Greetings Booklovers!

A very special welcome to my new subscribers.  I'm so happy to have you!

I am happy to say I am a winner of the NaNoWriMo book challenge for the month of November.  I am still in the thick of finishing the manuscript, but it has been different for me to switch from writing fantasy to contemporary romance. I still have fun in my creative moments and writing about the lives of military personnel and the horrors of human trafficking is a passion I have recently found myself delving into. 

I have spent many hours researching U.S. military, the country of Mexico (where this story takes place), and human trafficking.  There is a ton more for me to research and I plan on continuing to write about the topic of human trafficking throughout the series.  Last, but not least, is another topic I plan on touching upon called PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and its effects on the lives of my characters.  Both topics I plan to weave into this book series and I have found that there is much to be said about the victims, their families, their friends, and the people who help all victims learn to live life after having experienced such nightmares.

This first book is called Blood Oath: An Eagle Operatives Novel.  I will have more information on that by next month.  I do have a sneak peek of the book cover, but reserve the right to make changes as this is not the final version.  I call it an early Christmas present...

 

May you have a Merry Christmas and a Beautiful Hanukkah from my house to yours.

Titan Publishing House
Signing Book Two, Katerina's Hope, with Titan InKorp was the best decision I made this year.  I have been afforded the benefits of working with a fantastic team of literary professionals which have given me the freedom of stress during the publication process.  Also, using their Platinum Distribution services I have the opportunity to have my books uploaded onto a much larger worldwide distribution platform than I could have dreamed of doing on my own.

My book is avaialable in both online and retail bookstores such as:
Amazon
Barnes and Noble
Book Depository Ltd.
Cokesberry.com
eBook Mall
Eden Interactive Ltd.
Gale
Hastings
Integra
Kobo
Mallory International
Premier Digital Publishing
Smashwords
Superbook Deals
iBooks
Google Play
Google Books
...and many more. 

Choosing to work with a publishing house for the publication and distribution process has been a huge stress relief, however the marketing is still 95% all me.  In many ways I am still the indie author struting about in my community selling my book.  I will keep you up todate with local and national appearances in my newsletter, on my web page and social media outlets.

Take care and until next time...
