RAINE will never SURRENDER - more celebrations for the SURRENDER Launch!

Welcome to DAY 4 of my SURRENDER Launch tribute. First, the winners of  yesterday's REGRET giveaway are:

LAURA (fuonlyknew)

I didn't pick another as the others who commented have already won a copy - so I added it to the grand prize!! WOOOO HOOOOO

Congrats to everyone who has won so far this week...and keep entering!

And now - today's character feature - RAINE:
Raine is a new character, introduced in SURRENDER. Besides LOVING her name, I LOVE Raine - she is such a compelling character in so many ways. I can't wait until all of you read the book and tell me what you think of her as well....

But first, here is a little more about her based on the questions I asked Elana:

If Raine had been exposed to music her whole life, she’d love “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. She loves that kind of soothing stuff. She’d love to see the White Cliffs of Dover, and she’d give anything to watch Gunner fly in the Olympics. (Okay, maybe that’s not an event—yet.) She’d eat chocolate and caramel until the world ends, she loves it that much.

See why I love her so much?!?

You can see the other characters answers here - Vi (Tuesday), Jag (Wed), Zenn (Thurs).

As I mentioned in the original post, 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 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.

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…
