Books and News

Hi Everyone,

I'm once again on my own blog today. I have been so busy with the two books I have been working on that I actually forgot the blog that should have been published on Sept 5th. Sorry about that to everyone who follows.

Books:

Today was exciting as I signed the contract for the last book in the Sasha Bishop series. Estimated publication date is sometime in 2019. I am guessing around Spring or Summer depending on the publishing schedule. I am excited about this book because I literally rewrote parts of the ending three times! I couldn't make up my mind what I wanted for my characters. They have been a part of my  head since 2014. 

Part of my problems stemmed from a new character, Blake. I wanted to write him as evil and rotten, but then another side of Blake emerged during the writing that changed the whole course of the book, not to mention the main characters life. If you want to learn more about Blake, there is a character interview I did with him a few months ago on the blog. Look it up and check him out. He's a hotty! 

I have also been working on the final edits for the last book in the Forest of the Mist series. I finished the first round of edits and am waiting for the second round. We are still on target for a December 5th release date.

Blurb for Sasha Bishop: The Return

Sasha Bishop is the Slayer who is married to 168 year old vampire hotty, Andrew "Hutch" Hutcherson. Together they have battled his father, his psycho ex-girlfriend, and high school. Nothing could have prepared Sasha for her next mission in life...motherhood! 

Now a freshman in college, Sasha prepares for the birth of her daughter, the final battle with the vamps of Craig's Creek, and the search for missing vampire friend, Marybeth. . Her plans take a nose dive when evil vampire Blake Hutcherson, half-brother of Hutch, arrives in Craig's Creek with a hidden agenda. He wants his half-brother dead so he can have Sasha and her daughter for himself. 

Sasha makes plans to destroy the vamps from Craig's Creek once and for all. She forms a wary alliance with Blake much to the annoyance of Hutch, to discover the truth. Is it Blake or Preston Perry Beacom, III, behind the sudden vamp infestation? To learn the truth and protect her loved ones, Sasha strikes a bargain with Blake that could save them all or destroy her family forever.


News:

I am still using Plexus and am still pleased with the results. It's been a little over a month since I began. I am down 9 pounds. Truthfully, I could probably be down more if I ate better and exercised. My stomach issues are being held at bay. I feel better, am more alert, and feel overall healthier.

I am hoping to get in a couple of book signings before the end of the year, but if I don't, there will definitely be some next year. Hope to meet you at one.

That's all for now. Keep an eye on here and on my social media for more updates on book related news.

Series Feature of Forest of the Mist by: Carly Jordynn

Hey Guys, hope it's been a great couple of weeks for you. Things have been good with me. Crazy busy as usual. 

The Plexus is going great. I'm still losing weight, I feel better, my blood pressure is still down, I'm not as tired as I had been. Sleep has been much better. 

I've been busy working on edits for Guardians. I'm almost done with those and then I can start writing on the last book of the Sasha series. Hoping to get it done by the end of the year.

Last time I promised a series feature of the Forest of the Mist series. The final book is coming out on December 5th, so if you haven't read any of the books, now would be a perfect time to do so. I will have a buy link after each book for your convenience. 

FOREST OF THE MIST:

BOOK ONE:  TRAVELERS...

             Seventeen-year-old Lily Lavery never dreamed her homecoming night would turn out like this. She never expected to become orphaned, in a coma, and enter an alternate reality, all in one evening. No, she thought she would arrive at the homecoming dance to the cheers of her classmates after being crowned homecoming princess at the big game, dance the night away with her handsome boyfriend, Alex McGuire , and maybe end the night in his arms.
 Connor O'Brien  took one look at the girl  who arrived in the alternate reality known as Paradise Valley, and knew she would be trouble. She oozed it from the top of her tiara, down to her cheerleading uniform. Connor knew her type all to well and  vowed to stay away from her. The problem was she looked so sad and broken . The large class ring on her left-hand, ring finger should have been enough to warn him away, but he found himself drawn to her anyway. Together, Connor and Lily must battle Kramm, the Warrior King of the Dark Land, and his second in command, Colin O'Brien, Connor's twin brother, in order to access the portal paths that will lead them back to reality and their sleeping bodies.  What will happen when they return? Will Lily continue her previous life with Alex, or will she stay with Connor, the man of her literal dreams?

BOOK TWO: AWAKENING...

Alex McGuire never dreamed his life would take such a turn. His plan to complete college, become a lawyer, and marry his girlfriend, Lily Lavery, tanked following his kidnapping to the alternate realm known as Paradise Valley. Now Alex has been ordered by a dead man, David Kyle, to marry his young wife, Jennifer Burke Kyle, and raise their infant son, Davy Kyle, as his own. That would be a great plan if it weren’t for the fact that Jennifer is still in a coma, has never met him, and her son has some strange attributes too.

Jennifer Burke Kyle wakes from a coma to find she’s a widow and the mother of a young son who can read minds, create portals to an alternate realm, and has unforeseen growth spurts when he is in or near Paradise Valley. As if that isn’t enough, a complete stranger has stated he is to marry her and raise her son as his own. All on the order of her dead husband, David.

Davy Kyle is tickled pink that Alex McGuire will be his dad and can’t wait for his mother to wake from the coma so the wedding can take place. What Davy doesn’t see is trouble in the form of PRI, otherwise known as the Percival Research Institute. PRI agents are after his family and it is going to be up to Davy to hide them all until it is safe. 

Together, Alex, Jennifer, Davy, and their friends from Paradise Valley must join together to keep the family safe, destroy PRI, and protect the still comatose Colin O'Brien, the last member of their Paradise Valley family. With the help of student nurse Deana Cook, they may just succeed in their plan and find happiness along the way.

BOOK THREE: GUARDIANS...

Davy Kyle is in a ton of trouble. That's really nothing new for Davy as he has been in trouble his whole life. Davy was born in the alternate realm, Paradise Valley. As a result, he has some freakish powers such as rapid growth in body and intelligence, the ability to create portals to transport to the alternate realms, and the ability to know what others are thinking. 

During his last adventure, Davy learned he would one day have a co-ruler in the realms and her name would be Kelly. Through a bit of impromptu eaves dropping, he learned that his friends from Paradise Valley, Connor and Lily O'Brien would name their young daughter, Kelly. Shocked at this coincidence, Davy sets out to determine how Kelly will arrive in Paradise since you have to be in a coma to enter the alternate worlds.

Kelly O'Brien was a spoiled six year old when family friend and confidant, Davy Kyle kidnapped her through a portal to an alternate reality. While there, Davy aged her to sixteen and explained that one day she would be his co-ruler there. While she understood and looked forward to that day, she asked Davy to return her to six and her parents. He did as she asked, but invoked his powers to start accelerated aging and maturity. The alternate realms recognized Kelly and helped with that aging process. 

Now Kelly's parents have enrolled her in high school in the hope she will meet somebody else, fall in love, and forget about Davy and Paradise Valley. What they don't know is Kelly's determination to be with Davy no matter the cost.

 What Davy does to ensure Kelly's arrival in Paradise, is sooner rather than later, will test the ties of his family and friends in reality and may cost him the love of his life. 

COMING SOON DECEMBER 5TH 2018
