Willow Cover Reveal

Ronie Uncategorized Leave a Comment

HOOAH!! Here she is, WILLOW, Book 2 in the Metcalfes. Canyon’s little sister in the fight of her life! She’s been around the world, seen it all, and has come to easily recognize heroes—her brothers, after all, are some of the world’s finest. For that reason, she’s confounded by one of the captors holding her, her team, and two dozen Nigerians hostage. The man seems … familiar. Join Willow Metcalfe as she and her friends fight for freedom in Spring 2022. I’m really happy with how her cover came out thanks to Jenny Zemenk. Willow has a lot of playful spunk but is hardcore focused on her work with MiLE at a humanitarian compound. The entire Metcalfes series will confront …

Ronie Uncategorized 1 Comment

TITLE REVEAL!!!! Here it is, y’all!!! Droseran Saga #3, which releases in June 2022 from Enclave Publishing, is titled: ***SHADOW OF HONOR*** There are so many nuances and layers to this story. You might’ve seen over the last year while we were in the agonizing throes (no, really!) of getting a home built, I made a plea with my publisher to let me break book 3 into two parts. Truth be told, I was so worried about word count that I was ready to walk away so I could publish this one on my own and do what I felt needed to be done. But thank God I have an amazing publisher who said quite simply, “Do what needs to …

Kardia Illustration Reveal!

Ronie Uncategorized 7 Comments

ILLUSTRATION REVEAL!!! Look at this gorgeous rendering of KARDIA, the capital of Kalonica and residence of the royal family from the Droseran Saga. Originally when I wrote of Kardia, I had something in mind that more resembled Kensington Palace, but as this illustration came to life, I realized I had it wrong. The royal residence would not be simple, not in Kalonica. Not as the most powerful realm on Drosero, home to centuries of medoras. So, I let the incredible Laura Hollingsworth take the lead and was thrilled with how it came out. You will see much more of Kardia in DAWN OF VENGEANCE as well as the third book. REMEMBER: PREORDER DAWN OF VENGEANCE now and submit your receipt …

VVolt N629 (ret) Seizes Rainbow Bridge

Ronie Uncategorized 5 Comments

VVolt is gone. Our hearts are shattered. Mid-morning yesterday—after he’d eaten breakfast and taken his medications—I noticed he wasn’t doing well. He seemed very mopey, then borderline lethargic, refusing food and water. So, we took him to the ER … and late last night he went into distributive shock, likely from the cancer. The Red Bank Veterinary Staff, especially Dr. Levitt, was extremely respectful and caring—they draped a flag blanket over him as Brian and I watched him leave our sides to seize the Rainbow Bridge. Around 11:30pm, he went peacefully amid our tearful, whispered thanks for his love and his service.   Many of you have heard me say—I’ve never known or loved a dog like VVolt before. It’s …

I’m over here minding my own business, having dinner with my husband–at a restaurant for the first time in six months!!–and my phone starts blowing up … BRAND OF LIGHT won the 2020 ACFW Carol Award – Speculative!! This is the first-ever win with this award, which is special to me for so many reasons, including that I grew up in ACFW as an author, I coordinated the Carols a while back, and–mostly–because BRAND is truly the story of my heart and one I never gave up on.
