The Cover of The Devil Particle

Big News — the release date for The Devil Particle is June 6th, 2023!

But, you can read it sooner! How?

By becoming an ARC reader.


What’s an ARC reader?

Authors and publishers send Advanced Reader Copies of books (ARCs) to readers in exchange for honest reviews on Amazon once the book is released. Early reviews are vitally important to the launch of a new book and I’m hoping to get as many as possible. That’s why I am giving away these free advanced copies. 

The ARCs are books which are not yet finalized. Because of this, ARCs are not available for resale — they’re for the reviewer’s eyes only. You might find a few typos or grammatical errors (and if you do, please be sure to let me know).

If the idea of writing a review seems daunting, keep in mind it doesn’t have to be long. A paragraph or two with your honest impressions is enough. You can discuss the characters or the plot or whether you’d recommend the book.

The Devil Particle is a 316-page young adult dystopian thriller and is the first in a series. Adults will love it, too!
