They were deadly enemies, until a greater threat made them
unwilling allies...and lovers.
Sherandar is the most cunning adversary Quazar has ever faced.
He never knows when or where his worst nightmare will strike, but when she does,
it's with the single-minded purpose to taunt him. Ridicule him. And to make his
life a living hell. Regular cuffs and jail cells can't hold her, yet somehow,
someway, Quazar has to bring her reign to a screeching halt.
But when a new enemy makes himself known, and tries to kill both
Quazar and Sherandar, the two combatants realize the only way to defeat this
deadly threat is to call a temporary truce and join forces.
It isn't until she lies broken, bloodied, and dying in his arms
that Quazar realizes she has become more to him than his temporary ally. He has
fallen in love with her.
deadly necklaces, delectable desserts, a skintight costume, an antique stove,
dining table sex, and a bored megalomaniac who has no qualms about killing
because he just wants to watch the world burn.

Help the sequel happen for an award-winning urban fantasy!
On October 31, 2013, I released the e-book edition of Ravensblood
an urban fantasy set in the Pacific Northwest and crowdfunded through
Kickstarter. (Trade paperback edition released this spring.) It
garnered many glowing reviews on Amazon, including a positive review from the notoriously tough review site Smart
Bitches, Trashy Books, and it won a gold medal in the 2014 Global E
Book Awards in the category of contemporary fantasy.
I see the Ravensblood
as one that can be returned to again and again. It already has its
passionate devotees. One of my beta readers traveled here from France
to take the Ravensblood
tour of Portland, One reader who bought
the book when it first came out put aside the work she was doing on
deadline to finish reading the novel. A supporter gave me the funds to
pay the cover artist, and musicians among my support base did a custom
arrangement of the music for the video trailer as well as editing the
trailer itself. (Do check out the video, for the music if for no other
reason. It's spine-tingling good.)
So where do you come in? I
got a good start with the I first book, but I need to get more books out
there to build a readership. Mostly, I need to pay my freelance
editor in order to put out the sequel, because, to paraphrase an old
axiom, any writer who acts as her own editor has a fool for a client. I
will be using the some editor I did for Ravensblood.
Anything above what I need to pay the editor will go to promotional costs.
A little bit about the book that started it all:
In a life of impossible choices when sometimes death magic is the lesser
of the evils, can a dark mage save the world and his own soul? Corwyn
Ravenscroft. Raven. The last heir of an ancient family of dark mages, he
holds the secret to recreating the Ravensblood, a legendary magical
artifact of immense power.
Cassandra Greensdowne is a Guardian. Magical
law enforcement for the elected council— and Raven’s former apprentice
and lover. She is trying to live down her past. And then her past comes
to the door, asking for her help.
As a youth, Raven wanted to be a
Guardian but was rejected because of his ancestry. In his pride and his
anger, he had turned to William, the darkest and most powerful mage of
their time. William wants a return to the old ways, where the most
powerful mage was ruler absolute. But William would not be a True King
from the fairy tales. He would reign in blood and terror and darkest
Raven discovers that he does have a conscience. It’s rather
He becomes a spy for the council that William wants to
overthrow, with Cassandra as his contact. Cass and Raven have a plan to
trap William outside his warded sanctuary. But William is one step ahead
of the game, with Raven’s life, his soul, and the Ravensblood all in
And about Raven's Wing
we saw Raven’s struggle
to escape the world of dark magic he’d committed to as a bitter young man. In Raven’s Wing
he has to come to terms
with both his past and his ancestry and figure out his new place in the Three
Communities and among the people who enter his life. The task becomes more
difficult, of course, when he finds himself on the run, trying to find the
stolen Ravensblood in order to protect the Three Communities and beyond from
the dangers presented by this powerful artifact in the wrong hands, and at the
same time prove himself innocent of the theft.
Raven finds support in unlooked-for places, but he faces an unknown enemy who is cunning, ruthless and powerful.
The manuscript for Raven's Wing
is complete, needed only the deft hand of my talented editor before publication.
