It’s one year later. And everything has changed.

Remember The Second Chance Institute (SCI). Earth’s benevolent non-profit by day, Thera’s totalitarian regime by night. They’ve stepped up their game on Earth and on Thera–infiltrating political parties, preying on the downtrodden, and planning offensive maneuvers. And they’re handing out more “second chances” than ever before. The SCI’s abuse of their charter leads to Arbiter oversight and bitter consequences.

Remember Kira Donovan. Broken, burdened, and evading those who wish her harm, Kira enlists the Arbiters’ help when forced to return to the clutches of the SCI and her angry, estranged love.

Remember Blake Sundry. Exiled, determined, and packing an agenda, Blake seeks assistance on Earth and Thera to use his newfound knowledge to bring down the SCI.

Remember Ethan Darcton. Overworked, emotional, and holding a grudge, Ethan hunts down his stolen property, but finds himself in awkward territory, stuck between the Arbiters and the SCI.

Full of action, competing agendas, romantic entanglements, humor, twists and turns, arbitrate is book #2 in the award-winning, bestselling daynight series.

Note that there is final resolution to Kira’s romantic dilemma in arbitrate.

    I am probably one of your older readers @ 31, but daynight was great! I truly cannot wait for arbitrate.

      Are you kidding????? I’m 47. I cannot wait for Arbitrate. I just loved Daynight!!!!

  2. jennifer

    That is one awesome 78 year old:) Thanks for letting me know, because that’s pretty much all I read are books for young adults. I just find the stories are way more imaginative than books ment for older readers. You have real talent, thanks for creating an alternate world for us to escape to.

    When will arbitrate be released?

  4. Kevin

    Looking forward to the next book in this series! I could imagine writing from three perspectives could be a headache, but you did an amazing job on Daynight! You have become a favorite author and can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

    Just read Arbitrate… on my second read of the fantastic ride already! What an awesome book series!!! I am a 34 year old teacher, and let me tell you how much I need an escape from grading papers, paperwork, phone calls, and all other school-related drama… Arbitrate did just that for me and more! Well done, and am looking forward to the third in the series :)

  6. Stef Buckner

    Just read Arbitrate and it was fantastic! I am so beyond impressed, it went in a direction I never even considered possible! I am super pumped for Generate is it? I really hope you can get some more press for this series, because I think it would be amazing as a movie series! I find it so encouraging that you take the time to reply to all of your fans! Excited for all of your future works!

    Question, or suggestion really? I LOVED daynight (believe I borrowed with my Prime membership then bought to further reward your awesome work). I bought Clean Slate but waited awhile to read it and was totally lost, to the point that I had to skim daynight again. I read your comment that there would be no weaving the books together, basically, but you provided a brief background. In other words, you better read all the books and since there is so much detail and world building, keep it fresh, which I did. I’m almost done with arbitrate and, while I will leave my feelings for the review, I’m wondering if you have a glossary, including definitions of DNT, arbiters, second chancers, cleaving, etc. as well as a character guide and who is related/cleaved to whom, mother/father/sperm donors, etc. . I’m still not sure who Blake’s bio dad is! You could include it as a separate e-booklet free for readers or update current editions…not to tell you how to write! It just seems that the info is so easy for you that perhaps you’ve forgotten how complex it is for some readers; and I regularly read Tom Clancy, the master of complexity ;) Anyway just some input from a fellow, albeit struggling, writer. I love dystopians AND romance so I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot with you! Thanks for sharing your talent.

    I’ve really enjoyed this series. I first stumbled upon it with my amazon prime membership an have since bought the clean slate and arbitrate. I have enjoyed all of the books. Arbitrate was sometimes a challenge to follow from the three POVs but I still really loved it. Wondering what your timeline is for the release of generate and if you plan for this to be the final edition to the series.

    Thank you for taking me on an adventure.
