    The ‘free’ strategy was a good one – it got me on board! I’ve already bought Trinkets #2 and #3, read them both, and can’t wait for #4. I read a LOT, much of it urban fantasy, paranormal romance, etc., and thoroughly enjoy your work.

    • September 22, 2014 9:07 AM

      Yay, Pat! I just put Cupcakes to perma-free at the beginning of July and I was super nervous about doing so. But like you said, I’ve found some great readers with it. Glad you enjoyed reading my version of an urban fantasy, I’m a big, big fan of the genre as well. There’s more coming. 🙂

        I found Cupcakes free in July. Immediately after reading the book, I bought the rest of the series. Then I ended up into reading The Oracle Series. So I’m super stoked for getting into Constructionist! And when I’m done with these (hopefully there is more!!!!) I need to check out the rest of your books!

    September 25, 2014 3:33 PM

    I, too, was lured in with the free book and purchased #2 & #3. I have thoroughly enjoyed all 3 books and can’t wait for the 4th! I also have to mention that Jade’s love of Fluevogs sealed the deal for me! Thanks!

    • September 25, 2014 5:12 PM

      I’ve already been “shopping” for Jade’s new shoes for Dowser 4 🙂 so glad you enjoyed the first three books, Brandi.

        Jumped into the free book bangwagon and loved your book! You had me craving cupcakes through the entire series. 😆 Got the next two and just finished with the 3rd book! When is book 4 set to be out?


      • October 6, 2014 9:35 AM

        Sorry about the cupcake cravings 🙂 But I’m so glad you loved Dowser 1 – 3!! I’m about to release Oracle 1, which is the beginning of a new seres in which you get a glimpse of Jade and company through a different POV. I also have Dowser 4 half-written and I’m hoping you will see it before Christmas.

    I LOVE your books!!! It makes me want some of her trinkets that she makes. I just bought I See Me about 10 minutes ago and can’t wait to start on it! Keep up the good work!!!

    • April 15, 2015 9:53 AM

      Thanks for popping by, Jen! I hope you like I See Me as well, though it is obviously different. Speaking of trinkets … I want Jade’s necklace!!

    This is the best series!!!! I can’t wait for #5!! I’ll keep checking back…lol!!

      Yay! Glad you like the Dowser! If you join the new release mailing list you can be sure not to miss the next in the series. 🙂

  7. June 10, 2015 11:06 AM

    The freebie for first one left me needing the rest, so I bought them all – thank you! 🙂 my partner prefers audio books, any chance that might be happening? I know a few great voice people that might be willing in exchange for cupcakes lol

    • June 10, 2015 11:13 AM

      Hello! I’m so glad you enjoyed the Dowser Series. Author-narrated – GULP – audiobooks are actually in the works. But are going to take me a couple of months because I’m only working on them in the evenings and weekends (after hitting my word count for the day). Audible requires a minimum of five titles from me to open a publisher account. This is because I’m Canadian. USAers and UKers can publish through different route, a single book at a time.

      So yes, audiobooks are coming!! If you sign up for the new release mailing list (link found on the top right of the blog) I promise to send out an email when they are all uploaded and ready.

      Thanks for reading and commenting here!

    I was “lured” in by the first book free as well…I bought the next three and am excited to read number 5 when it comes out!

    • June 29, 2015 11:29 AM

      Nice! I’m been very happy with the results from having Dowser 1 permafree. I’ve found some lovely readers.:) So glad you’ve enjoyed the series so far!!

    I completely inhaled (pun intended) Jade, her cupcakes and her adventures in the Dowser series through Book 5 and loved it. And I See Me was just as captivating. As a bonus, my baking has been more inspired lately, too. Thank you for your awesome books and I can’t wait for the next books in the Oracle and Dowser series!

    • September 9, 2015 12:16 PM

      My baking has been much more inspired since writing the Dowser series as well … often inspiring tears of frustration, say when I discover that my sieve is too tightly woven to strain blackberries … it’s just a bad memory now, I shouldn’t even bring it up. LOL

      So, so glad that you found and enjoyed the dowser and oracle books so much! I was driving around doing errands this morning and I figured out how Dowser 7 ends, I love that! Of course, I have to write at least three more books before I get there … but fun! fun!

      😀 Thanks for commenting here. 😀

    • November 2, 2015 8:17 AM

      Hi Michelle! Just between you and me I’m shooting for a Dec 17, 2015 release date. 🙂 I’ll put up the preorder as soon as I have the book cover. Oracle 2 is with the editor right now, so I’m working on Dowser 6 while I await his notes. Make sure you are on my new release mailing list (top right hand corner of the blog), so you don’t miss the release. But I’ll also announce it here and on Facebook and Twitter. I hope you like it!!

