The Everlasting Circle
Juliana Haygert
(Everlast #3)
Publication date: June 27th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult

The war is approaching and the time to find enough allies for an army is running out. As is Nadine’s life.
Though Micah would love to spend more time trying to find a solution for Nadine’s impeding death, she would rather focus on strategies to win the war. With a new hero, a new god, and new abilities, Nadine starts to believe they might actually have a chance to chase the darkness away from the world.

Until betrayal drags them back to step zero.

Lost and angry, Nadine almost gives up. Almost. Her time on this Earth might be ending, but she has too much to do before she’s ready to die. Against all odds, Nadine will keep fighting to win the war until her very last breath.
Genre: New Adult Fantasy. Warning: strong language, sex scene. This is the 3rd book in the Everlast trilogy. May contain spoilers of the previous books.

This was one of many stories published this year about my apocalyptic stories, and I gotta say: doing interviews has become pretty fun for me. I remember when I first started out, and I was doing short guest posts for blogs or writing up my own posts on GoodReads, back when nobody knew who I was and thought I was just an overly ambitious young writer who needed to pick a "real" career already. *double wink* Oh, how far I've come! I wish I could say that the road has been easy, but to this day, it is a LOT of very hard work to keep this world going and meet the demands of readers around the world (whom, I might add, I love and adore very much). 

You can read the entire story online right here. 

Thanks to my readers, who have made this success a reality. I owe it to you guys, and the hand of God. And I mean that, from the bottom of my heart. <3

What The Rest of 2016 Will Look Like for Summer Lane (Yours Truly)

Coming Soon!
What's up, world? Last year, I was insanely busy with work. This year, I've been even more busy, and keeping up with the demand for the post-apocalyptic stories of Cassidy's world has been the ultimate marathon. Between working on The Zero Trilogy, The Collapse Series and The Bravo Saga - plus teaching writing class - I've been one trick short of a full circus around here. 

Every so often, I take a moment to update my readers on what's next for my post-apocalyptic landscape and more, so here's the dealio for the remainder of 2016. 

On July 20th, 2016, I'm releasing State of Fear, book 8 of The Collapse Series. This book has been very interesting and challenging to me. The original release was canned after Cassidy and company weren't cooperating with WB Publishing. So we got rescheduled and for the first time ever, I'm releasing a book on a Wednesday. (In case you're wondering, I always release books on Fridays, but I'm breaking with tradition, woohoo!) 

After July 20th, I will continue working on Bravo: Blood Road, the second and final installment in Bravo's Saga. 
Bravo will release sometime this Fall, sometime between October and December. The vagueness is because at the moment, the release date is not set in stone. But Bravo WILL be back, I promise. 

I will be taking a one month hiatus from September 12th to October 17th. That's right. I am going to be offline (mostly) for an entire month. But don't worry, I have a good reason for this. I'm getting married on October 1st and honeymooning in Hawaii immediately after. Once I'm back on the mainland, I will return to the apocalypse with more enthusiasm than ever before...if I can pull myself out of the tropical bliss of Kona.

The 9th Collapse novel, State of Allegiance, will release in the late Winter or early Spring of 2017. 
It's too soon to say what the projected release of Allegiance will be, as I haven't even written the novel yet. I'm still putting the finishing touches on book eight, people! *wink* But I will be releasing at least 2-3 novels next year.

In late 2017 or 2018, I will be releasing a standalone novel that will surprise readers. 
Again, it's too far away to give specifics, but I have been sitting on a couple of ideas for a while here that are dying to bubble out of me. Once my soon-to-be-husband and I get our sea legs (or should I say land legs?) after our wedding, I'm going to explore a whole new world of the apocalypse and fiction in general. I'm very excited about this. Wish me luck! 

As always, if you have any questions or comments that you'd like to share with me, you know where to email me: 

Don't ever hesitate to drop a line. I love hearing from readers. 

And on that note, have a great rest of your week!

Fated Memories
Joan Carney
Publication date: April 15th 2016
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Time-Travel

A woman, a war, a vision of the future past…
Burdened with the scars of a tortured childhood and a shattered romance, Kitty is being forced to resign from the dull, anonymous job she’s been hiding behind. With her life in shambles and her friends moving on without her, she jumps at her cousin, Maggie’s, invitation to visit. However, Maggie’s new boyfriend, Simon, has a secret that accidentally hurls the trio a hundred and fifty years into the past. Trapped in the midst of the bloodiest war in American history, the events that unfold will require more mettle than Kitty’s ever had.
Kitty’s hands shook and her vision blurred with tears. It didn’t matter. After having read the short note three times, the words ‘… transfer to the second floor’ had been engraved on her brain. She’d found the letter in her mail slot at the hospital where she worked, just this morning. That’s Richard’s floor! The wound from their breakup still scarred her heart. What do I do now? Quit my job?
The elevator doors opened and Richard Delaney stepped off surrounded by his physical therapy staff, who were tittering at one of his clever quips. Kitty wheeled around, making a beeline for the restroom. She couldn’t let him or those bitchy nurses see her cry. In her haste to become invisible, she miscalculated the corner of the wall and, smacking her shoulder against it, bounced back flat on her ass. Silence washed over the unit as everyone’s eyes turned to her.
Flushed with embarrassment, she scrambled to her feet, faced her audience and curtsied. “I’m here all week, folks, don’t miss the show!” Then she burst through the lady’s room door.
Kitty locked herself in the stall, working to salvage her dignity while dialing her cell phone for her pillar of strength; the one who always knew what to do.
“Ma?” Despite her efforts to control it, her voice still shook.
“Kitten, honey, are you crying? What’s the matter, are those silly boys in school teasing you again? Should I go speak with the principal?”
“Funny, Mom, no I only need to talk to someone. Remember when I told you the hospital makes the ward clerks reapply for their jobs every few years so they can weed out the ones they no longer want? Well, it’s that time again. I got my take-it-or-leave-it offer today and it says they’re bumping me from the step-down unit, to the pits of the med/surg dungeon. If I don’t accept it, I’ll be out of a job. I don’t know what to do.”
“Mom, are you still there?”
“Yes, I’m here.” She blew out a long breath. “Kitty, you’re a smart lady, but if you don’t respect yourself enough to stand up and take charge of your life, you’ll always be at the mercy of others. Remember, the choices we make follow us and decide our fate.”
“I know, Mom, but…”
“The best advice I have for you, sweetheart, is to move home with us so you can go back to college and learn more marketable skills.”
Kitty had battled with them before over this. In her mind, living with her parents at her age was the same as having a big red letter “L” tattooed on her forehead. “I see, okay. Um, I have to get back to work now. I’ll talk to you later, Ma. Thanks for listening.”
As she washed off the mascara tracks from her tears, she studied her reflection in the restroom mirror, mulling over the misery that was her life. You’re almost thirty years old, Kitty Trausch, what have you got to show for it? A man? Not since Richard dumped me last year. A career? More like a crappy job that’s become unbearable.
Kitty remembered her mom’s mantra “When the world gets rough,” she’d say, “remind yourself of the good things you have.” She thought hard for a positive slant, but only came up with her prized closet full of shoes and salvation from her acne plague. Great, at least that and two-seventy-five will get me on the subway. Oh, and one more good thing. Rooming with Sonia allowed her to walk the short distance to the hospital and not have to ride the train from Tuckahoe to Manhattan. Wow, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude.
