This year, 2015, has already been remarkable.  The next installment of Del’s and Marrin’s story, Hell Becomes Her is currently with my editor.  She’s saying some very nice, positive things, which means the book is moving right along in the publishing process. 

Tears of Heaven continues to receive praise from all quarters.  The novel was the winner of the Preditors & Editors Readers Poll for Best Science Fiction & Fantasy Novel and an Epic eBook Award FinalistHell Becomes Her is a much more mature effort by your friendly, neighborhood author.  My Beta team all had great things to say about it, and it reflects some real growth from me as a writer.

Tears of Heaven was originally envisioned as the stand-alone story of Del, a half-angel/half mortal Nephilim who wended and wound her way through history.  In the past, she was a force to be reckoned with, she laughed, and fought, and loved and was filled with joy.  In the present, she’d become bitter, angry and scarred, but she remained as dangerous as ever.  How she transformed, how she grew and continued to grow, is the story of Tears of Heaven.  There was also a lot of sword and gun play.  How she continues to move forward, how she is becoming more than herself and prospering, that’s the story I’ve found in Hell Becomes Her.

I’m sure that I’ll offer this all up again toward the end of the year, but thank you to everyone who has made this all possible.  There are far too many to name, but anyone who follows this blog, anyone who offered me early assistance, and of course, anyone who has read the book—Thank you.

Thanks you.  Thank you.  Thank you!
