Transcendence Released! And Other Errata

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 23, 2015, 6:27 AM

It is my tremendous honor to bring you the conclusion to the Aurora Rising trilogy: TRANSCENDENCE.

- Transcendence is available for purchase in ebook and paperback on Outside the U.S.? This link will take you to the book on your Amazon International site.

- As the paperback is added to more sites, links will be posted here. If you're on Goodreads, the Transcendence page is here.

- Don't have a Kindle? Kindle apps for your tablet or phone (iOS, Android, Windows Phone), PC, Mac and the cloud can be downloaded here: Kindle Apps. If you read ebooks on something other than a Kindle or Kindle app, please send me an email.

- If you are planning on purchasing the Transcendence ebook, please consider swinging by Amazon and clicking "Buy" today. Release day sales will help a tremendous amount in the short-term and long-term success of the novel.

I am thrilled beyond measure for everyone to finally be able to read Transcendence, and I truly hope you enjoy it. Of course if you do, don't be shy about it! Reviews are the greatest gift you can give, but tweets, posts on Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, Pinterest, your own blogs, and forums are also most welcome.

Thank you all so much for your support and enthusiasm - your emails, messages, tweets and more. You've made it possible for me to tell this story, and the next one.


BiowareFanClub did an excellent spotlight this week on Magic City Con, taking place in Birmingham, AL, July 24-26th: A Magic City Con Shoutout

I mention this for two reasons:

  1. The inimitable (BiowareFanClub's word, but I agree) RiHouston is the Senior Event Coordinator, so you know it will be an awesome con.
  2. It so happens I will be there, too. I’ll be speaking as a panelist and will have a booth with books to sign and other goodies.
So if you live in the southeast, considering stopping by this July. I’d love to meet you!

In other news, I was flabbergasted and humbled to learn itcher Magazine included me in their list of Top Female Science Fiction Authors, alongside such scifi legends as Lois McMaster Bujold, Ursula K. Le Guin, Catherine Asaro and more. Consider me tickled purple (I don’t do pink). I think I've fainted. 
Are You Happy       

In between writing Transcendence, I managed to do two guest blog posts on SFF author and blogger Raven Oak’s website: "Flashback Friday: Isaac Asimov's Foundation" and "Flashforward Friday: Unknowable Innovations". They’re quick, fun little posts, so give them a read. I also shared two Aurora Rising-related posts on my own blog: "The Long Way Around to a Book in Your Hands" and "Behind the Scenes with Transcendence".

What I didn’t manage to do while writing Transcendence was game. :| (Blank Stare) More writing is to come, but I think I’ll do some of that gaming thing, too. :Portal:

Writer, gamer, techie, modder, software developer, editor. While I am a huge gamer in general - particularly RPGs, action-adventure and MMOs - the Mass Effect series is my beloved.

The finale to my original science fiction/space opera trilogy, AURORA RISING, is now available. You can learn more about the trilogy and read excerpts, quotes, reviews and more on my website: All three books - "Starshine," "Vertigo" and "Transcendence" - are available in ebook and paperback from Amazon (; the paperbacks are also available from other retailers ( "Starshine" and "Vertigo" are also available in audiobook, with the "Transcendence" audiobook to come in June.

I have a Mass Effect fanfic, "If It Meant Living," which is complete and covers the entire game trilogy - as well as a series of one-shots, "Tales," and a sequel, "Beyond," which is also complete. Links to free eBook versions are below.
