Big news! Not one but two new series and the epic awesome that is the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Hi everyone! *waves from not-yet-autumn-like Vegas* I'm so excited to finally be able to share some awesome news with you. Read on to find out more.

New Series #1: The Hero Agenda

I am so, so, SO excited to share this awesome news about the new series I'm co-writing with the ever-fabulous Tracy Deebs. We've been keeping hush-hush about this for a few months now and it's been killing me, but finally we can go public! Here’s the official announcement:

POWERLESS, the first story of The Hero Agenda, about an ordinary girl in a superhero world whose life flips upside-down when desperate villains break into her mother's top secret lab and open her eyes to the shadowy world of genetic experimentation and violent torture that has been the real agenda at superhero central for far too long, an agenda she must derail before her mother, her best friends, and the general population–villains and ordinaries alike–become its ultimate victims, and the sequel, RECKLESS, by Tera Lynn Childs (Oh. My. Gods., Forgive My Fins) and Tracy Deebs (Tempest Rising, Doomed) to Annette Pollert-Morgan at Sourcebooks Fire by Jenny Bent at the Bent Agency and Emily Sylvan Kim at Prospect Agency for publication Summer 2015.
That's right kids, summer 2015! As in next summer. Prepare yourselves, because the heroes are coming!

New Series #2: Darkly Fae

This is another one I've been sitting on for a while, mostly because I've been trying to figure out what to do with this project that started out as part of an anthology that never happened, tried to be a romance novel for a while, and finally settled on being indie-pubbed.

WHEN MAGIC SLEEPS (November 4, 2014) will be the first novella of the Darkly Fae YA fantasy series that's set in our world with a twist, where the fae realm exists all around us but just beyond sight. Here’s the blurb:

When magic sleeps, everything changes.

Winnie Price visits another world in her dreams, one she thought was pure imagination until she sees an owl transform into a fae prince on midsummer’s eve. With his clan on the brink of war, Cathair O Cuana knows his feelings for the human girl can never be more than fantasy. In a world where dreams, magic, and war collide, they must risk everything for a chance at happily ever after.

Your first chance to see the beautiful cover will be during the YA Scavenger Hunt (see below) and I hope you love it as much as I do.

When Magic Sleeps is already available for preorder from Amazon and Smashwords with more etailers coming soon! Find out more on my website.

Fall 2014 YA Scavenger Hunt

It's that time of year again, when the YA Scavenger Hunt takes over the YA author webverse for a while. This go round I am hosting fabulous fantasy author C.J. Redwine, who is sharing an exclusive sneak peek at the prologue of her all new book, The Shadow Queen. (It sounds SO good!)

You'll have to follow the gold team hunt to find my host, who will reveal the cover of When Magic Sleeps.

If you don't already know about YASH (it's what the cool kids call it) check out the official blog for deets.

In addition to the huge numbers of books you can win in the official YASH contests, many authors are also doing bonus giveaway. I will have a complete set of signed Fins books up for grabs.

When everything goes live at noon Pacific Time on Thursday, October 2nd, you can start your hunt on my post. But work fast, because everything comes down at noon Pacific Time on Sunday, October 5th.
Yay for another news-filled month!

Ta-ta until next time.
