The State of Things: March 2020

It’s March 23.

That means there is exactly one month until Girl of Flesh and Metal hits the shelves. But if you’ve been following along you know that already.

What else is going on?

I’m revising Good Luck and Bad Juju, which is the first in a trilogy about cursed sisters. One of them has to die.

The youngest sister, Raven, sees how the curse has affected prior generations. Her mother survived, but her aunt died. Her grandmother survived, but her great aunt died. Raven sees her mother and grandmother mourn every day, and she doesn’t want that for herself.

She thinks the real curse is to be the one who lives. She’ll do anything to save her sisters, even if it costs her own life.

I’m hoping to get Good Luck and Bad Juju out this fall, and then I’ll turn my attention to some sequels! I already have outlines done for Smooth Vibes and Ill Fates, the sequel to Good Luck and Bad Juju, and for Clash of Flesh and Metal, which—you guessed it—is the sequel to Girl of Flesh and Metal.

Which one should I write next?

Cover Reveal: Good Luck and Bad Juju

It’s been a while since I published, but here is incontrovertible PROOF that I’ve been busy writing. Among the projects I’m working on is this new Young Adult Urban Fantasy trilogy.

Thanks to Seedlings Design Studio for the amazing artwork.

Here’s the cover art for the first book, Good Luck and Bad Juju, followed by a book description. I hope you’re as excited as I am for its release!

One sister must die.
The others have to live with it.

Hoodoo. Conjure. Folk magic.

Whatever you call it—in Raven’s family, it kills one girl per generation. Raven has two sisters and no plans to lose them. She refuses to become her control-freak mother or her drunk grandmother, who still grieve the sisters and daughter they lost to the curse.

Raven petitions the spirits for protective gifts: empathy for one sister, sight for the other, and Raven gets luck.

When a stranger with a dying son is caught in the petition, his gift makes him unstoppable. The more desperate he becomes, the stronger and larger he grows—and the more he loses control.

In his mind, only Raven, her sisters, and their magic stand between him and his son’s life.

The sisters have survived a hostage situation, a break-in, and countless car accidents, but this man’s uncontrolled strength and obsession are their greatest threat.

Will the girls’ gifts be enough to save them? And if not, is Raven lucky enough to be the one who dies?
