Coming 2023: Shadow Hawk

I come to you today with an exciting announcement I’ve been keeping under wraps for quite a while: my next book release! It’s probably not one you were expecting. I wasn’t, either. It just kind of snuck up on me while I was too busy watching the horror show the world had become when the pandemic hit. But it’s one that has been at the back of my mind for years. Now that it’s finished, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Get ready, because later this year, the Shadows are coming back. SHADOW HAWK will be the 5th installment of the Blood & Shadows series, and will be followed by at least one more full-length novel. This one is a… Read More »Coming 2023: Shadow Hawk

Now Available and Coming Soon

Greetings and salutations! It’s been a while since I have blogged here, or anywhere, for that matter. That’s very much on purpose. I made a conscious decision to slow down this year, stop pushing myself. Why? Because I seem to be experiencing a serious case of burnout. And it’s not so much from writing, or publishing, but all the rest of it. The constant pressure to promotepromotepromote, market a bit, then promote some more. That’s not why I became a writer. It’s a necessary part of the publishing process, but it poisons the joy I get from creating new stories and sharing them with the world, and the more I have to do it, the less I want to write.… Read More »Now Available and Coming Soon

Ragnarok is Coming. Soon…

Geez, Aly, way to bury the lead there… Nah, I made you all wait long enough. 😉 In case you missed it in the video, Prince of Deceit has an official release date: December 21, 2020. I hope you’re ready, because the end of this saga is going to get dark, bloody, and intense. And I didn’t realize it when I set the date, but it’s eerily fitting for this particular book. You see, December 21 is the day of the winter solstice, or Midwinter. It marks the longest night of the year, the end of the dark and the beginning of the return of the light. The dawn of a new age, so to speak. If you remember that… Read More »Ragnarok is Coming. Soon…

Authorly Update and Freebies

Greetings fellow Earthlings! I come to you with news and updates on the goings on in realm Donnelly.  First and foremost, I hope you’re all healthy and safe, wherever you happen to be around the globe. My state has issued a “Shelter in Place” order this week. Currently, it’s in place until April 7th, 2020, but I’m already hearing rumors that it may be extended longer. It’s a scary proposition but, given the news coming out of countries who imposed strict quarantines and those who didn’t, I think it’s the right move, and I sincerely hope it helps stop the spread of COVID-19.  My family and I are among the lucky ones. We’re all safe, healthy, and still employed, working… Read More »Authorly Update and Freebies

Next Rebel Up!

Prince of Deceit marked the completion of the Dawn of Ragnarok series and with “The End” written at last, the time has come to move on to the next. This is where I announce the next story on my To Be Written list: REBEL HEART, the fourth novella to join the Rebel Court series. This one has been teasing my brain with glimpses into a steamy and complicated relationship between Graeme Iskander and Isabelle Grayson-LeRue for months. I’m so excited to finally get it started! As I mentioned at the completion of Sweetest Kiss, I will no longer be sending out the Rebel stories by chapters, but I wanted to start off the New Year right, so I am sharing… Read More »Next Rebel Up!

Finding my Voice in 2019

PODCAST INTERVIEW So, I did a thing… A few days ago I was asked to do an interview and live podcast for Lauretta Kehoe’s Authors Corner. It wasn’t supposed to happen until a week or two down the road but she had a last minute opening in her schedule so, with very short notice, I ended up live on air last evening. My very first time doing anything like this. Not stressful at all (she says shuddering with residual anxiety). The link above will take you to the written interview. Click here to listen to the recorded podcast where I share some tidbits about my books, Prince of Deceit, and what I have planned next. AUTHOR READING As if the one-hour interview wasn’t enough talking for… Read More »Finding my Voice in 2019

Teaser from Prince of Deceit

I had planned to wait until later to share this, but am apparently incapable of the slightest smidgen of patience. So here is a teaser from my next planned release, Prince of Deceit. 🙂 Enjoy! (Yes, that is my voice narrating.)
