New audiobook version of a paranormal mystery and romance!

I can finally share the news about the latest audiobook from UnWrecked Press — the audio version of my novel Heart’s Revenge!

Our narrator, Julie Sears of SearsVoices, did a fantastic job telling the story of Ella and her divemaster Mitch on the tiny island of Ocracoke, where they find ancient mysteries, dead pirates, surly tourists, and even… love.

Here’s the “back-cover copy” for this audiobook:

A haunted romance. An unsolved mystery. And a centuries-old curse at the heart of it all.

Heart's Revenge audiobookOff the rough coast of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, Ella Simon tracks down one manthe infamous pirate Blackbeard. She must identify a shipwreck off the coast of the island, but she and her divemaster Mitch Thompson discover much more than that.

They just have to stay alive long enough to solve the mystery of a young girl’s killer before the ghosts of dead pirates take them down to the bottom of the ocean, forever.

A haunted romance, a lovestruck mystery, and a pirate-filled adventure.

The audio version of Heart’s Revenge is available from Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.

ALSO: For a short time, we’re making the ebook version of Heart’s Revenge available for over half off its usually price. Just $2.99!

This Past Month: November 2012

I read somewhere yesterday that when it comes to raising kids, “the days are long, but the years are fast.” It’s also true for my life right now, with two kids (5 and almost 8 years old already!), a wife, a full-time job, and my “other job” as a writer slash publisher slash everything else.

So I wanted to stop at the end of each month and look back. So here’s my first “This Past Month” post, for November 2012.

The Current Novel

First off, it’s been a really good month for getting work done on my current novel, A Lasting Cure for Magic. I keep a spreadsheet of my writing where I track the time of day I wrote, how many words and pages, and what I worked on that day. It’s great to look back on that spreadsheet for each month to see when I was most productive.

A Sudden Outbreak of Magic (audio version)

Hey folks — just wanted to see if anyone out there is interested in listening to the audiobook version of my book A Sudden Outbreak of Magic. For free.

New Audiobook: A Sudden Outbreak of Magic

A Sudden Outbreak of Magic (audio version)

In what will be the first of hopefully many new audio versions of my novels and stories, I’m happy to announce that my all-ages contemporary fantasy novel A Sudden Outbreak of Magic is now an audiobook!

You can find the audiobook at Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.

The novel is narrated by Chicago-based actress Alyson Grauer. She did a fantastic job with all the wild action in the book, as well as giving each character a specific voice. When I first heard how she read Maria Haze’s chapters, for instance, I got chills –she nailed it.

New Contagious Magic chapters, new Contagious Magic sounds

2012 has turned in the Year of Contagious Magic. Who knew?

Work has been progressing slowly but steadily here, as I get back into the swing of the 3rd novel in the CM series. I’ve gotten the opening nailed down, and just last Friday finished up chapter three. Woo!

In the spirit of the Free Fiction page, where I offer some free short stories and excerpts from various novels, you can now read Chapter 3 in its entirety.

It may not make a LOT of sense if you haven’t read the first 2 books, but I try to get folks up to speed quickly. This happens mostly in chapter 1, which is available along with the prologue and chapter 2 from the A Lasting Cure for Magic main page.
