What is a prequel teaser?

If you’ve never heard a prequel teaser before, don’t worry. I made it up. Defiant a prequel because it takes place just before book one begins. At only four chapters long, it introduces you to the characters and the story, and it gives you an idea of what’s about to come, but it doesn’t wrap up at the end the way a novel does. Instead it ends on a cliffhanger, which is also called a teaser. Although Defiant takes place before book one in terms of linear time, you can read the books in any order.

Prequel Novella, Coming April 2015


Well, hello there! Long time, no see. :)

You’re probably wondering what happened to me. You see, since my last post I was captured by trolls and forced to live under a bridge and … no? Not buying it eh?

Well actually, what happened was my computer crashed and … hmm, not going for that one either, are you?

Would you believe the dog ate my blog posts?

Ok, ok … the truth is that since I last spoke to you in September, I’ve been beavering away in the background getting ready for the publication of my novel in October, 2015.

You needn’t roll your eyes at me. That’s actually what I’ve been doing. Cover art is in development, book trailers are in the works, I’m redesigning my website (yes, again) and the list goes on and on!

But the most exciting news is that I’ve been writing a prequel novella, entitled Defiant for publication on April 22, 2015. This will be a little teaser to help whet your appetite for the full-length book in the Fall. It takes place in the days leading up to chapter one of book one and will introduce you to the character that started it all – Clancy Donovan!

Stay tuned!
