By now, you're all probably well aware of my twin series Daughter of Fire and Son of Rain. If not, the easiest way to explain is it that I have two series, each of which follows one half of a Romeo and Juliet style paranormal love affair. The two stories follow the same timeline, and although they cross over in places, each character has a very different story to tell. 

Through the Fire (Daughter of Fire Book 1)

Evie Meyers’ life is one spent on the run. Every minute of every day, her life is in danger if anyone should suspect the truth about her ancestry. Her father was willing to risk everything to keep the truth hidden, even from her, but the lies he fabricated were exposed when her high school crush, Clay Jacobs, inadvertently stumbled upon her secret. His discovery puts Evie at risk from a secret organization tasked with washing the world clean of nonhumans—and Clay is one of its deadliest soldiers. Forced into a war she doesn’t understand, all because of what she is, Evie is left with no choice but to flee with her father to escape persecution.

When Clay reappears in her life, battle scarred and mysterious, Evie is unprepared and terrified as he forces his way back into her heart. When the battle catches up with her, and a tragic accident tears apart the peace she discovered, she finds herself alone and without the protection of her father, or her lover. Now, she needs to keep her secrets hidden and learn to survive on her own in a world that wants her dead, all while searching for the missing piece of her heart.

Besieged by Rain (Son of Rain Book 1)

Clay Jacobs is a soldier. His family—elite members of a secret organization—are tasked with washing the world clean of all supernatural threats. Each new day brings the opportunity to fight at their side for a cause that he’s never doubted is just.‏ 

But Clay harbors a dangerous secret. The object of his teenage obsession was not human, and he failed to detect the truth until it was too late to destroy her. Even after she fled, he couldn't bring himself to report her. Now, the memory of the one who got away not only haunts him, it holds him captive and assaults him nightly. Unable to escape her hold on his mind, he races across the country to locate her and restore his sanity. Only instead of the monster he expects, he finds a woman who ensnares him with her charms. In her embrace, Clay dares to imagine a different life.

When his family discovers his betrayal, and threaten to destroy his dreams in the worst way imaginable, Clay has no option but to return to their side and convince them he’s back on the right track. Will he be able to play his part convincingly when the cause he’s spent most of his life fighting for is the very thing that will end his lover’s life?

Cover Reveal: Drifting Sands (The Warfield Hotel Mysteries, #1)

Author: C. J. Baty

As he approaches his fortieth birthday, Justin Warfield feels alone, drifting like the sand that blows along the beach near his family’s hotel. He has done exactly as his father wanted. Married the right girl and carried on the family tradition of running the Warfield Hotel. On paper things seem perfect, but happiness hasn’t been a part of his life for a very long time.
Marcus Drummond once spent a summer with his best friend Peter at the Warfield Hotel and fell hard for Peter’s much older brother. Five years later he’s back, and this time hopes that Justin will see him as more than his kid brother’s friend.
Sparks fly when the two meet again, but there are a few things standing in their way. The closet that Justin has himself buried in and someone on a killing spree, dumping bodies on the Warfield beach . . . victims that indicate Justin may be involved in some way.

All Amity Allows Release Day Blitz




Amity is a disillusioned angel. 

For countless millennia, she's helped her assignments find truth in their experiences and improve their lives. Once, she'd been tender and caring, but humanity's misuse of free will and her own missteps have left her jaded. 

Now, all Amity allows is the truth. Get in, get out, and never let them know that she’s there. That’s the motto she's lived by for years. She considers her latest assignment nothing more than the next in a long line of jilted lovers that she’s had to help. When her presence exposes more than either of them was ready for, will they be able to find the truths hidden deep within the other? Or will the fallout leave them both in tatters? 

The truth will set them free. 

Won’t it?

Author Bio:

Michelle Irwin has been many things in her life: a hobbit taking a precious item to a fiery mountain; a young child stepping through the back of a wardrobe into another land; the last human stranded not-quite-alone in space three million years in the future; a young girl willing to fight for the love of a vampire; and a time-travelling madman in a box. She achieved all of these feats and many more through her voracious reading habit. Eventually, so much reading had to have an effect and the cast of characters inside her mind took over and spilled out onto the page. 

Michelle lives in sunny Queensland in the land down under with her surprisingly patient husband and ever-intriguing daughter, carving out precious moments of writing and reading time around her accounts-based day job. A lover of love and overcoming the odds, she primarily writes paranormal and fantasy romance.

Juggling Act

I know . . . I know . . . once again my blogging tasks have fallen to the wayside. The only excuse I really have is that I'm trying to bring you a number of awesome stories in the shortest time feasibly possible (without sacrificing on quality). Unfortunately, one thing I've learned since Through the Fire went live in October is that while writing, editing, and formatting a book are important they're just the tip of the iceberg in demands for author time. There is social media to manage, online parties to arrange (and some offline ones too if your lucky), review requests, blog tours, blogging, release day promotion, networking, accounting and tracking income/expenses, scheduling, troubleshooting, the list goes on and sometimes it feels a little endless. And I'm not doing half the promotion of other authors I know/have seen who post in every Facebook group and comment on every "Teaser Tuesday" post around. Whether those posts get seen or not, whether it helps get them a sale or not, I have no idea. Some of them seem to be doing okay, but very few seem to put up their hands and say that they're not.

For me, this is all done around my family and my full time day job. I really do love it, but there are many, many days I wish I could have just one hour more to get a blog post up, or to finish editing the chapter, write another 1,000 words, something--anything--productive. There are people around who can help with elements of these things obviously, but at the moment my entire income from books, and my everything spare in my budget from my day job, is being spent on editing and cover design. These are two areas I refuse to sacrifice and skimp.

Because of all the different things authors need to be doing, the indie world ends up feeling like a great big juggling act. There are some days where I feel like I have all the balls in the air and am wowing the crowd with my prowess. There are other days where I feel like each ball has just dropped on my head in successive order and all I should do is bow off the stage and let the professionals do it. Most days though, I feel somewhere in the middle. Like I'm holding my own just by not letting the balls fall onto the ground. Blogging and networking are the two balls which have come the closest to falling lately, but hopefully once I'm through the current round of edits, I can dive across the stage to get them back in the air.

The one thing which I always try to remember is that whether the days are good or bad, I'm just lucky to be here playing with the balls at all. (*snort* sorry, I had to. I can only say balls so many times in one post before my juvenile part pipes up and considering that juvenile part is currently driving Declan's story, I can't suppress it too much hehehehe)
