Well, after several years, I decided it was time to give FLUKES a new look.
Here it is! What do you think? I fell in love with this picture immediately because it looked just like Meena and Blake.
I sent the image to Stephanie at Once Upon a Time Covers and she worked her magic to make it perfect. She understood exactly what I wanted. (She's also responsible for the amazing cover of the Dark Betrayal Trilogy covers and happens to be an amazing author.)
Flukes is currently on sale for $.99 right now too.

Now, I want to touch base with you about RIPTIDE, the next book in the FLUKES series. I've received a great deal of emails and messages asking if I am indeed releasing that book and when I will do so. I'm afraid I don't have any more information for you right this minute. Riptide is coming, I swear. I'm dying to write the story and publish it for everyone else. Jacen is a loud character in my head. The truth, which isn't going to be popular (but I'm going to be honest with you anyway), is that I must focus on my contracted books with HarperCollins before I can move on to anything else. While FLUKES has a very vocal set of readers that love Meena and Blake as much as I do, this book has never been a big seller. That's totally fine and I'm not complaining. I wrote this book for me after I finished my first series and to be honest you never know if how you feel about a book will translate into sales. Those that read it loved it, got it, and want more--I hear you. I WILL get this book out.
So, straight up honesty here, I had to focus on the books that paid the bills. I also had to decide on how much time it took me to write books that I am proud to put out. I don't want to rush anything--I want readers to get my very best. That means taking my time and not throwing something together just to make everyone happy... because that wouldn't really make anyone happy, would it? I promise that when Riptide is released you will have the very best story possible... and you should have the very best. Because Jacen and Violet deserve a beautiful story. (Look, I just dropped a little information that some of you might have already figured out. Meena's best friend Violet plays a very important part on Jacen's story.)
So, keep on asking me when it's coming. Let me hear how much you want to read their story. I am going to make it happen. It's mostly plotted (just a few things to work out) the cover is done (whoa!) and I'm dying to write it. So, hang in there guys. Before you know it, Jacen will be swimming your way in all of his hunky merman glory.
