Pre-order now before March 23rd! Adverse Effects with Dreamspinner Press

Has it been forever? It feels like it, right?! But it's finally available for pre-order, and I can share the AMAZING cover done by Christine Griffin for Dade's story.

Available for Download March 23rd
Dade, human-Caeorleian hybrid and ex-military grunt, doesn’t fit in—not with humans, not with aliens, not anywhere. He’s always on the outskirts, angry, and people aren’t sure they can trust him. When he encounters a compatible tziu named Yaseke, secrets, misunderstandings, and attacks nearly prevent the two from making a connection Dade sorely needs. Even after they unite, Dade and Yaseke face challenges that two newly joined males should never have to endure.

From traitorous council members, to sadistic aliens who plan to sell them as slaves, to meeting a mysterious race of revered aliens called Collectors, Dade and Yaseke manage to stay together—and even rescue two youths related to Yaseke, who’ve lost their parents to the same betrayer.

Someone from Dade’s past is at the root of everything he’s suffered. No way can he let them get away with what they’re planning, but Dade isn’t sure he can stop them on his own. If he doesn’t let go of his isolation and risk the pain letting others in will bring, he’ll never save Caeorleia in time.

I'm setting up some blog tours for pre- and post-release day! I'll be offering several prizes including: The Experiment eBook, The Experiment audiobook, and The Experiment signed print copy (print copy limited to US shipping addresses) as well as (1) $10 and (1) $15 gift card to Amazon or All Romance eBooks--winner's preference.

    1. Thanks, Dreamseeker! Me too! I've been wanting to share that cover for so long. Yaseke turned out perfect.

  2. Loved Yaseke's eyes, but thought would see more of his isitsui on arms where visible. Looks more human than Dade. (sorry, but still loved cover). Looking forward to release and tours. Great job and can't wait!

    1. No worries! :D I'm glad you like the cover anyway, though.

  3. WaHoo! So happy for you!! Can't wait to get it!

  4. On the cover, Yaseke is so much more fierce than I imagined. Very good cover, congrats!

    1. I always felt that he was very fierce about Dade's well-being, from the beginning when he decided he wouldn't do anything that would make Dade lose trust him to the end when he was willing to take on... well, you know since you read it and I don't want to spoil for those who haven't yet!
