Flake-out Friday: My Novel’s Gonna Be Published, Yo!!


A lot of you know already, but today is my OFFICIAL announcement of signing a publishing contract!

Last week, I accepted an offer of publication by Kae Wilson Publishing. They’re a new small press, and their team is fabulous! I’m totally excited to work with them. Not only will the team help with editing, cover design, etc, but they will ALSO help with MARKETING!!

Talk about feeling supported!

I’m nervous about this (seeing as it’s my first book to be pubbed, and it’s also my baby, LOL!), but with the Kae Wilson team, my mind is set at ease. 🙂

SO, to spread the joy (and celebrate the AWESOMENESS of this occasion), I’m gonna gift TWO commenters with the following prizes:

1st place) A novel of your choice (either e-copy or paperback)

2nd place) A necklace and earring set symbolizing my novel, ENDURE

Please spread the word! The giveaway will be open until next Wednesday (March 7, 2012, at midnight EST). I’ll announce the winners next Friday!


Seventeen-year-old Justin’s anemic blood is a blessing. Or a curse. It all depends on who you ask.

In the Post-Collapse world where the immortal Vie lord over the rapidly diminishing mortals, Anemies like Justin and his sister are rabidly sought after. Their blood causes the Vie to age, a powerful threat, and yet a priceless hope for the Earth’s downtrodden humans.

When Justin’s sister is kidnapped by the Vie, he vows to rescue her. He strikes a deal with the human resistance, but they’re nothing but a cult with delusions that a messianic Anemie will free them all. They think that person is Justin; whereas Justin thinks they’ll need someone stronger than a teenage boy who gets dizzy after running twenty feet.

In a race to find his sister before she dies, Justin learns that not all Vie are evil, and not all humans have his best interests at heart. Trapped with choosing between saving what’s left of humanity and saving his sister Justin can’t decide which option is going to get him killed first.
