The Broken Earth Series

My newest book Shattered Hearts has just released so I thought I would take a moment to talk to you my awesome fans about the series. 


Why Broken Earth? 

Broken Earth means a lot of things to me, the fact that our Earth is Broken right now. You famine, death, and  war on the news every day. Broken Earth can also mean tilling the earth to grow things because we planted and grew things on the "farm" that I grew up on. Broken Earth also means breaking down the old barriers of the past and starting with something new.

 Where did the idea for the series come from?

The original idea for the series came from a dream I had after watching the video "Judgement Day" by a good friend of mine Doreen Taylor. Her video pulls at your heartstrings because a woman is looking for the man she loves during Armageddon.

What is the premise of the story? 

Broken Earth takes place in a world where all the adults are gone. They were killed by an unknown wasting disease which I can only describe as being akin to AIDS. It's brought on by industrialization which causes a great deal of pollution that harbors this disease.
The main character is a sixteen year old girl named Jess who lost her family to this wasting disease and now has to live in a world without governments to control the gangs that have formed their own governments in the city she lives in.

Why cemeteries?

I tried to think of what the world would be like if millions of people died. The cemeteries of the world would not be able to handle the onslaught of bodies. Knowing the human condition I created the cemeteries as a reminder of how different people are. There are graves from every race, religion, and class of people. There are the graves of the rich that are ornate and are overgrown with foliage that was once intended to beautify these graves. Then you have the graves of the paupers often buried by their families in the dead of night with simple markers. It's a reminder that we are all made equals in death.

When I released Broken Earth in November 2013 I was working on the second yet unnamed book at the time that follows Jess' journey with her family after the events in Broken Earth. 
  

Why Shattered Hearts?
The title itself foreshadows what happens in Shattered Hearts. I knew I wanted to write about the hearts of the people that live in this world in the second book. I wanted to delve into the characters more after giving you an overview in Broken Earth.

What is the premise of the story? 
Jess and her family leave the city and travel through the cemeteries. In this time they meet new people and settle for a time in a new place. Relationships are tested with the new characters in the story. I don't want to give up too much of the story so as not to spoil it for those who have not read the series. If you've read Broken  Earth you'll love Shattered Hearts.


Where can you get my books? I'm glad you asked!

Excerpt:

“You’re sick, you know that?” I say into the darkness. A soft rustling sound greets me, followed by the shift of movement. Yes, the lights are off but the corridor is lit behind me so it’s not like last time. I can see enough to make out the looming figure that slowly paces toward me. “I know I’m not normal, if that’s what you mean.” A terrible devil’s mask appears before me, two feet away; Zeth is dressed entirely in black, the suit he wears obviously a thing of beauty even in the half light. His dark eyes shine from within the mask, sharp and hungry. “You’ve surprised me, Sloane. I like being surprised,” he rumbles. “Well you’ve surprised me, too. Although I can’t say the feeling is mutual.” He laughs, his voice so deep and powerful I can feel it in the soles of my feet. “You should open up a little. You never know what you might enjoy until you try it.” “I know exactly what I enjoy, Zeth, and standing around watching fifty naked people grind on each other isn’t it.” The eyes behind his mask flicker with annoyance when I say his name. He stalks toward me and reaches out, tracing his fingertips across my jawline. He seems pensive, intrigued by my stillness—I can’t freaking move—as he touches my skin. “If you don’t like watching, Sloane, you can always join in.”

Burn's World Tour by Fabulosity Reads


Genre: Romance: Steamy Romance
Publisher: Self Published
ASIN: B00CYQOG5I


"You never forget your first love. Burn couldn't even though she had moved on. An awesome love triange that 'burns' and keeps you reading." Smashwords reviewer
When the school star athlete, blue-eyed, blonde haired, Brody McGraw asks her out, Burn can hardly believe her luck.
In record time they start dating and she is thrilled when she can finally change her Facebook profile status to ‘In a relationship’.
However, Brody’s mother has huge political plans for her family and she makes it clear, they do not include someone with Burn’s color.
When Burn suffers a severe bout of self-loathing because of Dawn McGraw’s words, she is forced to make a decision that will break her heart.
Enter Trojan Catrell, a thug and an enemy of Brody McGraw. He wants what Brody has and he pursues Burn.
Since she hankers after Brody McGraw, Burn’s not interested.
However, Trojan has no intention of taking no for an answer and a long triangle that lasts for years ensues.




When he sees me, he smiles. A sheepish smile. Again, he’s wearing a long-sleeve black shirt, dark jeans, dreads tied back, and a stud in his ear. He has no other jewellery on.
“What’s your pleasure, sir?” I ask notepad and pencil in hand.
You.
I smile.
“What do I have to do to get you to get on the bar and do a Coyote Ugly for me?”
I look at the ceiling, then at him. “You’d have to dance with me.”
“No way!” he laughs. “I’ll just have a beer.”
“What kind of beer, sir?”
He narrows his eyes at me. “You choose. Impress me.”
“O … kay. One ginger beer coming up.”
“Ginger beer? What the fuck?!”
“And how would you like your ginger beer, sir? Rare, medium-rare, well done …?”
“Lemmee think …on a long body shot.”
I giggle and walk away to fetch the beer. When I return, it’s with an icy-cold Stella Artois and the entire staff.
His eyes flit around. “What the …?”
To his absolute horror, we clap and sing Happy Birthday to him.
He sinks lower into his seat and eventually puts his hand over his eyes. “Burn, I’m gonna fucking kill you!” he mutters as Tong Carlos and Madonna link arms and dance around.
My response is to “Yip! Yip!”
“Hooray!” they chorus.
When they leave, he tries to glare at me and fails. “I’m gonna get you back for this,” he warns. sinking further into his chair. “I promise.”
“Whaddyamean? You want them to sing in Chinese? I can arrange …”
“No!”
“Okay, okay!”
“So, what are you doing here?”
He shrugs. “Was in the neigborhood. ‘Sides, you promised me a drink and …”
“Ah.”
“It’s my birthday on Saturday and I’m having it at Danes. I’d like you to come.”
I wasn’t expecting him to invite me to a party.
“I want you to come. Bring your friends too.”
“Danes? Bring my friends? Wow! Really? Man, am I impressed!”
He nods. “I’ll send a car for you guys.”
My jaw drops. He’ll send a car! This is just too good to be true. Hang on, I’m underage. Has he forgotten? Danes won’t allow me in.
“What? You need a written invitation or something?’
I shake my head. “Only one problem – my age. I tried to get fake IDs, but the guy stiffed us for our money and …”
“Why ya trippin’? Just be there. I got it covered.”
“Whaaaaat?!” I feel faint with excitement. “You can get us in? Really?”
“Really.”
“I …” Wow! My friends will worship me for life if I can get them into Danes. How do I pass on it?
I look at him with one eye closed. “What’s the catch?”
“Catch?” He thinks about it. “One body shot.”
“Get lost!”
He laughs. “I’m kidding!”
“No strings attached?”
“None whatsoever. But …this …” He wags his finger between us – it don’t count as a date. We straight?”
I nod. “We straight.” Hell, the dudes getting us into Danes – no more trippin’ from me.
“Say yes.”
I smile. “Yes!”
His turn to smile. “Cool.” He looks pleased.
