Our world was perfect––until we broke the law: Don't go out at night.
Utopian by day, dystopian by night; this is the world I recently discovered. I now struggle with the fact that our whole society has been based on a lie. There's only one way to change it––conquer the darkness we've all been raised to fear.
Live the lie; fight to the death; become a Handler. It's the only way.
A sci-fi/dystopian novel.
As most of you know, I write Upper YA/New Adult Paranormal Romance, however... back in the beginning of my career, I got a wild hair to branch into the Adult realm with Aradia Awakens (Book one of my Ovialell series.) With that being said...it's a story I love, featuring witches, goddesses, werewolves, vampires and even more sexy supernaturals, and the explicit sex scenes were well received (4.3 average rating). However, since the short-story companions were still NA, it didn't really fit within my brand.
So, after talking with my agent, we've decided to do a re-write of Aradia Awakens, taming the sex scenes and smoothing the flow to meet the rest of my YA/NA brand. And with it, is also releasing a BRAND-NEW short-story novella that takes place between books one and two. (Book two will be coming out later next year.)
2018 is off to a bang! Handler, my sci-fi/dystopian standalone was released back in December and was met with a great reception! TS901 #2 is in the works, as well as the final books for The Women of Purgatory series, and The Witches of BlackBrook series. Also, my Havenwood Falls Legends story will be released on June 1st.
