I hope you had a great and restful holiday season. We had a blast here and I just couldn’t wait to share some awesome news with you. I have a new book coming out! I know, I know, it’s been a while, but this one’s definitely worth it. I’ve decided to enter When Darkness Falls, the first book in a new YA urban fantasy series, in a cool program called Kindle Scout.

Have you ever heard of Kindle Scout? It’s where authors post their books and readers can nominate their favorites (up to three at a time). It’s that simple! At the end of a book’s campaign, Scout editors will review each entry and potentially offer the author a contract. If the books you pick get selected, you’ll get a FREE copy. Even if it doesn’t get picked up, I’ll be offering some awesome sales and giveaways to those who nominated it, so it’s a win-win situation! If you’re interested,check out When Darkness Falls’ campaign at https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/2373LXXXSIXEQ.

Read on for a synopsis. If you’d like a sneak peek, visit the link above to read the first two chapters. And if you really, really like it, nominate it for your chance to get a free copy and help me get published by Amazon!when-darkness-falls-ebook

When Darkness Falls… the monsters come out to play.

A missing father.

A mysterious lighthouse.

A girl willing to risk it all to learn the truth.

The last thing seventeen-year-old Austen Gillet expected to find on her way home from work was her dad’s car on the side of the road, empty except for the dead woman inside.

Determined to discover the truth about what happened to her father, Austen enlists the help of Ezra, a newcomer with secrets of his own, and Ian, an eccentric lighthouse keeper. Delving deeper into her town’s dark history, Austen uncovers reports of missing people, mysterious monsters, portals to other worlds, and mayhem stretching back well over a century.

While coming to terms with her new, nightmarish reality, Austen has to figure out who she can trust, who wants her father dead, and what’s really going on underneath the surface of her small town before it costs her her life.
