LET’S GET STARTED!
WHAT SHE DOESN’T KNOW COULD GET THEM ALL KILLED.
Loti Dupree’s healing powers could change the nature of life itself, and she doesn’t even know it. But 500-year-old vampire Wolf Arrighi does. He’s been living outside the boundaries of his own kind, seeking her for centuries, and when their worlds finally collide, the passion ignited between them is more than either bargained for.
Together, their powers become something entirely new–and entirely dangerous. The sudden surge of elemental magic attracts an ancient evil hell-bent on nothing less than the utter destruction of humankind. And they’ve just handed him the key. One by one, the people they love become casualties, and Loti and Wolf are in a desperate race against time to fight an epic battle that could cost them not just their lives, but their very souls
ENLIGHTENED IS ON SALE OCTOBER 13 – 17, 2019 FOR ONLY 99 CENTS!
HE SURRENDERED HIS SOUL TO THE DEVIL. SHE MAY BE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN GET IT BACK.
More than a century ago, Christian Harris gave up everything in a last desperate attempt to finally have the revenge that had consumed him. The vampire that turned him promised him wealth, power, and the revenge he most wanted. But Christian found no satisfaction in his final triumph, and he wanted nothing more than to disappear into the depths of darkness and forget everything he hadn’t done right– and everyone he couldn’t save.
But when he’s brought before his Master and sent on a mission to seduce Heather Macgregor, he finds himself captive to the untrained red-headed witch who wakes him to buried longings and something he never expected: hope. In her bed, he finds passion without boundaries and in her heart, redemption. But Heather also unwittingly provides him with the key to his Master’s obsession, the Light Walker Loti Dupree.
Now a pawn in a dangerous game, Christian must make an impossible choice: save the one who saved his soul and condemn the World to darkness or save the world and forever lose the only love he’s ever known.

Did y’all know I use the phases of the moon to set goals, run my business, and build my empire
Okay, so maybe it sounds a little wack-a-do, but really, it works. It’s a little dash of magic and little smidge of common sense. See, the moon cycles through eight phases throughout the month, from New Moon to Full and back again. Those phrases have a lot to teach us about how to organize our time.
The Moon Has a Lot to Teach Us
The moon also has a lot to teach us about setting goals, letting go of what’s not working, and trusting that there will be another chance. I don’t believe we only get one chance in this life at anything. I know there’s this fear if we don’t take advantage of an opportunity it will never come around again.
But the moon tells a different story.
First Four Phases
Four of her phases teaches us about growth: new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous. We plant seeds of intention with the new moon and work toward growing that intention into full bloom, the full moon.
BUT then comes the letting go. A flower is not the end fo the process, see. After the full bloom, comes the fertilization and then comes the fruit, right?
Second Four Phases
So think of the next four phases as the fertilization and the fruiting: full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, and waning crescent. This half of the lunar cycle reminds us that some things need to be released in order for new things to take shape. The flower petals die so the fruit can grow.
That’s the very basics. I use the phases of the moon to organize my time during the month, when I create when I relax, and when I do the business backend work. From a practical standpoint, it means everything gets addressed every month.
And when feel time-crunched and anxious about something getting done, the moon cycle always reminds there’s always next month. It’s helped me ask the question: what absolutely has to happen this week/this month? And what can be done next week/next month?
Full Moon is for Reflecting
Going into the details of how I use it phases is too much info for one blog post, so I’ll give one example, with the promise I’ll about the other phases in future posts. Today, we’re coming up on the Full Moon. This is the time every month when I shine a big, bright light on the work I’ve been doing, both spiritually and professionally and make some hard decisions. I ask myself:
What have I accomplished?
What hasn’t gotten done?
What do I need to refocus my efforts on?
What do I need to let go of?
Then I pivot my efforts so I’m working on what really matters. I also spend the evening of the full moon letting go and forgiving. Seriously. Holding on to grudges and bad feelings is the biggest handicap ever. Think of them as literal baggage that you’re carrying while also trying to lead a happy and productive life.
It gets impossible at some point if we don’t start jettisoning those burdens.
Why not give it a try tonight? The moon is technical full at 12:32 am tonight, September 14, 2019, but you can do this anytime tonight or even in the morning if you prefer.
Full Moon Forgiveness Rite:
1. Cleanse your energy. Light a candle, burn some sage, diffuse some essential oil.
2. Meditate. Sit still and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths and imagine the light of the full moon flowing down through the crown of your head, fill and purifying your entire body.
3. Journal. Open your eyes and spend a few minutes writing about what you need to let go of. Is it a grudge? A bad feeling about a mistake you made? Resentment? Something you’ve been holding onto that makes you feel sad and heavy?
4. Visualize. If there’s a person involved, you’re going to imagine a big pink bubble with them inside. It appears in the sky very small, floats toward you like Glenda the Good Witch in The Wizard of Oz.
5. Forgive. Once they get close, imagine putting your hands up to there’s though the bubble and say, “I forgive you.” If it’s something about you, picture yourself. If it’s a situation, picture the situation or something that represents it.
6. Release. Then blow the bubble away. Let rise into the sky until it disappears into the sky and tear up the piece of paper with what you needed to let go of.
And here’s a bonus aromatherapy blend to diffuse on the Full Moon! Use it during your full moon ritual or anytime you want to channel the Full Moon’s energy.
Let me know how it goes!

