UPRISING (Children of the Gods #2) News!

Hello out there! Sorry it's been a while. First (for those of you on baby watch) our little guy is still a bun in the oven. 14 days left...yikes. Second (for those of you on book watch) I have some good news and bad news about the upcoming release of UPRISING (Children of the Gods #2).

The bad news...

Okay, don't hate me (because I realize this is so very NOT cool) but I've talked to my publisher and we've decided to postpone the release of UPRISING until May 28th. I'll be having my first baby in mid January and realized that a February release is just too close to the start of baby madness. I have no idea what life will be like with a 4-week-old, but something tells me that I won't be all there in February. SORRY people!!

The good news...

Because I feel really really bad about postponing the release, I'm hoping to make it up to you! On February 19th (the original release date) I'll make sure to post the first chapter right here on my blog. Also, I'll be doing a giveaway or something like that along with it :)

Some other good news...

Although the official release date won't be until May 28th, my publisher will be distributing a limited amount of ARCs to bloggers. I can't guarantee that you'll get an ARC, but if you sign up below and make a good case, I can hopefully get you on their list.

For those of you who'd rather READ IT RIGHT NOW, I've been given the go-ahead to send out the initial PDF version of the E-ARC to a limited number of people who have hosted me on their blogs or reviewed the first book, bloggers who have significant followings, and/or who are willing to spread the word. If you'd like the PDF version of the E-ARC, feel free to sign up below (again, I can't guarantee everyone will be approved to receive the E-ARC. I'm only allowed to give out 20-30).

Please Note: The PDF E-ARC version is not the final version and nothing is to be quoted from the PDF without reference to the final edition. - per ZOVA Books


  1. No worries about delay! Looking forward to it! You're just building up the suspence!!!!

  2. That's all right - sounds like a good reason to delay.
    Hope you had a good Christmas.

    1. Thanks Alex! My Christmas was awesome. Hope yours was great, too!!

  3. We understand! :) Baby comes first.

  4. Awe, boo for the delay of the baby!! But we're good on waiting for Uprising, he comes first, always ^_^ I hope you've had a great Holiday Jessica and Happy New Year!


  5. As much as I'm bummed, I totally understand. The baby should be getting all the attention one requires and you are totally going to be living in baby land when it comes.

    Thank you so much for giving the chance to read Uprising beforehand though, I'd be honored if I got approved. I loved Oppression and I will totally be re-reading it in January. Yay.

  6. We stumbled over here by a different web address and thought I might check things out.

    I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to looking over
    your web page again.
