Your Saturday Update

Look what's coming in less than two weeks. Shine's publication date is December 20th, so be sure to grab your copy before you head off for Christmas vacation. I will post the links here, there, and everywhere. See countdown on my blog (left menu)

WANT ME TO EMAIL YOU? Sign up for my newsletter HERE.

Logan & Justus are asking that readers post their reviews on Amazon or Barnes & Noble to show all your love and support. Kind of hard to say no to those big strong guys with marshmallow hearts.

I have also updated my Glossary page to add AUDIO. I've been asked how to pronounce certain words or names, so if I receive an inquiry, I'm going to put it up on this page. Check it out! See if you've been saying Mageri correctly. :-)

It's looking like there will be a slight delay with paperbacks, but hang tight. The holidays are coming up and that's a tight crunch for me to run enough proofs to be happy. It'll be worth it. This is honestly one of my favorite covers of the series.


I'm currently working on two projects. I'm doing final pre-editor edits on "Six Months" (Yay for the Seven fans) and also writing a new book. No publication date is set for Six Months, but sign up for that newsletter (above) and you'll be the first to know when it's announced.

I'm feeling a bit cooped up during this ice storm.That's not a good thing. Just look what happened to Jack Torrence.

I probably shouldn't poll readers here because more people probably visit my Facebook page, but do you prefer matte or glossy paperbacks? (for paperback readers only) I now have the option to go matte and I'm so thinking about switching my new series. Feel free to chime in. I'll probably run a proof to see how they look, but I was curious if readers cared. Could just be one of those things considered author porn. Trim size, glossy vs matte, cream vs white.... yes!



But no matter what I give you, I'll make sure it's the best.

  1. Honestly, before I went 99% ebooks, I actually preferred matte paperbacks. Still do. Why? Not sure. Maybe it's the feel of them in my hand? Who knows, but that's my answer. :)

    1. I love the feel of matte as well, although I have a few glossies that look really nice, but it mostly has to do with the embossing or other effects.

  2. I read books on a Kindle so I don't have a preference for paperbacks. I just wanted to say that I found your books Seven and the Mageri series and read them all last week - I loved them! And am now a serious fan! I have a list of authors on Amazon that I get email notices of new releases and just added you to the list. You're a great author! Can't wait for the new Mageri book Shine to come out in a couple of weeks!

    1. Thanks so much, Carrie. I'm glad you're enjoying the series! You can also sign up for my mailing list (link is beneath the header). I'm not sure if you subscribed directly through Amazon but those aren't reliable as a few of my readers said they never received notification. Shine will be here next Friday :-)

  4. When can we pre-order Shine from Amazon?? I'm like "Dyin" here in antisipation for the ebook to come out!! I LOVE this series and honestly hope that you do some shorts dealing with Christian, Simon, Adam, Nicos & Justice too as well as Logan's brother's & even dear sweet Finn. I'd love to read happy that they each find their happy ending ya' know? I was heartbroken that you chose to end Knox's life; I think he'd have made a fantastic Breed honestly...maybe with his size and strength he'd have been perfect as a Bear (Kodiac even) shifter. What with that strength of his and the Kodiac's being the largest & strongest next to the Grizzly. The way you wrote Nicos reactions to learning that Sunny was carrying Knox's Twins almost makes it seem like just maybe something will happen between him & her. Not a bad combination honestly & would be even cool if he made her into a Mage after she has the babies. I kinda think she would make a good mage/mate *shrug*. Anyway, as I said would be really cool if you could do that. I just get the feeling those char's still have a lot to tell. Both about their lives (past like Simon & what his creator did to him and the significance of that tattoo mark he's so sensitive about) and about the Mageri & the rest of the Breed. OOh & even Remi the mysterious Gemini; I'd love to learn more about him. Heck I'm Hoping that Justice & Page Bond ultimately because despite her fears she loves him as much as he loves her and the fates put them together for a reason. I'm also hoping we finally see the demise of Nero and learn more about his experiments with creating hybrids as well as who Silver's biological father is! OOH & I'd love more about the sexy Overlord as you only just hinted that we'll be seeing more of him which I assume means he will have more of a voice in Shine. Makes me wonder what his possible relationship with Silver may be...........could he have been her father & not be aware that his sperm was stolen & used maybe?? *laugh* sorry but yeah can you tell I really LOVE this series & just see so many more stories that can come from it too! *hugs*

    1. Risa,

      Pre-order is only available to an exclusive selection of indies (me not being one of them), but be sure to sign up for my newsletter and I'll send that out with all the links (unless you plan to stop by this website or my Facebook page on the 19th and 20th to check for updates). I hope the book meets your expectations and is a satisfying conclusion to the series :-)

    2. Just signed up for email updates *laugh* & I'm sure it will though like I said would love to see more of the char's in maybe short stories like Closer; Kane's story (though wish it had been longer *smile* but isn't that always our wishes??? That the short stories were longer?) Thanks for the reply & can't wait for Shine! (I'll be like my daughter who's currently doin' a countdown to how many days till her boyfriend who's currently in AIT in the Army will be here for christmas break. They've been dating sinc Oct of last year which was his Sr year & her Jr year of high school. Looks like he's the "ONE" for her & she's the "One" for him with how their conversations about thir future keeps going. As long as they don't jump into things to soon, I'd have to say I'd be happy to call him son in the future. He's kinda a jumble of your char's; Justice, Logan,Simon & Adam with a bit of Christian's attitude mixed in for added spice & flavor *laugh* very protective & posessive but in a good way & has helped her grow & stand up for herself where dealing with certain family members was concerned. Something I tried helping her with but guess I just didn't have the right words unlike him. *smile*

      I'll fan you on Facebook if thats ok too so I won't miss anything important re: The Mageri series too. After I finish this series I'll check out the Seven series!!
