For the first time, I’m participating in an anthology of short stories from various authors. I so love the title, Brave New Girls: Stories of Girls Who Science and Scheme.
I can’t take any credit for the title. That all goes to Mary Fan and Paige Daniels, editors and the brains behind the book. This is the second BNG, the first being Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets.
Each year, they pub a new BNG anthology, and every year they give the profits from the sale to a charity that encourages girls to pursue careers in STEM (that’s Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) fields. This year the money is going into a scholarship fund run by the Society of Women Engineers.
My contribution to BNG is called “Sweet Emotion”, a never before pubbed short from the Mothman Mysteries universe. And it’s the first Mothman Mystery written from Bridget’s POV!
When strange, new benefactors show up for her school’s Spirit Week and offer outrageous prizes, all the students whip into a competitive frenzy. All the students except Bridget whose internal creepiness meter humming.
Bridget draws from lessons learned in science class to get to the bottom of the mystery before the Spirit Week winner is chosen and his/her fate is sealed for good.
The anthology includes some really cool stories ranging from dystopian to sci-fi. Titles and Blurbs can be found here.
Brave New Girls: Stories of Girls Who Science and Scheme will be available in ebook and paperback formats from major online bookstores starting August 1. You can preorder for your Kindle now.
I’ll also have a few copies for sale at signing events this Fall.
What would keep a time traveler from reliving the most romantic moment of her life? Nothing.
With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I thought it fitting to share my favorite romantic snippet from the Midnight Guardian series. This comes from Shadows Rising, number 4 in the series, with our favorite red-headed time traveler, Ann Martin. Happy reading!
Love this tradition!
A few weeks after each new release, I spill the hidden little somethings that I like to call Easter Eggs. Here are the eggs for Red Feather Girl, the new short story included in the Amazon Exclusive edition of The Complete Midnight Guardian Series.
Read the story first, this post contains SPOILERS. Read More
2016 is the fifth anniversary of Of Sun & Moon and the start of the Midnight Guardian series. I couldn’t let it just slip by.
Well, I guess I could. But I didn’t want to. After all, no one likes a forgotten anniversary.
To celebrate, I’ve put together a box set of the complete series as a single ebook. The Complete Midnight Guardian Series includes all six novels and the Siren’s Call short story (from Wattpad and included in the print versions of Shadows Rising). I’ve also included a never before published short called Red Feather Girl. It’s a romantic adventure that takes place after House of Gammen. Also included is my own character artwork at the beginning of each novel and short.
The Complete Midnight Guardian Series is an Amazon Kindle exclusive. It releases December 13th, but you can preorder it now. Here’s the link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MQHEOXK
There’s also a song.
To make this anniversary super extra special, I commissioned a song from Beth Crowley. I met Beth briefly a couple of years ago when she introduced me to her music. You’ll find her on YouTube and iTunes where she belts out her original, book-inspired tunes with the passion of a true fangirl.
Being a drooling fangirl myself, I found an instant connection. I contacted Beth and she began work on The Dark. Inspired by the Midnight Guardian series, it delves into Keira’s conflicting feelings for Brun.
The tune is haunting. The lyrics are beautiful. The vocals break my heart and make me cry for more. Seriously. I can’t wait for you to hear it. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait long. The song will be available on iTunes on Dec. 12.Some free codes are burning a hole in my inbox so join me at Britt Cole’s Searching Release Party on Dec. 15th during the hour of 7 pm eastern/ 6 central and you might just get one. Party goers will also get a look at the lyric video.
Thanks everyone for your support of Keira and Colby’s story. Without you, this series wouldn’t be. Happy 5th Anniversary to all of you!
I can’t keep quiet any longer!!!!!
2016 marks been five years since the first Midnight Guardian book was published, and I’ve gone beyond the book world to celebrate! These past weeks, I’ve been working on a top secret project.

Yes, THE Beth Crowley. Singer of stunning, YA book-inspired songs like Warrior, Skin and Bones, and Gone.
