Resistance Book Blitz, Variant Series FAQ, and a Giveaway!

First thing's first....

Thank you!

Thank you for making Resistance a hit during its first week of sales! I never in a million years expected the book to do this well, especially right at the outset. You guys are amazing. *glomps*

Since the release of Resistance, I've been getting a lot of questions about my plans for the Variant Series and my availability for certain promotions. Because of that, I wanted to go ahead and answer a few of the more common questions here on the blog... Hope this helps!


Is there a release date for Book 3 yet?

Not just yet. I completely jinxed myself with Resistance (Book 2) when I tried to ballpark a release date before I'd finished the first draft. Muses willing, Book 3 will be released much more quickly than the last book, but I'm hesitant to say any more than that. As soon as the completed first draft is with my editor, I'll be ready to set the date! 

How many books will there be in the Variant Series? Are you planning to write any prequels? Spin-offs?

Currently, I'm planning on four books to complete the series, but I won't know for certain until I near the end of writing the fourth book. There's a chance that I won't be able to fit everything that needs to happen into Book 4, and I'll be forced to split it into two books, making it five to complete the series.

As for prequels or spin-offs... Currently, I don't have any plans to expand the series. That's not to say it won't happen—just that it's not currently on the agenda. Maybe after I've had the chance to finish up a few of my other projects, I'll be ready to come back to Alex's world for a few more adventures! :)

I'd like to review your novel(s) for my blog. Can you send me a review copy of Revival/Resistance/both? 

I'd love to work with you! Just send me an e-mail with your information and we'll figure something out. For those of you interested in an interview or guest post—please just send me a request. If I can fit it in, I'd be more than happy to.

RESISTANCE Release Day!!

Hello, everyone!

It's here! It's here! Today's the day—Resistance, the second novel in the Variant Series is now available in ebook form from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords for just $2.99! For those of you looking for the paperback, it will be available on Amazon early next week.



Alexandra Parker might be the most powerful Variant the world has ever seen—but even that won’t get her out of finishing her junior year of high school.  

The challenge of keeping her abilities under wraps during class is daunting enough, but throw one surly, sandy-haired Jumper into the mix, and things can get downright complicated.  

Declan’s new job? Watch over Alex while she’s at school and do everything in his power to keep her from losing control. But as sparks of every kind begin flying between Alex and her new bodyguard, she's left feeling more unstable than ever.  

When avoiding her abilities results in a surprise visit from her parents’ killer, Alex’s worlds collide with a bang that nearly levels Bay View High.  

With her freedom now squarely in the Agency’s crosshairs, Alex will be faced with the fight of her life… and a decision that could forever alter the course of her destiny.


There will be plenty of giveaways over the next few weeks, so be sure to keep an eye on the Jena Leigh website, or follow me on Twitter (@jenaleighbooks) for more details!
