It is official. Today Volition Agent came out on Amazon.com. Which means, I officially released my second novel! I am so excited for this novel and I hope you guys are too.
Lexia is an ordinary person, with no special training or unique skills. That is until Lance, her handler, jumps in and takes full control of her every action. With Lance, Lexia is one of the deadliest government agents. Without him, she is a useless civilian who is completely disposable. When one of her missions goes wrong quickly, Lexia finds herself scrambling to escape capture. The agency she works for disavows any knowledge of her existence and leaves her for local authorities to arrest her on murder charges. Lexia must fend for herself if she wants to survive. With no clues, minimal training, and an unlikely ally she searches for answers. The agency wants her dead. Can Lexia stop them? Or are they still in control?
BUY THE BOOK:
US Paperback: (ISBN: 978-0615840802) Regular price is $6.49, but at the time of this post Amazon has it at 10% off!
US Kindle: (ASIN: B00DMCLTQM)Regular price is $1.99, you can borrow free if you are on Amazon Prime
UK Paperback: Coming SOON
I will hope that many of you will run over to Amazon.com and at least spare $1.99 for the Kindle copy. The sudden increase in sales would be great for opening week. And $1.99 is very little compared to other things we spend money on. Besides, you will want to read Lexia’s story over and over again.
It is time to have a big part to celebrate my second novel being published! So for the next week I will be playing all types of games, contests, giveaways, and blog posts.
I am going to play a few social media games over the coming days. The other night I played one on Facebook with trivia questions about the book release. To maximize your chances of winning copies of my book, I suggest you follow me on my four social media outlets: My blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Over the next week there will be different games you can play by following these. I’ll be giving away Kindle Copies of the book for prizes (and maybe other prizes).
Watch for more games on my social media sites!
There is currently a Goodreads Giveaway, and by later this afternoon there will be a Rafflecopter giveaway by tomorrow morning. The best way to find both of these is by visiting my website and clicking on the giveaways tab.
Recently cover artist Kristin Irons and cover mode Joy Anna received their paperback copies of the book and sent me some pictures. Below are pictures of each of us with our copies.
These photos got me thinking. To honor Kristin and Joy’s talents in photography, I thought it would be fun to have a photo contest. So here is what I am doing. You can enter between now and August 2nd. Take your picture with your copy of Volition Agent. Once I have all the pictures, I’ll decide which are the best and they will win some prizes (see below). Of course there are contest rules and directions for entering below. Be creative, have fun, and take some great pictures. I’ll be scoring them on their creativity, and fun. Winners will be announced by August 13th.
