It’s been a crazy 2020 so far. All my events were canceled because of Covid-19. But never fear, I will find a way to have an event before this year is done.

Now the News…

The third book in the Legends of the Pale Series was released on time and The Dreams of Demons is starting to see some reviews trickle in. All of them are positive thus far. I am currently running a discounted price across all ebook formats with the hope that I can gather several more reviews from readers for this book. Because… reader reviews are the best!🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

This story kept me captivated from beginning to end. It’s a steamy romance between a demon and the only human who can see him. Add in danger and intrigue, and it’s really hard to put down. Even though there are quite a few characters, I didn’t have any trouble keeping them straight in my head. Most of them I liked enough to want to know more about… hopefully in future books! This is the first I’ve read from this author, so as soon as I finished the book, I went and bought the first two in the series. Can’t wait to read more.

Amazon Reviewer… 5 stars

I’m still waiting to hear back on the editorial reviews for The Dreams of Demons from Literary Titan and Readers’ Favorite. I’ll be sure to share them as soon as they hit my email account.

In the meantime…

The Love of Gods and The Fate of Wolves are in the running for a possible award sponsored by The Southern Pen Bookshop. The GIAY Awards is a direct response to the Georgia Writers Association’s decision to exclude self-published authors from their annual award. I have often preached about the quality and value of independently published novels. I am glad that two of my books have a chance to be recognized this year. They have both been well received by readers.

In other news…

I had the opportunity to design a cover for a good author friend of mine. Crystal Jackson‘s book of poetry will be released this summer. As she formats the interior layout of her manuscript, I’ve had the good fortune to read many of her poems and I’m eager to add this collection of poetry and poetic prose to my bookshelf.

Before I forget…

Crystal Jackson was kind enough to mention The Fate of Wolves in her list of Beach Reads and Book Reviews Perfect for a Quarantine Summer. The following is an excerpt.

The Fate of Wolves by Tarrant Smith

Think the beginning of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers meets a grown-up Twilight — if you take out the singing and the teenage love triangle. Yes, this is paranormal romance, and it perfectly combines mystery, romance, and magic for this werewolf tale like none you’ve read before. The dialogue is smart, the characters are well-developed, and something about the pack dynamics reminds me of the start of the aforementioned musical when you have one strong woman surrounded by a crowd of wild men. Expect to be enchanted yourself and to fall in love with this supernatural beach selection.

To be fair, the Legends of the Pale series start with The Love of Gods, and Smith just released the third in the series, The Dreams of Demons. However, they can be read in any order you like.
