Is it just me, or are the days, months, and years passing by much faster?
Yes, yes, I know. I skipped February. I got the reminder to send out my newsletter and then I didn't. Then I kept thinking I need to send out my newsletter... and I didn't.
So, here we are in March and I'm sending out my newsletter. I should call this one Febru-March, but I decided to just own up to the fact that I skipped February. Maybe it's because my birthday is in February and I just don't want to admit that I'm another year older. Maybe it's because I'm single and all the lovey-dovey junk pushed me into denial.
No matter the excuse, I am Marching it up and getting things done. Newsletter. Check. Taxes. Almost check. Finding my new home. Not even close.
Yeah, I'm still crashing at my Dad's place, but I am a bit closer to finding out where I want to put down roots. Leaving Portland was hard and easy. Isn't that how life is? It's been fun living closer to my family, but I still feel so unsettled. I want to buy a home, but the housing market is a joke right now unless you're rolling in dough.
The writing front has been a bit on the sparse side. So far this year, I have been spending my time working on better marketing strategies to get my books out there and feeling like I am failing spectacularly. However, I am considering doing a cover reboot on my Storm Series to see if that helps the marketing front. We'll see how that goes.
I would like your opinion if you would send me your response below. Do you like the new version on the left, or the original cover on the right?
Which version of the Storm Child cover do you prefer?
Thank you for giving your opinion. Every bit of feedback helps.
I've also been writing some romantic suspense novels. I do love the suspense with romance. What can I say? I'm a hopeless romantic. Along with that, I am doing some final edits on The Swan Curse and prepping it to publish the print and ebook version. (It's currently on Kindle Vella.)
Other than that, I have been going through the storage unit and realizing that I don't really need all the stuff I have, especially since I've survived without it for the last two months. I'm not a minimalist, but this experience has brought me much closer. LOL.
Hopefully, March will march me into a better place physically, mentally, and spiritually. With a little bit of luck, right?
From Book 1:
Ever feel like you don’t belong?
Try being a hunter living with werewolves. I’m the definition of “doesn’t fit in”. I’m not Pack, but I’m not the enemy, either.
I struggle to survive among werewolves who are stronger and faster than me, and are competitive enough to break a bone or two for the sake of “fun.”
Greyson, their alpha, is the worst of them all.
Blatantly relentless and twice as deadly, Greyson rules the Pack and expands its territory even though it’s already the largest in the region. I just wish he’d stop interfering with my life. He’s got enough trouble of his own with his incomplete mate bond, but he’s made it his hobby to tease and test me at every opportunity.
Doesn’t my life sound fun?
When wolves from surrounding packs start mindlessly attacking the innocent humans in our city, Timber Ridge, everything changes.
Werewolves don’t turn feral without reason. Which means someone is making this happen, and they’re targeting our Pack.
I don’t like where this is going, but how am I supposed to stop a feral wolf outbreak when I’m just one hunter? Can Greyson and I set aside our differences to see the Pack through this?
Hunted is the first book in the Pack of Dawn and Destiny urban fantasy trilogy and is part of the Magiford Supernatural City world. It features werewolves, hunters, and fae, and is filled with humor, adventure, and a sweet romance that will have you laughing in delight.
So, I love Shea's ability to create a delightful world. She has drawn me into this world. I'm not a huge fan of all the werewolf and vampire hype, but she has created a magical world where everything just fits and it isn't your typical insta love tropes. The last book finally came out and I devoured it! Definitely two thumbs up for this series.
