Tea With Coffee Media will release “The Desert Siren: The Desert Seas Book One” by debut author Jessie Sadler. This story is filled with ocean legends, merfolk, sirens, and selkie.
Trapped in a nightmare, twenty-four-year-old Sahara is pushed into a sea of new opportunities when she leaves her desert home for a musical symposium in the middle of the ocean. There, she discovers new secrets about herself, including that she might be the savior the Sea has been looking for. But facing off against a tyrant mermaid is the least of her worries as she battles for the freedom of the Sea.
Jessie Sadler is the Blizzard Queen. Hailing out of Winnipeg, she has been known to freeze her butt off during the frigid winters. She spends that icy season filling notebooks with ideas, stories, and characters who have a tale to tell. With some reluctance, she stepped out onto the thin ice of sharing her work publically. The ice cracked, and she was plunged into a new world.
Founded in 2022 by husband and wife team Grace and Tyler Wittkofsky, Kelsey Lovelady, Aaran Jolly, and Victoria Moxley, Tea With Coffee Media is a team of indie authors, designers, and editors who have a goal of helping indie media producers make their dreams become a reality. Their modest press has aspirations to help as many indie media producers succeed as possible.
Tyler Wittkofsky is a multi-genre author, blogger, award-winning marketing and communications professional, and fierce mental health advocate from the southern coast of North Carolina. Tyler has been writing short stories for as long as he can remember. Growing up the grandson of an English teacher, Tyler had a constant fuel to his creative fire in his grandmother.
He started writing poetry in 2012 to cope with his mental health struggles with anxiety, bipolar, and depression. Using poetry as an escape, he developed a unique style of poetry that has left readers saying, “Tyler’s voice is compassionate, even while suffering, and I felt the despair and loneliness seeping out through his words.” His first poetry collection, composed of poems written from 2012 to 2016, was published in March 2020.
He began his first novel in 2019. The novel, (Not) Alone, was a story based on true events surrounding the struggles of living with mental illness. Described by readers as “An Intimate Closure with Mental Illness,” this began Tyler’s revitalized passion for mental health. He decided that his writing would have a focus on mental health.
His next novel, The Seeds of Love: Sunflower Kisses Book One, was his debut romance novel and debut series. Described as “a great job of relaying the realistic emotions of young love and emotional drama that is particularly difficult for young adults…”, his debut romance novel was met with much success.
In 2021, Tyler began writing short stories. He was accepted into several anthologies in mid-2021, expected for publication in early 2022. He also writes supernatural horror and historical fantasy for the online magazines In the Pantheon and In the Crescent. He has work published through Five Minute Affairs as well.
He built his website www.TeaButWithCoffee.com in 2021. On this site, he started his blogging journey. He began writing book reviews, interviewing indie authors, and writing on mental health. This passion sparked a new desire to connect with more people. Tyler is currently in the beginning stages of two podcasts that he hopes to be live by the end of 2021.
Tyler currently lives in Leland, North Carolina with his wife, Grace, and dogs, Dutch and Belle.