    • November 2, 2015 8:18 AM

    Please HELP!!
    I am literally seconds away from starting Reconstructionist 1 and on the Adept Reading Order notes it refrences “The Graveyard Kiss” Reconstructionist 0.5
    But i cant find it at Barnes and nor do I see it referenced here.
    I don’t want to read out of order. Is this book available somewhere else, like Amazon?

    • February 26, 2017 7:22 PM

      Graveyard Kiss is currently only available on Amazon (kindle). I offered it as a bonus for the preorder for Catching Echoes. The next two shorts will only be available as bonuses for the preorders for the next two Reconstructionist books as well. After which I’ll combine them, and make them available on all platforms.

      Not reading Graveyard Kiss before Catching Echoes will not ruin the novel.


      I hope you enjoy the book!

  20. May 19, 2017 2:40 AM

    Very much enjoying your books, not only the great story telling, but I used to live in Kits before the False Creek development when it was still shrimpers that used to take up the docks. That’s how old I am. Now live in northern Ontario, another mystical magical place. Thanks for your particular brand of magic. Have bought and read every one of your available books in this series, they are my new chocolate.

    • May 19, 2017 6:45 AM

      So glad you’ve enjoyed the books! I’m a fan of setting the stories in places I’ve lived or visited enough to be able to feel I can ground the story there. Hence my obsession with the West Coast. I’m sure I’ll get around to Ontario. I lived in Ottawa for five years of my early teens. 😊 thanks for commenting! Have a lovely weekend!

    Second the kudos on the perma-free strategy for book 1.
    I recently rediscovered cupcakes in my ‘to read’ group, devoured it and have since bought all the assorted books from the cupcakes-oracle-reconstructionist series.
    Love them! So glad to get to know Ķett (insert fangy smiley here).

    • June 4, 2017 8:34 AM

      The Reconstructionist trilogy branches off after Oracle 3. Book 3 should be out this August. So you have three more books (if you are so inclined). Then Dowser 7 will be out later this year. Glad you are enjoying the Adept Universe!!

    I got hooked by the free first Dowser book and have listened through #5 all on Audible. The series is completely addictive. It’s hard to be able to find time to read between work and my 3 year old, so Audible has made your stories accessible during commutes, road trips, workouts, etc. I’ve put #6 (already downloaded!) on hold until I can get to the Oracle story, BUT IT’S NOT ON AUDIBLE. Oh, the horror! Hope it is in the works? I’m excited to know that Dowser 6 is not to be the last. I hope the series never ends.

    • June 30, 2017 1:16 PM

      I’m planning to narrate the Oracle and Reconstructionist series myself, hoping to begin recording this fall. And yes, indeed, Dowser 7 is next (after Reconstructionist 3). I’m so glad you are enjoying the series!!

      Dawn Bytes was only available as a preorder giveaway with book two of the Reconstructionist Series. It will be bundled with the two other shorts and made available on all retailers this fall. But I’ll also be giving it away to anyone who enters the preorder giveaway for the third short story (staring this Tuesday). More info about that will show up in my newsletter and my blog next week.

    Found Dowser 1 in hospital following an accident, your books have seen me through painful nights, a month in hospital and have staved off boredom whilst recovering. A year on, looking forward to Reconstructionist 3 and more Dowser 7, 8 and 9. A big thank you ☺

    • July 29, 2017 3:20 PM

    I must co-sign with other members. I got Cupcakes, Trinkets and other Deadly Magic for free and I have been hooked every since. There is not a single book in the Dowser, Oracle, or Reconstructionist series I’ve missed and I even purchased the mini-book that was a kind of intro to the Recontructionist series. It was a bit hard to find, but once I saw reference to it, I didn’t want to miss anything, so I ended up getting a Kindle account just I could read it. (I’m a die hard Nook girl). Keep them coming! It’s an AWESOME series of series!

    • September 26, 2017 8:44 AM

    I agree! The free book ploy worked! I have read all your books, except the After The Virus”. Can’t wait for 7, 8, and 9.Didn’t get into the shot story bundle,Your work is akin to my liking of the Pier Anthony books that go to the same type of places. Keep up the good work.

    • November 23, 2017 9:17 AM

      So glad you’ve enjoyed the books (series) (etc). The permafree status of Dowser 1 has been a great investment for me, giving anyone who wants it a taste. And only those who are truly interested follow through. 🙂
