UK Releases

I had an absolutely fantastic time when I visited the UK back in March and April 2015 to promote SHADOW STUDY. I visited London, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, and Bristol and it was amazing. The best part was meeting all my readers who were able to take the time to visit me. I'm truly touched and honored by the sheer number of readers willing to stand in line! Especially fun for me were those informal gatherings at the local pubs. It was nice to get to know a few of my readers better and to become friends!

I posted a bunch of photos and details about the trip. Click HERE for more details.

NIGHT STUDY is out in the UK!

Ever since being kidnapped from the Illiais Jungle as a child, Yelena Zaltana's life has been fraught with peril. But the recent loss of her Soulfinding abilities has endangered her more than ever before. As she desperately searches for a way to reclaim her magic, her enemies are closing in, and neither Ixia nor Sitia is safe for her anymore. Especially since the growing discord between the two countries and the possibility of a war threatens everything Yelena holds dear.

Valek is determined to protect Yelena, but he's quickly running out of options. The Commander suspects that his loyalties are divided, and he's been keeping secrets from Valek...secrets that put him, Yelena and all their friends in terrible danger. As they uncover the various layers of the Commander's mysterious plans, they realize it's far more sinister than they could have ever imagined.

The next book in the Study series will be DAWN STUDY, due out February 2017. (publication dates are always subject to change, which is why you should subscribe to my free email newsletter ;)

SHADOW STUDY The first book in the new set of Study books (also known as the Soulfinder Series book #1, the Chronicles of Ixia book #7) is available in the UK!

Once, only her own life hung in the balance...

Oddly enough, when Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. But she'd survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia. Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands and to protect her relationship with Valek.

Suddenly, though, they are beset on all sides by those vying for power through politics and intrigue. Valek's job--and his life--are in danger. As Yelena tries to uncover the scope of these plots, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. She must keep that a secret--or her enemies will discover just how vulnerable she really is--while searching for who or what is responsible for neutralizing her powers.

Yes, the days of tasting poisons were much simpler. And certainly not as dangerous...

NEW COVERS IN THE UK! My UK publisher has re-printed my three Study books with new covers and are calling them the Chronicles of Ixia. They used the Australian Study covers (see below) and are hoping the fresh look will attract a new generation of readers and they are also moving the books to their Mira Ink imprint. All three Study books were released in June 2013. Mira Ink plans to re-print the Glass books as well. However, instead of using existing covers, they created new covers that match the new UK Study set (see below). Aren't they pretty? The three Glass books will be released in September 2013.
