In the Reho-Diemer household, there is much flurry of activity currently, involving words and wire and frequent war-room (Cupcake-room? Tea-room?) meetings about plot and characters and maaaaaagic. Not only am I working on my next novel, I’m also writing a novella and writing a Sooper Seekrit project with Jenn, my amazing wife. I can’t yet talk about the Sooper Seekrit project, but I shall give you a hint. It’s not really a sequel to The Dark Wife, but it sort-of-kind-of has something to do with it. Stay tuned~! ❤
So, without further ado, announcing my next two projects–with covers REVEALED~! (Insert sparkling here with appropriate wind-chime sound effect.)
Ragged: A Post-Apocalyptic Fairy Tale
Release date: No specific day yet–aiming for late July/early August (roughly two months!)

Talula is one of very few who survived the Dis-Ease. Now that most humans are dead, there is a rumor spreading that the survivors are being killed off, one by one. By fairies.
Talula doesn’t believe it until a fairy comes for her.
On orders of their queen, the bloodthirsty and savage fairies have risen above ground to finish what they believe Mother Earth started: the annihilation of the human race.
But there are some fairies who don’t want to kill humans, and Din is one of them. When Din is sent to murder Talula, she can’t bring herself to do it. Din sees signs in everything, and she harbors a last, desperate hope: that Talula could be the foretold Oracle, and–together–they could save mankind, along with a real and dying creature, the earth Herself.
Funny that, in the midst of a last-ditch-effort, race-against-the-clock quest to salvage the world, all Talula can really process is the fact that she’s falling in love with a fairy girl.

Elise sells magic, charms and dreams out the back door of her brightly painted wagon. A Witch and daughter of the Maja, she believes that everything happens for a reason, but she has never quite understood why there is a hollow feeling in the place where her heart should be.
One night, at the fabled Moon Market, she meets a stranger who will eventually give her a star. The woman’s name is Via, and she offers Elise this shining treasure freely, asking for nothing in return. Love finds Elise; for the first time in her young life, she feels no emptiness.
But Elise’s past is catching up with her. In the dark of night and burn of day, the Fevered turn their soulless faces in her direction, changing course. They begin to hunt her, intent on devouring her light. Is Elise part of the solution to banish the Fevered forever…or part of their curse?
SUGAR MOON is the first novella in the MAJA Trilogy.
