D.N.A.

Wow, 711 has kept me busy. FYI, my next Movie Book, D.N.A. is completed and I'm already on to two new trilogies. I'm not allowed to release the names of the books or divulge any information at this point because we're well over a year away from release. Daniel and Jaime said I write like an animal and it's now time to pace the releases. I just giggled at their response :) For my readers, I promise it will be worth the wait. The two new trilogies are similar to the Werecat Saga, but unique in their own way, and I believe they will be enough to keep you happy in an apocalyptic setting, yet with new twists and turns and original characters. I must say, the first trilogy I'm working on blows the Werecat Saga away in my opinion. I wish I could tell you more. I'll beg the guys to let me slip you some additional info soon :)

New Sample Chapters

Sample chapters for Nocturnal and Kill Factor: Serpent Head are now up.

For those of you who haven't been keeping up, Nocturnal is the final book in Jami Lynn Saunders' Werecat Saga, a thrilling post-apocalyptic series that features a young female heroine infected with a feline virus that enables her to morph into a hybrid snow leopard at will. Ferocious enemies stalk her at every turn, but she is determined to trek across the barren wastelands of a devastated future United States in search of a safehold for her kind.

Kill Factor is an ongoing series that features a band of rogue super agents headed by two disgruntled geniuses; their aim? the ultimate destruction of a private corporation that was once home to a secret government spy program known as Redrum. Now Redrum is a modern-day multi-national conglomerate with its hands in practically everything, though it has never reliquished itself of the spy program the government once hid.

Action and intrigue abound in these edge-of-your-seat action spy yarns, and the latese entry, Kill Factor: Serpent Head, is no exception.

So check out the sample chapters for Nocturnal and Kill Factor: Serpent Head and start your journey today. You'll probably want to start at the beginning, however. So the first books in these two series, Feral and Kill Factor, are required reading!

Let the Hunger Games Begin

As huge supporters of movies and television, especially great fiction books that have been converted for the small and large screen, 711 Press would like to show our support for the official release of the movie The Hunger Games, which is based on the book by Suzanne Collins. For those of you who are new to The Hunger Games, here is a synopsis of Book I of the trilogy:

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss's young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives. Collins's characters are completely realistic and sympathetic as they form alliances and friendships in the face of overwhelming odds; the plot is tense, dramatic, and engrossing. This book will definitely resonate with the generation raised on reality shows like 'Survivor' and 'American Gladiator.' Book one of a planned trilogy.

We'll go on record as saying we love post-apocalyptic, YA adventures, which is why we released the Werecat Saga by Jami Lynn Saunders. That said, The Hunger Games will whet your fiction appetite both onscreen and in print. If you haven't read Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games trilogy yet, (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay) check out Suzzanne's books on Amazon.
