Happy Release Day to Of Deceit and Snow!
November 8, 2022

Hooray for Of Deceit and Snow's book birthday! This book has been in the works for a little over a year, and it is now available for the world to read! Each book release is always a little nerve-wracking, but in all honesty, this story is my favorite one yet. I hope you think so too!

You can find more Release Day celebration in my blog and on social media, and purchase info can be found under the "The Crowned Chronicles" page under the "Books" tab.

Happy reading!

Of Deceit and Snow Cover Reveal and Pre-Order
September 17, 2022

Long time no website update! First, I'm so sorry for failing to keep this section of my website up-to-date. I have to admit that I've been focusing more on learning the social media side of things and keeping my readers updated through Facebook and Instagram. I assure you, I have been hard to work getting Of Deceit and Snow ready for publication!

And I've got great news! Of Deceit and Snow's cover is ready for the entire world to see! The amazing Lena Yang produced yet another stunning cover for the continuation of The Crowned Chronicles, and I couldn't be happier with how it came out--and how it looks next to Of Legends and Roses!

The next installment of Rosemary's story is almost in your hands!
The release date is November 8, 2022, and the Kindle edition is available for pre-order here. The hardcover will also be available for pre-order and will be slowly trickling into availability across bookselling sites, and the paperback will be available on Release Day.

Visit my blog to see Of Deceit and Snow's beautiful cover! Or simply click here.

Thank you so much for your continued support as I continue my author journey, and as Rosemary continues a journey of her own!

Happy reading!
