From the Ashes Book 2 is out!

Another book is out!

This is one where I feel the need to say...

The content advisory is on the book page. hehe


You’ll know EXACTLY what you can expect from this book, I feel, in the first line. There’s not many (if any other) of my books I can say that about!

All that being said...

I’m extremely excited to share this one with everybody. Scared in some ways, of course, because it’s not just rough around edges but the entirety of itself. But excited.

As much as I love writing (and reading) fantasy, I’m really excited about releasing another non-fantasy book. I feel it just gives better way for certain things (though of course the same goes in reverse).

If you’re looking for a gritty, post-apocalyptic story with a main character who’s Southern as all get-out...

What Once Was might be the book you didn’t know you needed! 

(Also, the cover is one of my favorites that I’ve ever made!)

I’d had plans to be releasing from two different series soon, but that intention changed. I’m going to be working on getting the remainder of this series out as soon as possible. (As long as nothing weird comes up.) It shouldn’t take long. I don’t want to give the timeframe I’m shooting for, but it’s soon! Be on the lookout for the next 3 books! And know I’m working hard here.

My ‘Review’ for What Once Was

I update the 'Home' page with information regularly (rather than posting on social media). Be sure to check in if you're interested in what's going on with me/the books!

Updated 09/22/2023

Can Never Be Again (Book 2 in From the Ashes) is available now! All the links are up and available on the From the Ashes series page. If you've been able to read What Once Was already, I hope you've been looking forward to this one! 

3 is coming VERY soon, unless something unforeseen happens. Check back in a few days, if you're interested!

4 will take a little longer than a few days! ha I didn't manage to get it formatted in the space before 2 (and now 3) arrived (or will arrive). It still will also be coming soon, though!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Updated 09/17/2023

In some ways, I don't have much to update. I'm still working hard on getting the From the Ashes series ready. I've done the last (pre-formatting) readthrough of the entire series and have most of the print edition of Book 2 ready. I still need to put finishing touches on the (front) cover/get it right and also get the back and spine done before sending off for the proof. I'm not sure if anyone cares about all this! ha! I guess I could've just said the second book will be coming soon (but not within the next day or so)! I'll be working on the ebook and then the print edition of Book 3 while waiting for 2 to get here. Then I'll read through the print, make sure everything is good to go, and it'll be put out there! 

I'm really hoping that the plan for this going smoothly works out. If there's one thing I've learned about planning, it's that my plan gets overridden for a better one sometimes. haha
We'll call this the working plan. And the working plan (which is pretty set in my mind and seems like it could, in theory, go smoothly) would have the next three books getting out pretty fast from this point. We'll see!

I'll be working hard here!

I hope September is going great for everyone! I'm enjoying the cooler weather here on my breaks. I hope everyone else is too. ^.^

(I do also have several blog/post ideas in mind and some 'partially written' inside my head, but that's all on the backburner while I'm working. At least for now. Getting the books out is the priority for me. I hope everyone would rather read that/those! But the ideas for the posts are pretty cool ones. At least I think so!)

Reave is free today! If you've thought about reading one of my books and haven't yet, now is a good time to check that out!

I'm still hard at work here on getting the rest of the From the Ashes series ready to go!

Updated: 09/02/2023

As promised, the surprise mentioned is up there! (The release of What Once Was.) As I said above, I'm going to be working hard on getting the rest of the series out as quickly as possible. It's already written (and has been for years), and all I need to do is get them ready to go, which doesn't necessarily take LONG but takes time. I'll be working hard on that, as long as nothing weird happens!

I really hope everybody who reads What Once Was enjoys it!

My 'Review' for What Once Was

These characters are deep, damaged, flawed, strong but weakened, hard/hardened, and in a great deal of pain.

My 'Review' for Lameria's Gift

This series as a whole taught me so much about the significance of seemingly insignificant things. ‘You make this tiny decision, and your entire life can change.’ That very thought has thrown me down hole after hole with these books! And every hole I fall into with it/them teaches me more, in a sense not just about the book(s) but about all the things we miss in life—some good, some bad.
