UNBREATHABLE Street Team Sign-Ups

I’m pretty sure you’ve noticed, but I decided to self-publish my debut, UNBREATHABLE – a space opera set on a planet much like Mars. Here’s the cover and synopsis:


One hundred and fifty years ago, Earth was destroyed, and the remaining humans fled to the dusty red planet of Jutaire, where the only oxygen is manufactured, food is scarce, and death strikes often.

When Lissa’s father discovers Earth still exists, she accidentally inhales the toxic air of Jutaire, and in one breath, discovers she isn’t quite human.

Her father hangs for his discovery, and Lissa knows the Chancellors will come for her, for she saw the Earth that night too. With nothing to lose, she sets out to expose the truth. It isn’t long before she meets Julian, a beautiful boy who can breathe the toxic air like she can – and shows her that the Jute, the original inhabitants of the planet, are more tangled in their lives than she knows.

But the Chancellors are only pawns in a greater game – one where the Jute control everything. Worse, the Jute plan to leave Jutaire for Earth, but to get there, they need her. And they’ll stop at nothing until Lissa is in their clutches, even if they kill every human in the process.

The race for Earth has begun.

Now, I may be self-publishing it, but that doesn’t mean this whole journey is my own. I’ve had a tremendous response to my announcement, and a great many supporters already. But I have something more to ask.

Will you join my street team?

Your first question is most likely this: What will I do on the street team?

Simply put, as a member, you will promote UNBREATHABLE. Spread the word online – via reviews, social media, email, wherever – and offline – reach out to booksellers/librarians, leave bookmarks at public locations, talk about it. I like to think of a street team as a book’s cheerleaders. A group I will forever be indebted to.

What do you get in return?

An eARC of UNBREATHABLE. Bookmarks. A place in my acknowledgements. I know they don’t seem like much to some people, but it’s all I’ve got. I will publicly acknowledge you every chance I get.

Here’s the form to sign-up, if you’re still interested. In advance, thank you. Thank you so much.
