What’s Up: If you pre-ordered my book, FIRE AND CINDER, through Apple Books, then you may see a two-day delay in receiving your book. So you’ll get it Thursday, February 25th instead of Tuesday, February 23rd.
Why It’s Happening: Apple’s most recent operating system update renders Mac computers incompatible with iTunes Producer, which is the tool we indies use to upload books. Guess what I downloaded? Yup, the new OS. Apple came up with a workaround using a website, but there’s now a long conga line of folks waiting for their books to be processed. FIRE AND CINDER may have to wait its turn. Or not. But I want to give y’all a heads up.
My Take: Having worked for Microsoft in my old day job, I know that software glitches happen. Apple is such a great partner in terms of supporting independent creative folks like me. They’ll fix it fast, I’m sure. So, it’s all good.

Meet the Magicorum: modern folks who are supernaturally locked into fairy tale life templates. For eighteen-year-old Elle, that role is Cinderella. Meanwhile, Agatha is her evil stepsister. Things go downhill from there…
Cinderella On The Run
Elle—never call her Cinderella—has found the love of her life in Alec Le Charme, the prince of a jewelry dynasty. But when Alec gets spirited away, Elle must ditch her Manhattan home for the perilous Faerie Lands. To save Alec, Elle must also swap her glass slippers for a flying carpet. But will switching templates from Cinderella to Aladdin snap Elle’s sanity?
Whatever. Bring on the straight jacket. Elle is one Cinderella who’s determined to save her prince, no matter what.
Evil Stepsister or Elf Queen?
Agatha always accepted her role as Elle’s evil stepsister. Then her life template changes from nasty sibling to evil elf queen. Agatha has one thought on that score. Thanks but no thanks. Agatha refuses the regal life, even though stepping away from her crown means ignoring her lifelong attraction to the elf prince, Jacoby.
Then everything changes. Agatha discovers that Elle’s life is at risk… and the only way to save her Cinderella is by teaming up with Jacoby. Trouble is, that’s a lot of togetherness. Working with Jacoby could easily end in disaster, not only for Agatha’s heart, but also for Elle and Alec’s lives.
