Book Box Day is a big thing in our house. There’s something special about getting to hold in your hand the culmination of hours and hours of hard work. From the kernel of an idea, to the proposal, to the arc design, to sitting down every single night to get the story out. Then on to edits, proofing, telling people about it…and then, the book box. It’s the physical reality that you actually did something with all that time. I like it. A lot.
Chosen is my fourth novel, the first standalone after my Afterlife, Inc trilogy, and I’m so excited it’s going to be out in the world next month. I really love the cast of characters in this book, and I hope you will too.
It’s available for pre-order over at Bold Strokes (always buy from the publisher rather than Amazon if you can–it’s better for both the authors and the publishing houses that work so hard to get us out there), or, if you’re too excited to wait, you can always give me a shout to have a signed copy sent to you.
Here’s the blurb:
Climate change moved faster than anyone anticipated, and the Earth, along with many of its inhabitants, is dying. When a military convoy arrives to pick up Devin Rossi and Karissa Decker, along with dozens of other bewildered people, the two have no idea they are part of a group selected by the government to be transported to a space station preparing for the colonization of another planet. They are members of the Chosen.
On their way to the military base, their convoy is attacked and Devin and Karissa learn the real reason behind their selection. Their attraction grows as they struggle to survive and wrestle with the decision to continue on to the base as part of the Chosen, which means leaving millions of others behind to die.
Will they face an uncertain future together, or will the cost be too high?
