I’m so excited to have you be a part of my release day for HUNTED, Book 3 of the Donovan Circus Series! Sometimes it feels like I just released the first book, GIFTED, a few days ago; other times, it feels like more years than it’s actually been! :) Thank you to the amazing bloggers, authors, and readers who have helped make this such an awesome release day. Also a special thanks to my cover designer, Kate at Dwell Design & Press for her amazing cover work! I hope you all find the third adventure as exciting as the first two – and perhaps much darker, as there are many underlying things bubbling to the surface, secrets coming unveiled, and a death that will shake the troupe in a terrible way. HUNTEDCoverSm

Back Cover Synopsis: Lucy Sullivan finally belongs with the gifted Donovan Circus. Members are finding their rhythm, even the new folks from the Grayson Circus who joined after the last attack. Lucy feels like a trusted leader who can win the gifted battles and prevent humans from discovering their existence.

When tragedy strikes camp, a distraught Sheffield sends Lucy and her gifted team to hunt down the enemy – Alex, a Chameleon with a wicked ability for war. He’s out for blood and won’t stop until Lucy and her friends are dead.

This time, it won’t be Lucy’s gift that is tested – it will be her morality. To save her circus, the price will be greater than she ever expected. This time, she will lose someone she loves. And it will change everything.

Milestone Birthdays: Getting Your Ish Together

Posted on Updated on

 

My 30th birthday dessert from my friends at Local Roots.

 A week ago, I turned 30. I wasn’t expecting a lot of hoopla, and in the end it was a perfect birthday (shopping with mom, drinks with friends, relaxing on the couch with JLo and Fisher). However, the milestone got me thinking about things, both in what I’ve achieved so far and what I’d like to pursue in the near future. I also think that the turn of a season – especially spring, where everything feels fresh and new again – added to the process. 

I’m excited about the prospects of the coming year. I’m proud of the goals I’ve managed to accomplish. I feel that with 30, it’s time to get even more serious than I already am about my future. The milestone essentially tricks my brain into thinking I have a fresh start – an entirely new year ahead of me to try new things, whether I fail or succeed. 

It’s my own personal version of spring cleaning (though I’m doing plenty of that as we go, too). I won’t go into specifics just yet, but new endeavors are always exciting. I’ve never been the type to remain stagnant; there’s always a new project on the horizon. My to do list is longer than ever, but it doesn’t worry me. I think I’m one of those weirdos who actually wants to work all the time – just like my mom! I’ve held a job in one form or another since I was around 12 (no joke – I used to work the registers at my dad’s auctions) so I’m not even sure I’d know what to do with only one job/40 hours a week. (Though trust me when I say I make plenty of couch time for myself.) 

Many people get down on birthdays, like it’s bad they’re getting older. As my husband puts it, “it beats the alternative.” If you’re the type of person who loves making resolutions on New Year’s, maybe a birthday or new season is a good way to look at it too. Haven’t done something you’ve always wanted to do yet? It’s fear that holds us back – but the thing is, even if you do fail, you can say you gave it your best. You won’t regret not trying. You can tweak until you DO succeed if you’re determined enough. Make it a goal to at least try it and see what happens before your next birthday. 

Or better yet, quit waiting around for things to happen. I’m a firm believer in going after what you want – you don’t really expect the universe to reward you without a solid effort, do you?

Generation (The Imitation Series, Book 3)

Releasing October 13, 2015

Generation-revised2

After months of pretending to be Raven Rogen, Ven feels less like a clone and more like a human than ever. But when Raven’s father, Titus—the same man who engineered Ven—discovers her plan to escape, everything she’s worked so hard for is taken away in one explosive moment.

Now she’s imprisoned in Twig City, the secret warehouse where she grew up. She spends her days plotting ways to get back to the outside world, determined to topple Titus’s empire and free every last Imitation. But Titus’s reach is extensive and his plans are more deadly than she realized.

In the shocking conclusion to the Imitation series, one wrong move could mean the end for Ven and everyone she’s come to love.

Bonus Scene from Linc

*Two Months After the End of Deviation*

 

The car is warm despite the chill outside. My window has fogged and I shift trying to get a better view. My legs cramp at being bent so long. I stretch them slowly, first right and then left. My knee pops and I wince. Anna looks over, an apology on the edge of her lips.

“I’m fine,” I say.

She presses her lips together and I know what she’s thinking. We could leave. But neither of us is willing to give up with so little to report back.

