New Alec and Adri Book, Forsaken, is Live!


I'm incredibly happy to be able to announce that the next installment of Alec and Adri's story, Forsaken, is now live just one week after Trapped became available for purchase.

The Setup:
The power he needs to protect his friends and family is just outside of Alec Graves' reach. The dominant shape shifter pack in North America is circling like vultures and there are other, more savage opponents approaching in the distance.

Given the danger he's in, Alec doesn't have time for a broken heart, but Adri's departure has left him barely able to function. The pressures inside his pack are building to lethal levels and for the first time in his life, he's not sure he can walk the path that honor demands of him.

Walking out on Alec was the hardest thing Adri had ever done, but she didn't bargain for the long-term impacts that would be involved. She hasn't been able to get past her feelings for him yet and it's starting to impact nearly every aspect of her life.

Even more concerning, she now knows what the darkness really hides. Dangers that she thought she'd left behind in Sanctuary are stalking her again, but this time Alec's pack isn't in a position to protect her.

Forsaken is available from:
Amazon US ($4.99)
Amazon UK (GBP 2.99)
iTunes ($4.99)
Barnes & Noble ($4.99)
Smashwords ($4.99)
Kobo ($4.99)

In Other News:
I haven't forgotten about all of you Guadel Chronicles fans.  Brittle Bonds is in the final stages of editing and I should have it in shape to upload within the next few days.  Given current lead times on iTunes it's starting to look doubtful that Brittle Bond will be available for sale there or on Kobo before Christmas, but with any luck it should still go live at Amazon, B&N and Smashwords before the holidays arrive.  The vast bulk of the Guadel Chronicles fans are Amazon shoppers, which ultimately is part of the reason that I prioritized these last few books the way I have, but I'm still very sorry that the iTunes based fans won't see it go live for a little while until after Christmas.  If you're desperate for your fix you can always download the kindle app to your reader of choice or purchase from Smashwords and side load the .epub file onto your normal reading device.

For any of you planning on skipping Trapped and going straight to Forsaken, I'd like to put one last plug in for you to reconsider.  I'm very proud of how Trapped turned out, but more importantly it introduces two characters whose lives are going to be pivotal in helping Alec and Adri get where they need to go. I'd hate for you to pick up Forsaken and spend parts of the book scratching your head because you'd missed out on the back story in Forsaken.

As always, thank you all for waiting so patiently while I got Forsaken finally ready to go and for all you do to help spread the word, may you all have an enjoyable holiday season.
