Another Announcement and a Contest ... because HALLOWEEN.

Hi everyone. I'm feeling pretty good right now so I'd like to have a little overdo fun here on the blog.

First of all, my announcement ...
I have release dates for the remaining volumes of The Foreseers series. Yay! Let's list those dates, shall we? Drumroll please ....
SEPTENARY, volume 2 of The Foreseers series, will be released December 10th, 2015.
HIVE MIND, volume 3 of the series, will be released February 10th, 2016, both volumes on eBook and POD through Amazon.

This is exciting news because it means one thing ... there will be plenty to read throughout the winter months. Can you think of anything nicer than a warm house, a cup of hot beverage on the table next to your favorite reading spot, maybe a small fire crackling in the fireplace, and a good book in your lap that has the ability to take you on an adventure you might not get to experience if you weren't a reader? I want that. I want that right now.

And now for the contest. Welcome to the "I have a new vlog, please watch it," contest. Or, to save on time, "The Happy Chaos Vlog" contest.
Why are we having a contest right now? Because I haven't done one in ages, they are fun, and I'm feeling almost like a normal human being. Thank you, chemocation.
How to enter this awesome contest:
* 1 entry: Like my author page on Facebook. If you've already done that, head on over and like the Gearketeers page. That page is just as fun.

OR a sign with the name of a loved one you have that has or is battling cancer. Post this picture somewhere within your own social media avenues and link it to this blog, share it on my Facebook page, or tweet it.

So there you go. lots of ways to enter. But what are the prizes?

- All entries will be given a number and entered into the pool. Randomly, 7 numbers will be drawn. We plan to make a vlog of this.
- Winners will be notified via the means they entered, (Facebook, twitter, a blog, etc.)
- One prize per mailing address.
- Please keep all comments positive, light, and fun. Because being positive, light, and fun is much more pleasant that the alternative.
- Have fun!

I'm so excited to be doing this. Feeling well enough to release a book, start a vlog, throw a contest; it all makes me very happy to be able to do normal things. Soon (mid-November), I will be back on the heavy chemo. I will do my very best to keep the chaos around me, and within me, happy chaos. That's the best kind of chaos to have.

Happy Contestering,


I'm releasing a new series ... volume 1 on October 10th, 2015!

I'm so excited to announce that I'm releasing a new 3 volume realistic fantasy series, THE FORESEERS.

After overhearing her parents arguing over whether or not to hospitalize her, sixteen year old Landrie Moxon runs away from home. She ends up in New York City where she finds 5 other teens just like her. Landrie and her roommates soon discover that they are special ... each of them possessing a similar mental "hang-up" that keeps them from living normal lives. Landrie's mind is controlled by random photos of people, some she has seen in real life and some she has not. Her mental infarction makes her a recluse, withdrawn, quiet, and distrustful. 
Her roommates also have images that control their minds. One sees a shadow of an action, one sees a date, one sees a time of day, and so on. When the six pieces of information come together, the tight-knit group sees an event from the future. Sadly, the events are traumatic, some even fatal. Landrie and the other's don't realize how special their power to foresee the future really is. 
Landrie meets a face from her mind and begins to spend time with him. Eventually, Landrie and Aidan Kane fall in love. Aidan's father is a politician that is running for President of the United States, a situation that ads a complexity to the foreseers that even Landrie doesn't recognize at first. And there are others that know of the foreseers's gift that cause the group problems, too. 
Will Landrie be able to have both Aidan and the other foreseers in her life? Will she ever embrace her special power and learn to control her mind? These answers will be revealed in the three volume, realistic fantasy series, THE FORESEERS.

THE FORESEERS cover created by: Conner Damon
The first volume, THE FORESEERS, will be released: OCTOBER 10th, 2015.
The second volume, SEPTENARY, will be released: TBA.
The third volume, HIVE MIND, will be released: TBA.

I am so excited to release this new series. I adore the characters of this series and the way they change and grow throughout their stories. I hope you enjoy these books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Happy reading,
