July is going to be a busy month for my book releases! Like a lot of authors, writing is one of my jobs and the summer time is when I go balls-to-the-wall Hamilton-style “why do you write like you’re running out of time?”
So I’m really excited about these upcoming releases and wanted to share them.
While Beauty Sleeps is a reverse harem fairytale retelling of Sleeping Beauty that releases July 24th!
She shall prick her finger and fall to sleep…”
There once was a girl who was born to be cursed. By no fault of her own, she was doomed to remind her kingdom of everything ugly. No matter how many good deeds she did or how kind she was, it was her destiny to die, and take her kingdom with her. Her mother and father wept when they saw her, and the witch who cursed her celebrated gleefully as each year passed.
Except there was hope. Her sisters, older and wiser, and with no small amount of magic of their own, countered the witch’s curse. If Kumiko could be loved, truly loved, the curse would be broken, and everyone would see what the witch had hidden.
But all her life, Kumiko had been let down—by the parents who hid her away and by an ill-fated curse.
Until they arrived.
Four princes, full of smug confidence and pride, were determined to break the princess’s curse before her twenty-first birthday.
All they had to do was fall in love.
I’m also releasing this July, Revolution and Rising. This is the final book in my Wishes and Curses duet, and has two of my very favorite characters who’ve ever emerged, fully-formed, from my brain. Polya, a princess born with fangs and a tiger’s tail, and Anatoliy, a brave soldier whose misspent wish turned him into a bear.
With every wish comes a curse…
Polya survived the Hunt, but Anatoliy did not. Now the citizens of Konstantin are rising up, revolting against the king who tortured them and the royals who allowed it to happen.
Mourning Anatoliy, Polya struggles to continue to fight. With Anatoliy’s dying breath, she finally made her wish, and still, the bear breathed his last.
Except, the devil heard Polya, and granted her wish.
Anatoliy lives, not as a bear, but as the soldier he was before he was cursed. Now, he has one mission—find Polya.
As Polya makes her away across Konstantin, Anatoliy gives chase, determined to find her. Faced with the ruin King Aleksandr wrought, and the anger of the people, Anatoliy and Polya strive to find each other and survive.
But Polya’s wish had a consequence, and the devil is biding his time. Will Polya and Anatoliy be reunited? Or will the revolution rise up, and drag them all into hell?
And finally, I’m also releasing the third and final book of my reverse harem paranormal vampire romance, Diadem of Blood and Bones.
