The Artemis Rising e-book is now live under the Ever-Sea Press imprint!

My contract is up with my awesome e-publisher, Spirehouse Books, and it's time for me to make my way into the publishing world as a free-born indie author! My time with Spirehouse Books has been a one-of-a-kind experience. We launched Artemis Rising in September 2011 and focused on a new thing called e-book cards. They exploded into a new venture for Lucas Beechinor, Spirehouse Books publisher. His caters to other authors who want to try out ebook cards for themselves. It's been a grand adventure, and I'm so grateful I got to be a part of it. We've seen a lot of changes in the publishing industry--readers and authors alike. Some changes have been awe-inspiring--indie authors making the New York Times Bestseller list and tools like Jutoh and Draft2Digital that are making it easier than ever to publish. And some changes have been disastrous--traditional publishers gobbling up vanity presses to make a buck, the loss of likes, tags, and author reviews on Amazon, and traditional publishers and agents giving authors incredibly poor contract terms. Here's hoping the future remains bright with possibilities. One thing's certain, the changes will keep coming. It's best we try to keep up, so we don't get left behind! If you haven't picked up your copy of Artemis Rising yet, you can find it at the sites below. Feel free to watch the book trailer or read the description below to learn more about this love story based on mythology.

The Story
It is 1898 in the Azores, nine forgotten islands of magic, mystery and mythology. Since birth, Azorean Eva Maré has been fated to take on the name and tragic life of Arethusa, a Greek nymph who is turned to water after the river god Alpheus falls in love with her.
But when she accepts her new name she learns at once that the river god she is to give herself to is none other than Diogo, the son of a rich ship owner, and his obsession for Eva is frightening. When Eva is rescued by Tristan, an Azorean orphan, she finds herself drawn to him despite the overwhelming obstacles between them. But Tristan has a destiny of his own, one that leads him toward another girl, another life, and another tragic end. Will Eva reach Tristan before he loses his life to a cruel twist of fate? Will Tristan save Eva from a fate worse than death at the hand of Diogo? Destined to be with Diogo yet hoping against hope that she will win Tristan's love, Eva must somehow choose between them, or fate will choose for her.
