September brings back-to-school and college applications here (my baby is a senior, how did that happen? But at least my second baby is only a sophomore.) And writing, writing, writing. I’m also teaching a class for RWA University on Reinvention, something I know a few things about, right? (Alesia, Alyssa, Lucy, Mom…)
In writing news:
Happy Dark and Deadly news: if you didn’t get it the first time around, when it was 99 cents, it’s going on sale for a very limited time! From September 15 to October 14, D&D will be 99 cents again, so mark your calendar and tell your friends. Readers LOVED this collection, and it’s a great way to sample new authors for less than a dollar.
If you knew me as Alesia Holliday, you know I wrote award-winning romantic comedy! Stay tuned for news of great sale prices on those early books!
And I have to thank you again!! You loved Alejandro’s Sorceress, my funny, sexy novella that’s loosely part of the Warriors of Poseidon series, as much as I loved writing it so (drum roll, please!) I have news: I’m going to write a series about the Cardinal Witches! The first book will be another crossover with the Warriors of Poseidon series and will be called Denal’s Enchantress. Look for more news in 2015!!
And a NEW RELEASE!!! I’ve published a quirky collection of paranormal romance short stories, titled RANDOM, and it’s now available on all e-book sites! (Print will be coming later this year.) Some are funny, some are poignant; some appeared in collections, some didn't, but all of them are fun little story bites that I thought I’d finally share. I hope Random brings you a smile over your lunch hour or coffee break. For an excerpt, details, and buying links, see my RANDOM page here.
International Kindle readers: You’ve asked and they’re finally here! The entire Warriors of Poseidon series is now available on Kindle. Please see your individual country sites for links. Thanks!

And, on a very important note, I am finally walking into the sunshine myself, after battling depression all my life. I wrote about it here. My goal now is to smash through the stigma associated with this horrible illness, so people are not afraid to ask for help, like I was for far too long. If you or anyone you love suffers from depression, please get help. Please. We all deserve to live in the light of day, instead of in that damn black pit.
All my best,
