Fandom Fridays: Character Inspiration

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Blog

Heyo Darksbane Fans! This inaugural edition of Fandom Fridays will be particularly for the Dakota fans! In this post, I’m going to share with you guys some of the photos we’ve used for inspiration for the Dakota series characters over the years.  We’ll start with Dakota, Amorie, and Raelya. 🙂 If you guys like this, I’ll do some more in the coming weeks! DISCLAIMER: We do not own any of these photos, nor do we claim these are photos of our characters. These are just random images from Google searches that looked similar to what we had in our heads […]

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! […]

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.

Hunted Cover Reveal

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

I am happy to present to you, the cover of Hunted, book 2 of Auralight Codex: Dakota Shepherd 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 […]
