Greetings Monster Hunters. 

In the summer of 2012,  I set out on a journey to self publish the first book in a new teen series--Matt Archer: Monster Hunter. I had no idea how it would be received, and if I'm honest, I wasn't sure I'd be able to publish more than one. But, with a loan from my dad and the gift of time and support from my husband, I decided to give it a try.

Fast forward to today and the series is four full-length novels and a short novella strong. I've been amazed by the awesome reviews, the encouragement and the (sometimes rabid) Matt Archer fans out there. I get threatened with duct tape (you know who you are!) on a regular basis to write faster, faster, faster! 

If you haven't read the series, book 1 (Monster Hunter) is currently being released in serialized format on Wattpad for free. Of course, the entire series is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo as well. Monster Hunter is only $0.99 in eBook format.

With the end of the main series approaching (hmm, did I just leave a hint?), there's one piece where I could really use your support. I'd love to create audio books of the series, but I have limited time and I need to spend it writing (see the aforementioned duct tape : D). I simply haven't been able to get this off the ground on my own, so I'd like to ask for your help in bringing Matt Archer into the audio book world. If you could chip in, I'd be forever grateful. 

Oh, and beware of monsters!!

P.S. (In the video you can see a figurine of my muse...see if you can spot her!)

Risks and challenges

I hope to have all the short stories completed by September 2014, but depending on my schedule after the release of MA5, they might take a bit longer. In addition, I can't totally confirm the date of the audiobook release, as that's dependent on my vendor.
