I’ve been waiting a week to make this exciting announcement. A few weeks ago, I met a young woman online named Maddalena. She lives in Switzerland and she first contacted me to tell me how much she enjoyed reading A Rose to the Fallen. She later read my second novel The Howling Heart and contacted me again to tell me she enjoyed that story too. She enjoyed it so much, she wanted to send the manuscript to Alex Pettyfer’s agent so he could read the story. Of course I agreed. For anyone not familiar with The Howling Heart, the story was inspired by Alex and I wrote the hero Riley in his likeness. I just received a confirmation that the manuscript has been delivered to his agent Thor Bradwell at William Morris Endeavor Entertainment in Los Angeles. I’m hoping it gets passed along to Alex. I know he’s very busy filming I Am Number Four, but I have my fingers crossed. I have to give a huge thanks to Maddalena for helping me get The Howling Heart to Alex. If the manuscript reaches him, I hope he likes the story and can see himself as Riley.
Yesterday I got an email from Toby Hemingway’s mother Annamaria confirming he received A Rose to the Fallen. She said Toby sends his thanks for the book and wishes me lots of success. He wants to contact me directly, but he’s not sure when because he’s currently busy with work and traveling. I hope he packs the book along because I think those long plane trips would be the perfect opportunity for him to get to know Tristan. I asked Annamaria to ask Toby if he could send me a picture of himself with the book, so I’m hoping he includes one when he contacts me. If I hear from him, I’ll be sure to let everyone know.
The e-book for A Rose to the Fallen has been released. Below are some links to where you can purchase it. I hope this helps those who were unable to buy the paperback online, or those who prefer to read digital books.
In my second novel The Howling Heart, Riley explains to Paige the history of his kind. He tells her the love story of Erik Ulfr and his human mate Anya. One of my readers named Ann who lives in Poland, was nice enough to send me the below picture after she read the story. I wanted to share it because I think it wonderfully illustrates the magical tale of Riley’s ancestors.
A Rose to the Fallen will soon be available in e-book format. I’ve received numerous emails from people outside of the U.S. who are having trouble purchasing the paperback. Either the book isn’t available in their local stores or the online shipping is too expensive. I want to help accommodate them and make my book more accessible to everyone. Not to mention, I need to stay updated with the latest book technology. When the e-book is released, it will be available at the Amazon Kindle Store, Barnes & Noble, Scribd.com, BooksOnBoard.com and Sony eBookstore. Stay tuned!
