I’m very excited to share with you what’s happening in my life! I’ll divide this post into sections so it’s easier to read.

Night of Wonders

First, my latest fantasy novel is coming May 12! And I’m delighted to share the cover with you, which I am so excited about! I just love it!

Back Cover:

Get lost in a world of wonder and imagination!

Anik lives and works inside the magical Library, a place where the books whisper to each other and can come to life.

It’s a dangerous position for the ambitious young man, because he has hidden magic in a society that forbids it for his caste. If discovered, a witch known as a Dayan could remove his powers—and his soul, a fate that soon befalls his master, the Librarian.

For the first time in his life, he gets to meet the maharaja’s twin children, Nyan and Ishana, both near his age and powerful beyond compare. Each intends to compete in a Night of Wonders, a magical competition whose victor receives a chance to rule on the Cabal. Thousands of enchanters from all across India amass to compete, among them Anik’s former best friend, Rajan, who has great plans for India if he succeeds.

Though Rajan warns Anik not to get attached to the twins, he cannot help but fall in love with the beautiful Ishana, but her indulgence of the powers of darkness frighten him. To reach the competition, Anik must accompany the Library hundreds of miles through a haunted wood full of unseen threats. But that’s the least of his problems when something dark and terrible emerges from the depths of the Library.

A creature hated and feared among illusionists.

And he has only himself to blame…

ARC Readers Wanted!

I am looking for advanced copy readers willing to write me a book review on Amazon, Goodreads, and/or their blog! If you want to read a free advanced digital copy of this and provide me with an honest review, please contact me! (E-mail me at femnista@charityplace.com.) Here’s your chance to get absorbed into a world of magic and wonder! It’s perfect if you’ve already read my other fantasy novels, or a great way to try me out if you haven’t yet!

In the meantime, I’d love it if you’d add the book to your Want to Read list at Goodreads. I should have a preorder link up soon!

Author Newsletter

I’ve finally gotten myself organized, and created an author newsletter where you will get e-mail updates (once a month or so, more if there’s a new book launch or free giveaways) about my ongoing projects, writing tips, movie and book reviews or recommendations, upcoming revisions, etc. I intend to occasionally give away my books free to subscribers, if that’s an extra incentive!

Just put in your e-mail address, and you’ll receive a welcome e-mail with a free download to the polished and improved version of Witchy and the Beast, the short story that wound up a contest finalist!

Please make my day and go here to join my mailing list!

I’ve been lax on updating this blog recently due to general business in my life, but things will be changing and I should be more active in the upcoming weeks. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!
