With the release of the third book in the series, I’ve put Evergreen #1 on sale for .99 over the next few days!
Seventeen-year-old Harper Cody hesitates for a second, and her parents die. With nothing but the clothes on her back and Dad’s shotgun, she’s the only thing standing between her little sister and the dangers of a post-nuclear Colorado.
I’m thrilled to announce the kindle release of Evergreen Book 3 – The Lucky Ones!
Eight months ago, the skies burned.
Harper Cody’s life in the town of Evergreen is far from the comfortable suburban existence she enjoyed growing up. The urge to survive hardens all, even the sweetest girl in her class. Safety is difficult to find, but she makes her own with Dad’s shotgun.
The approach of her eighteenth birthday rips open the emotional scab she’d built over her most painful memories. She mourns the ashes of a future that can no longer be, believing the world no longer has any place for happiness. Despite her sorrow, she remains determined to protect her little sister and two adopted siblings.
Nuclear autumn threatens the crops, lake fish carry the threat of radiation, and the town’s canned goods are nearly gone. Food is scarce, but the people of Evergreen just might make it if luck is with them. Unfortunately, they aren’t the only ones willing to kill for survival, and a large, verdant farm makes for a tempting target.
School may be a thing of the past for Harper, but she’s learning that the hardest part of nuclear war is surviving it.
Release Party! – Please join me on Facebook tomorrow for an online release party. (If you’re not sure how that works, it’s entirely in the comments/discussion page of the event.) We’ll have games, contests, and giveaways 🙂
The Eldritch Heart ebook is on sale for .99 until May 4th!
(A young adult LGBT Fantasy novel)
For twenty years, a war rages between the kingdoms of Lucernia and Evermoor, longer than Princess Oona has been alive. She is stuck living as a veritable prisoner in the castle, fearful of assassins who seek to kill her before the Foretelling comes to pass.
A bigger worry weighs heavy on her heart than finding a way to end a bitter war: the love she feels for her servant girl, Kitlyn.
In a kingdom devoted to Lucen, the god of purity, such an admission could be worse than death–but so is keeping it secret.
Greetings! I have a second freebie going on – The Cursed Codex (Upper MG / younger YA LitRPG) is also free on Kindle until 4/23/19.
Fantasy roleplayers often get deep into their games, but thirteen-year-old Keith Croft is about to take it to a new level.
He’s been invisible for seven years, smart but not working hard, athletic enough, but too lazy to excel. His parents are sorta cool, but only two weeks into his eighth-grade year, his friends are all busy with sports or projects and can’t hang out. On the way home one day, he stops at a neighbor’s yard sale and discovers a book for Crypts & Creepers that the lonely old woman says belonged to her granddaughter who disappeared without a trace.
Days after he convinces his friends to try this bizarre game that doesn’t require electronics, strange noises in his closet wake him. His increasing inability to focus on anything other than a girl who vanished before he was born―and his obsession with her NPC ranger―drives him to dig deeper into the past, searching for what really happened to her.
By the time Keith realizes the Gamemaster’s Codex holds something darker than rules within its pages, the curse that claimed the soul of a girl in 1987 has its claws in his group as well.
Keith vows his friends will escape―even if he can’t.
Prophet of the Badlands is free on Kindle from Apr 20 – Apr 24!
For most twelve-year-olds, being kidnapped is terrifying. For Althea, it’s only Tuesday.
Psionic healing powers are precious anywhere, but out in the Badlands… settlers and raiders alike kill to own her. With no home or even any idea what normal feels like, Althea is content to let them take her as long as she can still help those who need her gifts. When her bleak life takes an unexpected turn and she gets a taste of having a real home, she must search deep within for the courage to protect herself and those she has come to love as a family.
Hello, All! – I’ve been eager to release this book for a while now. Alas, with the upheaval of parting ways with my former publisher and redoing the covers it caused a bit of a delay.
Ricky Gunawan again worked his illustrative magic to create the cover, so I am finally able to release the fifth in the series!
Weeping Spirit somewhat returns to the tone of the first book, a little darker and creepier than the volumes before it.
Ten-year-old Emma has battled dark creatures and protected her home from errant magic, but an unexpected letter brings her scariest trial yet―attending a wedding in Calebrin.
Da’s younger sister has invited them for her ceremony, but Emma dreads the huge city, its strange people, uncomfortable fancy clothes, and worst of all: shoes. Her anxiety builds when Nan refuses to go, filling her head with worries about what could be wrong with her father’s side of the family.
On Emma’s first night in Calebrin, spectral crying wakes her. She creeps out of bed to discover a forlorn spirit wandering the halls, who seems to be trying to warn Emma of danger. Alas, Da’s prim and proper mother has a low opinion of druids, and an even lower opinion of Mama. His younger brother takes particular delight in tormenting Emma, and her efforts to assist the spirit only annoy him more.
She suspects something far darker than an arrogant uncle lurks in the giant manor house where her father grew up. No longer afraid, Emma tries to help the ghost—before she becomes one herself.
