For the Birds

Last Friday, I received an exciting email–I was to be featured on the landing page of Smashwords. I have no idea how this happened, but I am not complaining. It’s a lovely, exciting surprise.

Y’all, that’s me. I still can’t wrap my brain around it.

Smashwords is highlighting books about birds this week, and Nine for a Kiss has a raven shifter as a central character. In case you missed me babbling about it, here’s the full post.

But here, I’ll just post the blurb.

Nothing has gone right in Sadie Lyons’s life since the accident, but she’s trying her best to get back to normal. She’s just not sure if the trip to the old apple orchard was the best decision, and the creepy corn maze run by the even creepier owner confirms her fears. Inside, the maze is even worse, and she’s soon lost in a never-ending labyrinth that twists and turns but goes nowhere. 

When a raven joins her as a guide, she feels better, but like the maze, the raven is not what he seems, and the news he brings her changes everything. 

Love and loss intertwine in this tale of the endings and beginnings we all face.

I love this story for many reasons. It’s a little gritty; it’s sexy; it’s reality and fantasy at the same time. (Magical realism is the proper name.)

And winter is the perfect time to curl up with such a story.
