The next AJ book will be . . .

We just wrapped up another great Southern Festival of Books weekend. It was nice to be back after a break last year for another event that coincided. Our booth this year had authors from 3 states and we had an amazing time despite getting rained out later Sunday afternoon. If we met there for the first time, then Welcome!

Next up:

ECHO AND EMBER releases in just a handful of days!

After that, the next book will not be a NightShade book . . . I know a lot of you want the next installment. You’ll get it! Promise.

I get book ideas from so many places that I sometimes don’t remember where the idea came from at all. But this one, I dreamed. All the way through. The whole story. I had this dream in 10th grade and I remember it, in its entirety to this day. It’s time to write the story of FORTUNE. Look for FORTUNE to be out next spring (I hope.) And grab ECHO AND EMBER to keep you until then. Also due next year: GARDEN OF BONE – NightShade book 5. You’ve been waiting for Eleri to find out more about Emmaline and Donovan to find out more about his past . . .

Keep your eyes here for more information as we go!

Happy reading–

Welcome Readers . . .

Welcome to AJ’s World. It’s a little weird here. I love science and data–literally, when I panic about anything, I talk myself out of it with statistics. I love a good puzzle (probably why I love science) and I want to solve it. My family supports me and my writing habit, but I’m not treated like royalty at all. This is what my sister did with my book:


(She says it’s damaged, so it’s not an insult. Also, it was the right height.)

I’ll post here what I’m working on. Where I’ll be and more.

So for right now, the next stop is the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville. OCT 13th-15th. Almost all the Griffyn Ink authors will be there with me along with a few others. Come on by and get an advanced copy of ECHO AND EMBER. Some of the other authors will have advanced copies of their books as well! Read up on the Southern Festival of Books here:
