Okay, first…I want to talk about “Tainted” (Gabby Girls Adventure, Book #3). It was originally scheduled for release December 2013 but now the release is ‘on hold’. For how long you ask? That’s the question that I’ve been struggling with for a while now. I finished the manuscript for “Tainted” a while ago but I’ve been sitting on it because frankly, when I started writing the Gabby Girls series, my mindset and writing was completely different. Now, I need to take a look at the manuscript from a fresh perspective, breathing a different life into it. But I promise not to leave you hanging. I will wrap-up the Gabby Girls series, just not within the timeline that I originally envisioned.
Now, let’s talk about New Adult/Adult fiction. As many of you know, I’m writing New Adult and Adult fiction paranormal romance under my pen name ‘Sedona Venez’. Truly the support and love for my first book “Infinity (Valkyries: Soaring Raven, #1)” has been phenomenal.
In response, I’ve been writing like crazy, and honestly, I’m enjoying the sexier side of New Adult and Adult writing. Now, for all of my readers that loved “Infinity”…stay tuned for book #2 “Infinity Unleashed” and my new paranormal romance novel “Breaking the Storm” scheduled for release 8/6/13. It’s going to be crazy hot J.
My New Adult/Adult fiction book release schedule:
Breaking the Storm – August 6, 2013
Infinity Unleashed – October 2013
Thank you all for support!

Who would play “Infinity”: Rihanna
Who would play “Kara”: Charlize Theron
Who would play “Boulder”: Tom Hardy
Who would play “Torch”: Gerard Butler

Eighteen-year-old Tanzy Hightower knows horses, has grown up with them on Wildwood Farm. She also knows not to venture beyond the trees that line the pasture. Things happen out there that can’t be explained. Or undone. Worse, no one but she and the horses can see what lurks in the shadows of the woods.
When a moonlit ride turns into a terrifying chase, Tanzy is left to question everything, from the freak accident that killed her father to the very blood in her veins. Broken and confused, she turns to Lucas, a scarred, beautiful stranger, and to Vanessa, a charming new friend who has everything Tanzy doesn’t.
But why do they seem to know more about her than she knows herself?
"Virginia's trees look like they're burning. Most of them blaze crimson or gold, but some still have a chokehold on their green. I wish they'd give it up already. Leaves are more beautiful when they're dying."
And so Moonlit begins. From here the story rolls from one twist to another with many vivid characters whose motives are hard to predict. I found myself being suspicious of everyone, wanting to tell Tanzy to be very careful. The deeper I fell into the plot, the more questions kept rising to the surface. But not to worry, all of my questions were answered. Appropriate for all ages, if you love paranormal fantasy mixed with suspense, mystery and other-worldly romance, you'll love this novel!
~Author Julie Ford
The first anniversary of my father’s death was even harder on my mother. Back then, I thought she was haunted most by what she didn’t know. I refused to blame her when she raged above me on our staircase that night, drunk and sad and angry. When she made me promise I’d never ride again. When she hurled a half-full bottle of vodka at my face and it exploded on the wooden stairs at my feet. I hadn’t tried to get out of the way. She had just missed.
I wanted to tell her that knowledge was no solace, that what you know can burn inside you until there’s nothing left but guilt and ash. I also wanted to protect her from losing the only piece of him she had left. So I didn’t say a word.

Max Xylander and the Island of Zumuruud
Max has anger management issues. But she has a secret, too. She can make things happen. Like magic. She almost killed a loser skate punk and nearly used it on her stuck up older sister. The question is, can she do anything other than blow things up? Can she learn to control it? And is it really possible that an obscure teenage girl is the key to keeping all of humanity safe?
Philip just got his ring back. He got it taken away for messing with his teacher’s mind so he can cheat on a test. Now that he has his ring, he thinks he should be able to use his power to make his life better. A lot better. The problem is that people want him to be responsible. But if you could do magic, wouldn’t you use it to escape work in any way possible?
Aaron wants to be a soldier. He knows there are lots of people who would try to take over, and he’s determined to stop them. The problem is that there’s this new girl. And she might be not be on the right side of things. She’s really talented and pretty, but she might be able to destroy everything he believes in. Whatever the case, he knows he needs to learn to be world class with the magic sword while he figures out what to do.
Brynn never gets out. Her grandfather won’t permit it. Her only access to the outside world are high fashion magazines, so she has an unusual idea what she should wear. She’s dying to get out and travel. And adopt animals. Any kind of animal. Is she a lonely future granny with cats or are her ridiculous clothes actually the next fashion craze? What possible role could she play in the destiny of the world?
Max Xylander and the Island of Zumuruud is a fast-paced fantasy adventure for all ages (10 and up) and is the first of a planned trilogy. Fans of magic, swordplay, secret agents, and conspiracies set in a modern everyday world will not be able to put the book down.
