First of all. JUMPER is coming out November 14. ARCs are going to be available through Booksprout and my ARC Team starting on Friday the 3rd. Reviews will be due November 21. My beta readers all thought that this was a great but different read than all the other Somnolence books. It’s definitely a much darker tale, but I loved JUMPER’s backstory it begged to be told.
My life is a bit on end right now. My husband is a doer not a sit on his hand and think about things kind of guy. We talked for about five minutes regarding moving, and then the next thing I knew there was a sign on my front yard, a realtor in my home, and a scheduled open house.
To say I’m unprepared is an understatement. I’m releasing a book for goodness sakes. It’s not time to upheave my life and sell our house out from under me. And better yet than all that? He is sending me alone to buy a house across the country. His theory is that he bought this
So, bookwise, my plans for releases are all shook up and spun sideways. I was planning for a early January release of a YA/NA dystopian and I’m unsure when that is coming. I will be putting out a Somnolence novella definitely for February. But that is all I know right now. Nix’s book is out there in the wind. I don’t have a date for you. Not even the suggestion of one.
What I do have dates on are signings. Here are the places I will be and when.
Title: Veils and Vampires (Vampires of the Daemonverse #2) Author: Cee Bee Genre: Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance Release Date: October 14, 2023
Highlander meets Twilight with a dash of Fifty Shades of Grey in this vampire romantasy…
Caelin MacGregor is an ancient king with a new love
Ages ago, I ruled a clan of vampire raiders. We were allies to the Vikings and enemies of the Rus. That life ended when the bloodkin plague wiped out all our women, including my beloved vampire bride, Elisava. A thousand years have passed. My heart remains empty. Then I see a human woman named Lexa. For the first time in ages, I feel true desire, respect and love. Could Lexa actually be a lost bloodkin lady … or is she a horrible trick from Pyri, the ancient fire goddess of the Rus raiders?
Lexa Uznetsov has a plan
To save my sister, Sash, I took on my father’s debt to Konstantin the Rus, leader of the New York Bratva. As a result, my life became a never-ending (and incredibly illegal) stakeout for the mob. After years of scheming, I’ve finally come up with a solid escape plan: find all three pieces of the infamous Veil Pendant. Once I reassemble this magical item, I’ll have the power to cure my sister … as well as the ability to say buh-bye to Konstantin. Sure, legends warn that reforming the Veil Pendant may bring about some nastiness called Pyri’s doomsday. Yet if it saves Sash, I’m willing to risk anything.
“Veils and Vampires is amazing! It has action and adventure and a little spicy. Enough that it makes you drool and want more. Honestly a totally different take on modern day vampire soulmates. I devoured this book in one sitting.” – Teresa, Goodreads

But the more Dingo tries to protect me, the more I know he’s hurting too.
Can two fractured hearts find a way to heal together?
NOTE: This is book 7 in the Grimm Wolves MC series. It is a standalone however reading the previous books would give you a fuller understanding (back stories, minor characters, etc.) of the series. They are available below to request to review but not required to read before Fractured Hearts.
Also, Running Wild is also suggested to be read prior – as Fractured Hearts begins where this book left off.
It’s so dark in his life that his Claimed mates may never get out.
Becca Grimm is a Legion demon and has known one thing since she was a young girl: she would have a breeding pact. That her breeding pact partner turned out to be her Tether was a dream come true until he broke her heart, and then she wanted to break his face until he crawled back to kiss her feet.
But Jumper’s world is darker and more secretive than he’s ever let on. Even with her guardian-Tethers, at her side, she can barely navigate it. And finding her way back to the light is impossible in a world where wickedness reigns.
Becca can’t say no to the things Jumper demands of her. She loves the things that Tobin wants from her. And she can’t look away from the things she sees Jumper and Crux do together.
Content Warning to come.
It’s recommended that you read the series in order, beginning with RAIDEN.

Title: The Measure of Sorrow Stories Author: J. Ashley-Smith Genre: Collection / Dark Fantasy / Horror Release Date: June 6, 2023
Shirley Jackson Award-winning author J. Ashley-Smith’s first collection, The Measure of Sorrow, draws together ten new and previously acclaimed stories of dark speculative fiction. In these pages a black reef holds the secret to an interminable coastal limbo; a father struggles to relate to his estranged children in a post-bushfire wilderness; an artist records her last days in conversation with her unborn child; a brother and sister are abandoned to the manifestations of their uncle’s insanity; a suburban neighborhood succumbs to an indescribable malaise; teenage ravers fall in with an eldritch crowd; a sensitive New Age guy commits a terminal act of passive-aggression; a plane crash opens the door to the Garden of Eden; the new boy in the village falls victim to a fatal ruse; and a husband’s unexpressed grief is embodied in the shadows of a crumbling country barn. Intelligent and emotionally complex, the stories in The Measure of Sorrow elude easy classification, lifting the veil on the wonder and horror of a world just out of true.
