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!

DETAILS
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?

p.s. Happy Valentine's Day!

Open Minds Permafree

$2.99 FREE
Always
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!

If you've been meaning to pick it up, now's the time! 
When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.

Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can't read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can't be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf's mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she's dragged deep into a hidden underworld of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.
