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!

Hi Annalisa!

Right now book four is scheduled for release on Tuesday, June 20th. Just under two weeks to go! The cover reveal is scheduled for this Friday, June 9th, but if you'd like to see it a day early, make sure you're signed up for the mailing list: http://bit.ly/2pTIDGM

As for the total number of books scheduled for the series, the plan is for five novels to complete this particular story arc. There's currently a series of prequel novellas in the works and the chance for spinoff novels further down the road, but I hope to start in on a few original projects soon as well!

So glad you're enjoying the series so far! Can't wait for you to read book four! :)

Take care and happy reading!

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! Working with her has been a joy and she did a...Audiobook!

“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
