Release Day for my new series, VIRTUAL ARCANA!

Today, I'm releasing the first book in my new series, Virtual Arcana. 
The Matrix meets The Notebook (with a sprinkle of The Giver). 
Book 0: The Fool is FREE.

It is free on most retailers, so download your copy and give it a try. 
(Even if you don't want to read it, you could still download it for free. It would help my rankings and earn you lots of good karma points. Don't we all need extra good karma points?) 





Virtual Arcana will release serial style, meaning short episodes (averaging 15-20k) will be published frequently instead of waiting months or a year between each long novel.
Each episode will be named after one of the major arcana cards of a tarot deck.
Season 1- Episode List

0- The Fool
1-The Magician
2-The High Priestess
3-The Empress
4-The Emperor
5-The Hierophant
6- The Lovers
It’s an experiment for me as an author and for my readers. If Virtual Arcana develops a good following I’ll continue with season 2 and 3. That would mean 22 total episodes, one for each of the 22 major arcana tarot cards.
Summary of Virtual Arcana:

In a faraway future, Kelsey Zellar is starting her senior year at yet another school thanks to her twin sister’s troublesome obsession with outlawed virtual reality games.


Every school they’ve ever attended is pretty much the same: lunchroom drama, rich kids binging on enhancement candies, and classmates rallying for or against the government’s strict control over everything from entertainment privileges to caffeine consumption.


Unlike her sister, Kelsey follows the rules and keeps her nose out of trouble and politics while sniffing out her next flavored latte and favorite novel. But when Kelsey meets a charming book connoisseur, and accepts his offering of a tarot card, she takes the first step toward two new addictions: the guy of her dreams, and his illegal dealing of virtual escapes into her beloved storybooks.


Kelsey straddles the worlds of fiction and reality, but is she a fool for believing in her own happy ending?
I realize some of my readers don’t/won’t care for episodic storytelling, so of course there will be the option to wait until the first season is complete and read all the episodes straight through as one full-length novel. But I wanted to offer my new series as a serial for those readers who dislike waiting so long to read more.
To celebrate, I'm giving away FOUR ebooks of the second episode: The Magician
I'm also running a second GRAND giveaway that will be open until the last episode releases.  
You can enter to win a signed copy of Season 1 (NOT an ebook, but the real kind with paper pages) AND a custom designed Virtual Arcana necklace. 
(Photo is an example not the actual customized VA necklace.)

Open internationally.

  1. Happy release day, Karen! I'd pick The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster – it's so abstract and I would love to see how it translates into virtual reality (:

  2. Serial style ... that has always intrigued me. We should do an interview on Writer's Alley to explore that topic. I mean, if you'd like. Congrats on the release!
