Last Day for #FreeRead of My Watcher

Today is the last day you can download My Watcher at Smashwords (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/624468)

Book Overview

A thrilling dark fantasy about Lexi. A teenage girl who was born with the ability to read minds and sense danger. She spent her life trying to keep her abilities a secret from the world. Afraid another psycho like the man in black would try to kill her. But everything changed on her 17th birthday when she transformed and started developing powers stronger than Zeus. But she is no mythological Greek God.

Far from it.

She has no control over her abilities and causes accidents every time she’s nervous or upset, which being a teenager is hard to avoid, especially when the most popular boys in school are fighting to be with her.

If that isn’t bad enough, a stranger is following her. She doesn’t know who he is or what he wants, yet he knows all about her abilities and that she’s developing more. And . . . he’s her only hope of understanding why she’s changing and others are after her. What she learns will send her life into overdrive.

My Watcher: The Zeuorian On Sale #Fantasy #Ebook

My Watcher: The Zeuorian is now on sale.

Book Overview

For the past two years Lexi avoided everyone at her high school so no one would discover she could read minds and sense danger. She didn’t want another psycho trying to kill her, because they got it in their head she was a monster.

But all that changed on her 17th birthday when she transformed into a total hottie and started developing powers beyond her control.

If that isn’t bad enough, a stranger is following her. She doesn’t know who he is or what he wants, yet he knows all about her abilities and that she’s developing more. And . . . he’s her only hope of understanding why she’s changing and others are after her.

One problem, he could be anyone at her school. With her new appearance, it’ll be a miracle to weed him out amongst her admirers. Still sometimes the truth is worth risking everything to uncover–even your life.

“My Watcher (extended version of Awakening) is a suspenseful, thrilling, fast pace, dark fantasy (paranormal), coming of age, mystery that will take you on a ride. When you think you know who is her Watcher, the author throws you a curve ball. For you romance fanatics, there is a little bit of that in the story too.”

#fantasychat What’s Your Writing Style?

Every writer has their own style of writing. Some take you down a leisure road through the characters life where you know everything about them, in some cases a little too much. Others go from 0 to 60, spending little time on character background. While the majority are a mix of the two.

Personally I lean more toward the thrillers. I hate reading pages of details or useless backstory. That’s why I wrote My Watcher {The Zeuorian Series) as a dark fantasy thriller.

I wanted the story like one of those crazy roller coasters at a theme park. It starts slow with a straight track. When it’s just about to begin the loop, the car switches direction and it heads down a dark tunnel. As it continues, it switch tracks, thoroughly confusing the riders as to what direction they’ll go until the very end the car swerves and travels up the loop at the beginning of the ride. When the car finally stops, the riders are out of breath and a little dizzy, but they can’t wait to get on it again.

So what is your writing style?

Difference between My Watcher and Awakening

If you have been following the Zeuorian Series, you probably noticed I just released two free short stories and My Watcher while Awakening has been pulled from the online book stores.

As part of the up coming launch of the next book Control this fall, I’m offering prequel free short stories and an extended version of Awakening (book 1) to re-spark interest in the series, because it has been a while since the first book has been launched. (Sorry life got in the way. The past year I’ve been sick and so has my 3 year-old son. I swear getting old sucks.)

The Short Stories
Lexi Greene’s Dangerous Lesson and Grim Awakening are the two combined stories in Monster broken out into their own books. (Actually Dangerous Lesson had been published prior to Monster and pulled from the stores for a limited time.)

In addition to those two free stories there will be several other free prequel short stories being posted in the next month. The stories will lead up to book 1 with short scenes from other characters (i.e. Tyler, Everett and others) in the book. However, none of the scenes will spill as to who is her real Watcher, which was still up in the air at the end of book 1 (intentionally).

Upcoming Short Stories Teaser:

Its seems danger is everywhere Lexi discovered after being forced to attend high school, but is it random or because they believe she is a monster for having telepathy.

Awakening Extended Version (My Watcher)

If you read book 1, you are probably wondering what has changed in the book and do I need to buy it?

Well if you don’t have the time or money to pay 2.99, you can skip buying this book and won’t be lost reading Control. For one I plan on briefly explaining story facts in the next book to bring new readers up to speed, if by chance they buy it before My Watcher. (And yes it happens.) However several new scenes have been added to the book and facts that will be referenced throughout the series that might be worth reading. But if you’re not sure, here is a brief list of what had been added to the story:

  • Scenes to explain further Zeuorian history and Lexi’s powers.
  • Scenes to deepen the love story
  • Scenes to deepen secondary characters and give them more backstory as well as make them sound unique and not cliche or flat.
  • Scenes to deepen Angie’s love interest.
  • Final scene with Tyler and his father to introduce his character for Book Hunted and explain in detail Tyler’s actions in book Control.

If you decide to buy the next book great. It will be released on April 8th. You can preorder here:

Update 4/5/16

Awakening will be exclusively available on Amazon Kindle for those of you who want to read the shorter version.

What would you do if you’re being stalked?

In my novel My Watcher The Zeuorian I joke about how the two characters Tyler and Everett stalk Lexi, following her everywhere she goes, but what if you were really being stalked what you do in that situation?

It’s not that uncommon as you may think. Frankly, we make it easy to do. We post pictures of ourselves, trips, hobbies and passions. We share personal information about ourselves through comments, stories and chats. We even sometimes post where we’re going to or currently at.

If that’s not bad enough, there are websites that sell information about you: your birthday, age, email, address, marital status, relations, income , finances, liens, law suits, marriage and divorce, complaints, and so forth.

As a prior victim of stalking, I know how easy it is to delude yourself that it can’t happen to you, but it does. If you’re active online, I guarantee someone is stalking you, even innocently wanting to know more about you.

So I ask you again, what would you do if you’re being stalked?

Hide? Report them to the police? Turn the tables on them?

Personally, I did them all. I found hiding only managed to shut myself off from the world while my stalker continued to follow me. Going to the police didn’t provide me any protection, even with the updated laws. Turning the tables on them . . . well, that can turn out good or bad. In my case it turned out good, but I won’t tell you how, at least not now. I’ll save it for one of my stories. Until then . . . I’ll let you fill in the blank. 😉
