Get Ready for IReadCanadian Day

Jan 26, 2021

World Read Aloud Day is a “celebration of the power of reading aloud to create community, to amplify new stories, and to advocate for literacy as a foundational human right.”

If you’re building your #IReadCanadian day TBR, my books qualify—and so do all of these. (Picture books up through YA!)

As creators of books for young readers, many members of CWILL BC are offering free 10-20 min. virtual readings in support of this wonderful cause.

While I’m more than happy to present to classrooms, library groups or book clubs of all ages, my fiction currently targets ages 14+, so for readings at elementary or middle school groups I can instead present an age-appropriate Canadian children’s book...

Title Reveal

Jan 04, 2021

Good news: I wrapped up the zero draft of the third and final Threads of Dreams book in early December, which means it’s time for a #TitleReveal:

In the city of nightmares, death is far from the end.

Who knew a ghost could get up to so much trouble? Cole’s never been in a worse bind. But her continued existence, such as it is, is far from the only thing at risk.

If she can’t find a way to keep the Mara from being unleashed by the one person she never could have imagined, not only her city, but the whole world will be devoured.

In this thrilling conclusion to the Threads of Dreams trilogy, the spark of revolution is lit—and even a drowned city can burn.

Look for the #CoverReveal in early June & a midsummer launch date. You can also preorder now! or add on Goodreads.

(Preorders default to Dec. 2021 until production delivery dates confirmed.)

Page Turner Awards!

Oct 28, 2020

Update: Results!

Very excited to have won the eBook Award “Book Spotlight” prize and looking forward to working with iRead Book Tours in the coming months to reach new readers!

Press Coverage:

As an aside, an Author Media Kit is available to any members of the press seeking readily-available resources.

Update, 2020-10-02

Super random that this just so happens to fall at the end of another launch week, but I’m honoured and amazed to learn Blind the Eyes has been shortlisted in the eBook Awards 2020 category of the Page Turner Awards alongside some wonderful titles!

Very excited to (remotely) attend the awards ceremony on October 20—though a little bummed it’s a plague year and therefore impossible to pop over to the UK for the party.😢

Congrats to all the shortlisted eBook and Writing award category entrants (check out their stories here!)


Original Post, 2020-08-29:

This is just such an awesome way to cap off launch week: Blind the Eyes is a Page Turner Awards finalist in the 2020 ebook awards category! Always awesome to see my creepy lil murderbabies getting the love~ ^_^;

New Paperbacks!!

Oct 26, 2020

Paperbacks are finally here!! 🎉

Pandemic-induced publishing & shipping woes plus a very stupid mistake on my part 😅 delayed the matching covers by a couple months, but you can finally order the horror-variant covers on Amazon if paper copies are your thing. 👍

Original cover BTE ppb & hardcover will remain available as “special editions” but that artist’s rates keep going up 😭 so the series will continue with these new designs. Additional hardcover editions aren’t currently in the pipeline.

**Shop the new editions on Amazon (other storefronts coming soon): **

Blind the Eyes (book one) & Black the Tides (book 2)
