Help me make Mirror Image free!

Hi, everyone. I need your help! I'm trying to make Mirror Image perma-free and Amazon needs some persuasion. What I need everyone to do is go to the Amazon link and scroll down to where my author bio is. Right above is a link that says 'tell us about a lower price' and report Mirror Image free from Smashwords , Kobo and Barnes and Noble. I appreciate your help! Doing this once a day should help Amazon reduce down within a month or so. Thank you!

*update* also use iTunes and Indigo to report.

As a thanks, I'm giving away a free copy of the paperback. Enter here:

Happy birthday, Mirror Image!

Mirror Image is now two years old! Midnight Rose Publishing is celebrating with a brand new cover and updated synopsis!

Madison Mackenzie Rhodes has a comfortable life with a daily routine. When her life is disrupted by an unexpected stranger, she learns there is nothing typical. Her entire world is turned upside down when she finds out that she is a clone, created to hide the secret that we are not alone in this galaxy. Her counterpart, going by the nickname Mack, works for the Intergalactic Security Commission, which works with a coalition of other planets that protect each other and create technology. As if that wasn’t enough, she can’t stop thinking about John Brooks, one of Mack’s teammates. When an enemy rises from within the ISC that targets both Maddie and Mack, they must work together to save their lives as well as the planet.

With everything changing, and now with her heart involved, saving the world might be the easiest part of it all.

Well, what do you think of the new cover? Mirror Image is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble for $.99.

Also have big news! The first two books in the Amethyst Chronicles are now available together in paperback! Amethyst Chronicles: Vol 1 is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for $13.99.

Multiple Universes

The older I get, the more I contemplate the multiverse theory. For those not familiar (or maybe don't watch Family Guy) a multiverse is the hypothetical set of finite and infinite possible universes, including the universe in which we live. It's pretty popular in sci-fi. The idea of parallel or alternate universes. My lovely friend Liza (and fellow writer) believes in it and the more I talk with her and research, I am starting to as well.

So if meta-universe is real, that means that for every action I have done on this earth, there is another me in another dimension that has done the opposite. There's a me that joined the Air Force straight out of high school. There's a me that never moved out of Charleston. That me settled for a man because she was ready to be a mother. She's probably working as a sports massage therapist. But this is the multiverse. She may not have gone to college for massage therapy at all. There may be another me that didn't drop out from her business degree. There's a me that went to New York after high school, found a voice coach and worked to get on Broadway. Or a me that decided to become a teacher.

In so many of these scenarios, my life is so completely different. How would I be? Would I be more or less the same me? Would I feel complete? Am I happy? I feel like the basis of these questions make for great fiction. Hundreds of thousands of stories have been created off of these questions. I even touch a bit on it in my Mirror series.

Everything happens for a reason. If I hadn't left South Carolina, I never would've met my husband. It's hard to imagine me being happy with anyone other than him. Each of the above scenarios wouldn't have resulted in me becoming an author either. But still, the mind wonders to the other possibilities.

Have you ever thought about what the parallel you is doing right now? If the other you is doing something you wish you were, maybe you should think about changing that. Be the best version of yourself. Now. Not in other dimensions.
