Year in Review - 2015

My favorite kind of year is when there's a lot of change and growth and this one certainly had that! Thank you, 2015! Also a big thank you to my readers who have continued the Le Fay Series this year!

Spring:


-Started a new picture book and a novel!



Summer: 




Fall: 

-Finished Halo 5, my seventh video game, and also my third novel SWORD!

-Got ducks! Phantom and Paimei. We got them as sweet ducklings. They will produce eggs in the spring! They are super pets! They inspire my connection with nature and I got into gardening more than ever.

-Had an unexpected epiphany that will shape the next chapter in my career.



Winter: 

-Wrapped up my work with Microsoft. It was a great experience working with a big company and franchise. 





-I got a new exciting project that aligns with my vision for my career! Stay tuned for news in the new year!



Until my next post in 2016... Happy New Year!

SWORD - Holiday Recipe and Gift Ideas

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone is having a festive week!

Here are some SWORD themed holiday food and gift ideas! You know what grows in Avalon? Apples! In fact, the name Avalon even means apple. To party up Avalon style, try mixing in finely chopped apples and cinnamon powder into your favorite muffin recipe. Once you place the batter into muffin cups, top with more chopped apples. You can also top it with caramel or marshmallow for more flavor combos. The juiciness of the apples really complements the muffins. 

Here are some Avalon Apple Muffins that I made for the SWORD release party:




Is your friend or family an Arthurian fan? Here are SWORD themed gift ideas:












If you missed HENGE's holiday post last year, it's here. Happy Holidays! I'll be back on the blog next week with presents.

Holiday Charity 2015

I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday week! I'm enjoying my vacation: finally got a Christmas tree, went shopping, and saw the Nutcracker Burlesque!

Every Christmas week I give royalties earned from my books toward charity. Information below:

Sales from CLAN will go to Cancer Research Institute in memory of my grandmother.

Sales from Le Fay Series (HENGE and SWORD) will go to Born This Way Foundation, which focuses on empowering youth and inspiring bravery.






I am also donating a few paperbacks to Women's Prison Book Project. While I was writing SWORD I researched prison and learned how important books are to prisoners. I hope you will also consider donating! 








Thank you and Happy Holidays!

SWORD - Take Destiny

Here's the poster for SWORD!







I wanted to depict an empowering image of Morgan le Fay with this poster. I've been in a "take destiny" mood lately myself. If you missed the poster for Henge, you can see it here.

Want to join Morgan le Fay's journey? Review copy sign up for both books is here.

Reminder: HENGE is on sale this week.

Cheers,
