    I just finished reading Playing with Darkness and I loved it! I get such a kick out of the Kerbasi scenes and Mel’s clever “torture” tactics. I cannot wait for Darkness Clashes to release. Thank you so much for my free copy of the novella.

      I know how hard it can be to wait, Jen, but I’m glad you took a chance and started the series. I’ll work as hard as I can to get them out quickly!

    WooHoo! I picked up Darkness Shatters last night, and wish I could call in sick; however, being the dedicated teacher that I am, I will go in and just have to be content to sneak a few pages in here and there throughout the day!

      Hope you enjoy the novel, Kathie. Back when I was in the army I used to read on my lunch breaks or whenever else I could sneak a few pages in during the day. There is a certain art to it, but it can be done!

    I just wanted to say THANK YOU!
    A week ago I stumbled across the first book in the series of The Sensor series which strangely made me ecstatic that I did not read the books before. Therefore, this means that now, I get to read them all in one go without the agonizing wait for the next installment in the series. I am already reading the 3rd book without skipping anything in between. 😉
    Thank you again for such enticing and unique story. I look forward reading more and more of your books.

      Glad you are enjoying the series, Janna. Sounds like you’re moving through the books quickly. There’s just one novel left that won’t be out until October, but there will be spin-off novels after that with some of the side characters. Hope you continue to enjoy the story!

    Brilliant series, Darkness Shatters had a cliff hanger ending that has left me really looking forward to October.
