I catch up on books I've been wanting to read (my to-read list here is a mile long), and I go back through some of my old work. Reviewing pieces that I had previously discarded helps get my creative juices flowing. (less)

I have romance, post-apocalyptic, paranormal, thriller, horror, and a love story coming soon.

Resistant is new, so I can't say yet how popular it is, but judging by my fans the order goes as such: Shifter, Alone, HIM, with Resistant slowly passing HIM.

If you like romances, I say go with Shifter first since the next two books will be coming out next year and it is on audio--just one credit if you have a subscription to Audible (Do you like what I did there?:) :) ). Although, I would say Resistant would appeal to male readers more than anything else I've written, with Alone as a close second, but I'm not sure I'll be writing a sequel to Resistant, and if I do, when I'll write it.

After those, I'd say Alone. The audio should be out next year and the next two books in that series should be out in 2017. Fans love it and there is more to come.

HIM is my favorite, but the subject matter is intense, so it isn't a fan favorite by any means.

I have two free short stories you can get from Smashwords and NOOK, to give you a taste of my writing style, but like HIM they aren't fan favorites.

I hope this helps. :)
