New Cover for IN THE SHADOWS (and a sneak peek!)

Soooooooo I have a brand spanking new cover for In the Shadows! 
White Rabbit Designs & Creations did an amazing job and Alivia has been wonderful to work with so far. I highly recommend her.
 
I know I'm completely bias but I absolutely love it and I hope you do too! Let me know what you think!
 


Mia Carrington is struggling to come to terms with the fact that she killed a man, while trying to find a balance between her role as the Princess of the Light Elves and attempting to lead the life of a normal human teenager.

Too bad her dual life doesn't come with an instruction manual.

Just when she thinks that fate can't throw anything else at her, the Duchess Isobel is found on the brink of death and Mia’s boyfriend Jacoby is the only suspect.

Despite the suspicion surrounding him, Mia is sure of the innocence of the boy she loves and she is determined to prove it no matter the risk.

The problem is, the one thing that can save Isobel and clear Jacoby can only be found in the shadows of the Underworld.

Oh boy.
 
Official Release Date TBA soon (very soon)
 
 
AND just for fun, here is a little sneak peek for your reading pleasure. Now of course the wording might change a little between now and publication because my editor hasn't even laid eyes upon this yet BUT I hope you enjoy it all the same. <3

He leads me down a little further to a more secluded area hidden by the trees. I see the flickering of the candle lights as we approach and eye him curiously but he’s just smirking like a giddy school girl--in a completely masculine way of course.
We get closer and I notice there’s a red and white checkered picnic blanket with a bottle of sparkling grape juice and two champagne flutes as well as a tray of strawberries, chocolate, cheese and crackers. Beside the picnic is the word “PROM?” spelled out in twinkling white tea lights.
The smile that was already forming on my lips at the sight of the little picnic widens when I realize just how sweet my boyfriend is.
“Yes!” I answer the unspoken question as I throw my arms around his neck.
And for a moment, it’s easy to forget that I'm a part of this strange mythological world full of magic and darkness and good and evil. Tonight I'm not the Light Elf princess, but rather just a perfectly normal teenage girl who has just been asked to go to the prom.

New Job

In February I was offered a position at the local high school working with Seniors who are at risk for not graduating on time. It's only a part time job which I thought was perfect because I'd still have time to write during the day.

Well, it's true, I still have had time to write but it's been at a much slower pace. Which is fine. I had decided this year to focus on balancing things in my life better, and well, not staying up until 3 in the morning writing every night seemed like a pretty good place to start.

And it's been GREAT!

I love working with the students. I was kind of surprised that I love it as much as I do. I always figured I'd be more of an early childhood or elementary kind of person but nope, this is the population I was meant to work with.

Which I guess sort of makes sense--I do WRITE Young Adult stories after all. :)

Here's the thing, most of these students haven't had the best support systems in their lives. Not all of them, but I'd…
