It's finally here. The sequel to Grasping at Eternity has been released into the world!
*breathes into paper bag*
Taking Back Forever is now available.

eBook available for purchase at:

Paperbacks should be available in the next two weeks.

Onto the fun stuff...
 I have to give away prizes to celebrate!

Xpresso Book Tours is hosting my release blitz, and lots of amazing bloggers will be helping spread the word about Taking Back Forever starting today through June 8th. 
Of course, there will be prizes. 
Each participating blog will be giving away an ebook bundle of Grasping at Eternity and Taking Back Forever

Plus, one grand prize winner from the blitz entries will receive a Kindrily themed prize pack which includes: 
Paperback of Grasping at Eternity (Signed)
Paperback of Taking Back Forever (Signed)
Don’t Be a Luna-tic nail polish by China Glaze
When Stars Collide nail polish by China Glaze
 Harmony candle (handmade by the real life Krista who inspired the character Krista in the Kindrily series).
As if the nail polishes weren't cool enough--it's almost like China Glaze has read my books, that's how perfect their color names are! And nope, I didn't plan for the colors to match the covers of book 1 & 2. It just MAGICALLY worked out that way--the winner will also have their very own Harmony candle, handmade by Krista! (Real life Krista is even more awesome and almost as magically gifted as the Krista in the book.)
The Harmony candle will be purple and scented with a specially made dark and exotic fragrance in honor of Harmony from the kindrily.  

Enter here then keep scrolling to see how else you can win!

Once Upon a Darkness by Aria Kane will be available from Entranced Publishing June 17!
Gretchen and her twin brother, Hank, were abandoned to a zombie horde when they were five years old. Intended to be a sacrifice by their zealot parents, they were instead rescued by The Company. Raised to become soldiers in the war against zombies, they now provide safe passage through danger zones, one contract at a time.
Clint's only skill is war, but he's weary of killing other men. When his contract with the Marines runs out, he takes a job on Gretchen's team, hoping that the search-and-rescue life will suit him better.
On Clint's second day, their four-man team is attacked, drugged, and taken to a prison full of frightened civilians. The only way in or out is by helicopter and, here, their enemies are human. One by one, the captives are culled from the holding area.  Rumors say the facility director uses the prisoners as experimental subjects for the testing of a zombie cure.
When Hank is taken, Clint and Gretchen must put aside their personal feelings and find a way out of the prison, surrounded by thousands of starving zombies, before Hank becomes just one more disposable guinea pig in the hands of a twisted mad woman.
