Shinobi Release Party!!!

You guys, I am so excited to announce the details of Shinobi’s release party and signing!

When: March 29th at 1:00 P.M.

Where: Main Street Books in St. Charles, MO

What: Not only will I be signing copies of Shinobi, the third and final book in the Katana trilogy, but there will be samurai, cupcakes, and SAMURAI! If you ask nicely, I’m sure they’ll be happy to take a photo with you, or cut your head off. I guess it depends on their mood that day.

If you’ve never been to historic St. Charles, there are amazing shops and wineries all located within walking distance from the bookstore. (I got your attention now, didn’t I?)

For more information (and to let me know you’re coming so I know how many head mounts cupcakes to buy) click here. If you’re not on Facebook, you can also let me know you plan to attend by mentioning it in the comments.

SHINOBI Release Day Prize Extravagana!!!

Tomorrow Shinobi, the third and final book in my KATANA trilogy, releases tomorrow!!!


I sorta can’t believe it. When I think about all the hard work, tears, sweat, and blood went into writing these books and getting them published, I’m so excited to be able to share the final story with you, but at the same time mourning the fact that I’ll be moving away from these characters who I’ve grown to love–who are a part of me.

I can say in all honesty, Shinobi is my favorite of the trilogy. This is the book Kirkus calls:

“A swift tale of romance for the young reader with a warrior heart.”

Buy: Amazon | B & N | B-A-M | IndieBound 

I couldn’t be more pleased with that description. The one thing that makes saying farewell to one series is knowing I have so many other projects in the works. Hopefully I’ll be able to tell you all about those soon.

In the meantime, I want to celebrate Shinobi’s release with a book lover’s giveaway! I’m offering a super fun assortment of 7 prizes geared to book lovers. The prizes are as follows:
