New Release: The Legacy Human (Singularity #1) by Susan Kaye Quinn #YA #SF

When transcending humanity is the prize, winning the Game is all that matters.
Seventeen-year-old Elijah Brighton wants to become an ascender—a post-Singularity human/machine hybrid—after all, they’re smarter, more enlightened, more compassionate, and above all, achingly beautiful. But Eli is a legacy human, preserved and cherished for his unaltered genetic code, just like the rainforest he paints. When a fugue state possesses him and creates great art, Eli miraculously lands a sponsor for the creative Olympics. If he could just master the fugue, he could take the gold and win the right to ascend, bringing everything he’s yearned for within reach… including his beautiful ascender patron. But once Eli arrives at the Games, he finds the ascenders are playing games of their own. Everything he knows about the ascenders and the legacies they keep starts to unravel… until he’s running for his life and wondering who he truly is.

The Legacy Human is the first in Susan Kaye Quinn’s new young adult science fiction series that explores the intersection of mind, body, and soul in a post-Singularity world… and how technology will challenge us to remember what it means to be human.

“If I were a movie producer, I would option this in a heartbeat.”
“This story is so intense I felt I couldn’t get a proper breath.”
“Science fiction with philosophical depth.”

New Release: The Telepath Chronicles

The Telepath Chronicles releases today! Don't miss the Facebook Party with TONS of prizes, including Mindjack paperbacks and audiobooks. 

now available
Fourteen of today's top sci-fi writers share stories of the uncanny and unexpected. 

"highly recommend" 
"amazing stories"
 "I just want more"
 "you don't have to read my mind to know how much I truly enjoyed this anthology"

Let me introduce you to Zeph...
The Locksmith (Susan Kaye Quinn)
In a world filled with mindreaders, Zeph is a mindjacker who wants to stay hidden—even if it means the cute mindreader in his Latin class is forever out of his reach. He locks and unlocks minds for a ruthless mindjacker Clan in exchange for protection and the chance to have a normal life with his parents and little sister. But when a girl he doesn’t know reveals the existence of mindjackers to the world, Zeph is forced to make a choice: unlock—and ultimately destroy—the mind of a young jacker changeling… or turn his back on everyone he loves.

The Locksmith takes place in the same world as Kira's story, and unfolds in the time period right at the end of Open Minds, but Zeph walks on the darker side of the world of mindjackers and mindreaders.
For now, The Locksmith is EXCLUSIVE to The Telepath Chronicles!

Want To See Mindjack As A Movie? Show Your Support!

Would you like to see the Mindjack series made into a movie? So would I! I'm apply to the Chicago Film Project to see if we can make that happen. But I'd love to show the CFP people there's support for a cinematic version of Mindjack! 

Click "like" on this FB Post
to show your support for a movie version of Open Minds!

The Chicago Film Project is looking for a Chicago author with a Chicago-set story to turn into a feature film. Ya'll know how much I love indie creative projects - whether by writers, artists, or filmmakers - and the Chicago Film Project goes one step further in growing that art locally. Love it!

Yesterday, I whipped up a pitch for Mindjack, as well as the first five pages of a Mindjack screenplay. Let me tell you: adapting the story to film was way more fun than I thought it would be! And the first five minutes of the Mindjack Movie is quite different from the Mindjack Novel... although, of course, true to the intent of the books. Thanks for clicking through to like my FB post - all your support will help convince the Chicago Film Project people there are readers out there who would like to see this on film!

New Release: Keeper (Mindjack Origins #4)

I haven't published a book for a whopping 2 months, so I figured it was time... plus it's Valentine's Day, and this story is a bit of a mash note to all my favorite Mindjack characters...

a Mindjack Origins novella (#4)
kindle, nook, kobo
Add to your Goodreads TBR 

Keeper (Mindjack Origins #4) - a companion story to the Mindjack Trilogy Seventeen-year-old Kira Moore is determined to be part of the second-chance mission to free her fellow mindjackers from FBI Agent Kestrel's secret prison, but Jacker Freedom Alliance leader Julian believes she's too valuable to risk in the operation.

Keeper is a short novella (12k words or 40 pgs) in the Mindjack Origins series, which are companion stories to the Mindjack Trilogy. Keeper is told from Kira's POV and contains major spoilers for Closed Hearts (and minor ones for Free Souls).

More Novellas To Come: Keeper, Warrior, Viewer Keeper is the first in a planned trilogy of novellas, each from the POV of a different girl character: Keeper (Kira), Warrior (Anna), and Viewer (Ava). They're a complement to the first three Mindjack Origins stories, which are told from the POV of different boy characters: Mind Games (Raf), The Handler (Julian), and The Scribe (Sasha).
I like symmetry. 

If you haven't read Mindjack yet, the first one is FREE... so that makes it easy, right?
(also on audio)

or you can skip ahead and get the trilogy box set
Open Minds, Closed Hearts, Free Souls

p.s. Happy Valentine's Day!

Open Minds Permafree

$2.99 FREE
As I move forward with Debt Collector and other works on the horizon, and as a long-term strategy for my body of work, the idea of having a free work always available appeals to me. Especially one that's been road-tested like Open Minds:
155 Five Star reviews on Amazon
274 Five Star reviews on Goodreads

 Professionally edited and covered, Open Minds has readers young and old, male and female, science fiction lovers and people who never read science fiction, who tell me they enjoy it.

4,600+ people still have Open Minds on their TBR list on Goodreads.

I want to make it easier for them to download and start the series. And easy for readers who have already enjoyed Open Minds to share it with their friends. My hope is they will come back for more of my works, once they get a taste of something they like!

Please share!
