THE CATALYST Update – December 22

Happy Winter Solstice one day late! While the Bevans (and the Moores) were in the woods paying tribute to the new season, I was working with my cover artist and formatter to put the finishing touches on ebook formatting and paperback cover art. I’m still waiting on these last changes, which still might need tweaking. With only a week left in the year this simply isn’t enough time. So, I’m sorry to report this book will not be published this year. I worked very hard to make it happen, but so much of the final stage is out of my control.

I do have a date though. Expected publication for THE CATALYST is January 16, 2017.

I can can give you something else, too. The book’s blurb. :)

THE CATALYST
Book Four of The Alignment Series

Trey returns from another visit to the Moore estate with nothing but more anger and less room in his head to stow it. Old coping mechanisms no longer work. Not with a newborn in the mix. And Liv, who’s had enough.

Liv has found what’s missing: a memento of her past she’s worked hard to forget. It unearths memories of a different man—a stable partner, a loving father. As it draws her in, Trey’s new anger drives her away.

Desperate to find Liv, Trey digs into his arsenal of magic for a dark power he’s never used. He shouldn’t use—he has to use. What he doesn’t expect is who that power lures: a visitor, with answers for Liv, complications for Trey, and a claim on their daughter almost as threatening as the Moores’. And what that power creates: a weapon, perfectly crafted to target all who share his blood. A vulnerability placed upon their daughter. And the perfect way for the Moores to destroy them all.

COMING IN JANUARY 2017

THE CATALYST Update – August 28

I’m almost finished with my revisions. Starting today I’m taking a break to get some distance from the book before I go back in for the final changes. I also started working on the back cover blurb. It’s coming together, one version morphing into another until I finally have a version I can work with. I have less than a month before the manuscript is due to my editor.
