Speaking of gardens, I’d like to announce my New Release – Mary, Mary. Raven Birchfield has moved into her deceased eccentric aunt’s house with her mother and younger brother. While planting a flower in her overgrown yard for her high school horticulture class, she hears a voice calling out the name Mary from a nearby graveyard. And when she uncovers an old book of nursery rhymes in the ground as well as a crystal necklace, her life takes a wicked twist. Nursery rhymes are really about past events in history and most of them are very horrid. So when Raven gets pulled into the body of Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, she not only enters Mary’s world but can hear Mary’s psychopathic thoughts that are taking control of her own mind and filtering into her everyday life at school. Can Raven fight temptation when her heartthrob Dex Campbell has finally taken notice of her, or will she turn to Mary’s wicked ways instead?mary2500

This is the first of my Gnarled Nursery Rhymes Young Adult Series – a book that can be enjoyed by any age. It is also a Golden Palm Contest Finalist! Get a copy of Mary, Mary, for free through April 10th, or for only 99 cents afterwards. And watch for Muffet – Book 2, coming soon!

Gardening Tip: I love to garden and would love to share a tip with you that has worked wonderfully for me. Adding coffee grounds to your compost or around your plants will give them a boost. You can strengthen your roses, add blue color to your hydrangeas, and get rid of garden pests like slugs by putting a ring of coffee grounds around the plant. Try it!

Another of my books that has to do with gardening is The Duke and the Dryad: Book 2 – Earth, from my Elemental Series. Rae-Nyst is an elemental of the earth and can control nature – but not Duke the Destroyer who threatens everything she believes in.

dragonlordbox300 I’d also like to announce the release of my new paranormal boxed set Dragon Lords and Amazons. This book features The Dragon and the DreamWalker: Book 1 – Fire, from my Elemental Series and Thief of Olympus from my Greek Myth Fantasy Series.  For a limited time you can get this boxed set for only 99 cents!

Along with the Authors in Bloom contest, I am having a contest of my own. I am offering a prize of a gardening basket that includes a signed print copy of my small town contemporary romance, Doubting Thomas from my Tarnished Saints Series. Since I mentioned coffee earlier in my gardening tip, it also includes a $10 Starbucks giftcard, as well as a basket full of fun things you can use in your garden. Enter through the rafflecopter below.basket200

  1. Is it weird that I don’t want to be an element? I’d rather not try to control or alter nature. She does a pretty awesome job all by herself.

  2. Air, because I love windy days, but would be nice to control just how much. Thanks for the gardening tip. I have floundering blueberries, so I’m hoping a little coffee this year might perk them up. cchant86 @ yahoo.com

  3. I would like to be able to control water because it is necessary for all life. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  4. air.i like it when theres wind but not like today.way too windy i had to retrieve our recycling bin from out in the field.

  5. Air, because air currents can control weather patterns and can move water and earth.
    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  6. I’d control air because it’s all around you and I wouldn’t need to seek it out or be near “it” as it’d be right there!! 😉
