Aydan's Favorites - And A Giveaway Chance

Happy Wednesday! Today is a special day for me. Besides being the "official" launch day, and the day-after book birthday for Michelle Zink's A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS, it is also that day that it HIT know, really hit me that I am a PUBLISHED fiction author. So WOOT!!!! Definitely time to celebrate!

And it is also time for another "getting to know Aydan" post. Today, I thought it would be fun if Aydan shared some of his favs, just like Nesy had before.

MOVIE: - Legion. Yea, I know, but it was pretty fab. The whole Michael/Gabriel moment - pretty funny.
ANTICIPATED MOVIE: - Dark Knight Returns, hands down. I mean, seriously, just check out the trailer:

BOOK: - I am a lover of the classics - Dante's Divine Comedy, Milton's Paradise Lost, any of Virgil's poems. But I love more modern books too. Even YA. I loved EVERNEATH, though I think the author got some of the deets wrong. And DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE - fabulous. I am reading A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS right now, due to Christine's recommendation.
SONG: - I made a list for you all for Friday's post, so all I will say right now is that I really like Linkin Park, Nine Inch Nails, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Evanescence. And yes, I love Mozart's Requiem too. intervention)
EARTHLY PLACE TO VISIT: - Like Nesy, I like cathedrals. But I really love Gothic architecture in general. In NYC, I have a fav bridge I share with Nesy, so I guess I'll say that is one of my favs. As is the Peace Fountain Nesy mentioned.

VIDEO GAME: - Okay, I'll admit it - I am sort of a WoW lover. Seriously. EPIC game! I basically like anything where I get to fight. Hard Core.
EARTHLY FOOD: - I'm not into food, no really. I prefer souls for my nourishment.
COLOR: - Black. Duh.

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…
