DAYBREAK RISING is my first novel, a QUILTBAG-focused fantasy (with a heavy dose of romance) that is set in a world called Esonith. I'm thrilled to announce that DAYBREAK RISING has been offered a new home at Torquere Press with a tentative release date during Autumn [or Spring, if you're in the southern hemisphere like I am) 2016.
“Branded a failure for her last botched mission, 22-year-old Celosia desperately volunteers for the next one: taking down the corrupt Council with a team of her fellow elementally-gifted mages. But with Council spies, uncontrolled magic, and the distraction of unexpected love, Celosia will have to push her abilities to the breaking point to complete the Ember Operative—and finally prove she’s worthy of redemption.”
”Definitely hoping this one gets picked up so I can read the rest.” - Rachel Cotterill, Strange Charm Books
