It's available for download in Kindle ebook format now. Here's a little blurb so you know what to expect... The seaside town of Meerith was a good setting for inconsistency. The unpredictable ocean currents brought in inexplicable weather patterns and magic like Malorie’s fit right in. The power to control inanimate objects was a way for her to make sense of the world. A dangerous underground market has emerged in Meerith when a total of six amulets that harness dangerous magical properties have been confiscated from residents and police confirmed that more amulets are out there. … [Read more...] about Mystery of the Magical Amulets (Book 2) is Available Now!

Who is Annabel Chase? This paranormal cozy mystery author is fairly new on the scene and has already made quite a name for herself. I just finished her first book (Curse the Day) in her Spellbound Mystery Series. It was published on January 7th, 2017 with the second book published right on its heels two weeks later. Today marks the beginning of April and Ms. Chase has already published Book Four (Lucky Charm) and revealed the cover for Book 5 on Facebook. Wow! As an author, I can tell you that her writing and publishing schedule is not an easy one. And I have it on good authority that Ms. Chase is standing firmly in the five-figure monthly earners category already - Bravo! Aside from that we don't know much about the author personally - no … [Read more...] about Cozy Indie Author Spotlight: Annabel Chase
That was THE question this past Sunday. September 18th was the intended publishing date for Book 1 of the Eden Series. A date that had already been pushed back... twice. Ugh. I felt stressed and anxious to publish the book... all pressure that was put on myself with my self-imposed publishing deadline (well, this is a business too). Yes, the book has been written - finally - but it is just not ready. Bottom line - it's just not worthy of YOU yet. At the end of the day, what I want most of all is for you to enjoy my books. So if that means I have to delay the release date to make sure you get the best book possible, then I will because quality is my top priority. I'm striving for an enjoyable book with a rock-solid plot, dynamic … [Read more...] about To Delay or Not Delay?
I know these two terms are often used interchangeably, but they're kinda different things... So today I'm gonna talk about Wicca. Wicca is considered a spiritual-based way of worship. It's not exactly a religion since there is no authoritative text (like the Bible) but there are traditions passed down through generations, sometimes borrowing this from there and that from here. In my family, the Wiccan traditions were passed down through the maternal line, as is often the case. The Wise Women in my family can be traced back to Rosamund Sabine. She and George had a daughter named Tamsin, my great grandmother. Tamsin married a man named Sebastian St. James, took his name, and they moved out to a little town called Coral Cove California … [Read more...] about What is Wicca?
