#Giveaway Winners & Book 5 Sneak Peek!

HAPPY APRIL EVERYONE! 

I saw the sunshine this weekend! Feels like it rained all last week here in New Jersey. Spring is finally here despite the piles of snow still hanging on for dear life. I'm busy working on a new project I'm calling #WeirdThing. It's about a woman who learns she has magical powers but I'm not calling it magic and she's connected to a man with wings - but don't call him a gargoyle - who needs her power to save him and the entire planet. I still have no idea if it'll work, we'll see!

April is also my birthday month and surprise! You get the gifts this time! First up, a special surprise for all of you, the opening scene from Book 5 MIND: The Vision where we meet Jazara. She doesn't start off in the best of places, but her story is very interesting and I think you'll enjoy her unique journey.


Chapter One
May 2nd 2034

The warmth of the dream enveloping her drifted away, replaced by freezing hard metal and a painful throbbing in her head. It seemed as if she’d been sleeping for days. Taking a deep breath shot darts of pain up her spine. Her first attempt to move confirmed her hands were bound, but her feet were free and shaking slightly from the cold slab she was lying on. Trying to remember what happened had to wait, Jazara needed to know where she was, now.
When she opened her eyes, darkness greeted her along with a soft grunt in the distance. Muted light from behind allowed her eyes to adjust enough to make out a person slumped over, leaning against a gray wall. Pushing passed the agony ripping through her temple, Jazara reached out with her mind to identify the slumped figure and get some answers.
The person’s head lifted.
The room was still too dark to make out any facial features and Jazara learned long ago how cautious she had to be with her powers. Luckily, he brushed his mind against hers, quickly allaying her first fear.
Yes, I am here. What do you remember? He grunted and coughed.
What do you mean? she asked mentally as she surveyed the now visible cell, letting her eyesight fully adjust and the notion they were trapped settle.
Every time they send you back, you tell me you can’t remember, what happened, or whom you saw.
Who cares, uncle? Get us out of here.
I can’t. He lifted his hands slightly to show the same cuffs around his wrists. All my physical powers are muted.
Jazara frowned, that news didn’t bode well for their potential getaway. He always drove, she didn’t have the power to telehop. How did we get here? Last I recall, we were having dinner…
They found the island.
Who? she asked as a jagged shiver scraped up her back.
Before he answered, the creak of a door caught her attention, kicking her defenses into high gear. Her internal temperature increased, enhancing her five senses and readying her muscles for fight or flight.
Jazara never had the chance.
In the next moment, she was in a brightly lit room with four huge lamps hanging from the ceiling. She knew this room.
A shadow crossed in front of her and loomed above looking straight down at her. The lights were too bright for Jazara to see a face.
“What do you want?” she asked, trying to shield her eyes with her cuffed hands.
“Same as before, of course, to see the future.”
“No.” Shaking her head, Jazara scrambled away from the woman, not believing the voice speaking to her, not quite hearing the words either as the fear took over.

“They know we exist. Our time on Earth will come to an end if we don’t stop the experiments, stop the uprising.”

#MIND Freebie and New Release March Newsletter! From @Jennnixon

Well, it feels like spring, almost, doesn't it? The weather has been weird, that's for sure, but it's still a little cold outside, so I've got a present for you!


MIND: The Beginning is Free March 2nd through 6th to help me celebrate the release of BOOK 4 MIND: The Message!!

MIND: The Beginning (Bk1) – Free March 2nd through 6th www.amazon.com/dp/B017M3IJM8

After Dina Ranger loses telepathic contact with her twin brother, Duncan, she breaks into his apartment and stumbles onto a special government unit responsible for monitoring the psychic population. She’s offered a job where she can use her psionic gifts to help people.

Stranded on earth over a hundred years ago, Liam of Shria is searching for a metal needed to repair his ship when he finds Dina inside an alien escape pod and narrowly saves her after she trips the alarm.

As the mystery and their relationship deepens, Liam helps Dina learn the truth behind her abilities while uncovering a plot to rebuild an ancient weapon, exposing dangerous secrets about the alien presence on earth that may change the future forever.

MIND: The Message (Bk4) – New Release on sale March 4th 2017 www.amazon.com/Jenn-Nixon/e/B002BLNBBQ

After years of trying to fit in, Casey Wu made her own path, her own way, working as a private security consultant in New York City. When Casey’s apartment is broken into and she and her mother become targets of powered individuals with ties to her long-missing father, reality is turned upside down as she’s pulled into an exciting and treacherous world she’s more connected to than she realizes.

Former General Theo Struck left the military behind to shore up the strength of the MIND team, worried about the significant emergence of psychic and visitor abilities on Earth. While trying to recover from the trauma he suffered during The Reckoning, and attempting to keep the entire team safe, he learns a mysterious private investigator is tailing him. The moment Theo confronts the powerful descendant sparks fly, but her story, almost too unbelievable to consider, isn’t something he can ignore.

