BLOG HOP

I have been tagged in a blog hop by a very talented author Julie Casey.  I loved her book How I Became a Teenage Survivalist which is being followed by two more in the series.  Her website is www.julielcasey.com  

I am now tagging Whitney Grady, another awesome author who has written I Am Currency, a must-read! 






I Am Currency
(Fall 2013, Pants on Fire Press)
www.pantsonfirepress.com




When a meteor slams into the earth causing a shift in the earth’s magnetic core, the age of technology ends and economies across the globe crash. Now knowledge is not only power…it is currency. So for tenth grader Nevel Walker, having a photographic memory is a secret his family has to try to keep. With a dystopian government that keeps all known books under lock and key looming as a constant threat and with parents involved in an underground movement to protect the books that do still secretly exist, Nevel is in a dangerous position. A chase through the Australian Outback changes Nevel’s fate as he finds love, mystery, and almost-certain death.

Time Lost Teenage Survivalist II Releases Today!



In this sequel to How I Became a Teenage Survivalist, Ben's 13th year was when his family fell apart, but his 14th year is when his whole world, or more precisely, the whole world, collapses. He had thought 13 was his unlucky number, the year that Time turned its back on him, but he was wrong; that year, it was he who had turned his back on Time. The following year, the fury of the sun turns back Time for everyone in the world.

On PF (Power Failure) Day, a huge electromagnetic surge from the sun destroys the power grids and civilization as we know it. Living in the middle of downtown Kansas City makes survival near impossible. Starvation, dehydration, disease, freezing temperatures, and out-of-control fires imperil the desperate population. After facing unimaginable losses, Ben finds hope in for the future when he meets Sara, who has endured her own share of agonizing loss. But when a murderous gang threatens to take away everything Ben has left, they flee to a wilderness area of a large city park where they learn to live off the land for survival.

Available on Amazon.

Search For Agent

My search for an agent has not been going well. I have thought about it and decided to self publish Entwined Courage.  I will be starting my third novel as soon as I can. 

Now I am waiting on my cover for Entwined Courage to be done. I feel like a kid in a candy store.
