This week, I got some fantastic news, and I’ve been a little giddy about it, to be honest.
First of all, I received an email from the Midwest Independent Publishing Association (MIPA), notifying me that In The Blood is a finalist for the Midwest Book Award in the category of Fantasy/SciFi/Horror/Paranormal! It’s a huge honor, and I’m excited to attend the Gala in Saint Paul, Minnesota on May 12. Thanks to MIPA for considering my novel. I’m humbled and thrilled. Good luck to all the other finalists!
Secondly, on the same day, the International Vampire Film and Arts Festival in Transylvania in June announced I’m on the literary program as one of their speakers alongside a fantastic slate of others in the genre! What an exciting adventure this will be! The entire festival is truly exciting, and the trip to Romania is a lifelong dream of mine.
I worked on In The Blood and Out For Blood off and on for five years, and along the way I studied my craft and worked on the skills I would need in order to begin my writing career. Now that those books are finally out in the world and the next one is on its way, it’s wonderful to have other people acknowledge my efforts and agree I’m on the right path.
Wherever things go the rest of this year, I’m already starting things off on the right foot, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
“How do I get copies of your books,” you ask? All the links for ebooks and paperbacks are conveniently listed right here.
Autographed Paperbacks and Ebooks of both installments in The Blood Royal Saga can be ordered directly from Eagle Heights Press.
If you’ve read either or both of the books, I’d love it if you’d take a moment to post a review on Goodreads or Amazon. Reviews help me learn and improve, and they also help other readers find the series as well.
Also, sign up for my newsletter if you haven’t done so yet. I promise no spam. Just updates on books and events.
Trial By Blood, Book Three of The Blood Royal Saga is set for release in July! I’ll be announcing the exact date and posting presale links soon!
