New Look & Other News


After a lot of thought, I've decided to re-vamp my not only my covers but the interior of each book. This was such a hard decision for me as I really love the artwork for what I am now calling my first editions. Leticia was able to capture so much of my vision and I will be forever grateful to her. These first editions will still be displayed proudly on my website and elsewhere (Goodreads, etc). However, I felt that I needed to do something to attract new readers. Maybe it will work out, maybe it won't, but at least I tried. And I'll have a few new covers I can be proud of. Deranged Doctor Design really came through for me!

I also said that I would be re-designing my interiors. The paperback editions will be streamlined. I hadn't noticed that my sequel's font was bigger than the first book. This resulted in higher printing costs (bigger font=more pages=$$$) and less money for me. So, I've standardized the look and feel of my series and I think they look great now. As for the kindle versions, I have also redone those entirely. They now look closer to print books in my opinion. And all my initial styling (i.e. italics) are back! It was quite a manual process sometimes (and lots of coding), but I think they look a lot better now. I don't know about you, but I hated the way paragraphs were spaced out and such. Anyway, live and learn, right?

As for Daughter of Darkness, I'm so excited to announce that it will be here soon! I know, still no date yet, but I foresee a March or April release. I want everything to be superb and polished and for that time is needed.

I have plans for another novel, but those are still in the beginning stages. And I guess I will be tinkering with my website a little bit in the upcoming months to match my new look (you might have noticed a few changes already). The new covers and interiors will be rolling out as they're ready. From the Darkness Comes will start it off this week. Here are the new covers (so far) by Deranged Doctor Design:

The year 2020 is looking great!
