THE END IS COMING...

Yes, it took FOREVER.

But The End is finally coming.

Just in time for Xmas!

I'm going to keep this short because there's so much to do to make sure this release goes well, but I want to start with how sorry I am that it's taken this long. Honestly, I'd started to lose hope myself. Everything seemed stacked against this book ever being done.

Deadly Captive was one of those nightmare books, haunting me day and night until I got the words on the page. And even then, there's something about the book that messes with me. But when it was published and got such intense reactions, I felt like there were others out there that needed to slip into the darkness as much as I did. 

Collateral Damage came out awhile after. These weren't stories I could dive into whenever I wanted to. They were like...like welcoming the nightmare. Facing the demons in your mind, knowing the journey will be worth it, but needing to overcome your fears before you can take that first step.

Which is why, when the publisher closed and I went through one of the worst battles of my career to get the money owed for these books, it all became too much. The frustration and hurt and struggle added up to me wanting nothing to do with the books. I couldn't open myself up to everything that came with them, no matter how much I tried. Top that up with angry emails as time went on and even the muse shut down. I went months trying to make the story happen.

That's not how this works. Not for me anyway.

But finally, when I least expected it, the words started to flow. I didn't want to add pressure and risk all my progress, so I kept quiet about it, only hinting once when I saw the end in sight.

Now I can finally give you a release date.

And I hope you'll love this story as much as I do, because it's been a challenge. But I think it was worth the wait. :)

Comments are hugs and shares are kisses! I can't wait for you all to read this! Yeah, I know the release day is weird, but it seemed fitting! lol

Can love conquer all? Release day and what this book means to me...

There's something one of the heroes, Balthazar, says in his narrative in Inversion that really speaks to me. Some of you might be thinking "Umm, YOU wrote that."

Yeah...kinda. Not with my brain, with his. Which probably doesn't make any sense unless you get how real the characters are to me.

Either way, it's this:

Love didn’t conquer all, not on its own. Like any conqueror, love needed soldiers, ready to fight. Those soldiers were compassion, respect, trust, and devotion. With faith taking up the rearguard when the others faltered.
 And maybe that’s all he was missing. The one thing no one else could give him. The one thing he had to find for himself.
Faith.
Which he would find once he’d figured out how to improve the odds. As nice as it was to believe things would work out for the best, he wasn’t one to sit back and let the cards fall where they may.
He always made sure his soldiers were prepared for battle.

Inversion has a character who faces several challenges and as I began his story I felt...very protective. Sure, authors love our characters, and we want them to be happyafter we've put them through hellbut some of them touch a little closer to home.

I can't tell you too much without spoiling the book, and it's just come out, but let's just say I have personal reasons for wanting to see a character who doesn't fit in the typical mold to find love. And not the kind of love that makes you blind. The kind that sees each and every thing about you that makes you different. The kind that helps you see your own strengths, that admits life won't be easy, but it will be worth every moment.

Both together and because you've got so much to give, now and in the future.

That said, I hope you all enjoy reading this book that put me through the wringer! lol Those of you who've read my work before know I don't hold anything back. And that ain't gonna change anytime soon.

Or ever. :)


In Balthazar ‘Ballz’ Bornstein’s professional opinion, every member of the metalcore band, Winter’s Wrath, needs therapy. After years as an army psychologist, the security guard has the training, but working with soldiers was much different from managing men under the spotlight of the music world. Still, he’s making progress. Except for Connor Phelan. 

Connor acts like a carefree jock, but Balthazar has glimpsed his inner pain and growing isolation from his bandmates. The young man is far too appealing and his lust for life, his playfulness, and his mischievous smile bring out the Dom in Balthazar. The security guard struggles to keep his job and his desires separate, but he’s losing the fight. More so when competition shows up—Annette Paige, the wild, headstrong backup vocalist of another band.

When a key member is injured, the two bands are forced to work together, but clashing egos, animosity, and passions jeopardize the entire European tour. The best way to keep the steady rhythm is to get the band members to behave professionally. It’s not looking good, but Balthazar will do his best to keep the boys in line. Maybe a curfew will work. There’s also been the suggestion of a leash, but the man he most wants to collar has already been caged by Annette. The Dom in him wonders if he could bring them both to heel.

One word could bring them together. Or tear them apart. A word none of them can ever say… Mine.
