Launch Party Co-Hosts Introduced!

If you missed the announcement for The Shadow Guard's Release and Launch Party, you can find it here.

Release day for the much-anticipated final book in the Aerenden series is TOMORROW, March 27, but this day isn't all about me, or Nick, Caide, and Meaghan. It's about having a good time with fellow readers, enjoying each other's company, and making new friends.

Some of the new friends I'd like to introduce you to are fellow authors. Each one will be co-hosting the party for an hour, introducing you to their writing, and giving away (yet even more) prizes. Be sure to check them out at the times below. All times are Eastern.

The Shadow Guard is almost here!

The Shadow Guard, the final book in the Aerenden series, drops March 27. THIS MONTH! I am beyond excited and celebrating in a big way, hosting a party right up until release day and all day on the 27th.

Join the Launch Party on Facebook here to win prizes, meet new authors, and have fun with fellow readers. Prize giveaways take place all month long!

Amazon also has the kindle version of The Shadow Guard available for pre-order TODAY here. Pick up your copy now and it will be auto-delivered to your kindle on launch day.

I can't wait to share the final leg of this journey with you. Releasing this last book is bittersweet. I hate to say good-bye to my characters, but the adventure has been, well, epic :). I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I did.
