Ilyon & Acktar Blog Tour Wrap Up


Did everyone enjoy the tour? Tricia and I sure did! Now I wish we had books releasing together all the time! Just . . . not around the holidays again. I think both Tricia and I just want to crawl into bed for a solid month of doing nothing. Right, Tricia? Anyway, if you missed any part of the tour, you can find the links below. My favorite part was the character chats! While it was a lot of work, it was amazingly fun seeing how my characters and Tricia’s interacted with each other. I’m still laughing over Kaden and Martyn’s interaction at the end of the final chat yesterday. And I think Kaden, Talas, and Brandi are Ilyon and Acktar’s new three musketeers. Can you imagine the misadventures they would have if left alone together for an extended period of time?

Let me just say, if you have not read Tricia’s books yet, DO IT. *whistles innocently as she drags readers to Amazon and pushes them toward the Buy Now button* Basically, Tricia’s books give me a taste of my own medicine. They’re exciting, heart-wrenching, and just plain awesome. And there’s Leith. If you love Jace, you’ll love Leith. So go do it. You know you want to. *smiles angelically*

The end is coming…

As is my usual tradition at the end of my blog tours, today I am officially announcing the title of the final book of Ilyon Chronicles! Can you believe there is only one left?!


For three years, the Resistance has suffered under oppression, first from Emperor Daican, and then from his daughter. Now it is time to fight back.


As you can tell, red is the theme of this book. What do you hope will happen in Daican’s Heir? What are you most excited for? I don’t have a release date for the book since I’m still writing it (you can see my progress meter in my sidebar), but I did set up my Pinterest board for it with some teaser images. ;)

Something new…

So, two years ago, I did something completely unexpected. I participated in NaNoWriMo for the very first time writing a contemporary romance novel, which is titled No Chance Meeting. Yeah, I always said I couldn’t write contemporary romance to save my life, but what do you know? It actually happened. And it actually went very well. So well that it spawned a series. Ahhh! I first posted about No Chance Meeting when I was writing it. With the book, I won my very first NaNoWriMo and went on to finish the story fairly quickly afterward.

Of course, once it was finished, I started thinking about publication. NCM is quite a departure from my usual genre, so I decided I am going to publish it under a slightly different pen name. A lot of you probably know this already from Facebook updates, but for those who don’t, said pen name is Jaye Elliot.

I’m hoping to publish No Chance Meeting sometime this spring. So today, I am officially launching my new website AND revealing the cover for NCM! Tada!

NCM is the first in what I plan to be a three book series, No Chance Romance. Though they are connected, each one has different protagonists and can be read as standalones. Each of my female protagonists has a different creative professional—an artist, a musician, and a writer (yay!)—while each of the male protagonists is former military. I’m super excited about it and can’t wait to share. Below you can find all the links to my new website and social media accounts if you would like to follow this new writing adventure of mine.

So, what do you think of this interesting new direction? Don’t panic! I won’t quit writing Spec Fic any time soon! No worries there. I have a a huge secret Pinterest board of nearly a dozen ideas for future adventure stories that I’m sure will only grow with time.

Etania's Worth Blog Tour—Book Spotlight

Today I am spotlighting a new book by M.H. Elrich!


About Etania's Worth:

Etania's new apprenticeship as a librarian is shattered when she fends off an attacker with a power, or Neuma, she didn't know she had-the ability to disable evil beings. When her father discovers Etania's gift, he wants to use her as a weapon to stop a new threat rising over Tamnarae. Etania doesn't want to be her father's new weapon and wonders if that really is the purpose of her Neuma. Yet, the death of a loved one brings the struggle closer to home, forcing Etania on a journey to embrace her newfound power before it's too late.

About the Author:

18163040M.H. Elrich is a writer, reader, teacher and editor who wears too many hats. This means she consumes coffee and tea with a mug that reads "Wait until I've drained the cup." In her free time (if she has any), she watches T.V. with her husband, rides horses, and travels to places with lots of trees. She received her B.A. in English at a local university where they handed her a paper certificate that said she could write term papers the night before and still pass. She was published in The Write Word, Orpheus, and Short Fiction Break. She currently resides in a part of California where "perfect" weather comes with a layer of smog.

Book Quote:

” ‘Neuma? I don’t have Neuma. Besides, Tamnarae doesn’t need to be saved, we’ve been at peace for a hundred years.’

‘Everyone needs to be saved.’ Melchizidek asserted.”
