What a way to start 2012....

Happy New Year! I woke up nice and early this morning, ready to spend a few hours editing. After getting comfortably ensconced into my cave, I opened the document. In truth, I wasn't feeling it. You know what I mean - I was feeling a little too angsty, too...whatever.
So I went online and chatted with a couple friends. Finally, after squandering away too much time, I settled back into work, reading through the manuscript one more time to focus this round of revisions.
After an hour or so, I took a quick internet break. I cleaned through my emails, deleting a few announcements, and such without reading. Until I got an email saying congrats for the news in Publisher's Lunch.

What??? I didn't have news in Publisher's Lunch Weekly.

Or did I?
I looked through my trash, found the announcement and read this:

Children's: Young Adult
Christine Fonseca's DIES IRAE, and the Requiem series, in which the battle between good and evil just got a little more complicated, pitched as a Romeo-and-Juliet tale of demons and angels, to Compass Press, in a nice deal, in a four-book deal, for publication in February 2012 (US).

AHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!  What a way to start the year! I know most of you knew I was publishing the series from my announcement a few weeks ago, but I wanted to share the news officially.

If you are interested in participating in the blog tour for DIES IRAE or the first book in the series, LACRIMOSA - just fill out the form linked here.

And thank you all for your support over the last several years. This series is near and dear to my heart. I am so excited to get to share it with all of you.

Okay - back to cleaning, etc for me. I will be back on Monday with new features and new fun!

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…
