Happy Release Day! THE SEARCH is Published!!!

Release Day Excitement
It is with great excitement that I announce today that The Search (Book 2 in The Descendant Vampire Series) is published!

Can I get a woo hoo?!?!

Woo Hoo!!!

After I wrote and published The Descendant (book 1 in the series), I wondered if I could do it again. Could I write another book? Writing a book is daunting (book 2 is approximately 63,000 words; book 1 is 85,000) and time consuming and I wondered if I was up to the task. I knew I had to be up to it in order to give my readers closure to the questions I left open in book 1.

I did it! And I’m so excited to share the story with you!

Thank you to all of the readers who have patiently waited for the release of this novel! I hope you enjoy the story and the direction I took with it. You’re going to see a very different Allison and I can’t wait to hear your reaction!

What a Difference a Book Makes
There’s a lot I didn’t know when I published The Descendant and I’ll blog about those experiences later. When The Descendant was released, it was done with very little fanfare...cuz I was clueless! Well things are going to be different for The Search!

Last but not least…
And now for the official business. I know you’ve seen the blurb before, but since this is launch day, I thought it appropriate to post again!

The Search
Allison Carmichael is thirsty for blood and hungry for answers.

Lured away from her illicit extracurricular activities by news about her kidnapped husband, Allison rejoins her adopted family that’s promised to help her find him. Allison's search is detoured, however, by sinister vampire politics, the seeming good will of her fanged family, and the return of her nemesis.  Circumstances unfold that shatter the foundation of her world.

In order to successfully play the game she has been thrust into, Allison must battle loss and betrayal and accept unexpected love.

THE SEARCH is on for answers, but when answers are found, will they be what Allison was looking for?
