Hello, friends and fellow readers! It’s been a while since I last posted, so I thought I would update everyone on The Children of Angels Book 6: The Choice to Survive. Yes, the wait is almost over!
Will and I have been working feverishly over the last couple of weeks to put the finishing touches on the novel in time for its pre-sale deadline. We finished last night with a couple of days to spare! I’m so excited to be able to bring this new part of the adventure of to you. I appreciate, more than I can say, everyone who’s already pre-ordered the book and sent word that they’re eager for the new release in the series.
Though I don’t like to give spoilers or divulge too much about Alex’s tale before it’s in the hands of readers, I will say that there are many new characters in this novel that I’m thrilled to share with you all. Some who’ll rally when they’re called upon to act and others who will rail against it all. So much happens in this particular story, and I look forward to hearing from fans and getting your feedback. Thank you all once again, for continuing the journey with me!
I’m excited to announce that Immortal Reborn: Arianna’s Choice, Book 1 of my Children of Angels series has been chosen as the Book of the Day . org: Best In Category for Fantasy. I’m not sure who nominated it, but I am so happy that you liked it enough to do so. See details and all the nominees here: http://bookoftheday.org/2015-summer-book-awards/ and the award page here: http://bookoftheday.org/sba15-1/
If you haven’t read the book yet, the BOOKS page above will take you to links from which you may download this book for free in many different formats for most e-readers, etc. If you have read the book (or the whole series), I appreciate your word-of-mouth recommendations to family and friends. As an indie author, this is my best way to reach new readers. Thank you all so much for your continued support.
I have added two new features to the website that I hope fans of the Children of Angels series will appreciate and enjoy.
The first is a simple chart displaying the Children of the Light and each of their angelic fathers which comprise the Council of Light. This is first mentioned in book 6 (coming soon!) but it will help you to get a better handle on who’s who concerning many of the key characters. Find it here: Council of Light
The second is a listing of many of the songs that inspired me as I wrote certain scenes in the series from books 1 through 5. I hope you will enjoy seeing and maybe hearing some of these songs. Find it here: Song List
Today I have to give huge thanks to my sweet hubby, Will, and to the talented cover artist Perry Elisabeth for helping to make the presale of The Choice To Survive, the 6th book in The Children of Angels series a reality. Many of you have let me know that you are eagerly awaiting the next installment in Alex’s journey and I’m happy to say that it is now available for preorder in ALL ebook stores. The official release date is September 1, 2015.
The cover of this novel was exciting for me for several reasons. A new dimension in danger is introduced in this novel as large-scale battles are fought around the globe. As Alex and her brethren meet the growing threat from the dark ones, the reader will see Alex come into her own. She will learn more about her aura and how to adapt her power to the ever-changing threat. I loved that Perry was able to incorporate the Colosseum and weave a human DNA strand into the immortal light surrounding the arena. As you read the story you will understand the importance of these elements and I’m happy that she was able to make my vision a reality for you, the reader.
As always, many thanks to everyone for your enthusiastic support and excitement about my stories and characters. I wish I could bring them to you more quickly but it does take time to write, edit, format, design the cover and make each the best book it can be for you.
For those who have not yet seen it, I present to you the final new cover for my already published titles in the Children of Angels series. I am so very grateful to Perry Elisabeth for helping me to bring these exciting new covers to life. The next installment in the series is not too far away. I’m hoping to have it ready for you by late summer or early fall. Perry will also be designing that cover and I hope to be able to share it with you soon.
The delightful Perry Elisabeth continues to help me with the redesign of my covers. Today we have changed the cover of Immortal Reborn: Choices of the Heart. I am particularly excited about this cover because I actually took the photo of Urr Parish Church near Dalbeattie, Scotland this past summer. If you’ve already read the book you know the significance of this church. It was so surreal to approach the church from the rear in exactly the way I had written about Alex doing so. Being able to visit places that I had only seen or read about online was a wonderful experience.
We begin the process of redesigning the cover of book 4 this week. Watch for details coming soon.
