New Website and Quick Update

Hope everyone is having a great holiday! If you haven't yet, check out my new website: http://tiffanyapan.com I'm also putting finishing touches on the Chapter 2 recap of Vixen (The Flappers, #1) and that will be up on New Years day as I nerd out and watch SyFy Channel's Twilight Zone marathon. I'll also be releasing Sacred Atonement soon after the new year. Just trying to make certain of continuity. :) Hope everyone is having a great holiday!

What's Happening Over Here

Hey all, Hope everyone is surviving the craziness of the holiday season. First, I want to say thanks to Charlie Fleming at Screamzine for featuring my book series: Tiffany Apan's New Gothic Series at Screamzine.us Second, my new website should be up and running very soon (and yes, this blog will be attached to it). And once that's up, I'm going to get started on the Spotify playlist for The Birthrite Series. I do have a couple at 8tracks.com , but I like to give people options. :) I also have started a pinterest board dedicated to the music that inspired and/or appears in The Birthrite Series. In the meantime, here are two songs that if I had to choose one as a theme for The Birthrite Series, it would likely be a tossup between these two: The songs in question are "Dante's Prayer" and "Cymbeline", both by Loreena McKennit (whom I've been listening to quite a bit while writing this. "Dante's Prayer" is from her a

VIXEN Recap: Prologue and Chapter 1 (Gloria)

Hey all, A couple weeks ago, I promised to recap the first book in Jillian Larkin's The Flappers series, titled Vixen. I found the book on a recent trip to the thrift store and of course, it piqued my interest. As I stated in a previous post, I've been wanting to do a book recap on this blog for quite some time but didn't really have a book that I would say drove me to want to do weekly recaps. My original choice was going to be Jessica Sorensen's Death Collector series. I've only read the first book in that series, but it was enough for me to start thinking of the stereotypes and tropes of the goth culture that is prevalent in much of modern entertainment. I was set to recap Ember X once I released Descent, but given the eras and subject matter of my own Birthrite series, The Flappers series interested me a little more at this time. Before I begin, Vixen is set in 1923 Chicago. Here is the book's synopsis: Jazz... Booze... Boys... It's a dang

Descent Available on Amazon Kindle and Vixen Recaps

Hey all, Just a quick note letting you all know that the first book in The Birthrite Series titled Descent is now available on Amazon Kindle and Apple iTunes (I'll have links below). Also, I will be starting the recaps for Vixen (The Flappers, #1) next week, either Monday or Thursday (though I'll try to do it Monday). That is all for now. :) Descent on Amazon Kindle Descent on Smashwords Descent on Apple iTunes   Also, if you're into essential oils and homemade teas, check out my friend's company: Essential Blooms Off to meet the coffee club soon (a group of us who meet every Friday night based on our love for coffee and very unique conversation topics). :D

Hey all! I am happy and ecstatic to officially announce that after blood, sweat, a lot of coffee, a few tears, and an irritating computer issues that needed fixed, the first book in The Birthrite Series (my labor of love). Descent (The Birthrite Series, #1) is officially released! Right now, it is only available on Smashwords, but I'll keep you posted when it is released elsewhere. I'm also looking forward to releasing the novella, Sacred Atonement before the year is out and starting my Vixen (Flappers, #1) recaps on this blog. Thank you to everyone that continues to express interest in the series and I really hope you enjoy the first installment. :) Available at Smashwords and soon other retailers. :) The Birthrite Series is a journey into the vast unknown, and plunges deep into the darkest crevices of the mind, begging the question of what sanity really is and if the insane truly are. Are we really shown the whole truth of what surrounds us or is it an i

Descent Update

Hey all, My computer was acting up and not cooperating earlier and I ended up having to run a full system scan which ate up a good chunk of time. I am working toward getting the Smashwords ebook format completed for sometime tonight. Amazon Kindle might be delayed by another day though I will try to have both done today. Gotta love modern technology. Thanks for your patience and I do look forward to releasing the first installment in the series. :)
