Welcome to my blog!

My name is Shirelle and I am a brand new author. The first book I ever wrote will soon be released through Beautiful Trouble Publishing. It's a fantasy/romance about a queen and the forbidden love of her guardian. (Who doesn't love a little forbidden love?)

When the publisher sent me this cover I broke down and cried. Was it because I didn't like it? H*ll no!! I mean look at it! It's hot hot HOT! I cried because, for the first time, it seemed real.

I never thought I'd get this far...

I hope you enjoy the book when it's released and don't forget to check out all the amazing authors at BTP! 


  1. Congrats! That is an awesome cover and I can't wait to read the story.

  2. I am so excited for you!! When you showed me the picture I thought YAY it is a real thing that is happening!! Still excited, can't wait to get my copy!!!

  3. So, so, so excited! I can't wait for publication. Tell them to HURRY!!!

  4. Shirrelle,
    You rock so hard. Thank you so much for giving Beautiful Trouble Publishing a chance. We look forward to getting this book out there.

  6. Literally lol! Sorry ladies, but my mom already dibsed him!

  7. I just read your book last night/this morning. I could not stop myself from reading all 600 odd pages in one sitting. I love it! I found your blog because I googled you, hoping to find more of your books and was a bit disappointed to find out this is your first, because I'm hooked and begging for more. After reading The Throne of Teresh, I'll now proceed to stalk your blog for updates on anything else you decide to grace the world with so I can devour it right up! I feel like an addict.... Anyway, AMAZING book, I might attempt to read it again tonight, and know that you've found a loyal reader, because you are a wonderful author. That book not only grew my imagination, it sucked me in, allowed me to experience everything along with Thiera, and had me fighting for the people of Teresh. I thought I had been on an adventure before, well, I was wrong. Thank you. Thank you so much for allowing me to experience such a great novel.

  8. bafoster...I can't thank you enough for what you wrote. Your one comment just made all the struggles, doubts, and rejections worth it. You've also motivated me to try even harder to make the next one better. I hope you will continue to enjoy my stories and thank you again for your very kind words.
