Now, let's start the party already!

Recently, I was chosen by Rave Reviews Book Club to be honored as one of their Spotlight Authors. During that time, readers were able to get to know my books and me a little better.  If you missed it, you can visit those sites by checking out my blog called My Moment in the Spotlight.

My novels are a part of a series called The Chronicles of the Diasodz.  They are young adult fantasy/paranormal stories about a group of beings who live among humans and are fighting for their future.  They have the power to heal and protect humans, but their powers have been gradually fading.  There is a prophecy that states that a child born on Earth can restore their powers and prevent them from dying out.  Finding the child isn't difficult, but getting her to save them will be the greatest challenge of all!  If I've peaked your interest, read below for more on each book.  

***WARNING***  This is a series, so each book will build upon what has taken place in the previous book.  If you don't like spoilers, you might not want to read the blurbs for books 2 and 3. Just sayin'... ;-)

At the end of this post, I will reveal to you the title for book 4 and what you can expect.  And then, I have a little treat for those of you who have grown to love one character in particular. ;-)


Sofia is a 17 year old who is quite content with her life.  She has a caring boyfriend who also just happens to be her best friend since birth.  She has a loving mother.  She is successfully completing her last year of high school and enjoys her part-time job.  She can't imagine wanting more from her life...until Ar'ch (pronounced Ar-rick) enters her dreams, sparking a burning flame inside of her that she can't seem to extinguish nor does she want to.

Ar'ch is a Diasodz (Die-ah-sodz), a species created by the Goddess back when God created humans.  Diasodz were made to heal and protect humans but when the Diasodz turned their backs on helping humans and left Earth to live in their own world, the Goddess abandoned them.  Since then, their powers and their very lives have been fading.  A prophecy foretold that a young girl born on Earth would be the Diasodz's savior.  Ar'ch and his brother, Angel, travel to Earth to retrieve her and bring her back to their world before her death day in order to save their kind.  Ar'ch knows the drill: find the target, capture her, and safely bring her home.  But what happens when the target captures his dormant heart?

Choices create action.  Actions have consequences.  When faced with the truth what choice will Sofia make?  Will she be able to accept the consequences that follow?

You can buy this book on Amazon.  You can also read it for free if you have Kindle Unlimited.


Sofia has lost everything that was important to her: her mother, her boyfriend, and her best friend.  Even the belief that humans are the only beings in the world has been stripped away, but she has no time to dwell on her losses because she’s been transported to a new world to become the savior of the Diasodz.  Sofia trusted Ar’ch and Angel to be there for her and to guide and protect her, but only Angel has held true to his word.  Ar’ch has abandoned her, leaving her to feel tricked and betrayed.

Ar’ch brought Sofia home, fulfilling his mission to bring their savior safely to their world, but it didn’t come without a cost.  Rafe, Sofia’s boyfriend, was killed, and Ar’ch believes Sofia blames him for it.  Ar’ch’s sole focus becomes doing what is best for Sofia, and in his mind, that does not include him.

As Sofia deals with Ar’ch’s absence, she throws herself into learning about the Diasodz’s history.  She grows stronger both emotionally and physically and begins to accept her role in their world, but not everyone is convinced that she is the one whom the prophecy states will save them.

Beliefs will be challenged.  Secrets will be revealed.  Relationships will be shattered.  And in the aftermath, evil will see its opportunity and strike.  Will Sofia be able to handle it all?  Or will the savior of the Diasodz lose her will to continue?

You can download this book for FREE today (August 10) on Amazon. You also always read it for free through Kindle Unlimited.




When Sofia chose to leave Rafe to live with Ar’ch in another world, Rafe’s system shut down and sent him to an early death.  But Rafe didn’t die, at least not permanently.  Rafe is a Diasodz, and his death simply freed him from his human shell so that he could become the powerful Diasodz that he was meant to be.

He awakened to a completely new reality, a reality in which he was the prince to a kingdom of powerful beings.  His parents, Drake and Damiana, were the rulers of the Raizyns, a group of Diasodz who were determined to take their rightful place in the world.  And Rafe would be the savior who would lead them on their quest.

Rafe wanted to please his father, especially since he had just met him.  To do that, he needed to learn how to fight like a Raizyn and how to master his newfound skill.  He needed to become stronger, faster, and more powerful.  Rafe needed to become the savior they all expected him to be.  That was what was required of him.

But there was one thing that was more important than everything else.  One person.  Sofia.  Rafe was going to find a way to get her back, even if it cost him his life. Again.

You can buy this book on Amazon.  As with the others, you can also read it for free on Kindle Unlimited.

