release day sk 1


ONLY 99¢ at Amazon


With a curse, she will build an army.
With the dagger, she will undo the last sacrifice.
But first the sorceress must find the secret keeper.

Torn from her homeland and thrust into a betrothal against her wishes, Ayianna learns her family has a deadly secret that now has her on the run. She joins forces with Kael, an embittered half-elf, and Saeed, an elderly High Guardian, to seek answers to her father’s death, the destruction of Dagmar, and the plains people’s bizarre behavior.

Ayianna discovers there is more at stake here than just her mother’s disappearance and her familial duty to her betrothed. The sorceress has cursed the plains people, and it is a race against time to release them before the sorceress resurrects an ancient evil.

Guest Post

Thank you so much for hosting me on the Secrets Kept Release Day Blog tour!

So the big question? If Secrets Kept goes to film, who would play the characters?



I love Rachel Weisz in The Mummy and Mummy Returns.



He was the first character I could visualize, and I saw him as a younger Jimmy Smits.




I think Matthew McConaughey would make a good Desmond.



Rupert Grint would do a great job portraying Prince Vian, I think.



I used to think Nicole Kidman but then I remembered Joanne Whalley from Willow. LOVE that movie.



I kind of picture Saeed as Morgan Freeman with less hair on top and a long braid in the back.



Someone like Robert De Niro

One thing I realized while putting together this post was that I haven’t watched any recent movies in years, so a lot of the actors I’m thinking of wouldn’t be the right age, nevertheless, this was fun!

Thanks for having me!
