Of Audiobooks and Overdue Updates

The Revival Audiobook!

After seven years—and a lot of waffling on my part—I finally decided it was time to give my Variant Series novels the audiobook treatment!

The first book of the series, Revival, is narrated by the lovely and immensely talented Allyson Voller! Out of everyone I auditioned, Allyson's performance was far and away my favorite. She totally knocked it out of the park! Working with her has been a joy and she did a wonderful job bringing the story to life! I'm so excited for you guys to finally experience Revival in audiobook form!

The audiobook is now available on Amazon, Audible, iTunes, Scribd, and Google Play—and more retailers will be adding it to their catalog soon!

As for the other books in the series, the timeline for their release is a little uncertain for now. Producing an audiobook takes a pretty major upfront investment and, to be honest, I'd like to see how well Revival's audiobook sells before I dive into the second book, Resistance. That's not to say it won't happen soon! I may still decide to pull the trigger and start production ASAP... but I'm currently weighing my options.

Large Print Editions

I received a special request for large print, paperback editions of the novels and I'm pleased to announced that they're finally available for purchase from Amazon! Click the images below if you'd like to have your own large print copies!

As for Book Five...

I'm afraid I still don't have a release date to offer you.

To sum up: Life happened, multiple drafts have been written and discarded, I (still) refuse to give up on the book, and it will eventually be published—but I can't estimate a release date yet.

I could go into much more detail, explaining everything that has transpired over the last two years (and how each instance further delayed the release of the fifth book), but a lot of it is very personal and honestly.... Well, none of it really matters right now. The fact is, the book is still a work-in-progress and I'm not yet ready to ballpark a completion date. My life, my health, and my circumstances are still way too unpredictable.

But it will be finished eventually. And the second Book Five is in edits, I'll be shouting a release date from the rooftops.

All I can say is thank you all, so very much, for being so patient and understanding while I work to wrap up this series. It's been an amazing adventure and I'm so grateful to all of you for taking this journey with me! <3
