Happy Book Birthday to SCORCHED!


Hey guys!! 

Today's the day!! The day my dragon book SCORCHED is officially out in the world! We actually did a pre-sale at DragonCon (more on DragonCon soon!) but this is the first official day where you can go to Barnes and Noble and all the rest and get your copy! 

The book is available in hardcover and also e-book. If you buy the hardcover, be sure to peel off the dust jacket and take a peek! As you can see from the photo above, Sourcebooks hid a dragon under there! Not just any dragon, mind you, but one you can actually pet!! It has satiny soft scales. That's all I can tell you - you just need to check it out yourselves!! We were showing people at DragonCon this little secret extra and I swear people wanted the book JUST to the pet the dragon! :) haha.

Thank you SO MUCH for all your encouragement and support over the past year with the launch of this new series. It takes a village to write and publish a book and so I'm extremely happy I have the support of family, friends, fellow writers and most of all my awesome publisher SOURCEBOOKS and my agent, Kristin Nelson. Without them this day would not be happening!

Anyway, I won't go on and on. I just hope you enjoy the book and tell all your friends if you do. That is the golden ticket for authors - above all reviews and arc giveaways and pre-sale gifts and all that - the number one reason people buy books is because their friends told them about them. So if you love an author's work (mine or any other authors) TELL PEOPLE! (Just try to avoid spoilers!) 

And yes--Scorched is the part one of a series. I've sold three books to Sourcebooks and they will come out each September for the next couple years. Right now I'm hard at work on Book #2 which is tentatively called "SHATTERED." So there's much more of Emmy and Trinity and Connor and Caleb to come! 

Scorched should be available at most major bookstores. (If they don't have it in stock, ask them to order a copy for you!) If you prefer to order online or want the e-copy, here are some links: 

Amazon Hardcover (on sale right now for only $10.19) 


Barnes and Noble Hardcover (Or you can go to your local store and they should have copies)


WalMart (they're not carrying it in stores, but you can get free shipping to your home) 

Books A Million (I believe they will have it in stores, but also you can order online if you prefer)

IndieBound (if you like to support indie books) 

iTunes (iBooks) (To read on iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone, etc.) 

There are a gazillion more places, but that should get you started!!! Thank you so much!!! I can't wait to hear what you think!!