The mission is to watch Marla, the woman Titus uses as his gatekeeper out of Twig City. She’s one option among a scant few that we’ve come up with as a way in to look for Ven. Melanie suggested we follow her and try to find a weakness, something we can use against her. But the woman is a robot. She goes to work, she comes home, she watches The Biggest Loser. If we don’t find anything tonight, we’ll move on. I need to watch, to spot something we can exploit. I can’t do that through frosted glass.

Maybe my breaths are too heavy. I will myself to calm down. Anna’s still watching me, her brow furrowed like she’s still trying to come up with a way to fix me. If she only knew.

I pretend not to see her and stare through the window. Outside, the darkness is lit by the soft glow of the street lamps but it’s eerie to me. Shadows encroaching on the light. Monsters plotting. Everything in my life feels like a damn threat these days.

“You could climb in the backseat,” Anna offers finally.

I sigh. Anna’s always trying to please others.

“I’m good,” I repeat, pretending the stiffness doesn’t linger when I reposition my legs and tuck them underneath the dashboard. We’ve been here six hours and counting. Not how I wanted to spend the night—with a girl who isn’t Ven.

As usual when I think of her, I wince at the ache it brings. Anna’s gaze sharpens as she studies me across the shadowed interior of Melanie’s car.

“She’s fine, you know,” Anna says.

I consider pretending not to catch her meaning but it’s no use. I’ve been an open book with a harsh ending for months now. I pretend to stare at Marla’s townhouse at the end of the street but I don’t register a damn thing about it. Inside my head, Ven’s eyes blink back at me, trusting. Her lips pucker affectionately. All of the images are reminders that I failed her.

“How do you know?” I ask and hate the tortured sound of my own words.

“Ven is a fighter. She always has been. She’ll find a way to be okay.”

I ran a hand over my hair, rubbing hard as if that will erase the images that taunt me. “You sound really sure about that. But you can’t know. Not really. She’s in there and we’re out here and no one has even seen her.” Anger, helpless rotten fury, wells in my veins. Without meaning to, my hands ball into fists in my lap.

“He won’t kill her,” Anna says. I don’t know whether to be relieved or dismayed that she sounds so sure. Anna can be hopeful to the point of naïve. But right now, it’s all I’ve got to cling to. “If he was going to do it, he would’ve done it long before that night,” she adds.

I lean my head back on the seat, giving up the pretense of actually performing any recon. “How do you do that?” I ask.

“Do what?”

I look over in time to see her blink at me, so unaware of her own strength. Like Ven. I grimace, shove that aside, and force myself to focus on the present. “Be so optimistic all the time,” I say. “Even when things look completely hopeless you’re upbeat.”

Sh shrugs. “My Authentic was that way. Maybe she influenced me. Maybe it’s partly my personality.” She sounds uncertain and I glance sideways at her.

“And the other part?”

“Families don’t give up on each other,” she says. And it’s a matter-of-fact kind of thing that knocks me for a loop. Guilt gnaws at me. She’s right. And she’s family too. All of them are now and I’ve been so wrapped up in losing Ven and trying to get her back, I’ve forgotten all of them are messed up too.

“You’re right,” I say, forcing myself to sound like I mean it. For Anna’s sake. I twist to face her squarely. “We are family. And families always fight.”

She smiles at me but I look away. I don’t know how to tell her that particular kind of smile, the warm, fuzzy feeling it gives, reminds me of Ven. I don’t deserve a smile like that when I lost her to  a man like Titus Rogen.

I clear my throat and look around for something to say. “How’s your arm?” I ask.

She holds it up and even in the dim lighting I see the scar is already fading. “Much better,” she says.

I grunt, glad to see the infection didn’t cause permanent damage. Cutting out a GPS tracker is risky business. But she’s right, it looks a lot better. Much more healed than my sorry ass broken heart. I look up at Marla’s house one last time and start the engine. There’s nothing for us here. We’re going to have to do this another way.

Everyone is exactly like me. There is no one like me. 

Ven wrestles with these contradicting truths every day. A clone of wealthy eighteen-year-old Raven Rogen, Ven knows everything about the girl she was created to serve: the clothes she wears, the boys she loves, the friends she loves to hate. Yet she’s never met the Authentic Raven face-to-face. Imitations like Ven only get to leave the lab when they’re needed—to replace a dead Authentic, donate an organ, or complete a specific mission. And Raven has neverneeded Ven . . . until now.

When there is an attack on Raven’s life, Ven is thrust into the real world, posing as Raven to draw out the people who tried to harm her. But as Ven dives deeper into Raven’s world, she begins to question everything she was ever told. She exists for Raven, but is she prepared to sacrifice herself for a girl she’s never met?
