At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most… 
At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring. 
She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….
A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment with her demon army.
Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…
When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.
Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.
And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.

“… I seriously loved ever minute and I am so looking forward to reading the next book in this series.” ~Hashtag Minxes Love Books

“The plot is fast-paced and packed with tons of action and emotion.  I would recommend it for anyone who reads paranormal/action novels, or anyone who simply loves to read books from a very talented author.”  ~Brooke’s Review

“Omgosh this book was so great!  I couldn’t put it down.  It has such a great story line that just grips you from the beginning.”  ~Liz’s Review

D.A. Roach has been telling stories since she was a young girl in the suburbs of Chicago. In college she met the man of her dreams, her happily ever after, and married him 2 weeks after graduating. They have 3 kids together and a pet cockatiel named Gimli. D.A. did not find a love for books until after college. Her parents were immigrants from Lithuania and found tv and radio easier ways to hear stories so they did not do much reading or encourage it. But once she finished college and D.A. had free time, she discovered how amazing it was to get lost in a story. D.A. is a full time mom and wife. When she is not doing domestic things (laundry, bills, etc) she is writing, reading, creating mixed media art, and helping beautify her kids’ school landscape. Oh, and she is ALWAYS listening to music. Her favorite authors include Rebecca Donovan, Richelle Mead, Larissa Ione, Stephanie Meyer, E.L. James, and Sylvia Day. Reading great works from authors like these has motivated D.A. to write her own stories. She hopes to make positive changes in the world with her art and writing.


As Summer Begins to Fade into Fall…

Summer keeps me busy, or shall I say a bustling house of children home on summer break keeps me busy?  I knew that if I began writing, I would not want to stop.  So, to keep from feeling frustrated, I banned myself from writing until the kids are back in school.  However, releasing a book in June promises to add events and obligations to the schedule.  I’ve enjoyed the ride, learned so much about launching books, helping others with their book releases, editing, and promos.  And I’ve met some pretty amazing people that I am glad to call friends.  By the way, there is just 17 days left of summer fun, 17 days till the writing begins.

In these last days, I am wrapping up my second blog tour.  The blog tours have been a great way for others to learn about Rarity and gain some reviews.  I wish I could do them all the time but they cost money and I do want to make a profit on the book.  I used Enticing Journeys and HEA Book Tours for the tours.  I recommend both companies very highly.  Both had professional, amazing ladies working hard to make the tours successful.  I have no complaints.

I also put together my blog post for the My Crazy Corner YA/NA Blogfest.  This blogfest will feature blog posts from a ton of great authors.  We will use our creative juices to craft interesting posts to draw you in.  My blog post will include a book trailer for Rarity and a BRAND NEW RARITY CHAPTER!  The new chapter is just a bonus chapter for those that loved Rarity and didn’t want the story to end.  This is my gift to you. I’ll post details when it goes live.

Finally, I’ll be signing and selling books and bookmarks at the Carmel-Clay Public Library Author Fair in Carmel, IN on August 22nd from 1-4pm.  For those of you that are local, come on out and meet some Indy authors!
