If you're reading this it's the end of July, or rather, the 1st of August! This year is flying by and I cannot believe that we are past halfway point of the year already!
As I slowly get back into the swing of things, I can feel that I have a lot to catch up on, a lot to schedule and a lot to let you all know about.
August is crunch time for me. I have a Spotlight even, Comic Con is fast approaching, and I have Medievil Fayre coming up as well! All of which I still need to do marketing designs for, advertising in groups and facebook posts. Talk about a lot of work to do this week!
To keep you up to date with everything that's happening here's a break down of what you can look forward to!
Comic Con Africa is ALMOST here
It literally is almost here. We have entered the final count down. With just over a month to go, Comic Con Africa is going to be HUGE and I am so excited to see everyone at the event. Fantasy Author Toni Cox and I have been extremely hard at work to try and make sure that you are absolutely blown away with what we have to offer, and that's just with our books! Never mind the amazing swag and merchandise that will be on offer as well.
Remember, there will be limits on certain items - like my amazing tshirts and epic calendars - so you'll want to get those as soon as possible.

Author Spotlight Event
At 15:00 PM EST. on the 18st August I'll be doing an Author Spotlight with the amazing group Author Friends with Benefits. This will be a great opportunity to win some amazing things from me as well as find out about Watcher! My soon to be released collection of short stories.
You can follow my group - Sian's Little Nightmares - to see when the event is loaded and you'll then be able to follow and join in on the event.
Medieval Fayre is also coming up in September and I will send a reminder out with the September Newsletter but start planning for it already.
Draco the Dragon will be there selling R5 bookmarks on behalf of Kitty & Puppy Haven who suffered from a fire that took out most of their food and buildings earlier on in the year. All proceeds raised will go to the puppies and kitties at the shelter.

Authors of the week
I am trying to get back into the groove of reading and while I am busy completing Hush Little Baby by Sean Kerr, I would like to mention a few authors who I recently discovered through Horror Author Carnival on Facebook and who I absolutely love.
Here are a few of their books! Go give them some one clicks because I can guarantee you their books are nothing like anything you have read before!!!!
Title: Oh, Bite Me: Paranormal Dating Agency (Guardians of the Deep)
Amazon Buy link: https://amzn.to/2Ot97rv
Blurb: Wolves, bears, tigers, and dragons. Shifters come in so many shapes and sizes, but not all alphas are on dry land.
Thane patrols the water off the coast of Australia, making sure a school of rebel sharks doesn’t attack human tourists. Selflessly putting himself in harm’s way means little time trying to find his one true mate.
Penny has sworn off dating after meeting the wrong kind of shifter—the douchebag kind with a nasty temper. However, a chance encounter while on vacation in Australia finds her sitting by the pool next to Geraldine Wilder, supernatural matchmaking guru. In typical Gerri style, she’s having none of that “love isn’t for me” nonsense.
Now, with the Paranormal Dating Agency in her corner, will Penny finally have a chance at her happily ever after? Will she find what she’s been looking for in Thane, the flirtatious stranger she meets on a party cruise? Or will she find herself in deep, dangerous water?
This is a tiger shark shifter story. Be prepared to get wet.
Title: 13 Demons Way
Amazon Buy Link: https://amzn.to/2Nuqjvw
Blurb: Don't bother knocking because no one is home. Just turn the doorknob and enter. Please leave your Good Book, Rosary and Cross at the door. Take your coat off and feel free to hang it on the rack. Dirty shoes are allowed in here and never mind the dark stains on the carpet. Prepare yourself my new friend because Hell's doors have opened and the Demons have come out to play. Welcome to 13 Demons Way.

Open The Door and take this journey with me.
Title: Rayven's Redemption
