Some Changes

You may have already noticed a change to my website. Now, instead of highlighting only my mysteries, it includes more focus on my other (fantasy) books and stories.

I recently decided to re-brand my two fantasy books currently in-print — CROWN OF ICE and SCEPTER OF FIRE — with my Victoria Gilbert author name. These books will be re-published under my Gilbert author name very soon! I also have a fantasy short story that will be published under Victoria Gilbert in a new anthology from Snowy Wings Publishing. (The anthology, A Touch of Magic, will release on July 30, 2019).

I am changing over all my books to one name so that I can promote them more easily, and not have to worry with multiple websites or social media accounts. I also hope to publish more fantasy, along with more mystery books, in the future, and want my Victoria Gilbert brand to encompass both.

One thing my readers should know is that, regardless of genre, my books will NEVER feature explicit sex, extreme violence, or extensive use of profanity (if any). So have no fear about switching between my genres — if you are comfortable with one, the other will be fine too.

I am excited about this new change, and I hope you will be too.

 

Cover Reveal for GLOW OF THE FIREFLIES by Lindsey Duga

Today I’m very happy to participate in the Cover Reveal for Lindsey Duga’s upcoming YA Fantasy,

GLOW OF THE FIREFLIES

Isn’t it beautiful?! And, having read drafts, I guarantee this is another wonderful, magical, book from Lindsey, author of KISS OF THE ROYAL.

 

About the book:

Briony never planned to go back to the place she lost everything.

Firefly Valley, nestled deep within the Smoky Mountains, is better kept in her past. After an unexplained fire gave Briony amnesia, her mother disappeared and her dad moved them to Knoxville.

But now her grandmother needs a caretaker and Briony’s dad volunteers her to help. The moment she returns, her whole world shifts. She feels a magical connection to this valley, as if it’s literally part of her somehow.

And when she meets a hot guy who claims he was her childhood friend but now mysteriously keeps his distance, Briony starts piecing together her missing past…and discovers her mother didn’t leave to start a new life somewhere. She’s trapped in the hidden world within the valley.

Now, Briony will do whatever it takes to rescue her, even if it means standing up against dangerously powerful nature spirits. Even if it means giving up her first love.

 

Coming October 1st! Available for Preorder!
