The Rise of the Emoryk is out!

 She's here! I will dub her ROTE! The second book in The Kenryk Series is finally here. It was released in August 2022. You're probably wondering, 'Girl, that was ages ago? What is with the old post?'. Well. because this book took my blood, sweat and tears to make.  This book was never meant to happen. The Avaris was supposed to be a standalone, but Korin and the others refused to let me desert them. So, I wrote this one, way back in 2016. I don't know how many revisions to this book I have made. I have never been satisfied with it, but I think that's just that inner critic in me.  Anyway, I had challenges with this book right from the beginning! The funds to get it out were depleted before I could even print the paperbacks. Former high schoolmates rallied around me and raised enough funds for me to print the book. I managed to print 100.  Silly me, I thought that was it. Nope, I now had to print The Avaris because people who hadn't read it and saw ROTE want

I have a new cover...ish!

I published my book in August 2021. I received a few sales and then...well...not so many sales. The book  trailer approach did a lot towards marketing the book, but something was missing. Mmmm. Maybe an updated book cover? Will that work? Yes? No? I went with the former! And lo and behold! A new cover. I am keen on your opinion of the new-ish cover.  I didn't want to deviate too much from its original branding, but it was missing something. So with the help of Nerisha from  NDesigns , I updated the look of my cover.  As I am still in a brace for a sprained wrist, book 2 is trudging along slowly. However, the fourth draft is done, so on to the final draft. The question remains- will Amari choose to be a Sage Warrior or an Avaris. If you read the first book The Kenryk Series: The Avaris (available on all online platforms in ebook format and on Amazon in ebook and paperback- you know I was going to plug this,  Kobo , Barnes and Noble , Apple , Tolino , Vivlio , and Overdrive to name 

I have a book trailer! Whaaaaat????

It took me 2000 years to learn there was such a thing as a book trailer- pardon the hyperbolic declaration. I thought those things were for movies. It turns out- nope- you too can have a book trailer. You're getting a trailer, you're getting a trailer! Everybody gets a trailer!!!! All right, fine! I got too caught up there for a second. Ahem. Where was I? Oh, yes. I have a book trailer. After a month of just 2 sales, I had to do something. And I thought? A book trailer? Why not? I wanted to study filming when I was young. Uh, so obviously, this will not be competing for an Oscar for its cinematography. However, I do believe it will make you buy the book. Go on, click the link  The Kenryk Series  and buy the book.  Anyway, without further ado, behold! The Kenryk Series trailer!!!!  P.S.
