I am kicking off the second half of August with a translation release & Kindle Vella launch!
That's right, not one, but two different books are available now on Amazon:
Welcome to The Vow That Twisted Fate Character Art Reveal: Elven King Theylin & Moon-Keeper Prince Seir.
These brothers-in-law could not be more opposite in character. King Theylin is stoic, skeptical, and likes to keep tight reigns on everything going on around him. Moon-Keeper Prince Seir is calm but internally passionate, very opinionated, and willing to let duty and destiny sweep his life where it will.

It's official! Last night, my debut Epic Fantasy novel The Vow That Twisted Fate hit Amazon bestseller lists in three different categories: New Adult Fantasy, Occult Horror, and Occult Fiction.
After a whirlwind weekend of support and sharing, The Vow That Twisted Fate's ebook continues to take off, and you guys are to thank for the amazing success!
100% of all my profits from TVTTF's sales on Sunday the 25th are being donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to support childhood cancer research.

I am utterly blown away and humbled as I write this, knowing that one of my books, my DEBUT epic fantasy novel, has placed as a Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist: The Vow That Twisted Fate!
When CK Sorens, author of Trimarked, finished reading The Vow That Twisted Fate and messaged me suggesting that I enter it in the NGIB awards, I was conflicted. To tell you the truth, I wasn't sure my debut epic fantasy novel would be "good enough", and after releasing two flop self-published YA books in college, I didn't think I could bear another scathing rejection.
I have tread the ground carefully with The Vow That Twisted Fate. Every review is beyond appreciated. Every download and pre-order means the world to me! And now...to have placed as one of five finalists among such amazing fellow indie authors, I am truly, deeply grateful to CK Sorens for the recommendation, to the awards judges for reading my work, and for my husband Jikyo and sister Fu, without whom I would not have found the courage to submit the book for consideration.
The Vow That Twisted Fate is available for pre-order on Amazon, Google Play, and Barnes & Noble already, and I have some advanced reader copies (signed paperbacks and hardbacks) on my website shop as well.
If you're interested in reading a Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist: The Vow That Twisted Fate is also available in an advanced digital copy to anyone who pre-orders and uploads their receipt HERE.

-Check out some the book's page HERE.
-Grab some delicious book-themed recipes HERE.
-Take a quiz to see which character you'd be in the book HERE.
-Follow the Next Generation Indie Book Awards Facebook page HERE for award ceremony information.
I got some super-exciting news today! The Vow That Twisted Fate is now IndieReader Approved!
When I saw the e-mail about the perfect five-star review, I was absolutely astounded. I had hyped myself up for a 3 (IndieReader labels a 3 as "Worth Reading"), since this is my debut Adult Fantasy novel and my comback from two flops I wrote back in college.
But no, it's real! And you can see the whole five-star review right HERE. My mind is spinning knowing that The Vow That Twisted Fate is now IndieReader Approved...I hope this is the seal that official signs off on the fact that every author can make a come-back! If I can do it, so can you!
