Jade’s Awakening and Jade’s Descent – Perfect Summer Reading!

JADE’S AWAKENING (Delacourt Saga, Book 1)   

What would you do if you had only ONE pill left? One pill that could stop you from becoming a supernatural. Well, Jade Delacourt has that pill.

On the night of her eighteenth birthday, Jade is about to become something she is afraid of… The full moon beckons her half shapeshifter and half fairy blood while she is at a cosplay convention and Jade endures her first painful shapeshifting. She transforms and then takes flight in the Atlanta skyline alit by a full moon.

Will a sexy shapeshifter actor help Jade, even when it’s the last thing he wants to do? Will Jade be caught by Bex or the Faction, two different enemies that want her dead?

Goodreads Review:
By Dianne
“A little mystery, a lot of action, a few shiftings and fairies that are not the little sparkly, gossamer winged creatures we think of! A quick read packed with story from an author to put at the top of the Hidden Gem pile!” -Tome Tender Book Blog

 Will Jade’s love for Seven help her or become a liability?

I’ve learned so much self publishing my novellas. I can’t believe I started Jade’s Awakening in 2014! 🙂 It began as a short story and is now planned as a 5 book series! Whew!

Book 1 and Book 2 are out already. Book 3 is in the works and will be released in February. I hope to have Book 4 and Book 5 released in 2017 and finish the series.

Upcoming news…

Speaking of finish, I have also finished a novel that I can’t wait to share more news about in the next few weeks!

So, this season, make sure to grab one of my books and enjoy!

Thanks for being on this journey with me! 🙂

A Return to Old Fashioned Books

My two young adult fantasy novellas, Jade’s Awakening and Jade’s Descent were only going to be e-books on Amazon. Why? Because I could only do so much and the thought of  formatting was a nightmare to me. As a new writer,  e-publishing had it’s own challenges. But I will admit to sighing occasionally with the thought of my books in print.  That had always been a dream of mine…

unsplash-real-book

I then made Jade’s Awakening (Book 1) available on Barnes & Noble Nook and Kobo. I’m in the process of Apple Books. With Jade’s Descent (Book 2), I did the same and now they are on Kobo and Nook. Kobo even allowed me to have Jade’s Paradox (Book 3) up as a pre-order available for readers, and that isn’t even being released until February.

The same way one can listen to a song via their phone and long for the scratchy yet deep sound that can only be achieved with a record player, I yearned to see my words on a printed page. I wanted my readers to be able to feel the paper and flip the page.  unsplash-record-player

There was a part of me that knew I still had yet another area to explore. I rolled my sleeves up and began the search for information on making my book available in print. It has been a long road, but well worth it.

There were terms I had never heard before and depths of Microsoft Word that I never knew existed. However, with the generosity of bloggers I was able to find my way. I am now awaiting my proofs for both books and I can’t help but feel like I’m waiting for Christmas!unsplash-xmas

 

I remember the countless books I’ve held in my hands, carried in my book bag, or lent to a family member or friend. Who hasn’t fallen asleep with your favorite book in your hand?

So, for my next blog post, be prepared for a photos of my printed books. It’s going to be a celebration! I may have a giveaway or two linked with my books being available for sale on Amazon.

The Takeaway…

Whatever you’re doing out there, keep your dreams alive, no matter how small or big.
