Special Collection Announcement & Cover Reveal Sign-Up

I'm so very excited to finally announce the "secret project" I was invited to participate in. Join over 20 bestselling YA authors as we share NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED stories that take you behind the curtain and reveal what happens when good girls go wild! 

Coming February 11th:

LOSING IT: A Collection of V-Cards

- - - - - -

These will be scenes--all based on previously published YA novels--that pick up where we so tortuously left off when our YA novel's love scene ended, was interrupted, or happened "off screen." Now, take a look at what went on after we faded to black.

A hot collection requires a hot cover and we've got one designed by KILA Designs.

The Sign-Up form is now up and we'd love to have book bloggers join in the January 14th Cover Reveal sign-up and help show off this exclusive collection.

NaNo 2014

It's that time again...

November Novel Writing Month ~ OR ~ NaNoWriMo

50,000 words in 30 days

For this year's challenge I'm continuing to work on my current work in progress,
HANDLER, a NA/Dystopian stand-alone.


Our world was perfect––until we broke the law: Don't go out at night.

Utopian by day, dystopian by night; this is the world I recently discovered. I now struggle with the fact that our whole society has been based on a lie. There's only one way to change it––conquer the darkness we've all been raised to fear.

Live the lie; fight to the death; become a Handler. It's the only way.

. . . . .

Hopefully, I'll be a NaNo winner and have this baby off to the editor by early December.

Wish me luck! :)

Welcome to the Read 'Em & REAP Blog Hop!!

Find out what draws us ~Grim~ Authors to the write about the reapers we love, and enter to win a bunch of great prizes along the way!

Let's get started, shall we...

1.  What first piqued your interest in writing about reapers?

My book, RAVEN'S BREATH, was inspired by my cover designer, Regina Wamba.
The pre-made she had available (which is now the front of Raven's Breath) spoke to
me and I instantly knew I wanted to write about a Grim Reaper who could suck the
life from you as part of her job. (The souls resemble the inky wisps on the cover.)

2.       What makes your reapers different?

Besides the fact that Raven is the first FEMALE grim reaper in history, it's the extra
abilities she possesses that not only allow her to siphon the life from you, but also
save you, given the right circumstances.

3.        Are your reapers Heroes or Villains?

Heroes all the way! Well, except that one...

The Women of Purgatory:  A new adult Urban Fantasy series, featuring three bad-ass women who leave their mark on Heaven, Purgatory, and Hell.

Will she be your Grim Reaper or your Saving Grace?

Raven can breathe life into you, or siphon the life from you...the choice is yours. 

They say your life flashes before your eyes when you die. But what you didn't know...your last thoughts determine whether Raven becomes your grim reaper or your saving grace.

Death has a sinister plan, but his favorite female reaper has been given a new power that will combat his secret mission. The only issue...she hasn't discovered it yet.

Will Raven put the pieces together in time, or will Purgatory be destroyed forever?

Halloween Flash Fiction...Presented by the Coastal Magic Convention

I'm so excited to be attending the Coastal Magic Convention in Daytona Beach , FL, coming up in February 2015, and was THRILLED to get the invite to participate in the Halloween Flash Fiction event!!!

The attending authors were given picture prompts that we had to write a short and "creepy" story based on.

Here's my prompt:

While I'm not sure if my story is "creepy" enough, I will be using it as a scene in my upcoming book, Queen of The Witches, which I thought was pretty darn appropriate for Halloween! LOL

So...without further ado, click HERE to be linked to my Flash Fiction story! Happy reading and Happy Halloween! I hope you all have a blessed Samhain!!

Penned Con Recap

To say Penned Con was a positive event for me, is somewhat of an understatement. I had such a great time meeting new authors and of course, YOU, the readers!!!

For a quick recap, I've compiled a brief synopsis of what I learn at Penned Con:

1.) I'm a huge fan of cool ass people and I had the pleasure of meeting a TON of them.

2.) I was so thankful to the authors who allowed me into their bubbles and were genuine and gracious! There are those moments where you want to make new connections but are never sure how you'll be received, and thankfully, every one of the ladies with whom I connected with were true gems!

3.) To all the readers who came to see me and the new fans and friends I made...THANK YOU doesn't seem like enough. I never imagined that I'd actually sell out of any books or meet so many people with whom I'd truly have a connection with. I'm so humbled by your support! 

