OPPRESSION Re-Release Day!

It's official! OPPRESSION is back out in the book-o-sphere. It feels so good to have made it exactly the way I want it. For many, not much has changed, but those who have worked with me on this know just how much effort I put in to making it my version of perfect. Thanks to everyone who has helped me make it BEAUTIFUL! *cough* Carrie Butler & Holly Kammier *cough*

If you're interested in reading the bonus chapter here is a little tease...
(It's from William's perspective)


I HEARD HER NAME hundreds of times before I ever met her. Elyse. It was whispered behind closed doors, a secret that tortured me when I was a curious child.

In the winter of 1973, when my fifty-year-old self appeared ten years old to the rest of the world, I decided I had to know.

“I’ll be back in a few days. I just need to see for myself that she’s safe,” my dad’s quiet voice slipped through the crack in the bedroom door. I crouched down to listen, pressing my eye to the opening so I could see them.

Blurb & Cover: 

Elyse knows what it means to keep a secret. She's been keeping secrets her whole life. Two, actually. First, that she ages five times slower than average people, so that while she looks eighteen years old, she's well over eighty. Second, that her blood has a mysterious power to heal. For Elyse, these things don't make her special. They make life dangerous. After the death of her parents, she's been careful to keep her secret as closely guarded as possible. Now, only one other person in the world knows about her age and ability. Or so she thinks. Elyse is not the only one keeping secrets. There are others like her all over the world, descendants of the very people the Greeks considered gods. She is one of them, and they have been waiting for her for a long time. Some are waiting for her to put an end to centuries of traditions that have oppressed their people under the guise of safeguarding them. Others are determined to keep her from doing just that. But for Elyse, the game is just beginning-and she's not entirely willing to play by their rules.
