First of all, Indie E-Con is happening this week! You can find all the posts on the Facebook Party with this link or you can find the posts on the blog. Indie E-Con is a great place to connect with a lot of Christian indie authors and learn about a variety of genres.

Indie E-Con even has its own book awards. Voting is open now, and Deliver is up for a few of the awards (along with Disowned by Sarah Addison-Fox). You can click here to vote.

If you landed on my blog as part of the Indie E-Con Scavenger Hunt, my scavenger hunt post is the one right before this one.


Speaking of awards, the voting for the Alliance Award is still open. Deliver made the semi-final list and is eligible for voting, along with a whole bunch of other Christian Speculative Fiction books.

If you love Christian Speculative Fiction, this is a chance to have your voice heard and vote for your favorites, whether that is Deliver or many of the other of the amazing books on this semi-final list!

You can click this link to vote.


Dissociate CoverDissociate releases today! Yay!!!! So excited this book is in the world for all of its fans to love!

About the Book:

Freedom begins with finding the truth.

Amidst the turmoil caused by Smyth’s arrest, Celeste is stuck in limbo, stripped of her citizenship, with no choice but to flee to a peaceful Kyraenean hideaway with the tumultuous Amaya Mason.

When bounty hunters threaten the local orphanage, Celeste and Amaya must work together and fight. Even if it means risking what they cherish the most.

His plans in tatters, his career in jeopardy, Mick Haynes is forced to leave Kyraenea with the enigmatic Torrance Kyle, the agent he still can’t trust.

Torrance is good at lying, and even better at hiding his pain, but is he strong enough to deal with the consequences of betraying his own father?

Can Celeste accept the truth, accept her place in the Haynes family or will lies chain her to the past and destroy her chance at a new life?

Dissociate is available for sale on Amazon here. The first two books in the series Disowned and Dissemble are also available on Amazon.

About the Author:

Sarah Addison-Fox is a New Zealand-born home-schooling mother of two who loves action-packed fantasy with strong heroines. She has an astonishing amount of nail polish, has all her creative writing credentials shoved in a drawer somewhere, and has a husband who, after 27 years, can still make her blush. When she’s not working on her Christian YA fantasy series’,  she can be found fangirling on Goodreads or sending GIFs on Twitter.


Facebook Festival Header

To celebrate the release of Dissociate and Dagger’s Sleep, Sarah Addison-Fox and I are hosting a day-long Facebook Festival. There will be plenty of games and giveaways, not to mention Serena Chase, author of the Eyes of E’veria series, will be the guest of honor. It’s a party you won’t want to miss! You’ll be able to stop by any time during the day to join the fun, no matter what time zone you live in!

Just a few of the prizes we’ll be giving away: A full set of ALL of Sarah’s and my books, swag from New Zealand, a Dagger’s Sleep inspired bookish candle, lots of ebooks of our books, paperbacks of Serena Chase’s books, and more.

Blog Tour Sign Up

This post is going to be jammed packed with announcements. So much has been coming together, it’s hard to find time to breathe sometimes!


Destroy audiobook cover artDestroy (The Blades of Acktar 3.5) is now available in audiobook. While I’m excited about the release, that excitement was dampened by the news the narrator Jesse Dornan died unexpectedly shortly after he finished production on this audiobook, and it has released posthumously.

I won’t be doing a big giveaway for this one. If you love listening to audiobooks and would be willing to give this one (or the first three books) a listen and leave a review, please send me an email. I have a few free audiobook codes I can give away.

For now, Deliver won’t be available on audiobook for the foreseeable future.


Dagger’s Sleep is available for preorder for Kindle on Amazon! After the release, I’ll be raising the price from $2.99 to $3.99, so if you want the cheaper price, you’ll want to make sure you preorder.Dagger's Sleep Cover - Updated 031118

I have also set up a preorder in my website’s store if you would like to preorder a signed paperback from me. I will be shipping the books the last week of May as soon as I receive my copies of the books.

You can add Dagger’s Sleep to your want to read list on Goodreads.


As many of you know, I’m going to be hosting a joint blog tour with Sarah Addison-Fox to celebrate our two new releases. Her book Dissociate (book 3 in the Allegiance series) releases on May 22 and Dagger’s Sleep releases May 28, so it made sense to combine our efforts, not to mention she has become a dear friend.

We wanted to make the blog tour as flexible as possible, so the sign up sheet below has lots of options for promoting one or both of the books. If you don’t have a blog (or otherwise can’t be a part of the blog tour), we also have options to be a reviewer only to post reviews of one or both of the books on Goodreads and Amazon. You can sign up for this in the tour sign up below as well.

Since her books are upper young adult Christian fantasy (with an older audience) and mine are mid-level young adult Christian fantasy (with a younger audience), we have listed in the blog tour sign up page a small content advisory so no one is caught off guard. We’ll also have a content advisory picture that blog tour participants can share during the tour as well. As authors, we want to be completely honest about the content of our books so that they can find their way to the right audience of readers who will love them and have their hearts touched by them.

If you have any questions about the tour or reviewing the books, please contact me at triciamingerink (at) gmail (dot) com.

I’m so excited to start planning this blog tour and share these books with you!

Cover & Title Reveal for my Next Book

Dagger's Sleep Cover Reveal

I’m sorry. I’ve made all of you wait far too long for this reveal. I know I’ve been rather silent about this book. For a while there, I wasn’t sure this book would come together and I didn’t want to get your hopes up if it didn’t. 

But right now, the editing is going smoothly and I’m finally loving this book and the characters, making me even more excited to share this book with you! 

Are you ready to see the cover?

Introducing, Dagger’s Sleep (Beyond the Tales Book 1)!

Dagger's Sleep Cover - Updated 031118

About the book: 

A prince cursed to sleep.

A princess destined to wake him.

A kingdom determined to stop them.

High Prince Alexander has been cursed to a sleep like unto death, a curse that will end the line of the high kings and send the Seven Kingdoms of Tallahatchia into chaos. With his manservant to carry his luggage and his own superior intelligence to aid him, Alex sets off to find one of the Fae and end his curse one way or another.

A hundred years later, Princess Rosanna learns she is the princess destined by the Highest King to wake the legendary sleeping prince. With the help of the mysterious Daemyn Rand, can she find the courage to finish the quest as Tallahatchia wavers on the edge of war?

One curse connects them. A hundred years separate them. From the rushing rivers of Tallahatchia’s mountains to the hall of the Highest king himself, their quests will demand greater sacrifice than either of them could imagine.

Release Date: May 28, 2018

To make things even more exciting, I’m going to be co-hosting a blog tour from May 22 to 28 with Sarah Addison-Fox. Her next book Dissociate releases May 22. I had the privilege to read an early copy of her book, and it’s amazing! I can’t wait for all the fun and games we have planned for the tour! 

Final note, nominations for the Alliance Award opened yesterday. This is a reader-voted award run by Realm Makers, and last year, thanks to you guys, Defy made it to the top 5! While Deliver was published last year and is eligible to be nominated, I’m not going to demand you go out and vote it in (though I would be beyond honored if you did). Just take a few minutes to give a shout out to the books you felt were great Christian speculative fiction works last year! Link to nominate books here.
