So, I just wanted to pop in here and let you know that Blood Instincts, my futuristic paranormal romance/urban fantasy novel, and book two of the Blood at First Sight Series, was accepted by my publisher! Yay! ♥
I hope to receive the book cover and get a release date from them soon, at least after the publisher’s editors look over the book. In any case, we’re that much closer to seeing the book out in 2018!
Woo hoo! 🙂
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and every beautiful thing you can imagine in the new year. You deserve it!

Thursday Trilogies and More: Marie Lavender and Magick!
Get a sneak peek of my future lighthearted romantic fantasy, Magick Sunrise, book three of the Magick Series, here!
Hello and welcome to Living the Dream. Today, I would like to highlight one of my favorite authors, Marie Lavender. One of the most difficult things for an author to do is write a series of books. The key is keeping the reader hooked from one book to another. J.K. Rowling mastered this with her Harry Potter books and I believe Marie is on her way to doing the same. Read on to learn more!
Blurb for Magick & Moonlight, book one of the Magick Series
Genre: Lighthearted Romantic Fantasy
Messing with free will is always a bad idea…
Ethan Hamilton moves to a lazy little town in Oregon, hoping to escape his demons. But, instead he discovers a woman dancing nude in the moonlight. This woman who claims she is a witch dazzles him with her sensual presence. He thinks she’s crazy, but what if she’s not?

Today’s letter is M, and in keeping with my decision to introduce you to authors you may not have had a chance to meet before. Today’s author is Marie Lavender, and I’ll be showcasing her new books, The Magick Series
M is For Marie and Magick
Let Marie tell you about herself.
I have been writing for over twenty-five years. From the tender age of nine, I knew I wanted to be an author. I’ve spent most of my life trying to fulfill that dream. I began publishing in 2010, and was fortunate enough to be discovered by Solstice Publishing when they picked up and published my first historical romance novel, Upon…
