Happy New Year & Trilogy cover release

Happy New Year everyone!

I can't even begin to express my thanks to all of you for making 2011 huge for my writing success. All my books have hit Amazon best selling lists, include The Emerald Talisman listed at #6 on the top of Amazon free list and Onyx has become a HUGE hit! Right now, there's 18 five star reviews listed and I've received countless emails from pleased fans, even one with OMG in the title (lol!). I'm relieved everyone loves the end.

I'm also excited to share the cover of the e-book complete trilogy being released in a few days on Amazon and B&N! Isn't it gorgeous???

Today is also the last day to post a review and enter the drawing for the Onyx faux talisman. Don't miss out!

As I reflect, I can't help but remember the hard times and wonderful times. I appreciate all your support and encouragement during my son's open heart surgery. Also, I'm thankful for all the new friends I've made along the way. I can't wait for 2012 and what it has to bring, good and bad.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Happy New Year! See you in 2012!

Hugs, Brenda

So here it is: the pre-order print of books for The Onyx Talisman with matching bookmark!

"Alora looked back and the corner of her lip turned up. “It’s always darkest before the dawn, Julia. Good luck.”
Her words sent chills up my spine as she vanished. "

Unrest stirs deep in Scotts Valley. Filled with uncertainty, Julia anxiously awaits Nicholas’ return. Phil, hurt and unsure of his place as a sober vampire, holds the pieces of Julia’s fragile psyche together, secretly hoping Nicholas stays away forever. Scarlett bides her time, plotting for the perfect moment to prove herself and earn redemption. But somewhere in L.A., Alora conspires to reclaim her talisman and strip Julia of everything she holds dear.

Little do they know, a war is coming and more than one vampire would like to see the Prince of Vampires overthrown. As more and more vampires show up from nowhere, addicted to her scent, Julia must pick her allies carefully before it’s too late. Can Julia bargain with fate? When the time comes, will she even have a choice? Find out how it all ends in this explosive grand finale of The Talisman Trilogy.

The Onyx Talisman comes in 6 days

I wanted to give a quick exciting update. Yes! The Onyx Talisman will be available through Amazon/Kindle and B&N/Nook Friday, December 16th and I just have to say, my team ROCKS! Without their dedication and help, it wouldn't have happened. Donna Wright, Kristie Cook, Lisa Sanchez, Lisa Langdale, Nicole from Books Complete Me and Jaime from Two Chicks. Muah!

I can't believe the day is almost here and I am so nervous! The pressure to deliver a satisfying ending is... HUGE! I've bit down my nails, worn off my fingerpads  and forked out quite a lot in nanny money to make this date. And I hope it will be worth it. Anyway, there's still last minute things to do, so I'm not talking on here long. I'll be sending out a newsletter the minute it's available. Sign up here: to receive it.

Thanks everyone for all the lovely well wishes and prayers for my family. Missing a deadline hurt like heck and I'm glad you all were so kind to me. My son's heart is doing awesome and he's running around faster than the rest of us now. Modern medicine is absolutely incredible.

And actually, this book is dedicated to YOU!

Thank you.... sniff.

Hugs x a million,


PS. Physical books will be available online sometime January 2012. A presale will be posted Friday, the 16th for those who want signed copies!
