Sometimes this is how I feel. I don't really know how else to put it. I don't know if I will ever go through with it, but I may always feel this way. Sometimes I wish there was someway to make it happen naturally, without surgery. But there really isn't. I don't know how anyone will react to this, but oh well.

Free Souls by Susan Kaye Quinn
(Book Three of the Mindjack Trilogy) Now Available!
When your mind is a weapon, freedom comes at a price.
Four months have passed since Kira left home to join Julian’s Jacker Freedom Alliance, but the hole in her heart still whistles empty where her boyfriend Raf used to be. She fills it with weapons training, JFA patrols, and an obsessive hunt for FBI agent Kestrel, ignoring Julian’s worries about her safety and repeated attempts to recruit her for his revolutionary chat-casts. When anti-jacker politician Vellus surrounds Jackertown with the National Guard, Kira discovers there’s more to Julian’s concerns than she knew, but she’s forced to take on a mission that neither want and that might be her last: assassinating Senator Vellus before he can snuff out Julian’s revolution and the jackers she’s come to love." imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;">

Early Praise for Free Souls

“Quinn paints a picture of a not-too-distant America where politicians inflame the hatred of one section of the populace for another—all for their own gain—and you worry that her world is not so far off from our own.”
Dianne Salerni, author of We Hear the Dead, The Caged Graves, and the forthcoming The Eighth Day

"Free Souls starts with a bang and doesn't let up. Like a mash-up of all your favorite science-fiction adventures from Star Wars to The Legend of Korra, it blends nonstop action, nail-biting escapes, and great romance. I absolutely loved it! A great series conclusion—a must-read."
Leigh Talbert Moore, author of Rouge and The Truth About Faking

“Susan did it again. Free Souls was WOW! I expected Kira to step up to her role as heroine but not like this. Surprises kept coming until the very end which tied up more loose ends than I knew existed. Warning: Don't start reading until you have time to finish. I didn't want to put Free Souls down for a second. It's that kind of book.”
Sher A. Hart, Goodreads Review

Mindjack BONUS CONTENT: Mindjack Memes

by Susan Kaye Quinn

[Ed. Note: In celebration of the release of my novel Closed Hearts, I've created bonus content that relates to the Mindjack Trilogy. This bonus content arises from the story time between Open Minds (Bk#1) and Closed Hearts (Bk#2) - it's not terribly spoiler-ish, but you'll enjoy it more if you've read Open Minds already.]

If you're like me, you're not really sure what the word "meme" means. Although I'm particularly fond of this definition:

meme3265 up826 down


2 : a parasitic code, a virus of the mind especially contagious to children and the impressionable 

A virus of the mind! Ya'll aren't children or impressionable, but I still expect these visual memes to mindjack their way into your heads (and feel free to Pinterest or Facebook them once they do):

For Hunger Games Fans...

Because Kira isn't the first to mindjack...< /div>

For Harry Potter Fans...

And one for Closed Hearts...

{picture me making these with a big old cheesy grin on my face}

So, obviously I've been playing around when I should have been writing. But there have to be some perks to this job, right? 


Closed Hearts (Mindjack #2)

$2.99 at AmazonBarnes and Noble (ebook and print)

When you control minds,

only your heart can be used against you.

Bestselling YA novel Open Minds, Book One of the Mindjack Trilogy, is available on AmazonBarnes and Noble, and iTunes. The sequel Closed Hearts has just been released. Susan Kaye Quinn's business card says "Author and Rocket Scientist," but she mostly plays on TwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.

So there is this book I really want to read, called Open Minds. It's SF, and I want to read it so bad. And the Author, Susan Kaye Quinn is giving out 5 copies. There's a catch though, after you read it, you have to give it to 5 other people, basically, you give your copy to someone else, who then reads it and gives it to someone else also, the cycle goes like that. The last person it is given to gets to either keep it, or continue the cycle. This is a great strategy for getting publicity, and it seems to be working for Susan Kaye Quinn.
