Echo in Time audiobook giveaway.

The long-awaited (at least long awaited by me) audiobook of  Echo in Time is now available! And that means I have some Audible codes to give away to reviewers. I’ll be giving away 15 to commenters on this blog. (Yep, just comment. If there are more than 15 comments, I’ll use Random.org to choose the winners.)

Don’t have an Audible account? That could work out even better for you because when you sign up you get a free book so you can just choose Echo in Time  (Or you can get Erasing Time if you haven’t read the first one. The book contains spoilers.)

Did I mention it has an adorable British narrator? I swear, I love listening to accents so much that I want to just write books that take place across the pond.

Here’s the blurb and then I’ll give you directions to sign up if you don’t have an account.

Echo in Time delivers on “the possibility of an equally thrilling sequel” (Kirkus Reviews) to Erasing Time.

After being pulled 400 years into the future, twins Taylor and Sheridan have found some refuge from the government of Traventon, which used the dangerous Time Strainer to yank the girls from the past. Yet the threat of the dangerous technology still looms. Taylor and an ally, Joseph, are selected to go on a mission to destroy the time machine and weapon. But their actions before they do may have major consequences for the future and the past.

Action-packed and romantic, this futuristic sequel to Erasing Time is perfect for fans of dystopian and sci-fi novels such as The Maze Runner by James Dashner, Across the Universe by Beth Revis, and Matched by Ally Condie.

Here’s directions to join Audible and get Echo in Time for Free https://www.audible.com/t2/title?asin=B07CJW16ZB

The best day of his life, the worst day of hers.

Back in college, Marco Dawson never thought of Belle as anything more than a friend. If she had crossed his mind on his wedding day, it was probably only to wonder why she hadn’t shown up to be a bridesmaid. After all, his new wife was her old roommate. Seven years have passed since then, and Belle just found out that Marco is divorced and vacationing with his family in an elegant Cancun resort. She’s not about to let the right man get away twice. She heads to the resort where she plans to casually bump into Marco and ignite some romantic flames.

But Belle hadn’t planned on one thing: Flynn Dawson, Marco’s handsome, charming, and determined twin brother. He thinks Marco and his ex-wife can make amends and he’s not about to let Belle stand in the way.

Part Sabrina, part While You Were Sleeping, romantic comedy readers will eat this book up!

Technology strikes again (I didn’t mean to blow off your email)

Just wanted to let you know that if you emailed me at the end of January or beginning of February, I received your email, but couldn’t respond. Every time I tried, I got a Mailer Daemon. (My tech guy assures me the word isn’t supposed to be demon but I disagree.) For some weird reason, the computer thought everyone who emailed me had my email address. I’m pretty sure I’d notice you all if you were living in my house.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your email and the lovely things you say even when I can’t respond!

There are good people in the world

For the last three days, the world of kidlit has undergone scrutiny over sexual harassment allegations. It’s enough to make anyone despair about the state of humanity in general and the children’s publishing in specific. I feel for the victims and worry about the state of the souls of the perpetrators. Guilt does its own damage to a person, but that is a topic for another blog.

My agent (The awesome Tim Travaglini) called me this morning to see whether I was “on the ledge” because he knew one of my friends had been named in the allegations. I was touched that he was concerned enough to take time out of his day to talk with me.

Which made me realize, yet again, that I know so many wonderful, caring people in this business. I expected many things when I became a writer, but I never imagined that the greatest benefits of putting pen to paper (Or more accurately sitting alone in front of a computer) was the many friendships I would gain.

I know so many wonderful, kind, generous people–people who have helped me and others with no thought of benefitting themselves. So no matter what happens next, I just want to say that I am glad I know so many of you. The world is still a good place.

FAQ about Slayers: The Dragon Lords (Yes, there is a fifth book)

Will there be a fifth book?

I got an email last night from a lady telling me that the book didn’t seem to be complete. “So many issues were left unresolved,” she told me. “I thought you said this was the last book and you were going to write two different endings.”

Yeah. I did say that. And if you didn’t read the dedication (who reads those?) or you didn’t catch my posts on Facebook bemoaning the fact that the book was too long and I was having to split it once again, you might be very unsatisfied by the ending.

Yes, there is one last book in the series. It is mostly written. (I have a couple scenes left to write) And there will be a Team Jesse ending and a Team Dirk ending so you’ll have to choose which one you want to read.

Will the book be available in paperback?

Yes.

Before a physical cover can be designed, the book needs to be typeset, which is happening now. So it will still be a few weeks until it’s available. It would already be available if I didn’t have the habit of changing things right until the last moment. But no. I’m probably still going to make some small changes from the ebook to the physical book.

If you have any other questions, ask in the comment section and I’ll answer them.
