Moonshadow’s Guardian

Available now at Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and Apple Books NOW

All Riana has ever wanted is freedom. Unfortunately, that’s the one thing her kind cannot have.

Bound by the curse in her demonic blood for millennia, Riana has tried several times to bend the rules and live out her life in the mortal realm. Now her consistent rule breaking has drawn the attention of Loki, God of Mischief, the main tormentor of Riana’s kind. But instead of punishing her, he offers her the escape she has always desired. All she has to do to is save the kingdom of Moonshadow from a mysterious magical plague.

Armed only with the inherent power of her own blood and Loki’s pet dragon, Riana is determined to fight for the right to create her own destiny.

However, when her mission forces her to destroy the last remnants of an ancient culture, Riana must ask – what is freedom really worth?

Moonshadow’s Guardian is a tale about the meaning of belonging, and the struggle to create a future not defined by your past.

Keeper of the Dawn

Sometimes failure is just the beginning

All Lai has ever wanted is to become a priestess, like her mother and grandmother before her, in service to their beloved goddess. That’s before the unthinkable happens, and Lai fails the trials she has trained for her entire life. She makes the only choice she believes she can: she runs away.

From her isolated desert homeland, Lai rides north to the colder, stranger kingdom of Alanum—a land where magic, and female warriors, are not commonplace.

Here, she hears tales about a mountain city of women guardians and steel forgers, worshiping goddesses who sound very similar to Lai’s own. Determined to learn more about these women, these Keepers of the Dawn, Lai travels onward to find their temple. She is determined to make up for her past failure, and will do whatever it takes to join their sacred order.

Falling in love with another initiate was not part of the plan.

Keeper of the Dawn is a tale of new beginnings, second chances, and the endurance of hope.

Keeper of the Dawn is currently unavailable due to the closure of The Book Smugglers Publishing on December 31st, 2018

What People Say About Keeper of the Dawn

“This novella provided a fascinating escape into an intriguing world, and the worldbuilding is easily where Gunn shines brightest. I could always picture exactly where I was in the story, but the different cultures and belief systems were what really stood out the most. They added depth to the world and created a rich environment for the characters to develop in, and it was this aspect of the story that drew me in and made me want to stay.” ~ T.A. Hernandez

“I almost wish this was a novel and I hope we get more about Lai and Tara in the future! A quick, light fantasy read about a girl piecing together her future. A sweet f/f romance with an ace girl protagonist. The label isn’t used but it’s pretty clear and that’s lovely.” ~ Katharine Locke

“This was a fantastic, quick read with beautifully written characters and a wonderful plot that examines how dreams and goals can be accomplished in a variety of ways.” ~ Redd’s Reads

“The author does a great job of showing the reader a valuable life lesson without over doing it.” ~ Terri A. Wilson
