Kindle Editions

Recently, my publisher has been working like crazy to get their authors' backlist titles into Kindle format, and I'm excited to report that all my books are now available for Kindle. Previously, it was only my newest title, Cold as Ice, that was available as an ebook, but now all four books are up there in the Amazon Kindle Shop. The availability of ebook formats will provide more choices (along with print and audio versions) for readers and will open new possibilities for readers who don't live near LDS bookstores. Even though I don't have a bookstore outside my door, I can now get LDS fiction instantly. Of course, this can be, um, dangerous. Purchasing ebooks is perhaps a little TOO fast and easy, giving new meaning to the term "impulse buy" . . .

I'm particularly excited that my first book, The Believer, is available for Kindle. The Believer has been out of print for a while, so to have it for sale again is very exciting to me. Believer is different from my other books (which are contemporary mystery/suspense); it's a dystopian thriller.

Now I'll get mushy: I think my first book will always have particular significance to me. The publication of The Believer was the fulfillment of a dream. For years and years, I'd worked on this book, writing and rewriting as I learned the craft of writing a novel and refined the story. For years, I'd dreamed of being published, and when I would walk into LDS bookstores, I'd yearn to have my own book on the shelf. That moment when I received my box of author's copies and there was my own story, my own words--that story that I loved and that I'd worked on for so long--there on the pages of a real published book with a cover and everything--wow! My first review came from Robison Wells . . . ah, memory lane. I hadn't met Rob yet, but now I know him to be an extremely nice, extremely smart, and extremely talented guy. He's also the totally awesome author of Variant, which will be released next month. Yay!

Anyway, I'm thrilled to have The Believer available again!


  1. I checked Barnes and Noble, and my books are not on Nook, unfortunately. But thanks for asking!

  2. Bummer. But sharing the paper book is easier than an ebook. So maybe not. =D

  3. I totally hear you on the ease of downloading books now. I have to be careful!

    Can't wait for Rearview Mirror to come out. That one is a 'must have' for me! :)

  4. True, Donna--paper books still have the advantage of being easier to pass around!

    Thank you, Julie! I hope you enjoy it!

  5. How exciting!! I love The Believer. I hope this means the possibility of the sequel getting published increases. *HINT* :)

  6. Thank you, Shanda! My editor and I are still holding out hope for the sequel, so we'll see what happens.
