Update & New Author Site!

Greetings, readers!

I know it's been awhile since I posted anything here. If you follow me on Twitter and Facebook, you might have seen that I have been taking a short break from Everealm and busy with a new project (that has been picked up by a publishing company!!!) More on that in a moment.

First up: I have a new author website!


This website (everealmseries.blogspot.com) will still include all things related to Everealm. The new site is more of a general page where all of my future and current projects will be highlighted. Feel free to check it out now and subscribe to my general mailing list here:

And now... drumroll please...

I am happy to announce that Masked, the first book of my new superhero series, has been accepted by Limitless Publishing

I will be posting on my new author site as soon as I have a release date. So make sure you sign up for the mailing list or follow me on social media so you're the first to know.

For now, a little bit about that series:

  • Title: Masked
  • Series: Superhero UnderCover (Book One)
  • Genre: Paranormal with Romantic Elements
  • Age: Upper YA

Synopsis

Vada’s To-Do List:
- Turn 18 (check!)
- Register super name
- Order supersuit
- Attend superhero indoctrination
- Graduate high school
- Start kicking criminal tail!

Vada Lawson isn’t your average teenager. She’s a superhero. Well, almost. Her famous super parents made her promise to graduate high school first but after that… It’s on! She’s been training for this her entire life and she can’t wait to put on the mask and start defending Cyper City against all criminals, humans and supervillains alike. There’s just one small problem…

Someone has been doing the impossible—giving normals a drug that causes them to gain superpowers. As if that weren’t crazy enough, there is also a mad doctor on the loose, kidnapping supers and experimenting on them before dumping their bodies around the city. When Vada’s parents learn about this, they’re more than a little uneasy about letting their teenage daughter roam the streets, searching for bad guys. Especially, since it seems that supers are the new targets.

No matter who this devilish villain may be, Vada isn’t about to let them interfere with her future career as a superhero. Teaming up with her supertech agent, a couple of friendly supers (and one that she’d much rather leave behind!), Vada is determined to stop the murders and save her fellow supers from the clutches of the mysterious mad doctor. Along the way, she makes some allies, a couple enemies, a few mistakes, but most importantly—a difference.

No one ever said that being a superhero was easy…

And now... Meet the Main Characters!!

Vada  (a.k.a. Majestic)



Name: Vada Renee Lawson
Age: 18
Occupation: High School Senior & Hero-to-be
Parents: Bill & Michelle (AKA Siege & Comet)
Siblings: Josh & Garret

Bio: Vada is finally turning 18 and eligible to register her own super name, Majestic. A master of martial arts and tumbling, she is ready to kick some criminal ass and look good doing it!

Likes: Action movies, fantasy books, gummy bears, and motorcycles
Dislikes: Crime, waiting for graduation, and her annoying younger brother's attempts to sneak into her room

Nick  (a.k.a. Orion)



Name: Nicholas Grayson
Age: 18
Occupation: High School Senior & Athlete
Parents: Phillip Grayson (District Attorney) & Deceased Mother
Siblings: No Known Siblings

Bio: Nick has been well-liked and popular since he was old enough to catch a football. His father is the city's D.A. and Nick's life has been a series of galas and parties, less since the death of his mother. But after a seemingly harmless party favor gives him a special ability, Nick's life is turned upside down in an instant.

Likes: Sports, comedies, kickboxing, and blondes
Dislikes: Being alone and pretty much every vegetable

Aspirations: Nick hadn't decided if college was in his future or not, but now he's seriously considering a career of the crime-fighting sort!

Henley  (a.k.a. Eden)



Name: Henley Jean Abernathy
Age: 18
Occupation: High School Senior
Parents: Julia & Howard Abernathy

Victor (a.k.a. Velocious)



Name: Victor Cursey
Age: 19
Occupation: High School Senior (when he goes)
Parents: He'd rather not say
Siblings: No Known Siblings

Bio: Victor isn't your typical teenage boy. Raised by his father (a villain in hiding) and the local drug dealer, he tries to stay under the radar so as not to get caught. That is, until a certain sexy vixen enters his life. Then, all bets are off!

Likes: Reading, motorcycles, swords, and the color black
Dislikes: Authority and doing his father's dirty work

Name: Jameson (James) Bennett
Age: 18
Occupation: High School Senior & Supertech
Parents: Charles & Tracy Bennett

Likes: Video games, collecting t-shirts, and pizza
Dislikes: Broccoli and losing to diamondintheruff14 (his gaming nemesis)

Aspirations: As Majestic's agent, he hopes to make her the very best hero this city's ever seen. Oh, and beat his own record of eating a large pizza in under 5 minutes.

Vortex


Name: Unknown
Age: 19
Occupation: Aerokinesis Super

Aspirations: To get his photo on a hero super card one day.

Gypsy


Name: Unknown
Age: 18
Occupation: Psychic
Parents: Unknown
Siblings: Unknown

Bio: Gypsy sees things. Sometimes they're things that she doesn't want to see. That's her gift and curse. Her visions began in middle school and have been reoccurring since.

Likes: Dancing, reading, and the color purple
Dislikes: Depressing visions and exercise

Aspirations: As the first in her family to choose to work in the field, rather than behind the scenes, she wants to put her power to good use and save lives!

Well, there you have it!

Let me know what you think about the new series. I'm excited to try something new. Don't worry, though. Everealm is still my baby and I will return to my fantasy realm shortly.

P.S. If you'd like to be added to my ARC team and be the first to read Masked, CLICK HERE. Don't wait too long to sign up. I'll be cutting off the list when I reach around 10-12 readers. Thanks!

Haha! Thank you. I thought I would give publishing with a company a try. I'm super excited. The ARC copies will be ready this summer. I'm not used to the slower process but I'm learning as I go! :)
