Can you write a review for The E Series Boxed Set?

posted in: reviews | 0

I just wanted to put a request out there to all you E fans.  Can you write an Amazon review for the boxed set of books 1-3?  I’ve just recently put the boxed set together, and I’m trying to promote it.  However, there are only a few reviews on it so far, which I think discourages people from picking it up.  So, if you’ve read the first three books, it would be great if you could write a review for the boxed set.

If you’ve already reviewed any of the other books, you can simply copy and paste your review over.  If you haven’t written a review yet, please remember that reviews don’t need to be long or complicated.  You can simply write your opinion however you want to put it.

The boxed set can be found here.

Thanks so much to all of you for your help!  Reviews can make such a difference. It’s a way that you all can take part in my writing journey and help the series grow.

Meanwhile… yes, I’m still writing.  And still planning on releasing Endgame in the spring.  Wishing you all a wonderful 2016.  May it be your best year yet!

Elegy Release Date + Rambles

posted in: Uncategorized | 3

Hey everyone!  I know you’ve all been waiting for the release date for Elegy, and I’ve been putting it off.  Well, the good news is, now that I’ve set it, it’s really not that far away!

Elegy is coming to Kindle on Monday, November 23rd, 2015!

Elegy cover

Less than one second: how long it takes for everything to change. The story rewritten. The answers lost. The world turned upside down.

 

Eden’s life is in tatters. Too many questions. Too many answers she never would have chosen. With no time to think or mourn, she struggles to take control of her fate once again. There’s one thing that Eden has always wanted— find Oscar. One solution— ask for Matt’s help. So begins a frantic journey with high stakes and savage battles. Buoyed by friendship, hardened by experience, Eden fights her way through endless obstacles with the single goal of reuniting her little family.

 

But does Outpost Three still exist, or have the Sentries destroyed it, along with the last of Eden’s hopes?


Rambles

Look for some teasers coming soon.  In the meantime, I’ve been working like crazy.

Thanks to a nudge from one of my fans (*waves at Karen*) I’ve finally gotten around to working on the print formatting for the last two books.  In the process, I’ve made some changes to the back covers of E and Evolution in order to have a cohesive look for the whole series.  The print editions of all the books (except Elegy, which I will get to shortly) should be available in the next few weeks.

I’ve also started writing Book Five.  As a matter of fact, I’ve been making quite a lot of progress.  Unless this one gets incredibly long and I have to split it into two, it will be the final book in The E Series.  The idea of finishing up the series is bittersweet.  Quite a milestone and yet… sad.  But I suppose all stories have an end.

options-396267_640So what’s after that?  I’ve been toying with a couple of ideas.  One is a spin-off series set in the world of E, a few years after the end of the main series.  I’m really leaning toward this one.  There would be a whole new cast of characters, some big changes, and a very different story line.  I’ve got a lot of ideas that I want to play with.

Another possibility is a kind of prequel (I know I’ve technically already done that).  This one would be more a history of the world of E, telling the story of how the world came to be the way it is.  Some of those answers will come to surface by the end of the series, but I think that answers and stories are very different.  Answers are based on information– mostly “how” and “what”.  Stories focus on deeper meanings– more “why”.  So I am definitely tempted to tell that story.

…And then there are other things.  Different things.  I still have two books (and part of a third) in a fantasy series just sitting on the shelf, waiting for me to get to them.  These books are incredibly different from The E Series, but I love them, none the less.  I really want to get back to them, get them ready, and send them out into the universe.  But again, we’re talking about a series, so I think that once I commit to publishing them I’m going to need to focus on seeing them through to the end, which will mean putting other projects on hold for a while.

Just to throw in a few more options, I have at least three more stand-alone novels with series potential just banging around in my head, trying to get out.  And that’s really only the tip of the iceberg, because I see stories everywhere, in everything.  There is no way I’ll ever write it all before I die.  Someone really needs to develop some sort of direct brain interface, or something!

So, yeah!  Lots of choices coming up, and I’m really not sure which path I’ll choose.  But I’m definitely going to keep writing, because that’s my thing.

Cover Reveal: Elegy (E, Book 4)

posted in: cover reveals | 6

Hey guys!  I’m still working away, trying to get Book 4 ready for publication.  I know I’ve been pretty quiet about updates, but that’s because I’m focused on getting this book done.  I still don’t have an official release date.  I’m hoping it won’t be too far off, now, though.  I’m probably going to be skipping a lot of the book-release-hoopla this time around and just focus on getting the book to readers as soon as possible.  All that said, here’s the cover of Elegy.  Hope you all like it!

Picture Imperfect by Jelsa Mepsey
Published by: Swoon Romance
Publication date: September 22nd 2015
Genres: Romance, Young Adult
Synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Max Prescott knows all too well the joys of cheating girlfriends and traitorous friends. He’s not eager to have his heart trampled again, but money and a fresh start can mean the difference between happiness and a dark path with his name on it.

So when Melly Hewson, a perky and enigmatic classmate, asks him to be her model for a year-long photography project, Max agrees. Melly Hewson is everything Max isn’t. She’s outgoing, witty and always knows the right words to say. And despite his best efforts, Max finds himself drawn to her.

Still, he isn’t stupid. He knows a girl like Melly will only use him and then never speak to him again. Besides, he’s been to that rodeo. As long as he keeps his feelings off the market, he won’t make the same mistakes as last time.

Yet underneath Melly’s sweet smiles lies a secret she’d rather kept hidden. And as the year goes on and the photos pile up, Max and Melly will find themselves developing through the negatives, a story that when told could push them to opposite ends of their world. But the only thing worst than the truth is, the facade that surrounds them.

I’m finally putting together a street team, and you can be part of it.  For those of you who don’t know, a street team is a group of super-fans who support an author, musician, etc.  I’m looking for people willing to put in time and effort to help me reach a wider audience.

If you want to be part of my inner circle, and you’re willing to dedicate yourself to the task, you can read more about my concept of a street team and sign up through the embedded form below.  (Or if the form doesn’t work for you, go here.)
