Happy Friday, you darkness lovers!
Yes, normally, I would've sent this newsletter out yesterday. I was a bit busy with meeting various deadlines for *ahem* various projects. AND I was waiting for a super fun thing to go live so I could share it with you! But first...
There are only THREE DAYS LEFT to nominate Daughter of the Drackan for the 2019 Epic Fantasy Fanatics Readers Choice Awards (the EFFys!). We are so close to reaching the required 100 votes to get this book into the next round. Thank you so much to everyone who's already sent in their votes. And now I'm calling on you again, if you haven't voted, to please help this Amazon Dark Fantasy Bestseller reach the 100-vote goal so this year's judges get the chance to join the adventure.
I'm still running a contest for a $25 Amazon Gift Card, and if you send me a screenshot of your vote (just
apply to this email and attach it), you're entered to win. I'm announcing the winner on Monday, July 15th, which is also when the voting period for the 2019 EFFYs ends. So please, for the love of all that is dark and brutal and deliciously unapologetic, send in your votes here.
Readers call it: "...brutal, engaging, sexy, dark, bloody, mysterious..." "a well-written, robust fantasy adventure..." "...ruthless..." and "unlike anything you have ever experienced before." Strong female lead with a take-no-prisoners attitude. "The Jungle Book meets Kill Bill... with dragons!"
(I also discovered you can vote twice if you really, really love this book, which I know some of you do...)
some bigger announcement news!
Playing with Fire, the Forbidden Love boxed set through Fire Quill Publishing (where you will find the prequel to my Vessel Broken series, The Summoner Thief) is now live for pre-order on Amazon! I know some of you have already
pre-ordered this set from other distributors, and for this, all of us in Playing with Fire thank you. I also know most of you have been waiting for this baby to be up for grabs on Amazon (the monster that only gives us three months for pre-orders...). Well now it's here!
Why pre-order Playing with Fire before it's live? The main reason is that every pre-order receives a FREE GIFT with purchase. Honestly, it's more like a virtual gift basket. This includes an exclusive boxed set of free reads written
by yours truly and the eleven other USA Today and International Bestselling Authors in Playing with Fire.
14 Paranormal Romance, Romance, and Dark Fantasy reads. You'll also receive a phenomenal coloring book put together by the brilliant minds at Fire Quill Publishing: dozens of pages
with gorgeous designs and plenty of room for you to explore the moods, themes, and even a few direct lines from the books coming out in this boxed set. 12 brand-new, never-before-seen stories in Playing with Fire, plus 14 free reads all put together for you in one place, plus a Forbidden-Love-themed coloring book... FOR $0.99??
The second (and clearly more selfish, for me) reason to pre-order Playing with Fire now is that we are trying to hit the USA Today Bestsellers List with this boxed set. What determines whether or not a new release hits that list? The number of sales made during that release's launch week. And all pre-order sales are added to that number. So not only does $0.99 get you 26 fun, sexy, adventurous, dark (yes, that's
mine) reads and a coloring book, but you'll also be boosting 12 authors' careers by helping them hit the USA Today Bestsellers List. And we can't do it without you.
If you haven't clicked the links already, I'm sticking it in here again. Pre-order your copy of the Playing with Fire boxed set on Amazon, which will be on your reading device on October 8th. To claim your free gifts, all you have to do is take a screenshot of your purchase order and reply to this email with the screenshot attached! Very easy, super fast, and everybody gets something amazing!
And of course, if you're interested in seeing more about what my book in the Playing with Fire boxed set is about (and the entire Vessel Broken series being written as you read this), well, this image pretty much sums it up. >> And thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered and will pre-order your copy of this set. We are all so pumped about the support and the excitement this set has already received!
When a convicted thief is sold into the service of the forgotten Priests of Imlach, she was only meant to submit to her mistress' demands. No one expected her to find the one thing worth biding her time to steal.
The greatest power is the one nobody ever sees...

They say the pen is mightier than the sword. In Sleepwater's world, words are literally more powerful than bullets.
Leo could always make people believe anything she says—really believe. When her chest burns and the words come from her mouth, her targets’ eyes glaze over, they forget their own thoughts, and they’ll do anything she says. It’s what keeps her alive after being on the run and living on the streets for years. But after using it on her girlfriend and her dad’s drug dealer, it’s also what got her here on the streets in the first place.
Then Sleepwater finds her. When Leo discovers there are others out there with similar powers, scattered across the country, she can’t say no to the underground organization. After all, what’s a little sit-down with the only people who may ever understand her? What she doesn’t expect is to be thrust into Sleepwater’s guerrilla war, hunted by government agencies, and used as a weapon. Worse than that, she might be more valuable not for what she can do but for who she was before they found her.
