Weekend Round-Up: Or, where I spill the news about my upcoming releases...

Okay, I know it is not the weekend YET. But, tomorrow the kids are out of school and I get to spend time getting caught up on things...so it feels like a Friday night right now. Which means, it is time for me to spill the beans and share all my bookish news. This is something I plan on doing once a month or so, as I really want to keep you all up to date with the bookish happenings.

So, let's get started...
NON-FICTION

2015 promises to be an AMAZING time for my nonfiction releases. Here is a recap of what's coming, including news about a brand new book I just CAN NOT WAIT to share:

INDIE AND PROUD: FACING YOUR FEARS AND EMBRACING YOUR PASSIONS THROUGHOUT THE PUBLISHING JOURNEY
February 2015

Every writer gets to a point in their path (or many points) when they lose hope, experience fear, and question their passions. This book is all about pushing through the fear, the funk and the doubt and embracing your passions, no matter what where you are with your career. Inspired by the workshops I am conducting at IndieReCon Live in Utah next month, as well as my experience as a life coach and my own fear-filled moments along my path, this book is filled with exercises designed to help you resist burnout and stay connected to your passions along your publishing journey.

Look for this in February 2015!

FICTION

I can't tell you too much about my fiction plans, other than to say this - 

Requiem Series News: 
Be on the lookout for NEW REQUIEM-INSPIRED NOVELS. Yes, that's right, I am bringing back my favorite Requiem characters for a companion series about the Seers, and the story of Nesy and Aydan when they were Elle and Adam. To celebrate the new additions to the series, I am releasing a special "Director's Cut" edition of Dominus, with a few new surprises!
New books coming in 2015.

The Solomon Experiments:
I promised you would not have to wait too long for COLLIDE's sequel. And you won't. My goal - release in EARLY 2015 (like January, I hope). I can't wait to spring on more ups and downs, more thrills with Dakota and David and some unexpected surprises.

Book 2 coming in early 2015.

A NEW Series:
Yep, I have a new series coming. I am not ready to tell you more....at least, not yet. Mwahahahahaha

Okay - that's it for now!!! Be on the look out for updates, very soon.......

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…
