Dagger’s Sleep & Dissociate Blog Tour

Blog Tour Header

Today on my blog I’m spotlighting two new books—Dagger’s Sleep by Tricia Mingerink (one of my favorite authors, which many of you know) and Dissociate by Sarah Addison-Fox!

Dagger's Sleep Cover

About Dagger’s Sleep

A prince cursed to sleep.

A princess destined to wake him.

A kingdom determined to stop them.

High Prince Alexander has been cursed to a sleep like unto death, a curse that will end the line of the high kings and send the Seven Kingdoms of Tallahatchia into chaos. With his manservant to carry his luggage and his own superior intelligence to aid him, Alex sets off to find one of the Fae and end his curse one way or another.

A hundred years later, Princess Rosanna learns she is the princess destined by the Highest King to wake the legendary sleeping prince. With the help of the mysterious Daemyn Rand, can she find the courage to finish the quest as Tallahatchia wavers on the edge of war?

One curse connects them. A hundred years separate them. From the rushing rivers of Tallahatchia’s mountains to the hall of the Highest King himself, their quests will demand sacrifices neither of them could imagine.

Dagger’s Sleep is available for preorder on Amazon Kindle.

Dissociate Cover

About Dissociate

Freedom begins with finding the truth.

Amidst the turmoil caused by Smyth’s arrest, Celeste is stuck in limbo, stripped of her citizenship, with no choice but to flee to a peaceful Kyraenean hideaway with the tumultuous Amaya Mason.

When bounty hunters threaten the local orphanage, Celeste and Amaya must work together and fight. Even if it means risking what they cherish the most.

His plans in tatters, his career in jeopardy, Mick Haynes is forced to leave Kyraenea with the enigmatic Torrance Kyle, the agent he still can’t trust.

Torrance is good at lying, and even better at hiding his pain, but is he strong enough to deal with the consequences of betraying his own father?

Can Celeste accept the truth, accept her place in the Haynes family or will lies chain her to the past and destroy her chance at a new life?

Dissociate is available for sale on Amazon here. The first two books in the series Disowned and Dissemble are also available on Amazon.

T-Shirts and Hoodies and Mugs, oh my!

I wanted to share a quick update about my different business endeavors. After all, writing, unfortunately, doesn’t pay all of my bills. As most of you know, I’ve been selling jewelry on Etsy for a number of years now. In the last year, I’ve started expanding to clothing and other accessories. As my main Etsy shop grew, I’ve started creating new, specialized shops. I’ve worked really hard in the last couple of months to streamline and expand these shops. What started out as one shop with the name JayeLKnight is now five shops! Woohoo! LOTS of work though. :P

I’ve just changed the name of that original shop to Nerd Cat Creations. Fandom inspired jewelry was always a big hit, and now I’m focusing on fandom, geekdom, and nerdom gifts with that shop and, considering my love for cats, the name seemed appropriete. :)

Besides my Etsy shops, I also have shirts available on Amazon! This includes free shipping for anyone with prime. However, if a design doesn’t sell within the first 90 days, Amazon takes it down. So if you see something you want, make sure to get it! Otherwise check my Etsy shops where they will be available all the time.

To see any of my shops, just click the shop banners below. The amazon links are just below each banner.

And if you are interested in Ilyon Chronicles merchandise, I have an Etsy shop just for the series! You can even order the books at the same time!
