My ninth Music of the Soul book is published!

On April 16, 2014 my eBook, Progeny, was added at! Of course, print on demand paperbacks are available as well! I almost couldn't keep track of how fast my awesome readers were grabbing copies the moment Amazon listed the book! This proves to me that I have the best readers ever!

Being a creature of habit, I'll begin with a little talk about this new book before I give an overview of the storyline. The main characters in this emotional romance are strong women who fall prey to misunderstandings and misreading situations. Thier love for each other and thier great friends help get them back on track.

This book is the ninth book to reside in the Music of the Soul universe. Like all of the other books in the MOTS series, we find that what people believe is normal does not apply. Normal is the differences that bring us irresistibly together and make us all stronger.


In Progeny, we get to witness the epic meeting between Samantha Roth and Abbey Jacobs. But we quickly learn it was not that fairytale beginning we all believed. In fact, Sammie took an instant dislike to Abbey, but couldn't help but feel an underlying attraction.

A senior at the Art Academy takes them under her wing. She is none other than June Harris-West! Daughter to Many Fay Harris and Congresswoman Anabella West! She becomes their wise(ass) guru and mentor who leads them through the chaotic storm of heartbreak and love.

Everyone knew that Abbey and Sammie were destined to be together except the two insecure girls themselves. Now if only everyone could get them to listen!


The message behind this book is simply "Take a Chance", you never know what wonders await unless you take the journey. Don't let others define you and never make assumptions, things aren't always as they seem. Plus, on a fun note, the other message is that you can't find a better friend than June!

My readers are simply awesome, there isn't a better word to describe them. The instant I published this new addition to the series, it started selling. I am so very excited to share the next book in the MOTS series with you soon, Girl Next Door, featuring Penny Franklin's twins and an exciting new character, Robin! It will come out following the next book in the Valkyrie Chronicles series, Seventy Two Hours.

As I always do, I want my readers to know that I love them and appreciate any feedback, positive or negative. I also accept stuffed platypus.

There is a sneak peek chapter of the fourth book in my Valkyrie Chronicles series, Seventy Two Hours, at the end of the book. It may upset some fans of the series, but I promise, the story will be worth it and the ending will be beyond epic!

I'd love to hear feedback and discussion from YOU about the characters in Progeny. I'd love to discuss the story with you!

Books on Audio!

I have been working to make my books more accessible over the past few months. One of the projects has been getting my books converted to audio books.

At first it looked overwhelming and far outside of my budget as quality vocal talent charges between $100-200 per hour to narrate. It is well deserved as it is a difficult and technical task to do it correctly. But that unfortunately means $1,400-2,000 per book to produce.

You can see my dilemma, with 13 published books so far and at least that many in the works, the price tag was staggering. $18,200-26,000 just for my existing books. That's a lot out of pocket up front. But I ran across the ACX program by Amazon. They pair up producers with authors and have a royalty sharing plan that allows you to have a book produced by amazing voice talents for no cash outlay up front. Instead, the producer receives 50% of the author's royalties on sales of the audiobook.

So I pounced on the opportunity and have two awesome voice talents producing my audio books!

Pamela Lorence is currently producing the books in the Music of the Soul series, and Hollie Jackson is producing all of my my SciFi and paranormal series... Valkyrie Chronicles, Fracture, and Drakon!

The best news yet is that The first books in the Music of the Soul series and the Valkyrie Chronicles series have just been released on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes!

You can get Music of the Soul on audio at the following locations...
iTunes coming soon!

You can get Valkyrie Chronicles: Return of the Asgard on audio at the following locations...
