Check out the wonderful Archangel art that was done for me by the lovely and talented Danielle Ellison of Mad Robot Designs. If you need art, I highly recommend Danielle. She's incredibly talented and was a complete joy to work with. As to who's who, from left to right: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Samael, Tzadkiel, Remiel, Haniel, Metatron and Raziel.
"City of Jade" has won an Honorable Mention Award and a Finalist Award in the 2013 Rainbow Awards for Best Gay Historical Romance. I am overwhelmed and can't say thank you enough to the judges and to Elisa.
Free Reads: Now there's a page for free reads. You can find the link via the 'books' tab.
Mythica, a m/m paranormal romance set in South Australia, in the country towns of Tiddy Widdy Beach and Ardrossan, is coming out in 2014 with Bottom Drawer Press, a new publisher located in Queensland, Australia, and I'm very excited and thrilled to be working with these good people on this title.
The Wind-up Forest, The Crystal Lake, The Bone Cup - the next three novels in the Archangel Chronicles out at the end of 2013 and into 2014 with Dreamspinner Press.
