BURNED, A Donovan Circus Novel: Teaser 1

I’m headed to a conference for work this week and will be away, but I couldn’t help wanting to get you guys excited for my upcoming release BURNED! I’ve got a few teaser images I’d like to share with you over the next few days, so without further ado, here’s #1.

Happy Sunday and have a great week, friends! (And let me know what you think in the comments – are you worried yet?!)


New Gifts from BURNED Listed in the Gifted Glossary!

I’ve got a surprise for you all today! If you’ve visited my Gifted Glossary, you know that this is a list composed of individual gifts we’ve met so far in the Donovan Circus world. From Firestarters like Lucy to Empaths, Runners, and Transporters, this list should help with any questions you may have about the gifts used in the series. BUT, it’s time to introduce you to a few more!

In anticipation of BURNED’s release, I wanted to share a few new gifts that you’ll be seeing in the second adventure. There are of course the usual suspects like Shapeshifters and Telepaths, but what do you think comes with a gift like a Manipulator, Chameleon, or Translator? Find out and get a taste of what’s to come!

As always, there’s a catch – the new terms are already listed in alphabetical order within the gifts you’ve already met. So you’ll have to be familiar with the ones you know in order to see the new ones! (I promise it’s not as tough as it sounds – I mean, I’ve already listed 3 for you to get started!)

Go visit the GIFTED GLOSSARY now to learn more gifts and see what’s in store for Lucy and the Donovan gang in the second adventure, BURNED, coming soon!


Chapter One of BURNED Released Tomorrow!

I’m so excited about the upcoming release of BURNED that I wanted to share a little bit with you this week. I just can’t help myself!

However, there’s a catch. You have to be a newsletter subscriber – it’s how I’m able to give special stuff to my hardcore fans 😉 A newsletter is a responsibility that I do not take lightly, so rest assured I will only email you with special stuff (like releases or early cover reveals), contests and giveaways, and/or big news. I solemnly swear never to spam you, sell your email, or any of those other kooky things that give readers the heebs AND the jeebs.

In any case, thank you for subscribing and I truly hope you enjoy the first chapter of BURNED. It’s going to be a wild ride (and lucky for subscribers, you’re up in the front passenger seat.)

If you are not already a newsletter subscribe, you can sign up on the left side of my website on this page or go here to sign up.

Amazon KDP Select: GIFTED Topped Free Charts! (Thank You!)

From April 30 – May 2, GIFTED, A DONOVAN CIRCUS NOVEL was free to download for your Kindle. For 3 days, I did nothing but refresh my pages and watch the number of downloads tick upward, my awe and excitement punctuated by my disbelief and terror. Between 3 days and several countries, the fact that my first book is now in the hands of over 20,000 people is both amazing and scary as hell.

Now, I know that it doesn’t necessarily mean all 20K people will read it. There are tons of folks out there who download only because it’s free. This doesn’t mean that I’ll even get many reviews out of it. (I will say I’ve already gotten 6 back, which probably makes it  worth it!) However, my sales have jumped, skyrocketed in my case, and while this may only be for a short time, I can’t tell you how amazed I am to see those numbers go up every time I check the page. It might not mean much to others. But it means a LOT to me. As for the KDP program, I’d say it was well worth it.

It might mean my name is out there more. It might make me more recognizable when someone goes to look at my work or buy my second book. It also bumps my ranking up in the Amazon secret sauce algorithms, which means better exposure. And that, my friends, is a win in my book.

Thanks to the most supportive group I could ever know, thanks to you the readers, thanks to the promoters who helped me with their knowledge and expertise, GIFTED, A DONOVAN CIRCUS NOVEL made it to the top in the free charts.

In the Amazon Best Sellers Top Free categories, it hit #1 in Science Fiction Adventure, #1 in Fantasy, and perhaps most exciting to me, #5 in the Top 100. My goal was to break into the Top 10 and I’m beyond thrilled it surpassed my expectations into the Top 5.

This is because of you. There are no words to express my appreciation, no thanks enough I can give to tell you just how much your support means to me. I’m honored you’ve joined me for this journey and can’t wait to see where it takes us.
