A Quickie Update

I'm sorry about the radio silence on the blog. I've been pretty busy the last month with prepping for appearances and trying to get two writing projects published for your reading pleasure. Even though I feel like I'm constantly working, I'm a little behind on several projects, including my newsletter. I hope to have the next newsletter out by the end of this month. *fingers crossed*

If you haven't signed up for the newsletter, please make sure you do! I offer freebies, excerpts, and all sorts of fun stuff.

Upcoming Releases

The audio book for Pretty When They Collide will be released in June. I don't have an exact date, but I will let you know when it goes live. I really loved listening to the audio version of the story of Aimee and Cass. Kristen Allison nailed it perfectly. I really loved what she did with the characters' voices and with the narration.

As The World Dies Untold Tales Vol 3 comes out in June, too. The final cover art is being worked on by Philip Rogers. Not only does the cover have a really cool rendering of Rune (my friend George Russell, who Rune was based on, was the reference model!), but he's doing an awesome back cover rendition of my character Emma. I can't wait to share Emma with you! She's one of my favorite As The World Dies characters. She inhabited the original online serial's epilogue, but I ditched it later because it felt forced. Emma was the only thing that felt right about it.

The early reviews are coming in from the bloggers. Check out Giselle of Xpresso Reads thought here, and Kristen's review at Blood, Sweat and Books here.

As The World Dies Untold Tales Volume 3 is now available EXCLUSIVELY in most ebook formats at my online bookstore for $2.99. Directions on how to upload to your reading device are included. The ebook and paperback will not be released to online retailers and bookstores until June. This is an EARLY release for the fans.

Release Day Online Party Details

The complete first season of In Darkness We Must Abide is officially released tomorrow, May 24 in both paperback and ebook. Xpresso Tours is hosting a blog tour complete with giveaways, guest posts, interviews, reviews, etc.

On Facebook, I'm hosting an online event that will include giveaways of paperbacks, bookmarks, ebooks, and some of my other vampire novels. I will also be doing two Q & A's via webcam/chat room.

On Friday, 5/24, I'll be doing two video Q & A's via the TinyChat application on Facebook. You'll just have to download the app and follow the link when I post it on the event page. You'll be directed straight into the chat room.

The first chat is scheduled with Europe in mind. 1 PM Central Time will place this chat in the early evening. You'll have to check a time zone converter for the exact time in your country. This also can work for people who work in the evenings in North America.

The second one will be at 8 PM Central Time.

Basically, I'll be on live webcam and you guys and gals get to ask me questions about IN DARKNESS WE MUST ABIDE or anything else you'd like to discuss about my writing career, my books, or the horror genre.

Make sure you RVSP here.

I have some more news brewing, but nothing set in stone just yet. I'll keep you updated on future writing projects and releases.
