Here it is gang - Enjoy <3
So, as most of you know, I have been working on a new book. After some writer's block I am finally on fire again. Now, thanks to some hard work I have come up with a rough draft of what the cover will look like.
Here it is gang - Enjoy <3
So guys, as most of you who are on my Facebook already know, I am a woman. I came out today and it is scary but feels really good. So let me answer a few questions as to why I am clarifying this.
On Wattpad, I lead everyone to believe I was male. I did this, primarily because I was under the assumption science fiction couldn't be taken seriously if written by a woman. I also had consumed myself in wirting to the point that I just wanted to be someone else.
But as I learn about myself and I continue to grow in all areas of my life I realize that being honest with those who have been there for me from day one is one of the most important things. I cannot be happy if I am wearing a mask.
I also wanted to start sharing more of my life with you all. I recently came out of, not only writers block, but a deep depression. I suffer from extreme anxiety and periods of incredible depression due to some unsavory past experiences. In a way, this "coming out" is allowing me to no longer hide as I have felt I needed to after one of the more recent, traumatic experiences of a friend being killed. Agoraphobia set in pretty thick and I know now I must face my fears instead of hiding from them.
I hope you all can understand this strange way of re-exposing myself to the world. I was afraid but through the support of my readers and friends I have realized there is no longer anything to fear. Thank you for supporting me through all this and I hope I can do what it takes from here on forward to be everything you ever wanted in a writer.
Ok guys, the information you have been waiting for is here. Updates on all my stuffz!
Queen of Rebellion Sequel: For all of my Queen of Rebellion fans, the sequel is currently being worked on but we have no ETA yet as to the release. It's going to be much longer and, if you can believe it, filled with way more action! Please make sure to go and leave reviews for the book on Amazon and Goodreads so we can get the word out!
The P. P. A. Project: As you all know, our contest winner was chosen! With that being said, the story is in the early production stages and is going to be so good it literally pains me how excited I am to start writing the revised version of the fan favorite. Pandora and the whole gang are back with a few new faces (and a few we would rather have died off). I hope everyone is excited.
Silent Fracture Sequel: Silent Fracture is also getting a second book which is also in the VERY early stages of production. Silent Fracture is also going to undergo edits and revisions as the version out now is RAW.
Finally, the new addition to the family: Nuclear Summer!
Nuclear Summer is going to be a cyberpunk/science fiction story about a post-war America and the destruction an inevitable climate change brings to lower level citizens of the country. I don't want to spoil anything too early but this book will include a lot more personal relationships, government conspiracies and A. L.'s favorite thing in the world... tons of humor and action! Keep up with me on my Facebook page for promotional images and updates on all my works!
Starting July 19 until the end of the summer, Queen of Rebellion and Silent Fracture are on sale for just $0.99! Pick up one of these adventures today to start an amazing ride into adventure.
Queen of Rebellion
So my book, Queen of Rebellion, is officially for sale on Amazon Kindle >> Link to Book << today and I am VERY EXCITED! I also woke up with this quote in my Facebook feed and had to share it wit everyone. I think it is perfect for us indie, starving artists who have lost a bit of our faith in our art.
It has taken me a long time to get to the point where a book that I have published was both for me and made me brave enough to sell. I wanted to share this little fact with my fans because I don't think a lot of people know what fears come along with exposing your art and passion with the world.
If Queen of Rebellion is never sold, if no one likes it or ever reads it, our strength must come from the fact that we enjoyed it. We went on the adventure. And others will soon be with us experiencing the same journey. For those that do enjoy it, they have made our dreams come true. Thank you to everyone who made this possible. Thank you most to my fans, my family and my little voices. Thank you second to the fear. It kept me going and now here I am.
Oh, and Happy (late) Father's Day to all the papa-people out there!
So, with all the work I have been doing on other books and getting ready for the release of Queen of Rebellion, I have been snacking on a lot of really great things my sister (visiting from Houston) is spoiling me with. Thank you, Sara. She designed the original cover art for both Queen of Rebellion and Silent Fracture and will do the following books as well.
Ok... where was I? Oh yea, let me get back on track. I reopened my Wattpad account as I couldn't stay away. I have been playing with new story ideas and they are literally the best people to bounce ideas off of when I am unsure of a certain story. You can read a lot of my experimental work there and instead of using beta readers (which turned into something of a failed experiment) I will be using that site instead for suggestions and whatnot. Please stop by and check out the original works of Queen of Rebellion as it has changed a LOT!
I also have been working on a new version of The P. P. A. Project. There is a contest coming but it was delayed due to the release of QOR. Apparently getting ready for a release is really... really hard. I also have a friend who writes M/M stories. If that is your flavor I wanted to plug her! Check her out on Facebook or at her Website >> Rain Carrington Facebook - Rain Carrington Website

We are revamping the covers to my novels and this is the first! Everyone, I hope you enjoy the new cover to Silent Fracture! It was actually a pretty easy change, the other looked too cartoonish so this is the new look... for now ;) Stop by Amazon to pick up a copy today!
The long awaited cover release has come! This is the official cover for Queen of Rebellion! With the help of a friend and her talent we have come up with what we feel is the perfect first cover for the first book in the series.
Along with the cover release, I am going to be holding a contest that relates to another upcoming revamped series, The P. P. A. Project. That will be later on in the day.
I wanted to thank everyone thus far who has participated in the excitement of the Queen of Rebellion series. My Beta Readers are currently hard at work going over the novel and the very last edits, additions, and changes will be made in the next two week.
The book release date has officially been set to June 17th!
