Forbidden Destiny

Hey guys,

I'm popping in for a brief update before I head off to write more. If you've been following me on Facebook, you know that I participated in the #nanowrimo during the last month. I did reach the 50,000-word mark several days before the end of the event, which is a HUGE accomplishment for me. I'm super excited about that. I choose to devote the entire month of November to developing the storyline for my Paranormal Romance book, Forbidden Destiny. This is full of action, magic, and fun. 

At this time, I'm working with a cover artist for the complete wrap for this novel and I'll be announcing the cover reveal date soon. It's going to be epic!!

****

For those of you who don't know the story here's the blurb:

We dream of our future and what we want to be when we grow up. These dreams are who we come to be: unless our destiny has other plans. Sophie Hathorn stumbled upon her destiny through her love of books. She learns she's part of a legacy of the most powerful witches, but with a twist. She's also part Wizard, which makes her the first and only Hybrid.

Struggling with her newly found life, Sophie must prepare and train for the biggest fight of her life. Eros, a Shapeshifter, and Succubus plan to overtake Sophie's hometown and call it his own. He's created an army of Cambion to help him fight. In the midst of the threat, the Wizard's Council comes into town to help Sophie prepare for the fight of her life when she finds herself romantically attracted to Mason; the son of the most powerful Wizard. However, the law has been set for centuries by the Goddess, Pax that no witch or wizard shall be involved romantically.

Not only is Sophie pressured to become the best Hybrid, but she's also fighting the internal battle of the feelings she has for Mason. Will she be able to handle the physical and emotional battle she's about to face or will she fall short?

****

Now let's talk a bit more about the background of this story....

The entire book is based out of a small Pennsylvania town I used to reside in called, Fairchance. (This is where I lived when I started writing this story in 2012) This one is a bit different than what you're used to when it comes to witches, wizards, and the underworld. In Forbidden, each magical individual has their own race. Meaning there is a male and female when it comes to each. By the centuries-old law, the races are not allowed to cross. However, Sophie's parents broke that law and Sophie was born. She's the only Hybrid known in the history of the paranormal world. This book is a bit out of my normal and I'm having fun writing it. 

I'll jump back in at a later time and give you updates on this book and the special dates that go along with writing and releasing a new book. Therefore, if you're a paranormal romance reader, this one is for you!! I really hope you enjoy it as much as I am while I am writing it. 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the update. 
Have a wonderful weekend.
God Bless

The Gracious Wife #Release Info

Hey, Readers,
The moment you have been waiting for 
has FINALLY arrived.

I'm here to tell you that 
The Gracious Wife

will be AVAILABLE for your reading pleasure on...




Cover by Emcat Designs
Book Description:

Marriage can be surreal, unpredictable, and enticing all at the same time. We find and fall in love with our best friend, and all of our dreams seem to be coming true. We've heard of the princess being rescued by her prince and they ride off into the sunset to live happily ever after. Unfortunately, this isn't how marriage is in real life, especially when you're trying to be what God has called you to be. Marriage is two self-centered individuals coming together to live as one.

Given all the foes and dips that may come with marriage, this book gives the basic understanding of marriage the way God intended and not as the way fairy tales has made it out to be. It's meant to help wives be more self-sacrificial toward their husband by acting in grace, love, and forgiveness. In this journey with our best friends, we can work toward being more humbling and giving. It takes more than love alone for a great marriage. The basis of a great marriage starts with a strong spiritual foundation, a strong friendship which grew into a strong romance, along with tons of work, sacrifices, and submission by both partners to make it last.

This book provides Rae-Beth's opinion with communication, getting through the tough times, fair fighting, and keeping God the center of the marriage. Dive in and see marriage from one wife's perspective.

The Gracious Wife: COMING SOON

Hey Readers,

I wanted to give you all an update on the progress with
The Gracious Wife.

I am currently revising a few chapters and waiting for a 
few beta readers to submit their thoughts and opinions. While they're taking the time
to help me out, I have been plotting/writing a few other books.

The feedback is slowly coming back and I'm plotting a few additives to the book, which
I believe will only empower this book more for YOU!

I have ARC Sign Ups open now to those who are in my fan group.
*If you're not in the group, you can apply here.* 

As I'm finishing up the bits and pieces left before sending it to my editor, I'll
be announcing when it'll be released!! 

Are you looking forward to this book? If so, help spread the word by sharing the news of The Gracious Wife is coming SOON! This is the BEST way to help me right now.

Update with the Author

Hey guys,

I wanted to post a small message to let you all know what's going on here with my books and writing. I know that it seems like it's been forever since I released another book, but I promise I am working hard on several books. Each one of these books is in different genre however, they're still packed full of inspiration and heartfelt.

****

The Gracious Wife: Being Her Husband's Crown has had most of my attention. This book is aimed at wives who want to live a life as a gracious wife. In this small book, I give you my take on marriage and making God at its center. I'm in the process of adding in a few more things that I feel are important to talk about. I've done one major revision on it. Once I'm complete with the additions, I'll do another read through.  


Rainbow Story is one I know a lot of my readers are waiting for. This one is about my life with my rainbow baby. However, things haven't gone the way I had planned for this one. I wanted to keep a daily journal to record my feelings and thoughts during the pregnancy/birth of my rainbow son, however life got me really messed up at the time. So I didn't get to do this. Therefore, I'll be writing this book all from memory. 

I have decided that I won't be publishing the book based upon the paranormal aspects. I started writing this book in 2012 before I had given my life to Christ. At this time, I'm having an internal battle because I'm not sure if this would be a book a Christian would be writing. I'm so torn on this because I put three years of work into it. I've been praying to God for my answers but haven't gotten them yet. Once I do I'll make the final decision on the fate of this book. (I'm sorry to those of you who were looking forward to this book.)

I'm working on a book dedicated to my grandmother. She passed away before I was born at the age of 26 from breast cancer. This will be one emotional read!!!

Keep checking back here or on my website for news, events, and inspiration! 
Thanks for reading.
God Bless
