Shadow & Smite and everything nice

Happy release day! To celebrate, I’m sharing a map of the Isles of Fae!

This project has officially gone from my development goals of “I want to build a fae court system around islands” to thisβ€”a map and a book. This world is my playground, and this map inspires me every day. Shadow & Smite is only the beginning.

So without further ado, it’s finally time to introduce the Isles of Fae.

Welcome to The Isles of Fae

It’s been a while. And there’s so much to say. The Isle of Fae is ready for reveal.

Where to begin. This project is the biggest thing I’ve attempted. I’m working on two series. There’s a breathtaking map I can’t wait to show you. This is a world brimming with romantic adventures.

Shadow & Smite is ready for an August release.

This is the first book in an epic quartet following the adventures of Ayla and Zayne. When I first plotted this project, I looked at my plan and thought “if I can pull this off I’m going to be so proud of myself.” And apparently, I am proud (and that’s a very scary for me to say before a release. But hey, I’m trying to trust myself.)

I can’t wait for this to reach you. I hope you love it as much as I do.

A necromancer holds the strings to my sister’s soul. By rescuing her, I’ll save the Shadow Court.

I have a plan. It’s a longshot, but it is the best I have. I’ll draw the attention of undead Shades. The Shades however pursue someone else: Ayla, a beautiful fae I dismissed too quickly. Turns out, there’s something special about herβ€”I just don’t know what it is.

I’m on the run, fleeing to the Isles of Fae. As a part-fae bastard, I want to escape my past. Maybe I’ll learn the truth of my heritage or find the Firewolf I see in my visions. I’m going. And nothing can derail meβ€”at least until Zayne ruins everything.

Because of him, I am branded by Shades. Now a gray blemish grows on my chest. With time, it will bind my soul, kill me, and raise me as an undead. I didn’t escape just to be slain.

Zayne has a remedy, one he will shareβ€”if we save his sister from a necromancer.

My options are limited, and I join his quest. Only I have secrets, and I don’t trust him. Yet every time he heals my brand, he touches my bare skin. With his palm pressed to my heart, I’m drawn closer to him.

There’s no denying the fire between us. Or the obstacles. As my brand and feelings grow, I realize escape was a terrible plan.
