Interview with Jess Carpenter

Fellow indie author Jess Carpenter was kind of enough to sit down with me (virtually) and do a written interview. I enjoyed it.

Go check it out!

Maeva Dedication

I dedicate each of my books to an individual. Sometimes I know from the start who will be named, and other times I don’t know until the day before publishing. I had dedicated Olivia but had not set one for Maeva. As I sit here in relative comfort during these trying times, it only makes sense to name those who are doing so much for us at great personal risk.

Dedicated to all the healthcare workers
first responders, and the people who keep us fed, clothed,
and fully stocked with essentials during these trying times.

Olivia and Maeva Cover Reveals

It’s been a hectic couple of days, but the launch of Olivia and Maeva is still set for April 5th. Lots of preparations are taking place behind the scenes, but I wanted to share a sneak peak of both covers.

I’m grateful to have the help of Amber Stricklin, an amazing graphic artist, to help bring these covers to life.

Stay tuned for more updates, stay safe, and stay home.

Final Two Novels of Sign of Alchemy Series Launching April 5th

After over a year of blood, sweat, and proverbial tears, the final two novels of the Sign of Alchemy series will be launching on April 5th, 2020. For all you binge readers out there, you’ll be able to dive into two full-length novels spanning a total of almost 700 pages.

The first novel, Olivia, will follow the events immediately after the conclusion of Niv’leana. The second title, pending final name, will conclude the series.

I just wrote The End to the last book yesterday, and it was a bittersweet moment. I’m excited to release the conclusion of this epic saga, but also sad to see it come to an end.

I’ll be revealing the title and cover of the final book by the end of the month, and announcing Goodreads drawings for your chance to win a free copy!

Until then, stay safe, stay healthy, and don’t forget to sprinkle in a bit of magic in your everyday life whenever you can.

Olivia Cover Preview

I apologize for my prolonged absence from my blog. It’s been for good reason, I assure you. I’ve been hard at work writing the last two books in the Sign of Alchemy Series – Olivia and Frasie. Olivia is done, just needs a blurb for the back cover. I’m currently writing Frasie and expect to have it finished and edited by Thanksgiving.

In the meantime, I’d like to share a preview of the cover. I’m so pleased with it, and hope you will be too.

Look forward to more frequent posting here in the Jeweled Woods, and two new books to release just in time for the holiday season!

It’s Impossible to Hoard Books

I’m sure you’ve seen the shows where they go into the homes of hoarders and unearth mountains of stuff (OK, usually trash). When I saw this meme I was puzzled by the fact that no one ever gets blamed for having too many books.

In fact, we encourage this by having furniture dedicated to the purpose of holding vast quantities of books. Larger homes have an entire room set aside for the collection and reading of books.

Kindles might help reclaim some space that avid readers gleefully surrender to their ever-growing libraries, but nothing can replace the feel, look, and even smell of a real book.

Start hoarding books today!
