Forged by Sacrifice ARC Reviews

I’ve been reading excerpts from the first two + chapters each night since October 12th on my Facebook author page. Have you caught any of the live events? I have a couple more planned. Here’s the link to one.


If you like my author page, you’ll get the notifications from Facebook when I go live.

Speaking of live, I’m going to be LIVE with Kathryn Nolan on release day (Oct. 22nd) in her group, Kathryn’s Hippie Chicks. I’ll be there at 7:00 p.m. EDT (4:00 PDT). Come check us out because I can guarantee you Kathryn will ask me something that will be embarrassing, and you can see me blush, roll my eyes, and laugh nervously.

Before I list an amazing giveaway and HOT, HOT books that are coming out at the end of this month, I wanted to remind you of all the Forged by Sacrifice things going on:

Ya’ll… I’m just… overwhelmed by all the love and support YOU the readers, the bloggers, and other author friends have given to the release of this book. Seriously makes me sooooo emotional and weepy. The hubby has been drying tears for days.

Plus, everyone has been asking when Dani (Mac’s sister) is getting her own book. Gah – author happiness right there. To know that people want more of a character you created. Her story is the next one up AFTER Truck’s story. You can add his story, Avenged by Love, as well as her story, Damaged Desires, to your TBR.

Oh, before I forget, GUARDED DREAMS is ON SALE right now through 10/22/19 in the US and UK for a $1 off the normal eBook price.

Okay…. I think that’s it about Forged and the Anchor Novels.


Holy gadzooks, Erika Kelly has the title for the next book in The Bad Boyfriend books. Did you see it? And guess what?
