Catch up on the Kelsey Porter Thriller Series. Book #1, Just $0.99 until 10/31/18!

Hi, everyone! My five-year journey is finally coming to an end. I am officially launching Book #5 in the Kelsey Porter thriller series on October 1, 2018. This book will sum up everything that has happened in the series thus far and answer all those questions everyone has been asking over the past four novels. I think fans of the series will love it and be really satisfied with the ending.

I spoke a few times about why I started this series. It was because I wanted to write a book that I thought my favorite authors, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, would personally love. I wanted it to be smart and thoughtful and require a lot of research. I actually got up the nerve to ask one of them if they’d like to read THE HUNT FOR XANADU and Douglas told me that this was right up his alley. He gave me a glowing review for THE HUNT FOR XANADU below and you can read it under editorial reviews on Amazon here.

The Hunt for Xanadu by Elyse Salpeter is a remarkable novel, a fascinating and fantastical journey in time and space, and one of the most gripping novels I’ve read in a long time. It flies along at the pace of a thriller, with plenty of murder and mayhem along the way. But behind the thrill-ride is a spiritual story, an archetypal tale of mystery and darkness, riddled with fascinating and esoteric concepts in Tibetan Buddhism. Vivid characters, a truly appealing protagonist, unexpected twists, and crisp writing complete this unforgettable book. I can’t wait to read the next one in the series!

–Douglas Preston, #1 best selling author and co-creator, with Lincoln Child, of the Pendergast series

Book #5 in the Kelsey Porter thriller series

The cover for Book #5, THE SEARCH FOR STARLIGHT, came out great. In fact, I went ahead with my cover artist and we changed all the covers to have more of a thriller feel. Love to hear what you think of the entire series now.

For all those folks that want to catch up on the series… I’m going to drop the price of THE HUNT FOR XANADU to 99 cents until the end of October to give everyone a chance to catch up on the series. You can purchase it here.

As always, if you’re able to leave a review, I’d appreciate it so much. I hope you enjoy reading this series as much as I loved writing it!

Launching a Sequel

Book #1 & #2 in my Deaf Thriller Series

Book #1 & #2 in my Deaf Thriller Series

I’ve heard in the industry that it is very difficult launching a sequel. For starters, unless it’s a standalone, readers need to read the first book in the series to develop a relationship with the story and the characters. So, the question is, how do you launch a sequel successfully?

Answer? Promotion and creativity. I’m launching Book #2 in my YA thriller series on August 30th. The novel is called FLYING TO THE FIRE and is the sequel to FLYING TO THE LIGHT. The books are about a deaf boy who knows about the afterlife and now people are after him for the answer.

Until August 14th, I’m offering the kindle version of Book #1 for only 99 cents (and £0.77 in the UK). That’s right, today, tomorrow and Thursday, FLYING TO THE LIGHT is just 99 cents for your kindle. I figure this way new readers can grab a copy and have the opportunity to read it before book #2 comes out (and possibly even get a few more reviews in as well).

In addition, I’m advertising on ENT, The Fussy Librarian, hopefully Pixel of Ink if they pick it up, and will promote on all the FB 99 cent sites, Google+ and Twitter. FLYING TO THE LIGHT has been out for a bit and has sold pretty well. I’m hoping with a series in place that it will continue to develop a nice audience. I’m about to start on Book #3 soon and it’s tentatively titled FLYING HOME.

On August 30th, I’ve got 9 – 10 bloggers promoting the book and doing a special book launch event on FB where I’ll be giving away prizes. I’ll have signed copies of FLYING TO THE FIRE and FLYING TO THE LIGHT, a voucher from a deaf retailer, Itunes cards, etc… This will be the first time I’m doing one of these all by myself, so we’ll see how it goes. I have over 100 people coming so far, so I’m very excited. Please feel free to join the online event here to win some fun prizes. No pressure to buy, just joining and participating would be great, too. https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/669594469785008/

If you’d like to purchase FLYING TO THE LIGHT for just 99 cents, please do so here:

It’s at this price until August 14th and then will go back up to $2.99.

If anyone would care to do a write-up, interview or promotion on their own blogs because they’re looking for content on August 30th or anytime the week after, please feel free to let me know and I’ll provide anything you need.

Thanks so much and happy reading!

THE RUBY AMULET is now Available on Amazon

The Ruby AmuletI know it’s not Monday, but I have great news! I was able to launch THE RUBY AMULET nearly three weeks early. Maybe this should be a blog post about patience, since I had scheduled the release for November 25th, but the edits were done, the cover was completed, the upload went seamlessly, so… why wait? So without further ado, if you’ve had the chance to read THE WORLD OF KAROV, Book #1 in the series, please feel free to check out THE RUBY AMULET, Book #2 in the Children of Demilee series.

Now, I do quite a recap in Book #2 for folks who haven’t read Book #1, so you shouldn’t get lost, but, I’m a purist. I’m one who always believes in reading a series in the order presented, but either way, you should be fine.
