New Title, Release Date & Giveaway Winner


Back in January, I sent out a call for help with the title of the sequel to Kindred of the Fallen. I received quite a few comments and even a new title.


Stacy McKitrick suggested Protecting the Flame. A few comments later Miki recommended Protector of the Flame.

With the blessing of my editor, the new title for Kindred 2 is officially
Protector of the Flame

A big thank you to everyone who helped me, most especially Stacy and Miki!! I will be mentioning both of you on FB and Twitter this week J. Both of you will also be in the dedication of the book. Yes, I keep my promises or at least I try.


The release date for Protector of the Flame is November 5th. Squee!


Okay, on to a winner for Carol Kilgore’s book, Solomon’s Compass.

The lucky number generated: 11
