THE DARK DUET HAS BEEN OPTIONED FOR A TV SERIES!!!

The news was first released on Maryse’s Book Blog. I’m incredibly grateful to Maryse and her blog whose post about Captive in the Dark in early 2012 led to over a thousand sales in a single night.

The road ahead is going to be arduous and I’d like to ask for your continued support as we try to make this TV series a reality. A lot can happen between now and selection by a network. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, help make this happen by sharing the news, posting reviews of the books, and encouraging everyone to
