Darkness is nearing the finish line of the current draft- I’m thinking that it’ll end up slightly shorted than Vengeance but I’ve learned that ideas strike at random at times. Perfect example of this is how suddenly one of my villains got a rat that fetches things. I have a few ideas for teasers and excerpts coming up so stay tuned for that but I’ve been kinda buckling down partly in promo mode but mainly in creative mode. I don’t want to give too much away really I will say though since I’ve somewhat said it randomly on my Facebook page and stuff this is probably the meanest ending so far of all the books. I also have the cover mocked up/ worse case pretty much designed if something falls apart for what’s going on with it.
I’m also happy to announce- if you haven’t seen it yet that Kakri is currently in permafree status. So if you ever wanted to try my writing but were really sitting on the fence it is a good place to start- while it does take place after Vengeance it is a real standalone adventure really. Also for those who use idevices check the itunes store if you haven’t and you’ll get both books in there now as well.
Another note before I depart I want to thank you all again for all your support. It is because of you that I was able to break through the top 100 in three different categories with Kakri and the top 100,000 with Vengeance during this past promo. It blows my mind still that we were able to do that and that it still ranks as high as it is. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for it – it definitely keeps the hard times writing at bay.
Okay so its been pretty quiet, but for good reason. I’ve been busy typing away at Darkness which I’m hopefully going to finish another chapter of tonight. I did have this awesome news when I checked on Kakri’s rank today. If you saw the previous post a few days ago this experiment of mine has been going good.
The problem now is to decide if I should perma free it or not since its set as a stand alone as much as a sequel to Vengeance it is a good place to jump into my writing. Right now I’m torn but going am to see how the weekend and Monday go for me to fully decide. Regardless of how things go with Kakri- Vengeance’s fate is sealed- it is only available for $0.99 cents until evening Monday before it jumps back up to its regular price.
My mind so far I will say is blown by the experiment, I haven’t done any large promos on it at all – medium ones at best and alerting some of the blogs (Thanks to all those who have shared it for me) but still have had a good amount of success. Thanks all for your continued support! ❤
So yesterday I finally was able to start a semi-experiment/ uncharted territory when Kakri was made free for you all to “purchase”. I didn’t do too much to get word out about the change and just left it. This morning I wake up to this upon checking the page:
So I go to my dashboard to see how well exactly it fared and was pretty pleased so far given my advertising efforts so far. Then as I was flipping randomly through the different Amazons I saw I had sold Vengeance of Segennya overseas making it my first international sale. Now here’s hoping the momentum continues- its definitely put me on cloud nine today.
Obligatory reminder because yeah- Kakri is currently available for free, and Vengeance of Segennya available for 99 pennies! Also if I didn’t mention it they’re both now on the iTunes store for you apple users! Kakri and Vengeance
I present- as soon as everything finalizes, the newish covers for Vengeance and Kakri. I say newish since they essentially have the same cover art though I considered updating it to more normal lines but I rather like the uniqueness of these so just the text effects were done. I think though it makes the pop a bit more, and definitely solves an issue I was having on Kakri’s cover of blending with the text but doesn’t overwhelm the cover. Kakri also got an updated blurb.
(For those who don’t want to click on the cover.)
The Gods have long been silent in Segennya, but that’s about to change.
Kakri has long watched Segennya fight and struggle from a distance. Liz’s new age has so much potential she can’t help but step in and try to preserve it. Tensions still run which doesn’t make the task easy. Making matters more complicated someone is using them to start a hunt for treasure long lost even to the Gods as a means of stirring up mischief.
It seems as though Kakri’s plans against this are working; at least until the day Liz and the Goddess find themselves trapped below the earth. As the pair attempt to find a way out, they discover the earth has treasures of its own and won’t let them go easy. Soon, a battle ensues to navigate and survive as a mistake of Kakri’s resurfaces and proves far worse than she thought.
I also want to announce until 4-11 both books are for sale for 99 pennies in ebook format, get them while you can!
Okay dropping in at long last this evening with the most up to date buy links for Kakri (Paperback links are still processing for Amazon and beyond). Because it very much wants to join your library and/ or arrive at your home!

This is technically the second book in the series but is a standalone and can be read without reading Vengeance of Segennya with really no spoilers. If you want to read Vengeance before Kakri it’s still 99 pennies at Amazon, B&N, Smashwords until Monday!
Kakri’s cover is still up for the Best Book Cover of 2014 over here as entry 69, first round voting closes the tenth so please cast your ballot!
So different blog post than I wanted to post today, I was actually going to finish a blog post from yesterday that I started but life decided to say forget it. Today I still might go and finish it but this is a tad more important to at least put out there considering how much I’ve been talking about it lately.
Sadly with a heavy heart I have to announce that Kakri’s release has been delayed due to some foreseen circumstances. Tentatively I’m hoping to make a new date of March 7th, since everything- fingers crossed will be well and done by then. So the party has been moved until then as well despite the later date I’m still looking forward to hanging out with everyone and hopefully given it will be two weeks later we’ll be able to make it bigger and better. Yeah, I’m trying to look very much at the positive of it all. In addition I’m extending the sale on Vengeance of Segennya until around then as well, exact date such as if it will go past the 7th isn’t known right now.
Wish I had better news but what can you do sometimes, great thing about indie publishing, no deadlines just hate I had to break a date I had set a month in advance. Sorry again my lovelies, and thanks for your support.
Okay so maybe that title needs work, forgive me, my brain isn’t quite functioning yet due to having been jolted awake by realization that my alarms somehow both failed me. But I digress. I’m happy to announce that Vengeance is currently on sale for 99 pennies until the 24th on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Smashwords! After the 24th it will go back up to its normal price so get it while its hot.
And while I’m doing some early morning pimping of things, Friday we’re partying so tell your friends! Also author’s check out the post I linked for the form if you want to come hang out for a couple hours during the party.
Seriously- thanks to everyone who’s bought my books already, who’s reviewed them, reached out and told me what they thought of Vengeance and just for the general support. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Got a book lover on your to get list for Valentine’s Day? Well I’m here to offer a solution since Vengeance of Segennya is on sale for $1.99 in honor of the holiday.
