I’m happy to announce that Stolen, coming soon from Parliament House Press, is now available on Goodreads! It’s mostly just skin and bones at the moment, but you can add it to your to-read shelf. Just in time for the new year!
Y’all know I’m a huge fan of audiobooks. I’ve listened to several of them on my commute this year, from Stephen Kong’s IT to The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. So I was super pleased to find out that my awesome publisher, Radiant Crown Publishing, wanted to publish The She-Wolf of Kanta in audiobook format too!
I’m happy to announce that Kyra McFarland will be narrating the audiobook, and I honestly couldn’t be happier! She has a wonderful voice and does excellent voices to match the sound of the characters. I’m looking forward to hearing her bring my characters to life.

So yes, I’m running behind on NaNoWriMo again, but this time I have a very good reason for it! I’m very proud to announce that after looking for a home for over two years, Stolen has finally been picked up for publication!
The digital ink is just drying on the contract, but Stolen has been picked up by the amazing folks at Parliament House Press. I forget how I found them, but I absolutely loved their aesthetic and their covers are simply gorgeous. I’ve followed their line for several months now and all of their titles are so intriguing! According to their site, they’re trying to be the Guillermo del Toro of indie publishing world, and their title listing and range of styles really proves that. Run by the role model Shayne Leighton, who has had a hand in multiple areas of the entertainment industry, they’ve got an impressive list of upcoming books.
Here’s a quick run-down:
- There will be ebook, audiobook, paperback, and hardback copies. Omg hardback… definitely a first for me!
- Yes, it will be distributed, and according to a friend of mine who works in a Barnes and Noble, it’s a distributor that they work with regularly.
- It’s Book 1 of a YA Fantasy series. Only the first book has been signed right now, so that gives me motivation to finish up the other two books!
- Yes, I am super excited! Can’t you tell?
Here’s the rundown of what Stolen is all about!
Shaleigh is tired of dealing with her father. To escape from the delusions he lives in, she explores condemned buildings with her best friend. But when she is kidnapped by a creature who carries her atop a flying bicycle into another world, she realizes how much her father needs her, and is determined to get back home.
In a kingdom known as The Garden where minotaurs pull carriages and lion statues work as librarians, Madam Cloom and her faerie servant Teagan rule over the land with incredible but terrifying magic. Shaleigh must prove that she is the reincarnation of a long dead ruler, not because she believes it to be true, but because it’s her only chance at survival. By befriending Teagan’s ex-boyfriend, Talek, who has a plan to get her out, Shaleigh thinks she has outwitted everyone. She’ll do anything to get home and that might be her biggest mistake.
I love the community that Parliament House Press has and even though I’ve just signed with them, they’ve all welcomed me with open arms. I can’t wait to get this book out and into the world!
