Happy Release Day to The Fury of Kanta

The fourth book in The Wolves of Kanta series is now available!

This book was difficult to write on so many levels. Not only does Mercy find herself in a very bad situation dealing with someone who is extremely dangerous, but she must also avoid werewolves as well. She finds herself in a familiar location which breaks her heart again and again. This turned into an intimate character exploration, which is both a detour from the other books in this series but also makes perfect sense when you see the path this story has taken.

One of the things I’ve enjoyed the most in writing this series has been exploring Mercy’s character. There is a clear difference between where she started in The She-Wolf of Kanta and this newest addition. She grows so much even in this one book. But she also has to go through so much to get there.

I hope you enjoy this latest book, and look forward to the final book releasing in April!

The Fury of Kanta

Captured!

It didn’t matter that Mercy found a cure for lycanthropy or fended off bloodthirsty werewolves in Crowsmirth. Oscar the hunter still found her. Finding herself in a place she never wanted to return to again, her captor insists she play a twisted game.

Oscar wants to be the father she never had, and Mercy his doting daughter. Refusal is not an option. Plotting to escape while playing along is dangerous, but Mercy is determined to get home.

She must unravel the mystery of her parents’ past and conceal her growing fury if she hopes to see her friends again.

Happy Cover Reveal to The Fury of Kanta

Look at that gorgeous cover for the fourth book in The Wolves of Kanta series!

I’m absolutely in love with this amazing cover by Harvest Moon Designs! The colors just really make this piece stand out. I love the branches above Mercy’s head and how determined she looks. The trees in the background with the crows give it a mysterious vibe. The gun in Mercy’s hand really hints at the danger in this book too.

This entry in the Wolves of Kanta series has some major thriller vibes simply because she’s been captured. It’s something Mercy has evaded for years but eventually her luck runs out.

I’m so in love with how this series is going and I can’t wait to get this book out into the world. I’m working on finishing up edits and prepping for ARC readers now. This book hits bookshelves on December 20th!

Reviews for Writers: Beautiful Hardcover Notebooks

Welcome to the first post in my new series: Reviews for Writers! Throughout this series, I’ll be posting my reviews for materials aimed at writers, specifically those who write by hand.

There are a bunch of journals and pens and desk tools out there, and I want to give my thoughts on them specifically from an author’s perspective. I don’t see enough of that out there.


Labkiss Hardcover Notebook

My first thoughts on the Labkiss Hardcover Notebook are how nice they feel! These hardback journals are smooth and remind me of some of my favorite journals to use growing up. They have a sturdy bookmark in them and a binding elastic that feels pretty solid too.

Most important (to me) are the pen tests. For those of us who write by hand, the feathering, bleed through, and drying time are some of the most important aspects of a potential writing journal. Here are my takeaways:

  • Fountain pen ink went down wonderfully and has hardly any shadowing on the opposite page
  • Highlighters might bleed through if you double your lines
  • Sharpie markers will bleed through to the opposite side of the page, but not onto the opposite page, which is really great for a Sharpie

Night Feeders is Now Available as an AI Audiobook

For years I’ve struggled to produce audiobooks for many of my stories due to the high price point. Especially for my shorter works. This has been frustrating since I know I have readers who prefer some form of audiobook over ebooks. It’s always been an accessibility issue that’s bothered me. It can exclude readers with eyesight issues or those who are uncomfortable with ebooks.

I’m happy to share that with the power of Google AI, I finally have the chance to get many stories into audiobook format that never would have had the chance before such as Night Feeders.

I admit I listen to a lot of AI audio on YouTube. Spooky Reddit stories are some of my favorite late night content when I want entertaining background noise. I’ve gotten accustomed to AI voices reading stories. When I found out that this was an option and other authors were doing this too, I knew I had to join in.

I’m happy to share that I now have my first AI read audiobook up on YouTube with my short story, Night Feeders! It’s also available on Google Play for the same price as the ebook. I plan to have it on my Ko-Fi shop and possibly Kobo too.

Look for more AI audiobooks to be posted up on YouTube soon. Be sure to Like, Share, and Subscribe so you don’t miss them!
