This is my first audiobook … ever … so I’m a wee bit excited!
The second in the series Parallax, is already in production and isn’t too far off from being available as well.
Also both Somniare and Consurge will be available in audiobook very … very soon.
So one more excited gif, and I’ll say adieu … for now.
Okay … later booky peeps, and until next time …
Yep, that’s right …
it’s … it’s …
And it’s been a long time coming. Starblind, the first book in the series, has been through several covers, and one re-release. Now … fiiiiinally Parallax is here!
And the third (Flux) and fourth (Luminosity) books, which will complete the series, will all be released this year. Along with all of them coming out in audiobook this year as well. (I’ll announce news on those things as they come. :D)
For buy links and more info, visit the series page >HERE<.
Until next time …
See, I told you I’d do a post soon. 😉
Anywho … I wanted to officially announce that Starblind, Somniare, and Consurge are all in production to become audiobooks. Now look at the pretty covers for the audiobook editions:
As far as written books go, Parallax (Starblind #2) will be released sometime in April. It’s gone through edits already and is currently in the proofreading stage. I’ll let you all know when an exact release date is picked.
I’m currently writing Flux (Starblind #3) which I hope to be done with by the end of March. Then I’m going to roll right into Luminosity (Starblind #4)to finish up the series. Release dates, at least the month, will be announced soon on those as well.
A few events I’d planned on attending this year have been canceled. As of now, the only signing/event I’m attending is UtopiaCon in Nashville, TN, the end of June. I’d love to see you there! For more info. visit the tab under Events.
Welp, that’s all the updates I have for now. I’m off to work on Flux, which I’m seriously loving right now! We’ll see how long that lasts. heh. Oh, the rollercoaster of emotions … *sigh*
Until next time …
Christmas Lites VI is HERE!
For the third year in a row I’ve been lucky enough to contribute a short story to the Christmas Lites anthology. YAAAAY! And FYI … One-hundred percent of the proceeds from ebooks and paperbacks go to The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. So when you purchase a copy in either format, not only do you get a great book full of wonderful short stories from over 25 different authors from various genres, but you get to contribute to a fantabulous cause! It’s totally win-win.
Here’s more information about this year’s book:
Cthulhu wants to wish you a Merry Christmas. The Fae sprinkle their fairy dust to ensure your light never fades. Assassins and adventures alike keep the spirit of life alive. Even the mob brings their family to the dinner table for glorious feasts.
Authors included in this anthology in order of appearance:
Fiona L. Renton
Angela Yuriko Smith
Monica La Porta
S. Patrick Pothier
Karen Cutler Drecktrah
Brett J. Talley
Laura Kester Duerrwaechter
Frank W. Smith
Feel the magic of the season, the spirit of giving, the love of friends and family. Discover bright new worlds, blood-pumping adventures, true love and heartbreak as you explore the stories inside these covers.
For the sixth year in a row, authors from all over the world combined their efforts and talents to create the anthology in your hands. Not for fame or fortune, but to help those in need. Every dime raised from this anthology goes straight to those who provide the assistance to these people. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence has been helping in ways we can never imagine for years, and we are happy to help support their efforts.
Please visit their website at www.ncadv.org for more information.
They make great gifts for yourself, friends, and family. And if for some reason you’re short on cash and can’t contribute in that manner, please spread the word to those who may be able to. Every little bit helps. 😀
(Ps … I typed up this post on about zero sleep and after a day full of travel. I may or may not be seeing double at this point, so I apologize for any glaring typos, and really hope I wasn’t confusing about anything. I just wanted to get the info out for this ASAP for obvious reasons. 😉 )
Just a bit of an update. Starting December 15th, and lasting through January 20th, all of my ebooks are going to be up for renewal within the Kindle Unlimited program. I’ve decided not to renew said ebooks in the program.
What does that mean?
But this will take a bit of time to happen. So I’ll update buy links as each book is made available in different places such as iBooks, Kobo, B&N etc.
Also, I’m now selling signed paperback books from my website. For details visit the Merchandise tab and scroll on down. 🙂 If you just want a regular paperback, they’re still available everywhere Createspace distributes, FYI.
Okey dokey, I think that’s about it for now. Until next time …
That’s right! Consurge, book two, the conclusion to the Somniare Duology is ALIVE!
You get find it here:
And since I’ve been a super slacker with posting updates on here, I’ll catch everyone up.
What I’m working on now:
Parallax, book two in the Starblind series.
The planned release isn’t be until April of 2017, but I’ll also be releasing the rest of the series in 2017. That’s right, I’m finally going to complete the series.
Why did it take me so long?
Because I couldn’t make up my mind about how I wanted to do the series. First I had planned on doing the entire series told through Jane’s POV, because she was so much fun to write. But then I worried I’d get bored. That happens to me … a lot. And I certainly didn’t want to be working on something that wasn’t fun for me to write. So then I thought I’d do it like my M-Day series, and have each book told through a different person’s POV. That ran me into a little cover problem. How was I going to find non-crappy (Yes, that’s a word now.) representations of some of the aliens I put in the book? I thought maybe doing the whole sexy couple thing on the cover might work. Buuuut … I ended up changing my mind again. And again. Then the book just sat there seeping in uncertainty, driving me insane.
Finally, a few months ago I came to a decision. I was going to get another new cover for Starblind, re-edit that bad boy, and finish the damn series!!! Each book will focus on a different couple, and will be narrated from a different character’s POV.
Fast forward to now, Starblind has a new cover ready to go:
It’s been re-edited, and is waiting to be formatted. It will go live as soon as it’s finished. I’m excited about this series all over again!
Speaking of new covers … My Death Trilogy has some revamped covers on the way as well.
Fun fact: As an author, if you re-read anything that you wrote a long time ago , you are going to want to hurl yourself off of the closest building.
Seriously, I wanted to delete these books and pretend like they never existed. But instead, I polished them up a bit, accepted that my writing has evolved over the past five years, and once they’re re-published, I will pretend like they don’t exist, like all the rest of my old books.
That’s about it for now folks. Until next time …
The ebook edition will be on sale for only $2.99 until July 26th, when it will go up to its regular price.
You can find it in ebook here:
And in print here:
( Somniare will be available in print in all the usual places like B&N, Book-A-Million, etc … but will take a few days to be listed at those retailers. )
And don’t forget, ebook review copies can still be requested >HERE<.
That’s it for now. Until next time …
Character illustration cards!!!!
I just love them so much! They’re so pretty … and shiny … and EEEP! Yep, I love them!
So why am I showing off these bad boys?
Well … remember my post from the other day when I said I was going to be offering some special goodies for anyone who pre-orders Somniare?
These are the goodies!
Apparently a lot of authors have been offering incentives for those dedicated enough to pre-order books from them. It’s a thank you from them to their readers. And I want to thank my readers too! I love my readers! My readers are the best!!!
I know, I know … every author thinks their readers are the best, kind of like with kids, or pets. But I seriously think mine are! I love all you guys!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
So here’s the deal:
I have 50 sets of these cards! The giveaway is open internationally, and all you have to do is send me the following:
~Proof of pre-order (example: screenshot of receipt)

That’s it, and boom, a set of these cards will show up in your mail.
That’s it for now. Until next time …
I just wanted to announce a few things about some upcoming giveaways n’ stuff. 😉
