HAVEN: UPDATES AND FUTURE PROJECTS

Written by dcakers@dc-akers.com on March 21st, 2014. Posted in Haven News

Giddyup Lane 1I thought I would take a few minutes to share some updates as well as bring you up to speed regarding a few new projects.

Revenge of the Viper Update:
I’m happy to report Haven: Revenge of the Viper is doing quite well, so thank you to all the Haven fans for your continued support. You’re the BEST!

 

 

 

Smash -Book 2 -E-BOOK - BEST SELLERRevenge of the Viper Review:
The reviews are starting to roll in and I wanted to share few of them with you:

“It has been a long time since I stayed up most of the night reading a book. I did last night. I was just going to finish the chapter and then the battle began. I was caught up breathlessly fighting with Alisa protecting her children. I had tears of grief with Sam’s fragile sense of honor. I laughed at the dry sense of humor of Vallen. Demetrius became my protector. Let me not forget Travis’s ability to diffuse any tense moment with his off-handed remarks. And then, there will be Book #3: Haven: Elixir of Life; I cannot wait.

D.C. Akers is a master of suspense. His ability to describe the characters and battle scenes is so realistic; I can see them as if I were watching a video. I was riveted to the written word and scenes before me.” – Linda Skinner

“I couldn’t wait to read this book and it was everything I thought it would be and more. I cried, laughed and thought this is cool magic. Wish I could be them and can’t wait to see what happens next with the kids lives, seeing they are changed forever. – Nancy Reyes

This installment of the Haven Series is a really quick, well written, and exciting read! There are edge-of-your-seat fight scenes, wicked cool magic, and emotions through the roof … all written engagingly and amazingly. The Vipers are written terrifyingly well, in that they are actually nightmares brought to life. The characters are very relatable in their reactions and I love all of the references to Star Wars, Star Trek, and Disney. With new questions brought up in the plot, I can hardly wait to read what happens next!” – Ingrid M

New Audiobook:
Production started a week ago for two new audiobooks, Haven: Revenge of the Viper and the Haven Series Collection. Narrator Lauren Harris will be returning to the project and she will have her work cut out for her as Revenge of the Viper calls for numerous dialects covering multiple nationalities. I can’t wait to get a sample! You can check out a sample of her work here with Haven: A Stranger Magic.

New Website:
We are in the final stages of the new website so I hope to have that wrapped up by April 1st.

HAVEN: A STRANGER MAGIC BREAKS INTO AMAZON’S (USA) TOP 100 IN KINDLE

HAVEN: A STRANGER MAGIC BREAKS INTO AMAZON (USA) TOP 100 IN KINDLE BOOKS

Haven: A Stranger Magic has not only hit #1 in all its major categories in the past, but now has broken into Amazon’s (USA) TOP 100 in Kindle books. The top 100 Bestsellers of Kindle is dominated by romance novels. So the fact that Haven: A Stranger Magic is a novella rather than a novel, and fantasy fiction … well, that is mind-blowing to say the least.

Thank you Haven fans! Your passion and devotion has taken Sam, Travis, and the rest of the Haven gang places we never thought possible.

Haven: Revenge of the Viper

Haven: Revenge of the Viper

The Great War of Haven ended thirteen years ago but Alisa Dalcome is about to discover that the war did not end for her. Placed on Earth as a sleeper agent for the Majesty of Haven, Alisa had one objective—protect the portal keys at all costs. In the wrong hands the magical keys could jeopardize the safety of everyone on Haven. But Alisa’s relocation was more than just Majesty business; it was also a chance for her to escape her enemies, enemies that still wanted her dead. Alisa wasn’t thinking about herself when she left Haven, she was thinking about her children Sam and Sarah. The Great War had already taken her husband Rylan; she would be damned if she would let it take her children too. But what Alisa didn’t count on was her inquisitive son Sam and his friend Travis. Sam’s world has turned upside down after discovering magic is real. After barely escaping the caves Sam begins to piece together the past day’s events when he stumbles onto his mother’s secret past. With the clues mounting, Sam must dig deeper to uncover the truth that could change his life forever.

But Sam doesn’t realize that his mother’s past has already caught up with them. Hidden within the shadows nearby is Haven’s most malevolent predator—the Viper. A hunter forged from the blackest of magic, it watches, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Can Sam uncover the truth in time or will his mother’s past collide with the present placing them all in grave danger?
