It's been six months since the publication of my debut novel, GAIA HUNTED, and the experience has been a dream come true. My deepest thanks to everyone who read the novel. Your praise and support has been absolutely amazing!
It's been a joy to meet readers at conferences and book fairs as well to talk about my writing on television, Youtube and blogs.
Speaking on a great panel at the Providence Book Festival with fellow authors Joanna Schaffhausen and Tonya D. Price (moderated by Maureen Walsh).
But the big news I want to share is that the audiobook for GAIA HUNTED has just been released.
With the help of the talented voice actor Frongi, we have brought to life the characters of Mattie's world. Listening to the novel is a whole new experience, and I'm incredibly proud of what we made. I hope you take a chance to check it out. You can listen to an excerpt or find the entire audiobook on Audible, iTunes and Amazon.
If you've read the book, please let me know what you thought. You can email me and/or post a review on Amazon and Goodreads.
I'm also going to be speaking on panels at the Salem Literary Festival and the New England Crime Bake writer's conference. It would be great to see you there.
Many thanks and keep reading!
My interview with Tell Me About Your Damn Book just dropped. Watch to learn about hitchhiking around Hawaii and my favorite curse word.
A month ago, I was honored to be interviewed on Books and the World--the longest running cable television show dedicated to writing and books. Thank you to the Cape Cod Writers Center for hosting me. Check out the interview below!
With palpable tension and unbridled excitement, my first novel, GAIA HUNTED has been released into the world.
If you're looking for your next book to read, I'd be honored if you were to pick up a copy.
Everyone is welcome to the GAIA HUNTED launch party on January 26th at 2pm at O'Neills Pub in Salem. There will be a book giveaway as well light hors d'oeuvres. Please reply to the evite or Facebook event if you're able to come.
I truly hope you enjoy reading Mattie's story. If you did, please share it with others either through social media or word of mouth. Books live and die by reviews, so if you can post one on Amazon or Goodreads it would make a real difference.
Lastly, for the past few months, I've been working with an incredibly talented voice actor, Emily Frongillo, to produce the audiobook of GAIA HUNTED. Expect to hear about its release in the near future.
If you want to keep posted of all my wild writing adventures, you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Goodreads. I always love hearing from readers, and especially your reactions to GAIA HUNTED.
Thank you to all who have provided kind words of support, and happy reading!
*GAIA HUNTED is the story of Mattie Fisher, a middle school teacher who is told by a Salem psychic that she's a reincarnated goddess. What Mattie doesn't realize is that there is a god of war hunting her – forcing her to race from the deity-filled streets of New York to sacred Hindu temples to the lawless Amazon. If Mattie is to survive and restore balance to the world, she must accept the powers buried within her, which could either bring her ultimate wisdom or complete madness.
After several years of daydreaming, staring at words on a screen, innumerable cups of coffee, talking to myself, and draft-after-unfinished draft, I'm proud to announce that my first novel, GAIA HUNTED, will be released on January 22nd 2019!
Nothing gives me greater excitement (and apprehension) than the idea of you reading it, and because I hope you may have an inkling of curiosity as well, I want to give you the first look at the opening chapters.
Have I sparked your interest? Would you like to read a little more? Come down the road of temptation. Click here for a preview of the first few chapters of GAIA HUNTED.
For those who believe waiting is insufferable and desire instant gratification, the e-book is available for pre-sale on Amazon. The print book will be available on January 22, 2019.
Lastly, every new novel needs a party. I'm throwing a launch party—complete with acts of courage and feats of strength—in Salem on Saturday January 26th at 2pm at O'Neills Pub. Check out the evite here. Hope to see you there!
