Goodreads Giveaway! Win a signed print copy of AGAINST THE GAME!

Are you on Goodreads? Enter to win a signed print copy of Against the Game at the link below!…ainst-the-game


Eric Teague is moments away from making history. Thanks to him, the world of gaming is about to experience technology like it has never seen before. When his new establishment, Against the Game, opens, playing video games will be a thing of the past.

At Against the Game, players experience the game as if it is real in a virtual reality. There is no TV, no console with wires and controllers. The game feels absolutely real. Kids get so much more than puppeteering cartoonish characters through a game of basketball. No matter the person’s health or physical ability, they will be the characters in a world without limits and they will experience what it is really like to compete as a pro ball player.

During test trials, kids called Against the Game “amazing,” “fantastic,” and “miraculous.” One kid declared it was the best experience of his life. Indeed, everyone knew it was going to be something big enough to alter the whole gaming industry. For Eric, it meant a long awaited dream come true.

But, all too soon, reality breaks into Eric’s moment when something goes terribly wrong. He and his best friend Lacey get trapped in the virtual reality of the supercomputer behind his establishment. It is definitely no longer just a game. The danger is real. The consequences are real. And, Eric and Lacey’s fight for survival is more than real.

To live, they must win, and to win, they must overcome the biggest challenge of all: to trust and to love.

They can’t win. The perpetrator is using a marvel in the medical field known as techlepathy, a combination of technology and telepathy to produce a telepathic result. He’s reading their minds. How can they possibly get away when he knows their every move?

Chris Chambers is a private investigator with great instincts and a shady past. She works with a skilled team on cases that most P.I.’s won’t touch. She’s hardened to life, hardened to people and as tough as the military trained her to be.

Her team’s newest case is a construction worker by the name of Aidan Wolfe. Aidan is hardheaded and successful, a man with no friends and a long list of enemies. Someone is trying to kill him, someone with extraordinary gifts.

The investigative team and Aidan will be confronted with their worst enemies—themselves. They are cursed to face their own thoughts, inner fears, prejudices, and every private feeling or emotion they have as this man toys with their minds and hearts.

Can they survive? By the end, will they want to?

Blogfest 2012 is here! Come win some prizes!

Hello friends! Welcome to Blogfest 2012! This year has been really busy for me. How about you? So, I’m making this Blogfest’s contest super, super easy. Are you ready?


Would you like to win a signed copy of my latest release, Accelerating Circumstances?

Okay, here’s all you have to do. Each chapter of Accelerating Circumstances opens with a quote to hint at some of the meaning of the story ahead. I’ve picked out five of those quotes below. All you have to do is find out who said each quote and send it to me in an email to So, what do you think? Is that simple enough? Does it sound fun?

1)  “We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.”


2)  “The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.”


3)  “Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”


4)  “Good judgement comes from experience, and often experience comes from bad judgement.”


5)  “Given the choice between the experience of pain and nothing, I would choose pain.”

Okay, so who said each quote? You can do this guys! 🙂 One print book will be mailed out to one lucky winner. Of course, if you visit my blog much, you will know I never have just one winner. The results will be announced on Monday. Good luck!


FYI friends: All email addresses used to send answers will be kept strictly confidential and used for no other purposes than this contest. I do have a newsletter I send out. If you would like to sign up, send a separate email to the address above with NEWSLETTER in the subject line. Thanks so much!

Before the contest ends, I am going to throw in advanced review copies of my upcoming November release, Accelerating Circumstances!


Here’s the blurb:

Jenny is different. She can read people’s minds.

At age seventeen, Jenny Reid was arrested for killing her own mother. There was no evidence that an intruder entered the house. No one believed her as a teenager when she tried to tell them how she felt the killer’s rage saturated within the walls, that she knew the presence of evil had been there. The police thought she was crazy, not psychic.

A conviction was never made in the case due to lack of evidence. Jenny is still the sole suspect, but now, she is doing something about it. She’s on the right side of the law, an FBI agent determined to finally find justice for her mom.

Two men stay by her side—William, her partner, a darkly intense agent with a scary past and Nate, a bad boy with too much charisma to be a good thing. But, no man will keep her from finding out the truth about her mom. The time has come to set things right.

Nothing will stand in her way. She’ll come up close with evil again and face the ultimate choice—kill or be killed in these ACCELERATING CIRCUMSTANCES.

Win a book from Whimsical Publications!

A note from Janet Durbin, founder of Whimsical Publications about a contest for today!:

“Come check out our site. While you’re there, browse through the pages to learn more about our selection of print books and e-books, and about the authors who wrote them. I think you will find they are a fabulous, diverse group of people.

At the end of the day, I will give away one print book to a lucky winner and one ebook to another lucky winner, of their choice. The winners will be announced tonight at 8 p.m.

What do you have to do?

Go to and find the name of the “newest member of the WP family.” It’s not hard to find her with all her cuteness and fuzzy face, sitting in her oversized basket. She sorta resembles the logo for this company (hint, hint).

Once you have the name, come back here ( post that you know the answer but DO NOT POST the name. I’ll ask it later when I pick the winners. That way everyone has to work for the prize, not just a few. If you get the answer wrong, I move on to the next person until I get the correct answer.

Are you up for the challenge? If you are, go to and hunt away. I look forward to seeing who wins. 🙂

Good Luck!!”