Determined to uncover the truth about her extraordinary powers, Theo agrees to help Casey, and when they uncover connections between her father and a government chip his former unit used on human psychics, their blossoming friendship is tested as the dangerous investigation puts the entire MIND team at risk.

Little secrets always grow up to be big scandals... ASHER Everyone’s got secrets. Dirty little secrets. But not like this. Chloe Carlyle is totally off-limits. The one girl I can’t touch. Her mother is about to marry my dad, her father is in prison for murdering my mom…and I want her more than anything. 

Yeah, I never said this wasn’t fucked up. And things are about to get a whole lot more fucked up. This town has seen a lot of scandals, but this one’s gonna blow them all out of the water… CHLOE A wealthy city like Claremont Bay is accustomed to sinful scandals, but this latest one has shaken everyone to the core. My father has been accused of murdering his mistress, and my mother is marrying the man who put him in prison — Robert St Clair.

He’s insufferable. Intoxicating. Impossibly handsome. I can’t fall for him. Can’t let him get under my skin. I have bigger things to worry about, like my father’s imprisonment, because I’m the only one who believes he didn't kill that woman. So who did? The answer may lie closer to home than I know… Scandal is a full-length bad boy romantic suspense novel. There is no cheating and a happily-ever-after for this couple.

New Year, New Heroes!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Can you believe that 2017 is here already? I have LOTS of great news to share with you this month and an even more special treat for those of you on my newsletter list. Ready?

I have three MIND books scheduled for 2017! That's right, MIND: The Message will be out this March. MIND: The Vision will be out in July and MIND #6 is scheduled for December.

I'm about 70% done with book six with possible ideas for more books in the future.

I'll also be re-releasing the Lucky Trilogy with new covers sometime later this year. So exciting!


As many of you know, I'm a Superhero fan. I've always considered the MIND books my version of Superhero fiction, without the capes. Still, I love a good cape, so I'm super happy to host the SFR Brigades Cross Promo this month. Our theme? You guessed it!


SUPERHERO FICTION 

Check out these SUPER Freebies and 99c Books and share with your friends!

HAPPY DECEMBER!

Today is the first day of winter! Can you believe it? It's been rather cold here in New Jersey the last few weeks, of course, there was a 60 Degree Sunday in there just to tease us! UGH!

I hope you are all ready for the holidays and are spending some time with friends and loved ones. I'll be visiting my mom for the weekend then heading right back to the writing cave to finish up MIND #5 before the end of the year.

That's my goal!!

Reminder: Book 1 MIND: The Beginning is still 99c. I'm trying to boost interest in the series since I have SIX books already plotted in my head!

If you have friends who like Paranormal but say they don't like SciFi suggest MIND to them, I've had a few PNR fans head my way this year! Very cool!


My next book release will be MARCH 2017, Book 4 of the MIND Series, "The Message" featuring a new character named Casey Wu. She was probably one the easiest characters to write in recent memory. Casey leaps off the pages and sucks you right into her world without giving you a chance to catch your breath! I can't wait for you to meet her.


Have you seen the Book Trailer I made? 

I'll be hosting a Release Party on my page for this book instead of the normal Event on Facebook. Changing it up to see how it goes. Make sure you've like my page! https://www.facebook.com/JennNixonAuthor

I hope you all have a HAPPY HOLIDAY and Wonderful New Year. Your support is much appreciated and I'm grateful for every single one of you!

THE MARTIAN KING by Seven Steps
A SLAVE PLANET 2
“A Slave Will Become A King”

ABOUT THE BOOK:

The thrilling conclusion to THE SLAVE PLANET series.

A Brutal Kidnapping.
A Lost Prince.
A Jealous Brother.
A War To End All Wars.

King Haggarty of Mars has always been an ally to planet Zenith and its beautiful Magistrate Embrya. She’s even entrusted him with a powerful weapon: a machine that can destroy worlds. But, what will happen when a crazed Martian named Boikis hatches a diabolical plan to take the power for himself? Teaming with the evil Venian Jun-Su, Boikis goes in search of the man who can hand him the power he’s always dreamed of: Kiln, the Venian.

Following their death defying adventures on Earth, Nadira, Kiln, Lex, and Arees once again find themselves in the gravest of danger. After a brutal kidnapping, Kiln awakes in a Martian prison with a strange man who carries even stranger news:

“I am your brother, and you will be the next Martian king.”

But blood is not always thicker than water. 

With Nadira’s life hanging in the balance, Kiln is forced to impersonate Praxis, the crowned Prince of Mars. Can this former slave play the part of the cocky, dominant, alpha male that the men call Praxis The Immortal? Will he discover his brother’s dastardly plans to dominate the universe? Can Zenith be saved from the blood thirsty Boikis and the power hungry Jun-Su? Can a slave become… A Martian King?

