GoldShimmerCover150x232Answering a couple of questions about GOLD SHIMMER…

Q: Why does GOLD SHIMMER feel familiar?

A: If you’ve read the previous three books in the IN THE SHADOWS series and you get a sense of déjà vu when you first start reading GOLD SHIMMER…that’s because the first 30 or so pages of GOLD SHIMMER are of the masked party that you read about in MISTER BLACK…only this time you are reading it from Cass’s point of view (and her love story with Calder) versus Talia’s love story with Sebastian. In this part of the book you not only get the beginning of Cass and Calder’s story, but you also get to see things that happened between Sebastian and Talia that you didn’t know in MISTER BLACK (for those die hard Sebastian fans!). Then you move forward in time reading Cass and Calder’s love story throughout the rest of the book. See buy links for GOLD SHIMMER here: iBooks |Amazon | B&N | Kobo | uk 

Q: Can I read GOLD SHIMMER without having to read books 1-3 first?

A: Absolutely you can read GOLD SHIMMER without reading books 1-3 first. Though I have a feeling you’re going to want to read Sebastian and Talia’s story after meeting them in GOLD SHIMMER! :) The good news is you can get book 1, MISTER BLACK, for FREE on the on-line retailers.

Q: You mentioned that GOLD SHIMMER is a novel in the BLACK SHADOW duet, but then you also said it’s part of the IN THE SHADOW series. Can you explain?

A: That’s correct. GOLD SHIMMER is the first book in the BLACK SHADOWS duet featuring Cass and Calder’s love story. There is one more book coming to SteelRushCoverOption5_400x618complete Cass and Calder’s story, STEEL RUSH, which releases Jan 26. The BLACK SHADOWS duet falls within the IN THE SHADOWS series as books 4 and 5 chronologically, but as I said, their story can be read as a stand alone if you wish. The first three books in the IN THE SHADOWS series: MISTER BLACK, SCARLETT RED and BLACKEST RED tells Sebastian and Talia’s love story.

To check out all the books in the IN THE SHADOWS series, here are the buy links to the different retailers. Note: STEEL RUSH is currently available for PREORDER on iBooks.
