What’s Up Wednesdays!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

Hi guys! We’ve decided to start updating here weekly with three separate posts: Sunday News – Updates on our writing, our publishing schedule, promotions, etc. May include word count bragging or self-flagellation. What’s Up Wednesdays – What the Darksbanes are up to in a post. Personal updates, fun stuff, anything goes really. Fandom Fridays – Fan art, character info, in-character posts, and maybe even the occasional short story. Basically, stuff for fans of our series to enjoy. In addition to these three weekly blog posts, we’re going to start updating the Newsletter monthly on the first in addition to release announcements. […]

New Site, New Logo!

Another rainy day in Florence… But I love the rain. Today is a fun day for us at the Darksbane house. 🙂 Anna’s wrapping up the third Steel & Steam novella as we speak (She’ll finish today), and I’m editing it behind her. Tomorrow, we’re going to be re-outlining Risen and finalizing it so I can continue writing it without running into issues and getting lost. We meant to have this done already, but the holidays really took it out of us this year. Yes, that means Dakota is coming soon. 😉  As soon as we finish Risen’s outlining, Anna’s […]

NaNoWriMo GO!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog, Events, Updates

This is going to be a busy month at the Darksbane house! We’re finishing up revisions on a novel we’ll be debuting this month, working on cover art, and writing up a storm on a pair of novellas for a secret project we’ll be announcing soon! Since I was going to be writing hardcore this month anyway, I decided to sign up for NaNoWriMo and go all the way! While Anna has her own motivators, I like my visuals. So I made myself a calendar widget from the NaNo site and I thought I’d display it here for you guys! […]

Sci Fi & Fantasy, but with lesbians.

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in About the Authors, Books

I am so excited about the upcoming release of Thrall: Beyond Gold and Glory by Barbara Ann Wright, my favorite author of lesbian fantasy. She announced that the book was available today and I scurried over to Amazon to find it on pre-order for September 14th. Darn it! I really wanted that book now! 🙂 But it’s for the best. I’m so busy writing the next installment to the Dakota Shepherd series (this one is a short story to hold you all over until the release of book 3) and working on the cover art for the debut release of […]

Hunted is Now Available!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Book Announcements, Books, Updates

Ready for more Dakota? Hunted is now available at Amazon.com and Kindle Unlimited! Dakota Shepherd is such a newb: newly Awakened, rookie werewolf, supernatural investigator in training. Her command of the wolf inside is shaky at best, and her grasp of the unstable magic she wields is worse. She sure has a lot to learn about her new life in the supernatural world. So why would anyone want to stalk her? A trespasser in pack territory. Blood on the mountain. An urban legend, spoken only in whispers. Can Dakota rise to the challenge of a deadly foe? There’s no shame […]
