Happy New Year’s eve!


Well, today, sadly, marks the end of my debut year! It’s been a roller coaster ride of awesome and I’m both sad and relieved to see it end.  I’m so grateful for every single one of you who made this year as awesome as it could be and I can’t wait to ride the hopefully as fantabulous, but slightly less hectic sophomore year roller coaster.

Yes, for those that have been asking, there will be a second book to the Elysium Chronicles.  I can’t say too much about it, but I’m busily working on edits for it and I know the cover designer is working just as hard to bring you an even more gorgeous cover.   I’ve been in discussions with my editor about the cover and I’m extremely excited to see how it all turns out.  And yes, there is a title and I LOVE IT, but I  don’t think I’m allowed to share it yet, so I guess we’re just going to have to patiently (*snort*) wait.  😛

And now onto the best part of this post. A DARK GRAVE (Gavin’s short story prequel) is FREE today and tomorrow to celebrate the New Year! Just click here to go to the Amazon download page.

So here’s to the ending of 2012 and the beginning of an even better 2013!

A DARK GRAVE now available!

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas.  Can you believe it’s almost 2013?! I can’t. This year has just flown by! It’s been filled with some awesome times and I’m so sad it’s coming to an end, but 2013 looks like it’ll be even more awesome and I can’t wait to see what it brings.

A few housekeeping details and then I’ll get to the reason for this post. First, while I’m taking a minor break from my internet hiatus to post this, I’m actually away from my “office” until January 7th. I won’t be answering emails or be on twitter or facebook until then. Although I reserve the right to change my mind before then. 😛

That being said,  I’ll be starting the new year with a bang and doing a lot of events. At least one a month. January has three already lined up! Why so many? I’m excited to say I’ll be participating in The Sunshine Tour with at least 10 other YA authors! For more details, check out the Sunshine Tour’s site. And  keep an eye on my events page. And I’ll be participating in several conferences that I’m extremely excited about, those are of course listed on my events page.

And now (drum roll please), without further adieu, the reason for my post. I’m pleased to announce that Gavin’s short story prequel A DARK GRAVE is now available in English on Kindle!

Here’s the beautiful cover art done by the fabulous Eithne O’Hanlon, the same artist who did the cover for RENEGADE!



And here’s the blurb:


An Elysium Chronicles short story: the beginning.There is only one place forbidden to the people of Gavin’s village; the island just off the shore, rumored to be haunted. Cursed.All who venture to the island disappear.But Gavin doesn’t believe in such things. He is a hunter; since his father’s death, he is the only one who can provide for the family. Silly rumors of ghosts aren’t going to stop him from crossing the dark waters to the island in search of fresh game…

It’s available on kindle now for only $0.99 (FREE if you’re a Prime member), but I’ll be having an after Christmas/New Year’s special where it’ll be free on New Year’s eve and New Years day.  More details here.

I hope you all enjoy Gavin’s story and have a great New Year’s!
