Seeking YA Readers, Group Named, Synopsis for "Rocked", Refreshers & Where's My Chocolate?
|Hey - You, there, yeah - YOU!|
If you love (or know someone who loves) reading young adult, paranormal/supernatural thrillers and urban fantasy, then YOU (or the people you send this to) are very important to me! And that's because I'm searching the planet for young adult readers (anywhere from 12 – 25 years old) to be part of The Chosen Sidekicks. (Okay, okay – stop frowning…ANY age can come along for the ride since I know of 80 year olds who read my books!)
You see, I'm trying my best ever to write the next epic series for the young adult crowd. (I have my Werewolf Series available, but this is another new series.) The idea of The Chosen Sidekicks (or Sidekicks for short maybe?) grew as I typed away on this latest creation. I thought it would be insanely cool to give my readers (my fans) a special group name. To ME – YOU are MY Chosen Sidekick. On a larger scale which would include many people: The Chosen Sidekicks. Make sense?
YOU are an individual who makes a difference to me, who is important, who I care about, who I need to hear feedback from! The stories I write must rip at your emotions and stick to you like glue! I want you to like reading my books...to be shocked, thrilled, break out in a sweat from fear or anticipation wondering what in the world will happen next?!
And when the new book releases, and you read the story, you'll totally understand the concept of The Chosen Sidekicks…why I love the idea of having people who enjoyed my book be part of this group and I love how the meaning behind "chosen" and "sidekick" together become uniquely special.
It will all make sense. I promise.
Just to clarify for newbies what my paranormal thrillers, urban fantasy, young adult novels involve…I write about werewolves, vampires, witches, werecats, Bigfoot, an occasional demon, psychics, and awesome human characters – some good, some evil. But not ALL of them in the same book! Whew! That would give you and me a headache trying to keep track of everyone! In addition, some form of a light romance is written into the story (come on now--ALL books, movies, TV shows have SOME sort of a love story in them!). However, my books are NOT considered romance...just enough to satisfy the girls and the guys can chill and breathe easy that they're not reading a romance novel! Depending on which series, the ages of the main characters are 16 through 30. Most on the younger side.
Some details about this book: Rocked – The Chelsie Valdar Saga – 1. "A modern-day Viking warrior teen, Chelsie Valdar, must find an ancient ancestor's mystical sword before the impending Apocalypse and flee to safety with her brother. Several Bigfoot and an outcast werecat help with the search and offer protection, especially when an enemy is infatuated with Chelsie and wants the sword all for himself…the clock is ticking and time is running out." (The ages of the main characters range from 16-19. Chelsie is 17 years old.)
Can't tell you too much more…yet! It's never a good idea to open the gates to all the little secrets and let everything flood your brains at once. As we get a bit closer to publishing time (approximately mid to end of August), I will drizzle chocolate (that would be the book teasers, excerpts, etc.) on the ice cream (that would be YOU) in just the right amount to make you drool for more until the actual release of the book.
And it's a trilogy so I can have fun
torturing you drizzling
that chocolate again and again (ahhh…cho-co-late…*nom-nom-nom*…) uh-where was I?!…yes…and
I can pull you deeper into Chelsie the Viking chick's life with each of the
three books as Chelsie, family and friends fight for survival against wicked rivals and a devastated earth!
And I will be doing book giveaways (both print and ebook) and let a reader quiz me and lots of other fun stuff! Of course if you are part of The Chosen Sidekicks by following/liking/subscribing to me, then you'll know all the latest secrets, updates and what's happening!

Oh! Nearly forgot *slaps hand to forehead* to remind you about the other series that is published. So far, two books in that series are available with more to come. Unknown Touch-Werewolf Series-Book 1 and Unknown Scent-Werewolf Series-Book 2. Again, if reading off site (which ALL of this info is on my website)…to get your blood boiling, here's the synopsis for Book 1: "Kara McBride is abducted by a secret group of diversely skilled humans called The Liaison. They discovered her psychic power is able to manipulate thought and want her to join their covert operation. Kara's abilities are vital to the success of saving a small group of werewolves from self-destruction. A few rogue werewolves committed crimes against humans, bringing unwanted attention to the area, and risking their hidden existence from society. Kara will attempt to calm their aggression with her psychic ability. During the chaos, a love triangle unexpectedly develops and Kara must make a choice between a human… or a werewolf! Her decision could be life-altering for her and others as she delves into the unknown."
