Ten Things I Want You To Know

Hi there,

I get a vast variety of questions from readers every day that I’ve compiled into this list of things I want you to know (in no particular order): 

1. If you can’t find the book you want in the marketplace that you want… check my website. I see questions from readers who are having trouble finding X book on Y retailer—often in the middle of the night my time—and I want you to know that all the books are on my website under along with links to EVERYWHERE you can buy them. You can also find the reading order for all my series and there’s even a tab on the top of the Books page to download a printable booklist so you can check off each book as you finish it. Here are some other helpful links:

2. If I’m coming to your area, you will receive an email to let you know when and where we might be able to connect. That’s why being on my newsletter mailing list (at is so key. We always have limited space so broadcasting these events on social media isn’t possible. Instead, we reach out to readers within 25 or 50 miles of where I’m going to be and accept RSVPs on a first-come, first-served basis. Watch your email! 

3. If you’re wondering why I and other authors release books on Tuesdays (I get a lot of questions about this one), there’s actually a good reason for that. It’s because—frankly—that’s the release date that gives us the best chance of making the bestseller lists. LOL—I know, I know, silly but there you have it. The lists record sales from Sunday to Saturday (NY Times/Wall Street Journal) and Monday to Sunday (USA Today), which is why we’re so “pushy” about trying to get our readers to buy the books during that all-important release week. 🙂 The more people who buy the books during release week, the higher we are on the lists. **ADDED BONUS INFO: Preorders count toward first week sales, which is why we’re always asking if you’ve preordered yet! 🙂 To be honest, I’m not really focused on making the lists, but it’s nice to see my books listed, and I’m always appreciative of the readers who put them there! Now you know why so many books are released on Tuesdays! 🙂

4. Every day until the release of Fatal Reckoning, I’m posting a new giveaway in the Fatal Series Reader Group. Join the group to comment on each post for a chance to win signed copies of the books and other fun prizes as we count down to the release of Fatal Reckoning.

5. The first book I ever wrote, Treading Water, is currently FREE in ebook format for only a couple more days. If you haven’t read this one yet, now would be a good time to start the series that started my career. And to those who will ask, YES, I am still hoping to write the fifth and final Treading Water book, featuring Maggie Harrington, in 2019. Click here to find the links to get Treading Water for free and act quickly! This offer is going away soon. 

6. I have three books currently up for preorder:

I’m currently writing three others:

  • Famous, Quantum Book 8
  • Till There Was You, Butler VT Book 4
  • One Year Home, the followup to Five Years Gone

More info about the three new books will be coming soon, so watch your email and social media for alerts when preorder links are available. I also hope to write another Gansett Island book this year. 

7. If you haven’t yet read the first chapter of Fatal Reckoning, this books contains a couple of BOMBSHELL developments in the series. Read the first chapter here (bring your tissues). You can also find preorder links on that page. 

8. If you’d like to get a TEXT message to let you know that I have a new book available, sign up here: and we’ll hit you up so you never miss a new book.

9. Did you know I have the Marie Force APP available on both the Apple and Android platforms? If not, download here:

10. The last thing I want you to know is how much I love my readers and appreciate your support of me and my books. Writing can be a lonely, solitary endeavor, but my wonderful readers make all the hard work so worth it with your boundless enthusiasm for more. Thank you for giving me this dream career!
