Hi, Alexandra! Glad to hear you're enjoying the series—and I've been feeling much better lately, thank you! :)

I wish I could give you an exact date for book three, but I'm still not to a point yet where I can accurately predict a release date. The way things are looking right now, mid–April is probably the earliest it will be ready. One thing I *can* say is that I have not stopped working on it! The going has been a little slow, lately, but I hope to have it ready for release soon. As soon as it reaches the final stage of edits, I'll be able to set a date and will be making a big announcement, so say tuned!

I’m happy to report that there will *definitely* be a fifth book to round out the series! There’s no official release date for book 5 yet since it’s still being written, but as soon as it’s finished and the date has been decided I’ll be making a big announcement on Facebook, my blog, and to my mailing list subscribers. Thanks for the question! :)(less)

The Revival Audiobook!

After seven years—and a lot of waffling on my part—I finally decided it was time to give my Variant Series novels the audiobook treatment!

The first book of the series, Revival, is narrated by the lovely and immensely talented Allyson Voller! Out of everyone I auditioned, Allyson's performance was far and away my favorite. She totally knocked it out of the park! Wo Read more of this blog post »

“Just keep her away from bookstores, if you can."
Bookstores.
Thanks, Grayson. That helps.
Apparently whoever said, "no harm ever came from reading a book," hadn't met this girl.”
Jena Leigh, Revival

“He reached out, put his hands on her shoulders and pressed downwards. She fell into a seated position against a fallen tree.
"Sit," he said. "Stay."
"That's cute," she said. "Tell me to 'heel' and see what happens.”
Jena Leigh, Revival

“You coming?"
She hesitated, weighing her options. Risk running back down the flaming aisles to find another exit? Or trust the guy who'd been stalking her all afternoon?
The fire spread to the nearby shelves. The heat was growing unbearable.
"You cut me deep," he said. "You'd actually choose a fiery death over the prospect of my company. I have to admit, that stings a bit.”
Jena Leigh, Revival