And now....
The title for book 4 of The Chronicles of the Diasodz...


The One Revealed 
(cover coming soon)


I don't have the official blurb written for the back of the book yet, but for those of you who have read the first three, I wanted to share with you a little bit of what you can expect from The One Revealed.  As the title states, the real savior will be revealed to everyone, including you, the reader.  Sofia will struggle with being held against her will.  Rafe will struggle with trying to convince Sofia to join his side in the war.  Mel will finally find her mother only to have to make some very difficult choices.  Damiana will continue to cause havoc everywhere (after all, it's her specialty!). ;-)  Drake will be united with his family and make plans for their future.  Liana will do her best to shelter Sofia, but will it be enough?  Ar'ch and his family will do everything in their power to find and rescue Sofia while also dealing with other obstacles put in their paths.  Secrets will be exposed.  Characters will have to choose sides.  Lives will be changed forever, and you are NOT going to want to miss it! :-)


And finally, a little treat for those of you who have stayed with me until the end. ;-)

The following character was not one of the characters that I had originally come up with.  In fact, he didn't speak to me until I began writing book two, but he quickly grew into one of my favorites.  So, for those of you who have read The One Enlightened and have also fallen in love with Kai, this is for you! :-)


A Special Interview with Kai

Kai enters the room and it feels like everything stops.  They had told me that he was intimidating, but I wasn’t expecting this.  He’s quite tall, easily 6’2”.  His ebony skin is darker than the deepest night.  The only hair on him is a trimmed goatee.  He’s wearing black shades and a black trench coat, and he’s carrying his black staff with him.  If I didn’t know any better, I’d think he was blind, but I know those shades are only there to hide his eyes.  I clear my throat and begin.

Kai, thank you for coming.  I really appreciate you taking the time to be here with me today. (He nods.  Okaaaaaay.)  Please, have a seat. (He sits.  This is going great.)  So, we are trying to help our readers get to know you better.  How old are you?

I’m 20 life years young.

So, that’s about 38 human years, right?

That’s correct.

Can you tell us about your powers?

We prefer to call them skills.  I have the ability to bring about darkness or light.  I can also cause temporary blindness, though before we started fading, I would have been able to cause permanent blindness.  Oh, and I can see hidden weapons. (He moves his head as if he’s scanning me.) You don’t have any. (He smiles. I swallow.)

Well...(clearing my throat)  I, um, noticed that you have a tattoo of an “x” under your left eye.  Did you do that deliberately?

(He smiles.) It is actually two spears in the form of the Greek letter, Chi.  And I did not put it there; it was a gift from the Goddess.

Oh, is that where you got your name from?

No.  My name is Malakai, but I prefer Kai.  My tattoo showed up on my death day. It’s my weapon to call.  Spears are my weapon.

Cool.  Can you show me how it works?

Of course.  (He stands to give himself a bit more room and then puts his hand to his left cheek and a spear immediately appears in his hand.  He then gives it to me.) Consider it a souvenir.

Wow! Thank you.  Why do you always carry that staff with you?

I like it.  There are spears hidden both on the top and the bottom.  Plus, when I hit the ground with it, I can change the lighting in the room. (He slams the staff on the ground and all of the light leaves the room, not just the light bulbs but ALL light.  We are in pitch darkness.  He hits the ground again with the staff, and the light reappears.)

Nice. I want a staff like that.

It wouldn’t work for you.  You would have to have my skill.

Oh.  Last question...(I hesitate.)  Why do you always wear those shades?

My eyes had always been a shade of gray when I was a youngling which was weird in itself for a human, but when I had my death day, they turned completely white.  Most people are uncomfortable with it, so I just wear the shades to make things easier for them.

So, they don’t shoot laser beams or anything?

(Kai laughs.) No, they don’t.  I’m not one of those comic book heroes that humans read about.  No laser beams or fire comes out of my eyes, though I’m totally okay with people thinking that I have that ability. (I think he’s winking, but with the shades on, I can’t tell.)

It’s been a pleasure to have you with us today, Kai.  Thanks for stopping by.  And tell Ar’ch I said hi, would ya?

(Kai shakes his head.)  You and every other woman in the world.  (He laughs.) Thanks for having me. It wasn’t as painful as I expected it to be.

And there you have it.  Now, you know a little bit more about Kai. :-)

If you've enjoyed my stop, please leave a comment below.  Hopefully, you will be one of the lucky winners.  And why not keep dancing with me at the other stops in our RRBC Book & Blog Block Party!

  2. Thank you for hosting today's party Yvette. I have just downloaded your first book as I really enjoyed your character interview.

