Announcing The Forest of Forever Official Soundtrack


It's been an amazing ride for me these past few months. The Forest of Forever was chosen as one of the first Kindle Scout books back in November, and today is its official release.

The reviews are starting to pile up and they've been amazing: "I was hooked from the first page," "All I can say is WOW," "A must read!" "The start of another great series," "The perfect blend of paranormal, suspense and mystery," "Dark urban fantasy at its best."

You can find out what everyone's talking about here. But I've also decided to try something new and release the official soundtrack to The Forest of Forever. I was inspired by my friend Melissa F. Olson, who makes playlists for her novels, which you can check out here.

I've made The Forest of Forever soundtrack into a playlist that you can access on Spotify here. (Signing up for Spotify is free and you can use your Facebook account to log in.)

If you'd rather check out the individual tracks, I've posted them below with links to Amazon Music. Like a movie soundtrack, each selection is chosen for a reason, either for the atmosphere it created or, more likely, a connection between the lyrics and an event in the book. It's also just a great mix. Take a listen!

The wait is over! Welcome to The Forest of Forever…

The Forest of Forever has finally arrived!

After five months of waiting, The Forest of Forever is out for those who voted for it through Kindle Scout. Voters should have received an e-mail from Amazon this afternoon alerting them to the book’s release and including a link to download it.

If you haven’t received the e-mail and don’t remember whether you voted for the book, go to this link: https://kindlescout.amazon.com/activity. If The Forest of Forever is on your list, you should be able to download it from that page.

If you didn’t get a chance to vote, you can pre-order The Forest of Forever here. Better yet, you can get it for half price if you enter this code before you buy: SCOUTONE. But hurry, that code can only be used once and expires soon! The Forest of Forever will officially go on sale on March 24 to the general public. 

(Note: To take advantage of the code, don’t click the “Pre-order now” button on the right hand side. Look below the “Give as a gift” button to find a link to enter a code, enter SCOUTONE, and you should be able to then buy the book for half price. And feel free to share the code with friends whom you think might like the book. It’s a great deal and I want to share it as widely as possible.)

If you like the book, please, please leave a review! The success of The Forest of Forever depends on the reviews it receives, particularly those in the next few weeks as it officially launches. 

That’s it for now. I’m very excited to finally release The Forest of Forever and I hope you’ll love it. But be careful—once you enter, you may never leave…
