Mageri Series in Audio

Have you had the chance to discover the Mageri series in audio? Well now you can!

The CDs and audio downloads are available for purchase and pre-order. Mageri fans are buzzing with excitement as their favorite characters are brought to life through narration from Nicole Poole. Even those who have never experienced audiobooks are loving the opportunity to experience this series in a new way.

Laugh at Simon's witty lines, Christian's dark humor, and Silver's sarcasm. Swoon over Sunny and Knox, and fall in love with Logan all over again. So many readers have asked if the series will become a movie or TV series, and while that would be amazing (I won't lie), listening to a book in audio is a perfect substitute. This way you can sit back, close your eyes, and really enjoy the story while still getting to imagine the character's faces the way you want. :)

Anyone who is listening to them now, feel free to tell everyone why these rock out loud! Don't think I haven't seen all the Facebook chatter. <3

Titles and release dates below. Direct links to my publisher, Tantor Media. Sample audio also available:

Closer in Paperback

After two years in e-book format, Closer is finally available in paperback. Initially I opted out of paperbacks because I wasn't sure if there was an audience for novellas in print. I've decided that it wouldn't be fair to readers who only buy in paperback, or for fans who want to own all the print versions of my titles (I love you guys).

So I spent some time preparing the book, and I also had to carve out time to do the cover. I have to say I'm really in love with how it turned out. It's the same size as my other books, and I had some fun with chapter header designs.

Closer is a stand-alone novella that focuses on two Sensors who are connected by fate. This is an unconventional love story that takes place in an unusual location, therefore it doesn't rely heavily on action sequences or other outside drama to carry the story. It follows Kane, who is Sunny's brother. So we get to know a little about the man that is briefly mentioned in the Mageri series. I'd highly recommend reading this before finishing the Mageri series, and it can be read anywhere in the Mageri timeline, but I think it'll make that series conclusion more eyebrow raising.

Bundle Makeover

The Mageri Series Boxed Set (1-3) has undergone a makeover. While the original image with  "almost kissing" was great, the image appears at the end of Twist, and I really wanted something that upon first glance, looked like a Mageri series book. I like many readers enjoy the first cover, however that has to do with it being a little sentimental. The new cover is designed to snag the attention of new readers.

Those who have the original bundle set will not lose their image.The price is still discounted, so anyone who hasn't yet made the plunge into the Mageri series will find there is a discount in purchasing books 1-3 in a bundle vs individually. It just depends on if you prefer to have them grouped or individually titled on your e-reader.

7/07 - IMPULSE audiobook
7/29 - FIVE WEEKS book release
7/29 - GRAVITY audiobook
8/12 - SHINE audiobook
August (tentative) - STERLING German edition

Audio pre-purchase available at retail sites.


If you've been glancing at the project tracker on the right side of my webpage, you'll see I've been busy writing my first draft of Two Minutes (Seven Series). I'm usually working on a couple of things at once, but the process of writing and publishing is not quick. While the first draft might be completed in July, it takes months and months of rewrites, edits, beta reads, editor, proofreads, etc. to get the book ready for publication. I don't believe in rushing a story, and I'll never just kick it out the door if I'm not completely satisfied. Typically I'll write the first draft and set it aside for a little while so I can go back in with a clear head.

I'm also working on a few things I can't discuss right now.

My betas throughout the Seven Series have been amazingly supportive and constructive with feedback, and I think you're really going to love this series. Each seems to wind up having a favorite character or book, although sometimes that might be each new book they That's always a good sign. It's been a fun and challenging series to write.

I plan on having a Sterling sale next month, so look for that.

Closer has been revised. I'm also going to schedule working on the cover, but my priority list is way too long since I need to close out the first draft and will have edits coming back to me very soon. So I don't have a date set on when that will happen (hopefully this summer), but I'm excited to finally be able to put Kane on my shelf. :)

Five Weeks coming in five more weeks!

It's almost here! Just five more weeks left until FIVE WEEKS (Seven Series #3) is out!


A blog tour is also in the works, so if you are a blogger who would like to participate, please let me know! I will also be posting a link to the sign-up form once that's available.

If you haven't started the Seven Series, this is a paranormal romance that has even drawn in readers who don't normally read paranormal books! There's a nice blend of "real life" with a group of brothers who just happen to be Shifters. Alphas, bikers, rock stars; there's a little of everything! These are all full-length novels (over 100,000 words), HEA, no cliffhangers. While they could be read as stand-alone, this is a connected series and reading them that way may not make as much sense since all the stories interconnect.


Currently available for Pre-Order on iTunes: HERE

Whether you are a blogger or a reader, please help spread the word on release day!
How can you support the series? Post a review on Amazon as soon as you're done reading!

In case you missed the excerpt, it's included on the Cover Reveal post HERE


Twist is now available on AUDIO. Check out Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Audible, and Tantor.
The rest of the series will be coming out this summer. Check out the DANNIKA DARK BOOKS link on my website menu for a release date listing.

I have also added a status bar to the right side of my website where you can track my progress with different projects for the activity listed directly below. The name of the project is within the tracker counter, and it's based on current word count/target (or completed) word count. Just a fun visual way for you to see what I'm up to.

I've been working hard, each day, long and incredibly crazy hours to get these projects moving. There's so much to be done aside from the writing part. So if you're a person who likes to work a few hours a day, this is not the job for you! lol

And SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER. I don't spam. The only time you'll receive newsletters close together is during a book release, as I always send out a second wave in case the first one ended up in anyone's spam folder. Just remember when signing up to add the email you get from me to your address book/contact list! Check your spam folder, and if I ever end up there, move my email out before you delete it so it never goes there again. I have no control over what your mail server might do, but just giving you a heads-up! :-)
