Six Cover Reveal and FAQ

What is Six about?

What happens when you take away emotions? Take them out of everything. Every decision you make, every relationship you form, every action big or small is devoid of feeling. It sure would make life simple. There would never be a reason to lie, or a concern about trust. There would also never be love, or happiness of any kind. Emmalina (Emma) discovers a whole new, and very forbidden way of living…feeling. Fear. Anger. Sadness. Surprise. Love. Joy. The Six. When she realizes she wants this alternative to the deadly, and hollow fate, it might be too late. She does have some help, with the absurdly handy, and oh-so-handsome Finn, and a wild, foul-mouthed friend named Lana. Understanding emotions is hard. Imagine feeling them for the first time. This is a dystopian romance. Romance and love play a huge role in this story.

My publisher, Eternal Press will be releasing Six November 2013.

If you are a book blogger, reviewer etc…and would like to read Six in advance, drop me a note, I’ll see what I can do.Β 

How is Six different than Escaped and Embraced?

While Six does have paranormal components that are similar to those in Samantha’s world, the novels are completely different. Six is dark. Six is very, very dark. Not only because the setting is a sunless-post-apocalyptic earth, Β but because Emma, the main character is in a very dark place for a lot of the story. While Escaped and Embraced are driven by the crazy things and people placed in Samantha’s world, Six is completely character driven.

With that said, if you pay attention while reading Six some things, places (and maybe people) may seem familiar if you’ve read Samantha’s books. Heck, you may even pick up on some clues on what to expect in the third Samantha Scott book. Six is a stand alone novel. No cliffhangers. I promise.

Um…so Embraced? That ending? When is the next Samantha Scott book coming out?

*No Spoilers* So, about that. It had to happen. It did. While I do have a few different projects on my plate at the moment, the third book should be out next year. It actually has an outline, too! Now, I just have to find the time to write it, and let my publisher decide when they want to release it.

What exactly is on your plate right now? Tell me about the new projects, NOW!

Honestly, Six wiped me out. Emma vivisected me. I was emotionally drained when I finished writing it (no pun intended). Six is also 25,000 words longer than a typical Samantha Scott Novel. I’m stitched up now and currently working on a Contemporary Romance. *Gasp* I know. No magic. Nothing except a bunch of emotions that make everyone act crazy. It may or may not be loosely based on my real life. Watch out, real life friends. No one is safe. (Just kidding.) Also, Finn might have his own story coming down the pipe, too.

Without further hesitation, here is the cover for SIX.

Also, a snippet πŸ™‚

Lana and I perch on the top of the thick fence, our backs to the palace. What we glimpse in front of us has frozen us to this spot.

β€œWhat the fuck is that?” Lana whispers.

It is the abandoned city. Black smoke still rises from the cracked streets. Tall buildings with their tops demolished litter the deconstructed skyline. Up close it looks more tormented than from the balcony at the palace. Creatures that are indistinguishable control the gray atmosphere in every direction I look. Their scaly wings cut through the air as easily as a knife through skin. Small fires rage throughout as far as the eye can see. Life has forsaken this city long ago. My life has been split into two categories at this moment.

Before and after.
