A New TMDBook Is Only One Day Away!

Tuesday is just HOURS away, which means the release of ‘Finding Hope’ is almost here! Squeeee! I hope y’all are as excited as I am and can’t wait to get your hands on the eBook and start reading the third installment of the Find Me series! If you’ve NO idea what this series is about (and if so…GASP…lol) then here is a quick recap:


I HOPE YOU FIND ME

(FREE eBook on Amazon, Nook, Smashwords)

IHYFM CoverLife for Riley ends when her young children die in her arms…victims of a global viral outbreak that claims the lives of everyone she’s ever known. Left to fend for herself with only a dog as her companion, she sets out on a journey to find others, leaving notes everywhere she goes…hoping that one day someone will come looking for her. When Riley meets the handsome yet mysterious Connor on the streets of Downtown San Diego, they form a bond unlike either has experienced before. When the things that go bump in the night turn out to be more than nightmares, the trio sets off for the mountains in search of an isolated resort where they can hunker down, away from the ominous shadows of the dead city streets. The peace and tranquility of the woods isn’t enough to keep the darkness away for long though and soon Riley and Connor are forced to accept that the World and the few people left alive in it will never be the same. The shadows of their past may haunt them forever…threatening to destroy what little dreams they have left of a future unless they fight to stay in the light and never lose their hope.


LOST and FOUND

(#2, Available on Amazon and Nook)

LFShe survived Earth’s worst global pandemic. In the city she learned how to cope with the roaming dead. Tucked away in the mountains she struck down the living who tried to kill her. Now Riley fights a new battle – the one within herself. Wracked with survivor’s guilt and an almost crazed sense of duty that takes her out of the solitude of the Southern California mountains and into the heart of Orange County, she makes a series of choices that can lead to the destruction of everything she’s managed to save.

In the end, will it all be worth it? What will be lost? What will be found? And which questions will be left unanswered?


FINDING HOPE

(#3, Available April 28th on Amazon and Nook)

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00075]Riley’s journey continues in the third installment of the Find Me series. With the promise of a better life on the horizon, she reluctantly leaves the Laguna Mountains of Southern California behind for the good of her group. But not everyone makes the trip. During her struggle to come to terms with the choices she’s made in the past, Riley turns to her inner circle for hope. But finding it will be more difficult than she ever imagined when her choices come back to haunt her. She’s lost her family. She’s lost friends. She’s lost love. And now in Finding Hope, Riley just might lose herself. As some questions are answered, others are created.

Who will survive? And will hope be found?


Whether you are Team Riley, Team Zoey, Team Connor or Team Drake, you’ll find something to love in the third book. There will be surprises, love, death, answers and of course, more questions. Don’t miss out on Riley’s journey, PRE-ORDER Finding Hope today or grab up your copy any time after Tuesday, the 28th of April!

eBook Pirating…Gone Mad?

*clears throat…taps mic* Do I have the floor? Alrighty then. Let’s start, shall we?

This post is a direct result of the moronic move on behalf of the git that decided to upload ‘Lost and Found’ to a questionable eBook file sharing site (no, this title is not free to share in such a way ANYWHERE online) and then didn’t have the brains to get my author name correct, though my name is clearly on the book cover image they listed, rather, they posted ‘Lee Child’ as the author, and ‘Transworld’ as the publisher. Let’s all take a nice long giggle at that, before I move on…ready? No? Still laughing? Okay…calm yourself now. This really is a serious matter. *shoves chocolate in mouth*

LF DMCA

Surprise!! I am not Lee Child (say whaaaat??), and I’ve no doubt he knows nothing of my existence though I’m sure he’s a lovely guy. But ‘Lost and Found’, the second book of the Find Me series, is most definitely mine. Um, I know this, because I wrote it, not Lee Child. And Transworld – um, that’s another nope. From what I can gather, it is a UK based publishing division of Random House. They probably haven’t heard of me either. *GASP* I published this book myself. *DOUBLE GASP* Book pirates – just a note – If you are going to pass off an eBook file to someone else, without the author’s consent, can you at least get their name and publishing info right on the page? I mean, it’s the least you can do. You’ve gone through the effort to upload the file or image already. Might as well go alllll the way.

It seems that I’m getting more and more email alerts about my files ending up all OVER the internet. eBook pirating has gone mad, people, MAD. I am all for sharing my freebies, loves. That’s why they are free. I want you to tell your friends and them to tell their family…however, I only want my titles listed on sites I deem appropriate for distribution. This isn’t only for my protection, but yours, as well. I don’t want someone downloading what they think is a free file of one of my books from some random site run from someone’s basement , then uploading a virus to their computer. Or worse, a phishing scam. Not to mention the fact that I have two free books – no one has to ‘steal’ from me. And that’s what file sharing for ‘Lost and Found’ would be. It’s not free on Amazon or B&N. So unless you got a copy from me directly, or those two places, you could be getting the file from somewhere shady. Just, you know, FYI.

Please be respectful to the people who write, format, design, edit, and publish books. We WANT them to be read, but we also have bills to pay, just like everyone else, and we also have a reputation to build in the writing world. Be part of the solution, not the problem, by getting your eBooks from reputable places. Support your favorite authors by legitimately buying their books, or borrowing them from valid lending programs (Amazon’s KU program, for example). My books are not in each of these programs, but there are many others which are. And if you are a rabid fan of mine (which, I don’t know, I guess could happen…*cue crickets singing along to the Misery soundtrack*) and truly can’t afford to continue on with one of my series after reading the first for free, send me a PM and I’d love to shoot you over a book or two. Why? Because I want you to read them. I know I already said that, but it’s true. It really is.

I love writing and sharing my writing with you. Honestly, I do. Which is why I don’t bash in my computer and throw in the towel when I find things like this online – however – with that being said, it still bothers me to see that someone, anyone, took the time to share a file that didn’t belong to them, online in a place it shouldn’t be. It’s about respect, lovely people. Respect. Please treat your eBook files with the respect the authors deserve, so they continue to publish more works for you to read. Or you know, buy a library card, I guess?

Much love to those who legally download books. I appreciate you. I want to hug you. Kiss you, even. Together, united, we can stand up and support the ever evolving digital world of books! Because in the end, we all love to read.

Now, I’m off to shove more chocolate in my mouth (don’t judge, it’s just been one of those days), while writing more DMCA notices (!@#$%^&*), while doing laundry and packing the kids up for an errand. *double winky face*

Happy Hump Day!
