 Can two people forge a future when their secret pasts collide?

 As Christmas nears, Ainslie Avalon-Bennett works hard to hide her Crazy Girl past.

Then she meets Thor Grael, a dragon shaman who spikes her pulse and calms her OCD. But will Ainslie lose him once he discovers her past? Or will Thor’s deadly secret be their undoing?

Small Press Red Flags

Small presses can offer authors several advantages, including personal access to the owner, niche book buying, author networking, professional book covers, editing, and copy editing. They can be a good ground floor entry into publishing. Some small publishers have demonstrated marked success, such as Sourcebooks, which has grown into the 10th largest US publisher, and Riptide Publishing, a LGBTQ press, which has recently produced Rita-nominated books.

SpellCheck_ebook_500x750But the recent unexpected demise of a few independent publishers, including Samhain, reminds authors to be wary. My Teen Wytche Saga was originally published by a then newly launched small press. Through the publisher, I met authors with whom I have enduring friendships. The original editor and cover artist for the Teen Wytche Saga remain valued members of my Indie-publishing team.

But there were several red flags. I have listed some of them here. I urge authors considering signing with a small press to also read Gina Burgess’s excellent article, “Beware These Red Flags That Wave Over Some Publishers.

Fortunately, my former publisher weathered her mistakes, and in some ways learned and improved. Although I remain grateful for my small press experience, I was relieved when my rights reverted back to me.

The Good News: A Small Publisher to Watch

At different times during last July’s Romance Writers of America National Conference, I heard a few highly successful authors and one movie publisher mention Jane Porter’s Tule Publishing. Ms. Porter has built a solid speaking and best-selling writing career. Word of mouth is that her publishing house is very author friendly. I for one, have added Tule to my publishing goals.

Fantasy Book Release from Ariella Moon

TheAmberElixir_500x750

I am pleased to announce that the first follow-up to THE BELTANE ESCAPE is here!

“First follow-up?” you may wonder. Yes! While writing the Two Realms Trilogy, I realized the world I was creating required a parallel line of novellas told from the magical folks’ point of view. Hence, THE AMBER ELIXIR, an Arthurian tale of magic, shape-shifters, and the quest to win back a forbidden love. Meet the Lady of the Lake, Merlin, and Morgan le Fay as you have never seen them before.

The novella (204 print pages), leads into the upcoming second book in the trilogy, THE VIKING MIST (available in 2018). So if you love Arthurian lore, powerful sorceresses, jealous wizards, and origin tales, click any of the links below to learn more about THE AMBER ELIXIR.

About Ariella Moon

 Ariella Moon spent her childhood dreaming of flying to rooftops and searching for a magical wardrobe that would transport her to Narnia. Extreme math anxiety, and taller students that mistook her for a leaning post, marred her youth. Despite these horrors, she graduated summa cum laude from the University of California at Davis. Now Moon draws upon her experiences as a shaman to create magical Young Adult fiction. Her series include The Two Realms Trilogy, a medieval Scotland and Fairy fantasy adventure, and The Teen Wytche Saga, a series of sweet contemporary paranormal romances. Moon’s “Covert Hearts” appears in Second Chances: A Romance Writers of America Collection. She lives a nearly normal life doting on her extraordinary daughter, two shamelessly spoiled dogs, and a media-shy dragon.
