The Summer Prince


Today I wanted to give a quick mention to the forthcoming release of the Summer Lovin’ anthology books from Omnific Publishing. The books will be released July 1st and will be available until the September 30th with proceeds donated to Save the Ta-Tas during Breast Cancer Awareness month in October.

During my mid-twenties I found a lump in my breast after a self-check. It was small, something I wouldn’t have noticed if I hadn’t been looking. I spent a few days pretending it wasn’t there and eventually told my sister-in-law and sought a specialist. Fortunately it turned out to be nothing serious but many women are not so fortunate.

I wrote The Summer Prince specially for the YA anthology. I would describe it as a hint of sleeping beauty combined with a healthy dose of celtic lore and true love.

On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, Niamh sneaks out to attend the festival of Beltaine. Not long into the celebration she encounters a mysterious young man named Regan. When Niamh has to choose between running deeper into a dark forest with a supernatural creature that shouldn’t exist or facing an unknown threat chasing her, Niamh discovers she will have to rethink everything she knows about the Fae. 

On to the hop!

Authors!  Have a book out?  Are you under contract for publication?  Make sure you join in the hop. This is a great way to network your blog and let readers know who you are!

Here's how it works:


  • Follow as many authors as you like. Just follow the Linky list and hop from author to author. The idea is to find as many "new to you" authors as you can, and hopefully some great new reading material as well.  Leave a comment as you hop from blog to blog!  We'd love to chat with you!


  • Follow the Meet an author Monday host (Cali Cheer Mom) along with any of the wonderfully talented authors on the list.
  • You will need to enter your name and blog url into the Linky tool.
  • Grab our super cute button and place it in a post. (THIS IS IMPORTANT!) If you don't create a post for the hop, your readers won't have a place to comment, and the hop will stop with you. So create a post, paste in the Linky code and start hopping!
  • The purpose of the hop is to meet "new to you" authors and discover great new reads. Follow as many authors as you can. Leave a comment and introduce yourself!