I’m really excited to share this book!
I spent a lot of time this past year rewriting my very first series ever published, Love and Light. Why? Because I never felt the story was really done, but sometimes you have to let it go. So I did.
Until this past year when I finally figured out what was missing. And I’m extremely happy with how it came out. I feel like it’s finally “right” and done. AND The Love and Light series is now the Of Light and Blood Saga!
And you can get Book 1, Enlightened for just $0.99, but hurry! Because the sale will end soon!

Cold rain pelted the big front window of Loti Dupree’s studio. She stared through the rivulets streaming down the darkening glass, wondering if she should have canceled class.
“Be careful, okay?” She held the door open for the last of her yoga students.
“No worries. I think it looks worse than it actually is.” Jeremy tucked his yoga mat under one arm and grinned down at Loti. “You, uh, want a ride home? I’ve got the Jeep, so you know. Probably safer than that Bug of yours.”
Loti swallowed and shook her head. Jeremy stood just a tad too close and despite the butterflies in her stomach, she made herself meet his gaze. “I’m good. Meeting Rachel for dinner at Rosemary and Thyme.” She cleared her throat. “She’s got the truck. We’ll be fine.”
Jeremey reached out and took the door knob out of her hand, stepping even closer. Loti was caught between the open door and his body.
“You want me to walk you over there?” His husky voice hitched her breath.
They were so close she could smell the soap he’d washed with and the musky, workout sweat drying on his skin. She exhaled sharply, turning to escape as fast as she could but instead tripped over the threshold and into his arms. Wide-eyed and shaking, she froze. He didn’t try some flirty line. He stared down, his eyes asking questions she couldn’t—or didn’t want to—answer.
“I need to go. Rachel’s waiting for—”
He pressed warm lips to her trembling ones.
WHAT DO YOU THINK??? Do you remember the original opening of Enlightened? How is this different? Do you like it better or not so much?
Even if you’ve never read Enlightened, what do you think will happen next???

NINE30: The Little Flame – Book 1
“WANTED: The reincarnated ex-boyfriend who ruined my life.”
Fiamette Jurato, the most powerful healer to the supernatural, is looking for the ex-lover who can save her from an eternity of blood slavery. The one tiny complication? He’s been dead for over 200 years.
Not one to let the little things get in her way, Fia’s joined the world famous DJ Maximillian Barbosa on his EDM whirlwind tour. It seemed like an easy way to blend in and avoid detection by her would-be masters, but she didn’t count on one thing: the crazy attraction between her and the DJ. A heat like that can make you forget the mission you’re on…and the danger you’re in.

Click on the image to watch the replay of my Periscope Live: Episode #003
On today’s Periscope Live I talked about the Tarot Card of the Day, The Moon, and why you should never give up. As usual, I gave a few 1 card Tarot readings to live viewers at the end. Make sure you’re following me on Periscope to catch me live and stick around until the end of the broadcast. You just might get a free reading. 😉
Do you know you set intentions every day whether you mean to or not? Your state of mind determines how you will experience your day. It doesn’t matter what happens; what matters is how you perceive and respond to the events of your day. So don’t give up! No matter what, there is always hope because you can ALWAYS change your intentions. Remember: it’s just a bad day, not a bad life and if you work on creating thought patterns and subconscious programs to support you instead of tearing yourself or your life down, you can be the badass I know that you can be.
Love and light!
