Yes, you read that right, folks! The Becoming: Under Siege, book four in The Becoming Series, is now available for purchase from major e-Retailers!
It has been almost two years since the Michaluk Virus outbreak began, and Remy Angellette has helped her friends establish Woodside, a walled-in community of survivors in South Carolina. But underneath the veneer of simplicity of their day-to-day lives, not all is as it seems. Dr. Derek Rivers, a former CDC scientist who was involved in the virus’s testing, has come close to a cure for the virus, and he’s used it to cure Ethan Bennett—who promptly begins to show strange side-effects from the cure. Despite her pleas, Derek delays giving the cure to Remy, who has found herself beginning to dance a fine line between sanity and madness as the virus continues its relentless attack on her brain.
When Dominic Jackson smuggles Remy out of the community on a supply run and brings back a set of twins that they’ve rescued, hundreds upon hundreds of infected follow them back to Woodside. Within hours, the community is besieged by the infected, who attack the main gates and slowly begin to surround the community. Desperate to get the cure and all the information about it out of Woodside before the infected get in, two members of the community pack the doctor’s samples and notes and slip out of Woodside to search for a still-operational CDC facility—but not before Remy steals a dose of the cure and injects herself with it.
As the community’s gates collapse under the assault from the other side, one of the community’s members manages to get in touch with the military, begging them for assistance before they all end up dead. But will they be able to survive until the military shows up to help them—or will they end up dead at the hands of the infected after nearly two years of survival?

I feel horrible about not having updated here on my blog since September (geez, that’s embarrassing), but in my defense, I’ve had a heck of a lot going on! And some of it is great news that I can share with you guys!
First up! I have officially signed a contract with Permuted Press for The Becoming: Under Siege, The Becoming: Descent, and The Becoming: Redemption! I’m not 100% sure when these books will be released, but Under Siege is pretty much done (pending tweaks suggested by my beta reader), and it will be going to the publisher by February 1st! So there’s a possibility you’ll get a brand new book in the series later this year!
Related to the series, I’m currently putting together The Becoming: Origins. Rather than just releasing a single novella like I was going to do at the end of last year, I decided to hold off on it a bit and release a collection that will have at least two novellas / long stories and a short story or two in it, all bound together so you get your money’s worth. 🙂
My agent officially has The Unnaturals on the market, so if any publishers happen to be reading this and are interested in a covert-ops urban fantasy series, do hit me up via email and I’ll direct you accordingly.
In real world things: I have a book signing and lunch talk at the Demopolis Public Library in Demopolis, AL on Friday, January 24th! If you’re in the general vicinity, feel free to drop in at noon for the Lunch and Learn at the Library program, and if you can’t make it to that, I’ll be doing a book signing in the same location from 4-5pm that same evening. 🙂 You can find more details on it here.
I’ll have a more thorough update later, but I thought I’d drop all the fun, exciting news in a separate post. 🙂
