New Book!! IDENTITY - "A twisty space yarn with lovable anti-heroes, awesome aliens, and a kick-ass heroine..."

First, I want to say congrats to author Christa Yelich-Koth on bringing her fantastic space opera to a conclusion. I know what it feels like to be done with a story, sad but exciting. This is a great read! Check it out :)

IDENTITY is the sequel and conclusion to the story of Daith Tocc by author Christa Yelich-Koth.

Daith has discovered some incredible things about herself: she is smart, charming, and has psionic powers that allow her to sense emotions, melt physical objects, even heal or injure with a thought. The problem is, she doesn't have any memory of who she used to be.

Regardless, Daith made a choice between leaving the ship to learn who she is or staying aboard to help the crew’s mission. But someone from her past knows the truth about her, and if he finds her, that truth could shatter her decision–and leave everyone vulnerable to her powers.


Review snippets: 

"I found myself holding my breath at times..." -- 5-star Goodreads review

"A twisty space yarn with lovable anti-heroes, awesome aliens, and a kick-ass heroine..." -- Kat Ross, author of the Fourth Element series

My New Children's Book - THE LONELIEST WHALE

Exciting news! I'm publishing my first children's board book. It's called THE LONELIEST WHALE, and it was inspired by a true BBC story about a whale who sings at a level no other whale can hear. It combs the ocean, calling out for companionship that never comes.

My illustrator (and long-time friend) Dorene Uhrich, is working on the initial sketches, and guess what? I have a sneak peek for you!

We're trying to decide on the best font. Of course we have our favorite, but which do you like better?

Thanks for your input. Read the true BBC story here!

Isn't this one of the most beautiful covers you've ever seen?!! Congrats to Acorn author, Lele Iturrioz, on the reveal of her debut novel out on December 15, 2016.

Most teenage girls know their name, where they came from, who they are. Not G, a beautiful redhead with unusual markings on her wrist. She gets her name from a silver locket she keeps around her neck, unaware the engraved letter “G” on its front holds the secret to her past.

G’s life before the age of six has been a mystery to her. Each night for the last twelve years she’s been haunted by the same nightmare—a war. Horrendous beasts, warriors able to wield the four elements, and a boy who saves her by means of blue fire taunt her memory. But on her eighteenth birthday, G’s life begins to unravel. When she meets her new Chemistry professor, a man with an uncanny resemblance to the boy who saves her, she knows there must be more to her dreams.

To learn the truth is a dark and dangerous road. One G will be forced to take. Claiming her place as Mother Nature will bring death to her door. But G's not afraid of dying. Some things are worth dying for.
