A Big Dark YA Thank You!

So, Weds is here and I was supposed to blog on Dark YA and the books I can not wait for. But, instead I shared my confidence and competition angst.

Since there are a ton of books I really am excited about - I thought I would just mention a couple:

1) TEN by Gretchen McNeil....SO SO SO AMAZING. I read a very early version, and HOLY COW - FABULOUS (you can read about the journey of TEN here)

2) SURRENDER by Elana Johnson - yes, I read and early version of that too - and it is amazing. Those who felt like you had a ton of questions at the end of POSSESSION will really LOVE this book

And next, I need to THANK HEATHER MCCORKLE for her lovely post about my writing. She brought tears of joy to my eyes when I read it this morning. You can read her post here.

Thanks to all of you for keeping me focused and moving forward. I have no words.

What Dark YA books are you excited about?


  1. Aw, you are so awesome. Can't wait for TEN!

  2. Good luck with your literary journey. Maybe this blogfest will get the word out that Dark YA has a market.

  3. So excited for Elana's second book. Yea! I'll have to go check out Ten. I haven't seen anything on that one.

    And what a sweet post!

  4. Aw, you're very welcome sweety. It is much deserved! And yay for Surrender!!! I can hardly wait for it.

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
