The Launch of AWESOMENESS - Day 1

Once again I get to wish my best bud success with another launch. Few things make me happier then screaming WOO HOO for Elana Johnson and her books.

Today, I get to SCREAM for SURRENDER. Yep, that's right, today is the official launch day for SURRENDER. And I just couldn't let the day go by without some sort of celebration...
so, I am doing a couple of things. Be sure to read the WHOLE post so you can get in on the giveaways...

First, I am bringing each of the main characters from the series to you in a very unique way. See, I asked Elana a few "simple" questions - what are the characters' favorite place to visit in our world, what are their fav Olympic sport, and what music/band would they like? Needless to say, Elana wanted to KILL ME. I think her exact words were "What? They don't live in the same world. They don't what Olympics or bands are... Music is forbidden in Freedom... And there's a huge wall around the city. They don't think of travelling or anything like that..."
But, we talked it through and came up with some AWESOME answers inspired by each of the main characters. 

Today I am focusing on Vi. We all know Vi as the angsty, fiesty, somewhat emo-ish heroine from POSSESSION. So, what did Elana tell me about her:

Vi hasn’t had much experience with music, food, sports, or free choice. She’s not sure what she likes and what she doesn’t. She’d order her eggs fifteen different ways until she found the type she liked best. Her mom used to sing old musicals to her, so that’s her music of choice, and she is quite fond of salted almonds. 

In addition to the daily character intros, I am giving away 2 copies of REGRET EVERY DAY (Tuesday through Sat - Leave a blog comment daily to be entered) AND a special grand prize that includes one paperback copy of POSSESSION and one hardback copy of SURRENDER! Told ya it would be AWESOME. Just enter the rafflecopter form below to get your daily entry for the REGRET contest and the giveaway. WOO HOO!!!

And that is NOT ALL - I am also helping celebrate the launch with a bunch of other authors with ANOTHER epic giveaway. Just check it out:

And finally, I'll be participating in Elana's NEVER SURRENDER BLOGFEST next week (In addition to celebrating the release of MEA CULPA). All you have to do is post about a time you didn't surrender to some hard thing in your life. 
Want to get in on the fun and show Elana how much she means to ALL of us? Just sign up for the Blogfest here.

WOO HOO!!! Let's make this launch EPIC!

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…
