A Confession

Well, here it is- a confession of sorts.

I've been writing a book in secret.

No, it's not Book Four of The Obscured, though that will be next on my list of things to work on. In fact it's not set in one of my worlds at all, but one created by Nicholas Sansbury Smith. If you read Post-Apocalyptic books, you probably already know Nick's name. He's the USA best-selling author of multiple series, including Orbs, Hell Divers, Trackers, and the tremendously popular Extinction Cycle. Well Nick very graciously asked me to be a part of the Extinction Cycle series by way of Kindle Worlds, and I very wisely accepted. Kindle Worlds, if you didn't know, is a platform Amazon started a few years ago where authors can write in each properties.

My book is called Extinction: Isolation, and it takes place during the events of Extinction Horizon, the first book in Nick's series. It follows the story of Will and Stanley Sharpe, two brothers on opposite sides of the law, and their struggle to stay alive in the Pennsylvania wilderness as they make their back to Will's family in Washington D.C. I had a great time taking on this challenge, and as far as the release date, the book drops...oh, about five hours ago.

That's right- it's already out. I just Beyonce'd your ass.

This is a Kindle exclusive, ebook only, which is just the deal with Kindle Worlds. As you might know, you don't need a Kindle to read a Kindle book, just an Amazon account. You can read it on your phone, your computer, and pretty much anywhere else. I tried my best to create a book that wouldn't require having read the Extinction Cycle first in order to enjoy it, but if you have- and I recommend you do if you like good Science Fiction and Horror- you'll enjoy it that much more. This is easily the biggest thing I've been a part of, and I'm so grateful to Nick that he let me be a part of it.

So that's my confession. I am Beyonce. Enjoy.
