Hi. I'm Dariel Raye, an interracial/multi-cultural paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and psy/suspense author, and every day of this journey is a learning experience. I'm also a counselor, musician, and animal lover. My stories are about all-conquering love and romance, and I enjoy hosting other authors as well. Enter a world where werewolves, vampires, multi-shifters, vamp-like Nephilim, Vodouin Fey, and all things paranormal capture our hearts...

Dariel's 2013 Writing Goals Revisited

Ah, the advent of Spring. Resurrection Day, bright colors, blooming flowers, and...time to revisit my goals. ** = Completed.

As you can see, I've gotten off to a pretty good start. Published "Dark Sentinels Book Two: Torin" mid-February, so it's still a relatively new release, and sent the manuscript of "The Alerians - Dark Progeny Series" book 2 - "Gideon's Light" to my publisher (it was approx. a week later than I'd originally planned). 

I made a couple of revisions for two reasons: "Gideon's Light" was a bit late (it just kept growing!), and I got side-tracked (happens a lot) by another story so vivid I just had to write it. That's what I'm doing right now (note #3).

Finally, I decided to hold off on content edits to my mega-long reincarnation novel until next year so I can release book one of my new series, "Children of Cain" no later than the end of January. Notice, too that I'm planning to release "Dark Sentinels Book Three: Parrish," "The Alerians - Dark Progeny: Gideon's Light" (bk.2), "The Alerians - Dark Progeny: Rehobeth's Passion" (bk.3), and finish the outline of "Dark Sentinels Book Four" by the end of the year. We'll see how that goes.
  1. Complete rewrites for book 2 of “Dark Sentinels” series and release in February.**
  2. Complete book 2 of “The Alerians – Dark Progeny” series and send to editor by mid-March. **
  3. Complete erotic romance short and submit to publishers by end of March.
