Hey there Hunters!

I hope you’re having a good YASH this year. I’ve got some pretty things to show you that inspired my novel, Sigil in Shadow, a rags-to-riches-to-ruin story.

Ellary Dane knows she deserves to die

– but not for a crime she didn’t commit.

She believes her 19 year streak of bad luck is over when she accidentally saves the life of a highborn officer and is taken to court to study under the tutelage of the most renowned healer in the kingdom. Suspicions surround her sudden presence, making her more enemies than allies. She soon finds herself ripped from her warm palace sheets and thrown into a dank prison cell.

As nobles vie for their spot on the throne, Ellary learns she is bound to a secret history that could change the kingdom forever. If she is going to break her chains, she must trust the charming stranger labeled as her accomplice and face the lie that pushed her into the silent warfare of highborn society.

To get more of a look into Ellary’s new life at court, click the link below the images.
