I am definitely excited about this one. In this second anthology, I have contributed a little story based around the events of the Turkish Genocide against the Armenians—a story of the resilience of spirit that has kept this ancient culture strong throughout its history of persecution and adversity. And if The Ornament spreads a little holiday feeling along the way, even better.
This anthology holds the contributions of some pretty talented writers and makes a great Christmas gift to someone who loves to read. I hope you enjoy.
It's finally here! The release date for Marielle's Witch has come and gone. So far, the reviews and comments have been amazing and I want to thank everyone that pre-ordered, and those that are ordering now. If you haven't yet, check the links on the home page. I never expected to have such a large and wonderful group of readers following my work. Send me a comment and let me know what you think.
So, this happened. Due to some unforeseen issues, were were forced to scramble for another cover. As it happens, I have a crack team of professionals behind me and this is the result of a lot of blood and sweat and vodka. I can't say I wasn't a bit disappointed with having to lose the cover we started with, but I'm quite happy with this one, and most who have seen it like it much better. So there you have it. Launch date is as before, July 1st, 2021. Enjoy!
Many have asked me when my next book would be available for preorder. Barnes and Noble are the first ones to get it up on their site with the others to follow. Chapters Indigo is always slow to get the physical copies ready but the e-book is there. So it's not released until June, but for those of you who want to get in on it early, here it is. I appreciate all the support from those who have read my first one and those who have left me kind messages and generous reviews. Thank you. Enjoy.
A special thanks to SNAPD for doing this little write up on me in their paper. It is much appreciated!
Even as the launch of Marielle's Witch approaches, new readers are discovering the story of Laplace and his demon. And despite physical bookstores being closed all over the world for a large part of the year, the response to my little novel has been overwhelming.
I have received photos of people holding my book from all over the world. Everywhere from Canada to Taiwan, Japan, France, Italy, Germany...even Saudi Arabia, Laplace has had the pleasure of traveling. I am humbled and grateful to everyone who took the time to send me these greetings, strangers, and friends all.
Today I am sending a special shout-out to Salem (Pictured above with permission) from the beautiful state of Texas to thank her for reading my story. Her father Gayle went through the effort of getting her a signed copy for Christmas, and though it didn't arrive on time, (I blame Covid) I hope she enjoys the journey it brings her on.
If you haven't yet read Laplace's Demon, now is the time. With the second book in the Sword Demon Series just about ready to hit the printer, there is no better time to start delving into the story of Professor Haefastien Arsenault, otherwise known as Laplace.
Have a look at the trailer below.
I am pleased to announce that the editing of the second installment in the Sword Demon Series is well underway and going smoothly. Everything is on schedule and MARIELLE'S WITCH should hit store shelves in 2021.
The support I have received for the first book was amazing, and I hope this novel takes the story in a new and exciting direction.
Here it is at last. It has been a long road to get to this point, but with the support and help of many people along every step of this process, my debut novel is now available and about to hit shelves. As my editor, Janelle, said, it really does take a village to get a book from manuscript to the finished product. She was not kidding. I am very thankful for that village.
After all that, I'm not sure if I'm excited or relieved. Maybe it's a mix of the two.
Years ago I sat on a bench by the river Seine in Paris and watched as a young girl pulled her father by the hand—and I was amazed at how powerless he was to resist. The backdrop of the setting sun over the river behind them gave the pair an other-worldly glow. The idea was born from that image and stayed with me until it evolved into the story it is today.
Enjoy. The story doesn't end here.
