Author's Note: Honoring a Witch's Heart, a historical fantasy about fae descendants, started it's life as Honor Before Heart, a historical romance with no magic or fantasy elements in it. When the idea for the novel hit me, my literary agent at the time convinced me to write it as a historical romance instead of a historical fantasy because they said a historical fantasy was too much of a genre mashup, and there was no market for it because publisher's wouldn't know how to place it and sell it. So, though it broke my heart, I wrote it as a historical romance. Now, years later,

Proving the Traditional Publishing Industry Wrong

I hope you'll help me in proving the traditional publishing industry wrong. Coming, this March, the book that Honor Before Heart, my historical romance was always meant to be, Honoring a Witch's Heart, now a historical fantasy about fae descendants living in America during the Civil War. And here is the cover reveal: When I had the original idea for this novel, I talked to my agent about it. They said it sounded like it would be a tough sell due to the dual genres of fantasy and historical. It would be too hard to sell to a publisher, they said. They convinced me to write it is as just a historical romance instead, removing all fantasy elements from it. Though it broke my heart, I did it. And they were able to sign it to a publisher. Unfortunately, the series sold poorly. I hold no ill will toward my agent, they advised me in the way they thought was best, and they had good intentions.  After several years, I finally got my right back and I have rewritten it to the way I always

The cover for the next novel in my Shifter Seeker series, Tiger Tracking, is here! Here is a bit about it: Releasing May of 2023. The children of Fenrir aren't the only shifters rising. Despite being a newly bitten werewolf, as the seeker of shifterkind, Sonya thought for a hot minute she'd come close to seeing it all. Until she came across Jin, a tiger shifter on the run from a gang of grizzly shifters. Taking him in will mean bringing a lot of heat onto her friends, but she can't turn away a supernatural in need of help.  Mixing canines and felines proves challenging when he meets her group of misfits--werewolves and coyote shifters--not to mention her boyfriend. And then there's the problem of her reaper best friend... But all those issues fall to the side as the Grizzly Gang descends on her found family in search of not just a rare tiger shifter, but this one in particular.

Missing Indigenous Women

One of the main plot threads in Coyote Calling deals with the disappearance of Indigenous (Native American) women, Diné (Navajo) in particular. And while this is a work of fiction about supernatural people, it is unfortunately based in truth when it comes to the devastating issue of the disappearance of Indigenous women. If you aren’t Indigenous, you probably haven’t heard of this issue before, most haven’t. But we all need to hear it, we need to listen, and we need to act. Here are a few places you can learn more: Indian Affairs – U.S. Department of the Interior Native Hope Native Women’s Wilderness KTIV.Com – Siouxland’s News Channel

A bit about it: Sleighbells are ringing and the snow is falling in Hemlock Hollow, Montana, but Sonya Michaelson is off saving newly bitten werewolves from losing their minds during their first change.  That is until she has to prepare the house for the visit of the werewolf parents of her hot professor boyfriend.
