Celebrating You

holiday-heading

For me, 2016 has been full of personal growth and surprises. I’m focusing on sharing my motto: Excite, Empower, and Embrace. And, I love sharing uplifting stories, support, and words of love and peace on my personal FB page, so please follow me there https://www.facebook.com/cyndifaria/ as well as my author page where I share all my latest writing news and releases: https://www.facebook.com/CyndiFariaAuthor/

My quarterly newsletter is fast growing. I offer special prizes throughout the year, including excerpts, reader bios, covers, swag, recipes inspired by my Whisper Cove series, and peeks at what the characters are doing now. Super fun! You can sign up here http://eepurl.com/bWRwDb

I’m excited to share that my writing took a new direction (dark romantic suspense!) I can’t wait to tell you more about my new series in 2017. I’ve returned to writing book 5 in the Whisper Cove series (Thank you to everyone who requested more of that paranormal world. Dane and Abigail’s book, Spirit Freed, releases February 14th! Woot! (For info and pre-order vendor links: https://cyndifaria.wordpress.com/published-fiction/)

The new house is amazing and furnished just the way we like, lots of pillows, throws, and comfy reading areas. We welcomed a new puppy and she’s eight months old already. Will, my four year old heeler, thinks she’s awesome. The backyard, aka swampland, will be our next project…but isn’t that life’s lesson to happiness? Setting goals, empowering yourself with the skills needed to complete the work and doing your best, then embracing your accomplishments? Repeat, repeat… I’ve even been asked to speak to a group of high school-aged young women on pursuing dreams!

Before I welcome in the new year, I want to say thank you for following me and supporting my writing dreams. If you haven’t read the first two books in the Whisper Cove series, now is your chance to read the romance that started it all (books 2, 3, & 4 are stand alone novels). I hope you enjoy Jake and Faith’s quest to find their HEA.

“…a wonderful story about love, best friends turning to lovers, and figuring out what you really want out of life.” Reviewer

Maggie leaned in, brushed her lips against Garrett’s, and shimmied closer. “Don’t be afraid to get close.”

He twined his legs with hers, thought about how the pig-tailed ten-year-old had transformed into a beauty queen, now safely tucked into his arms. “I thought we had a dance class?'”

She whispered, “Class doesn’t begin for half an hour.”

He tasted her smile, tasted sunshine on a stormy night. The way his body tingled from her chest, tummy, and thighs pressed tight against his might as well have been a lightning bolt that struck deep and fired him up inside. He could think of nothing else but claiming her as his.

Best friends to lovers never felt so good.

Open your heart to the road home.
No Chance in hell… Mason Jayme is rumored to be a healer and the one prophesized to save his hometown of Whisper Cove from an ancient Lover’s Curse. Until that curse is broken, however, he has no business taking a lover—a lesson harshly learned after Mason sleeps with his first love, Katrina Rendon. Believing he’s the reason Katrina was burned and scarred, Mason leaves town, rejecting any notion he can be good for anyone, let alone a whole town.
Her only hope… Katrina was far more devastated by Mason’s rejection than the injuries she sustained in a fire. She wants nothing to do with him—until her father falls ill, and the only way to save him is with Mason’s healing skills. When Mason returns to Whisper Cove, he promises not only to heal her father but to help Katrina open her burn victim retreat. Once reunited, the passion between Katrina and Mason sparks higher than ever.
But, when Katrina’s soul is threatened by an Original Spirit who’s claimed Mason’s body as his own, she’s caught in a whirlwind of spirit possessions and secret rituals. This time, Mason is ready to risk death by fire in order to save Katrina and their love.

Happy Holiday Weekend!

Happy-4th-of-July-2015

Happy July! I can’t believe the 4th of July here! I have so much fun stuff to share with you all on this Independence-Day weekend! I’m thrilled to reveal the amazing cover from Patricia Schmitt with PickyMe Artist for my upcoming Whisper Cove novel, SPIRIT FREED! Thank you all for the immense support you’ve given me and my Whisper Cove family! I’m excited to take you back to Whisper Cove with Dane and Abigail’s story (preorder coming soon).

SpiritFreed_Ecover_600x911

With their second chance at love threatened, lovers held prisoner by dark magic fight a spirit controlled by a sinister force…in book 5 of the Whisper Cove series.

 

Sworn off Dark Magic… Riiight

Dane Kershaw never let his ego stand in the way of duty and doing what is right. When the firefighter is injured in a horrific fire that nearly steals a precious child’s life, he sets his pain aside and rallies fellow wounded firefighters for a beach-side fundraising pin-up calendar…if only he can find a worthy photographer.

 

Only on one condition…

Freed from the wrong side of curses and spells, the last thing Abigail Haven wants is to reconnect with the thrill-seeking heartthrob…until Dane silkily summons her to Whisper Cove with a desperate plea: Photograph the calendar and help raise funds to save a little girl’s life.

 

But, when Abigail discovers Dane’s human image is degrading while his spirit image is becoming dominant both Abigail and Dane race to decipher the magical elements.

 

With their second chance at love on the line, will they survive descending into the world of dark magic or will embracing curses and spells be the key to setting their spirits free?

 

For Pre-Order, stay tuned… I’m targeting a fall release for SPIRIT FREED.

 

Next up….

Print is here!!! There’s such a wonder feeling of awe that comes from holding my books. Here’s Spirit Awakened in the full. Squee! The other books in the series are in the works and should be available for purchase by end of month.

May is such a special month for me. I’ll be celebrating family birthdays, Mother’s Day, and my favorite season, Spring. Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal. So, what better time to announce I’ve been working on a new series. Believe me when I say I’m biting nails having to keep the title, blurb, and cover secret for a little longer. Yes, I’m such a terrible tease, but I guarantee the waiting will be worth every single minute of pleasurable reading. 😉

Return to Whisper Cove. For those of you who’ve asked (demanded…hehe), Dane will get his very own story and happily ever after. I’m targeting late fall 2016. So, inside book 5 of the Whisper Cove series, we will see return characters and face a whole new set of mystery, page-turning suspense and twist-turns and, of course, steamy romance to Excite, Empower, and Embrace. So, hold on to your seats…er, ereaders!

FariaHeaderNoCouple (1)

On the website front, in the next few weeks expect website changes, along with a wonderful monthly newsletter offer that includes a first peek at new works, excerpts, slices of my life, and a monthly drawing where winners have a choice to grab an autographed book of your choice from my Whisper Cove series, and much more.

That’s all for now. I hope May brings you lots of blessings. Oh, and don’t forget to grab your Free and Reduced priced digital copies of Whisper Cove.

Speaking of Whisper Cove… What do you think of the new covers? I’m so thrilled with designer Picky Me Artist for her creativity I’m practically swooning.

February News:

  1. I’m writing a new series…Believe me, I want to share this story with you all so badly. But, I’m just not quite at that sharing stage. So, hold tight. I promise I’ll have some character introductions soon and maybe a flirty snippet or two.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! This is such an exciting and busy time of the year. Thankfully, I’ve had the opportunity to spend some quality time with my mom and sister. We had the most fun baking cookies and sharing them with family, friends and neighbors.

SnowmanFor me, it’s important to give something back during the holidays. Sometimes it’s easy for me to get caught up in all the frills of the holidays. This year, I participated in a fundraiser for a local family whose daughter has leukemia. Seeing all the people there giving their hearts and souls to help is the best present I could have received this holiday season (FB page: Prayers for Reece )
