About the Book

“Don’t you know? Animals like you have no soul.”

Could God ever love a half-blood all of society looks upon with such fear and disdain? Jace once believed so, but when a tragic loss shatters the only peace he’s ever known, his faith crumbles as the nagging doubts he’s tried to put behind him descend on his grieving heart. With them come the haunting memories of the bloodstained past he longs to forget, but can never escape.

Taken from home at a young age and raised to serve the emperor, Kyrin Altair lives every day under a dangerous pretense of loyalty. After her unique observation skills and perfect memory place her into direct service to the emperor, Kyrin finds herself in further jeopardy as it becomes increasingly difficult to hide her belief in Elôm, the one true God.

Following the emperor’s declaration to enforce the worship of false gods under the penalty of death, many lives are endangered. But there are those willing to risk everything to take a stand and offer aid to the persecuted. With their lives traveling paths they never could have imagined, Jace and Kyrin must fight to overcome their own fears and conflicts with society as they become part of the resistance.

Available now on Audible and iTunes!

Upcoming Black Friday Sale

As everyone probably knows by now, Thanksgiving is next week! A time to gather with family and friends and be thankful for God’s blessings.

One of the things I’m especially grateful for this year is all the ways God has used The Blades of Acktar and Beyond the Tales in so many lives around the world. I’m thankful for all my many, many readers who have taken the chance on my books.

To say thank you, I will be discounting all of my Kindle ebooks from Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday. It is a great time to pick up that book in the series you’ve been missing or share them with a friend. I’ll also be running free shipping and a few discounts on the signed paperbacks on my website.

A while back, I decided to submit Dagger’s Sleep for a Reader’s Favorite review. Last week, the review came back, and it is a 5 shiny stars review!!!!

5star-shiny-web

The review:

What does it mean to be a prince? Or a princess, for that matter? Is it a right of how one is born? A right to be arrogant, selfish and self-centered? A hundred years ago, a High Prince, Alexander, thought he was born to rule. He had the arrogance to think he was the chosen one and, as such, he could do no wrong. High Prince Alexander was cursed by the Fae. At the age of twenty-one, he would prick his finger with his own dagger and fall into a deep sleep for all eternity. On a journey to challenge this curse, he learns that he’s not as righteous as he thought he was, and though he manages to have the curse altered to only sleep until a cursebreaker is found, he discovers some unpleasant things about himself.

It’s approaching the anniversary of the High Prince’s demise and the cursebreaker has been found: Princess Rosanna. Only, the princess must travel incognito and across treacherous terrain to reach the castle where the High Prince sleeps in order to break the curse. Will she make it in time? And will it be worth the effort? Will her war-torn country be a better place to live after Alexander awakens? And must she love someone she has never met, even if he is a prince, after the curse is broken?

Tricia Mingerink’s fantasy novel, Dagger’s Sleep (Beyond the Tales): A Retelling of Sleeping Beauty, is more than just a fantasy. A well-loved fairytale retold becomes an adventure and a journey of self-discovery as two royal personages must come to terms with who they are and who they really should be. The plot is two-fold: one tracing the events leading up to the High Prince’s deep sleep that lasts a hundred years and the second one following the cursebreaker’s treacherous journey wake the High Prince. Each plot is distinctly identified to avoid confusion and each scenario is well-paced. The characters are well developed and the descriptive narrative is exceptional in setting the scenes. A great story by a significantly powerful writer. This is an author I’ll definitely follow.


I’m so grateful for such kind words about Dagger’s Sleep! That book had a rocky start, but it has really come into its own in the past few months. I’m thankful to everyone who has taken the time to read Rosanna’s, Daemyn’s, and Alex’s stories in both Dagger’s Sleep and Midnight’s Curse, and I can’t wait until next year to continue their story in Poison’s Dance.

I love how much of their personalities the artist captured in these sketches! Leith’s stands in a very heroic pose, ready to fight, but with his knife pointed away. Martyn…*shakes head* He looks like he isn’t sure he’s going to protect or attack. Not quite sure if he’s a good guy or a bad guy yet. And that’s so Martyn.

Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend!

Black Friday Sale

Like last year, a group of fellow indie authors and I got together to cross-promote Black Friday deals on our books. Unlike last year, I have 3 books instead of 1, and the deals will be better.

For example, Dare and Deny will be selling at $9 (plus shipping). This is $1 off from what I normally sell them on my website. Defy will also be $1 off. But, the real deal is going to be the 3 book set. If you buy Dare, Deny, and Defy as a 3 book set, it’ll be $25 (plus shipping). If you figure that out, that is $8 for Dare and Deny and $9 for Defy. In other words, if you’ve been waiting to get your hands on the paperbacks, this would be a good time to do it.

To promote the Black Friday sale, we’re looking for bloggers to post about the sale. In return for your time and effort of posting, you’ll be able to choose a free ebook from the ones offered by the below authors:
