    It's HERE!!! :-D

    Alright...deep breaths...TODAY'S THE DAY!! STORM FALL is out in the world!! (If you read it on NetGalley, I would be HUGELY grateful if you'd post your review on Amazon. Big hugs!)

     

    Below you'll find today's teaser, and another link to the giveaway. And, of course, a link to STORM FALL!

    Happy birthday my little book baby. You know what they say about how writing sequels is super hard and will tear out bits of your soul? ...Totally true. This book was probably the hardest for me to write. And I did it in quite a short amount of time. But despite the late nights and angst, I'm SO happy with the way it turned out. I love Aris and Dysis and Galena, my trifecta of strong women. I love how they rise to their challenges in this book. I love that the story explores more of what's happening with Atalanta's enemy...what's going on within the Military's ranks...and how the story progresses the relationships between the different characters. More than anything, though, I can't wait to hear what all of you think! I hope you love it!

    T-Minus One Day!

    Happy Monday! 

    Who's ready to find out what Aris has been up to?? ;-)

    Here's today's teaser for STORM FALL (which releases TOMORROW)...as well as the giveaway! Enter below for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card, "gift set" of REBEL WING & STORM FALL ebooks, or a prize pack of Alloy Books!

    Also, today you can find me on the Reddit YA Writers subgroup for an "ask me anything"! Come ask me questions! :-)

     

    A quick reminder, here's the description for STORM FALL:

    In the action-packed sequel to Rebel Wing, Aris battles for life and love . . . and not everyone will survive. 

    Aris Haan gave up everything to join the Atalantan Military: her family, her boyfriend, even her identity. In the end, though, it didn’t matter that she was a war hero. When the all-male Military discovered that she was actually a woman, she was sent home and erased from history. 

    Now she has a chance to go back to the battlefield—as herself. But as hard as it was to be a soldier in disguise, it’s even more difficult now. The men in her unit undermine her at every turn. The Safaran army has spies everywhere, perhaps even on Aris’s stationpoint. And she’s falling for her mysterious superior officer, Milek. But their relationship is forbidden, just stolen moments between training sessions and missions. There’s no room for love in war. 

    Then Aris discovers that Safara’s leaders have set their sights on her, Atalanta’s hero. And she must find them before they find her . . .

    There's a Map!

    So, as a scifi/fantasy fan, I think this is SUPER cool....the talented team at Alloy made a MAP of Atalanta! Seriously, seeing a visual representation of my made-up world has got to be one of the neatest things to happen so far on my publishing journey. Makes it feel so REAL. I mean - look! There's a map! :-D

    I hope this will come in handy as you read Rebel Wing and Storm Fall! I believe the map will be included in Storm Fall when it releases, hopefully also in Rebel Wing as well, though I'm not 100% certain about that.

    At any rate, what do you think? Is it how you pictured Atalanta? I hope it helps you visualize Aris's world!

    Also, happy Friday!

    For those who read Shattered Veil...

    Hello lovely readers! I have a message for those of you who read Shattered Veil before its Rebel Wing update. In the revision process with Alloy, a few things changed. Most of it was a question of streamlining and tightening, but there were a couple changes that may make Storm Fall a little confusing to folks who read the original indie version. So, here are a couple things to look out for! Of course, I recommend checking out the fully edited and updated Rebel Wing, so you don't miss anything. But if you can't, here are just a couple things to keep in mind:

    1) If you read Shattered Veil, the first chapter of Storm Fall is going to feel eerily familiar. Rebel Wing ends a chapter earlier than Shattered Veil did!! Please note that while it may seem very similar, there ARE some differences to the old last chapter of Shattered Veil and first chapter of Storm Fall, so don't skip it assuming it's exactly the same. ;-)

    2) A few of the characters' names changed:

    ~ Orvin = Otto

    ~ Ilom = Elom

    ~ Aris's mom = Krissa

    ~ Tress = Theo

    If you have any questions, notice something you think should be added to this list, or are confused about anything, please leave a comment here or email me using the contact form on the right.

    Cheers! And for those of you requesting review copies on NetGalley (yup, Storm Fall is up on NetGalley!) I hope you enjoy it!
