I am so excited to be part of the release day for Tammy Farrell’s sequel to The Darkness of Light.
The Embers of Light – Book 2 in the Dia Chronicles comes out today and it looks fantastic!
Genre: Adult Historical Fantasy
Release Date: January 28th, 2015
The descendants of the ancient gods think they’ve found peace, but the time has come when new magic and ancient powers will collide…
Stripped of his Dia powers and left to rot, Malcolm is a prisoner of Valenia—a sentence he finds worse than death. His thoughts of revenge are the only thing keeping him sane, but when he finally manages to escape, Malcolm discovers that living as a mortal is more dangerous than he ever imagined. After stealing from the wrong man, Malcolm becomes a captive once more, only this time his punishment is one that he won’t soon forget. His only hope of survival is Seren, an enigmatic young girl with golden eyes and a malevolence to match his own.
When he’s led to Mara and Corbin, the two responsible for his fall from grace, their new faction of Dia is in chaos, infiltrated by an ancient power thought to have been banished forever. This only fuels Malcolm’s ruthless ambitions, but he soon realizes that he too is under attack, a pawn in a centuries old game of power and greed. As new battle lines are drawn, Malcolm finds himself in uncharted waters, forced to choose between helping those he’s vowed to destroy or give in to his lingering desire to settle the score.
Debts will be paid, lives will be lost, and no Dia will ever be the same.
By the time the smell of smoke and roasting meat finally reached Malcolm, and his hole in the ground was completely black, he knew the time was drawing near. The sound of laughter and flutes from above stoked the fires of determination within him, while the repetitive drumbeat counted down the minutes.
His mind wandered as he stared sullenly at the walls of black earth. He clutched his mangled hand to his chest, far too weary for anger. He was humiliated. Over and over again he’d been disgraced, robbed, laughed at. The hardest truth to face was that there still might be more degradation to come. He had wanted everything and succeeded at nothing. Hope was now but a whisper in the past, still carried on the winds, but too distant to hear.
Malcolm pressed his head against the soft earth. He had nothing left to lose and nothing left to love. Even his own mother had become an unseen shadow, abandoning him in his time of need. She was useless to him, as she always had been, and he vowed that if she ever showed herself to him again, he would speak any word that might pierce a mother’s soul.

Hello, my lovelies!
Today is the release day for ATHENA’S ASHES, the sequel to THE STAR THIEF! I’m so excited that it’s finally here. I loved continuing Renna’s story and digging deeper into her world, and I hope you all like it as well!
As of right now, Athena’s Ashes is available on all major sites except Amazon US. Evidently they’re still working out a glitch that’s affected a lot of authors. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get your copy! I’ve included links below for everywhere else it’s live. And if Amazon’s your preferred retailer, I’ll let you all know as soon as it’s up!
As part of the blog tour, there are two contests you can enter, too! Make sure to scroll down to the rafflecopter below. You could win paperback copies of the whole series, some fun swag, and even an Amazon gift card!
I’m also hard at work on my next series – a spin off set in the same universe as The Star Thief, but that follows a new group of people working for MYTH. I’m having a ton of fun writing it so far, and I can’t wait to share it with you all when I have a bit more info.
And here’s the info for Athena’s Ashes one last time! I’d love to know if you enjoy the book 🙂
It’s Renna’s biggest job yet – convincing MYTH leadership that she’s put away her lock picks and is ready to save the galaxy, despite the dangerous implant in her brain. But with the Athena on the run, she’s working solo and facing her most ruthless enemy, the traitor Pallas, who’ll go to any lengths to destroy the MYTH organization. Including framing Renna for a devastating assault on MYTH HQ that leaves their defenses crippled and hundreds dead.
Now that MYTH believes she’s a dangerous double-agent, Renna escapes their firing squad before they put more holes in her than a pair of fishnet stockings. But the ticking time-bomb in her head is the one thing Pallas needs to complete his master plan and he’s not about to let her get away. Even worse, he’s discovered the only thing that will bring Renna to her knees – threatening Captain Nick Finn.
Out of time and options, Renna’s got one shot to take down the traitor before he annihilates everything she loves, even though winning this battle may cost her everything.

I’m really excited to be working with the Unofficial Addiction Book Fan club again for the blog tour. They’ve got a great giveaway going on for Athena’s Ashes. Scroll down to the end of the post to enter!
Today should have been an exciting and happy release day for Athena’s Ashes, instead, I’m dealing with an issue with Kindle Direct Publishing’s platform. I’m not the only author affected, and they assure us it’ll be fixed soon, but needless to say, I’m very annoyed.
I always publish early, to make sure something like this doesn’t happen, but unfortunately it appears this time it bit me in the ass. Many of us who’ve published during the same window over the weekend appear to be having this same problem. The book is up everywhere on Amazon EXCEPT the US store. *Shakes head*
But, for the good news? Athena’s Ashes is available EVERYWHERE ELSE! Even Amazon’s international stores. Only the US store is affected. So, if you were going to buy a copy on Nook, or Kobo, or iTunes, go right ahead 🙂
I’m hoping that they’ll have this glitch fixed soon, but in the mean time, there are some great giveaways and posts going on!
The amazing ladies who organized my Star Thief blog tour are back with an even more amazing tour for Athena’s Ashes. Check out my intro post here and make sure to scroll down to the bottom to enter to win a copy of the whole Star Thief Chronicles series and some swag.
There’s another giveaway for the Book Blitz that’s going on, hosted by Xspresso Tours, and you can enter that one here.

I’ll keep you all posted as I know more. I’m so sorry for any inconvenience this is causing. Hopefully everything will be fixed soon!
Hello my friends!
I can’t believe it, but Athena’s Ashes is out in 3 weeks! Eeep! It feels like I was just releasing The Star Thief. But this summer has flown by and it’ll be fall before we know it. I’m not sure whether that makes me excited or makes me want to cry.
In honor of the new release, Goodreads is doing 2 giveaways – one for The Star Thief, and one for Athena’s Ashes. You still have time to enter both if you’d like to win either of these in paperback! I’ve included the widgets below. I’ll even sign it for you if you’d like! 🙂
Good luck if you decide to enter!
Hello my lovelies!
I am so excited – today is the release day for Fortune’s Risk – a Star Thief Novella! It’s finally up on most major retailers (and will hopefully be up on iTunes next week).
To celebrate, I’m giving away an ecopy of both The Star Thief and Fortune’s Risk. Just leave a comment below! (Giveaway ends Friday July 11th at 9am est.)
About Fortune’s Risk:
A thrilling, dangerous adventure, this digital companion novella to Jamie Grey’s The Star Thief features Viktis and Captain Nick Finn, popular characters from the series, and takes place after the events of The Star Thief.
Captain Nick Finn has spent the last seven years trying to escape his drug-running past and become the perfect MYTH soldier. At the peak of his military career, he should be leading missions to capture the galaxy’s most wanted criminals. Instead, he’s stranded on a stolen MYTH ship with Viktis, a notorious pirate and an unlikely ally.
Being on the run from MYTH and trying to keep a low profile is nothing new for Viktis, so he’s happy to set course for bustling Forever Station – the perfect place to restock supplies and squeeze in a little entertainment on the side. But for Viktis, this visit is less about fun and games and more about revenge. Kitty Cordoza, a notorious mob boss and his sister’s killer, has gone all-in on a high-stakes poker game.
Only Finn can help him plant the evidence that the Station’s security needs to put her away for life. But the Queen of Crime has a few tricks up her sleeve, and as they’re about to find out, she’s not going to show her hand until it may be too late to fold.
