Susan Kaye Quinn is the author of the bestselling Mindjack Series, which includes three novels, three novellas, and a trailer. She’s currently writing a steampunk fantasy romance, just for kicks. When that’s out of her system, she has ambitious plans to embark on a series about the Singularity (the time when computers become more intelligent than humans) that should appeal to fans of the Mindjack novels. Or possibly play on Facebook all day. Could go either way.

‘Tis the season!

Thanks to everyone who participated, supported, tweeted, and encouraged me during the blog tour of How To Survive Ancient Spells and Crazy Kings. Big hugs for everyone. I love that story, so it’s been really neat to see it out in the world.

I have another big surprise too. (Okay, well not a total surprise.)

If you’d like to read it, or if you know of any kids, nieces, nephews, or neighbors who enjoy adventure stories, then please pass on the word!

If you’d like more information on the end-of-the-world Maya prophecy then  here’s a fantastic article on it from J&P Voelkel, authors of The Jaguar Stones, who focus solely on the Maya in their books.

Hope you’ve all had a terrific year! I’ll be back in January! ((Hugs))

When your ereader goes poof!

So I learned that if funny little lines appear on your Kindle screen then it can’t be fixed by resetting the device. (Trust me, I tried at least 100 hundred times.) And that most likely I inflicted screen damage through too much pressure or extreme heat.

A very, very sad day for me.

I brought it on a weekend trip, hoping to sneak in some reading right before bed or early in the morning. I had just started a book and I was only two chapters into it! I desperately wanted another chapter of it, to get lost in the words before falling into a deep sleep despite the air leaking from my air mattress throughout the night.

Of course there was the two other books I was in the middle of reading too, and don’t forget the numerous freebies and samples that when I don’t have a lot of time, I love reading especially when I’m in the mood to discover new voices.

Recently, I’d been telling myself and others that I read half print and half ebooks. Well, I learned this weekend that I’ve been lying, because when I couldn’t access any of books on my Kindle…I felt bereft.

And now, back at home, waiting patiently for my new Kindle to arrive (which I did receive a discount for, in case you were wondering) (and which I couldn’t do without for too much longer) the sad truth hits that I’m totally addicted to reading in a way I wasn’t before. Read my Indelible post about it here.

So, lesson learned: bring print book with me on vacation too just in case my Kindle goes poof.

And yes, technically, my Kindle didn’t go poof because that would have required wisps of smoke and maybe a bit of magic. Details, details.

Do you read more print or ebooks?

An Indelible’s Beach Bash with lots of books!

So I was chatting with my Indelible buddies one chilly afternoon and we realized that a bunch of us had new releases of novels, novelettes and short stories. So it didn’t take long for a promotional event to spring up.

Starting tomorrow (Monday), we’re holding a giveaway where you can win an ereader of your choice: Nook or Kindle.

But guess what? It will be loaded with the Indelible’s new releases! Woo hoo!

  1. Visit the Indelibles Website between May 21st-May25th. (Starts Monday)
  2. Follow the chain of links to each of the blogs on the hop.
  3. Collect the secret word from each blog.
  4. Submit the secret sentence for your chance to win.

I’m also announcing the re-release of The Almost Assassin: the short story prequel to my novel. It includes an excerpt of A Spy Like Me.

Summary: A teen attempts to follow in the family business but a beautiful “spy” may be his downfall making him The Almost Assassin.

This is my gift to all of you! Download any version from Smashwords for FREE!

(The story will be 99 cents on Amazon and Barnes and Noble until they price match.)

Good luck winning the ereader! And return here all this week for guest posts and giveaways from S.R. Johannes, Jennifer Hoffine, Becca Puglisi, and Gina Robinson!

My secret word is “on”. And the next stop is Lisa Nowak!

Party on! It’s almost summer!
