Announcements!

Okay, so I've renamed and re-released my short story, what was once called INSIDER INFORMATION.

It's now called RESIST, and here's the new cover, with the new blurb.


About RESIST: Zenn Bower has spent his life falling in love with Violet Schoenfeld. After he turned twelve, he learned his father was part of an underground revolution called the Resistance, a group of free-thinking citizens fighting against the mind controlling governement. He joined, putting his considerable talents to use: lying, flying, and voice control.

He wishes life inside the Resistance could be easy. He yearns to tell Vi what he's doing in the middle of the night. He wants cocky leader of the Resistance Jag Barque to back off.

Zenn runs a mission with Blaze, Jag's older brother, to Freedom. It's a simple get in, get out procedure. But things go wrong when Blaze breaks protocol and Zenn uses his voice to detain him. Zenn's met by Thane Meyers at the drop location, and he has an interesting proposal for Zenn. 

Ultimately Zenn has to choose: Violet or the Resistance. 

This 20-page short story takes place before events in the full-length novel, POSSESSION, and provides insider information into the Resistance, as well as Vi and Zenn's stormy relationship. 

RESIST is just as FREE as ever, and you can download it here or here, as well as read it online here.


Also, you may have noticed me tweeting about Entangled authors a lot lately. That's because I've joined them as a junior publicist! 



I've loved organizing events and blog tours for myself, and it seemed a natural fit for me to continue in that vein with other authors. I'm certainly learning a lot, and this new venture into the marketing side of publishing flexes a different muscle than writing--and I like it!

I'm back to teaching now, and that means back to blogging! I've enjoyed my break, but now I'm back! 

Fill me in on EVERYTHING I missed!
