Parties, Swag and More - What Will I Reveal Today?

We are almost there - almost ready to reveal the cover of Transcend!

For today, I thought I'd share a little taste of the bookish swag we have put together for this launch. And a little about the party. Because after all, what's a launch without a party, right???

The swag for this launch includes the typical bookmark, magnet, bookish fun. But I also have something very special planned - something that is included in this giveaway, and will be included for those who preorder the book with me, as well as those who buy the book (digital or print) in the first week.

What is it, you ask?

Well, Transcend is definitely a psychological thriller of the classic creptastic type. But, it is also a love story. Ien and Kiera's story. So, I thought it would be great to share with readers the love letters Ien has sent to Kiera throughout the story. While they are referenced in the book, readers only get to actually read one of them...until now. I convinced Ien to share five of his love letters to Kiera with readers. And these are put together in a nice little packet for a fortunate few during the first weeks of the launch.


Which brings me to the party fun - I really LOVE phantom. And I REALLY REALLY love this story! So, I am madly putting together a little Masquerade-inspired party together to launch the book. I am not certain of the details yet, but you can expect masks to be involved. Stay tuned for more information.

And for those who don't live near San Diego or OC (I will likely do launch events in both locales), I am planning some EPIC virtual launch activities on Facebook, Twitter, the Blogoverse and Goodreads. This is really gonna be epic!

And now, before I leave you, a reader asked me what violin music inspired the storyline. The first was the theme from Schindler's list. There were many other violin solos which I will talk about as we get closer to September,  but for now I'll leave you with a great version of the solo:

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the big reveal, and keep entering the giveaway for your chance to win the annotated galley, Ien's letters and more!!! Just fill out the form below.

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…
