Truce is here! Available on #Amazon for $3.99 or FREE with #KindleUnlimited
Book 1 in the Aftermath series, a continuation of The Hunt series that moves to a more mature audience, New Adult, rather than Young Adult. I really hope you enjoy it and I am already working on the next story: Bounty. Please consider leaving a review on Amazon and/or #Goodreads.
Here is what people are already saying about it:

Whew, aftermath, indeed!
I had the pleasure of editing this new spinoff to The Hunt series, where readers will learn what followed when Maeleigh and Gearden joined Lugh beneath the surface in an attempt to prepare the Seelie for the world above.
With the contract broken, nothing would prevent the faeries from returning to their rightful place amongst the druids, lycans, vampires... even the humans. Of course, the only humans aware of their existence were the very ones who fought to keep their kind imprisoned for over two thousand years. With prejudices to erode, pack politics to filter through, mysterious murders and the overwhelming task of trying to control her ever-growing power, Maeleigh has no small task ahead.
Any fan of the previous trilogy will be welcomed by the action and mystery littered throughout the story, and will most definitely enjoy the steamy new twist that awaits them. (less)
Cody Phoenix rated it 🌟🌟🌟🌟
I was pleasantly surprised with the lead female character and her strength even with a disadvantage. The storyline was strong and well written.
Lacie Jones rated it 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I received an advanced copy from the author and I am leaving this review voluntarily. Goodness, this book was.. I cannot seem to find the perfect words. I love that the heroine is deaf, an alpha, druid, badass demi goddess who doesn't back down from a challenge! She has a circle of people that are drawn to her because of who she is. This fierce woman faces every obstacle thrown her way and gains loyalty and trust along the way. This author truly has a gift to draw a reader in with her imagery.
It's finally time! Transcending From Light is available for pre-order now on Amazon Kindle.

Check out the cover of Truce: Book 1 of the Aftermath series! Maeleigh and Gearden's next book in their story. Remember, this book is listed as ADULT, not YA. If you're not shy about some explicit steamy scenes and a few more curse words, this will still adhere to the previous theme in The Hunt books. Taking ARC requests now, limited spots though. Contact me HERE if you're interested in being one of the firsts to read and review.
Not too much to report at the moment, except that Descending Into Darkness and Ascending Into Light now have new edits! Yay! I'm looking into getting new covers for the debut of the third and last book, but that wont be until later this year, but still exciting!
Also, it looks like Beneath the Surface is starting to pick up more readers, there are more and more pages read each day, so I'm super stoked about that! Thank you all to those who are reading.
At the moment, most of my time is focused on getting stuff ready for my kids to start online schooling in a couple weeks. What are your plans for your kiddos this year? No judgement one way or the other, just curious. I'm going through Washington Connections Academy and will be starting with a strictly online curriculum for my oldest, 8 soon to be 9 year old.
Hope you all are staying sane and happy.
Conflictions of an Author:
You write a story, the first in a series, and you publish it for the world to deem it worthy or not. Surprisingly, it gets a pretty good review and following for a new, indie-published author.
Taking all the commentary from reviewers, you develop a second and a third book, but you know you aren't doing the original story justice by keeping to the tone it's been set in, which was great for the story at the time, for the upcoming books. So, you take a leap, and huge risk, by changing the genre so no one is surprised when you add more adult language, sex (though I'm trying to keep an implicit tone for that), and another main character and you HOPE your fans wont hate it. You PRAY you wonder anger those who have fallen in love with the original character and love story. And you BEG the powers that be out there, that this wont be the downfall of your writing career.
All that said, I am constantly reminding myself that I'm not just writing this story for the story fans. I'm also writing this for me. This was a dream I had when I was twenty, woke up and wrote a one page short story to remind myself later when I wanted to actually write it. A few days later I added a few pages, then nothing for another five years. Then I added a whole other 150 pages. It was just the climax and ending I was missing, which didn't get finished until 8 years later, when someone recommend I finish the novel before turning it into a script, which I still have plans for.
Here I am, nine months later, I have a pretty significant, to me at least, fan following for The Hunt series. I try to answer their questions in the next books, sealing up plot holes when they were pointed out to me, or offering closure when I didn't in the previous book. But in this, I am going to have to take a large risk and write it how it was meant to be, like I had been. Young Adult comes with a lot of restrictions and expectations, let me tell you. But I want to try and honor the story and characters for the fans who have fallen love with them.
I hope this makes sense. I am writing a particularly turning point sort of scene right now in Truce and I really hope it doesn't upset you all.
Thanks for reading.

Here it is you all! I'm so excited to share this with everyone on 8/15. If you want an early preview, SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER.
Truce is already available for Pre-Order on Amazon and is set to release on September 30th.
Email me a proof of pre-order of Truce to AlainnaMacPherson@gmail.com and I will send you a deleted chapter on the eve of release day.
Howdy! I thought I'd share some things on here for anyone who cares.
First, I've added stuff to the store now, so check that out if you wanted a signed copy of some books, swag and even book covers for the indie-authors out there. I have been dabbling with some minor graphic designing for book covers, lately, and I thought I'd share the ones that weren't terrible for authors to use on a low budget.
Next up, I am over halfway done with Truce, so expect that to be out and available for your reading pleasure come the beginning of October. I hope to also have the last book of the Descending series done in November/December time, as well. I have plans of a spin off series of Gearden and Maeleigh's story that I will write at the same time as you don't have to follow Maeleigh's last few stories to read the spin off, title TBA. It will be YA though and sooo soo good, I am chomping at the bit to write it but have some things to finish first.
Then, there is Beneath the Surface. It's coming out in 15 days, and I wanted to make sure that you all get your ebook copy for the sale price of $2.99 before it goes up on release day. Pre-Order HERE
Finally, sign up for the newsletter and once I get to 50 subscribers, I will do a random drawing of just the subscribers each month. Eeek! Let me know what things you'd like to see in the giveaways. I already have a few things in mind that will be awesome.
