All this week, I’ve been sharing more info about my books as part of the Upgrade my eBook challenge! The premise for the contest is simple: You’ve got one (or all) of my books in eBook on your Nook or Kindle, right? (And if not, Both Double Life and The Island are free downloads across all eBookstores, and you can get a free copy of Empath by signing up for my newsletter.) Simply write a review of any of my books and tell me about it on the form below, and you’ll be entered to win a paperback in that series.
There will be one winner per series. One grand prize winner will be one of the very first lovelies to get their hands on Resurgence, the first Demon Spring book.
This week, I’ve posted more about Razia, Empath, and the Madion War Trilogy. Today, it’s time to talk about my newest baby girl, Lexie!
Lexie came to me in a dream when I was in eighth grade. So if you’re counting (because I’m old), that means she’s been my friend for over half of my life. And unlike Razia, which changed a bit as I grew up, Lexie’s story hasn’t changed all that much. At its heart, it’s a story about a very straight-laced girl who unlocks this whole other side of herself, and has to balance this new reality with the actual reality of being a high school student taking a buttload of classes.
I like to write from an “emotional center” and this one definitely has parallels to my own discoveries of my “magic,” or writing. Like Lexie, I’d doodle in the margins of my notes of chapters and ideas for books, not paying attention in class, all of that. Lexie’s a lot like me in high school, although she’s a bit of a risk-taker, whereas I am a chicken.
What I love most about this book is the mystery that unravels–around Lexie’s relationship with her family, her ancestors, and this mysterious stranger that pops up out of nowhere.
The first two books are out now (took a short hiatus to focus on Demon Spring) and the first book is also available in Audiobook!

What a neat idea for a promotion! I might need to borrow your idea, if you don’t mind.
Of course, I’d need to publish a few more titles and make some of them permafree, just like you did. I love the idea of offering readers an incentive to leave a review.
PS: Lexie sounds relatable! I think we all have a bit of Lexie in us.
You can also use a program like Instafreebie to deliver books for free. Just make sure you give credit if you take the idea 😉
Already using Instafreebie for samples of my novels, and complete short stories for new email subscribers!
Sure, if I run something like you’re doing here, I’d happily give credit where it’s due.