The Slave Planet is a New Adult Science Fiction Interracial (black woman white man) Romance. 

It is a thrilling journey into an alternate history where women rule the world.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Seven Steps
“Let me be that I am and seek not to alter me.”
–William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing.

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. One of my mentors (you know who you are) often reminds me of my first foray into the world of literary fiction. It was a lively story about a bee’s journey to find a pot of missing honey. He says that I have improved since then. I think that he’s right. 
I am a working wife and mother, as well as a devoted owner of a beautiful cat named Rosie. I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, thrifting, and anything that reminds me of my childhood.

October News - MIND: The Reckoning is HERE!

Hi Everyone!

Book 3 MIND: The Reckoning is almost here! Only one more day until the book release and event party on Facebook! Here's the link if you haven't joined yet!


Giveaways will start early in the morning on Tuesday and most will be open for a whole week to give everyone time to enter for a chance to win. Event party starts at 6:30PM EST!

I'll be giving away SIGNED Paperbacks, Ebooks, T-Shirts and Giftcards! Books 1 & 2 will be on sale for a week AND I will also be sharing the cover and book trailer for the 4th Book MIND: The Message, which is already done and slated for a March 2017 release!

Here's a little teaser of MIND: The Reckoning to hold you off until tomorrow! I hope to see you all there. <3 jenn="" p="">
Excerpt:

As Bates bypassed the crafters and artists, the scent of Asian BBQ wafted through the air. He grumbled along with his stomach and hoped a few of them stuck around so he could pick something up on his way out.

"How’s it going?" Dina Ranger asked via his earcomm, jolting him.

"Shit! Forgot I had this bloody thing in," he replied, taking a breath and shutting his eyes for a second.

"Have to get used to it if you want to be in the field...alone."

"Unlike your brother, I need some me time, Sherlock." This time, he chuckled when he felt her brush his mind with calming thoughts. "How’s Lexa? Any change?"

"No, nothing. Never changes. I...just don’t get it."

"Me either," he said with a sigh, quickly putting it out of his mind to maintain his focus. "I just got to the park. I’ll check in before I leave."

"Okay. And whatever has you so hungry bring some back. Talk to ya."

Shaking his head, Bates waited for the static of the comm to fade before pushing farther into the park, eyeing the tables and tents, but mostly their occupants, searching for a face. Miss Takashi had a pretty face, although older now, since the photo from the collective Meta-alien Investigation and Neutralization Department database was almost one hundred years old.

When he neared the end of the first row of vendor tents, he took in the sight of the city across the river, and then found the second and final row of vendors left to search.
He politely declined several offers to purchase various items like candles and potholders, wondering why his ‘blah face’—a term his new friend Kim called his usual stern fa├žade—wasn’t working.


Toward the middle of the second row, Bates slowed, eyeing a colorful booth, shrouded in light purple curtains, and a sign that screamed for attention. When a face-painted toddler, followed by a frantic parent, came running out of the booth, he barely sidestepped out of the way. The parent offered Bates a weary shrug. He nodded politely and carried onward, finally seeing a sign for "Madam Takashi" two booths down.

It's September, already?! #Giveaway #BookBlurb #BookNews

Hi Everyone!

We're winding down the year, can you believe it? I have lots of news to share with you. First, MIND: The Reckoning is in the final editing stages and the ARC for reviewers will be ready soon. Want to be one of the first people to read it? Join the street team: facebook.com/groups/JennsStreetTeam or shoot me an email: jenn@jennnixon.com. The only thing I ask is for your honest review to be posted on release day 10/26 or the day after!!

Here's the cover and blurb to entice you:

Baldwin Bates has only wanted one thing since joining MIND, to take care of his friends and keep them all safe. While the Meta-Alien Investigation and Neutralization Department is busy monitoring an emergence of human psychic and alien activity, Bates takes his first solo assignment searching for a woman who claims to see the future, only to botch it up and let her get away.  

After helping to destroy an alien device called the Transcender, Lexa Quinn wakes from a two-week coma a very different person than she was before. While her abilities grow stronger, her feelings for Bates begin to interfere with the MIND team's mission, putting everyone at risk. Secrets from her past threaten the present and future, forcing Lexa to decide who she is and where she belongs.

When a powerful, ancient enemy lays claim to the Earth and brings his judgment upon the population, Bates, Lexa, and the entire MIND team must do whatever it takes to save the human race before the reckoning is complete. 


Second, MIND: The Message Book #4 is done and getting a cover for Book 3's the release party in October! I'll have the link and more details in the next newsletter so stay tuned.

Lastly, I have a giveaway posted in the street team for MIND: The Beginning reviews as well. All you have to do is post an honest review of Book #1 and copy the link to the pinned post to be entered to win a $5 Amazon gift card. Giveaway is open until the end of the month!
