Ebony Fight (The Guard Duet #2) - Cover Reveal's on its way...thanks to the NaNoWriMo challenge.
Keep your fingers crossed and send some hardworking elves my way...and you might have it on your e-readers before Christmas! Otherwise, it will be the beginning of next year. :)

Ebony Fight
Book 2 in The Guard Duet
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

A witch on the run

After allying herself with Lillian’s Ivory Guard, Becca is determined to round up more like-minded demons and Ebonys that could help in their fight against the old system. She knows her actions draw unwelcome attention and that she has to be careful now more than ever before.
So is she foolish to trust Stone, the man who saves her life - and stirs her blood?

A demon out to get her

Stone is as cold and hard as his namesake. When he is ordered to infiltrate a group of rebellious demons to find out how far the do-gooder attitude has spread and to kill their leader, he doesn’t even blink. What he didn’t count on was Becca - the hot whirlwind turning his world and heart upside down. 

…and all hell breaks loose.

NaNoWriMo 2014 - Let's do this!

A friend of mine, Patricia Baxter, recently asked: To NaNo or not to NaNo?
My answer: To NaNo. This year I'm in.

Okay, cool...but let's rewind for a second. What the heck is NaNoWriMO (or NaNo for short) anyway, you might wonder?

It's the National Novel Writing Month...
and challenges participants to write 50.000 words of a new novel between November 1st and November 30th (which means 1.666 words per day). 
The goal is to write and to keep you motivated just switch off whatever little demon usually keeps you from typing the life out of your keyboard - be it your inner editor and perfectionist or simply doubt.
Write! That's the whole point.

And that's why I'm going to participate. I already signed up...and gave my novel a title: Ebony Fight (The Guard Duet #2).

Yes, you read right. Ebony Fight is going to be my NaNoWriMo novel. 
This novel needs to be written and wants to be written. However, after losing the notes I had made for it and moving to the other end of the world, I've had a bit of a trouble with it. Now I hope that NaNoWriMo - and author friends who decided to partcipate as well - will kick my ass and help me to simply focus on writing and to forget about the worrying. 
Emphasis is on hope.
I will keep you posted. ;)

Curiosity piqued? Are your fingers itching to accept that challenge? 
Click here to sign up as well!
...and if you want a writing buddy, you can find me here

Good luck (and typing speed) to all the participants.
But most of all...have fun! :)

Complete Overhaul

Hi everyone....

After sharing some nice giveaways, I have even better news for you - the time has come for the complete overhaul. 

Honest and Brutal Edits will edit ALL of my books!

A big thank you to H and B Edits for working through the old ones (and the new ones to come), so that you, my dear readers, will have an even more enjoyable read ;)
We will start with the paperback version of Ivory Guard - yes, you heard right, Ivory Guard will soon come out in paperback format! - and then we will work through The Patroness novels.

By the way...this is what Ivory Guard (The Guard Duet #1) will look like:

I'm soooo looking forward to holding it in my hands. :)

Those of you who have followed me for longer or read my 'About me' page know that I suffer from itchy feet. The travel bug...wanderlust...Fernweh...whatever you call it...
While in Ireland, surrounded by the beauty of nature, the Merlin Woods and new-found friends, I started to wonder. Maybe I haven't been aching for somewhere...but for a specific place instead. A place, where my heart and soul are at peace, where I am understood and cherished. A place, I would love to call my home.

Leavin' on a jet plane...

...don't know when I'll be back again
Taken during a walk through the Merlin Woods, Ireland

I know I've been rather quiet on here except for sharing giveaways with you. There are several reasons for is that I'm leaving on a jet plane...*sings and dances*

Yes, as you can see, I'm in a very good mood. Rather excited actually. Won't share yet where I'm going. That will be a surprise for a later date. ;) But I will tell you what paperback I'm going to read on my journey:

Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

And then I have about 600 or more ebooks to choose from on my Kindle...hmmm...choices choices...

"My African Dream" Release Day Giveaway

“Damn."..."Wow."..."I did it…again.”
There's no better way to describe that sweet and incredible moment after you hit the publish button. When you slump in your chair and think back...
to the restless nights...
to what you made your characters endure…what they made you endure...
the endless times your hand blindly reached for your cup of coffee...only to find it empty again...'s a moment that needs to be savored - because now the real work begins.
Marketing the book! Letting everyone know there’s a new member in the family.

In my opinion, we indie authors should help each other out whichever way we can regarding that last part. Each new book...every new baby...needs to be celebrated and supported...but even more so if there's a great cause behind it. And so I am happy to share this giveaway with you guys.

Congrats to Mario Saincic on a great new book and the even greater idea behind it: 50% of all author proceeds to rhino conservation organisations!!! 
"...I am going to help in the only way I know how. For the life of the book, I will donate 50% of all author proceeds to various organisations that are actively part of rhino conservation. This is the least I can do to help make sure that future generations are able to see these majestic beasts like I have: roaming free and out of danger."
