Now Available: M.I.N.D. (Mind's Eye, #3) and Mind's Eye: The Complete Trilogy

I know I haven't updated this blog in a while, but that's only because I've been busy wrapping up the Mind's Eye series. The final book in the trilogy is now available, as is the omnibus edition, which contains all three books in one. Both of these works contain an alternate epilogue, as well as a prequel story.

I'll do my best to update the Mind's Eye book page this weekend to include all Amazon links.

Happy reading! :)

Reference Books for Writers

I have many books sitting on my bookshelves (what avid reader doesnt?), the majority of which are fiction. But a few are non-fiction: my reference books. Ah, yes. A quintessential, writerly thing to have, those tomes of inspiration. I’ve read most of the ones I own, but not all. Eventually, I’ll get around to the others, and then probably make another blog post, a part two, about more reference books for writing. Until then, my friends, here are the ones I’ve read and would recommend to anyone interested in improving their craft:

Your First Novel by Ann Rittenberg and Laura Whitcomb

In Your First Novel, a seasoned literary agent and author team up to give you the inside scoop of what happens behind the scenes, from query letter to publication. They give helpful tips on how to submit your manuscript to an agent and get it noticed amid the slush pile.

The First Five Pages by Noah Lukeman 

The ultimate goal of The First Five Pages is to teach you how to capture an agent's (and reader's) attention within the--you guessed it--first five pages and keep them reading until the very end.

Teaser Tuesday: M.I.N.D. (Mind's Eye, #3)

While I'm currently outlining the first season of When the World Ended and We Were Invaded and editing M.I.N.D., the final book in the Mind's Eye trilogy, I thought I'd throw in a little snippet of M.I.N.D. for Teaser Tuesday. The following teaser has not been edited and is subject to change during edits.

Since Borphan and the others agreed to help me when I needed them for battle, I returned to Cassandra’s dreamscape in time for dinner. Appearing outside the cafeteria, I didn’t make it to the entrance before Dom approached me. Again. 
“Kearly, I need to talk to you,” he said. 
“Yeah, you’ve told me already. What’s up?”
Dom opened his mouth but was interrupted by none other than the wonderful Cassandra. Surprise, surprise. “Dom, Rafe is looking for you. He needs to speak with you, in the library.” Her eyes latched onto mine, and I could’ve sworn the corner of her lips twitched. Was that her way of trying not to smile?
Dom’s shoulders slumped, and his jaw clenched. Rolling his eyes, he responded, “He can wait. I’m busy.”
Cassandra looked like he had slapped her. “Or maybe this”—she motioned back and forth between Dom and me—“can wait. What Rafe has to say might be urgent.”
He stared at me with a look of defeat. “Soon,” he said. “I promise.”

Summarize Sunday

I haven't posted a Summarize Sunday since September, guys! SEPTEMBER. That's crazyness! And, well, it's partly because I've been really busy trying to finish another series (which will be finished in the next few weeks, since the first draft of M.I.N.D. is now complete). I have several folders I need to clear out on my computer, and since it's the last Sunday of March, I feel it's time to do a little Spring cleaning. :)

The Unimaginable by Dina Silver
It Had to Be Him by Tamra Baumann
Everything Burns by Vincent Zandri

Book Review: Intuition

Luke and his twin sister Sera have unusual abilities. Hers is a gift—she can heal with a touch of her hand. His is a curse—he can see the future but he can’t do anything about it.

On a hike up the mountain, Luke has a vision unlike any other—one that leaves him terrified. Knowing that it will come true—and that he must do everything in his power to stop it—leaves his own future uncertain.
