You may have noticed that you did not receive a newsletter in the first week of April as per usual. Unfortunately life got to be and I needed to take a well deserved break from writing and writing stuff in order to get back on track - which thankfully I have.
Towards the end of March / Mid April is a tough time for me because in March it's my departed dad's birthday and in April, the day he left. So it isn't really a happy time for me, but I'm working on making it a better time but celebrating all things writing.
Starting with a giveaway of my #AuthorBestie to celebrate her Birthday on April 19th.
To enter all you have to do is go on over to her Bookbub account and follow her using this link.
Screenshot it and send it to me via email and you will be entered into a draw for a copy of her first book Elemental Rising as a gift from me to you to celebrate her #Birthday.
Winners will be announced in the Mid-May Newsletter.

As the missions she goes on become increasingly difficult and the morality grows increasingly gray, Rachel must choose where her allegiance lies. Choose wrong and she could die permanently.
Another installment in the Seven Stars Universe by Dayne Edmondson, this is a young adult space opera adventure novel set a few years before his space opera novel "Emergence" and featuring a major character from the third book, "Ruin."
