Dear Writer-Friends,

I've been self-publishing since 2011, and I've shared the knowledge I've gained in two books: the Indie Author Survival Guide, Second Edition, and For Love or Money. I'm not an indie rockstar or a breakout success: I'm one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. These books are my way of helping my fellow authors discover the freedom of indie publishing. Write on, writer-friends!

COVER REVEAL: Closed Hearts (Releases May 23rd)

Book Two of the Mindjack Trilogy

When you control minds, only your heart can be used against you.

Eight months ago, Kira Moore revealed to the mindreading world that mindjackers like herself were hidden in their midst. Now she wonders if telling the truth was the right choice after all. As wild rumors spread, a powerful anti-jacker politician capitalizes on mindreaders’ fears and strips jackers of their rights. While some jackers flee to Jackertown—a slum rife with jackworkers who trade mind control favors for cash—Kira and her family hide from the readers who fear her and jackers who hate her. But when a jacker Clan member makes Kira’s boyfriend Raf collapse in her arms, Kira is forced to save the people she loves by facing the thing she fears most: FBI agent Kestrel and his experimental torture chamber for jackers.


(Is my cover designer, D. Robert Pease, a genius, or what??)


Release Date: May 23rd
And time to party ... :)

On release day, we'll have lots of 
fun content and guest posts and prizes.

WILL YOU JOIN THE PARTY?


Thanks to the many awesome bloggers participating in the cover reveal today! You people rock my world!

    1. This one has a more "romance" feel to it, as my 13 yo son pointed out with disdain. LOL! So I can see why you would enjoy it more! Which goes with the Closed Hearts title and theme. But I promise the story is still action-filled and SFish, for those who are concerned about that. :)

    1. How cool is that?? Thanks so much for picking Open Minds! If you haven't seen it already, I have some book club questions on the Mindjack site. Open Minds is also in several libraries, if you put in a request, maybe your local one will carry it? Thanks again!!
