Nibbling on those's time to gear up for Secret of the Souls blog tour!!

I'm not sure about the rest of you authors, but every time I'm ready to start organizing a blog tour for an upcoming release, I get nervous.

How's come??

The fear of no one wanting to help out / everyone's too busy to participate creeps in, making me nibble my nails - never mind the dirt beneath them from spending time in the garden. I gave up biting these nasty things when I got braces in high school & couldn't 'reach' them any more. 

Becoming an author brought back the disgusting habit because of all the...

Waiting on beta readers.



Waiting on that rejection email.

You know how it goes. But I digress...

Today ARCs of Secret of the Souls (Pool of Souls #2) released. Gulp. That means the blog tour sign ups have begun. Double gulp. What IS the Pool of Souls series? 

Check it out...

Eye of the Soul 
Pool of Souls #1
Publisher:  J. Taylor Publishing
Target Reader: Adult
Keywords: Fantasy

That should be Hyla’s first thought as her people are chained and imprisoned for no imaginable reason. 
Instead, Hyla finds herself traveling through a land void of Natives, with human soldiers pillaging in desperate pursuit of her, and in search of the mystical Pool of Souls—home to the one man who can save her people.

Or so she believes.

Led by her faith in the deity Fadir, Hyla is met along her journey by Jadon—a human male and fierce King’s warrior, and his childhood best friend Conlin—one of the few Natives aware of his Fadir-given Talents.

Protected by Jadon, guided by Conlin, and with an unfailing belief in the purpose of her pilgrimage, Hyla carries on.

Like her, though, another searches for the Pool, and should he gain access first, everyone she loves, and everything she knows, could be lost.


Secret of the Souls
Pool of Souls #2
Target Reader: Adult
Keywords: Fantasy
Thrust out of their homes by a human High Priest on a vengeful mission, the Natives of Derlund no longer have a place to call their own. One escaped capture, however, and now she, Hyla, is the only one who can save her people.

For, Hyla, though, saving her nation isn’t her ultimate goal—returning to the Pool of Souls is. Becoming its Guardian and preserving their faith is her heart’s desire. The perils of her current journey, though, could leave her unable to fulfill that dream.

To find her way back to the Pool, Hyla must live among dangerous, powerful humans willing to defend the Natives, and must submit herself—her Talents—to them. While her protection is paramount, plots to end Hyla’s life will push her to her physical and emotional limits.

On the edge of sanity, her courage tested, and convictions nearly broken, Hyla’s final test of loyalty to her faith comes with the death of one she could have loved.