4.) Last but not least, it's now a proven fact that Amy and Rick Miles h
ave their shit together! I am so grateful to have been a part of this amazing event that raised over $11k for Action for Autism, and I can't wait to return next year! And yes... I already have my table! ;)

Hope to see you back in St. Louis, July 23-25, 2015!

To claim her destiny, Aryiah must die...but dying's just the beginning.

After waking from a dream where all she remembers is the word Wicca, Aryiah is determined to re-educate herself with this magical religion of her youth.

When a gorgeous man materializes in her living room, vampires start knocking on her door, and books literally start to glow, she soon realizes this dream was just the beginning of a nightmare. 

Aryiah has been triggered to become one of The Witches, a coven charged with protecting the citizens of Ovialell with their magick and healing abilities. The only catch? In order to take her place with The Witches, Aryiah will have to die.

Big News

It's Official!!!

I've done lost my mind...

I have to apologize for my extended absence since Raven's Breath release, but my brain has been churning and I've had to make a lot of changes to my upcoming release schedule because of it.

As some of you may know, my next book scheduled to release is Queen of The Witches, Ovialell book #2, however, after introducing Raven to the world, I received a lot of feedback stating that people would LOVE to see more of Raven and her story. So, after multiple brainstorming meetings with Sharon from ALP, and looking at what other books I had coming up, a very interesting thing started to happen.

Basically, Dark Abigail strolled in, surrounded by fog and gathering tree branches and said, "This is where I belong!"

So...with a little bit of magic from my cover artist, Emma Michaels, Dark Abigail will now be book #2 in The Women of Purgatory series. 

Oh, but wait! That's not all!!!

Holli, stomped in next and demanded that she get her own book as well, so that's right...there will be three total. So let's recap...


The Women of Purgatory Trilogy:

Raven's Breath ~ Book #1 (Available now)

Dark Abigail ~ Book #2 (Coming soon)


Holli's Hellfire ~ Book #3 (Coming soon)

I hope you're all as excited as I'm am for some bad-ass women to put their mark on Heaven, Purgatory, and Hell.

As a side note, Queen of The Witches is still being worked on, as well as my contemporary romance series, The Flower Girls trilogy. So, if at any point you think to yourself, "I wonder what happened to Tish Thawer?"...This pretty much sums it up! :)

Raven's Breath New Release Date

**Official Announcement**

Hey guys! I'm here to report that the Raven's Breath official release date has been bumped to April 15, 2014, which is only 18 days away!

My intended release date was for 3/31/14, however, Spring Break arrived, and I ran away with the kids to spend some much needed time at the beach! :D

The team at Amber Leaf Publishing always puts family first, and in this case, there was no exception. I'm so grateful to have such an amazing group of people to work with, who always support me and understand the life of a busy mom.

In the mean time, here is a short teaser to hold you over.

Also, look for another giveaway soon, as I'll be offering up multiple signed paperbacks to win.

Thanks for your patience, and continued support!

~ Excerpt ~

Death's firm gripped settled on my arm. His jaw clenched, then he and Holli disappeared. Wow. Guess I won't be getting an answer.
I shook my head and took to the sky, finally heading home for the night. As I neared my apartment, I saw Garrett rushing up to the main door of my building. I adjusted my trajectory and touched down gently behind him.
"Hey! Fancy meeting you here."
"Actually, it's not fancy at all.” His intensity shook me. “I need to talk to you."
"What's wrong?"
"Let's get inside." He ushered me into the building and up the stairs to my apartment with the urgency of an undercover spy on a mission.
I flipped the lock. He unceremoniously pushed me inside then slammed the door, spun me around, and pressed my back against it.
"What are you doing?" I demanded.
“I need to check for something." He brushed the hair away from my ears then turned my head from side to side. This is awkward. "Garrett, seriously, what the hell is this about?"
"Not Hell."
"Hold still." The edge of panic in his voice had my heart racing. He continued to run his thumb over the smooth skin behind my ears and down each side of my neck. "Oh my god, he was right," Garrett breathed.
I'd had enough. I pushed him off with enough force to carry him away from me. "What are you talking about?"
"You've been marked, Raven."
I stared at Garrett like he was an idiot, but it was I who was completely clueless. "Marked? By what? What do you mean?"
"I mean..." He grabbed my arm and pulled me to the mirror hanging next to the front door.
"...Heaven has marked you.”
