Countdown: It’s almost STAINED release day! (Oct 1)

It’s almost STAINED release day! STAINED comes out Oct 1st in the US and Canada (and Jan 1st in the UK). In STAINED, Sarah is abducted, and she must find a way to rescue herself.

For every person who buys STAINED now or in the first month it’s out (Oct 1-Oct 31), I will send you an ebook copy of either SCARS or Parallel Visions (your choice), and you’ll be entered it win a $25 gift card to any online bookstore of your choice. Just email me your receipt (and let me know which ebook you want).


I’m so excited! I believe STAINED will help many readers the way SCARS did, while gripping them–and I’ve heard from a lot of reviewers who say they can’t put STAINED down once they pick it up. I love that! (beaming) In STAINED, Sarah deals with body image issues, bullying, rape, and abduction, and she must rely on her own emotional strength to save herself. She is a strong girl character–which I think we need to see more of–and there’s a lot of emotional truth in this book. Like I did with SCARS, I drew on my own trauma experience to write STAINED.

Are you looking forward to STAINED? I hope so!
