My 5th Anniversary As An Author: 2 FREE Books

On February 23, 2014, on my way to play tennis, a conversation that took place in Sedona, Arizona between my sister and my friend Al popped into my mind. The two talked about string theory and infinite parallel dimensions while I drove in rain and hail. The real-life discussion morphed into five young fictional characters in my mind telling me they were children of dissidents from a parallel dimension. Holy Cow!

The next day, I left for Los Angeles and Mexico. I purchased a 5-inch spiral notebook and did character development, world building, and plotting while on vacation. In August 2014, ‘The Chameleon Soul Mate’, the first book in The Worlds Apart series was published.

My second series, Nightshade Saga, spun off from a world I created in the second Worlds Apart book, ‘The Crystal Telepath’.

To celebrate my 5th anniversary, ‘The Chameleon Soul Mate’ and ‘Nightshade’ are both FREE February 23rd and February 24th, exclusively on Amazon.  Both series will stay on Kindle Unlimited another 90 days for my KU fans.

Out and About at Literary Love & Once Upon A Book

Attending conference is always a lot of fun. It’s wonderful meeting my readers and gaining new ones. At Literary Love: Savannah, Savannah Verte (in the big red hat) and I co-sponsored a lunch table. The readers were given cute fascinator hats Savannah picked up in New Orleans. Two of our readers bugged out before the photo was taken. Naturally, I wore my purple fascinator!

At Literary Love: Savannah, I was also on 3 panels (PNR, YA, and scifi/fantasy/UF). I enjoyed listening to panel discussions when I attended conferences as a reader and was thrilled to participate in these 3 panels. This was the PNR panel which included Laura Hawks and Milly Taiden.

Conference are also an opportunity to network with fellow authors and do some business. An industrious reader caught me and Jennifer Wentworth having a quick meeting related to the new scifi series I will be releasing in October/November/December. I posted this picture on Facebook and someone asked if I had fallen. It was actually more comfortable talking and taking notes sitting on the floor than sitting on the chair.

At Once Upon a Book in Frankenmuth, Michigan it was a lot of fun dressing up as a Greek Goddess. That’s my roommate at the convention Laura Hawks with me. Yes, I know I’m not in purple or have my fascinator on. It felt strange!

Download The Soul Mate for FREE

In 2014 I wrote the first book in the Worlds Apart series. Alexandra and Tarsea had the benefit of his parents being soul mates. I always wondered how his parents got through their first days as soul mates without any guidance.

As a member of my newsletter group, I’d like to offer the book to you FREE of charge. Grab it using the link below on AUGUST 24TH AND 25TH!

I hope you enjoy the novella and Leenea and Zane’s story.

The book is exclusively on Amazon and KindleUnlimited, as is the rest of the Worlds Apart series.

His first touch electrified her!

Leenea Rickard never made a decision without fear her mind-control telepathic father would apply his influence. Even the man she ultimately married would not be her choice. Her fate had not mattered until her eyes connected with a stranger at an anti-government rally.

Zane Childers realized what Leenea was to him the moment he touched her. They must hide the true nature of their relationship or become targets of a corrupt government. Their future is jeopardized when a boy’s life is threatened and they decide to save the child.
