Second Sight is another term for clairvoyance or ESP, so my Second Sight romance series features stories where the protagonist works as a divination, occult, or alternative therapy specialist. They often use their fortune telling or basic empathy skills to get to the bottom of what their love interest or the antagonist wants. It’s also a play on the fact that the meet-cute is the first meeting, but the second time they see each other is really the one where they start to fall for each other or the stories get interesting. It’s like love at second sight.

Genre: Fantasy Romantic Subplot? Eh. There’s a love triangle of sorts but the author didn’t spend a lot of time developing the romance.

From Blood and Ash by Jennifer Armentrout Genre: FantasySubgenre: I spent most of this book saying, “This is a freaking vampire book.” Romance: This has the most decadently written romance ever. It’s not instalove, at least not on the MC’s part, but it IS insta-lust. Steam? Status:Currently scalded. I thought the sex scenes were scandalously[…]
Junkyard Bargain by Faith Hunter Genre: Science Fiction Subgenre: Dystopian Series: Junkyard Cats #2 Romantic Subplot? It’s complicated. Steam? No sex but there were steamy moments between the mc and her thrall, Jax, who isn’t completely thralled. Like I said, it’s complicated. Plot: Shining Smith is looking for the murderer of her friend and needs[…]
Investing in your indie author business doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Advertisements don’t have to be costly to be effective. All it takes is research and knowing where to place your money where your dollar (or whatever currency you use) is most effective.

Getting reviews, even bad ones, is a good thing. Readers tend to flock to books that are being read and talked about by others.

I am, however, accepting requests for author interviews to promote new releases. Please go to the contact page to request an interview. Do not message me on social media. I’m getting bombarded with pms and[…]
