How I Got Sunburned Listening to Fire Country

Download on Audible                      Download on Amazon
So here's the thing...I'm not a big audiobook person. So when almost two years ago Podium Publishing approached my agent with an offer to buy the audio rights to the entire Dwellers/Country Sagas, I was skeptical. Podium, however, made us an offer we couldn't refuse, lined up the most amazing award-winning narrators from the industry, and produced the first three books in The Dwellers Saga (The Moon Dwellers, The Star Dwellers, The Sun Dwellers).
And yet I still couldn't bring myself to listen to more than a few pages of the books. Something about hearing my own words spoken aloud freaked me out!
Fast forward a year. The Moon Dwellers, narrated by Julia Whelan and Will Damron WINS an award from The Society of Voice Arts. Yeah, crazy, that's a pic of the trophy I got, and me acting a little excited. (first award ever, woot!)
Anyway...now Podium has just released the latest book in the series, which can be listened to either before or after The Dwellers Saga, doesn't matter what order. And guess what? I actually GOT SUNBURNED listening to this book at the beach because I couldn't get enough of it. Why? Not because I think I'm the best writer in the world or anything, but because my narrator, Khristine Hvam, who has narrated other bestselling books like Daughter of Smoke and Bone, was INCREDIBLE as the voice of Siena. She didn't just narrate the character, she BECAME her.
I truly believe this is a fantastic audiobook and I hope you enjoy listening to it. NOTE: even if you have never listened to an audiobook, you can get this book for FREE on Audible by signing up for a trial. Just sayin', what do you have to lose?

HAPPY LISTENING, my friends!

Strings Release Day!

Sometimes the strings that tie us down are the same strings that set us free...

"Strings is a wonderful retelling of the Pinocchio story and a heartfelt coming-of-age tale.  I was pulled in by young Pia's determination to free herself and her father, and I simply couldn't put this book down." –Rysa Walker, bestselling author of TIMEBOUND

After over a year without publishing a book, I'm so pleased to release STRINGS, my new dark YA SciFi Pinocchio retelling! I was exceptionally honored and fortunate to have the amazing bestseller, Rysa Walker, read and blurb STRINGS; and she loved it so much that she decided to partner with me and our incredible narrator, Kate Rudd, to produce the audiobook.

Sixteen-year-old Pia has always lived in a mysterious facility where mechanical strings control her existence. She plays apprentice to her father, Gio, in performing nanotech designs for the Company, and she soon suspects there are diabolical human forces behind the manufactured reality of her world. 

Though her childhood memories and the origins of the strings remain strangely elusive, she begins to find solace with the introduction of two unlikely friends: daring, irrational Sofia, and calm, tender Marco. 

As the truths of the past and present unravel together, Pia must find a way to free herself from her strings and escape the facility before facing the wrath of the unstable head of security, Mr. Davis. But to gain her freedom, she must navigate the dangers posed by Davis and by her suspicious new friends to find the real identity of the puppeteer. 

If Pia can succeed in revealing the secrets of the Company, she may very well find the independence she so desperately seeks. But in her controlled world nothing is as it seems, and the closer she gets to the truth, the graver the consequences.
