I met NaNoWriMo Author Layla J. Omorose at Penned Con 2016. We shared a table and were able to chat about our books and writing for two whole days! It was awesome! Layla is a wonderful woman with a creative imagination. Here's some words from Layla:
I currently have two books that are available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, Eternal Light (which is a Hound series novel) and Darknight: Ancient Bloodlines (which is a Faye princess novel). I am currently working on several stories, including the next books in the Hound and Faye Princess series, that are currently entitled: Eternal Earth and Darknight: Dawn of the Red Sun. I hope to have these two books out by the time August rolls around in 2017. I am also still working on my first novel from last year's Nano, called Seducing the Black Prince. This is my own little twist on Beauty and the Beast. I have taken elements from Disney's version of the story as well as the original story while putting my own creative twist on it. I have several other titles that are one hold until i finish this first group of books.
Honestly, if you would have asked me when I first started working on Eternal Light back in 2009 if I would now have several stories in the works, be going to conventions, meeting readers, and actually working towards my dream I wouldn't have believed it. But now I look back and see that the moment I first started to write when I was in junior high school there was no other path for me.
I think Nano is amazing and it forces me to keep on track of my writing. I am writing more now than ever and a piece of me has finally found peace and a world I finally belong in.

DarKnight review - 5* for interesting creative plot twists and storyline!
DarKnight is an adult fantasy romance novel. The book begins with Tara, the second born princess of the Faye King running away to avoid marrying an ugly, old warlock. Alexios, the King's first in command and Tara's protector is entrusted with finding her. Unfortunately Tara was captured by slave traders. Many other characters are weaved into the plot as the story progresses. It is written in third person so you are able to experience all of the being's points of view. The book has many plot twists and novel unexpected elements and is definitely a page turner.
As I said this is an adult romance book with graphic scenes. If you're not into those you can skip over them to continue with the story but be advised this book may not be appropriate for young readers.
You can find DarKnight here for $0.99! https://www.amazon.com/DarKnight-Ancient-Bloodlines-Faye-Princess-ebook/dp/B00M0THBGK/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1478870692&sr=8-1
All the best,
