Fabulous Friday... and an Update

Happy Friday everyone. Thought I'd pop out the cave long enough to share some news.

On the Nonfiction Front, I have a NEW TITLE for my upcoming book on resiliency for girls:

A Girl's Guide to Redefining Normal: Finding Your Place in a Mixed-Up World

This book is near and dear to my heart, as my girls are the exact audience for the book. Here's a little more about it:

Finding your unique voice in a noisy world can be hard. Very hard. But not if you have a great guide. A Girl's Guide to Redefining Normal: Finding Your Place in a Mixed-Up World" is a must read for girls in grades 7–10 as they enter the tumultuous world of adolescence. Packed with fun worksheets and quizzes, as well as stories from older girls and women, A Girl's Guide to Redefining Normal covers everything a teenage girl needs to know on the journey toward her own identity. Proven strategies for dealing with stress management, relational aggression, being safe online, navigating the changing mother-daughter relationship, and more make this the ultimate guide for any girl to get through the teen years and discover her unique point of view in the world. 

The release date has officially been moved up to April 1, 2013. I am SO SO EXCITED! 

Many of you have helped with the project in some way, making this one of my favorite things to work on so far. 

Look for the book on Goodreads soon!

In the fiction front, things are fabulous also. TRANSCEND is getting a final edit in preparation for publication. Who knows, its possible that may release a tad early too. 
LIBERA ME may kill me, but early feedback indicates that the series is just getting better and better. That's certainly my goal!
If you want to get in on any of the launch activities for either book, be sure to fill out the form below.

 I guess that's it for now. Back into the cave I go. More exciting things on the horizon!


  1. I'm sorry, but I don't see a form. D:

  2. So weird - I thought I had it on there when I posted it. Oh you go! THANKS for letting me know

  3. Cool, Christine! My next Scholastic book pubs on April 1, 2013, too! We can be book *twins*. :-)

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…
