Writing From The Heart! by Char Chaffin and Cheryl Yeko

CiCi Cordelia is the pen name for the writing team of BFFs Char Chaffin and Cheryl Yeko. cici-headshot-for-blog

Published authors and Senior Acquiring Editors for Soul Mate Publishing, we share a love for well-written stories infused with our favorite romantic genres: paranormal, suspense, and erotica.

We’ve been friends since 2012, when we started critiquing for each other. We found ourselves swapping ideas and lending support that spilled over into a similarity of writing style and a love of the same genres. In 2014 we thought it might be fun to write a novella together. The result, a western romance titled RODEO KING, cemented not only a firm and lasting friendship but a wonderful partnership as well.

In 2015 we took it a step further when we decided to write paranormal under the pen name CiCi Cordelia.

As editors, we’ve been working on a project for Soul Mate that we brainstormed. We’d like to tell you a little about it.

An ancient legend spanning eras, continents . . . and worlds.

To some, it’s nothing more than a dream.

To others, a pretty fairytale handed down through the generations.

For those in critical need of their own happy ending, a gift.

With thirteen novellas spanning several popular romance genres and fifteen participating authors, we foresee something for every romance reader.  tsmtauthors

You can learn more about The Soul Mate Tree here:


REALM OF THE DRAGON, by CiCi Cordelia will be released in January, 2017. 


Thrust into a realm made of legend, fantasy, and unbridled passion, Lily Kiers faces violent resentment and jealousy from extremely powerful enemies. Amidst fierce creatures whose very existence defy all common sense, Lily pieces together a past she could never have imagined.

Claimed as mate by Kord, Prince of Battle Draconian, their love will not be denied, even as malevolent forces plot to rip them apart.


One book a month will be released thereafter, through January, 2018. Each book is a standalone, but the legend of The Soul Mate Tree drives the stories.
