The Diamond Bearer's Secret Is Finally Here!

The Diamond Bearer's Secret, book five of The Unaltered series, releases May 15th at 12:01 AM local time. The book is already a bestseller, reaching that status during pre-sale.


In The Diamond Bearer's Secret, Calli Courtnae learns everything she's been through since receiving a diamond has been in preparation for a much larger purpose. An event looms in the future that could end life as she knows it and Calli's assistance with prevention is crucial. However, the Diamond Bearers are dividing at a time they should be uniting. The centuries-old comrades are upset about the young companions joining the ranks. They're unaware Calli can hear their grumblings, and through her, Crimson. The ultimatum still stands: support nature's will or surrender your diamond.

Problems arise over an anonymous blog revealing critical information about people with powers. The blog must be stopped before the secrets of the Diamond Bearers are released. Unfortunately, the powers contained within the Sanguine Diamond don't include the ability to shut down a blog. Only those who understand how the virtual world works can fight against a virtual enemy.

With everything escalating around them, Chris and Calli still find time to get to know each other better. Will they like what they find? What other information will be found within the files from General Harding's compound? The more pressing question is what secrets do Crimson and Maetha keep?


Are you excited about the release of book five? If so, I'd love to hear! Leave a comment below.

 A special note to my readers: Without you, my book series wouldn't have hit the Bestseller lists in seven countries with 250,000 downloads. Because of you and your excitement over the series, I've landed a literary agent who went on to land a Hollywood producer who is currently optioning the series for film. The latest development is book publishers are showing interest in the series.

What am I currently doing? Getting ready to jump in on book number SIX!
Thanks to my readers!

Announcing Book Five of The Unaltered Series

diamond
I'm excited to announce the title of book five in The Unaltered series and the release date.

The Diamond Bearer's Secret

will release on May 15th, 2015.

The news Calli receives at the Diamond Bearer gathering changes the way she views herself and her future. Not only did she learn she's the most powerful Bearer alive, she can now hear other Bearers' thoughts. The grumblings of centuries-old comrades concerning her young age isn't too surprising, keeping the secret that she can hear them is a different matter. The Bearers are dividing at a time they should be uniting to protect the human race. As Crimson stated, "Either continue being an agent of nature or surrender your diamond." Not everyone will choose wisely.

Chris and Calli get to know each other better. Will they like what they find? Will all of the approved Bearers choose to accept a diamond and be defenders of nature? What other information will be found within the files from General Harding's compound? The more pressing question is, what secrets do Crimson and Maetha keep?


On April 2nd, 2015, I'll send an email to my Awesome Fans newsletter subscribers announcing the winner of the Sanguine Diamond replica. If you'd like to enter the drawing, read this post to find out how.

The Unaltered Series Six Months on UK Charts

I'm quite excited to be able to say The Unaltered Series books have maintained their positions on the UK Amazon charts for over six months! All four books have consistently remained ranked under 100 on one or more category's charts. So, here's a HUGE SHOUT-OUT to my UK readers. Thanks for your support.

A Diamond in My Pocket, book one; A Diamond in My Heart, book two; and The Diamond of Freedom, book three, have all reached the #1 position. Book four, The Diamond Bearers' Destiny reached the #3 spot.
The picture shows all four books in the #8, #10, #12, & #14 positions, dated September 4th, 2014. This screen shot is special because book one, A Diamond in My Pocket, is on the same chart as the other four books. Book one is usually free and listed on the Free List. However, for a short time, the Amazon gods switched my listing. They do that from time to time. I was thrilled to have caught a still-shot of the moment.

Also, I'm happy to announce I have my first Diamond Bearer from the UK. A lovely school teacher from England was the winner of my last Diamond Giveaway. Congratulations, Miss Hine!

If you are one of my Diamond Bearers, please send me a picture of your diamond so I can post it on my Diamond Bearers Wall. Cell phone pics work great. You can send it through my Facebook page.
