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!

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."
"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?"
"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.”
