Yasmine Galenorn--New York Times Bestselling Author

And so, here we are...

Caly and Morgan wish you a happy spring! Life's been full of ups and downs here, mostly 'ups' but also a lot of medical issues with friends, dealing with my own histamine intolerance, and one thing and another. I'm looking forward to spring really taking hold for awhile. New adventures await this year and I'm all for climbing on board.

Which leads me to the end of one road. After a long, long journey, we're here at the end of the D'Artigo's saga. I know many of you are sad, and I'm so touched that you took the sisters into your heart. But every story has an ending, and their tale is no exception. I'm ready to see them have their peace--and ready for their journey to be done. I've got so many worlds to write, and so many ideas, that for me, it's been one leg in a long career.

This newsletter has a lot of info in it--a recipe, news about a new short story coming up, a cover reveal, preorder news, and of course, the links to Blood Bonds. So read on and have a wonderful rest of the month!

 

Finally, after thirteen years and 21 books!

"The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things: Of shoes -  and ships - and sealing wax - Of cabbages - and kings."

And so, after thirteen years, my Otherworld saga comes to an end with the 21st book. The last book releases tomorrow (in e-format and audio. The POD print editions will be available within a week), and the long journey will be over.

I want to thank all my readers for the love, support, and enthusiasm you poured into this series. I hope that you enjoy my other work just as much or more, and that you enjoy the last book in the D'Artigo's world. It's written different than all the others so that I could tie up the loose ends, but I feel I did the sisters proud. And to forestall questions...no, this really is the end of the series. The sisters deserve their peace, and I am definitely ready to move on to my new worlds.

KINDLE | NOOK | iBOOKS | KOBO

The Wild Hunt is on the trail of the Tuathan Brotherhood—a hate group terrorizing humans and shifters alike. Their investigation takes them over to the Olympic Peninsula, where they plunge into the heart of the haunted old-growth forest in a desperate attempt to stop the group before they strike again.

Meanwhile, one of Herne’s friends turns to the Wild Hunt. He’s unwittingly unleashed a terrifying spirit who threatens Port Ludlow with the fury of her storms. Now, they must not only locate Rafé, who has vanished while undercover in the forest, but they must also appease the Cailleach before she destroys the entire community and everyone within it.

 

Cover Reveal!

RAVEN'S FIRST BOOK!

WITCHING HOUR:
Wild Hunt, Book 7: An Ante-Fae Adventure
Due out July 8, 2019 (No preorder Yet)

Is your house overrun with ghosts? Do you need to contact the dead? Or perhaps, have your fortune read? Come to the Witching Hour, where Raven will take care of all your midnight-of-the-soul needs.

Raven BoneTalker, also known as the Daughter of Bones, is one of the Ante-Fae—the dangerous, unpredictable predecessors to the Fae Races. But Raven is young, and she likes interacting with mortals, so she’s opened a business—the Witching Hour—where she takes on clients with ghostly problems. Mostly she reads cards, boots out the odd poltergeist, or helps grieving families contact their loved ones for closure.

But when Lana, one of her friends, comes begging for help, things take a dark turn. Raven investigates what seems like a simple haunting on the surface. But the more she delves into the case, the more she realizes that this is no simple ghost. As Raven untangles a web of secrets and deceits kept for over fifty years, she finds herself in danger, facing not only a ghostly threat, but also a danger that is very much alive.

Coconut Raspberry Cake

I've been asked for the recipe for this cake SO MANY TIMES since I first posted the picture on my Instagram. So here it is! It's free of gluten, dairy, and nuts except for coconut.

Yasmine's Coconut Raspberry Cake

Cake:

  • 1 box King Arthur's Yellow Cake Mix (gluten free)
  • 4 eggs 
  • 1/4 cup oil (I know what the box says but I like the texture better this way)
  • 2/3 cup coconut or rice milk (you can use regular milk or almond milk if you like)

Whip the ingredients together till well mixed. Pour into two greased 9" cake pans and bake until top is golden and springs back from the touch. Remove, cool, thoroughly.

Frosting:

(I use shortening or the Earth Balance's coconut spread, the only margarine I can use, but you can use butter or other margarine).

  • 2 cups shortening/butter/margarine 
  • 6 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp raspberry extract
  • 1/3 cup framboise liqueur (I use Chateau Monet)

Beat shortening until very fluffy.
Add 2 cups powdered sugar and beat well.
Add liqueur and extract, beat well.
Add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until light and fluffy and the consistency you like.

Filling: 1 jar of seedless raspberry jam (I prefer Crofters brand). Put into small bowl and whip until easy to spread.

You will also need: 1 12-oz package of sweetened, shredded coconut.

TO ASSEMBLE: 

  • Place one thoroughly cooled layer of cake on the serving platter/cake stand.
  • Spread evenly with about a 1/4" layer of buttercream.
  • Spread 1/2 the jam over the buttercream, swirling.
  • Place second layer of cake on top of bottom layer.
  • Use skewers to hold firmly.
  • Coat entire cake with a thin layer of the buttercream.
  • Set in freezer for one-half hour to firm up.
  • Frost cake with more icing to your liking.
  • Gently press handfuls of coconut to cover.
  • Chill until time to serve.

This cake always vanishes when I make it for company--people love it, and even though I love chocolate, it's become my favorite cake to make. One other tip I'll give you--I wear non-latex disposable gloves when pressing the coconut to the cake. It keeps the frosting from trying to stick to your hands.
