After inadvertently saving the world, eighteen-year-old Jessica Martinez is ready to put adventure behind her and settle back into the familiar routine of high school.
Though when she’s offered an opportunity to photograph the inside of an alien space ship, Jess jumps at the chance. After all, she’d be crazy to turn something like that down, right?
Spending time with David on the ship has definite advantages and the two seem to pick up right where they left off. But when Jess discovers a plot to sabotage David’s efforts to establish a new home for his people on another planet, neither David’s advanced tech nor Jess’s smarts will be able to save them.
ASHES IN THE SKY is an action-packed, romantic Sci Fi adventure that will leave readers screaming for more.

Fire in the WoodsExpand to Read the Excerpt
When a plane crashes in the woods near Jess’s home, the boy of her dreams falls out of the sky—literally.
But David’s not here to find a girlfriend. He’s from another planet, and if Jess can’t help him get back to his ship, he’ll be stuck on Earth with nothing to look forward to but the pointy end of a dissection scalpel. But her father runs their house like an army barracks. and with an alien on the loose, Major Dad isn’t too keen on the idea of Jess going anywhere.
So how the heck is she supposed to help the sweetest, strangest, and cutest guy she’s ever met? Hiding him in her room probably isn’t the best idea. Especially since her Dad is in charge of the squadron searching for David.
That doesn’t mean she won’t do it.
It just means she can’t get caught. Helping David get home while protecting her heart—that’s gonna be the hard part.
After all, she can’t really fall for a guy whose not exactly from here. As they race through the woods with Major Dad and most of the U.S. military one breath behind them, Jess and David grow closer than either of them anticipated. But all is not what it seems. David has a genocide-sized secret, and one betrayal later, they are both in handcuffs as alien warships are positioning themselves around the globe. Time is ticking down to Armageddon, and Jess must think fast if she’s to save the boy she cares about without sacrificing Earth—and everyone on it.
FIRE IN THE WOODS is Star-Crossed meets Close Encounters of the Third Kind!
I love the color tones in both of these covers. I’ve always loved those gradient glows. and of course, the subtle title styles. To be honest, the genre of sci-fi as a whole tends to have beautiful covers.
I saw something last night that reminded me of Ashes in the Sky’s cover.
I went looking for a replacement for my Pink Panther watch, and realized that now it’s considered a collector’s item, and is going for $100+ on eBay.
So I started looking at watches on Etsy…..I searched Disney ones, but most of those were expensive too. I found one that was AWESOME. It reminded me of Ashes in the sky…unfortunately, that one was also definitely out of my price range. BUT IT’S AWESOME.
So I have to share it. Here it is:
Cool, right? ….so if you see any cute, reasonably priced watches, let me know!
