Alchemist is now live on Amazon!

Now released for kindle! 

Syreena was simply one of many. Her only responsibility to the horde, where there is no room for emotion and where life is meant solely to further the great Alchemist nation.  

Born in the squalor of the far beneath, Syreena was singled out from the moment she was plucked by the fold, raised on duty and conformity, and one day to lead.

Three clans, powerful and unique, this is the journey of the Alchemist...

Buy Here:

*Alchemist will be released on all other formats soon.

What's going on? An update!

I know that it has been a long time since I have done an update on the progress of the series. Editing has gone slower then I wanted, but now that summer is in full swing and the kids are done with school, it should be completed faster.

But I will let you in on a secret, (How I love them!). I have not just been editing Alchemist, but the Unnamed as well. I have been bouncing between the two, reading one and going right into the next. So after all those words, what I am really saying is, Alchemist and the Unnamed will be released back to back.

So although I have kept you waiting, that wait will be well worth it:)

A Confession!

SO I have a confession to make. I have not done any editing on Alchemist. Not a single bit:(

Not because I have been lazy, but because instead the unnnamed has been taking up all the time. I mentioned before that Zanas, or should I say Zanass, was impatiently waiting for her side to now me told. And as of today the unnamed is finished.

Yes, I just wrote that. Book 3 and Book 4 are now complete in the Alwahi Series. **phew** I tell you it has been a busy couple of months, and I am very excited for you all to see what it has created. 

I gave you a song a while back to give you a hint at Alchemist, I will do the same for the unnamed (I'm close to a name and will blog about it soon).

Here we go, so longing, so filled with betrayal. Exactly what Book 4 will be.

Let me count the ways I love...

I showed you a picture in my last post. Did you recognize him by any chance?

If not this so happens to be Cesare Borgia from the show The Borgias.

Why him? Because he IS Adrrian. He is the forbidden fruit, the man that creeps into your dreams, until you can think of no other. 

He is the devil and the angel all in one, and always remember "We never forgive." The perfect words for the role he plays in The Unnamed.

Adrrian's character is entirely molded after this persona, down to the way he reaches out to grab his love's face, a pool that threatens to drown you with one touch.

Oh how I love this character.

Have no idea what I am talking about? Shame on you. All three seasons of The Borgias are on netflix.

Love The Borgias too? Have you voted for a season 4?

Happy Valentines Day!

Hello all, sorry it has been a week or so since my last post. Took a break from writing for a minute. Considering I wrote 90,000 words in four weeks, and 40,000 of that in one week alone... yes a little time out was needed. But I will be tackling it again this weekend, and finish the last 20,000 words that I have left of the unnammed.

Any secrets that I want to tell you? How about that double rr name I talked about last time. Maybe a little hint at anticipated romance for Valentines Day???

His name is Adrrian, a Pursuer from the above, and an intoxicating adversary...

But then that raises the question, "Just whose adversary is he?"

Plans and Updates

This weekend was very eventful and I am sad to see it go. I decided that I would take a break from Alchemist, and start editing on Monday. From there, I'm looking at a 10 week schedule, give or take a few weeks, depending on how dedicated/lazy I get once the editing begins.

I may have taken a break from Alchemist, but I used the last two days to write, some pretty awesome stuff, on book 4 in the series (still not officially named) which returns the main character of Zanas. It has been so much fun writing from the Pursuer perspective again, such a comfortable homey feeling reminding me of the love that I have for the individual characters.

The bold, brave Zanas.
The ever tempting Dressdon
The full of life Ressna
The devil in blonde Desstina
The always fun twins Tress & Fless

And some new characters... probably my favorite part of this book so far.

I had a character, but I didn't have a name for him, I planned out the entire story arc  in detail on Friday, (6 pages of notes that promise for the longest book so far in the series), and "he" appeared in so many parts as just a ________. I thought about it for days, thinking of names and discarding them. And then I started talking about it to my husband and I realized I could not figure it out because he was not supposed to have the double ss of the Pursuers of the beneath, but a double rr of the Pursuers of the above. Ahhh and this added a whole new lovely piece.

But that's enough secrets for the day, ending with a 13,500 word count for "the unnamed".

Have you ever become so consumed by something that it haunted you every moment of the day? Alchemist has been that current obsession. So much so, that I have been waking up around 4am every morning so I can write before everyone else wakes up. And three weeks since I began to write it, it is finished.

Yes you read that right. FINISHED. My estimate for the release is summer of this year, but it is looking more like spring...shhhh. That's a secret for now. The release date will remain for summer officially.

But the obsession will not stop there, I can already tell. Zanas is demanding that now her side be told, cutting into my thoughts with her story while I was trying to wrap up Alchemist.

Oh and I can tell you, she is going to come back in with a bang. 

One more thing to leave you with, curious as to the tone of Alchemist? This song has heavily influenced it, and there is even a part on the book that pays homage:

"...just her and the stars on her skin, the kiss so bright and everlasting.".

The Alchemist Approaches

It has been a while since I have updated on Alchemist. The progress on this book has been extraordinarily fast, and as of today I am now 40,000 words into the story, with about three or four more chapters left to write.  

Why has it gone so fast? I can honestly say that Syreena has turned into my favorite character of the Alwahi series. She has the strong noble character of Zanas, but she is also a wounded soul, something that I think will call to people far more than the other two characters in the series so far.

I may even love this character enough to give her something that I once thought only reserved for Zanas. Yup, I just might...

Look at the cover! I mentioned before that the other one was just a tease. Well here she is in all her glory. Now this is Syreena.

Pursuer is now Free on Amazon.ca (Canada)

Sixteen-year-old Zanas is beautiful, athletic and fierce. Qualities that have made her feel as though she has never really belonged in her life of wealth and luxury. But everything is about to change, when her plane plummets into the ocean, killing almost everyone on board.

She is left with only her sister, trapped on a mysterious island, both sinister and captivating. Zanas leads the survivors deep into the forest, where hidden dangers could mean their demise with every step.

Taken in by the people of Alwahi, Zanas finds that she can speak their language, and that their Goddess seems to call to her heart. Her newly formed world is torn apart, when her sister is kidnapped by the people of the beneath, and she must follow her deep below the surface, into a magical world that she never believed could ever exist.

Follow Zanas on her journey as she fights to claim her heart and her spirit. Where the fierce Pursuers of the beneath will ask her to give them everything, and where she will find her death or her destiny.

Three clans, powerful and unique, this is the journey of the Pursuer...
