Today marks the official launch of my latest novel: A Wild Epidemic of Magic from UnWrecked Press!

This is a novel I’ve wanted to write for years, but never had the time. I also think I needed to let it percolate a while in the back of my mind, until I had it right.

This time, I believe I’ve gotten it right.

I’m really excited about sharing this book with the world. It’s the next book in my “Contagious Magic” series, the first sequel to A Sudden Outbreak of Magic. It’s a lot of fun — magic, ancient Sorcerers, secret histories, road trips, and even a little romance here and there.

I think of these Contagious Magic books as “all ages” books — there’s some magic-related violence, but no f-bombs, sex, or other R-rated material: a PG rating, I’d say.

Watch for the next book in the series, A Lasting Cure for Magic, coming in late 2012!

Here’s the synopsis:

Picking up two months after the explosive and unexpected ending to A Sudden Outbreak of Magic, this book finds Jeroan at Dr. Azure’s mysterious training Center, while Kelley is stuck in Dubuque, unable to leave her hotel room without a chaperone.

Jeroan’s having a ball learning all about magic, despite being far from home and cut off from his family. Meanwhile, Kelley is miserable and having trouble remembering things.

It’s all part of the epidemic of magic that began when the twins were “infected” with magic two months ago. And they’re learning that something—or someone—has been warping magic, causing some seriously nasty side effects as a result.

When people they care about start disappearing, and people they didn’t think they should care about—like Dr. Azure—get attacked by rogue magic-users, Jeroan and Kelley have to act, before this growing epidemic of magic turns deadly.

Enjoy, and thanks for reading!
