I’m up too late because I can’t sleep from excitement. The second book in the Awakened series is out now as an ebook. (Paperback will likely be up in about a week.) The second book in the Awakened series, Archon’s Queen, follows Anna Morgan (who you may remember from near the end of Prophet of the Badlands as Pixie) five years in the past from the events of Prophet. This is the story of how she went from a barely-alive denizen of the worst part of 2418 London to the right hand of the self-proclaimed master of the Awakened.

I also hope to see you online today (8/10) on Facebook for the release party where we’ve got some lovely prizes made by Rhonda from Justplummy Swagit, as well as books (both signed and e-book) up for grabs.
6pm – 8pm EST online. Chat / comment / post on Facebook.
After a long wait, Awakened #1 – The Prophet of the Badlands is out!
I am excited to announce that the first book in the Awakened series, Prophet of the Badlands is now available on Amazon. Here: http://amzn.com/B00WR8J6JE
For most twelve year olds, being kidnapped is terrifying. For Althea, it’s just Tuesday.
Her power to heal the wounded and cleanse the sick makes her a hunted commodity in the Badlands, a place devoid of technology where the strong write the law in blood. For as long as she can remember, they always come, they always take her, and she lets them. Passed around in an endless series of abductions, she obeys without question―mending those who killed to own her.
After three whole months in the same village, the affection of a young warrior makes her feel almost like a member of the tribe rather than a captive. Her brief joy shatters when raiders seize her yet again; for the first time in six years, being stolen hurts.
A reluctant escape sends her wandering, and she realizes her gift is a prize that causes as much death as it prevents. Her attempt to return to the tribe leaves her lost and alone, hounded at every turn. When a family who sees her not as the Prophet―but as a little girl―takes her in, she finds the courage to use her power to protect those she loves.
A strange man from a world beyond her imagining tests her newfound resolve, seeking to use her power to further his own agenda. Tired of being property, her freedom boils down to one question:
Can Althea balance the sanctity with which she holds all life against the miserable truth that some people deserve to die?

Part Three of the Division Zero series, Thrall, is now live on Amazon 🙂
Agent Kirsten Wren could not be happier―all she had to do was send a few demons back to the Abyss.
Her life is as calm and normal as it has ever been. Corporate assassins have not tried to kill her for an entire week, her effort to adopt Evan appears to be going well, and a billionaire is smitten with her.
Alas, fitting in with Konstantin’s high-society crowd proves more awkward than she ever imagined and dredges up a memory best left forgotten. Two years spent living on the street have left her with nothing but disdain for the rich; contempt that sickens her with anxiety over a life with her new beau.
Bodies start turning up with strange withered faces and eerie onyx eyes, filling her with worry that a dark spirit slipped through her fingers despite lack of proof. With each powerful person making bizarre decisions that imperil the stability of the entire nation, her suspicion that something is wrong grows. When the government gives her a week to intercede before they assassinate one of their own diplomats, she knows a dark force is behind it.
Who or whatever summoned Charazu is still out there, and seems to know who she is―and who she loves.
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since Division Zero came out, and now the third book in the series, Thrall, is due for release at the end of March. We’re having a Facebook release party (hosted by the wonderful Leslie Whitaker) on March 31 from 7-9pm Eastern time. There’ll be games/contests and prizes-though I am still working out the exact details that.
Please join me on Facebook to help kick off the release of book 3 in the Division Zero series.
