I don’t necessarily expect all of my feedback or reviews to be positive. I know that what I’m writing may not appeal to everyone, but it’s always good for my morale to get the kind of verbal feedback I’ve gotten from several of my readers in the past couple of weeks. Thank you all so much for that. Please continue to, or consider beginning to, share my books with your friends, family and acquaintances. I also appreciate any and all reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, Shelfari, Barnes & Noble, etc. Even if you don’t wish to write a formal review, just giving a star rating is appreciated.
I’m looking forward to a relaxing spring break. For me, relaxing means more than getting some rest and being away from my day job for a while. It also means time to WRITE! Writing while I’m working is a lot like having a second job except the writing has to take the back seat to pretty much everything else. When I have time off, I get to write to my heart’s content. I hope to get a good bit more of book 6 written as well as maybe some editing of book 4 done this week. I know some of you are already anxious for book 4, but I fear I have a good bit of editing to do there and I learned not to make any promises about release dates with book 3. I trust that your patience will be rewarded with a better book, even though it may take me some time to get it out.
While it is true the first 3 books do stand alone, I see more to Alex’s journey, thus the upcoming novels book 4, 5 & 6. I also have a vision for the last scene of book 7, so there will be at least that many. Hopefully this won’t be a spoiler, but I can give you a hint about what I’m writing now. Alex learns that sometimes the past has great bearing on the present and the future and readers will see a little more of the past as we step back in time. More details of Kronis before he came in contact with Arianna the first time will be revealed.
First the bad news. We signed up book 3 for ‘expanded distribution’. This means that it can be bought in print through other retailers besides Amazon (Barnes & Noble, etc). The problem was, I had tried to keep the price on book 3 as low as I could and I had set it so low that they wouldn’t accept it for expanded distribution (everybody in the chain wants to get paid). Unfortunately, this means I had to raise the price to $26.95. It was almost not worth it since I would only make 31 cents per copy sold through expanded channels even at that price, but I wanted to make my books available as widely as possible. At this point, I’m more interested in the exposure than the profits.
Now for the good news. The good news is, that since I have a little more leeway with my e-store pricing, I have changed the coupon code available for that to 25% off. This will help bring the final price down a little more if you purchase through the e-store here. The other GOOD news is that there are no PRINTING costs associated with e-books, so I don’t have to raise those prices! If you are an ebook reader, the price increase on book 3 won’t apply to you.
Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement. I do hope you are enjoying the world of the Nephilim.
If you are a Nook reader, you can now get Immortal Reborn – Choices of the Heart from the Nook store. I’m excited that all 3 of my books are now available to you. Please enjoy and let me know what you think!
Book 1 is now available directly from the Nook store. I expect Book 2 to follow within a couple of days.

My dear husband Will spends a lot of time looking for ways to get the word out about my books. He found a young lady who was starting up a new book review blog and we submitted Book 1 to her for review. I am very thankful for any and all reviews that you, the readers, have posted for me on various sites. This one will hopefully go up on some of those sites when she has time to post it, but for now you can see it at her blog.

If you’ve read Book 1 and/or Book 2 and feel comfortable posting a review on any of the followng sites, I would greatly appreciate it:
Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, Shelfari, Smashwords, etc. It doesn’t have to be as in-depth as the one on ChaiTime’s blog, even just a star rating is appreciated.
Don’t forget to come out to the Thomson-McDuffie County Public Library for my first meet & greet and book signing on Thursday, Feb 21st from 4:00PM until 5:30PM. Bring your books and I’ll be glad to sign them for you! Even if you’ve only bought the e-book version, you are certainly more than welcome to join us. Tell your friends. See you there!
Thanks to my dear hubby Will, I now have Book 2 available on SmashWords. I’m still working feverishly to get Book 3 out and hope to have good news VERY soon. Please hang in there!

If you are not a Kindle owner, but own another e-reader (Nook, Kobo, Sony, etc.) …you are in luck. Book 1 is now available on SmashWords. This is the first step in having it available in the native store for most other electronic formats. If you have a SmashWords account, or wish to set one up, you can be among the first to get IMMORTAL REBORN – ARIANNA’S CHOICE in a format that works with your e-reader. If you’d prefer to wait a short while longer, you will SOON be able to get it from the e-store of your choice. I’m waiting to see how the whole process works with Book 1, but Book 2 will soon follow and I hope to have Book 3 up for these other e-readers almost as soon as it is released for Kindle.
