It’s a game to die for… First, we used them for soldiers. Then laborers. Now the Undead are avatars — ex-cons and Volunteers, bought and paid for, then killed, implanted and reanimated — in a virtual reality video game. Welcome to the world of GAMELAND. Set in the middle of Long Island’s forbidden wasteland, Gameland is where the rich and privileged pit zombies against one another, all for kicks. Most people buy their way into The Game. Others get in by dying. Only the foolish would try to hack their way in. In a world drowning in contradictions, Jessica Daniels is struggling to make sense of it all. Her long-dead father is universally reviled for having invented Reanimation technology, yet the very beings he helped create are being increasingly accepted by an increasingly repressed society, which, in turn, is becoming more and more dependent upon the dead — for security, for work, and now for entertainment. As Jessica — a computer gamer and hacker herself — approaches her eighteenth birthday, all she wants is to escape her family’s dark past. So why does she keep rushing headlong into it? EPISODE 1: Deep Into The Game A reckless suggestion leads Jessie and her friends onto Long Island for an end-of-the-summer adventure, hoping simply to catch an unlikely glimpse of the infected victims of a decades-old outbreak. But if they think breaking in was easy, they’ll soon discover that getting back out is a killer. Someone — or something — doesn’t want them to leave. Not alive, anyway. EPISODE TWO: Failsafe Jessie and Kelly clash after a member of their group gets stranded among the Infected Undead, prompting Kelly to make a rash decision which will ultimately deliver them all into the hands of those who would turn them into mindless players in The Game. Five hackers. One game. Ten thousand Undead. Deep Into the Game and Failsafe are the first two books in the hi-tech, dystopian thriller series GAMELAND. Structured along the lines of television’s The Walking Dead and Law and Order, the nearly 400,000-word series consists of eight individual episodes, first published monthly between May and December 2012. All are available digitally in single and multi-episode packages, as well as in an omnibus edition. Also available in print.

** $.99 for a limited time — 344 pages! ** I never intended to pick up a naked hitchhiker wearing nothing but a guitar. A guitar. Really. I don’t collect guys like that (don’t ask what kind of guys I do collect), but when you spot a blonde, tanned, sculpted man with a gorgeous smile and his thumb poking up and practically begging you to stop – you stop. And I definitely never thought I’d be staring into the bright blue eyes of Trevor Connor, the lead singer for Random Acts of Crazy, an indie rock star I followed like the slobbering fileshare fangirl I am. How he came to be nude and lost six hundred miles from home is quite the tale, but how we fell in love is even more unreal. Because someone like Trevor Connor, headed to Harvard Law next year, isn’t supposed to want someone like me, a rural Ohio chick majoring in Boredom at Convenience Store University who is all curves and frizzy blonde hair and manners so unpolished they have sharp edges that make you bleed. But he did. When his best friend, Joe Ross, the bass player for Random Acts of Crazy and a man who makes Calvin Klein models look like Shrek, drove eleven hours through the night to rescue him, though, it got real complicated. It’s one thing to like two different guys and be torn. What do you do, though, when maybe – just maybe – you don’t have to choose? As my Aunt Josie says sometimes, “It’s always complicated.” * * * Random Acts of Crazy is a standalone, full-length novel featuring Darla Jo(sephine) Jennings, the 22-year-old niece of Josie Mendham from the Her Two Billionaires series. It has, like many New Adult novels, an exploration of sexuality for the three main characters, doesn’t shy away from mature content, and Darla has a sailor’s mouth.Romance

What kind of mother walks away from her family? This is the question many readers asked after finishing Pieces of You, Book One of The Betrayed Trilogy. They wanted to know the real story behind the disappearance of Evie Burnes. What’s Left of Her offers an intimate glimpse into Evie Burnes’s life before her disappearance—and after. Here’s a snippet from What’s Left of Her: It is the painting that makes her come alive; she lives inside of it, right in the core of the oil: red, purple, yellow, blue, black, breathing its heavy scent, smearing the slickness of it on her fingers, her shirt, her face. She’s tried to hide from it for years, denying the pull, instead forcing herself into layer upon layer of daily existence that is too tight, too restrictive, too foreign. But lately, the stretches of midnight to early morning hours in the attic have increased, the need to be up there, hidden away, free, has grown into a wild, nameless yearning that calls to her, seducing her soul with its promises. She knows who she is, who she has always been, despite years and miles, a husband and two children. It all comes down to honesty. But what she does not know, and what she fears most, is acknowledging what she is not. Because that will change her life forever. The Betrayed Trilogy: Pieces of You, Book One Secrets of You, Book Two What’s Left of Her, a novella, Book Three Note: While Pieces of You and Secrets of You are romances, What’s Left of Her is not.
