There's one novella (THE SWAY) and there may be more, but this book concludes the trilogy. I have to say it was the hardest book I've ever written, and admittedly, I went back and forth on this book. My heart was truly torn. But I hope you enjoy this story as much as I enjoyed writing it. Here's where you can find it:

For those who've read HIDDEN DEEP (or want to!) I'm thrilled to tell you the sequel is now available at these lovely online retailers:
and soon to come at B & N!
Already getting some great reviews over at Goodreads. :)
Here's a little preview of the story:
17-year-old Ryann Carroll thought she knew who she was… a small-town Southern girl just trying to survive her parents’ messy divorce and find some peace for herself. She thought she knew what she wanted… a summer job, a car, a first date that didn’t suck, and NO complications from a serious relationship—any guy in her life would simply be icing on the cake.
But now… she’s not only in love, her boyfriend Lad is a member of a secret race that’s lived secretly among humans for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore. Things could hardly get more complicated than that.
More importantly, she’s learned the world’s top celebrities… those actors, musicians, athletes, and politicians who seem a little too beautiful and talented to be true… actually are. They’re not human, and they’re using their glamour and the increasing popularity of fan pods to control more and more humans. But why?
With her best friend Emmy leaving soon to join the fan pod of a famous actor, Ryann has to find out the answer. And she can’t do it alone. But after a shocking murder, Lad can no longer fight his destiny or his duty, and Ryann’s not sure whether his top priority is their relationship or his people.
In this second book of the Hidden Trilogy, true friendship will take Ryann from rural Mississippi to the glittering city of Los Angeles. And true love will take her to places she never expected to go…
**Grab your copy today and Give in to the Glamour of the Hidden Trilogy (again)** :)

The Faery Tales bundle is off to a great start, getting lots of downloads -- at only 99 cents for 6 brand new novellas-- and some great early reviews, too.
Here's a little about the stories in the bundle:
THE MORRIGAN – Phaedra Weldon
Irish folklore student Tam Kirkpatrick finds himself the focus of dark Faery forces intent on stealing his shillelagh. The catch is—Tam never knew he had one, let alone that he was the son of a Leprechaun. Now he must find his shillelagh and claim his heritage, before it’s too late.
THE SWAY – Amy Patrick
A member of the Dark Court, Vancia has spent her life among humans—together but separate, hiding in plain sight. Now Pappa says it’s time to put her glamour to use against the unsuspecting humans and worse, agree to an arranged political marriage with the reclusive Light Elven prince.
HOW TO BABYSIT A CHANGELING– USA Today bestselling author Anthea Sharp
When a mortal boy is exchanged for a hideous faerie creature, Marny Fanalua steps up to help her friends in their battle against the Dark Court.
*NOTE * The events in this novella occur simultaneously with Feyland: The Twilight Kingdom. Reading the complete Feyland Trilogy first is recommended if you would like to avoid spoilers.
FAELEAHN – Jenna Elizabeth Johnson
Meghan and Cade are ready to pledge their souls to one another in a traditional bonding ceremony of Eile. While sharing their news with friends, the faelah bounty hunter and the princess of Erintara grow even closer as their love is reflected back to them by those they hold most dear.
*NOTE* The events in this novella take place after the conclusion of Luathara, the third book in the Otherworld Trilogy. If you wish to avoid spoilers, you might want to read the first three Otherworld books (Faelorehn, Dolmarehn and Luathara) before reading.
ARRANGED – Julia Crane
Magick’s been restored on earth but it comes at a crippling price. With the planet on the brink of destruction, an unlikely pair must work together to try to bridge together a lifetime of hatred. Will their forbidden romance bring their worlds together or tear them apart?
WITHOUT ARMOR – Alexia Purdy
The Unseelie are up to no good… My name is Benton, and I hunt the darkest of creatures in existence. Especially when they get unruly and try to invade my home, the human realm. Betrayal, broken hearts and uncharted magic…I never saw it coming.

Hi! It's Teaser Tuesday, the very first one for HIDDEN DEEP. With less than a month to go before release day, I thought it'd be fun to "illustrate" the first two lines of the book. So here goes....
If you've read the book description or the opening pages, you know Ryann is a bit... underdressed when she sees Lad for the *second* time, as in skinny-dipping in a spring-fed pool on her grandma's forest land. And then the fun begins!
If you'd like to pre-order HIDDEN DEEP from Amazon, you can click here.
It should be available on iTunes/ibooks and Barnes and Noble for pre-order very soon. And if you'd like to add it on Goodreads... here's the link to do that. Plus, there's still time to enter the Goodreads giveaway for a *paperback* version. The countdown is on till March 23!!

Because my next novel out for publication is the first book in a different series, and not only that, it's in a different genre!
HIDDEN DEEP is a YA Fantasy/Paranormal romance and the first book in a trilogy. I actually wrote it before writing the 20 Something books, but I put it aside to work on them, and late last year picked it up again and began the editing process with it.
I truly love this book. It was the one that made me a Golden Heart finalist in 2013, and it's set in a fictional version of my little Mississippi hometown. But that's where the ties to reality end.
Here's what the story's about:
Sixteen-year-old Ryann Carroll has just run into the guy who saved her life ten years ago. You might think she'd be happy to see him again. Not exactly. She's a bit underdressed (as in skinny-dipping) and he's not supposed to exist.
After her father's affair, all Ryann wants is to escape the family implosion fallout and find a little peace. She also wouldn't mind a first date that didn't suck, but she's determined not to end up like her mom: vulnerable, betrayed, destroyed. Ryann's recently moved back to her childhood home in rural Mississippi, the same place where ten years earlier she became lost in the woods overnight and nearly died.
She's still irresistibly drawn to those woods. There she encounters the boy who kept her from freezing to death that long ago winter night and was nowhere to be seen when rescuers arrived. He's still mysterious, but now all grown-up and gorgeous, too. And the more she's with him, the greater the threat he poses to Ryann's strict policy-- never want someone more than he wants you.
Seventeen-year-old Lad knows the law of his people all too well: Don't get careless and Don't get caught. It's allowed his race to live undetected in this world for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore…
Lad's never been able to forget about Ryann since that night ten years ago. When he sees her again, his fascination re-ignites and becomes a growing desire that tempts him to break all the Here'rules. He's not even supposed to talk to a human, much less fall in love with one.
And the timing is atrocious. The Assemblage is coming, the rift between the Light and Dark is widening, and mysterious celebrity fan pods are becoming more and more widespread and influential. Lad may have to trade his own chance at happiness to keep the humans, especially Ryann, blissfully unaware and safe.
The release date for HIDDEN DEEP is March 23rd.
I'm excited that I get to reveal the cover on Monday, Feb. 9th!!!!!! And if you'd like, you can help. If you have a blog- great. If not- no problem! I'd love for you to post the cover on your Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, side of your house, face-paint it--wherever you want!
