I have some big writing decisions to make in the coming weeks.
A couple weeks ago, my newsletter subscribers got a sneak peek at a big project coming in 2023.
This project has huge implications for me as a writer, including:
-Branding decisions (what genres I have found myself in love with and wanting to write the most in over the coming year)
-Release schedule decisions
-Decisions about whether to self-publish or traditionally publish, primarily
-And decisions about how I am going to balance my life with my writing in general.
I plan to publicly announce more about my secret project in late October/early November 2022, but if you'd like to stay in-the-know early (and hear more writing news), come join my newsletter HERE. I'll send you a free book for signing up, and you'll be one of the first to know what big writing decisions I end up making.
Thank you all for being a part of my writing journey!
The last novella in the Splitting Worlds series is now available on Amazon!
Both Angel's Abdication (Volume 1) and Angel's Ascendance (Volume 2), in Demon King Draco and Angel Princess Seracuse's dark fantasy romance duology, can be read for free with Kindle Unlimited or purchased exclusively on Amazon for the next three months.
If you've already grabbed a copy and/or read either book, I cannot tell you how much an honest review would mean to me! You can review both books:
-On Amazon HERE
-On Bookbub HERE
-Or on Goodreads HERE
And if you're new to my Splitting Worlds series, this duology is a great place to start!
The entire timeline is pictured below (of books in chronological order), but you can also read about each duology HERE.
It feels so incredibly strange, walking away from the side novellas of this series and the worlds they each bring with them. At the same time, their stories have now been told. The world is set, and volume one of the series (the first full-length novel - Splitting Dawn) is set to make its appearance in the Realm of Darkness box set October 4th, 2022!
Thank you so much for helping me bring my Splitting Worlds series to life!
Here's to many new adventures!

Touma is not nobility, being raised a Human commoner and blacksmith's son, but the gods have a vital role for him to play in their prophecies.
As Kierra's best friend since childhood, Touma would do anything to take her away from the dark political world that shackles her to her duty as future queen.
César Pedronis is a tortured soul. Raised by the Elite in charge of the Fourth Allied Human Land, he was raised with a silver spoon in his mouth but iron through his heart.
The queen's decision to pledge Princess Kierra's hand to César gives the notorious Devil-Slayer a chance to take charge and fix the corruption wracking his world.
Vampire-Elf Prince Lunev is Kierra's chosen betrothed. He has guarded and sheltered her throughout her life, though that occasionally means erasing a memory or two.
Though Vampire-Elves rarely marry, she has captivated the prince so much that for her he will make an exception.
**Splitting Dawn, the first full-length Dark Fantasy Romance novel in my Splitting Worlds series, is coming exclusively in the Realm of Darkness box set in October 2022. You can grab a copy of the entire collection of 30+ Paranormal/Fantasy Romance novels for only 99 cents HERE.**
