The Remnant Exclusive Content – New Character Reveal



Hey everyone!

While I’m working away at getting book 2, The Remnant, to you I thought I’d take a little break and give you a little glimpse into a new character in the book 🙂

Here it goes…

We meet young Christopher Lackland through Kesil (yes Kesil), though this 15-year-old is nothing at all like our fellow in distress. No, not at all. Christopher is super intelligent, loves technology and computers and physical exertion is definitely not on his priority list.

At 15 he can probably test out of high school if he wants to. He’s pale with dark-blonde hair that is constantly in his eyes, which are light blue and behind glasses. Freckles dot his thin face. He moves too slowly for most, taking his time getting anywhere but also enjoying the view along the way.

He’s the kind of friend you want to have, even if his jokes are always quirky and rarely funny. He knows how to laugh at himself and when to let up. He enjoys life as much as he can, even in difficult times.

You can expect to see Christopher in The Remnant but also really get to know him in book 3.

I can’t wait to share the next part of this adventure with you guys! Stay tuned for details about beta-readers and my super-awesome-huge-fun online release party! I’ve got several authors on board already and many, many, many great prizes to celebrate the release of The Remnant in March 2017!

Until next time readers,

Happy reading 😉


Book 2 Title and Character Reveal





And thank you Ollie for sleeping the whole time!

I just had some undivided, quiet, focused time to hash out book 2. (Thank you Dad for watching Em!)

I am EXCITED! So I thought I’d share some excitement with y’all. Here it goes:

The title of book 2 is officially: The Remnant


Working hard in my writing cave…it’s not really this dark haha

Did you get goosebumps? Oh God is good and He has inspired a thrilling story in my heart I can’t wait to share. In fact, I think I can share a little bit about a new character without giving too much away 😉

Mark Jacobson

Recognize that last name? That’s right, he’s related to Phil! Mark is Phil’s cousin and he won’t just be making an appearance in The Remnant. Mark is a new character you will get to connect with and love along with Chrissi, Phil, Lesia and Kesil. He joins the group in their search for Kesil and lends quite a bit of wisdom and knowledge to their journey with King Roi. See, Mark’s parents are the aunt and uncle we are told about in The Reconciling. Phil loves when they visit because they share stories from the Book, tales of the legendary King Roi and hope of his return.

Growing up, Mark has heard the same and he, himself has a new name! So Mark is coming to live with Phil as his parents are going to another a country for awhile. They want Mark to finish school (he’s in the same grade as Kesil, let’s hear it for those seniors!), not to mention where they’re going is a little dangerous.


On to prologue and chapter 1!

I hope that peaks your interest as much as mine! I can’t wait to get to writing this week.

Signing out and digging deeper into my writing cave. Wish me luck!

Many of you are wondering about book 2 in the trilogy. I’m working on it! I promise. My hope and prayer is that it is ready this year, but I cannot make that promise. I just had my second baby on April 11 and am adjusting to life as a mom of two under two. It is fun, joy-filled and difficult.

But I am excited and inspired to share the next part of Chrissi’s journey with y’all (I’m Texan remember 😉 ). I may post some snippets from book 2 here on the blog along the way too, so stay tuned!
