FATED Tour Dates, Reviews, & an Exclusive short story!

Hey Everyone-

Lots of exciting things happening today, so without further ado, here goes . . .

First up--the trade paper back version of NIGHT STAR (book 5 in THE IMMORTALS series) is in stores today!

Also, reviews for FATED (book 1 in THE SOUL SEEKERS series) are coming in, and I'm thrilled to share them with you:

Publisher's Weekly said:
“Noël’s story is nicely paced and well-written . . .Noël’s many fans will be eager to find out what happens next. “

RT Magazine give it 4.5 stars and made it a Top Pick, saying:

“Noel has done it again! With fantastic characters and an amazing plot, this book will suck you in and leave you breathless. . . Noel is a master with words, and readers will realize anything is possible in her world. With passion and thrills around each corner, this book is a must read.”

And over at Dark Readers they said:

All I can say is this book is amazing. I bet you've read a million reviews where the reviewer says this book is like nothing they've ever read before. Well with 'Fated' that is honestly how I felt . . . Dace is mysterious yet warm, caring and in some ways shy and naïve. Daire is witty and strong- the kind of girl we all wish to be. There are so many interesting twists and on the edge of your seat moments. . .It's fun, exciting, sexual and in some places a little terrifying . . . it is so far the best thing I have read this year. If you're looking for a new series to get stuck into 'The Soul Seekers' is out of this world. . .”

And speaking of FATED, have you had a chance to check out THE SOUL SEEKERS board on Pinterest? It's filled with all kinds of visuals that inspired the characters and the world they live in--including pictures like this:

Also, over on THE SOUL SEEKERS Facebook page there's a free FATED e-sampler for you to download to your iPad, Kindle, Nook, and/or computer, so you can get an early peek at selected scenes from the book!

And, in addition to that, there's a super exclusive short story for friends of THE SOUL SEEKERS Facebook page where Ever Bloom from THE IMMORTALS meets Daire Santos from THE SOUL SEEKERS!!

I had so much fun putting these two very different characters together--I hope you enjoy reading about their meeting as much as I enjoyed writing it! Click HERE to check it out!

And, last but not least--the FATED tour plans are underway, and I'm thrilled to announce that my first stop will be in Albuquerque, New Mexico!! This is especially exciting because not only is New Mexico one of my favorite places to visit, but it's also where THE SOUL SEEKERS takes place!!
