After a crazy-busy few weeks, I’m now back to regular scheduling. I’m exhausted – the travelling and lack of sleep has brought on a cycle of chronic fatigue. To the point where even if I do anything (like laundry, cleaning, cooking) I need to sit down afterwards, like I’ve just done a workout at the gym. This is how bad it was when I was first diagnosed, and I’d been managing it fairly well. But yes, too much is too much and apparently I now know where my limits are. And, those limits are a two week whirlwind trip, travelling 30 hours straight, running between gates at airports, a hectic GRL schedule, and insomnia. LOL
But at least I know what I’m dealing with this time, so I can better manage it.
On to less depressing issues… 😉
Nova Praetorian’s release has been wonderful. I never had high expectations with this book – historicals aren’t for everyone. I knew that when I was writing it. But a lot of folks have told me they read it (even though it’s a historical) and thoroughly enjoyed it! And that’s all I can ask for. <3
Nova is definitely one of my most favourite books I’ve ever written. I love Quintus and Kaeso so much, and I loved writing the period/era. I think it’s important for writers (or any creative person, tbh) to try new things, to flex creative muscles they might not have tried otherwise.
🖤 On sale for $3.99 for release week only! 🖤
If you love a romance that can stand the test of time, with some action and intrigue thrown in, a little violence and a lot of love and steaminess, you’ll LOVE Nova Praetorian.
Quintus Furius Varus is one of the best lanistas in Rome. Tall and strong in build, fearsome in manner, and sharp of wit, he trains the best gladiators bound for the arenas of Rome. When Senator Servius Augendus seeks personal guards, he attends the Ludus Varus for purchase of the very best. He puts to Quintus an offer he cannot refuse, and Quintus finds himself in Neapolis, contracted as a trainer of guards instead of gladiators.
Kaeso Agorix was taken from his homelands of Iberia and delivered to Rome as a slave. Bought by a senator to be trained as a guard, his fate is handed to the man who would train him. Absent free will, Kaeso knows his life is no longer his own, though he soon realises the gods have favoured him when he learns his new master has a kind heart.
Quintus and Kaeso forge a bond that far exceeds the collar at Kaeso’s neck, and together they discover the senator’s move for promotion has an ulterior motive. Thrown into a world of politics and conspiracy, of keeping enemies close, they move against time to save Rome before traitors and the gods themselves see to their end.
And in doing so, see the dawn of the nova praetorian—the new guard—rise.

I have a cover reveal coming up soon for A Soldier’s Wish. I can’t wait for you guys to read this book. It’s my first full-length Christmas story. I’m not a fan of Christmas so this book was a bit of a challenge. It’s definitely not shmooopy-Christmas-glitter-and-unicorns LOL But there is a Christmas scene in it, so that counts, right? LOL
That’s all for today. I’ll get some GRL pics uploaded soon and share my experience when I have some more time.
Until then… <3
