14 days and counting...

I can't believe there are only two more weeks until Transcend is in the world. Early reviews are creating a bit of buzz with feedback that leaves me humbled. Just look:

  • "Thank you Christine for writing such a thought-provoking and emotionally heart wrenching book. I haven't felt this way after reading in quite a while!" - Jen from Geekygamergal's Musings
  • "I am completely and utterly blown away...pure artistry at it's best." - Sylvia, moderator of Never Too Old for YA Books on facebook and goodreads
  • "It is such a powerful and deep story it will leave you completely breathless." - Brooke from The Cover Contessa
  • "a tragically beautiful story that I could not put down " - Shelly, Middle School teacher
  • "This is so powerful, so deep, and dark. It took me on an amazing journey into places most people fear to go, pulling me along, leaving me breathless." - Heather McCorkle, Author of To Ride A Puca
  • " hauntingly dark and achingly beautiful, a story of love, loss, and obsession set against the decadent backdrop of historic New York that sucked me in and wouldn’t let go" - Michelle McLean, Author of Treasured Lies
  • " disturbing and intense and utterly unique" - Ali Cross, Author of Become

I don't know what to say - I am humbled just doesn't begin.

To celebrate the early buzz, Compass Press decided to release a Special Edition Hardback that I will number and sign. These are truly one-of-a-kind and will only be available in very limited supply and only through Compass Press. Click the paypal button below to pre-order 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…
