New Release | The Last Family Road Trip

Hi All!

I’m thrilled to announce the release of the fourth book in the Vampire Innocent series!

The Last Family Road Trip is now live on #kindle. Paperback is on the way (takes a little longer to churn through the labyrinthine workings of Amazon’s servers.

Book 1 – A Nighttime of Forever

Book 2 – A Beginner’s Guide to Fangs

Book 3 – The Artist of Ruin


The universe holds various immutable constants: death, gravity, taxes… and the Wright family road trip.

After a couple months as a vampire, Sarah’s mostly adjusted to her new unlife. Despite being eighteen and immortal, she embraces staying at home. Her almost demise makes her quite aware that her family won’t be around forever. She only needs to keep her supernatural and normal lives separate.

Yeah… that’ll happen.

Every summer, Dad plans a vacation-by-car somewhere across the country. Lameness has increased each year, but Sarah blames that on growing older. She thought dying might get her out of going, but her father’s not about to let something that trivial put an end to the tradition. After renting an RV and tinting the back windows, he’s confident he can bring the whole family along.

Of course, as a vampire, Sarah can’t seem to go anywhere without attracting the weird.

… and the deadly.

New Release | Ascendant Unrest

Greetings!

I’m thrilled to announce the release of Ascendant Unrest – the second book in the Faded Skies series. Out now on #kindle. (I think the publisher is releasing it wide across several outlets but I’m not 100% sure). Though this series has a nine-year-old main character, it’s not intended for young readers.

The series is linear, so be sure to read Heir Ascendant first!


Two weeks after Maya tried to save the world, little has changed. Little, except for a nine-year-old’s building fear that her ex-mother’s revenge waits around every corner.

When her face appeared on every still-working video monitor along the Eastern Seaboard, streaming her plea and her evidence all over the planet, she thought they’d won. Alas, her fairy tale dream died. The Authority didn’t become noble overnight. Her ex-mother didn’t face punishment for her crimes. The lack of any retribution, or even any effort on the part of the Brigade to hide her, only fans the flames of her worry.

To make matters worse, her best friend Sarah is hiding a painful secret.

Maya’s fears come to fruition in the middle of the night. In a hail of gunfire, she and Sarah flee into the dangerous streets of the Habitation District, rife with dosers, street gangs, corrupt Authority officers, chased by an unknown enemy worse than Ascendant.

They don’t want to kidnap her―they want her dead.

 

Cover Reveal | Out of Sight

Greetings!

I’m super thrilled to be able to reveal the cover for my upcoming young-adult science fiction novel, Out of Sight!

The wonderful illustration is from Jackson Tjota, and Alexandria Thompson did the layout work.

The book will be releasing fairly soon. More or less as soon as the interior artwork is finalized.

New Release | The Artist of Ruin

Greetings all! I’m thrilled to announce the ebook release of The Artist of Ruin, the third book in the Vampire Innocent series. (Vampiric humor with a little drama.)


Sarah Wright knows she’s in for a rough week when a ghost asking for help is the least frightening thing she has to deal with.

A month after waking up as a vampire, unlife is feeling pretty sweet. Her mood swings are easing off, she’s got a decent boyfriend, and best of all, the parents let her slide on being lazy. They understand it’s a little awkward to keep a job when daylight can kill her.

Oh, and the whole magical powers thing is pretty cool, too.

After two weeks of quiet, her new normal blooms into a chaotic mess. Ashley’s awful luck with romance hits dangerously close to home. A simple favor for Aurélie ends with a possessed antique doll loose in the house, and worse, one random act of kindness gives Sarah something she’s never had before—a nemesis who wants to do more than kill her.

She wants to utterly ruin her.


Also, book one (A Nighttime of Forever) is going on sale. Grab it on #kindle for .99 over the next few days!

New Release | Citadel: The Concordant Sequence

Out Now!

Citadel: The Concordant Sequence – a post-apocalyptic young-adult novel

Eleven year old Kiera Quinn is sure she’s having a nightmare. She doesn’t believe a nap that started safe in her suburban bedroom ends in an empty wasteland. She doesn’t believe everyone she’s ever known may have never existed―and she definitely doesn’t believe an old man who tells her she will resurrect the world.

After he finds her crawling from a vent, the odd shaman clad in junk and old computer parts claims she is ‘the child born of the earth,’ humanity’s only chance to survive. As crazy as he sounds, being alone in a vast desert frightens her more than a kindly stranger. Desperate and scared, Kiera humors him, hoping her bad dream ends soon.

Fate has a funny habit of getting in the way of destiny. When an opportunity for a safe home presents itself, Kiera jumps at the chance. New parents and a new town―even a super-primitive tribal village―feel like the best place for a child to be, not off saving the world at the ramblings of a nutty old man. Adjusting to life without video games isn’t easy, but her new mom and dad give her what her old ones couldn’t: time and attention.

Alas, Kiera’s discovery of a secret within ancient ruins causes the ruler of the distant Citadel to regard her as a threat in need of disposal. Her only chance to keep her new family is to believe a crazy old man wasn’t so crazy―and that saving them won’t destroy the whole planet.
