Fractured Karma is the second book in this series. I plan to release it May 2015, earlier if I poke a folk in it and it's done. It is Mark's story, here is a link to it on my website. http://www.nancystraight.com/p/fractu... Thanks so much for the question!

I share my life with two fantastic sons, three rotten dogs and a husband that I adore. I have a regular career that some weeks grows to 60+ hours per week, so my life reduces the amount of time I spend writing. But when I’m able to sit down in a quiet room with my laptop, my dog Flash and a can of Pringles I am always able to write. (less)

Nancy Hi Krystle! Do you know Rachel Higginson? She wrote the Star Crossed series, one of my HUGE indie favorites and she's in Omaha, too! You should send her a note on twitter (@mywritesdntbite) and let her know you're neighbors. I plan to find her the next time I'm in Omaha - would love to meet you both at Starbucks!!


message 26: by Krystle

Krystle Jones Hi, Nancy! Sioux City, huh? I'm currently in Omaha. =) You should give me a shout out if you ever head my way anytime soon. It'd be nice to meet another writer.

Happy writing!

Krystle

AriaTheBookNerd Hey Nancy! :D
I really appreciate you letting me read your book!
I loved it.
Thanks for liking my review.
Haven't placed it in my blog yet but I will soon.
Thanks for making a very good book.

Charles I'm so ready for Destiny's Wrath!!! I can't believe it's almost here!

Charles I'm loving the new job! I stay busy every day and it makes time FLY by! I'm patiently waiting for the final to the trilogy! I just know it's going to be great! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!


message 17: by Nancy

Nancy Hi Charles! I'm doing great! How are you liking your new job? Are you still unpacking? Big plans for Thanksgiving? I just got a note from my aunt yesterday, she sent the first round of edits in the mail Tuesday/yesterday so they should arrive Fri/Sat.

I haven't jumped into the new series yet, hopefully by mid-December I'll start writing the new one. Last weekend was the first free time I've had in a while and I spent it riding ATVs and hanging Christmas lights with my boys. :)

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!


message 16: by Charles

Charles How's my favorite author been lately!?! How's the new book coming?


message 15: by Nancy

Nancy I just saw the reviews!!! Thanks so much! I'm going to send the link to the review to my aunt, she's a 30+ year creative writing teacher and moonlights as my editor! She'll love the comment about the editing comparing it to a best seller!

Just sent you a coupon for Destiny's Revenge. If you liked MD, you will LOVE DR!

Leaving for the airport in a few minutes, will be offline until Sunday morning. Have a great weekend!


message 14: by Charles

Charles Haha! Not quite! But I've been working and trying to sell the house we are in now! I have a vacation this next week to finish up before I start my new job on Nov. 7th. I'll be glad to be finished!


message 13: by Nancy

Nancy Holy cow, do you live in a mansion? How long does it take to move? :)

Just kidding!! My husband and I moved 5 years ago and vowed we would NEVER do that again, (after moving in 1996, 1997, 2001 and 2007). We've decided this one is our retirement house, not because we're old, but because neither of us is EVER going to pack and unpack again.

Are you unpacked yet?

message 10: by Nancy

Nancy I bought it on Amazon but I believe she will have it available on Smashwords soon, too. It was the first "non-YA" Paranormal Romance I had ever read.

WOW - a real eye opener!!! - but I really enjoyed the story. Susan is an absolute riot, and her personality definately comes out in her writing! :)

Melissa Where can I find Evangelina Green? I read your review and think I might like to read it after I finish Destiny's Revenge.


Melissa You are too sweet! I can't be the only reader to feel that way. You simply have a way to put everything together to catch the readers attention and keep it. You know how the old saying goes "some have it and some don't" well you have it and I'm just grateful that I found your works as something to read. You just let me know when you put a book out, I don't mind paying for great books!

Nancy Melissa,

WOW! That is the BEST compliment I've ever received! You will never have to pay for any of my books!!!! :)

Thanks so much for the kind words and for posting the review in so many places! I'm going to keep this post and read it every time I need some writing motivation.

Many thanks!
Nancy


Melissa Nancy - I enjoyed reading Meeting Destiny. I reviewed it on Barnes & Noble, Amazon and Smashwords. If there are more booksites out there let me know because I am more than happy to spread the word. You are such an amazing writer that people who don't read your works just don't know what they're missing. If people took advantage of your free offer then they won't mind paying whatever price for future books. Thanks again Nancy for introducing me to your wonderful writing!


message 4: by Nancy

Nancy Wow Melissa! Thank you so much for taking the time to send me a note and for writing such a great review! I see that you've already bought Destiny's Revenge - thank you! Destiny's Wrath (the last in the series) is coming along really well, I finished it last night but it'll go through a couple months of editing so I am targeting a January release. If you wouldn't mind posting a review for me on Amazon, I'll make sure you get a copy for free when it releases!


Melissa Wonderful book!! I loved it but I did cry at the end and I can't wait to read book #2. Thank you for writing! You are such a wonderful author and I can not wait to read more of your books.


message 2: by Nancy

Nancy I'm glad you're enjoying it!
