Writing books isn’t the only thing a writer has to keep track of, especially not when she’s indie. I am pretty stoked to share that I have updated, or my cover artist Candice Gilmer has updated, the look and feel of the covers for my science fiction “during apocalypse” romance trilogy, the Maelstrom Trilogy. These covers should be hitting the genre right, not a swing and a whiff! I also renamed the first book from Angeli to DEFENDER because, well, there are no actual angels in that book (only fake ones) and it wouldn’t be fair to fans of actual angel romances to drag them into the scifi nonsense, would it?
Without further ado…
Hopefully these new covers that look more like SF and less than PNR will help readers find the delicious during apocalypse hijinks with fake angels, emo warriors, angry refugee women, resourceful computers, and lots of settings across the American West. Oh, and a brief appearance of a cat in #3 to appease Meankitty!

This week our dragon romance box sets of Dragons of Tarakona paranormal stories released, along with another fantastical book from the worlds of Magic, New Mexico. Alongside me and my cowriter DB Sieders, Evelyn Lederman released a romance called Wild Enchantment with a CAT on the cover!
I also released a newsletter today wherein Meankitty interviewed the cats who own Evelyn, and we got some really good dirt on the human, as always. If you aren’t subscribed, you should be! Check at the top of the page to get yourself hooked up. Here’s the kitties’ introduction of themselves:
Precious, Rudie, and Stefano
Precious: I love sitting next to Evelyn while we watch TV. During the day, I’ll sleep with Rudie, but I don’t like Stefano, he’s a brat! I start the day with my treats, which I share with the other cats. I wasn’t happy when Evelyn adopted the kitties, but Rudie has grown on me.
Rudie: Every morning I wait for Evelyn to give me my treats. I don’t understand why she has to shower first. Stefano always has his nose up my butt, but I growl at him and he leaves me alone for a time. I like playing with my brother, but I don’t like it when he bites my neck trying to show his dominance over me. I sometimes get the best of him, that makes my day.
Stefano: My favorite part of the day is when Evelyn plays with me. I love the laser pointer. She’ll stop when she’s doing laundry or writing so we can play. Rudie used to play with me more, but she’s gotten so lazy. Precious just growls when I approach, she doesn’t have a sense of humor. There’s a bobcat who prowls outside my lanai at 2am and I howl at him. I don’t understand how everyone can sleep when there is so much to do in the wee hours of the morning.
