New Release Announcement

Greetings and salutations!

Apologies for the silence but as I mentioned in July, I have been hard at work on revamping the Crystal Palace Chronicles series. Originally the stories I had in mind for Heroes and Hearts and Descendants of Quendaris were one and the same but I figured I would expand the story into two books, giving Isabel and Nancy their own stories. Well, the ladies and their heroes made it abundantly clear that they did not like to be separated and I was unable to work on book 3 until I went back and fixed a few things. So the couples are together again in an even bigger, more elaborate adventure!

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you The Chronicles of Quendaris, Book One: The Heart of Kendra. Estimated release date: November 15, 2013 in ebook and paperback form!

Synopsis

She wanted help from no man, yet she had a vulnerability that drew him to her.

For a quarter of a century, war has ravaged lands, torn families apart and destroyed lives. It even affected those oblivious to the fact there even was a war. Isabel Kendra, a chef raised by a single mother in New Jersey, flees from her home after being attacked on a dark and stormy night. She soon finds herself embroiled in a battle against fallen deities, witches and monsters bent on her destruction while finding the balance between drawing on inner strength and accepting help from a dashing prince insistent on coming to her rescue.

She was no one’s pawn!

Groomed to be the perfect Southern belle, debutante and trophy wife in Texas, Nancy has had every aspect of her life dictated to her and she’s sick of it! The sudden death of her parents sets Nancy on an adventure filled with spies and intrigue, magic and of course, an arranged marriage she wants no part of.

Deep within the dark depths of the earth an ancient enemy awakens from his slumber…

Determined as ever to conquer the world, the Goblin King wakes to discover his chance to win the war, and only an ancient and powerful magic can defeat him. Do Isabel and Nancy have what it takes to lead the Crystal Palace Alliance to victory, reveal a traitor, and bring peace to Otherealm once and for all?
