If you like sexy, gritty books, or have a person in your life who does, Amazon and B&N have reduced the price of the hardcover version of Haven  just in  time for the holidays! Haven is a young adult book, but is mature, so it will appeal to adults and older teens, including guys because it’s told from a male point of view.

Holiday Gift Pricing (43% off)!

Amazon has reduced the price of the hardcover version to $9.89 (43% off $17.99 list price) and Barnes & Noble has lowered the price to $12.35 (31% off list with an additional 10% for members)

Upcoming Appearances

It was a blast meeting readers on my two-week book tour, but I’m glad to be back home. Thank you to all who came out.

My next appearances will be at Apollycon in Washington DC in March, RWA in Denver, CO in July, and The Origin Event in Austin, TX next November.

About the Book

Kirkus Reviews calls Haven “An exquisitely written tale.” 

“We all hold a beast inside. The only difference is what form it takes when freed.”

Rain Ryland has never belonged anywhere. He’s used to people judging him for his rough background, his intimidating size, and now, his orphan status. He’s always been on the outside, looking in, and he’s fine with that. Until he moves to New Wurzburg and meets Friederike Burkhart.

Freddie isn’t like normal teen girls, though. And someone wants her dead for it. Freddie warns he’d better stay far away if he wants to stay alive, but Rain’s never been good at running from trouble. For the first time, Rain has something worth fighting for, worth living for. Worth dying for.

Haven is available for purchase at all retailers including:
Indiebound | Barnes & Noble | AmazoniBooksGoogle | Kobo

An excerpt along with links for purchase can be found on f the Haven Page.


Haven by Mary Lindsey | Fancast

Love this Haven dream cast from Falling Down the Book Hole!

Falling Down the Book Hole

Haven by Mary Lindsey has a cast full of characters each with their own quirks and qualities that I thought it would fun to create a fancast. I know some of these actors are a little bit too old and some don’t exactly meet the physical descriptions of what is in the book, but they are either what came to mind for me when thinking of the characters and their personalities. I would love to see who Mary Lindsey would cast in the leading roles. Check out my review!

Have you read Haven yet? Who would you cast?

Help Needed Keeping the Balls in the Air

I’m writing three different projects right now in three different genres. I want to single one out and work only on that one until it is finished, but all are critical schedule-wise, and I have so much trouble ignoring the others. It’s that old “grass is greener” problem.

Bouncing back and forth between different worlds and voices is difficult and is possibly not the best way to approach things.

I have so many balls in the air from my writing, to parenting, to taking care of me, I’m worried one of my suspended balls will slip through my fingers and fall to the ground.

How do you do it? Suggestions or tips for organization? Tools you like or use? Methodology that keeps you sane? Let me know in the comments or on social media.
