The Tour, NaNo, Giveaways....Oh My!!

First, I wish all of my East Coast buddies a safe day. Hopefully the storm is not ravaging too badly outside your window today. 

Now, I have so much to talk about, to report...

First - how many of you have tried the Angelic Order Quiz??? So far, I know of several Mediators, Sentinals and even an UnHoly or two. Click here to complete the FB quiz. And be sure to let me know how yours turned out.

On to NaNo news. We are a mere two days from NaNo - the month in which a few crazy writers commit to drafting a 50K novel in 30 days. It sounds daunting I know...and in fact, it is! I have attempted it three other times. Completed it only once. This year will also be a stretch. I won't be posting any word counts until after Nov 9. 

Why you ask? I have major edits (final edits) due on Nov 9 for my nonfiction, so nothing happens until then are completed. 

Then I am all about NaNo.

So, how will I prepare to write roughly 2400 words a day? By outlining, of course! (Those that know me knew I would answer it this way...)

So today and tomorrow are all about a skeleton outline to guide my way through NaNo. Since I am using the month to write the last in the Requiem series, it won't be too hard...maybe. The story took some HUGE twists and turns in book #2...

Which leads me to Libera Me news. First, I don't think it'll actually be released tomorrow. Probably more like Thursday or Friday. But that won't stop the tour...

And here are the stops for the week:

I will have them on my side bar too...
And don't forget about the contests:

What would you do to prepare for NaNo?


  1. Hi Christine!
    Apparently, I am a Mediator --I can totally see myself as that! :-D

    To prepare--ugh...I may do some outlin...oh who am i kidding? I'm a panster! I tend to need to start writing first, only then can I see where my story is going, and then maybe I can do some sort of maybe the second week...?

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…
