Happy Monday, lovely readers! I'm popping out of the revision cave for a moment to chat. The sequel to Rebel Wing is coming along nicely and I am hoping to soon have a title and cover to reveal! (I know the title. It's awesome. Yay! Sorry I can't share yet.) And mark your calendars, because the book itself will be arriving on Kindles everywhere in December (exact date to come very shortly!). I know those of you who read the original "Shattered Veil" version have been waiting a long time, and I'm very sorry for that. But I sincerely hope it'll be worth the wait...and I think I can say with full confidence that having the folks at Alloy helping me will only make it a much MUCH better book. In the meantime, if you haven't already, I recommend checking out the new version...a few of the minor characters' names changed and the ending's a bit different, which might make things a little confusing going into book 2.
Also, I'm super excited because By Blood is now available as an audiobook on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes! The fabulous Becca Ballenger brought Emma to life - as well as Josh, Ash, and Simon. She did a FABULOUS job with all the British dialects...if you've read the book, you know how much of a challenge that would be! I'm thrilled with how it turned out and hope you'll take a listen. You can get it FREE if you sign up for Audible, and if you already own the ebook, the audiobook is only $1.99 on Amazon. Which is CRAZY CHEAP! :-)
For those of you who may not be familiar with By Blood, here's a quick description:
For 17-year-old Emma Wong, spending a summer in England should be a dream come true. Gorgeous scenery? Check. Lots of hot guys with accents? Yes, please.
Spending two months with her mom, Dr. Mike (don’t call him her stepdad), and their pooping, puking infant son? Not what she had in mind. It’s a disaster even her favorite cherry red leather jacket can’t fix (leather and spit-up so do not mix).
Not only does she get put on diaper duty (gag), but there’s also Dr. Mike’s cute research assistant to contend with. The only thing more embarrassing than her trying to plant one on him hours after they meet? Knowing he’ll be a witness to her family’s dysfunction all. summer. long.
So when Emma meets a mysterious girl who happens to be a Druid, the summer suddenly promises to be far more intriguing than she expected. Powerful rituals, new friends, an intoxicating sense of freedom...and Simon, the sexy foreign stranger she was hoping for. It’s all a perfect distraction from dirty diapers and awkward family dinners.
Trouble is, intriguing doesn’t often mean simple. And Emma is about to discover just how not simple her life really is.

Cheers for now! Hoping I'll have some exciting Rebel Wing sequel stuff to share soon!
