A DIAMOND IN MY HEART now an Amazon #1 Bestseller in the U.S. and the U.K.!

Exciting news to share with you. A Diamond in My Heart, book two in The Unaltered Series, recently topped the charts in the U.K., reaching number one in the metaphysical genre fiction category. Previously, the book hit the U.S. number one slot in fantasy anthologies.

Downloads for book one, A Diamond in My Pocket have also skyrocketed in the U.K., following the release of the newly edited manuscript released on June 28th, 2014. Books three and four, The Diamond of Freedom and The Diamond Bearers' Destiny, have hit the top ten in the metaphysical genre fiction category in the U.K.

I'm incredibly grateful to my readers and to those who have given my books a chance. You are helping me achieve my dreams . . . and hopefully you felt the read was entertaining and worth your time.

I hope you'll check out The Unaltered Series forum and say "Hi." I'd love to hear from you!

The Unaltered Diamond Series Almost Ready For Print



Even though my Kickstarter campaign didn't reach success, I'm still moving forward with my goal to print The Unaltered Series. At last count, just over 160,000 total downloads of the four books combined have taken place since May 2011 (the majority coming from book one because it's a free book available on Kindle, Nook, iBooks, and many other formats.)

My goal is to print all four books and send sets to school libraries so more teens and preteens can have the opportunity to read my books for free. Not everyone owns a digital device to read ebooks. Some people simply prefer physical books over digital ones. This is one of the biggest reasons I want to provide school libraries with a set of the series at my cost. If you'd like your school library to be added to the list to receive the series, leave a comment below naming the school, city, and state.

Let's put A DIAMOND IN MY POCKET into print!


Hello to my readers and supporters! The long awaited milestone is about to happen . . . getting book one, A DIAMOND IN MY POCKET, put into print.

I'll be launching a Kickstarter.com campaign beginning on (or shortly after), February 18th. Once the campaign launches, I'll post the link on this blog. The goal amount of $6,800 will make it possible to pay for the professional edit, layout expenses, cover art, and printing expenses. I've put together some way-awesome incentive packages to entice you to consider becoming a funder. 

For example: At the $35 dollar level, you can get a 2 1/2" crystal Sanguine Diamond replica. 

At the $50 dollar level, you can get a diamond replica and a first-edition print copy of A DIAMOND IN MY POCKET. 

There will be various levels of funding to choose from, each with some type of swag for you. 

I want to give you something to look back upon and be able to say "Wow--I worked with that writer when she was just getting started."

Even though my books have been out for a couple years, the momentum is just beginning to take off. Now that all four of the books are complete, putting them into print, beginning with book one, will make them available to more readers.

I'm sending out great-big-virtual hugs to everyone who has supported me so far. THANK YOU!

THE DIAMOND BEARERS' DESTINY is now available!

Happy Release Day!!

In the Amazon Bestselling final installment of The Unaltered Series, Calli learns about Chris's motives behind the recent events, and tries to understand his dilemmas, while at the same time she learns what the big picture actually is, and where she fits. 

General Harding figures out what lies at the heart of Agent Alpha's research project. He's determined to complete the studies and become an all-powerful Diamond Beareronce Chris delivers Calli to him. What General Harding fails to understand is that Diamond Bearers are not the most powerful individuals on the face of the earth. They are agents of nature, working for Crimsonthe creator of the Sanguine Diamond. Upsetting the balance of nature is the last thing General Harding should do.

Follow Calli, Chris, Brand, and Crimson in the dramatic conclusion of The Unaltered Series as they battle Deus Ex, undead Healers, and General Harding, in an effort to balance nature.

Suzanne G. says:  ". . . massive amounts of originality & imagination, swirled in with all the intrigue, suspense, romance, and mystery.  . . ."
