Happy Sunday! Can you start to feel that crisp autumn breeze in the air?
Whether you’ve spent your morning lazily sleeping in or getting your chores done, one thing you need to do today is get your copy of We Who Burn, which is out right this very minute!
Petra Freyrsdótter can raise an entire village from the dead with her magic—so why can’t she bring her lover back to life?
Petra has spent the last two years trying to resurrect Orrus, the man she loves. And even though she’s a powerful necromancer, nothing works, and Orrus is perpetually stuck as a listless shade at her side while she searches all of Aelamor for a way to restore him.
But when Petra gets caught by a priest for the God of Truth and Light—an order that burns necromancers at the stake—instead of killing her, he presents her with a strange gambit: If she can retrieve a blade that was stolen from his order, the priest will not only let her live, but will also reveal what he knows about how she can fully resurrect Orrus.
Although making a deal with a burned brother isn’t a good idea, Petra is desperate and out of options. Apart from saving her own life, she must do what she can to fulfill her promise to Orrus so they can be reunited in the world of the living.
When Petra finally tracks down Caspar, the thief who stole the blade, she can’t help but feel attracted to and intrigued by the handsome stranger whose hatred for the order is as strong as her own.
Everything falls apart, however, when Petra and her companions are captured by the mad priests who serve the God of Truth and Light and they discover the secret of the blade and the vile ritual the order intends to use it for.
Now, Petra and Caspar must work together to keep the blade out of the priests’ clutches and bring the entire order to its knees before it’s too late. And she must be willing to risk everything—including her chance to be with Orrus again—if she wants to make sure the horrible future the order has planned can never come to light.

I hope everyone’s been doing well given the circumstances.
Last month in July, it was my distinct pleasure to have my short story, “Precipitation” published in The Sirens Call 50th issue! If you’d like to read it, along with many other wonderful short stories, you can download a free copy here.
In other news, my urban fantasy novel, The Witch & the Wolfwood is going to be getting a cover soon, and I am beyond excited! This will be my first book with publisher Filles Vertes (FVP), and I’m looking forward to doing a cover reveal soon. This title, featuring smart-aleck private eye Helena Birch, will be available in April 2021, hopefully in time for an in-person return to JordanCon here in Atlanta.
Last year I had an idea for a story pop into my head, and it was so in depth that I plotted the book in about an hour and wrote it in a month and a half. Now, that very same book is coming out in just a few days!
We Who Burn is a dark/paranormal fantasy novel about a necromancer trying to resurrect her lost love while being hunted by a witch-burning order with a world-destroying scheme in their sights. If you’re a fan of sword and sorcery, a kick-ass female protagonist, and a little bit of romance, then pre-order a copy of We Who Burn now! (You don’t even have to wait that long!)
Until next time, stay safe!
*Waves happily to all of the other writers and readers on Wattpad Island as her boat scoots into dock*
So in case you’re wondering what that means, it’s pretty simple. I finally joined Wattpad!
I know it’s been around a while, but I’m an elder millennial, so I’m at that weird stage where I can look down my nose at older people about their lack of computer savoir faire while still having to google all the newfangled things these kids are doing nowadays on the interwebs so I feel less obsolete.
In case you’re unaware of what Wattpad is, it well… *hastily opens Wiki, scrolls, and minimizes page* is a place where you can read a bunch of cool new content from writers all over the world. For completely free!
If you’re already a member of Wattpad, then please feel free to follow me so I can follow you back and check out some of your work, too. You can also read the first two chapters of my YA sci-fi novel, Star Struck, that I’m updating weekly. I’ll be posting more content on there as well, so if light sci-fi isn’t your thang, that’s cool; just stick around.
Start reading Star Struck here.
