Sales, new release updates, and hilarity

Redemption, the fifth book in the Ash Park series, is officially with proofreaders. And that means I have a spare moment to breathe and update you on all the exciting things going on right now! And maybe tell a joke or two. Because, obviously.


When Famished hit BESTSELLER status (16 different lists, and #1 in several categories), I was awed and grateful and SO EXCITED. But I’m even more excited that it is staying high on those lists. This week, thanks to an article about “badass women authors,” Famished hit #5 again–so I decided to extend the sale JUST A LITTLE. You can GET IT HERE FOR ONLY $.99! You should also check out the other authors on that list. Bestseller Kristen Mae is one of my faves, and if you liked Famished, Red Water will be right up your alley.

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL. CONVICTION, the second in the Ash Park series is ALSO ON SALE! CLICK HERE TO SNAG IT FOR ONLY $1.99!


Hidden has been kicking butt since its release last month. It almost pains me to wait for the end of summer to release Redemption…but editing takes time. It’ll be here before we know it. Look for #5 in the Ash Park series, due out in September!


What newsletter would be complete without an exquisitely terrible joke?  I could butter you up with the ones my kids like, such as the infamous: “What did the pig say at the beach on a hot summer’s day?” (“I’m bacon!”) But I’d rather do one about lawyers in honor of that Conviction sale. How about one Shannon would hate:

A prosecutor vacationing on the Riviera met an old lawyer friend and asked him what he was doing there. The lawyer replied, “Remember that lousy piece of real estate I purchased last year? Well, it caught fire, so I’m here with money from the fire insurance. How about you?”

The prosecutor replied, “Remember that horrible real estate investment I made in Mississippi? Well, the river overflowed. I made it down here with cash from the flood insurance.”

The lawyer cocked his head. “Wow,” he said, “How do you start a flood?”


I didn’t promise joke greatness…but hopefully it brightened your day just a little.

Thank you for reading. I couldn’t do this without you.