    Scrolling down your blog I read that you have anxiety and I can relate to that. I am new to publishing my work and writing a blog and find it all beyond exciting, but the thought of people reading my work makes me want to hide under the bed! I have a creative urge to write all the time and it's my passion, but sharing those words can be so daunting. Luckily I have found that other authors and readers are so supportive and I have met some really inspiring people at RRBC. Well done for all that you do. Your work looks amazing.

    1. Thank you for sharing that with me, Lizzie! It's nice to know that there are other people out there who truly understand the havoc that anxiety can wreak in my life. It took me two years to finally find the courage to publish my first novel. I hide well being the pen/computer, so I've grown comfortable in sharing things through this medium. I still struggle with phone and face-to-face discussions, but I'm choosing to face my fears and embrace my uncertainties, even when the anxiety is screaming at me to hide. lol! After all, it's MY life, so I need to live it. :-) You have always been a great supporter of mine, even without reading my books, and that means a lot to me. I have your novel, Love's Child, downloaded and hope to get to it soon. I just finished reading Assaie's Child, but I have a few books ahead of yours. I look forward to reading it. :-)

      Delete
    2. That's great news. Thank you so much for downloading Love's Child. I hope you enjoy reading it. It's an idealistic view of how family life could be in the future and I really had fun writing it.

      I hate talking to people on the phone too, but never connected it with anxiety. I absolutely love talking to people via social media or even face to face as I've got older, so I could never understand why I don't like phone. I've hadn't connected the two.

      Delete
    3. I think everyone has some anxiety in moments in their lives. It's when the anxiety becomes constant and begins to affect you physically that it becomes a serious problem, and mine has. But I have every intention of putting anxiety in its place because I refuse to give up control over my life. Luckily, I've found a couple of holistic doctors who are helping me. :-)

  4. Hi Yvette. I loved your interview with Kai, he sounds awesome. One of the main characters in the book I'm currently writing is called Kai. You have good taste in names LOL! I've added The One Discovered to my TBR.

    1. Thank you, Michelle! Kai is awesome! His name came to me during a time when my son was playing baseball. I knew what Kai would look like, and I knew he'd have the tattoo in the shape of Chi. I'm a big fan of Greek mythology, but Chi didn't really feel like his name. Then, my son's team got a new player whose name was Malakai, and it just hit me that it was perfect for my character. Thus, Kai was born. :-)

  16. Good Morning Yvette, I have just read down this post and I can say with all honesty that I understand anxiety. It took me years to overcome mine but I did manage to do that with a lot of hard work and faith. I love the eyes on your front covers. They are attention grabbing, to say the least. I have one book thus far on my TBR list and I hope I get to it soon. Thank you.

    1. Thank you, Mary. I've actually just started neurofeedback, so I'm excited about getting some relief from my anxiety soon. As for the eyes on the cover, the eyes were the first things that stood out to me about my characters. Eyes are my favorite part of a person, so it didn't surprise me that my characters would have unique eyes. When I realized that their eyes would transform when my characters used their powers, I knew that I had something special on my hands. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the book when you get around to it. :-)

I got one of the books--could no longer resist the cover and hope to get the other two soon--unless of course I win them lol. I seem drawn to Ar'ch the most, don't know why.As for anxiety, my old nemesis, you are doing the right thing to banish it. I jumped 9 was pushed actually)into public speaking, book signings, blog radio and even TV and the fear diminished, at least for now. Great as this party is, I must move to two more today but looking forward to reading your unusual fantasy.

    1. Thanks for not giving up, Micki. Ar'ch is, by far, my favorite character (shhh...don't tell the others). It is most likely because he takes after my heart throb, Ian Somerhaulder. *sigh* Plus, he thinks he's the Goddess' gift to women and gets knocked down a few pegs at one point. ;-) I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the book once you get around to it. :-)Have fun at the other blog stops for today. They are great! :-)

    1. I am staying REALLY cool in my air-conditioned house! Lol! ;-) To be honest, I'm just used to the heat, so it's not as hot to me as it would be to someone who is visiting. Thanks for stopping by and giving me a laugh, Stephanie. :-)

  44. Great post, Yvette. Sorry I'm so late. Fell asleep after work yesterday and supper, AGAIN. I loved "The One Discovered" and "The One Enlightened" is on my Kindle and TBR list.

  45. Yvette, Sorry I missed out on the prizes yesterday. Guess I'll have to purchase 'The One Discovered" for myself. The whole series sounds wonderful and I can't wait to fall in love with Kai and Ar'ch. Best of everything!
