Summary from Goodreads:

The end of an Empire, The rise of a Queen

Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory's arrival she will discover she is the long lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.

With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.

Some things are better left in the shadows.

Guest Post:

What is your writing process? For instance, do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first?

So, with my world building, I outline first. This consists of my mad scribblings in a various amount of notebooks, hashing out backstories, history, and where the story will take place. But when it comes to my characters, I write their chapters out, their voices out first, and just write. I try not to overthink anything during this part, and write from my heart, and with the emotions of the characters. After I have my first draft, then I go back and do my rewrites, which is anywhere from 4-6 times. This is where I do my extensions, making sure everything is where I want it to be, before I submit it to Clean Reads. Then start the editing process with my publisher 😊
