New Release: Burning Doors by Renee N. Meland

Burning Doors

Renee N. Meland

Young Adult Dystopian


Cain Foley committed his first murder before he could even drive a car. Not that he would’ve had anywhere to drive to. When he was fifteen, America was one of the poorest countries in the world, and its’ citizens took their hatred of that fact out on each other through gangs and violence. Children barely tall enough for carnival rides peppered the streets selling drugs (or themselves) so they could buy their next meal.

Every night on the news, Cain watched as an angelic blonde woman who lost her own child swore she’d end it. She assaulted America’s televisions with praise for the Parental Morality Law: a set of rules that spells out exactly what it takes to be a parent in the eyes of the government, and the consequences of breaking those rules. He prayed every night that she’d come to rescue him before his father took off his belt again.

Before she could save him, Cain faced a fatal choice: fight back or die on the basement floor.

He chose life.

Now on the run, he finds himself being hunted by a police officer with his own special brand of torture. Before he can save even a handful of the children who have been swept up in the gang life, he must first cover up not one, but two murders: his father’s and one committed by a teenage madam who is either the love of his life, or his final undoing. As he feels himself being pushed further and further to the edge, he realizes that surviving his father was just the beginning.

The Shadow Aspect Pre-Order

Friday, April 24, 2015

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to share with you that I have The Shadow Aspect available for pre-order on Amazon! The novel will release in July (god willing!) :)

I'm really so pleased to finally bring you the continuation of Layla's story. This series has had a weird ride, but I am really gunning to finish the entire series 2015/2016. So here we go! I love playing in Layla's world again. Man, it's fun thinking up just how to describe the stink of zombies :) And for those of you who loved Midway, I think you'll really enjoy how Cricket and Layla come together.

Novel Description:

When Layla took the final step through the labyrinth, she thought she was saving the ones she loved. 

She couldn't have been more wrong. 

Layla and the other survivors now find themselves caught in a war for our world, the unwitting victims of a grudge seething for eons. Surviving the zombie apocalypse has become the least of their worries as they come up against vampires, shapeshifters, and fae. When she uncovers an unspeakable horror, whom can Layla trust? The carnie girl? The doctor searching for a cure? The tarot reader? The stranger with alluring gold eyes? Or the man she loves? 

The wrong choice could doom them all. 

When the world burns, mankind’s shadow side rises. Do we deserve to survive? 

Continue this award-winning zombie/dark fantasy genre mash-up series in Book 2, The Shadow Aspect.

Midway & The Harvesting on Audiobook: Giveaway!

Friday, April 10, 2015

I'm super excited to share the news that Layla and Cricket are now on audiobook! It took me awhile to find the exact right narrator for the series, but I am so pleased to introduce Kristin James, who narrated both books, to you. It's completely fin to have the book an audio, but I've also found it has a weird side effect on my writing. I'm working on The Shadow Aspect right now. I don't know how Cricket and Layla used to sound in my head as I wrote, but now I hear Kristin's narration and it feels perfectly natural. It's really fun to see how the creation of the audiobook project impacts the entire series!

About the Narrator

Kristin “KJ” James was born and raised in the Nashville, TN area. Acting has always been a passion of hers. Starting on the stage as early as preschool, KJ pursued her passion into college where she received a BA in Communication with a double emphasis in Theatre and Public Relations from Mississippi State University. After college she found herself more and more drawn to voice overs. Several classes, coaching sessions, seminars, research, and a closet-turned-studio later, and she now records and produces audiobooks on a regular basis. She has also done several radio commercials for clients such as Advance Financial, TriStar Health, and GAC.

When she’s not in her booth, you can find her crocheting, playing video games, or running agility with her dog, Zeus. If you’re unfamiliar with the sport, check out the video!
