Sinking at Sudden Denouement

I’m beyond humbled to be a part of this amazing group of writers. Go show them some love.

I’m drowning in an infinite ocean, salted by my tears. Trapped in this dark world, illuminated only by the moon’s soft glow, I cry, and I beg for an end to my suffering. For salvation. A reprieve. But the tide keeps pulling me away. No matter how hard I kick, or thrash in those crashing waters, I gain no purchase. With the last of my strength, I pull my head above the surface and gulp a desperate breath into my burning lungs, breathing out words in a whisper even I can’t hear, “Save me.” And then those darkened waters pull me under for the last time.

Masks at Sudden Denouement

I’m so pleased to see this. I’ve been welcomed with open arms.

I’m not fooled by that mask of delicious perfection covering false pretenses, the façade of beauty with that devilish intention beneath. Your eyes give you away, like a wolf masquerading around in an innocent, irresistible skin. But I know better. You’re ready to devour every last bit of liquid fire coursing through my veins, leaving behind a scorched landscape, only to pour it all back into me. And as I bear the brand of your name across my steaming bones, every inch of my skin will pulse like a drum with every pound of my heart, begging for more. And I can’t bring myself to care.

Listen Cover Reveal

listen

“When vampires Liam and Jon go missing, it’s up to Aisling Green and her friends to find them, but doing so and surviving what awaits won’t be easy.”
Coming October 3rd!

Earthen Witch Novels

The Earthen Witch Novels are an adult urban fantasy romance series featuring Earthen witch Aisling Green and witch Connor Jennings, written from Aisling’s perspective. The world is not an easy place, especially for these two. And they’re going to have to fight many battles before they can reach their happily ever after.

Listen, Book Three

Battling against things she cannot fight isn’t something Earthen witch Aisling Green is used to, but she must act quickly and outsmart the one that wants her dead and save the lives of her friends before it’s too late.

As they follow the trail, they rescue a most unlikely person, and uncover a deeper, more sinister plot. With the lives of the two vampires on the line, they must fight for their lives, try to rescue their friends, and stop the evil plans. In the face of so much danger and uncertainty, they are forced to go to war and make a discovery that will change everything. The question then becomes at what price will they be forced to pay to survive?

I’m pleased to reveal the cover for Listen! I want to thank Kristyn McQuiggan of Drop Dead Designs (and @drop.dead.design) for her assistance. I couldn’t have done this without her.

Home – Review

My friend F-K from fkregieblog came back with another glowing review. This time for Home, my third novel. I’m on cloud nine that the love is still strong for the series as a whole. But more than that, the depth of understanding that F-K shows in the underlying themes is almost uncanny.

Here’s the reviews for Just Breathe, Focus, Zoe, and Dream Spell. Read on for an in-depth review.

Author’s note: there are spoilers in this review.

Any writing must explain itself or you wonder what the reason was for writing it. As you read any writing, it is only natural therefore that you try to find answers to the questions in your head (raised by what you are reading) – fictional works included. As such, as I read Sarah Doughty’s Home several questions were bounding around in my head: How can someone with a crisis of identity and a sense of displacement become a home for restless souls?Is race and kind only a human construct; can animals be racist – towards humans?What is the true meaning of home? These questions, and the answers Doughty provides to them will form the premise of my review of Sarah Doughty’s Home.

Home is the gripping tale of the becoming of Angela Ines Williams, a young African-American Librarian and Guardian…

Focus – Review

My friend F-K from fkregieblog came back with another glowing review. This time for Focus, my Second novel. I’m on cloud nine that the love is still strong for the main series. But more than that, the depth of understanding that F-K shows in the underlying themes is almost uncanny.

Here’s the reviews for Just Breathe, Zoe, and Dream Spell. Read on for an in-depth review.

Focus

fkregieblog

Author’s note: there are spoilers in this review.

In Sarah Doughty’s Focus all hell is (metaphorically and literally) let loose. This is not your typical novel, due mainly to how the story is told – it is nobody’s tale as several narrators tell it. This is not your typical novel because the first-person (omniscient) narrators have more than one level of point-of-view (POV) in the observation of self and situations. This is not your typical novel because Sarah Doughty is more than a narrator, she is a great storyteller – period. Usually, narration is a clinical and dry way of stating a series of events – a flow of events connected to a theme. Usually, narration is a method and means of constructing the events of a story into a plot, which concerns itself with the sequence of the events, the medium on which they are told, and the way…

Just Breathe – Review

My friend F-K from fkregieblog came back with another glowing review. This time for Just Breathe, my first novel. I’m on cloud nine that the love has continued into the main series.

final cover

I treated Sarah Doughty’s Just Breathe the way I treat any book that holds my fascination – if books could speak the Holy Bible and Webster’s Advanced Dictionary wouldn’t want me near them. First, I read the novel three times, put it down for a couple of days, returned to it, reread it, put it down again, and returned to it today, reread it, and now I am ready to review it. I do this when I want to carry a book around in my head, as a source of reference – this novel is that good. Plus, after what I have put it through in one week I didn’t feel the book wanted me near it – I feel Sarah Doughty’s novel needs to just breathe.

What fascinates me about the novel is Doughty’s knowledge of witches. Through my second reading I realized this has to be some sort…
