Umm … I forgot?!

There is a long list of things an author shouldn’t do, most of them centering around social media interaction and reviews, etc.

But what about when an author forgets about their own book’s release date? Impossible, you might think. And up until today, I would have agreed.  

You see, yesterday was Nightmare Thief’s release date, book birthday, or whatever you want to call it. Thankfully, it still went live thanks to pre-order, but yeah, I forgot. Kind of. What I mean by that is, well, ummm … I knew Nightmare Thief was scheduled for release April 6th, but I lost track of the days, months really. I thought I had more time to make teasers and to promote. In fact, It seemed like I had a lot of time left before release day.

The next thing I knew, it’s the day after said release date, and it passed without notice from me. *screams*

How? How did this happen? The truth is, I’m not sure. Yes, I’ve had a ton of personal shit going down in my life in the past few weeks. A lot. Because of these things I’ve been depressed, angsty, and a whole bunch of not-fun things. But I’ve managed to keep writing my next books without issue. Of course, writing is an escape, and social media interactions seem oppressive on the best days, so maybe my brain purposely blocked out release day. *shrugs* I guess it doesn’t matter in the end. I’m here now.

Sooo …

Nightmare Thief is LIVE!!!

Ummm … I think that’s about it for now. Unless, I forgot something else. Ugh.

Until next time …

Surprise! Halfway Wicked Cover Reveal and Pre-order links!

6 months is technically how long it’s been since I’ve posted on here. But take into account the CoVid time warp and it’s also been simultaneously 6 seconds and 6 years. Who knows anymore? Yep, there’s definitely been some wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff going on up in here. 😉

Anywho … I thought about doing a big cover reveal and all of that for Halfway Wicked. Then I decided, I simply don’t feel like it. *shrugs*

Sooo …

Here it is, the cover for Halfway Wicked !!!

(All this cover awesomeness was done by Lindsay Tiry of LT Arts.)

And the blurb:

Twice marked. Once by Heaven, once by Hell …

Riss Wilde, and her sister Lily, were forced into the demon-fighting arena at a young age. After nearly a decade of hunting the denizens of Hell to determine the fate of their souls, they found stability, of sorts, with a home base in Nashville, Tennessee.

When a fellow hunter turns up dead, secrets are revealed that send all the players in the game scrambling. Now, Riss and Lily not only have to contend with demons, but with the possibility that everything they’ve been fighting for is a lie.

Left with nothing but bad choices, Riss will do what’s she’s always done, protect those she loves at all costs. Hopefully, she doesn’t bring on the Apocalypse in the process.

Nightmare Thief Cover Reveal & Pre-order

Here it is, the cover for Nightmare Thief !!!

(All this cover awesomeness was done by Lindsay Tiry of LT Arts.)

And the blurb:

If you do bad things for a good reason … are you still a villain?

Remy Novem is the not so ambivalent caretaker of the dreamscape Somniare, the place where all creatures go to dream. Her job is to keep the barriers strong between worlds, so nightmares stay where they belong, and no one ends up dead or worse. Her magic feeds off of terror, sweetened by the little bit of torture she enjoys doling out to unsuspecting dreamers. Nocturnal suffering in exchange for safety, not a bad deal as far as Remy is concerned. But not everyone is pleased with the current status quo.

When a mystery foe starts springing nightmares from Somniare, causing havoc in all the worlds, Remy will find out exactly how wrong she was about … everything.

The Eclipsed is LIVE!!!

Today is the day.

Today is the day

TheEclipsed_DaraKent_EBOOKfinal

goes LIVE!!!

And shit am I nervous. Even though this is the 25th full-length novel under my belt, it’s the first released under my new pen name Dara Kent. And it’s also my first non-romance novel. This release honestly feels like my first all over again. I want people to read my book, but I also don’t want people to read my book. I just … yeah, I think I might puke. Ugh.

I suppose this is where I should post the buy links. I almost forgot. Probably because a part of me, like I mentioned above, doesn’t want anyone to actually read this book. But I also don’t want people to not read this book. Mmm Hmm … I am a neurotic mess with all of this. I know, I know, it’s pretty obvious.

Ummm … Yep, again, that’s it for now. I think I might go hide under a rock for a bit.

Until next time …

The Eclipsed Cover Reveal & Pre-order

Here it is, the cover for The Eclipsed, the first novel by Dara Kent.

(All this cover awesomeness was done by Lindsay Tiry of LT Arts.)

And the blurb:

Eighty-nine is just a number …

A nameless immortal tasked with ensuring fixed points in time. Without fail she’s always done her job, protecting reality.

But Eighty-nine’s world is flipped upside down when a jarring discovery, followed by a loss, causes her to question everything.

With the help of an unlikely ally, Eighty-nine will embark on a journey that will end with one simple choice: To save reality or let it be ripped apart forever.

Maybe it isn’t so simple after all.

Although, not all the pre-orders have gone live yet. I will update as they do. The ebook & print will both be released on May 12th, so a short few weeks away. The audio book is still in the works so I don’t have a date for that yet. It is coming though.

Ummm …

I guess that’s it for now.

Until next time …

I heart you gif
