New Release Updates! Contests and more…

Hope you’re all having a wonderful fall season and staying warm with these freezing temperatures! I got the bug early this year and started decorating for Christmas. I still have the living room and entry to do, but then I’m all set. Yay!!

I’m working away on Beyond Chance and am really excited to share the latest story with you. Brandy and Aaron are in Paris and life’s challenges have a way of following them. Look for Beyond Chance in December. I’ll post pre-order links once I have them. If you heaven’t joined my newsletter, here is the link to do so.The newsletter seems to be the most consistent way of hearing from me on release days. I also just started sending out a friendly reminder on release days via text. As of now, it’s only available in the U.S. Just text KariceBooks to 313131 and you’ll get a text from me once the book is available. 🙂

I shared the Beyond Chance cover in my newsletter and with my Facebook followers and street team, but I realized I better do that here too! This cover holds a special spot because my husband actually took the background photograph while we were in Paris. Claudia at Phatpuppy did her magic using the wonderful “couple photograph” from Teresa Yeh’s shoot we did. The models are Anya Kod and Steve Alario. So lovely! And the typography is done by BB Designs. Hope you like it as much as I do! I’ll be including a little surprise in Beyond Chance about something I’m working on for 2015 too!

There are TWO contests today that you can enter so don’t miss out. One is a rafflecopter  below and the other is by leaving a comment here for a chance to win a $5 Amazon card. Winner will be chosen on the Beyond Chance release day! Pretty easy!

For all the Luke Fletcher fans, I plan to release Buried Sins in early 2015. As of now, Buried Sins will be the final installment in the series. It was planned as a two-book series and I don’t see that changing. But if it does, I’ll let you know. Sometimes stories just have a way of working their way into my mind when I least expect it.

I also wanted to let you know that my YA thriller, The Camp, is on sale this week for only $.99 (reg $2.99)! Emma and Liam’s adventure in the wilds of Alaska was a fun story to write, and I look forward to revisiting their story someday in a sequel… Hope you can check it out while it’s on sale and share with others.

And FINALLY… The Afterworld Tour is happening this week!! And with that, you have the chance to win a $10 Amazon card and zombie pack. Each day there will be several tour stops with reviews and excerpts of RecruitZ and AlibiZ. The Afterworld Series is literally unlike any zombie series out there. Even non-zombie fans enjoy the twists (at least that’s what I’m told!). Still curious? Here are a couple reviews from the tour stops….

RecruitZ Blurb:

Have you tasted fear? I have. It’s bitter and lingers in your mouth long after the moment has passed. That fear kept me alive during the apocalypse. I never stopped moving, and I never gave up hope.

The outbreak is over and vaccinations have been administered, but I’m tasting that fear again. Why? Because the undead have returned, and this time there’s no stopping them or the people who control them. But I refuse to give up.

The outbreak might be over, but the nightmare is just beginning.



AlibiZ Afterworld Series smaller

AlibiZ Blurb:

Rebekah vows to expose the truth behind the RecruitZ that are killing the innocents. These creatures must be stopped, but so should the people controlling them. When Rebekah uncovers who is behind the uprisings, her own life becomes in danger.

Rebekah knows that she is not alone in this fight but vengeance alone won’t help her and the others to victory. It is up to her to uncover the truth for the public before the world is turned over to an elite few.

Regardless of what may happen to her, she knows it’s a race against time to destroy these creatures and the monsters controlling them before there is no one left worth saving.



Whoo…. I think that’s all I’ve got for updates right now! Signing off from the Bolton household.
