Bekah's GoFundMe for a free Amazon US e-book copy of The Vow That Twisted Fate, my Amazon bestselling novel
-Donate $20 US to Bekah's GoFundMe for a free Amazon US e-book copy of both Angel's Abdication AND Angel's Ascendance, my dark fantasy romance duology about Demon King Draco and Angel Princess Seracuse, on release day (April 9th and August 9th 2022).
**This giveaway has now closed. Thank you for your support!**

Now that my second year as an indie author is officially rolling, a new chapter in my writing journey is here.
When I began this journey in October 2020, my mentorship with Lindsey Teske from Of Ink and Pearls Publishing set me on my path and gave me the tools to make it where I am today. To say Lindsey's advice was invaluable is a gross understatement. I truly believe that without her foundations, I would not have had the success I did as a debut Epic Fantasy author.
Once The Vow That Twisted Fate launched, though, and Lindsey and I parted ways, I found myself riding the waves that are the highs of a book release and the lows of imposter syndrome.
Self-publishing isn't necessarily easy.
Who am I kidding? It's downright challenging.
But it's the most rewarding thing I've ever done as an author.
With that being said, after 7 months of trying to find my place in the indie author scene, of writing multiple novellas and participating in interviews, live chats, and more, I am ready to move into a new chapter in my writing journey.
I have signed an Elite Mentorship contract with Dragon Realm Press!
One of the most important lessons I've learned as an indie author has been to be humble and teachable. There are always new things to learn, always ways to improve, and being open and eager to learn from those who have achieved what I myself wish to achieve is the key to growth.
How does this affect my book/publishing schedule?
For already-scheduled books, it doesn't affect the schedule.
-The Slayer Queen is still in the works to be included in an anthology this summer
-Angel's Abdication (April 9th) and Angel's Ascendance (August 9th) are both still on schedule for release as planned
-Splitting Dawn is still a part of the Realm of Darkness box set, which comes out in October
What this new chapter does mean, though, is that I will be learning how to better share my work with the world, and how to make the most of the non-writing time I have. I am ready to be more intentional with my time, and move beyond 'coasting'.
I am excited for this new step into potentially becoming a full-time author in the future! My hope is that this means I will have more books for you without the long waits, and that those books will find homes on new shelves, too.
Thank you for joining me on my writing journey!
