Ali Cross's NAME THE BOOK Party and Giveaway!!!

So excited for this week!!! Ali Cross, author of the Desolation Series and an amazing person to boot is launching an amazing giveaway and Name The Book extravaganza. Each of these blogs are featuring a part of an excerpt, character interviews, and more. AND, on each blog is a WORD that is part of a special scavenger hunt.

For my post, Ali shares a special thank you! But before we get to that I wanted to take a moment to thank HER...

For always being there when I need to talk.
For being a great example of perseverance.
For her awesome Ninja spirit.
For the Desolation series.
For the stories still being formed.

Ali is truly a addition to the writing community and I am thrilled to call her a friend! And now for Ali's special guest post:

I’ve sat here and written a dozen posts—in my head. All the while the blank white page mocked me. The blinking cursor singing, “Neener, neener, neener.” Yes, even cursors can mock you when you run out of words.
I don’t usually run out of story-words. I can lay them down like nobody’s business. Writer’s block hasn’t ever (knock on wood) been a problem for me.
No, the words I have trouble finding are the ones that connect me to you—the reader.Because there’s really only two words to be said, and they are, THANK YOU.Thank you for reading.Thank you for taking a chance on my books.Thank you for emailing me, sending me Facebook notes, and, most of all, thank you for leaving reviews.
My stories would only be words on a page, images in my head, if you didn’t read them. When you read them, magic happens. The people and creatures that I’ve only seen in my mind, come to life in yours. You are the magic that gives them life, and for that—thank you!

And now, for the name the book part. Below you will see a mock cover to help put you in the mood for choosing a cover. Your options are DIVINE, CHOSEN, or DESTINED.  

You can vote daily for the name of your choice, but you only get one name. Vote on the rafflecopter 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…
