~MONARCH Release Day and Book Blog Tour Schedule~



It's release day, and I couldn't be prouder. MONARCH has been a long time coming. It was the most difficult of my books to write, and there's more than one reason for that. I think the most important reason is that quality takes time.

So, I listened to some really great music and allowed the story to unfold in my imagination.  I've got a great inspiration playlist for MONARCH on Spotify.  But this one song encapsulates not only MONARCH, but the whole trilogy.  In fact, this song is the official theme song for MONARCH.  The awesomely talented Kyler England gave me permission to use this song for the book trailer, which is still in production.


Check out Kyler's music here.  I know you'll love all her music as much as I do!

My characters wanted this book to be the best it could be for my readers. They wanted their story to be told correctly. So I took the time and listened to my characters while following them from Texas to deep in the jungles of Brazil. Judging from the feedback of my beta readers and a couple of fellow authors, I think my effort paid off. I hope all my readers will agree!


 Since today is MONARCH's Birthday, we're celebrating with 3 1/2 weeks of reviews, guest posts, MONARCH excerpts, and interviews! Oh! And there's a grand prize, too!

Here's what you can win:

A Copy of Kyler England's AWESOME CD!
