Super 8 is now on Netflix

Just watched Super 8 on Netfix...Oh how I love my iPad. Yet another book or movie that is eerily similar to what I write. I don't want to give anything away for those of you who haven't seen the movie yet, but I was shocked toward the end when I figured out what the "thing" was creating. It reminded me of the star fire cube from my book, D.N.A. - David Noble, Alien. Which brings up another point that will soon be the subject of a blog series. I have NOT read books by people like Rachel Vincent, Amanda Hocking, or Pitticus Lore before releasing my material. Yet, funny enough, my fans keep telling me how my stories remind them of the Shifters series by Rachel Vincent (yep, it's about a werecat, ha-ha), Hollowlands and Hollowmen by Amanda Hocking, and of course, I Am Number Four by Pitticus Lore, which is very similar to D.N.A. Honestly, I get my inspiration from Netflix movies, especially the old B-rated flix. I like to think, "What if..." as I watch a new movie. So, there you have it, I'm a Netflix junkie, along with most of the other 711 Press scribes, as I hear it via Skype meetings. If you want to write a book, I suggest you subscribe to Netflix and do the same for creative inspiration.

D.N.A. is Underway!

The response to D.N.A. - David Noble, Alien, is amazing. I didn't expect it to outdo the Werecat launch, but it did just that. For those of you who are fans of movies like E.T., Super 8 and I Am Number Four, this movie book is for you. Thanks to my fan base for keeping me pumped to write more and more. I've got a lot more planned in the near future, so look for books from me in the coming months, but don't look too soon, because I'm not on the schedule for a while yet. I just released my first trilogy and a standalone alien saga on the heels of that so 711 Press isn't penciling me in any time soon. But I'll keep you posted.

D.N.A. Is Here!

Jami Lynn Saunders releases her fourth book today, D.N.A. - David Noble, Alienwhich is a departure from her apocalyptic trilogy, the Werecat Saga. In D.N.A., teen recluse David Noble is suddenly plagued by nightmares of alien abduction, and it doesn't take long before he realizes that some dreams do come true. David is genetically altered and is soon bonded to a being from a distant galaxy, and this allows him to tap into ancient knowledge that is now hidden in his subconscious; knowledge that allows him to devise a way to help his ancestor from another planet escape the horrors of dissection and examination by the US government and return home. Not only must David build a device required for interdimensional travel, he must also deal with the death of his father and elude a secret society of government agents without being killed. Now half alien, only David Noble holds the key to freeing his ancestor, whose sole purpose in coming to Earth was to present David with the means to prevent humans from destroying their planet.

This standalone tale will thrill fans of E.T. The Extraterrestrial and J.J. Abrams's Super 8. It is a whimiscal, sci-fi adventure told through the eyes of teenagers caught in the middle of a government conspiracy. Self-discovery is at the heart of D.N.A., as David Noble comes to understand, fully, who he really is and what he is capable of.
