The Heartbeat Thief: Giveaway and Quickie Sale

The paperback is nearly here... The Heartbeat Thief will be available in print on Friday, September 18, 2015!

This week, The Heartbeat Thief is sponsoring a giveaway over at The Kindle Book Review. Enter to win an Amazon gift card... and take advantage of the impromptu 99 cent sale to get a copy (or gift one to your best friend.)

Here's a new 5 star review from someone who was deeply touched by the story... she had to put it down and walk away because she became quite emotional. (She couldn't stay away for long, though.) Read her thoughts and find out why she found it so powerful.

Upcoming book tour!
To celebrate the paperback release, we'll be embarking on a week-long blog tour. Join us for interviews, guest posts, and reviews! Tour details will be posted soon. Have a great week!

September already?! Good news & a great sale

I can't believe it's September already. I look around my yard and think about all those ambitious plans I made...for June. lol Let's just call it #yardfail and move on.
One thing that did get done, however, was the launch of my latest novel, THE HEARTBEAT THIEF. It released on Kindle in June and zoomed to bestseller status (something that blow my mind.)  And the good stuff just seems to keep happening...
The Heartbeat Thief audiobook (2016)

First off, the paperback version will be available on September 18. If you like to hug books in between reading them, then you'll get your chance for some physical book love in only 10 days or so. There will be a week-long book tour the following week so watch out for guest posts, interviews, and giveaways (as well as pictures from my upcoming trip to Boston to see all the Edgar Allan Poe attractions. Calloo callay!)

Secondly, I can finally announce that the audiobook version of The Heartbeat Thief will be coming in 2016! It will be produced by Hannah Platts. If you check out her voice reels on her website, you will get an idea of what Senza Fyne is going to sound like.
on sale for 99cents on September 6 & 7...

Because I want to celebrate all the wonderful things that are happening this month. If you haven't yet read The Heartbeat Thief but love print and audio books, you can pick up the ebook for less than a dollar before making the commitment to a pricier format.

Hope you'll stop by the upcoming blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours. They did such an amazing job hosting the Kindle release and I knew I had to get their help for the paperback release. Details coming soon!

Until then, grab a 99cent novel and dream about hugging print books and listening to Senza's tale and all sorts of Poe in Boston goodness :) I know that's exactly what I'll be doing...

Release Day! AG Henley's "The Gatherer: A Brilliant Darkness Story"

ebook, kindle, dystopian YA, fantasyTHE GATHERER by AG Henley

Alev is proud to be a Fire Sister, one of a fierce group of women who live in a flaming mountain compound called the Cloister. The Sisters live without men, so Alev Gathers young girls to replenish their numbers. After she plucks young Kaiya from the remote village of Koolkuna, the girl’s father follows them into the wilderness. Alev keeps him at bay, but over time she suspects that this man, at least, isn’t the monster she was taught all men are. 

When Kaiya's father manages to reach the Cloister, the Sisters want to put him to death. Alev can look the other way, or she can heed the growing whispers of her heart to help the girl and her father escape. But to defy the Fire Sisters is to revoke the only life and family Alev has ever known—and to face certain death herself. 
THE GATHERER is an exciting 50-page prequel novella in the young adult fantasy Brilliant Darkness series. The first novel, THE SCOURGE, was a finalist for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award. Two novels and two short stories are currently available. The final novel in the series, THE FIRE SISTERS, releases September 25, 2015. 

READ CHAPTER ONE at the Infinite Ink Authors website!

Recommended series reading order: 
THE FIRE SISTERS (coming September 2015) 

A.G. Henley is the author of the bestselling BRILLIANT DARKNESS series. The first book in the series, THE SCOURGE, was a finalist for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award. She is represented by Caryn Wiseman of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency.

A.G. is also a clinical psychologist, which means people either tell her their life stories on airplanes, or avoid her at parties when they've had too much to drink. Neither of which she minds. When she's not writing fiction or shrinking heads, she can be found herding her children and their scruffy dog, Guapo, to various activities while trying to remember whatever she's inevitably forgotten to tell her husband. She lives in Denver, Colorado.

Katie French releases The Brothers (Breeders 4)!

“They tell me it’s for the good of humanity. That I’m saving our way of life with my body. They lie.” 


The Brothers: Book Four in the award-winning, best-selling Breeders series. 

Riley has survived madmen, deranged doctors, and false prophets. Her next task is uniting her family, which has been ripped apart by Nessa Vandewater, the Breeders’ enforcer. Her boyfriend Clay and brother Ethan are still missing. Only she can find them. 

But on her way, Riley is stung by a scorpion. To ease her suffering, Auntie Bell shares the story of Riley’s mother, Janine, and how she escaped the Breeders. 

Nearly twenty years in the past, Janine, an obedient Breeders girl, is nearing her seventeenth birthday, and the clock is ticking. She has two months to become pregnant, or she’ll be put out, sold into slavery . . . or worse. When her doctor informs her she’s infertile, she’s devastated. But some doctors lie, and one in particular seems to want Janine for his own . . .
Breeders 1 will be free from Thursday August 6 until the following Monday. Look for big savings on the other installments!

Katie French imagined herself an author when her poem caught the eye of her second grade teacher. It was about birds and frankly, it wasn't very good, but it sparked a love of literature.  In middle school she spent her free time locked in her room, writing her first young adult novel. This thoroughly solidifying her status as a class A nerd. She currently works as a high school English teacher, a job that she loves even when it exhausts her. In her free time she writes, reads great books, and takes care of her two beautiful and crazy children.  She is represented by Amanda Luedeke of MacGregor Literary. Her young adult best selling series, The Breeders, is available now on Amazon.
