Aurora Returns!

I want to thank everyone for their interest in the Aurora Sky series, especially the readers who have been waiting since July of last year for volume three. Thanks for your patience! If you're new to the series, check it out here.

Uprooting our lives last month to move from a small island to the mainland of Washington State set back my writing and release schedule, but I'm still in the ballpark of May...sliding slightly into June. ;)

I can't wait to share everything that's been going on in Aurora Land since we last left her outside the palace in the battle to the death.

Bad Blood begins with Aurora's final test before boot camp graduation after which she is allowed to return home and begin her first semester of college. But trouble awaits. ;-)

Don't miss the BAD BLOOD release announcement. Sign-up for an email alert to stay in the Aurora Sky loop.

Here's how it's going down:

Oddity Reviews just did an interview with me asking how many books will be in the Aurora Sky series, whether certain characters will reappear, and which members of the cast I relate to most. If you like, check it out here.

And if you didn't see it already, my best post of last year was an interview of Aurora Sky cover model Gabriella. I love this young death! Gabbie bared her soul. Check out the Q&A here.


  1. I read that post and loved Gabriella. I'm reading your interview right now and congrats on writing all these books Nikki.

  2. YAY! I cannot wait for Bad Blood! So excited to read what's coming and to see how Aurora deals with bootcamp!
