I am swooning yet again over my newest cover from LFD Designs. I will be completely honest here: I wasn’t sure if I was going to write a sequel to Ageless. I left the story where the arc of the book was clearly over, but there was a nice thread left open that could be continued if I wanted to do it.
Until this past week, I was leaning toward leaving it alone. Then I found this cover, and suddenly I saw Violet there clear as day. And so Immortal End will become a reality sooner rather than later. (Hooray! More Jeremiah and Jonah *wink*.)
I am feverishly working on Veiled Shadows right now, but Immortal End will be coming in Q1 2013 (if not sooner). When really all depends on 3 things:
- How long Veiled Shadows takes me to get done
- How long the 3rd Bloodtruth book takes to get done (Angeline fans everywhere- rejoice!)
- If I have a push from Twisted Souls fans to get the 3rd book in that series first
If you have an opinion, I’d love to hear from you in the comments or by dropping me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org). Series fans really do have a voice in my production schedule because at the end of the day, I’m writing for you.

Have I mentioned yet that I LOVE Halloween? It’s my favorite holiday (aside from my birthday- lol). As I’m gearing up for my virtual haunted house tour, I decided that I wanted to sweeten the deal just a bit for those who are going to travel along with me.
So here’s what I’m doing. Three of my books will be $0.99 from October 20th-October 31st: Heiress of Lies (Bloodtruth #1), Ageless and The Soul Garden (Twisted Souls #1). You get to choose your monster: vampires (Heiress of Lies or Ageless- each with its own unique twist) or zombies (The Soul Garden).
I hope you are as excited to kick off the virtual haunted house tour as I am. Chills and thrills guaranteed. Check back tomorrow for the official tour schedule!

There is nothing quite like hitting the “Publish” button on a new book. I got to experience that for the fifth time in my writing career last night when I uploaded Twisted Souls (Twisted Souls #2) to Amazon last night.
This second installment of the Twisted Souls series catches up with Cameron, Samuel, Malcom, Bishop, and yes, even Marius and Chim, nine months after the events in The Soul Garden. You may remember that Marius and Chim were wreaking havoc in the Office of Souls compound creating a horde of soulless ones (aka zombies!). Well, at the point where this story picks up again, there are a whole lot more soulless ones out there. That’s not good for our heroes.
My goal with this series was always to write a zombie tale with completely new mythology on the origin of how zombies are created. There are some vague sci-fi elements here (a dystopian society, it’s set in the future, etc.) but I really wanted to create some complex characters who are forced to deal with some pretty scary stuff while fighting for what they ultimately believe in and are willing to die for. I don’t go for blood and guts (although there are some) because I like to play with the things that you DON’T see that can still get you.
I’m thrilled to share this next part of the story with you, and I can’t wait to hear what you think, so leave me a comment, shoot me an email (cege@cegesmith), or stop by my Facebook page.
