Sneak Preview of DESERT BOUND: Cambio Springs Book Two

477px-Feathered_DawnGetting back to this thing that I actually do for a living—you know, writing—I have posted the first chapter of DESERT BOUND up here on the blog in the hopes that your massive and overwhelming enthusiasm will kick me in the backside so I get back to work!

I’m about a third of the way done with this book, and I’m having a great time getting back to the California desert setting, the small town mystery, and the shapeshifters of Cambio Springs. Writing time has been scarce, so this is my own attempt to get my butt in gear.


Five Mornings CoverHope you enjoy! And if you want the background to Ted and Alex’s story, just check out Five Mornings, the short story that’s available in e-book. These crazy kids have quite the history.

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. Yeah! We love your writing! Lot’s of enthusiasm headed your way lol. side note. I shared some of your description of Norway with a friend who lives in Norway, and he said your writing is very realistic. He was curious if you had visited Norway? Thanks again for all the time you give us and the great worlds and stories!

    • Thank you, Charity! I have not been to Norway. I really wanted to go, but I just did not have the travel time without REALLY delaying the release of the book, so I had to do a lot of research online. I have received negative reviews because it wasn’t realistic enough, so I appreciate your friend’s comments. I do try my best, even when I’m not able to actually travel to a place.

      • He is born and raised in Norway. He only saw parts from chapter two, and we talked a bit about the other cities mentioned. but this was his exact comment “Well, it most definitely sounds like Norway 🙂
        Nordfjordeid is actually a place a little in country and further north from Bergen, so research seems to be good 😀
        Plenty of places to get lost there!” and “Skiing in the whole country during winter.

        Bergen is tourist friendly (I hope, I’m leaving for 4 days on thursday) and also very popular among tourists. Cruise ships arrive in several harbours along our VERY long coast, also oslo. It’s nice to learn something from books one read, in my opinion.”

        Hope that helps soften the poor reviews a bit 🙂

  2. Add my voice to the “Back to Work” enthusiasts 🙂 I loved Five Mornings, but I’m holding off on reading that first chapter. I’m going to reward myself with snapping it up as soon as the book is released. I may reread Shifting Dreams to tide me over.

    Keep up the great work. Your writing is wonderful!
