REMADE DEBUTS ON 9/14
ReMade debuts on Wednesday, September 14th! ReMade is a post-apocalyptic teen drama in serial form--you get an episode a week, just like your favorite TV shows. Their short length makes them perfect for people who just don't have time to read a whole book from cover to cover. Let's face it--life happens. And if it's still too tough to get your reading in, it comes in both ebook and audio formats
If you're interested, you can check out the pilot episode for free and see what you think.
You can also visit the ReMade page and subscribe for the season (and save some cashola and trouble) or buy individual episodes at your leisure.
Episodes come out every Wednesday, and the series is a nail-biter. I knew what was going to happen, and I was still on the edge of my seat when I read the episodes written by the other members of the writing team. My first episode is #3, but you're not going to want to miss any of them!
ANNOUNCING MY NEXT PROJECT: ILLEGAL ALIEN
I wrote a grown up book! With grown ups in it. And aliens, because hey, it's me. I started out writing this book for fun but ended up having so much fun with it that I couldn't stop, and now it's a series. It's about a snarky, middle-aged police detective named Audrey Vorkink--and yeah, I might have inflicted my sense of humor on her. I write a lot faster than the publishing industry moves, so I'm trying out a new thing and self-publishing this series. ILLEGAL ALIEN comes out on October 18th, with the sequel, UNIDENTIFIED FLYING SUSPECT, following in January.
Here's more about the book:
Toledo police detective Audrey Vorkink has a rep for getting things done. She might look like a middle-aged soccer mom (complete with mom bob), but she works hard and unwinds even harder. One night, as she’s meeting with her edgier-than-it-sounds knitting group, a hit-and-run accident turns deadly right outside the building. But something’s fishy about the missing driver, something positively…inhuman.Audrey can run down any criminal, but what if this one’s from another planet?Detective stories meet extraterrestrials (maybe) in this laugh-out-loud novel by Carrie Harris, author of BAD TASTE IN BOYS and DEMON DERBY.
You can preorder an ebook copy here! I also intend to offer physical books as we get closer to the release date.

Aaaaand look at this gorgeous cover, designed by the brill Steven Novak.
Please note that this book is written for adults. It has bad words in it. I made some of them up. That was fun.
SALLY SLICK AND THE MINIATURE MENACE RELEASE DATE!
If you're looking for something a little more kid-friendly, the second book in the Sally Slick series, Sally Slick and the Miniature Menace, hits shelves on November 8th! I love writing Sally because she's such a strong girl character...and it gives me an excuse to watch lots of Indiana Jones movies and pretend it's work. Here's a teaser about the book:
Every hero has a story. Sally Slick’s is just beginning.Sally’s frustrated when she’s shut out of the county fair tractor race, but that’s nothing compared to how she feels when the tractor itself goes missing. When she and her stalwart friend Jet Black track it to the grounds of the Circus Europa, they get more than they bargained for. Sally can handle nefarious cultists, mysterious fortune tellers, elephants on the rampage, and high flying aeroplanes, but a chance encounter with a miniaturized menace will change everything she knows about the world.One small girl can make a big difference.
Ordering information available soon!
And it comes with another great cover, this one courtesy of Dani Kaulakis!
