March 12, 2013 — Code is on bookshelves …. today! Purchase the third Virals adventure at bookstores EVERYWHERE!!! Buy CODE right now! The Virals are put to the ultimate test when they find a geocache containing an ornate puzzle box. Shelton decodes the cipher inside, only to find more tantalizing clues left by “The Gamemaster.” A second, greater geocache is within reach–if the Virals are up to the challenge.

Shift Releases Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

SHIFT — a brand spanking new Virals e-story — releases on 3/5! Here’s a brief description: Tory’s great aunt, Temperance Brennan, visits just in time to investigate a robbery at the Loggerhead Island Research Institute. As a renowned forensic anthropologist, Tempe is obviously qualified to figure out whodunit, but Tory and her Virals pack want to crack the case on their own. Yet the crime is puzzling. Who could have accessed the labs at LIRI, and how could they have gotten the equipment off the island? It’s Brennan vs. Brennan in this short story that gives readers a brand new insight into the world of the Virals. This story gives Virals fans a chance to see their world through a few very new perspectives. And Tempe fans will get a surprise as well. Pre-Order it now! (Seriously, go pre-order it. These links will help. You’re the best.) Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B7NPS06/ref=r_soa_w_d
