The pre-order was announced today, so it’s official!
I am so excited that the adventures of Blue Caracal and her crew are now available for everyone to enjoy. It was such a trip to write! [and revisit, and rewrite.] I even got back into 90s music while working on it–that’s how hard the nostalgia hit me!
If you want to pre-order it, click this link. If you want to wait for the dead tree version, it’s due to release shortly after the e-book releases on June 4th.
Speaking of dead trees, the paperback versions of the first three Atlantis: TVC books were announced today as well! I have a copy of each volume in my hands–and guys–it feels so amazing. I mean, digital copies were great but these just have so much weight. They came out fantastic.
Now that the release is over, I can get back to working on volume 2 of Feline Warriors. However, I won’t lie–I am probably gonna take a vacation first. [Because I have so much laundry to do! Seriously, life is just laundry over and over until you die or it dies.]
If you don’t hear from me, assume the laundry won.
To say thank you to my readers, all my available works are free over the Thanksgiving holiday. That’s right–free! If you’ve been waiting to pick up volume #2 of the Atlantis: TVC series, or to try one of my other stories, now is the time! Want something to curl up with while you snack on leftovers? This deal is for you!

I’m excited to announce that my newest work is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com!
It’s a dark story, but one of my personal favorites. I’ve had it in my head in various incarnations since probably around 2002 or so. I am glad I waited and let it percolate, because I don’t think I could have done it justice until now.
Simple Words debuts on June 17th, 2016. Pick up a copy today!

One of the awesome parts of self-publishing is the ability to manage everything yourself. One of the horrible parts of it is the ability to manage everything yourself. So, you have to own any awful decisions you make.
The original cover of Atlantis: TVC volume #1 was a debacle. I originally made my artwork too small, and since it wasn’t vector it didn’t scale up well. I was in love with the concept of past and future Achine standing back to back and I didn’t want to let it go–nor did I want to start over from scratch. I compromised by scaling up the colors, and re-traced the lineart to be larger in Illustrator. The end result was what I launched the book with. It looked okay from far away, but close up… it was a mess.
When it came time to make the cover for the second volume, I tried to use the same template and the graphic designer part of me revolted. She threw up, then proceeded to mentally beat me until I learned what I had done wrong. I did learn, and I set out to redesign the cover template from the ground up. Once I finished my shiny new template I was forced to admit that the old concept for the first volume not only looked awful, but it was probably hurting sales, and needed to be changed.
Yesterday I rolled out the new cover in anticipation of the release of Atlantis: TVC volume #2 later this month. I have to say, I am really liking both the new template and the new image for the cover. It is leaps and bounds better than the old cover, and will hopefully give a boost to sales since volume two is coming out in a few weeks.
Speaking of which, here is the new volume #1 cover side-by-side with the cover for volume #2. Sneak peek!
If you missed it the first time around, volume #1 is available to read for free if you have a Kindle Unlimited or Amazon Prime account. If you don’t have either of those, it will be free for everyone for a limited time this weekend! [November 7th – 8th, 2015] You can find it here.
