About this author

Carrie daydreamed her way through college—until they thrust a marketing degree into her hands, slapped a summa cum laude seal on the corner, and booted her out into a less-than-stellar job market. Instead of panicking at the prospect of unemployment, she used her Midwestern logic to steer into the skid and point her life in the direction she really wanted to go: writing out those daydreams.


Hey, guys! Four things:

1. In case you haven't heard via social media, something pretty cool happened a few weeks ago. Strength (Mark of Nexus #1) was named a finalist for BEST NEW ADULT novel, and the Mark of Nexus series was named a finalist for BEST SERIES, in the 2014 eFestival of Words - Best of Independent eBook Awards! :)

The finalist with the most votes wins, s... Read more of this blog post »

“Rena?” I looked up as a figure emerged from the white void of snowfall. The snow dusted his broad shoulders as he took long, measured strides toward me, his black coat flapping in the wind.

As he neared, I made out his startled features. “Wallace?”

His gaze burned with indiscernible emotion. “Are you hugging the lamp post?”
Carrie Butler, Strength

“Well, why not just snap my damn olive branch and beat me with it? I was only trying to help.”
Carrie Butler, Strength

“Maybe that was why another part of me--a very small part--had wanted to kiss Wallace then. Both sides of his mouth, between his brows, and every other place those stupid worry lines marred his expression. That part of me had wanted to hold him tight and give him the comfort I knew he couldn’t ask for.

But that part terrified me the most.”
Carrie Butler, Strength

“Ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. Know what the first rule of flying is? Well I s'pose you do, since you already know what I'm 'bout to say.

I do. But I like to hear you say it.

Love. Can know all the math in the 'verse but take a boat in the air that you don't love? She'll shake you off just as sure as a turn in the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down...tell you she's hurtin' 'fore she keens...makes her a home.”
