So without further ado, the official release date for Unbound is....

Just kidding! It'll be November 2nd even if it is windy!

Again, sorry it took so long to get information about this to you guys! If you haven't already, you have until November to catch up and read the first two books in the series! Links to these can be found by clicking their cover images on the left sidebar! :)

Please stop by for the cover reveal which should be happening soon! Hopefully sometime next month (so September)! Until then, the blurb has been updated on, so check that out if you haven't already!

Meet (My Version of) Trystan!

Thanks to all the people who've taken the time to comment me, either here or on Goodreads or Instagram, to tell me about how much they love the book! It means the world hearing it, you have no idea! :)

Not sure if any of you have checked out the new page (link on the top right sidebar) BUT I've added a separate one for drawings! Right now, it's got a few of mine and a couple of coloring pages! Feel free to download and use the latter! I know some people have been working on fan art of their own, and I would LOVE to include it as well! If you've got something, the best way right now to get a hold of me to share it is on There are links to my account all over this blog, but you can always just go there and look me up :) Private messages are usually responded to within 24 hours!

Please, if you haven't already, rate and review Amid Stars and Darkness there as well! Ratings are a huge help in getting more people to see/hear/and actually read the book! And remember, it's available in bookstores and online! The hardcover is gorgeous with these amazing shimmery accents; it would make a pretty gift, just saying. ;)

Anyway, above is the drawing with a copy of the book, and below is a close up. These are photos, not scans, so the detailing isn't as good as if it were the latter, but I love these glow stars that came with my box from Swoon and had to use them! If you're curious about checking out more characters from this and other books, check the page! I'll be adding as I go. There's no set amount of time or anything like that. I'm just doing to draw when I feel like it.

I recently joined the Sketchbook Project (if you haven't heard of this, look it up!!!) and decided that I'm going to fill the book with portraits of characters from my various books. Generally, I'm a celebrity or commission work artist, but this seemed like a great opportunity to branch out with my art and try my hand at bringing some of these characters in my head to visual life!

Let me know what you all think, and if there's a particular character from any of my works you're interested in seeing, leave me a comment about it below! :)

Without further ado, Trystan:

Meet (my version) of Ruckus!

My book, Amid Stars and Darkness, released on the 18th!!!

Thanks to everyone who's already gone out and grabbed a copy! If you haven't yet, and you're into romance with a dash of sci-fi (and hot aliens) please do! You can find this in local bookstores, like Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, etc., or/and online at these places as well as Amazon, Target, catch my drift. :)

Anyway, to celebrate I decided to try my hand at drawing one of the main characters from this book! I had such great feedback from my drawing of Hadrian (from my Underworld Saga), so knew I wanted to share this drawing here on the blog, and not just on my instagram! If you do follow my instagram (@TempestChani) you might have already seen this! Above is a pic of it next to a copy of the book (obviously), below I'm putting a bigger one of just the drawing. This is a photo, not a scan, as I haven't yet gotten around to scanning it. I haven't decided yet, but I might do what I did with Hadrian and create a couple of signed bookplates with them. If people are interested, I'll hold a giveaway or something for a few, so let me know! :)

This is how I picture him in my mind (when I'm not thinking about Brian J. Smith lol), but of course picture him however you want!

I may draw Trystan next....We'll see.

In other news, really quick, don't forget about my Paranormal Romance, Bad Things Play Here, which came out in June! It's available on in both paperback and ebook! It's also up on at a discount for another twelve hours or so!

I'm thinking about drawing Reece from that book eventually as well :)

*IN OTHER NEWS: Some of you have been asking about the review blog. Unfortunately, I had to take it down. My review partner hasn't posted in over three years, and it was getting to be too much for me to manage. Especially since I already post my reviews to my Goodreads account. I considered leaving it up so that people could still access author reviews and old reviews, but again, the latter are all on my GR, and leaving it for the first seemed like it would still be too much work for me. People would undoubtedly continue to request I review their work, and while I LOVE doing this, I honestly just don't have the time. It sucks, but there it is. So, that's why the review blog is gone. Sorry for anyone who's disappointed by this.

In happier news, I've added a new page over on the right sidebar, so check that out! :)

Countdown to Amid Stars and Darkness!

Okay, so it's still technically a ways away, BUT it's NEXT MONTH!!!

AND I got to see what the hardcovers look like!!! That's the picture above! Aren't they gorgeous?!

I can't believe it's so close! I'm crazy excited that this book is getting published, and I can't wait for all of you to get a chance to meet these characters and hopefully fall in love with their story! In celebration, I've tried my hand at one of those fancy (not really) novel aesthetics everyone is always talking about! I don't own any of the images used in it, just so you know! Here it is:

Swoon Reads also put up a post on their blog written by me about my pen name, Tempest C. Avery, and why I originally started using it in the first place. If you're interested in checking it out, please click this link below:

Keep checking back for more fun info and extras on this book; there's a lot coming to lead up to the release on July 18th!!!

Side note: The paperback copy from the giveaway of BTPH was mailed out today!!! I didn't announce or contact the winner because I wanted it to be a surprise! ;) Hopefully it'll get to you (with the holiday) by the end of next week at the latest! :)

Thanks, guys! As always, questions and comments welcome!
