And today is special because today is the release of The Guardians book trailer! To celebrate, I’m giving away stuff, but first, here’s the video:
In the final moments of Flight of Blue, Kai Williams discovers all the Guardians including his parents have been lured inside time bubbles where minutes tick by so slowly, they don’t realize they are trapped. While trying to find a way to free them, Kai is stalked by a mysterious figure called the Dream Walker who attacks Kai while he’s sleeping and is bent on getting an object–a small skeleton key–away from him. Kai goes to his friends for help to keep the Dream Walker at bay and find a way to free the Guardians. Together they discover clues that lead them on a quest for the secret cabinet of the ancient sorceress Belladonna and the powerful
object she hid away before her disappearance, an object that will break the time bubbles and release the Guardians. Pursued by Name Monsters who have teamed up to fight them, will Kai and his friends be able to outwit the forces arrayed against them and free the Guardians? And will Kai be victorious in the war being waged for his mind while he dreams?
A cursed traffic light. A rip in the fabric of the world. A possum sorcerer injured on a quest for revenge.
Kai and Ellie embark on a journey to return the sorcerer to his home. Entangled in events that could destroy the world, Kai must choose whether to accept the role he was born to play, but isn’t sure he wants.

I’m thrilled to have S.M. Boyce here today. Boyce is the author of the Grimoire Trilogy. I’ve read the first book, Lichgates, and loved it! I’m eagerly awaiting the release of Treason, this fall. In her guest post today, Boyce talks about her journey to self-publishing, and the Indie Author Index she’s created. So without further ado, I give you, Boyce!
When I started researching self-publishing last year, I had no idea what I was doing. I was like that meme with the scientist dog. Yes, even with the glasses.
All my research at the time focused on blog hopping and learning bits here and there. I spent weeks debating as to whether indie was better than traditional. I hung out on J. A. Konrath’s blog a lot, visited various independent publishers, and watched forums. I was a lurker, but I didn’t feel I could contribute to the conversation.
