I'm at the Toronto Public Library

Well not me personally, but I'm there in the spirit of my words! The Gathering Darkness is now available in paperback at the  

Do you reside in Toronto? Just visiting? Stop by one of four libraries (click link for details) and check out my Young Adult novel, The Gathering Darkness.

Steeped in reincarnation, witches, fairy lore, mystery, and love, this dark and magical paranormal romance will capture both teens and adults and keep you glued to the pages. You may even have to sleep with a light on.


They say, "Third time's the charm," and for sixteen-year-old Brooke Day, they had better be right. She's been here before, twice in fact, and so has the darkness awaiting her return.

When Brook Day is forced to leave Boston for the village of Deadwich, she thinks her life is over. Before long, her new friends start acting strange—downright evil. But worse then that; nightmares she's had her whole life become reality.

Enter Marcus Knight. He's popular, hot and the only person Brooke can trust. Not to mention, they've shared the same nightmares.

As the equinox approaches...
Darkness and light merge for the first time in a century.
Soul-mates reunite.
Magic awakens.




Excerpt from Chapter Seven:

"A stick snapped beneath my foot echoing eerily through the trees. I jumped, and so did my heart. The sharp caw of a lone crow followed from somewhere up above the treetops, sending chills down my spine. I lifted my gaze but could see nothing through the thick canopy of twisted tree branches, but a few specks of darkening sky.

Unpleasant warmth seeped under my skin as the darkness came alive. I blinked away the trickle of moisture that ran down my forehead and into my eyes, stinging them, but I didn't move. My body was on lock-down now, as it always was in the face of my worst fear - the dark. It closed in on me, becoming thick and heavy. I was too terrified to move a muscle for fear the darkness would see me."

If you're in the Toronto area, check out my book - literally. I would love to see your pictures of where you found them - library - shelf - you reading to a pet. You can post them on my author Facebook page here: Facebook.

Here are a few places I found The Gathering Darkness first edition (old cover).

Store window in Chester, Nova Scotia.
At Chapters - Indigo, triangled between, Star Wars, Star Trek, and War Craft. Not a bad place to be, although they put my Young Adult Paranormal for teens in the fantasy section. But I wasn't complaining :)

Land of Kaldalangra by Kristi Strong

It started out as one book, expanded to tell the "ever after", and then began to bring in the next generation. The Land of Kaldalangra has taken many twists and turns since it began with the publishing of The Lady of Steinbrekka back in 2012, and that now includes a full make-over! When I started writing The Lady of Steinbrekka, I never realized that it would become a series, and the same happened with Heart of Kylassame, and Soul of Asimina. About the time I started working on the fourth book (hopefully to be out in 2016 or 2017) I realized that this wasn't going to end any time soon, and it was time for it to look like a series.  I had such a great time working with Donna Dull of Sharp Designs (the same cover artist who did Finding Keepers) and she really did a great job of making the covers feel like a series, but still keeping pieces of the originals that I loved so much. It will also be much easier now when I release the next couple of books  (not for a little while though) to make them continue with the beautiful covers.
Presenting, the new look for The Land of Kaldalangra series!
    These will be available for purchase at UtopYAcon in Nashville June 18th - 21st 2015, and are also available on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com
    Purchase these books through Amazon
