Author Interview: Emmy tidning

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.

The author sends the book to their agent who instantly sends it to the publishing company and voila, a book is printed and on the shelf of every bookstore ever. The novel becomes a best[…]

Publishing Plans for 2021

My plan is to publish each novella every three months, starting in March. Told as a story within a story frame, Warrior Tithe is both a pseudo sequel to Tam Lin:[…]

Fantasy Books I Want to Read in 2021
