Cover Reveal: Redeem, The Caelian Cycle #2.5


Hello Beautiful People!

I have been waiting for weeks to share this cover with you and I'm so exited to get it out there. If you haven't guessed or read the blurb yet, this novella is from Kian's point-of-view and it's set before Lost. I wrote this novella because there are events that happen in the third novel, Shift, that needed some background. Plus, I felt Kian needed a bit more explanation of his actions in Lost and, personally, I wanted the readers to understand why he is who he is. 

Redeem ripped some hard emotions out of me and I feel it came across in the story and although I haven't finished Shift yet, Redeem has been one of my favorite stories I have ever written.

So here it is people, Redeem:

It took me FOREVER to find a male model that even remotely looked like Kian does in my head and then it took EVEN LONGER to find one that was wearing clothes. LOL!!!

Redeem - A Caelian Cycle Novella #2.5

A boy without a voice.

A teen without a home.

A man without hope.

Kian knows the way his life is headed will be the death of him. It doesn’t matter how many criminals he catches for Gordon's Bounty Detective Agency or how deep he tries to fall into the bottle – those eyes haunt him. All it took was one whisper of bad advice, one wrong choice, one mistake, to wipe out years of confidence he had struggled to build while living on his Grandmother’s farm. Then Kian found the box of files overflowing with unsolved crimes. Those cold cases jolted his soul from its vegetative state and awakened his resolve. Kian knew those cases were meant for him to solve, but the last thing he expected to find within a few wrinkled folders was his ultimate redemption.

Release Date: January 18th, 2016

Inspiration Board - Rebecca

Hello Beautiful People!

I've received quite a few emails lately asking some questions about The Caelian Cycle. (please hold while I run around and squee) It warms my heart to see people interested in the books and characters. I will answer your questions in a blog post soon, but first here's an in-depth look at...

Rebecca 

Rebecca was a character I HAD to put in the book series. Every girl needs loyal BFF's and Sadie is lucky to have two. Her name and a few of her personality quirks are a nod to my own high school best friend who was the glue that held my sanity together during some trying times. I also borrowed a few of her traits, the ones I admire most, from my bestie and sister in law. 

To me, Rebecca is a study of opposites. She's not your typical beauty, but her siren Talent makes her attractive to others. Her personality is both sultry, but with an undertone of innocence. She's outgoing and others are drawn to her, but clings to her small group of friends instead of going out to party like Madison. If she has a strong opinion about something, she fights for it and doesn't let anyone sway her focus. Her look-at-the-bright-side attitude brightens the group and her gentle wisdom guides her friends. 

Sadie and Rebecca are connected on a deeper level than with the others in the group. They've lived together since childhood and as two of six Caelian's with colored skin at St. Vincent's, they've had a whole different set of issues than the other's.

In Bound, Rebecca will go through some life altering changes and will have to dig deep into her soul for strength that she didn't know she possessed. That is true for any person. Growth and change are always hard, but its how we handle them that makes us better or in some cases, worse. Rebecca and the others will have to grow in order to become the adults needed to change the world.

Stay Awesome!

It’s a really super awesome feeling to search your name on Amazon or Barnes & Nobel and see your book pop up. If you are interested in purchasing an eBook copy of Lost then please pre-order on your favorite site.

Pre-ordering is important to indie, and traditionally published, authors because each purchase in the pre-order period is stacked at counted towards the first weeks sales.
