Sick and Tired, but editing away!

So I've finished the second book in the "Eyes of the Witch" series (IN YOUR EYES was the first book). Now I'm editing away and hoping that you'll like it as much as you did the first story of Renna and Cass. This second book adds more dimension to their relationship as well as lots more adventures and trials.

I've got the flu, or something like it, and its really hitting me hard. Hope the rest of you are healthy and happy and reading away on your Kindle! What a great invention. I love my Kindle Fire. I'm currently reading Death Comes to Pemberly by PD James. It's awesome, a great sequel to Pride & Prejudice, one of my favorites of all time.

If you haven't read IN YOUR EYES, please check it out on If you have read it, please go back and leave me a review. Much appreciated!

Coretta Scott King quote

"Freedom from discrimination based on sexual orientation is surely a fundamental human right in any great democracy, as much as freedom from racial, religious, gender, or ethnic discrimination.” ~Coretta Scott King

Excerpt from IN YOUR EYES

I could feel the electricity dancing on my tongue. I opened the window wide to let the sweet air blow on my skin and hair. There was a smile on my face for the first time in a long time. Lightning lit the sky in the distance. It would be a big storm, and a good one. ~Renna Amiru, Weather Witch

Kindle Fantasies Author Interview!

Yep, I'm getting out there! Hope you'll check out my latest interview about IN YOUR EYES at  The guys were great at Kindle Fantasies and fast, too! If you haven't purchased my book, now is the time to buy! I'm going to be giving 10% of all author royalties to charity -- haven't chosen which one yet, I'm doing a query on Facebook to see what my readers want the money to go. So far STOP Teenage Suicide is winning. So check out my FaceBook page, too, and answer the question if you'd like to log in your choice, or just to leave a message! My FaceBook name is Buddhangela.

Pumping up a dreary day

Well, its rainy and cold outside, so no jogging today, and no Zumba class, so I've got to get the energy flowing myself. I just finished writing an author interview with Kindle Fantasy so that'll get me some free and somewhat painless marketing going! I'll post as soon as the interview has been published so you can read more about me and the book I'm marketing now, IN YOUR EYES. So far I've had lots of free sample downloads, so the sales are surely on their way.

It's hard, this marketing thing. You have to Tweet and Facebook and send out letters to other places that  might be interested. It's not the kind of energy I want to be using when what I really want to do is get my sequel written and ready to publish - but it must be done! So if you haven't yet checked out my book, please do so. I had to jump through some hoops to get the paperback and ebook linked on but it's done now which is awesome. Not sure why they weren't linked in the first place, but anyway...

Pump it up! Time for some jazzy music, probably Pink and my faves from her albums. Did you hear she's got a new single out? I'm psyched about that, since she's been doing baby stuff and I wasn't expecting to have any new music out of her for a while. Thank goodness it isn't lullabies!

Well, off to write on my sequel. Hope all of  you have a great day planned and some wonderful weather to add to it. I'm sitting looking out the window at a gray sky. But it'll get better. Tomorrow it's supposed to warm up. Thank the Source!

IN YOUR EYES description

Renna has been a cast-off all her life because of her forbidden talents as a weather witch. She is found out by a witch who sees her black eyes- the sign that one of the realm is a witch- and is rescued after years of suffering by this passing army. Her life is forever changed. Renna's skills and abilities, instead of being a liability to her family, become an immediate asset to the army. Before she knows it she finds herself with a central role in a major mission conceived by the General - the leader of the Free Counties. To make matters more complicated, Renna is enamored by a Lieutenant who is both beautiful and charming. While studying the ways of magic in the company of new friends and true love, Renna finds that she is much more powerful and worthy than she'd ever thought possible.

Sound like a good story? I got my first review on and it was for 5-stars -- so check it out! You won't regret it. And stay warm - this cold is bitter and it's making me tense. Tense means difficult writing, and I'm working hard to write the sequel to IN YOUR EYES! Please comment and send me your thoughts! Love ya'll!
