WWO - An Exciting Year Ahead

First, I just have to thank you all again for the excitement of the week - your comments, emails, tweets, etc, have been inspirational! Some of you have asked "what's next"...well, a lot actually. And I thought I should share it all with you. So, here is a breakdown of what I'm working on for the next year. Be sure to scroll down to the end to see ways you can participate in the upcoming fun.


 - As you know this is a Phantom of the Opera inspired YA thriller. Vastly different from both the Requiem Series and most other books, this is the story of Ien Montgomery, a young man born into one of New York's wealthiest families. Here is the blurb: 
"All seventeen-year-old composer Ien Montgomery desires is to find his muse – someone to ease the burdens of his family’s rigid expectations and the recent death of his older brother. When he meets a beautiful violin-prodigy, Kiera McDougal, his music takes on new life. With her, he imagines a future outside of his parents’ control. That is, until a horrible accident tears them apart.
Sent to die in a sanatorium, Ien’s obsession for Kiera grows unbearable. Tortured by thoughts he can’t escape and the truth of his monstrous disfigurement, he flees, desperate to exact revenge on the people that ruined his life – his parents. But, vengeance is empty. Betrayed by those closest to him, Ien discovers that the price for his happiness may be his sanity."
Set during the height of the Gilded Age, this book combines the tragedy of Hamlet with the psychological twists and turns of the Black Swan.

I am releasing the cover to this soon. Wanna help with that? Wanna chance to win the book? Fill out the form at the bottom of this post. I am also planning an EPIC blog tour, so be on the look out for more fun, including a fabulous "masquerade" inspired launch party!

Oct - LIBERA ME - The Requiem series continues with this latest installment. This book, told from Aydan and Zane's POVs, follows the continuing story of Aydan as he faces life as a human. He has found the girl he believes is Nesy, despite her complete lack of memories of that life. No matter how hard he tries to help the memories surface, Aydan can not convince her that she is his beloved. Maybe she isn't? Maybe she is something worse, something he fears. Maybe she is the evil Azza has sent to destroy him. In this story, we see two completely different characters both fighting for a future that is unsure. Only one thing is certain, the line between good and evil has NEVER been so blurred.

The amazing SUPAGURL will be helping with the tour for this book - and it promises to be EXCITING!

Dec - Winter Wonders - I am thrilled to announce that I have a short story in the anthology WINTER WONDERS. This story entitled Illuminati is a companion story to the Requiem series. In this story, we again meet Lorelei (from Lacrimosa) and her mom and learn more about the race of humans, SEERS, Azza is so determined to kill. This is the start of a series I hope to talk more about in the year to come.

For those of you who want more angels and demons, Seers and Jinn, this story and series is definitely for you! Expect to hear a little about some of your favorite Requiem characters too.

The anthology proceeds will all go to support literary - a cause I am passionate about. Be on the lookout for more information in the months to come.

2013 - Early Spring brings the conclusion to the Requiem Series, with a new short (bridging books 2 and 3) and the final novel in the series. Will Nesy and Aydan ultimately find their way to each other? Will Zane find peace? What will happen between Azza and Mikayel? It all comes to a head in this final installments of this series
2013 also brings a new nonfiction book, REDEFINING NORMAL. In this book written for teen girls, I tackle the difficult subjects of resiliency, perfectionism, and the Imposter Syndrome, with tips, stories, and strategies for finding your own authentic self.

Other projects for 2013 that I can't quite talk about include a companion series for the Requiem Series, and more psychological thrillers (my new fav genre to write)

Whew! What an exciting time! Clearly I may be somewhat absent from blogging and the internet as I attempt to meet rather TIGHT deadlines, and craft new stories for the years to come. And thank you again for all of you who read my stories - without you, my work with be nothing more than a few thoughts in my head!

If you want to be part of the fun with these books, reading and reviewing, participating in blog tours, etc, complete this form. 

I won't be working on the specific details until late summer, but it's good to start getting info now.

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…
