Blood Queen is on the horizon!
I’d like to apologize to everyone who has been waiting
impatiently patiently for the next book. Previously, I had planned on it being released already. However, being a new mom has delayed things more than I had anticipated. You go into it thinking, babies sleep a lot so I should have plenty of time to get things all together. Then you have a baby and realize that it’s not one lump sum of sleep, you’re on constant duty because their sleep patterns are all over the place, and they need to feed constantly. Who knew? Every parent ever, but they don’t warn you… oh no, they don’t warn you about this, because then the human race would go extinct, and there is a sick twisted part in every person that wishes the same fate on others because they too had to go through that fate.
Fast forward a few months and mom life is actually pretty great, even with the lack of sleep, but now I’m getting a rhythm down, and can squeeze in my writing time, editing time, and of course UPDATE time to chat with you all.

Now, on to the sneak peek of BLOOD QUEEN.
Brandy saw a vision of my death, I know she did. It’s why she pushed me away and treated me like an insect, didn’t want me to get close to her. Didn’t want to see me die. Or didn’t want to care when it happened. We were separated now, I knew that much, but if her diviner magic was right then I would be seeing her again soon enough. Though now I debated whether I wanted to face what horrors she saw in her visions.(more…)

Birth of an Author: mini-narrative
Always fascinated with saving people, ever since she was a young parasite, no taller than the desk she toils away at now. This obsession started with saving the streets from litter bugs, and forcing her mother to head out with large trash bags and gloves scouring the roads, saving them from gross dirty things like used cans and food wrappers. Then progressing into wearing real over-sized nurse scrubs as a Halloween costume, hoping one day to save people as a doctor she soon realized that poking people with scalpels and needles felt like torture to help them, it’s a dirty job and someone had to do it, but that someone wasn’t going to be her.
So all her saving happened in her dreams, in her head, on paper, and in her stories. So, she created her alter ego, a writer who used powerful, yet vulnerable, anti-heroes to save the world one person, one world, at a time. And what is a saving-the-world adventure without romance? Only half the story, if you ask her. The stories started out half of what they should be… short, scared, young, covered in dust, and locked away in an evil tower to save the world from their premature nature. Yet, like Rapunzel, they decided to escape using their own hair, just one yanked page at a time. Until with nurture and time, Stevie Marie decided they were ready to see the world.
