Dear Book Voyagers,

As we journey further from the release of "Awoke", the first book in the "Unseen War" series, I find myself brimming with a mix of gratitude, excitement, and sheer awe at the path we've traversed together. It's been an incredible journey, one that's far from over, and today, I'm thrilled to share with you some updates that have left me absolutely chuffed!

1. The Awoke Collection Edition Box Giveaway

First up, we have something truly special for you – an opportunity to dive deeper into the reimagined Boston and the mystical ties between the living and the dead with our exclusive Awoke Collection Edition Box. But hurry, the giveaway ends at the month's close - February 29th! This isn't just any box; it's a treasure trove containing:

  • A signed hardcover edition of "Awoke" to immerse you in its mysteries.
  • An oversized bookmark, ensuring you never lose your place in this enthralling journey.
  • Digital assets & behind-the-scenes content, accessible via a unique QR code for those who crave more.

  • A mystery note for those who complete the novel, adding an extra layer of intrigue.

2. Upcoming Author Event in Boston

For our voyagers in the Boston area, mark your calendars for March 9th at 1:30pm! I'll be at the Frugal Bookstore, a cherished community space and the only Black-owned bookstore in Boston. It promises to be a night of lively discussion, shared stories, and perhaps a few secrets revealed about what lies ahead.

3. Celebrating Reviews

The reception to "Awoke" has been nothing short of overwhelming. From the immersive experience lauded by Reader's Favorite to the suspenseful, emotionally layered tale highlighted by Feathered Quill, your reviews have transcended my highest expectations. Then Kirkus Reviews praises the vivid storytelling and world-building, while the action sequences and backstories have resonated deeply with many of you. These reviews are a testament to our shared journey, and for that, I am immensely thankful and excited for what's next!

Looking Ahead: "Rise"

The journey doesn't end here - how can it? The next installment, "Rise", is scheduled for Fall 2025, and I am pouring my heart and soul into continuing the saga that we've embarked on together. The road ahead is filled with more twists, deeper explorations, and, of course, the unwavering spirit of our protagonist, Katya.

As we move forward, I want to hear from you. Your thoughts, your favorite moments, what shocked you, and what you're eagerly anticipating in "Rise". Your engagement and feedback are what fuel this journey, making each step more meaningful than the last. Find me on Tiktok, Threads and Instagram!

In closing, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for being the most incredible voyagers a writer could ask for. Here's to more adventures, more discoveries, and more unforgettable moments together.

With all my gratitude,
