Elementals Release Day!

Hi everyone!

Today I am excited to announce that Elementals: The Prophecy of Shadows, the first book in the Elementals series, has officially released and you can purchase it at all online bookseller locations! I hope that you enjoy Elementals: The Prophecy of Shadows as much as I enjoyed writing it, and I look forward to sharing more of Nicole, Blake, and everyone else's adventures with you as the series continues!

BUY NOW: [ Amazon ]

Filled with magic, thrilling adventure, and sweet romance, Elementals is the first in a new series that fans of mythology will love!

When Nicole Cassidy moves from sunny Georgia to gloomy New England, the last thing she expects is to learn that her homeroom is a cover for a secret coven of witches. Even more surprisingly ... she's apparently a witch herself. Despite doubts about her newfound abilities, Nicole is welcomed into this ancient circle of witches and is bedazzled by their powers--and, to her dismay, by Blake--the school's notorious bad-boy.

Girls who get close to Blake wind up hurt. His girlfriend Danielle will do anything to keep them away, even if she must resort to using dark magic. But the chemistry between Blake and Nicole is undeniable, and despite wanting to protect Nicole from Danielle's wrath, he finds it impossible to keep his distance.

When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years, Nicole, Blake, Danielle, and two others in their homeroom are gifted with mysterious powers over the elements. But the comet has another effect--it opens the portal to the prison world that has contained the Titans for centuries. After an ancient monster escapes and attacks Nicole and Blake, it's up to them and the others to follow the clues from a cryptic prophecy so that they can save their town ... and possibly the world.

Elementals: The Blood of the Hydra Cover Reveal!

I'm so excited to share the cover and description for Book #2 in the Elementals series, The Blood of the Hydra! I hope you all like it, and I can't wait for the first book in the series to release on Tuesday! To celebrate the reveal, I'm giving away a signed paperback of the first book, Elementals: The Prophecy of Shadows -- you can enter to win using the Rafflecopter on the bottom of this post.

The Blood of the Hydra also has a countdown widget, which you can find on the right sidebar of my blog. If you have a blog, be sure to grab the code so you can put the widget on your blog and share the love!

Now, without further waiting ... here's the cover for Elementals: The Blood of the Hydra!


A DEMIGOD WHO CAN KILL WITH A TOUCH. IT’S AN ABILITY THAT MUST BE KEPT SECRET FROM EVERYONE, EVEN FROM THOSE TRUSTED MOST.

Finding out that her new school had her in a special homeroom for witches was strange enough, but now Nicole must face the realization that she has the rare power to kill with just a touch. It’s a secret she needs to keep not only from the Head Elders, but from the super-sexy witch Blake, who she’s had undeniable chemistry with even before he broke up with his long-term girlfriend, the vengeful witch Danielle.

Now Nicole and the four others gifted with powers over the elements, including Blake and Danielle, must stop a series of monsters that they previously believed to be dead from rising once again and destroying the mortal world. Three magical items are needed, including the blood of the slain hydra – ingredients that they must journey to the dangerous, mystical islands in Greece to retrieve.

The monsters they face on this journey will be more threatening than anything they’ve encountered yet. But with the fate of the world on their shoulders, it’s up to the Elementals to return home victorious. Will they find the ingredients they need? Can Nicole and her friends pull off this mission while the tension between her, Blake, and Danielle threatens to ruin everything? And how long will it be until Nicole is forced to use her ability to kill in front of everyone, revealing the true darkness of her powers?

Find out in The Blood of the Hydra, and join the Elementals on their next journey in their quest to save the world – or die trying.

New Year, New Covers!


Hi, everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful New Year's Eve, and that your first day of 2016 is off to a great start! As you can probably tell already, to start off my new year, I'm revealing a new look for the covers of The Transcend Time Saga!

The Transcend Time Saga was my first series - Remembrance, the first book in the series, came out in 2011. I can't believe it's been five years! I self-published that series, and it was such a great experience for me. But since then, I've also learned a lot, and recently I've been wishing that I'd done my covers differently. I love the images that I used for Remembrance and Vengeance, but I felt like they needed more sparkle. As for Timeless, the original cover had a lot of symbolism for the story, but I wished the cover was better matched with the other two, so it was clear that they're all part of the same series.

I recently spent a few days visiting my author friend Elise Kova (the author of Air Awakens), and while there, I voiced my thoughts that I was having about The Transcend Time Saga covers. Elise, being the amazing, talented friend that she is, offered to do the redesigns for me!

The timing couldn't have been more perfect. With 2016 approaching, and with my return to fantasy and self-publishing around the corner with the upcoming release of Elementals, I decided it was a perfect time to revamp the covers for The Transcend Time Saga! The insides of the books are not changing - only the covers. Check them out below ... I hope you love them as much as I do!




About REMEMBRANCE, the first book in the series ...

Lizzie can't understand her deep attraction to mysterious transfer student Drew. Are they connected by their past lives? This enthralling tale of love and fate has over 100 five-star reviews on Amazon!

Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from 1815, England ... but she doesn't realize it until she meets her soul mate from the past and he triggers her memories to gradually return.

When Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school, she feels a connection to him, like she knows him. But he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching Drew is more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind?

Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, but fighting fate isn't easy, and she's determined to unravel the mysteries of the past.

PRAISE FOR REMEMBRANCE:

"If you were to take a dash of Romeo and Juliet, a handful of Pride and Prejudice, and a pinch of a Disney fairytale, you'd probably come up with Remembrance!"
-Gilbert & Gomez Reviews ★★★★★

"The love between Drew and Lizzie is everything you could hope to see in a love pairing. It's honest and real. Romantic and agonizing. Sensual and heartfelt. I was drawn into these characters, their relationship, and the world Michelle creates."
-Addicted to Words Reviews ★★★★★
