Aveline was a brilliant but quiet girl who learned how to speak the secret Birdtongue from her scholarly father, a skill known only by three people in the entire kingdom. Not quite peasant, but not of nobility, she had long accepted the fact that any marriage would require one person or the other to have to “marry down.” So she was content with her studies and immersed herself in the language of the birds. But all that would change when a strange blue bird arrived . . .
Aras was a noble lord. When he became aware of a sorceress’s attempt to usurp the kingdom, she transformed him into a bird. But, as an extra act of cruelty, she left one place where he can be human again—an isolated, out-of-the-way place no one would ever look for . . .
Until the day Aveline found him.
Together, with the aid of three bird princes, Aveline and Aras must save the kingdom from the sorceress. But before they can do so, they must first discover the three things more powerful than despair: courage, hope, and love.
BLUE FEATHERS is scheduled to release at on Monday, August 15, 2016. Get your print or ebook copy from Loconeal Publishing or any of your favorite online retailers.

NOT YOUR NORMAL VAMPIRE NOVEL
BELLEPORTE explores how vampires can function in the modern world and still stay hidden from their enemies.
Though possessed of great powers by night, vampires are helpless by day when they must remain unconscious in their coffins. Belleporte is an East Coast city rich in history dating back to Colonial times. What better place for actual vampires to locate their coffins than in a graveyard near a major university, where they are protected by the fact that so few academics believe in them?
The story involves Myra Holmes, a professor of linguistics who discovers that she is dying. With her life's work on the Oweeran Indian language still unfinished, she searches for an alternative to death. An early encounter with a vampire sinking into his tomb has made her a believer, even though she later denies the experience. Knowing she has nothing to lose, she arranges to return as a vampire and is successful. She awakens to night beauty, which combines the vision of a cat or wolf with human color perception even at night. Unfortunately, impulsive behavior is also enhanced, and she soon discovers that her problems have just begun. A vampire hunter quickly discovers her true identity and a university dean tries to move her office into a "day use only" building. Then with animal rights activists threatening her blood supply, Myra learns that her greatest threat comes from her fellow vampires.
BELLEPORTE is available from Loconeal Publishing for preorder at $14.95 before March 11, 2016. Belleporte is scheduled to release at this year's Cleveland Concoction (March 11-13) at the Sheraton Cleveland Airport Hotel, 5300 Riverside Dr., Cleveland OH 44135.
